‘Harry Potter’ Is Officially Getting A Sequel

Muggles, rejoice!

Try not to freak out, but J.K. Rowling is releasing a sequel called called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Except it’s not a book, it’s a two-part play that will open in London’s West End next year. It will pick up where the seventh book left off, meaning it will feature an adult Harry Potter and his son, Albus Severus Potter. So does that mean the original cast will be back? Probably not. Casting hasn’t been announced yet for the play, so we can still keep your fingers crossed that Daniel Radcliffe will miraculously decide to reprise his role as Harry on the stage.  More »

Toni Braxton Is Producing A Biopic Based On Her Memoir For Lifetime TV

The AUTHORIZED Toni Braxton Story

Lifetime TV has made a name for itself by producing cheesy made-for-TV movies that have, in recent months, focused on telling unauthorized tales of beloved TV shows like Saved By The Bell, Full House, Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place. Today we learn that they have partnered with singer Toni Braxton to produce an authorized biopic film that will be based on her 2014 memoir Un-Break My Heart. With Toni executive producing the film, there is a slight chance that the production value of this particular biopic TV movie might be elevated above the rest of Lifetime’s TV movie programming but … I’m not holding my breath. But, in all honesty, if Toni is cool with letting Lifetime tell her story, I’m totally cool with it, too. More »

Starz Will Officially Produce Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ TV Series Adaptation

A home at last

At long last, the television series adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s novel American Gods has found a TV home. You may or may not recall that back in 2011, we first learned that HBO was interested in turning American Gods into a TV series, shortly thereafter it was reported that Tom Hanks‘s production company was interested in adapting the series for HBO … then we heard nothing. In February of 2014 we got an update that plans were still in the works for Gods to be turned into a TV series but it would not be on HBO and, therefore, would not be produced by Hanks‘s company. In July of last year, we first heard that Starz (which also produces Outlander and Power) was interested in taking on the series … and today, they’ve officially confirmed that they have picked up the series. The TV version of American Gods will be coming to Starz and I couldn’t be more thrilled. More »
