Sony has released the first teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated new film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

SyFy just got a little bit more…Science Fictiony. Anyways, remember that great, underrated Terry Gilliam movie 12 Monkeys? If not, go watch it, it’s pretty darn fantastic. If so, guess what? They want to make it a series and according to the Hollywood Reporter, SyFy has officially ordered a pilot for the movie turned television show to see if they can make it happen on the cable channel.
SyFy was actually initially thinking of throwing all the eggs into one basket and ordering the whole season but decided to see how the pilot works out first. The project initially was being developed about a month ago and apparently the pilot treatment came out so well that production will be ramping up to start filming by November. Behind it are producers Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, who helped produce the original film, as they made the pitch to the cable network and will be the executive producers behind the pilot. Nikita and Terra Nova writers Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett are writing the hour long pilot script as well.
SyFy has been jumping all over the original scripted series train after the success of the risky Defiance series. They also have pilot orders for High Noon from Pushing Daisies’ Bryan Fuller, Rewind and a series order for Helix, which will all launch in 2014. No word on the involvement from original collaborators and actors Terry Gilliam, Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt but considering it’s television, it’s very unlikely they they will be involved in a creative or acting capacity. No word either on what the plot would be but it’s an interesting concept and echoing one Brian Kronner in saying that the best television series are cable shows, the potential is definitely there for something riveting and thought provoking. Yes, even from the network that brought you Sharknado. Which was awesome so yes, the bar is high for 12 Monkeys.
The first trailer for 12 Years a Slave has arrived and let’s just say, this movie looks amazing.
Chiwetel Ejiofor, who has been at the top of many people’s list for Black Panther (speaking of, have you checked out our Justice League Casting Couch?), stars as Solomon Northrup. Based on his own memoirs of the same name, the film follows Northrup’s journey from being a freed man living in New York to being tricked by a fake job offer and sold into slavery.
If that’s not the crappiest thing that could happen to a person, I don’t know what is.
Joining Ejiofor is a star-studded cast including Brad Pitt, Alfre Woodard, Michael K. Williams (Chalky White in Boardwalk Empire), Paul Giamatti, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, and Michael Fassbender.
12 Years a Slave marks the third time Michael Fassbender and director Steve McQueen have worked together. McQueen has been nominated and won many awards for his previous work but with this cast combined with a premiere date of December 26th, it appears as McQueen and company might be gunning for the big prize come Oscar time.
