Turner Broadcasting’s TruTV has greenlit three new series and a host of specials and development projects as it builds up the volume of original programming.

John Abraham and Nishikant Kamat go head to head in Rocky Handsome

Actor John Abraham and director Nishikant Kamat have been friends for years but the two will go head to head onscreen in the upcoming Rocky Handsome. The film, set in Goa, Mumbai, Pune and Seychelles, traces the journey of a man who goes on a rampage when the only person he cares about (a little girl) is kidnapped. Nishikant, who has directed the action thriller, also plays the antagonist — a Goan ganglord, Kevin Pereira.

His assistant directors believed that, since he knew the script inside out, he was the right choice for the role. Asked about it, Nishikant says, “I’m confident in front of the camera, but acting and directing simultaneously can be scary.”

Talking about his friend, director and now co-actor’s look and performance, John Abraham says, “When I learnt that Nishi would play the villain, I was quite excited. When I saw him getting out of

Comic-Con and Lionsgate Partner Up to Create New Streaming Service

  • Cinelinx
A new streaming service is coming over the summer, when Lionsgate and the people behind Comic-Con join forces to create Cchq! The result sounds a lot like a former cable TV channel. Come inside for more details.

For those of you new to the cable scene, there was once a TV channel dedicated to nerds. It was known as G4. G4 housed a plethora of amazing shows like the original Japanese Ninja Warrior, X Play, and Attack of the Show. After some epic years, the channel was cancelled and changed to Esquire, which is still a good channel but anywhere near as great as G4. Now, it seems like Lionsgate and Comic-con are coming together to form something very similar.

Below is the complete Press Release of the service!

Nishikant Kamat and John Abraham to have a face off in Rocky Handsome

  • Bollyspice
The first look of John Abraham for the film Rocky Handsome had set the temperatures soaring with his brawny look holding a gun in a dapper suit attire. And now we have the first look of the baddie of the film who is also making his directorial debut – Nishikant Kamat!

Nishikant plays the role of Kevin Pereira – a Goan gang lord who is bald, mean and the one to watch out for. Though the role of Kevin Pereira was supposed to be done by someone else, but due to last minute change, Nishikant’s close associates suggested he should do the role.

Since Nishikant knows the script inside and out he gave it a shot and is quite excited with the way it has shaped up.

When quizzed Nishikant about his role he said, I enjoy acting and am confident in front of the camera but doing it in your own film can be scary.

Bryan Singer thinks Olivia Munn is a Psylocke for an 'X-Men' role
When I used to make semi-frequent appearances on "Attack Of The Show," it was always made easier by co-hosts Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn. Kevin walked that fine line between game show host and uber-nerd, and Olivia was the living embodiment of Amazing Amy's "Cool Girl" speech. Since she's made the jump to acting full-time, Munn's been defined, like most actors, by the strength of the material she's given. In the best written scenes on "The Newsroom," she's proven herself a fairly sharp and interesting performer. Bryan Singer seems to be a fan based on this Tweet: Excited to welcome @oliviamunn as Betsy Braddock! #Psylocke #XmenApocalypse #Xmen — Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) April 13, 2015 Psylocke is a character who's had about as complicated a history as any of the X-Men, and Munn should make an interesting physical match for the character. Sounds like they're using "X-Men: Apocalypse" to
