Legendary TV has acquired the rights to John Scalzi’s novel “Lock In” to adapt into a pilot for a potential series.
The book revolves around a highly contagious virus that causes one percent — or five million — of the U.S. population to become paralyzed but fully aware, while the rest of the infected get nothing more than the flu, fever or headaches. A quarter of a century later, the immobile are able to borrow the bodies of “integrators.” After one of the paralyzed is murdered, the book focuses on two FBI agents who are called in to investigate a case that spirals into something far larger.
Scalzi is currently on a tour to promote the release of “Lock In,” published in August.
The author is known for his science fiction background, having been a former president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and written the “Old »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.
2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are hoping to add some serious girl power to television by developing a "Supergirl" series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Greg Berlanti and Geoff Johns, who both serve as executive producers on The CW's "Arrow" and "The Flash," are attached to the project along with "No Ordinary Family" and "Chuck" writer-producer Ali Adler. In addition, Michael Green is also joining the series, according to E! Online. He has produced such series as "Gotham," "Smallville" and "Heroes," and he penned DC's recent "Supergirl" comics. The untitled project, which will be scripted by Adler, is in the early stages of development, but it's expected to be shopped to networks soon. Supergirl, or Kara Zor-El, was created by Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino, »
Among the plethora of superhero films and television programmes, we’ve heard that Supergirl is the next character lined up for a TV Show!
The man behind the project is Greg Berlanti, a producer who’s so far been behind Arrow (that’s doing rather well), The Flash (that’s coming up) and The Tomorrow People that, well, I believe is doing okay on the smaller circuit.
Supergirl is Superman’s cousin in the DC world and Deadline are reporting that Berlanti is working on the project with Ali Adler, who’s previously written for Glee, Chuck and No Ordinary Family. This project is in the early stages of production and so hasn’t been picked up anywhere yet but seems like the perfect fodder for the likes of Netflix or another streaming service – Would the fan base be big enough for this one – it’s unexpectedly worked for Arrow so who knows! »

There is a new series based on the iconic DC heroine Supergirl in the works at Warner Bros. TV. Greg Berlanti, who produces Arrow and The Flash on The CW, is reportedly tapped to executive-produce. He and Ali Adler, who produced shows like No Ordinary Family and Chuck, are looking to bring a Supergirl series to TV with what is described as a fresh take on the heroine’s origin story. DC’s Geoff Johns, who is also involved with both Arrow and The Flash, is expected to be »

One of I, Frankenstein's biggest sins was that the creature effects, especially with regard to Frankenstein's monster, were pretty run of the mill. Back in the beginning effects artist Vincent J. Guastini had the reins of this bad boy, but unfortunately it was steered out of his hands.
Now Guastini has uploaded an effects/concept reel of what his vision for the film's creatures would have been like. Gotta say it... we like it so much better. What a shock. Check it out for yourselves, and weigh in below.
About I, Frankenstein
From the producers of Underworld, I, Frankenstein follows Frankenstein's monster (Aaron Eckhart) as he becomes involved in a war between two immortal clans. Also starring Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest), Yvonne Strahovski (TV's "Chuck," TV's "Dexter"), Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, »

Really, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”
Written by Jay Chandrasekhar
Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar
Released August 28, 2014 by Amazon
While the Broken Lizard comedy troupe were behind four movies from 1996 to 2006, recent years have seen the group members branching out individually. One particularly prominent member of the group has been Jay Chandrasekhar, who has directed episodes of shows such as Happy Endings, Chuck, and Community. His newest foray into television is the pilot for Really, a show that takes a look at couples and people in various stages of relationships. Looking for a series greenlight, Amazon and the creators have released the pilot online for voting, and it paints the picture of a show that could either be a success or a failure, depending on whether it chooses to focus on its comedic elements or its dramatic ones.
One of the strong points of the show is the »

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has released another story from the Harry Potter universe and it focuses on the backstory of the singing sorceress sensation Celestina Warbeck.
In an article for Today.com, Rowling wrote, "Celestina Warbeck is one of my favourite 'off-stage' characters in the Harry Potter series, and has been part of the Potter world ever since its inception, making an early appearance in the short-lived 'Daily Prophet' series I produced for members of the equally short-lived fan club run by my British publisher, Bloomsbury."
You can read the full story on Pottermore.com, but here's a little taste from it:
Celestina has sometimes lent her name and talents to good causes, such as raisingfunds for St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries with a recording of Puddlemere United's anthem 'Beat Back Those Bludgers, Boys, and Chuck That Quaffle Here'. More controversially, Celestina was vocal in her »

Assaying his return to soaps, Hartley told TV Guide Magazine (which broke the news of his casting), “I don’t care if the job is on daytime or primetime or the web. Hey, give me a good character and someone to listen and I’ll do my acting on a street corner.”
Veteran television and radio announcer Dominick “Don” Pardo, best known as the voice of Saturday Night Live, has died. He was 96.
Pardo passed away Monday evening, an NBC rep confirms to TVLine.
Pardo retired from NBC in 2004, but continued to provide the introductions for SNL — most recently, pre-recording them from his home in Arizona. He had only missed one season of SNL — the show’s seventh — giving him a longer tenure than even Lorne Michaels (who stepped away for five seasons).
“I can’t imagine the show without [Don],” Michaels once said, “and as long as he’s there, I stay young. »
The freshman finale of The Blacklist left us with plenty of unanswered questions — and from the looks of it, Season 2 will pose even more.
NBC has released a handful of photos from the drama’s Season 2 premiere (airing Sept. 22 at 10/9c), and there’s a whooooole lot that we need cleared up.
Among the head-scratchers:

* Where are Liz and Red currently laying low? On one hand, the duo is sitting in plain sight on the front »

Pro wrestler-turned-actor John Cena will battle Brock Lesnar during SummerSlam 2014 in their headlining match this Sunday. But he's not the only WWE star to come from behind the ropes and onto the Hollywood stage with ease. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Stacy Keibler and more wrestling powerhouses have readily transitioned into silver and small screen stardom. Putting his ripped biceps to good use long before starring as the Greek hero Hercules, The Rock got his best-known acting start as the Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns.
