I woke up to three very brief stories that should probably be squeezed into a single report, starting with the unfortunate MPAA rating for David R. Ellis’ Shark Night 3D. Relativity’s thriller arriving in theaters September 2 was rated PG-13 “for violence and terror, disturbing images, sexual references, partial nudity, language and thematic material.” That’s a bummer considering how much blood and violence I was expecting to see. Maybe Ellis ran into problems with the “red” vanishing in the water? Hmmmmmm…..
I swore off the San Diego Comic-Con and figured there wasn’t a single thing that could make me jealous… I was wrong. Deadline is reporting that attendees will be the first ever to see the pilot episode of Locke & Key, the Mark Romanek-directed pilot presentation that was passed on by Fox. The “Locke & Key” session will be held on July 22 at 10:30 AM and will include a screening of the pilot, followed by a panel discussion featuring Hill, Rodriguez, the pilot’s writer/executive producer Josh Friedman and executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. A+ for showing it, F- for passing….
Lastly, “True Blood” creator Alan Ball tells THR that HBO’s crazy popular vampire/werewolf drama may already be on its last leg: “Right now I’m in the middle of negotiating for a fifth season,” explained Ball. “I don’t know if I have any left in me after that. We’ll see.” Maybe big numbers for this Sunday’s premiere will change his mind… or maybe this is a negotiating tactic to get them to pay more? I’ll go with the latter.
