  1. Another revival! Ralph Macchio and William Zabka have bills to pay are back as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. After competition from mainly streaming services, it's going to YouTube Red, the YouTube subscription service. Down-and-out Johnny reopens the Cobra Kai dojo and reignited his rivalry with a successful Daniel, who has struggles of his own. It's going to be a 10 episode half hour comedy series. Yes, comedy. Karate too of course. It's being written by the minds behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar.
  2. http://deadline.com/2017/11/amazon-the-lord-of-the-rings-tv-series-multi-season-commitment-1202207065/ Amazon have reached a deal with the Tolkien Estate, Harper Collins and New Line. It's for a series set prior to Fellowship of the Ring and an additional unspecified potential spin-off. Apparently it will not be limited to material from the books and can include new material featuring the characters. This actually comes from the Tolkien Estate approaching studios rather than studios seeking permission. They had also approached Netflix and HBO. It seems Amazon are paying $200 million for the rights. Just the rights. Actually making the thing will be an additional hefty cost.
  3. From the studio that brought you the best Resident Evil movie series starring Milla Jojovich OF ALL TIME and Netfix. Not a lot of detail yet, but they plan to do exciting things such as "expand the universe" and "deepen the existing mythology". It'll explore the dark inner workings of Umbrella Corporation and the new world order. The latter are wrestlers, right?
  4. It's not got a name yet, but the prequel is getting a prequel. Diego Luna is returning to play his Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, in a show for Disney+, the streaming service. It's set to be a spy thriller during the formative years of the Rebellion.
  5. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a552739/lovefilm-instant-to-become-amazon-prime-instant-video.html I used to be with Lovefilm, but left when they stopped renting games. At the time their streaming video service was nice as an added bonus on the subscription, but not something I'd have paid for on its own due to a poor library and apps only available on a very limted number of devices with rubbish update support. Not sure if this will tempt me away from Netflix, their original programming (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development) blow away Amazon's rather uninspiring efforts in that area and without the introductory offer it's actually more expensive than Netflix (only by about £7 but still). The main argument for that price is the Amazon Prime delivery which i wouldn't particularly want. Still, more competition is good for us customers, not sure I'd want to be subscribed to two streaming services, but if they significantly improve their library I might take a look eventually.
  6. https://deadline.com/2021/03/elmore-leonard-city-primeval-fx-justified-followup-timothy-olyphant-raylan-givens-1234716630/ The team behind Justified are bringing another Elmore Leonard work to TV. The original book does not feature Raylan Givens, but they are going to adapt it to include him, with Timothy Olyphant open to returning as the character.
  7. Armando Iannucci & Sam Mendes are doing a pilot for HBO about superhero movie making. https://deadline.com/2022/08/armando-iannucci-sam-mendes-hbo-comedy-pilot-the-franchise-1235087329/
  8. New show on Apple from 18 February. A stylised workplace thriller. The concept of the "severance" of the title is that people can have their personal and work memories completely divided and kept separate by a surgical procedure. Obviously, things are not quite right with all this. Stars Adam Scott, Patricia Arquette, John Turturro, Christopher Walken, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman and Michael Chernus. Directed by Ben Stiller.
  9. Amazon have greenlit a Jack Reacher series. No casting news yet, but the first season will be based on the first novel, The Killing Floor. It'll be written by Nick Santora (of, erm, Scorpion and Prison Break), who will also be showrunner.
  10. I'd been seeing stories for a while about a new DC Universe Harley Quinn cartoon but didn't pay much attention. I just knew Penny off Big Bang Theory was playing the main role. Happened upon a trailer this morning and it's not what I expected, being full of swearing and violence. They've assembled a pretty impressive cast too Kaley Cuoco as Harley Alan Tudyk as Joker and Clayface Diedrich Bader as Batman Jason Alexander as Cy Borgman Christopher Meloni as James Gordon Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho and Felix Faust Giancarlo Esposito as Lex Luthor Wanda Sykes as Queen of Fables J. B. Smoove as Frank the Plant James Adomian as Bane James Wolk as Superman And a bunch more, I think some from other cartoons too
  11. AMC are bringing back Max Headroom. The drama version from the US rather than the C4 VJ version. Matt Frewer is returning as Max and Halt and Catch Fire co-creator Christopher Cantwell is writing and showrunning. So maybe there's a chance.
  12. A pilot for this was mentioned in the movie thread over a year ago, but now TNT have picked it up as a series. Stars Jennifer Connelly and a bunch of others.
  13. As the title suggests, it's a spin-off from Orphan Black. Some of the original people behind the scenes. Not sure if we can expect any original cast back. Probably not as central characters anyway.
