Freddie Highmore Discusses Spider-Man Speculation

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Speculation continues to swirl around the role of Spider-Man, now that the character is confirmed as being scheduled to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No actor has yet been cast in the role, but there are certainly already a few fan favorites emerging. One of which is Freddie Highmore.

While promoting season three of Bates Motel, the actor spoke to IGN about fans touting his name as the next potential web-slinger.

“Obviously, I would love to be considered. That would be fantastic. I guess we’ll just have to see how things go.

“You always feel like you can identify with him. He’s that kind of guy at school who wasn’t perhaps in the really cool group, but who was extremely intelligent and managed to find confidence in being Spider-Man – in this other side to his life.”

Addressing the possibility of participating in such a weighty film franchise, »

Watch: 'Bates Motel' Gets Psycho in Season 3 Teasers

2 March 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"I think there's something wrong with me," announces Norman Bates as he pulls one of his mother's floral dresses in close for a blissful hug. If there's any indication "Bates Motel" will be fully embracing its "Psycho" roots in its much anticipated third season, it's definitely this haunting image at the end of the newly released teaser below. A&E has dropped two clips foreshadowing the dark psychodrama to come in the upcoming season of their hit drama, which premieres just one week from tonight at 9:00pm Et/Pt. Creators Carlton Cuse, Kerry Ehrin and Anthony Cipriano have done a tremendous job establishing the roots of Norman's fractured psyche in previous seasons, but it seems Season 3 will finally make the jump and give audiences the Hitchcockian Bates they've been waiting for. "Bates Motel" stars Emmy nominee Vera Farmiga opposite Freddie Highmore, Olivia Cook, Max Thieriot and Kenny Johnson.  Watch the new teases below: Read. »

Freddie Highmore Goes Mad in Bates Motel Trailer

18 February 2015 7:09 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

A&E is taking their game up a notch with the upcoming third season of Bates Motel. They just released a short trailer for the third season and it looks like Norman and Norma may go a little more steamy. The less than 2 minute trailer implies that the creepy relationship becomes more odd between these 2 while others become concerned. Freddie Highmore’s Norman of course only goes deeper into this craziness. The new season starts on March 9th. You can view their trailer down below.

It is shocking to see that A&E can get by with this, even though MTV also had a show with a similar issue. It will be interesting to how far they will take it and how this will affect their ratings. It is a big risk by the network as the show has done well with a more tamed story. It is not like »

A&E Resuscitates Unforgettable For Fourth Season

6 February 2015 8:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Perhaps it should be retitled Unkillable.

After being canceled by CBS, brought back and then canceled again by the same network, Poppy Montgomery-led detective drama Unforgettable is getting a new lease on life courtesy of A&E, which has picked it up for a fourth season.

The series, in which Montgomery plays a detective who remembers everything apart from the day her sister was murdered, first got the ax after one middling season on CBS, but the network decided to bring it back for a second season over the summer, where it thrived for its next two seasons. As part of its move toward louder, more expensive programming like Under the Dome and James Patterson’s Zoo, however, CBS killed the series yet again last October.

A&E will air it as part of its expanding dramatic block, which includes acclaimed Freddie Highmore-Vera Farmiga two-hander Bates Motel »

Live-action ‘Astro Boy’ coming from ‘Lego Movie’ animation team

6 February 2015 11:01 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Astro Boy is becoming a real boy very soon.

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Wednesday that the Japanese manga character will be getting the live action treatment from Australia’s Animal Logic Entertainment and Japan’s Tezuka Productions. Animal Logic has most recently worked with animation on Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Lego Movie.

Astro (Boy) is a robot boy created by a scientist as a replacement for the man’s dead son. After going on a Pinocchio-style adventure, he ends up with a new owner and a new mission: to fight evil (in human or robot form) using his many superpowers.

While the cartoons targeted a young demo, The Hollywood Reporter adds that Animal Logic is aiming to make a four-quadrant adventure movie tailor-made for the comic book movie age. No director is attached, but the producers are about to begin a search for writers.

Astro Boy is heading to the big screen for live-action movie

6 February 2015 4:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The iconic Japanese character Astro Boy is heading to the big screen, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Animal Logic Entertainment and Tezuka Productions are developing a live-action feature based upon the robot boy who uses his powers to fight evil.

Created as a manga in the 1950s by Osamu Tezuka, Astro Boy has been adapted into several anime series, and also made the jump to the big screen with an animated movie in 2009, which featured Freddie Highmore as the voice of the title character.

“We’ve seen him as a manga, an anime and an animated movie but we’ve never seen him as a live-action movie or him as a superhero,” said producer Zareh Nalbandian. “We actually see him in the same league as an Iron Man.”

At present, no director is attached to the project, but the search is on for a screenwriter.

Live-Action Astro Boy Adaptation Takes Off

5 February 2015 4:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Astro Boy may be heading back to the big screen, thanks to Australia’s Animal Logic Entertainment and Japan’s Tezuka Productions, which are plotting a live-action feature adaptation of the iconic manga.

No director is attached to the project, but the producing team, including producer Zareh Nalbandian (of Animal Logic) and exec-producers Jason Lust (of Animal Logic), Mike Callaghan and Reuben Liber (both of Ranger 7 Films), is about to head up a search for writers.

Animal Logic is acclaimed for its special effects work on projects as massive as Happy Feet and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the studio is also taking a stab at developing its own projects, many of which include a hybrid of animation and live-action. A Betty Boop movie is one such project in the works.

Astro Boy was massively popular in Japan as a 1950s manga created by Osama Tezuka, and multiple anime »
