With a forward by Nathan Filion
Journalist Amy Pascale was tasked with writing a biography of Joss Whedon and as a longtime Whedon fan, I assume she happily took the task to heart. After all her hard work, which included speaking with Joss himself, Joss Whedon: The Biography is almost ready for release. The biography will go on sale this Friday and features a forward written by Whedonverse actor Nathan Filion (who first worked with Joss as the lead on Firefly before he took on cameo roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and co-starred in the web-only Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog). Click below to read an excerpt of Filion‘s forward to this Joss Whedon biography and make plans to buy this book when it comes out this week. This book might potentially become the bible of the Whedonverse. More »
Based on the memoir by Cheryl Strayed
Last July we learned that Reese Witherspoon acquired the rights to adapt the best-selling memoir Wild by Cheryl Strayed into a feature film. Today, we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the film. In February, I finally read the book for myself and really enjoyed it. As I read, I could envision in my head how a film adaptation might look. This trailer gives us our actual first taste of the final product. Click the embed above to see this first trailer for Wild and see what you think. Wild will open in theaters in December.

Executive Produced by Bryan Fuller (!!!!!!!!!!!!)
OMG, do I have the BEST NEWS EVER for fans of Neil Gaiman‘s novel American Gods. Back in February we learned that plans were still very much in the works for the book to be adapted into a TV series after it was reported that the project had been picked up by Freemantle Productions. We knew at the time that the series would not be headed for HBO as was originally reported back in 2011 but, at the time of the report, no network was announced for the project. Today we learn that American Gods will be headed for the Starz cable network — and get this — it’s being executive produced by Bryan Fuller, the genius who brought us Pushing Daisies AND Hannibal! Woot!!! More »
Y'all Ain't Ready
A little while back there were rumors about a theme park based around The Hunger Games books and movies. When I first heard about this, I just kind of furrowed my brows in confusion. Really? A Hunger Games theme park? With, like, fun and stuff? Sounded strange. But now that it’s starting to sound like they are really going forward with it, I can’t help but get excited. I mean, this has to be a cool idea, and I’m sure there’s no real Hunger Games-esque violence with beautiful little Amandla Sternberg‘s dying. So yeah, I’m in. Click inside for more!
