Lets jump right in.

She’ll be back? Hopefully. The latest rumor for the proposed Terminator 5 (you know, the one Universal is looking to make with Arnold and Fast Five director Justin Lin) is that Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) might be back from the grave. Or more accurately, never died in the first place as Lin is looking to explore the idea of the multiple timelines. With how far Terminator 3 and 4 strayed from what was originally established, it would make perfect sense to explore the idea of the fractured timeline.

In the about time department, the Sin City 2 script is undergoing some rewrites by William Monahan in preparation for the film to finally be shot. The original was shot back in 2005 and it is really weird that it has taken more than 6 years for the sequel to get closer to being made. The original was a spot on adaptation of the popular graphic novel, that was not only a hit creatively, but found a decent sized audience.

Lots of movement on the Two and a Half Men front, with Judy Greer cast as Ashton Kutcher’s ex-wife and the announcement of Courtney Thorne-Smith returning as Lyndsey McElroy, Jon Cryer’s Alan’s ex-love interest. It will be interesting to see how all of the changes that started with Charlie Sheen being fired will effect the show’s ninth season.

Don’t forget, there are some pretty awesome websites that let you watch Free TV Online.

Chuckvs Freddy

Chuck has had a non-stop revolving door of pretty cool guest stars this season, including Dolph Lundgren, Linda Hamilton, the Old Spice guy, Lou Ferrigno, Olivia Munn, Eric roberts, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Nicole Richie, but has he finally met his match with Robert Englund, aka Freddy Kruger? In tonight’s all new Halloween themed episode, Englund takes on the role of Dr. Stanley Wheelwright, a (mad) scientist that has created a nightmare-inducing toxin. Can Chuck and the gang stop him from releasing it? Or even worse, selling it to someone even worse who could mass produce it and use it as a weapon?  Linda Hamilton returns tonight as Chuck’s mom and hopefully we will get some information on where she has been and if she is as evil as she appears to be. I’m hoping not. Chuck airs at 8pm on NBC.

chuck new seasonWe have some CHUCKing awesome news today, our favorite geek turned spy series has not only gotten its 4th season extended from 13 episodes to a full season order, but instead of the suspected 9 episodes, the series got picked up for an additional 11 episodes! That makes the 4th season of Chuck 24 episodes total!

The show, which has been on a creative high for the past two seasons, added Linda Hamilton of Terminator fame as Chuck’s long lost mother.  Chuck and the gang have been using all of their resources to locate her, thinking that she has been a prisoner of the season’s new big bad. As we found out yesterday, she may not be a prisoner after all, but might just be the big bad they are looking for.

If you haven’t seen yesterday’s episode yet, stop what you are doing and check it out. (spoiler alert) It ended with a cliffhanger of Chuck getting a call from his mother.  Next week’s episode is Halloween themed and features horror icon and the original Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund as Dr. Stanley Wheelwright, an evil scientist that wants to release a nightmare-inducing toxin on the public.   If you have been busy and missed the past few episodes of the series, you can head over to the show’s 141tv profile to check out the last 4 episodes.

Entertainment News from The Pit, Movies, TV, Games, Awesome

The fall television season is in full swing as the summer movie season is officially over. Surprisingly we still had a decent weekend of films with Ben Affleck’s The Town opening to number 1 with the Emma Stone starer Easy A in a close second. What else is going on in the world of entertainment?

  • Horror legend Wes Craven has been giving away a ton of signed My Soul to Take posters via his Twitter. The flick was written and directed by Craven and focuses on a small town where a serial killer returns and stalks seven children who share his birthday. Sounds like a nice old school slasher to me. Welcome back Mr. Craven.
  • Speaking of Chuck, yesterday was the premiere! If you missed it go watch when it is posted online!!! The premiere guest starred Linda Hamilton and Dolph Lundgren… Yeah, it was awesome. Chuck airs on NBC at 8pm.
  • Marvel Comics have announced their latest Dark Tower series, Dark Tower: The Gunslinger – The Little Sisters Of Eluria.  The new series will be written by Robin Furth and Peter David with art by Luke Ross.  The official description of the new title: “After being terribly wounded from a vicious battle with a band of slow mutants, Roland Deschain is taken in by a group of hideous creatures known as the Little Sisters of Eluria and must battle. Roland’s journey has been long and treacherous and now there is nothing he can do to fend off the Little Sisters and whatever they have in store for him. Will the Gunslinger live to see the light of day?

TV Flipped Column with PJ Flip

Just wanted to make a quick article with some of the awesome TV casting news from the past week. More news soon…

  • Linda Hamilton, aka Sarah Connor, has been cast as Chuck’s mother on Chuck.
  • James Marsters will return as Braniac on the 200th episode of Smallville. Also on Smallville, Clark Kent will be getting a new partner at the Daily Planet, Cat Grant.
  • Joe Manganiello, werewolf Alcide, has been promoted to be a series regular on True Blood.
  • Alfred Molina has joined the cast of Law & Order: Los Angeles as Deputy DA Morales. Skeet Ulrich is the only other major character to be cast on the show.
  • SyFy shows Eureka and Warehouse 13 to have two cross over shows later this season. Claudia, Allison Scagliotti, will appear in an episode of Eureka and Fargo, Neil Grayston, will appear in an episode of Warehouse 13.

Pause.com just brought a smile to my face by the sheer possibility that Linda Hamilton might have signed on to appear in all three films of McG’s Terminator trilogy.

The site claims that a studio source confirmed Hamilton’s involvement, but one of Hamilton’s reps said that they hadn’t heard about this, but that Linda would be interested in it. You can read the original report here.

With James Cameron and Arnold both giving their blessing to the film (and rumors that Arnold might even be making a voice cameo in the film), I can picture this rumor planning out to be true. Hamilton decided to not return in Terminator 3 because she did not like the script and the fact that Cameron wasn’t happy about the picture. With Bale citing the script as the main reason that he signed on to a trilogy, we have to believe that it’s good. Plus, it has been years since Hamilton had a juicy role, and there is no better part bring her back into the spotlight than the one that made her famous in the first place.

Man, I hope this rumor pans out. And I still hope that they change the name from Terminator Salvation.
