  • ScreenDaily
Content Media will commence international sales in Berlin next week on John Suits’ sci-fi action-thriller starring Rachel Nichols, Mekhi Phifer and Missi Pyle.

5 Reasons Fry And Laurie Should Reunite

BBC

We Brits are known for our sense of class, or to be precise, upper class. Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry embody this stereotype beautifully, whether it’s stealing the spotlight from Rowan Atkinson in the various Blackadders, playing to their perceived personas in Jeeves and Wooster, or indulging in the middle class alternative to Bottom with their sketch show A Bit of Fry and Laurie.

It’s been two years since it was reported that the duo would be getting back together for a one-off adaptation of the Oscar Wilde novel The Canterville Ghost, but not a peep has been heard since then. But what I’m asking for here isn’t just a one off, I, and I’m sure many others included, wouldn’t mind something a bit more permanent.

Obviously, and sadly, the pair are in no position to warrant a substantial reunion. They’re both

Russian 'leaders' pitch projects to Rcf

Russian 'leaders' pitch projects to Rcf
31 projects were presented by nine Russian production houses at a pitching to the Russian Cinema Fund.

Russia’s answer to Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and an updated, Russian-set adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost were among the 31 film projects presented by nine Russian production houses - the so-called ‘leaders’ - at a pitching to the Russian Cinema Fund (Rcf) this week.

An expert committee gave each of the 31 projects a rating, but the final decision on how much production support - and whether it is a subsidy or conditionally repayable loan - will be decided by the Rcf later in the year.

Sergey Selyanov’s St Petersburg-based Ctb is behind the “first Russian space thriller”, Salyut 7, which would be based on the true story of the rescue mission for the orbital station in 1985. The film is budgeted at RUB320m and Ctb is looking to receive RUB150m from the Cinema Fund.

Neil Gaiman on his first videogame, Wayward Manor

News Ryan Lambie 26 Jul 2013 - 09:57

American Gods and Sandman writer Neil Gaiman's launching his first game, the spooky, quirky Wayward Manor...

Author Neil Gaiman needs little introduction, thanks to his wonderful comics and books, such as American Gods, The Sandman and Coraline, and his screenwriting work on shows like Neverwhere and Doctor Who. Imagine how pleased we are, then, to learn that Gaiman's striking out into the interactive medium, and that Wayward Manor is to be his first videogame creation.

Developed in conjunction with The Odd Gentlemen, an indie studio who you might know for The Misadventures Of Pb Winterbottom, Wayward Manor is set in a 1920s mansion, and casts the player in the role of a ghost. Perhaps taking inspiration from the Oscar Wilde short story The Canterville Ghost, the player's job is to scare all the obnoxious residents of the mansion out of their wits - and,
