Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money are dead. Meanwhile Life on Mars is still alive and will be put behind Lost. So what the fuck?
Pushing Daisies has already wrapped its 13th and final episode shooting which would have been a 2-parter with epi 14 if it was not for that unfortunate…cancelation.
So now that Pushing Daisies is gone, I guess Fuller is going back to Zeroes. Will major changes take place in Volume 4? Wait & See.
I have actually one good news today: Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard have inked a feature treatment deal with Imagine and Fox Searchlight. You know what that means. The Arrested Development movie is one step closer to finally coming our way! Well, probably not for another two years or so but still. A glimmer of hope.
With a +/-3.09% margin of error, I find those results quite scary:
Almost 60% of the polled agreed that “the people who run the TV networks and the major movie studios do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans.“ 48% think there is an “organized campaign by Hollywood and the national media to weaken the influence of religious values in this country.“ 49% agree with the statement that “the U.S. is becoming too tolerant in its acceptance of different ideas and lifestyles.“ 38% of the people who answered the poll agreed that books containing “dangerous ideas” should be banned from libraries. The same number of people disagree that “censoring books is an old-fashioned idea.”
Let’s start with 2 strange pick-ups from the last couple of days.
HBO has ordered a series adaptation (as in real series, not mini) of George R.R. Martin’s 7-book “A Song of Fire & Ice”, titled “Game of Thrones”. Each season would represent a book, so it could go on for about 7 seasons, if it is picked up that is. Did I forget to mention that “Game of Thrones” is in fact a fantasy series? As in, magic and dragons. On HBO. In primetime.
Ridley Scott on the other hand is going to direct a movie adaptation of…wait for it…Monopoly. The script is going to be penned by Corpse Bride/Monster House’s Pamela Pettler and should be reminiscent of Blade Runner with its futuristic feel.
Meanwhile, Fox just ditched MadTV and NBC has canceled My Worst Enemy and Lipstick Jungle. But no real surprise there.
Did you guys also hear? The war in Iraq has ended, says the New York Times.
Oh but wait… It’s a hoax.
And just because I’m a sucker for technology, and “the future is now”: RED just announced today its massive new line of product and accessories, including the awesome $55,000 EPIC 617 Mysterium Monstro camera. Just how awesome is it? 28k awesome. That means it shoots at 25FPS images with a res of 28 000 x 9 334. With the ability to also shoot 3-D. Yeah, you read that correctly.
Sure, it’s only going to arrive in like 2 years, but who cares. It’s revolutionary.
