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.

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.

He won’t be in it, but Sylvester Stallone is set to relaunch one of his other famous characters from the Reagan-era.

During a Q&A with Stallone at the Cannes Film Festival this week, the star of September’s “Last Blood” revealed plans to bring ‘Cobra’ to the small screen.

Sylvester Stallone

“That should have been another franchise because that character was so cool. And I blew it. My personal life got in the way. But we’re trying to bring it back as a streaming TV series. Bring out the zombie squad. I’m long gone, but the idea is really good.”

The film, released in 1986 and directed by George P.Cosmatos, told of a tough-on-crime street cop must protect the only surviving witness to a strange murderous cult with far reaching plans.

The oft-muttered “Obi-Wan Kenobi” project popped it’s viewfinder from the ice of Hoth again today.

Floated for a couple of years now, a new series or film franchise fixing on the lost years – that time between “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope” – of fuzzy-faced Jedi, ‘Old Ben’.
