[Review] I Am Not a Serial Killer

25 August 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Often lumped into the Young Adult category to the chagrin of author Dan Wells, I’m not sure I know many parents who would like to have their fourteen-year old child heading to theaters with friends for the cinematic adaptation of his debut I Am Not a Serial Killer. The first of what has now spiraled into a quintet of books surrounding John Wayne Cleaver; its story introduces the character as a clinically diagnosed sociopath attempting to survive adolescence within a small mid-western town. His own predilection towards violence and the macabre aside, John’s journey ultimately finds him on the trail of a brutal assailant terrorizing his home with supernatural strength. A keen amateur scholar of the mass murderer circuit, this teen proves perfectly suited to crack the case.

Don’t expect Encyclopedia Brown or Young Sherlock, however. Cleaver’s (Max Records) motivations to hunt this monster are purely selfish. »

Film News: Anton Yelchin, Chekov from ‘Star Trek’ Reboot, Dies at 27

20 June 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – The loss of a up-and-coming actor at an early age is always a tragic event, and Anton Yelchin has been added to that roster. In a freak automobile accident at his home, Yelchin died on June 19th, 2016. He was best known for embracing the role of Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” film series reboot. He was 27 years old.

Yelchin came to Chicago in 2011 to promote his romantic drama “Like Crazy,” and his charismatic youth was confidently within his burgeoning career. At that point, at 22 years old, he had already done the “Star Trek” reboot and “Terminator: Salvation,” and was looking forward to roles in “The Beaver” and as a voice actor in the first “Smurfs” film. He was intelligent, and had a good-head-on-his-shoulders perspective regarding the sometimes crazy world of the film business.

Rip Anton Yelchin: 9 Reasons We Loved His Performances

19 June 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Anton Yelchin passed away at the tragically young age of 27, at a time when many actors’ careers are just gathering momentum. But Yelchin had already amassed an impressive filmography that stretched back to his childhood, with an eclectic mixture of blockbusters, TV projects, and smaller efforts. “I’m just a huge supporter of this universe of filmmaking,” he told IndieWire in 2011. “It’s just fundamental. I can’t stress that enough.” Here, the IndieWire team shares their thoughts on why Yelchin stood out.

A Rare Screen Presence

Yelchin was the rare young actor to convey a plucky disposition while something gentler and melancholic lurked beneath the surface. As the energetic teen offspring of the troubled shrink on “Huff,” Yelchin was often the sole voice of reason in a sea of anxiety-riddled adults. While they grappled with middle-age, he was tasked with calling them on the pithy nature of their problems. »

‘Star Trek’ & ‘Green Room’ actor Anton Yelchin dies at 27 in accident

19 June 2016 12:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We are desperately sad to report that wonderful young man and actor, Anton Yelchin, has died in a freak car accident at 27 years of age.

It has been reported by TMZ, and numerous sources, that he was pinned by his own car that rolled into him and with it suffered fatal head and chest injuries.

Yelchin has been a sterling young talent who has definitely left a positive mark on everything we’ve seen him in. Starring as a young Chekov in Star Trek has been on his utter highlights but he’s also turned in first class performances in the likes of the Fright Night reboot, Odd Thomas, Only Lovers Left Alive, Like Crazy and Green Room, to name just a few.

The entire The Hollywood News family send their deepest sympathies to Anton’s family and friends at this difficult time.

R.I.P. Anton Yelchin 1989 – 2016.

MacGyver TV Pilot Adds Addison Timlin And Michelle Krusiec

28 March 2016 5:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to figuring out why spy series MacGyver is getting a TV reboot, your guess is as good as mine, but today brings some news about what it’s going to look like, in the form of two cast additions.

Addison Timlin, known best for Californication but most familiar to this writer as the love interest for Anton Yelchin in Stephen Sommers’ under-appreciated Odd Thomas, has boarded the CBS project in the lead female role. She’s playing Mickey, an app developer who’s aggressively progressive in her political views but harbors a soft spot for Lucas Till’s MacGyver. Meanwhile, Michelle Krusiec (Hawaii Five-o) will play Agent Croix, who works for the Department of Homeland Security and is sister to a character named Lincoln (George Eads).

In case this is the first you’re hearing of the TV series, Till (X-Men: First Class) is set to take »
