Lakeshore, Vine Aig plot expanded slate

24 March 2015 4:04 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Lakeshore Entertainment is moving ahead with its production ambitions following a deal with Vine Alternative Investments Group that will see the parties co-finance 12 upcoming Lakeshore features.

Laura Austin-Little, the newly appointed head of international sales and acquisitions who arrived from Annapurna International, will oversee sales with svp of international sales Jason Buckley.

The move means Lakeshore will phase out its long collaboration with Sierra/Affinity, although the latter will continue to handle existing titles like The Age Of Adaline, the Blake Lively starrer that Lionsgate will open in the Us on April 25.

The co-financing pact expands Lakeshore CEO Tom Rosenberg’s (pictured) relationship with Vine, the New York-based asset management firm that has invested in Lakeshore’s capital structure for a number of years.

Lakeshore will continue to finance production and distribution, including Us P&A on its film slate, via its credit facility led by JPMorgan Chase Bank.

Lakeshore Entertainment is co-financing 12 of its movies with Vine Alternative Investments Group, a New York-based asset management firm.

Lakeshore’s upcoming titles include “The Age of Adaline,” starring Blake Lively, Harrison Ford, Michiel Huisman and Ellen Burstyn, and “The Vatican Tapes,” starring Michael Pena and Djimon Hounsou.

Under the Vine deal, Lakeshore will continue to finance production and distribution — including U.S. prints and advertising on its motion pictures — under its credit facility led by JPMorgan Chase Bank. Vine has been an investor in Lakeshore’s corporate capital structure for several years.

Sleepy Hollow Granted Season 3 Renewal

18 March 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox has committed to more outings of its mystery-adventure series Sleepy Hollow, as today the network announced that the show has been granted a season 3 renewal. The third season has been earmarked for 18 episodes which are set to further explore Ichabod Crane’s relationship with Lieutenant Abbie Mills. It will also mark the introduction of new showrunner Clifton Campbell.

Campbell, creator of The Glades, takes over the position from Mark Groffman. The former showrunner is thought to have exited due to poor ratings during its second season, which saw a staggering 40% drop following a promising debut season.

With a fresh set of eyes serving the tale of Crane and his cohorts, Fox’s President of Entertainment David Madden is confident that the show will continue to break the mould:

Sleepy Hollow’ is truly inventive television. The talented producers -led by Alex, Bob, Len and Heather- along with the brilliant cast, »

Gotham's Lesley-Ann Brandt Replaces Lina Esco As 'Maze' On Lucifer

17 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to THR, actress Lesley-Ann Brandt (who played Copperhead on Gotham) will replace Lina Esco as Maze on Fox's Lucifer pilot. This character was first introduced in the pages of Neil Gaiman's Sandman as Lucifer's right hand woman, who eventually follows him to Earth. She's described as "a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman" on the show. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Now it seems it's "undergone an evolution toward a police procedural", with the character getting his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals. Tom Ellis will »

Theo James drops out of Underworld sequel Next Generation

10 March 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Theo James will not star in Underworld: Next Generation.

It was reported last year that the fifth Underworld movie would focus on James's vampire character David, who was introduced in 2012's Underworld: Awakening.

But James, who reprises his role as Four in this month's Insurgent, told Digital Spy that he is now unlikely to return for the sequel.

"No, they have something in the works, but my involvement in it is... I think it's going be very difficult to do that with these [Divergent] movies, and my other commitments," James said.

Kate Beckinsale, who has played Selena in all four of the Underworld movies to date, is also expected to be absent from the fifth instalment, although writer-producer Len Wiseman recently hinted otherwise.

James will begin shooting the final Divergent sequel, Allegiant, this summer, while his upcoming films in 2015 include crime thriller London Fields with Johnny Depp, and drama The Secret Scripture with Rooney Mara. »

Lucifer Pilot Adds Lina Esco As 'Mazikeen'

4 March 2015 11:35 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It seems ol' Scratch will have some company when he relocates to a slightly cooler climate. Deadline report that Cane actress Lina Esco has been cast alongside Tom Ellis in Fox's Lucifer, playing a character named Maze (almost certainly Mazikeen from the comics), who is described as "Lucifer’s best friend... a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman." Esco has appeared in CSI and the Heroes webseries Heroes: Destiny, as well as co-writing, directing and starring in the independent film, Free The Nipple. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux.

Comic book adaptation Lucifer has found its leading man – EastEnders, Doctor Who and Miranda star Tom Ellis

Adding another name to the long list of British actors who have headed to Hollywood to portray American comic book characters, Welsh actor Tom Ellis has now been cast in Fox’s Lucifer pilot, as you may have heard over the weekend.

Depending on your tastes in television, there are many roles you could recognise Tom Ellis from. He landed a small but significant role as Thomas Milligan in Doctor Who’s Last Of The Time Lords, a 29-episode stint as Dr. Oliver in EastEnders and a series regular role as Gary in BBC comedy Miranda. To our cousins across the pond, he might be better known as William P. Rush in the medical-themed TV drama Rush.

He will take the title role in Lucifer, based on Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ comic of the same name, »

Tom Ellis Lands Leading Role In Fox’s Lucifer Pilot

27 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s Lucifer pilot has bagged its horned antihero in the shape of Welsh actor, Tom Ellis. Known for his extensive television work in the UK, Ellis made waves in a variety of popular British shows including No Angels, Merlin, Rush and Miranda. He will soon be packing his bags for the sunny climes of Los Angeles as he prepares for his latest small screen performance as king of hell, Lucifer Morningstar.

Late last year, when the show was granted an initial pilot commitment, it was expected that it would stick closely to the comic series. Created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith and Mike Dringenberg, the original DC Comics-run centers on Lucifer who, “bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux.”
