Last night brought excellent news for television fans, with the return of the Elmore Leonard-inspired series "Justified." Now in its third season, the show, which stars Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins, has gone from strength to strength, so much so that we named it our fourth favorite series of the last TV season. Graham Yost is the man behind it, but he's also a veteran screenwriter, with credits like "Speed" and "Broken Arrow" to his name, and he's working on making a return to the big screen for a fairly major project.

HBO Adaptation Of Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods' Planned To Be Effects-Heavy Six Season SeriesThe colossal failure of motion-capture animation "Mars Needs Moms," and the subsequent cancellation by Disney on the planned performance capture remake of "Yellow Submarine," seems to have given Robert Zemeckis, something of a pioneer of the format, pause for thought. The director of mega-hits like "Back to the Future" and "Forrest Gump" hasn't made a live action picture since 2000's double bill of "What Lies Beneath" and "Cast Away," but recent months have seen him linked to any number of potential projects starring real people, rather than dead-eyed facsimiles, including a remake of "The Wizard of Oz" (not happening, thank God), "The Man of Steel," a sequel to "Roger Rabbit," and long-gestating time travel romance "Replay."
