There’s little doubt Dear Zachary is one of the most heartbreaking films every made. The 2008 documentary by Kurt Kuenne started innocently enough as the director tried to make a movie about his deceased friend for his yet-to-be-born son. But as the story unfolded, reality turned into a nightmare for the child, his family and, to a lesser extent, anyone who watched it. Dear Zachary was so powerful and upsetting, it ended up having an effect on political issues in Canada. It’s currently available to stream on Netflix and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Just don’t forget the tissues.
Well in yet another weird twist of fate for the film, the director has now sold the rights to Universal Cable Productions to develop it as a miniseries. Read more about the Dear Zachary TV show below. Read More »

Last month, word got around that MTV’s Scream TV series would not involve the iconic Ghostface mask. Instead, we’ve now learned, it’ll debut a more “organic” new mask. Meaning it’ll possibly be made of flesh. Ew. More details on the Scream TV series mask after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Teen Wolf has guaranteed company in the film-to-TV crowd on MTV. The cable company has given a series order to Scream, the show based on Wes Craven’s defining horror series. We’ve heard, however, that the show at this point won’t feature Ghostface, the recognizable masked killer who made his on-screen debut in the original 1996 film. (The Ghostface mask was actually an existing creation, owned by the company FunWorld.) But that doesn’t mean there won’t be another killer on the loose. After all, there’s no Scream without a killer.

A few weeks ago, we got word that the 1988 Tom Hanks classic Big was being adapted for the small screen by Fox.

If someone options Splash, we can officially call “TV shows based on ’80s comedies starring Tom Hanks” a new hyper-specific trend.
