Brian Fuller and Michael Green Exit ‘American Gods’

Deadline is reporting that the creators of Starz’s American Gods series, Brian Fuller and Michael Green, have abruptly left the show.

The duo “…created the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 award-winning novel and served as executive producers/showrunners on the show, which debuted this past spring and earned a quick Season 2 renewal. We’ve learned that more than half of the scripts for Season 2, which had been targeting a mid-2018 premiere, have been written.”

It is also rumored that “…Gaiman may come on board as a co-showrunner but that is in flux as he also has series Good Omens for Amazon.” read more

‘Blade Runner 2049’: The Horror News Network Review & Analysis

Blade Runner 2049 is a breathtaking achievement which can remind even the bitterest critic of contemporary moviemaking that the big studios can still deliver artistic, emotional, and thought provoking material to cinemas. Between its expert handling of the source material, its downright gorgeous set design and cinematography, and its incredible performances, the film is a bona fide masterpiece which is more than worthy of the Blade Runner name.

Thirty-five years ago, Blade Runner was released in theaters after a rocky production period. The film didn’t exactly receive a warm reception, and there have since been multiple cuts of the film to more accurately reflect director Ridley Scott’s unadulterated, yet updated vision. However, throughout all of the cuts of the movie, fans and critics began to appreciate it more and more. Its aesthetic was decades ahead of its time, and its themes and motifs were simply beyond the scope of anything else available in the early 80s. It was beautiful, it was terrifying, it was haunting, and it was unforgettable. The movie has since achieved the kind of legendary status that few of its contemporaries currently enjoy; and creating a sequel after 35 years of nostalgia and canonization would be a daunting task for any director. read more
