Hide all your bunnies folks. It appears rabbit is back on the menu.

FOX is all about the reboots these days. Urban Cowboy, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen are just a few recents titles currently in development. The network now sets aim at the 1987 hit film, Fatal Attraction, as its new reboot project.

Deadline reports FOX, along with Paramount, is adapting the iconic thriller for an event TV series. Like the film, the drama will explore how a married man’s indiscretion comes back to haunt him. Mad Men’s Maria and Andre Jacquemetton are writing and executive producing the reboot.

The original film gave birth to several iconic moments. From the infamous bunny boiling scene to Glenn Close’s memorable ‘I will not be ignored‘ line, the movie was a huge influence for years to come. Check out some of the film’s most memorable scenes below.

Empire has just added another high-profile guest star to appear on the second season of the breakout FOX drama. Oscar winner Marisa Tomei joins the cast as a lesbian billionaire named Mimi Whiteman.

Deadline reports her character is “a demanding venture capitalist who becomes involved in Lyon family drama. A Forbes list billionairess, Mimi is a lover of hip hop music, social trends, high-end fashion and beautiful women.”

This isn’t the first time Tomei has appeared on a television series with a predominantly African-American cast. The 50-year-old was a series regular on the first season of The Cosby Show spinoff, A Different World. Loved her on that sitcom and was bummed when she left.

Tomei joins previously announced guest stars including Chris Rock, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz and Magic Mike’s Adam Rodriguez.

Excited to see Tomei face-off against Cookie and Lucious Lyon? Weigh in below.

Ryan Murphy recently warned fans not to get too attached to anyone on Scream Queens. The producer revealed that only four characters will survive the first season of the highly-anticipated FOX series. My money is on Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas and Lea Michele all biting the dust.

FOX just unveiled character portraits for fifteen cast members. From Emma Roberts’ menacing Chanel Oberlin and all her Chanel minions to Jamie Lee Curtis, all your potential victims are on display. Check out the photos below and weigh in on who you think will escape death.

Scream Queens premieres on September 22 on FOX. By all accounts of those who’ve seen it, the pilot seems to be another winner for Murphy. Hopefully, he can maintain it throughout the season.

FOX Developing Urban Cowboy TV Series

In: Donovan, Movies, Music

Normally, the idea of any remake nauseates me, especially when it involves a classic. However, this one actually has me excited. Instead of trying to recapture the magic at the box office, FOX is bringing Urban Cowboy to television.

The series will follow the star-crossed relationship of Sissy and Bud as it unfolds against the gritty backdrop of rodeos, oil refineries, line dancing clubs and other aspects of modern-day Texas.

Adapting the John Travolta and Debra Winger classic for the small screen is a brilliant idea. Reportedly, the network is eying the project as a possible companion series for their mega-hit Empire. Given that the film is equally memorable for its soundtrack, this is a match made in heaven.

Are you looking forward to this potential series? I am. It’s going to be Empire meets Dallas meets Nashville. Check out a few of the memorable tracks from the film. My favorite is the Boz Scaggs track written by a young David Foster.

In the words of Sean Connery himself from the original film, “I’m waiting to be impressed.” Though it recouped its budget and then some, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen left both critics and audiences unimpressed. Not surprisingly, a sequel was never produced.

There are reports now, though, that 20th Century Fox is rebooting the franchise based on Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s graphic novel of the same title.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, it’s sort of The Avengers but with literary icons from the Victorian era teaming up. Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dorian Gray, Mina Harker, Allan Ian Quatermain and more join forces to fight a common enemy. Connery, Peta Wilson, Shane West and Stuart Townsend starred in the 2003 film. Speaking of 007, the film was his final live-action film before retiring.

This isn’t the first time someone has attempted to resurrect The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen franchise. Back in 2013, FOX made a pilot commitment to create a TV series, but the network eventually passed.

Do you think a reboot will work? Did you watch the first film? Check out the original theatrical trailer below.

I believe I found my new greeting. Already, I greeted my friends with ‘hooker’ and now thanks to Ryan Murphy, I can call them idiots as well ;)

The first full official trailer for Scream Queens has finally arrived and it doesn’t disappoint. Regina George and the Plastics have nothing on Emma Robert’s uber bitchy character and her Heathers-like minions, The Chanels. Her sassy one-liners will make this horror-comedy hybrid must-watch television.

As if Hell Week wasn’t torture enough with all the hazing, the sorority is rocked when a devil-wearing killer commits a series of murders on campus. One poor pledge sadly meets her fate courtesy of a rogue lawnmower. LOL. Scream Queens will definitely be the watercooler show of the new season.

Roberts is joined by Jaime Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Oliver Hudson, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Skyler Samuels, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Lucien Laviscount, Glen Powell and guest stars Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas. Speaking of the latter two, I predict they meet their maker early, given that they’re not featured heavily in the trailer. Check it out below.
