Warner Bros. has about ten DC Extended Universe movies planned for the next five years, and it looks like they’re crowding in one more. Rumor has it a Booster Gold / Blue Beetle team-up is in the works, with Greg Berlanti directing and Zak Penn writing. In contrast to the dark and gritty vibe of the other DC projects, this one is envisioned as a buddy comedy. More details on the Booster Gold movie after the jump. Read More »

There are more Stephen King film and TV adaptations than most people could count — only the most die-hard fan or serious film and TV trainspotter would be likely to remember them all. But there is a small subset of King’s fiction that has remained largely untapped: fantasy.
The author doesn’t have a lot of books that fit into the fantasy column. The Dark Tower series is primary among them, and then there is the Peter Straub collaboration The Talisman, in which a young boy makes a cross-country journey by flipping back and forth between our world and a parallel fantasy one.
Those are big books, and have resisted adaptation so far. (The Dark Tower might make it to screens soon.) One of King’s other fantasy efforts is more slight, and perhaps more suited for adaptation: The Eyes of the Dragon, a fairy tale he originally created for his daughter, and eventually published in 1987. If Syfy has its way, the book could end up on screens soon. Read More »
