The Time Traveler’s Wife now a series at HBO

The series follows a 2009 film adaptation of the book, with Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams in the lead roles.



A TV series based on Audrey Niffenegger’s “The Time Traveler’s Wife” has been ordered to series at HBO.

Steven Moffat (“Doctor Who”) will adapt and executive produce the small-screen take which tells the story of Clare and Henry, and a marriage with a problem… time travel.

Says Moffat, “I read Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife many years ago, and I fell in love with it. In fact, I wrote a Doctor Who episode called The Girl In The Fireplace as a direct response to it. When, in her next novel, Audrey had a character watching that very episode, I realised she was probably on to me. All these years later, the chance to adapt the novel itself, is a dream come true. The brave new world of long form television is now ready for this kind of depth and complexity. It’s a story of happy ever after? – ?but not necessarily in that order.”

Casey Bloys adds, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Steven Moffat, Hartswood and WBTV on The Time Traveler’s Wife. Steven’s passion is evident in every project he’s written and we are certain that his love and respect for this mesmerizing and textured novel will make it a quintessential HBO series”.

Here’s the full cast for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot!

Biggsy, The Dawson, Brodie, Shannon Elizabeth, Chris Jericho… and many more!

Caffeinated Clint



Well, so far...

It’s been hard to keep up with the many casting announcements – usually outed by the mac-daddy himself, K.Smith, on Instagram – over on the “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot”, which is currently filming in Louisiana. Under the direction of super-fit filmmaker Kevin Smith, the film sees the two hapless hangouts from your youth (Okay, my youth..) off on a trek to Hollywood to squish a reboot of ‘Bluntman and Chronic’ from getting made.  The flick, unarguably my most anticipated of 2019’s arse end (well, it’s a close call between “Reboot” and “Terminator : Dark Fate”), is due in theaters in the fall.

So, anywho, in addition to Smith and Jason Mewes, back in pivotal first billed positions, the former has rounded up a lot of his old pals – and some new ones – to appear either briefly or extensively in the laffer. There’s current it-stars like Grant Gustin (aka “The Flash”), View Askew-staples like Jason Lee (as his “Mallrats” character – and maybe more?), and even hulkish “True Blood” alum Joe Manganiello. But that’s just the tip of the Peter Berg.

Before we get to the list, ‘what about Ben Affeck?’ I hear you ask..

No, he never did get rid of that thigh-rash caused by the Bat suit.

Oh, but in terms of this?

Yup, sounds like it’s gonna happen. Despite Affleck and Smith’s fractured relationship, the “Chasing Amy” and “Mallrats” star said he’d be up for making an appearance in his old friend’s ‘comeback’ flick.

“I haven’t been asked to make an appearance, but you never know, there’s still time”, Affleck said in a new interview. “We’ll see. I think if it was up to me, I would rather do Holden (from “Chasing Amy”) than Shannon (From “Mallrats”), but I would defer to Kevin.”

So, sounds goodablelikely, yah?

Blumhouse rebooting The Craft

A new quartet to try out some spells!





A reboot of ’90s horror classic “The Craft” is in the works at Blumhouse.

The news hails from Production Weekly, who have Zoe Lister-Jones (“Band Aid”) writing and directing for a July 2019 start. Jason Blum, Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher are the billed producers, with Daniel Casey on scripting duties with Lister-Jones.

According to the site, the new film features a quartet of new witches-in-training.

“A remake of the 1996 supernatural teen thriller. When starting at a new school, Hannah befriends Tabby, Lourdes, and Frankie & quickly becomes the fourth member of their Clique. Hannah soon learns that she somehow brings great power to the quartet.”

Robin Tunney, one of the stars of the 1996 film, previously spoke about what she believed what make a reboot or sequel successful.

“I feel like in order to make it seem culturally relevant, they need to do something [new] and do it quite well. They just can’t pick it up where it left off and it’s all of our kids or something,” Tunney pointed out. “Generations of people have watched it. It’s the idea of somebody just trying to monetize that and not caring if it’s good or not would be sad. I would love to do it if I thought it was going to be cool. I’m so proud of the fact that I was in a movie that has been loved by so many generations of people and watched at so many sleepovers. It’s an honor.”
