American Gods Adds X-Files’ Gillian Anderson

THE NEW GODS ACQUIRE A SPOKESPERSON STARZ AND FREMANTLEMEDIA’S “AMERICAN GODS” ADDS GILLIAN ANDERSON

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green Serve as Showrunners

 

Starz and FremantleMedia North America (FMNA) announced today that Gillian Anderson (“The X-Files”) will play Media in the upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods.

Anderson plays Media, the mouthpiece for the New Gods, functioning as their public face and sales representative, by taking the form of various iconic celebrities. She lives off the attention and worship that people give to screens-to their laptops, their TVs, to their iPhones in their hands while they watch their TVs. Ever the perky spokesperson, and always in control, she spins stories in whatever direction best suits her.

An Emmy®, Golden Globe®and SAG® Award-winning actress, Gillian Anderson has long delighted audiences and critics alike with her versatile skills and classic beauty. Comfortable with any genre, from science fiction to period drama, Anderson will soon star in several prestigious projects on both stage and screen.

Anderson reprised her role as “Dana Scully” in the Fox cult-classic “The X-Files,” which premiered January, 2016. Anderson earned two Screen Actors Guild Awards, one Emmy® Award and one Golden Globe® Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series, and numerous nominations for her portrayal of Scully. She also recently appeared in the television mini-series “War and Peace” which aired this past January.

Anderson is currently in production on the third and final season of the critically acclaimed series “The Fall,” which will premiere this year.

Anderson reprised her role as “Blanche DuBois” in Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York with the original cast from the London production. Anderson “[gave] the performance of her career,” as Blanche DuBois, according to The Telegraph.

Anderson is currently in production on the third and final season of the critically acclaimed series “The Fall,” which will premiere this year.

“A Dream of Ice,” the second novel in Anderson’s science fiction saga, was published by Simon & Schuster in December 2015. The first novel in the saga, “A Vision of Fire,” was released in October 2014. Anderson co-writes the thriller series with New York Times bestselling author Jeff Rovin. Her next novel, co-written with journalist and activist Jennifer Nadel, entitled “We – A Manifesto for Modern Women,” will be released by HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster on March 8, 2017.

Additional television credits include “Hannibal,” the 2011 miniseries “The Crimson Petal and the White,” as well as the TV adaptation of William Boyd’s novel, “Any Human Heart,” which earned her a BAFTA TV Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as “The Duchess of Windsor.”

In film, Anderson was most recently seen in the human trafficking-themed movie “Sold,” executive-produced by Emma Thompson and directed by Jeffrey D. Brown. Previous film credits include the Richie Metha-directed science-fiction mystery I’ll Follow You Down, Sandra Nettelbeck’s romance Last Love, the James Marsh-directed thriller Shadow Dancer, L’Enfant d’en Haut (Sister), the second film directed and written by Ursula Meier and the 2011 British action comedy hit Johnny English Reborn. In 1998, Anderson played “Dana Scully” in the feature film The X Files: Fight The Future. She reprised the role in 2008’s The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

Anderson has also provided voices for two Hayao Miyazaki films, Princess Mononoke and From Up on Poppy Hill.

In 2009, Gillian portrayed “Nora” in Zinnie Harris’ adaptation of “A Doll’s House” at London’s Donmar Warehouse, for which she was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actress. She also was featured in the Royal Court’s Ian Rickson-directed production of Rebecca Gillman’s play “The Sweetest Swing In Baseball” in 2005 and she made her London stage debut in Michael Weller’s “What the Night Is For” in 2002.

After receiving her B.F.A. from the prestigious Goodman Theater School at Chicago’s DePaul University, she performed in the Manhattan Theater Club production of Alan Ayckborne’s “Absent Friends,” for which she won a Theatre World Award in 1991. In addition, she appeared in Christopher Hampton’s “The Philanthropist” at the Long Wharf Theater in New Haven, CT.

Over the last 15 years, Anderson has been strongly involved in many charity organizations: as a board member of Artists For A New South Africa, a spokesperson for Neurofibromatosis Inc., a founding member of South African Youth Education for Sustainability (SA-YES), an ambassador for Survival International and a patron of the Alinyiikira Junior School in Uganda, among many others. She remains outspoken about child and human trafficking and the impact of commercial fishing on deep sea life.

Anderson is represented by Michael Katcher of CAA.

American Gods has been translated into over 30 languages and earned numerous accolades including Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel. The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

“American Gods” is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal,” “Pushing Daisies,” “Heroes”) and Michael Green (“The River,” “Kings,” “Heroes”) are writers and showrunners. David Slade (“Hannibal,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) is directing the pilot and additional episodes. FMNA’s Craig Cegielski and Stefanie Berk are executive producing the series along with Fuller, Green, Slade and Neil Gaiman. Senior Vice Presidents of Original Programming Marta Fernandez and Ken Segna are the Starz executives in charge of “American Gods.” Starz retains all network pay TV and SVOD rights to the project. FremantleMedia is distributing the series worldwide.

Ian McShane Cast In Starz & Neil Gaiman’s American Gods

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:24588:]]

IAN MCSHANE CAST AS MR. WEDNESDAY IN STARZ AND FREMANTLEMEDIA’S “AMERICAN GODS”

The Golden Globe-winning Actor Will Play Mr. Wednesday in the Adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Blockbuster Fantasy Novel

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green Serve as Showrunners

 

Starz and FremantleMedia North America (FMNA) announced today that Ian McShane (“Deadwood,” “Ray Donovan”) has been cast as Mr. Wednesday in the upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods. The series will begin shooting in April.

