Disenchantment Season 1 Episode 1 Recap

Disenchantment season 1 episode 1 recap

Disenchantment is the new Netflix original series from Matt Groening, the creator of both The Simpsons and Futurama. Join me as I recap all 10 episodes of its first season, starting with the pilot ‘A Princess, an Elf, and a Demon Walk Into a Bar.’

Wedding Bell Blues

DisenchantmentS1E1

Princess Bean of the Kingdom of Dreamland, was slated to marry Prince Guysbert in order to secure a political alliance between their two kingdoms. However, Bean was not very happy about this. Bean escaped from the palace the night before her wedding in order to play poker in the local tavern. She cheated to win, which angered the other bar patrons and resulted in a big brawl breaking out. Cleverly, Bean threw her winnings on the ground of the tavern, which distracted all of the patrons and allowed her to escape.

The next day, Bean returned to her palace and was required to change into her wedding dress. Later, while surveying the reception area, Bean noticed a peculiar looking gift. She was tempted by a voice coming from inside the box to open it. She did so and was greeted by her new personal demon, Luci, who will now antagonize her for all eternity. Luci attempted to explain the nature of his presence, which was to make Bean feel good about doing bad things. This resulted in her redecorating her wedding cake, which her father, King Zog, had made to be purely about the political alliance, into a message about how much she hated her father.

At Bean’s wedding, she refused to marry the prince, which caused him to drop the ring in surprise and stab himself through the head on the throne.

The Lone Elf

DisenchantmentS1E1

Next, we met the group of elves who lived in their kingdom known as Elfwood. All of the elves were happy, except for one elf in particular, named Elfo. He was unhappy with his job and wished to go somewhere else. Later that night, Elfo was sentenced to be hung. The next day, the execution was disrupted and Elfo escaped to a giant gate that functioned as the border between Elfwood and the outside world. Elfo was accosted by the leader of the elf group before he decided to open the gate and leave Elfwood.

While he was wandering through the forest, Elfo was picked up off the ground by a hawk. After boring the hawk, he was dropped into the middle of a great battle between gnomes and trolls. The battle ended with all members of both groups dead except for one lone troll. Elfo managed to stab that troll in the eye, rendering the troll completely blind. Elfo promptly made his escape from the battlefield.

Here We Are At The Crossroads

DisenchantmentS1E1

Elfo finally arrived in Dreamland, and stumbled right into Bean’s wedding. King Zog immediately ordered Elfo to be seized as elves are known to have great magical properties. During the ruckus; Bean, Elfo, and Luci escaped from the wedding together. King Zog ordered a group of knights to track the group down and bring them back to the castle so that Bean could marry Guysbert’s brother, Markimer. He also wanted Elfo to be used for some magical purpose.

Bean and company escaped into the forest and evaded a group of knights tracking them by climbing up a tree. While in the branches of the tree, the group met a fairy. They asked for her help and she told them about the Wishmaster. Promptly, the group set off to find the Wishmaster, and they finally stumbled a mansion occupied by the Washmaster. The knights barged in and attempted to capture the group, but they were foiled by the blinded troll. Bean, Elfo and Luci jumped off the cliff, to their presumed deaths.

The Walking Dead's Steven Ogg Set To Recur on Snowpiercer

The Walking Dead’s Steven Ogg to recur on Snowpiercer

The upcoming TNT adaptation of the acclaimed Snowpiercer is moving full-steam ahead with the addition of Steven Ogg in a recurring role, according to Deadline.

Ogg, known for his work on The Walking Dead as Negan lieutenant Simon and Grand Theft Auto V as psychopath Trevor Phillips, will be playing the role of Pike, a leader of the Tail who used to be a career convict that escaped from prison at the time of the Freeze and acts as a warrior for the people.

Salem’s Iddo Goldberg Is Joining TNT’s Snowpiercer Series

Within the series, Iddo Goldberg (Salem) will portray Bennett, one of the engineers who designed the train and also holds some of the hidden secrets of the train as well. Daveed Diggs (Blindspotting), Jennifer Connelly (Only the Brave), Mickey Sumner (American Made), Susan Park (Vice Principals), Benjamin Haigh (The Conjuring 2), Sasha Frolova (Red Sparrow), Katie McGuinness (Roots), Alison Wright (The Americans) and Annalise Basso (Ouija: Origin of Evil) also star in the Snowpiercer series.

Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson was hired to direct the pilot episode of Snowpiercer. However, Derrickson refused to return for TNT’s mandated reshoots for Snowpiercer over a creative disagreement. On Twitter, Derrickson wrote “The 72-page Snowpiercer TV pilot script by [Josh Friedman] is the best I’ve ever read. The feature-length pilot I made from that script may be my best work. The new showrunner has a radically different vision for the show. I am forgoing my option to direct the extreme reshoots.” Friedman also left Snowpiercer in January over creative differences. In his place, TNT named Orphan Black co-creator, Graeme Mason, as the new showrunner.

TNT hasn’t yet revealed a timetable for Snowpiercer‘s premiere, but it may arrive in 2019 or 2020.

Searching Producer Developing 14 More 'ScreenLife' Movies

Searching producer developing 14 more ‘ScreenLife’ movies

Though he wasn’t the first to attempt the style, Timur Bekmambetov has been the driving force behind the resurgence of films told exclusively through computer screens on the big screen like the Unfriended films and the upcoming Searching. Speaking with The LA Times (Via SlashFilm) the filmmaker revealed that he is developing 14 more films in the same style.

The genre, which Bekmambetov calls “Screen Life,” is similar to the found-footage film genre in which a web camera is recording the main character(s) as they work on their computers and shows their actions in a separate window while also showing what they are working on or looking at on their screens. Some of its earliest entries include thrillers such as the 2014 thriller Open Windows and the 2014 horror film The Den, but it wasn’t until 2015’s Unfriended that the genre began to flourish.

RELATED: Searching Viral Site Offers Clues for the Tech-Heavy Mystery 

The film was a major financial success, grossing over $64 million at the box office off of a $1 million budget, with many considering it to be the next The Blair Witch Project due to its groundbreaking attempt at accurately recreating Skype calls and computer screens for film. Due to its success, the film spawned a sequel produced again by Bekmambetov that received mixed-to-positive reviews similar to the first.

I don’t know if it’s bad or good, but I feel that half of my life — the most important events of my life — are happening on screen today,” Bekmambetov said. “I’m finding friends, losing friends, falling in love, losing people I love, making projects, collaborating and fighting and arguing.”

Bekmambetov describes the style as very character-driven, helping audiences connect with the emotions the characters are feeling as they deal with what’s being thrown at them, be it a killer, a ghost or even just an improperly-sent email. Though the majority of the films in this style have focused on horror and thriller, the 57-year-old producer hopes to expand to other genres and has projects lined up over the next 18 months that include comedies and romantic comedies.

RELATED: New Searching Trailer: Nothing Stays Hidden Forever

His next project using ScreenLife is the upcoming thriller Searching starring John Cho, in which the Harold & Kumar actor plays a father who looks for his missing daughter by contacting her social media friends and peers at school in hopes of finding her, only to discover there’s a lot he never knew about her. It is the first mainstream Hollywood thriller to be headlined by an Asian-American actor and is already receiving rave reviews from critics after its premiere at the South by Southwest and Sundance Film festivals. Searching hits theaters August 24.

You’ve seen them at conventions: splotchy colored Bajoran nose ridges bumpy in all the wrong places. To use Gul Dukat’s favorite phrase, “rest assured” those intrepid cosplayers spent hours and hours working hard on their makeup. It’s difficult to create a three-dimensional ridge on a flat surface. But, “rest assured,” you can apply, in less than 10 minutes, Bajoran nose ridges that perfectly match your skin color and have absolutely no rough edges to speak of.

Major Kira

When I first decided to cosplay Major Kira, I spent forever on the nose ridges: researching different methods, buying various pre-made prosthetics, making my own out of various latexes and gels. It was expensive experimentation. But no matter what approach I took, I was never satisfied with the results. It took too much time to apply, or the edges or color didn’t blend into my skin. The best I ever got doing my own nose ridges was a one-hour application time with OK color match and marginal results blending the edges, and after sweating in it for the day as it progressively looked worse and worse, it would take a half hour to remove it carefully enough that I could use the nose again. Then I realized that cosplay is more like live theater than it is like film -- and changed my approach.

