Melissa McCarthy in Spy

Melissa McCarthy has boarded her next project, working once again with husband and frequent director Ben Falcone on science-fiction comedy Super-Intelligence for New Line Cinema.

McCarthy is one of the biggest names in modern comedy, and she works primarily with two directors for her various projects. When she’s not re-teaming with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig (they collaborated on The Heat, Spy and Ghostbusters since then), she’s working with husband and creative partner Ben Falcone. McCarthy and Falcone are one of the premier power couples working in comedy, writing scripts together as vehicles for McCarthy to headline to boost her stardom and for her husband to direct. They’ve worked on three projects together to date, to varying degrees ...

Watchmen Entire Team

Damon Lindelof is playing coy about his potential involvement with HBO’s upcoming Watchmen series. The Lost and The Leftovers writer/producer has been widely reported to be developing an adaptation of Alan Moore’s graphic novel for the cable channel, but has suggested nothing is official yet.

A longtime TV veteran, Lindelof broke through in 2004 as the co-showrunner — along with Carlton Cuse — of ABC’s mystery epic Lost. Lost revolutionized network television storytelling, embracing new narrative tools that involved flashbacks, time travel, and some truly innovative science fiction tricks. Lindelof followed up Lost with work on blockbusters like Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus ...

Keanu Reeves in John Wick

Lionsgate is looking into establishing a John Wick universe by retooling their recently acquired action script, Ballerina. Keanu Reeves returned to the action genre in 2014 by starring in the film John Wick, based on a script by Derek Kolstad, in which he played an assassin who comes out of retirement to exact revenge on the people who stole his car and killed his dog. The movie became an astounding success, achieving critical acclaim and grossing more than four times its production budget, so it wasn’t surprising when the studio commissioned a sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2.

Chapter 2 released earlier this year to overwhelming acclaim from critics ...

Lost Co-Creator Curious & Excited About Inevitable Revival

0

Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof has no plans to go back to the island, but he’s curious what others will do if the show is eventually revisited. While moviegoers lament the big screen’s obsession with reboots and revivals, TV has spent just as long using pre-existing series to churn out new content. Whether it’s called a reboot or revival, every year brings at least one new project based on a show from the past. So when it comes to one of the biggest TV series of all time, will we ever see a new version of Lost?

While we’ve dreamt of Lost being made today with a whole new batch of actors, another likelihood is that ABC ...

The Flash on CW

When Barry finally escapes the Speed Force in the upcoming fourth season of The Flash, he won’t be the same as when he went in. When Barry stepped into the Speed Force at the end of season 3, it wasn’t his first time in the mysterious energy construct that grants him his powers. But after freeing Savitar and then Jay from the prison within, Barry’s act of sacrifice has led to a much longer stay.

Thanks to the Comic-Con trailer for the new season, we know the first batch of episodes likely won’t feature the Scarlet Speedster. With Central City’s main hero away, Wally will be stepping up. Meanwhile, ...
