It had been a good long while since we heard anything from Showtime's mythical monster mash-up series, 'Penny Dreadful,' particularly since FOX announced intent of its own to feature a team-up series based on Alan Moore's 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.' But finally 'Penny Dreadful' has pulled ahead. Josh Hartnett and Eva Green will lead the new series, with Sam Mendes to direct.

Despite frequently and loudly saying that he would not return to the James Bond franchise, it looks like 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes has been roped in for another one. Well, another two, actually.
A new report claims that Mendes is back on board the James Bond train for 'Bond 24' and likely 'Bond 25,' following some pretty extensive negotiations.

Many of us loved the latest James Bond movie, 'Skyfall,' which reflects in the film's $1 billion worldwide box office, but the film is something its director, Sam Mendes, does not want to repeat. We all know (or rather should know by now) that he doesn't have plans to return for the next 007 movie -- in fact, the very thought of doing so makes him "physically ill."

A few weeks ago we learned that 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes would not be returning for Bond 24,  which was a bit shocking considering the enormous financial and critical success of the latest James Bond adventure. However, Bond franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson aren't letting him go too easy: they say he'll be back...just not yet.

About three weeks ago came news that 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes was close to finalizing a deal to return for 'Bond 24,' the next film in the 007 series. Well in the weeks since, something changed and Mendes has confirmed that we won't be returning for the next James Bond film. Find out why below and let's figure out who could possibly replace him.

With 'Skyfall' firmly enshrined as the biggest James Bond film of all time (not to mention one of the biggest movies of all time, period), it only makes sense for the producers of the venerable series to keep the good times rolling and start talking Bond 24. They locked up screenwriter John Logan almost immediately after 'Skyfall' first dropped, and now it looks like director Sam Mendes is close to returning as well.
Jump after the break to find out just how close.

Yesterday, we ran a rumor that director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan (both of them fresh off the massive success of 'Skyfall') were working on a 'Frankenstein' TV seres for Showtime. Well, it turns out that we were half right. The name of the series is 'Penny Dreadful' and while it will feature Dr. Frankenstein and his infamous creation, they will be part of an ensemble that includes other supernatural literary characters, including Dorian Gray and key figures from Bram Stoker's 'Dracula.' For fans of great comics (and/or bad movies), it should sound very, very familiar...

With 'Skyfall' now the highest grossing Bond film in the history of the fifty year franchise, director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan are on top of the world. But how do you follow up a critically acclaimed action film that managed to gross more than $1 billion at the international box office? How about a TV series inspired Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein.'
