The eight-episode season will see Rudd working double-time in the story of a man named Myles struggling with his life who undergoes a novel treatment to become a better person. He then finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version — revealing that his own worst enemy is himself. Netflix’s “fresh and inventive” philosophical comedy will ask if people really want to be better.

Living With Yourself was created by Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart) who will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Oscar nominees Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine) are also set to executive produce as well as direct. Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern are overseeing the project for their Likely Story banner with Jax Media’s Tony Hernandez, Rudd, and Jeff Blitz executive producing.

Netflix picked up the project after the pilot originally ordered last year at IFC fell through due to budget restrictions. The streaming site has been working on a deal since February of this year. Living With Yourself reunites Rudd and Netflix after he returned to his Wet Hot American Summer role as Andy in TV series sequels.

Joker poster thumb

Although Joker isn’t coming to theaters until October 4th, it has already been the talk of the town. It currently has a 76% Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of this writing, and it has been praised by critics as well as causing fear in others due to the subject matter. One thing that had fans worried is that the film would not be inspired by the comics. Nerd Reactor was invited to a media screening of Joker, and director Todd Phillips was present. During the Q&A, he said that the film is very much inspired by the Joker’s comic book history.

“A lot of you guys have probably reprinted something I said in Empire where I was misquoted,” Phillips said. “I’m not going to complain. I like the writer; he wrote a great piece. I said we didn’t take anything from the comic book world. It’s not actually what I said. What I said was that we didn’t take anything from one particular comic. We kind of picked and chose what we liked from the 80-year canon of Joker. We kind of hold a few things that we liked.”

Joker is a film that is a departure from the typical comic book movie, and the director wanted to shake things up a bit.

“To us, could it have been called Arthur and be just about a clown? Maybe,” he continued. “I just thought there was a new way to tell a comic book movie. Maybe I’m wrong, but let’s do it as a character study. A big part of what interested me about it more than making a movie called Arthur was to kind of deconstruct the comic book movie a little bit. That was part of what was exciting about it to me.”

Joker is set in the early ’80s, and one of the many reasons for that is to get Warner Bros. behind on a Joker movie that’s not set in the DC Extended Universe.

“We never say in the movie it’s 1981, but we always say it’s late ’70s, early 80s,” Phillips said. “The reason we set it there, there was a lot of reasons. One reason was to separate it quite frankly from the DC universe. I pitched it to Warner Bros. and handed the script in. To sort of make it clear, ‘This isn’t ****ing with anything you have going on. This is like a separate universe, so much so, it takes place in the past before everything else.'”

Another reason Joker was set in that time period was that Phillips wanted to pay homage to the early character study films.

“Another reason is that tonally the movie is very much of a character study,” Phillips continued. “It’s movies that we’ve grown up on and loved. And you go, ‘God, these movies don’t get made as much anymore.’ They get made, these character studies. Social Network is a great one. There Will Be Blood is probably the best in the last 20 years of character study. But in the ’70s and ’80s, they were much more frequent. In a weird way, it was almost just an homage of that time. We’re making a movie that feels like that, and why not set it there?”

Some actors who have played the Joker have been known to dive deep into the character. Joaquin Phoenix revealed that he mostly laughed and had fun with the project.

“I’m mostly going to disappoint you,” he replied to a question about going deep into the character of Arthur. “I just don’t think I did, and also we had a good time. Honestly, I feel like, ‘Either I’m going to disappoint you, or I’m going to seem like an actor who’s not really committed. ‘Oh, he didn’t really do anything. He had a good time.'”

“We did laugh a lot,” Phillips added.

“We laughed like every day,” Phoenix continued.

The Joker hits theaters on October 4, 2019.

Lupita Nyong'o & Danai Gurira's Americanah Gets Series Order at HBO Max

Lupita Nyong’o & Danai Gurira’s Americanah gets series order at HBO Max

HBO Max has officially given a series order to the limited series adaptation titled Americanah, based on author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s best-selling novel of the same name. Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o will be starring in the 10-episode miniseries with her Black Panther co-star Danai Gurira serving as the series’ writer and showrunner.

