Lincoln: NBC's Bone Collector TV Series Cast and Details

Joseph Baxter Mar 14, 2019

NBC's Lincoln will adapt The Bone Collector, the 1999 crime thriller based on the novel by Jeffery Deaver.

The Bone Collector is about to be collected by NBC. The Peacock Network is moving forward with a serial television adaptation of the Jeffery Deaver crime novel-turned 1999 movie, which starred Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. However, the small screen adaptation will brandish the title, Lincoln, named after investigator main character Lincoln Rhyme.

Last November, NBC committed to bringing the murky murder mystery of The Bone Collector to television with a premium script – adapting Deaver’s original 1997 novel of the same name – by the duo of VJ Boyd and Mark Bianculli. The series – a production of Universal Television and Sony Pictures Television in association with Keshet Studios – will see the scribes joined by executive producers in Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott, and Rachel Kaplan.

Box Office: ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Dancing Past ‘Equalizer 2’ to $30 Million-Plus Opening

Box Office: ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ Dancing Past ‘Equalizer 2’ to $30 Million-Plus Opening
In true popcorn-season form, it’ll be a battle of the sequels at the domestic box office this weekend.

Universal’s “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” is taking a chance at the top spot against fellow newcomers “The Equalizer 2” and “Unfriended: Dark Web.”

The follow-up to 2008’s jukebox musical “Mamma Mia!” is tracking for a three-day tally between $30 million and $36 million when it opens in over 3,200 locations. A $30 million-plus debut would be a jump on its predecessor’s $27 million start. Much like the hit Broadway musical it was based on, “Mamma Mia” became a box office smash, earning $615 million worldwide on a $52 million budget. Though it pocketed an impressive $144 million in North America, “Mamma Mia” found even greater success overseas, where Swedish pop group Abba has a huge following. At the time, it was the highest-grossing film directed by a woman (Phyllida Lloyd), until it was surpassed by

‘Dark Web: Unfriended’ Trailer: In Hindsight, the Internet May Have Been a Bad Idea — Watch

‘Dark Web: Unfriended’ Trailer: In Hindsight, the Internet May Have Been a Bad Idea — Watch
“Unfriended” only cost $1 million to make and grossed $64 million, which is to say that a sequel was inevitable. Blumhouse has delivered three years later, with “Unfriended: Dark Web” premiering at South by Southwest a few months back. Watch the found-footage horror film’s first trailer below.

Dark Web” concerns a teenager (Colin Woodell) who learns that his new laptop may have been stolen — and that its previous owner is watching his every move. In his SXSW review, IndieWire’s Eric Kohn wrote that the film — which, like its predecessor, takes place entirely on a desktop computer — “manages to turn the same gimmick into another jittery ride” and predicted that more “desktop thrillers” will be arriving soon.

Stephen Susco makes his directorial debut with the film after priving his horror bona fides by writing “The Grudge,” “The Grudge 2,” and “Texas Chainsaw 3D.” Betty Gabriel of “Get Out” and Rebecca Rittenhouse

The Grudge Reboot Scares Up Summer 2019 Release Date

The Grudge reboot has locked down a 2019 summer release date. Sony is currently hoping to get in on the good days that horror has been enjoying at the box office in recent years by revisiting something that has done well for them in the past. They're currently getting the pieces in place so their reboot of The Grudge can get underway. It's apparently going well, as the studio has locked down an August release date for next year, putting it at the tail end of the summer movie season.

Sony will release The Grudge on August 16 of next year. Currently, the only other major release coming that day is from Universal in the form of an untitled event movie. It's possible that whatever this event movie is, or was going to be, Universal may end up moving it since it hasn't been announced yet. Or, since event implies some sort of blockbuster affair,

The Grudge Reboot Gets Insidious Icon Lin Shaye

The Grudge Reboot Gets Insidious Icon Lin Shaye
Lin Shaye, best known for her work in the Insidious franchise, has joined the upcoming reboot of The Grudge. Sony is getting ready to head into production on a new version of The Grudge, which originally debuted for American audiences in 2004. The remake has been in the works for a while now, but seems to be coming together rather quickly and is starting to take shape. Shaye, the latest addition to the cast, is another modern horror icon who has boarded this increasingly intriguing "reimagining" of the supernatural tale.

