Frank Darabont is trying again with a television series in the wake of his departure from The Walking Dead, and he’s brought John Bernthal along with him. His new effort was called L.A. Noir, but will now hit televisions as Lost Angels. As you might have surmised, the reason for the title change is Rockstar’s video game called L.A. Noire; the publisher laid down the law about the title.

Based on John Buntin’s book L.A. Noir: The Struggle For The Soul Of America’s Most Seductive City, the show covers some of the same ground as the recent film Gangster Squad: the battle between LA cops and gangster Mickey Cohen. Info on the title change is below, straight from Darabont, along with the plot of the pilot and info on a role played by Simon PeggRead More »

Like a monster through a city, major shifts are happening in the world of Godzilla. The film, which premiered concept footage at Comic-Con in July and will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters), is already set with a May 16, 2014 release date. Now, two of the film’s major producers – Dan Lin and Roy Lee — have left the project. In addition, Oscar-nominated writer/director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Walking Dead) has been brought on to do a final rewrite. Both of those things are happening just weeks before the film is set to start shooting in March. There are more details after the jump.
