A couple of days ago "True Blood" star Stephen Moyer insinuated that there may be a True Blood movie in the cards. Once word of that started rumbling, we knew that it wouldn't be long until HBO addressed the rumor. Read on for details.
Buzzfeed reached out to HBO for a response and were met with a resounding, “We have nothing at all to confirm.” Consider that neither a confirmation nor a denial, but it sounds as if things are leaning more to the NO side of the fence.
"True Blood" returns for its farewell season in June 2014.

Back in October, BBC America greenlit its new original thriller series "Intruders," penned by Glen Morgan, and now some casting news has come along with the announcement of a pair of directors whose works are quite familiar to horror fans.
From the Press Release:
Acclaimed British actor John Simm (pictured) will lead the cast of BBC AMERICA’s new original series "Intruders" produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. The casting marks Simm’s return to BBC AMERICA, where he starred in hit series "Life on Mars," "State of Play," and "Doctor Who."
From writer and executive producer Glen Morgan ("The X-Files") and based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel The Intruders, the series is a contemporary, chilling paranormal drama set in the moody Pacific Northwest. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple storylines – a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run – begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature.
Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Exists) and Daniel Stamm (13 Sins, The Last Exorcism) have been tapped to direct the series, which is executive produced by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner for BBC Worldwide Productions and begins production this winter.
Simm stars as Jack Whelan, a Los Angeles cop turned writer who has escaped a dark, violent past for a seemingly quiet life with his wife, Amy. When Amy goes missing, Jack is plunged into an investigation that forces him to confront the sins of his past and reexamine the very foundations he’s built his life upon.
John Simm commented: “After reading Glen Morgan’s brilliant script, I knew I couldn’t pass up the chance to play this complex character. It is also a great opportunity to reunite with Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner and with BBC AMERICA.”
Glen Morgan added: “I am thrilled to be working with John Simm, one of the UK’s most exciting talents, on the realization of Michael Marshall Smith’s novel. The BBC has always broken new ground in this genre, and I look forward to playing a part in that tradition. Together with directors Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Stamm, we plan to put a whole new spin on 'creepy'.”

The 2014 TCA (Television Critics Assn.) Winter Tour is in process so expect to see lots of TV news over the coming days until it winds down January 23rd. Today, during the Sundance Channel's presentation, it was revealed that "The Returned" will be... returning!
Per THR, the AMC Networks-owned cabler has acquired U.S. broadcast rights for the eight-episode sophomore season from Zodiak Rights. The currently in the works new season of the critically acclaimed and International Emmy Award-winning "The Returned (Les Revenants)" will air in late 2014.
“Sundance Channel is becoming a go-to network for quality scripted television that's a little bit different to what's airing elsewhere. And 'The Returned' has proven to be an incredible addition to our slate," said Sarah Barnett, president and GM at Sundance Channel. "We were delighted with the overwhelming critical and fan response to the series, and we expect that Season Two will continue to seduce and chill audiences."
Last September, A&E and "Bates Motel" executive producer Carlton Cuse teamed up to adapt a U.S. version so we'll be keeping our ears open for more about that as well.
"The Returned" takes place in an idyllic French mountain town, where a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they don’t know yet is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality. But it seems they are not the only ones to have returned from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past.
During a recent interview actor Sam Neill spoke out about whether or not he'd be returning as Dr. Alan Grant for Jurassic World if given the opportunity. Fans hoping for a resounding 'YES' to that question are in for a disappointment.
"Look, you never say no," Neill answered. "I think there’s a whole new cast and a whole new look at things, and I think that’s great. As I said, I’d never say no, but I wish them… well, I’m sure it’s going to be great, but they don’t need me."
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, and Nick Robinson are in various stages of talks to star. Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) penned the script with Derek Connolly and will direct the film. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is known that Robinson would play Simpkins’ older brother.
Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Pat Crowley will produce Jurassic World, which is set to begin filming in early 2014. The dinosaurs will hit theaters June 12, 2015.
We'll have more as it comes.
Well, it was inevitable, right? Anytime something gets incredibly popular, there's always a spoof waiting in the wings somewhere. That being said, are you cats ready to sink your teeth into Walking with the Dead?
According to Coming Soon, Jacqui Holland (Stretch, My Best Friend's Girl), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), Joey Oglesby (Fruitvale Station), Sophia Ali (The Longshots), and Tim Ogletree (Supernatural Activity) have joined the cast of the flick, a spoof of AMC's popular series "The Walking Dead."
The project, currently filming in San Antonio, Texas, is based on an original script by Ogletree and directed by Scott Dow. It's described as follows:
A month into the zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors, including four who "for safety reasons" go by the names of their favorite cities--Green Bay, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Harlem; a sheriff fresh off a nice, relaxing six-week coma; his small-business-owner 10-year-old son; and a voiceover-prone zombie who has convinced the group that he's not dead, just a little slow, are forced from the safety of their mall-camp in hopes of finding a rumored safe haven.
