12 October 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel may have missed out on showing off their upcoming Daredevil series at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, but the studio made up for it in spades this weekend when they brought the Man Without Fear to Nycc. Not only did we finally get our first look at Charlie Cox in costume as the titular vigilante, but we now know who Rosario Dawson will be playing and also received information on four exciting new cast additions: Ayelet Zurer, Bob Gunto, Toby Moore and Vondie Curtis Hall.

Zurer, best known for her role in Angels & Demons and for playing Superman’s Kryptonian birth mother in last year’s Man of Steel, will play Vanessa Marianna, an art dealer who becomes the wife of notorious crime boss Wilson Fisk a.k.a.

French TV Dramas Gain Popularity Around the World

8 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the global game of TV program distribution, France is a rising player.

The land where only a few years ago U.S. series monopolized the primetime airwaves is now becoming one of Europe’s top creators of international drama skeins.

Not long ago French industryites were lamenting the aging of the local talent pool and the lack of homegrown, upscale series. Today, as the second edition of Direct to Series — a two-day confab and showcase in L.A. on Oct. 27-28 — underscores, France has established itself as a fertile ground for innovative narratives, up-and-coming talent and singular settings that, for U.S. and international buyers, represent a viable alternative to Scandinavian drama series.

This globalization trend has been bolstered by the launch of big-scale, globally driven companies like EuropaCorp TV (“Taxi Brooklyn”), Lagardere’s Atlantique (“Transporter”), Newen’s Capa Drama (“Versailles”), Haut et Court TV (“The Returned”), Shine Films »

Filming Begins on Steven Spielberg’s Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks and Disney have announced that principal photography has commenced on Steven Spielberg's untitled Cold War spy thriller starring Tom Hanks.  As we previously reported, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  The film will also star Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda, and will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.  Following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, and The Terminal, this will mark Spielberg's fourth film collaboration with Hanks, and hopefully it will be a fruitful one, especially since they're working from a script by the Coen Brothers.  Hanks and Spielberg's most recent collaboration was as executive producers on HBO's miniseries The Pacific. Hit the jump for the press release. »

2 October 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO and Starbucks announced a free, all-star concert to honor America’s veterans and their families, which will be presented live on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

The “Concert for Valor,” which will be held on the National Mall in Washington D.C.,  will feature Eminem, Jamie Foxx, Dave Grohl, Metallica, John Oliver, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band, as well as special appearances by Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, among others.

HBO will offer its affiliates the opportunity to open the signal, allowing nonsubscribers to view the special to broaden the audience, as it did with its “Comic Relief” specials.

The live event will be executive-produced by Gary Goetzman, Tom Hanks and Joel Gallen, who will also direct.

The idea came from the two companies’ CEOs, who wanted to recognize the heroism of the active people in the military, and raise awareness of the value veterans have brought to society. »

Bryan Cranston Will Go All The Way For HBO

17 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems like an age since we said an emotional farewell to Walter White – the iconic Breaking Bad character that brought Bryan Cranston millions of new fans worldwide. But, despite many opportunities in film having presented themselves – including Argo and Godzilla – along with a Tony-award winning turn on the Broadway stage, it seems the actor has not abandoned the small screen entirely. HBO has acquired the rights to develop the play All The Way for television, and Bryan Cranston is firmly on board.

The role in the play that brought Cranston his Tony award is that of Us President Lyndon B Johnson, and the story centres on his initial, eventful year in office. In the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the plot encompasses the escalation of the Vietnam War, the launch of the Civil Rights Bill, and the election that brought him Johnson his first full term as President. »

16 July 2014 11:58 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Everything Bryan Cranston touches is turning to awards at the moment, not least his theatrical interpretation of Us President Lyndon B. Johnson in All The Way. That stage play, freshly garlanded in Tonys and other such trinkets, has just been picked up by HBO Films and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television.A Broadway debut for Cranston, the play charts the troubled first year of the Johnson administration. There’s the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination, the small matter of Vietnam rumbling on ever more loudly, and the quest to pass a ground-breaking civil rights bill. Oh, and the small matter of an election to win.Plenty, in other words, for the actor to get his teeth into in a TV movie that will be dramatised by original playwright Robert Schenkkan, a writer who clearly has a feel for the corridors of power and Cold War Us foreign policy.

10 Most Expensive TV Shows Of All Time

8 July 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

Hollywood adheres strictly to that old adage “you have to spend money in order to make money”. We all know that film studios are never ones to shy away from exorbitant movie budgets if there is a profit to be made. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t. Plenty of examples out there of movies with overblown budgets that bankrupted entire studios.

The TV industry works in very much the same way but on a smaller scale. When you have to produce up to 25 episodes per year for a show you do not have the luxury of a “one and done” type scenario. Instead, you need to plan ahead if you want your show to be popular, but profitable at the same time.

This can definitely be done. Game of Thrones has showed us that a TV show can have a budget that would make a Lannister blush »

Steven Spielberg Wants Bryan Cranston to Bring All The Way to TV with a Miniseries

9 June 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off a Tony Award for Best Lead Actor in a Play in All the Way, actor Bryan Cranston may be bringing his buzzworthy performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson to the small screen.  Deadline reports that Steven Spielberg is in the process of optioning the stage play for a miniseries adaptation through his Amblin banner, and he wants Cranston to reprise the lead role.  Cranston has been drawing raves on the stage for his performance as Lbj in a story that spans the first year of Johnson’s administration, and it appears that Spielberg sees great potential in bringing the story to a wider television audience.  More after the jump. Deadline notes that it’s currently not clear where the potential All the Way miniseries would end up, but Spielberg has a pretty strong relationship with HBO having produced the Band of Brothers and The Pacific miniseries at the pay cable channel. »
