Bryan Fuller Would Like to Do a Silence of the Lambs Miniseries

gallery-ustv-hannibal

If you are like me and a huge fan of TV series Hannibal, then this will come as welcome news, since it been a year since NBC’s Hannibal ended. Showrunner Bryan Fuller has plans to revive the series, using the most infamous story in the Hannibal Lecter arsenal. Fuller told Blumhouse’s “Shock Wave “ podcast this week that he’d like to revive Hannibal to a miniseries to do his version of Silence of the Lambs. “I think the film adaption is the perfect movie, but there are a lot of interesting nook and crannies to explore in a television series,” he says. ” I hope we get to tell the story.”

1600x800-hannibal-lecters-style-secrets-43-jpg-30df48d8

But don’t get to excited just yet my friends, this is just what Fuller would like to do, at this stage, no network has come to the party to bankroll a Hannibal revival yet, but surely someone will come to the party right? At the moment everyone involved is all tied up with other projects, Huge Dancy is playing a cult leader on Hulu’s The Path; Mads Mikkelsen is starring in Marvel, and Star Wars movies and Fuller had to ditch CBS’s new Star Trek series as he was flat out with Starz’s American Gods.

Jody Foster as Clarice Starling 

Fuller believes that a short-run miniseries would work out well for everyone: ideally, for the cast, it would be as a miniseries, here and there. Let’s do 6 to 8 episodes of that and do 6 to 8 episode over here. And do it as an irregular thing.” All we need now is to find the perfect Clarice Starling.. Who do you think would be the perfect Clarice if the miniseries get’s bankrolled? Personally, I think Evan Rachel Wood, would be a perfect fit for Clarice Starling.

Evan Rachel Wood – My pick for Clarice Starling 

Let’s all hope that Fuller’s miniseries will come to fruition however in saying that I would have high expectations for miniseries, being a fan of all the Hannibal Lecter movies and the recent TV Series, they would have to knock it out of the park in a big way.

What We Know So Far About BBC’s Sherlock Season 4

gallery-1482233634-sherlock1

BBC has officially confirmed that Sherlock’s premiere episode ‘The Six Thatcher’s‘ will grace our screens on January 1st, 2017 and according to digiguide.tv it will air at 8:30 pm. I don’t know about you guys but I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the New Year.

The Lying Detective‘ will air the following Sunday January 8th, ( a great way to top off my birthday) and ‘The Final Problem‘ will be airing on January 15th.

gallery-1479952803-15178992-10154196968586234-59409149114693375-n

This season looks to be quite dark, with the trailer starting with more sketchy footage of Moriarty (Andrew Scott). Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) says “something is coming … Maybe it’s Moriarty, maybe it isn’t” Which leads us to believe that Sherlock is not totally against his arch-nemesis somehow returning. In the trailer we also see hospital staff wheeling out a body. Could this just be a red herring to throw us off the scent? I guess we will soon find out. We also see a lot of Toby Jones, who promises “endless fun” however, Sherlock doesn’t seem enthused about the “endless” part. Ms Hudson (Una Stubbs) tells Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) to “get out of my house, you reptile” what has he done this time? Take a look at both trailers below

 

 

The Six Thatcher’s‘ will be loosely based on the Doyle story ‘The Adventure Of The Six Napoleons‘, which features Lestrade and plaster busts of the French military leader being smashed in search of the hidden pearl.

The Lying Detective‘ will be likely based on ‘The Adventure Of The Dying Detective‘, in which Culverton Smith (Tony Jones) the season 4’s villain will feature.

