We've all seen at least one version of Facebook's dramatic origins, but what of its spiritual offshoot Twitter? The studio behind 'Mad Men' and 'Orange Is the New Black' is plotting to bring 'The Social Network' to TV with a new ongoing series based on New York Times best-seller 'Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal,' but what will set 'Hatching Twitter' apart from Aaron Sorkin's film?

For all the controversy and development lingo that plagued Gavin Hood's sci-fi epic 'Ender's Game,' the Harrison Ford- and Ben Kingsley-starring film hasn't quite broken the box office in the manner Lionsgate had hoped, leading to inevitable questions over the potential for a sequel moving forward. We won't know yet if 'Ender's Game' will live to fight another day at the box office, but with TV being utilized more and more to revive dormant film properties, could an 'Ender's Game' TV series be in our future?
Well, we figured that Kelsey Grammer would need to find something to do after Starz opted not to go through with a third season of political drama 'Boss,' but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. According to new reports, unusually-matched celebrities Grammer and 'Big Momma's House' star Martin Lawrence are looking into the possibility of developing a sitcom together with Lionsgate TV, but what could the series possibly portray? And what might it have to do with FX's 'Anger Management?'
If you've been browsing around for a more modern take on the whole 'Alice in Wonderland' storyline and that '90s TV series just didn't cut it for you, you're in luck. Lionsgate TV, the production company behind Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management' and ABC's new show 'Nashville,' just won the rights to make a series based on the 'Wonderland' graphic novels from Zenescope Entertainment.
It had been rumored for some time, but now it can be confirmed: Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman has been cast as Plutarch Heavensbee in ‘The Hunger Games’ sequel ‘Catching Fire.’
First 'G.I, Joe: Retaliation' is yanked from release. Then '47 Ronin' and 'World War Z' are pushed back. And now it looks like...hold your tears...the 'Dirty Dancing' reboot has been put on ice.
No, that wasn't a typo and we are - like - totally not laughing. 'LOL,' starring Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore, has been completed for a few years now, so what has taken Lionsgate so long to release it? And why are they giving it the ol' quiet shove into 100 theaters, sans marketing, on May 4?
In this week's dose of ridiculous we've got some news from those jokers at Lionsgate and promises of progress on long-gestating film projects. Batman tours America in the worst thing to happen to the caped crusader since Joel Schumacher, and 'The Office' just won't die already.
Lionsgate seems to have gotten a bit full of themselves after tapping into some of that tween gold with 'The Hunger Games.' With the recent departure of director Gary Ross from the franchise, Lionsgate is scrambling to find someone to replace him that can please both the fans and series author Suzanne Collins.
With next week's release of 'The Hunger Games' and all the positive buzz on the web from critics, Lionsgate seems poised to become a studio we can take more seriously... But then they went and did this.
