BBC drama boss to join Jj Abrams Bad Robot

5 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

BBC drama controller Ben Stephenson is to join Jj Abrams indie Bad Robot to lead its television division.

Screen’s sister publication Broadcast revealed in February that Stephenson was in talks with the Los Angeles-based company.

His move ends a 10-year association with the BBC.

A date for his departure is yet to be confirmed, although he is expected to relocate to California at some point later this year. A hunt for his successor will begin immediately.

Stephenson said he was ready for a new challenge and described Star Wars director Abrams as “one of the world’s greatest writers, directors and producers”.

He added: “The BBC is a remarkable institution - there just isn’t a more creative, stimulating organisation to work for in the UK. Whilst it’s a massive wrench to leave, I cannot wait to begin a new adventure in La with Jj.”

Abrams said: “His love of great TV, his passion »

Batman V Superman: Ranking The Character Designs From Worst To Best

5 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’s release is a little under a year away, but Zack Snyder’s movie is already getting treated to a similar level of feverous speculation as 2015’s biggest hitters. And, even with the start of a third Star Wars trilogy and a sequel to the third biggest movie of all time on the near horizon, it’s really not hard to see why people are getting excited over seeing Ben Affleck get the s**t beaten out of him by Henry Cavill.

Of course, Dawn Of Justice isn’t only seeing DC’s two big hitters duking it out on the big screen for the first time, but also laying the foundations for Warner Bros. attempt to ape Marvel at the shared universe game. On top of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel (as well as their expansive supporting »

Harrison Ford has been released from hospital.

The Star Wars actor was injured in a small plane crash in Los Angeles at the beginning of March.

According to People, the actor has been spotted driving near his home in recent days.

He was piloting a vintage fighter plane that crashed into a Venice, CA golf course on March 5.

The 72-year-old was said to be in "moderate condition" outside of the plane when emergency services arrived. He was "alert, conscious and breathing" when transferred to hospital.

Stars sent their well wishes to the actor after news of the crash broke.

Ford made headlines last year when he sustained an injury on set. Production was temporarily halted while he underwent leg surgery, but he returned to work weeks later. »

Akiva Goldsman Overseeing More Transformers Films

29 March 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since Marvel (and later Disney) struck success with their cinematic universe, all the other studios have been trying to leap on that bandwagon, with Sony spinning a Spider-Man web, Universal planning a monster-verse and the Mouse House itself crafting a galaxy of Star Wars movies. The latest arrival to the multi-film party is Paramount, which has Akiva Goldsman joining the team to oversee more Transformers films. According to Deadline, he’ll work with Transformers stalwarts Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura on setting up a writer’s room-style process that will hire scriptwriters to start developing potential new sequels and, because this is a thing that has to happen apparently these days, spin-offs. Bumblebee: Origins, anyone?It’s hardly surprising that Paramount would want to do this – for all their fluctuating quality levels, the Transformers franchise has been a robust box-office performer for the studio, with even last »

Star Trek Could be Returning to Television

28 March 2015 7:13 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Latino Review says that CBS is planning to bring Star Trek back to TV. Director Bryan Singer has been suggested as a possible executive producer for the project through his Bad Hat Harry Productions.

It’s been 50 years since the first Star Trek pilot, called “The Cage”, was produced. Next year will be the official 50th anniversary of Star Trek’s network debut as a weekly series. To celebrate this auspicious anniversary, the possibility of a new Star Trek TV series is being seriously considered.

There have been five Trek shows on the small screen (not counting the animated series). The most recent Trek spin-off series, Star Trek: Enterprise, went off the air in 2005. Since then, fans have never stopped asking for a new entry in the Star Trek tele-verse. Despite the new films by Jj Abrams, which have gotten mixed reactions from old-time Trek fans, the call for another spin-off has not stopped. »

10 Zombie Films You Should Die Before You See

28 March 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It was a running joke among Italian exploitation filmmakers in the 70s and 80s that if you wanted to know what your next picture was going to be, you only had to look at Hollywood’s box office. Just as every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so every Hollywood blockbuster has a sleazy and inexpensive mockbuster.

