San Diego Comic-Con now in full swing, Universal has announced a host of new in-development comic-to-tv adaptations, including an as-yet untitled collaboration between Warren Ellis and Gale Anne Hurd's production company.
First up is a TV version of Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham's Five Ghosts, a 1930s-set adventure story about a treasure hunter with the titular number of spectres living inside him. The twist (as if that premise needs more) is that said ghosts are literary phantoms Merlin, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Musashi and Dracula, all of whose abilities the hunter can dip into as necessary. Sounds pretty exciting, huh? Ucp agrees, and has optioned the TV rights to the series. The headache of portraying all that on the screen belongs to pilot writer Evan Daugherty (Snow White And The Huntsman »
With the release of Brett Ratner’s Hercules edging ever closer, we had the opportunity of speaking to cast members Ian McShane and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal beforehand, who play Amphiaraus and Atalanta, respectively.
McShane, who has worked on huge blockbusters before such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Snow White and the Huntsman and Jack the Giant Slayer, discusses how the spirit on the camp compared to usual, as the pair recount what was a memorable experience. Berdal also tells us of her archery training she undertook for the role, and what it was like being one of the only women around on set.
Hercules is released on July 25th, and you can read our review here.

Remember the days when G.I. Joe 3 had a writing and directing team in place, and wasn’t just drifting through production limbo like so much blockbusting flotsam? Not too long ago, Paramount had Jon M. Chu locked in to continue steering the Joe ship (following his efforts on G.I. Joe: Retaliation), and with Snow White and the Huntsman screenwriter Evan Daugherty putting pen to paper on the new film’s script; they made a fine franchising combo in the abstract. If nothing else, they put the movie on rails.
But then Chu got caught up with directing an update on 80s cartoon Jem and the Holograms. At the time, this didn’t strike anyone as problematic, per se – the announcement came ...

When asked by ScreenCrush if the "G.I. Joe" franchise was in trouble following the decent, if not quite exceptional $375 million worldwide take for "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (only about $70 million more than its predecessor), producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura was candid: "I think the studio was very unsure about it. Look, you always wonder until they say yes, really," he said. Well, it looks like they're saying yes. With a 2016 date now eyed by Paramount, Variety reports that Jonathan Lemkin ("Shooter," "The Devil's Advocate") has been tasked to write the script. He presumably takes over for Evan Daughtery ("Snow White And The Huntsman") who was hired last fall, and we'd wager this screenplay will be the bait to snag a new director, as John Chu is not expected to return. That said, di Bonaventura is promising big, big things. "I honestly believe we have one of the best ideas we have ever come across for a sequel. »

The upcoming G.I. Joe 3 has been riding on rocky road ever since director Jon Chu decided to take a personal detour and go make Jem and The Holograms. Paramount, however, has no interest in hitting the pause button on one of their biggest franchises. Hence, the studio has just signed a deal with a new screenwriter to work on the sequel's script. Variety was the first to report the news, saying that the G.I. Joe 3 writing duties are being handed over to Jonathan Lemkin. We've previously heard that the studio was bringing in Snow White and the Huntsman scribe Evan Daugherty for the gig, but this new story makes it seem like Lemkin will be working with a clean slate - minus what the studio and toy companies already have in mind, of course. As we learned last week, the plan is to have Dwayne Johnson return as »

Snow White and the Huntsman made a ton of money. And like most films that make a ton of money (say, a certain bot-morphing franchise with a new sequel this weekend), it’s mostly immune to criticism. No one cares about sagging reviews when your film just brought in the Gdp of a small country. But there’s some kind of criticism that will sink your film-Titanic: a star that’s poison in the tabloids. It’s why Mel Gibson is just now crawling his way back into an Expendables role after all those racial slur incidents a few years back. And Snow White and the Huntsman is no stranger to this kind of low controversy. You may remember that in 2012 star Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders were caught in a love affair, kindled by the fires of British actors digitally altered to look like dwarves. What you might not remember is the tangled mass of »
