Two years ago, Peter Berg (Battleship, Hancock) confirmed that a new movie based on his "Friday Night Lights" TV series, which ended after five seasons, was in active development. The plan was to begin filming in 2012, but that never happened. Then two months ago, Adrianne Palicki (GI Joe: Retaliation) revealed that there are talks of raising money for a "Friday Night Lights" movie through KickStarter in hopes of duplicating the results of "Veronica Mars." And now, producer Brian Grazer confirmed that "Friday Night Lights" is in the works and that KickStarter will likely be used. The film would be made through Grazer's Imagine Entertainment company, which is co-owned by director Ron Howard. This once again raises the question of whether multi-millionaires should be asking fans to pay for films that these millionaires will profit from. »
I can already feel my cynicism taking over as I look over my notes for this article about the CW’s Wonder Woman prequel series, Amazon. Full disclosure: aside from Batman, I have zero love for the heroes of the DC Comics universe. Superman, Flash, Green Lantern – I’ll pass on all of them. So it is completely beyond my understanding why Wonder Woman has been sought after these last few years as a potential television series. First we had that Adrianne Palicki pilot on NBC in 2011, and then the series went to the CW, but was re-imagined as an origin story for Diana Prince before she becomes a super hero. So it would be the Smallville of Wonder Woman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heinberg has been replaced by "Heroes" writer Aron Eli Coleite on the rewrite. "It is being redeveloped. We're waiting for the script to come in; we haven't seen it yet," CW President Mark Pedowitz told reporters after the network's 2013 upfront presentation. "We are preparing to pilot it off-cycle should the script be what we want it to be. We do not want to produce something that doesn't work for that particular character -- it is the trickiest of all the DC characters to get done."

With "Arrow" a success on the small screen and superheroes making big bucks on the big screen, it's no wonder that the CW is apparently giving one of the most iconic superheroes of all time a second chance. Entertainment Weekly reports that the prequel series centered around Wonder Woman, "Amazon," still has some life left in it despite not getting a pilot order in January.
"Oh God yes," said CW president Mark Pedowitz after being asked if The CW was still interested in a new Wonder Woman show. "It's being redeveloped. We don't want to produce something that doesn't do the franchise justice... It's the trickiest of all the DC characters."
This is great news for comic book fans eager to see more adaptations on the small screen, and "Arrow's" success should help this series' odds. But come on, Wonder Woman is the trickiest character to adapt? »

Clear eyes, full hearts: According to a new report from Deadline.com, Imagine Entertainment producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard are planning to use crowdfunding to help bring "Friday Night Lights" back to the big screen. Imagine is the studio that produced five seasons of the acclaimed television series, which itself started as a book by Buzz Bissinger and a movie from director Peter Berg.
"We made a terrific feature with Pete Berg, turned it into a terrific TV series and will now make a movie from that series," Grazer told Deadline.com. "I'm not sure such a thing has been done before."
For fans, the idea that the future of "Friday Night Lights" rests in the interiors of their wallets should be of little surprise. After Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell used Kickstarter to fund a big-screen version of cult series "Veronica Mars," "Friday Night Lights" co-star Adrianne Palicki »

As the CW announced their Fall slate of series, one noticeable absence was their Wonder Woman series Amazon. Nowhere to be seen, many began to wonder if it would suffer the same fate as the David Kelley/Adrianne Palicki NBC series with the awful costume. Don't count it out yet, according to Entertainment Weekly. The magazine quotes CW head Mark Pedowitz as saying: .It.s being redeveloped. We don.t want to produce something. that doesn.t do the franchise justice." Amazon would follow »

The famous amazon may still fly on network TV.
CW Topper Mark Pedowitz told reporters after the network’s upfront presentation today that the Wonder Woman prequel dubbed Amazon remains in development, even though it didn’t make the cut for fall. “Oh God yes,” Pedowitz replied, when asked whether the project was still alive. “It’s being redeveloped. We don’t want to produce something” that doesn’t do the franchise justice.
“It’s the trickiest of all the DC characters,” he added.

