First look at Danny Trejo as The Regulator in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

26 May 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Danny Trejo is set to return to the world of From Dusk Till Dawn later this summer in the second season of El Rey’s TV adaptation of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s cult feature, and we’ve got the first image of the tattooed tough guy in the new role of The Regulator…

Season two of the show expands the universe across two borders from Mexico to Texas, and deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds – Santánico (Eiza González) and Richie (Zane Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Kate (Madison Davenport) are scraping by in the South of the Border; Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb: and Carlos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama) and Scott Fuller »

26 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Way back in 2007, George Miller was set to direct Justice League Mortal for Warner Bros. He got as far as casting, with Armie Hammer (Batman), D.J. Cotrona (Superman), Megan Gale (Wonder Woman), Adam Brody (The Flash), and Common (Green Lantern) set for the main roles, before things fell apart. Warner Bros. now has other plans […]

Documentary About George Miller's Abandoned 'Justice League Mortal' In The Works

26 May 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It would seem there's just as much interest in comic book movies that didn't happen, as the ones that have. Last year the excellent "Jodorowsky's Dune" dropped, this year we've already received “The Death of ‘Superman Lives’: What Happened?” about Tim Burton's failed attempt to bring the Man Of Steel to the big screen, and now, perhaps the granddaddy of aborted superhero flicks is getting the documentary treatment. Director Ryan Unicomb is putting together "Miller's Justice League Mortal," which as the title suggest, will profile George Miller's scrapped "Justice League Mortal." On paper it was certainly promising, with the script bringing together the comic book storylines from “Jla: Tower of Babel,” “Superman: Sacrifice” and “Crisis on Infinite Earth” #8 with a cast that would've seen Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as The Flash and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. But the budget »

"Justice League: Mortal" Doco Planned

25 May 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following in the wake of such films as "Jodorowsky's Dune" and "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?," a new feature-length documentary is in the works about "Justice League Mortal," the DC Comics adaptation that "Mad Max: Fury Road" helmer George Miller was slated to direct before the project fell apart back in 2008.

Short film director Ryan Unicomb is teaming with producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell and Sydney-based writer/author Maria Lewis to develop the documentary which will reportedly be an unbiased account of the superhero ensemble project's gestation, development and ultimate disintegration.

Currently going by the working title of "Miller's Justice League Mortal," Unicomb is said to already have private investors lined up though he may augment that however with a crowd-funding campaign. The plan is to interview some of the cast and crew who would have been a part of the film along with showcasing some never-before-seen artwork and costumes. »

25 May 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2007, Warner Bros. announced that Mad Max creator George Miller had signed on to direct a motion-capture Justice League movie, which was going by the title of Justice League Mortal.

The project made it as far as pre-production, with a a cast that was set to include Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) as Batman, D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Superman, Megan Gale (Stealth) as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody (The O.C.) as Barry Allen, Anton Yelchin (Hearts in Atlantis) as Wally West, Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max) as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera (Heroes) as Aquaman and Common (American Gangster) as Green Lantern, before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug on the superhero ensemble.

Well, it looks like filmmakers Ryan Unicomb, Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell are set to delve into behind-the-scenes story of the aborted film, with the trio planning a new documentary entitled Miller’s Justice League Mortal, »

Terry Gilliam’s 2005 fantasy film The Brothers Grimm, which starred Matt Damon and the late Heath Ledger, is following in the footsteps of 12 Monkeys, Fargo and From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, now that Ehren Kruger has been tasked with penning a TV adaptation for Miramax.

Kruger, the prolific scribe behind The Ring and the last three Transformers films, wrote the script for the original movie and will build off that origin story for the series. As with The Brothers Grimm, the show is expected to follow the adventures of brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm as they hunt supernatural entities in 19th century Europe.

Zanne Devine, Miramax’s executive vice president of film and television, said:

“The tales of the Brothers Grimm are beloved around the world and offer an endless well of story and character to draw from. It’s a natural fit for television.”
