‘Trans-Siberian Express’ Movie in the Works Based on Warren Adler Novel (Exclusive)

Grey Eagle Films has launched development on a movie version of Warren Adler’s thriller novel “Trans-Siberian Express,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The story — set during the height of the Cold War — follows an American cancer specialist traveling to Moscow to help prolong the life of the Soviet Politburo Chief. The doctor accidentally discovers a diabolical plan to launch a nuclear strike against China and finds himself dispatched aboard the legendary Trans-Siberian Express from Moscow to Vladivostok — and unable to alert the U.S. of China’s imminent destruction.

“With all the current news and media attention on tension surrounding U.S.-Russian-Chinese relations, this story of raw human connection set within a political landscape resonates in a particularly timely way,” said Grey Eagle Films CEO Jonathan R. Adler.

Adler is best known for the novel “The War of the Roses.” Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas, and Danny DeVito starred in the 1989 movie adaptation.

Review: Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO with 'Divorce'

Review: Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO with 'Divorce'
For decades, the TV business operated under the mistaken belief that audiences wouldn't watch shows about unlikable characters. What the last 20-odd years of television has proved, however, is that viewers are just fine with unlikable characters — provided the shows understand that they're unlikable. Many of the best comedies of this period — from Seinfeld to Veep, Curb Your Enthusiasm to It's Always in Philadelphia, Arrested Development to BoJack Horseman — understand from the jump that they're about fundamentally terrible individuals. Even if the audience doesn't catch on at first, the people making the shows understand and embrace the nastiness and stupidity of it all, and that only makes the comedy more effective. On the flip side, some of the lamest and most insufferable comedies of recent vintage — say, Mixology or Happyish — don't seem to recognize how irritating their main characters are, which only doubles down on other creative problems. It's bad

Fall TV Preview: The 17 Most Anticipated Comedies of 2016
“Mary + Jane”

September 5 on MTV

What Is It? From the writer/directors behind the cult favorite “Josie and the Pussycats” adaptation, this series follows two “ganjapeneurs” who run a weed delivery service in Los Angeles.

I’ll Like It If I Like… The “Broad City” influence is pretty clear, as the show is focused on the tight friendship between Jordan (Scout Durwood) and Paige (Jessica Rothe) and their stoner antics.

Why Should I Care? Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont’s unique approach to satirizing La hipster culture really help this show stand out from the pack of other female-led comedies, while also promising a more surreal touch. Durwood and Rothe also make for an enjoyable pairing. For fans of the pot comedy genre, it’s an easy sell.

Sarah Jessica Parker Digs Into ‘Divorce,’ HBO’s Next Great Drama (That’s Also a Comedy)

Sarah Jessica Parker Digs Into ‘Divorce,’ HBO’s Next Great Drama (That’s Also a Comedy)
Divorce is always thought of as this solitary endeavor, but what we discovered was to go through a divorce, you need the other person a lot. The process is so brutal and it can be made better by this other person — or not.”

Sarah Jessica Parker’s explanation of “Divorce,” HBO’s upcoming half-hour series from “Catastrophe” creator Sharon Horgan, doesn’t exactly make it sound like a laugh riot. Despite “Divorce” being Parker’s first series at HBO since the Emmy-winning comedy “Sex and the City” and Horgan’s established work as a top-tier comedy writer, the series sounds far deeper than even Carrie Bradshaw’s most challenging moments.

During the half-hour panel discussion at HBO’s Television Critics Association press day on Saturday, Parker, Horgan, co-star Thomas Haden Church and executive producer Paul Simms certainly dug into some pretty scary territory — especially for anyone who’s ever been married.

TCA Summer Press Tour Day 3 Quotes: Howard Dean's Scream, Josh Radnor's Nails and Joshua Bell's Violin
The first PBS day of the Television Critics Association press tour got a dose of adrenaline from the documentary about Hamilton, but Friday's (July 29) second day was driven by several specials about the upcoming election, documentaries about contemporary race relations and gun violence and some Shakespeare history. Even the panel for the second season of the drama Mercy Street included talk of war, slavery and medical misadventures. A dark and sometimes darkly funny selection of Day 3 highlight quotes include: *** Discussing the muck and mud of the exterior sets for The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses,

Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs. Kramer: the On-Set Drama Behind the Landmark Oscar-Winning Film
Actors have difficult moments making films all the time, but news that Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman feuded on the set of Kramer vs. Kramer is a far bigger deal. We're talking about two of the most respected actors of their generations, with 26 Oscar nominations between them (her: 19; him: 7). When you're dealing with two Hollywood and Broadway heavyweights of that caliber, it sounds like a real-life clash of the titans. But it's important to remember that in 1978, it just wasn't that way.

Tense 'House of Cards' Season 4 Trailer Teases Frank vs Claire Horror

In the battle of President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and First Lady Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) the clear winner is the "House of Cards" audience.

Have you seen the 1989 movie "The War of the Roses"? Based on the official "House of Cards" Season 4 trailer, it looks like a more strategic, violent, and high-stakes version is headed our way this season.

Season 3 ended with Claire finally walking out on Frank, and oh man is he pissed. The music and imagery in the trailer are so tense this could easily be a horror film.

Claire: "I saw a future. Our future."

Frank: "We had a future until you started destroying it."

Yep, Mom and Dad are fighting -- and it's awesome! They don't call this show "House of Cards" for nothing. It took three seasons for the Underwoods to get to the White House and now the house is starting to collapse from greed,

Michael Douglas Just Getting Started with Career Achievement Honor

Michael Douglas Just Getting Started with Career Achievement Honor
Following in the footsteps of such previous career achievement honorees as Robert De Niro, Robert Redford, Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon and Sharon Stone, Michael Douglas is being recognized “for the longevity of his career, the quality of his achievements, and his overall striving for excellence,” says Aarp’s Robert Love. “He’s also a great activist and well-known as an all-around good guy.”

Ironically, in a career spanning more than 50 years, the actor-producer and Oscar winner has enjoyed his biggest successes embodying bad guys, anti-heroes and jerks. And even a short list of his greatest hits — “Wall Street,” for which he won the lead actor Oscar, “Fatal Attraction,” “Basic Instinct,” “The War of the Roses” and “Disclosure” — reveals just how good he’s been at it.

The actor, who’s always had a gift for playing ethically challenged and morally ambiguous characters, fully inhabited the reptilian Gordon Gekko — his most iconic role,
