They’re making an Archie TV show.
Deadline reports that Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is involved and that if all goes to plan, the show will be called Riverdale and it will air on FOX.
I know my reaction is supposed to be all, “F-ck this, how DARE they mess with Archie” but… I think I might be into it. Apparently Riverdale will be about small town life, the darkness underneath it, and, of course, high school love triangles and rivalries.

Joshua Jackson and Taylor Kitsch were at the GQ Gentleman’s Ball in New York last night. I’m not wrong in saying that you’re into the Pacey+Riggins combination, right? I’m not the only one, right?

The show will air on the BBC in the UK and though it does not yet have a US broadcaster, it won’t have any problem getting picked up on this side of the pond. Full Story
Is everyone on the Chris Pratt train at this point? Is there anyone left uncharmed? Does anyone object to Pratt becoming a Movie Star? As I predicted back in January, Pratt blew up huge this year, and this weekend he capped his breakout year by hosting Saturday Night Live, and this was not just any episode. Full Story

Variety reported today that Rachel McAdams is very close to signing on to True Detective season 2. Her name came up after Elisabeth Moss was rumoured, and then they apparently ended up auditioning several other actors because of a scheduling conflict; she’s also working on a film called Spotlight and they had to negotiate so that she could take on True Detective without giving that up.

One of the earliest rumours about the True Detective Season 2 casting was that Ellen Page and Kate Mara would replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. I was excited about that. I didn’t really care for Season 1 but if they’d set it up like that for Season 2, I was in. Didn’t happen. Full Story
