Clive Standen Inks Deal To Topline NBC’s Taken Prequel Series As Young CIA Agent

Before stepping foot on the icy hills of Everest, actor Clive Standen carved out a career in period dramas, be it Camelot or History’s acclaimed Vikings series, where he plays the role of Rollo. That’s all about to change now that The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Standen will headline NBC’s upcoming Taken prequel series, stepping into the shoes of a young Liam Neeson.

Chronicling the formative years of Neeson’s hardboiled super agent Bryan Mills, the network’s high-profile offshoot will document Mills’ first foray into the CIA, and how he accrued that particular set of skills in the first place.

A prequel at its core, Luc Besson – director behind the 2008 sleeper hit – is attached to executive producer NBC’s straight-to-series project. Alexander Cary of Homeland fame will pen the script and executive produce opposite Besson. Producing duties will be leveraged between Matthew Gross, Edouard de Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros,

Lucasfilm Looking At Reviving George Lucas’ Live Action 'Star Wars' TV Show

A long time ago, following the release of "Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge Of The Sith," and before Lucasfilm was sold to Disney, George Lucas was busy making more plans for "Star Wars," and they were pretty bold. Titled "Star Wars: Underworld," the stories would've bridged the gap between the movie prequels and the original trilogy, and writers were hired including Ronald D. Moore ("Battlestar Galactica") and Louise Fox ("Camelot"). Four hundred episodes were planned, and apparently between fifty and one hundred scripts had been completed. But then Disney came knocking, and the show was effectively kiboshed. However, it seems that material is just too good to let slide completely. Slashfilm recently caught up with Kathleen Kennedy and inquired about Lucas' TV show, and the producer revealed the company was looking at what they had in the archives. And that's not all. Perhaps the biggest loss for fans in.

Monty Python And The Holy Grail vs Bill

twitter

google+

The director of Bill, Richard Bracewell, exclusively writes for us on the influence of Monty Python And The Holy Grail.

To Ni or not to Ni. That was the question. We were making a historical film comedy with a group who had found fame with a TV sketch show. There were going to be comparisons. What sort of relationship were we going to have with the godfather of historical movie comedy? Acknowledge it? Ignore it? Steal from it and run away? On the occasion of the film's fortieth birthday it seems a good moment to ask, as filmmakers: what has Monty Python And The Holy Grail ever done for us?

Monty Python And The Holy Grail was shot in 1974 on a budget of $400,000. It was enough to hire coconuts but not horses. Filming was confined almost exclusively to the Scottish estate of Doune Castle in Glen Coe.