The Final Problem‘ will get its own cinema screening across the UK and Ireland for one night only on Sunday 15th January at 9 pm at participating cinema chains including Cineworld, Odeon, Picture House, Vue, Empire, Omniplex Showcase and Everyman which will coincide with the episode airing on BBC One.

gallery-1479953098-15094363-10154196968661234-6702777414384529367-n

The tone of season 4 is consistently dark and has been described as devastating emotional upheaval focused on Sherlock and John (Martin Freeman) being forced to confront consequences. Moffat told EWWe’re certainly going to put the through the mill.” Toby Jones was announced as the villain for season 4 in May and will be playing Culverton Smith, who in the original story is a vile man who uses his knowledge of deadly tropical illnesses to try to murder Sherlock. To catch him in the act Sherlock must pretend that he is actually infected and slowly dying from the disease, and refuses to allow an increasingly distressed Watson treat him. We will also see another new cast member Sacha Dhawan, who will play a character named AJ.

As a huge Sherlock fan with a collection of all the original Sherlock Adventures and The Murder Rooms – The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes (which I highly recommend watching) I’m looking forward to watching the darkness of season 4 unfold.

Sherlock Season 4 will air January 1st 2017 on BBC One at 8:30pm

The Main Cast

K.J. Apa as Archie Andrews – “An intense, conflicted teen, a boyish high school sophomore who got pumped over the summer working construction and now juggling the interest of several girls, as well as trying to balance his passion for writing and performing music – against the wishes of his father and his football coach.”

Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper – “A sweet, smart, eager-to-please and wholesome girl with a long time crush on her best friend, Archie. She is tired of being the perfect daughter, student, sister, etc., so she turns to her new friend, Veronica, for life advice—much to the consternation of her emotionally brittle mother.”

Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom – “A rich, entitled, and manipulative girl who recently lost her twin brother in a mysterious accident.”

Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy – “A gorgeous, snooty, and ambitious girl who is the lead singer for the popular band Josie and the Pussycats.”

Cody Kearsley as Moose Mason – “Archie’s jock friend.”

Daniel Yang and Major Curda as Dilton Doiley – “The smartest kid in town.”

Irie Hayleau as Valerie Brown – “The songwriter, bassist, and backup vocalist for the popular band Josie and the Pussycats.”

Robin Givens as Sierra McCoy – Mayor of Riverdale and mother of Josie McCoy.

Skeet Ulrich as FP Jones – The leader of the Southside Serpents, a gang of criminals that live and operate on the fringes of Riverdale. He also has a mysterious connection to Jughead.

Jordan Calloway as Chuck Clayton

Tom McBeath as Smithers – The butler for the Lodge family.

riverdale

Members of the cast and the executive producers attended the San Diego Comic-Con where they premiered the first episode “Chapter One: The River’s Edge” Riverdale is a subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, while exploring the surrealism of small town life – the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. From what I have watched it looks really  promising folks, definitely one to make on the calender. You can check out the latest trailers below

 

Riverdale will air on January 26th 2017 on The CW

Shooting wrapped up in mid-April 2016 and we can expect it to grace our screens in the first-half to mid-year, closer to the early side of the mid-year 2017.

Let’s take a look at the synopsis in Mark Frost’s book The Secret History of Twin Peaks (which I have just purchased) as it might provide us with some ever welcome clues

Twenty-five years after Dale Cooper’s investigation of the murder of Laura Palmer, the FBI gets hold of a box it won’t divulge the provenance of. In the box is a huge dossier. A female FBI agent is tasked to analyse all the documents inside, and everything related to the strange town of Twin Peaks. She also has to determine the identity of the person who compiled the dossier. Along the way, she discovers secrets about the lives of the town’s residents, but also investigative reports from Dale Copper, who has since vanished, newspaper clippings, and autopsy report and the other classified information. So what has happened since the death of Laura Palmer and why has an anonymous “archivist’ compiled such a thorough dossier on the town of Twin Peaks and it’s origins?

gallery-1466605810-the-secret-history-of-twin-peaks-cover-mark-frost

We can expect more episodes then the original series had, although the exact number of episodes have not been officially confirmed just yet, however, Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne) told fans at Crypticon Seattle that we can expect an 18-episode season. If you have not seen the original Twin Peaks or it has been a long time since watching it, I would highly recommend you catch up and familiarize yourself ready for Twin Peaks Season 3 in 2017. Check out the latest teaser and trailers below.