“Americanah has sparked a cultural phenomenon and is revered by fans around the world. It has affected me deeply as one of the most moving, socially relevant and romantic stories of our time,” HBO Max’s Head of Original Content, Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “With exceptional talent like Lupita and Danai in front of and behind the camera, this series will give viewers a uniquely heartfelt and unforgettable experience.”

This project will mark the third collaboration between Nyong’o and Gurira, who also worked together on the 2015 play Eclipsed which earned four Tony Award nominations.

RELATED: Little Monsters Red-Band Trailer: Zombie Comedy Coming to Hulu in October!

Americanah tells the story of Ifemelu (Nyong’o), a young, beautiful, self-assured woman raised in Nigeria, who as a teenager falls in love with her classmate Obinze. Living in a military-ruled country, they each depart for the west, with Ifemelu heading for America, where, despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple for the first time with what it means to be black. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous undocumented life in London.

“Through Americanah, Chimamanda brought the African female voice into mainstream consciousness in an unprecedented way. It is intellectually incisive, indicting, yet full of humor, and riddled with humanity. She makes unheard voices familiar, universal and yet palpably specific,” Gurira said. I am honored to bring her incredible novel to life on the screen. I’m thrilled to collaborate once again with Lupita who brings her astounding ability as a performer and producer shepherding this project, along with HBO MAX’s unbridled enthusiasm to bring this groundbreaking narrative to the TV audience.”

The novel is a highly lauded tale that has become a leader in the cultural conversation, Americanah is an incredible exploration of the human experience that crosses three continents to give an empathetic, compelling view of the complex realities of race, politics, immigration and identity.

“Americanah has been a passion project for me since I read Chimamanda’s beautiful novel in 2013. It’s a tale that is simultaneously timely and timeless,” Nyong’o said. “HBO Max is the perfect partner to bring this profound and celebrated story to life, and I’m thrilled that Danai will bring to the project her intelligence, wit, and understanding of the stories and the worlds of Americanah.

Nyong’o had been developing the adaptation since 2014 with D2 Productions, Plan B Entertainment and Potboiler Television. Americanah will be executive produced by Gurira and Nyong’o through her Eba Productions banner. Andrea Calderwood (Generation Kill) for Potboiler Television, Didi Rea and Danielle Del for D2 Productions, and Nancy Won (Jessica Jones) are also set as executive producers.

RELATED: Knives out Trailer: Rian Johnson Assembles an A-List Ensemble

From Johnson’s character posters, Christopher Plummer is Harlan Thrombey, the world’s most successful mystery writer and the patriarch of this whole insidious clan. When he turns up dead under mysterious circumstances, the game is afoot…

LaKeith Stanfield is Detective Elliott, the cool-headed local police detective who is ready to rule Harlan’s death a suicide. But when the clues and motives start to surface, he’s suddenly not so certain.

Ana de Armas is Marta Cabrera, Harlan’s devoted caregiver. She was closest to Harlan and has some secrets of her own to keep. Are they secrets worth killing for?

Michael Shannon is Walt Thrombey, Harlan’s youngest son. Walt runs the family publishing company, but his ambitions reach much farther. Would he kill for them?

Jaeden Martell is Walt’s son, who spends every moment of the day on his phone. Could he have trolled his way into murder?

Toni Collette is Joni Thrombey, Harlan’s daughter-in-law. She’s made a killing with her lifestyle brand Flam, but if she was desperate enough, would she stop there?

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis explained that “the film centers on a detective (Daniel Craig) investigating a murder when he comes across an eccentric, combative family.” She also noted the family gathering setting “turns bloody very quickly.

Seinfeld Streaming Rights: Netflix Nabs All 180 Episodes....Starting in 2021

Seinfeld Streaming Rights: Netflix Nabs All 180 Episodes….Starting in 2021

Netflix and Sony Pictures Television has announced that all 180 episodes of Seinfeld will appear on Netflix for worldwide streaming starting in 2021. All episodes of the series are currently available for streaming on Hulu.

