  1. Deadline is reporting that Fredrik Malmberg and Mark Wheeler’s Pathfinder Media have struck a deal with Netflix to develop an epic live-action series based on Conan, the iconic sword-and-sorcery character created by writer Robert E. Howard. Part of the deal includes Conan Properties International, owned by Malmberg’s Cabinet Entertainment. In creating this deal, Netflix has exclusive option to acquire rights to the Conan literary library and develop works across TV and film, both live-action and animated, including Roald Dahl’s novels, The Chronicles of Narnia books and comics publisher Millarworld. A search for a writer/showrunner to script the Conan adaptation and director are currently underway. Malmberg and Wheeler will serve as executive producers on the potential series through their Pathfinder Media. The character of Conan the Barbarian, aka Conan the Cimmerian, appeared in 1932 in Weird Tales magazine. The Sword and Sorcery of the Conan stories have inspired over over a thousand comic books, one hundred novels, three feature films, two television series, multiple video games, and a vast range of collectibles, toys, and more, worldwide. In 2018, Amazon started developing a Conan drama series, from Ryan Condal, Miguel Sapochnik, Warren Littlefield, Pathfinder Media and Endeavor Content. Wheeler and Malmberg previously produced Syfy’s Blood Drive.
  2. Boss Fight Studio, creator of fan-favorite, highly articulated figures announces their latest action figure line, The Umbrella Academy from television studio Universal Content Productions and brokered by UCP’s licensing agency, Striker Entertainment! With characters based on the wildly popular Netflix show, the action figures will feature Boss Fight’s signature multiple articulation points allowing for creative and imaginative poses. “The Umbrella Academy has long been one of our favorite shows,” says Catrina Arana, Partner and Art Director at Boss Fight Studio, “we love each character and the uniqueness; I’m excited to bring them to action figure form.” The first wave of figures will include Klaus, Vanya, Diego, and Cha-Cha and is anticipated to hit shelves in Q2 2021. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Boss Fight Studio” says Curtis Matthews, Licensing Executive at Striker Entertainment LLC. “Their signature high articulation and attention to detail will really bring the character personalities forward. The poses and movement possibilities are exciting.” Launched in 2013, Boss Fight Studio originally brought their fan favorite Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. IP to market, allowing for easy customization and playability of toys. As the company grew, they’ve expanded to host some exciting licenses bringing that same high articulation and attention to detail to fan-loved brands. Umbrella Academy is the latest brand added to the portfolio. “We can’t wait to excite new fans with these toys. This is our first license with a contemporary show playing as we design. It will be fun to transform the beloved characters along with the story lines on the show” says Arana. “I’ve already started brainstorming how to bring Season 2 characters to life and I can’t wait.”
  3. Known as the gold standard of survival horror games with over 100 million units from the game series shipped worldwide, Resident Evil has now been transformed into a Netflix original CG anime series. This series is scheduled for a global launch in 2021 exclusively on Netflix. Three years after 2017's CG film Resident Evil: Vendetta, technology has further evolved, creating the groundwork for a new series in unprecedented full 3DCG animation. Since the first game was released in 1996 on Sony PlayStation, the Resident Evil series is nearing its 25th anniversary. With the series continuing to evolve even now, a new title carves itself into the series’ history. This series is entitled RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness. This new series will be produced and supervised by Capcom's Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who is responsible for bringing numerous titles in the Resident Evil series into existence. TMS Entertainment, which has birthed various anime series, will produce the series, while Quebico, led by Kei Miyamoto, the producer of Resident Evil: Vendetta, will be in charge of the full 3DCG animation production. This will be a horror-action series based around the stories of the two popular characters, Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. By adding suspense into dynamic action scenes, this series will reveal a Resident Evil world unlike anything seen before.
  4. Deadline is reporting that Basil Eidenbenz has taken over as the role of Witcher Eskel for the second season of Netflix's The Witcher.

Eidenbenz is credit for his roles in the UK series Victoria and The Athena and Canada’s X Company. Below is Thue Ersted Rasmussen Instagram announcement concerning his departure:
  5. Netflix has confirmed the cancellation of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series. The cancellation of Jim Henson’s epic fantasy adventure series came just hours after the series’ win this weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Children’s Program.
