From the 'Strain' Set: Showrunner Carlton Cuse on working with Guillermo del Toro and more

12 July 2014 9:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto, On. With "Lost" (and "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr," if you like) front and center on his resume, Carlton Cuse knows a thing or two relating to fanboys, but that's actually how he originally came to Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's "The Strain" series. "Almost two years ago, I was approached by Wme and asked whether I actually knew this property, 'The Strain' trilogy," Cuse recalls, sitting with a small roundtable of reporters on the Toronto set of "The Strain," which premieres on FX on July 13. "In fact, I had read the first book just as a fanboy, just because I was intrigued by it and loved Guillermo's stuff. I actually had a little bit of a relationship with Chuck Hogan. We had talked at one point about doing something else together. I really loved the book. So Wme said, 'Hey, would you consider meeting with Guillermo? »

CBS Signs Lucrative Netflix Pact For James Patterson Series Zoo

9 July 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the buzzy sci-fi series Extant premiering tonight, high-rated returning fave Under the Dome on its way for later this summer, high-concept thriller Scorpion premiering this fall and James Patterson adaptation Zoo in the cards for the summer of 2015, CBS is in a pretty desirable spot right now. And the good news just keeps coming for the network, with word that CBS just inked a rich deal with streaming service Netflix so that the site can offer Zoo, adapted from the novel by Patterson and Michael Ledwidge, as soon as it finishes airing.

The pact is rumored to be even higher than the $900,000 Amazon is reportedly paying per episode of Under the Dome and Extant (which Netflix wanted as well). Intriguingly, whereas Amazon is able to put episodes of each of those series on its Prime Instant Video service four days after they air, Netflix has also agreed not to »

James Patterson’s Zoo Goes Straight To Series With CBS

2 July 2014 4:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When best-selling author James Patterson published his novel Zoo with Michael Ledwidge in 2012, they instantly has another hit on their hands.

Those plans have now evolved, and Zoo will become a TV series for CBS.

Global in scope, Zoo depicts the world under siege from a wave of violent animal attacks against humans. As the international situation escalates, a young biologist is thrust to the forefront of the battle – working to investigate the pandemic before it is too late for humanity. CBS has ordered the project straight to series, with 13 episodes headed our way in summer 2015.

The adaptation is co-written by Jeff Pinkner (Fringe), Josh Appelbaum (Life On Mars), Andre Nemec (Star-Crossed) and Scott Rosenberg (Life On Mars). The scribes will also executive produce the drama with Patterson himself, »

Jason Momoa Hits The Road To Paloma In New Trailer For His Directorial Debut

6 May 2014 5:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Apparently, Jason Momoa likes road movies. Having previously written and directed the short film, Brown Bag Diaries: Ridin’ In The Blinds In B Minor in 2010, he is now making his feature-length directorial debut with The Road To Paloma. With Momoa (Game Of Thrones, Conan The Barbarian) also taking the starring role, the first trailer for the dramatic thriller has arrived online.

If you had been hoping for something interesting and fresh from this new cinematic voice, then you might as well move along. For here we have the standard, tired tale of a man seeking revenge for the rape and murder of a woman – this time, his mother. As we have come to expect, he takes the law into his own hands, and becomes a fugitive from the FBI. So far, so tedious.

The problem is, we have seen it all before. A female ‘character’ (either onscreen, or as a »

‘Beverly Hills Cop 4′ Happening After All?

5 May 2014 11:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rumours about a fresh sequel to Beverly Hills Cop have been circulating for a few years, but now Paramount have bitten the bullet and announced that a fourth film will hit theatres on March 25th 2016. Eddie Murphy will return as Axel Foley and the oft-mooted Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) is lined up to direct.

A TV pilot was produced with Brandon T.Jackson (Tropic Thunder) starring in what was effectively Son Of Beverly Hills Cop, with Murphy putting in an appearance to wish his offspring well, but a series failed to materialize. The franchise has a patchy history, with Beverly Hills Cop 3 one of the most unusual entries in the canon, being wildly different in tone and story.

Murphy reportedly wanted Bhc 4 to be his screen acting swansong, though whether this would still be the case remains to be seen. Does the world want to see an ageing Axel Foley »

17 March 2014 6:11 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

A few years back we posted a list of some of our favorite Irish actors for St. Patrick’s Day, and it contained pretty much who you’d expect – Liam, Pierce, Colin F., Cillian, Daniel D.L. , Jonathan R.M., an Aidan (Quinn), but enough time has has passed that we have a whole new bumper crop to celebrate. Including another Aidan!

Here are ten more actors we can share our Shamrock Shakes with, and can smile those Irish eyes at us anytime.

31-year-old Jamie grew up in the suburbs of Belfast, Northern Ireland, and is the second cousin (twice removed) of Greer Garson.

Justice League: War launching a shared DC animated continuity

4 February 2014 10:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. latest DC animated movie Justice League: War arrives on shelves today, and much like the New 52-launching Justice League: Origin story arc from which it is based, it seems the direct-to-video feature will launch a shared continuity for the line of DC Universe Animated Original Movies. 

This will definitely be the first salvo in doing new movies that are in continuity with each other," James Tucker, Warner's DC animation supervising producer, tells ComicBookResources. "Our next movie's going to be Son of Batman, and that Batman will be the same Batman that you see in Justice League: War. Basically, we'll have two concurrent series of Justice League movies and Batman movies, and they'll be in continuity with each other. So it's kind of world-building.

Tucker went on to review that the plan going forward is to release two "in-continuity" movies a year and one stand-alone feature (this year's »
