Supernatural Flick The Empty Man Recruits James Badge Dale

7 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

13 Hours and Iron Man 3 star James Badge Dale has inked a deal to headline The Empty Man, a supernatural thriller based on a Boom! Studios comic.

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that Dale joins the Fox thriller in the title role, one described as an “ex-cop plagued by the violent death of his wife and son who battles to find a missing girl but soon discovers a sinister presence around him.”

Lifting inspiration from Cullen Bunn and Vanesa R. Del Rey’s comic of the same name, THR cautions that The Empty Man will diverge from its source material in some respects, but stopped short of disclosing what those creative departures will entail. What we do know is Ross Richie and Stephen Christy are attached to produce on behalf of Boom! Studios, and production is expected to get underway in South Africa before the year’s end. »

9 June 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been "years and years" since Taylor Kitsch reunited with his Friday Night Lights costars, and he can't wait to spend time with his former castmates this weekend. Thanks to Marriott Rewards, Kitsch is teaming up with Zach Gilford, Minka Kelly, and Aimee Teegarden to compete in Saturday's Spartan Race in Chicago, where the group will be tackling obstacles and, as Kitsch joked, possibly calling Kyle Chandler for a prerace pep talk, Coach Taylor style. Over the past few years, the 35-year-old actor has starred in movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Lone Survivor, and last year he was back on the small screen with True Detective. It was his breakout role as Fnl's Tim Riggins, though, that made him a household name, and to talk to Kitsch is to remember why his popular character is such a fan favorite. Like Riggins, Kitsch is charming and quick with the one-liners - which makes sense, »