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think the idea of a She-Ra TV show is actually all that bad. Oh, who am I kidding. It’s a pretty awful idea. Probably just as awful as a Wonder Woman TV show, which I suspect is the whole point of this skit. (I’m still a little miff I didn’t get the chance to see Adrianne Palicki running around punching dudes. Man, I was so looking forward to that, too.) Anyways, here’s a new Funny or Die skit that posits Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue as She-Ra, in a rebooted show on NBC. Like, on every single show of NBC. It’s funny because it’s true. (Kinda.) The skit co-stars “Game of Thrones’” Alfie Allen, whose character’s storyline in “Thrones” is quickly becoming extremely unnecessary and every time I see it, I’m reminded that »

Welcome to We Got This Covered’s Deals of the Day. In this brand new column, we’ll be scouring the web in order to bring you hot deals on Blu-Rays and video games. Today, we’ve found three television related Blu-Rays that we believe are worth your attention. Check them out below.
1) Person Of Interest: The Complete First Season
Person Of Interest actually had its season two finale last night, but that doesn’t mean you should miss out on picking up season one on Blu-Ray. From the mind of Jonathan Nolan (brother of Christopher Nolan), comes one of television’s most exciting new shows. Though only two seasons in, Person of Interest is already shaping up to be a throughly enjoyable series with quite a large following. Michael Emmerson and Jim Caviezel are excellent in the two lead roles and as the mystery continues to grow, we »

A few years ago actress Lake Bell dropped a bombshell on fanboys at San Diego ComicCon when she declared that she had the moxy (and the guns) to play Wonder Woman. Since then the role has been occupied by Adrianne Palicki in a famously failed TV pilot and by Kimberly Kane in a XXX parody.
Sounds like the big-screen iteration of the gig is still available, and there's still a glimmer of hope that someday, DC's long-delayed "Justice League" movie will actually be produced. During an interview promoting her survival thriller "Black Rock," we checked in with Bell to find out whether she's still looking to get into the spandex-and-spangles game.
Thank you, that's awesome! That is a secret dream of mine. »

Another week and another deal, today Amazon is offering the Friday Night Lights: The Complete Series DVD set for only $39.99. I personally have never watched this show, but I know the lady of the house loves it and I know she's not alone and if you'd like to get in on the deal click here. There has been talk of "Friday Night Lights" returning to the big screen for some time, but just as that started to seem like a sure thing almost a year ago to the day, little has been heard of the potential of it actually happening since. The show starred the likes of Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, Aimee Teegarden, Taylor Kitsch, Minka Kelly and Adrianne Palicki, most of which have become household names by now following the show's five season run. You can pick up a copy of this set amazon asin="B005CA4SOM »

Good news, "Friday Night Lights" fans: Tami Taylor herself says there is still hope for a "Fnl" movie.
Connie Britton, who played Coach Taylor's wife in the beloved NBC series, recently spoke about the possibility of a "Friday Night Lights" movie -- a project that has long been the subject of rumors from fans and industry insiders.
"I would love it to happen. I'm a big supporter of it happening. I don't know if we will see it or not," Britton told E!. "I know it was being written and [show creator] Peter Berg is really serious about so I think if everybody got on board, I don't see why we couldn't have a movie."
Ending its five season-run in 2011, "Friday Night Lights" was largely praised by critics, and gained much of its popular acclaim once it was made available on streaming websites such as Netflix. The series is based on a »

Back in December 2011, I received a tip that Sgt. Slaughter would be appearing in G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Obviously, that wasn't the case but it appears there was some truth to that rumor. Before diving into wrestling news, Sgt. Slaughter reveals that he was originally asked to play the role in G.I. Joe: Retaliation that went to Bruce Willis. "Yes, I was originally supposed to be the part of Bruce Willis' [as] Sgt. Slaughter but because we had a conflict in toy companies, Hasbro and Mattel, I wasn't able to do it. It's one of those things, Rock doesn't have a contract so he can do what he wants to do and he's been very successful." Related Content: Movie Review: G.I. Joe: Retaliation 2D G.I.

I am a movie buff. I follow shows like AMC’s Movie Talk via YouTube on a daily basis. I also check IMDb every day as well. Let’s face it in the culture of cinema; one of the most talked about things I’ve read about this year is a Justice League movie. This, of course, would be Warner Bros’ answer to last year’s mega-hit The Avengers. This film by itself went on to gross $623 million domestically and become the highest grossing film of the year.
We have to be honest, myself included, Warner Bros has not made the best films when it comes to their DC properties. Trying to bring Catwoman, Green Lantern and Jonah Hex in stand-alone films, have all failed in the process of establishment. Catwoman took $100 million to make but only ended up making 40% of its budget back in its total box office run. »
