Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Black Panther, Fruitvale Station) and Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, Man of Steel, Nocturnal Animals) are attached to star in Fahrenheit 451, HBO’s movie adaptation of Ray Bradbury‘s 1953 novel of the same name set in a dystopian future where books are illegal and “firemen” are tasked with destroying them.

The movie has been in development at HBO for just over a year now and is set to be directed by Ramin Bahrani, who also writes along with Amir Naderi. Bahrani previously wrote (also with Naderi) and directed 99 Homes, which starred Shannon.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Promo

Earlier this month the premiere date for Game of Thrones season seven was finally revealed, fittingly using a little bit of ice and fire. That was followed by some interesting updates coming out of SXSW 2017 recently.

Now HBO has released a new promo for the seventh season. The promo is titled “Long Walk,” and features three of the big characters—Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and Cersei Lannister—simply taking a little walk to their respective seats to the song “Sit Down” by James. Plus a little bit of teasing, of course.

Andre The Giant Documentary From WWE, Bill Simmons Coming To HBO

WWE, Bill Simmons Making Andre the Giant Doc For HBO

It was always a bit strange that no one had made a movie about the fascinating and sometimes heartbreaking life of wrestling legend and The Princess Bride star Andre the Giant.

In May of last year, we found out that this might change with word that a movie was finally being developed. The biggest challenge with that project, of course, is finding someone to actually play the giant.

Now comes word of another Andre project that’s on the way and doesn’t have to worry about casting someone to play the larger than life figure. It’s been announced that the WWE, HBO Sports, and Bill Simmons are teaming up to make a documentary simply titled Andre the Giant.

In addition to talking about the current status of any possible Game of Thrones prequels or spinoffs, as well as how many episodes season eight will have, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys also offered brief status updates for some of their other projects.

Bloys shared the current status of that Deadwood movie we’ve been hearing about, which fans of the western series have been anxiously awaiting word on. The update doesn’t really offer much, sadly, so don’t excitedly rush below to see it. He also shared where things stand on two more recent shows: True Detective, which had an outstanding debut season but rough second season, leaving the status of season three up in the air; and The Night Of, their crime series which was initially a limited series but due to its success is being considered for new episodes.

See what Bloys had to say about the three projects below.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel Series More Likely Than Spinoff; Season 8 Could Be Longer
The Movie God   |  

Game Of Thrones Season 6.3 young Ned Stark

We’re speeding toward the end of Game of Thrones (*sniffle*), and that’s something we just have to accept (knock it off, you promised yourself you wouldn’t cry). But while the end of the main series begins to come into view, anyone who has been paying attention knows that this is more than likely not the end of our time in Westeros and the surrounding areas.

For a while now we’ve been hearing about the potential for a spinoff series, which would focus on other stories set in other times. Those familiar with author George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” world know there’s an incredible amount of history there, much of which would make for some great TV. HBO’s president of programming Casey Bloys talked about this recently, saying it would more likely be a prequel series than a spinoff. He also revealed that season eight of the current show, the final season, could end up being a little longer than previously believed.

See what he had to say below.

Beware the Slenderman

HBO has announced that another documentary of theirs titled Beware the Slenderman is set to premiere later this month.

The documentary tells the unsettling story of two 12-year-old girls who stabbed a friend of theirs, also 12 years of age, 19 times in the woods of Wisconsin. Their reason for this? To please the Slenderman, a popular internet boogeyman they claim to have feared would harm their families. It covers all sides of the case, which is currently ongoing, mixing footage of interrogations, courtroom testimonies, and more with various Slenderman-inspired content from the internet such as art, games, and videos.
