'10 Cloverfield Lane' Director Dan Trachtenberg to Tackle 'Black Mirror' Episode for Netflix

29 April 2016 6:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Isn't Your Average Blockbuster Sequel (Review) Netflix's "Black Mirror" adaptation has been getting together an excellent roster of talent over the past couple months, including filmmakers like Joe Wright ("Atonement," "Hanna") and Jakob Verbruggen ("Code 37"), and now Deadline reports that "10 Cloverfield Lane" breakout director Dan Trachtenberg will be joining the fold to helm an episode. This marks the first major career move for Trachtenberg after earning stellar reviews for his mystery box thriller this past March. Given the way he expertly calculated tension and grounded a science-fiction story in as much reality as possible, Trachtenberg seems like a natural fit for "Black Mirror."  Based on the popular British anthology series of the same name, Netflix's "Black Mirror" will similarly feature dark and satirical stories that explore society's »

Netflix announced last year plans for twelve new episodes which will be handled by the same writers and producers. So far the likes of Bryce Dallas Howard, Malachi Kirby and Alice Eve are confirmed to be appearing in the new batch.

Netflix Alum Madeline Brewer Boards The New Season Of Black Mirror

8 April 2016 2:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has delved into its own talent pool to fill out its upcoming season of the awesomely creepy anthology series Black Mirror, hiring Madeline Brewer for an unspecified role on the show. Brewer’s previous credits on the streaming service include Orange is the New Black and Hemlock Grove.

Since Black Mirror reboots after the end of each episode, she won’t have quite a long stay on the technology-infused series, netting the role of a female lead for just one episode. She’ll star opposite Malachi Kirby (who’s on the new Roots adaptation) in an episode directed by Jakob Verbruggen.

Besides a title, “Men Against Fire,” no information was given regarding the specifics of the episode’s plot. Given the history of Black Mirror though, you can probably expect it to be some kind of trippy, horrifying, clever send-up of our modern dependency on technology.

Emmy spotlight: 'London Spy' stars Ben Whishaw, Charlotte Rampling & Jim Broadbent bring humanity to spy thriller

18 March 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Imagine "Looking" as written by John le Carre, and you've got a pretty good idea of "London Spy," a five-hour British miniseries that tackles queer themes through the prism of a spy thriller. It's written by Tom Rob Smith and directed by Jakob Verbruggen, both worthy of Emmy consideration -- it's visually stylish, tensely paced and features deep dialogue scenes that are almost hypnotic in how they draw you into story and character -- but I'd like to focus on three actors who I think are key to the story's success: Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Emmy Predictions Whishaw has become the kind of actor who makes me excited for a project just by virtue of being in it, having given a wide range of performances in the last five years that I've almost uniformly liked. That includes »

The Many Seductions of 'London Spy'

19 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The scene that caused a minor furor when "London Spy" (BBC America) debuted in Britain comes 26 minutes into the series premiere, but by that point its first seduction is already long complete. In fact, the knot of limbs in which Danny (the brilliant Ben Whishaw) and Alex (Edward Holcroft) consummate their unlikely attraction is all the more beguiling for being held, for a time, at arm's length: by a chance encounter, a quiet breakfast, a day spent along the shore. Sex is integral to "London Spy," created and written by the novelist Tom Rob Smith and directed by Jakob Verbruggen ("The Fall"), only in the sense that our most intimate acts necessarily intersect with the wider world—even, or perhaps especially, when we wish to keep them secret.
