Emily S. Whitten: Baltimore Comic Con – Another Great Year!

29 September 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

I’ve said before that, despite liking to attend all flavors of fandom and comics conventions, including (clearly) the media guest-focused cons, I really love Baltimore Comic Con because it has stayed so focused on comics and comics creators. I’m happy to report that this has not changed.

I had a great time in Baltimore this year, doing some of the things that make me happiest at comic cons, like walking the exhibit hall and wandering Artist Alley to see what new things old friends are up to, meet folks whose work I know but whom I’ve never chatted with, and flip through the work of creators I haven’t ever encountered before. Amongst the fun things I discovered were this nifty accordion-style comic by Christa Cassano and Dean Haspiel; a gorgeous limited edition coloring book by Charles Vess, whose work I’ve loved for a long time »

DC's "Booster Gold" Movie Updates

18 September 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, Warners is fast-tracking a comedic "...buddy cop superhero feature...", based on DC Comics characters, to be directed/executive produced by "Arrow" and "The Flash" producer Greg Berlanti:

DC Comics' superheroes 'Booster Gold' and 'Blue Beetle' will star in a new feature before appearing in a "Justice League" feature.

'Booster Gold'  was created for DC Comics by Dan Jurgens, debuting in "Booster Gold" #1 (February 1986) and has been a member of the 'Justice League'.

The character is initially depicted as a glory-seeking showboat from the future, using knowledge of historical events and futuristic technology to stage high-publicity heroics.

Booster develops over the course of his publication history and through personal tragedies to become a true hero weighed down by the reputation he created for himself.

With no superhuman abilities, he is an excellent athlete, gaining 'powers' from artifacts he stole from a museum in the future. »

Red: Warren Ellis’ comic series is becoming a TV show

17 August 2015 12:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It’s already inspired two films, but now it looks like Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's Red is heading to the small screen…

Remember Red and Red 2? The Bruce Willis-starring films based on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's comic book series Red? Of course you do. Well, now, the same property is being adapted for TV.

NBC is the network behind this idea, and they’ve got Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber - who wrote the 2010 film, and its sequel – at the helm. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian – who produced the films – are involved, too.

There’s no word yet on what the announcement of this TV series means for the rumours of a Red 3 film, but our best guess is that the TV show has taken its place, seeing as so much the behind-the-scenes talent has jumped ship to the telly realm. That’s »

Red heading to the small screen courtesy of NBC

16 August 2015 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has revealed that NBC is developing a small screen adaptation of Red, which is being produced by the creative team behind the 2010 movie and its 2013 sequel.

Written by Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, who penned both movies, the small screen take on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner’s comic book series “will retain the core concept of the films but will be set in a more grounded and authentic world, focusing on the characters’ darkly hilarious struggles to survive civilian life as they simultaneously fight for and against the very organization that threw them out.”

Red tells the story of a group of former CIA agents designated ‘Retired Extremely Dangerous’, who are forced back into action after an assassination attempt.

Lionsgate TV is producing the series, alongside Di Bonaventura Pictures Television.

Bruce Willis Action Comedy 'Red' Is Becoming a TV Show

15 August 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before long, ever movie will become a TV show in the future. It's certainly not a new idea, as many movies have gotten the TV adaptation treatment. But over the past year, each network has ramped up this idea, abandoning new ideas to instead focus on series that already have a built in audience and title recognition. The latest movie series to head to the small screen is Red, which debuted in 2010 and was followed by a sequel in 2013. NBC is behind this new iteration, though it's not known if Summit Entertainment has now abandoned the idea of another big screen sequel.

NBC is developing the Red TV series as an hourlong action drama that will be directly based on the feature film franchise. The small screen version is coming from the big screen series' creative team. Jon Hoeber and&#160Erich Hoeber, the duo behind both the Red and Red 2 screenplay, »

The "Red" Films Are Becoming A TV Series

14 August 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

NBC has announced plans to develop "Red," an hourlong TV series based on the film franchise.

The franchise's writers Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber along with producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are re-teaming for the small screen version which Lionsgate TV and Di Bonaventura Pictures Television would produce.

Released in 2010 and 2013, the action comedies are inspired by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's limited comic book series of the same name which followed a group of REDs (Retired Extremely Dangerous operatives) who return to action after the CIA sends assassins after one of them.

Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren and Karl Urban starred in the films with the first one grossing $200 million worldwide.

The TV series version will keep the core concept of the films along with the darkly comedic tone, but set it in a more grounded and believable world.
