In conversation with Sofa King Cool, Tony Todd described his cameo in the upcoming Candyman remake as an “applause worthy moment.”
Out of the blue I got a phone call from Jordan Peele. We’re still waiting for the contract, but the way he explained it to me was that it’s gonna be applause worthy moments. That’s his words. No matter what happens with that, it’s gonna just put renewed attention on the original.

Amazon Studios has picked up a new “young adult drama series” from Daredevil’s Sarah Streicher and Sex and the City’s Amy B. Harris.

Speaking with Collider, series director Bryce Dallas Howard discussed the VR technology the upcoming Star Wars television series was partially filmed in—a device called “The Volume,” which she described as “almost like a Holodeck.”
John Favreau, of course, is known for pushing emerging technology forward. What he did with Jungle Book, what he is doing now with The Lion King. I mean this is really extraordinary, sort of what is possible because of these projects. There were so many times when I would be like “It’s okay John we can just do it that way” and he’s like “I just want to see if its possible, we just need to see if its possible,” I’m like “okay” and its tested and way more times you find out it is possible and its better.
There was specifically something that we shot in called The Volume, and basically you step into it and the naked eye, you can’t tell that you are surrounded by, basically, LED screens. And you feel like [you’re] wherever the story is taking place. It’s almost like — this is the wrong term to use, especially for this project, but it’s almost like a Holodeck.