“Seinfeld is the television comedy that all television comedy is measured against,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in a statement. “It is as fresh and funny as ever and will be available to the world in 4K for the first time.”

The future of the Emmy award winning series’ online presence has been up in the air as various entertainment companies begin to launch and plot their own streaming services. Netflix has already lost streaming rights for The Office and Friends, casualties of the competitive streaming market as both are headed to NBC Universal’s forthcoming streaming service and WarnerMedia’s HBO Max, respectively. The Los Angeles times reports that for this new deal Netflix paid “far more than the $500 million” that NBC Universal used to get back streaming rights to The Office.

Seinfeld‘s appearance on Netflix isn’t a huge shock from one perspective as co-creator and star Jerry Seinfeld has been associated with the streaming service for many years, premiering new episodes of his series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and the Grammy nominated special Jerry Before Seinfeld on Netflix. On the other hand it is surprising to see NBC Universal lose out on the series as Seinfeld was the flagship series for the network during its initial run.

An Emmy and Golden Globe winning series, Jerry Seinfeld stars as a cartoonish version of himself in the popular sitcom, often described as “the show about nothing.” Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards also star in the series.

The sequel is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Venom) from a screenplay written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (the Deadpool films).

Mars, the Bay Area Masked Independent Hip-Hop pioneer never stops grinding and keeps delivering his fans fresh interviews and thrilling singles! This time the gigantic hip-hop website Underground Hip-Hop Blog (Founded in 1997) conducted a quick but informative interview with Mars about his upcoming Force 5 Records collaborative effort “Devils & Demons” with hardcore punk legend Danny Diablo, major label attention with his single “Throw It All Away”, helping the homeless, and more! 

 

Snippet of the Underground Hip-Hop Blog Interview With Mars:

Legends Will Never Die: What is the earliest hip hop memory that you can recall?

Mars: Back when I was a little kid, my aunt Brandy was playing the “We Want Some Pussy!” song by the 2 Live Crew & told me that they were saying “We Want Some Cookies!”. That’s as early as I can think of. But when I was a teen, Del the Funky Homosapien got me into it as a Bay Area artist before anyone. From there, the 90’s g-gunk era kicked in & I was stuck on it. But it was when I heard X-Raided, Brotha Lynch Hung & the Three 6 Mafia is when I really found where I wanted to be.

 

LWND: You’re very renown in the horrorcore scene so that has me wondering: Could you name off your top 5 horror movies?

Mars: I like the classics. The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the Child’s Play movies up until Bride of Chucky, almost all the Friday the 13th‘s before the reboot, the Nightmare of Elm Street series, Gorgon Video used to send me all of the Faces of Death & Henry movies as they came out. Loved all that stuff until they released Fact or Fiction & broke my heart when I found out it was all fake footage.

 

LWND: You dropped a surprise single on Friday the 13th called “It Gets Deep” under your own label Mad Insanity Records in conjunction with EMPIRE Distribution. It goes back to your roots of West Coast g-funk mixed with the horror themes that helped define your career. What made you wanna do that?

Mars: Bad Mind emailed me the beat as I was driving around so I played it, recorded the song & it was already mixed when I woke up the next morning. But, I grew up with my dad always playing funk & soul oldies & I still ride around playing the Delphonics & Brothers Johnson when I drive. I just think it sounds smooth & cool. I always wanted my brand of horrorcore to sound different than anyone else’s. “It Gets Deep” is a reflection of that.

LWND: You’ve released 6 singles & a collaboration EP with Young Swizz this year so far, all independently with EMPIRE backing you up. How much more do you plan on releasing before the year is up?

Mars: I have about 5 or 6 albums coming out, but I’ll keep releasing as singles & other stuff while I’m waiting on features. As long as their waiting on the albums, I’ll keep giving them something to listen to in the meantime. But I’m trying to drop everything I got all this year. My music isn’t for everyone, but the people that fuck with me I want to make sure they have enough new stuff all the time. Nobody can deny somebody’s hustle, determination or drive. I’m trying to get it. It won’t stop next year either.

