George R.R. Martin Sets Up Skin Trade

11 October 2015 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With the all-conquering Game Of Thrones dominating his recent career, it's easy to forget that George R.R. Martin also has a long history of television work running alongside his novels and short stories. He was heavily involved with Beauty And The Beast and the '80s iteration of The Twilight Zone, and he currently has Captain Cosmos developing at HBO. Now he's setting up another new series. Cinemax are developing Skin Trade, which Martin will executive produce, based on his own novella.Nothing to do with the Duran Duran song or the Dolph Lundgren movie, Martin's Skin Trade is a World Fantasy Award-winning "werewolf noir", first published in 1988. It revolves around one Willie Flambeaux, a collections agent with a sideline in lycanthropy. The story sees him investigating a series of murders and a "dark secret" in cahoots with a private detective called Randi Wade.“I have always thought there was »

Top 5 TV: Trevor Noah's 'Daily Show,' Miley's 'SNL' Song of the Summer

5 October 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

We'd waited months, debated Twitter fouls and argued over the too-much-too-soon of it all — finally, last week, we got a taste of what a Trevor Noah-led Daily Show would actually be like. The South African comedian had the tall task of replacing Jon Stewart, who over a decade ago turned the politically savvy late-night show into a nightly ritual for many Americans (and more recently, a reliable source for "so-and-so destroys such-and-such" articles on the Internet). The first few nights mostly inspired a lot "he seems unflappable" comments — and »

Guillermo del Toro on His Love Affair With Monsters, ‘Crimson Peak’ and Being a Fanboy

29 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guillermo del Toro has always been terrified and captivated by the supernatural.

His latest big-screen endeavor, “Crimson Peak,” marks the ninth movie in which the director explores otherworldly phenomena, and incorporates a recurring element of what he calls “horrible beauty.” The opening scene of the film, which hits theaters Oct. 16, was inspired by a ghostly encounter his mother had as a child, and was undoubtedly drawn from his own fears.

Born and raised in Guadalajara by a poet mother and businessman father, del Toro had his first spectral experience at around age 12. While in a room that once belonged to his late uncle, the boy heard the older man’s voice. Though the young del Toro was already deeply interested in the supernatural, and had even told his uncle to send him a sign if there was something beyond death, he wasn’t prepared for an occurrence. “I got very scared, »

‘Under the Dome’s’ Big Twist Isn’t All That Revealing (Spoilers)

2 July 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“All Will Be Revealed” the on-air tease promised at the end of last week’s two-hour “Under the Dome” premiere, offering an incentive to brave another visit to the hermetically sealed-off town of Chester’s Mill. And while certain facts did come spilling out in rather ungainly fashion, either that ad was misleading (hardly a shock in the world of network promotion) or the words “all” and “revealed” must mean something different in TV circles.

It’s worth remembering only a few weeks have passed, in actual time, during the two-plus summers the show has been airing on CBS, seeking to wrangle Stephen King’s book into a manageable series. As with many past King productions, the mystery-shrouded premise reeled in viewers initially, only to watch those big numbers erode as the program became increasingly frustrating in its absurdity.

Until now, the producers have done a pretty fair impersonation of Lucy with the football, »

'Wayward Pines' Premiere Recap: Ominous Psychological Thriller Off to an Intriguing Start

14 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Wayward Pines, Fox's new ten-episode miniseries starring Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino and Melissa Leo introduces a character still recovering from significant emotional trauma following a high profile catastrophe whose fatalities number in the range of 600, and for which he feels devastatingly responsible. Now in search of two missing secret service agents, Ethan Burke finds himself in an inescapable "Mayberry-like" town where the inhabitants live false lives and fear punishment for breaking the town's seemingly urbane directives. 

