Looks like Summer Glau is never far from our TV screens…according to Deadline she will now have a recurring role in CW’s Arrow…which will further cement my feeling of how similar it is to The Cape – which Summer also starred in…
Summer has also had recurring roles in Dollhouse, The Unit, The 4400 and Alphas, following starring roles in Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and is a bit of a genre favorite, even playing herself in an episode of The Big Bang Theory.
It looks like a new Terminator movie will finally get made, with the man who was central to the franchise set to return.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been attached to the project for a while, and Megan Ellison (daughter of Oracle founder and CEO Larry Ellison) recently purchased the right to the franchise. Now Megan and brother David have agreed to each put up one third of the costs of a new movie, with Paramount picking up the final third.
However, the film still doesn’t have a director yet, with Fast and Furious 6‘s Justin Lin passing on a script being developed by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Dracula 2000), but plans are to start filming in January.
Fancy the idea of taking up arms against some of your favorite heroes from SF film and television? Or fancy a blaster fight with a squad of Stormtroopers led by General Motti? (Hey, at least that last one should be easy…we know how well Stormtroopers shoot!)
Well, you might have your chance at Comicpalooza, in Houston May 25-27!
“The next best thing to being a sci-fi or action hero has to be shooting a sci-fi or action hero with a gun. Or maybe being shot by one,” says John Simons, founder and Chairman of Comicpalooza, the Texas International Comic Con. At least that’s the premise that led to the Badass Celebrity Smackdown, in which fans attending Comicpalooza May 25-27 will get their chance to pit themselves against stars of some of the biggest sci-fi and action franchises in Hollywood while helping US veterans at the same time.
