Amazon has officially announced a Blade Runner sequel series is in the works.The series, titled Blade Runner 2099, will serve as a sequel to both the original 1982 film and its 2017 sequel, Blade Runner 2049, which was directed by Denis Villeneuve.Ridley Scott, who directed the original film, will serve as an executive producer on the series, with Silka Luisa (Shining Girls) on board as showrunner.The show was originally revealed to be in development back in February, although Amazon has now given the series the green light.Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, said: “The original Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott, is considered one of the greatest and most influential science-fiction movies of all time, and we’re excited to introduce Blade Runner 2099 to our global Prime Video customers.“We are honoured to be able to present this continuation of the Blade Runner franchise, and are confident that by teaming up with Ridley, Alcon Entertainment, Scott Free Productions, and the remarkably talented Silka Luisa, Blade Runner 2099 will uphold the intellect, themes, and spirit of its film predecessors.”Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, co-founders of Alcon Entertainment, said: “We are delighted to continue our working relationship with our friends at Amazon. And we are beyond excited to continue to extend the Blade Runner canon into a new realm with the provocative storyline that Silka has created.“Audiences first discovered Ridley Scott’s brilliant vision for Blade Runner 40 years ago, and since then, it has become one of the most influential science-fiction films of all time.

My Policeman starring Harry Styles and Emma Corrin – check it out below.Based on the novel by Bethan Roberts, My Policeman is a romance drama set in 1950s Brighton about a love triangle between gay policeman Tom Burgess (Styles), his wife Marion Taylor (Corrin) and his lover Patrick Hazlewood (David Dawson).The film, directed by Michael Grandage, also flashes forwards to the 1990s, with older versions of the characters played by Linus Roache, Gina McKee and Rupert Everett respectively.The trailer sets up the forbidden love triangle at play, soundtracked by Cat Power’s ‘Sea Of Love’.A synopsis reads: “A beautifully crafted story of forbidden love and changing social conventions, My Policeman follows three young people – policeman Tom, teacher Marion and museum curator Patrick – as they embark on an emotional journey in 1950s Britain.“Flashing forward to the 1990s, Tom, Marion and Patrick are still reeling with longing and regret, but now they have one last chance to repair the damage of the past.”My Policeman has been adapted by screenwriter Ron Nyswaner, known for his work on films like Freeheld and Showtime series Ray Donovan. Grandage, Michael Riley McGrath and Caroline Levy serve as executive producers.The film marks the latest acting role for Styles, following appearances in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, Marvel’s Eternals and Don’t Worry Darling from director Olivia Wilde – which had its premiere earlier this month.My Policeman is set to have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, before its European premiere at the London Film Festival on October 15.The film is scheduled to be released in cinemas on October 21.

Lenny Henry on ‘Lord of the Rings’ series diverse cast: “People want to see themselves”
Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power star Lenny Henry has praised the series for its diverse cast.Henry, who plays Sadoc Burrows in the forthcoming Prime Video series rebooting the franchise, addressed the newfound inclusivity.“That’s to do with it being the 21st century; people want to see themselves,” the actor said in an interview with The Times.“Of course, if you go back, there’s going to be that thing that prevails because the books don’t say… although some of the characters are described as hard-skinned and darker in complexion… but that was then, this is now and we’re telling the story now.”Discussing the entertainment industry more broadly, Henry added: “I didn’t see anybody in charge of anything that looked like me for a very long time, so that is lonely.“You’ve got all of these people now saying the same things that I started saying in 2000, which is ,‘the industry needs to change and can it hurry up, please.’”Earlier this year, Lenny Henry said it was “interesting” to observe an apparent lack of “Black and brown faces” at Glastonbury festival as well as other UK events.A new trailer for The Rings Of Power was released last week, showcasing Middle-earth in its Second Age and teasing characters  including Galadriel, Elrond, High King Gil-galad and Celebrimbor.The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video from September 2.

‘The Boys’ season 4 adds Jeffrey Dean Morgan in unknown role
The Boys for Season 4 in a mystery role.Probably best known for his role as Negan in The Walking Dead, Morgan becomes the latest in an increasingly long line of former Supernatural stars to join the Amazon superhero series (per Variety), following Jensen Ackles (Dean) and Jim Beaver (Robert Singer).Morgan is currently starring on the 11th and final season of The Walking Dead, and is set to appear alongside Lauren Cohan, reprising her Walking Dead role as Maggie, on the upcoming spinoff series Isle Of The Dead.The actor has previously shown public enthusiasm for joining the show, going as far back as 2020 when The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke seemingly offered him a part in the third season.In a heartbeat!— Jeffrey Dean Morgan (@JDMorgan) January 16, 2020Last month (July 12), Kripke revealed that the final scene in The Boys season three was inspired by a quote from Donald Trump – season three spoilers ahead, of course.In the closing scene, Homelander (Anthony Starr) introduces his superpowered son Ryan to his supporters. When a protester yells and throws something at Ryan, Homelander kills him by splitting his head in half using his laser eyes.Speaking to Deadline, Kripke said: “It’s interesting that you bring up the quote about shooting a guy on Fifth Avenue because that was the original inspiration for that scene.
