Kevin Bacon says the 'Tremors' reboot is heading to SyFy channel
“We are going to do a pilot for Syfy,” the Footloose and Diner star told Screen while at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where he was attending a screening of Story Of A Girl, in which he co-stars.
Bacon originally approached Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum, whose horror credits include Paranormal Activity and Insidious, with the idea of reviving cult comedy-horror Tremors as a feature film, but the project is now being developed as an eight-episode TV series, which Bacon will star in and produce.
He will again be playing Valentine McKee, the Nevada handyman who tussles with gigantic man-eating sandworms. »

Pretty Little Liars: 20 Couples Ranked From Grossest to Greatest
If there’s one thing Pretty Little Liars enjoys serving up more than red herrings, it’s problematic pairings.
The fact is, even the Freeform drama’s most beloved pairings have had to weather more scandals and hardships than the average real-life relationship could ever survive — you know, unless teacher-student hookups, forced inseminations and mental asylum-based affairs are more common than I give them credit for.

Alec Baldwin Confirms Return To ‘Saturday Night Live’ As Donald Trump
Political satire has had to do a lot of heavy lifting lately, but audiences can sleep a little easier knowing Alec Baldwin will return his Donald Trump impression to “Saturday Night Live” in the fall. “Yeah, we’re going to fit that in. I think people have enjoyed it,” Baldwin told CNN, adding that the number of Trump sketches will be fewer than audiences might expect. “There will be a couple celery sticks of that every now and then. But not a whole meal.”
The actor had previously been cagey about whether he could make an “SNL” appearance work with his busy fall schedule. In March, he thought fans might be tiring of the popular impression: “I don’t know how much more people can take it.”

President Trump Bashes CNN as Video Surfaces of Producer Criticizing Russia Coverage
President Trump renewed his attack on CNN as “fake news” on Tuesday morning after conservative provocateur James O’Keefe released a video of a man believed to be CNN producer John Bonifield criticizing the cabler’s coverage of Trump’s ties to Russia.
Early Tuesday, Trump suggested in a tweet that “Fake News CNN” was in for a management shakeup. The video released by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas features a nine-minute discussion with a man identified as Bonifield, supervising producer of the CNN Health unit, in which Bonifield criticizes CNN’s heavy focus on the probe into the Trump administration’s connection to Russian officials.
Bonifield describes the Trump-Russia story as “mostly bulls—” and said the coverage was driven by the desire for ratings. He also says that Trump is “probably right” to describe the media’s focus on Russia’s ties to his administration as a “witch hunt.” Bonifield »

David Tennant on Why ‘Broadchurch’ Is Like Nothing Else on TV, And Why He’s Glad It Has An Ending
Of all the roles that David Tennant has played, Detective Inspector Alec Hardy in “Broadchurch” is perhaps the least likely to be associated with a catchphrase — and yet he has one. Or, at the very least, he acknowledges that when you think of Hardy, you think of him shouting “Millah!” in a strong Scottish accent.
It has significance to this reporter, given my byline, which was something I mentioned to Tennant when we spoke about the third and final season of the ultra-serious drama series. “I’m delighted,” he said when I told him how much I enjoyed the “Millah!” meme. “People shout it at me in the streets sometimes, actually,” Tennant said. “Which is a bit odd because it’s not actually my name. But it obviously pleases people for some reason.”

James Corden’s Production Company Preps ‘Bros’ Feature Documentary
Fulwell 73, the U.K. producer that makes the “Late Late Show” and now counts James Corden as one of its partners, is making “Bros,” a feature doc about the British boyband, which shot to fame in the 1980s and is reforming this year.
The documentary film will be financed by Lorton Entertainment and directed by by Fulwell 73’s David Soutar (“Harry Styles Behind The Music”). It will track the highs and lows of the band, from their breakout success, to family tragedy, and internal bust-ups.

Fox’s $14.9 billion Sky Deal Cleared in Ireland, U.K. Announcement Imminent
With a decision from U.K. authorities on 21st Century Fox’s proposed £11.7 billion ($14.9 billion) takeover of Sky imminent, Ireland has given the deal a green light.
Fox wants to fully acquire Sky, buying the shares in the European pay TV operator that it does not already own. It needed approval for the deal in all of the territories in which it operates, and has now had that in Austria, Germany, Italy, and the Republic of Ireland. Only the U.K., Sky’s largest market, is still to make a decision. The European Union has also given the deal its blessing.
The U.K. government received a report from media regulator Ofcom last week and a full decision is expected this week. Culture Minister Karen Bradley can either say she is minded to approve the deal in its current form, attach conditions, or refer it to U.K. competition authorities. The »
