Will Stephen King’s It Be Two Movies Or Not? Plus, Rating Details

9 February 2017 12:02 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Things have been pretty darn confusing over the Stephen King front. In general, the man’s novels tend to be long — often breaking one thousand pages in length. As such, when it comes adapting, many fans don’t see the standard film as the ideal medium in which to tell the stories. There’s a reason why The Stand was made as a mini-series, and why The Dark Tower is set to spread across both TV and film — there’s no other way to do it. But what about King’s other magnum opus? We’re talking about his beloved horror novel It, which follows a small town’s dealing with a psychotic supernatural killer named Pennywise.

The book isn’t quite your traditional story when it comes to it’s structure. Told over the course of decades, it follows a group of friends named the losers in their fight against this shapeshifting baddie. »

Films that led to other films being cancelled

Had Tomorrowland been a hit, we might have had a Tron sequel. We look at movies whose fate had a knock-on effect on other films...

You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback.  In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.

The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »

In memoriam: Miguel Ferrer

20 January 2017 1:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 20, 2017

We're sad to report that American actor Miguel Ferrer has died at the age of 61.

One of America's great character actors, Miguel Ferrer has died at the age of 61, we're sorry to announce. Many will remember him for his signature turn as Bob Morton in the 1987 classic RoboCop: the slick, ambitious Ocp executive who creates the film's title law enforcer and inadvertently gets on the wrong side of the villainous Dick Jones (Ronny Cox).

That film was but one stand-out in an immensely busy career: through the 1980s, brief roles in such shows as Magnum Pi and Cagney & Lacey eventually led to his recurring part as FBI agent Albert Rosenfield in David Lynch's brilliantly surreal thriller series, Twin Peaks. Ferrer reprised the role in Lynch's 1992 film spin-off Fire Walk With Me, and returned once again as Rosenfeld in the first episode of the Twin Peaks revival series. »

Miguel Ferrer Has Passed Away

19 January 2017 2:15 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A hard-working actor with over 100 screen credits to his name, actor Miguel Ferrer has sadly passed away at the age of 61.

Earlier today, Deadline reported the very sad news that Ferrer has passed away after a battle with cancer.

Since he began acting on screen in the early ’80s, Ferrer has lent his commanding presence as a performer to many TV series and films. Viewers know him as Dr. Garret Macy in Crossing Jordan, Owen Granger in NCIS: Los Angeles, and FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield in Twin Peaks—a role he reprised in both Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and the upcoming revival series on Showtime.

Ferrer was a familiar face to horror and sci-fi fans over the years, appearing in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, RoboCop, DeepStar Six, The Guardian, Night Visions, and several episodes of Tales From the Crypt.

He also helped bring life to several Stephen King adaptations, »

But not lost to his family,” Clooney wrote. “Miguel made the world brighter and funnier, and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental  events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will. »
