Borderlands

Janina Gavankar (True Blood and countless video game voices) has joined the cast of Eli Roth’s Borderlands as a brand-new character named Commander Knoxx, the daughter of Crimson Lance leader General Knoxx, from the original game’s DLC expansion The Secret Armory of General Knoxx.


Black Adam

In a recent Instagram story captured by Comic Book, actress Sarah Shahi stated she’s “very proud to represent [her] fellow middle eastern brothers and sisters as Adrianna” with a lightning bolt emoji, confirming she is indeed playing Adrianna “Isis” Tomaz.


Dune 2

Screenwriter Eric Roth revealed to Collider he’s written a treatment for the second half of Dune but doesn’t believe he’ll write the screenplay.

I [wrote] a treatment to show the estate what we could do with the second half, but I’ve got to tell you that I think I’ve done as much as I can do. I also have other things I want to do. I’m 76 years old, and these things obviously take a long time to do. And so I have a few others I’m excited about. And hopefully people love Dune so much that they do want to have a second part, and I’m sure Denis would do amazing version of that.

Star Trek: Picard

Meanwhile, Akiva Goldsman confirmed Jean-Luc Picard’s new android body is barely mentioned in season two.

It doesn’t. We did fundamentally try to address that at the end of 10. He’s not Super Picard. We reset this congenital problem he lived with since Next Gen and gave him the opportunity for rebirth, but it’s nothing more than a record as he might have been where he not here.

Star Trek: Picard

Meanwhile, Akiva Goldsman confirmed Jean-Luc Picard’s new android body is barely mentioned in season two.

I mean, this is exactly why that plot point was just a cheap, emotional copout. If they aren’t going to explore the fact that he’s a freaking robot now then what was the point? Why couldn’t they have had Soong and the Android genious community suddenly figure out how to cure him in his original body? It would have had the same effect.
