Castlevania Showrunner Adi Shankar Is Working On An R-Rated Power Rangers Animated Series

10 February 2017 2:26 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Two years ago, director Joseph Khan and producer Adi Shankar presented Power/Rangers, a short fan film based on Saban's colorful heroes of the same name. The film, which starred Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek, was an R-rated take on the kid-friendly Power Rangers mythos, with plenty of violent action and mature themes. Saban wasn't exactly thrilled with the film, as they were working on their own reboot that is now due for release in a few months. Shankar initially said the film was meant as a standalone, mature analysis of the Power Rangers concept, but it seems that he now has something a little more ambitious in mind. In an interview with Polygon, Shankar confirmed that he is working on an R-rated Power Rangers animated series that would adapt the first three seasons of the original TV show. “It’s a complete retelling of the first three seasons, »

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Will Be Kevin Smith's Next Movie

9 February 2017 3:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past several years, filmmaker Kevin Smith has been talking about making sequels to his first two films, with Clerks III and Mallrats 2 both being developed extensively. At one point, the Mallrats sequel was going to become a TV show, but today the filmmaker announced that his next project will actually be a remake of his 2001 comedy Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. The filmmaker announced the news with a lengthy statement on Instagram. Here's the first half of that statement below, where he reveals what happened to both the Clerks III and Mallrats 2 projects.

"This is not a drill! This is an actual image from my laptop! Yes, Kids - @jayandsilentbob are coming back! Here's the story: Sadly, Clerks III can't happen (one of our four leads opted out of the flick). So I worked on a #Mallrats movie instead... which also didn't happen because it turned into a #Mallrats series. »

Diplo Is Getting His Own TV Show Starring James Van Der Beek

5 January 2017 11:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there anything Diplo can’t do? The 38-year-old producer, real name Wesley Pentz, has established himself as one of the hottest acts in dance music, releasing hits as a solo act, with Skrillex as half of Jack Ü, and with his dancehall trio Major Lazer. While the success of his music career speaks for itself, it looks like the producer is ready to immortalize it on celluloid as he announces his upcoming show What Would Diplo Do? for Viceland.

The unlikely show will star an even more unlikely James Van Der Beek as Diplo, who rose to prominence for his titular role on Dawson’s Creek. Viceland has ordered six episodes of the show to start, which will serve as a comedic exposé into the life of the world class DJ.

Diplo and Van Der Beek will serve as executive producers alongside Kevin Ksatsu, while Oscar winner and Viceland »

James Van Der Beek Will Play Diplo In New Viceland TV Series

5 January 2017 8:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Is Diplo still cool? I honestly have no idea, but it seems Viceland thinks the DJ has enough juice behind him to power their first scripted TV show. Or at least his name, anyway….

The hipster network has teamed with A+E for their first script show, titled, “What Would Diplo Do?” Yes, really. Diplo himself is executive producing the show that will see former “Dawson’s Creek” heartthrob James Van Der Beek playing a fictionalized version of the DJ that will feature “parables about life” in a show that’s described as “Louie” meets “WorldStar Hip Hop” meets “This Is Spinal Tap.”

Incidentally, this whole series was inspired by “A Day In The Life Of Diplo,” a concert promo released last summer that first featured Van Der Beek playing Diplo, and even the actor is as surprised as you are that he’s now leading a show.
