UPDATE: The original version of this story inaccurately mentioned a second season renewal for Amazing Stories, but this was a misconception by our reporter at the TCAs. Our corrected story follows below.
Apple TV+ presented panels on the last day of the Television Critics Association winter press tour. The streamer finally announced premiere date for the long-awaited reboot of Steven Spielberg’s anthology series Amazing Stories. The revival of the series has been one of the cornerstones of Apple’s originals slate, but this is the first word we’ve gotten on when the show will arrive, and it also came with an Amazing Stories first look photo.

The Game of Thrones Season 5 finale left open a lot of questions about which actors might or might not be back for Season 6. Who’s really dead? Who’s still alive? Who’s getting resurrected as a White Walker or a mysterious Kingsguard knight?
Behind the camera, however, it seems things are a bit more settled. HBO has revealed the full list of directors for the next season of its fantasy juggernaut, teasing another action-packed season ahead. Find out who the Game of Thrones Season 6 directors are after the jump. Read More »

Like her House Bunny co-star Emma Stone, Anna Faris is one of those actresses who has enough charm and verve to brighten up even the most lackluster material. And it’s mostly for that reason that I’m actually looking forward to What’s Your Number? The upcoming romcom features Faris as a woman who, upon realizing that she has slept with 20 men, revisits her former flames to see if “the one” might’ve been among them. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Liv Tyler and Patrick Wilson will feature in The Ledge, a “suspense thriller” (as opposed to non-suspenseful thrillers) that will mark the feature debut of writer/director Matthew Chapman.
Terrence Howard and Charlie Hunnam co-star in the film about “a man (Hunnam) standing on a high-rise ledge who insists he must jump by noon as the policeman below (Howard) tries to manage the situation.” OK, sounds like Hunnam and Howard are leading the cast, so who will Wilson and Tyler play? Good question. Producer Michael Mailer has a great quote about the production, at least: “As more and more films succumb to the visual wizardry of 3D, ‘The Ledge’ explores the fourth dimension: the interior life of tortured souls hovering over the precipice of emotional nullity. This film is the reason why I became an independent filmmaker and why I continue to suffer in the trenches of independent filmmaking.” Take that, 3D! [THR]
After the break, news on the brother of Thor and a new comedy for Chris Evans and Anna Faris. Read More »
One of the scripts on the 2008 Black List was Twenty Times a Lady, adapted by Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan from the novel by Karyn Bosnak. The basic premise is something of a tall tale, but it sounds like enough fun: a young woman wakes up one morning in the bed of her nasty boss and finds that she’s just hit her own personal ‘limit’ – he makes the 20th man she’s slept with. She refuses to break this limit so, in order to find ‘the one’ she finds herself trapped with only former contestants, as it were, being able to play for the prize.
The script is now set to be filmed, retitled What’s Your Number?, and set to team actress Anna Faris and director Mark Mylod. Very nice. I couldn’t be happier about this pairing because I’ve been counting both as real favorites for years now.
