Ryan Coogler (‘Creed’, ‘Fruitvale Station’) directing and producing TV show, ‘Minors’
I’m down for anything Ryan Coogler is attached to these days. And Coogler seems to have a good amount on his plate. The director ain’t just doing Marvel’s Black Panther, nuh-uh. He’s also joining Destin Daniel Cretto in directing the TV series Minors.
David Fincher and Charlize Theron’s project ‘Mind Hunter’ picked up by Netflix
Apparently David Fincher has a long gestating project with Charlize Theron! Who knew! Doubly apparently, this project has toiled away in development hell for a good long while, but it is finally going to gain traction.
Que? Vince Vaughn in talks for ‘True Detective’ Season 2
Time is an endless series of horrible buddy comedies? Apparently Vince Vaughn is in talks to join True Detective‘s second season. Jokes aside — whatever. I have faith that the creatives can get the best performance out of him, and I get the impression Vaughn needs the win right now. Thoughts?
Tuesday Morning Commute: Reality is a Glitch
Hey friends. Tuesday Morning Commute! in the house. The column where we share the various nonsense that is getting us through the grind of a given week. Speaking of grinds — sorry for the lack of updates. And the tardiness of this column. Last week of the semester is a wonderful sprint through existence. Pubes on fire. Covered in anxiety-vomit. Praying for a better world. The good news is that starting next week you’re going to be way stuck with me for four months.
This is what I’m digging.
‘HOMELAND’ SEASON 3 TEASER TRAILER: Listen closely, or something.
Fuck me for a) enjoying this teaser despite it offering b) literally no visuals. I can’t help it. I’m ready to run around making weepy faces with Claire Danes and thwarting that son of a bitch Brody.
Hit the jump to check it out.
Spielberg developing STANLEY KUBRICK’S NAPOLEON as a TV miniseries. Uh. Okay.
Apparently Stanley Kubrick’s dream project was one centered around Napoleon. Displaying my ignorance, I will cop to having had no goddamn idea about this. Well, Uncle Steve knew about this project. And armed with this knowledge, the Gracious Alien (c’mon, we all know he is an alien) has taken about developing the project.
‘BREAKING BAD’ creator says ending will be “polarizing” and ‘CASABLANCA-ESQUE’
I’m not going to cry during the ending of Breaking Bad. I’m not. I promise. I’m not. I don’t cry just thinking about Lion King. Oh god. No. No I won’t cry.
Chevy Chase leaves ‘COMMUNITY’, couldn’t have it before Harmon?
Chevy Chase, everyone’s favorite douchebag, has left Community. A bit of sour grapes upside my head, since I imagine he had something to do with Dan Harmon getting the boot. As my Nana used to say as she was throwing her diaper out the window, “good riddance to bad rubbish!”
‘S.H.I.E.L.D’ TV series begins filming in January. Whedon on TV! Squeal, fans.
Joss Whedon on television, folks. Sort of. Serving as overseer of the Marvel Universe, Whedon will be participating in the filming of the S.H.I.E.L.D. television show to some extent. Maybe he’ll dip his balls in it! I don’t know what that means. Just dropping a State reference.
GUILLERMO DEL TORO working on ‘TWIN PEAKS’-esque show for HBO? Yes plz.
Guillermo Del Toro is bringing his considerable talents to premium channel television, boyos! Motherfucker is developing a Twin Peaks styled jam for the powers that be at HBO. This can only be a good thing. Unless it sucks. Then it is a bad thing.
