Amazon Horror Anthology Series

Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are teaming with Craig Macneill and Clay Chapman, the team behind the indie horror film The Boy (no, not the one about the creepy doll, the other one), for a new psychological horror anthology series being developed for Amazon. The series is called Unknown, and “plunges into the corners of the American landscape, probing the intersection of folklore and our bloody history of true crime.” The intersection of folklore and our bloody history of true crime is one of my favorite spots to hang out, so this sounds pretty cool to me.

reminiscence teaser

Back at the end of last year, Reminiscence, the time travel thriller starring Hugh Jackman and helmed by Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy in her feature directorial debut, was removed from the 2021 release calendar entirely. But following WarnerMedia’s game-changing announcement of its day-and-date releases for its entire 2021 slate, Reminiscence appeared in a short teaser of the upcoming HBO Max releases this year. Now Warner Bros. has set a new Reminiscence release date for its same-day theatrical and HBO Max debut, along with a tantalizing new teaser that will have viewers reminiscing about a different movie – one by Christopher Nolan. Watch the (very short) Reminiscence teaser below.

HBO’s sci-fi western series Westworld is in production on its third season, but will the show extend beyond season 3? That question is still unclear, but if it does, creators/showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy will still be there to steer the ship.

Nolan and Joy have just signed a gargantuan nine-figure deal to develop television for Amazon Prime Video, but a new report says they have signed a deal to continue to serve as writers and executive producers on Westworld “for multiple additional seasons.” Learn more about the new Lisa Joy/Jonathan Nolan Amazon deal below.

reminiscence cast

Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson are two of the most magnetic movie stars working today, and their chemistry felt a little wasted in The Greatest Showman. So it’s good they’re reuniting in a sci-fi romantic thriller from the co-creator of HBO’s Westworld, Lisa Joy.

Jackman and Ferguson are set to star in Reminiscence, an ambitious sci-fi thriller that will mark Joy’s feature directorial debut. The two will lead the Reminiscence cast as a couple who fall in love in a near-future world where technology has enabled people to recapture their memories, in what sounds like a reverse Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind — but with a thriller twist.
