As you probably know, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Akiva Goldsman are adapting Stephen King’s epic (and I don’t mean that in the “THIS PARTY’S GONNA BE EPIC!” sense so much as the “this is a sprawling heroic journey traversing centuries and universes” sense) The Dark Tower series into a television series, as well as multiple theatrical releases. It’s a big d, you guys.

I’ve already fantasy-cast the Ka-Tet of 19: Roland, Eddie, Susannah, Jake and Oy. Now to cast some of the allies that float in and out of the gunslingers’ journey. I’ll wrap up my casting call with Round 3: enemies of the ka-tet. Or Foes of the Rose, if you will. (If you need a lesson in Dark Tower 101, check this out.) And don’t worry, I’m trying to keep this post mostly spoiler-free.

Pere Callahan:

The Pere is a former priest who first appeared in King’s ‘Salem’s Lot, resurfacing in the final three Dark Tower books. He is a wise, grave, recovering alcoholic who believes himself to be damned. He has fought vampires, “wolves,” and agents of the Crimson King. He’s an all-around bad-ass.

We'll miss you, Harvey.

 Welcome back to News Day Tuesday, where you might find my reporting to be rather lackadaisical because I’m so sad about Harvey Pekar.  Also: I’m lazy.  

  

The 2010 Comic Con schedule is up! Go here to make yourself physically sick with envy, just like me!

  

I’m not sure how I feel about this All About Evil trailer. Perhaps…warmly? Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Marla's Mexico Bound!

And I am just WAY! TOO! EXCITED! TO BLOG! 

Yes, tomorrow I’m headed south of the border with a group of attractive and promiscuous (kidding!) friends that include: The Good Girl, The Wisecracker, The Rebel, The Engineer and ME. Hopefully it won’t end up like this: 

 

And by that, I mean incredibly boring and stupid. (read the book instead, y’all. It’s fantastic.) 

So I’m going to throw out what little news I can be arsed to gather today as my head is already nose-deep in a book on the beach, hand grasped around a frosty beer and toes wriggling in the sand. Let’s hop to!  Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Fright Night Remake is Sounding Disconcertingly...Decent?!

With a respectable cast of Colin Farrell, Toni Collete and Anton Yelchin, I find myself waving my fist slightly less vigorously at news of the Fright Night remake. This Remake vs. Original is shapin’ up to be a doozy! Thanks to Jerry for the link. (Read my review of the original Fright Night here.)

There’s some seriously rad Tron Legacy concept art at the link!

Comedy Central’s hooking up those of us desperate for some new Futurama scoop with a new Countdown post every weekday until the new premiere on June 24! I actually found myself DISAPPOINTED when I realized that I would be drinking rum punch on a beach in Mexico during the premiere. Sad, Marla. Sad. Continue reading
