American Horror Story season 8 title revealed as Apocalypse FX has officially announced the subtitle for the upcoming American Horror Story season 8, confirming it will go by the name “Apocalypse.” Check out the first promo image for the new season below! American Horror Story: Apocalypse will premiere on September 12 on FX. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy has that the new season will be a crossover between season 1 (Murder House) and season 3 (Coven).

It was previously announced most of the returning cast members would come back for the eighth season, including Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman and Billie Lourd, as well as franchise newcomer Joan Collins. It remains to be seen how actors like Paulson or Peters will factor into the crossover, having played two different characters in both seasons. The Emmy, Golden Globe and AFI Award-winning series from co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk aired its seventh season on FX last year. The sixth installment, American Horror Story: Roanoke, recently received four Emmy Award nominations in the hairstyling, makeup and sound editing categories. The American Horror Story franchise has received 28 Emmy nominations and four wins over its previous six seasons. It is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television. American Horror Story was renewed for two more seasons back in January of 2017. The post appeared first on .

Creepshow TV series coming from Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero is reporting that make-up legend and The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero is bringing George A. Romero and Stephen King’s classic 1982 anthology film Creepshow to the small screen via the horror streaming service . Nicotero will direct, executive-produce and supervise creative elements on the Creepshow TV series. Nicotero met his makeup effects mentor Tom Savini during a Pittsburgh set visit to Creepshow, and later did makeup for Romero films such as Day of the Dead, Monkey Shines, Land of the Dead and Diary of the Dead. “’Creepshow’ is a project very close to my heart!” said Nicotero. “It is one of those titles that embraces the true spirit of horror… thrills and chills celebrated in one of its truest art forms, the comic book come to life! I’m honored to continue the tradition in the ‘spirit’ which it was created.” “’Creepshow’ is one of the most beloved and iconic horror anthologies from two masters of the genre, George A. Romero and Stephen King,” Shudder general manager Craig Engler stated. “We’re thrilled to continue their legacy with another master of horror, Greg Nicotero, as we bring a new ‘Creepshow’ TV series exclusively to Shudder members.” The Creepshow TV series will be an anthology of original stories, each made by a different director, with the series scheduled to kickoff on Shudder in 2019. Nicotero’s KNB EFX Group will create the creature and makeup effects on the show, which will be produced by The Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment. The original 1982 Creepshow was directed by George A. Romero from a screenplay by Stephen King that paid tribute to the EC horror comics (ala “Tales From the Crypt”) of the 1950’s. The film featured stars such as Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson and Ed Harris, and grossed $21 million at the box office. It was followed by Creepshow 2 in 1987, directed by the first film’s cinematographer Michael Gornick from a screenplay by Romero, once again based on short stories by King, grossing $14 million. An in-name-only Creepshow 3 was released direct-to-video in 2006 with no participation from Romero or King, which is why the Romero-produced 1990 anthology Tales from the Darkside: The Movie is often referred to by fans as “the REAL ‘Creepshow 3,'” as it also includes a King story originally intended for Creepshow 2.

Carter and Daniels will take over the roles of the troubled couple from Emmy nominated Vanessa Kirby and Matthew Goode. Check out the photos in the gallery below! On her casting as Princess Margaret, Carter previously said, “I’m not sure which I’m more terrified about—doing justice to the real Princess Margaret or following in the shoes of Vanessa Kirby. The only thing I can guarantee is that I’ll be shorter than Vanessa.” Following his announcement, Ben Daniels said, “After being glued to the first two seasons of The Crown I am beyond thrilled to be joining the cast of this incredible piece of television. Snowdon was such a dynamic and complex man, I’m really looking forward to playing him.” The third season of The Crown will see the entire cast aging up. Along with Coleman, Carter, and Daniels, Tobias Menzies will take over for Matt Smith who played Prince Philip during the first two seasons. Prince Charles and Princess Anne will also grow older with Josh O’Connor and Erin Doherty filling in those roles. According to creator Peter Morgan, season three of The Crown will take place during 1964 and 1972 and is expected to cover major events in British history, like Princess Margaret’s affair with Roddy Llewellyn, Margaret Thatcher’s political rise, and the introduction of Camilla Parker Bowles. Both seasons 3 and 4 of the series will be shot back-to-back, with season 3 being released in 2019. The Crown, a Netflix original series, tells the inside story of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. Based on the award-winning play, “The Audience,” the series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) with director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and producer Andy Harries (The Queen).

