++ With that being said however, hearing that not only has Bull been renewed for a second season but also that Eliza Dushku has been cast as a major role makes me incredibly happy. I've been enjoying this little show quite a bit, so I'm more than excited that she'll be a part of it.
++ Joss Whedon has been announced to direct a Batgirl movie. I, for one, am intrigued and excited by this prospect as I still enjoy most his work and I'm curious on how this will be done.
++ And finally we have the teaser trailer for the 2017 adaptation of Stephen King's IT. I'm half apprehensive and half cautiously optimistic about this. I have a fondness for the 90s television miniseries, it was creepy in its own right and had a great cast line-up including the iconic performance by Tim Curry as Pennywise, but I know that the miniseries was limited to what it was able to do during that time. This is less of a remake of that and more of a fresh adaptation of the classic horror novel itself, and just judging from this teaser alone I'm intrigued. It's been a while since I've reread the book, but I have to tell you, there are some pretty legit creepy things that happen in it, along with some bizarre and questionable content, so it makes me curious as to what makes it into this version and how far they might want to push the envelope.
Furthermore, apparently this will be split into two films, this first part will feature the kids, while the second will be with them as adults. I know many have been getting tired with this continuing trend of movies being split into two or more parts, however for something like IT this makes perfect sense. Both the book and the story is just too grand to be contained in a singular film. The miniseries did this by having their first part interweaving them as adults with flashbacks to what happened during their youth, with the second part solely focusing on them as adults. So this is also something I'm curious about regarding the narrative and direction.
