Following their successful collaboration adapting his comic “Happy!” for Syfy, famed comic writer Grant Morrison and Universal Cable Productions will re-team to develop and produce a TV series based on Morrison’s 1990s Vertigo comic series “The Invisibles”.

Set in 2020, the story follows an elite international cell of occult freedom fighters dedicated to the creation of a better world for everyone – by any means necessary. The comic served as a major inspiration for The Wachowski’s “The Matrix” Trilogy.

Morrison’s work on “Batman,” “JLA” and “Doom Patrol” have been celebrated, and his other creations include “The Filth” and “We3”. Morrison is also working with Brian Taylor and David Weiner to adapt Aldous Huxley’s sci-fi novel “Brave New World” for television.

Continuing our month into Halloween movies for kiddos, week three found us hovering around a timeless classic, a new love and two VERY kid-friendly Halloween stories. Not many tricks this time, only treats and not much to spook anyone, but a few to melt the heart.

Here’s how our rating works;

One pumpkin for each of the following categories: 

1- spooky
2- charming
3- teach a lesson of some sort
4- have great music that moves the story and/or makes the spooky parts better
5- reference Halloween at least ONCE in the film.
Additionally, one “harvest moon” is awarded by each of them when they decide it’s a keeper. This is like their “bonus point”.

Anna Brewster (“Versailles”), Michael Pitt (“Ghost in the Shell”), and Sharlto Copley (“Free Fire”) will all join Edgar Ramirez in the cast of the Netflix feature “The Last Days of American Crime” to be helmed by Olivier Megaton (“Taken 2”) from a script by Karl Gajdusek.

Based on Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini’s graphic novel, the story is set when, in a final response to fight terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts.

Graham Bricke (Ramirez), a career criminal who was never able to hit the big score, teams up with Kevin Cash (Pitt) and Shelby Dupree (Brewster) to commit the heist of the century and the last crime in American history before the signal goes off.

Stop the presses and hold the phones….
