Fans of the Locke and Key comic were pretty disappointed when word came out that Fox was planning on passing on the pilot for the show. Well good news for people hoping to see it get picked up as Deadline reports that the series based on the Joe Hill penned graphic novel could end up at MTV. The pilot written by Josh Friedman and directed by Mark Romanek was produced by 20th Century Fox, who ultimately decided to pass on the project due to the cost of producing the series. Subsequent screenings of the pilot at San Diego Comic-Con were so well received that a DVD of the project eventually ended up in the hands of MTV programming chief David Janollari, who liked it enough to warrant meetings. So keep those fingers crossed that it may see the light of day soon. Until then enjoy the trailer that has every so excited for this series.
Interesting interview from mtv.com regarding the future plans for Bill and Ted 3. Sound interesting in a nostalgic kind of way. It’s wierd to think of Keanu in a non serious role as he has become an A list star these days. Maybe this is the role he needs to become a bit more accesible in his performances. That and to never do another Matrix movie. Ever.
Apparently it wasn’t enough to have 3 twilight movies, now we have what look to be a Twilight spinoff in the new Teen Wolf remake from MTV. The original Teen Wolf was full of Camp and fun, a sideways comedic look at what was before scary movie fodder. Apparently they have decided to go in a different direction. Lots of pretentious posing from lacrosse playing douchebags here. Werewolf abs are hot these days. Just don’t expect me to watch…
Instead of Snooki or The Situation, it’s Pauly D who has landed the first official Jersey Shore spinoff, with MTV picking up a reality show based on the “D.J.” A pilot episode was shot this past September. Presumably, it will follow Pauly D as he brings the GTL lifestyle to dance floors across America.
“I do. I just think about it sometimes,” the actor told MTV News when asked if all the attention that the new Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynold is getting ever reminds him about what could’ve been.
“Yeah, some people may know that for a minute there, long ago, there was talk of a more comedic version of Green Lantern, but yeah, it wasn’t meant to be.”
Asked whether he looks at Ryan Reynolds tossing around one-liners in the recently released trailer and wonders about all the outrage that surrounded his version of Hal Jordan, Black wasn’t having it…
