Hulu’s Castle Rock Locks Down Filming Location

Castle Rock

It looks like Stephen King’s world of “Castle Rock” will be invading Devens, Massachusetts, as well as the surrounding areas, to film its 10-episode run! A story from Lowell Sun states that production crews have already begun building sets and that the show will shoot from August through January of 2018.

David Hartman, director of the Massachusetts Production Coalition, explains, “It’s a really exciting and prestigious project. Landing a TV series for the state is a major win, and an indication of how far the industry has come here. …we have the right infrastructure, crew and talent base, and a stable incentive program to land this big one.

Recent news from Deadline confirms that André Holland (Moonlight, “The Knick,” “American Horror Story: Roanoke”) has been cast as the lead in Hulu’s upcoming psychological horror series. Holland will play Henry, a Death Row attorney with a unique and complicated history in Castle Rock, Maine.

The series, which hails from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, is based on the world created by Stephen King in his various works. It is named after Castle Rock, the fictional town in King’s native Maine that is featured prominently in a number of his novels, novellas, and short stories.

“Manhattan” creator Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason developed the project for television, based on characters and situations created by Stephen King, and serve as writers. They executive produce with Abrams, Ben Stephenson, and Liz Glotzer.

“Castle Rock” reunites Hulu, King, Bad Robot, and Warner Bros., which previously collaborated on event series “11.22.63” based on King’s same-named novel. The series will stream exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu, and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute globally.

Synopsis:
A psychological horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, “Castle Rock” combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. “Castle Rock” is an original suspense/thriller — a reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.

Even Sarah Connor Hated TERMINATOR: GENISYS

Published

on

I think it’s safe to say there aren’t many people out there that were fans of Terminator: Genisys. The film was kind of a major mess and it looks like life on the set was as well.

That film’s new Sarah Connor, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) was recently speaking with Vanity Fair about some other crap and then the conversation swung around to the failed reboot of the Terminator series. And Clarke had some interesting things to say…

First, she told the magazine how she was “relieved” when the film bombed at the box-office so she didn’t have to sign up for further sequels. And then Clarke says she watched frequent Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor “get eaten and chewed up on Terminator. He was not the director I remembered. He didn’t have a good time. No one had a good time.”

Damn girl, tell it like it is! Got to respect the woman for not holding back and sugarcoating things under the blanket of “creative differences.” Hell, maybe Clarke will be able to do the same regarding all the drama surrounding that new Lando: A Star Wars Story movie one day.

Synopsis:

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline. Instead of a scared waitress, Sarah is a skilled fighter and has a Terminator guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger) by her side. Faced with unlikely allies and dangerous new enemies, Reese sets out on an unexpected new mission: reset the future.

Published

Like many of you out there, Idris Elba is one of my favorite actors working today. And it is with this in mind that I’m excited by today’s news that says Elba will be tackling The Hunchback of Notre Dame for Netflix.

THR reports that Elba will not only star in the film, but he will be directing and producing the music described as a “sonic and musical experience” as well. That’s a lot of hats there, Gunslinger.

For those who might be unaware, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is an 1831 novel by Victor Hugo that follows Quasimodo, a hunchback, who falls in love with the Gypsy Esmeralda. Michael Mitnick (The Current War, The Giver) will write the modern-day retelling with Fred Berger (La La Land) and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special) producing along with Elba and Ana Garanito.
