From 1999-2008, NBC and DirecTV aired one of the strangest soap operas that ever existed. Yep, we're talking about "Passions."Featuring witches, talking dolls, incestuous hookups and even mermaids, the series was beyond weird ... and, thanks to its bizarre stories, also oddly addictive.It's also known as the show that introduced the world to Jesse Metcalfe's abs and served as a launching pad for stars like Natalie Zea ("The Following"), Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("Scott Pilgrim vs. the World") and Justin Hartley ("Smallville," "Revenge").But what have the other residents of Harmony been up to since the show went off the air? We caught up with Sheridan Crane herself, McKenzie Westmore, last week -- where she revealed what she thought the wildest story-lines on the show were and if she keeps in contact with any of her costars.Check out the gallery above to find out which costars got engaged, »

With all the hype surrounding the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who last year, you could be forgiven for forgetting that it was actually the 50th year since one of the most notorious assassinations in history…the murder of JFK.
Parkland: The JFK Assassination Story was produced in tribute of the infamous event that resulted in the death of one of America’s greatest leaders. The film has some impressive talent attached to it including a producing credit from none other than Tom Hanks, and a whole cast full of star-studded household names. Parkland isn’t the greatest film in the world but it certainly is ambitious and tells an intriguingly original version of history we had not previously seen, which is definitely refreshing for a story »

Starting out with a guest spot on season one of Smallville, who would have guessed that a little over a decade later Amy Adams would find herself not only upgraded to the role of Lois Lane in Man Of Steel, but that she would also have one of the most enviable resumes in female acting.

It was late October when we last heard anything about the Prometheus sequel, but today word has come that a (re)writer has been found to polish the script along with a few other details about what we might be seeing in it.
Per The Wrap, after working with Ridley Scott on a new Blade Runner movie, Michael Green ("Smallville," "Heroes," Green Lantern) has been hired to rewrite Prometheus 2 for 20th Century Fox. Jack Paglen (Transcendence) wrote the original draft of the screenplay.
In addition, multiple sources told the site that the “Untitled Ridley Scott Project” 20th Century Fox announced it will release in March of 2016 is Prometheus 2 (unofficial title). Production could start as early as this fall, and the sequel will apparently be much more “Alien-y” and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise.
Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature »

Something that saved it was not only the expansive and desolate Alien-world we found ourselves stuck on but also the performances of Noomi Rapace and, yes, Michael Fassbender. With those two surviving (in some form) the rampage of death and self-destruction at the end of the film, they flew off to find the answers…to the answers…of the continual questions: Where did we come from and why were we abandoned?
The new writer on-board is Michael Green, who’s written the likes of Heroes, Smallville and is currently working on the screenplay for The Flash. He’s taking on the original script by Transcendence scribe Jack Paglen and will reportedly re-work it »

Screenwriter Michael Green (Green Lantern) has signed on to rewrite the script for Prometheus 2. Multiple sources are also claiming that this follow-up is the mysterious Ridley Scott project that was given a March 4, 2016 release date by 20th Century Fox last week.
Michael Green will rewrite the original script by Jack Paglen (Transcendence), who signed on back in June to write the original draft. Prometheus was essentially an unofficial prequel to Ridley Scott's 1979 classic Alien. The sequel that Michael Green is writing is said have a more terrifying tone than 2012's Prometheus. The follow-up is also expected to included multiple versions of the android David, played by Michael Fassbender. It isn't known yet if the studio plans to go with a different title in place of Prometheus 2.
According to Jeff Sneider of The Wrap, screenwriter Michael Green has been hired to write the Prometheus sequel. He'll be taking over for Jack Paglen (“Transcendence”) who wrote the original draft. When will we see this film? Well, the other day Fox announced that an untitled Ridley Scott film will be released March 4, 2016, and sources for The Wrap have verified that the date is for Prometheus 2. The sequel is said to be a priority as Fox is ignoring all the criticism that was placed on the original and just staring at the $400 million the R-rated film grossed worldwide. As for Green, he worked on screenplays for Green Lantern, The Flash (film), Smallville, Heroes, and is still finishing the new Blade Runner script that he began working on last year for Ridley Scott. Fox has scheduled Untitled Ridley Scott Project for wide release on March 4, 2016. — BoxOffice (@BoxOffice) »
