'RIVERDALE': WARNER BROS. REFUTES UNSAFE-WORKPLACE CHARGES FOLLOWING STAR'S CAR CRASH

KJ Apa

Warner Bros. Television has refuted charges of unsafe working conditions on “Riverdale” a week after the show’s star was involved in a late-night car crash.

“The safety of the cast and crew on all of our productions is of paramount importance to the Studio,” a studio spokesperson said in a pair of statements issued Thursday. “Productions adhere to the Screen Actors Guild–mandated turnaround time of 12 hours from wrap time to next day call time for cast members. In accordance with industry standard policy, if any cast or crew member feels tired or unsafe at any time after working, the Studio will provide a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request. This is communicated to all cast and crew, both in writing and verbally, at the beginning of production and is reiterated continuously throughout the duration of production.”

K.J. Apa, who plays Archie Andrews on the Warner Bros. Television-produced series, was involved in a crash last week that caused severe damage to his vehicle, but left him without significant injuries. Apa was treated by first responders on the scene and visited by doctors the following morning before returning to set thae day after the crash. The actor had been driving a rental car after being involved in a minor accident near set a few days earlier.

Regarding Apa’s crash, the studio spokesperson said, “First and foremost, we are extremely grateful that KJ Apa was uninjured during his recent accident. Secondarily, we want to specifically address the characterization that conditions on the set of “Riverdale” are of concern. We have a large cast of series regulars, and our actors do not work every day. On the day of the accident, KJ worked 14.2 hours. The previous day he worked 2.5 hours, and the day before that he worked 7.7 hours. KJ has repeatedly been informed about making production aware if he is tired or feels unsafe, and if so, either a ride or hotel room will be provided for him. The accident occurred last Thursday. Additionally, it is untrue that KJ was taken to the hospital. He was treated by first responders on the scene and released by them. We also sent a doctor to his home later that same day for a follow-up to confirm his well-being.”

Following the accident, several actors confronted producers regarding transportation policies for the show, which they believed contributed to an unsafe work environment. Warner Bros. does not provide transportation to and from the show’s Vancouver set. However, the studio’s policy for “Riverdale” and all of its series is to provide transportation upon request for all cast and crew should they feel too tired to drive at the end of the workday. As with other shows, production on “Riverdale” often stretches into very late hours. A source says that the studio policy of providing a car service or taxi — as well as a nearby hotel room — upon request to any cast or crew member was announced at the start of production this season and is reiterated periodically in notices attached to call sheets.

BILL FINGER’S STREET SIGN GOES UP IN THE SPOT WHERE HE CO-CREATED BATMAN

It actually happened. After discussions and expectations, the much-unacclaimed co-creator of Batman has been honored with a street sign. Bill Finger‘s stepson Steve Simmons and granddaughter Athena Finger did the honors (see below, via Bleeding Cool).

The renaming was of a road at the intersection of East 192nd Street and Grand Concourse in the Bronx. The intersection is next to Poe Park, where Finger would work out ideas with Dark Knight co-creator Bob Kane.

The point where Batman was created now bears Finger’s name!

WARNER BROS. CONFIRMS DC FILM LINEUP

Aquaman

While at the Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, fans got a chance to see the lineup for the upcoming DCEU films from Warner Bros. With the less-than-hoped-for results of Justice League last month, a lot of questions have been bouncing around about the future of the current slate of films. But things seem to be moving forward for now. (via Bleeding Cool)

The presentation was mainly with title cards. The Wonder Woman logo was flanked by a pair of Roman columns, maybe symbolizing II. Then there was Aquaman, Flashpoint, then, surprisingly, a card for Justice League Dark. Then there was Suicide Squad 2, Batgirl, Shazam, Green Lantern Corps and The Batman.

Films that have been talked about that didn’t get cards include Cyborg, Justice League 2, or any of the Harley Quinn/Gotham Sirens films. No mention of a Black Adam film either or any of the other rumored ones like Deadshot, Deathstroke or Joker.
'WALKING DEAD' BOSS ON FAN FAVE CHARACTER'S FATE

Showrunner Scott M. Gimple confirmed the looming fate of a fan favorite during Sunday's 'Talking Dead.'

Spoilers ahoy!

Sunday's midseason finale for "The Walking Dead" is expected to take a big bite out of the ratings for AMC, but something else has apparently taken a bite out of a beloved character. (via The Hollywood Reporter)

Carl (Chandler Riggs), son of TWD's resident hero Rick (Andrew Lincoln) in the final moments of last night's midseason closer revealed that he had been bitten by a walker a few episodes ago and that he was indeed dying.

Riggs' final episode will be the Feb. 25 season eight midseason premiere in which Carl will take his final breaths.

