Scream Reboot Gets Series Order from MTV

28 October 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Do you like scary movies?” If this line from Wes Craven’s Scream still sends a shiver down your spine, then perhaps you should prepare to be creeped out by more cryptic phone calls, as MTV has officially put in a series order for their Scream reboot.

MTV made the announcement via Twitter, using blood-splattered emojis to get the message across, in addition to a listed phone number. If you call the number, a man imitating Roger L. Jackson’s chilling vocal cords says, “Do you like scary TV? Scream is coming to MTV October 2015.”

The first season of the show will consist of 10 episodes and it is believed that the franchise’s iconic Ghostface outfit will not be worn by any killers early on, based on this statement made by R.J. Torbert of Fun World (the official rights-holder and manufacturer of the Ghostface costume) in an interview with Ghostface. »

The Killing: Season 1-3 DVD Review

27 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Amongst the plethora of television thrillers, mysteries and detective stories, the Nordic Noir genre is undoubtedly the one of the moment. As people turn away from your standard city cop thriller, a bleak Scandinavian vibe is satisfying the urges and they’re slowing down the pace in favour of character-led drama – where people actually have to work things out.

Originally a Danish series called Forbrydelsen, the Us version of The Killing, written and produced by Veena Sud, took all the good things and thankfully kept them (including the knitwear) in this equally exciting and absorbing television drama. Just as season four of the Emmy-nominated The Killing comes to Netflix, we’re excited to share the news that you can pick up seasons 1 to 3 on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time as one complete collection and also as single disc releases, with season 2 and 3 making their UK home entertainment debut this week. »

‘The Killing: Complete Third Season’ Blu-ray Review

26 October 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In the final season of The Killing, everything comes full circle and the past comes back to haunt Linden (Mireille Enos) who seemed to have finally escaped from the life of the homicide detective. Dragged back to the case that started her obsession, this is the one to make Linden question if her instincts were right, or was there a miscarriage of justice?

Moving away from politics, there is still a hint of police corruption in The Killing Season 3 pulling Linden back into being a homicide detective.  When Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard) a murderer from her past is nearing his execution, Linde begins to question his guilt when bodies of young women are discovered bearing the same tell-tale marks of his victim.  With Holder (Joel Kinnaman) by her side and James Skinner (Elias Koteas) her past partner investigating the murders, a whole new can of worms are opened up.

Piracy Endangers TV Renewals and Jobs, Says ‘Killing’ Writer (Guest Column)

6 October 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a recent New York Times article, Hana Beshara, founder of NinjaVideo, the now defunct illegal online streaming site for TV and movies, says she is unrepentant for creating a site that chose to use other people’s intellectual property to make half a million dollars for herself and her collaborators on the site.

As a television drama writer who works mainly in the cable world, my writing partner Nicole Yorkin and I write characters like Hana all the time. Engaging characters with questionable morality who gleefully commit crimes for the thrill of it. It makes for good TV.

Hanna would be one of the archetypes — lost and without much of a sense of identity, until she stumbles into the world of online piracy. Her life changes dramatically as she becomes the “hot-tempered,” powerful Queen Phara, lording over her own online community of 60,000 devotees.

Oh, yeah. Move over Walter White. »

Synopsis:

A twisted tale about the inner workings of a Hollywood family and the tragic past that they can’t escape.

For the first time in his career David Cronenberg has made a movie in America and what a film it is. Maps to the Stars is a deliciously satirical take on Hollywood which examines the twisted culture that so many love.

We’re firstly introduced to the burnt and scarred Agatha (superbly played by go-to Indie girl Mia Wasikowska) as she arrives in the brilliant sunshine of La. Through a series of meetings and a cameo from Carrie Fisher, she starts work as a personal assistant to washed up actress Havana Segrand (Moore). Havana is one of those characters that you love to hate. She’s selfish, »

Exclusive Interview With Lindsay MacKay And Julia Sarah Stone On Wet Bum

14 September 2014 6:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You have to be a bit daring to name your first feature film Wet Bum, but that’s the title of Lindsay MacKay’s directorial debut. The film, a coming-of-age drama about a teenage girl who works in a retirement home going through a complicated romance, premieres at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and is an assured and enjoyable debut (you can check out our review here).

While MacKay’s film is sensitive and moving, much of Wet Bum’s attention is going to its star, teen actor Julia Sarah Stone. A Vancouver native best known to North American audiences for her role in The Killing, Stone was also named one of the festival’s four Rising Stars this year. It is clear that the young actor has a long career ahead of her. as she is already working on films with esteemed directors like Werner Herzog and Wim Wenders. »
