Dune

Zendaya hyped the upcoming Dune trailer in a recent interview with InStyle magazine.

Dune was incredible. I wasn’t in it very much, so when I was watching the trailer, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I called Timothée [Chalamet, who stars in it] and said, ‘Dude! You should be proud.’ It is a big deal to even be a small part of something with such a massive cast. And I love sci-fi stuff too. It’s fun to escape into another world.


Jurassic World: Dominion

Intriguingly, a new set photo reveals Jurassic World: Dominion will return to The Lost World’s Isla Sorna.

X-Men

Speaking during Wizard World’s reunion panel, X-Men: The Animated Series series producer Larry Huston says that there have been talks with Disney about a potential revival—whether it’s a continuation of the classic show or an entirely new animated X-series in its style is unclear:

We’ve had talks, but that’s about it. We’ve made conversation and it’s up to them to make the decision, but we’ve let them know that we’re all available for whatever they want to do in the future.

Stay Tuned

Inexplicably, AMC is developing a TV series based on the 1992 John Ritter/Pam Dawber movie, Stay Tuned, from Fear The Walking Dead co-showrunner/executive producer Ian Goldberg and writer/producer Richard Naing. The original film followed a married couple unwittingly sucked inside their new television set and forced to survive fractured, life-or-death versions of their favorite programs.[Deadline]

Stargirl

In conversation with TV Guide, Brec Bassinger stated today’s “epic” season finale of Stargirl feels like “the last hurrah.”

It’s epic. There’s so many people. There’s that iconic shot in the trailer of the ISA just coming at the JSA. I love that shot so much. When we were filming that, it was so rewarding because it really felt like the last hurrah.

I don’t see how a Stay Tuned TV series is labeled as an “inexplicable” show.

It’s relatively low budget, current events spoof material that’s episodic. It’s like South Park, only not animated, and with the Devil. (Which should NOT be played by Jeffery Jones...Yikes).

You can literally just write spoofs of reality TV shows for five seasons and print advertising money. Think of what they could do with “The Big Bang Theory” or “Breaking Bad” or “Friends”, just make them hell puns and make each a two parter, print cash, go home.