Showrunner Scott M. Gimple said Sunday on AMC's post-show "Talking Dead": "That is a bite on his side. … It will play out as bites play out on the show. It's very important to Carl's story and the entire story, what happens in the next episode. I'm just focused on the fact that Carl right now is alive and he has some business to attend to. That is a one-way ticket. But I'd like to think that the things we see in the next episode are so important to his life and the other characters' lives."

Some fans were shocked because the storyline move is a huge departure from comic book source material, and fans of the TV series have always seen Carl as Rick's heir and the show's future.

Yeah, about that ...
CARRIE FISHER REMEMBERED AS ‘THE LAST JEDI’ HAS WORLD PREMIERE

Three's the charm.

Disney held a theme park-style world premiere for its third movie in the Star Wars saga, "The Last Jedi," the third year in a row it has done so. The "Last Jedi" premiere pulled in 6,300 attendees, which stands as a record among Disney’s three Star Wars premieres, reports Deadline.

Prior to the movie premiere, "Last Jedi" filmmaker Rian Johnson told the packed house, “I want to dedicate tonight to Carrie [Fisher, portrayer of Princess Leia, who passed away earlier this year], who is up there right now flipping me the bird, saying ‘Damn it, Rian, don’t you dare make this night a solemn tribute’.”

"Last Jedi" should be somewhat of a catharsis for Fisher fans during the year-end anniversary of her death. They will also be stoked by the expanded role of Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd as Lt. Connix in the sequel.

(via Variety)In its third week at the B.O., "Coco" has headed the primary slot amid a sea of holdovers.

ERIKA LEWIS AND J.K. WOODWARD'S THE 49TH KEY SELLS OUT UPON RELEASE

Source: Heavy Metal | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


For forty years, Heavy Metal has been the leading anthology of science fiction and fantasy, breaking new talent, and providing a platform for legends in comics and genre to push the boundaries of visual storytelling. This tradition continues in The 49TH Key, an original story from Erika Lewis and artist J.K. Woodward, which premiered in the pages of the historic magazine in 2015. Now, upon today’s release of this anticipated graphic novel in comic shops, the book is sold out at Diamond Comic Distributors!

49th Key is based on the 16th century legend of Enochian magic, which tells of a secret language of angels. The first chapter in an expansive fantasy series tells of a rogue archeologist and a young mute boy on a treacherous journey through England to bring the boy home. The boy turns out to be the key to a gateway between our world and that of Enochia, a magical society that exists below the Earth's surface, filled with fantasy creatures and highly advanced humans.

Heavy Metal has always been about unique and imaginative worlds. Erika Lewis and JK Woodward’s vision for Enochia is a perfect continuation of that tradition” said Heavy Metal’s Jeff Krelitz. “I couldn’t be more excited for this story to be the first to be collected in the modern era of the brand, and am thrilled retailers supported it with such strong orders.”

“The script offers a journey of twists, turns and revelations that take the reader through multiple and fantastic settings. It was visually a thrill to paint and challenged me artistically like no other project. I couldn't be prouder to be a part of this” says artist J.K. Woodward

“A simple visit to the British Museum sparked an idea. While living in London, the story started to come together. And with J.K. Woodward's incredible talent, it now comes to life” says writer Erika Lewis.

Erika Lewis and J.K. Woodward’s The 49TH Key is a beautifully painted 120 page original graphic novel, which was initially serialized in Heavy Metal Magazine from 2015-2016. With 12 never-before-seen pages, signed and limited first printings of this collected edition are ONLY available in your local comic shop, while supplies last. The title will release in limited quantities in finer bookstores everywhere on Decemeber 19. Details on second printing are forthcoming.

Erika Lewis graduated from Vanderbilt University and went on to earn an Advanced Certificate in Creative Writing from Stony Brook University. In addition to a successful career in television, Lewis is the author of the recently released Game of Shadows from Tor Books, Firebrand and Cursed from Legendary Comics. www.erikalewis.com

J.K. Woodward started his professional comics career in 2003 and went on to work on several titles for IDW, BOOM! Studios, Dark Horse, Archaia and Marvel. He’s worked on such titles as X-Men Origins:Beast, Star Trek, Doctor Who,Peter David’s Fallen Angel, Mars Attacks and more. He currently illustrates Peter David's Fallen Angel as a reoccurring miniseries for IDW as well as various cover and sequential work for multiple publications. His most current projects include illustration for the Star Trek/Doctor Who, 8-issue mini series, Assimilation2, Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever, the Harlan Ellison original Teleplay and the latest Star Trek mini series, Star Trek The Next Generation: Mirror Broken, written by Scott and Dave Tipton.