We Look at Lucifer Season 2 & What We Know So Far

 

670

Lucifer is currently on its winter break at the moment but there is no shortage of speculation for what the rest of Season 2 will hold. The mid-season episode ended with a huge revelation, that Chloe (Lauren German) isn’t just a normal human, in fact, she is that special that her existence had been orchestrated by god.

Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe have had a special bond from the beginning of the series. Lucifer has never been able to bring out her deepest and darkest desire. Lucifer can make humans admit what they really desire, but this trick doesn’t work on Chloe and this intrigues Lucifer. We have seen so far this season that Lucifer is feeling more for Chloe than ever before. Mother dearest Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) is planning to use this knowledge and is prepared to use Chloe to get what she wants and that is to get everything back.

sunsetgroup4_hires1

**Spoilers Ahead**

The winter teaser for Lucifer’s Season 2 Premiere, shows Chloe’s life could be in danger and based on the spoilers revealed by Idry Mordovich (showrunner), God was the one who granted the couple’s wish for a child because he wanted to put Chloe in Lucifer’s path. Modrovich refers to Chloe as the miracle since she is the result of God’s work and he has designed her to be immune to Lucifer’s charms. Mordovich also says at the end of the Season 2 the last four episodes are going to be completely standalone, and they plan to make them flashback to Lucifer first arriving in LA. But we may also find out how Amenadiel (D. B. Woodside) carried out God’s plans to help a couple conceive Chloe in the standalone episodes. The true identity of Chloe will set the tone for the rest of Season 2, but it is Chloe’s bleeding nose that sends Lucifer into a spin, her bleeding nose could very well put her life in danger as seen in the trailer below  when Chole says “it won’t stop bleeding.” At this stage we still don’t know the exact plan that God has for Chloe but all will be revealed in time.

I’m very interested to see where the rest of Season 2 will take us when it resumes in January.  Pop Culture Pipe Bomb will keep you up to date on all things Lucifer as it comes to hand. Check out the teaser for Lucifer SN02 EP11 -‘Stewardess Interruptus’ below.

Lucifer Season 2 is set to return on FOX, Monday 16th January 2017 at 9 p.m. EST

The record was named after the AT&T communications satellite Telstar, which went into orbit in the July of 1962.

🎙During his first visit to the UK Bob Dylan performed at the Singers Club in London. It was the singer-songwriters second UK gig.

🎙Acker Bilk’s Stranger On The Shore‘ finally dropped off the UK charts after 55 weeks. The record would stand until 1968 when Engelbert Humperdinck’s Release Me‘  stayed for 56 weeks. The current record is held by Frank Sinatra’s My Way‘, which charted for 75 non-consecutive weeks.

Bates Motel Season 5 What We Know So Far

tv-69

It feels like years since my last bates Motel review, but the good news is our pasty white little psychopath will be back very soon there’s talk of it most likely premiering in March 2017.

 What We Know So Far

  • Marion Crane from the original film will be appearing in multiple episodes and Singer Rihana will portray the iconic part
  • Sam Loomis and Lila Crane will also appear in the final season
  • Isabelle McNally will play Madeleine Loomis
  • There will also be a new sheriff in town, Brooke Smith will play the new Sheriff Jane Greene
  • Kenny Johnson returns for the final season.
  • Freddie Highmore is writing a few episodes for season 5 as well directing an episode.

Now from what I can gather Season 5 will be even darker than previous seasons as we watch Norman Bates lose control of his mind and transform from somewhat normal teenager to the most prolific serial killer in the history of movies. Rihanna will appear in multiple episodes, I really  hope the show will re-enact  Marion Crane’s  infamous shower scene, that has become one of the most talked about and iconic moments in the film.

