A Super Acting Job!

Arthur Corber has booked a role on CW’s upcoming series, Superman & Lois.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s — another Arrowverse series. The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, Black Lightning, and Stargirl will need to make room for another show joining the Arrowverse: Superman and Lois.

Created by former Flash showrunner Todd Helbing, the Supergirl spin-off puts Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) and Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) front and center as they juggle parenthood with demanding jobs. Balancing saving the world with tight newspaper deadlines and raising rambunctious twin boys is sure to keep this dynamic duo on their toes, setting the stage for an interesting journey ahead. And given everything they went through in last year’s crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, we’re hoping life in Smallville won’t be quite as traumatic.

“I think as a father who happens to have two boys, that felt like a really great way to bring in some personal experience and just to tell really a different story,” said Todd Helbing at DC’s Fandome.

The series will follow the famed superhero and renowned journalist as they deal with the stress and complications that come with being working parents in today’s world.




Superman & Lois
premieres January 2021 and will air Tuesdays at 9 pm EST following The Flash.

Don’t sit this one out!

Kris Kuruneri and Jake Sheardown have booked roles on season 2 episode #207 of Disney Channel’s series, ‘Gabby Duran and The Unsittables‘.

Season 2 of Gabby Duran& The Unsittables was officially announced by Variety on October 7th, 2019 ahead of the series premiere. The season will premiere in 2021. Production began on January 28, 2020, but was halted due to COVID-19, later resumed on October 2, 2020, and is scheduled to wrap March.

Gabby Duran and The Unsittables is Disney’s beloved sci-fi comedy series, created by Mike Alber and Gabe Snyder. Its first season opened to positive reviews from fans. The premise is outrageously ridiculous but is packed with tons of humor to keep viewers entertained.

Gabby Duran” stars young singer and actress Kylie Cantrall as a 13-year-old who moves to a new town and winds up with an unusual babysitting job, looking after a group of extraterrestrial children hiding out on earth and posing as everyday kids.

Gabby Duran & The Unsittables’ gives us a bold new heroine, brought to life by the incredibly talented Kylie Cantrall and our top-notch creative team led by showrunners Mike Alber and Gabe Snyder,” said Kory Lunsford, Disney Channel’s vice president of current series.

“We like to do comedy with a high-concept hook to it,” Alber said. “It’s fun to explore these classic coming of age stories but different than you’ve seen before, so we can put a twist on it.”

The series is based on the novel “Gabby Duran & the Unsittables”, written by Elise Allen and Daryle Conners. In adapting the book, Snyder said the character became a lot less responsible, but has an edge that still makes her the ideal candidate to look after a group of misfit alien kids.

“If it’s a comedy about someone watching kids, you need them to not be very good at watching kids,” he said. “Disney has been very supportive. They’ve let us keep a little bit of edge to Gabby.”

The season will premiere in 2021.

‘PACE’ YOURSELVES!

Naika Toussaint and Lisa Huynh have finished shooting roles in the upcoming feature film, ‘Change of Pace’.

Director: Shel Piercy

Change of Pace is an all-Canadian motion picture, set and filmed in the city of Penticton. The production is inspired by a 60-minute, Super-8 film that Suitcase Charlie Films owner Graham Fraser and Mike Drinkwater shot in their final year of high school in 1980. Now, nearly 40 years later, Fraser’s son, Luke Fraser, has written a new script, partnering with the pair to re-envision the original screenplay.

Toronto native Eric McCormack will star in the film.

Change of Pace is a love letter to Canada. It is a modern, coming-of-age film that pays homage to the 80’s with a quirky, and relatable, cast of characters. The film encompasses the appreciation of Penticton, B.C. and the charm and community it offers; including the breathtaking beauty of the Okanagan landscape, which stands out as its own character in the film.

The film’s narrative follows Mike Freshwater, an awkward high school student having trouble fitting in during his final year at Penticton Secondary School. His offbeat father, Hank, spends more time defrauding the government than paying attention to his son. Mike’s lack of direction takes a turn when he meets Wallace, a reserved new kid from Toronto. As graduation nears, Wallace helps Mike train for an annual, cross-country race, while Mike guides Wallace through an unfamiliar, small-town environment.

Directing the feature will be Canadian Stephen Campanelli, who has a lengthy history working with Clint Eastwood that earned him the nickname “Clint’s Eye“.

In 2015, Campanelli made his directorial debut with the action film Momentum, filmed in South Africa and featuring Morgan Freeman.

“We are truly honoured to have a director of this caliber at the helm of Change of Pace and know that Stephen will capture the true essence of hope and resilience at the heart of this story,” Fraser said.

Storyline:
In this teen grad dramedy, Mike Freshwater, with no particular athletic skills and no prospects for university, is desperately in love with Danielle (Danny), the prettiest and most unattainable girl in his class. With the help of his new-found friend Wallace, a sensible girl with huge smarts, he pits himself against Danny’s boyfriend, the school jock who wins everything, in the final Runner’s Challenge of the graduating class.

That “Piercing” Look…

Kurt Ostlund returns in Season 2 of Snowpiercer.

Snowpiercer kicked off New York Comic Con with a (virtual) bang, revealing the Season 2 release date and a new trailer during the show’s panel on October 8, 2020.
Season 2 will premiere Monday, January 25th 2020 at 9 PM on TNT Drama.

The show is based on both the 2013 South Korean–Czech film of the same name, directed by Bong Joon-ho, and the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, from which the film was adapted, by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette.

The dystopian drama follows the survivors of a cataclysmic weather event who are rigidly separated into classes on a 1,001-car, high-speed train that endlessly circles a frozen world.

The political environment and the questions that are being raised in the show, reflect questions we are asking ourselves now in terms of how we run a just society, how democracy works, where it doesn’t work, themes of social justice and injustice. A lot of those things in the current milieu are reflected in the show.

The second season of the post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller will follow the revolution’s survivors, led by Layton (Daveed Diggs), as they attempt to maintain peace among the recently merged classes. But an emerging power struggle threatens the already-fragile ecosystem.
