Syfy's 12 Monkeys Adds Rookie Blue Vet, Originals Alum and Two Others

6 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s bananas how much new casting there is to report for 12 Monkeys.

Video Syfy’s 12 Monkeys Trailer

TVLine has learned exclusively that a quartet of actors have landed recurring roles on the Syfy drama, which is inspired by the 1995 feature film and stars Aaron Stanford (Nikita) and Amanda Schull (Suits) as a man sent from the future to stop a plague and the current-day scientist who helps him in that endeavor.

First up, Lyriq Bent (top photo, left; Rookie Blue, Saw IV) has been cast as Dr. Henri, a brilliant and cutting edge virologist, while Todd Stashwick (The Originals, »

The Flash

Kelly Frye has signed on to play DC Comics character Plastique in the upcoming "The Flash" TV series on The CW. In the series she'll play a more heroic incarnation of the character, at least initially. Plastique (aka Sgt. Bette Sans Souci) was a bomb disposal expert in Iraq.

Following the accident that gave Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) his super speed powers, Bette finds herself with the ability to turn everything she touches into a bomb. She seeks Barry's help as nefarious U.S. government forces chase her down. [Source: E! Online]

War And Peace

Lily James ("Downton Abbey") is reportedly in talks to appear in the BBC's upcoming ambitious mini-series adaptation of Tolstoy's classic novel "War And Peace".

James would play heroine Natasha Rostova, lover to Pierre Bezukhov (Paul Dano) an illegitimate son who rises in society. Andrew Davies ("Little Dorrit," "Pride and Prejudice") is writing the series. [Source: Yahoo ]

Syfy’s 12 Monkeys TV show reveals core cast

29 July 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Emily Hampshire and Tom Noonan will star in the TV adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys…

With Fargo proving that it’s possible to make great television out of excellent films (as we discussed previously), there are now plenty of other big-to-small-screen transitions on the way.

Of particular interest to the geeky-minded will be Syfy’s 13-episode televisual version of Terry Gilliam’s mercilessly mind-bending surreal sci-fi flick 12 Monkeys, which has now found itself a cast.

Cole, Bruce Willis’ time-travelling mental patient in the film, will be played on telly by Aaron Stanford, perhaps best recognised as Pyro from X-Men 2 and X-Men: The Last Stand, although he's also held roles in the 2006 version of The Hills Have Eyes and TV's Nikita.

Villain-duties will be handled by one of our very favourite actors, the hugely experienced Tom Noonan, who you might recognise from Heat, Last Action Hero or RoboCop 2, amongst others. »

Emily Hampshire Takes on Brad Pitt's Role in Syfy's 12 Monkeys

29 July 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Well this is interesting.  Syfy has said repeatedly that they didn't want a simple re-tread of the classic Terry Gilliam film in their 12 Monkeys TV series, and even though their first trailer looks exactly like it, they're at least changing up our perceptions of the characters.  It's been announced that Emily Hampshire (a female if that was unclear) has snagged the role originally played by Brad Pitt (not a female).  

I'm never opposed to seeing some creative casting choices for roles, even for well known properties.  I've always been a big proponent of giving the best actor for the job the role (regardless of appearances).  So hopefully, that's what Syfy is doing here by casting Emily Hampshire in the role Brad Pitt occupied in the film, and not some PR stunt to gather attention:

Emily Hampshire (Cosmpolis, All The Wrong Reasons) has been cast in a major role in the Syfy series 12 Monkeys. »

The Returned Review

17 February 2014 2:05 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As horror fans, we’re used to zombie outbreaks running wildly out of control, causing mass chaos and mounting odds. These types of movies love to showcase rotting flesh, gooey kills, and as many walkers as possible – unless you’re The Returned. Director Manuel Carballo and writer Hatem Khraiche fast forward through all the death and destruction, presenting a glimpse into a zombie movie phase most filmmakers refuse to explore – recovery. So many zombie stories focus on nothing but action, as survivors fight through the apocalypse, but what about after the government takes control again and is able to produce some type of vaccine to help newly turned “almost” zombies? What if people were transformed into zombie time-bombs waiting to turn just by missing one single dose? Welcome to the future.

In a world where a zombie epidemic has come and gone, those malicious brain-eaters we’ve come to know »

‘The Returned’ Review: When Is a Zombie Apocalypse Movie Not a Zombie Apocalypse Movie?

