Amazon Sparks To Shauna Cross eOne Hourlong Female Superhero Saga ‘Deadtown’

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Amazon Studios has stepped up for Deadtown, an Entertainment One and Grey Matter Entertainment script that will be developed for a pilot by Shauna Cross. Deadtown is an adaptation of the Catherynne M. Valente novella The Refrigerator Monologues and the hourlong premise is a blueprint to create an original superhero universe set in the modern era with an underlying theme of female empowerment.

Five recently-dead women meet in Deadtown, a purgatory where they discover that their entire lives were merely in service to the superhero men they happened to cross paths with, resulting in each of their deaths. Or in comic book terms, they were “refrigerated”–frozen out of the story once they provided emotional backstory for the men. Until now. They start to discover their own powers, tell their sides of the narrative, and decide to write their own damn stories. And a group of seemingly ordinary women discover their own true power.

Blumhouse’s First Scripted Podcast Will Recreate the Inside of Trump’s White House

After tackling film and TV, Blumhouse has its sights set on a new medium. And while this new venture is based on a true story, it won’t be quite the kind of horror some fans might be used to. On Wednesday, the company announced a new podcast, “The Oval Office Tapes,” which will put words to the inner workings of the current White House.

Filmmaker Rj Cutler created the series, which is slated to begin in September for a weekly, 10-episode run. In addition to producing the seminal 1993 campaign doc “The War Room,” Cutler won an Emmy for the Fox/PBS docuseries “American High” and directed the 2014 film “If I Stay” with Chloe Grace Moretz. Writer and political reporter Scott Conroy will serve as showrunner.

Each episode of the series will dramatize the week’s political headlines from the perspective of prominent figures within the Trump Administration. No casting has been announced yet,

Rebecca Thomas Will Direct Sci-Fi Thriller “Intelligent Life”

Rebecca Thomas: Perri Nemiroff/YouTube

Rebecca Thomas will be taking the reins on another sci-fi film. The “Stranger Things” director — who signed on for the sci-fi action-thriller “Malignant” earlier this month — will helm Amblin Entertainment’s “Intelligent Life.” The Hollywood Reporter broke the story.

Originally written by “Jurassic World” scribes Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, “Intelligent Life” follows a Un worker who manages to communicate with a woman — who is possibly an alien — as he surveils outer space. Jay Roach (“Game Change”) was hired last year to touch up Trevorrow and Connolly’s script, and Thomas will also reportedly be contributing some re-writes.

“Rebecca beautifully captured the alienation we often feel amongst our fellow humans in her first feature [‘Electrick Children’],” Trevorrow and producer Frank Marshall said in a statement. “We can’t wait to see her explore those themes further in a story about our place in the universe.”

Ava DuVernay was originally in talks to direct Lupita Nyong’o in “Intelligent Life.” Neither woman is still attached to the project.

Based on the Boom! Studios comic “Malignant Man” and written by Zak Olkewicz, Thomas’ “Malignant” will center on a terminally ill patient who is tasked with fighting a secret army after finding out his tumor is actually an alien parasite.

Thomas has a number of high-profile films in the works, including a live-action telling of “The Little Mermaid” starring Chloe Grace Moretz (“If I Stay”), and an adaptation of beloved John Green Ya novel “Looking for Alaska.” In March she signed on to bring Cheryl Della Pietra’s semi-autobiographical novel “Gonzo Girl” to the big screen.

She made her feature debut with 2012’s “Electrick Children,” a drama about a Mormon teen who thinks she was impregnated by listening to music. Shorts “Ivan Sings” and “Las Vegas, West,” and an episode of Jennifer Kaytin Robinson’s “Sweet/Vicious” are among her other credits.

