Max Landis Accused By Multiple Women Of Sexual Abuse

Max Landis Accused By Multiple Women Of Sexual Abuse
Max Landis, the screenwriter known for Bright and Chronicle, is coming under fire for his alleged mistreatment of women – again. The latest allegations, as detailed today in the Daily Beast, include charges that he sexually assaulted and mentally tortured several girlfriends, at least one of whom he allegedly threatened to kill. The Lapd, however, says that it has not received any complaints about him, and his reps did not return phone calls.

The latest of eight women to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Landis is actress Ani Baker, an ex-girlfriend who posted on social media that “this person is really destructive,” while telling the Daily Beast that she has heard from other women “that I had never heard of who are like, ‘I too was tortured by this person.’”

“If you have found my page via Max Landis, hi,” Baker wrote on social media. “I’m going

Robert Kirkman’s Oblivion Song Set for Movie Adaptation at Universal

Joseph Baxter Jun 11, 2019

Oblivion Song, a (non-zombie) apocalypse comic from Robert Kirkman, is getting a movie treatment from studio Universal.

Oblivion Song, an Image Comics title introduced relatively recently, is already set for live-action glory; a notion that makes a lot more sense when you realize that the comic is the creation of Robert Kirkman, the mastermind behind Image’s The Walking Dead and the AMC cable TV franchise it spawned. However, this particular Kirkman adaptation is bound for the big-screen with studio Universal, which is partnering with Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment.

Robert Kirkman will help develop the Oblivion Song movie via Skybound, joined by company cohorts David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst, all of whom will work with Universal’s Jon Mone and Lexi Barta to bring the apocalyptic comic to life. While the director’s chair is still vacant, the script will be penned by an up-and-coming screenwriter in Sean O’Keefe,

Robert Kirkman’s ‘Oblivion Song’ Comic In Works As Movie At Universal

  • Deadline
Skybound Entertainment and Universal Pictures said Tuesday they are developing Oblivion Song, a movie based on Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici’s sci-fi comic book series. Sean O’Keefe, who penned the upcoming Peter Berg-Mark Wahlberg pic Wonderland, will write the script.

Published by Skybound and Image Comics, Oblivion Song premiered at a monthly series in March 2018 that was written by The Walking Dead creator Kirkman and illustrated by De Felici. The story takes place one decade after 300,000 residents of Philadelphia suddenly were trapped in Oblivion. Frantic recovery efforts were launched by the government, but, after a few futile years, they were abandoned. Nathan Cole, however, hasn’t given up. He risks his life again and again trying to save those lost souls in Oblivion’s apocalyptic hellscape – but is that the real reason he can’t resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

Shocking The Walking Dead #192 Rushed Back to Print by Image/Skybound Entertainment with Commemorative Cover

If you're not caught up with The Walking Dead comic book series, or you haven't read the series at all and wish to avoid The Walking Dead spoilers altogether, then go no further, for there are Major Spoilers Ahead.

It's something we knew would happen one day. Even in the early years of this website, it's something that Robert Kirkman told Daily Dead would happen. It's something he was planning to do for a long time. But that doesn't make it any less shocking now that it's happened.

Rick Grimes has been killed in The Walking Dead comic book series.

This may come as no surprise to readers of issue #191, which came out on May 1st from Skybound. That issue ended with Rick Grimes being shot in the chest in his own bed by a nighttime visitor, Sebastian Milton, who was none too pleased that Rick's speech to prevent a

‘The Walking Dead’ Comics Shocker: The Final Fate Of Rick Grimes Revealed…

  • Deadline
‘The Walking Dead’ Comics Shocker: The Final Fate Of Rick Grimes Revealed…
Spoiler Alert: This article includes key revelations from issue No. 192 of The Walking Dead, which goes on sale this week.

Ex-lawman Rick Grimes has been M.I.A. on AMC’s The Walking Dead since last November (when star Andrew Lincoln left the powerhouse series to focus on the upcoming tie-in feature film trilogy) but that’s not the case in the original version of The Walking Dead, the monthly Skybound/Image Comics series that will reach its 200th issue early next year.

Every issue of the history-making Image Comics series has been written by Robert Kirkman, the creator of both The Walking Dead universe and its most beloved citizen, Rick Grimes. The flinty Kentucky lawman became the earnest everyman hero of the brand but Kirkman maintained over the year that he never envisioned Grimes outliving The Walking Dead saga and its savageries.

Last month, The Walking Dead issue No. 191 hit store

AMC To Announce Details Of The Walking Dead’s Rick Grimes Movie Trilogy Soon

It seems news of The Walking Dead‘s movie trilogy for Rick Grimes is right around the corner.

Or so says social media guru Johnny O’Dell, who recently fielded questions about AMC’s Walking Dead saga as part of Skybound’s mailbag feature (h/t ComicBook.com). Alas, O’Dell didn’t have much to share, but he did confirm that an official announcement will be made sooner rather than later.

It isn’t much to go on, but with The Walking Dead season 10 currently slated for a premiere in October, and the fifth season of Fear The Walking Dead expected to commence on Saturday, June 2nd, we fully expect AMC to divulge more details on that Rick Grimes movie trilogy during the summer.

Until then, we’ll just have to trust O’Dell’s judgment…

We promise you guys will get an update sooner rather than later. Seriously.

Skybound Cuts Ties With StarBreeze,Overkill's The Walking Dead Didnt Meet Company Standards

  • Cinelinx
Skybound Games has had enough and decided to cut ties with the studio behind PayDay and OverKills the Walking Dead.

So, it finally happened like we knew it would...Skybound Entertainment released a statement today terminating their contract with Starbreeze Studios. After the cancellation of the console version of OverKill's The Walking Dead and the very poor performance and reviews of the PC version, I think we can all admit we saw this coming.

The Skybound team had this to say. "Our creators and their stories are the core of Skybound, and since 2014 we have worked hard to expand the world of The Walking Dead into an exceptional Co-op Action Fps. We did our best to work with Starbreeze and resolve many issues that we saw with the game, but ultimately Overkill’S The Walking Dead did not meet our standards nor is it the quality that we were promised.
