Life is Hell: Paramount Greenlights a Movie About Unboxing


Paramount Players has acquired Unboxing, a script from Ice Age: The Meltdown writer Jim Hecht that indie studio has been set to produce as a feature film. Albie Hecht, the former Nickelodeon and HLN boss and now’s chief creative officer, is the producer.

Multiple Series of George RR Martin’s WILD CARDS Coming to Hulu

The Hollywood Reporter:

Hulu may have found its Game of Thrones.

The streamer, sources say, is near a deal to secure rights to Wild Cards, the multiple-book series edited by Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Hulu and Universal Cable Productions reportedly have been looking to bring an adaptation to television in what would be a multiple-series pact.

Sources say Hulu and UCP are on the cusp of opening a writers room that would create a Wild Cards universe for the streamer. The two series will be written by Andrew Miller (The Secret Circle), who has an overall deal with UCP. Melinda Snodgrass, Vince Gerardis and Martin are all on board to executive produce what could be multiple Wild Cards series.

I have no attachment to the property, but I’m just going to make the obvious joke and ask if we should expect both series to air before The Winds of Winter finally hits shelves?

Netflix Goes For Prestige with ROMA

Definitely going to see if it’s playing in a theater near me, but if not, I’ll see it in December on Netflix!