  6. The Hollywood Reporter has printed an article about the how the comic book industry is dealing with abuse claims and has learned that Writer and Creator of Netflix's Castlevania, Warren Ellis, has been accused of sexual harassment and abuse by multiple women. Ellis has completed work on the upcoming season of Castlevania, but he will not be back for future seasons and has been dismissed by Netflix. Sources claim that Ellis released a June 19th statement that acknowledged "mistakes" but said, "I have never consciously coerced, manipulated or abused anyone, nor have I ever assaulted anybody." "Comics is a small industry, and you can lose your career by speaking out," says Madolan Greene, one of the many who claim they were abused by Ellis. "Who has enough power to call out bad behavior without losing their job? How do we talk about these 'open secrets' before the victims have to step up and do it?" Greene is one of the more than 100 women and nonbinary people behind SoManyOfUs.com, which arose July 12th out of conversations among those Ellis had allegedly groomed across two decades. "We were all hurt, but what could we do with that pain?" says Sarah Deaton, another of the site's members. "What did we want to see happen? And one of the things we kept hearing was, 'I don't want this to happen to anyone else.' Everything else just grew from there." SoManyOfUs takes a proactive approach to sexual harassment and abuse, pairing personal testimonials and alleged examples of Ellis' behavior with definitions of tactics and terms like "grooming," "coercion" and "gaslighting." As Zoetica Ebb, one of the site's core editors, puts it, "What we've done offers others experiencing systemic abuse a sort of template for coming forward."

  8. Netflix’s home of all things geek - confirmed today that a scripted live action series inspired by Capcom’s massive Resident Evil franchise is coming to Netflix. Building on one of the most popular, best selling survival horror video games of all time, Resident Evil will tell a brand new story across two timelines: In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world. Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters -- people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past - about her sister, her father and herself - continue to haunt her. ANDREW DABB, Showrunner/Executive Producer/Writer, said: “Resident Evil is my favorite game of all time. I'm incredibly excited to tell a new chapter in this amazing story and bring the first ever Resident Evil series to Netflix members around the world. For every type of Resident Evil fan, including those joining us for the first time, the series will be complete with a lot of old friends, and some things (bloodthirsty, insane things) people have never seen before." EPISODES: 8 x 1-hour episodes SHOWRUNNER/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/WRITER: Andrew Dabb (Supernatural) DIRECTOR/EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead, The Journey Is the Destination) will direct and executive produce the first two episodes EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben of Constantin Film and Mary Leah Sutton PRODUCER: Constantin Film CEO Martin Moszkowicz STUDIO: Constantin Film ABOUT THE RESIDENT EVIL FRANCHISE: Since Capcom first debuted the genre-defining survival horror title in 1996, Resident Evil has become one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time, with more than 100 million games sold worldwide. Over the course of almost 25 years, the series has expanded beyond games into film adaptations and theme park attractions. The Resident Evil six-film franchise, produced by Constantin Film, has collectively earned more than $1.2 billion worldwide making it the most successful movie franchise based on a video game.

  10. There have been many animated shows for Transformers done over the years since the original G1 series premiered back in 1984. Some have been better than others, but for someone like me who grew up on the original, they never fully lived up to my expectations of what a new series should be, until now. The first chapter in the Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy premiers today on Netflix. While this new series is not a continuation of the original G1 show, it takes many aspects from that series and modernizes them in a way that I think will be very appealing to fans first introduced to Transformers back in the 80’s. The first chapter of this new show contains six 24-minute episodes. I don’t know if this was an intentional nod to the original show, but the first episode opens with characters Wheeljack and Bumblebee. Just like in the original, the two seek to replenish the Autobot’s energy supplies. In this version, we are presented with interesting twists like Bumblebee not being an actual Autobot. Instead, he is an independent scavenger hired by the Autobots to help them find Energon, the lifeblood of all Transformers. I think Bumblebee is presented here as a far more complex and interesting character than he was in the original series. The basic premise of the new show is essentially the same as always, the Autobots are engaged in a long-fought war with their more warrior-like counterparts known as the Decepticons. However, don’t necessarily expect your typical good vs. evil narration of this story like we’ve seen before. While the Decepticons are portrayed primarily as the bad guys here, like you would expect, their motivations for fighting the Autobots isn’t as cut and dry as you might think. Signals during the first chapter suggest the Decepticons actually may have legitimate grievances against their Autobot brothers. Like the original show, the Autobots are led by Optimus Prime who continues to exhibit the qualities of an honorable leader, and the Decepticons follow Megatron who is as ruthless as always. Once again though, don’t expect to see the same dynamics play out between these two leaders like we’ve seen before. The series takes great pains to hint at a past between these two that I think will make for a very interesting backstory, more so than what we have seen before, at least in the cartoons. While the series I think can be enjoyed by kids, I think the intent definitely was to make this one more for the adults. After all, this is a story about war, and they do a good job of