Warner Bros. and NBC Bringing 'The Devil's Advocate' to Television

18 August 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Clearly the new trend is to not only bring one-popular television shows to the big screen, but now to bring movies to the small screen. We've seen some success with "Fargo" and "Hannibal" or, if not success, certainly some rabid fanbases. Right now HBO is developing a series adaptation of Westworld with a massive ensemble cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Miranda Otto, Thandie Newton, Shannon Woodward, James Marsden and Kyle Bornheimer, NBC is setting their sites on The Devil's Advocate, the 1997 feature from director Taylor Hackford that starred Al Pacino, Keanu Reeves and Charlize Threron. amz asin="B00860YHRS" size="small"Deadline reports producers John Wells and Arnold Kopelson are bringing the show to NBC with a teleplay written by Matt Venne ("Bag of Bones", "The Exorcism of Molly Harley"), bringing back to life the movie that centered on a public »

Rogue Star Thandie Newton Heads to Westworld

18 August 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

The delightful Thandie Newton ('Crash') is the latest addition to the outstanding cast of HBO's new adaptation of Michael Crichton's 'Westworld'. Newton, who currently stars in DirecTV's detective series 'Rogue', is set to play Maeve Millay, a 'beautiful and razor-sharp woman with a genius for reading people and a knack for survival. Maeve is the Westworld madame whose seen-it-all-before worldview is about to be truly challenged.' Interestingly enough 'Rogue' was renewed very recently so should we assume that Newton's part in 'Westworld' won't be a major role but possibly just a brief episode arc? Either that or the gorgeous 41-year old star (below) is upping her workload...You go girl! Newton joins Anthony Hopkins ('Silence of the Lambs'), Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden ('X-Men: Days of Future Past'), Jeffrey Wright ('Source Code')and more. »

Ten Best: Extreme Weather Films

14 August 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

To celebrate the release of Into the Storm, hitting UK cinemas on the 20th August, we have put together our favourite extreme weather films.

The Perfect Storm

This film reminds us that all extreme weather is 100 times worse when experienced at sea. The Perfect Storm is about the crew of the Andrea Gail, a small sword boat that fishes for swordfish.  The crew decide to ignore weather warnings and risk one last fishing expedition, after a poor season of catch. Little do the crew know, they are heading into the perfect storm, one they are unlikely to survive. Watching this film will show you how far visual effects have come since it was released in 2000. However, as it stars George Clooney, we can forget the visual effects in favour of watching his face.
