Quantum Leap Movie Script Has Been Written
The 1980s and 1990s are more popular than ever, so it isn't terribly surprising to learn that an iconic series from that era, Quantum Leap, may get a movie reboot. Series creator Donald Bellisario revealed during a Quantum Leap reunion panel at L.A. Comic-Con with series star Scott Bakula, that he has written a script for a Quantum Leap movie that would bring back original series stars Bakula as Dr. Samuel Beckett and Dean Stockwell as Admiral Al Calavicci. Here's what Donald Bellisario had to say in a statement.

"I just finished writing a Quantum Leap feature. I don't know what's going to happen with it, but I did write it. I write things exactly the same way. I just start writing and I let them take me wherever it's going to take me. I'm entertained the same way the audience is. So I just put Scott and Dean [Stockwell] in my head,

‘Stranger Things’: 19 Totally ‘80s Pop Culture References That Should Be in Season 2
Stranger Things 2” returns just in time for Halloween, both in the real world and in the eerie town of Hawkins, Indiana conceived in the nostalgic minds of The Duffer Brothers. The action picks up three days before Halloween 1984, which means that the year will soon be coming to a close. For those who may not have been alive or perhaps have a shaky memory of the time, 1984 was a big year for memorable events and in pop culture.

The first season reveled in bringing the time period alive in all of its totally ‘80s glory, from Dungeons & Dragons gaming sessions and Eggo waffles to homages to “E.T.,” “The Shining,” and “Rambo.” Hell, even star Winona Ryder’s presence is a timely tribute since she made her early career in such iconic ‘80s films as “Lucas,” “Beetlejuice,” and “Heathers.”

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Summer Phoenix

Summer Phoenix is an American actress that is just one of the many Phoenix children, all of who have been or are still involved in acting to this day. She is the sister of the ill-fated River Phoenix and the current star Joaquin Phoenix. Her film credits are fairly extensive and start back as far as 1984 when she was featured in the film Airwolf. Since then she’s done a fair amount of movies and even become musically inclined over the years. She’s been seen as a talented and promising actress but has mostly stuck to roles that are minor

The undersea horror movies of the late 1980s

Ryan Lambie Jun 2, 2017

Inspired by James Cameron's The Abyss, the late 80s brought with it a wave of brilliantly cheesy undersea horrors, Ryan writes...

Hollywood studios occasionally have an uncanny knack of announcing almost identical film projects at the same time. In the 1980s, we had rival police dog movies K-9 and Turner And Hooch. The 90s saw the release of rival eruption movies (Dante's Peak and Volcano), opposing killer space rock pictures (Deep Impact and Armageddon) and duelling insect comedies (Antz and A Bug's Life). We provided a detailed run-down on these rival movies back in 2015.

Around the year 1989, meanwhile, film producers briefly fell in love with a curiously specific genre: undersea sci-fi horror. Between January 1989 and the spring of 1990, no fewer than five films all came out with a similar theme - DeepStar Six was first, followed by Leviathan, Lords Of The Deep,

5 Cult TV Shows That Deserve A Reboot

Ben Robins with 5 cult TV shows that deserve a reboot…

Despite something of a critical bollocking, Dwayne Johnson’s tongue-in-cheek Baywatch reboot is set to take on a huge portion of the summer box office takings. And considering that it’s very much following in the footsteps of similar cult TV reboot success stories like 21 Jump Street, it proves that there’s definitely a market for all those other giants of the small screen, quietly waiting in the wings, ready to take that final big leap into blockbuster territory. In fact, there’s so many of these already in active development, that this feature got more and more difficult to research as it went along, with all of the best ideas seemingly already snatched up.

So, from that other well-known Hasselhoff project, to some straight-up risky bids, here’s a collection of potential big money reboots that we could see

Review: 'The Americans' just closed its best, darkest season yet

  • Hitfix
A review of tonight's The Americans season finale coming up just as soon as I watch the Super Bowl without you... "I think it's time." -Gabriel As Gabriel notes to Philip and Elizabeth in a scene that threatens to upend all of our expectations for the series' final two seasons, their assignment to America was never intended to be a permanent one. Plans were already underway to have William come home after delivering the Lassa virus to the Centre, and once he gets captured by the FBI, the risk to the Jennings family becomes so great that it makes more sense to send them all home — even if that "home" would be a foreign concept in every way to Paige and Henry — than to keep them in the field and risk their capture. With two seasons to go — and with Philip's son Mischa on his way to America to search

Bryan Cranston Shares Hilarious Story of How He Met His Wife - While Holding Her Captive on TV's Airwolf
When Bryan Cranston met his wife Robin Dearden, it wasn't exactly love at first sight - considering the fact the he was holding her hostage. In fact, their first encounter with each other was a far cry from your typical love story. Cranston and Dearden worked together on the set of the CBS series Airwolf in 1986. Cranston was guest-starring as a jilted lover who hijacks a sorority reunion cruise, and Dearden played one of the trapped sorority sisters.

