It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from NBC's big-budget pirate drama, 'Crossbones,' which cast John Malkovich in a leading role that was originally eyed for 'House' veteran Hugh Laurie. Now, as 'Crossbones' gears up production for a potential midseason debut, 'Twilight' and 'Hannibal' director David Slade has officially boarded the ship to steer as director.
We're excited for former 'Battlestar Galactica' head Ron Moore to get back into the Syfy game with the buzzy new horror series 'Helix,' and today the cable network has given us yet another reason. Fresh off his work on NBC's 'Hannibal,' film and TV director David Slade will helm the pilot episode of Syfy's 'Helix,' but just how soon can we expect to see Ron Moore's latest work?
Are you tired of movies based on young adult novels about dystopian futures? No? Good -- because Disney has just hired director David Slade to tackle 'Matched,' based on the YA novel by Ally Condie, and surprise! It's about a dystopian future society!
'The Amazing Spider-Man' has cleared $150 Million domestically and $350 worldwide, which means that studios can feel safe about rebooting their superhero films. And with 'The Avengers' and Spidey kicking box office butt, Fox is looking to move forward on rebooting 'Fantastic Four' and 'Daredevil.'
Previous to becoming their own studio, the way Marvel Comics negotiated their deals was that you had to keep a project going in order to retain the rights to sequels, etc. Which explains why Columbia Pictures has rebooted 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and why Fox is trying to hold on to The Fantastic Four and Daredevil. So now Fox has got David Slade and a writer attached to a 'Daredevil' reboot.
We knew NBC was bringing the charming, cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter to television, but now we know who will be sitting in the director's chair for the pilot episode: David Slade, the talented filmmaker who made the small, tense 'Hard Candy,' the bloody vampire flick '30 Days of Night' and pocketed a mighty paycheck for 'The Twilight Sage: Eclipse.'