The Exorcist spawned House of Exorcism, Jaws begat Tentacles and Star Wars found its opposite number in Starcrash, but it was Dawn of the Dead’s success that birthed some of the liveliest, most outlandish trash that ever met a projector bulb. Avoiding Dawn’s slapstick elements, these knock-offs played it straight and went for the jugular, but their shoestring budgets, bad acting and ridiculous narratives often saw them enter the realm of high camp, and the zombie genre went into a tailspin.

‘Star Trek 3′ Reflects ‘Spirit of the TV Show,’ Simon Pegg Says

28 March 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rejoice, Trekkies! The latest sequel to the rebooted “Star Trek” franchise will capture the spirit of the original TV show.

Co-writer and star Simon Pegg told Comic Book Resources that “Star Trek 3,” whose script was recently completely overhauled, will have more familiar notes than the previous two films.

“I think we just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show,” Pegg told the site.

Pegg, who will return to play engineering chief Scotty, also said that the new film will be infused with the same optimism and sense of adventure that characterized the original stories.

“And it’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know, where no man has gone before — where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation,” he said. “But yeah, that’s the mood at the moment. »

Transformers Getting Lots More Sequels and Spin-Offs

28 March 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Despite not being loved by critics, the "Transformers" franchise has been very lucrative, with the last two films grossing over $1 billion worldwide each. This is why Paramount Pictures has decided to expand the universe to include a bunch more sequels and spin-offs. Deadline is reporting that the studio hired Akiva Goldsman to work with director Michael Bay, executive producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a "writer's room" to come up with ideas for future films. Even though Goldsman is an Oscar-winning writer of "A Beautiful Mind" and many other films, it seems that he won't actually write any scripts. Instead, he will take on an oversight role to select writers and guide the movies they'll write. This strategy has become more and more common in Hollywood. 20th Century Fox has done this for the next three "Avatar" films, and Disney has done this for its superhero »

‘Transformers’ – The Future Revealed

28 March 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Following four epic instalments from director Michael Bay, you’d think Paramount Pictures would be exhausted over the Transformers movie franchise. Yet it seems the studio are keener than ever to press ahead with the announcement of a strategy for the future.

Not only is Bay eyeing a fifth film (after he’s finished latest effort 13 Hours) but the studio has brought in screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to oversee a hub of scribblers – the thinking behind this “writers’ room” being to develop further sequels and spin-offs, creating a parallel with other lucrative multi-chapter series, notably Star Wars.

The brand’s key talents – Bay, Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura – are on hand to assist Goldsman with the task of keeping this saga of reconfigured robots fresh. Age Of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg is expected to return, having previously signed a contract for two more chunks of mechanized mayhem.

Masi Oka's Hiro Nakamura will return for Heroes: Reborn

27 March 2015 5:14 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Av Club reports that Masi Oka will reprise his fan-favourite role of Hiro Nakamura for this year's Heroes: Reborn. The time-travelling, teleporting geek Hiro played a key role throughout all four seasons of Heroes' original run from 2006 to 2010, so it's only fitting that he should return for the show's upcoming 13-episode limited-run series revival.

The dynamic between Hiro and his (mostly non-superpowered) best friend Ando Masahashi (James Kyson Lee) was hilarious, lending the show a much-needed humorous side to balance out the gripping arc-based storytelling drama. Not only that, but their friendship also provided some added emotional resonance. So hopefully James Kyson Lee will also return to complete the double act.

Hiro's relationships with some of the other characters also made for some brilliant storylines. For instance, there's his awkward, doomed romance with the adorable waitress Charlene 'Charlie' Andrews (Jayma Mays), continued in the amazing spin-off novel »
