It's been two and a half years since AMC gave Frank Darabont the boot from The Walking Dead, the ratings juggernaut that still puts Sunday Night Football to shame. It's the largest gap on his resume since the early '00s, when he took six years to adapt Steven King's 1980 novella The Mist for the silver screen. Now he's back with Mob City, TNT's tense, fast-moving mini-series about 1940's Los Angeles. The script is colorful yet succinct – "the bad guys wear flashy shoes" – with violent visuals that call to »

Despite the commercial failure of Frank Darabont’s excellent adaptation of Stephen King’s supernatural novella The Mist (a modern genre masterpiece in my opinion which recently featured in our underrated King adaptations feature), it appears The Weinstein Company is working alongside the writer/director with a plan to bring the story to the small screen. Since its release back in 2007, Darabont’s film led by the brilliant Thomas Jane, has gone on to find an appreciated audience in much the same way as John Carpenter’s celebrated 1982 sci-fi horror classic The Thing.
The Oscar-nominated filmmaker of such classics as The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile and who is no stranger to television (having worked on The Shield, The Walking Dead and currently gangster series Mob City) has proposed 10-part series. It’s currently unknown if this will be a retelling of the Dimension film; continues from that shocking »

D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye) has come on board to direct Tin Man, NBC’s drama pilot from top feature writer Ehren Kruger (The Ring and Transformers franchises). Set in the near future, Tin Man is a psychological crime thriller that focuses on a fugitive robot accused of first-degree murder, who may hold the key to the future of human evolution, and the young female public defender forced to fight for his cause. Kruger is executive producing with his partner at Bobker/Kruger Films Daniel Bobker and John Glenn. Caruso’s involvement in Tin Man stems from his collaboration with Kruger on the feature side where the two have been developing sci-fi tentpole Invertigo at Sony, produced by Bobker/Kruger Films and Neal Moritz. This marks Caruso’s return to TV series where he has done episodic work in the past, including helming four episodes of FX’s The Shield. »

While there's been plenty of rumours surrounding the Man of Steel sequel since its announcement at Comic-Con, it's rare that we've heard any comments on Batman vs. Superman from anyone involved with the project. However, producer Charles Roven - whose DC credits include The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel - has given an update on the sequel's status, revealing that principal photography is set to get underway in February, as well as discussing the casting of Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader: "On Batman vs. Superman, we started soft prep in June, »

[Editors Note: With the DVD of Sons of Anarchy: Season Five set for a UK DVD and Blu-ray release next week (on November 25th to be precise), Nerdly reviewer and Soa super-fan Nathan takes a look at the DVD boxset - breaking down the cult show's fifth season episode by episode]
5×01 – Sovereign
When Sons of Anarchy ended last season, I was a little disappointed. It’s not that I hated it; I was just left with the feeling of longing for more. All throughout the season, we’ve seen our men in Samcro crushed by seemingly impossible odds, without any chance for escape. If there’s one thing that Kurt Sutter and company do best, it’s dropping the men into a hole and watching them try and escape. And the best part of this is the more they try to escape, the worse their situation gets. That’s why it was a bit of a disappointment when at the end of the season, they seemingly pulled the plug and left things out to dry. I mean, Clay Morrow was built »

The studio has also hired Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and David Wiener (The Killer) to write the feature film adaptation of the Vertigo comic. The 2003 comic comes from writer Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips. The series began publication in 2003, and it sounds like it will make for a solidly good movie.
The story is set in a "noir universe where a few people are spontaneously developing superpowers," and it follows "Holden Carver, a man who can absorb pain and pass it on to others, as he infiltrates a criminal organization on behalf of a law enforcement agency. His allegiances come into question, especially when he falls for the alluring killer, Miss Misery."

Despite all the flack the internet has been dishing out, Ben Affleck is doubling down with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Not only will he star as Batman in the Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, he also will be producing an adaptation of the DC property Sleeper alongside longtime friend and collaborator Matt Damon, and Alice in Wonderland producer Jennifer Todd. Variety reports DC has hired The Shield's creator Shawn Ryan and TV writer David Wiener (The Killing, Last Resort) to translate the comic written by Ed Brubaker with art by Sean Phillips into a compelling thriller. The 24-issue comic book series Sleeper centers on a sleeper agent named Holden Carver, who works for a CIA subset called Tao that's not exactly on the books or legal. Tao uses people with extraordinary powers to fulfill shady missions that are essentially geared toward world domination. Carver's special skill »
Six years ago, it looked like Tom Cruise would leap aboard the superhero/comic book/graphic novel train in an adaptation of DC Comics’ Sleeper. Warner Bros. were a part of the plan and they were eyeing Spider-Man director Sam Raimi to bring the series to life. It needs no saying, but this did not come to pass. Time went by and the better part of us got caught up in the hysteria that was Iron Man and eventually, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.
Now, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck – alternatively known as the Good Will Hunting guys or Jason Bourne and Batman — are teaming up to produce a new adaptation of Ed Brubaker’s comic. And just like a loyal sidekick, Warner Bros. is back on board too. Bringing the world to life with their words is the screenwriting duo of Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and David Wiener (The Killing »

Last we heard, way back in 2008, DC/Wildstorm Comics' Sleeper was in the capable hands of Sam Raimi. Development seemed to nod off and nothing ever came of the project, but it's now been picked up again by no less a producing partnership than Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. They're putting the reawakened Sleeper together at Warner Bros. in cahoots with third producer Jennifer Todd.The comic, by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, ran for a couple of years between 2003 and 2005, and involved several complex crossovers with the rest of the Wildstorm universe. It centers on Holden Carver, Aka The Conductor, who, thanks to contact with a weird alien artefact, develops the ability to absorb and store pain, and then pass it on again. He starts out as an undercover infiltrator of the criminal mob run by The Tactical Augemented Organism (Tao), but ends up switching sides and turning genuinely gangsta. »

Once upon a time, about six years ago, an adaptation of DC Comics' "Sleeper" was being tossed around for the big screen. Warner Bros. were tentatively eyeing an incarnation that would've paired up director Sam Raimi, with Tom Cruise slated to star. Needless to say, it didn't come to pass and everyone kind of forgot about it. Well, "Sleeper" has awakened once again. This time around Batman and Jason Bourne — aka Ben Affleck and Matt Damon — are teaming up to produce an adaptation of Ed Brubaker's comic set up, you guessed it, at Warner Bros. Helping to pull it all together will be Shawn Ryan ("The Shield," "Terriers") and David Wiener ("The Killing"), who will pen the screenplay about an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He's hired undercover by »

Originally developed as a vehicle for Tom Cruise with Sam Raimi and Josh Donen producing, Sleeper will now be produced by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Jennifer Todd.

We told you recently that comics publisher Idw had created a production company to develop projects based on their comics. Today they announced one of those projects, and it sounds like it could be pretty great.