In filming, the camera will often be very close to the makeup, so the makeup has to actually be three-dimensional to create the desired illusion. Also in filming, there is a makeup artist there to do touch-ups in between takes. What looks like a continuous five-minute scene with perfect makeup is actually hours of work with multiple times to fix the makeup.

Cosplay, on the other hand, is much more like live theater. The viewing audience is in the same space as the performer, and usually over an arm’s length away, so a three-dimensional illusion can be achieved with highlights and shadows. Also, a cosplayer, like a stage performer, has one continuous performance with very little chance to touch up the makeup.

Instead of thinking like a makeup artist for film, think like a makeup artist for stage: use a variation of the stage makeup trick for old age wrinkles. As long as your audience is more than an arm’s length away, it looks three-dimensional and works better than prosthetic ridges because it uses your own skin color and there are no edges to blend. Even within an arm’s length, I’ve had people think it was three-dimensional. With a little practice, it takes just minutes to apply, stays on well for most of the day and takes seconds to remove.

In general, what you’re going to do is apply two colors in lines, the lines touching each other along their length. Where the two colors meet, but do not blend, it creates the illusion of a wrinkle.


You will need:

• A pot of crème highlight. I use Ben Nye Ultralight, but that’s because I’m super-pale. Use a highlight that will work for your skin color.

• A pot of crème character shadow, dark enough to create a shadow effect against your skin color. I use Ben Nye Character Shadow.

• A ¼” flat brush or eye brow brush.

• Powder. I prefer a translucent powder, but any loose powder that matches your skin tone should work.

• A picture of the makeup you are copying. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve done it, I always pull out a picture for reference. Google thinks I have no idea what Major Kira looks like, I’ve searched for the pictures so much.


Steps

  • Wash, dry and moisturize your face.

Brooke Wilkins creating Bajoran nose

  • Do your usual makeup routine that makes you happy. Or not.
  • Using the flat brush apply the highlight in horizontal lines across your nose.
    • The highlight lines will be directly above the shadow lines, which you will apply later.Brooke Wilkins creating Bajoran nose
    • I wrinkle up my nose to see where the wrinkles naturally lie and follow those lines as much as possible.
      Brooke Wilkins creating Bajoran nose
    • The lines will be about 1/16” thick each – so each line has a top edge and a bottom edge.
    • Wipe the excess makeup from the brush.
  • Using the flat brush, carefully feather out the top edge of the highlight lines.
    Brooke Wilkins creating Bajoran nose
    • Do not touch the bottom of the highlight lines with the brush.
    • It is absolutely key to keep the bottom edge of the highlight line crisp and clean, but blend the top edge of the line so that it fades out.
  • Clean off the brush, or at least wipe off most of the light-colored makeup from the bristles.
  • Using the brush, directly below the highlight lines apply the shadow lines.
    • Touch the brush right up against the crisp line of the bottom edge of the highlight lines, but not over that edge.
      Brooke Wilkins creating Bajoran nose
    • The two colors should touch, but not overlap.
  • Wipe the excess makeup from the brush.

  • Using the brush, carefully feather out the bottom edge of the shadow lines, keeping the top edge of the shadow lines crisp and clean, blending out the bottom edges.
  • Use powder to set the makeup.

  • Do not rub the makeup when you’re wearing it, and it should last as long as your regular makeup does.

  • Wash off along with your regular makeup, or use a baby wipe if you just want to take off the ridges.

Get a Closer Look at The Ultimate Predator In New TV Spot

Get a closer look at the ultimate predator in new The Predator TV spot

20th Century Fox has released a brand new TV spot for Shane Black’s upcoming sequel The Predator. The new action-packed teaser gives the audience a much closer look of The Ultimate Predator towards the end of the clip. Check out the video below!

RELATED: New The Predator TV Spot Reveals Ultimate Upgrade

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

The Predator cast includes Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Jacob Tremblay (Room, Wonder), Keegan-Michael Key (Tomorrowland), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Sterling K. Brown (This is Us), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Thomas Jane (The Mist), Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale).

