There’s been talk of a live-action adventure starring Hanna Barbera’s great boy explorer for a good long while—back in 2009 Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson signed on as Jonny and Race Bannon—but nothing’s ever happened. Wrath of the Titans’ screenwriter Dan Mazeau, who is also on the Quest quest, explains why.
As always, big-budget movies like this have a ton of moving parts, and they all have to align in just the right way. Continue reading

After helping make AMC’s The Walking Dead one of the biggest shows ever, producer Gale Anne Hurd is bringing another dark comic property to the small screen—and she’s teaming up with Rosario Dawson to make it happen.
The duo is developing the graphic novel Occult Crimes Taskforce, co-created by Dawson, as a cable series at A&E. The show will be called O.C.T., and it will follow officers in the NYPD’s occult crimes division as they investigate incidences involving black magic and other wicked voodoo. The task force will face off with a demon group hell-bent (pun intended) on taking over Manhattan. Continue reading

Just a few weeks ago, we Trek fans were rejoicing at the news that Norman Spinrad’s long-lost original series script “He Walked Among Us” would find new life on the acclaimed web series Star Trek Phase II. Sadly, we’re now hearing the project may be lost forever thanks to that unshakeable buzzkill: A network cease and desist letter.
Spinrad, a Hugo and Nebula-winning sci-fi writer who also scripted the 1967 Trek episode “The Doomsday Machine,” was paid about $5,000 for the “He Walked Among Us” script, but asked series creator Gene Roddenberry to kill the episode after producer Gene Coon “rewrote it into an unfunny comedy.” Continue reading

We may not have to look too terribly far to find a habitable alien planet out there. It turns out, there could be a few billion just in our own neighborhood. According to a new study, there are likely a lot more rocky – but habitable – planets out there orbiting red stars within our Milky Way galaxy.
The only problem? They can be tough to spot. We’ve managed to find a few, but scientists are now saying there are probably quite a lot more out there that we’re missing. Even better, many of them are solid candidates to house extraterrestrial life. Continue reading

I’m pretty sure by now, I’m one of the last people on the planet to read “The Hunger Games” novel. However, I finally picked up a copy last week, and since then, I haven’t been able to stop reading it. It’s a smartly-written, fast-paced and thought-provoking novel, and the good news for fans is, the film version is just as powerful.
The story takes place in a civilization called Panem, a post-apocalyptic society in North America that’s divided into 13 districts. Years ago, the districts of Panem tried to rebel against the oppressive government but were brutally crushed (the 13th district was even obliterated). As punishment for the rebellion, the government started the “Hunger Games,” a televised gladiator-style competition where teenagers are forced to fight to the death. Continue reading

We haven’t heard much about that Flash movie in recent months, but don’t worry: the Scarlet Speedster’s big screen debut has not been consigned to movie studio limbo yet.
The Flash was one of the major DC characters expected to be rolled out as part of an effort by Warner Bros. Pictures (which owns the comic book giant) to create its own onscreen universe similar to what Marvel has been doing for the last five years.
However, something got in the way of that plan: the color green. As in Green Lantern, and all the green cash money that that movie did not make last summer as hoped. Continue reading
