New Line Cinema’s 2000 time travel tearjerker, Frequency, is changing its wavelength. The movie will now be reborn on the small screen thanks to a deal from NBC, who will work in cahoots with Warner Bros. Television to issue forth a series of adventures for the father and son team.
The original feature, helmed by Gregory Hoblit (Primal Fear, Fallen) and scripted by Toby Emmerich, follows a NYPD police detective (Jim Caviezel) who learns he can communicate with his now-deceased dad thirty years in the past via an old ham radio. The pic made a sizeable wedge at the box office, taking in $68 million from its $30 million budget. While not penning the series, Emmerich will stick around as executive producer for this latest iteration. Taking up the quill for the show is Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver, whose involvement will serve as part of a long-standing deal he brokered with WB. »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
