After more than a decade in development, writer/director Scott Frank has succeeded in turning best-selling novelist Lawrence Block’s signature book into a harrowing suspense thriller with an intriguing premise in A Walk Among the Tombstones. Liam Neeson stars as Matt Scudder, a troubled former N.Y.P.D. officer turned private detective whose quest for redemption leads him to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) track down the men (David Harbour, Adam David Thompson) who brutally murdered his wife. Adapted for the screen by Frank, the crime drama also stars Boyd Holbrook, Brian “Astro” Bradley, Sebastian Roché, Mark Consuelos, and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson. At the film’s recent press day, Frank talked about how the project first came together, why it took so long to bring to the screen, what convinced Neeson to come on board, casting Stevens into the dark role of a drug trafficker, the pivotal »

It’s been a cruel, cruel summer for the lofties of Fox’s New Girl, who’ve endured wedding after wedding with little more than a refrigerator door full of save-the-dates to show for it.
But as Season 4 opens (Tuesday at 9/8c), the group’s long, nuptial nightmare is drawing to a much-desired close.
“We pick them up [as they're] about to attend the very last wedding of the season,” executive producer Brett Baer tells TVLine. And all of those champagne toasts and garter tosses have proven fertile romantic ground for some (Schmidt, Coach), not so much for others (Jess, Winston).
We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.
2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Strain, Sons of Anarchy, Graceland and Project Runway!
1 | During that super-awkward sex scene on The Strain, was there really not a single editor who noticed that Ephraim’s jacket is on in one shot, then off in the next — without him putting Nora down? And did Gus actually throw away the guard’s gun after escaping the prison transport? He didn’t suspect he’d, you know, need it again, with these creatures on the streets? »

So, this one’s come as a bit of a surprise - even considering the recent spate of film properties being adapted for screen (The Devil’s Advocate, Westworld and Minority Report, to name just a few).
The televisual adaptation of the film, which was itself an adaptation of Stephen Hunter novel Point Of Impact, is apparently in development at Paramount. Wahlberg himself is believed to be on executive producer duties, along with regular collaborator Stephen Levinson.
The film was directed by Antoine Fuqua, with Wahlberg starring as Bob Swagger, a former Us Marine sniper. »
John Stamos‘ next role will find him grappling with an unexpectedly full house.
Fox has given a put pilot order (meaning, “almost guaranteed to air”) to an untitled comedy starring Stamos as a longtime bachelor whose life is turned upside down when he discovers he’s a father — and a grandfather. (Have mercy!)

While Fox has already released nearly five minutes of the Sept. 28 episode online, 14 new shots reveal more of what we can expect — including Peter and Homer’s apparent shared love of short shorts, as well as Brian’s clear disgust for Santa’s Little Helper’s total lack of table manners. »
The TV version of the Tom Cruise big-budget sci-fi actioner “Minority Report” has found a home — at Fox. Which means “Minority Report” will either run for 5 mind-boggling seasons, where every season you wonder if it’s going to get canceled, or it’ll get canceled after one brutal, painful season. Good luck to ya! With the news of the pilot commitment by the network, we also get an official synopsis for the upcoming show, which will take place 10 years after the events of the movie: The Minority Report follow-up takes place 10 years after the end of Precrime in D.C., when one of the three Precogs struggles to lead a “normal” human life, but remains haunted by visions of the future. He meets a detective haunted by her past who just may help him find a purpose to his gift. So basically they’re going to turn the precog into »

It was recently reported that Steven Spielberg is working on a "Minority Report" TV series, which is based on his movie and the Philip K Dick's short story. THR has now learned more details about the series, which is being written by "Godzilla" writer Max Borenstein. The story takes place ten years after the end of Precrime in Washington, DC, when one of the three Precogs struggles to lead a "normal" human life, but remains haunted by visions of the future. He meets a detective haunted by her past who just may help him find a purpose to his gift. The TV series is being described as a sequel and will obviously feature a woman in the lead role, unlike Spielberg's film which had Tom Cruise in the lead. The series will likely end up at Fox. »
The McConaissance required some time on television, but there won't be a similar Cruisaissance.
Matthew McConaughey "slummed it" on HBO's "True Detective," and the rave reviews likely helped propel him to his first Academy Award. One would think Tom Cruise might take some notes from that and star in the TV series sequel to his 2002 movie, "Minority Report." One would be wrong.
Instead, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is planning the pilot without him - and they're even flipping the gender on his role. The series would take place 10 years after the Precrime program ended and follow a male Precog who's still sees visions of the future. He teams up with "a detective haunted by her past who just may help him find a purpose to his gift."
In the 2002 film, based on Philip K. Dick's short story, Cruise played a detective in the year 2054 who ran the Precrime unit, »

Fox has secured the rights to the long-rumoured Minority Report TV show, with the new series set to feature a female lead. According to THR, the studio has already tapped Godzilla writer Max Borenstein to write the script, while Steven Spielberg has also been involved in the development of the project so far. The series will pick up with one of the three Pre-Cogs (mutated humans capable of seeing into the future), and will follow his attempts at a normal life after the Pre-Crime initiative has been shut down. However, his...

Minority Report, the 2002 sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise and directed by Steven Spielberg, is getting a TV reboot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has given a put-pilot order (meaning they will have to pay a big penalty if they choose not to go to pilot) for a series that will take place ten years after the pre-crime unit was shut down. The show will center on one of the pre-cogs (the male one, presumably) haunted by visions of the future, who teams up with a detective "haunted by her past" who "just may help him find a purpose to his gift.” Still, they had better come up with a new name for it or Larry Wilmore is going to be so pissed. »

Fox is reportedly looking into buying the rights to a sequel TV series of Minority Report. The popular sci-fi hit that starred Tom Cruise will be on the small screen with a female lead. It will follow up 10 years after the film ended in DC, with new drama to follow. Max Borenstein will be penning the TV series version of the show. No word on casting yet or when fans can expect for the show to air. However, it appears that Fox is serious about the show.
This will be interesting for us to see how Fox proceeds. Since it is just a pilot order, I would not be shocked if it does not come to be. Tom Cruise fans have made it clear that no one can ever replace him, which assume will be the case for the TV sequel. However, I am pretty sure Fox is not worried about. »
