If that plan is to work, he’s going to need “a cast that’s going to blow people’s minds,” or so he recently said on a podcast. He may have already started making that statement true as Matthew McConaughy is reportedly in talked to play Randall Flagg, the main villain of the story.

Rumor: Christoph Waltz Is Blofeld in ‘Bond 24′

Christoph Waltz Blofeld

When Christoph Waltz was said to be set for a role in Bond 24, one character name likely leapt to mind for long-time James Bond fans: Ernst Stavro Blofeld. The character was vaguely introduced in From Russia With Love (1963) but we didn’t see his face until Donald Pleasence played him in You Only Live Twice in 1967. Blofeld has not appeared in an official Bond film since 1981 due to a rights dispute. But that conflict, with the estate of the late producer Kevin McClory, was resolved months ago, putting Blofeld and his organization SPECTRE back into the realm of possibility for a Bond film.  Read More »

Global Frequency TV series

The Warren Ellis-penned comic book series Global Frequency is getting its third shot at television. A decade ago, The WB tried to set a Global Frequency TV series in motion, shooting a pilot based on the comic about an organization that attempts to protect the world from the influence of covert government actions. But the show didn’t get picked up, and the pilot, which starred Michelle Forbes and Josh Hopkins, disappeared into the aether, destined to be shared illegally for years to come. The CW tried again with a new pilot script a few years later, but that one didn’t even shoot.

Now, Fox has ordered a pilot for a new Global Frequency TV series, with Jerry Bruckheimer exec producing and Farscape and Defiance creator Rockne S. O’Bannon writing. Read More »

Evil Patrick Stewart

Jeremy Saulnier, the cinematographer-turned-director, got our attention in a big way with Blue Ruin. (That thriller is on our list of 50 great films you should see in 2014.) Now he’s making his second feature as a director. The movie, Green Room, features Patrick Stewart as a white supremacist scumbag who leads a gang that ends up in conflict with a punk band that witnesses one of the gang’s violent acts.

(Seriously, this movie sounds like a deep-sleep dream hatched after a night pounding boilermakers and reading a vintage issue of Maximum RocknRoll. I can’t wait.)

The first image of skinhead Patrick Stewart and his Green Room gang is out now; see it below. Read More »
