William Friedkin developing Killer Joe TV series

According to IndieWire, director William Friedkin is in development on a TV series based upon his 2011 black comedy crime film Killer Joe.

The site reports that Friedkin revealed at the Lumiere Festival in France that he is teaming with producer Bobby Maresco (Million Dollar Baby) for a new take on the story, which will shift the story from Texan trailer parks to upper class Houston.

“It’s set among the millionaires and billionaires, who have their wives or business competitors killed,” said Friedkin. “Joe is a hired killer who frames bad guys for the murders who can’t get arrested for something else, or he makes them look like suicides…He becomes a kind of avenging angel in the series because he doesn’t just kill anybody for hire. He has to feel that guy in some way deserves to go.”

10 Great Buddy Cop Movies Not Written or Directed By Shane Black

To coincide with the release of The Nice Guys, Kieran Fisher recommends 10 other buddy cop movies worth checking out…

This weekend marks the release of Shane Black’s new film The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a law enforcement duo investigating a missing persons case. It also sees Black return to his roots, having rose to prominence in 1987 with his buddy cop action comedy Lethal Weapon. That film would serve as a progenitor for other films centred around the friendships of law men, which included The Last Boy Scout and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. When it comes to films of this ilk, Black is the undisputed king, but he’s not the only one responsible for giving us some gems throughout the years. This list recommends some of that are well worth your time.

Burn Notice 4.09 "Center Of The Storm" Review

Can hurricane damage keep Michael from a job this week or will old “friends” be able to slow down progress?

To begin, it was nice to see some old faces re-appear this week. We were first greeted with a visit by Vaughn. I have to say that he is played greatly by Robert Wisdom. His chilling exit from Michael’s apartment shows why Vaughn is someone who should never be messed week. The second re-appearance was actually by two men. For those who have followed the show since the beginning, you should remember the two FBI agents tailing Michael for the first season. Well, Lane (Brandon Morris) and Harris (Marc Macaulay) are back and this time they need help from Michael. It’s funny to see the tables turned on the men who made Michael’s life hell.

The help the FBI need are actually what pushes the story along this week.
