It’s been a while since we spoke to Cary Fukunaga but last week at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival we had the pleasure of catching up with the “Jane Eyre” and “Sin Nombre” director, and he filled us in on his many upcoming projects. Some of these projects had gone so quiet we feared they had fallen off the radar entirely but we can happily report that he has a good many diverse irons in a whole bunch of fires right now. In fact his next few years look, from this vantage point, to be highly promising, especially as it would appear he’s making good on his early intention to become an inveterate genre-hopper.

Swerving in quality nearly every episode yet still sustaining a strong audience, HBO's “The Newsroom” approaches its second season with promises of rejuvenation and a return to form. Creator Aaron Sorkin has already discussed his decision to scrap the new season's first two episodes for story reasons, while also hoping people “take a second look” at the series overall, but now the network has released a few new clips to show off the end result.

Arrested Development, Season 4
Of all the original programming Netflix has debuted this year -- "House Of Cards" (already slated for a second season), "Orange Is The New Black" (kicking off tomorrow and already renewed), "Hemlock Grove" (sorry, folks) -- "Arrested Development" seemed the least likely to immediately return. Getting the gang back together was a well documented ordeal due to the varying schedules of the ensemble, and as the new season revealed, there were only a handful of scenes containing the entire cast, while it mostly stuck to character driven episodes. Indeed, the future of the show has been hazy thus far. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings previously said it was "up to the talent," while creator Mitch Hurwitz has been mostly non-committal about whether the much talked about movie be would next, or simply more episodes. But it looks like it's going to be the latter.

With only three seasons to its name, HBO’s adaptation of “Game Of Thrones” has solidified itself as part of the top tier of TV shows -- at least in this current era -- and while most readers of the original George R. R. Martin-penned book series are willing to roll with the changes made to source material, one man is taking issue with one of the show’s most iconic images.

For a long while it seemed like Guillermo del Toro was attaching his name to everything he could, but nothing was really coming out of those announcements. He’d be attached to a film and then things would go dormant for a long time. “Pacific Rim” was one of those projects and the realization that the film’s release is about to arrive this week is hard to grasp. Thanks to the new clips, like the one below, the reality is quickly setting in.

Poor Alan Moore, Hollywood just won't leave his work alone. Twentieth Century Fox is going to take another crack at adapting "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman," but this time for the small screen as a TV pilot.

After becoming the toast of the genre world with his sophomore feature “The Descent,” Neil Marshall has had trouble connecting with the mainstream. Though both the “Mad Max”-channeling “Doomsday” and “Centurion” left little mark on audiences, it’s his work on the “Game of Thrones” season two episode “Blackwater” that he’s probably now best known for. Empire is reporting that producers have brought back Marshall to helm the fourth season finale which -- POSSIBLE SPOILER -- is set around the Battle Of Castle Black “at The Wall, with Mance Rayder.” Given how terrific his previous episode was, we’re excited to see what Marshall does with such an important of the series.

As we patiently await David Fincher's next feature to get the pieces put in place, he's been doing just fine for the moment over in TV land. "House Of Cards," which he executive produced and directed the first two episodes for, kicked off the year by not only revolutionizing how new shows are brought to market, but by also being just a top tier political drama. Critics and audiences were both taken by it, and a second season is on the way (though Fincher may not be directing), and it seems there's another British TV show he wants to bring to American audiences.

You would think that legends like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton deserve better treatment that kind of cheap, cranked out TV biopics, but we guess not. They aren't superheroes.... Last fall, we saw Lindsay Lohan and That Other Guy do their thing in the roundly derided Lifetime effort "Liz & Dick." Now the Brits are having a go at it with "Burton & Taylor" but at least they're bringing some classier people along for the ride.