Vera Farmiga will also reprise her dead character, Norma Bates. This season we will see norman the tightly wound psychopath start to unravel, with vision of his dead mother doing chores around the motel, in his warped little mind he believes his mother is very much alive and it has been promised by the producers that will see these bone-chilling moments played out in the entire 10-episodes of Season 5

While I am super excited for Bates Motel to be back, it is also bittersweet with this being the final season, I am-am going to miss my little psycho. To the entire cast and crew, thank you for the last 5 seasons, you are all brilliant in your own right and in my eyes talented legends who brought one of the best and my favourite horror films back to life. My hat goes off to you all. Bates Motel will go down as my favourite horror TV Series of all time.

We will keep you updated on all things Bates Motel as they come to hand, so keep your eyes peeled folks!

SN05 EP10 – ‘Pick Your Poison’

Shinwell (Nelsan Ellis) restores what he thinks is an old chess table for Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) as a thank you, but in fact, it is a piece of evidence from a cold case sherlock is working on. Holme is pissed to find out that Shinwell is still planning on working as an informant and nor do Holmes think Shinwell is up to the task.  A man overdosing on prescription opioids leads Detective Bell (Jon Michael Hill) to discover that Watson’s medical licence is being used to write prescriptions for opioids. Captain Gregson (Adin Quinn) pulls a favour to meet with the DEA Agent in charge of the case however he doesn’t seem convinced that this is a case of identity theft. Leaving Holmes and Watson to find out who has been using Watson’s medical licence. Watson visits the pharmacy where the overdose victim filled his prescription, after looking at the handwritten prescription she notices a clue and figures out that the information was stolen from when she worked at Corona General Hospital. Holmes finds three more doctors that have also had their identities stolen too. Bell is able to to get a photo of the woman using the identities by canvassing the P.O boxes that were registered in the doctor’s names. The Woman is Dr Fanny Krieg, Watson knew of her from when she worked at Corona General. Holmes meets the detective who’s planning on making Shinwell his informant and tells him not too.

Holmes and Watson head to Dr Krieg’s office, but when they arrive the find an empty office. Holmes can smell gunpowder perhaps an hour old, so the pair searches the office and that’s when they find Dr Krieg and another woman’s dead bodies with gun wounds. They discover that the illegal prescriptions pads missing. Leading them to believe that Krieg was the target and Marla Moore, the second victim, was purely collateral damage. While Holmes has Shinwell followed to see how long it take him to figure it out. Bell and Watson interview Mrs Moore’s son and husband, informing them that, they believe that Marla wasn’t the intended target. Marla was the primary caregiver for her son Ethan, who suffers from a non-specific autoimmune disease that doctors have not been able to pin down a firm diagnosis as his symptoms don’t add up to one particular autoimmune disease. Shinwell is less than happy when he finds out what Holmes had him followed, but even after everything Holmes has done for him, Shinwell becomes an informant anyway.

They get a lead from an attempted mugging that occurred 2 years ago. The bullet pulled from Dr Krieg and Mrs Moore matched the bullet pulled from the mugging victim. But it turns out the mugging victim wasn’t really a mugging victim at all, he was attempting to carjack someone and got shot in the process. It turns out that Patrick Moore was the man that shot the carjacker, he didn’t report it to the police when it happened, because he was with the woman he was haveing an affair with, but he swears black and blue that he didn’t kill his estranged wife. Watson pays Ethan a visit to ask him about this father, but the boy also swears black and blue that this father didn’t kill his mother. Patrick’ Moore’s alibi for the murders checks out so it’s back to the drawing board. Watson looks over the phone and email records of Mrs Moore and what she finds cracks the case wide open. It turns out Mrs Moore was the one making her son sick and had been doing so for years. Dr Krieg found out and informed Ethan of what his mother was doing to him.  Ethan, helped by a junkie he met at Dr Krieg’s office, shot and killed both his mother and Dr Krieg. Homles realising that he’s not going to get his way offers to train Shinwell on how to be a good informant for both him and Watson and the Police.
