Game of Thrones' Kit Harington is Robert Catesby in BBC's Gunpowder

Man, Kit Harington is really stretching his acting muscles here, isn't he? Going from a man on mission to stop an evil king, to...another man trying to stop an evil king. Except one is a magical ice zombie and the other is an asshole to Catholics, I suppose. But still. Harington plays Robert Catesby in BBC One's upcoming epic miniseries GUNPOWDER, which sounds like...

Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer to star in Picnic at Hanging Rock

Among many of the deceptive characters that appear courtesy of HBO's GAME OF THRONES, Natalie Dormer 's Margaery Tyrell has always struck me as one of the most interesting. In my estimation, she's certainly one of the most complex characters on the show, or at least she was. However, Dormer's time on the epic dragons, sorcery, and deception saga has come to pass, and...

Bryan Fuller wants to do Hannibal miniseries about Silence of the Lambs

While it didn't kick off the trend, Bryan Fuller's HANNIBAL was one of the best of the "shows made out of movies" genre, alongside other such shows like 12 MONKEYS, BATES MOTEL, MINORITY REPORT, LETHAL WEAPON, and the recent EXORCIST. It was stylish, dark, gruesome, but best of all fun . The show dealt with dark subject matter, but always with a sense of...

Josh Boone's The Stand will be preceded by an 8-part miniseries on Showtime

I'm one of those jerks who have neither read Stephen King 's "The Stand" nor seen the 1994 TV miniseries of the same time, but I am aware that "The Stand" is quite the gigantic book and therefore a tricky thing to condense. The big-screen adaptation of THE STAND has been a long time coming with the project entering and exiting many different hands before...

Baz Luhrmann could direct Stanley Kubrick scripted HBO miniseries Napoleon

Remember the unproduced Napoleon script written by Stanley Kubrick that Steven Spielberg picked up? Not only has the miniseries found a home at HBO, it seems that a certain whimsical director is circling the project. Baz Luhrmann could possibly take the reins on the material. Interesting move. It's still far from any deals though. This was a passion project for...
