J.J. Abrams Brings Westworld TV Series Closer

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There is, as they say, nothing new under the sun. But that doesn’t mean that things can’t change. Many an eye may have rolled at the thought of J.J. Abrams creating a TV show from the concept of Westworld, but let’s not rush to judgement. It is beginning to sound as though a fresh set of eyes – those talented Abrams eyes, specifically – might just deliver a re-imagining beyond our wildest dreams.

The original Westworld movie was written and directed by Michael Crichton in 1973, and featured a western-themed amusement park, operated by humanoid robots that malfunction, and get out of hand. It was hugely successful, and in 1980, Crichton created a TV show based on the same concept – but it only ran for 5 episodes.

All had been quiet since then, until J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan began developing a Westworld TV show for Bad Robot and Warner Bros TV. »

Watch ‘Mr. Petrified Forrest,’ the Debut Film By ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Helmer Matt Reeves

7 July 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This is another edition of Short Starts, where we present a weekly short film(s) from the start of a filmmaker or actor’s career. Various things can happen to a famous director’s student films. Mostly they wind up hidden from us, sometimes permanently in the case of something intentionally destroyed, other times simply held from being uploaded to YouTube or another video site. It’s not often that a currently successful filmmaker is proud of his or her schoolwork, no matter how much money, passion and talent he or she put into it. That’s a shame, because a lot of these pre-professional shorts (and occasional features) aren’t that bad. Many have won awards, deservedly so. Others helped the student get a foot in the door, which obviously means there was promise there. In very, very rare circumstances, a student film will get distribution, possibly in an altered form.

Showtime Gives Thumbs Up to Cameron Crowe and J.J. Abrams's 'Roadies' Pilot

19 June 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Yet another film emigre to television is Cameron Crowe, a brainy writer-director who has not been well-served by the studio system. Showtime is producing an hour-long pilot for Cameron Crowe and J.J. Abrams's long-wished half-hour comedy "Roadies," which will focus on a group of characters that works behind-the-scenes on a traveling rock tour. Showtime describes the proposed show as "an inside look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of characters who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way." Crowe's a natural for this kind of story--his semi-autobiographical "Almost Famous" is still one of the definitive entries in the canon of rock-n-roll films--so it's not surprising that he'll be writing and directing the pilot.  Abrams will executive produce, along with frequent collaborator Bryan Burk ("Lost") and "My So-Called Life" creator Winnie Holzman, who will work...

Harrison Ford Injured on Set of 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

12 June 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Harrison Ford was injured on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII.

Oh no! Harrison Ford was injured on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. Read on for details...

The 71-year-old actor injured his ankle on Thursday, and was taken to a nearby hospital. No other details of the circumstances surrounding the injury have been revealed at this time, although there is predictably lots of wild speculation on the Internet. Maybe Greedo shot first after all? A source reportedly tells The Hollywood Reporter that the star was injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon, the spaceship piloted by his character, Han Solo. Ouch.

A statement from Disney to Et confirmed the news: "Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates."
