Last of Us Maisie Williams

Naughty Dog, Screen Gems, and Sam Raimi are teaming to craft a big-screen adaption of the video game The Last of Us. In the game a damaged man, Joel, escorts a young woman named Ellie across a United States ravaged by an infection that turns people into zombie-like cannibalistic monsters.

Raimi is producing, and Neil Druckmann, the writer and creative director at Naughty Dog, is writing the script for the film. The idea, according to Raimi and Druckmann, is to protect the original material while focusing the 15-hour game into a two-hour story that really hones in on the relationship between the two main characters.

A director hasn’t yet been chosen (again, Raimi is producing) and it’s too early to announce deals for casting, but the two did drop one name. Druckmann says they’ve met with Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, to play Ellie. Read More »

Hit the jump to get the dirt on Doctor Strange Joaquin Phoenix.

Update: Sites such as THR and Deadline are now saying that Phoenix is beyond the offer stage and into actual talks for the role. Phoenix has yet to accept the role, but things are moving forward. Original story follows.

evil dead tv show

There aren’t a lot of details, but on the Screen Gems panel in Hall H during San Diego Comic-Con 2014, Sam Raimi dropped a nice nugget of info. Though he was here to talk about The Last of Us movie (more on that soon), he also said he’s currently writing an Evil Dead TV show with Bruce Campbell. For what company? Is there a network attached? What would it be about? When would it be set?We don’t know. But it’s something that’s being worked on right now. Below, feel free to wildly speculate about what an Evil Dead TV show might be.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The MAze Runner
Wes Ball‘s big-screen adaptation of The Maze Runner had a secret fan screening on Thursday night at Comic-Con. No press or critics were in attendance, but we can take a look at the early buzz coming from the fan tweets. As you probably know, The Maze Runner is based on a young adult bok about a group of teenagers who are stuck in the Glade, a living space that lies in the middle of a maze. This maze opens up during the daytime and closes at night, and the walls periodically shift into new configurations. The first “glader” emerged into the Glade and maze three years ago, and a new glader has appeared once a month since then. After the jump we have collected a bunch of The Maze Runner fan reactions from twitter.

Hannibal Season 3 details

Bryan Fuller may not be quite at George R.R. Martin‘s level when it comes to killing off beloved characters, but Hannibal is still a show about a serial killer. It should come as no surprise that from time to time, characters get shot in the face, chopped into pieces, or braised in a nice wine sauce.

What is shocking is that sometimes, those characters nevertheless find ways to come back. At the Hannibal Comic-Con panel Thursday, Fuller confirmed the returns of two fan favorite characters believed to be dead. Hit the jump to find out who, and to get some more details on Hannibal Season 3. (Be aware the spoilers follow.)
