Richie Mehta to direct Jay Baruchel in Baseballissimo

11 May 2017 5:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to THR, Richie Mehta (Siddharth, Amal) has signed on to direct Jay Baruchel (Goon: Last of the Enforcers) in Baseballissimo, an indie drama about a minor-league pitcher on an Italian baseball team.

The film has been written by Baruchel and his wiring partner Jesse Chabot (Random Acts of Violence) and originally had Jacob Tierney attached to direct and Anton Yelchin set for the lead role of Kyle Buffone, a rising minor-league baseball player who gets detoured on the way to major-league stardom by pitching for the Peones, a team in Italy.

The project was put on hold following Yelchin’s untimely death last year, but is now moving forward, and the search is underway for an actor to take on the lead. It is being shopped to potential buyers at Cannes this month. »

Dozens of TV Shows Canceled Across Networks Ahead of Upfronts

11 May 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s that time of year again. As the major networks prepare for annual upfront presentations in New York next week, they’re sharpening their axes, canceling shows left and right to make room for new titles in the fall. The house-cleaning includes both freshmen series like Fox’s trio of newcomers — “Son of Zorn,” “Making History,” and “APB” — bubble shows like “Sleepy Hollow,” and veterans like Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” on ABC.


Sleepy Hollow”: After developing a loyal fanbase, “Sleepy Hollow,” starring Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, was canceled after four seasons. The supernatural drama saw its ratings drop sharply in Season 4, averaging a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 1.9 million total viewers — down 40% in the demo and and 37% in viewers from the previous season.

Charlie Hunnam Captivates on Screen, but He's Even Better in Real Life

28 April 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty/Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic Charlie Hunnam is dancing within seconds of our introduction. "I just invented a Popsugar dance," he says. "Do you want to see it?" I tell him that I absolutely do, of course, and soon he's half bent over while punching the air with both arms, doing what can best be described as a victory dance. When I admit that I'd kill to have his moves on video, he just laughs, taking a seat at our small table and sitting back in his chair, ready for what must feel like the millionth interview of the week. If anybody deserves a victory dance right now, it's Hunnam. The 37-year-old actor is in the midst of a jam-packed press circuit as the star of two of Spring's most buzzed-about movies, King Arthur and The Lost City of Z. We meet during a press junket for the latter, »

Fxx has opted not to order a fourth season of comedy series Man Seeking Woman. The decision comes a month after the show starring Jay Baruchel ended its Season 3 run, giving FX brass time to analyze delayed viewing data. In the end, despite continuous strong critical response, Man Seeking Woman‘s ratings performance was deemed insufficient to support another renewal.

Fxx’s ‘Man Seeking Woman’ Canceled

4 April 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fxx comedy “Man Seeking Woman” has been canceled following a three-season run.

Created by Simon Rich and based on his book of short stories “The Last Girlfriend on Earth,” “Man Seeking Woman” starred Jay Baruchel, Eric Andre, Britt Lower, and Katie Findlay in an absurdist comedy about dating life. Rich served as executive producer alongside Jonathan Krisel, Andrew Singer, Lorne Michaels, and Michaels’ Broadway Video. The series was produced by FX productions.

Season three of “Man Seeking Woman” ended in March. Although the season was well-reviewed — garnering an 89 score on Metacritic and 100% on Rotten Tomatoes — it was a poor ratings performer. In Nielsen live-plus-seven numbers, season three averaged 367,000 total viewers and 268,000 viewers ages 18-49 — retaining only 35% of the audience drawn by lead-in “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

Speaking at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in January, Rich addressed the show’s evolution in its third season.

Newswire: Screenwriters slap Seth Rogen’s name onto their script in misguided attempt to get it read

29 March 2017 7:28 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

In a move that kind of sounds like the first act of a mid-tier Seth Rogen comedy from a couple of years ago—maybe with Jay Baruchel or Craig Robinson in a supporting role—a pair of unknown-but-ambitious Hollywood screenwriters were recently caught sticking Rogen’s name on their screenplay in an effort to get it read. According to The Hollywood Reporter, would-be writers Jonathan Witz and Jeremy Spektor slapped Rogen and his frequent writing partner Evan Goldberg’s name and production company on their script for a Jewish mafia movie titled Kosher Nostra, in the hopes that it would get past Hollywood “gatekeepers” and into the hands of directors and producers—not to mention Rogen himself.

“Like any young writer, we all have our heroes—Seth and Evan are those guys for us,” Spektor told reporters when asked about the stunt. Meanwhile, Witz cited the famous story of Steven »

How To Train Your Dragon 3 Is The Movie The Series Deserves

26 March 2017 9:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given how successful the franchise has been up to this point, it’s a bit surprising that it’s taken so damn long for How To Train Your Dragon 3 to get off the ground. Granted, animated films often do have long productions, but still, the last film flew into theatres in 2014 and the threequel isn’t set to arrive until 2019. That’s a five year gap, which is a long time for any series – animated or not.

Still, interest in the franchise remains high, and fans are eager for any and all tidbits they can get their hands on as the long wait continues. Thankfully, star Jay Baruchel recently offered an update while speaking on the JoBlo Movie Show podcast, revealing that he’s already begun work on it.

I’ve already done a number of recording sessions for that one. Once every 2-4 months I will work for »
