Timecop Reboot Still In The Works

Universal Pictures is reportedly developing a remake of Jean-Claude Van Damme‘s 1994 film, Timecop and it doesn’t sound like Jcvd would be involved with it in any way. Universal is planning on doing a complete re-imagining of the 1994 time travel classic based on the series from Dark Horse Comics. The 1994 sci-fi film was directed by Peter Hyams starring Van Damme as a police officer who regulated time travel in the future and became his most commercially-successful star vehicle. The film was adapted into a TV series of the same title, in 1997 with T.W. King and Cristi Conaway as its stars. A direct-to-dvd...

'One Life to Live' may share actors with 'General Hospital'
Three former Llanview citizens may not be looking to leave Port Charles anytime soon.

Apparently, it’s time for Michael Easton (John McBain), Kristen Alderson (Starr Manning) and Roger Howarth (Todd Manning) to return to the set of One Life to Live now that Prospect Park has finally closed the necessary deals to make the online version a reality. But General Hospital, which absorbed the trio while Prospect Park was scrambling to make The Online Network a reality, doesn’t seem to want to let them go.

ABC released this statement: “General Hospital is excited about Easton, Alderson and Howarth staying on the show,

TVLine Items: B&B's Ridge Recast Plan, Hilary Duff Plots TV Return, Lost Vet Gets Hot and More
Will The Bold and the Beautiful‘s Ridge Forrester be — gasp! — recast?

According to the CBS soap’s showrunner Bradley Bell, it’s a very real possibility.

Unlike a vast majority of shocking daytime TV exits, “Ridge will not be dead or presumed dead” following his Sept. 14 swan song, Bell tells TV Guide Magazine. Rather, “He will just not be in the picture” following his and Brooke’s honeymoon, which means that “at some point it will be necessary for Ridge to return to the show” — very likely in the form of a different actor.

'All My Children' and 'One Life To Live' online move officially canceled

Canceled soaps "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" have officially gotten the axe -- again.

Prospect Park, the company that promised to start an online network to re-launch the beloved soaps online, announced today that it has run into so many hurdles in trying to negotiate contracts for the soaps' new leases on life that it will be impossible to continue.

Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz of Prospect Park issued a joint statement with the news, saying, "After five months of negotiations with various guilds, hundreds of presentations to potential financial and technology partners, and a hope that we could pioneer a new network for the future, it is with great disappointment that we are suspending our aspirations to revive 'One Life to Live' and 'All My Children' via online distribution."

'One Life to Live' says goodbye to its ABC studio -- Exclusive Photos
A day filled with tears, laughter, and hugs erupted into applause when the last scene of One Life to Live finished taping in its ABC studio Friday. Today saw scenes moving along at the famously whiplash-like speed common for daytime soaps, but with increasing fanfare and emotion. Then the studio quietly began to fill up in the late afternoon as Erika Slezak (Viki Lord) and Jerry vern Dorn (Clint Buchanan, right) started to shoot that last scene (which is not the last one that will be seen on the show’s finale in January) in Viki’s Llanfair living room.

'All My Children' online plans delayed

Fans eagerly awaiting "All My Children's" return in January (albeit in online form) should probably stop holding their breath -- new reports say that the beloved-but-canceled soap will likely not return until much later in 2012.

According to Variety, Prospect Park, the company that plans to resurrect "AMC" and fellow canceled soap "One Life to Live," which ends its 43-year run in January, has hit a wall in negotiations to bring both shows online and plans will need to be pushed back by several months.

While many "Oltl" stars have signed on to continue the show online, including Erika Slezak, Michael Easton, Ted King, Kassie DePaiva and Sean Ringgold, "AMC" actors haven't been as receptive. Only Cameron Mathison and Lindsey Hartley are officially in, with Susan Lucci declining the offer outright.

Prospect Park plans to launch a destination called The Online Network (Toln), which will air both soaps along with complimentary entertainment and lifestyle programming,

Disappointing news for fans of All My Children, which was supposed to earn a second lease on life next year when it was supposed to resurface via The Online Network in January. The company that bought it from ABC may hold off premiering it for at least a few months and focus on getting One Life to Life back to fans, instead, according to Variety.
