The Order is no more at Netflix. The new Uzumaki anime will be coming to Toonami next year, after a covid-19 delay. Netflix wants to get all Planet Earth with alien life in a new series with Sophie Okonedo. Plus, what’s to come on Fear the Walking Dead and World Beyond. To me, my spoilers!
Deadline reports Rhys Wakefield (The Purge) is attached to star in Alternate, the sci-fi/horror feature debut of Australian director, Anthony Garland. “Set in a high-rise office building” the story follows “an overworked young executive (Wakefield) who goes back in time four hours to save his girlfriend from being killed.”
In a recent interview with Dread Central, Christopher Landon revealed a director has been chosen for a reboot of the Paranormal Activity franchise.
I’m writing the new Paranormal Activity movie; we’re rebooting that franchise. I’m super excited about the director, but I can’t say who it is because they won’t let me [laughs]. He’s a get. He’s awesome! I think people are going to be really surprised by where we’re taking this thing.
Netflix has canceled The Order after two seasons.
During the Toonami panel at the virtual Adult Swim Festival this past weekend, Jason Demarco confirmed Uzumaki is scheduled to air sometime next year.
Uzumaki, sometime next year. We don’t know when — I kind of know when, but I can’t tell you yet — but we’re working hard. It was delayed by about a year because of COVID. COVID concerns caused the production to have to shut down, but we’re still working. It looks great.
Rick and Morty
During the event’s Rick and Morty panel, Dan Harmon revealed the series’ writing staff is already working on season seven.
I think we’re working on Season 7 right now, I can’t even keep track. I wouldn’t know if I were spoiling Season 5 or Season 6.
