Fox Developing ‘Urban Cowboy’ TV Remake with Craig Brewer, Paramount TV (Exclusive)

28 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox is saddling up with writer-director Craig Brewer and Paramount TV for a series adaptation of the 1980 John Travolta-Debra Winger movie “Urban Cowboy.”

Brewer is on board to writer and direct the pilot and exec produce the series for Paramount TV and 20th Century Fox TV. It’s eyed as a possible companion piece for Fox’s mega hit “Empire” although the project is still in the early script stage.

From the small-world department, “Empire” is toplined by Terrence Howard, who starred in Brewer’s breakthrough feature, 2005’s “Hustle and Flow.”

Chris Levinson (“Tyrant”) is set to serve as showrunner and exec producer. Robert Evans, who produced the original Paramount film, and HBO alum Sue Naegle are also on board as exec producers. Robert Evans Co.’s James Sikura will co-exec produce.

Like the movie, the TV adaptation of “Urban Cowboy” will follow the star-crossed relationship of Sissy »

The Good, The Bad and The Badass: Sam Rockwell

17 May 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Last week, we took at look at the career of the original Mad Max, Mel Gibson. While this week's subject has never quite reached mega-stardom, he's still become a kind of indie icon and a favorite of us here at Sam Rockwell While he's been kicking around in features for well over twenty years, the first time I really noticed Sam Rockwell was in Galaxy Quest, where he stole scenes as the crew's disposable “red shirt” »

‘Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues’ #4 concludes a daring quest with the push of a button

Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #4

Written by: Erik Burnham

Art by: Nacho Arranz

Colors by: Esther Sanz

Questerians, our mission to undo the mess on planet Dryth caused by the Omega 13 device comes to an end in Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #4. 

When last we saw the crew Tommy was injured by enemy fire and had to be sent back to the Protector to recover. The crew seemed to be up a creek with no paddle-until Brandon tags in.

Brandon, who has a degree in engineering and actually knows how to work basic alien tech thanks to the Thermians, joins the team and makes short work of the soldiers guarding the entrance to the Irraka Control Station. Effectively providing a somewhat safe passage (there’s a small incident involving lasers) to the main control room where the self destruct button is found in less than two seconds. As usual, »

Fox releases trailers for their 2015-2016 new show slate

12 May 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.

First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.

From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »

But when his fictional novel about the life of an international assassin is published as a true story, he’s mistaken for a real hired killer and becomes something of a celebrity.Trying to escape his newfound infamous status, he escapes to Belize but is there entangled in an assassination plot. To keep his head, he’ll need to channel the character he created – Colt Rodgers – and draw on the skills he’s only chronicled on the page before if he wants to save the day.

The Walking Deceased (2015) Review

29 April 2015 6:04 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Film parodies come in three different types. There are the absolute classics like the Airplanes and The Naked Guns (and apparently most everything from the Zucker brothers) with gems like Spaceballs Galaxy Quest and This is Spinal Tap rounding out the very best in this niche genre. Then there are the okayaverage films like the Scary Movie franchise and the Hot Shots films. And then there are the lower forms. Theyre not complete garbage but they dont quite make the most of their ripe source material. The Walking Deceased wins a spot in this last category. »

25 underrated 1990s movie soundtracks

28 April 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Muppet Treasure Island to Speed, we take a look at the 90s soundtracks that deserve another listen...

Ah, the 1990s. The decade that brought us The Lion King. Titanic. Quentin Tarantino. That wordless bathroom scene in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks. Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the Mood for Love.

It was a good 10 years for film music, no doubt.

But scratch the surface of 1991 through 1999 and there are tons of good scores ready to spring a surprise on your ears. Some were attached to sorely underrated movies, others were overshadowed by wildly successful ones, and some have simply been forgotten in the passage of time.

Here, in no particular order, are the top 25 underappreciated film soundtracks from the 1990s.

1. Chaplin - John Barry

Okay, let's start with a big one. Richard Attenborough. Robert Downey Jr. John Barry. »

Galaxy Quest TV spin-off in the works

22 April 2015 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Reports are circulating that a Galaxy Quest spin-off is being put together at Paramount, with the makers involved...

"By Grabthar's hammer, by the Suns of Worvan, you shall be avenged!"

1999's Galaxy Quest was a genuinely funny and fond spoof of classic sci-fi TV, with great leading turns from Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen and, of course, Alan Rickman as the embittered Alexander Dane, a thespian who's grown to resent his fame as the alien, Dr Lazarus.

While our wish for a movie sequel never came true, news has broken that Paramount is looking to make a TV spin-off. Variety is reporting that Galaxy Quest co-writer Robert Gordon is in negotiations to make the show, with the involvement of original director Dean Parisot.

