Sources say that Jasper Pääkkönen and Sam Strike have both been cast in the pilot, which is based on the Stephen King book series of the same name. Strike will play Roland Deschain, also known as The Gunslinger, while Pääkkönen is believed to be playing The Man in Black, also known as Marten Broadcloak and Randall Flagg. The series is said to tell the story of how Roland became a gunslinger and his first encounter with the villainous Man in Black.
Amazon declined to comment.
Strike most recently starred in the Syfy series “Nightflyers,” based on the George R.R. Martin novella. His other recent credits include “Mindhunter,” “Timeless,” and “EastEnders.” He will also appear in HBO’s upcoming miniseries “Chernobyl.”
Pääkkönen recently starred in Spike Lee’s Oscar-winning film “BlacKkKlansman
Dan and Eugene Levy, who created and star in the wildly popular series took to social media to break the news.
"We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning," Daniel and Eugene Levy said.
Legendary acquired the feature film rights in December and have quickly made the project a high priority at the studio. Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz of Troma Entertainment will serve as producers with Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter overseeing for Legendary.
Kaufman and Herz produced the original 1984 comedy, set in the fictional town of Tromaville, N.J., and centered on a mild-mannered janitor at a health club who’s chased out a second story window by bullies and lands in a drum of toxic waste. The chemicals cause him to transform into the Toxic Avenger, who has superhuman size and strength and stands up to bullies and corruption.
“The Toxic Avenger” became successful after a long run as a midnight movie in New York City, leading to the
Lindsey Ferrentino is adapting the screenplay.
We hear that both Russell and Krasinski aren’t looking to direct the adaptation. Krasinski and Allyson Seeger will produce the project through their Sunday Night banner with Russell and Matthew Budman.
Krasinski’s on hand to write and direct A Quiet Place sequel for Paramount with Blunt also reprising her role in the film. That has been dated for a May 15, 2020 release.

Sandy K. Boone’s documentary is likely to be lost on the not-previously converted, as what seemed the height of snark in the Reagan Era hasn’t dated all that well — nor is its appeal apparent as excerpted and recalled here. But those who remember the gospel of “slack” will make this diverting-enough documentary an in-demand work at genre festivals, as a streaming item and in other forums.
But there are times you need an instigator to stir up a hornets’ nest, and one of
“Has it really been that long?
Gaye recorded “Symphony” during the sessions for Let’s Get It On and it later appeared on his posthumous 1985 album, Dream of a Lifetime. For his remix, Remi boosted the orchestral elements of the original and anchored them with a dusty drum shuffle, all in the service of highlighting Gaye’s vocals as he sings,
“She destroyed the show and my life with that tweet,” Barr told the Post. “She will never get enough until she consumes my liver with a fine Chianti.”
Barr was referring to remarks Gilbert made on May 29 in response to a series of early-morning tweets in which Barr insulted Valerie Jarrett and repeated slurs about Democratic donor George Soros. Roseanne ultimately deleted the tweets and apologized for them.
Gilbert later said on Twitter that the remarks were “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.”

The minimalist new visual finds the rapper, alongside a silent friend as the two groove together, inside a barebones room while red lights pulsate on and off to the beat, which enhances the foreboding vibe that’s reminiscent of the song’s horror film namesake.

Some weeks, Better Things likes to turn the spotlight onto the supporting characters, or at least to acknowledge that Sam Fox isn’t a wholly perfect heroine. Some weeks, though, we get a tale like “Monsters in the Moonlight,” about how many indignities Sam has to endure from everyone else in Sam’s life.

“We had an extensive dialogue with the Guild today. We presented its leadership with our formal counterproposals in a draft agreement, and we hope they will follow-up in good faith to move this process forward,” said Ata Executive Director Karen Stuart in a statement. The WGA declined to comment.
Ata’s counterprosal, posted to its official site Thursday, doesn’t differ much from the informal counterproposal made public on March 12. Talent Agencies aren’t backing down on their commitment to package deals. However, the latest document explains in greater detail how they say they will provide transparency and greater consent for writers when it comes to packaging.
Boone was found dead at her home of an apparent heart attack. Boone had most recently worked as showrunner on the third season of the Disney Channel series starring Raven-Symone.
“Eunetta was a pioneer and an inspiration to everyone she met,” Raven-Symone said. “She was a masterful storyteller, an empathetic leader and a beacon of light to so many. I’m sending love and my deepest sympathies to Eunetta’s
The Association of Talent Agents made counter-proposals at Thursday’s session that contain provisions for more accountability and transparency by agencies for clients including giving writers consent over whether a television show is packaged, as previously promised. But they do not eliminate agencies receiving packaging fees or having ownership interest in affiliate production companies — which are key demands from the WGA.
It’s unclear whether those proposals will be enough for the WGA leaders to reach a deal. The two sides made little progress in the five previous negotiating sessions to revamp the 43-year-old franchise agreement governing how agents represent writers.
Failure to reach a deal before April 7 means the agreement expires. That could have severe consequences because
But, as they found out on Thursday, there is a difference between anticipating a painful future and watching that feared reality come to pass. The ax fell at the film division with brutal efficiency, wiping away much of the senior leadership at Fox’s marketing, distribution, and consumer products arms. Some staffers, who had been engaging in gallows humor for weeks, burst into tears when they received the word in one-on-one meetings with human resources reps that their positions were being terminated. Others retreated to nearby bars to host impromptu
Applying math to art is always a foolhardy endeavor. But I can’t help looking at this season of Nine-Nine — one of the series’ best creative stretches ever, at an improbably advanced age — and think how much of it comes down to two versus three, or six versus seven. In previous years, the show had seven main characters to service, plus Hitchcock and Scully for jokes but rarely for story purposes.
“Well, marriage Number Two,” he says contemplatively, before alluding to cheating on his current wife. “My first marriage, I chose to leave. That’s not fucking up, that’s me moving on. Now, this time, I fucked up.
Five distinct Fox labels and a portion of their leadership have been welcomed into the Disney fold, the company said. This includes Twentieth Century Fox, Fox Family, Fox Searchlight Pictures, Fox 2000, and Blue Sky Studios.
The Elizabeth Gabler-run imprint Fox 2000 will be shuttered, Variety previously reported earlier in the day, though the late Thursday announcement from Disney noted Gabler will continue on through “the completion of the current slate.” Animation label Blue Sky Studios is expected to complete the release of two films in production, Variety reported last year, though its fate after that point is unknown.
Remaining studio leadership at labels like Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Animation, Pixar, Lucasfilm and Marvel remains unchanged. Fox Film lost a series of top leaders in marketing,
Janelle Monae will star in an untitled Lionsgate movie directed by the duo Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz.
The film will be produced by QC Entertainment’s Ray Mansfield and Sean McKittrick, along with Zev Foreman and Lezlie Wills. QC Entertainment produced “Get Out” and “BlacKkKlansman.” McKittrick also recently produced Jordan Peele’s “Us.”
Monae is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter who starred in “Hidden Figures” and “Moonlight.” Bush and Renz have worked on campaigns for the Mlk Memorial Foundation and Amnesty International, in addition to directing Jay-z’s music video “Kill Jay Z” and the police brutality PSA “Against the Wall,” starring Michael B. Jordan, Danny Glover, and Michael K. Williams. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
