The Wachowskis link eight lives in an usual way in their new Netflix series Sense8, and the debut Sense8 trailer shows some of the repercussions and benefits of being deeply linked to several other people at once. This is a break for the filmmakers, who have consistently worked in big-budget arenas ever since The Matrix became a massive hit in 1999. Now they’ve scaled back, and the results look interesting. Check out the trailer here. Read More »

Sens8, the upcoming Netflix sci-fi drama series from Andy and Lana Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski, has a cast, and we can also tell you a bit about the plot. The show, which will run 10 episodes, was originally described only as “a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted.” Now we know that Naveen Andrews (Lost), Daryl Hannah, and Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe) will feature in the large ensemble cast. In addition to that trio, the show features almost another dozen primary names in it’s diverse cast. Read More »

There’s been a lot of jumping the gun lately when it comes to casting announcements, and, surprisingly, most of it has been from directors and producers rather than press. So here’s an attempt to quickly set the story straight on several diverse projects: David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Snuff, and Beat the Reaper. Read More »

Good lord, does Snuff sound horrifying. Fabien Martorell is co-writing (with Karina Wilson) and directing an adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk‘s novel about a faded porn star who sets up a giant gang bang in order to break the record for sexual partners in one film, and three of the men that are possible partners. Now the film has a cast: Thora Birch, Daryl Hannah, and, as one of the guys in line to, uh, appear in the film, we’ve got Tom Sizemore. Yeah, you read that right. Read More »

There’s been even more gossip about a projected third Kill Bill film from Quentin Tarantino than about his long-delayed Whole Bloody Affair recut of the first two parts. The latest loose-lipped culprit to go sowing wild rumours is Daryl Hannah.
Hannah was speaking to UK TV channel Film 24 about her role in Raoul Ruiz’ A Closed Book when they got her on the topic of Tarantino’s Bride movies. In the first two films she played Elle Driver, the eye-patched Deadly Viper Assassin that we last saw losing her one good peeper. It was safe to assume she’d been offed, though apparently that’s not Daryl’s take. She told the channel:
He always meant it as a trilogy… Think about it. There’s always been a tradition of blind Samurais and you never actually saw her expire in the other film.
Does this mean we’re any closer to a Kill Bill threeque or spin-offl? Probably not, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find out her comments on the blind samurai role were actually founded in something Tarantino has told her.
