    Thanks to iZombie_Fan for the heads up.

    The Lifetime series is currently producing a spinoff about Breeda Wool‘s Season 1 character, according to co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro.

    “Faith is a character we all fell in love with. She was a closeted Christian lesbian from Mississippi, who’s someone I’m very passionate about,” Shapiro told USA Today. “We pick up with her, and she has a Wrangler-type denim endorsement deal. She and her longtime love, Amy, move to L.A., which is very accepting of their lifestyle.”

    The spinoff will take the form of 10 webisodes, slated to debut later this year.

  • 09:40 - Legends of Tomorrow - Phil Klemmer interview
    Thanks to Ivan for the heads up.
    What is it that makes Vandal Savage such an appealing villain?

    Klemmer: Ultimately, getting at his rationale and understanding that he's not just subjugating mankind. He views himself as like a beneficent dictator. He sees what he's doing as integral to the survival of human kind. He's crazy as a s--thouse rat. He's totally out of his mind. He's totally cruel and sadistic. He's got a Messiah complex. Once we get into his underlying logic for why he's doing what he's doing, that's a super interesting turn we can reach by the end of the season. Even though he's immortal, he's still a human being and he has his reasons that are more than just, "to rule the world!" A good bad guy is when you don't have to love them, but you can understand them.

    Rip Hunter is assembling the team, but how much action is he going to see once the team is together?
    Klemmer: In Episode 3, we will flash back to a Rip back story. Like all things Rip, he only tells our heroes as little as they need to know. We will realize he's made a run at Vandal Savage before without our heroes and that run ended rather badly. We'll sort of answer the question of why he needed a team to do this. We'll see how he failed as an individual and his reasons revealed in the pilot aren't as altruistic as he makes them out to be. He has selfish and personal reasons for [going after Vandal]. In his mind, he thought this was going to be a two-hour movie.

    How much can we expect The Flash and Arrow to be intermingled with Legends this season, especially considering the time travel component?
    Klemmer: They have to produce their own shows so we can't borrow them willy-nilly, but hopefully we will see past and future incarnations of familiar faces. We will let our Legends delve into their own pasts and try to make changes, like we all would if we had the chance to go back in time and interact with our former selves. We'll also get to go to the future and see the consequences of removing ourselves from the time line.

    Captain Cold and Heatwave are the only two non-traditional "heroes" going into this series. How long will they battle with that identity crisis?
    Klemmer: I think they'll settle at different rates. It's interesting because it provides a source of conflict between those two. In the pilot, they are sort of a united front. They're partners. They're villains and everyone else is a goody, goody two shoes. Gradually, Leonard Snart (Miller) is able to evolve a little more quickly. The fact that this partnership, these two guys that only trust each other, are having to let themselves become encompassed by a team provides a source of conflict. The "bromance" of Rory (Purcell) and Snart is some juicy stuff. They're like an old married couple.

    The producing team has been very clear that this is the cast they want to stick with, but is there room to invite someone like Constantine or other DC superheroes into the fold even if you aren't replacing the whole team?
    Klemmer: There is definitely room. This season is meant to be a chapter in the anthology. We have no idea where we want to leave things after this season. Our team can have new members. It can have missing members. It can have people who switch sides. That's the great thing about this show. Season 2 is not meant to be a pressing of the reset button. We want to burn through all of the possible story we can here. We want to make sure that we can never go home again, that the dynamics of this season will be irrevocably changed. Our team for Season 2, if not in the [physical] makeup of the team, will be changed in the way that [the characters] will be different [people]. Season 1 is meant to be standalone. We want to leave everything on the field and figure Season 2 out later.

  • 21:10 - Arq - Netflix Announces Time Travel Film Starring Rachael Taylor and Robbie Amell
    Thanks to DarthLocke4 for the heads up.
    Robbie Amell and Rachael Taylor, known to fanboys for their work on comic book shows The Flash and Jessica Jones, respectively, have teamed up to star in Arq, a sci-fi thriller that will be released by Netflix.

    Lost City and XYZ Films are producing the low-budget pic, which was written and is being directed by Tony Elliott. Elliott knows a thing or two about sci-fi drama having been a story editor and writer on BBC America’s acclaimed show Orphan Black.

    Arq is a post-apocalyptic thriller set in the near future when the oil supply has run dry. Trapped in a house and surrounded by a gang of mysterious masked intruders, an engineer (Amell) must protect a technology that could deliver unlimited energy and end the wars that have consumed the world. The only problem is that the technology has created a time loop that condemns him and his friends all to relive the same day over and over.

    The movie is set to begin shooting this winter in Toronto.

  • 20:00 - Chicago Fire - Season 4 - Brandon Jay McLaren to Recur / Devious Maids - Season 4 - Ryan McPartlin to Recur
    Graceland alum, Brandon Jay McLaren has joined Dick Wolf’s hit NBC drama series Chicago Fire in a recurring role. He’ll play a former gangbanger-turned-politician. McLaren played Dale Jakes on all three seasons of USA Network’s Graceland. He also recurred on AMC’s The Killing and Canadian series Being Erica. On the film side, he appeared in horror comedy feature Tucker And Dale Vs. Evil. McLaren is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, Berwick & Kovacik and Trisko Talent Management.

    Ryan McPartlin has signed on for a recurring role in the fourth season of Lifetime’s soapy mystery drama series Devious Maids. McPartlin will play Kyle, a sweet, fun, and impossibly sexy new neighbor. He’s basically every woman’s fantasy except for one small catch — he has an unusually close relationship with his mother. McPartlin, repped by Primary Wave Entertainment and Gersh, most recently starred opposite Mayim Bialik in Lifetime’s The Flight Before Christmas, and is best known for his series regular role as Captain Awesome on NBC’s Chuck. Feature credits include The Right Kind Of Wrong and J.Edgar.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
