Here are five sizzle reels direct from Comic-Con for the Syfy series Haven, Warehouse 13, Defiance, Being Human and Helix!
Deadline reports that Timur Bekmambetov, who directed Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, will develop his own idea for a new re-imagining of the Wizard of Oz story as a mini-series for Syfy. Called Warriors Of Oz, a fantasy-action mini in which “a warrior from present day Earth is transported to a post-apocalyptic future Oz where he must team up with three other warriors, Heartless, Brainless, and Coward, in order to defeat the evil Wizard who has enslaved the land.”
Syfy has dipped into that pool before, having produced 2007’s Tin Man starring Zooey Deschanel.
The Zygons won’t be the only baddies in town…
The BBC did announce that the Daleks, who many thought the absence of which from the 50th Anniversary special episode would be sacrilege, will in fact play a part in the episode. According to Steven Moffat, “The Doctor once said that you can judge a man by the quality of his enemies, so it’s fitting that for this very special episode, he should facing the greatest enemies of all.”
Expect a trailer soon – a teaser was shown at Comic-Con, but the BBC doesn’t want it released yet. The 50th Anniversary episode airs November 23rd.
