D.O.A. Blood River Begins Shooting in Louisiana and Announces More Cast

23 December 2016 6:00 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

A classic film noir is getting a remake and modern update.

Silver Plane Films and Kingfisher Media announced that the production for D.O.A. Blood River will start shooting this month in Louisiana.

The noir thriller is inspired by director Rudolph Mate’s 1950 thriller D.O.A.

D.O.A Blood River will follow Sam Collins as a pharmaceutical sales rep, who visits a small town in Louisiana to close a business deal of a lifetime. Collins enters a world of sex, corruption and murder—as he is poisoned with no antidote. In a search for answers, he turns to a local girl named Jesse, in which their path leads to a voodoo priestess that confirms Sam’s fate. With nowhere to go and no others to trust, Sam and Jesse are on the run from police detectives, the Mob and a corrupt sheriff who wants him dead.

From Luke Cage to Supergirl: why superhero TV is better than the movies

27 September 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

While big-screen comic book blockbusters’ powers are waning, supermen and women are taking flight on the small screen

Will 2016 go down as the year the world finally got sick of superhero movies? Put aside the grudging thumbs-up for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and things are looking shaky for studios that have invested heavily in superhero futures. Attempts by Warner Bros to jumpstart its own Marvel-style shared cinematic universe have been critical Kryptonite. Batman V Superman? A false dawn. Suicide Squad? Dead on arrival. Things aren’t much better over at Fox, with the surprise success of ultraviolent whoopee cushion Deadpool cancelled out by the tepid reaction to X-Men: Apocalypse. When it comes to superheroes, it feels like there has been a tangible shift in power. The most exciting, emotional and surprising storytelling is now happening on TV, »

Hugh O’Brian, Star of TV’s ‘The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,’ Dies at 91

Hugh O’Brian, who starred in the long-running series “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,” died Monday. He was 91.

The actor died peacefully in his Beverly Hills home, according to a statement from Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership.

ABC Western “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,” in which the exceedingly handsome, muscular O’Brian starred as the title character, ran for 221 episodes from 1955-61. At the time he was one of television’s great male sex symbols.

In 1957 he was nominated for an Emmy for best continuing performance by an actor in a dramatic series for his work on “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp.”

So popular and so much a part of popular culture was O’Brian that he showed up as Earp, uncredited, in the 1959 Bob Hope Western comedy “Alias Jesse James,” as well as in the 1960 TV movie “The Secret World of Eddie Hodges”; when the actor guested on “Make Room for Daddy” in »

13 January 2016 7:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

If you’ve been even slightly attuned to pop culture in the last several decades, you’re familiar with the basic concept of Frankenstein.

From The Rocky Horror Picture Show to Penny Dreadful to countless other movies and TV shows, Mary Shelley’s classic tale — much like the titular doctor’s monster — has had its fair share of resurrections.

Fox on Wednesday night added to the pile of adaptations with Second Chance, a drama starring Rob Kazinsky (EastEnders), Tim DeKay (White Collar) and Dilshad Vadsaria (Greek). Before we get your thoughts on the series premiere, a brief recap:

Mary Shelley can rest easy in her grave now that Fox’s upcoming series Second Chance (premiering Wednesday at 9/8c) has dropped its original moniker, The Frankenstein Code.

VideosSecond Chance Trailer: New Fox Drama Sends Resurrected Cop on a Rampage

“Using a name like that just for brand recognition — when [the show] has almost nothing to do with Mary Shelley whatsoever — is disingenuous, and it’s a disservice to Mary Shelley,” star Rob Kazinsky says.

The new drama about a 75-year-old, former L.A. County Sheriff (played by guest star Philip Baker Hall) who is resurrected in the body of much younger, »
