Published by DC imprint Vertigo and launching in 2002, the ongoing series ran for 60 issues through to 2008 and “revolves around Yorick Brown — the last surviving human with a Y chromosome — and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand. The series follows escape artist Yorick after the mysterious plague as he sets out to find what might have wiped out the world’s male chromosomes.”
There have been several attempts to bring Y: The Last Man to the big screen, with D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) attached to direct in 2008 and Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia (Jericho) in talks in 2012, although both projects failed to materialise.

A screen adaptation of this popular graphic novel has been "in the works" since, at least, 2008; although little progress has been made since then. Last we wrote about it, 2+ years ago, it was announced that New Line Cinema had made the project one of its "first priorities." Further, New Line was said to have been "very pleased" with a draft of the script from Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia (both former "Jericho" writers), and the hunt had begun for a director. Not long after that, a director was hired for the job: Dan Trachtenberg, primarily a director of commercials, who apparently has geek-cred, previously making »

Not long after that, a director was hired for the job: Dan Trachtenberg, primarily a director of commercials, who apparently has geek-cred, previously making a short film based on the video game "Portal," which went viral, generating over 10 million hits on YouTube alone. Nothing came of any of that news, as, last fall (2014), Brian K. Vaughan (creator of the comic) announced that the movie was dead. But it looks like an. »

As a WWE Network Special Beast In The East was somewhat of a smart move. Although aired live at a time too early for America, the nature of the online service meant it could be re-watched at anytime. Somewhat of a glorified house show though, was it any good?
The first thing noticeable about WWE Beast In The East is the difference in style from normal WWE programming. It may have been a little bit of culture shock for WWE fans unaware of how Japanese crowds worked, and how they ran their matches. The beauty of the event though was that WWE showed the respect for the country they were in and ran the show for the Japanese crowd and not so much for the rest of the world.
In this respect there were differences in the matches, for one a lack of run ins makes for a refreshing change. »

Co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro has been elevated to exec producer, alongside former co-exec producer Stacy Rukeyser who was also upped to Ep for the second season, which returns in 2016 with 10 new episodes.

The addition of Barbee and the elevated exec producing team will without a doubt help support Noxon’s work on the critically-acclaimed hit show, as she’s one the most in-demand showrunners, as of late.

WWE is broadcasting the live event on July 4 that is taking place in Tokyo, Japan with a Nxt Title match where Kevin Owens will defend the gold against Finn Balor.
The supercard will also showcase the in-ring return of Brock Lesnar, who as reported was originally set to face Kofi Kingston but speculation is running rampant that he will now face Chris Jericho in a dream match.
It’s the first time WWE air what is essentially a house show on WWE Network.
The event will air at 6:30amET on Saturday July 4 although that’s 8:30pmET in Tokyo and the show is set to start at 7pm Tokyo time. What that means is they are either only going to show parts of the show or they are going to air it delayed by a few hours. There’s no word on who the commentary »

Lifetime on Monday night revealed an UnREAL (yet probably all-too-real) look at the making of a Bachelor-like reality-tv show. Will you make a second date with the freshman drama?
RelatedSummer TV Calendar: Hannibal, Liars, Mistresses and 105+ Other Dates to Save
UnREAL stars Shiri Appleby (Life UneXpected) as Rachel, a top-shelf producer who hit rock bottom during her previous stint on Everlasting, the show-within-a-show, by drunkenly crashing its finale, tipping off a finalist that she was about to get dumped and for good measure driving off in the winning couple’s getaway convertible.
Unforgettable is undergoing another casting change as it prepares to return, now on A&E, for its fourth season later this year.
Skeet Ulrich (Jericho) will play Eddie Martin, the husband of Poppy Montgomery’s Carrie, TVGuide.com is reporting. The role, first introduced in the Season 3 finale, was originally played by Michael Dempsey (Guiding Light).
The addition of Ulrich is merely the latest in a long line of casting shake-ups for the former CBS drama. Not only are Jane Curtin, Tawny Cypress and Dallas Roberts not returning as series regulars, »
I attended the 2015 Texas Frightmare Weekend the same way I do every year. This year I decided to come up with a plan of attack for my interviews and convention coverage. One of the main themes of this year's Texas Frightmare Weekend was the Scream films. I decided to ask all the actors at the event a two-part question that was relevant to the Scream theme: "What's your favorite scary movie and why?"
The first interview I posted from Texas Frightmare Weekend 2015 was with Star Wars voice actor Joseph Gatt for "May the 4th Be With You" and "Revenge of the 5th" Days. I think it's only fitting to follow up that timely post with the next sensible one. I had the opportunity to pose the question to Scream's Billy Loomis himself, Skeet Ulrich. Aside from the original movie that kickstarted that franchise, he's also appeared in The Craft, »

With news of his departure from Tna after a nearly decade long tenure, the name Samoa Joe is making headlines in the world of wrestling once again. The fact that he has informed all independent promoters that he will no longer be accepting bookings come April has fueled rampant speculation that he is finally making the move to WWE, something his fans have been clamoring for for years.
Joe was one of the bedrocks of Tna wrestling, but the promotion only seemed to utilize him effectively during a very short portion of his nine year career with the struggling company. Outside of his compelling feud with Kurt Angle and some outstanding matches with guys like Aj Styles and Christopher Daniels, it always felt like he had more to offer than what the Tna braintrust was able to come up with – a problem that has plagued the majority of their talents. »
