The 1994 sci-fi action-thriller Timecop is getting the reboot treatment at Universal Pictures. The studio is seeking writers to craft a completely re-imagined concept and story. Marc Shmuger (We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks) and Tom McNulty (The Watch) are producing.
Jean-Claude Van Damme starred in the original as a security company agent who regulates time travel. He tangles with a corrupt politician (Ron Silver) with ties to his past. Jean-Claude Van Damme will not be a part of this project.
The original is based on the Dark Horse Comics series created by Mike Richardson and Mark Verheiden. Mike Richardson went on to produce films such as Hellboy, 30 Days of Night, and R.I.P.D., while Mark Verheiden has made his mark on the small screen, producing shows such as Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, and Falling Skies. There is no word whether they will be involved in the reboot.

Ugh. Here's the full trailer for Marvel's new animated series Avengers Assemble, and it just looks like an all-around bad show. You can actually watch the first episode on iTunes for free by clicking here. I wasn't able to sit through the whole thing. I found it annoying. I'm not a big fan of the tone, dialogue, and poor animation. I'm not sure why they didn't use the same team that brought us Earth's Mightiest Heroes because that was a fun show. My kids even enjoyed watching it, but they didn't take to Avengers Assemble either. They lost interest faster than I did, so Marvel is obviously doing something wrong because it didn't hit with my little fan girls, and it didn't hit with me either.

Kiss of the Damned will be heading to Blu-ray and DVD on July 23rd, and we have the full list of bonus features, along with a look at the cover art.
“With her narrative feature debut, Xan Cassavetes (Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession) has crafted a stylish and sensory visual and aural experience that recalls the best of smart and racy European genre films from the 60s and 70s. Kiss Of The Damned is the story of Djuna (Joséphine de La Baume), a beautiful vampire who tries to resist the advances of the handsome, human screenwriter Paulo (Milo Ventimiglia) but eventually gives in to temptation.

Mike Tindall, who is married to William's cousin, Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips's daughter Zara Phillips, says father-to-be Prince William - whom he calls "Willy" - will be "outstanding" as a dad, "while Kate is a natural mother," he adds. The rugby player told the Daily Mirror, "It's great for them. The whole family is really excited about the baby. I think everyone's excited. I'm so happy for those two. They'll be great parents."

Princess Diana of Themyscira can’t seem to catch a break. After David E. Kelley’s version of the D.C. comic book superheroine for NBC went down in spectacular flames a few years back, the CW decided to try their hand at cracking the character, having achieved great success with another D.C. superhero, “Arrow”. But if you’ve been keeping track of the CW’s recent pilot orders and failed to notice a “Wonder Woman” TV show (or “Amazon” as it’s also being called) among them, then you’re not the only one. The show wasn’t given a pilot order by the network, and that’s apparently because they didn’t cotton to the original script by Allan Heinberg. In fact, they hated the damn thing so much, Heinberg is no longer involved with the show’s development. Instead, the network is putting the show back »

"The Office" ended its eight-year run on Thursday night, in a cute finale that saw the wedding of a fan favorite couple, the return of Michael Scott and a perfect sendoff for the rest of the Dunder Mifflin crew.So, how'd it all end? See our favorite moments from the series finale below. 1.) Michael Scott is back! Steve Carell returned for the show's final episode, staying to the sidelines but still packing an emotional punch.

And while Holly (Amy Ryan) didn't come with him, we learned the couple now have a couple kids of their own and Michael's a very proud papa -- so proud he needs two phones because he's taken so many photos of them. »

Warning: This recap contains major spoilers from Thursday’s series finale of The Office. Read on at your own risk!
Though it was long in coming, The Office‘s emotional final episode went by too quickly and was, at times, hard to handle (that’s what she said).

The 75-minute episode capped nine seasons with laugh-out-loud moments and tender tributes — a job almost as tough as medalling in Flonkerton or fulfilling the duties of Assistant (to the) Regional Manager.
The episode contained too many great jokes, throwaway »

The CW is still plowing ahead with their Wonder Woman prequel Amazon. The network has hired writer Aron Eli Coleite (Heroes) to redevelop the script. CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed, “We're waiting for the script to come in; we haven't seen it yet. We are preparing to pilot it off-cycle should the script »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heinberg has been replaced by "Heroes" writer Aron Eli Coleite on the rewrite. "It is being redeveloped. We're waiting for the script to come in; we haven't seen it yet," CW President Mark Pedowitz told reporters after the network's 2013 upfront presentation. "We are preparing to pilot it off-cycle should the script be what we want it to be. We do not want to produce something that doesn't work for that particular character -- it is the trickiest of all the DC characters to get done."

You know the space at your local Barnes and Noble where the graphic-novel section bleeds into the young-adult section? This is the place where The CW lives. I like to imagine that the network has installed surveillance cameras in the spines of all those unsellable copies of Chris Ware’s Building Stories so its execs can spy on their target audience, see what their buying, and develop accordingly. The geeky, young, female-skewing weblet announced today that it will add three new dramas and reorganize its schedule to use existing successful franchises like Arrow and Supernatural to build hits and stronger nights. »

She may rise again. The Wonder Woman origin drama Amazon is in active redevelopment at the CW. The project was originally written by Allan Heinberg last season. Despite doing some preliminary casting on the lead while the script was still being written, the network ultimately didn’t give it a pilot order, instead rolling it to off-season. A new writer, Heroes alum Aron Eli Coleite, was brought in. Now “we’re waiting for the script to come in,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said following the network’s upfront presentation today. “We do not want to produce something that doesn’t work for that character. It is the trickiest of DC characters to get done.” If the network likes the script, the project will be ordered as an off-cycle pilot. As for The Selection, it is “unlikely” the property will be re-visited again after two failed pilots, the second of which »

An Amazon story may still surface on The CW, as the network’s “origin story” series about Wonder Woman is being redeveloped.
Speaking with reporters on Thursday after unveiling The CW’s 2013-14 line-up — which includes the new dramas The Originals, The Tomorrow People, Star Crossed, The 100 and Reign — network boss Mark Pedowitz said, “Oh god, yes,” when asked if the superheroine series is still in play.
“It is being redeveloped,” Pedowitz said, “and we’re waiting »

Star Trek fans everywhere have been watching, sharing and re-watching The Challenge, a sly Audi ad that, as a comedy vehicle, comfortably seats a pair of mismatched Spocks: Leonard Nimoy, the television and sci-fi icon, and his on-screen heir, Zachary Quinto, who wears the ears in Star Trek Into Darkness.
They are trash-talking frenemies in the mini-movie, but Trek producer Bryan Burke says that in grand Spock tradition there’s a vast emotion hidden behind that frosty artifice.”Their relationship is not a working relationship at all,” Burke said. ”They’re family.”
As Hollywood relationships go, the bond between Nimoy and Quinto is an anomaly. »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the third announced earlier today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on ABC.
The network is changing up some of its serialized dramas - removing random repeats in favor of two "uninterrupted runs" of twelve episodes each (one in the fall, one in the spring) for shows like "Once Upon A Time," "Grey’s Anatomy," "Scandal" and "Revenge". The large gaps between the two half-seasons will be bridged by "limited series" designed around only 12-13 episode seasons.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the high-profile "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" rip-off "Gothica", McG's rip-off of Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet" entitled "Westside", the series based on Disneyland's Big Thunder Mountain ride, the Annie Potts-led "Murder in Manhattan" about »
