Under the Dome
The adaptation of Stephen King‘s epic story Under the Dome has found its lead! Mike Vogal (Cloverfield) has signed on to play Barbie, an Army veteran who is in Chester’s Mill on a mysterious mission. Under the Dome will be featured as a 13 episode mega-series on CBS this summer!
Thomas Kretschmann (The River) has signed on to play the great vampire hunter Van Helsing in NBC‘s version of Dracula. He will be hunting the Count, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. The new series is set in the 1890s, with Dracula masking as an American businessman in London. Van Helsing is “a brilliant professor with a cool exterior who is obsessed with revenge,” which “makes him more of a threat to the public than to Dracula.”
Josh Halloway is no longer LOST in Hollywood! He has just scored the lead in the upcoming CBS drama Intelligence. The drama centers on U.S. Cyber Command, a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift: a microchip that has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The series will be written by Michael Seitzman (North Country)
Maiara Walsh (Mean Girls 2) will play Wichita, a natural con-woman and tough girl who with her younger sister Little Rock (Izabela Vidovic) teams up with Columbus (Tyler Ross) to survive the zombie apocalypse and search for survivors. Emma Stone played the role of Wichita in the original film. Original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are spearheading the show for Amazon.
Red Brick Road
What would you get if you crossed over Wizard of Oz and Game of Thrones? Who knows but apparently someone thinks it’ll work! Warner Horizon Television has picked up the rights to the show and will base the show upon
“a continuation of the Wizard of Oz story but told in a Game of Thrones fashion, filled with politics, intrigue and violence”.
The idea is being reported as coming from comic book and concept artist Rob Prior, whose photorealistic work began life on eighties Dungeons & Dragons titles, before appearing on numerous covers throughout the nineties including the Terminator series, Heavy Metal and more.We’ll see how this one turns out!
Stay tooned 😛
