La película TAKEN, protagonizada por el actor Liam Neeson como un empleado de la CIA retirado, será llevado a la pantalla chica en la forma de una precuela que sigue la historia cuando este agente era joven y que ya ha encargado la cadena NBC.

La serie ha recibido un encargo directo por parte de NBC que no ha querido pasar por la fase de piloto. Según informa Deadline, la serie de Taken será una precuela de la primera película, escrita y dirigida por Luc Besson en 2008.

En la serie se centrarán en un joven Bryan Mills, el personaje que interpretaba Liam Neeson en las películas, y en cómo adquiere su “conjunto muy particular de habilidades” y se convierte en el personaje representado en la película. Sin embargo, la ficción televisiva se establecerá en la actualidad y no en el pasado.

De momento se busca no sólo al actor que represente el papel principal en la pequeña pantalla sino también al guionista que escriba la serie y a un productor. Se desconoce el número de episodios que NBC ha ordenado para la nueva serie. La nueva serie de la NBC contaría con Luc Besson (el creador de las cintas) como el productor.

La primera película de Taken recaudó 226.8 millones de dólares en todo el mundo y convirtió casi por sorpresa a Neeson en una estrella de acción a sus 50 años. Esto dio lugar a dos secuelas, Taken 2 y Tak3n, que se estrenaron en 2012 y 2015 respectivamente.

Gabriel O. Maldonado Valentín (thedirektor) es un Director Creativo Digital con más de diez años en el campo de medios, publicidad y producción donde ha tenido la oportunidad de trabajar con distintas marcas y empresas reconocidas a nivel local como internacional.

It’s expected that Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as Loki.

Loki

Disney is on the verge of unleashing their streaming service. And to do so they want to start with a bang. This is why the monumental company will be preparing a few tv series based on some the most recognized characters from de MCU.

The reports details that since the Avengers have gotten their own movies (like Iron Man and Captain America) they will not be featured in the series. The focus will be shifting towards characters who have served as second tier characters in the MCU.

According to Variety, Disney is in early development of an ambitious plan for a number of limited series. These series will likely include shows focused on Loki and the Scarlet Witch. Other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies will follow.

Right off the bat one of the burning questions is if the actors that portrayed them on the big screen will be on these series. The answer so far is yes. Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen will be reprising their roles of Loki and Scarlet Witch.

Scarlett Witch

Scarlet Witch will be another familiar face that will get her own t.v. series.

Details on how these series will unfold have not been mentioned but each series is expected to include six to eight episodes.

On the streaming service, the company has kept the details of the service close to the chest. The only thing that they’ve been very vocal about is that it will likely cost less than Netflix. This will probably be an introductory price as they’ll rise slowly.

The launch date will be at some point in late 2019.

Marvel Studios will produce all the shows. Also, Kevin Feige, the head studios mastermind, is expected to be hands-on on the development.

ABC is working on a comedy inspired by Crazy Rich Asians

ABC is looking to ride the Crazy Rich Asians wave of success.

Crazy Rich Asians

ABC is looking to ride the Crazy Rich Asians wave of success.

Thanks to the massive hit film Crazy Rich Asians, ABC is trying to ‘get a piece of that pie’. The network is looking to make a comedy series based on the recent romantic comedy. The hit film is based on the book by the same name.

ABC has handed out a script-plus-penalty commitment for an untitled comedy from writer Jessica Gao. This writer recently took home the best animated program Emmy for writing the “Pickle Rick” episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty.

According to the report the show will be a single camera one. It was pitched with the title Lazy Rich Asians and revolves around Janet Zhao. She is a first-generation Chinese-American woman who struggles to set healthy boundaries with her crazy, exhausting family.

When her wealthy grandmother dies and names Janet the sole inheritor, she suddenly finds herself the unwilling new matriarch of the family. The same relatives she’s spent her life trying to keep at a distance.

“There are [Asian-centric] projects in development right now, but they’re not going to greenlight these things unless our movie does well. If our movie does well, four projects will go into production or at least get greenlighted within three weeks. If it doesn’t, they’re going to be in unknown states, and that’s scary,” said Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu in an intreview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Crazy Rich Asians

The t.v. project comes thanks to the success that the film itself has in a matter of weeks.

Crazy Rich Asians has done more than well.

The order for the comedy comes as Crazy Rich Asians has defied box-office expectations. The rom-com has grossed more than $164.3 million worldwide (with $135.8 million of that domestically). The budget for the movie was $30 million.

Gao will pen the script and executive produce the CBS Television Studios and Imagine TV effort. She will do so alongside the latter company’s Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Samie Kim Falvey.

The is no word yet for when the project could see the light of day.
