Chris Evans Joins "Jekyll" Mini-Series Remake

19 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Chris Evans could well be the new Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but not in the way you might think.

The "Captain America" star is said to be in talks for the title role in Lionsgate's "Jekyll," a remake of the 2007 British mini-series which served as a contemporary update of Robert Louis Stevenson's tale.

"Sherlock" and "Doctor Who" producer Steven Moffat created the original which starred James Nesbitt as Dr. Henry Jackman, a married man with a family who tries to keep the dangerous Mr. Hyde element of his personality under control thanks to modern technology.

At the same time an ancient organisation with limitless wealth and power is monitoring their every move. Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry are adapting the script from the original miniseries while Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman will produce.

The project isn't to be confused with a potential spin-off film that's a part of »

‘Doctor Who’s’ Jenna Coleman Embodies the Vivacious and Very Short Queen ‘Victoria’

28 July 2016 5:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jenna Coleman is bringing the Victorian era to life on PBS.

The former “Doctor Who” companion plays the famed British monarch from the moment she becomes queen at the tender age of 18 in Masterpiece’s upcoming eight-part miniseries “Victoria.” Although Queen Victoria lived in the 19th century, more is known about her than many other historical figures, because she was an avid diarist and left a colorful paper trail of her thoughts and dreams.

“Her vivacious nature comes out in the page,” Coleman told reporters at the Television Critics Association on Thursday. The diaries included many all-caps and underlined portions. “What I found most interesting was her sketch work,” Coleman added. “She was quite a prolific watercolorist,”  Portraits figured regularly in Queen Victoria’s work along with landscapes. She as also a fan of the theater.

Newswire: Chris Evans might unleash his evil side in Lionsgate’s new Jekyll movie

28 July 2016 5:04 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Deadline is reporting that McU star and perfect-toothed goodness factory Chris Evans is in talks to unleash his still-probably-pretty-cheerful dark side on a planned film adaptation of the BBC TV miniseries Jekyll. Evans would play Tom Jackman, a modern-day descendent of Dr. Henry Jekyll, forced to share a body and a life with a super-powered evil side that’s the result of his distant ancestor’s famous experiments. (Jackman was played by James Nesbitt in the six-episode British show, created by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat.) Evans is currently attached to Lionsgate’s film version of the series, and will presumably also play Jackman’s sexier, more dangerous Hyde persona if the movie moves forward.

Lionsgate’s Jekyll shouldn’t be confused with another adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson novel that’s currently in the works. Universal is reportedly prepping a Jekyll film of its own as part of »

27 July 2016 4:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For those captivated by the first seven installments of the UK anthology series “Black Mirror,” there’s an awful lot more to come. Today at Netflix’s TCA press day, executive producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones promised that the upcoming Season 3 — premiering October 21 — would maintain that “special ‘Black Mirror’-y unpleasantness,” but also a wider variety of tones across the six new stand-alone installments.

Why ‘The Crown’ Went To America To Find Its Winston Churchill

27 July 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Winston Churchill is one of Britain’s most internationally famous figures; a man who epitomizes England beyond the realm of the royals. He’s thus a prominent figure in Netflix’s upcoming drama “The Crown,” which tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II’s ascendance to the throne. But when it came to casting, writer Peter Morgan and director Stephen Daldry went with John Lithgow — an undisputed star, but also an American.

Morgan’s reasons for that made a lot of sense, as revealed at the TCA Summer Press Tour this morning.

“There’s a point where every Knight of the Realm does his Winston Churchill,” Morgan said. Thus, within the British acting community, “there’s a little bit of Churchill fatigue.”

Morgan credited casting director Nina Gold with the suggestion of Lithgow, who he described as “so startling and imaginative that it was an unanimous yes.”

‘Stranger Things’: Season 2 Plans & How David Lynch Could Control the Ending

27 July 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It seems like more and more inspirations for “Stranger Things” are being discovered every day, and Wednesday’s notable — and confirmed — influences is none other than David Lynch. And he could factor into the series’ finale, too.

