Once upon a time, Chucky, the Child’s Play TV series, was going to arrive in 2020. That didn’t happen thanks to the pandemic, and the show hasn’t even begun filming yet.

Hasta la vista, live-action – here comes a Terminator anime series! The Terminator film franchise has been met with diminishing returns for years now, and Skydance – the production company responsible for the series – has taken note.

‘Clarice’ Trailer: The Silence is Over in this ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Sequel Series

A new Clarice trailer dropped during the Super Bowl over the weekend, and it’s a trailer that’s practically screaming, “HEY, REMEMBER SILENCE OF THE LAMBS?!” in all caps. The trailer has Rebecca Breeds as FBI Agent Clarice Starling recounting her traumatic childhood story of trying to save a lamb from slaughter, and even goes ahead and throws in a quick shot recreating the Silence of the Lambs poster, where a moth perches right on Clarice’s lips. Hell, even the font is the same font used for th...

In 2019, we learned that CBS All Access was developing a TV adaptation of The Man Who Fell to Earth, based on Walter Tevis’s 1963 novel and Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 sci-fi cult classic film version. That streaming service is being rebranded to Paramount+, but the show is still in the works – and it has now found its star.

‘Pacific Rim: The Black’ Teaser: Get Back in the Jaeger With Netflix’s Anime Series Next Month

Pacific Rim has gone full circle.

‘Alien Nation’ Update: Jeff Nichols Turned His Film Remake into a 10-Episode TV Pitch

Jeff Nichols, the filmmaker behind movies like Take Shelter, Mud, and Midnight Special, is one of the best directors who isn’t quite a household name yet. But his next planned project, a big budget remake of the 1988 sci-fi buddy cop film Alien Nation, seemed poised to launch his career to the next level. Unfortunately, that movie ended up becoming a casualty of Disney’s acquisition of Fox, which was a big disappointment – but the project has since mutated into a different form. According to Ni...

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ Animated Series in the Works, Says Robert Rodriguez

For people who were amped about the indie film boom of the 1990s, From Dusk Till Dawn represented an exciting new development in the careers of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Years before the failed 2007 experiment that was Grindhouse, the two indie wunderkinds teamed up to make a unique B-movie that shifted from a straightforward crime thriller into an all-out vampire horror film. Now, 25 years later, Rodriguez says that a From Dusk Till Dawn animated series is in development. Read hi...

‘Clarice’ Trailer: The ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Story Continues on CBS

The Silence of the Lambs now has a direct sequel – in TV show form. The upcoming CBS series Clarice hopes to be an immediate follow-up to Jonathan Demme’s Oscar-winning thriller, which means it will have absolutely nothing to do with Hannibal Lecter. As you’ll recall, Hannibal escapes at the end of Silence, and goes into hiding for years. On top of that, the rights to Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter books are a bit of a mess, which means the folks behind Clarice can’t even mention Lecter. Instea...

‘Blindspotting’ TV Show Finds Its Cast; Rafael Casal Reprising His Role From the Movie