Black, who wrote the script with his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker, has confirmed that the film remains in the continuity of the first two movies and isn’t a full reboot of the series. He said there is a reference in the script as to why the film has a singular title, and that the film will carry an R rating.

RELATED: Edward James Olmos Has Been Cut From The Predator

The original Predator was directed by McTiernan and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a United States special forces team that comes under attack from an alien entity that prizes the thrill of the hunt above all else. It was followed by a direct sequel, Predator 2, in 1990 before crossing over with Fox’s Alien franchise for two additional sequels, Alien vs. Predator and AvP: Requiem. In 2010, Nimrod Antal helmed a reboot with a new feature, Predators.

The film will have its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 6. The Predator will be release in theaters on September 14.

It is with great sadness and regret that I have to inform you of a big loss in the Juggalo family.  A 24 year old Juggalo named Damian “Pookie” Huber from the St. Louis area lost his life due to a senseless home invasion. Three men broke into a house that Pookie was visiting where he was shot in the chest and later died at the hospital.

You can see the press release by the local sheriff’s department below.

From Madison County Sheriff’s Facebook:

Press Release
August 17, 2018
MCS Case Number 18-674

On August 16, 2018, at approximately 11:09 p.m., the Madison County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of shots fired at 152 S. Oak Street, Cottage Hills, Illinois. Deputies responded and determined:

DAMIAN M. HUBER
MALE / WHITE
AGE: 24
BRIGHTON, ILLINOIS

had been shot during an apparent home invasion. Huber was visiting with an occupant of the home at the time of the shooting. He was rushed to a St. Louis area hospital for emergency medical treatment, but sadly died as a result of the injuries received during the home invasion.

The Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis was activated and is interested in speaking to anyone who knows anything about the events that lead to Mr. Huber’s death. The contact number for the Major Case Squad is 618-296-5544

Capt. T. Mike Dixon
Major Case Squad Deputy Commander

You can also see the local newspaper, The Telegraph‘s article about the incident Right Here.

One of Pookie’s homies, Cora, hit us up with several pictures, articles, and a bunch of info about him. I could tell what an impact that he had on his close homies, and the Juggalo family in general, and what a tragedy this is.

Another one of Pookie’s friends, Ashley S., had this to say about him:

The Juggalo World lost a Soldier today. Damian Huber (aka Pookie) was one of the realest, belonging to the 618 Lost Ninja Clan. For more than 15 years, Pookie has run with the hatchet, “holdin em up” wherever he went. Attending more than 8 Gatherings, with his Juggalo Crew, spreading mad love and probably “fucking your bitch”!! He was OUR Lost Ninja, who was just starting to find his way all while constantly encouraging each of us to never give up! No matter how low he got, he knew our Juggalo Family would help keep him whole and lift him whenever needed. We were his family!! His hugs, his smile, his laugh….you couldn’t help but feel his soul. Pookie was priceless!! He was the Juggalo you would never trade!! Just 24 years old and ripped from our family. Pookie was MURDERED!! Shot in the chest and robbed of the life he should still be living. He was and always will be a Ryda and went out like one!! The 618 will never be the same without our Lil brother. Lost Ninja Clan you will forever be. You will forever ride in our hearts and continue to live on in the Juggalo World. Pookie, till we meet again, fly high and hold it down in Shanghai-la till we get there. You may be gone, but Wicked Clowns will never die!!!

If you want to see more, and possibly donate to laying Pookie to rest, you can do so here: https://www.gofundme.com/pookie039s-last-ryde

Rest in Peace lil’ homie.

Juggalos and Juggalettes, I know how much that you were looking forward to ICP‘s “Milenko And Friends” tour coming to your town, but I’ve got the ultimate piece of staleness to report.

Just minutes ago via Insane Clown Posse’s Facebook, our homie KG let us know that the remaining dates of this tour have been POSTPONED.  There is no word yet as to why this happened. All of the dates were Canadian shows, so hopefully our neighbors to the north get them rescheduled soon.

Here is what was said on the ICP Facebook Page:

‪JUGGALOS, the Milenko and Friends tour has been postponed. ‬

‪We apologize to the family and will have more information and details as soon as they are available. ‬

‪MCL -kg‬

We hope that everyone involved with the tour is healthy and that it’s just an unforeseen bone.

