1 hour ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Tony Jordan teams up with Jimmy Akingbola and Fraser Ayres to set up TriForce, a production company promoting diversity in television

Life on Mars and EastEnders writer Tony Jordan has teamed up with actors Jimmy Akingbola and Fraser Ayres to help set up a new production company aimed at promoting diversity on television and behind the camera.

After Lenny Henry’s call a year ago for new legislation to reverse the “appalling” proportion of black and Asian people in the creative industries, broadcasters have come up with plans to improve the situation, such as quotas and training programmes.

The issue with diversity in the industry is not a lack of talent, just a lack of avenues for that talent to be reached

First look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as X-Men: Apocalypse's Nightcrawler

8 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

X-Men: Apocalypse is over a year from landing in theatres, but we’re getting our first tease of Kodi Smit-McPheeas the young Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler.

Nightcrawler was first portrayed on big screens by Alan Cumming in the original X-Men series.  Now, Smit-McPhee is taking on the challenge of playing the mutant with teleportation abilities, superhuman agility, and adhesive hands and feet.  In the comics, Nightcrawler is a practical joker with pointed ears and a tail.  We're expecting much of the same character trait's in Bryan Singer's movie.

The Nightcrawler sneak peek comes on the heels of some X-Men: Apocalypse casting news earlier this month.  It was announced that Olivia Munn (Mortdecai) and Ben Hardy (“Eastenders”) were joining the cast as Psylocke and Angel.

All your favourite mutants are also back for another ride, including James McAvoy, Micahel Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Peters, and Nicholas Hoult, with Oscar Isaac playing Apocalypse. »

The first trailer has arrived for London Road, the film adaptation of the hit musical of the same name, you can check it out below…

Based on the National Theatre’s highly acclaimed verbatim musical directed by Rufus Norris, which he now directs as a feature film, London Road documents an incident from 2006, when the town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women.