portraying the effects of war can have on a civilization, very similar to what they did in the original Transformers animated movie. In other words, if you have young kids who might want to check this out, you may want to vet it first before letting them watch it. I don’t want to suggest it’s overtly violent, but at the same time things do happen that might be upsetting to younger kids so just use caution there. Overall, I liked the animation. It’s very dark, which is good in setting the tone for the story but made it hard to make out individual characters especially when it came to the many Decepticon Seeker jets featured in the battle scenes. Since all the Seekers have the same bodies, the only way to tell one from the other is with their colors, which did not always stand out well. The character designs are also true to their toy counterparts. Unlike in the original series, this was like watching the actual toys come to life on the screen. For the most part I think that is a good thing, but a few times movements like running looked a little off for some of the characters. One of the animation effects I really liked in the new show was Shockwave’s eye. I don’t know why, but I just thought it looked really cool. For the voice actors, I think they did a really good job here. When the new series was first announced, I was very surprised to see they did not bring in Peter Cullen from the original series and live movies to voice Optimus Prime. They brought in Jake Foushee who voiced Optimus for other shows. I had never heard him do Prime before now, but I will say he did a good job here. At times I actually thought I was hearing Cullen speak. Another voice I was really impressed with was Starscream, voiced by Sam Riegel. Many people over the years have tried to recreate what the late and great Chris Latta did for the character during the G1 series, and I think Riegel has come the closest to doing just that. And then there was Soundwave. While not quite as good as the original, they did a great job of recreating that unique tone Soundwave is known for from the G1 days. Going into this show I was a little leery. I was not terribly impressed with the Transformers: Combiner Wars animated web television series they did a few years ago. Even after watching the trailer for this new show, I had my reservations about it. I am very happy to report that those reservations were misplaced and that I walked away loving this new series. It’s not perfect, but I really think this is the show we fans of the original series have been waiting for and I highly recommend you check it out. Look for it on Netflix now.
  11. Variety is reporting that 'John Wick' film franchise writer Derek Kolstad has been picked up by Netflix and Ubisoft to serve as writer and executive producer for an anime series adaptation of the video game “Splinter Cell”. Sources are reporting that the series has received a two-season, 16 episode order at the streaming service. The first “Splinter Cell” video game was released in 2002 to large numbers in sales which has lead to spawning six sequels as well as a series of novels. The game follows former U.S. Navy SEAL Sam Fisher after he is recruited by the NSA to work for the mysterious Third Echelon division within the agency. The game sees Fisher engage in number of black ops missions, employing stealth and military tactics. Kolstad has worked on all three 'John Wick' films and co-created the Quibi series 'Die Hart' starring Kevin Hart and John Travolta. He has worked on 'Falcon and Winter Soldier' series at Disney Plus.
  12. Netflix has announced they are developing a 6 part live-action The Witcher spin-off series entitled The Witccher: Blood Origin. The spin-off series will take place 1200 years before The Witcher series.
  13. Netflix, CD Projekt Red, and Studio Trigger announce an all new original anime series CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS set in the same universe as the upcoming game, Cyberpunk 2077. The series will premiere in 2022. CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner - a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk. CD PROJEKT RED, the company behind the Cyberpunk 2077 video game, is producing the series, with a creative team formed of talent from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Cyberpunk 2077. The team at CD PROJEKT RED has been working on this new series since 2018. Acclaimed Japan-based animation company, Studio Trigger, will serve as the animation studio on the series and bring the world of Cyberpunk to life with their signature, vibrant style. Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) will direct the series along with assistant director Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Promare), creative director Hiromi Wakabayashi (Kill la Kill) , character designer Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) and Yuto Kaneko (Little Witch Academia), and the adapted screenplay by Yoshiki Usa (SSSS.GRIDMAN, Promare) and Masahiko Otsuka (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare). The original score will be composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series). "We are so excited to finally reveal that we are working on an anime in the Cyberpunk world," said Adam Badowski, Cyberpunk 2077 Game Director and CD PROJEKT RED Head of Studio. "We've devoured just about all the cyberpunk fiction there is to watch, read, and play; it's a genre that leaves so much room for creativity, and has had such a strong influence on us. CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS is our love letter to cyberpunk as a whole, and to stories told in animated form." "We at TRIGGER are thrilled to work with CD PROJEKT RED to create a brand-new story set in the world of the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077. It's a huge challenge to adapt this universe into an anime, but we are eager to face it head-on," said Masahiko Otsuka, CEO, Studio TRIGGER. Director Hiroyuki Imaishi adds, "I've always loved cyberpunk as a genre, but always found it difficult to create as an original work. This is why I'm very excited to be working with CD PROJEKT RED on this project. It won't be easy to please both game and anime fans, but I love a challenge, and I'm looking forward to the production. We'll do our best to meet and exceed expectations."

