The father of actor Toby Jones, he had more recently been appearing on British soap “Emmerdale” as Sandy Thomas.
In 1980, he starred his first film for Lynch, “The Elephant Man,” which starred John Hurt as a deformed man in Victorian London. Subsequently, the actor continued working with Lynch and appeared in “Dune” (1984), “Wild at Heart” (1990), and the three-part U.S. TV series “Hotel Room.” Upon news of Jones’ death, the filmmaker shared his remarks on Twitter.
“Dear Twitter Friends, I loved, loved, loved Freddie Jones,” Lynch tweeted. “Man-o-man will he be missed.”

We examine Eleven's character arc over all three seasons of Stranger Things, and why the loss of super powers is a good thing.
This article contains major spoilers for Stranger Things 3.
Eleven’s journey is one of contrasts on Stranger Things. As the veritable star of the series, and certainly its most enigmatic character, the young woman who was born without a name is defined by her contradictions. She is the doe-eyed girl who’s been systematically robbed of a childhood, and she’s also the superpowered messiah whose telekinesis is the solution to all problems; she is the victim of the powers-at-be and their protector when she alone can shut the gate to the Upside Down; she is the child bleeding from the nose in Mike’s arms during the season 1 finale and the unstoppable force who just slaughtered the dozen other exploded corpses around them.
Before digging in, we must caution this should only be regarded as a rumor for the time being, as it has yet to be confirmed by the studio or anyone associated with the production. That having been said, a new report claiming to have info from an "extremely reliable insider" states that Blumhouse wants director David Gordon Green, who helmed 2018's Halloween,

Now, just throwing a clown reference into a series that’s made liberal uses of King’s tone and 1980s-set novels seems like a stretch to connect the two. After all, from the title cards inspired by John Carpenter’s Christine, to Eleven’s similarities to the lead in Firestarter, the Duffer Brothers are unapologetic King fans. In fact, the author even gets name-checked during the series.