Fantasia: The Ranger Director Jenn Wexler & Producer Heather Buckley

Fantasia: The Ranger Director Jenn Wexler & Producer Heather Buckley

Glass Eye Pix and Hood River Entertainment are releasing The Ranger at the IFC Center in New York this weekend, and ComingSoon.net had the chance to chat with director Jenn Wexler and producer Heather Buckley at Fantasia Fest last month. Check out our interview about the punks vs park ranger horror flick below, and come see our own Max Evry intro the film at New York’s IFC Center this Saturday, August 18 at 8:20pm with Wexler and Buckley in attendance!

RELATED: Exclusive Clip From The Ranger Finds Punks in Danger

“I always wanted to direct, that was kind of a dream of mine,” said Wexler of where The Ranger originated from. “I wanted to produce and support these filmmakers telling their stories, but I was also paying close attention to things and putting them in my brain for things I’d want to pull from when it came time to direct my first film. ‘The Ranger’ was something me and a friend wrote when we were in college together. I loved it because the logline itself is so visual, the punk colors clashing with the woodland world. It was something I could shoot on a budget. It’s kids in the woods, and because they’re punks there’s still this element of style and production design to it.”

“I was originally given the script to read because I am Jenn’s friend,” said longtime Blu-ray special features producer Heather Buckley, who makes her producing debut on the film. “She said, ‘This is a script about punk rock, why don’t you check it out?’ I was very taken by the authenticity of the characters because they remind me of my friends. In the reviews some of them say, ‘these kids are assholes.’ I know I’m an asshole, because there’s a sort of joking, east coast ball-busting obnoxiousness in that kind of character. During the live show sequence is a lot of my friends. I hawked over the gear, the clothes that they wear. I was able to get a music supervisor who knew all the bands that wound up on the soundtrack. I was able to work with Mr. Lobo who did all the flyers and logos on the gear and the animation at the beginning and end.”

The film got a special leg up from Fantasia Fest’s Frontieres program, where Wexler, Buckley and famed New York producer Larry Fessenden (Habit, House of the Devil) were able to secure the financing they needed to make it.

“In 2016, Glass Eye -myself and Larry- and Heather Buckley, we all went to the Frontiers program,” Wexler explained. “We went there with our look book, and we had a presentation, we had shot a teaser and everything. We pitched the project and Andrew van den Houten really dug it and decided we were gonna make it together.”

“It’s on the short side, it’s three chords, it gets in and gets out, it’s f*cking colorful, it’s on drugs, it’s socio-political… it’s almost a punk song,” Buckley says of the film. “I used to be a creative director in the advertising world, and I would send Jenn stuff while she was working on it. I pitched it to an investor without being a producer, just to help her out. At some point I became co-producer on the project to get that done.”

The punks in the film never feel like a parody, and carry themselves with the appropriate level of punk-osity.

“We talked about 80’s punk movies like ‘Repo Man’ and ‘Class of 1984’ and ‘Return of the Living Dead,'” Wexler said. “This goes for the ranger character too: I wanted everybody to treat the characters like real people. I didn’t want anybody to do anything with a wink. It is able to maintain this truth because all the actors are being earnest with the way they treat the characters. The punks and the ranger both have the rules they live by, they both have the uniforms they wear. The way they look at the world is very locked into place and you kind of have to abide by it or else you’re not really that thing. Kelsey, meanwhile, is trying to figure herself out while all these groups are telling her what she should be.”

While Buckley is consistently dressed in leather and patches and studded bracelets, Wexler doesn’t wear her punk past on her sleeve… although she did have an authentic love of the punk lifestyle.

“It was a big part of my teenage development,” Wexler said of her punk background. “I grew up in this suburban town in New Jersey where you were supposed to be a cheerleader or on the football team or whatever. I never felt like I clicked in that world. When I started to go to punk shows as a teenager it was very exciting to learn that there were other groups of people and there was a different kind of space. It was very important to the discovery of my identity, and that goes for horror movies as well. Something I discovered in my early adolescence. It was an escape from the drudgery of suburbia.”

