"Yes, we're in the early stages of developing a new take on Xena and we're looking for a writer. We want to do it. I don't think it's just a continuation, but we haven't gotten that far. I think it's a great character, and we should try to figure out how to revive it somehow. There is a deal with Sam and Rob Tapert to produce, »

20 July 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As the hit fantasy series Xena: Warrior Princess nears its 20th Anniversary later this year, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that NBC and NBCUniversal are in the early stages of developing a reboot of the beloved fantasy series. The show is being eyed for a 2016 debut, with original executive producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert involved in the project, which is being described as a "modern reboot." Original series star Lucy Lawless is being eyed for a role on screen, as well as behind-the-scenes, possibly as a producer.

Insiders say that NBC hopes to turn this into an ongoing series that could potentially run for several seasons. Sources claim that the network want the new Xena to have the "charisma and charm of »

"Xena: Warrior Princess" Reboot Planned

20 July 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Lucy Lawless expressed interest in the idea at Comic Con last week, and today comes word that NBC Universal International is exploring a reboot of beloved action-adventure series "Xena: Warrior Princess" says THR.

Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, who created and served as executive producers on the original show, are reportedly said to be currently searching for a writer for the project which is in extremely early development stages and is being dubbed a "modern reboot".

It's unclear what role original star Lawless would have in the project though its indicated she's being sought for both on and offscreen roles in the new series. The plan is for a "sophisticated and smart superhero for a new generation" and will likely be an ongoing series as opposed to an event series revival (ala "The X-Files," "24") with the first season to premiere next year.

Into The Badlands: 10 Things To Know About the Dystopian Martial Arts Series

11 July 2015 10:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Dystopia is so in. Why do people have such a predilection for “the end of times”? Is it a means to feel important, the thought of being there when it all fell apart, of living through ‘interesting times’? Is it a passive-aggressive means to be freed of the drudgery of daily minutiae, of repeating the same ol’ schedule day after day? Do people dream of how they would fare when the gloves of civility are off and all that remains is base amoral instinct? Sometimes it feels like every young adult novel written in the past ten years is set in some not-so-far-off version of dystopia. Film and television have quickly followed suit, The Walking Dead is the biggest show on television and Mad Max: Fury Road reignited the once dormant Ozploitation franchise. Now entering into this dystopia-saturated media landscape, Into the Badlands, mixes martial arts and samurai film aesthetics into this gritty & bleak genre. »

Sony Greenlights The Equalizer 2 for 2017

12 June 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Sony sets Release Date for Sequel to Antoine Fuqua‘s The Equalizer. Sony has officially given The Equalizer 2 a release date, providing complete assurance that this is actually happening. The Equalizer 2 will be released on September 29, 2017.

I haven’t seen the initial entry into this soon-to-be-franchise yet, but from what I’ve heard its a fairly average Denzel Is The Man action-thriller. I’ve seen my fair share of those, and don’t feel the need to spend time on the lesser ones. After all, can you get a cooler Denzel than the Man on Fire (2004), Training Day (2001), or American Gangster (2007) variety? In any case, Denzel Washington is set to return, no word on Antoine Fuqua yet.

On the production of the first film:

The Equalizer is a 2014 American neo-noir action thriller film directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by Richard Wenk, nominally based on the television series of the same name. »

22 April 2015 11:22 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sony Pictures has been busy at CinemaCon this week unveiling its slate of upcoming films, and we now know a sequel for The Equalizer is among them.

The studio company didn't elaborate on the project, but a follow-up comes as no surprise after the first earned $192 million worldwide at the box office last year.

Denzel Washington is expected to return for The Equalizer 2 as vigilante Robert McCall, who single-handedly took on a bunch of violent Russian mobsters last time round.

Marton Csokas played the boss of the group and main antagonist Teddy, while Chloë Grace Moretz also starred as teen victim Teri.

The Equalizer is based on a TV series, which originally aired on CBS between 1985 and 1989.

Also among Sony's big announcements was news of a new animated Spider-Man movie, due out in 2018.

Denzel Washington’s ‘The Equalizer’ to Get Sequel

22 April 2015 7:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony has officially announced a sequel to the Denzel Washington thriller “The Equalizer.”

Rumors of an “Equalizer” follow-up began months before the R-rated auctioneer opened in September, but it was the film’s strong box office results and home entertainment sales that ultimately pulled the trigger on the second installment.

Washington is expected to reprise his role as vigilante Robert McCall in “Equalizer 2.” Chloe Moretz and Marton Csokas co-starred in the original.

Based on the 1980s TV series, “The Equalizer” earned over $192 million at the global box office last year. It was co-financed by Village Roadshow and debuted at the Toronto Film Festival.

Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) directed the first “Equalizer.” It’s unknown whether he’ll return for the sequel. He and Washington are next re-teaming on MGM’s remake of “Magnificent Seven,” which reunites the duo with “Training Day” actor Ethan Hawke.

Sony also announced a new “Spider-Man »
