Oscar winner and “Bird Box” star Sandra Bullock is set to reunite with Netflix on an adaptation of Millarworld comic book adaptation “Reborn”.

Per Deadline, “Lego Movie” director Chris McKay would direct the film, based on a series of sci-fi/fantasy comics about an eighty year-old woman, Bonnie Black, who dies in a Manhattan hospital only to find herself reborn in the prime of life in the afterlife world of Adystria, a magical land of monsters and dragons where good and evil are waging an eternal war. There, she finds old friends and loved ones waiting, except the husband who died before her. Armed with a sword and partnered with her late father, she sets off through the battle-torn landscape on a quest to find out where he is.

Bullock, who would also produce, would assumingly play Black.

Roy Lee and Miri Yoon of Vertigo Entertainment will produce alongside the actress, who last appeared on the big screen in 2018’s “Ocean’s Eight” and more recently in Netlix’s “Bird Box”.

A bunch more “Star Wars” TV series’ are said to be in the works

Or maybe a late-night talk show hosted by Lumpy the Wookie? that could work..

Disney’s new streaming service already has a couple of new “Star Wars” shows on its to-do list (“The Mandalorian”, which Jon Favreau is involved in, just wrapped it’s first season) but fearing that won’t be enough, they’ve decided to give every character in Steve Sansweet’s “Star Wars Encyclopedia” their own 60-minute series.

Or so it seems.

Today, reports that not only will Han Solo will get his own series (it’ll pick up after the events of the lackluster performing “Solo” movie from last year) but both Finn and Poe, from the recent trilogy, are too. And only because there’s 24 hours in a day, and one of those hours isn’t filled with either a “Star Wars” or Marvel series at this stage, there’s talk of a Lando series too.

Wait…news just in. Qi’Ra, the broad in “Solo”, played by “Game of Thrones”‘ Emilia Clarke, she may be getting her own show too.

So, just to recap : we have Solo, Finn, Poe, Lando and Qi’Ra Princess of Power all potentially getting their own boob tube offerings at Disney+.

When will we break to eat!?

TV : Psych sequel, Paddington, Chucky

Some tidbits from the world of television

Published

The cast of “Psych” will reunite for a second movie to air on the USA Network late 2019.

James Roday, Dule Hill, Maggie Lawson and the rest of the long-running series’ cast will return for the tentatively titled ”Psych: The Movie 2”. The sequel will have the characters returning to Santa Barbara to help Lassiter (Omundson), the city’s police chief, after he is shot and left for dead. In a Psych-style nod to Hitchcock, Lassiter starts seeing impossible things happening around the clinic where he’s recovering. Shawn and Gus find themselves unwelcome in their old stomping grounds and try to untangle the case without the help of police, their loved ones or the quality sourdough bakeries they’re used to in the Bay Area. What they uncover could change the course of their relationships forever. [More…]

The upcoming “Chucky” TV series will embody the tone of the first two films in the series. Executive producer Nick Antosca says “It’s going to go back to a sort of classic scare.” He adds, “It’s consistent with that mythology, but it’s a whole new story. So you could come into it without knowing anything about the previous stuff and get into it. But it is consistent with all the mythology that has come before, so it is in canon.” Brad Dourif will reprise the title role but at this stage he’s the only returning cast member from the films to get a lead spot in the series. [More…]

STUDIOCANAL, Nickelodeon and award-winning producer David Heyman today announced a global deal for a brand-new “Paddington” television series for preschoolers. Actor Ben Whishaw will reprise his role as the beloved voice of the title character in the new CG-animated series, which follows the adventures of a younger Paddington. “Paddington” will air on Nickelodeon’s networks worldwide in 2020, while local broadcast partners will be secured in France, Canada, China and Japan.
Fully animated in 3D, the new “Paddington” series sees a younger Paddington writing to Aunt Lucy from Windsor Gardens. Each episode will open and close with Paddington’s letters as he tells Aunt Lucy what he has learned about life through the day’s new exciting adventure. The series will invite a new generation of fans into Paddington’s world full of heart, kindness, slapstick humour, fun and generosity.

HD Entertainment, who had the scoop on a new “Alien” series that might be in development, have more juice on the project – or rather, projects.

The site believes there are now two films in development that play out in the world of Ridley Scott’s hit science-fiction film, with one of them housed at Hulu.

Says the site :

Details are scarce at the moment but there might be multiple seasons that could tackle different corners/eras of the franchise, not unlike Noah Hawley’s series Fargo. In theory, I could see them possibly filling gaps in the franchise or crafting brand new stories to tell within the Alien universe. It still seems to be the very early days with these projects and I can’t exactly speak to what they’ll be about at the moment.


It’s been an exciting week for “Alien” fans, with “Aliens” director James Cameron revealing last week that he might be helping get the next instalment in the film series going.
