25 August 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

A number of movies are being brought to the television in various forms (including Narc and The Truman Show), and Fargo is a recent example that these small screen adaptations do work.

It has been revealed today that the next to get the TV treatment is Shutter Island, the 2010 movie which was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred  Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer, and Mark Ruffalo.

HBO (the Us cable network behind show like Game of Thrones and True Detective) have picked up the series which is set to be called Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place.

Ashecliffe takes place before Shutter Island, and that’s all we know about the series as of right now!

However, it has been revealed that Dennis Lehane (the writer of the novel that Shutter Island was based on) will pen the pilot episode, while Martin Scorsese will direct, »

25 August 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Martin Scorsese is teaming up with author Dennis Lehane once again for an HBO TV series based on their 2010 thriller Shutter Island.

Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novel Shutter Island is based on, will write the pilot script, with Martin Scorsese set to direct the first episode. The series is tentatively titled Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the book and film are set, with the story to take place before the events of the movie. The show will focus on the hospital's past, and the sinister secrets of the facility's founders in the early 20th Century, who developed methods of treatment for the mentally ill.

The series was initially thought up by Paramount TV executive Amy Powell. She brought the idea to Martin Scorsese and Dennis Lehane, who loved the idea of expanding the story of his novel. Tom Bernardo is working as a co-writer with Dennis Lehane on the pilot. »

First teaser trailer for The Newsroom: The Final Episodes

25 August 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In 2012 HBO premiered a new television show following the day to day running of a typical Us news channel and it’s employees. Featuring an all star cast including Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn, it challenged the views on how the news is and should be covered in this day and age, spearheading the importance of ethical coverage rather than celebrating the incipient obsession with ratings. Written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and typical of his style, it often highlighted everything that was good and bad with today’s society. Like most shows that tackle topical subjects it came under a fair amount of criticism.

Earlier this year HBO revealed that the upcoming third season of The Newsroom would be its last and now they have released the first teaser trailer. Instead of featuring any actual footage from the final episodes, the teaser »

Universal / Legendary Set Dates for Krampus and Spectral

19 August 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Get out your calendars, folks, as Universal/Legendary have just set release dates for two of their upcoming terror tales. Look for the yuletide anthology Krampus on Wednesday, November 25, 2015, and Spectral on August 12, 2016.

Michael Dougherty will be directing Krampus, based on an ancient legend about a pagan demon who punishes the wicked. The film is said to be similar in style to Dougherty’s cult hit Trick 'r Treat.

“The dark ancient origins of our holidays have always fascinated me,” Dougherty said. “I’ve been drawing twisted Christmas cards for well over a decade so it only made sense to bring some of that morbid yuletide fun to the big screen, and Krampus was the perfect mythology to do that. Christmas has been invading Halloween for far too long. It’s time to return the favor.”

Spectral, directed by Nic Matthieu, stars Emily Mortimer, James Badge Dale, Max Martini, and Cory Hardrict. »

Those who are naughty are going to get something a lot worse than coal in Michael Dougherty’s Krampus, while a Special Ops team engages supernatural forces in Spectral.

This is the second Krampus-based Christmas horror movie to begin development as of late, »

It’s A Wrap! ‘The Newsroom’ Third & Final Season Finishes Filming

19 July 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve found that HBO’s The Newsroom has been a show the critics have wanted to berate but instead have found themselves taken in by the brilliance of the characters. Aaron Sorkin’s tremendous fictional ‘Television Newsroom’ spectacle has portrayed the day-to-day news in the way that most people would want to see it done and now returns this Fall for its final season.

There’s insurmountable coverage these days by supposed news journalism that usually ends up being nothing more than extended gossip, alongside unconsidered guess work. If you care about the world we live in, and keep up-to-date with your current affairs then The Newsroom brought back those hopes that such organisations once led with honesty and then -somehow – it might come back one day in Western society.

Of course, Sorkin had the advantage of reinventing old news coverage – by the series being set in the past »
