Is Suits Romance Right or Wrong? Did Bachelorette Rejects Exist Before? Are Emmy Ballots Pre-Filled? And More Qs!

14 July 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including American Ninja Warrior, The Bachelorette, Suits and Zoo!

1 | Is it kind of a bummer that Killjoys basically “recast” Defiance‘s Stephanie Leonidas in the role of Clara? (Or can the Hackmod easily get her “old” face back?)

2 | What hallucinogenics were circulating at CBS that someone pitched (and another someone signed off on) “Giant Candy Crush meets obstacle course meets Big Brother/Survivor?”

Practical-ly Perfect: Celebrating the Admirably Audacious Effects in Sam Raimi’s Darkman (1990)

1 June 2017 4:21 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Before tackling the Spider-Man trilogy, Master of Horror Sam Raimi gave the world his own unique brand of superhero storytelling with his 1990 neo-noir/horror/romance mash-up, Darkman, which paid homage to the larger-than-life characters and worlds of comic properties like Dick Tracy and Batman, as well as the tortured titular character in The Phantom of the Opera. A wildly hyperkinetic tale of revenge and loss, Darkman may not be Raimi’s most polished work, but I truly feel that given where he was at that time in his career, and the budget he had to play with, Darkman is easily one of Raimi’s most ambitious efforts (certainly right up there with the first two Evil Dead films).

One of my favorite aspects to Darkman (besides Larry Drake as the absolutely despicable crime boss Durant) has always been the film’s incredible effects, which were designed and created by Tony Gardner of Alterian, »

Emmy Contenders Like Alfre Woodard, Kristen Bell Pull Double Duty in Guest Spots

1 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

it’s becoming more common to see actors pulling double-duty on television; particularly with the ever-growing list of actors appearing in guest spots. Some of those actors could even find themselves eligible for Emmy recognition in more than one category.

For actors enjoying a regular role on television, recognition in the guest category can be an extra bonus. Oscar nominee and four-time Emmy winner Alfre Woodard made an exciting villain on “Luke Cage,” but still found time to appear in two episodes of “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” both for Netflix. As for finding time to play the two roles, she says the shooting dates were “close enough to be, ‘Yikes,’ but I didn’t have to balance Mariah Dillard’s dastardly deeds and the hyper-vigilant grammarian Aunt Josephine in the same shooting schedule.” She then points to her lengthy theater background, noting: “But we’ve all done repertory!”

The Mystery of Why Top TV Producers Shonda Rhimes, Greg Berlanti and Chuck Lorre Haven’t Won an Emmy

30 May 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Shonda Rhimes, Chuck Lorre and Greg Berlanti are easily the most powerful producers on TV. Yet none of them have ever won a Primetime Emmy.

Ten years ago, that might not have been the case. But Rhimes, Lorre and Berlanti produce populist fare for (mostly) broadcast networks, at a time when those shows are no longer on the Emmy radar.

In 2016, the broadcasters were shut out of the top Emmy categories for the first time in the award’s history. Never before had the top drama, comedy and actor and actress prizes gone exclusively to cable and streaming services.

But last year’s results were the culmination of a trend that began when “The Sopranos” star Edie Falco won the Emmy in 1999 for Outstanding Drama actress. By 2001, HBO had grabbed the first outstanding series prize for a cable series (“Sex and the City”), as well as both top drama acting »

Love Actually Burning Q: Where Was Billy Mack in Red Nose Day Update?

26 May 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Love Actually isn’t Love Actually without its hedonistic, aging rock star Billy Mack. But Bill Nighy’s outspoken character was nowhere to be seen during the movie’s mini-sequel, which aired as part of NBC’s Red Nose Day fundraising special Thursday. 

Many members of the movie’s cast — including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Liam Neeson, Rowan Atkinson and Colin Firth — took part in the project, which provided a “Where are they now?” look at characters from the popular romantic comedy while highlighting the importance of Red Nose Day, a charity that provides various forms of help to needy kids. »

Image Nation Abu Dhabi Pacts With U.S. Producers Roy Lee, Steven Schneider

16 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Prominent Middle Eastern production company Image Nation Abu Dhabi has forged a three-year pact with veteran Hollywood genre movie producers Roy Lee (“The Ring”) and Steven Schneider (“Paranormal Activity”) to jointly produce a slate of high-concept, low-budget horror films destined for the international market.

Though specifics on the projects are being kept under wraps, the plan is to make at least one English-language movie with franchise potential per year, fully financed by Image Nation, according to a statement.

Directors are being decided. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The deal reunites Schneider with Image Nation after their recent collaboration on Emirati director Ali F. Mustafa’s “The Worthy,” a dystopian Arabic-language thriller set for global release via Netflix this month.

