Don’t call it a comeback — here’s the promo for Season Three, “Villains” …
Meanwhile, actress Brea Grant drops some spoilers in an article from the Associated Press, discussing some fun she has with Hiro.
According to Variety, Platinum Studios, Top Cow Productions and Arclight Films will team on a live-action feature adaptation of the Marc Silvestri creation. “This property is the cornerstone of our upcoming production and sales slate,” said Arclight CEO Gary Hamilton. “We hope to be able to start production in September.” Locations are being scouted in Australia.
We got an interesting email from El Mayimbe pointing out a new rumor at Latino Review, claiming that Brad Pitt’s name has been tossed around as playing the Odinson.
Brace yourself for spoilers, because you’ll find them in the new production stills for the season finale “Arctic” (three sets of preview pics as well) and in a description of screen tests for new characters, all courtesy of Kryptonsite.
Or perhaps you’d like a director’s cut clip available on YouTube …
Moviehole caught up with actress Rachael Taylor, who said she would not be back for the sequel. “I wasn’t contracted for a sequel anyway,” she said, “but I also think it would be pretty ridiculous for my character just to show up and say ‘We’ve got some more computers to play with!’ More importantly, I don’t think I’d wanna do it to be honest, and not for any particular reason other than the fact that I’ve done it. I’m just drawn to doing different things. It was the same when I went to the US, I didn’t want to do TV, because I’d done it. I want to be able to mix it up all the time.” So take that, residual checks!