  15. Netflix and Hasbro have partnered with Rooster Teeth to bring Transformers: War For Cybertron to Netfl;ix on July 30th. Rooster Teeth will produce the original series for Netflix and Polygon Pictures will serve as the animation studio. Transformers veteran FJ DeSanto (Transformers: Titans Return, Transformers: Power of the Primes) will serve as showrunner on the series with several contributing writers, including George Krstic (Megas XLR), Gavin Hignight (Transformers: Cyberverse), and Brandon Easton (Agent Carter, Transformers: Rescue Bots). It is the final hours of the devastating civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. The war that has torn apart their home planet of Cybertron is at a tipping point. Two leaders, Optimus Prime and Megatron, both want to save their world and unify their people, but only on their own terms. In an attempt to end the conflict, Megatron is forced to consider using the Allspark, the source of all life and power on Cybertron, to “reformat” the Autobots, thus “unifying” Cybertron. Outnumbered, outgunned, and under SIEGE, the battle-weary Autobots orchestrate a desperate series of counterstrikes on a mission that, if everything somehow goes right, will end with an unthinkable choice: kill their planet in order to save it.

  20. “Your greatest gift to me, and I’m killing him. I must already be dead.” *DISCLAIMER*: This review is not sponsored. I’m a massive fan of Castlevania. My dad introduced me to Symphony of the Night on the original PlayStation when I was 3, and I’ve played multiple entries since; from Circle of the Moon to Lords of Shadow 2 — hell, I even played the most recent mobile release, Grimoire of Souls. It’s the game series of my childhood. When I heard there was an anime being picked up by Netflix, I damn near cried nerd tears of joy — having waited seven years since first finding out of an initial live-action movie adaptation. And once I saw it and found out it was actually good, I was massively thrilled. It was so good, in one hell of a peak Reddit moment, I personally messaged the showrunner, Adi Shankar; asking if a figure line was coming out, to which he replied: “it’s coming”. Suffice it to say, I was very excited when this figure line was formally announced by Diamond Select Toys almost a year later. I had some understandably high hopes because, finally, we were gonna get some decent Castlevania figures that were advertised to be more poseable than the NECA figures of yore (which I also have lol). The prototype figures all looked great, and proudly boasted 20 points of articulation. And now that I have the set of three; Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard — I can only say these figures fell out of a bull’s ass. Once again, Castlevania gets crapped on by the toy industry. These figures are so disappointing that I held off on this review for so long. To put into perspective just how long, I got these figures about three weeks before I got my Dante. It was too depressing to even think of, that I couldn't bring myself to take photos of these figures til JUST recently. I’ll explain exactly why in this review. I’ll start off with the only good things these figures got going for them: the sculpt and paint job. They’re really nice. But because of the figures having embellishments (coattails and robe detail) made of hard-but-pliable plastic, the sculpt gets in the way of a lot of the articulation. Just as well, the paints are decent, but Sypha’s got a rat mouth thing going, and Trevor’s eyes look a bit lazily done rather than just lazy. However, in certain lighting, the paint jobs are perfect. Anyways, going back to the articulation: these figures are articulated like trash. They were all advertised to sport double jointed elbows (except Sypha), but for some reason, DST had gone cheapo and went back on that; giving us single-jointed elbows that’re also sleeved. I can’t put Alucard into his trademark en-garde pose from the anime because the elbows can’t bend further than 45 degrees. FORTY-FIVE FRIGGIN DEGREES. Sypha’s robes all get in the way of her poseability as well, so she can’t really look like she’s casting spells. Trevor’s the best articulated out of all of them, but that really ain’t saying much because his arms also suffer the 45-degree syndrome. These figures come with way too many accessories than they can pose with. Granted, most of them are hands, but these accessories won’t do any good if the figures can’t be posed nicely with them. Alucard doesn’t come with any form of hand to hold the sheathe of his sword. Additionally, I had to RIP off a throwing knife from one of Trevor’s throwing knife hands just so he can hold his whip. You read that correctly, Trevor didn’t come with ANY hands to hold his weapons until I unwillingly (and forcefully) damaged one of them after exasperatedly exclaiming out loud “are you actually serious?”