Neil Gaiman said, “When you write a beloved character (beloved with, or despite, or because of all his faults) like Mr. Wednesday, you get to watch the internet trying to cast the role. I’ve seen a hundred names suggested, but few make me grin like Ian McShane does. I’ve already been lucky enough to have him in one film (he was bright blue in it, animated, and probably Polish). Now I count myself even luckier: he’s made the journey from ‘Lovejoy’ to ‘American Gods.’ Yesterday was Super Tuesday. Today is Wonderful Wednesday.”

Commented Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, “Actor. Icon. And now god. It is a goddamn delight to be collaborating with the incomparable Ian McShane — again and for the first time — on a story about faith and belief, with the utmost faith and belief in Mr. McShane as our Mr. Wednesday. A wonderful Wednesday indeed.”

Playing Mr. Wednesday, McShane joins Ricky Whittle, who was recently announced to play Shadow Moon in “American Gods.” Mr. Wednesday is a crafty and endlessly charismatic con man, full of perverse wisdom, curious magic, and grand plans. He hires ex-con Shadow Moon to be his bodyguard as he journeys across America, using his charms to recruit others like him as he prepares for the ultimate battle for power.

Acclaimed British actor McShane catapulted to American TV stardom by playing the ruthless frontier kingpin Al Swearengen on “Deadwood,” for which he was nominated for both Emmy and SAG Awards and won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Drama and the Television Critics Award for Individual Performance. He also starred in Starz’ “The Pillars of the Earth,” for which he received a Golden Globe Nomination for Best Actor in a Mini Series. Across film, he is best known for his portrayal as ‘Blackbeard” in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and as “Teddy Bass” Sexy Beast. Other television appearances have included “Ray Donovan,” “American Horror Story,” ““The West Wing” and “Lovejoy.” This year he will appear in “Game of Thrones” and “Dr. Thorne” and can be seen in the upcoming films John Wick: Chapter 2, The Hollow Point and Bolden. McShane is also an accomplished and award-winning stage actor appearing in productions on Broadway, in the West End and Los Angeles throughout his career.

Starz Holding Evil Dead Marathon Hosted By Bruce Campbell

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:22546:]]

Setting the stage for the premiere of the highly anticipated STARZ Original series Ash vs Evil Dead, Starz presents a marathon of the cult classic Evil Dead horror franchise on Friday, October 30 beginning at 8:00pm ET/PT hosted by Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell (Ash). The marathon will conclude with a sneak peek of the first episode of Ash vs Evil Dead at 12:15 a.m. ET/PT.

The Evil Dead marathon kicks off with the original 1981 cult classic, The Evil Dead at 8:00pm ET/PT on STARZ. This seminal horror movie features five friends who go to a cabin in the woods where they find unspeakable evil lurking in the forest. They discover the Necronomicon, the Book of the Dead, which when translated releases a legion of demons and spirits. In order to survive the night, Ash must do battle with the evil dead.

The marathon continues with the 1987 sequel, Evil Dead 2 at 9:30pm ET/PT. Ash, the lone survivor of the original demon attack, returns in the second chapter of the cult franchise. Armed with a chainsaw and a shotgun, he again must fight the evil dead when a group of strangers interrupt his romantic vacation in a lonely cabin in the woods.

The Evil Dead marathon concludes with the 1992 third installment, Army of Darkness at 10:55pm ET/PT and a sneak peek at the first episode of the STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” In Army of Darkness, our hero, Ash, is transported back in time to 1300 A.D. and once again faces off against the evil unleashed. In order to return to the present and get back home, he must take up his chainsaw and “boomstick” to defeat the Deadites and return the Necronomicon to its final resting place.

Fans will be encouraged to join the social media conversations throughout the night using #EvilDeadMarathon and other scene-specific hashtags that will appear within each movie.

For fans that can’t wait for the marathon, The Evil Dead is currently available on STARZ, STARZ PLAY and STARZ ON DEMAND and Evil Dead 2 will be available on STARZ PLAY and STARZ ON DEMAND from October 26 through October 30. Army of Darkness will be available on STARZ, STARZ PLAY and STARZ ON DEMAND beginning November 1.

Campbell reprises his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past; and Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.

Raimi directed the first episode of Ash vs Evil Dead that he wrote with Ivan Raimi (DarkmanArmy of DarknessDrag Me to Hell), and Tom Spezialy (“Chuck,” “Reaper,” “Desperate Housewives”). Raimi also serves as executive producer, with Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, “Spartacus,” Xena: Warrior Princess”) and Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) along with Craig DiGregorio (“Workaholics,” “Chuck”) who serves as executive producer/showrunner. Ivan Raimi serves as co-executive producer and Aaron Lam (“Spartacus”) and Chloe Smith (“Spartacus”) serve as producers.

Spartacus Actor Liam McIntyre Wants To Play New Batman

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:9654:]]

With Zack Snyder officially announcing the Batman Superman movie yesterday at Comic-Con, expect the flood gates to open in regards to who wants to play the next Caped Crusader.

Warner Bros. also officially released a statement that they will be casting a new Batman (if they haven’t already done so), and that The Dark Knight Trilogy director Christopher Nolan will be on board as executive producer.

So up first for wanting to play the new Batman is Liam McIntyre, known for the Starz original series Spartacus.

Liam McIntyre tweeted that it would be a dream come true to play Batman.

“Oh my god. So there’s going to be a new Batman,” the actor tweeted. “It’s time to dream big. Always be Batman.”

McIntyre then goes on to mention that, similar to Henry Cavill, he’s a big fan of World of Warcraft as well.

“In the world in my head where I do get cast, my main concern for Zack Snyder is that Batman and Superman would be playing WoW all day,” McIntyre added.

For those not in the known, when Henry Cavill got the original call from Zack Snyder stating he won the Superman role, Cavill ignored the call because he was too busy playing World of Warcraft.

The new Batman Superman movie, a sequel to Man of Steel, begins production next year with a 2015 release.
