Alicia Keys to Produce Biopic of Choreographer Alvin Ailey

Alicia Keys to Produce Biopic of Choreographer Alvin Ailey
Fox Searchlight is developing a biopic of iconic choreographer Alvin Ailey with the support of the Ailey Organization.

Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys is producing with Susan Lewis through her Ak Worldwide production company along with Judy Kinberg, Rachel Cohen, and Jana Edelbaum from iDeal Partners.

Ailey, who was raised in rural Texas by a single mother, founded the interracial Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City in 1958 and helped popularize modern dance. His “Revelations” became one of the most-performed modern dance pieces in history.

Ailey received the Kennedy Center Honors in 1988, a year before he died at the age of 58 from AIDS-related complications. In 2014, President Barack Obama selected Ailey to be a posthumous recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Fox Searchlight and the producers will be working with the dance theater’s artistic directors Robert Battle and Emerita Judith Jamison on the untitled project. The studio and producers

Hellraiser: Judgment Finally Has A Release Date

When any actor has embodied an iconic character for an extended period of time, it’s only understandable that fans sometimes have difficulty adjusting to their successors. Even in the case of a vastly talented performer like Jackie Earle Haley, there were many who just couldn’t accept someone playing Freddy Krueger other than Robert Englund. Likewise, we ask for no tears, please, regarding the third actor to play Pinhead – it’s a waste of good suffering.

As you may or may not know, Paul T. Taylor has been hired to portray the most recognizable of all Cenobites in the upcoming Hellraiser: Judgment, which happens to be the tenth installment in the franchise that originated in the mind of the one and only Clive Barker. This time, though, it’s a returning Gary J. Tunnicliffe, director of 2011’s Revelations, who’ll be taking us from the pinnacle to the pit.

‘Big Little Lies’ Review: A Prime Suspect Emerges As Episode 3 Crosses the Line Between Passion and Rage

‘Big Little Lies’ Review: A Prime Suspect Emerges As Episode 3 Crosses the Line Between Passion and Rage
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Big Little Lies” Episode 3, “Living the Dream.”]

Sex and violence have been interlinked throughout “Big Little Lies,” but Episode 3 took on the connection directly. A powerful, slow-building scene at the heart of the episode between Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and Perry (Alexander Skarsgard) voiced the internal dilemma facing an abusive couple who doesn’t fully understand their dangerous desires. Does Celeste like her “dirty secret”? Is Perry always aware where the line is? Are they addicted to the danger? The pain? The violence? Or is Celeste merely trapped in an abusive relationship she doesn’t know how to free herself from?

Signs certainly point toward the latter, but the show’s darkly comic cuts emphasize the complicated connection between passion and rage. Immediately following Celeste and Perry’s quiet confession, we cut to Renata (Laura Dern) and Gordon (Jeffrey Nordling) having loud, angry sex in his office bathroom. Despite Renata’s concerns about having sex on his desk

Newswire: R.I.P. actor Michael Massee

Michael Massee, an actor whose growling voice and intimidating mien made him one of Hollywood’s go-to portrayers of villains, murderers, and serial killers, has died. According to Variety, Massee was 61.

Appearing in everything from Criminal Minds to Rizzoli & Isles, to memorable cameos in the Amazing Spider-Man movies and a lead role on the first season of 24, Massee was an expert at projecting unwholesome and predatory intent. Whether he was playing 24’s darkly comic Ira Gaines, trading quips and bullets with Jack Bauer, or the satanic villain on NBC’s mid-2000s miniseries, Revelations, Massee captured the reptilian glee of pure evil with a commitment and relish matched by few character actors of his generation.

Unfortunately, Massee will most likely go down in history not for his skill as a performer, but for his involvement in a famous on-set tragedy. While co-starring as Funboy in the 1993 ...

The Walking Dead Showrunner To Develop Damien

Good news Walking Dead fans, producer Glen Mazzara is sticking to his horror guns and lining up a continuation of the ever-sinister Omen franchise. Titled Damien, the show will center on the Antichrist, Damien Thorn, and his legacy as Satan’s son. Following the events of the preceding films, Damien will struggle with his horrific past while wrangling with the expectations his birth-right dictates.

