Amid the debate about the lack of female directors in Hollywood, “Longmire” actor Bailey Chase is thankful that the problem is finally being addressed. “Finally, that voice is starting to get heard,” the actor told TheWrap in an episode of “Drinking With the Stars” while promoting his new movie, “Sex, Death and Bowling.” “It’s like affirmative action, but for women in film, and long overdue.” Chase plays bedridden Rick McAllister in the film that was directed by Ally Walker, who has acted in TV shows like “Longmire” with Chase and “Sons of Anarchy.” Knowing Walker acted before particularly enticed Chase to work. »

According to JoBlo, Warner Bros. Pictures have a short list of possible frontrunners to helm the Guillermo del Toro-scripted "Justice League Dark" film adaptation. Del Toro wrote the recent screenplay with the desire to direct but decided to step down due to his commitment to helm "Pacific Rim 2: Maelstrom", which is set up with Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures.
JoBlo revealed that the directing team of Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado and Fede Alvarez are in contention for the job. Keshales and Papushado are known in the horror genre for "Big Bad Wolves", "Rabies" and the anthology film "ABCs of Death 2." Alvarez directed 2013's "Evil Dead" remake, which was produced by original director Sam Raimi. Alvarez is currently in post-production on his latest film, "A Man in the Dark".

You can’t help but see a little irony in The Blacklist’s fall finale.
After months of living on the run, hopscotching from underground bunker to empty apartment and back again, it wasn’t The Cabal that finally got the best of Liz and Red. It wasn’t some demented blacklister that Red had his eye on for years, and it wasn’t even the FBI task force. (Well, it sort of was, but more on that later.)
Rather, the people who got the upper hand over Red and Liz were a ragtag bunch called Kings of the Highway, »
In Showtime’s upcoming high-finance drama Billions, Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti star as a hedge fund king and a U.S. Attorney, respectively. But it’s their wives — played by Malin Akerman (Trophy Wife) and Maggie Siff (Sons of Anarchy) — who clearly control the proverbial purse strings, as evidenced by the exclusive promo above. (Warning: The trailer contains Nsfw language.)
This is a little premature, but we’re already head over heels in love with Akerman’s ball-busting character. (She had us at “F—in’ right I am. »
It’s never fun to see a show get cancelled, so forgive us if we don’t jump straight into executioner-themed jokes about the show getting the chop, the axe being wielded and so forth.
As you might have gathered, The Bastard Executioner has been cancelled after just one season. FX’s ambitious period drama struggled for ratings, dipping from 4 million viewers to less than 2 million in the space of six episodes.
“The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is, ‘meh,’” must’ve been a particularly tough sentence for Mr Sutter to type out. »
Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has taken out a full page ad in The Hollywood Reporter to announce that the axe has fallen on his latest series The Bastard Executioner, with FX opting against renewing the show for a second season following its finale last night.
“It’s fantastic to get a good review [or] an award, but at the end of the day the only thing that matters, really, is numbers,” Sutter tells THR. “My job as a storyteller is to share my vision while I engage and entertain an audience. If I don’t have that audience, I can’t do my job. So, I saw it coming. I saw each week that it didn’t hook, it didn’t necessarily land. With Sons, it premiered low but then it flatlined really quickly and by episode seven or so of that first season, it slowly started to tick up. »

Television shows are canceled all the time — but their creators usually aren't the ones who bring down the ax. Kurt Sutter, whose biker drama Sons of Anarchy remains the most-watched series in the history of the FX channel, has taken it upon himself to kill The Bastard Executioner, the follow-up show that he created for the network. Aware of its dwindling ratings, Sutter decided to pre-empt a formal cancellation announcement and take out a large ad in the Hollywood trade magazines announcing the show's demise. After thanking his cast, crew, »
In an interesting turn of events, FX show The Bastard Executioner was canceled by its own creator, Sons of Anarchy mastermind Kurt Sutter, after only one season. Kurt took out a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter to announce the news, citing audience disinterest as the main reason for his "heartbreaking" decision to end the medieval drama. "It's fantastic to get a good review [or] an award, but at the end of the day the only thing that matters, really, is numbers," he explained. "I don't want to write something that nobody's f*cking watching." While this is certainly a sad day for fans of the show, here's hoping there's much more TV brilliance to come from Kurt in the future. »

