Tom Hardy’s already starting to tease Venom 2. Amazon is setting up its own zombie series. Billy Campbell talks handing off the jetpack to a new Rocketeer. The Craft cast continues to expand. Plus, what’s to come on Arrow and The Flash, and new pictures from Nancy Drew. To me, my spoilers!
Deadline now reports Donald MacLean, Jr. (Nurses, Workin’ Moms) is the latest to join the cast of The Craft remake in another undisclosed role.
Gunpowder & Sky have reportedly acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the Irish sci-fi thriller, Sea Fever, in which “the crew of a West of Ireland trawler, marooned at sea, struggle for their lives against a growing parasite in their water supply.” The film stars Connie Nielsen, Hermione Corfield, and Dougray Scott.

This Is Our Home
We also have a trailer for This Is Our Home, a new horror film from Uncork’d Entertainment about a couple visited in the middle of the night by a creepy child in red pajamas claiming to be their son. If the trailer is any indication, this somehow leads to an icepick in the skull for dear ol’ dad.

Showrunner Lauren Hissrich revealed to SFX Magazine (via The Playlist) she already has seven seasons of The Witcher planned at Netflix.
I’ve [mapped out stories] for seven seasons. Right now it’s just about, ‘how do you set up stories that really capture audiences for years at a time?’ The worst thing we could do is put all of our energies just into season one, and not be thinking about where these characters can grow to.