This won’t be the first time that studio executives have gotten the defibrillators out for Richard Donnner’s terror classic, which featured Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as the unwitting adopted parents of the spawn of the devil. The film was a hit when it was released back in 1978, earning over $60 million in the U.S. alone. From there we got two sequels, the second of which starred Jurassic Park’s Sam Neill as the Antichrist. Two TV movies followed as well, including The Omen

The Omen heading for the small screen with Damien

A few years ago, it seemed that no horror movie would escape a 21st Century remake. Now it seems that no horror franchise is safe from a small screen adaptation. The likes of Hannibal, Bates Motel and From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series have gone down well with fans and now it looks like Damien himself will be heading to television sets near you according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Damien will follow the titular character, now an adult, facing up to his past and coming to terms with being the anti-Christ.

The Omen was directed by Richard Donner in 1976 and sparked controversy with the Catholic church and was famed for having a “cursed” production. The movie spawned 2 sequels, two made-for-tv movies in 1991 and 1995 and a remake in 2006.

This is not the first time that The Omen has been developed for TV with a production in 2005 starring Bill Pullman called Revelations

'The Omen' TV Series Coming from Former 'Walking Dead' Showrunner
Glen Mazzara, the former executive producer and showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, is developing a TV adaptation of the 1976 horror classic The Omen for Lifetime.

The pilot script will be written by Glen Mazzara, who will executive produce through his 44 Strong Productions company. The deal marks the first through his overall deal with Fox Television Studios. Ross Fineman (Lights Out) will also serve as executive producer.

The Omen, based on the novel by David Seltzer, starred Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as a couple who adopts young Damien (Harvey Stephens) after their lost their own child during birth, only to realize that

Walking Dead's Glen Mazzara Is Planning Omen TV Spin-Off

Walking Dead's Glen Mazzara Is Planning Omen TV Spin-Off
Because several sequels, TV movies and the 2006 remake clearly weren’t enough, someone now wants to turn 1976 horror classic The Omen into a TV series. The Walking Dead veteran Glen Mazzara is that someone, preparing a small screen follow-up called, predictably, Damien.The new drama – which will air on Us network Lifetime (a channel not usually known for its horror adaptations, though it has recently had success with a witch drama) – will focus on Damien Thorn, now a grown adult who is confronting the haunting events of his past. As he struggles with a new series of weird happenings, he has to face his true destiny as the Antichrist.It’s not the first time an attempt has been made to convert the Omen’s scares into a TV format: an eponymous 1995 TV movie aimed at a telly franchise but never went ahead. And in 2005, NBC crafted a miniseries called

8 Horror Movie-to-tv Series Adaptations That Didn't Quite Work Out

8 Horror Movie-to-tv Series Adaptations That Didn't Quite Work Out
With shows like The Walking Dead and American Horror Story scooping up high ratings and accolades like they’re going out of style, there’s no doubt that horror is dominating TV right now. It’s even becoming a big time trend to turn popular horror movies into their own series’, with spin-offs of Psycho and Silence of the Lambs already moving into their second seasons and others based on The Shining, Scream, The Exorcist and From Dusk Till Dawn currently in the works.

That said, the road to success hasn’t always been an easy one, when it comes to TV adaptations of beloved horror flicks. Over the years we’ve seen many of them come and go, either failing to catch on with audiences the way shows like Bates Motel and Hannibal have or even failing to ever find their way in front of the cameras.

Sundance 2013: ‘May in the Summer’ illuminates the beauty and fear of decisiveness

May in the Summer

Directed by Cherien Dabis

Screenplay by Cherien Dabis

2013, USA

May in the Summer is a strong second feature from writer/director Cherien Dabis, whose Amreeka debuted at Sundance in 2009. After an uneasy and clunky start, the second half effectively blends the desperation of decision with a spectacular visual sense of discovery.

May (Dabis) is a successful writer with one book under her belt who journeys from New York to her family home in Amman, Jordan for her imminent wedding. Her long divorced parents (Hiam Abbass, Bill Pullman) and her two sisters (Nadine Malouf and Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat) must come together to support her. May’s mother is still wounded 8 years after being abandoned by her husband and has retreated into Christianity for respite. So it comes as no surprise to May that she is vehemently opposed to her marrying a man of Muslim descent.

The Sdcc 2012 Fright Schedule And Beyond – Saturday

Well, Saturday’s schedule for this year’s San Diego Comic Con is now live. So far, we’ve been reporting horror specific events and panels scheduled for the convention. Saturday’s schedule is interesting, though. While they have enough fright themed panels slated for the day, we noticed that Saturday would be better presented as a mixed bag. With everything from Django Unchained and True Blood, to the much anticipated Silent Hill movie sequel and a nerdsplosive panel featuring Roger Corman And William Shatner, Saturday looks like it’ll hold up it’s end of the bargain as being an all out blast!
