Locke & Key, #Amblin Television


Bringing the massive Stephen King/Peter Straub horror book The Talisman to the screen (whether being it the big or the small)  has been on Spielberg's To-Do list for a long long time. The recent success Amblin Television had (and has) with the translation of one of Stephen King’s other book titles, Under the Dome, however has lit the spark once more, so hopefully we will be able to take a closer look at the dark parallel world of Jack Sawyer in the very near future.

However, Stephen King isn’t the only person in the King family writing at this moment. Both his wife (Tabitha) and his sons (Owen King and Joe Hill) have had success in writing.

Joe’s writing comes closest to that of his father and so it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that his work has been transferred to film and TV as well. Last year his novel Horns received the Hollywood treatment, but that wasn’t the first time. His Graphic Novel-series Locke & Key (An adventure series centered around three children who become the caretakers of a New England mansion that is home to a bevy of secrets and magic.) which has been published from 2008 till 2013, was the subject of a TV-Movie in 2011, produced by Amblin and DreamWorks Television.


Until this day, there hasn’t been a follow-up even though the graphic novel series (and the trailer) are crying for more, so let’s hope that one day this story will be continued.



I'll keep you posted.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
