TV Line report that Tom Ellis has landed the title role in Fox's Lucifer, which is based on the incarnation of the character first introduced in Neil Gaiman's Sandman. The Welsh actor is best known stateside for his role the first Robin Hood in TV's Once Upon A Time. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Now it seems it's "undergone an evolution toward a police procedural", with the character getting his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals. Does this have a hope in Hell of being good?

We'd heard the Lucifer pilot had been commissioned, and now Deadline confirm that Fox and Warner Bros. TV have reached a deal to bring the Neil Gaiman-created character to the small screen. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld, various other crap), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Now it seems it's "undergone an evolution toward a police procedural", with Deadline adding that the character will "gets his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals." Does this have a hope in Hell of being good? Let us know what you think in the usual place. »
A quick preamble. Over the course of the coming weeks and months, we're going to be exploring many of our favourite movie franchises, and ranking the films in order. Mainly because it gives us a further chance to talk about many of our favourite films.
Inevitably, the ordering in these cases isn't always going to come as a surprise - we go into this with the first and last place in most of these lists immediately obvious - but it's interesting to see how the movies stand in the context of each other. Police Academy week in particular should be a hoot.
When it comes to ranking the Die Hard films then, the battle is really between Die Hards 2 and 3 for second place. But »
Jessica Biel will open Au Fudge soon, the actress is set to open her child-friendly restaurant in May.

Concept artist Warren Manser ("The Dark Knight Rises") has a great collection of concept art that he created for Mark Steven Johnson's ("Ghost Rider") 2003 superhero film Daredevil. The film starred Ben Affleck ("Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice") as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Jennifer Garner ("Butter") as Elektra Natchios and Colin Farrell ("Total Recall") as Lester Poindexter/Bullseye. Below, are some alternate costume designs for all three. I especially like Elektra's trademark red costume better than the black leather getup she wore in the film. There's also alternate red and dark grey/black costumes for Daredevil, which should pique your interest. Daredevil (2003) - For Daredevil, justice is blind, and for the guilty, there's hell to pay! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner ignite dangerous sparks and nonstop thrills in this dazzling action-adventure about the newest breed of superhero. By day, blind »