Said Millar, “My wife Lucy and I are eleven months into our jobs at Netflix and it’s everything we hoped for to the power of ten. To see a movie based on your work every couple of years is incredibly exciting, but to see them all happening at once like this and with talent this high-end is just off the scale. These are writers and directors I’ve privately been sending fan-mail to over the last eighteen months so to be working with them all is just enormously exciting. This really is the greatest creative environment I’ve ever worked in. I can’t wait to switch on my computer every morning.” Original series to be produced include: A multi-generational American superhero epic, Jupiter’s Legacy follows the world’s first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930’s. In present day they are the revered elder guard, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents. Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel’s Daredevil, Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), who recently signed an overall deal with Netflix, will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott also serving as executive producers for the series. DeKnight will also direct the first episode. Multilingual (Spanish/English) series American Jesus follows a twelve-year-old boy who suddenly discovers he’s returned as Jesus Christ. He can turn water into wine, make the crippled walk, and, perhaps, even raise the dead! How will he deal with the destiny to lead the world in a conflict thousands of years in the making? Everardo Gout (Marvel’s Luke Cage, Sacred Lies, Mars, Banshee, Aqui En La Tierra) and Leopoldo Gout (Molly’s Game, Instinct) will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers on the series. Everardo Gout will also direct. Film projects include: Queen Emporia is married to (literally) the worst dictator in the galaxy, King Morax. After escaping his palace with her children, Emporia and her family, must hide from Morax and his army at all costs — even if it takes teleporting from planet to planet to avoid them. Writer Lindsey Beer (Kingkiller Chronicle and the upcoming Sierra Burgess is a Loser for Netflix and Wizards of Once for DreamWorks Animation) is adapting the comic book into a feature film, with Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum (The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, Maleficent) set to produce. In a quiet seaside town, Huck uses his special gifts to do a good deed each day. His neighbors return the favors by keeping his abilities a secret. But when a newcomer alerts the media, a firestorm erupts, sending Huck on an adventure that will change everything. Ted Melfi (Hidden Figures, St. Vincent) is adapting the comic book into a feature film, with Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe set to produce. Set in a brilliant new sci-fi universe, Sharkey is a blue-collar bounty-hunter tracking criminals across the galaxy in his converted, rocket-powered ice-cream truck. Aided and abetted by his ten-year-old partner, he’s out for the biggest bounty of his career. Sharkey the Bounty Hunter will be adapted and published as a Millarworld/Netflix comic next year and writer Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, 21 Jump Street) is writing the screenplay for the feature film.

Greg Berlanti developing Batwoman TV series for The CW is reporting that Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow) is officially working on bringing a Batwoman TV series to The CW. Caroline Dries (Smallville, The Vampire Diaries) is writing the potential pilot based on the DC character. Arrow’s Stephen Amell back in May at the CW upfront presentation that Batwoman would be introduced to The CW’s DCU in this fall’s crossover event. Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, would be the first gay lead character of a live-action superhero show. In Batwoman, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope. The character was first introduced in Detective Comics in 1956 and was reimagined for DC Comics’ New 52 as a Jewish lesbian, the first lesbian superhero for a title DC character. Kane is a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by Batman and chooses to also put her wealth and resources towards a campaign to fight crime as a masked vigilante in her home of Gotham City. Arrow and The Flash have both teased that Gotham City did exist in the Arrow-verse, such as when Amell’s Oliver Queen name-dropped Bruce Wayne during this season of Arrow. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television, with Dries — who will likely consult on behalf of the character during the crossover event — executive producing along with Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and DC’s Geoff Johns. Casting will begin soon to fill the role of Batwoman. The next CW crossover event is set to air in December 2018. If the pilot is picked up, the series could air in 2019. The post appeared first on .
Ryan Murphy’s The Politician cast announced! has officially announced that Zoey Deutch (Set It Up), Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express), Laura Dreyfuss (Glee), and Rahne Jones (Godspell) have been cast as series regulars in Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix original series The Politician. They will be joining Tony Award winner Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hanson) who will star in the comedy. Besides being described as a comedy that features social commentary, not much is known about the new project that was created by Murphy and his longtime collaborators Brad Falchuck and Ian Brennan. However, Deadline reports that the show will center on Platt’s character, Payton, “a wealthy Santa Barbarian” with political aspirations. Each season of The Politician, which has already been given a “two-season straight-to-series order,” will focus on different political races that Payton is involved in. Platt will reportedly have musical numbers in many of the episodes in the Fox 21 TV Studios new project, and Murphy is set to direct the pilot episode. If her deal closes, Streisand will possibly be directing some of the episodes as well. Ian Brennan (Glee co-creator) was brought onto the project by Murphy and Falchuck, and the three will likely share co-creator credits for the series. Murphy’s most recent collaboration with Falchuck is Fox’s new hit drama series, 911, and is the fourth series the pair will have co-created. The Politician is Murphy’s second original series arriving on Netflix, alongside his upcoming project, Ratched, a to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest starring Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) as a younger version of the cruel Nurse Ratched. Since the prolific creator-producer’s deal with 20th Century Fox TV is set to expire later this year, many are wondering where Murphy could end up. With two series from the creator landing on Netflix, it’s safe to assume the streaming site could become a more permanent home once Murphy’s deal with Fox comes to an end.
