Neil Marshall Crowned For 'Game Of Thrones,' Phil Lord & Chris Miller Book A 'Reunion' & More

The Playlist By Cain Rodriguez | The Playlist July 9, 2013 at 2:03PM

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.

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.

Though he’s busy prepping the untitled Pablo Escobar biopic, with Oscar Isaac in the starring role, “The Lincoln Lawyer” helmer Brad Furman will carve out time— per Deadline— to shepard and direct the small-screen adaptation of James Patterson’s “Private” book series with “Black Swan” writer John McLaughlin handling scripting duties. There’s no network involved yet but with production set to start on the two-part pilot, we can’t imagine a deal isn’t too far behind. Hopefully this doesn’t delay the Escobar biopic any further.

After the franchise non-starter that was last year’s attempt at “Dredd,” director Pete Travis is heading back to British TV. Deadline is reporting that Travis will direct an adaptation of the Alan Judd 2001 novel, “Legacy,” for BBC Two. The Cold War-set novel follows a young spy in London who discovers the disturbing truth about his father’s complex past. Charlie Cox (“Boardwalk Empire”), Romola Garai (“The Hour”), Andrew Scott (the “Sherlock” BBC series) and Simon Russell Beale (“My Week With Marilyn”) all star in the film.

While “21 Jump Street” and “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs” helmers Phil Lord andChris Miller are busy on the animated “The Lego Movie,” they’re still finding time to work on other projects. Variety is reporting that the duo will split up for the comedy project “The Reunion,” which will see Miller handle both directorial and scripting duties on his own, though Lord would still be producing with his longtime creative partner. Other than it revolving around a high school reunion— hence the title— not much else is known about the film. “The Lego Movie” arrives in theaters next year on February 7th.
