If You Were Destroyed by The Mist, Do Not Watch the Trailer For the TV Version

9 May 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's a banner year for people who love getting the sh*t scared out of them by Stephen King adaptations. While you may be quivering just thinking of the upcoming It remake, I'm terrified by the fact that The Mist is getting rebooted as a TV show. The 2007 movie explored a microcosm of a world that is overrun with a mysterious mist, but the TV show is taking us out of the grocery store and into the street. Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Frances Conroy all star in the show, which is set to premiere on Spike on June 22. Check out the trailers!

New Trailer For The Mist TV Series Fully Embraces Its Horror Origin

8 May 2017 8:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s always seemed odd, the way that very few excellent adaptations of the literary work of Stephen King have been created. Despite the fact that the author is a prolific writer of some deeply profound, horrifying tales, capturing that essence onscreen has thus far been an astonishing rarity. One such example is his story, The Mist, which – despite being published a number of times – has only produced one extremely disappointing film adaptation in 2007. This could be about to change, however, with the imminent arrival of a television series from Spike that uses the basis of The Mist as a premise for an ongoing story – and its latest trailer certainly does not pull any punches.

The source material for The Mist is the horror novella of the same name that originally appeared in the 1980 Stephen King anthology, Dark Forces. It takes place in the small town of Bridgton, in Maine, »

First Look at Spike TV's The Mist Adaptation [Trailer]

13 April 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

One of the better adaptations of Stephen King's work from the last decade (celebrating 10 years!) is Frank Darabont's brilliant and terrifying The Mist. The adaptation of King's 200-page novella certainly took things to a dark place and now Danish show-runner Christian Torpe is traveling down a similar path with his take on the material.

"The Mist" TV series expands on the grocery store of the original story and features a massive cast including Alyssa Sutherland ("Vikings"), Isiah Whitlock Jr. and an appearance by the great Frances Conroy. The survivors are spread out over a couple of locations, a shopping mall and a church, when the mist rolls into town. The show will expand on King's and Darabont's themes of religion, power and societal breakdown.

Stephen King’s ‘The Mist’ Returns In First Trailer For Spike TV Series

12 April 2017 5:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Depending on who you ask, Frank Darabont‘s “The Mist” is either a stone-cold classic Stephen King adaptation, or it left room for improvement. Well, if you’re in the latter camp, the new TV series based on the author’s story not only takes a new crack at bringing it to life, but it expands the tale and brings it to some intriguing new places.

Starring Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Whitlock Jr.

The Mist TV Series Showrunner Talks Adapting the Novella & Stephen King’s Reaction to the Pilot Episode

24 March 2017 2:08 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The news front on Spike TV's adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist has been relatively quiet in recent months, but that's now changed thanks to a new interview Lilja's Library conducted with Christian Torpe, the creator, executive producer, and showrunner of The Mist TV series, who discussed adapting King's novella, his respect for Frank Darabont's 2007 film, King's reaction to the pilot episode, and more.

Speaking with Lilja's Library, Torpe expressed his desire to do something different with his take on King's seminal novella, including not retreading Darabont's adaptation, which he greatly admires:

"It is not the same story as in the book and the movie, nor is it the same characters – but fans of the story will still see clear parallels... Some things are exactly the same, some are totally different. Some things you think are the same as in the original, but turn out to be something else entirely. »

Movie Review – Chips (2017)

24 March 2017 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chips, 2017.

Written and Directed by Dax Shepard.

Starring Dax Shepard, Michael Pena, Jessica McNamee, Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen, Vincent D’Onofrio, Adam Brody, Maya Rudolph, Ben Falcone, Justin Chatwin, Rosa Salazar, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Jane Kaczmarek.

Synopsis:

A rookie officer is teamed with a hardened pro at the California Highway Patrol, though the newbie soon learns his partner is really an undercover Fed investigating a heist that may involve some crooked cops.

Chips opens with a message explaining to viewers that the actual California Highway Patrol is not associated with this reboot of the semi-popular television series (it ran throughout the 70s and 80s), and to be honest, why would they want to? This comedy is straight-up lowest common denominator trash that is agonizing torture to sit through for 100 minutes. Dax Shepard is responsible for producing, writing, directing, and starring (as Jon Baker) in this new take on the property, »

Tom Waits, Elisabeth Moss & More Join David Lowery’s ‘The Old Man and the Gun’

23 March 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Could David Lowery have two of the year’s finest films? After coming to Sundance Film Festival with the best feature of the fest, A Ghost Story (our review), he’s starting production on his follow-up, The Old Man and the Gun, early next month, which could give him more than enough time to sneak it out by year’s end. Ahead of the shoot, he’s also already secured distribution and has now expanded his cast. Led by Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, and Sissy Spacek, check out a new synopsis below.

Forrest Tucker (Redford) has been on the wrong side of the law since he was a teen. He grew into a career bank robber who broke out of prison 18 times, including a daring escape from San Quentin at age 70. The film covers his twilight years, and an unprecedented string of daring heists that confound authorities and enchants the public. »

My Favorite Scene: Past and Current Producers Look Back on ‘Law & Order: Svu’

8 February 2017 9:18 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell Et all about getting to see their most cherished moment on their series make it from script to screen.

On Wednesday, Feb. 8, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit will reach a major TV milestone when it airs its 400th episode, a feat only previously achieved by eight scripted series over the past four decades. While a lot of credit for the show’s success and stamina is given to the cast led by Mariska Hargitay, who has won an Emmy for playing Det.

Sundance Review: ‘Person to Person’ Gets Lost In New York

31 January 2017 7:21 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There are plenty of characters and there is plenty of New York City in writer/director Dustin Guy Defa‘s Person To Person, but the whole thing meanders all over without ever really settling somewhere that matters. Amongst the pack, we’ve got rag newspaper reporter Phil (Michael Cera) and temp Claire (Abbi Jacobson) awkwardly getting to know each other while they follow up on a potential murder case, involving a rich widow (a criminally-wasted Michaela Watkins).

Meanwhile, a couple of old-timers (including Isiah Whitlock Jr.) hang out at a timepiece repair shop owned by Jimmy (Philip Baker Hall, understated and wonderful); a man named Bene (Bene Coopersmith) hunts down a rare Charlie Parker album while worrying about his new shirt while his best friend Ray (George Sample III) hides out at his apartment after posting nude photos online of his ex-girlfriend (Marsha Stephanie Blake); a quartet of teenagers (Tavi Gevinson, »

Abbi Jacobson on How ‘Broad City’ Changed After Trump’s Election, Her New Sundance Comedy

19 January 2017 3:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Broad City” co-creator Abbi Jacobson is making her first trek to Sundance this year for the premiere of “Person to Person.” It’s a different kind of project for Jacobson — a comedy that’s more interested in human behavior than hilarious gags. But just as “Broad City” focuses on 20-somethings trying to make it in the big city, Jacobson’s character in “Person to Person” is also grappling with finding her place in the real world. In the new film she plays a cub reporter who faces an ethical dilemma while reporting on a murder case for a tabloid newspaper. Michael Cera, Philip Baker Hall, Tavi Gevinson, and Isiah Whitlock, with Dustin Guy Defa directing.

On the eve of the film’s Sundance launch on Friday, Jacobson spoke with Variety about jobs she hated, how “Broad City” is changing after Donald Trump’s presidential election, and what’s next for the Comedy Central show.
