Tyler Perry Joins Gerard Barrett’s Brain On Fire

20 July 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There has been a lot of movement, cast wise, lately on Gerard Barrett’s Glassland follow-up, Brain on Fire, over the last few day, with Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) and Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) joining Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick Ass), Thomas Mann (the upcoming Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) and Jenny Slate (Obvious Child) for the Irish director’s account of Susannah Cahalan’s month long descent into madness. Now, the cast grows by one, with Tyler Perry (Gone Girl) joining the project, which is currently in production in Canada. All in all, this is pretty impressive line up for Barrett’s third feature. Brain on Fire is set for release sometime next year. »

Richard Armitage And Carrie-Anne Moss Join Brain On Fire

16 July 2015 5:37 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Chloë Moretz in place as the lead in Brain On Fire – taking over from a suddenly busy Dakota Fanning – the rest of the cast is being announced. Richard Armitage and Carrie-Anne Moss are the latest recruits. Brain On Fire has been adapted from Susannah Cahalan’s memoir, which was subtitled My Month Of Madness. The book chronicles Cahalan’s real-life experiences being diagnosed with a mystery illness that left her labelled psychotic, violent, and a dangerous flight risk. She woke up alone in a hospital room confined to the bed, unable to speak or move and with no memory of what happened. In the maelstrom, she’d lost everything: a promising newspaper career and her first serious relationship, and it took an intuitive doctor, a lot of strength and the support of her family to get through it.And now we know who will be making up the key components of that family, »

New Us sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows for 2016

15 July 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...

The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.

So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.

Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

Aka Jessica Jones (Netflix)

Part of Netflix’s own connected slice of the McU, there has been a lot of confusion over when we »
