THE WIDOW---trailer released for the Amazon miniseries starring Kate Beckinsale.

STAR TREK---Michelle Yeoh will return as Philippa Georgiou in an untitled CBS All Access spinoff series. Yeoh said, “I’m so excited to continue telling these rich Star Trek stories. Being a part of this universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play. I can’t wait to see where it all goes — certainly I believe it will go ‘where no woman has ever gone before!’”





THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK---Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga will co-star in undisclosed roles in THE SOPRANOS prequel movie.





RATCHED---Sharon Stone and Cynthia Nixon will co-star with Sarah Paulson in the Nurse Ratched prequel to ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE---Christopher McQuarrie will return to write and direct MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7 and 8 back-to-back.

PERRY MASON---Matthew Rhys (THE AMERICANS) will star in the HBO miniseries based on the novels. The original tv series starring Raymond Burr ran on CBS from 1957-1966.





PROJECT BLUE BOOK---the Robert Zemeckis UFO series drew 3.2 million viewers and had the most-watched ratings for a scripted cable series premiere for 2018/2019.

TRUE DETECTIVE---Season 3 ratings were very disappointing with the premiere drawing 1.4 million viewers. Season 2's premiere had 3.2 million, and Season 1's premiere had 2.3 million viewers. Creator Nic Pizzolatto said he has ideas for Season 4.

HALLOWEEN--producer Ryan Turek confirmed the fan theory that Dr. Sartain helped Michael escape, "Sartain orchestrated all of this. It's funny because we were talking about the roles and role-reversal. I always called Sartain the anti-Loomis. He was a doctor who came up under Loomis and who studied but his whole belief system and what he wanted to explore with Michael was obviously much different than what Loomis ever wanted. And then Laurie became Loomis in a way. She was the obsessive, crazed, gun-toting, "We need to get this evil off the streets" persona. But, yeah. I think what the answer you're looking for - did Sartain let him off the bus? And it's like, yeah. Absolutely."

UNCHARTED---Dan Trachtenberg (10 CLOVERFIELD LANE) will replace Shawn Levy as the director of the Tom Holland movie based on the vid4eo game.

HANNIBAL---Mads Mikkelsen said creator Bryan Fuller is still trying to resurrect the cancelled tv series, "I think there’s always new hope. I haven’t heard anything specific. I know Bryan is still working on some ideas where we can find a new home for this. I also have a strong feeling that everybody who was involved in it would gladly pick up the glove again if that happens".

JUST DANCE---Screen Gems movie underway based on the video game.

THE VILLAINESS---Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment is developing a tv series remake of the South Korean movie about a female assassin.

KISS OF THE WOLF---tv series underway based on the novel.

SIX---tv series underway based on the graphic novel.

TRIVIA---ROMANCING THE STONE was a huge success in 1984 and launched the movie careers of Michael Douglas, cemented Kathleen Turner as a big movie star and was the first movie hit for director Robert Zemeckis. Zemeckis, who had been fired from COCOON, said ROMANCING THE STONE allowed him to make BACK TO THE FUTURE. The script was written by Diane Thomas, who was working as a waitress at the time.
Douglas was trying to be a movie leading man when ROMANCING THE STONE gave him the hit he needed. He showed his appreciation by buying a Porsche Carrera for Thomas, "As a gift to her, I bought her a Porsche, a new Porsche car. The difficult thing was the last time that I saw Diane was when she came over to show me the new car I got her...and three weeks later she got killed in the Porsche."

ROMANCING THE STONE was a big boost to the movie careers of Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and director Robert Zemeckis, who said ROMANCING THE STONE allowed him to make BACK TO THE FUTURE.






Douglas showed his appreciation to writer Diane Thomas, who was working as waitress while writing the script, by buying her a Porsche Carrera that she was killed in three weeks later in a car crash.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE---Christopher McQuarrie will return to write and direct MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7 and 8 back-to-back.

I have a lot of faith in this franchise. The films have been getting better as they’ve gone on, but I have to wonder if they’re pushing it. I hope McQuarrie has two amazing stories in mind (or one long one) and not just a series of stunts. I’d like to see them get away from “Ethan Hunt is betrayed/they are disavowed/someone is a mole” plots. And maybe not rehire Lorne Balfe…

But these are stronger than the Bond films at this point and Tom Cruise’s most reliable vehicles.

For what it's worth, True Detective Season 3 Episode 1 was a brilliant, slow-burning episode that I thoroughly enjoyed. From the beginning, you know what's about to happen. Waiting and watching how it unfolds is what makes this series interesting.

Michelle Yeoh can do no wrong. That she is going to be in another Star trek series is great. that she is going to be in Section 31 is AWESOME!!

If HBO wants more people to watch TRUE DETECTIVE they should bring back the babes fron s.one (nude of course)

Agreed across the board. I loved Fallout but thought it was a step down from Rogue Nation (which is the best in the series so far).

I didn't mind Balfe's music but I also didn't buy the score either. I'd love to hear Kraemer come back.