17 February 2014 8:30 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Zombies have been the bread ‘n’ butter monster for direct to DVD horror movies for the past several years in part because they’re cheap to “create” and there’s a generally accepted fear of being swarmed by a mob intent on eating your insides. A potentially greater fear is often left unexplored though in the more emotionally-based terror of losing a loved one to the chaos only to see them return to nibble on your fleshy bits. The Returned takes this idea, blows it up a bit, and then does something fairly surprising. It decides not to be a zombie horror movie at all. The viral outbreak that led to a zombie apocalypse has come and gone, and society is trying to move forward. A cure of sorts was discovered that brings the recently infected back to normal, but the injections are needed on a daily basis. If one shot is missed, the »

Manuel Carballo’s new zombie movie, The Returned, was released to theaters and VOD yesterday. We’ve previously shown you the poster, photos, and videos, and we’re now giving Daily Dead readers an exclusive look at the brand new trailer:

“Directed by Manuel Carballo, The Returned is set in a post-zombie world where a treatment called the “Return Protein” can stop the spread of the virus if injected quickly after infection, but cannot cure it. With daily injections, the “Returned” are able to live relatively normal lives, but with brutal attacks at the hands of Anti-Return groups and rumors that protein stock is running low, the world is again on the brink of chaos. In the midst of this turmoil are Alex (Kris Holden-Ried) and Kate (Emily Hampshire), a young, successful and enviable couple that are hiding a long held secret – Alex is Returned.

The Returned – The Review

13 February 2014 9:56 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Let’s step back in time for a moment… back to a time when a strange and deadly new virus emerged in our world. This virus would often go undetected at first, sometimes for years, and then strikes its victims with a devastating ferocity. This virus requires its victims to take daily regiments of very expensive retro-viral drugs and there is still no cure for this unfortunate condition.

Let’s now return to the present day. This virus still exists in the real world, but is manageable. What would happen if we suddenly exhausted the world’s supply of this life-saving drug?

The Returned, written by Hatem Khraiche, could very well be an allegory for this frightening hypothetical scenario. In the film, directed by Manuel Carballo, the virus is one that invokes all the typical symptoms of zombism. Yes. I know that’s not a real word… yet. Much like our real world virus, »

Poster and Clip for Post-Zombie Thriller The Returned

12 February 2014 8:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With zombie outbreaks and zombie apocalypses having been heavily tread and retread on the big and small screens, it seems there’s now a scramble to tell stories in a post-zombie world. ComingSoon has debuted a poster and clip for the Manuel Carballo-directed thriller The Returned. Akin to the BBC series In The Flesh, The Returned takes place in a world where the infected can be rehabilitated and reintegrated into society.

Here are more details on the story from ComingSoon:

The Returned is set in a post-zombie world where a treatment called the "Return Protein" can stop the spread of the virus if injected quickly after infection, but cannot cure it. With daily injections, the "Returned" are able to live relatively normal lives, but with brutal attacks at the hands of Anti-Return groups and rumors that protein stock is running low, the world is again on the brink of chaos. »

The Returned Is a Zombie Movie with Brains

11 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Welcome to the post-post-apocalypse, where the zombie virus has metastasized from horror-movie gross-out to full-blown sci-fi metaphor.

In Manuel Carballo's assured feature, two major zombie outbreaks have been contained, and the virus has been halted in bitten survivors — the Returned of the title — who must give themselves daily injections of the "return protein" to continue living normal lives.

Kris Holden-Ried and Emily Hampshire play Alex and Kate, a couple who's hiding the fact that Alex has been controlling his infection for years. In the face of anti-Returned prejudice and a growing panic about dwindling medication, the pressure builds on the couple to get black-market meds to ensure Alex's survival while defending themselves from violent bigots. </ »

Fearnet Movie Review: 'The Returned'

3 February 2014 4:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

It's certainly no big secret that you can stuff all sorts of interesting social commentary into a zombie story. From George Romero's 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead to the current TV series The Walking Dead, writers have been finding new and frequently clever ways to use the "zombie apocalypse" as a simple-yet-powerful analogy about the flaws, foibles, and shortcomings of normal humanity. 

  Borrowing a thematic page from films like Children of Men and Blindness (both superior films, but the comparison seems apt), The Returned focuses on the early stages of a "fantastic" yet disturbingly realistic apocalypse -- and it focuses a lot more on the personal stakes of a crumbling world than it does in slam-bang zombie-stompin' horror mayhem. The Returned, for lack of a better phrase, is a "horror drama," and if that sounds like a warning, well, it's not. This is a smart, intense, and frequently tragic horror story. »
