Lena Dunham and company may be having trouble finding lasting romance in HBO’s Girls, but they’ve still got it way easy compared to the tormented lovers of HBO’s Game of Thrones. For one thing, I’m betting love affairs in the former involve way fewer beheadings. After the jump:

  • Mad Men hints a look back to the ’50s
  • Carlton Cuse explores Norman Bates’ formative years
  • Game of Thrones drops a lovey-dovey new promo
  • Girls gets two more trailers and a glowing review
  • Showtime sets return dates for Dexter and Homeland

The most disappointing, albeit it inevitable, part of attending Comic-Con is when you hear about something that happened you would have loved to see but totally missed. For me, that happened at Entertainment Weekly’s Totally Lost: One Year Later panel when show runners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse made a surprise appearance with a “deleted scene” from the finale of the first season.

Here’s the set-up. Lindelof and Cuse take a lot of flack for saying they had everything in the series planned out even though very little of what actually happened – Jacob, the Man in Black, Candidates, light caves, etc – was never hinted at. This scene “proves” that they weren’t lying. The fact that it was shot specifically for Comic-Con, a year after the series finale aired, is insignificant. It would have been awesome to be in the room for this surprise, especially the big reveal at the end, but thanks to the magic of the Internet, we can all check it out now. Read More »

Briefly: Looks as if Hugh Jackman likes the way Real Steel is turning out. News now is that he will do another film with director Shawn Levy after The Wolverine is finished. There isn’t much information on the project right now, aside from the fact that it is planned to be an action adventure film. Oh, and Lost co-creator Carlton Cuse is scripting. That might be kind of a big deal, could get a few people interested. This will be the first big feature project for the writer since Lost ended last year.

We’ll deliver more news on this one as it becomes available. Expect to start hearing more (like a title, for starters) when the press machinery kicks in for Real Steel. That won’t be until September (the film opens October 7) but we might also get some details at Comic Con. Meanwhile, check out the Real Steel trailer if you missed it, and prognosticate about what this team-up might deliver for an encore. So does this mean Mr. Levy won’t direct the film version of The Deadliest Warrior? [Deadline]

When Lost ended earlier this year, everyone knew what show co-creator Damon Lindelof was up to next: Some cowboys, an Alien and more Star Trek. In the grand tradition of the show that made them famous, though, a mystery remained. What would Lindelof’s co-executive producer, Carlton Cuse, choose as his follow up? Today we have an answer: an “event” series for ABC set in Virginia during the Civil War. He’ll co-write the pilot with Oscar-nominated Braveheart screenwriter Randall Wallace, who just directed Secretariat, and the pair will co-executive produce. Wallace will direct the pilot if it gets picked up. That’s all the info out there at the moment but one has to wonder, why all the Civil War news today? Thanks to Variety for the info.

George Lucas vs. JJ Abrams lightsaber photoshopped

Last week during Lost Live: The Final Celebration, ABC network executive Barry Jossen read a letter George Lucas wrote to Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. In the letter, Lucas finally admitted the obvious — he had no idea where the story was going when Star Wars just came out, and that “the trick is to pretend you’ve planned the whole thing out in advance.”
