Still figuring out the best way to approach this, but to be honest, a quick rundown of the weekly news might just be the way to go. We’ll see what develops. At any rate, here’s another short batch of entertainment news for you.
Mentioned last week that there was a Michael Hutchence biopic in the works. Turns out there are two. In addition to the already-mentioned Two Worlds Colliding, another Australian company is a film simply titled Michael based on the late INXS frontman, directed by Richard Lowenstein.
Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are returning to the “world”, for a new Disney Channel series that’s a follow-up on the Boy Meets World series. The series will feature Corey and Topanga as a married couple raising their 13-year-old daughter, Riley; the title is Girl Meets World.
Could a high-profile cinematic bomb become a new series for Syfy? Network President Dave Howe has mentioned they’ve talked a lot about adapting Waterworld, which has brought in a decent number of viewers for them over the years. So far it just sounds like idle talk, but it would be an interesting turn of events for the maligned property.
Because it was made in the 1980s, it’s pretty much inevitable: The Flight of the Navigator is being remade. It is being written and directed by Derek Connelly and Colin Trevorrow, writer and director (respectively) of Safety Not Guaranteed. Trevorrow reportedly has a lot of love for the original film. Though that’s arguably a good sign, I also recall Michael Bay saying he had a lot of love for Transformers….
And that’s it for this week. Let me know in the comments what you think.