Martin Milner, Star of ‘Adam-12,’ ‘Route 66,’ Dies at 83
Martin Milner, who starred on TV on “Adam-12” with Kent McCord and, earlier, on “Route 66” with George Maharis, died Sunday night, Diana Downing, a representative for his fan page, confirmed. He was 83.

Milner was also known for his roles as a jazz guitarist in the brilliant 1957 film “Sweet Smell of Success” and in the 1967 camp classic “Valley of the Dolls.”

Milner began acting in movies while a teen, after his father got him an agent, first appearing in the 1947 classic “Life With Father.” The film starred William Powell and Irene Dunne, and thus Milner, along with his co-star Elizabeth Taylor, bridged the generations in Hollywood between the golden age and contemporary era.

He appeared as Officer Pete Molloy alongside Kent McCord’s Officer Jim Reed in NBC’s “Adam-12” from 1968-75. Molloy was the seasoned, savvy veteran bringing along Reed who was, at first, a rookie.

10 things we learned about Godzilla from Gareth Edwards

  • Den of Geek
Top 10 Ryan Lambie 4 Mar 2014 - 05:53

Last week, director Gareth Edwards spoke about his forthcoming Godzilla movie in a lengthy Q&A. Here's what we've learned...

Nb: While the below is spoiler-free, do avoid reading further if you’d prefer to see the final film absolutely cold.

Showing off 20 minutes of your forthcoming summer movie before it's even finished could, in theory, be a risky move. Yet Warner Bros and Legendary clearly have confidence in director Gareth Edwards' forthcoming Godzilla, and when we'd finished seeing some snippets of footage from his monster movie reboot, we were also confident that the full film will be worthy of the creature's status as cinema's King of the Monsters.

With our excitement suitably piqued by the footage (and you can read our spoiler-free thoughts on that here), Edwards took to the stage with presenter Edith Bowman to talk about Godzilla in an illuminating Q&A.

Godzilla Roars Back to Life on Screen – Footage Preview Report & Q&A With Director Gareth Edwards

  • HeyUGuys
As the cinematic calendar gears up for the (now extended) summer season of Hollywood box office big-hitters, there’s one film on the way which has already caught the collective enthusiasm of genre fans. Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are bringing a new version of the famed Japanese fable Godzilla to the big screen in May, under the direction of young UK-born talent, Gareth Edwards.

Yesterday we joined a packed and very excited screening room at The Mayfair to view footage from the film, with Edwards himself in attendance. This is the first Hollywood feature for the director, following his hugely-praised sci-fi/social commentary infused 2010 debut, Monsters. Packing the kind of budget which would have paid for that prior production several thousand times over,

Godzilla is a huge leap for Edwards, although judging by his fun and good-natured demeanour, it’s clear he wasn’t overly fazed by the experience.

We’ve Just Seen Some Of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla: Here’s Our Reaction

Gareth EdwardsGodzilla has been dangled and teased before us for a couple of years now. At Comic-Con 2012, Edwards presented a mood piece featuring some CGI-heavy footage, mainly featuring the battered remains of a nameless city with massive holes in buildings, debris everywhere, and a shadow of a seemingly dark creature behind a clouded misty haze. The footage was not screened anywhere else, but had the crowds in that exhibition hall, on that particular hot summer’s day in southern California, literally jumping for joy with the expectation of something magnificent. Then, a year later in the very same hall, to probably, the very same audience at the same event in San Diego, we caught glimpse of a lot more; Edwards a little more comforatble, and now smiling and teasing us again with actually footage from a film that was nearing wrap on a lengthy shooting schedule. It was coming together,

Ranking the TV shows of Jj Abrams

  • Den of Geek
Feature Rob Kemp 15 Nov 2013 - 07:00

With Almost Human arriving soon, Rob compares the merits of ten Jj Abrams-produced TV shows, from Lost, to Alias, Revolution, and more...

Warning: contains spoilers for Revolution, and Lost.

Most would agree, Jj Abrams has had a successful career which has gone from strength to strength. Undoubtedly, Star Wars now offers an opportunity for him to reach a creative zenith, but represents also his largest risk. His stylistic choices may not be to everyone’s tastes and he himself admits that there are elements over which he has an obsession (lens flares & secrecy) but these are still a matter of personal taste (I’m ambivalent over the former, and truly appreciate the latter). All that aside, outside his burgeoning film directing career, as an executive producer Abrams has been responsible for an incredible amount of television in a very small space of time.
