It’s common knowledge that showing your kids an Eli Roth movie would likely result in an immediate visit from Child Protective Services. That all changes with today’s announcement that the controversial director of such films as Hostel and The Green Inferno will be adapting a popular children’s book into a feature film! THR reports that Roth will be teaming up with Jack Black to bring John Belliers’ The House With a Clock In Its Walls to the silver screen. The script was written by Eric Kripke (the Supernatural television series), who will also be serving as a co-producer.
Deadline is reporting that Glen Mazzara (show runner for early seasons of the Walking Dead) will be writing and producing a new television series based on Frank Miller’s Sin City.
Mazzara is joined by “Underworld helmer Len Wiseman, whose TV credits include Sleepy Hollow and Lucifer, will direct. Stephen L’Heureux (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) will oversee and produce with Miller, Mazzara, Wiseman and Bob & Harvey Weinstein.”
The program will reportedly “… be a far departure from the films, introducing original characters and timelines within the Sin City universe.” It is unclear if the series will follow the cinematic style of the films or the artwork of the comic at this time, or if it will go in a more realistic direction. read more
