Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Calvary Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a small town priest in rural Ireland who receives an oddly unwelcome confession one morning from someone who calmly promises to murder him by the week’s end. The priest goes on with his business, trying his best to do right, but the next seven days are filled with frustration, eccentricity and an unsettling energy in those around him. Writer/director John Michael McDonagh‘s second feature is a slowburn character piece that weaves black comedy and mystery through a soulful rumination on the power of forgiveness. Gleeson is a quietly rumbling powerhouse and gives an immensely affecting lead performance, and the supporting cast is a stellar mix of aggressively engaging friends, strangers and suspects including Chris O’Dowd, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, M.

Production is already under way in California on Season 2 of HBO's True Detective, but it's never too late to add a new cast member, with Dexter alum C.S. Lee signing on for a recurring role. The actor will portray Richard Geldof, a district attorney who has much larger political ambitions. Geldof is described as, "smooth and polished, well-spoken and intelligent, with an unmoored moral compass." It isn't known how many episodes the actor will appear in.
The eight-episode Season 2 centers on three police officers and a career criminal, who must work together to unravel a massive conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams are playing the three police officers, Ray Velcoro, Paul Woodrugh and Ani Bezzerides, with Vince Vaughn portraying the criminal, Frank Semyon, whose move to a legitimate business is jeopardized by the murder of his business partner. The supporting cast includes Kelly Reilly, »
Cary Fukunaga's It will begin shooting next year.
"The idea is to start official prep in March for a summer shoot," producer Dan Lin told Vulture.
"Cary likes to develop things for a while, and we've been with this for about three or four years, so we're super excited that he stayed with it. You guys are gonna be really excited."
The 1986 novel was famously adapted into a two-part television film in 1990.
It centres around a group of children who must face off against a force that takes on its victims' greatest fears, personified by Pennywise the Clown.
Years later, they are forced to confront the evil again.
The new It adaptation will also be split into two parts. Fukunaga is currently only attached to direct the first.
"The most important thing is that »
Lee will recur as Richard Geldof, a state attorney general with grand political ambitions. Unlike his often inappropriate "Dexter" character, this one is smooth, well-spoken, polished and utterly lacking in morals.
The eight-episode season is currently in production in California and follows three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
