Joel Silver seems to have two labors of love – big screen adaptations of Wonder Woman and Logan’s Run. We know the latest history of Wonder Woman, but that doesn’t mean someone doesn’t think they can do it right. In steps Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn – who thinks he might get the chance – “if I get Logan’s Run right.”
Refn was named director of the long-stuck project back in February, with Drive star Ryan Gosling attached as the lead.
Cool projects never die, they just never get made…seems that director Ron Howard still has not given up hope on his The Dark Tower project, which Universal scrapped last month. According what producer Brian Grazer (Howard’s business partner in Imagine Entertainment) told the New York Post, Howard is shopping around for external financing, and they may plan to separate the TV series as separate deals, possibly distributing through alternative media such as Netflix. However, any production won’t begin until next year now, as Howard already has another project, the Formula One themed Rush, on his plate.
It’s another “Powerful Mondays” lineup next Monday, with all new episodes of Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Alphas. And don’t forget – Summer Glau guest stars on Alphas!
This week in Eureka, Holly and Fargo appear to be on the surface of another planet. They try to keep things humorous while getting the job done, but their mission backfires and they become engulfed in smoke. Holly’s suit rapidly loses pressure and Fargo tells her she simply needs to recalculate. Be sure to watch the clip and tune in at 8/7c to see if Holly can find a way to save herself, or if someone else can step in.
