Casting Update for Netflix’s Reimagining of Lost In Space

15 December 2016 9:50 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The casting slots for Netflix's Lost in Space series continue to fill up, as another actress has joined the reimagining's ranks to play a member of the Robinson family.

Deadline reports that Mina Sundwall is set to co-star in the new Lost in Space as Penny, the middle child of the Robinson family. Penny was portrayed by Angela Cartwright in the original Lost in Space series that aired from 1965–1968 on CBS.

Sundwall joins a cast that includes Toby Stephens and Molly Parker as the Robinson parents, Parker Posey as the villainous Dr. Smith, and Ignacio Serricchio as Don West.

Sundwall has steadily put together an impressive list of film credits, appearing in Freeheld, Maggie's Plan, and Tara Subkoff's #Horror, in which she played the key role of Francesca (see below).

Season one of the new Lost in Space series will consist of ten episodes and is slated to premiere in 2018 on Netflix. »

‘Pandorica’ Review

8 December 2016 6:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Luke D’Silva, Jade Hobday, Marc Zammit, Adam Bond, Bentley Kalu, Amed Hashimi, Laura Marie Howard, Adam Ford, Macaulay Callard | Written and Directed by Tom Paton

I had no real expectations going into Pandorica and I came out of it very pleasantly surprised by Tom Paton’s genre busting futuristic dystopian, sci-fi horror, suspense, action-filled tale of what happens when humanity is devolved into its most basic instincts. Well I did say this film was genre busting! One of the best things about Pandorica is that you really can’t put it in any bracket (no matter how hard you try for the purpose a review).

Set somewhere in the future we meet a small group of Natives from the Varosha tribe. Tribe leader Nus (Luke D’Silva) has brought his three bravest and best to take part in a Violent trial to determine who should be leader of the Tribe when Nus expires. »

Netflix’s Lost In Space Series Adds Parker Posey as Dr. Smith

23 November 2016 9:22 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It looks like Parker Posey will climb aboard the Jupiter 2, as the actress has reportedly joined Netflix's Lost in Space remake series to play a key role familiar to fans of the original show.

Deadline reports that Posey (Scream 3, Blade: Trinity, Louie, Clockwatchers, Best in Show) will play Dr. Smith, a character who was the initial antagonist and (eventual) source of occasional comic relief portrayed by Jonathan Harris in the original series, which aired from 1965–1968 on CBS. Fans of the show will remember Dr. Smith as someone who set out to sabotage the Robinson family on their space voyage aboard the Jupiter 2 (originally referred to as the Gemini 12). No specific details about Posey's version of Dr. Smith have been revealed at this time.

Season one of the new Lost in Space series will consist of ten episodes and is slated to premiere in 2018 on Netflix. Neil Marshall (The Descent, »

Neil Marshall Discusses the ‘Doomsday’ Sequel We’ll Never See

14 November 2016 4:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Doomsday is the only movie director Neil Marshall has made with a sequel in mind. Unfortunately, we’re never going to see that sequel. We’ve known that since the film underperformed at the box office in 2008. The Descent and Game of Thrones director thankfully got to stuff a lot of ideas in the first Doomsday, a movie that proudly wears its influences on its sleeve, […]

The Troll Hunter remake is not moving forward

11 November 2016 6:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2013, it was announced that Chris Columbus’ 1942 Pictures production company had snapped up the remake rights to André Øvredal’s rather fantastic found footage monster movie Troll Hunter, tapping Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) to direct.

Since then, we’ve heard nothing about the planned remake, and it seems that it is no longer moving forward, with director Øvredal revealing to Birth.Movies.Death that Marshall’s busy schedule may have killed the project.

“I don’t know exactly [what happened],” said Øvredal. “I was very happy with what I read; I never communicated with anybody about it, but I read on-line that Neil Marshall was attached to direct it, and I was like, ‘Ok, I can get behind that,’ and then suddenly it didn’t happen. I believe that just after signing up for Troll Hunter, Neil got too busy with Game of Thrones, and that’s what stopped »

The ‘Troll Hunter’ remake is probably dead

10 November 2016 10:45 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The planned remake of the superb Norwegian found-footage fantasy film Troll Hunter looks like it may be dead in the water. The remake rights to the film, which we reviewed very positively upon its initial release over here, were held by Chris Columbus’ 1492 Pictures, but according to the original film’s director Andre Ovredal, it looks like those rights have reverted back to him.

