Syfy finally say’s Shut up Wesley as it was announced today the series described as “Talk Soup for geeks” The Wil Wheaton Project won’t be back for a second season. Wheaton broke the news of the cancellation via a post on WilWheaton.net, in which the Star Trek: The Next Generation alum/Big Bang Theory guest star writes that the network’s executives “just didn’t think we had enough viewers to justify more episodes.” A Syfy rep confirmed today that the series is cancelled. Wheaton goes on to state that the series garnered ratings “on par with The Soup” but a lack of promotion and the show’s summer debut — when TV viewership is down overall — likely were among the factors in Syfy’s decision. Still, the Wheaton maintains that he is “okay” with the state of affairs and thanks everyone who watched the show. He also made a final plea to fans: “Oh, and let me just stop this before it starts: We nerds have a penchant for letter-writing campaigns and stuff to try and save shows we like. Please don’t do that here. It’s not going to happen, and we should instead put that energy into something else, like getting #butts to trend.” Did you really expect Wil to tell the truth and say the show sucked? That he has the hosting talent of a potted plant? Now Syfy can run some ShamWow commercials in its place and get 10 times the ratings. Goodbye and shut the hell up Wesley!
Warner Brothers is retaining Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates as the studio moves ahead with the film adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. Yates is in talks to direct the first installment of a planned trilogy based on author J.K. Rowling’s spin-off, which takes place decades prior to the events of the Harry Potter books. Fantastic Beasts takes its name from a Hogwarts textbook that appears on a reading list in the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, and will boast magical creatures and characters from the Potter mythology including the textbook’s fictitious author, Newt Scamander. Warner Brothers has already set a November 18, 2016 date for the film which Rowling will make her screenwriting debut on.
I suppose it was only my wishful thinking that had me believing we had finally seen the last of the Potter world. I guess J.K. Rowling is hurting for money or needs to get back in the spotlight. I wish she would keep to her word and be done with the Potter world once and for all.
Hollywood dads unite! Johnny Depp and his daughter Lily-Rose Depp are starring in Kevin Smith’s horror-comedy “Yoga Hosers,” which begins shooting this week. This film is the second installment in Smith’s True North Trilogy about Canadian myths and culture following up next month’s Tusk.
Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith is also starring in the second installment of Smith’s True North Trilogy. The famous daughters will play 15-year-old yoga-obsessed girls both named Colleen.
The action-adventure follows the Colleens as they fight an ancient evil threatening to ruin their school party; they battle the baddie alongside a legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe (Depp).
The entire “Tusk” cast is returning for “Yoga Hosers,” including Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach and Harley Morenstein. New cast members include Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Jason Mewes.
Fugitive mixed-martial-arts fighter War Machine, who’s been on the run for allegedly brutally beating ex-girlfriend Christy Mack last Friday, has at long last been arrested by police. The fighter, whose birth name is Jonathan Koppenhaver, was taken into custody without incident at the Extended Stay America hotel in Simi Valley, California at about 2:30 p.m., a spokeswoman for the Marshal’s Service said. He was reportedly in possession of "a small amount of cash and a pizza." Police also stated that they visited War Machine’s home in San Diego and confiscated his exotic pet snakes.
He’s being held without bond on a fugitive from justice federal charge in the Ventura County Jail, according to officials.
Koppenhaver said he was innocent on Twitter: "The cops will never give me fair play, never believe me. Still deciding what to do but at the end of the day it’s all just heart breaking.”
On Tuesday, authorities issued a warrant for Koppenhaver’s arrest, charging him with several counts of battery, assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes.
Hopefully, justice will be served and Christy Mack makes a full recovery.
