Based on the book by Joe Hill, this follows Ig, played by Daniel Radcliffe, as he goes through a metamorphosis as he is accused of murdering his love interest, Merrin, played by Juno Temple.
As horns sprout from Ig’s head, he notices that he manages to bring out the worst in people as he tries to find out who killed Merrin. Set to be released this October 31, Halloween, it’s definitely worth watching.
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.
