A Teacher

Hannah Fidell‘s A Teacher didn’t get quite the acclaim or attention that Fruitvale Station or The Spectacular Now rdid at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, but it got some buzz nonetheless thanks to its scandalous premise, fine performances, and pared-down style. Now, it’s also getting a TV show.

Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, and Michael Costigan are set to executive produce an HBO drama based on Fidell’s film, with Fidell herself on board to write, executive produce, and possibly direct the pilot. Shameless (U.K.) showrunner Daniel Brocklehurst will also write and executive produce. Get more details on the series after the jump.

Game of Thrones Season 4 - Joffrey (header)

Until Game of Thrones returns on April 6, we’ll take what we can get from the HBO fantasy show. So far, that’s been a trailer and some Vine teasers, and now, a big batch of stills. The new images offer closer looks at some of our favorite returning characters as well as some notable new ones.

There are Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) doing her best “bitch, please” face; Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) offering comfort to poor sad Sansa (Sophie Turner); and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) looking clean for the first time in like two seasons, just to name a few of the familiar faces we’re excited to see.

In terms of new people, there are Pedro Pascal and Indira Varma as Oberyn Martell and Indira Varma, who hail from Dorne in the South, and Michael Huisman as the new Daario Naharis, replacing Ed Skrein. (Sorry, book readers, this one doesn’t have a blue beard either.) Check ‘em all out after the jump.

Game of Thrones Season 3

We know, we know. The “teaser for a teaser” trend is getting out of hand. But after the epic, blood-soaked insanity that was Season 3 of Game of Thrones, we can’t help but latch on to whatever we can get of Season 4. And right now, that means we’re poring over these five action-packed Vines.

The brief clips feature fan favorite characters like Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), along with new character Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), in various degrees of peril and/or badassery. The full trailer won’t premiere for another couple of days, but for now you can watch the snippets after the jump.

Noah Aronofsky 2

Briefly: Darren Aronofsky and New Regency have had a good relationship; the director made The Fountain under an old first-look deal with New Regency, and they worked together to produce Noah, which New Regency financed with Paramount. And while there’s been talk of difficulties with Paramount and Noah, it seems like Aronofsky and New Regency are working together well enough to sign a new deal.

Aronofsky and his Protozoa Pictures signed a new three-year first-look deal with New Regency for feature development, at the same time as Protozoa has signed a similar deal with HBO to develop shows for Aronofsky to direct for television.

“It is a thrill to be re-teaming with my old friends at New Regency,” Aronofsky said. “Arnon [Milchan] has been a great supporter since we made The Fountain together. It is a golden age for the small screen and moving into that realm with HBO as partners is a dream come true. I am excited to see Protozoa’s output explode over the next few years.” [Deadline]
