Austin maverick filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is set to launch his small-screen reboot of his cult-favorite film From Dusk Till Dawn, but his TV ambitions don’t stop there. With his new Latino-themed/English-speaking cable network El Rey, the Spy Kids and Desperado writer-director-producer-editor is trying to carve a whole new path for cool TV shows that sheds the usual big network note-giving development process. We interviewed Rodriguez at his Austin-based Troublemaker Studios about his new network and Dusk (which will premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival this weekend). Below Rodriguez reveals how the genre-mashup Dusk got made, teases »

Although Fox and director Josh Trank are yet to officially confirm the recent casting news on the upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four, it's been the worst kept secret in Hollywood for the past few months that the film will reunite Trank with his Chronicle star Michael B. Jordan, who is set to play Johnny Storm, a.k.a. The Human Torch. Of course, that means a change of race for the Torch - a decision which hasn't sat right with many fans of Marvel's First Family. Well, Jordan has now addressed the criticism towards his casting during an interview with Cinefilos (via Cbm)...
"It was expected. You kinda know going into it that people are used to seeing something one way, it's a continuity thing more than anything. People don't like change too much. But annoyed? Eh, you just kinda accept it, it is what it is. You can't make everybody happy. »

Brian Juergens has been an integral part of our success for longer than many of you may be aware. Back when we were still called AfterElton, Brian was our blog editor, and responsible for much of Ae’s content, as well as reigning in contributors (for which he deserved some kind of prize).
Brian left the site for a while, but picked up where he left off when he came back, providing movie reviews, pop culture posts, and indispensable recaps for such shows as American Horror Story, Looking, Shameless, Game Of Thrones, and most famously, True Blood.
In addition to his regular True Blood recaps, he and hubby Andy Swist (who’s made his own mark on TheBacklot) create hilarious video recaps on Brian’s site CampBlood.org (which was the first website devoted to horror films from a gay perspective).
Today is Brian’s something-something birthday, and if you »

Gary Oldman's Flying Studio company is developing an exorcist-themed horror TV series, The Diabolic...
With a new series of American Horror Story on the way, the imminent arrival of Guillermo del Toro's The Strain, demon-centric Constantine adding more cast daily, and forthcoming Victorian-set thriller Penny Dreadful, the choice for TV horror fans is slowly broadening. Add to those names an in-development serialised horror called The Diabolic.
Gary Oldman's Flying Studio is teaming up with Entertainment One to produce The Diabolic, which tells the story of a "brilliant but broken exorcist" who falls for a woman whose son is possessed by some supernatural nastiness.
It's very early days for the project, which means no casting or pilot news as yet, but we'll keep you posted.

The second-season premiere of Hannibal opens big. Shockingly big. In fact, it would work as a season finale. A brawl between Mads Mikkelsen’s psychopathic Hannibal Lecter and Laurence Fishburne’s Jack Crawford. It’s been a long time coming but the manner in which it is pulled of is as audacious and brutal as anything we have been subject to over season one. Lecter fights as if trained in combat, Crawford, a bulking machine. From there, the episode flourishes.
Even when it slips into what it has down so well for the past year, it glistens with a bloody sense of originality. Hugh Dancy’s Will Graham is now behind bars, framed for crimes committed by Lecter yet Graham is aware that it is Lecter that is the darkness that haunts him. This allows for a playful change in tone. »

Ryan Murphy has been predictably cryptic about his plans for the next season of American Horror Story, but he has given us some hints. To sum it up, the next season will take place in 1950 and will either be filmed in New Orleans (again) or Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jessica Lange will be back (probably for her final season) and she might be playing a German woman. Based on that information, we've come up with some probable ideas about the next season. Without further ado, we give you theories. Source: FX Theory 1: It's about the Stamm kidnapping. Murphy has stated that the next season is a period piece and to look at what happened in 1950 historically. If they do end up filming in Santa Fe, one possibility is that it will be about a bizarre kidnapping that took place there that year. An obstetrician kidnapped a wealthy family's 9-year-old »

Hayden Panettiere is one down-to-earth star we always secretly felt like we could be best friends with, if given the opportunity. So when we scored some one-on-one time with the Nashville actress who has been busy filming a fun video series called "Neutrogena Does Nashville" with her makeup artist, Amy Oresman, we couldn't help but pick her brain on all things fashion and beauty. Here's what she shared with us: Other than Nashville, what is your favorite TV show right now? True Detective, which is amazing, I used to be, even as a kid, really into darker shows. I loved Six Feet Under, I'm really attracted to darker TV shows. American Horror Story. We don't get too much »
Recently, we showed you the first teaser for Steven Soderbergh's much-anticipated medical drama "The Knick," scheduled to appear on Cinemax this summer. Lucky for us, Cinemax has generously provided three more eerie teasers that promise blood, cigarettes and Clive Owen in scrubs. Looking more in the vein of something like "American Horror Story" than "Grey's Anatomy," "The Knick" is a period drama that stars Clive Owen as a doctor in the early 1900s who works at The Knickerboxer Hospital in New York. Take a look at the new teasers below: »

