Taylor Swift Is… Joni Mitchell? I Don’t See It

Katie Jacobs was one of the chief creative forces behind House, serving as executive producer and cutting her directorial teeth on a nice handful of episodes, and the Nurse Jeffrey online spin-off.

David Cronenberg Directing And Sam Raimi Producing New TV Project, Knifeman

Knifeman is to be David Cronenberg‘s first foray into directing TV since he delivered an episode of the Nightmare on Elm Street series.  From the details on hand, it sounds like a pretty good match – there’s certainly going to be a lot of interesting body parts about, and a lead character with some unorthodox […]

VIDEO: The Fantastical Football Toon That’s Next From Juan Jose Campanella

His last picture, The Secret in their Eyes won him the Oscar for 2009’s Best Film in a Foreign Language, so I can imagine that Juan Jose Campanella was feeling unusual liberty in choosing his next project. This might explain why he’s decided to make a 3D family cartoon about figures from a foosball table coming […]

It’s Dr. House Vs. Black Jack When US TV Meets Anime