 

LWND: You’re dropping a collaborative album with Danny Diablo under Force 5 Records very soon called “Devils & Demons”. How did that come about?

Mars: Danny had hit me up on Twitter & asked me to do a verse for his album. I wasn’t familiar with his hip hop stuff before, but we eventually became friends & the question came up. I knew it would stress Donnie at Force 5 Records out because me & Danny are both knuckleheads & love to party, but it came out really dope bringing our 2 worlds together. This was one of those opportunities that bought a chance to work with people I never I would have ever imagined myself on the same songs with. Slaine, Vinnie Paz? Come on. We got something for everyone on this one.

LWND: You’re set to release a solo album within the next 2 months called “Locked Up a Broad”. Could you tell me what to expect from you on there?

Mars: Locked Up a Broad is a really different album because I picked beats Clayton already had sitting & chose to adapt to whatever I was feeling at the time. So you get a lot of bluesy songs, trap sounding stuff & even some down south shit. But it’s all horror based music about kidnapping. Really different, but super dope.

 

LWND: You’ve been feeding the homeless community around your hometown of Pittsburg & Antioch, CA with the help of partnerships with Kinders BBQ & more locally based companies. You’ve helped get involved in saving a local skatepark for the kids in the area who were being forced out by a local real estate developer & even partnered up with pro-skateboarder Corey Duffel to create awareness for the cause. What made you wanna do all of that?

Mars: Both things I’m very passionate about. One time, I went to the store & bought sandwiches for everyone at the house & nobody was home, so I went & brought them to everyone downtown & it felt good because people really appreciated it. I get my shows & events catered catered for free and I always felt like if I had that hook up that I should be bringing stuff like that for people who need it. Kinders BBQ, Little J’s in Pittsburg, California & so many places around the community have really kicked down a lot of food for the cause & I often bring hygiene products, shoes, clothes, even cars, down there & make sure people have what they need to stay afloat. I hope to one day open up a shelter and I’ve been talking with the mayor about how I can get more & more involved as it comes up in the city council meetings & city planning. The skatepark stuff, comes out of me being a kid who skated & it brought me so many opportunities & skills that I use every day that I feel more kids need a shot at a positive outlet. From trying to save ones from being taken away to trying to get ones being built, I feel like I have a big enough voice in the community & with a following everywhere that I can make a positive difference with the help of people who support me. Right now I’m trying to get the kids in Pittsburg, California a skatepark so they have somewhere safe to go and not in the streets where they are out getting in trouble just trying to do what they love.

As for  another new single; Mars decided to jump back into his Bay Area horror tinged first-person stalker style roots “It Gets Deep” released through Empire Records.

The Irishman Poster

Netflix Debuts The Irishman Poster for Scorsese’s Upcoming Crime Drama

The first poster for Netflix’s upcoming true-crime drama The Irishman has been released, featuring stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. You can check out the full poster now in the gallery below!

RELATED: The Irishman Runtime is 3.5 Hours, Making is a True Epic

Robert De Niro headlines the flick as mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, reputed to have carried out more than 25 murders. Al Pacino will portray infamously slain labor leader Jimmy Hoffa in what will mark the Academy Award winner’s first time working with Scorsese.

An epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries, and connections to mainstream politics.

RELATED: Netflix Reveals First Look at Eli Horror Feature Directed by Ciaran Foy

The Irishman, based on the book by Charles Brandt, will employ extensive (and expensive) digital de-aging techniques so the older actors can portray their characters through the decades. Joe Pesci will portray Pennsylvania Mafia boss Russell Bufalino, who may have had a hand in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. Ray Romano will play another member of the same crime family, Bill Bufalino.

The Irishman will begin its theatrical rollout starting November 1 before premiering on Netflix starting November 27.
