Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Finds Its Karai

27 May 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With the cameras currently rolling, the cast for David Green’s (Earth to Echo) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is slowly but surely coming together, with word from Deadline that Brittany Ishibashi (Emily Owens M.D., Political Animals) will be taking on the role of Karai, loyal member of the Foot Clan, and depending on what version of the story you’ve seen, is either the Shredder’s (played this time round by Brian Tee) successor or related to him in some way. Karai was actually seen briefly in the the original movie, played by Minae Noji, but a bulked up role the second time round may have called for a recasting. Ishibashi joins the original cast, including Will Arnett and Megan Fox, swell as other newcomers, including Stephen Amell as vigilante Casey Jones, Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman, and Gary Anthony Williams as the warthog part of fan favourite duo Bebop and Rocksteady. »

TV’s Super Producer: Greg Berlanti Powers Up With ‘Supergirl,’ ‘The Flash’

18 May 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The couch in Greg Berlanti’s spacious office on the Warner Bros. lot is crowded with needlepointed throw pillows, all gifts from his mother — one for each of his series, the successes along with the noble failures. There’s “Everwood,” “Political Animals,” “Dirty Sexy Money,” and “Arrow,” festooned with, yes, a black plastic arrow.

With this season’s pickup of three new shows from Berlanti Prods., spanning three networks — CBS’ “Supergirl,” NBC’s “Blindspot” and the CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” — soon there won’t be room for guests to get comfortable.

Luckily, the pillows take a while to make their way to his couch. “There’s a woman who does the needlepoint, and then my mother ‘produces’ them,” he says with a laugh. “She just feels like she makes them.”

But that’s not his producing style.

Wong Fu Productions’ Feature Film ‘Everything Before Us’ Heads To Vimeo

27 April 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Wong Fu Productions has secured a distribution partner for its first feature-length film. The YouTube group, founded in 2003 and comprised of Philip Chang, Wesley Chan, and Ted Fu, will release the movie Everything Before Us exclusively via Vimeo On Demand on June 3, 2015.

Originally premiering at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on April 23, Everything Before Us is a science fiction romantic drama set in a modern day world not terribly unlike our own, except for the fact a person's romantic history is documented like a credit score. The flick focuses on a couple trying to overcome the inherent drawbacks of the system for individuals who haven't had a lot of luck in love.

Everything Before Us stars Aaron Yoo (The Tomorrow People), Ki Hong Lee (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Randall Park (The Interview), Brittany Ishibashi (Political Animals), Victoria Park (Raven’s Touch), and Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder).

"The Brave and The Bold" - 'Atom', 'Firestorm', 'Captain Cold' and 'Canary'

3 March 2015 11:16 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, The CW is developing another DC Comics based TV series, featuring 'Atom', 'Firestorm', 'Captain Cold' and 'Canary', plus three additional superheroes, executive produced by openly gay producer Greg Berlanti, who admits to including 'Lgbt' messages in his ongoing series, "The Flash", "Arrow" and the upcoming CBS series "Supergirl":

"I can remember when there were storylines with gay characters on shows like 'Family' and 'Dynasty' and thinking, I have something in common with that person," Berlanti told The Advocate. "This was way before the internet and all the visibility that has brought with it. But back then, you really felt alone and when I saw those characters on TV, I knew I wasn't alone..."

Previously, as a writer, producer on "Dawson’s Creek", Berlanti tinkered with the main characters, following up with more inclusive moments in the series "Jack & Bobby", "Everwood", "Brothers & Sisters" and the 2012 mini-series "Political Animals »