Ovredal spoke with Birth.Movies.Death about the redo.

“I don’t know exactly [what happened]. I was very happy with what I read; I never communicated with anybody about it, but I read online that Neil Marshall was attached to direct it, and I was like, ‘Ok, I can get behind that,’ and then suddenly it didn’t happen. I believe that just after signing up for Troll Hunter, Neil got too busy with Game of Thrones, and that’s what stopped it; that seems to be the case, »

The 'Trollhunter' Remake Is Probably Never Happening

8 November 2016 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back in 2011 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone director Chris Columbus optioned the rights to the fantastic fantasy movie Trollhunter. Columbus wanted to produce an English language remake of the Norwegian movie about a guy whose secret government job sees him protecting his nation from trolls, big and small. At one point Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday) was even attached to direct it. Things were looking up. And then radio silence until today's news, which is a bummer for anyone looking forward to an English language version. It's not happening. Original Trollhunter director Andre Øvredal broke the news to Birth.Movies.Death.. Columbus' original option on the film ended, with the rights going back to the original filmmakers. And...

From 'Babadook' to 'Raw': The Rise of the Modern Female Horror Filmmaker

26 October 2016 12:42 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Female horror fans are hardly unicorns. Quite the opposite – we go to the movies to get scared, often in greater numbers than men. Female horror directors aren't mythical beings either, even though it can sometimes feel this way. But in fact, the last few years have seen an exciting wave of horror films helmed by women who haven't merely joined the rank-and-file as encouraging statistics. Instead, movies like Jennifer Kent's The Babadook or Karyn Kusama's The Invitation have helped elevate the genre by opening it up to stories that unsettle audiences in new, »

'Westworld' Recap: Player Haters

16 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Three episodes deep into Westworld, it's become clear that there’s a problem with the user interface. Theoretically, our deepest interest in this increasingly dark sci-fi parable should be with the characters best capable of sustaining it: the humans. After all, the guests and the staff of the theme park are the ones with actual, honest-to-god (or honest-to-Darwin) consciousness. They've lead real lives with real experiences, instead of having fake memories uploaded into their brains. Their emotions can't be switched off with a command. Their bodies can't heal from fatal »

A Wayward Host Sparks Panic In First Pics For Westworld Episode 3 “The Stray”

13 October 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Sweetwater, the dusty old town at the heart of HBO’s Westworld series, may be marketed as a self-contained haven where fantasies become reality. But there are times when things don’t go according to plan, often resulting in a dark series of events that stem from Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins).

This time, it involves a missing host, a story arc that will play out in full with the premiere of “The Stray,” the third installment of Westworld‘s inaugural season. Included in the gallery above are pics of Elsie and Stubbs plotting course for the outback, while Teddy and Marti (Bojana Novakovic) make tracks in a different direction, potentially putting Dolores in a spot of bother. There’s also a chilling photo of Robert Ford musing in his office – one decorated with a collection of lifeless, downright creepy artificial faces.

12 October 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"You can't play a god without being acquainted with a devil." The latest featurette and preview video for HBO's Westworld explore the show's intriguing take on artificial intelligence.

Created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, both of whom are executive producing and writing, with Nolan also directing, the series was inspired by the 1973 motion picture “Westworld,” written and directed by Michael Crichton.

Timeless Review – TV – NBC May Have Stumbled Into A Sci-Fi Winner

29 September 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Shows that involve time travel have a lot of hurdles that need to be factored in, and Timeless confronts the challenge by attempting to simply avoid the problems altogether. It’s actually a good way to go, and the way the show builds its premise works better than anyone probably dared to hope.

The best element the show puts in play is that no one who actually does the time travelling wanted to go. Well, that’s only true of our heroes, but that’s all that matters. Time travel is forced upon them, and that puts us in the position of unique, and easier to develop, motivations for our characters.
