Amazon’s Zombieland Show Got ‘Hated Out of Existence,’ Sad Writer Reports
“Our Zombieland series will not be moving forward on Amazon,” tweeted writer/producer Rhett Rheese (he also wrote the 2009 movie), before telling the world exactly how he feels: “Sad for everyone involved. I’ll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans. You guys successfully hated it out of existence. Anyway, we did our best, and we’re very proud of our team.” Oof.
Un po’ me lo sentivo. Peccato, però

James Ellroy Shopping an L.A. Confidential Sequel Series
Author James Ellroy has written a series positioned as a sequel to L.A. Confidential. The drama is “being pitched to broadcast and cable networks as well as emerging distribution platforms, with multiple outlets interested,” says Deadline, adding there’s a possibility of a straight-to-series commitment. It’s a big moment for Ellroy, with his 2012 novella Shakedown being adapted at FX, plus James Franco doing a movie version of American Tabloid.
Eh, speriamo (soprattutto che non la snaturino)!
Holy crap, this sounds promising. AMC wants a new genre show to serve as a companion piece to The Walking Dead, and according to Deadline, they’re developing Ballistic City, described as “Blade Runner meetsBattlestar Galactica.” Crime on a generation ship!
The pilot would be directed and executive produced by Joseph Kosinski (Tron Legacy, Oblivion) and written by Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim). Also producing: Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Michael Sugar. According to Deadline, Ballistic City ”tells the story of a former cop thrust into the criminal underworld of a city housed in a generational space ship destined for an unknown world.”

I tizi coinvolti hanno un po’ troppe baracconate nel CV per i miei gusti, ma chissà che stavolta non riescano a tirare fuori qualcosa di decente.
Amazon have started streaming the pilot for their Zombieland series right now, and anybody who can access their site with a connection good enough to handle video can watch it.
Simply click on over and give it a view.
In realtà al momento l’episodio non è più disponibile, ma Amazon Instant Video dovrebbe ricaricarlo nelle prossime ore.
Comunque sarà difficile tenersi all’altezza del film, temo.
*** SPOILER ALERT se non siete in pari con HOMELAND ***
[…] One thing I realized as Quinn had Brody lined up in his gun sights was that this season has been quite the indictment of the Obama administration’s pursuit of the war on terrorism, only all of the writing about the crazy plotting has obscured that fact. Indeed, administration policies drive much of the crazy plotting. We have secret assassinations, drone strikes, and numerous other elements that are fixtures of Obama policy that drive many on the right and left nuts. (Okay, I don’t think the Obama administration is fucking with anybody’s pacemakers just yet.) And when the terrorist leader says in his statement that the war goes on, the series underlines the futility of perpetual warfare. These are people marked by a war that cannot end, who will only be able to release it when they die. It’s sobering stuff, and it keeps popping up in a series where magic helicopters can appear. […]

Watch As Homeland’s Sad Chris Brody Is Always Asked to Leave the Room
While Homeland fans viciously debate the plausibility of recent plot events from this season and the likeability of world champion eye-roller Dana Brody, we’ve been paying attention to her little brother, Chris, a character with even less screen time than Max or Galvez. It seems that whenever Chris is in a scene, he is promptly asked to get out so that the grownups can talk about affairs, terrorism, the CIA, the dead person weighing on his sister’s conscience … you know, the usual. With all his exits laid end to end in this video, it’s clear that Chris is the real victim on this show, not the vice-president.

No, look, there’s a blue box. It’s bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. It can go anywhere in time and space and sometimes even where it’s meant to go. And when it turns up, there’s a bloke in it called The Doctor and there will be stuff wrong and he will do his best to sort it out and he will probably succeed ‘cause he’s awesome. Now sit down, shut up, and watch ‘Blink’.
