Ian McShane is on quite a roll these days. From his appearance on the last season of Game of Thrones, to his minor but o less enigmatic character in the John Wick movies, to the ever-possible Deadwood revival, to playing a literal deity in Starz’s American Gods, McShane has been getting all the good stuff lately. And now we can add to that list Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot.
How about some good news? While the fact that the next Hellboy movie we’re gonna see won’t involve either Guillermo del Toro or Ron Perlman, new director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) is on the right track to keep fans of the comics happy. He recently explained that his Hellboy will go hard for the R rating, and will shy away from too many special effects.
We’ll say this for the Robinson family, they sure take their sweet time getting anywhere. After initial 2014 development, as well landing on Netflix late last year, a new Lost in Space is finally confirmed for a series order, under the watchful eye of Dracula Untold and Hannibal vets.
Netflix and danger, Will Robinson! It's been some time since we've heard from the proposed Lost in Space TV reboot, but with Netflix having missed its chance for a new Star Trek, the family Robinson will have to do. The streaming site has apparently won rights to the iconic franchise reboot, as written by the Dracula Untold team.
Remember the explosive "Blackwater" episode of 'Game of Thrones' season 2, where the quick-witted Tyrion used dragon fire to engulf nearly all of the enemy's fleet in a mushroom cloud of green flame? Or how about the second-to-last episode of last season, "Watchers on the Wall," which had giants, war mammoths a crazy single-shot scene? Director Neil Marshall is the man behind those iconic installments, but could he be returning to the big screen next to make that Black Widow movie everyone keeps talking about?
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' season 4 production courted a bit more controversy than usual, specifically with regard to director Alex Graves' thoughts on the multiple rape controversies, and it seems we're in for a shakeup in season 5. Not only will Graves sit out the coming season, but showrunners and occasional directors Dan Benioff and David Weiss will also step back, along with action go-to Neil Marshall and former 'Breaking Bad' director Michelle MacLaren.
We were excited to learn that the TV superheroes trend turned toward adapting DC's 'Hellblazer' for a 'Constantine' TV series on NBC, even more so when the network officially committed to a pilot installment. Now, the network tapped a familiar 'Game of Thrones' director to helm the comic book adaptation, while a few new casting details emerged, as well.
