Mark Millar Confirms Oscar-Winning Writer For WB Nemesis Movie

Comic book superstar Mark Millar – creator of Kick-Ass, Jupiter’s Legacy, The Secret Service & Kingsman – has confirmed to retailer Forbidden Planet that Emerald Fennell – winner of the 2021 Oscar for Original Screenplay (Promising Young Woman) – will pen the script for Millar’s hotly-anticipated Warner Bros adaptation of his critically acclaimed comic book, Nemesis.

Speaking exclusively to Forbidden Planet TV, Millar said: “Emerald Fennell, who just won an Oscar for best screenplay for Promising Young Woman, has just delivered the latest draft of the Nemesis screenplay, which is extremely cool, especially after the initial development of the movie by the late Tony Scott, who established some amazing visual ideas for the movie!”

Nemesis is a tale of one man with a plan for vengeance! Who is Nemesis? He is a son of privilege, an inheritor of billions from his deceased parents. He owns a fleet of the finest cars and a hangar full of planes, and has countless technological gadgets at his command. He’s the ultimate super-villain fighting relentlessly for a nihilsitic cause in which he believes.

Forbidden Planet TV host Andrew Sumner said: “This interview with Mark Millar is another example of the pop culture status that enables Forbidden Planet to attract high-profile creatives from the comic book and entertainment industry, whether it’s for an interview for our newly-launched online TV show, a store signing or an exclusive edition. Fans won’t want to miss out on this special interview, as Millar introduces his new Netflix show Jupiter’s Legacy, chats about a new Netflix spy show he’s developing, previews the latest Kingsman movie and reveals an all-new anime adaption of his comic book Supercrooks.”

“The Garcias” Formerly Known as “The Brothers Garcia” Gets 10-Episode Reboot to Air on HBO MAX

Pre-Production Starts Now with New Cadence Productions

New Cadence Productions (NCP) announced today that they will re-boot the hit series “The Brothers Garcia” with “The Garcias,” featuring the entire original cast who are all grown up with diverse families of their own.

The original series “The Brothers Garcia” ran on Nickelodeon for 50 episodes from 2000-2004. It also aired in 40+ countries around the world. The new series will be shot in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, specifically in a town called Puerto Aventuras, as well as in eco-theme parks Xcaret, Xplor and Xel-Ha. These four locations will add a unique production value to the show.

“The Garcias” is a slice of life of an American family that just happens to be Latino. By shooting the show in San Antonio, Texas and Mexico, the series juxtaposes an American Latino family in Mexico.

“We want audiences to see that we are totally American and part of the ‘new mainstream,’” exclaimed NCP Partner and show creator Jeff Valdez. “There are no themes of narcos, border walls, gang bangers or maids anywhere in this series – a fact that we are very proud of and hope that Hollywood will follow suit. We are extremely proud of the fact that this show will easily achieve 90+% positive Latino inclusion both in front of and behind the camera.”

“We are excited to be partnering with WarnerMedia, who believes in the project and ordered 10 episodes,” states Sol Trujillo, NCP Partner and global media-communications and technology icon. “The themes of our new series are aspirational and universal. “The Garcias” will be in English and, of course, every episode will end with the trademark, ‘Todo para la familia,’ which means ‘Everything for the family.’”x

Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys Will Debut On August 28 With A Diabolical Look Back On Season One And Continue With Each New Episode Starting September 4.

Amazon Studios today announced it has officially ordered a third season of its hit series The Boys, co-produced with Sony Pictures Television, ahead of its highly anticipated second season debut on September 4. The announcement was made today during The Boys Comic-Con@Home Panel. Additionally, it was revealed that Emmy Award-winning host Aisha Tyler will serve as host and executive producer of the official The Boys aftershow Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. In each episode of Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys, members of the cast, creative team and other special guests will join Tyler as they dissect the events that unfold in each episode.

“Amazon, in a bold and historic push to expand their ‘weirdo’ demographic, has greenlit Season 3 of The Boys! The writers and I are hard at work in the (virtual) writer’s room and we’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material. We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that’s up to a microscopic virus,” said showrunner and executive producer Eric Kripke. “As if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing you a Season 2 after show, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Double entendre intended. Hosted by the incomparable Aisha Tyler and guest starring the cast and crew, it’s a deep dive into how we make this insane thing. Seriously, thanks to Sony, Amazon and the fans. We love making this show so much, and we’re thrilled we get to make more.”

“Eric Kripke and the incredible cast of The Boys continue to deliver a wild and action-packed series full of surprises and can’t-miss moments that have made the series a global hit,” said Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We couldn’t be more excited to see where Eric takes The Boys and The Supes in Season 3, and to have Aisha Tyler join The Boys family as the host of Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys.”