“We love David Lynch,” co-creator Matt Duffer said during the series’ TCA panel. “We’re big David Lynch fans. […] So many of these guys, we grew up watching and idolizing. They were big influences on us. They’re part of our DNA now, I think.”

“What connects Lynch to Spielberg is […] how ordinary people encounter extraordinary — or strange — things,” Ross Duffer added. “That was really the threat that connected all of our favorite things in the world.”

“People like David Lynch and Clive Barker […] showed how weird that stuff is,” Matt said. “If you encountered something like another dimension, it would be beyond comprehension. So [seeing their vision of it] is why this stuff is still with us. »

Netflix Boss Says Don’t Believe the Ratings You See for His Shows

27 July 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ted Sarandos is not impressed with the ratings he’s seeing reported for Netflix.

In recent months, both Symphony Advanced Media and Nielsen have released data that purports to tally how many people are watching Netflix series. But Sarandos pointed out that the services claimed very different numbers for “Orange is the New Black.”

“Both Symphony and Nielsen claim accuracy,” Sarandos said, before pointing out that one service’s “Oitnb” viewership was two times the other’s. “Either number, if true, would be great for Netflix. Especially since it’s only U.S. viewing and it’s only for the first 35 days of release.”

Sarandos points out that ratings, and reporting on ratings, is an “important piece of the business puzzle for ad-supported networks, for sure. But subscriber growth, not advertising, drives our revenues. We’ll do great by attracting more members… The performance of any given title in the U. »

‘The Get Down’: How Shameik Moore Had to Relearn Hip-Hop for Baz Luhrmann’s New Netflix Series

27 July 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann wasn’t the only person on set who had to get schooled on hip-hop for his Netflix musical drama “The Get Down.”

Its young stars, including “Dope” breakout Shameik Moore, had to relearn what hip-hop is in the context of 1970s New York, when the drama takes place. Moore, who is a rapper, singer and dancer in his own right realized that all of his moves were wrong for the period.

The show created a hip-hop bootcamp where world-renowned choreographers and brothers Rich and Tone Talauega recruited B-boys Phantom and Samo to teach Moore how to breakdance. The lessons were all-encompassing: “The thing about the show is not just acting,” said Jimmy Smits at the Television Critics Association press tour Wednesday. “The had to relearn hip-hop, how to stand, how to move —“

“— how to hold a mic,” chimed in music and culture writer Nelson George. “There »

‘Arrested Development’ Creator Mitch Hurwitz Has Created a 22-Episode Season 4 Remix

27 July 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Arrested Development” fans anxiously waiting for Season 5 may be in for a bonus treat: A complete remix of 2013’s Season 4 now exists.

“Arrested” creator Mitch Hurwitz has gone in and totally re-cut the show’s inaugural Netflix season, something that has been hinted at in the past – but is now done. Originally produced as 15 episodes of varying time lengths (between 31 minutes and 38 minutes), the new edit is now more like a traditional TV season, made up of 22 episodes at 22 minutes each.

Besides the length change, Hurwitz re-edited the show to put all of the show’s characters in each episode. Originally, each episode of Season 4 mostly focused on an individual character’s journey.

“It really works!” Hurwitz said. “It’s totally different storytelling with all of these millions of pieces.”

The Flash Director May Helm Captain Marvel

25 July 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Did Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander just let slip the name of the filmmaker who may be helming the upcoming Captain Marvel movie? It certainly seems like it.

After hearing over the weekend that Brie Larson was confirmed to be playing the titular hero, fans were left wondering who’d be sitting in the director’s chair. Rumors have surfaced in recent months pointing to Elizabeth Wood, Jennifer Kent and Niki Caro being frontrunners for the job, and now we have one more name to add to the list.

According to Alexander, Rachel Talalay may be in contention to direct the film.

I’m not on the list but I believe @rtalalay is and I couldn’t imagine a better director for it https://t.co/JeiXzvufP4

For those unfamiliar with the director, she’s worked on episodes of both The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, »

The Flash And Legends Of Tomorrow Director Being Eyed For Captain Marvel?

