Conan the Barbarian TV reboot.

Quote:
As reported by Deadline, Amazon has signed up Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik, who helmed 'The Gift', 'Hardhome', 'Battle of the *******s' and 'The Winds of the Winter', which are some of the biggest episodes of the entire show.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Netflix have revealed that Stranger Things season 3 will once again be 8 episodes.

This is the same as Season 1, but one less than Season 2, which had nine episodes.

Its due for release in early 2019.

Its currently still unknown how many episodes Season 4 will have, or its release date (but likely to be mid 2020)

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

I am glad to see that there is so much good scifi in the pipeline:

Quote:
V is coming to the big screen. Syfy reports Desilu Studios is developing a film version of the NBC/ABC TV series.
From Kenneth Johnson, the sci-fi drama first premiered in 1983 and “chronicled an invasion of Earth by vicious reptilian aliens who disguised themselves as friendly humanoids, triggering a human resistance movement.” The miniseries spawned a sequel, V: The Final Battle, and a weekly TV show, V: The Series, which ran from 1984 to 1985. A reboot of the series aired on ABC from 2009 to 2011.
The film version of V will be written and directed by the series’ original creator, Kenneth Johnson.

From Johnson:

“We are delighted to team up with Desilu to bring the timeless — and timely — story of resistance against tyranny into the 21st Century. V will be the first of a cinematic trilogy which will tell the full epic tale in the manner I always envisioned.”

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

A Trilogy - sounds good if it comes off, and is done well.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

yup, I love V. I grew up with the original series and watched it over and over again and would happily sit down and watch it all again now. With new V movies coming out and a Lost in Space series coming out this yea it makes you wonder if they would bring back something like Land of the Giants. I bet that would look great with what they could do effects wise these days.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

The CW is expanding back into Sunday evenings again.

It hasnt shown any of its own programming at weekends since around 2008.
The expansion likely means its very likely it will continue its "Tradition" of renewing the majority of its current shows (such as Black Lightning, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, Supergirl, Supernatural, Riverdale, Dynasty, The 100, iZombie).

It’s also ordered nine pilots so far this year, up from its usual five or six.

Its not looking likely now (a reboot was planned).


NBC has finally renewed Midnight, Texas for season 2.

This is too late now for this year, it will hit screens in 2019 (most likely summer again).

The CW is bringing in the big guns for their latest reboot. Deadline reports The Originals creator Julie Plec will direct the network’s Roswell reboot pilot.

The original series followed a group of teens who live in the small town of Roswell, New Mexico—the site of the famous UFO incident. The cast included Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino, Nick Wechsler, William Sadler, Colin Hanks, and Emilie de Ravin. The show ran on The WB from 1999-2001 and then switched to UPN for the 2001-2002 season.

The CW‘s Roswell reboot comes from Carina Adly MacKenzie and follows the daughter of undocumented immigrants who “discovers a shocking truth about her teenage crush who is now a police officer: He’s an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life.”

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Ian M Banks Culture novels TV series coming to Amazon.

http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix....cle&ID=2333693

Quote:
Amazon Studios today announced it has acquired the global television rights to the Culture’s first novel Consider Phlebas. The famed space opera by Scottish writer Iain M. Banks features Banks’ fictional interstellar utopian society, the Culture. The series will be adapted by Dennis Kelly (Utopia, Matilda) with Plan B Entertainment (World War Z, 12 Years a Slave, The Big Short, Moonlight, Feud) slated to produce and the Estate of Iain Banks attached as Executive Producer.

A kinetic, action-packed adventure on a huge canvas, Consider Phlebas draws upon the extraordinary world and mythology Banks created in the Culture, in which a highly advanced and progressive society ends up at war with the Idirans, a deeply religious, warlike race intent on dominating the entire galaxy.

The story centers on Horza, a rogue agent tasked by the Idirans with the impossible mission of recovering a missing Culture ‘Mind,’ an artificial intelligence many thousands of times smarter than any human—something that could hold the key to wiping out the Culture altogether. What unfolds, with Banks’ trademark irreverent humor, ultimately asks the poignant question of how we can use technology to preserve our humanity, not surrender it.
Out-fricking-standing - can't wait.

I hope it's good. I'm just not sure they'll be able to do it justice.