We're still yet to get official confirmation from 20th Century Fox as to the cast (even though it seems all but assured at this point), but with The Fantastic Four gearing up to go into production this month, producer Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) has spoken briefly about the reboot to Empire, during which he made sure to distance it from Fox's previous Ff movies.
"It’s a total reboot. It’s got nothing to with the other bloody ones," said Vaughn, referring to Fantastic Four and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, both of which starred Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis as Marvel's First Family. "It’s not a stretchy guy and a guy running around in rock that looks like it’s made of polystyrene. And it’s not a comedy."
Let's hope that they do stick with some of the source material, »

Just how far would you go to attain physical perfection? What would you be willing to do to hold onto that beauty once it’s within your grasp? How much would a compromise like that cost: financially, morally, and physically? Being beautiful isn’t easy and there are so many factors that you need to take into consideration: the mass murder, the resurrections, the cannibalism, the head-hoarding, the upkeep of an immortal body steadily declining into rot and, of course, locating somebody tight-lipped enough who’ll supply you with fetal-flavored dumplings as a starter.
The intention of this column is to cast a net over some ladies in the horror genre whose evil grooming techniques resulted in flawless skin, great hair, a high-body count and their own inevitable annihilation.
A word of advice: don’t try any of these beauty regime at home, kids.

With the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past this May, Hugh Jackman will have made seven appearances as Wolverine, and while talking to IGN, the star has discussed his time as the clawed hero, and whether he thinks Fox had given any consideration to recasting the role of Logan, particularly with a younger actor for 2011's X-Men: First Class:
"I’m sure they had the discussion. They didn’t mention it to me, obviously! Look, that’s inevitable, man. Anyone who thinks they're indispensable in this business is fooling themselves. But I feel unbelievably blessed to have this part. I never thought in a million years I'd get to play him seven times. Every day I walk on the set with the claws and the hair, I thank my lucky stars. I don't take any of it for granted. To think that in a second version we'd have this cast and this director, »

Sitting in a posh hotel suite in Pasadena, Calif., James D'Arcy, British star of the A&E Network serial-killer drama "Those Who Kill," premiering Monday, March 3, recalls taking the first-time plunge into an open-ended TV series.
"The nature of television is you have a vague idea of where you're going, but that can change," he tells Zap2it. "It's the first time I've done something where I don't know what the end was when I accepted the role. It's the first time I've done anything where I didn't read all the scripts."
"That's always challenging for me as well," says his co-star, Chloe Sevigny, who's done film, stage and TV series ("Big Love," "Hit & Miss," "American Horror Story: Asylum"). "You don't have any control."
Olivia Munn and Emma Roberts didn't get a slice of Ellen DeGeneres' many pizza pies on Sunday. Instead, the slender actresses—who did not attend the 86th Annual Academy Awards—got all dolled up for the Vanity Fair party. Newsroom star Munn, 33, modeled a vintage Alexander McQueen gown and completed her look with Neil Lane jewels, Jimmy Choo heels and a Marchesa clutch. American Horror Story: Coven scene-stealer Roberts, 23, looked red hot wearing a Fendi dress, custom Brian Atwood heels, Dior Fine Jewelry rings and Chimento earrings. The actress carried a Swarovski bag. The TV stars bonded over potato chips and burgers, prompting Munn to tweet a picture. "This is what the Oscar parties are all »
Step aside, Matthew McCounaughey—there's a new crime-solving badass who is ready to solve some of TV's most gruesome murders. Chloe Sevigny's new crime-thriller, Those Who Kill, premieres on A&E Monday night, and you'd better brace yourself because it's one of the most twisted and horrifying hours of television that we've ever witnessed. Fans know and love Sevigny as the edgy actress who can master any role, from an uptight sister wife on Big Love, to a sex-crazed metal patient on American Horror Story: Asylum, to Danny's hilariously insane ex on The Mindy Project. Now the Golden Globe winning actress is embracing her newest multi-faceted character: Pittsburgh's most unrelenting »
Since its premiere, The Good Wife has done what is nearly impossible for most shows- it is stunningly smart, perfectly paced, and beautifully written, and it has only gotten better in its game-changing fifth season. Guest stars are nothing new to the show, which has the most creative and entertaining guest casting on television, and it uses these performers incredibly well, folding them into stories the audience is already invested in alongside characters we care about. With each new guest star, The Good Wife manages to accomplish yet another often unachievable feat: making us care about the guests we’ll likely only see for a few episodes as much as the regular characters. The series has already peopled its world with a fantastic group of actors (check out Kate Arthur’s ranking of 76 of them from last year to get an idea), but it can always add a few more. »
Despite the torrential downpour in L.A. during Oscars weekend, Hollywood starlets managed to brighten up the gloomy scene with orange outfits at Saturday's Indie Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. American Horror Story actress Angela Bassett arrived to the blue carpet in a bright, hip-hugging orange dress with a low v-cut neckline. The 55-year-old star toned down her outfit with a black-and-grey clutch and beige peep-toe heels.