The Bastard Executioner has been canceled after its first season in a unique way: Series creator Kurt Sutter took out an ad in The Hollywood Reporter announcing he has decided to end the low-rated series, with FX confirming his decision. In the ad, Sutter acknowledges the cast and crew for their talent and commitment and thanks the producers and people behind the scenes who helped make the show. "The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is, 'meh,'" the ad reads. "So with due respect, we bring our mythology to an epic and fiery close." The Bastard Executioner was the Sons of Anarchy creator's 14th Century series starring Katey Sagal, Stephen Moyer and Lee Jones. The series »
As the top-rated drama series in FX history, Sons of Anarchy was always going to be a difficult act to follow. But quite how difficult has been put into perspective today, with series creator Kurt Sutter announcing plans to pull the plug on his episodic follow-up The Bastard Executioner after only one season.
Deciding to call time on the period drama after last night’s season finale, the showrunner revealed that his new series was struggling to pull in the numbers, and even though Sutter believes that The Bastard Executioner demanded “an acquired taste,” its meagre audience can’t justify a renewal at FX. “I don’t want to write something that nobody’s f—ing watching,” he said.

Kurt Sutter has given his show The Bastard Executioner the ax after one season. Sutter publicly announced the show's demise by taking out a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter. He wrote, "The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is, 'meh.'" "It's fantastic to get a good review [or] an award, but at the end of the day the only thing that matters, really, is numbers," Sutter told THR. "I'm not the guy sitting in my ivory tower spitting shit out and not caring if anyone is watching … I don't want to write something that nobody's fucking watching."Ultimately, while he says he loved the mythology of the show, it came down to the numbers. The ratings never reached the highs of his previous show, Sons of Anarchy, which set records for FX. Instead, The Bastard Executioner fared much worse, losing more than half of its viewership in six weeks, »

FX and Kurt Sutter have sentenced "The Bastard Executioner" to death, ending the fantasy series after an expensive, low-rated single season. In an unusual move, Sutter decided to announce the decision via an ad released to the Hollywood trades, in which he admitted, "The audience has spoken, and unfortunately, the word is 'meh.'" Sutter also gave several interviews to the trades, including a long and typically candid one with Hollywood Reporter's Lacey Rose, where he acknowledged that the numbers simply weren't there for his follow-up to "Sons of Anarchy," and that he was working himself so hard (and delivering script pages at the last second, David Milch-style) that he couldn't continue his usual practice of directing his show's season finales. I didn't enjoy the show's first three hours, and between other viewing options and the bonus length of most episodes, I never felt particularly eager to try to catch up. »

Kurt Sutter‘s “The Bastard Executioner” was just executed by FX after one season. The writer’s post-“Sons of Anarchy” project never really found an audience, something Sutter acknowledged in media ads announcing the series’ summary exodus from the airwaves. “The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is ‘meh,'” he wrote. “So with due respect, we bring our mythology to an epic and fiery close.” Also Read: 'The Bastard Executioner' Review: Bloody Kurt Sutter Drama Gets Bogged Down in Slow Storytelling Sutter used some space to thank his cast and crew.

Series creator and showrunner Kurt Sutter has gone to unusual lengths to salute the hard work that went into producing the show while boldly acknowledging that the ratings weren’t strong enough to justify a renewal.
The sword-and-sackcloth drama about the struggles of warrior knights in 12th century Wales proved to be “an acquired taste,” by Sutter’s admission. And “Bastard” was produced on much more than a Medieval budget. “We did not hold back from showing the brutality of living in 1325 Wales,” he told Variety.
Sutter and FX Networks CEO John Landgraf had a candid conversation recently that sealed the decision about the show.
“The numbers just didn’t sustain the cost of the show, quite frankly,” Sutter said. “It’s all math at the end of the day. »

Kurt Sutter’s 14th century Sons Of Anarchy follow-up The Bastard Executioner has been canceled after its first season. Rather than allow the FX and Fox 21 TV Studios drama to simply fade away after 10 episodes, Sutter has taken the unusual step of helping the network make the decision and buying farewell ads on Deadline and the Hollywood trades to thank his cast and crew — and the network that ultimately had to swing the ax because the show wasn't generating enough… »
