THURSDAY, JANUARY 9

JUSTIFIED---FX programming president Nick Grad said "the plan right now" is Season 6 will be the last, 'What shows are going to be talked about in the next 20 years?' If you're making a great, 80-hour movie, it has to have a beginning, middle and end. Going out at the right time is going to make your show last forever — we want to make shows that stand the test of time."
Season 5's premiere drew 2.84 million viewers which is down 21% from Season 4's premiere.





THE STRAIN---photo released for the FX/Guillermo del Toro series in which a CDC team battles an ancient vampire plague in New York. Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro and Sean Astin star.





INTELLIGENCE---the Josh Holloway series premiere drew 16.5 million viewers which is the highest-rated new series premiere.





BOSTON STRANGLER---Mark Romanek (NEVER LET ME GO) is in talks to direct the movie about the 1960s Boston serial killer. Casey Affleck is the star/executive producer.

THE GAMBLER---John Goodman joins the cast of the remake of the 1974 James Caan movie about a college professor with a gambling addiction who gets involved with the Las Vegas mob. Mark Wahlberg, Brie Larson and Jessica Lange also star.

ROSEMARY'S BABY---Zoe Saldana (STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS) will star in the four-hour NBC miniseries based on the Ira Levin novel which was made into a 1968 movie that starred Mia Farrow. The miniseries is set in Paris with the script by Scott Abbot and James Wong.

INFLUX---20th Century Fox bought the movie rights to the sci fi novel about a scientist who is imprisoned after inventing a gravity-reflecting machine. He must free himself and other rebel scientists to combat the mysterious organization Board of Technology Control which prevents new technology from disrupting society.

POINT BREAK---Gerard Butler is in negotiations to play Patrick Swayze's role, Bodhi, in the remake of the 1991 movie.

CAPTIVE---Bruce Willis is in talks to star in this movie about a US real estate tycoon who is kidnapped and held for ransom in Brazil as a detective tries to find him.

THE CROW---star Luke Evans said about the remake movie, "Well, we just want to be as authentic and loyal to the original comic as possible, and that means the story will be different. It'll be different from what people are expecting. It's not about us ripping off the Brandon Lee movie, that stands alone as a brilliant piece of cult film and a great performance, but we're going back to the book, the original book. And that's exciting because we're bringing to the screen a lot of parts of the story that were never really told..."

THE WHITE ORCHID---new movie about a sheriff and shy social services investigator who team up to investigate the murder of a beautiful blonde. John Carroll Lynch and Olivia Thirlby star.

Seriously? Am I the only one completely tired of vampires (and zombies, to address both of the painfully overused creatures of the 21st century)?

Hmmm. I thought vampires and zombies were the same thing. I mean, what happens if a vampire bites a zombie and vice versa. Hey, I got a great new idea smile

I have no problem with more vampires and more zombies, I'm just wary of the vampires being sparkly namby-pamby tweens and Zombies without any "bite" (so to speak...at one point they were scary social commentary, now - largely - they are just just stupid devices to see how much gore the filmmaker can get away with). They just need to be made scary again.
