Leonard Nimoy’s Son Plans Spock Documentary (Exclusive)

27 March 2015 6:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A month after the death of Leonard Nimoy, his son Adam Nimoy has announced plans to produce and direct a documentary about his father titled “For the Love of Spock.”

The project is aimed at celebrating the 50th anniversary of “Star Trek,” which aired for the first time on Sept. 8, 1966. Zachary Quinto, who portrayed the Spock character in last two “Star Trek” films, will narrate the documentary.

David Zappone, the owner and president of Paramount-based 455 Films, will produce.

“This will be a tribute to my dad and Spock,” Adam Nimoy told Variety. “We have plenty to work from because my dad loved telling stories and he was very fond of the role.”

Adam Nimoy said that he and his father began discussing the project several months ago and agreed that it should focus on the enduring nature of Spock and Nimoy’s portrayal of the relentlessly logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise. »

Supergirl to use the Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman Daily Planet set?

17 March 2015 2:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Okay, so this could be a story of rampant speculation, but it could be a fun little Easter Egg for us fans.

Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg, who is deep into the pilot episode of Supergirl for CBS, tweeted out a photo from the Warner Bros. back lot that indicates that they will be using a rather familiar location to fans of Superman. The set? The Daily Planet exterior from the much-maligned 90s TV show Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

Check out the tweet below:

Morning at the WB lot! #Supergirl pic.twitter.com/JZeioRy8Kp

Andrew Kreisberg (@AJKreisberg) March 16, 2015

Pretty familiar right? Check out the photos below from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman:

As we said, this is nothing but speculation at this point. But knowing how the team behind Arrow and The Flash work with their Easter Eggs, it wouldn’t be that unlikely »

Helen Slater and Dean Cain’s roles in Supergirl revealed?

15 March 2015 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was rather exciting fan news when it was announced that former Supergirl Helen Slater and former Superman Dean Cain had joined the cast of CBS’s Supergirl, which will see Melissa Benoist take on the role of Kara Zor-El.

Slater and Cain were announced as joining the cast, but it was not revealed who they would be playing. But those keen eyes at KryptonSite have noted that the show’s IMDb page has listed the actors as playing Fred and Sylvia Danvers, the adoptive parents of Kara.

Of course, this is not an official bit of news as IMDb is often user controlled and can get things wrong. However, Supergirl is being produced by Greg Berlanti, who is also the showrunner on The Flash, which has seen original The Flash star John Wesley Shipp come onto the show as the father of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen. So, totally within the realms of possibility. »

The Cast of ‘My So-Called Life’: Where Are They Now?

12 March 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

In 1994, a show about a teenage girl came into our lives and changed them forever. While it was just as swiftly taken from us, My So-Called Life left an impact on television and on its viewers. As we near the show’s 21st birthday (Rayanne, you still should not be drinking) we thought we’d check in and see how the Chase family and friends have fared over the years. Spoiler: one of them is now a royal!

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

We all know how Angela Chase herself turned out. Danes has enjoyed a successful career, including Emmy wins for Temple Grandin and Homeland. And our favorite angsty teen is now a mom! She and husband Hugh Dancy welcomed a son in 2012.

Bess Armstrong (Patty Chase)

As Patty, Angela’s mom who tried her best to navigate the minefield of life with a teenage daughter, Armstrong gave us all »

Production is underway of CBS’ Supergirl, which sees Melissa Benoist suiting up as Kara Zor-El and we have our first set photos below thanks to the good folk over at Superman Homepage.

But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.”

Extraterrestrial DVD Review

9 March 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 Director: The Vicious Brothers

Cast: Brittany Allen, Freddie Stroma, Emily Perkins, Gil Bellows, Michael Ironside

Running Time: 98 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extraterrestial is the latest science fiction horror movie to be released straight to home entertainment. Sadly it doesn’t add anything original to the genre, instead rehashing the same old story.

A group of college students go to a cabin in the woods (yes that original) for a weekend of partying. Whilst there they encounter a crashed UFO and it’s occupants are not friendly. Unbeknownst to the teens they have stumbled onto the aliens frequented stomping ground and they may be the next victims.

It is mentioned several times early on that leading lady April and her family haven’t been to the family cabin since she was a young girl. Personally the more interesting plot line for me would be that her and her family were previous victims of the space travelling tyrants, »

5 March 2015 4:43 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

Daniel von Bargen, a prolific character actor best known for his role as George’s lazy boss Mr. Kruger on “Seinfeld,” as Commandant Edwin Spangler, the military veteran who oversees the cadets at Marlin Academy, on TV’s “Malcolm in the Middle,” and for his role in a two-part episode of “The West Wing” in which he played Air Force General Ken Shannon, died March 1 in Montgomery, Ohio, after a long illness.
