Mystic River (2003)
Last May, HBO announced that it had deals with four writers — Carly Wray (Mad Men), Jane Goldman (X-Men), Brian Helgeland (Mystic River) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island) — to “explore different time periods of [George R.R. Martin]’s vast and rich universe. There is no set timetable for these projects. We’ll take as much or as

This week’s question: In light of recent “Galaxy Quest” and “Lord of the Rings” news, which movie/movie franchise should be rebooted as a TV series? (question courtesy of Allison Keene)

I have so many ideas for this! During that season we got “Minority Report” and “Limitless,” I got angry about how many of these reboots/remakes/sequels are male-skewering and male-dominated and started making a list of all the movies I’d rather see instead – obviously ones that are more focused on telling stories about women and non-binary folks. “Whip It” could be a fantastic Freeform teen drama series (I’m still angry that
Kevin Bacon will lead City On A Hill, a Showtime pilot from Ben Affleck about Boston crime in the 1990s...
In recent years, when one thinks of Boston, you would be forgiven if what springs to mind is crime drama. After all, Dennis Lehane has made a near cottage industry out of tough tales about tough guys in Dorchester or Southie, such as Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River. There was also Martin Scorsese’s The Departed and Ben Affleck’s The Town. Well Affleck and Mystic River’s Kevin Bacon want again to mine that lore while also reimagining a true crime saga for Showtime: City On A Hill.
Based on an idea originated by Affleck, who will executive produce, as well as fellow executive producer Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler), City On A Hill will return to Beantown’s not so glorious days in the 1990s,
Whether through serendipity or survival instinct, studios have already managed to release more than a dozen major Oscar contenders, and 2017 is far from over. It’s still early, and usually coming up with lists only makes trouble, but based on conversations with consultants, executives, producers and other veterans of the Oscar trenches, we can identify the following studio releases as pictures of interest: “Wonder Woman,” “Dunkirk,” “Get Out,” “Blade Runner: 2049,” “War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Baby Driver,” “Logan,” “mother!” and “Beauty and the Beast.”
Still on deck for fourth-quarter release are “The Post,” “Downsizing,” “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” and “All the Money in the World.” (Disney’s holiday tandem of “Coco” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” are also intriguing wild cards.)
Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and distribution for Warner Bros., says the studio

Sean Penn is set to star in a space exploration series on Channel 4 called The First, from the creator of House Of Cards...
Sean Penn, the controversial, two-time-Oscar-winning actor who first achieved notable acclaim for playing one-liner-spouting stoner Jeff Spicoli, is about to do something that he’s never done in his storied acting career: headline a television series, specifically, streaming series The First for Channel 4 and Hulu.
Penn, like an increasing amount of A-list actors, will take the television plunge in this new project, which was given a straight-to-series order by the streaming outlet back in May - a space exploration-themed story set in a near-future that will follow humanity’s first mission to colonise Mars.
Interestingly, the visionary behind the series is not one typically associated with the space/sci-fi/adventure genre. Beau Willimon, who is best known as the creator, writer and
The two-time Oscar winner (Milk, Mystic River) will make his TV series-regular debut and star in Hulu's straight-to-series space drama The First.
From House of Cards creator Beau Willimon, The First is set in the near future and explores the first human mission to Mars and interplanetary colonization. The eight-episode drama focuses not only on the astronauts, but also on their families and loved ones, as well as the ground team on Earth. Details about Penn's character are being kept under wraps.

Once again, for this week's Geeks Vs Loneliness, we're eschewing our usual introduction, that you can find on the 100+ other posts in this series (some links can be found further down the page). Instead, we're handing over to Robb, who asked us if he could write a piece entitled 'alchohol, depression and movies: the trilogy of my 20s'). With a fair smattering of film quotes - just in case the context isn't clear - here it is. Huge thanks to you, Robb...

Game of Thrones‘ eighth and final season may not air until 2019, HBO programming president Casey Bloys says in a recent interview with EW.com.
The fantasy series’ showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have yet to write episodes or determine production schedules for Thrones‘ swan song, but the HBO exec won’t rule out episodes of the final run airing in 2019, telling the site that he’d have “a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.”

Hyams spent more than 40 years at Warners, rising to executive VP of special projects. He worked with Eastwood on all his films from 1971’s “Any Which Way But Loose” through 2004’s “Mystic River” and shepherded the films through film festivals, premieres and awards campaigns.
Eastwood said in a statement, “Joe was an incredibly smart, intuitive and talented executive who played a crucial role in making my movies succeed. More important, he was a great friend and I will miss him.”
Working with stars such as James Dean, Burt Lancaster, Hillary Swank, and Morgan Freeman, Hyams nurtured personal relationships with many of the stars he worked with, and he served as a mentor and advisor to many people.

Netflix has unveiled the first look at their new show Ozark, which debuts on the subscription service later this summer – you can check out the first trailer and debut images below!
The new show is directed and executive produced by Jason Bateman (The Family Fang, Office Christmas Party), who also stars in the show as Marty Bird, a financial planner who relocates with his family from a Chicago suburb to Missouri Ozarks, a summer resort community. The move has to do with Marty also being a top money launderer and after a job backfires, the second biggest Mexican drug cartel comes for them.
Bateman will direct half the episodes of the 10-episode series and marks a return to television series directing for the actor, who previously directed episodes of Arrested Development amongst others, as well as 2013’s Bad Words and 2015’s The Family Fang, which co-starred Nicole Kidman and Christopher Walken.
