Detailed Casting Calls Revealed For Damon Lindelof's Planned HBO 'Watchmen' Series


Damon Lindelof

We may not have an official release date just yet for HBO's upcoming 'Watchmen' television series, but more details surrounding the project, led by Damon Lindelof, is slowly beginning to trickle out. Based on the DC Comics series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, which was adapted for the big screen back in 2009 by Zack Snyder, the TV show is expected to deviate a little from the story that's already been told.

Though it's not yet been officially ordered to series by HBO, Damon Lindelof's 'Watchmen' TV project will be moving ahead and begins production on a pilot episode in March 2018. With around three months to go until the cameras are put up and cast members get right in front of them, bringing some of the comic book world's most iconic characters to life, we should expect names to be announced for exactly who'll be stepping into those roles over the next few weeks.

With the story now being explored on television however, many more hours can be dedicated to bringing the best fleshed out story to fans that Lindelof and his team around him can do.

Damon Lindelof

Damon Lindelof's television work is without a doubt some of the most popular we've seen in the past few years. Having created the likes of 'Lost' and 'The Leftovers', he's clearly somebody who enjoys tackling shows with a wider sense of mystery, and that's something that looks set to continue in the future, with the producer stepping in to work on HBO's planned 'Watchmen' TV series.

Whilst the Alan Moore graphic novel has been adapted in the past, the show will be an entirely fresh take on the story, with Lindelof working alongside television network HBO to bring it to life. Just a few months back, HBO ordered a pilot episode of the show, and with Lindelof's clear passion for the world of superheroes and this book in particular, he could be the perfect man for the job.

Lost Creator "Excited" By Prospect Of Series Revival


Damon Lindelof

Damon Lindelof is to many one of those responsible for bringing critically-acclaimed ABC series 'Lost' to the small screen, baffling minds across the globe with its incredibly complicated storytelling. Some would argue that the series never gave enough pay off to its fans in the form of a solid ending, while others interpreted it as exactly what was needed to say goodbye to the island and all of the fan-favourite characters that had been forced to reside there.

Now with almost seven years since the series finale, many wonder why the show hasn't yet been given a reboot, with other huge successes such as 'Prison Break' and '24' making their way back to television for a revival. That's also something Lindelof has been thinking about, and whilst it's something he would like to see, he wouldn't want to be involved in the inevitable comeback.

Tomorrowland Review


Good

Big summer blockbusters are so rarely optimistic that it's tricky to know how to take this movie, its utopian view of the future is a refreshing antidote to both dystopic-nightmare thrillers and those blood-boiling, doom-and-gloom documentaries about how the end of the world is nigh. Even more interesting is the idea that this movie is essentially based on Walt Disney himself, who believed creativity and invention were the key to a happy tomorrow. So it's a bit of a shame that everything feels so childish.

The story centres on the restless Casey (Britt Robertson), an almost frighteningly brainy teenager who's trying to keep Nasa from closing down the launch pad where her dad (Tim McGraw) works. Unknown to her, the eerily ageless young Athena (Raffey Cassidy) is watching, leaving a pin that's a key to a magical glimpse of a parallel space-age future. Investigating this, Casey travels to Houston, where she gets in trouble at a sci-fi collectible shop. Rescued by Athena, they travel to New York to meet Frank (George Clooney), a grumpy old man who was once a wide-eyed inventor like Casey and has known Athena since 1964. Together they work out a way to get back to Tomorrowland to confront its pessimistic leader Nix (Hugh Laurie), who seems to have accepted the fact that the world is falling apart.

The script briefly grazes against big ideas like global poverty and climate change, which gives the film a hint of weight to balance out a plot that is clearly aimed at a 10-year-old. It's all rather simplistic, which means it doesn't quite speak to grown-ups, although the positive approach can't help but catch the interest. Director Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) keeps the imagery whizzy, with fabulous gadgets and thrilling effects work that beautifully imagines a city of the future. Plus a pretty cool Eiffel Tower revelation. He also makes sure that the characters' intelligence shines through, which allows Robertson and Clooney to inject a sparky sense of rivalry.

George Clooney Britt Robertson Hugh Laurie Judy Greer Brad Bird Damon Lindelof Disney

It's now time to get excited for what looks to be one of the most visually stunning movies of the year as the first full trailer for George Clooney's 'Tomorrowland' arrives, bringing with it adventure, danger,  fantasy, and a whole lotta mystery.

There's not a lot of information being revealed out this upcoming magical, sci-fi journey, but from what we gather we can expect a shedload of futuristic gadgets, an object of extreme power, a mystical land beyond reach and angst-ridden teenaged hero. Standard fantasy stuff then - but we wouldn't have it any other way.

Will HBO's 'The Leftovers' Suffer From Lost's Dreadful Ending?


Justin Theroux Damon Lindelof

We're not going to go into the ending of Lost. It was clearly ridiculous and Damon Lindelof was burned badly by the backlash. Most would agree that the final two seasons of the show were so poorly put together that it was almost impossible to conclude with a coherent finale. 

The LeftoversJustin Theroux in 'The Leftovers'

Now, Lindelof is back with his latest series The Leftovers, a downbeat drama about life in a U.S town after the rapture. The first episode was melancholy and slow moving and left critics a little bemused. However, as Mark A. Perigard of the Boston Herald pointed out, we may as well strap ourselves in for a long, complex ride because Lindelof just isn't going to try do any explaining.

Brad Pitt Working On Script For World War Z Sequel: A Good Idea?


Brad Pitt Damon Lindelof

Brad Pitt has confirmed that he and his team are developing a sequel to the surprise zombie hit World War Z, though could put the stoppers on the project if the script isn't good enough. Plagued by production problems, Pitt's movie rallied to score solid reviews and a whopping $553 million at the worldwide box office earlier this year.

"We're certainly talking about it [a sequel], yes," he told Variety in a new interview. "We have so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work.We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further."

Sharknado Sequel: Producers Begin Quest To Lure Johnny Depp


Johnny Depp Damon Lindelof Tara Reid Ian Ziering

A sequel to the cable disaster movie Sharknado - about a tornado which triggers man-eating fish to take down the residents of Los Angeles - has been confirmed by Asylum Films. Premiering on the Syfy network on July 10, the movie reeled in just 1.3 million viewers though Sharknado was mentioned 5,000 times on Twitter during the broadcast alone.

The production company have cottoned onto the fact that people on Twitter like to watch people chainsawing out of Shark's mouths - they like to talk about how bad it is, but they're talking about it nonetheless. 

"Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm - on television. The fans are clamouring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel. What we can guarantee is that Sharknado 2 will be lots of fun. We'll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn't want our fans to worry they wouldn't get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year," said Syfy's Thomas Vitale.

Does 'World War Z' Have A Hidden Pro-North Korean Message?


Brad Pitt Marc Forster Damon Lindelof Christopher McQuarrie

Brad Pitt and Marc Forster's World War Z is undoubtedly a success given the state the movie was in some 6 months ago. Working on a huge budget, the zombie apocalypse movie was shaping up to be one of the biggest flops in cinematic history with murmurings of re-shoots, changed endings and discontent leaking from the set on a weekly basis.

According to a report in the New York Magazine's Vulture section, relations between Pitt and Forster became so fraught that the pair stopped speaking to each other altogether. Things apparently got so bad that when Forster had notes on a scene for Pitt, they had to be relayed through an intermediary.
