Netflix Show A Series Of Unfortunate Events Gets Its Leads

27 January 2016 10:47 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A Series Of Unfortunate Events is a book series that's beloved by many. Told as sort of a dark, morbid fairy tale, the story follows three orphans and their hopping from home to home, all the while being chased by their relative Count Olaf, who desperately seeks to steal their family inheritance.

Many of you may remember the film that came out in 2004. The film starred Jim Carrey as the nefarious Count Olaf, and despite its critical success, it didn't make quite enough money to warrant a sequel (the film took in $209 million at the box office on its $140 million budget). Still, the movie and books held a special place in many folks' hearts, and like many formerly-dropped properties in the past, it eventually made its way to Netflix.

Fans were so excited that some even went so far as to put together a fanmade trailer.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events Expands Its Cast For Netflix

27 January 2016 3:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As it continues to expand its roster of commissioned programming, Netflix is unarguably going from strength to strength. This trend continues with its upcoming show, the Paramount TV-produced A Series Of Unfortunate Events – which is an episodic telling of the popular series of children’s novels, previously produced as a Jim Carrey movie. Now, the series has now cast two more of its key characters, as the project nears production.

The source material comprises 13 children’s novels by the author Daniel Handler – writing under the pseudonym Lemony Snicket. It centres on three siblings – Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire – who are orphaned when their parents perish in a mysterious and tragic fire. The children find themselves in the care of their sinister uncle, Count Olaf, whose primary motivation for welcoming the trio is limited to his pursuit of their considerable inheritance. The dark tale encompasses Olaf’s attempts to swindle the children, »

The Most Successful Ya Novel Movie Adaptations, Ranked

22 January 2016 11:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even if you're not a big reader of young adult fiction, you may have seen the advertisements for the new Chloë Grace Moretz movie The 5th Wave and suspected that it looks like the kind of movie that was adapted from a Ya franchise. All the elements are there: a post-apocalyptic dystopia, a winsome female protagonist who stands up to become the world's champion, an imperiled younger sibling and the winning combination of light science fiction and teenaged angst. The 5th Wave is the first in a trilogy of books by Rick Yancey about a group of underage rebels fighting off an alien invasion. »

A Series Of Unfortunate Events: Neil Patrick Harris for Count Olaf?

Count Olaf could be played by Neil Patrick Harris in Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of A Series Of Unfortunate Events

Netflix’s adaptation of A Series Of Unfortunate Events has quite possibly found its Count Olaf. How I Met Your Mother, Gone Girl and 2015 Oscars star Neil Patrick Harris is reportedly in talks to portray the immoral adoptive father – presumably in a variety of disguises – in the upcoming series.

If he takes the part, he’ll be stepping into the shoes of Jim Carrey, who did a fine job portraying Lemony Snicket’s orphan-harassing creation in the 2004 movie version. It’s worth mentioning that Harris has comedic villainous form of his own, having starred in Joss Whedon’s web series Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.

This casting rumour has originated from The Hollywood Reporter, who have certainly hit the nail right on the head with their speculation »

Neil Patrick Harris Is Count Olaf in Netflix's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'

16 January 2016 2:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When it comes to getting a new TV show off the ground, any production has its ups and downs, and sometimes they come at the same time. Mark Hudis, known for his work on HBO's hit vampire series True Blood, has just exited as Showrunner on the highly anticipated TV series adaptation of Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events. Coming to Netflix later this year, the bad news was met with good when Neil Patrick Harris was announced as the show's evil lead Count Olaf.

Count Olaf will be Neil Patrick Harris's first major TV role since leaving How I Met Your Mother in 2014, where he played bad boy Barney. His new character, originated by Jim Carrey in the 2004 big screen adaptation Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, will be quite the departure. At this time, no replacement has been named for Mark Hudis. Netflix is refusing to comment on either matter. »

Neil Patrick Harris Is in Talks to Play Count Olaf in Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate — Wait for It — Events

16 January 2016 7:02 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Neil Patrick Harris — actor, magician, probably not evil — might just play Count Olaf, the actor, con artist, and villain in Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of Lemony Sniket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Harris is in talks to follow in the exaggerated footsteps of Jim Carrey and play the man who adopts and torments Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after their parents die in a fire. The news comes as the series has also lost its showrunner, Mark Hudis, and is on the hunt for new one, who surely won’t disappear under mysterious circumstances. The adaptation of the 13-book series is set for a 13-episode order, each of which will hopefully teach viewers fun new vocabulary words, such as “ersatz,” “austere,” and “sizable TV contract.” »

Neil Patrick Harris Joins Netflix’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events

15 January 2016 6:43 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in 2004, Lemony Snicket’s massively popular A Series Of Unfortunate Events novels (well, the first three anyways) were adapted for the big screen. Unfortunately, the results were rather underwhelming and so, the rest of the books never made it into theatres. Fast forward to the present day and Netflix is now giving the source material a shot with a 13 episode series.

Development on the project has been quite for a while, but this week we got a major update, as THR broke the news that Neil Patrick Harris has signed on to star as the villainous Count Olaf. For those unfamiliar with the novels, Olaf is a distant relative of the Baudelaire children and takes care of them when their parents die in a fire. However, he has ulterior motives and as it turns out, he’s not quite who he says he is.

Though Snicket’s novels are quite dark at times, »
