by munchman

  • Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi & Bruce Campbell (if you don’t know at least 2 our of these 3 names you shouldn’t be reading this anyway) are writing-developing a TV series based on the EVIL DEAD series of films. (And if that isn’t the most interesting thing the San Diego Comic Con has to offer so far, then what is? Huh? Huh? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Ha!)
  • Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD) is adapting his comic book Outcast for a Cinemax series. (And if that isn’t good news for exorcism lovers everywhere, then what is? Huh? Huh?)
  • Nick McDonell & John Dempsey (yer friendly neighborhood munchaddict never heard of ’em but the press releases says Nick’s a journalist and John’s a “politico”) have written an AMC pilot called WHITE CITY about the crap going down in Kabul, which is set to start shooting any second now. (And if that ain’t the best news in the world for right wing extremist war junkie fruitcakes, then what is?)
  • Big deal best-selling novelist James Patterson is adapting his thriller, Zoo, into a series for CBS. No pilot necessary on this one. It’s going straight to series. (And if that isn’t the the most exciting news any novelist with a few notches on his belt ever heard, than…well, you know the drill. As the munchman’s dear old daddy used to say, “Success brings success, kid, so keep on sucking!” Yeah, he was clever that way, he is.)
