    NBC Developing Miniseries About The Beatles With 'Vikings' Creator Michael Hirst

    They're the most important band in the history of pop music, but The Beatles have surprisingly featured relatively little on screen. Obviously, they featured directly in the great "A Hard Day's Night," "Help" and "Yellow Submarine," but latter-day attempts to capture their stories or songs on screen...

    With the success of shows like “Bates Motel” and the promise of the forthcoming small-screen adaptation of “Fargo,” networks are once again looking to the silver screen for future shows.

    Timor Bekmambetov Out, Ben Stiller Circling Director's Chair For 'The Current War'

    Perhaps the biggest surprise and news story of the day was the arrival of the trailer for Ben Stiller's "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty." The film, which Stiller both stars in and directs, was unveiled as something much more than your everyday remake, promising something that could possibly be the ...

    Scott Frank Out, Christopher McQuarrie Back To Write & Direct Adaptation Of U.K. Miniseries 'Unforgiven'

    This is how it goes sometimes in Hollywood. You work on a project, it leaves your hands and then it somehow circles back and lands on your desk. Way back in 2010, Christopher McQuarrie was hired on to adapt the U.K. miniseries "Unforgiven" into a feature film, with Angelina Jolie being eyed to lead....

    Liam Neeson To Star In One-Time Harrison Ford Project 'A Walk Among The Tombstones'

    It seems barely a week goes by without it being announced that Liam Neeson is attached to play some kind of badass. Ever since "Taken" renewed his stardom, he's been a busy bee, punching people (and wolves) in everything from "The A-Team" and "Clash Of The Titans" to "The Grey" and the upcoming "Non...

    'Out Of Sight' and 'Minority Report' Scribe Scott Frank To Write 'Houdini' For Francis Lawrence

    Considering that, in real life, the profession seems to fall somewhere between "repellent" and "unbelievably douchey" (see: David Blaine, Criss Angel), it's somewhat surprising how many magic-based movies we have going around these days. The 2006 double bill of "The Prestige" and "The Illusionist" was the peak of the genre, but recent years have also brought the animated "Illusionist," Guy Pearce in the little-seen "Death Defying Acts" and, later in the summer, David Tennant as a vampire-fighting trickster in "Fright Night," while an adaptation of the seminal novel "Carter Beats The Devil" recently got a new lease on life. Even Pixar got in o...
