‘Thirtysomething’ Sequel Pilot at ABC Casts Chris Wood

  • Variety
‘Thirtysomething’ Sequel Pilot at ABC Casts Chris Wood
Chris Wood has been cast in a major role in the pilot “Thirtysomething(else)” at ABC, a followup to the popular drama series “Thirtysomething.”

The new project will follow an ensemble of new faces playing the grown-up, 30-something children of the original cast reprised by Ken Olin (Michael Steadman), Mel Harris (Hope Murdoch), Timothy Busfield (Elliot Weston) and Patty Wettig (Nancy Weston).

Variety has confirmed Wood will star as Leo Steadman, Hope and Michael’s son and Janey’s brother. Described as good-looking and charming, Leo is so intent on becoming a “big deal” like his father that he skips steps along the way. His talent and grand ideas are tripped up by his lack of focus and follow-through.

Wood recently appeared on the first two seasons of “Supergirl” as Mon-El. He is also known for playing Kai Parker on fellow CW series “The Vampire Diaries,” a role he recently reprised on the spinoff “Legacies.

James Wan’s New Horror Flick Silvercup Has Cast Its Lead

James Wan is the king of modern horror franchises. From Saw to Insidious to The Conjuring, it seems that practically everything the filmmaker touches turns to cinematic gold, and his upcoming film Silvercup looks like it has the potential to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors.

Wan has already cast frequent collaborator Annabelle Wallis in the movie and now, he’s reportedly selected George Young to star alongside her as the male lead. This could be a breakout role for the English actor, too, who hasn’t featured in anything major to this point in his career.

The 39-year-old endeared himself to international audiences in HBO Asia’s 2014 miniseries Grace and recently appeared in the first two parts of an indie film series entitled A Bread Factory. American viewers, meanwhile, may recognize him from The CW’s short-lived drama Containment.

Malignant Release Date, Cast and Details for James Wan Horror Movie

David Crow Kayti Burt Joseph Baxter Oct 23, 2019

James Wan will direct New Line horror movie Malignant before returning to helm Aquaman 2.

James Wan is at an interesting place in his career. While he proved his action movie bonafides several years ago with the stressful production of Furious 7, it was last year that he managed to successfully launch a new superhero franchise with a wild premise and little in the way of a popular shared universe to fall back on. Nevertheless, Aquaman was gonzo, bubblegum fun that grossed about $1.2 billion at the box office. So, in theory, he could do anything he’d want next. Which makes news that he’s returning to horror so intriguing.

Malignant is the official title of Wan's hush-hush horror film, which will star Annabelle Wallis and George Young. The initial announcement of the project revealed that Wan was locked in to direct a

Watch the Official Alien Short Film Specimen

In anticipation of the 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott's Alien, last year Fox and Tongal opened submissions for original pitches set in the Alien universe.

‘Alien’ 40th Anniversary Short Films Expand the Xenomorph Mythos With Mixed Results

‘Alien’ 40th Anniversary Short Films Expand the Xenomorph Mythos With Mixed Results
Alien” has evolved more than anyone could have imagined when Ridley Scott first introduced the xenomorph in 1979, from sequels and comic books to video games and high-school plays. Its latest mutation comes as part of the sci-fi classic’s 40th anniversary, which 20th Century Fox — a scrappy, up-and-coming studio that recently hit it big when it was acquired by Disney — is celebrating with the release of six short films: “Containment,” “Specimen,” “Night Shift,” “Ore,” “Harvest,” and “Alone.”

These works range in quality and scope, as all such projects do, but have in common a reverence to their otherworldly source material that both helps and hinders their collective effort to expand the “Alien” mythos. Without knowing what, if any, restrictions were placed on the filmmakers by Fox (who selected these six stories from more than 550 pitches), it’s difficult not to be disappointed that more of them don’t endeavor to truly forge new territory.

It's Facehugger Vs. Dog in New Alien: Specimen Short

It's Facehugger Vs. Dog in New Alien: Specimen Short
A brand new official Alien short has been released online. The franchise is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and, while there is no full-length feature being released, which would be ideal, 20th Century Fox has been doing plenty to help honor the occasion. We recently learned that they're releasing a series of six shorts set within the Alien universe and the second installment, Alien: Specimen, has been officially unleashed. It should delight fans of the series who are desperate for some facehugger action.

This short comes from director Kelsey Taylor. Aesthetically, this looks very much in line with the early movies in the franchise. Low-tech yet detailed. We also get a look at some elements that haven't really been explored in the movies before. What are greenhouses like in space? What's it like when someone is working a boring night shift all alone in space? Do facehuggers and dogs get along?
