Bethesda 'Absolutely' Looking Into Making NX Games

Bethesda 'Absolutely' Looking Into Making NX Games

Though Bethesda Softworks isn’t ready to make a definitive choice one way or the other, the company’s vice president Pete Hines says Bethesda is “absolutely” looking into the possibility of putting its games on Nintendo’s next console, the NX. Hines addressed the possibility of Bethesda’s projects appearing on the NX in an interview with IGN at QuakeCon, noting that Bethesda is talking with Nintendo “all the time” and is aware of what the company is doing. But that doesn’t mean the studio behind Fallout and The Elder Scrolls is ready to immediately jump on development for the NX, though. “Obviously we haven’t put anything out there ,” Hines said. “It’s absolutely something that we’re looking into and we’ll see what comes of it.” Continue reading…

Son of Zorn: How Roger Rabbit and Harry Potter are Inspirations

Son of Zorn: How Roger Rabbit and Harry Potter are Inspirations

FOX’s Son of Zorn — from The LEGO Movie/Han Solo Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller — is an inventive, live‑action/animated comedy following a cartoon warrior from a faraway island (voiced by Jason Sudeikis), who faces his most epic battle yet – returning to the O.C. to win back his ex‑wife (Cheryl Hines) and teenage son (Johnny Pemberton). Though Lord and Miller were unable to attend the Son of Zorn panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, executive producers Sally Bradford McKenna (The Grinder), Eric Appel (Silicon Valley), and Reed Agnew (Blunt Talk) were on hand to discuss the mix of live-action and animation and how the world of the show is similar to both Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and the Harry Potter films.

Donald Glover recently got to shoot two exciting projects in his home state: the upcoming Sony-Marvel collaboration Spider-Man: Homecoming, and his new FX comedy series, Atlanta.

When asked after his TCA panel for Atlanta what he could say about his role, Glover quickly zipped up. “I’m not allowed to say,” he hedged. “Sworn to secrecy.” Continue reading…

Donald Glover Explains Why He Didn't Return to Community

Donald Glover Explains Why He Didn't Return to Community

Donald Glover didn’t return for Community’s move to Yahoo Screen for Season 6, and it’s not a decision he regrets. While promoting his new series Atlanta at FX’s 2016 summer TCA press tour presentation, Glover explained why he opted not to reprise his role as Troy in the additional season of Community after its conclusion on NBC. “I just like endings,” he said. “I think everything should have death clauses in them. Humans have death clauses in them. One day Trump is going to die. That’s guaranteed. It’s important that thing end. I’m glad things end because it forces things to progress. I get really frustrated in the world that things could be better but can’t be better because they haven’t died yet.” Continue reading…

FXX Is Going to Push "Aggressively" Into Animation

FXX Is Going to Push "Aggressively" Into Animation

FXX is a network that is still discovering its identity, but FX CEO John Landgraf thinks it’s closer to finding it. Though FXX is the home to live action comedies including You’re the Worst, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Man Seeking Woman, the network has gotten its best buzz for its showcasing of animation. In 2014, FXX aired a 12-day chronological marathon of The Simpsons, and Archer is expected to move to FXX for Season 8 in January 2017. Landgraf explained during his 2016 summer TV Critics’ Association press tour executive session that he is going to have FXX push “aggressively” into animation, even though some of the network’s previous attempts haven’t panned out as well as expected.
