Alex Winter says Bill & Ted 3 “will be funnier because they’re older”

2 August 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2012, the long-rumoured third Bill & Ted movie took a big step towards becoming a reality when it was announced that Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) had signed on to direct the returning Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves as Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan.

Since that time the project seems to have remained stationery, despite its two stars popping up every six months or so to tease the third adventure. Well, Alex Winter is at it again, offering up a few words to The Next Web and explaining that Bill & Ted 3 has the potential to be funnier than its predecessors given that its characters are now older.

“It’s exciting to come back to the characters. The fun thing about them is that they’re ageless. You play them in terms of who they are spiritually. Their mannerism and physicality are not tied to age. We played them like 9-year-old kids. »

10 largely forgotten UK sci-fi sitcoms

23 July 2015 3:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Remember Kinvig, Clone, Not With A Bang? These are the UK sci-fi sitcoms you’re unlikely to see on comedy best-of lists…

With E4 sci-fi comedy commissions, Tripped and Aliens, and in-development Channel 4 projects, Space Ark and Graham Linehan/Adam Buxton collaboration The Cloud, in the works, a new crop of sci-fi sitcom could be making its way to UK TV.

Making funny sci-fi on a small-screen budget is tough enough without the additional pressure of having to attract viewers more traditionally down-to-earth in their sitcom tastes. Sci-fi sets and effects can be seen as prohibitively expensive by comedy commissioners (which is perhaps why the best UK sci-fi sitcoms of recent years has been on BBC Radio), and the genre’s niche status doesn’t scream mainstream hit. Over the years, one or two stand-outs have managed to straddle the sci-fi and comedy TV worlds, but plenty more have stumbled in the attempt. »

‘Deadpool’ Breaks the Internet or Maybe Just Comic Con

13 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

After some footage of Ryan ReynoldsDeadpool shooting thugs, cracking jokes, and doing a little dance to Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” leaked at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, fan anticipation has increased for Deadpool, which got an official release date and a supporting cast in the past year.

For those not in the know, Deadpool is a mercenary character created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld in an New Mutants issue as a villainous parody of DC Comics’ Deathstroke. (Wade Wilson, Slade Wilson, see what they did there.) Over the past two decades, Deadpool has become a fan favorite character thanks to work by writers like Joe Kelly, Gail Simone, Daniel Way, and most recently Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, who gave him a daughter and an even sadder backstory in the 2013 “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” arc. He has picked up a wide variety »

'Fatal Attraction' TV Event Series Planned with 'Mad Men' Writers

1 July 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox is teaming up with Mad Men writers Andr&#233 Jacquemetton and Maria Jacquemetton to write and executive produce an event series based on the 1987 thriller Fatal Attraction. The one-hour series is being developed through Paramount Television, with the Fox Broadcasting Company commissioning the script. Fox's president of entertainment, David Madden, developed the original Fatal Attraction movie while working as a Paramount executive.

No specific plot details were released, but the event series will follow a married man's affair that haunts him in deadly ways. The original thriller, directed by Adrian Lyne, centered on Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas), a wealthy lawyer who has a weekend fling with a publishing executive named Alex Forest (Glenn Close) that leads to the deranged woman stalking his family. The movie spawned the popular term "bunny boiler", after one of the thriller's most memorable scenes where Alex literally boils a rabbit.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

The X-Files Revival Series Adds Community Star Joel McHale

3 June 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

What strange, but wonderful piece of news! Fresh off the finale of Community's sixth season, Joel McHale is joining the cast of Fox's The X-Files revival series. So far the X-Files casting has focused on the return of actors from the original series, David Duchovny and Queen Gillian Anderson, of course, along with Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and William B. Davis (The Smoking Man). Robert Patrick (Agent Doggett) and Annabelle Gish (Reyes) are also rumored to return. McHale will play a conservative anchor of a popular internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Mulder. Right off the bat, I'm thrilled to think how McHale and Duchovny will interact together. They're both fantastic comedic actors with charm to spare, and I could easily see them having killer on-screen chemistry. This is the first new character announced for the limited series, and I would expect much more in the »

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

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

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. »

Kevin James Finds True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

Probably happy to be away from Segways for a while after filming and promotional duties for Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Kevin James is tackling a new blend of comedy and action for True Memoirs Of An International Assassin.Jeff Morris wrote the script, which finds the actor as a mild-mannered accountant who dreams of becoming a thriller writer. 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. »

Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.

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 »
