Crackle Plans A "Snatch" TV Series

20 April 2016 8:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Crackle has ordered a ten-episode, one-hour drama series based on Guy Ritchie's 2000 heist film "Snatch".

Said to be in the vein of FX's "Fargo," the series intends to continue the spirit and setting of the original film, but at the same time "create a new world".

The first season is inspired by a real-life heist in London and follows a group of twenty-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.

The hoods must quickly learn to navigate London's underworld in encounters with rogue cops, gypsy fighters, international mobsters and local villains descend. No air date has yet been set.

Benicio Del Toro, Brad Pitt, Vinnie Jones, Dennis Farina, Jason Flemyng and Jason Statham starred in the original film.

Viy 2 Heads To China, Recruits Jackie Chan

22 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The fact that Oleg Stepchenko's Russian ghost story Viy exists at all is something of a minor miracle. Roughly a decade from the release of the first teasers to the film actually reaching completion it was the near definition of a troubled production, tearing through multiple production companies, suffering massive cost over runs, and being extensively rewritten and reverse engineered more than once through production until it finally ended up as an international period fantasy with Charles Dance and Jason Flemyng in the lead role. And after having survived the experience Stepchenko is doing the natural thing: He's making another one. He's heading to China to do it. And he's added Jackie Chan to the mix.

Emily S. Whitten: Seven Movies for Surviving Snowzilla

26 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past weekend we here in Washington DC got a lot of snow. Um… “A whole lot of snow”? …Okay, how about, “a metric ton of snow”? Ooh… “The fourth heaviest snowstorm dating to 1884.” There. I think that sums it up nicely.

Given this, I (not even kidding) have not left my home in five days (but I’m still sane! No really, I promise! The purple bunnies in my pantry told me so.) And of course, being a very practical person, since I knew the storm was coming I ensured I was well-stocked with all the necessary items beforehand. But then, around the end of Day 1, as the snowdrifts began inching into the two-foot range on my windowsills, I began to wonder what I would do to entertain myself if the power went out (taking with it, one might assume, the Internet).

“Ah-ha!” I said to myself. “I have »
