‘WILLOW’ SEQUEL SERIES OFFICIALLY A GO AT DISNEY+10/20/20 @ 4:05 pm EST
The Power Rangers are morphing again.THR
reports that Jonathan Entwistle, co-creator behind the recent series I’m Not Okay With This
, has been entrusted to engineer and shepherd the next series of screen adaptations of Power Rangers
, the colorful Hasbro superhero property.
But as opposed to the recent efforts, which focused primarily on the big-screen, the new initiative will see Entwistle overseeing, and directing, both film and television adaptations.
The move comes as eOne, the production banner acquired by Hasbro in late 2019, becomes more active in the development and the production of adaptations of Hasbro-based brands. A Power Rangers
feature was previously in development by Entwistle at Paramount but now the reins have been taken by eOne while Entwistle is seeing his involvement deepen and branch out.
Entwistle will act as a conductor of a connected story universe that will bridge across multiple platforms.

JAMIE FOXX TO EP AND STAR IN VAMPIRE HUNTER MOVIE 'DAY SHIFT' FOR NETFLIX10/20/20 @ 3:56 pm EST
Stephen Daldry has exited as the director of Wicked
, Universal’s long awaited screen adaptation of the smash hit stage musical. Sources tell Deadline
that the studio wants this movie mounted more quickly than Daldry was comfortable moving. Also, there was a shortage of stage space in London that will make it not possible to shoot the film there, something that was important to Daldry.
Daldry’s exit is reportedly amicable and becomes another creative casualty of the pandemic. Universal is back out looking for directors and it instantly becomes one of the more coveted Open Directing Assignments out there right now. The studio hopes to begin production late next year. Songwriter Stephen Schwartz and book writer Winnie Holzman teamed on the script and Marc Platt, who produces the stage musical with David Stone, is lead producer on the film.
The Wizard of Oz
prequel is based on the Gregory Maguire novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
, and focuses on the early relationship between Glinda the Good and Elphaba, a green-skinned beauty before she ended up a flying hag on a broomstick.

NEW 'TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE' TEASER POSTER RELEASED10/20/20 @ 11:14 am EST
Within the considerations for spinoffs of The Walking Dead
as the main series nears its true finale, chief content officer Scott Gimple reveals that the AMC zombie saga might continue in animated form. There are guaranteed spinoffs in the form of a Carol and Daryl series and Tales of the Walking Dead
. With Tales
, the franchise will introduce new characters and revisit familiar faces for short, episodic arcs. With the new series which brings a whole new storytelling format to the AMC franchise, Gimple suggests that animated episodes are certainly on the table and actually a goal.
"I will say that one thing I'm looking at hard is animation," said Gimple. "I mean, [Robert Kirkman] has a lot of talent around that, so that's one-stop shopping for me. [World Beyond
co-creator Matt Negrete] and I actually come from animation. We worked initially together in animation back in the day. And then we also went to college together. … But I mean, Invincible
is going to be a really interesting thing to see. Hour long animation? And the comic is fun, but it's not a comedy and it gets super dark and dramatic, regularly. So I can't wait for that. And Kirkman might lead the way on that too. It may lead us right back to a Walking Dead
animated series." (via ComicBook
)The Walking Dead: World Beyond
airs Sundays at 10pm ET, following new episodes of Fear the Walking Dead
at 9pm ET on AMC. The Walking Dead
will return for 6 more episodes of Season 10 in the Spring. The 11th and final season of The Walking Dead
will begin airing in the Fall of 2021.

1 hits store shelves on November 11th. The synopsis can be read below: After the stunning success of Fearscape, comes A Dark Interlude, the story of-No! The only offence to literature greater than the loathsome synopsis is the sequel. I will not stand idle while some poor excuse for an editor mangles and confuses my story, which is intact, perfect, and concluded, with this derivative drivel. Mark my words, this nonsense has nothing to do with my tale. I am not in it. I do not condone it. And you, dear reader, should not buy it.
