Paramount, like all Hollywood studios, loves a good reboot. This week they’ve got Terminator Genisys coming out, which reimagines the old James Cameron movie in a whole new light. Earlier this year they had a new version of The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg, and last summer they had a big hit with a reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Lately, they’ve begun exploring ways to take their remaking ways to television; they’re working on a Shutter Island series based on the Martin Scorsese film and a American Gigolo show with producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The latest addition to their remake slate: Fatal Attraction, which is also headed to the small screen.

There’s been plenty of debate over what role The Punisher will take in Daredevil Season 2, whether Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle will act as an opposing vigilante, or perhaps Matt Murdock’s new big bad altogether, but might Marvel point the way? The actor has shared a few Punisher comics as part of his research, which might also reveal The Kingpin’s role in Daredevil’s 2016 return.
Should American Horror Story ever grow stale, Syfy has set about developing its own horror anthology cycle with some seriously creepy roots. The network has teamed with Chronicle and American Ultra writer Max Landis to scare up Channel Zero: Candle Cove, basing its inaugural season around a horror tale spun by internet haven Creepypasta.
Sad though we'll be to see Cullen Bohannon finally bring Hell on Wheels to a hard stop (admittedly in 2016, with AMC already lining up its next western), the first look at Season 5 seems the most exciting and exotic yet. Bullets fly, trains collide, and there's even a crazy dude in a mask in our first look at Hell on Wheels fifth' and final season!
HBO had enough star power on its hands in adapting Bryan Cranston’s Tony-winning Lyndon B. Johnson show All The Way with Stephen Spielberg’s help, and now a Falcon has heeded the call.