A psychological thriller reminiscent of The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and anything written by Stephen King, Wayward Pines' menacing tone is expressed through a blue and shadow lens layered with an anxiety-inspiring score with slasher screechy undertones. Though the mood is dark, the questions are provocative enough that you'll be desperate for the next episode when the curtain falls on the first. »

Tales From The Darkside TV Series Reboot Not Moving Forward at The CW

7 May 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The CW won't be returning to the place that's "not as brightly lit", as the network has apparently passed on the reboot of George A. Romero's 1980s anthology series, Tales From the Darkside.

According to CarterMatt.com, The CW will not be moving forward with their Tales From the Darkside reboot, with the show's anthology format and lack of a showrunner reportedly two of the reasons why the network passed on the series.

Joe Hill (Horns, NOS4A2, Locke & Key) wrote and executive produced the project and Kris Lemche (Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Final Destination 3, Ginger Snaps, eXistenZ, Haven) was playing the lead role, a character named Newman who had knowledge of The Darkside and was going to appear in all (or most) episodes.

As fans will remember, the original Tales From the Darkside was a spinoff of Romero's Creepshow efforts. Like a 1980s cousin of The Twilight Zone, »

Actress Ellen Albertini Dow, best known for her scene-stealing turn as rapping grandma Rosie in Adam Sandler’s “The Wedding Singer,” has died at age 101.

First Poster Revealed for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit

21 April 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From Stephen King's chilling 1985 short story, Gramma, and its respective onscreen adaptations—Blumhouse's 2014 film, Mercy, and the 1986 episode of The New Twilight Zone—to R.L. Stine's Don't Ever Get Sick at Granny's and beyond, grandmothers have been the source of unsuspecting scares, and in September, we'll see M. Night Shyamalan’s take on what can go wrong at grandma's house with The Visit. The upcoming film from the director of Signs and The Sixth Sense is teased in a new, homemade horror poster.

A Blumhouse Productions film from Universal Pictures, M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit is slated for a September 11th release. A somewhat secretive movie that Shyamalan self-financed, wrote and directed, The Visit was filmed on and near his Pennsylvania property without any big studio involvement.

After shooting commenced, Shyamalan made a deal with Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions, which last summer signed a 10-year extension »

George R.R. Martin Developing HBO Series 'Captain Cosmos'

3 April 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin is developing a new TV series for HBO entitled Captain Cosmos. The author has an overall development deal with the network, but, for those fans worried that this will take time away from his sixth Game of Thrones book, the series isn't expected to be a big time commitment for the writer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. We reported last month that the author is skipping a number of conventions this year, including Comic-Con, to focus on his long-awaited Game of Thrones book entitled The Winds of Winter.

Michael Cassutt, a writer and executive producer on Syfy's Z Nation, is writing the pilot script. The story centers on a young sci-fi writer in 1949, in the dawn of the TV age, who spends his time creating stories that no one else would dare to tell. No further details were given regarding the plot at this time. »

4 March 2015 9:14 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real, but not as brightly lit... a darkside." This underworld can now expect its first visitor, as the reboot of George A. Romero's 1980s anthology series Tales From the Darkside, a project that was recently given a pilot order from The CW, has now cast its lead.

This character, named Newman, will be played by Lemche. Newman is "a weathered and tortured young man... the guide »

'Tales from the Darkside' Revival Coming to The CW

3 February 2015 10:52 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In development since November 2013, The CW Network has officially ordered a pilot for their Tales from the Darkside reboot. Joe Hill, the author of Horns, Locke & Key and the son of celebrated novelist Stephen King, is writing the pilot script and executive producing alongside Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

The original horror anthology series, which was created by George A. Romero, ran for four seasons on CBS between 1984 and 1988. It was later adapted for the big screen in 1990's Tales from the Darkside: The Movie. Each episode of the show told an individual short story with a twist, in the same vein as other programs such as Amazing Stories, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits and Tales from the Crypt. The show typically stayed within the horror, science fiction, and fantasy genres, but certain episodes featured more dark comedy or lighthearted themes.
