America is lacking one crucial thing for zombie survival, according to George Rr Martin

13 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Everyone binge watches “The Walking Dead,” even “Game of Thrones” author George Rr Martin. After recently power through a marathon of 14 episodes — during which Netflix no doubt passive-aggressively asked if he was still watching half a dozen times — Martin spoke with Entertainment Weekly about why America is in such shambles post-zombie outbreak. “Castles! Whatever is happening in the United States during “The Walking Dead,” I’m sure they’re a lot better off in England because they’re in castles. […] No way is a zombie [getting through]— medieval siege armies couldn’t break castles with conventional artillery, and zombies don’t use artillery. Zombies don’t build trebuchets. They don’t build siege towers. There is no way they can break into a well-defended castle.” Gif Credit: AMC This jives with the theory laid out by Max Brooks in “World War Z.” In the novel, the British Isles survive the undead outbreak mostly unscathed. »

Luke Owen sits down with Doc of the Dead director Alexandre O. Philippe

Out on DVD and VOD on Monday, Doc of the Dead is the most comprehensive look at the zombie sub-genre within horror. To celebrate its release, Luke Owen sat down with director Alexandre O. Philippe to talk about the documentary, his thoughts on the genre and what’s the worst zombie movie he’s ever seen…

Lo: The film got a great reception at last year’s Film4 FrightFest (read our review here), how has the reception to the movie been for you?

Aop: It’s been great you know. We premiered at SXSW back in March and I’ve been pretty much traveling the world ever since! It’s been pretty non-stop. And the response has been great across the board and it’s been great to share it with fans and audiences around the world. »

Thn Interview: ‘Generation Of Z’ Producer Charlie McDermott

24 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Who doesn’t love a good zombie? Once the unloved cousin of the monster realm, they are now firmly at the top of the chain, having managed to topple the resident King, the vampire. Shows like The Walking Dead have taken the world by storm and have us all contemplating how we ourselves would survive a zombie apocalypse. Over recent years companies have capitalised on our new found obsession and a string of zombie experiences have popped up everywhere. You can roam an abandoned shopping mall and live out your Dawn Of The Dead fantasies, or you can run amok in various UK cities as part of 2.8 Hours. Both of these experiences focus on a chase and tag element.

Of course not everyone is active enough to try running away from the re-animated dead. With this in mind a team from New Zealand have come up with the perfect alternative – Generation of Z: Apocalypse. »

This week in TV news: The Academy hands down rulings on hourlong comedies

21 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.

One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

Steve McQueen To Direct Limited Series Codes Of Conduct For HBO

20 March 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since 2013, Hunger helmer Steve McQueen has been developing a project for HBO that the cable giant has since qualified for a limited series order. McQueen will direct all six episodes of Codes Of Conduct, which Deadline dubs “an exploration of a young African-American man’s experience entering New York high society, with a past that might not be what it seems.” The director collaborated on the scripts with World War Z co-writer Matthew Michael Carnahan.

Casting on the series has already begun with a small-yet-impressive bunch of names now attached. Paul Dano, Helena Bonham Carter and Rebecca Hall will co-star with newcomer Devon Terrell set to lead. Codes Of Conduct will revolve around Terrell’s character, Beverly Snow, who is described as “a young man from Queens as talented as he is ambiguous. His self-confidence will enable him to break into the social circles of Manhattan’s elite, testing the »

As if you didn't have enough reasons already to tune into HBO, maybe this one well get you to add the channel to your cable package or sign up for their new streaming service: Steve McQueen has a limited series on the way. Deadline reports that HBO has given an order to "Codes Of Conduct," a six-episode limited series that will be fully directed by McQueen, from a script co-written with Matthew Michael Carnahan ("World War Z"). Starring newcomer Devon Turrell, Paul Dano, Helena Bonham Carter, and Rebecca Hall, the show centers on Queens youth Beverly Snow, who breaks into Manhattan's elite high society, a world much different than the one he was born into.

AMC's 'Preacher' Casts Ruth Negga as Female Lead Tulip

18 March 2015 6:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Dig Review – TV USA – Plus March 19th Preview

17 March 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I blame Lost for most of the problems with Dig, USA‘s new investigation thriller, but frankly, I blame Lost for a lot of things.

The show is the latest entrant in the limited-run mystery genre, and revolves around Peter Connelly (Jason Isaacs), an FBI agent working in Israel, finding himself caught up in a bizarre conspiracy that spans the globe. Having caught sight of a redhead, who sticks out like a sore thumb among the crowds in Israel, Connelly follows her to the dig she’s been working on. It’s a massive archeological exploration of caves under the city. They stumble on an odd religious rite being performed by people who aren’t supposed to be there.

It isn’t as odd as it might seem to viewers, because we’ve already been introduced to some very “old school” Jews (no, really, really old school) who are fantastically »

Stephen King's The Jaunt Could be Next for Mama Director

16 March 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Plan B, the company behind last year's zombie hit World War Z, has optioned Stephen King's teleportation novella "The Jaunt" for feature film production.

Andy Muschietti and Barbara Muschietti, who were behind the horror film Mama, will develop with Andy in line to direct.

King first published the short story in Twilight Zone Magazine before it became a short-story in his famous "Skeleton Crew" anthology which also included a ton of great stories including The Mist and The Raft.

Stephen King's The Jaunt Gets Optioned

13 March 2015 3:21 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Brad Pitt’s Plan B is building a reputation for shepherding bold, creative projects into life. Selma, 12 Years A Slave, Killing Me Softly and Moneyball have all been lovingly nursed through production with varying degrees of success, and it looks likely that Stephen King’s The Jaunt will join World War Z in representing the more fantastical end of the production house’s slate. Mama duo Andy Muschietti and Barbara Muschietti are now attached to the project.A short story originally published by King in Twilight Zone Magazine, The Jaunt found a home and a fanbase in 1985 short story anthology, Skeleton Crew (also the home of The Mist). The premise, set in the 24th century, sees a dad explaining the basis of ‘jaunting’, a teleportation device with which he’ll transport his family to Mars. So far, so About Time meets Total Recall. Of course, things can – and do – go horribly wrong in the process. »
