The series, which details the Texas Revolution and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers, will air two-hour installments on both Memorial Day (May 25) and the next night (Tuesday, May 26). Its final six hours will then be played out over the next three Mondays (June 1, 8 and 15).

‘Supernatural’ Season 10 Spoilers: John Winchester to return?

December 14th, 2014 at 7:33 pm CDT

“Supernatural” Season 10 getting more explosive as ever, thanks to the return of some of the show’s fan favorites.

Hypable said that the biggest one so far is Papa Winchester. The report said that in the earlier seasons, John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) was shown as a bad parent despite giving up his soul to save a dying Dean (Jensen Ackles). However, the show’s midseason finale for Season 10, “The Things We Left Behind,” had the two brothers reminiscing the time their father saved Dean from a club.

Morgan told Entertainment Weekly about his enthusiasm to return to the show, at least to clear things up about his character’s role as the Winchester patriarch. He said then, “My stance always is, I would love to come back. In fact, they have trashed John so f-king much on that show that I would like to come back just to set the record straight the real way. I’m not that bad of a dad. I saved my kids. I went to hell to save my kids. How bad can I be, people? But there are a couple of storylines that I’d like to resolve, and more importantly those people mean a lot to me.”

John as Dean’s rescuer is a major possibility,given the fact that in the current season, we are seen Dean not being able to resist his killer urge despite the fact that Sam (Jared Padalecki) has cured him of being a demon.

International Business Times noted that Dean’s predicament with the Mark of Cain might definitely be the very thing that could bring John back. In the promo, we are treated to Dean covered with blood and being surrounded by bodies that might have been murdered by his hands. “Supernatural,” which is set to return on January 20th next year, will have Dean hunting for the very being who had made him a demon, Metatron (Curtis Armstrong). Another character who is set to return to the series is the First Born himself, Cain (Tim Omundson). E! Online noted Omundson’s cryptic tweet, which came in with a screenshot of his flight details. The tweet’s caption read, “Why am I going to Vancouver? A) PSYCH reunion B) Bringing Cain back to #SUPERNATURAL C) Extradition Hint: Not A or C.”

The series ran for two seasons before Starz cancelled it in August, 2013.

Kurylenko played the wife of Morgan’s Ike Evans character while Lynch portrayed his former sister-in-law. The movie will be set in 1962.

QED will introduce the project to buyers at the American Film Market next week. Len Blavatnik of AI Film, Brett Ratner of RatPac and Gerry Schwartz of Onex Corporation will produce and finance with Steve Bing of Shangri-La Entertainment, Alan J. Helene and Glazer producing.

“Mitch is a fantastic creative partner and we’re thrilled to collaborate with him again,” Block said. “We loved Magic City the series and know that with Mitch’s sensational script and this outstanding cast, it will translate beautifully to the big screen.”

CAA will represent the film’s domestic distribution rights. Glazer previously directed “Passion Play” and has written “Scrooged,” “The Recruit,” “Great Expectations” and “Rock the Kasbah,” which he also produced along with QED.

Glazer worked with Murray and Willis on “Rock the Kasbah” and with Murray on “Scrooged.”

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Among History’s All-Star ‘Texas Rising’ Cast

March 12th, 2014 at 10:26 pm CDT

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ray Liotta, Thomas Jane, Olivier Martinez, Chad Michael Murray, Michael Rapaport and Max Thieriot also star in the eight-hour mini, with Roland Joffe set to direct.

History Channel has set an all-star cast for its upcoming Texas Rising miniseries.

From the producers of its ratings juggernaut Hatfields & McCoys, Emmy nominee Bill Paxton, Brendan Fraser, Ray Liotta, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Thomas Jane, Olivier Martinez, Chad Michael Murray, Michael Rapaport and Max Thieriot will star in the new drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Oscar nominee Roland Joffe (The Mission, The Killing Fields) will direct.

