    Producer Gale Anne Hurd Talks Separating The Comic & TV Versions Of 'The Walking Dead'

    Prolific Producer Says 'Hulk' & 'Terminator' Franchises Moving On Without HerGale Anne Hurd has had an incredibly varied (and just plain incredible) career, starting off as an executive assistant to Roger Corman before becoming one of the biggest genre producers in the business, kind of like a lady Jerry Bruckheimer. With her ex-husband James Cameron she produced "The Terminator," "Aliens," "The Abyss," and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" – big, complicated productions that set the box office on fire. In the years since 'T2' she has dabbled in comedy (the underrated Watergate romp "Dick"), family adventures ("Clockstoppers," which is sort of lik...

    Arcade Fire Video Director Chris Milk & Megan Ellison To Turn Danger Mouse Album 'Rome' Into Movie

    With music videos being the background of filmmakers as disparate as Spike Jonze and Michael Bay, it's always worth keeping an eye on who's coming up in that world, and a few months ago, we picked five who seemed the most likely to break out. One was Chris Milk, an artist who's combined more traditi...

    Joel & Ethan Coen Team With 'Cedar Rapids' Writer Phil Johnston For Fox TV Show 'HarveKarbo'

    No, We Don't Understand What's Going On Either The Coen Brothers have always delighted in evading expectations. Enjoy our dark film noir debut "Blood Simple?" Why not try our live-action Looney Tunes follow-up "Raising Arizona." Impressed by our multi-Oscar-nominated "Fargo?" Here's a stoner detective movie about bowling and German porn stars! We've finally reached mainstream success after the Best Picture-winning "No Country For Old Men" and the star-studded "Burn After Reading?" Let's make a dense, oblique Jewish period piece without a single recognizable face...

    We were, to put it politely, less than enamored of British director Julian Gilbey's first two films, the thuggish, seen-it-all-before gangster pictures "Rise of the Footsoldier" and "Rollin' With The Nines." But the helmer's third film, the Melissa George-starring, mountaineering genre tale "A Lonel...

    'Bourne' Producer Developing Adaptation Of Jeffrey Archer Thriller 'A Matter Of Honor'

    We imagine that Jeffrey Archer is not particularly well known outside the U.K. Which is a shame, because he's a fascinating figure; elected to Parliament aged only 29, before giving it up after five years, he went on to become both a millionaire and a successful writer of potboiler thrillers (perhap...

    Trey Parker & Matt Stone Confirm A 'Book Of Mormon' Movie Is On The Way, But Not Just Yet

    Of all the creative types working today, one would imagine that possibly the least likely to threaten to pick up an EGOT (managing to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony, a feat managed by only ten people in history) are the gleefully puerile "South Park" and "Team America" creators Trey Park...
