As many thinkpieces and industry veterans have no doubt told you, the small screen—both on actual television and streaming services like Netflix and Amazon—is where the future of mature and thoughtful storytelling lies. Naturally, many filmmakers have migrated over from the big screen world and that trend continues into the next year with filmmakers like Cary Fukunaga and Sam Mendes. First up, is a thirty-second teaser for the Showtime supernatural series “Penny Dreadful” that’s being shepherded by the “Skyfall” duo of Sam Mendes and John Logan.

We all have our demons.

Still, chances are ours aren’t as warped as Dr. Frankenstein’s, Dorian Gray’s or the ones inflicting the “Dracula” characters.

Showtime’s teaser trailer for John Logan’s “Penny Dreadful” about these twisted literary figures hints at these problems with enough Jesus and occult references to make it feel as if  “American Horror Story: Asylum” were set in Victorian England.

The “psychosexual thriller” stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Timothy Dalton and is produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions and Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris of Neal Street. “The Orphanage’s” Juan Antonio Bayona helmed the first two episodes.

The series will bow this spring, although no exact release date has been announced.

'World War Z' sequel lands an 'Impossible' director

11 December 2013 6:38 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Juan Antonio Bayona, the Spanish filmmaker who directed The Impossible, the disaster movie about the 2004 Asian tsunami starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, will direct Brad Pitt in the sequel to World War Z. A source close to the zombie project confirmed the news, first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Max Brooks’ novel and planned as a franchise, World War Z overcame production complications to become a summer blockbuster, grossing $540 million worldwide, and a solid critical hit. Director Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) and Pitt didn’t always see eye-to-eye, and the original ending was trashed, requiring dramatic and expensive reshoots. »

The Orphanage Director Set to Take on World War Z Sequel

11 December 2013 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Juan Antonio Bayona, the man behind the Guillermo Del Toro produced Spanish horror thriller 'The Orphanage', has been chosen as the director of the upcoming 'World War Z' sequel. Paramount Pictures signed up the director to helm the big action follow-up project that will see Brad Pitt ('Se7en') both return to star and in a producers capacity. The original movie, directed by Marc Forster, came with endless difficulties and production troubles but still made a mint at the box office hence why a sequel was greenlit almost immediately. 'World War Z' is based on the novel of the same name by author Max Brooks. Unusually it appears that a director has been drafted in ahead of any writers being tapped to pen the script. The last we heard from Pitt is that a bag of ideas was being currently thrown around. »

World War Z sequel taps Impossible director

11 December 2013 1:47 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Juan Antonio Bayona will direct the World War Z sequel.

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have signed the Impossible director to its next zombie apocalypse film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Marc Forster-directed World War Z became a surprise hit this summer despite well-documented issues that required a last-minute rewrite and reshoots.

Brad Pitt starred as a Un employee travelling the world in an attempt to stem the zombie plague.

The film's original ending was reportedly far more open-ended than it became after the reworking.

Bayona has met with Pitt, who will produce again through his Plan B banner.

The director previously worked on the acclaimed 2012 tsunami film The Impossible and the Guillermo del Toro-produced The Orphanage.
