New #Venom Trailer & Poster . You Have Been Warned

Clive Standen Cast As Bryan Mills In Taken

Deadline is reporting that Taken, NBC’s straight-to-series adaptation of the hit movie franchise, has cast its lead, tapping The Vikings co-star Clive Standen to play younger Bryan Mills, the character portrayed in the movies by Liam Neeson.

Written and executive produced by Alex Cary (Homeland), who serves as showrunner, the Taken TV series is a modern-day prequel to the film franchise that depicts how Bryan Mills (Standen) developed and sharpened his particular set of skills. EuropaCorp TV USA and Universal Television are producing.

British actor Standen has been playing one of the central characters, Rollo, on History’s hit drama The Vikings, which is currently airing its fourth season, with a Season 5 renewal expected soon. Standen is segueing to Taken after completing has obligations on the History drama, filming the two 10-episode parts of Season 4. I hear his character is not being killed off, so there is a possibility for him to appear in Season 5 as a guest star. He is repped by CAA, UK’s Independent Talent Group and Management 360.

Cary executive produces Taken alongside Luc Besson (who co-wrote and produced the three-movie franchise), and EuropaCorp’s Matthew Gross, Edouard de Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros. Alex Graves is directing and executive producing the pilot episode.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

Enter For A Chance To Win Pass To See TULLY on May 1st at 7:00 PM in Dallas.

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
