‘Wolf Hall’ Producer Playground Enters ‘The Spider Network’

26 April 2017 4:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Production company Playground, founded by former HBO Films president Colin Callender, has optioned rights to narrative nonfiction book “The Spider Network” by award-winning Wall Street Journal writer David Enrich.

Playground produces for film, television and stage but has yet to announce what formats would be developed for “The Spider Network,” an expose of the interest-rate-fixing scandal that rocked London and other global financial centers. Playground produced both the TV and theater adaptations of “Wolf Hall” and helped produce smash hit “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” which recently won a record nine Olivier Awards in Britain.

The company will develop “The Spider Network” from its New York offices under the stewardship of senior vice president of development and production Scott Huff and director of development and production Elyse Dolbec.

When an outbreak of plague* is the best thing that happens to you, you are experiencing some rough times, indeed.

Infinity War Set Photos Tease Big Changes for Vision and Scarlet Witch

20 April 2017 9:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, production on Avengers: Infinity War had shifted to Edinburgh, Scotland, with new set photos revealing Paul Bettany's Vision. He was seen walking down a Scottish street late at night. Another video surfaced just a day later, which showed Vision using his special powers to fly away after a number of attackers from The Black Order had knocked him to the ground. No further details were given. Today, we have even more set photos, and they uncover a few rather huge Spoilers for Vision and another popular character from the Avengers movies. If you're trying to avoid huge spoilers for Infinity War, then you'll want to stop reading right now.

Shortly after the Vision set photos emerged, we learned that Elizabeth Olsen had arrived in Scotland to film scenes in the Old Town area of Edinburgh, along with a number Marvel stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, »

White Princess Ep Defends Changing Book's Rape Scene in Premiere: 'No Way We're Putting That on Screen'

16 April 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Those who read Phillippa Gregory’s novel The White Princess and watched the premiere of Starz’s adaptation of the book on Sunday likely noticed something quite different about Henry and Lizzie’s charged first coupling.

In Gregory’s work, “Henry very actively rapes Lizzie,” executive producer Emma Frost tells TVLine. “That was something that I felt wasn’t the only possible route and wasn’t something that I feel is right for a TV drama, and isn’t something a 21st century female audience is going to be okay with on any level.”

American Gods Review: Strong Cast, High Style Make Drama a Divine Delight

16 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Starz’s American Gods takes on a daunting — let’s call it Goliath-sized — task in adapting Neil Gaiman’s sweeping fantasy novel for the small screen. After all, the cult-favorite book is a road-trip tale, an examination of the nature of belief, one man’s journey toward enlightenment and a primer in world religions.

That’s a lot to fit into an hour each week. Does the freshman drama, which premieres April 30, make it work? Let the congregation say: Amen.

And The Next James Bond Is…

5 April 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Let’s take a few minutes to reflect on what could have been.

After two years of speculation, it seems like the question of who will be the seventh actor to take on the iconic role in the long-running film series will have to go on the back burner. Last Monday, the New York Post gossip section published an article citing multiple sources that reported that current Bond actor Daniel Craig is in the final stages of negotiating a return to his most iconic role. If true, it would mark a pretty serious change of tune for Craig, who, in an oft quoted Time Out interview from October 2015, responded to the question of his returning to do another Bond movie thusly: “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All »
