What? Duke Nukem Forever finally coming out isn’t enough news for you today? Okay, okay… here are some more bites and pieces from Hollywood.
- It looks like ABC’s superhero drama No Ordinary Family will not live to fight another season. In addition to the fact that its ratings keep getting worse, the show’s two leads Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz have signed up for new pilots with CBS (a sit com for Chiklis and a supernatural drama for Benz. Now, if ABC decides to renew the show for a second season, both are contracted for it, but it is highly unlikely that they’d shoot new pilots if there was any chance of No Ordinary Family surviving.
- It looks like Men in Black III got another damaging blow as its constant delays have caused them to lose Alec Baldwin from the cast of the sci-fi sequel. The production has been struggling, having started without a finished script and got delayed to work out various story problems. Barry Sonnenfeld returned to helm the film with Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Rip Torn reprising their roles from the earlier movies. Joining them are Josh Brolin as a younger version of Jones’ Agent K, along with Emma Thompson, Alice Eve, and Jemaine Clement. I hope they get things back on track and give us a quality follow up to the original MIB, because the second one is best left forgotten.
- Dark Horse will be releasing the first issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 in August, starting with Angel’s new ongoing, then following it in September with Buffy’s new ongoing. Both series will last for 25 issues that are being released over two years. To add to the awesomeness, Dark Horse also revealed that they will be doing a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10. This comes after a long time where Joss had said that season 9 would be the last. Season 9 writers are expected to be revealed at Wonder Con and I can’t wait to see who will be apart of the new season.