Jason Blum likes to engage with his fans pretty regularly on Twitter. Recently, he shared a photo of himself alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, who reprised her role as Laurie Strode in 2018's Halloween for the first time since her unceremonious end in Halloween: Resurrection. Curtis is pictured holding an action
The plot of the eight episodes is under wraps but the new 1980s-style illustration suggests that the intrepid youngsters of the sci-fi mystery series will soon be contending with a horrific, otherworldly creature with talons, who looks a bit like the alien visitor from Super 8. The season will also include some unattractive dead vermin, a menacing gunman outside the Fun Fair, and whatever secret dangers are locked up in that especially forbidding industrial site.
The illustration also shows Fourth of July fireworks billowing in the night skies above the glorious neon glow of the Starcourt Mall and the Fun Fair’s flag-draped Ferris wheel. Most of the visual real estate is reserved for the intense faces of the show’s young characters,
However, somewhere amidst the big budget Hollywood films and the cult classics, Mark L. Lester managed to helm a film called Class of 1984. This gem from 1982 is neither big budget nor as fun as
Though the new report confirms Flint died by hanging — as reported in an earlier inquest released one week after his death — the Senior Coroner for Essex, Caroline Beasley-Murray, officially recorded an open conclusion, saying that there was not enough evidence to rule that Flint killed himself, the BBC reports.
“We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date,
Case in point: in just the past two weeks, two King-inspired offerings have gotten the green light, with indie filmmaker darling Alex Ross Perry taking on a big screen version of short story “Rest Stop” just days after Julianne Moore announced she’d be starring in an
Zoom! Pow! Zap! These are the familiar utterances of my childhood, as comic book heroes on the screen were given over to the less ethereal and the more pragmatic: diamond thieves, bank robbers, maybe the occasional mad scientist to remind you of the fantastical origins of the material. Wes Craven’s Swamp Thing (1982) had certain campy elements, but didn’t completely reach that sugar-coated rush I was looking for. Jim Wynorski’s The Return of Swamp Thing (1989), however, is overflowing with teeth-rotting material that my inner 10-year-old craves.
Let’s be clear: I’m down with the grittier iterations of comic books that have boomed at
The two actors have worked together numerous times before including the HBO TV series Boardwalk Empire and Paramount Network’s Waco last year, but also such movies as Take Shelter, Tigerland, and Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.
Laura D. Smith and Kristin Mann produced The Quarry in partnership with Rockhill Studios, Metalwork Pictures and Gold Star Films. Film follows Whigham (The Man) who is on the run from his own sins, and finds himself in a small border town in Texas, impersonating a reverend. The town are quickly drawn to the man’s unorthodox sermons, but so is police Chief Moore (Shannon) who has his suspicions. Scott Teems directs, and co-wrote The Quarry with Andrew Brotzman. Teems, who is repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, Paradigm, and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern,
Stephen King once described his output as “the literary equivalent of a Big Mac” – nothing fancy, but it feeds the needs of the audience. While many of King’s early novels (up until 1987’s self-reflexive Misery) fulfilled that reliable fast-food remit, screen adaptations of the horror maestro’s work proved far more varied, ranging from such upmarket cordon bleu dishes as Brian De Palma’s Carrie, David Cronenberg’s The Dead Zone and Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (which famously incurred the author’s ire), all the way down to dog’s dinners such as Fritz Kiersch’s Children of the Corn and Mark L Lester’s Firestarter, the last of which King called “flavourless…like cafeteria mashed potatoes”.
In 2017, the King screen
King’s books and short stories quickly became hit movies, many of them celebrated in their time, and some flopped so hard that hardly anybody remembers them. Cataloguing every adaptation might be a fool’s errand, so we made some tough choices and decided to focus only on his theatrical releases.
And even then, there are so many King adaptations that it gets tricky. We’re not including the made-for-tv films (which are legion), and the sequels to King’s work rarely have anything to do with the source material,
Strengthening its management team Spectrum Films has promoted Catherine Armstrong to general manager, Sydney, and hired Dave Hollingsworth as executive director.
Both moves have been triggered by the resignation of general manager Adam Scott, who departs next month to take up an international position yet to be announced.
Armstrong’s promotion rewards her efforts over the past three years as head of post production. Hollingsworth, who starts on Monday, will oversee the technical operation and workflow as well as focusing on the company’s strategic growth in Australia and internationally.
Both report to managing director Josh Pomeranz, who tells If: “Catherine has made an outstanding contribution to the company and this promotion is a natural progression for her.

“Sometimes dead is better” in Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer’s new take on Stephen King’s cautionary fable Pet Sematary, a gothic, glossy remake which goes hard on the horror. For a time ‘remake’ was a dirty word in genre circles but after the storming success of It in 2017, digging up back catalog King and bringing it back from the dead is all the rage
Would Pet Sematary have been better left to rest in peace? Not exactly. But sadly, many of those new spins in Kolsch and Widmeyer’s take are the parts that don't work as well as they should. On the plus side, the cat is great.
Essentially a "The Monkey’s Paw" story
Flint died by suicide on March 4th at the age of 49; a coroner later revealed that Flint hung himself in his Essex home. A toxicology report is still in the works, with a July 23rd hearing scheduled.
On Saturday, the Prodigy mapped out the procession route ahead of Flint’s private funeral for fans “to pay their final respects & ‘raise the roof’ for Keef!

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 14
"I don't know what to do Jug, I remain marked for death"
As the second half of this season of Riverdale moves forward, most of our characters are now in flux, narratively being pushed ahead into the storylines that will dominate upcoming episodes. Thus we have Betty doing her best Firestarter homage, Veronica scrambling to regain control of her fledging business, Jughead figuring out the Serpents' future, and Kevin getting in deep with The Farm. It's a handful.
Annnnnnd then there's Archie. Who gets played (and then stabbed) by a child in this episode. Sigh. Riverdale's Archie problem shows no sign of going away anytime soon, but hopefully his decision to play the Gryphons and Gargoyles game he is unwittingly involved in to its bitter end will
