‘HarmonQuest’ Season 2: Dan Harmon On Getting to Be a Narcissist While Spencer Crittenden Does All The Work

15 September 2017 2:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Spencer Crittenden went into “HarmonQuest” a game master and came out a showrunner. Long the trusted guide of the adventures of Fondue (Dan Harmon), Beor (Erin McGathy), and Bone Weevil (Jeff Davis) on the hybrid animated/live-action series and in other Harmon-led projects, Crittenden has taken a larger role than ever on “HarmonQuest” Season 2. That means not only continuing the ongoing deeds of Fondue and Co., but bringing in a new batch of week-to-week one-off characters to join the fray.

“A big part of role-playing games is that every group is different, every table is different, every player has different values and ideas of what the game is,” Crittenden recently told IndieWire. “They’re all kind of right and kind of wrong, but everyone is still having fun. I think they all highlight the correct way to play and show that you don’t necessarily have to be an expert. »

‘The Disaster Artist’ Trailer: James Franco Makes His ‘Ed Wood’ in ‘The Room’ Retelling

12 September 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of the most popular films of the century thus far, although perhaps not having anything to do with standard quality metrics, is  Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. Released nearly 15 years ago, the oddity has become a cult hit, garnering regular midnight screenings and a fanbase like few others. Now, the story of how it came to be has been made into a film by none other than James Franco.

The Disaster Artist recently came to Tiff and ahead of a December release from A24, the first full trailer has arrived. The making-of The Room tale is seen through the eyes of Greg Sestero (Dave Franco), who served as a line producer on the film and played Mark, of “oh, hi Mark” fame.

Based on the book of the same name by Sestero and Tom Bissell, The Disaster Artist features a loaded cast that includes Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, »

Amazon’s Galaxy Quest TV series back on track with new writer

20 August 2017 4:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having put its plans for a TV revival of the cult 1999 comedy Galaxy Quest on hold following the death of Alan Rickman, it seems that Amazon is once again turning its attention to the planned small screen series.

According to THR, writer, actor and comedian Paul Scheer (The Disaster Artist) has signed on to pen the script for the show, taking over from Robert Gordon, the writer of the original movie.

At this point, it is unclear whether Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot remains on board, nor whether cast members such as Tim Allen, Sigourney WeaverTony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni are set to return.

Galaxy Quest followed the cast of a defunct Star Trek-style TV show, who find themselves wrapped up in an intergalactic conflict when they are visited by aliens who believe the show to be a documentary. »

The ‘Galaxy Quest’ TV Show Has Been Revived

20 August 2017 3:13 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

The ‘Galaxy Quest‘ TV revival is back in development. When we first heard that the beloved sci-fi parody would be getting a revival via Amazon Studios, fans of the original ‘Galaxy Quest‘ (including myself) seemed thrilled to return to the universe. Then, in early 2016, Alan Rickman tragically passed away, completely halting the project for some time.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the series has once again begun development, with Paul Scheer (‘The League‘) set to write a new draft of the film to TV revival. Before Rickman’s unfortunate death, the idea was to bring back most of the original cast, including Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub and Sam Rockwell. Then according to Rockwell, things just fell apart:

“We were ready to sign up, and [then] Alan Rickman passed away and Tim Allen wasn’t available — he ha[d] [Last Man Standing] — and everybody’s schedule was all weird. It was going to shoot, »

THR are reporting that the long-gestating Galaxy Quest TV series has started moving forward again, with The League's Paul Scheer taking over writing duties from Robert Gordon, who wrote the 1999 film and was originally due to develop the series for Amazon.

Last year, it was revealed that the show had been put on the backburner after Alan Rickman passed away.

Galaxy Quest TV Show Finally Moving Ahead

17 August 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The long-touted Galaxy Quest TV series from Amazon looks to be finally going places. The small screen sequel to the cult favourite 1999 sci-fi comedy movie of the same name has been talked about for a while, but due to various hiccups, it’s never progressed very far. Until now, that is.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed today that Paul Scheer has been appointed as the series’ showrunner, while the movie’s writer, Robert Gordon, is on hand to exec produce. From what we understand, the project will provide a new, fresh take on the cult film, though it’s unclear whether any of the original stars will be returning.

For those unfamiliar, Galaxy Quest was a loving, very meta pastiche of Star Trek and sci-fi fandom as a whole. It featured an amazing cast, including Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub and Sam Rockwell, as a bunch of »
