Locke And Key Finds Its Star
Lord Of The Rings actress Miranda Otto (Eowyn) is set to star in Fox’s new US TV show Locke And Key, based on the comic by Stephen King’s son Joe Hill, reports Deadline. She will play Nina Locke, who, with her three children, Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode, attempt to rebuild their lives after the murder of their dad by moving to an old family mansion in Lovecraft, Massachusetts (hint – if you’re in a horror story, never move to somewhere called Lovecraft). There the kids find magical keys hidden inside its walls that are also being sought by a hate-filled and relentless creature with ties to the Locke family’s past who will stop at nothing to accomplish his evil goals. Lost and Star Trek’s Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing, while Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles creator Josh Friedman wrote the pilot.

Harry Potter Makes Damon Lindelof Change His Mind About Lost Fans Who Hated The Series Finale
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows has had a profound effect on Lost executive producer Damon Lindelof. So much so he’s re-assessed his opinion of Lost fans who hated the Lost series finale. Writing a review of the latest Potter film for The Daily Beast, he says, “The most awesome part about being one of the primary storytellers of a popular television show is hearing how much its most loyal fans hate it. Oh. Wait. It’s actually not awesome. It hurts like hell. I know—boo hoo for me. That’s the price of doing business, isn’t it? If I’m asking you to invest your time and attention in a story I’m telling, it’s your right to tell me that you hate that story. You just don’t get to call yourself a ‘fan.’ At least that is what I had always believed. Then I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1.” He then waxes lyrical about how much he loves the Potter books (“it’s my humble opinion that Jo Rowling – only amateurs refer to her as “JK” – is pretty much one of the greatest living writers of popular fiction, if not the greatest”) before admitting that he hated the movie and, “if I hated the movie… Did that mean I was no longer a fan?” He concludes that yes he is, but it made him realise one thing: “I sincerely and genuinely apologise to all those whom I have stripped of their Lost fandom just for complaining about the stuff you didn’t like. It doesn’t make you any less a fan. In fact… It just makes you honest. I respect that. And I’m genuinely sorry for ever feeling otherwise.”
Underworld 4 Now Has A Title That Makes It Sound Like A Twilight Movie
According to Bloody Disgusting, the fourth Underworld film will be called New Dawn, which kinda makes it sound like a Twilight movie. Maybe they’re going to up the snogging ante? The site also has a plot synopsis: “After being held in a coma-like state for 15 years, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) learns that she has a 14-year-old vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter, Nissa, and when she finds her they must stop BioCom from creating super Lycans that will kill them all.”
Harry Potter’s Draco Actor Talks About His Rise Of The Apes Role
Tom Felton has been speaking Collider about his role in the kinda-sorta-prequelish-deimagining-do-over Rise Of The Apes: “I can’t reveal too much, of course. It’s a fairly unpleasant role again, unfortunately. Well, I say ‘unfortunately’, more like ‘fortunately’ really. The long and short of it is, I work at a primate facility which my dad owns and needless to say I don’t take care of our residents too well. I have a whole arsenal of weapons that I use at my taste. It was a delightful role and I really enjoyed it. It’s very, very different from Draco even if he is still not a pleasant character, in a very different way.”