. Exhibited in this photo is is said hand holding the morning star whip, with the scar the knife I ripped off left on his thumb. It looks like peanut butter. Good thing that throwing knife was just soft plastic. Imagine if it wasn’t — we’d be having an angrier conversation right now, possibly with more expletives. Their excuse for this as I quote on the comment section of one of their posts is it’s a factory error. I guess the elbows are a factory elbow too, huh? I digress; he also comes with two swords and sheathes that can NOT be placed anywhere on him, and his whips can’t be stowed on his person either — which sucks because the figure itself has loops on its belt as though to store them. To top it all off, Trevor was also advertised to come with his cloak — but just like the elbow articulation, DST went back on that and replaced it with something stupider: a bland medieval bucket that doesn’t even have holy water or salt sculpted into it, or even a goddamn handle for Trevor to hold. Was this also a factory error? We consumers didn’t even get news for ANY of these changes during production. It’s borderline criminal. Honestly, the only good thing I can say for these figures is that they look very nice. Other than that, I can’t recommend anyone buy these figures for the $25 price point. McFarlane is making a Wonder Woman figure for WW1984 in the same scale that’s going for $19, and it’s even MORE poseable than this tragedy of a toy line. This is exactly what happens when you give a mature license to a manufacturer whose audience is veered more toward younger ages. It’s very evident they didn’t know if they wanted to cater to kids or adults with these figures. There are so many accessories — small enough that a kid can choke on them, yet the figures can’t be posed worth a damn. There’s a very obvious lack of passion that went into the figures. The abundance of accessories does NOT make up for the lack of articulation. As I said earlier, accessories aren’t worth it if the figures can’t be posed with them. There has to be a justified BALANCE. If there isn’t, what’s the point? DST should stick to statues, plain and simple. Do not give DST your hard earnings for this. You as fans and consumers deserve better. This line should’ve gone to Bandai’s FiguArts or Max Factory’s Figma, or hell — even McFarlane; people who actually care about the products they’re releasing, who have actually made good anime figures. I can’t even sell these if I wanted to because of the box design (which is un-reusable) and the damage I had to cause to Trevor. If they come out with 2.0 versions of these figures that are closer to what was advertised, I’m actually gonna be pissed. In the album, I’ll provide prototype images so you know what I’m mad about. It sucks because with Castlevania, fans have come to the mindset that crappy figures are better than nothing — something I’ve personally fallen victim for as well. Only difference is a good number of them go on to praise these things because of that mindset. Thing is, Castlevania’s only ever gotten crappy figures (besides that amazing F4F statue, but that’s a statue). This franchise deserves a bone. + good sculpts + decent paint apps - heavily hindered articulation way more accessories than the figures deserve - figures were falsely advertised - Trevor’s lack of designated weapon holding hands - Also his cloak got switched to a generic medieval bucket - Bucket don’t even have a handle -Sypha’s somehow got even less articulation than the other two figures I’m really salty about those elbows. They’re the sole reason these figures can’t look good while posed. I got these figures at BigBadToyStore, but I’m not providing link to them specifically like normal because consumers deserve better than this garbage. Your money would actually be better spent on something else.

  22. Netflix released the third season of Castlevania less than a month ago and they have just announced a fourth season. No information has been released about the number of episodes or release date for fourth season.
  23. Lost in Space has been renewed by Netflix for a third season, in which The Robinson Family's epic space journey towards Alpha Centauri will conclude. Additionally, Netflix and Lost in Space Executive Producer/ showrunner Zack Estrin have agreed to enter a multi-year overall deal to produce new series exclusively at Netflix. Estrin says, "From the beginning, we've always viewed this particular story of The Robinsons as a trilogy. A three part epic family adventure with a clear beginning, middle and end. It's also worth noting that, with what these characters go through just trying to survive each episode - if anyone deserves to catch their breath before their next mission -- it's Will, Penny, Judy, Maureen, John, Don West, Dr. Smith... and The Robot. And, of course, Debbie the Chicken. So while this chapter of Lost In Space is coming to a rousing conclusion, I'm excited about continuing to explore new stories with my friends at Netflix, and for all of the incredible possibilities that lie ahead." Ted Biaselli, Director of Original Series at Netflix, added, "We are so thrilled to share more adventures of The Robinson Family and see their journey through to what is sure to be an epic finale. We're especially thankful to Zack Estrin, Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni for helming Lost in Space, which has brought viewers a premium action-packed and visually spectacular series that the whole family can enjoy together, and we can't wait for our family audiences to see where season 3 will lead!"

Lost in Space stars Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Maxwell Jenkins, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell, Ignacio Serricchio and Parker Posey.

Lost in Space season 2 premiered on December 24, 2019. Lost in Space season 1 premiered April 13, 2018.
