    Clement Virgo's 'Book Of Negroes' Adaptation Will Be Mini-Series, Not Film; Shoots This Fall

    An update on a project we've been following since 2011, when we first learned about it. As a matter of fact, November 2011 was the last time it was mentioned on S&A - so it's certainly been a little while with no updates.

    While J.J. Abrams seems to have no problem multitasking between two mega sci-fi franchises, not to mention his numerous producer gigs on projects for both television and the big screen, Lucasfilm honcho Kathleen Kennedy is keeping her eye firmly on Luke Skywalker and co.

    Today's Your Last Day To Watch 250+ Criterion Movies Not In The Criterion Collection Yet... For Free

    Watch: Ben Affleck's Directorial Debut 'I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Ηung Ηer On A Μeathook & Νow I Have A Three-Picture Deal With Disney' [Short Film]
