Week in Review: Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ is finally getting made

23 January 2015 10:26 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the most anticipated films of 2015 is Martin Scorsese’s Silence. Although that anticipation was under the presumption that Silence would actually come out this year, let alone be made. The film has been in pre-production for ages, by Marty’s account, nearly two decades, but the film is finally coming together with funding from Fábrica de Cine and SharpSword Films, Deadline reported.

Silence stars Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver (yes, he’s in Everything now) as two Jesuit priests in 17th Century Japan on a mission to spread Christianity and locate their mentor, played by Liam Neeson. The pair face incredible, violent persecution while on their journey, and the film has been likened to Scorsese’s last East Asia epic, Kundun.

Silence is based on a 1966 novel by Shūsaku Endō and is adapted from a script by Jay Cocks, who worked with Scorsese on his last long delayed period piece, »

17 January 2015 4:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's "Peter Pan Live!" may not have been a smash, but Fox's previously announced "Grease: Live" is still moving forward with both a premiere date and pair of female leads.

Wayward Pines Team Talks Thriller's Twin Peaks Vibe, 'Perfect Reveal'

17 January 2015 3:40 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fox’s upcoming event series Wayward Pines is taking some cues from the equally mysterious Twin Peaks.

The late ABC drama — which is being revived by Showtime next year — “was an inspiration for the [Fox] show, for sure,” executive producer Chad Hodge admitted at a Televisions Critics Association winter press tour panel on Saturday. The Ep noted that Blake Crouch, the author of the books on which Pines is based, was a big fan of David Lynch’s cult favorite.

However, the 10-episode thriller — which follows a Secret Service agent (played by Matt Dillon, There’s Something About Mary) who comes »

Fox's Last Man on Earth: Toilet Pools, Beardists and More Things to Know

17 January 2015 3:31 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Though he’s The Last Man on Earth, Will Forte (maybe?) has some friends.

Appearing at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, the Saturday Night Live alum announced that Mary Steenburgen (30 Rock) will pop up on Fox’s post-apocalyptic comedy, which bows March 1.

Steenburgen thus joins January Jones (Mad Men), Kristen Schaal (30 Rock), Cleopatra Coleman (Neighbours) and Mel Rodriguez (Getting On) on the guest-starring cast — though this doesn’t mean that Forte’s character, Phil Miller, is not [see show title]. Instead, some or all will appear in flashbacks or via other narrative devices. (Alluding to another castaway-themed program, executive producer Phil Lord promised with a laugh, »

17 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Tell me about it, stud. Julianne Hough will be saying that iconic line when she tackles the role of Sandy in Fox's Grease: Live, which is set to air in January 2016. Joining the Dancing With the Stars judge is Vanessa Hudgens as iconic bad girl Rizzo. While they are currently the only cast members, casting is currently underway for the musical's other major roles, including Danny Zuko.

Fox Plans "Grease" Musical, NBC On "Pan" Flop

17 January 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

NBC had huge success with "The Sound of Music Live" two years ago, pulling 18.5 million viewers for the one-off event. Yet while many know "The Sound of Music" off by heart, inexplicably the network chose the far less popular or even known stage musical version of "Peter Pan" for a follow-up.

Understandably, the ratings fell with just 9.1 million viewers tuning in for that broadcast. At the TCA Winter Tour presentation this week, NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt put the blame for the failure on the lack of star power and the lack of awareness of "Peter Pan" as a stage musical. They also suggested either "The Wiz" or "The Music Man" for their next attempt.

If there's one musical movie as ubiquitous and well-known as "The Sound of Music" though, it's "Grease" and Fox announced plans today for a live television production of "Grease: The Musical". The broadcast plans to »

TCA 2015: “The Office” alum discusses the challenge of making a miserable character worth watching

Rainn Wilson is moving on from playing an eccentric weasel/suck-up on “The Office” to starring as a brilliant but misanthropic detective on Fox’s upcoming series “Backstrom.” During the panel for the new show at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena on Saturday, Wilson tackled the topic of why audiences should tune in to watch a character whose disdain for mankind sometimes extends into racism and sexism.

Wilson’s conclusion: Sure, Det. Lt. Everett Backstrom is “an asshole” — who’s worth getting to know. »

Fox Execs Talk Sleepy Hollow Fixes, Bones' Future, a Jack-Less 24, X-Files Revival, Utopia's Failure and More

17 January 2015 10:47 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sleepy Hollow needs to be roused from a certain Season 2 slumber, Fox Television Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman acknowledged Saturday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Walden noted that the sophomore drama faces “a very high level of difficulty,” juggling as it does relationships, mystery-telling, iconic historical characters and both period and contemporary settings. With an eye on the season-to-date and its waning ratings, she told TVLine, “The show got a bit overly serialized,” so their wish is to “return the fun” that was a hallmark of Season 1.

Given those concerns, Sleepy was Mia from Saturday’s announced renewals, »