  14. https://deadline.com/video/tokyo-vice-hbo-max-trailer/ Loosely based on American journalist Jake Adelstein's book about his first hand account of being on the beat with the Tokyo Metropolitan Police. Set in the late 90s. Adelstein is played by Ansel Elgort. Ken Watanabe is a detective in the organized crime division and mentor to Adelstein. Also features Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Rinko Kikuchi, Hideaki Ito, Show Kasamatsu, Tomohisa Yamashita, Shun Sugata, Masato Hagiwara, Ayumi Tanida, and Kosuke Toyohara. 3 episodes on 7 April, then 2 each Thursday until 28 April, with 3 again.
  15. Amazon come along with another hero show, based on a Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic. The show is developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. Stars Karl Urban, Elizabeth Shue, Antony Starr and a bunch more.
  16. Another GoT prequel is close to getting a pilot. This one is set 300 years before the show, about House Targaryen. Based on the Fire and Blood books. https://deadline.com/2019/09/house-targaryen-prequel-game-of-thrones-series-ryan-condal-george-rr-martin-hbo-1202732221/
  17. https://deadline.com/2021/09/krapopolis-hannah-waddingham-richard-ayoade-matt-berry-dan-harmon-animated-series-1234828618/ It's Dan Harmon, so some people giving their opinion on him in the last day in the Rick & Morty thread probably won't like it. It's about a family of humans, gods, and monsters in mythical ancient Greece. Starring Hannah Waddingham, Richard Ayoade, Matt Berry, Pam Murphy and Duncan Trussell.
  18. Personally enjoyed it. The bin burp and the severed arm wrestling were a bit shit, but otherwise it worked well as an introduction to the characters. Some people have criticized the somewhat hectic pace of the story but I personally feel that the whole intent was to introduce Rose and the Doctor and having her get caught up in the action right from the beginning allowed this to happen with plenty of pace. I don't think that a detailed story PLUS the introduction of the characters would've worked if they'd tried to squeeze it all into the first 45 minute episode. My 10 yr old son sat glued to the TV the entire 45 minutes, so on that count I think it worked as family entertainment - after all, if the programme only tried to appeal to the (now grown up) people who watched the old series it would probably fail terribly - the producers have to attract a new audience as well as catering for the original fans if it's to succeed. Seems to have trounced Ant 'n' Dec in the ratings though and almost all the word of mouth I've seen has been positive (apart from the balls-up that allowed Graham Norton's voice to intrude - I thought the baddies were Autons, not Nortons...). Have to see how it holds up over the coming weeks. What'd everyone else think?
  19. Star Trek adult animation. From Rick and Morty head writer Mike McMahan. It'll focus on the support crew on one of Starfleet's least important ships. McMahan is also the guy behind that twitter account which posted fake episode plots for an eighth TNG season.
  20. NWR has a 6-episode show coming to Netflix. Made back home in Denmark. It's a "neon-drenched noir", for a change. Production has already wrapped and it'll be out later this year. And it sounds like we can expect more from him and Netflix.
  21. Do we really not have a topic for this show? I couldn't find anything using the forum search. For those who might know nothing about John Oliver or the show it can probably be summed up like this: John Oliver, a comedian who cut his teeth on 'The Daily Show with John Stewart', hosts a news based entertainment series on HBO. The first season had some amazing stuff going on, can't help thinking of those poor space geckos, and the new second season is going strong too. Last night's episode on the tobacco industry was great, really highlighted some stuff I didn't know about and 'Jeff' the mascot is hilarious. Other highlights from the first season include longer segments like these: FIFA and the World Cup Eurovision As well as shorter focussed pieces like these: How is this still a thing? Ayn Rand Tony Abbot - President of the USA of Australia It's quite amazing that most of the episodes and some web exclusive stuff is all on YouTube. I've included a link for the lazy here.
  22. They're bringing back Gremlins. It'll be an animated series on the WarnerMedia streaming service. It's a prequel, about Mr. Wing, when he was a young man, and Gizmo.
  23. https://deadline.com/2019/07/jeff-bridges-to-star-as-retired-cia-officer-in-fx-drama-the-old-man-from-black-sails-co-creators-jon-steinberg-robert-levine-1202653849/ Jeff Bridges will be a retired CIA officer in a new FX drama. It comes from Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine, co-creators of Black Sails. Bridges is Dan Chase, who left the CA decades ago and now lives off the grid. Then an assassin tries to take him out and, I dunno, he uses his particular set of skills or something. Hopefully it turns out well.
  24. There was mention of this in the D+ thread a while back. AFAIK, it's not any kind of reboot or anything, but exists alongside the movies. Chance of Cage making a guest appearance? The main character is a 20 year old a Hispanic Latina-American played by Lisette Alexis. A DREAMer exploring mysterious family history. Now Catherine Zeta-Jones has signed on as another main character, a billionaire black-market antiquities expert and treasure hunter. https://deadline.com/2022/02/catherine-zeta-jones-star-national-treasure-disney-plus-series-1234927537/
