Less than two weeks after it was reported a number of networks and streaming services were looking to bet their programming schedule on the talents of one Tom Ripley, it appears Showtime is in final negotiations with Oscar-winning screenwriter Steve Zaillian (The Night Of) for a straight-to-series order that would have Zaillian writing and directing […]
Appears a number of networks and streaming services are looking to bet on the talnets of one Tom Ripley, with Deadline Hollywood reporting that Oscar-winning screenwriter Steve Zaillian is looking to write and direct a series centered on the sociopathic anti-hero from Patricia Highsmith‘s crime novel series. The project is looking for a direct-to-series order, […]
The epic saga of legendary conqueror Hernan Cortes has found a home at Amazon Studios, with Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men) set to lead the four-hour miniseries Cortes. Developed by three-time Oscar winner Steven Spielberg (Ready Player One) through Amblin Television, the project is created for series television by Oscar-winning Schindler’s List writer Steven […]
It seems premiere episodes are getting time to breath via streaming options. Cinemax made Outcast‘s first episode available on a variety of streaming platforms two weeks ahead of its debut and HBO has announced it will offer its upcoming limited series The Night Of on its HBO Go and HBO Now streaming apps.

We don't know if this will be Spielberg's next film since it's all just coming together.
Providing that anybody is going at all.
Sony recently suggested that they would push ahead and get going on sequels to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo despite the slow-ish box-office of this first installment. We now have a slightly better idea of what their specific game plan is.
The chief US press conference for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was held yesterday, and it allowed the ever future-focused blogosphere to get a hold of some sequel-centric bits and pieces. Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara are both signed on to return should Sony greenlight adaptations of the remaining two Millennium novels, but director […]
At almost three and three quarter minutes, the latest trailer for David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is quite the sit down meal. And here’s something to chew on: the accents. They’re nothing if not varied. Is there a system here? Or has each accent been settled on independently? The “babel fish” convention […]
The official site for David Fincher‘s new adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo has launched, and in doing so provided our first images of many of the film’s characters. You’ll also be able to listen to some music while you look at them and read their bios. I presume it’s a sample from […]
Moneyball lost director Steven Soderbergh, and his screenplay, three days before shooting was due to start. Bennet Miller, Oscar-nominated for Capote, stepped in and shot the film from a draft by Steve Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin. I don’t think that looks too good. I’m thinking the film must be better than this flat and pedestrian […]
Already filmed as a three-part TV series, masquerading as three TV movies,* David Peace‘s Red Riding novels are now set for a Hollywood adaptation, written by Jamie Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt is a writer on the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man, and the chap who wrote the script for Zodiac. Like that film, Red Riding tells a based-on-facts crime story, […]
From the cover of W Magazine comes this image of Rooney Mara doing her best Girl With a Dragon Tattoo. Though the image is credited to Jean-Baptiste Mondino, the accompanying article seems to suggest Fincher was rather hands-on: “I think we need more blood,” Fincher said as he stared at Mara’s outstretched hands. Must be […]
Here’s a look at Rooney Mara at least partly transformed into Lisbeth Salander, practicing some motorbike activity (it’d probably be pushing it to call this action) for the imminent production of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Part way through, the helmet comes off and we get a good look at the all-important hair do. […]
David Fincher has chosen Stellan Skarsgard to play Martin Vanger in his English-language Dragon Tattoo movie. Skarsgard has told Variety that he wants to accept, and negotiations are underway: I have met Fincher, I want to work with him, he wants to work me. I have had a concrete offer and now we are in negotiations. […]
