Critics Pick the Best Movies That Should Be Made Into TV Shows — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the Best Movies That Should Be Made Into TV Shows — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In light of recent “Galaxy Quest” and “Lord of the Rings” news, which movie/movie franchise should be rebooted as a TV series? (question courtesy of Allison Keene)

I have so many ideas for this! During that season we got “Minority Report” and “Limitless,” I got angry about how many of these reboots/remakes/sequels are male-skewering and male-dominated and started making a list of all the movies I’d rather see instead – obviously ones that are more focused on telling stories about women and non-binary folks. “Whip It” could be a fantastic Freeform teen drama series (I’m still angry that

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award
Amy Adams can rise to any challenge: sparkle as a princess, brawl like a Boston barmaid, dance with Muppets, kiss Superman, earn five Oscar nominations and hold her own against Meryl Streep — twice. Still, on Nov. 10, the deeply private, craft-driven actress will face a new test when Tom Hanks, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Kristen Stewart, Chris Messina and Denis Villeneuve take the stage of the Beverly Hilton Hotel to praise her talents as the 31st recipient of the American Cinematheque Award.

Being lauded for her entire body of work is “a little overwhelming,” says Adams. “I tend to look at things piece by piece.”

As for the prospect of watching a montage of her entire filmography, Adams falls silent. “Yup,” she eventually says with the well-mannered equanimity of an actress who spent years doing dinner theater in Minnesota. Then she giggle-exhales.

“I wasn’t even comfortable at my wedding having my family say things that were nice

Rachel McAdams and Selma Blair Reveal Their Own James Toback Sexual Harassment Stories
Rachel McAdams and Selma Blair have shared nearly identical stories to Vanity Fair in which they detail being sexually harassed by James Toback. The actresses join over 200 women who have come forward accusing the director and screenwriter of harassment. Both women say Toback invited them to his hotel room to discuss a starring role in the 2001 movie “Harvard Man,” but Toback’s intentions turned sexual once they arrived.

McAdams says she met Toback in theater school when she was 21 years old. After she auditioned for the part in Toback’s film, the director allegedly invited her to workshop the role one on one. He reportedly asked her to leave her phone number with his casting agent’s assistant and told McAdams they would get back in touch. McAdams says Toback called her later that evening and invited her over to his hotel room, claiming she had to come that night

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Video: Rebecca Strips Down for Her Sexiest Song Yet
When Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom says that Friday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c) features “the sexiest song we’ve ever done”… well, that’s saying a lot. (Sexier than “The Sexy Getting Ready Song”? “We Tapped That Ass”? “Heavy Boobs”???)

In her ongoing effort to annihilate Josh Chan, Rebecca turns to the worst person she knows: her amoral boss, Nathaniel. “Strip Away My Conscience” — which you can watch in full above — is a jazzy, Bob Fosse-style number, with Rebecca doing a striptease for Nathaniel, flanked by scantily clad backup dancers, and tempting him to teach her how to be bad like him.

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Looking Back on the Slasher Classic 20 Years Later

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Looking Back on the Slasher Classic 20 Years Later
With Halloween quickly approaching, horror fans everywhere are in search of the next great scary movie. While 2017 has been a phenomenal year for the genre -- with standouts like Split, Annabelle: Creation, It and Get Out -- audiences need only to look back on the late ’90s slasher era for some of horror’s best thrills.

The genre was more popular than ever thanks to the colossal success of Scream in 1996, with almost every major film studio attempting to recreate that same magic. Soon, everything from Urban Legends to a new installment of Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis followed. Between 1996 and 2000, the horror genre was at an all-time high. So high, it almost became hard to keep track of them all.

But one slasher film in particular stands out among the rest: I Know What You Did Last Summer, which came out 20 years ago on Oct. 17, 1997.

It’s not all that surprising, given the screenplay

Selma Blair’s Production Company to Adapt Novel ‘The Lost’ Into Movie (Exclusive)
Selma Blair and her production company, Sainted Productions, have purchased the rights to Sarah Beth Durst’s novel “The Lost.”

It is also unknown at this time whether this will be adapted into a film or TV series.