Besides “The Ring” and “Paranormal Activity,” Lee and Schneider (pictured – Schneider left, Lee right) each have a long track record churning out other hit horror franchises, including “The Grudge, »

American Gods Renewed For Second Season

12 May 2017 8:14 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

For those who aren’t completely familiar with the television calendar, we are now entering the culling. As the networks get ready for their Upfronts, it becomes time to bring the hammer down on the shows that won’t be returning, which means it is obviously also time to announce renewals.

In the midst of a ton of shows getting killed off over the last few days, Starz has renewed American Gods after the show has barely begun airing, which isn’t that unusual these days, but is surely a great relief to a lot of fans. In the release, Starz announced that the show has managed more than 5 million multiplatform viewers, and that number is growing. That’s an impressive number for a truly bonkers show on a cable network.

Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming for Starz, said, “Bryan Fuller, Michael Green and Neil Gaiman have evolved the art form of television narratively, »

Starz Renews American Gods for a Second Season

11 May 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The conflict between Old Gods and New Gods will continue to be explored on screen, as Starz has officially renewed American Gods (based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name) for a second season.

Starz announced the season 2 news on Twitter. No other details are known at this time, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on further developments. The eight-episode first season of American Gods will conclude on June 18th.

From the Press Release: "“American Gods” posits a different kind of war brewing—one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to »

7 Things You Don’t Know About ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ As Told by Quentin Tarantino and the Cast

28 April 2017 9:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr. Blonde, Mr. Pink, Mr. Brown: They all reunited for the 25th anniversary retrospective screening of “Reservoir Dogs” at the Tribeca Film Festival April 28. Cast members Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi and writer-director-actor Quentin Tarantino all got together to reminisce after the 1992 movie screened to a packed house at the Beacon Theater. Here are seven fun facts they revealed.

1. Tom Waits auditioned.

Tarantino let this tidbit slip as he discussed the casting process. “We had the casting director from ‘L.A. Law,'” the director recalled. “A lot of really wild people came in and read the parts. Tom Waits came in and read. I had Tom Waits read the Madonna speech, just so I could hear Tom Waits say those lines. And actually, other than Harvey, he gave me one of the first profound compliments on the script. No one had ever »

Gina Rodriguez Lines Up “Carmen Sandiego” & Two Potential Women-Directed Films

17 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Gina Rodriguez in “Jane the Virgin

Where in the world is Gina Rodriguez? Everywhere. Per The Tracking Board, the “Jane the Virgin” star will voice the titular character in Netflix’s animated series “Carmen Sandiego.” She is also in talks to lead two movies: Sony’s Catherine Hardwicke-directed “Miss Bala” and 20th Century Fox’s Ryan Case-helmed “Fire Me.”

“Carmen Sandiego” is a new iteration of the beloved ’90s video game “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?” and the subsequent TV series starring Lynne Thigpen (“L.A. Law,” “Homicide”). The Tracking Board writes that Netflix has given a 20-episode order to the series about the globetrotting thief, which “aims to be as educational as it is entertaining.”

As for the film negotiations, Rodriguez might have to choose between “Miss Bala” and “Fire Me,” as the projects are currently scheduled to film around the same time. “Sony sees ‘Miss Bala’ as a potential franchise starter, which could give it an edge,” the source details.

As previously reported, Hardwicke’s “Miss Bala” is a remake of Gerardo Naranjo’s 2011 drama about a kidnapped beauty pageant contestant. Rodriguez would play Gloria Meyer, “who finds herself a pawn, after her friend Suzu goes missing in Tijuana, in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA and a charismatic young crime boss.”

Fire Me” is a “9 to 5”-esque comedy based on a Libby Malin novel. Case (“Modern Family,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) will direct and Red Hour Films is producing. According to the book’s synopsis, “Fire Me” revolves around Anne Wyatt. “[She] goes to work one day determined to resign. But that’s the day her boss announces someone’s getting laid off (and with a generous severance package). Now Anne has one day to ruin her career.”

“Carmen Sandiego” and the two potential movies are just the tip of the iceberg for Rodriguez. The Golden Globe winner has a bunch of other projects in the works, such as executive producing a bullying drama for Hulu. Based on Meg Medina’s Ya book “Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass,” the series “tells the story of a diverse, vibrant Brooklyn community confronting bullying, racial tensions, and questions of identity.”

Also on Rodriguez’s docket are a multi-year deal between CBS and her I Can and I Will Productions banner, a book about her father’s advice, and a potential adaptation of the German series “Dr. Illegal.” Rodriguez’s upcoming films include romantic comedy “Sharon 1.2.3.,” sci-fi thriller “Annihilation,” and animated movies “Ferdinand,” and “The Star.”

Gina Rodriguez Lines Up “Carmen Sandiego” & Two Potential Women-Directed Films was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
