What We’re Looking At

What We’re Talking About

Reading those ‘new Stargate show’ runes and there are some good omens as Michael Wright, president of MGM Scripted Television, confirms that Amazon is looking at new shows based on classic MGM properties.

Sticking with Stargate, as promised last week we have the first word on The Ark – the new space-set Syfy series from SG-1 co-creator Jonathan Glassner and movie writer/producer Dean Devlin.

A hilarious viral video from Ryan Renolds confirms Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will be back for Deadpool 3 – and it’s firmly in the MCU.

Elsewhere in the MCU, Director Bassam Tariq has dropped out of Marvel’s Blade reboot, and Don Cheadle’s Armor Wars series is being developed as a movie instead.

Taika Waititi’s Time Bandits TV show has named its main cast, including Lisa Kudrow and frequent Waititi collaborator Rachel House.
