Messiah: Netflix orders new faith-based series

David Crow Kirsten Howard Nov 17, 2017

At Netflix, Messiah will chronicle the world's reaction to a man thousands call "the Messiah" emerging from the Middle East...

The Word of God is good. It is also very lucrative. Ever since the days of silent films, the Bible has been big business in Hollywood. And as we travel ever further into 'peak television’s' new era of streaming, that one constant remains. However, the officially greenlit series Messiah, at least on its premise, promises to be a challenging new take on faith-based content.

First announced as in-development last spring, Netflix officially ordered a 10-episode series of Messiah yesterday, which is likely to be a controversial and highly publicised series when it eventually drops. Created by Michael Petroni, who has developed the project with producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, the series looks to provocatively consider the emergence (or reemergence?) of a figure claiming

Kit Harington's New TV Show Is as Gory as Game of Thrones

Kit Harington's New TV Show Is as Gory as Game of Thrones
If you thought Kit Harington's new show Gunpowder was going to be a typical BBC drama - a lavish historical adaptation with plenty of big names and beautiful cinematography - prepare to be shocked. Sure, the UK the series definitely packs a punch when it comes to star power, with Harington joined by stars like Liv Tyler and Mark Gatiss. The setting is definitely atmospheric, too, but it's also unforgiving when it comes to showing the realities of life in England in the 17th century. Following in the footsteps of shows like Taboo and Peaky Blinders, it heads into seriously dark territory. In the first episode alone, viewers witness brutal executions played out in their full gory glory, including one particularly gruesome moment when a young priest is hung, drawn, and quartered. The Guardian describes the show as "Game of Thrones minus dragons plus history", and it's true that thematically and visually,

Gunpowder episode 1 review

Aliya Whiteley Oct 21, 2017

There's a touch of Hammer Horror about the BBC's new, macabre gunpowder plot three-parter starring Game Of Thrones' Kit Harington...

This review contains spoilers.

My early knowledge about the Gunpowder Plot came from a Ladybird book in their ‘Adventure from History’ series. It went into a good amount of detail about certain elements such as the people behind the plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament and how they were caught. It was an intriguing business, but it wasn’t until many years later that I made an emotional connection to it through Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta. Desperation, fear, and persecution seeped into the mix. Every year, on the fifth of November, I think

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Legacy (1978)

  • DailyDead
The Creative Death sub-sub-genre took flight in the ‘70s with The Omen (1976), as that little imp Damien (and his dad) dispatched the cast in different macabre and entertaining ways. (Variety is the spice, and all that.) The ’78 sequel continued the burgeoning tradition, leading us up to The Legacy (1978) - a film that takes its own stab at variety by marrying The Old Dark House to The Dark Underlord and delivering a fun, wicked (albeit goofy) little offspring.

Released in September in the U.K. (and the following September stateside) by Columbia-emi-Warner (and Universal in the U.S.), The Legacy brought in $11 million against its $2.5 million budget, making it a commercial if not critical success. That this British/American co-production manages to combine their unique aesthetics into something coherent is and of itself some kind of horror miracle.

Channel 4 rumoured to be developing V for Vendetta TV series

A new rumour is claiming that U.K. broadcast station Channel 4 is developing a TV adaptation of V for Vendetta.

The report comes by the way of Bleeding Cool who claims to have confirmed with industry sources that the Alan Moore and David Lloyd comic book V for Vendetta is indeed in the process of being translated for the small screen.

While this isn’t at all official, Channel 4 would actually seem like an appropriate fit for the venture, considering the network has been the original broadcaster for such shows as Black Mirror and, more recently, Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams.

This isn’t the first time a screen adaptation of V for Vendetta has been attempted of course, with the Wachowskis having written a feature film version starring Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman back in 2005.

This TV adaptation is just a rumour of course at this stage,

V For Vendetta series reportedly in the works at Channel 4

Kirsten Howard Oct 5, 2017

Rumour has it that Channel 4 are set to adapt Alan Moore and David Lloyd's comic V For Vendetta for the small screen...

In a move likely to set Alan Moore's teeth on edge for yet another year, news that a Watchmen TV series is in development at HBO under the pen of Lost's Damon Lindelof has been joined by a scoop from Bleeding Cool that a V For Vendetta TV show is on the way from Channel 4.

V For Vendetta Is Reportedly Being Adapted For TV

Ironically for a writer who notoriously hates having his work adapted, the comics of Alan Moore just keep being brought to the screen. Sometimes they’re awful (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), sometimes they’re middling (Constantine), but on occasion they’re just plain awesome, like 2006’s V For Vendetta.

11 years since the smart, politically-aware dystopian story was last put to film, news has arrived that suggests it could be making its way to the screen again, this time on TV. According to Bleeding Cool, their industry sources have informed them that British network Channel 4 are working on a new TV series based on Moore’s original comic.

That’s about all we know for now, but it seems that the television version would likely hue closer to the graphic novel than the film, which was largely faithful but made some significant changes here and there. For one, it
