‘Iron Man 3’ Writer Drew Pearce’s Directing Debut ‘Hotel Artemis’ Lands at Ink Factory (Exclusive)

20 June 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hot off the success of the limited series “The Night Manager,” London-based production company Ink Factory is teaming up with “Iron Man 3” scribe Drew Pearce on his directing debut.

Sources tell Variety that Ink Factory has closed a deal to finance and produce Pearce’s film “Hotel Artemis.”

Marc Platt and Adam Siegel join Ink Factory founders, Simon and Stephen Cornwell, as producers. Pearce, who is writing the film, will also exec produce through his new production company, Point of No Return.

The near-future thriller, set in its own distinctive crime universe, is drawing comparisons to “Ex Machina,” “Drive” and “Looper.”

Becky Sloviter, Ink Factory’s senior VP of production and development, will oversee production.

“Drew is one of the most talented screenwriters in town and has created yet another vibrant and captivating world, peopled with the most fantastic characters. We are thrilled to be supporting his directorial debut with this terrific project, »

11 Marvel Studios movies awaiting a greenlight

5 May 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




With news that a Black Widow movie may finally be moving, we look at 11 Marvel films stuck in development...

When the next Avengers movie hits cinemas, it will have been ten years since Marvel Studios came onto the scene since Iron Man. At the time of writing, they've already released 13 movies and so far (touch wood), there hasn't really been a single clunker among them, and certainly no box office bombs.

The studio also has dates staked out for the next 11 movies, including sequels to Thor, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man, along with films based around Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther and Captain Marvel, in the run-up to a two part Avengers movie that will tie off a lot of the franchise's over-arcing storyline. They've got plenty to be getting on with, but there have been a few projects along the way that didn't quite get the green light. »

NBC Proceeds With DC Hero Comedy Series

8 January 2016 7:04 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In development for some time, NBC has now officially ordered a pilot for "A to Z" creator Ben Queen's new half-hour DC superhero-themed comedy series "Powerless" from Warner Bros. Television.

The series is described as a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America and story deals with the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains.

Not based on any particular comic from the DC canon, minor characters from the DC universe could well show up on the series with Queen to pen the pilot and executive produce. Marvel Entertainment has a similar concept with "Damage Control," but it's uncertain if that is moving forward.

From the sounds of it, the tone will likely be akin to "The Office" or the short-lived 2008 British superhero comedy series "No Heroics".
