‘Horror’ renewed, ’666′ & ‘Resort’ gone; casting on Starz’s ‘Black Sails’; new ‘Popeye’ & ‘Transylvania 2′; more ‘Pinocchio’

19 November 2012 1:03 PM, PST | doorQ.com | See recent doorQ.com news »

FX’s anthology series American Horror Story has been renewed for a third season of bat-shit cray-cray. Actress Jessica Lange, who has found a whole new generation of fans thanks to her Emmy and Golden Globe winning role on the series, will return as well.

Two video games are heading to the big screen, as CBS Films will bring Deus Ex: Human Revolution, while Warner Bros. is looking to sign Tom Hardy to star in their version of Splinter Cell, which was created with the help of Tom Clancy and has spawned several successful tie-in novels.

 

ABC has decided not to order the back nine for either 666 Park Avenue or Last Resort. However, both shows will remain on the air through the 13 episodes that the network ordered. So, both shows will remain in production, perhaps giving the creators a chance to finish off their tales. Both should eventually land on »

Starz Casts Black Sails Pirates

16 November 2012 2:23 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Who doesn’t like a good pirate adventure? Starz is a fan. The network has ordered episodes of Black Sails, to be delivered by Jon Steinberg and Michael Bay. Today we learned two new actors have been cast. They are Zach McGowan and Luke Arnold.

Black Sails bypassed those uncertain waters where a series is just a pilot and no one knows if it will be picked up or not. Starz immediately asked for eight episodes.

The show is set 20 years before the events depicted in Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, Treasure Island, explained Deadline. The show’s lead character is Flint, a savvy pirate. He and his new shipmate John Silver are trying to survive adventures on New Providence Island. And here’s fair warning. It may look like a paradise, but the isle hides other pirates, whores, thieves and more.

British actor Toby Stephens is Captain Flint. »

One Man, Two Guvnors to tour Australia

10 September 2012 6:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The hit National Theatre production is to visit major festivals in Asia and New Zealand, before taking up residency as part of Cate Blanchett's final season as co-artistic director of Sydney Theatre Company

The National Theatre's smash hit One Man, Two Guvnors will swap Brighton pier for Bondi beach when it embarks on a tour of Australia and east Asia next year.

Having just finished a successful five months on Broadway, Nicholas Hytner's production will visit major festivals in Hong Kong, Adelaide and Auckland from February, before playing six-week runs in each of Australia's two cultural capitals, Sydney and Melbourne. The transfer might require playwright Richard Bean to tinker with the script a second time, to smooth some of the particularly British terminology for a new audience.

With James Corden due to film his latest self-penned BBC sitcom, The Wrong Man, in early 2013, the cast will be led by Owain Arthur. »