Rebecca Thomas Will Direct Sci-Fi Thriller “Intelligent Life” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

According to a new report from Big Brother Network, Mark who is the house’s main target for eviction this week tried to talk with current Hoh Christmas and her main sidekick Josh in the Hoh room yesterday, August 20th at around 6:05 pm pacific time. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to get them to change their focus on getting him out, but he did get them to change their totem pole. Before he went to talk with them, the totem pole was to go after Jason next. Then somehow blindside Matt. After that, go after Kevin. After Mark talked to them, they decided that Alex should be their next target before Jason. Shockingly, Christmas and Josh made this decision without their king Paul. But I’m sure they’ll eventually run it by him so he can talk them out of it should he see fit. Anyways, during the conversation,

Everything, Everything review – a bland teen romance, totally devoid of hormones

In this adaptation of Nicola Yoon’s Ya novel, a girl with an immunodeficiency disease has a chaste and grown-up relationship with the boy next door

Here is yet another teen romance (like The Fault in Our Stars and If I Stay) inflicting a critical illness on its adolescent protagonist, turning boy-meets-girl into a life-or-death crisis.

Adapted from Nicola Yoon’s Ya novel, it stars Amandla Stenberg (Rue in The Hunger Games) as Maddy, a housebound 17-year-old with an immunodeficiency disease that makes her allergic to everything in the outside world – especially Olly (Nick Robinson), the hot skater kid who has just moved in next door. Unable to hook up Irl, the pair start instant messaging, beginning a blandly grown-up sext-free relationship. Both appear totally devoid of teenage hormones and Maddy is freakily well-adjusted for a teenager who has never set foot out of home. This is anaemic stuff, though

Rebecca Thomas: Perri Nemiroff/YouTube

Rebecca Thomas has booked yet another gig. According to Variety, the “Stranger Things” helmer has signed on to direct “Malignant,” a sci-fi action-thriller from Fox.

Based on the Boom! Studios comic “Malignant Man,” the film will center on a terminally ill patient who “discovers that his malignant tumor is actually a mysterious alien parasite. He’s assigned to battle a secret army,” the source summarizes.

Zak Olkewicz penned the script.

Other women-helmed comic book adaptations on the way include Gina Prince-Bythewood’s “Silver & Black” and “Captain Marvel,” co-directed by Anna Boden.

Thomas has a number of high-profile films in the works, including a live-action telling of “The Little Mermaid” starring Chloe Grace Moretz (“If I Stay”), and an adaptation of beloved John Green Ya novel “Looking for Alaska.” In March she signed on to bring Cheryl Della Pietra’s semi-autobiographical novel “Gonzo Girl” to the big screen.

She made her feature debut with 2012’s “Electrick Children,” a drama about a Mormon teen who thinks she was impregnated by listening to music. “I was raised mainstream Mormon in Las Vegas, so I had a TV and went to public school, and I had people who weren’t Mormon as my friends,” Thomas shared when she was asked about how much of the film was influenced by her own experiences.

Mireille Enos in “The Catch”: Kelsey McNeal/ABC

Vertical Entertainment has snagged the U.S. rights to the Mireille Enos thriller “Never Here,” Deadline reports. The film, which made its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 18, will receive a theatrical release later this year and will air on Starz in 2018.

Written and directed by Camille Thoman (“The Longest Game”), “Never Here” follows Miranda (Enos), an installation artist who is engaging in an affair. When her lover sees a violent crime from Miranda’s apartment, she decides to protect him and report it to the police herself. “Miranda poses as the primary witness, making statements to the police about a crime she did not see, and she begins to create a new piece of work based on these circumstances,” Deadline writes. “It sends Miranda into a maze of doubt and fear, blurring the lines between artist and subject.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Starz and the ‘Never Here’ team to bring this incredibly visceral film to audiences,” Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg commented. “Camille’s distinct vision threads an especially unique story that calls for active participation from every viewer.”

Never Here” also stars Nina Arianda (“Florence Foster Jenkins”), Ana Nogueira (“Vampire Diaries”), Sam Shepard (“Bloodlines”), Goran Visnjic (“Timeless”), Vincent Piazza (“The Intervention”), and Desmin Borges (“You’re the Worst”).

Wonderbar Productions and Before the Door Pictures are producing “Never Here.” Thoman is serving as producer alongside Elizabeth Yng-Wong, Bronwyn Cornelius, Julian Cautherley, Radium Cheung, and Corey Moosa.

Enos starred as Sarah Linden in Veena Sud’s mystery series “The Killing” from 2011 to 2014. The “If I Stay” actress earned a Golden Globe nod for the role. Enos portrayed Alice Vaughan in the Shondaland romantic thriller “The Catch” for two seasons. The ABC show was cancelled earlier this year.

