Megaton has a solid resume of action films that include Taken 2, Taken 3, Transporter 2, and Colombiana. He will be directing the film from a script being written by actor-turned-scribe Hal Ozsan (Dawson’s Creek).
The Champion sounds like it could make for a really cool action film. Who doesn't like gladiator movies?!
The director of Taken 2 and Taken 3 - Olivier Megaton - is set to tackle The Champion...
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a science-fiction stylised take on the Gladiator genre is in the works with the Taken sequels director Olivier Megaton. Brandishing the title, The Champion, the prospective film is being described as 'a futuristic Spartacus', depicting the ordeal of a man imprisoned for an act of terrorism he apparently didn’t commit and forced to participate in a type of gladiator arena that yields the possibility of winning his freedom.
It’s a familiar sounding story, recalling the various versions of the Roman Empire-era-set Spartacus story like the 1960 Kirk Douglas-starring classic and the iterations of the 2010-2013 Starz Spartacus television series like Blood And Sand, starring the late Andy Whitfield. A futuristic take on the grueling grandiosity of the gladiator arena should make

Private Number (Arc Entertainment) - 5/1
A series of sinister phone calls haunt an ex-alcoholic writer as he struggles to finish a novel. Efforts to trace the calls result in dead ends, leaving the author with no choice but to solve the mystery himself.
Famous Monsters. Not to blow my upcomin’ review of the flick, but I dug Private Number; it wasn’t at all what I expected going in, and it was full of fun lil’ surprises that were ultimately truly satisfying for this horror hound. So how did ya come up with the meat n’ potatoes of Private Number?
LazRael Lison. Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed it. Well I have always been a creative person since I started writing as a child. Being a huge fan of the genre,

The major networks seem to want to get new comedies off the ground and I really wanted to like “Dads”. After all, the cast has the return of Martin Mull (who I’ve always thought was a dependable actor for those guys who seem to be the only ones with any common sense in a room full of hyper whackos), Giovanni Ribisi, and Seth Green. Usually, I find Seth Green hilarious, even if the rest of the material around him isn’t quite so funny. I watched the first episode. It should have appealed to me on a couple of levels.
James Van Der Beek stopped by the taping of tonight's "Dancing With the Stars" to promote his new show, "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23," because cross-promotion is what ABC does best. Van Der Beek's wife wasn't able to join him because she's got a newborn at home, so he brought another date -- and our hearts sang when we spotted him.
"Bonus points for the DC fan who can tell me who I'm sitting next to at DWTS..." the Beek tweeted.
Duh. His plus-one was Hal Ozsan, who appeared in 14 episodes of "Dawson's Creek" over the course of the series' last two seasons. Ozsan played Todd Carr, a temperamental director who ended up taking Dawson under his wing and showing him the ropes of the film industry.

Pretty exciting episode last week. How will the events of Checkmate continue to play out through the rest of Season 3, leading into March?
The new original series Common Law kicks into high gear when two cops discover they have one problem - each other. Despite their differences, they are still the best detectives on the force but when things come to a head on the eve of their "seven-year itch," their captain forces them into couples' therapy to save their "marriage." The 12-episode one-hour series stars Michael Ealy (The Good Wife, Californication), Warren Kole (The Chicago Code, 24), Jack McGee (The Fighter, Rescue Me) and Sonya Walger (Lost, In Treatment) and is currently in production in New Orleans.
Travis Marks (Michael Ealy) and Wes Mitchell (Warren Kole) are a pair of odd couple detectives who
I am kind of a TV junkie. I’ll admit that. There are several shows that I watch frequently and have a tendency to recommend to anyone who’ll hold still long enough to express even the barest hint of interest. There are also several shows that I have purchased in their entirety on DVD. For a long time, if I were asked what my favorite show was, I wouldn’t have been able to name one.
That all changed in 2005. I considered the WB to be a haven for soapy and fairly ridiculous teen-drama fair after they’d pretty much abolished and animation line-up that I’d loved to watch. There was a new show premiering, though, that looked promising. As a sci-fi/fantasy fan, the lack of anything to take the place of “The X-Files” was disconcerting.
Tim DeKay, who plays FBI agent Burke, will be making his television directing debut with the episode, "Stealing Home," set to air February 2012. The episode, set around a "priceless stolen baseball," began shooting Tuesday in New York City, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
"It's interesting because I look at it from an actor's point of view," DeKay told The Hollywood Reporter last week. "It confirms my thought about always relying on the director when he or she gives me a note. To a degree, they perhaps know the moment a little better than I do as an actor because [they've] been with the script much longer."
