U.K. Film, TV Industry Players React to ‘Seismic’ Brexit Decision

24 June 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

British voters’ stunning decision to turn their backs on the European Union has left many of the country’s leading TV and film players reeling. Here, some of them reflect on the new, uncertain situation Britain now finds itself in and how it might affect the industry.

Jane Tranter’s production company Bad Wolf has a first-look deal with HBO, and is producing BBC-New Line TV series “His Dark Materials.” Previously, as a BBC senior executive, her credits included “Doctor Who” and “Da Vinci’s Demons”:

“The news is bleak. Like many I am embarrassed and ashamed of how our politicians, on all sides and all parties, have handled this referendum.

“From a practical and cultural point of view, the U.K. television industry is today steeling itself to working with Europe from a position of isolation and unknown financial future and regulation. From a creative point of view, I »

5 TV Shows to Watch If You Love Witches & Everything Supernatural

12 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

From the Wicked Witch of the West to the sheer terror of "The Witch," our love affair -- or fearful fascination -- with witches endures. And where there are witches, you'll often find their supernatural colleagues, whether viciously murderous werewolves or sexy, glittering vampires. Whatever your poison, TV -- starting with "The Twilight Zone" and trucking on through "Hemlock Grove" -- is always ready to indulge your thirst for the witchy, the spooky, and the macabre.

'Salem' (2014 - )

Let's start with the witchiest of all witch shows -- the Wgn's "Salem" is ready to stock you up on warty noses, frog-based potions, and hexes aplenty. And that's what makes this somewhat campy, horror-tinged drama so shamelessly watchable: It eagerly embraces the world of witches -- including the quasi-historic Salem trials -- and isn't afraid to get downright soap operatic.

Ridiculous? Yes. Gory? Yes. Bloody good fun? You know the answer. »

Kristen Stewart Lets Down Her Guard: Inside Her Reinvention

9 May 2016 5:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kristen Stewart arrives at a French restaurant in Los Feliz without an entourage — no publicist, no bodyguard. She’s incognito, with a hat pulled low on her head, hands in her pockets, bare arms dressed with tattoos. Looking like any other hipster, she greets the waiter with a mellow “What’s up, dude?” (“dude” and “f—k” are her two favorite words) and orders a glass of champagne with a cup of ice. As she reflects on her life, she takes periodic sips, letting the cubes, one by one, melt into the fizz.

At only 26, Stewart is in the middle of reinventing her career. After catapulting to fame at 17 in the young-adult vampire franchise “Twilight,” she couldn’t leave her house without flashbulbs trailing her every step. The public became obsessed with her relationship with her then-boyfriend (and co-star) Robert Pattinson, and she topped every studio’s wish list for it-girl parts. »

Twilight Scribe Stephenie Meyer To Produce Ya Romance Anna Dressed In Blood

4 May 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Twilight mastermind Stephenie Meyer has acquired the rights to a budding new Ya franchise. Entitled Anna Dressed in Blood, the supernatural romance has already plucked its leading stars in fresh-faced newcomers Maddie Hasson (I Saw the Light) and Gotham‘s Cameron Monaghan.

Working under her Fickle Fish Films banner, Meyer will nurture the adaptation of Kendare Blake’s novel series, with Step Up director Trish Sie at the helm and Allison Wood on screenwriting duties.

Remaining very much in the soppy-meets-supernatural wheelhouse for Meyer, Anna Dressed in Blood spans two relatively successful novels, telling the spooky tale of one Cas Lowood. Inheriting his family’s expertise of the paranormal, Cas’ sole objective is to kill the dead and save the living, but that all changes when he encounters a seemingly vengeful spirit known as Anna.

Having slaughtered anyone and everyone that cross her path, Blake’s book explores the strange »

'Allegiant' Fail: Why Ya Movies Dying Is Bad for Everyone

21 March 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Welcome to the Scorch!

Bella Swan and Edward Cullen may live forever in the supposed bliss of a deathless union, but the genre they jumpstarted has proven to be decidedly mortal. It was only a few short years ago that the blitz of post-Potter Ya adaptations — characterized by dystopian settings, a fetish for the supernatural, and a buffet of genetically indistinguishable British boys — was standing toe-to-toe with superhero movies atop the Hollywood food chain. But the times they are a changin', fluctuating like the hormones of their target demographic.
