sinsiter six

The thought of an Amazing Spider-Man spin-off flick featuring the Sinister Six feels a lot like the Sony/Columbia team is grasping at straws. Sure, they don’t have much to work with in terms of copyrights, but is throwing a six-pack of villains into a movie as the main characters really the best way to go? The big question on everyone’s mind is – what can they even do to make this work? Well, a couple of Amazing Spider-Man producers have now stepped up and attempted to answer that crucial puzzle.

truman show

In perhaps what is one of the most meta television adaptations ever to be greenlit, the 1998 movie The Truman Show will be making its way to the small screen. And while some may lament this decision, saying that the movie was good enough, isn’t this, perhaps more than any other property that Hollywood has decided to adapt to TV, the perfect movie to turn into a series?

12 monkeys

It’s been in development for a while, though until now the 12 Monkeys television reimagining has been without a definite home. SyFy ordered a pilot for the show back in August of 2013, and now, though some may consider this to be one of the worst ideas ever, this Terry Gilliam-inspired series will, whether you like it or not, be making its way to SyFy in full series format.
