USA Network Gives Straight-To-Series Order For ‘Bourne’ Spin-Off Series ‘Treadstone’

The people behind the Jason Bourne franchise, which includes the hits ‘Identity,’ ‘Supremacy,’ and ‘Ultimatum,’ have tried desperately to make the spy films work without the titular character played by Matt Damon. First, they tried with “The Bourne Legacy,” starring Jeremy Renner, but that crashed and burned, leading to Damon’s triumphant return in “Jason Bourne.” But now, they’re going to try to spin off the franchise yet again, this time on TV.

Bourne spin-off Treadstone given series order

The Jason Bourne franchise has now expanded to television as USA Network has given a straight-to-series order for Treadstone, a spin-off series about the shadowy CIA program that Jason Bourne worked for as a covert spy and assassin. The series comes from Heroes creator Tim Kring and Universal.

Written by Kring, Treadstone explores the origin story and present-day actions of a CIA black ops program known as Operation Treadstone — a covert program that uses behavior-modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. The first season follows sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.

Treadstone had originally been given a pilot order earlier this year, but USA Network decided to give it a straight-to-series order after Upc began to negotiate a deal with Amazon Studios for international distribution for the spin-off. Production on the series is expected to begin in 2019.

"Jason Bourne: Treadstone"

According to USA Network, a full season of "Treadstone", focusing on the deep state, 'CIA black ops' organization from the "Jason Bourne" movies, will go straight to series, with production starting in 2019:

"...'Treadstone' will focus on the exploits of 'Operation Treadstone', the program responsible for turning 'Jason Bourne' into a bone-cracking super spy. The first season is reported to follow various other sleeper agents as they're awakened to resume their missions..."

Formed after the Viet Nam war, 'Treadstone' was a top-secret black ops program of the 'Central Intelligence Agency' (CIA), using a behavior-modification program to break down morality, while recruiting 'Us Service' members to turn them into superhuman assassins, in direct response to the 'Congressional Act' which banned the Us from partaking in extra-judicial killings.

'Jason Bourne' appeared in 3 novels by author Robert Ludlum, with a follow-up series,

Film Review: ‘Mile 22’

Film Review: ‘Mile 22’
The heroes of explosive action-espionage thrillers tend to be men of few words, but Mark Wahlberg breaks the pattern in “Mile 22,” a broken-limb, flying-glass dirty-ops spectacular. He plays Jimmy Silva, a walking lethal weapon who leads a U.S. intelligence squad so elite and undercover and ultra-badass that it has severed all legal connection to the government.

Jimmy, a hard-bitten agent and assassin, never misses the chance to toss off some rapid-fire jabber about history, violence, nuclear weapons, his trio of ex-wives — you name it. If you listen to his words, he’s actually rather philosophical (for a quasi-sociopathic government killer), and the fact that he comes off as someone badgering people on an amphetamine jag isn’t necessarily a strike against him. It’s just a sign that he cares. We see a home-movie montage of his childhood — hyperactivity! violence! orphaned at the age of 11! — and the question

Sources say that Universal Cable Productions and Paramount Television, which co-produce the series, are said to be shopping the show for a potential fourth season. Discussions are said to be underway at Paramount Network, but a source with knowledge of the situation said that it is unlikely to land there.

Movie Review – Inhumanity (2018)

Inhumanity, 2018.

Directed by Joe McReynolds.

Starring Darcel Danielle, Diana Rose, Ford Austin, and Leviticus Wolfe.

Synopsis:

A deranged serial killer becomes enmeshed in a secret government conspiracy as he is pursued by one of his former victims.

Inhumanity is difficult to even categorize. Probably the least misleading thing to say it is broadly a neo-noir film with affinities to the Coens and Tarantino. Yet, oddly, despite being set in Texas and having a realistic feel it is closer to Tarantino in its emphasis on action, fantastic violence, and hilarious dialogue than the Coens’ Blood Simple with its naturalism.

Darcel Danielle plays Jessa Dixon a woman that serial killer Six Pack Sam (Leviticus Wolfe) kidnaps and almost immediately kills. But before he can choke Jessa to death, Sam is surrounded and kidnapped by mysterious agents of the government. The exact contours of the conspiracy remain murky for a lot of the film but essentially Sam,

Interview: Brad Anderson for ‘The Negotiator’

Out today is The Negotiator starring Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike. Hamm plays Mason Skiles, a former diplomat confronting his demons in 1980s Beirut (the city the film was originally named after). Pike is CIA agent Sandy Crowder, joined by an impressive line up of Dean Norris, Shea Whigham and Larry Pine.

Brad Anderson directs from a script by Tony Gilroy (acclaimed writer of the Jason Bourne franchise). Anderson’s career has covered many genres (his CV includes Transsiberian and Stonehearst Asylum), and when we sat down to chat with him that diversity seemed to be a great place to start…

Thn: This is your first time making a political thriller. How did you find the experience?

Brad Anderson: Basically all the films I’ve done over the years have been different genres, from a horror movie to a drama to a period thriller. I like mixing it up a bit for myself,

Review: Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)

Tom Cruise is back as the super-spy Ethan Hunt for the sixth time in the most thrilling and action packed Mission: Impossible film yet.

In a direct sequel to Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015), Ethan Hunt and his all-star team of Imf operatives are once again trying to save the world from nuclear armageddon in returning writer-director Christopher McQuarrie’s action opus of paranoid intelligence agencies, high-wire stunts and of course rubber masks. Famed for his daredevil streak, Tom Cruise without a doubt proves he is still Hollywood’s leading action man in a gripping spy thriller that explores dark and gritty territory, but one that doesn’t mind having a bit of fun along the way. Mission: Impossible Fallout the sixth entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise is a simply dizzyingly brilliant action masterpiece.

The first Mission: Impossible (1996) hit cinemas twenty-two years ago. Tom Cruise was thirty-four years old, and

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens

The Academy Invites 928 New Members, from Daniel Kaluuya to Sufjan Stevens
In an astonishing move to swell the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership ranks, a record 928 artists and executives from 59 countries have been invited to join this year. The branches have increasingly actively sought eligible people to invite to join the Academy, but the Board of Governors makes the final call; this year, they did not invite Kobe Bryant to join although he won an Oscar for animated short “Dear Basketball.”

Clearly, people of color (38 percent) and women (49 percent) are among the many invites, as the Academy continues to address its long-term white-male dominance. As always, actors make up the largest branch of the Academy, but many new members also come from overseas.

In 2017, the Academy invited 744 new members.

Seventeen Oscar winners are among the new members and 92 Oscar nominees. Nine of the 17 branches invited more women than men. The percentage of women in the Academy has risen
