New Trailer For #12StrongMovie

Battlefield TV Series On It's Way

Variety is reporting “Battlefield” is getting the TV treatment.

Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have optioned the rights to the popular video game with the intent to develop a television series, Variety has learned.

Since debuting in 2002, “Battlefield” has amassed over 60 million players worldwide. The video game series consists of 11 different games. The franchise hails from Electronic Arts’ studio EA DICE.

The potential series will be exec produced by Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta.

“’Battlefield’ has a tremendous built-in, engaged fan base, making it a highly coveted piece of IP primed for long-form adaptation,” said Sugar. “Together with EA and Paramount TV, we’ll develop the ‘Battlefield’ TV series with the same commitment to robust storytelling that has made the game such a runaway success for nearly fifteen years.”

Paramount TV president Amy Powell commented: “Paramount TV actively seeks smart content from all sectors that will resonate with audiences and translate to compelling programming. EA’s ‘Battlefield’ has an incredibly dynamic narrative, coupled with a loyal fan base, which will allow us to bring this exciting and unique property to the small screen. We look forward to working with EA and Anonymous Content and thank Michael Sugar for his tenacity in bringing us this exciting project.

The “Battlefield” project marks a continuation in business between Anonymous Content and Paramount TV who have a first-look deal for scripted television content. Some of the many other projects being produced by the two companies are Netflix’s “Thirteen Reasons Why” from exec producer Selena Gomez; Netflix’s “Maniac,” starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill; and TNT’s “The Alienist,” based on the book. “Battlefield” is the first video game-based development project for Paramount TV and Anonymous Content.

“’Battlefield’ is one of the most loved properties among our players. We are thrilled that Anonymous Content and Paramount TV will look to introduce fans to Battlefield through a new medium,” said Patrick Söderlund, executive vice president of EA Entertainment, which is repped by UTA.

EA’s vice president Patrick O’Brien added, “Michael’s track record speaks for itself. Combined with his passion for ‘Battlefield,’ we cannot imagine a better team than Anonymous Content and Paramount for this project.”

The project is not the first television treatment for “Battlefield” — back in 2012, Fox was developing an action comedy series, based on the video game “Battlefield: Bad Company,” though it was never picked up.

Incredibles 2 All-New Teaser Trailer, Poster & Image

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.


Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau — an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable — into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend — and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
