There’s some mild spoilers in new production stills from the hit CW series.
HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY
IF Magazine talked to actor Doug Jones about coming back to Abe Sapien. “You are going to get to know him on so many different levels this time,” Jones said. “In the first movie he was lovely, but he was kind one-dimensional and was a helper and part of the team, but he helped push everyone else’s storyline forward. He’s got a storyline of his own this time, which is so full. I think as an audience you find yourself laughing and crying and shrieking and phewing as you watch Abe this time. This time he’s much more buddy buddy with the BPRD team, especially with Hellboy and the brother relationship is much more cemented. It’s funny too, Guillermo wrote such a funny script with some great beautiful moments. The action is superb and the humor is superb.”
TRAILER PARK OF TERROR
According to Variety, “Another feature [programming director Sarah] Diamond predicts could break out is ‘Trailer Park of Terror.’ ‘It’s one of our Twilight films, and I think it’s going to be a big hit.'” The project is based on the Imperium comics series of the same name.
Yes, things proved quickly incorrect last time, but El Mayimbe sent us another email about casting rumors that indicate three actors are finalists to play Duke in the toy-based movie: Chris Evans (“Fantastic Four”), Matthew Fox (“Lost”) and Channing Tatum (uh … “She’s The Man”).
CBR has screen captures from the new Sega game based on the movie, showing some images very similar to what’ll be seen on the silver screen.

WGA STRIKE WATCH: DAY SEVENTY-FIVE
Brace yourselves — The Directors Guild of America has already struck a deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (here’s the DGA’s official announcement and the studios’ site has been updated too). Writers Blog has a fact sheet about the deal, and some WGA strike captains (none of whom are lawyers, admittedly) took a first glance at the terms. Could this new deal end the strike as some have predicted for months? The WGA have always known the DGA would negotiate and have a less adversarial encounter with the AMPTP, and in many medium they’ve said “we don’t have to take it” in reference to any deal made by the DGA.
Also worth noting (and that’s just what happened at United Hollywood), the AMPTP invited the WGA back to the table for “informal discussions similar to the productive process that led us to a deal with the DGA.” So there’s motion on all fronts.
Shame Nikki Finke chose this week to take off …
THAT’S A WRAP
The writer of this column turns 35 on Sunday, ruining no fewer than seventeen bets that he’d have already gone down in a hail of gunfire. Who knew? There will be a celebratory late night breakfast in Lomita, CA tonight (technically after 2AM tomorrow morning). Right, then.
We can’t do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos — they’re all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, “What do you mean your sister’s dating somebody who works for Miles Millar?” The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web’s rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we’ve got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and [tagline redacted until the WGA strike is resolved].
