When a TV series is canceled, that’s usually the end. It’s only on rare occasions (Arrested Development, The Comeback, etc.) that it gets a second chance as a series and it’s even more rare that a canceled show gets turned into a movie (Firefly being the big, obvious example). Now, the Starz show Magic City is getting that elusive chance.
Series creator Mitch Glazer has written and script and will direct a big screen version of the 1960s Miami based mob series. All the regulars will return - Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Danny Huston, Kelly Lynch etc. – and they’ll be joined by Bruce Willis and Bill Murray. This is pretty awesome news.

Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, The Cabin in the Woods is a film that lives and dies on not only the audience’s knowledge of horror films, but each character’s knowledge as well.
A new video has been posted online that breaks that statement down. It attempts, and admittedly comes close, to calling out every single reference in The Cabin in the Woods. Check out The Cabin in the Woods references video below. Read More »
