The Tick Returning To Amazon TV

Ben Edlund's The Tick is making another TV comeback, this time as a pilot for a potential series over at Amazon. However, no one should greet this news with the expectation that it's a revival of the nine-episode 2001 FOX series, because this is likely to be a very different Tick designed for today's audience.

Patrick Warburton, who played the character in that version, is tied up with his new series, Crowded, while Nestor Carbonell (Batmanuel) is a regular on Bates Motel. Although the title role is yet to be cast, announced is Vinyl's Griffin Newman as Tick sidekick Arthur Everest, with House Of Lies and The Following's Valorie Curry cast as his sister, Expected to direct the pilot - which Edlund is writing - is Wally Pfister (director of photography for The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception, and director of Transcendence).

In this take on the subject, Arthur is someone who has been diagnosed as being schizophrenic due to his constant claims that their city will be ruled by evil. Naturally no one takes him seriously, until he encounters The Tick - who is suffering from memory loss - and the two of them decide to team up.

Introduced as a mascot of sorts for New England Comics 30 years ago, The Tick became the star of his own comic book series. In 1994 the character made the leap to television in the form of a three-season animated series, and then, of course, there was the 2001 live action show.

As it usually does, Amazon will film the pilot and put it out there with others for the public to view. In the end, it will be the public that determines whether or not the man in blue makes a return.

First Look At Rene Zellweger As Judy Garland

Renee Zellweger would be taking on the challenge of playing Judy Garland in a new biopic called, simply, Judy. If you wondered what she'd look like, you now have the chance.

Director Rupert Goold has now kicked off shooting the film in London, working from a script by The Crown's Tom Edge. The story is set in 1968 as Garland arrives in chilly, swinging London to perform at a sell-out run of her show. It's 30 years since she appeared in The Wizard Of Oz, and if her voice isn't quite the same, her intensity has grown.

She faces battles with her management and charms the musicians she works with, while also starting a romance with Mickey Deans, who will go on to be her fifth husband. Yet she's also haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and struggling with the desire to be back home with her kids.

Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock and Michael Gambon are also in the cast, with no word yet on a release date.
