When it was announced that Gal Gadot would be following up her turn as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with a solo outing for DC's Amazonian warrior in 2017, all talk immediately turned to who would chosen as director, with Warner Bros. looking to hire a woman for the job in keeping with the characters association with female empowerment. Jennifer Kent (The Babadook) and Lesi Linka Glatter (director and co-executive producer on Homeland) were among the many considered, but Warner Bros. have announced their decision, with Michelle MacLaren, who was previously reported to be front runner, signing on the dotted line to bring Wonder Woman's adventures to the big screen. Primarily working in the realm of T.V., MacLaren has an impressive back catalogue under her belt, working on several episodes of The X-Files, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad (she was also executive »

Last week we learned that Michelle MacLaren was in talks to direct Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment. Today it has been made official! The deal is done, and I think she's a great choice! If you're not familiar with MacLaren's work, she has worked on high profile shows such as Breaking Bad, The X-Files, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones.
Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman, who will first be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There are no confirmed details on what the first Wonder Woman movie will be about, but there have been rumors that it will be set in the 1920s and be the first in a trilogy of standalone films. The report does say that the director's "deal culminates an on-and-off again dance with the Amazonian princess." So she will indeed be back to direct multiple films. »

There’s a new sheriff in town for Sons of Anarchy’s final season: Annabeth Gish’s Althea Jarry, a corrupt Charming, California, cop who’s been sleeping with the would-be enemy, Samcro gang-member Chibs (Tommy Flanagan). The X-Files and Bridge alum spoke with Vulture about her controversial Soa sex scenes, her reunion with fellow West Wing–er Jimmy Smits, and the legacy of Mystic Pizza.You seemed to make a seamless transition between FX’s The Bridge and Sons of Anarchy this season. How did that play out? It was my good luck that I was killed on The Bridge and went directly over to another fantastic, provocative FX show. They use their actors like a kind of rep company — you see Walton Goggins on Justified and Sons. They cast such amazing actors who can transform. It was so great to join the show in its last season, and in such a pivotal role. »

I recently finished watching the entire X-Files series again, and this show seriously never gets old. I always enjoy the time I spend with Mulder and Scully. I know there is a whole generation of younger people out in the world that haven’t experienced The X-Files yet. If you are one of them, the whole series is on Netflix, and I strongly suggest that you take the time to watch it. It’s better than many of the TV shows that are currently airing.
As I was rewatching the series, I kept a list of my favorite episodes. There were a lot of them, but for this list I managed to whittle it down to only twelve by focusing on what I thought were the funniest episodes. So this is my Top 12 list of favorite episodes of The X-Files that had some moments that made me laugh.

Speaking on ITV's This Morning, the actress expressed an interest in returning to the sci-fi franchise should another television series or movie be made.
Anderson said: "It's always a matter of it actually happening - and there's a lot that needs to happen between the idea and actually turning up on set, and I don't unfortunately have any control over that.
"But would I do it? I would, yes."
"I find her fascinating," she said. "I know more about her than the audience does, but I'm still interested to learn more about her."
The actress went on to address some of »
The Wonder Woman solo film starring Gal Gadot set in the 1920s with a summer 2017 release may have just gotten its director. Four websites with a very good track record (Variety, The Wrap, THR, Latino-Review) almost simultaneously reported that Michelle MacLaren is in talks, or the top contender, to direct the movie. I've never seen "unofficial" news break on so many sites at one time. MacLaren has won two Emmys and received 11 nominations. She was executive producer on Breaking Bad and The X-Files. MacLaren has directed Breaking Bad (11 episodes), The Walking Dead (3 episodes), and Game of Thrones (4 episodes). She also fits Warner Bros' goal of finding a skilled female director.

As Netflix continues to assert itself as a major television company with such acclaimed series as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, Amazon Studios is racing to catch up by ordering series it hopes will be equally well-received.

Vancouver, BC. To recap, back in October I worked the red carpet at a special 200th episode gala in Vancouver for The CW's "Supernatural." Last night, I posted my red carpet Q&As with series creator Eric Kripke, plus long-time Ep Robert Singer and slight-less-tenured Ep Adam Glass. Now it's time for my interviews with the assortment of beloved "Supernatural" supporting players who attended the 200th episode party, actors who may not have been around for the duration of the show, but have made their marks in different ways. That certainly includes Misha Collins, whose Castiel didn't arrive until the fourth "Supernatural" season, but has played a key role in the move to shift the drama from its monster-of-the-week format to the higher Heaven-and-Hell stakes that have characterized its later years. Showing up a season later was Crossroads demon Crowley, played by Mark Sheppard. Thanks to "Supernatural," "Doctor Who," "Battlestar Galactica" and "The X Files, »

The Juilliard School New York Some students call it "Jailyard," but only 6.7 percent of applicants are admitted (with 90 percent receiving scholarships covering two-thirds of tuition).

Long before Jack Bauer raced against the clock to save the country in “24,” and CIA operations officer Carrie Mathison ever met soldier-turned-terrorist Nicholas Brody in “Homeland,” writer-director Alex Gansa — who now has two primetime Emmys to his credit — was banging his head against the wall of his TriStar office, trying to come up with an idea, any idea, for a decent TV show.
What was your life like when you first appeared in Variety?
Howard (Gordon) and I had just come off “Beauty and the Beast,” and we had written a pilot for Witt Thomas, which we shot and was pretty much a disaster. We were very young — we were in our mid-20s — and it all just came to us too quickly at the beginning. We made all the routine mistakes you could possibly make. And so we were going to get back in the development game, hopefully having »

“As You Wish.” Anyone who grew up during the 1980’s should immediately recognize those three iconic words from Rob Reiner’s timeless classic The Princess Bride and now, they’re also the title of a new memoir from the film’s star, Cary Elwes, which has been tearing it up on the New York Times’ bestseller list since it was released a few weeks ago.
Elwes has more to celebrate these days too; the long-time actor who has appeared in a variety of projects like Glory, Hot Shots!, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Twister, Dracula, Kiss the Girls, The X-Files, Shadow of the Vampire and Liar Liar, has also been spending some time recently reminiscing about his role as Doctor Gordon in honor of Lionsgate’s recent re-release of James Wan’s Saw.
Elwes, busy promoting the release of his book As You Wish, recently chatted with Daily Dead briefly »

Karen Hassan's popular Hollyoaks character Lynsey Nolan may have met a tragic end in summer 2012, but TV and film fans haven't seen the last of the actress as she has a number of new projects being released in the coming months.
The former soap star will be seen reprising her role as Annie Brawley in series two of The Fall later this month, while she has also recently been filming a brand new part in historical drama Vikings for the History Channel.
Digital Spy recently caught up with Karen for a chat about her new jobs, her future plans and her memories of playing Lynsey.
How would you sum up life after Hollyoaks?
"Leaving Hollyoaks is definitely a transition because you're moving on from a regular job where you're working in the same place every day and you have security. Stepping out of the show is a brave move, »
Here at Thn we couldn’t be happier that the BFI is currently celebrating all things Sf with a plethora of events across the UK. With over 1000 screenings of classic film and TV at 200 plus locations, there’s a veritable constellation of sparkly gems for any Sf aficionado to glut themselves with.
Cinema and science fiction have always been close bedfellows—and it’s no surprise really. As far back as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, weird and wonderful ideas about science, humanity, and the universe were captivating readers. And of course, we all know what a godsend Shelley’s creature was to the silver screen.
But what’s the magic ingredient which makes Sf so enduring? You only have to cast your eyes down cinema or TV listings to see the number of features with a speculative element. The X-men franchise, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, »