Galaxy Quest is, of course, one of a whole wave of film properties being dusted down for a TV spin-off. It has to be said, however, that Galaxy Quest »

Galaxy Quest Is Headed To Our Tv Screens

22 April 2015 12:56 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Galaxy Quest, an absolute gem of a sci fi comedy, is finally getting an expanded story, but this time the crew will be headed to the small screen for more adventures. The original movie, released in 1999, managed to lovingly lampoon a trope of sci fi series (most notably Star Trek), while at the same time playing homage to them with a knowing nod of respect towards what makes them so popular - the fans. Now we have word that Paramount is moving forward with a Galaxy Quest tv show. The movie's writer and director will both be involved in the project, but we'll likely see an entirely new cast. Galaxy Quest starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell and Tony Shaloub. If you haven't seen it, you really need to remedy that. »

Reel TV: 'Galaxy Quest' To Get a TV Show Instead of a Sequel

21 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

According to Galaxy Quest star Tim Allen, there is indeed a script written for a sequel, but as of today the only way to get more time with the crew of the Nsea Protector is to either rewatch the fantastic original film on a loop or to read the comic book series Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues. But, in a great twist of fate, the movie about the cast of a sci-fi TV show who end up getting abducted by aliens is now gearing up to become an actual TV show. According to Variety, Paramount Television has begun the process of putting together the show, which would reunite the original's core creative team of Robert Gordon (screenwriter), Dean Parisot (director), and Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (executive producers). And if there's a show in the works, it's safe to...

'Galaxy Quest' Is Heading To TV

21 April 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

All of you liked Galaxy Quest, right? Of course you did. Who wouldn't like a film that managed to sendup and pay homage to our favorite sci-if series Star Trek?

At any rate, if you enjoyed the flick, then you may like the news I have for you today.

Hollywood trade brings word that Paramount has decided to move forward with a television series based on the film.

Quest's original writer, Robert Gordon, will pen the script as well as executive produce the new show with Dean Parisot, who directed the original film, and Mark Johnson, who produced it.

Galaxy Quest starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam RockwellDaryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni. As much fun as it would be to see the band get back together, I imagine there will be an entirely new cast.

Paramount planning Galaxy Quest TV adaptation

21 April 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There may not be any immediate plans to bring Star Trek back to television in the near future, but we’ve now learned that Paramount is looking to get into the sci-fi TV game with a small screen adaptation of Galaxy Quest

The 1999 film starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman famously satirized Trek and became a cult classic (and is, arguably, one of the best Star Trek films ever made). Fans have been hoping for a sequel for quite some time now, and while a direct continuation of the story is destined to play out on comic book pages instead of on screen, the concept itself is ripe for a television adaptation, if handled correctly. So, by Grabthar’s hammer, we just may be in for a treat.

The film’s scribe, Robert Gordon, is expected to pen the TV version and serve as executive producer alongside original »

Galaxy Quest television series in development

21 April 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A television adaptation of Galaxy Quest is reportedly in the works.

The cult classic science fiction comedy's co-writer Robert Gordon and Dean Parisot are currently working with Paramount on a television spinoff, according to Variety.

Galaxy Quest starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman as feuding actors on a popular science fiction show reunited by actual aliens.

The aliens turn to these Hollywood stars for their help in an intergalactic crisis, believing that their television show was real.

Paramount has declined to comment on reports of a Galaxy Quest television adaptation.

Galaxy Quest's stature has grown among sci-fi fans since its release in 1999, with talk of a sequel even emerging a decade ago.

Even Galaxy Quest Is Getting Rebooted Now

21 April 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

By Grabthar's hammer, Galaxy Quest is the next '90s cult classic to get the reboot treatment. According to Deadline, Paramount is trying to revive the 1999 sci-fi parody as a TV series, with director Dean Parisot and writer Robert Gordon attached as producers. It's great news for the film's legions of fans, who last month launched an online petition to get the original film's stars to reunite for a Galaxy Quest convention, where they will undoubtedly be kidnapped by aliens who think they're actually out-of-work television actors. »

Galaxy Quest TV Series Enters Development

21 April 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Another cult classic movie earmarked for the small screen treatment has now set up shop at Paramount. The 1999 space comedy Galaxy Quest has been the subject of endless fan queries concerning a sequel, and in a roundabout way, the studio listened. According to Deadline, the network has started development on a TV series which may be a sequel, spinoff Or remake. While specifics on the deal are unreported, the trade does make mention of key members of the film’s original creative team set to return.

Writer Robert Gordon, director Dean Parisot, and producer Mark Johnson are expected to be involved in this new iteration. Whether it remakes the same story or ventures into hitherto unexplored realms of the galaxy, the enlistment of that core trio imparts a certain assuredness, as the first movie was a total knock-out.
