Recapping... the thriller was previously titled Wards Island, when we first alerted you to it last October. It's apparently now called Battledogs. I think I like the old title more. The film, which stars Dennis Haysbert, Ariana Richards, Ernie Hudson, Craig Scheffer, and Bill Duke, centers on a viral outbreak in New York City that turns the infected into werewolves. Alexander Yellen is its director - a cinematography primarily, making his directorial debut. The film was shot in Buffalo, which stood in for New York City, where the real Ward Island is located.

Actor Dennis Haysbert shared the below teaser trailer for an upcoming feature documentary from filmmaker Travolta Cooper, titled The Black Moses - no, not a film about Isaac Hayes, nor Harriet Tubman, nor Marcus Garvey, but on the life and times of L.O. Pindling (Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling), the first black Prime Minister of the Bahamas. Pindling is regarded as the "Father" of the Bahamas, having led it to independence in 1973. He served as Prime Minister of the Bahamas from 1969 to 1992, and was leader of the Progressive Liberal Party (Plp) from 1965 to 1997 when he resigned from public life. He died in 2000. Travolta says that he's in the final stages of post-production »

As the upfronts approach, it’s hard to scope out pilot pickup buzz at the major broadcast nets this year because there are few clear heat-seekers.
The big bets of this year’s development crop were made early on in the cycle (last summer and fall) and for the most part have retained their front-runner status: ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” with the Whedon clan; CBS’ redo of “Beverly Hills Cop”; NBC’s 22-episode throwdown for the Michael J. Fox domestic laffer; Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher in Fox’s cop comedy “Brooklyn 99″; and the union of David E. Kelley and Robin Williams in CBS’ “Crazy Ones.”

"It’s one of those hot nights, dry and windless. The kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things.
"Dwight’s thinking of all the ways he’s screwed up and what he’d give for one clear chance to wipe the slate clean, to dig his way out of the numb gray hell that is his life.
"And he’d give anything. »

According to EW, Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute on NBC's "The Office" for nine seasons, will star in the drama pilot about a self-destructive cop who tries and fails to change his behavior. "Backstrom" hails from "Bones" veteran Hart Hanson and also stars Dennis Haysbert and Kristoffer Polaha.
"Backstorm" is based on a Swedish book series from Leif G.W. Persson. Persson will serve as executive producer on the series, along with his agent Niclas Salomonsson and Hanson..
Wilson was originally attached to star in a possible "Office" spinoff titled "The Farm," but NBC passed on the project and a portion of it aired as an episode of "The Office."
"We had worked really hard on it and I think created a really cool and different pilot," Wilson said in an interview with HuffPost TV. "But it was kind »

The actor has been cast as the title character on Backstrom, a CBS pilot that focuses on an overweight and offensive detective who is attempting to change his self-destructive behavior.
The news comes just a couple days after The Office filmed its final scene, and also the week after that NBC sitcom aired what was meant to be a backdoor pilot for a Dwight Schrute spinoff titled The Farm.
But it was not meant to be - and NBC's loss will now be CBS' gain. »

After seeing his Dwight Schrute spinoff get turned into a half-hour installment of The Office instead of being picked up, Rainn Wilson has landed on his feet. Industry insiders confirm to Vulture that Wilson is set to star in CBS's Backstrom, playing the "offensive, irascible Detective Everett Backstrom as he tries, and fails, to change his self-destructive behavior." Based on a series of Swedish novels by Leif G.W. Persson, the show will also feature 24's Dennis Haysbert. Bones creator Hart Hanson is on board as a writer and executive producer. »

Wilson will play the title role of Everett Backstrom, an overweight, offensive, irascible detective who tries, and fails, to change his self-destructive behavior. He'll lead a cast that also includes Dennis Haysbert ("24)," Kristoffer Polaha ("Life Unexpected") and Page Kennedy ("Weeds").
Wilson's post-"Office" future has been in flux after NBC decided not to pursue a spinoff featuring his character Dwight Schrute. The network made him an offer for the comedy pilot "Donor Party" with a six-episode guarantee, but Wilson turned it down. Maybe the move into drama was what he was waiting for all along. »
Having just wrapped his stint playing Dwight Schrute for nine seasons on NBC's "The Office," Rainn Wilson is trying his hand at a drama series for a change. Or at least, drama-ish. The actor has signed on for the CBS pilot "Backstrom," created by a man known for bringing a darkly comedic touch to heavy subject matter: "Bones" creator Hart Hanson. Wilson will star as title character Everett Backstrom, an "overweight, offensive, irascible" detective who constantly struggles with controlling his "self-destructive" tendencies. He joins the previously-cast Page Kennedy, Kristoffer Polaha and Dennis Haysbert in the pilot, which WIlson will also produce. »

After a lengthy search, The Office‘s Rainn Wilson has been tapped for the title role in the CBS/20th TV drama pilot Backstrom. Also cast in the project, based on the Swedish book series, is Page Kennedy. Written by Bones creator Hart Hanson, Backstrom centers on Everett Backstrom (Wilson), an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries, and fails, to change his self-destructive behavior. In addition to starring, Wilson will serve as a producer. He segues to Backstrom straight from The Office, which wrapped production on its ninth and final episode yesterday. Wilson, repped by Wme and 3 Arts, played one of the Emmy-winning comedy series’ signature characters, Dwight Schrute, since the pilot. He also co-created and toplined a potential Dwight-centered Office spinoff, The Farm. After it didn’t go forward, Wilson became a hot commodity for pilots, fielding multiple offers. He turned all down, including walking away from a »
