Leonardo Da Vinci's quest to get to America really gets cooking tonight as he has to build a submarine to board a vessel. The scale this show attempts is always impressive, even if the visual effects aren't always up to snuff.
The last we heard about 'Y: The Last Man' was that the rights were going to revert to co-creators Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra if shooting didn't commence shortly. And today we've learned that Dan Trachtenberg, the last director associated with the project, has signed on to direct 'Valencia' for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot and Paramount Insurge. Which means that it's likely that New Line's take on 'Y' is dead.
It's been almost a year and a half since 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was announced and over fifteen months since J.J. Abrams became the film's director, but with a December 18, 2015 release date, the film has to begin production shortly if they hope to come out next year. The latest word is the film will commence principle photography in Morocco on May 14.
The first 'Sex Tape' trailer (the red-band edition, by the way) shows a film that reunites 'Bad Teacher' stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel with director Jake Kasdan for another round of debauchery. This time the couple get themselves in trouble when they try to spice up their love life with some filmed sexual hijinks that they don't know how to delete.
With tonight's 'Da Vinci's Demons' the series is segueing into the heart of its season 2 intrigue as Da Vinci is trying to catch up to Riario in their quest to get to the new world and find the book of leaves. But he's got to get out of Florence first, and before he can do that he has to save the city. So, yeah, there's a lot on his plate.
