AMC halted production of the show’s eighth season in wake of the tragedy. Bernecker was shooting a scene in which he was supposed to fall off a 20-foot balcony onto a safety cushion below. He missed the cushion and hit the concrete instead.
Celebrities, including his “Walking Dead” castmates, offered condolences on Twitter to the veteran stunt performer and fight choreographer.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan on the series, penned, “Deep sorrow today, and for every tomorrow. Love, respect, and condolences to John’s family and friends. He will be forever missed.”

The site reports that Netflix is currently in talks to acquire the project from Universal Pictures, where it was set up four years ago. John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks, The Founder) will direct, and has rewritten an earlier script from John Fusco (Young Guns, Hidalgo).
Rather than focussing on the two outlaw lovers, famously portrayed by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway in 1967’s Bonnie & Clyde, Highwayman will explore the story from the point of view of the posse assembled by Hamer to bring their violent crime spree to and end.

Fox’s Wolverine film posted $33.1 million on Friday from 4,071 locations, raising its three-day estimate to over $80 million. To become the largest opening on 2017 so far, the movie need only top “The Lego Batman Movie’s” $53 million launch.
“Logan” follows an aged Wolverine who is attempting to hide from the world until a mysterious mutant played by Dafne Keen arrives to send him on one final journey. “Logan” cost $97 million to produce, and is the widest domestic opening ever for an R-rated film. Critics are praising the film — it currently has a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes. James Mangold directed the film, which Jackman has said will be his last as Wolverine. Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook and Stephen Merchant also star.
Berlin Film Review: ‘Logan’
Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” from Universal and Blumhouse, looks to land solidly in second
This film is impossible to review from a basis of the spirit, because believers and lovers of the novel won’t care what a snotty critic has to say regarding the weird-but-soft encounter of a desperate man with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. But I can judge it as a film, and it really needed more character development. The wife of the emotionally hurt man is nearly invisible, the religiosity of the family is never really explored and the next door neighbor, a presumably good Christian man, seems oddly clingy to his sad buddy.

Marco Polo will not return for a third season, as Netflix pulls the plug on its historical epic...
Here's a surprising one: Netflix has pulled the plug on Marco Polo, opting to end the historical drama series after two seasons rather than renewing it for a third run.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, as well as revealing that Netflix and the show's producers The Weinstein Company had until the end of the year to make a decision, before their options on the cast's contracts would expire. THR also cites a staggering figure from an unnamed source: Marco Polo purportedly lost Netflix $200 million.
Marco Polo - which starred Lorenzo Richelmy and Benedict Wong - began in 2014 and consisted of 20 full episodes and one half-length Christmas special.
Netflix's original content chief Cindy Holland said this in a statement:
"We want to thank and are grateful to our
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the cancellation, which makes Polo the first Netflix original series not to reach a third season. Lorenzo Richelmy starred as the legendary merchant who travelled from Italy to China and eventually served in the court of the Mongol ruler Kublai Khan (Benedict Wong).

Marco Polo debuted in 2014, and had a reported budget of $90 million for its first season, rivaling HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Originally developed at Starz, “Marco Polo” premiered in 2014, with its second season debuting earlier this year. It becomes one of only a handful of original series to be canceled by Netflix, including “Bloodline,” “Hemlock Grove,” and “Lillyhammer.”
The series starred Lorenzo Richelmy as the titular Italian explorer and Benedict Wong as Kublai Khan. It was also among the more ambitious and costly efforts in the history f the company’s original series. Season one cost a reported $90 million. Production for that first season included a construction crew of 400 and an art department of 160.
In his 2014 review of the first season for Variety, Brian Lowry wrote, “While ‘Marco Polo’ possesses scope, scale and an inordinate amount of exposed skin, the series exhibits only a sporadic pulse. That leaves a property that can be fun taken strictly on
Along with the trailer, Lionsgate has also debuted the first poster for The Shack, which features stars Sam Worthington and Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer. When Octavia Spencer first joined this adaptation of William P. Young's novel last March, it was revealed that she is actually playing God, and while her character's identity isn't exactly revealed in the trailer, it's quite clear that there is something very special about her character,

In a world replete with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue and rivalry, Marco Polo is based on the famed explorer’s adventures in Kublai Khan’s court in 13th Century China, and the dark and tempestuous battle for the expanding Mongol empire.
John Fusco, who wrote the Academy-Award nominated feature Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron is executive producer and showrunner along with Dan Minahan, whose previous work includes Homeland and Game of Thrones, with Patrick Macmanus, Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and Elizabeth Sarnoff as executive producers.
The 10 episode second season includes new and returning cast: Lorenzo Richelmy (Marco Polo), Michelle Yeoh (the Handmaiden), Benedict Wong (Kublai Khan), Joan Chen (Empress Chabi
It’s been 18 months since Marco Polo debuted its first season on Netflix, and even though it hit with a bit of a resounding dud, the show had its apologists, and I was one of them. A lot didn’t work (it’s hard to overstate that), including thin characterization, thinner world building and clunky, utterly un-bingeable plotting. But the show had style, with neat action set pieces and an unpretentious tackling of the medieval-sex-and-gore genre – which feels all but necessitated by every network thanks to Game of Thrones – resulting in a show that was palatable for me, despite being somewhat of an overall mess.
Cut to today, and it’s been a year-and-a-half since I was entrenched in all of the political turmoil between the the great Kublai Khan (Benedict Wong, still fascinating when the script lets him be) and his nemesis chancellor Jia Sidao,
