The Lost Boys Is Getting a Comic Book Sequel

14 July 2016 4:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Truth, justice and the American way prevail! It seems we're getting a true Lost Boys 2, only in the form of a comic. 30 years removed from the release of the original cult classic, this is perhaps the only way to go, especially since one of the main stars has long since drifted into the chilly night air of Santa Carla. The Lost Boys sequel comic will pick up where we last left Sam, Mike, his mother and their vampire fighting Grandpa.

There's no denying that The Lost Boys is an 80s cult classic that has a legion of fans. But the franchise hasn't exactly faired well over the past few decades. The movie was supposed to get a true sequel heading into the 90s, which never happened. It would have revolved around an all-girl vampire coven, and may have just been too far ahead of its time. It wasn't until 2008 that »

‘The Lost Boys’ Sequel Comic in the Works from Vertigo (Exclusive)

14 July 2016 1:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Lost Boys” never grow old and never die, which means it’s never too late for a sequel to the cult classic film. Variety can exclusively reveal that the beloved ’80s horror-comedy will receive a sequel comic book in the form of a new miniseries from Vertigo, which will hit shelves on October 12.

Featuring the surviving characters from the film, “The Lost Boys” comic is being crafted by horror veterans, writer Tim Seeley (an alum of DC’s “Grayson” and “Nightwing,” and creator of “Hack/Slash”) and artists Scott Godlewski (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Copperhead”) and Patricia Mulvihill (“The Dark & Bloody,” “Hellblazer”), with covers by Tony Harris. The team promises to deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987.

In the new miniseries, Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after »

'Difficult People': How Julie Klausner Graduated from TV Superfan to TV Queen

14 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"When did comedies become half-hour dramas?"

These words, uttered by Billy Eichner via the acid pen of Julie Klausner in the newly launched second season of her Hulu sitcom Difficult People, come from a place of love. Klausner loves TV like a mother loves her child – which is to say she always wants it to do and be better. A lifelong acolyte of the medium, she's spent most of her life hovering around its fringes – consuming it by the binge-ful, recapping shows online, eventually landing staff writing gigs here and there. »

21 June 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

20th Century Fox Television has inked an overall deal with “Life in Pieces” creator Justin Adler, Variety has learned.

The pact secures Adler’s exec producing and writing responsibilities on “Life in Pieces” for two years, plus allows him to bring development projects into the studio.

“‘Life in Pieces’ is as unique and groundbreaking in its format as it is heartwarming and funny — it’s no wonder it became the highest rated new comedy of last season. Full credit goes entirely to its creator Justin Adler, who wrote the pilot on spec and delivered an inspired take on the family sitcom based on experiences and relationships from his own life. This deal keeps this gifted, inventive writer we love running the show, and allows us to develop other projects with him going forward,” said Jonnie Davis, 20th Century Fox Television president of creative affairs.

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy voters love Allison Janney, who already has a total of six statuettes for her work on three different shows — “The West Wing,” “Mom” and “Masters of Sex.” Janney looks to be a sure thing to land a third consecutive nomination for her work on “Mom” this year, having won the last two years in a row.

Can anyone overtake Janney? Perhaps previous winner Julie Bowen, who continues to score nominations even when other “Modern Family” co-stars have dropped off the list. If there’s a surge of love for the former champ, her co-star Sofia Vergara could also score another nomination.

There are plenty of previous nominees who have yet to win, including Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”), Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”), Gaby Hoffmann (“Transparent”), Jane Krakowski (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Niecy Nash (“Getting On”). Hoffmann’s co-stars Judith Light and Amy Landecker also had standout years, while HBO »

Sisters DVD Review

20 April 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sisters DVD Review by Dan Bullock

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are two of a very unique kind on the comedy circuit: original, funny and effortless in their work. Sisters seems like a perfect platform for their talents and, happily, it’s rather excellent. Written by Paula Pell (a long-time writer on SNL) and directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect), there’s a fine ensemble cast and crew who are moulded together to create something unpredictably refreshing.

Fey and Poehler play two sisters who, in character, are poles apart with Fey particularly taking on a very different role to the one we know in 30 Rock. She plays Kate Ellis, a single Mum who’s the outlandish sibling taking on life with little thought about consequence and lives place-to-place i.e. wherever someone will offer her a sofa. Poehler is Maura, more organised, tidy and you get the drift. There’s »
