"Archer and Armstrong" Film In The Works

16 July 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sean Daniel Company is set to produce a film adaptation of Valiant Entertainment's comic series "Archer & Armstrong". Said comic, originally created in 1992, was revived two years ago.

The action buddy comedy follows a Obadiah Archer, a young man raised in a Kansas evangelical cult who has been raised and trained to defeat the ultimate evildoer.

One problem, his enemy is actually a drunken immortal calling himself Armstrong who couldn’t be less interested in bringing about the apocalypse. Obadiah's own parents and the cult they belong to might have slightly less trustworthy ambitions.

BenDavid Grabinski penned the script while Dinesh Shamdasani, Sean Daniel and Jason Brown will produce.

The Mummy Reboot Loses Another Director

7 May 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We have bad news for horror fans hoping the next version of The Mummy would venture more into horror territory. While Len Wiseman (UnderworldTotal Recall) was originally set to direct the next reboot of The Mummy franchise, he left due to scheduling conflicts and Mama director Andy Muschietti boarded the project. 

This time creative differences are to be blamed for Andy Muschetti leaving, with The Wrap reporting that he “wanted to deliver a darker take rather than the four-quadrant, more family-friendly action-adventure blockbuster that Universal now has in mind.”

The Mummy was scheduled for release on April 22nd, 2016 and there is no word on if that date has been pushed back or who Universal is looking to replace Muschetti. Others still involved on the project include producers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Sean Daniel, and it’s likely they’ll continue to move forward with the screenplay from Jon Spaihts »

Universal's ‘Mummy’ Reboot Loses ‘Mama’ Director Andy Muschetti (Exclusive)

6 May 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Mama” director Andy Muschetti has exited Universal's reboot of “The Mummy” due to creative differences, TheWrap has learned. Jon Spaihts wrote the current draft of the script, which reimagined “The Mummy” franchise in modern day with new characters not seen in previous iterations and a protagonist imbued with a human personality. Sean Daniel is producing the planned tentpole with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who recently parted ways regarding feature projects, though their split is unrelated to Muschetti's amicable exit from “The Mummy.” Also read: Director Len Wiseman Exits ‘The Mummy’ Reboot at Universal When Len Wiseman was previously attached to direct “The Mummy, »

Britain's Got Talent Jack Pack: Are they just a band for Mother's Day?

6 May 2014 4:49 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent group Jack Pack have suggested that they have a wider reach than just Mother's Day albums.

The four-piece - Adam, Alfie, Andrew and Sean - told Digital Spy today that they were thrilled to be compared to Michael Bublé, with Alfie pointing out that he appeals to a "vast audience" and Andrew saying he has made the swing genre "fashionable".

Asked if Jack Pack can appeal to a wide group of people, Andrew replied: "There's no reason why the songs can't. It's the songs that do it - they're phenomenal."

Alfie said that the genre is "so cool" and has "sex appeal", while Adam added: "I think it's a timeless genre really. I think you're never going to get away from categories of Christmas and Mother's Day and things like that, just because they're perfect songs for that time.

Bgt Jack Pack star on X Factor past: 'There's more passion this time'

6 May 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent swing singers Jack Pack have defended their experience of singing.

The quartet - Adam, Alfie, Andrew and Sean - won their place in the next round on Saturday night (May 3) but some reports later criticised the fact that they had experience of performing.

However, speaking to Digital Spy today, the men insisted that they're still a new band.

"Obviously, it would be silly to say we'd never sang in our lives before, so we have all done the odd gig and stuff on our own," Alfie said. "But this is brand new to us as a group - this was the first time we'd sung together. And also, gigging in the past, none of us earned great money doing that, which is why we had our day jobs as well.

"Now we're focusing on this and seeing where we're going. Obviously this would be our dream to do this as a group. »

Britain's Got Talent episode 4: The good, the bad & the bizarre

3 May 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We're already into the fourth week of auditions on Britain's Got Talent, and as always, there was a huge variety of acts. Sure, we got our singers and dancers - but of course there were some slightly more 'unusual'. But Digital Spy is here to round up all the action, so read on for the good, the bad and the bizarre...

The Good...

Patsy May: Well, that's certainly one way to start a show! Puppet Patsy was great fun - just as cheeky, flirtatious and mischievous as you would hope. The vixen finally made it to the stage after demanding lattes, perving over other contestants, and talking about how she wants to be the world's biggest celebrity. Okay, so she's kind of similar to Miss Piggy (except not a pig), but at least she's good. I mean, maybe I shouldn't have found it funny, but I couldn't help but chuckle »

Da Vinci’s Demons, Ep. 2.06: “The Rope of the Dead” is exactly what Starz should be looking for

Da Vinci’s Demons, Season 2: Episode 6 – “The Rope of the Dead”

Written by David S. Goyer & Matt Fraction

Directed by Jon Jones

Airs Saturday nights at 9 on Starz

Ever since Spartacus, the series which will most likely remain the network’s standard forever, Starz has been trying to build a brand that works for them as a premium cable network. That branding, unfortunately, doesn’t allow for a series like Magic City, which was better than it needed to be in its short run. However, the intent to create an identity in contrast to what HBO and Showtime do is one that I find admirable. And, finally, I think Starz knows exactly what it needs. “The Rope of the Dead” is that thing. It is the perfect blend of high octane action, visual spectacle (enhanced by a little bit of sexiness, of course) and powerfully emotional character beats. The »

Burnett, Downey board Ben-Hur

25 April 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mark Burnett and Roma Downey continue their thrust into feature production and have joined MGM and Paramount on the classic remake, set to open on February 26, 2016.

Timur Bekmambetov will direct the story of a wrongly accused nobleman condemned to years of slavery who exacts revenge on his best friend.

Flush from the success of Son Of God, the feature version of their smash series The Bible, the husband-and-wife producing team join producers Sean Daniel and Joni Levin.

Burnett will produce and Downey serve as executive producer alongside John Ridley, Keith Clarke and Jason F Brown.

In keeping with the outlook of Burnett and Downey, the film will focus on the nature of faith and revisit the themes of Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ. Ridley will revise Clarke’s screenplay.

MGM will handle production. Paramount will distribute worldwide while MGM retains select territories and all television rights.