The eight-hour “event series,” from A+E Studios and ITV Studios America and produced by Thinkfactory, hails from Hatfields’ Leslie Greif, who will executive produce the mini. Rising, which will premiere in 2015, will detail the Texas Revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers, the oldest law enforcement group in North America. Part one is written by Greif, Darrell Fetty and Ted Mann, the latter of whom co-wrote Hatfields for History. Nights two, three and four will be written by Greif and Fetty.

Paxton, who earned an Emmy nomination for his role in Hatfields, will star as Sam Houston, the “father” of Texas. Fraser (The Mummy) will play Billy Anderson, a Texas Ranger with Comanche Indian Ties. Liotta (GoodFellas) is set as Lorca, an Alamo survivor seeking brutal revenge. Morgan, is was one of pilot season’s most in-demand actors, is “Deaf” Smith, a deaf and grizzled veteran Texas Ranger with an advance case of consumption. Jane (Hung) will portray James Wykoff, a homesteader who finds himself living in the middle of hostile Indian territory. Martinez (Before Night Falls) will be President Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, the tyrant dictator of Mexico. Murray (One Tree Hill) will play Mirabeau Lamar, a spirited Texas soldier who helps win the battle of San Jacinto. Rapaport (Justified) is Sgt. Ephraim Knowles, a would-be deserter and coward-turned-hero. Thieriot (Bates Motel) will play Jack Hays, a volunteer freedom fighter who becomes the youngest Texas Ranger. Additional castings are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

“From Hatfields & McCoysto The Bible to Vikings, History has made a major commitment to high-quality scripted historical dramas,” History exec vp and GM Dirk Hoogstra said. “The Texas Revolution is one of the most gut-wrenching and inspirational events in our history. Doing the story justice will be a massive undertaking and we’re excited to begin production with one of the best teams in the business.”

Added Greif: “It’s exciting to be back working with History and Bill Paxton, a team that made television history with Hatfields & McCoys. The battle for Texas independence was epic and really the battle for the future of America. We have Academy Award- and Emmy-nominated talent, a stellar ensemble cast is being set, and with this team, we will seek to even further redefine and elevate the term ‘event television.’ ”

The three-part Hatfields mini broke basic cable ratings records for History in 2012, wrapping its run with 14.3 million total viewers. The mini earned 16 Emmy nominations (including best mini) and took home five, including lead actor for Kevin Costner. Cable networks including History and Discovery have turned to the miniseries as a way to expand into original scripted territory. History has also found success of The Bible, which paired with Hatfield, helped revitalize the mini and “event” series. The success has helped broadcast and cable networks alike lure top-name talent to more limited run fare. For its part, Rising will be a closed-ended eight-episode series, despite its billing by History as an “event” series a la CBS’ Under the Dome, the latter of which was renewed for a second season.

The casting brings Paxton back to History after he earned an Emmy nomination for his work in Hatfields. The Big Love alum is repped by UTA and Bloom Hergott.

For Fraser, the role marks his biggest TV commitment to date and comes more than a year after he exited the starring role in TNT’s Howard Gordon drama Legends. He’s repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment and Felker Toczek.

Liotta is repped by UTA and Untitled; Morgan (Magic City) is with UTA, Precision Entertainment and Bloom Hergott; Jane (61*) is with Paradigm; Martinez is represented by Resolution; Rapaport is with Resolution and Brillstein; and Thieriot is with Gersh and McKuin Frankel. Greif is with Kleinberg Lange.

Here’s History’s official description of Rising: “In 1836, if west of the Mississippi was considered the Wild West then Texas was hell on earth. Crushed from the outside by Mexican armadas and attacked from within by ferocious Comanche tribes — no one was safe. But this was a time of bravery, a time to die for what you believed in and a time to stand tall against the cruel rule of the Mexican General Santa Anna. From General Sam Houston, to rag tag Rangers to the legendary ‘Yellow Rose of Texas — this is a story of the human spirit rising in the face of insurmountable odds and claiming a piece of history for all eternity.”