25 July 2016 4:44 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Bleeding Cool has spotted a Tweet from Punisher: War Zone and Supergirl director Lexi Alexander which seemingly reveals yet another filmmaker who is being considered by Marvel Studios to take the helm of Captain Marvel. Confirming that she personally isn't in talks to take on the gig, Alexander says that Rachel Talalay is. She's a director who has worked on Doctor Who, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. It's also thought that she'll take the helm of the first episode of Sherlock season four.  Talalay also helmed cult favourite movie Tank Girl and the relatively obscure Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. There's a possibility that Alexander has got her wires crossed here and that Marvel may have already passed on Talalay, but she's certainly a very interesting candidate. We'll just have to wait and see. For now, Inside Out's Meg LeFauve is writing the screenplay alongside Guardians of the Galaxy »

Rob Leane Jul 25, 2016

John Barrowman has a phone call today to talk about bringing Doctor Who's spin-off Torchwood back to TV....

San Diego Comic-Con 2016 unleashed a lot of new trailers for major comic book movies (see: the front page of this site), meaning that other bits of news threatened to sneak under the radar. One of these stories has come to our attention today: John Barrowman has teased that Torchwood could return to TV.

"I have a phone conversation on Monday to see how we can get it back on television," Zap2It has quoted Barrowman as saying. In a bid to convince everyone he was serious, Barrowman added, "The fans know me well enough, I’m only going to say it if I mean it and believe it."

And how can fans help? "If you really believe in Torchwood, get the comic [there's a Titan series based around the show out now]. Get this series going, it’s like a Kickstarter. »

[Fantasia Review] Tank 432

24 July 2016 6:36 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Director Ben Wheatley is showing his eye for talent by putting his name behind a guy who’s worked closely with him since 2011’s Kill List. A filmmaker in his own right, camera operator Nick Gillespie has stayed by Wheatley’s side on every subsequent project up to and including the forthcoming Free Fire. This time around it’s he who’s providing the claustrophobic thriller as writer and director of Tank 432 (formerly known as Belly of the Bulldog). It’s a doozy too—all mood, atmosphere, and mystery with our own confusion about the action mirrored in those onscreen. All they know is that they have orders. Extract their prisoners, survive the war, and write everything down. But while they know what to do, the why seems universally out of reach.

Think The Maze Runner, but for adults. I’m not saying The Maze Runner is specifically for children, »

Comic-Con: ‘Timeless’ stars on the ambitions and the guts of sending a black guy back in time

24 July 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Timeless is among many time travel shows on air this year, when turn-back-the-clock TV seems to be the hottest new trend. But it’s the only series that’s daring to deal with sending a black character to eras where it was not at all fun to be black. Malcolm Barrett (Better off Ted) plays Rufus, a scientist who can pilot the time machine that goes back to the Hindenburg disaster in the first episode of Timeless, which premieres on NBC this October. Rufus is hesitant to join the small crew tasked with chasing a suspected terrorist back to May 6, 1937. “I am black,” he tells his superior. “There is literally no place in American history that will be awesome for me.” But he goes back anyway. There’s a reason he’s best for the job, a reason still mysterious to viewers upon the end of the pilot episode. And »

‘Family Guy’ Won’t Do Any More ‘Star Wars’ Parodies, and Here’s Why

23 July 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don’t expect to see any more “Star Wars” parodies from Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy.”

The show produced three “Star Wars” homages (2007’s “Blue Harvest,” 2009’s “Something, Something, Something Dark Side” and 2010’s “It’s a Trap!”) several years ago. But that was back before Disney acquired Lucasfilm and jumpstarted the franchise.

“The new regime is a little more difficult to deal with,” executive producer Alec Sulkin said. “Before we were just dealing with Lucasfilm. Seth [MacFarlane] had a good relationship with them. It’s not that Seth has a bad relationship with Disney, but they’re a bit more rigid.”

Executive producer Rich Appel said it was understandable, as “they’re a little more careful now that they’re rolling out new movies.”
