Sources say Apple and HBO — where Abrams serves as an Ep on Westworld — are both in the running for the untitled drama, with producers Warner Bros. Television also open to additional bidders as the project is still being shopped. Warners, Apple and HBO all declined comment.

‘The Walking Dead’ Star Chandler Riggs Insists ‘Carl Wasn’t Being Forgotten’
Of all the deaths we’ve been through on “The Walking Dead,” the death of Carl Grimes just might hit the hardest — especially because of the cliffhanger way the audience found out about his fate. Actor Chandler Riggs, who plays the one-eyed son of the show’s main character, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), is happy with the legacy his character is leaving behind, though. “It’s really cool knowing that my character still has a legacy that was left behind,” Riggs said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Carl wasn’t being forgotten. He might be gone, but he’s leaving behind something that’s...

A Stunning Visual Compilation of the Work of Denis Villeneuve

The compilation of Denis Villeneuve’s works is nothing short of stunning, though it’s darkness and foreboding promise little more than chaos in the slow, measured beats that continually push forth even when it seems that something must eventually give way to the light and to a more orderly approach. There’s a great deal of cynicism in the works of this director, and something that is elusive but still capable of being noticed since it is in your face and does not try to hide. The shadows in which the main points reside however and the darkness from which they come

The Real Life Maui from Moana is Spotted at Costco

It might seem like profiling or at the very least an offensive stereotype but at least the guy that looks like the real life Maui from Moana had a good sense of humor about it. When a mother and her two daughter spotted a Polynesian man that bore an insanely strong resemblance to the animated character from Moana it was perhaps one of the best days of the girls’ lives, especially when he uttered Maui’s well-known cry of “Chee-hoo!”. I get the feeling this guy gets this a lot since he does look like the character and does have the

Eminem Once Spent 10 Days in a Coma Due to Bullying

You wouldn’t think it looking at and listening to him, but rapper Eminem once spent 10 days in a coma due to an act of bullying. Marshall didn’t have an easy life growing up. First his father split and then he and his mother moved around a lot, to better themselves as she would claim, but also to the detriment of Marshall since so many moves in so little of a time can have a seriously detrimental effect on a child’s upbringing. There’s a very real reason why Marshall felt that the world couldn’t be trusted, but eventually he came

The Five Funniest Movie Scenes Starring Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum is known more for his action sequences than his comedic performance but he does both fairly well. It was kind of hard to find a lot of his funny moments but there are just enough of them to include in a list that might be worthy of being called his funniest movie scenes. He’s done a fair amount in his career thus far and is only getting better with age it seems. There are a few movies he’s been in that probably shouldn’t be granted another installment but were at the very least entertaining when they came out.

If only the Pearson family had watched a little more Sesame Street!

Children of the ’80s who spent enough time with the PBS broadcast will remember an animated short that emphasized repetition in order to jog memory.

Even worse, we never saw Cecile stage any kind of defense — probably because no one thinks we want a superhero court trial longer than an episode,

Rebecca Eaton Explains How To Get BBC To Tackle Quintessentially American ‘Little Women’ – TCA

Masterpiece's Little Women marks a breakthrough for PBS: It’s produced by BBC, which, producer Rebecca Eaton noted, "does not do American drama.” “It's hard to get America novels done with BBC because they are BBC – they have a mandate,” she said. Additionally, it can be expensive. “If you shoot in this country, it’s twice as expensive.” Set in Concord, Ma, Little Women was filmed in Ireland.

Adam Savage’s one day builds have now incorporated the Blade Runner 2049 binoculars used by Deckard from the movie. Leave it to Adam to want to take on a project like this, as he’s a big fan and for some reason has focused on this one little thing from the movie that many other people might have dismissed out of hand. The movie itself wasn’t too bad but after watching it I can see now why it might have failed to impress that many people.
