It says something about James Franco‘s career that his current project The Disaster Artist, a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most notoriously terrible films ever made, is one of the more normal things he’s done. But Franco gonna Franco, and so he’s got a more offbeat project lined up for his near future as well.
Franco is teaming with Lifetime and Sony Pictures Television to remake Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?, the memorably titled Tori Spelling TV movie that premiered on NBC in 1996. Franco is not expected to appear onscreen, but Spelling is. More about the Mother May I Sleep With Danger remake after the jump. Read More »

The Tanners rarely faced a problem they couldn’t resolve in 22 minutes, but the first clip from Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Full House Story reveals it wasn’t all smooth sailing behind the scenes. For one thing, it seems John Stamos (played here by Justin Gaston) wasn’t sold on the Olsen twins. And that Bob Saget (Garrett Brawith) was prone to making awkward R-rated jokes around his TV kids.
Meanwhile, the real Full House cast is welcoming some more new faces to Netflix’s Fuller House spinoff. Uncle Jesse’s twin sons Nicky and Alex (Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit) are confirmed to return, while Eva LaRue joins the family in an entirely new role. Watch the first Unauthorized Full House Story clip and get details on the new Fuller House casting after the jump. Read More »

We never know quite what’s going to happen when Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell team up, but it’s usually safe to assume we’re in for something hilariously bizarre. The pair’s newest collaboration is the Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption.

Following NBC’s Hannibal and Rosemary’s Baby and A&E’s Bates Motel, The Omen will become the latest horror classic to get adapted for the small screen. Titled Damien, the new drama will be a sequel of sorts to the 1976 film, picking up with the titular character as an adult.