Recently, it was announced that Andrea Riseborough and Demian Bichir will star in this new take on The Grudge, alongside John Cho. Bichir has become something of a staple in modern horror offerings himself, having starred in Alien: Covenant last year, and also set to feature in the upcoming Conjuring spin-off The Nun. With the addition of Lin Shaye, who has

"We are so excited about this new adaptation. We went back to the original source material to deliver a relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia."

Sony's 2004 The Grudge movie was based on the 2002 Japanese horror hit Ju-On: The Grudge, written and directed by Takashi Shimizu, who would also

‘Unfriended: Dark Web’ Review: Another Blumhouse Desktop Thriller, and the Internet Is Still Pretty Evil — SXSW 2018

A classic horror trope: Secure, private spaces can be infiltrated by dreadful forces and when danger lurks in showers, bedrooms, and suburban neighborhoods, nothing’s really safe. Filmmakers inevitably came for the computer screen and that was 2014’s “Unfriended,” a new-age found-footage horror movie unfolding exclusively on a desktop screen. The unexpected commercial hit found a group of friends dealing with a ghostly threat over frantic Skype conversations and Facebook chats, reinventing old chills for the social media age. Made on the cheap and plugged into a millennial vernacular, it was only a matter of time before there was a sequel.

The Grudge Reboot Gets Eyes of My Mother Director

The Grudge Reboot Gets Eyes of My Mother Director
Nearly six years after The Grudge reboot was first announced by Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures, a director has finally been found. Filmmaker Nicolas Pesce, whose critically-acclaimed directorial debut The Eyes Of My Mother debuted at Sundance last year, has signed on to direct The Grudge reboot, and rewrite the script. While no production schedule or release date has been announced yet, it seems this horror reboot is finally moving forward in the right direction, after years of languishing in development hell.

Deadline reports that Nicolas Pesce will rewrite the existing script, which was first worked on by Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train), who came aboard to write the script in 2014. No details have been given about the existing script, or Nicolas Pesce's new vision for the project, or how it may diverge from the original Japanese movie, or the American remake.

DVD Review – Lights Out (2016)

Lights Out, 2016.

Directed by David F. Sandberg.

Starring Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Maria Bello, Billy Burke, Alexander Dipersia, Lotta Losten, Alicia Vela-Bailey and Andi Osho.


A young boy is haunted by the malevolent spirit that drove his older sister away, forcing her to return home and help save her brother.

Based on a popular YouTube short film that appeared a few years ago, Lights Out is David F. Sandberg’s debut full-length movie and shows that the filmmaker may be a future genre name to watch as he clearly has a grasp of what makes us (or the young versions of us) scared once the lights go out. Of course, it helps that The Conjuring/Insidious mastermind James Wan is on board as a producer and you can see his fingerprints over a lot of the movie, especially in the framing, use of lighting and the jump scares. However,

Watch: First Trailer For 'Misconduct' Starring Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Malin Akerman, Alice Eve, And More

Shintaro Shimosawa, the producer of "The Grudge" and "The Grudge 2" and TV shows "The Following" and "Intelligence," has ventured behind the camera to make his directorial debut. The upside is that he has a helluva cast to work with. The downside is that the result is "Misconduct."

It looks pretty low grade all around, but hey, if Pacino can score a Golden Globe nomination for "Danny Collins," anything is possible. "Misconduct" will arrive in 2016. Watch below.

Warm Bodies (2013) Review

By Jennica Lynn Johnson

After seeing the trailer for Warm Bodies (2013), I made a mental note to steer clear of it in movie theaters. Zombies-- although they have had their popularity throughout horror history-- have become significantly trendy within the horror community for the past decade with movies such as 28 Weeks Later (2007), Zombieland (2009), and Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies (2012). By the time the third season of The Walking Dead aired in 2012, it was clear that the end of the current zombie craze could be upon us. I suspected that Warm Bodies would be the last nail in the coffin of what started out as a delightfully gory ride.

I’m not entirely sure why I expected Warm Bodies to be such a failure. Perhaps I feared that it would be another teen romance movie with just a dash of horror elements. Or maybe I thought the leading lady, Teresa Palmer,