Film Review: ‘Everything, Everything’ Offers Close to Nothing, Nothing

Chicago – I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the target audience for these stock young adult romance novels. Aside from the odd fascination and romanticization of teenage death and terminal illness, these stories feel trite and much closer to fantasy than anything real or plausible. This is what the film “Everything, Everything” brings to the table, which essentially translates to Nothing, Nothing.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

I am patient and empathetic. I always try to understand another person’s point of view or outlook especially when it doesn’t mirror my own. Going into every film with an open mind is the only way to truly open yourself to the experience it is trying to impart. I didn’t know anything when going into “Everything, Everything” but it soon became clear that I actually knew exactly how the story was going to progress after the first ten minutes. This

‘Alien Covenant,’ ‘Wimpy Kid,’ and 20th Century Fox Will Lead the Box-Office Weekend

‘Alien Covenant,’ ‘Wimpy Kid,’ and 20th Century Fox Will Lead the Box-Office Weekend
This weekend, it’s all about 20th Century Fox. The studio is in the unusual position of opening two sequels, Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul.” With the second weekend of “Snatched” and the long-running “The Baby Boss,” that should give them four titles in the top 10.

Joining the two new titles is “Everything, Everything” (Warner Bros.), an adaptation of the young-adult novel about the first love of a chronically ill teenage girl. Those three, along with the continued strength of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” could propel top 10 grosses into a second straight week of improvement over last year. A robust Mother’s Day actually pushed last weekend slightly ahead of 2016’s.

“The Birth of the Pill” TV Adaptation Headed to National Geographic

Soon you’ll be able to watch a scripted series about the creation of the birth control pill alongside documentaries about nature and foreign cultures. According to The Hollywood Reporter, National Geographic has plans to develop “The Birth of the Pill,” a scripted adaptation of Jonathan Eig’s 2014 nonfiction book of the same name.

Eig’s book traces Planned Parenthood founder and feminist Margaret Sanger and philanthropist Katherine McCormick’s fight to provide women with safe, reliable contraception. With scientist Gregory Pincus and Ob-gyn John Rock, Sanger and McCormick “took on the scientific establishment, the church, and cultural norms in their fight,” THR summarizes.

Nat Geo is developing “The Birth of the Pill” in partnership with Fox. “Unforgettable” director Denise Di Novi will exec produce the project with Alison Greenspan, and Sonar Entertainment is producing with R.J. Cutler. Di Novi, Greenspan, and Cutler previously collaborated on the 2014 romance “If I Stay.”

It was originally reported that Audrey Wells (“Under the Tuscan Sun”) would write the first episode and Cutler would direct, but it’s unclear whether that plan is still going forward. Wells’ role was not mentioned in THR.

The source also details the other women-created narrative projects in the works at Nat Geo, including the history of the Ebola virus, “The Hot Zone,” and an untitled drama about the beginning of National Geographic itself.

The Hot Zone,” from Lynda Obst (“Insterstellar”), traces Ebola’s inception in the central African rain forest and its eventual migration to the U.S. The drama centers on “a U.S. Army veterinarian, working with a secret military Swat team, who puts herself in peril trying to contain the outbreak,” THR writes. “Under the Dome” writers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson will pen the script with Jeff Vintar (“I, Robot”). Fox 21 and Scott Free are exec producing.

National Geographic’s origin story will be exec produced by Marti Noxon (“UnREAL”). The untitled project “kicks off in the 1960s when a field producer is put in charge of two production teams as they shoot Nat Geo’s first TV documentaries in Siberia and Australia, braving espionage, scandal, and hostile environments.” Noxon is also producing under her Tiny Pyro Productions banner. The project is written by Erik Jendresen (“Band of Brothers”), also an Ep.

“This scripted development slate further solidifies our commitment to developing diverse projects with themes and issues that resonate and are relevant to our audience,” Courteney Monroe, Nat Geo Global Networks CEO, commented. “We are working with the best storytellers in the world to tell these very human stories that we hope will create global conversation and change the way viewers look at the world around them.”
