So, is AMC ready to go sci-fi? Well, it might be a smart play. The zombie genre has proven to be a massive success with the network, with "The Walking Dead" a big hit and it looks like they might want to see if sci-fi can do something similar.

The usual conversation about Neil LaBute, at least around here, is how the man who broke out with provocative fare like "In The Company Of Men" and "Your Friends & Neighbors" has turned into the unrecognizable guy behind stuff like "Lakeview Terrance," "The Wicker Man" and "Death At A Funeral." But it looks like the man who examined and completely turned upside down the relationships between men and women, is returning to that fertile ground with two new projects.

With "Pain & Gain" dropping next week, and work starting on "Transformers 4" very soon, you might think that Micheal Bay's plate is plenty full. You would be wrong. The director has also found some time to put on his executive producing hat (reminder: his Platinum Dunes shingle is also behind the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles") and head to the small screen for "Black Sails." Yes, it's a TV show about pirates, and it pretty much looks like what you might expect a Michael Bay-produced TV show about pirates to look like.

Rumors have been quiet recently surrounding "Star Wars: Episode 7," but once the press gauntlet begins soon for "Star Trek Into Darkness," and J.J. Abrams gets inevitably grilled about his plans, we'll have plenty more updates. But until then, leave it to Patton Oswalt -- who, as fans know, is a man who knows his way around the "Star Wars" universe -- to awesomely and hilariously weigh in on 'Episode 7' with a nearly genius, 8-minute-long outtake from "Parks and Recreation."

Remember a few weeks ago when we broke down the various projects Quentin Tarantino has flirted with in the past? Well, you can take one of them off the list of possible future endeavours, as a British television production company has beaten Tarantino to the punch.

A few months ago there were rumors that another season of "Twin Peaks" might be on the table, although they were quickly nixed. Having said that, they did get an awful lot of people excited while there still seemed to be some potential there. You could argue that excitement was purely about the cult show, but for many it would have been motivated by the potential return of David Lynch to the small screen (and at this point, we take his return anywhere).

Jamie Foxx Wants To Scare With A Syfy Horror Series He'll Produce, Write & Direct

Perhaps the best advice any actor can receive is to diversity and Jamie Foxx -- who first became known for his comedy -- seems to be taking that to heart. Before "Django Unchained," he starred in the hit comedy "Horrible Bosses" (sequel on the way) before stepping into Quentin Tarantino's movie, and he'll next play the President in "White House Down," Electro in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and also do a voice role in "Rio 2." And how, he's dipping his toes into a wholly new genre -- well, actually, he's throwing his whole body in the pool....

Bananas and ice cream sandwiches -- if you're a fan of "Arrested Development" you already know what those things mean to show, and if you don't, you should be catching up on all three seasons right now before the batch of new episodes hit Netflix next month. All this to say, there are three new posters for the upcoming not-really-a-season, and with both Jason Bateman and David Cross currently on the interview rounds for their respective indies ("Disconnect" and "It's A Disaster"), the inevitable question about the potential movie keeps rearing its head.

'Breaking Bad' Saul Goodman Spinoff Becomes A Bit More Real As AMC Starts Kicking The Tires

Shed a tear and light a candle (or whatever it is that you do when you lose something) -- there are only eight episodes of "Breaking Bad" to go. The cherished series draws to an end this summer and Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will find their fates decided. But that world may not be closed entirely. Last summer, "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan said, “I would love to see a Saul Goodman spinoff. I can’t say that it is genuinely in the works at this moment, but certainly Bob Odenkirk and I have talked about it a little bit.” And while he remained cautious about it happening, it's not so farfetched...

Trend alert!? Are we headed for full blown prequel-itis on TV? With NBC experiencing a nearly-there hit with the actually pretty decent "Hannibal" (they're going to rerun the pilot this Wednesday night, before airing the second episode on Thursday), A&E has already gone ahead and declared "Bates Motel" a winner.