“When people see me out in the world, I dress like post-90’s punk,” Buckley said. “We already have the labels, we have the look down. I’m very attracted to the English ’77 look. New York City is very steeped in that. I was always attracted to that since I was a little girl but I didn’t know what it was until I watched ‘Fear No Evil’ in 1988 and heard The Sex Pistols on the soundtrack and it felt directly like myself. I continue this throughout my life, that energy of rebellion, questioning. I always tell people punk is intellectual, and it’s also the joker and the rebel simultaneously. The tone of the film is a true punk rock tone when you look at it.”

After a run-in with the cops at a punk show goes sideways, Chelsea (Chloe Levine, The Transfiguration) and her pals flee the city in search of a place to lay low. Running to the security of Chelsea’s old, abandoned family cabin in the woods, they fall under the watchful eye of an overzealous park ranger (Jeremy Holm, House of Cards) who holds a secret from Chelsea’s past. Set to the beat of a killer punk soundtrack (Fang, The Avengers, The Grim, Rotten UK and more) and presented in eye-popping neon colors, Jenn Wexler’s debut offers a modern take on survivalist horror that both celebrates and subverts the genre’s tropes—with equal parts humor, glitter and gore.

The Ranger is the directorial debut from Jenn Wexler, producer of Ana Asensio’s 2017 SXSW Competition Winner Most Beautiful Island, Robert Mockler’s Like Me (2017), and Mickey Keating’s Psychopaths (2017) and Darling (2016). The Ranger world premiered at SXSW 2018, was in official selection for the innagural What The Fest!?, recently played the Fantasia International Film Festival, and is set to open London’s FrightFest.

The film is co-written by Giaco Furino and Wexler, who also produced along with horror veteran Larry Fessenden, Heather Buckley, Ashleigh Snead and Andrew van den Houten.

Season 3 saw Supergirl stop Reign and the other Worldkillers’ threat to humanity and our planet, and in the process, Kara was shocked to find her mother Alura alive and living in a salvaged Argo City that survived the destruction of Krypton. Reconnecting with her past caused Kara to realize that her true home is now here on Earth, where big changes are taking place for her and all of her friends in National City – and also, it appears, for a doppelganger in Russia! Season four promises to be full of surprises, action, adventure and lots of big revelations for Supergirl, Alex, James, J’onn, Lena and Brainy.

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow ‘Winn’ Schott, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jess Rath as Brainiac 5, and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw/J’onn J’onnz. New to the cast for the fourth season is Sam Witwer as hero Agent Liberty, Rhona Mitra as Mercy Graves, and Brent Spiner as Vice President Baker.

Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

The Charmed reboot was in development last year as a prequel that was set in the 1970s, but this version of the series will take place in the present day. The series is based on a story by Jennie Urman (creator of Jane the Virgin). She will executive produce with Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin (Jane the Virgin writers) who will also pen the script. Brad Silberling (Jane the VirginDynastyReign) will direct. He will also executive produce with Ben Silverman. CBS Television Studios will produce the new Charmed series. The reboot series will star Madeleine Mantock (Into the Badlands), Melonie Diaz (The Belko Experiment) and Sarah Jeffrey (Wayward Pines) as three sisters who discover they are the powerful witches in the world following the death of their mother.

Charmed, launched on the now defunct The WB channel, ran for eight seasons and 178 episodes. It followed the adventures of three Halliwell sisters, Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano), who discover that their family is part of a long line of powerful witches. Doherty left the series at the conclusion of the third season. The finale saw Prue die, but it was revealed at the beginning of the fourth season that the Halliwells had a hidden half sister, Paige (Rose McGowan), who joined the headlining cast from then on.

Just Mercy will be based on Bryan Stevenson’s best-selling memoir of the same name. The story follows world-renowned civil rights defense attorney Stevenson (Jordan) as he recounts his experiences and details the case of a condemned death row prisoner whom he fought to free. The true story is one of redemption, passion and mercy set against a backdrop of a corrupt judicial system which favors the death penalty and targets the poor.

The feature film is directed by Destin Cretton who have previously worked with Larson in the films: Short Term 12 and The Glass Castle. Just Mercy is co-written by Andrew Lanham (Glass Castle) and Cretton. Gil Netter, Asher Goldstein and Jordan are the film’s producers.
