The Stephen King Companion: Four Decades of Fear From The Master of Horror By George Beahm

companion2015

In 1989, George Beahm’s Stephen King Companion appeared on the scene and became an instant hit with King fans. It was the go to bible of King information, packed with interviews, essays, inside information, rare photographs, and tantalizing trivia.

The Companion leaped onto the bestseller lists, was snapped up by the book clubs, and became known as an esential resource on King and his work.

The new, revised 320 page edition of The Stephen King Companion maintains the spirit of the original volume while updating it for this decade. It includes new material – articles, profiles, and interviews from such contributors as Clive Barker, leading King critic Michael R. Collings, and Stephen King Encyclopedia author Stephen J. Spignesi.

The first general interest book, resource guide, and reference work about the most popular novelist of our time.

From St. Martin’s Press, to be released on September 1, 2015, the third edition of The Stephen King Companion ($30). Profusely illustrated by Glenn Chadbourne and with numerous photographs, this will be George Beahm’s final word on all things Stephen King.

LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales, An All-New Series of Event Specials, Acquired By Disney XD

star-wars-lego-30020--1--125219

The LEGO Group announced today that DisneyXD has acquired LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales for airing later this year. The animated content series consists of five 22-minute episodes that re-tell the Star Wars saga in chronological order from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace up through Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. DisneyXD is also currently home to the animated hit series “Star Wars Rebels.”

“Since we introduced our first LEGO Star Wars set in 1999, we have seen and heard from countless Star Wars fans who have used LEGO bricks to tell their own version of this timeless story, re-enacting favorite scenes and imagining new story lines,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for The LEGO Group. “LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales gives us an opportunity to share highlights of the Star Wars story with a sense of humor and excitement that can only be conveyed through the LEGO brick, and will be a fun resource for families as they gear up for the next movie.”

As its title suggests, “Droid Tales” is a re-telling of the Star Wars universe through the eyes of C-3P0 and R2-D2. Following their victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, seen at the close of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, C-3PO and R2-D2 have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels with the tales of their adventures that led to the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing and suddenly viewers are taken on a new adventure that leads to encounters with familiar faces and places that prompt the re-telling of the entire saga. The series offers all of the playful humor that viewers expect from LEGO Star Wars.

The series is set to arrive later this year, just before Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives on December 18, 2015.

The film is scheduled to start principle photography in summer of 2016. Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green have written the original screenplay, based on an idea by Fancher and Ridely Scott.

The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original.

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners,” said Johnson and Kosove, “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team.”

Ford will next be seen in The Age of Adaline for Lionsgate before he reprises another iconic sci-fi role, returning as Han Solo in J.J. Abrams’ much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Villeneuve’s next, meanwhile, is the crime thriller Sicario, starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benecio Del Toro, for Black Label Media and Lionsgate.

Alcon Entertainment acquired the film, television and ancillary franchise rights to Blade Runner in 2011 from producer Bud Yorkin to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic science-fiction thriller. Yorkin will serve as a producer on the sequel along with Kosove and Johnson. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will co-produce.

Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.
