Step by Step star Patrick Duffy, like anyone else, would like to know if the kid who co-starred as Mark is dead now or what, and he’s suggesting we finally find out. With a reunion movie.
“I would love to work with Suzanne [Somers] again,” Duffy recently told The Hollywood Reporter while they updated their record of Patrick Duffy’s hopes and dreams. “The Step by Step cast was so wonderful to be with. They were my family and I think a little two-hour special about where these people are – not a documentary, but actually doing a show – seeing where they all come to over the years.”
While it’s now a sure thing that this would NOT be a documentary, as much as you’d naturally assume it would be a Step by Step documentary, what’s quite a bit less sure is how likely a reunion would be. ABC Family is working on a similar TGIF revival idea with the cast of Boy Meets World, but these days, Suzanne Somers is quite busy spreading the wisdom of how cleaning supplies make you kill people and Mark, it turns out, is not dead, and is reportedly at work teaching political science at Biola University.
Lucky for fans and Patrick Duffy, that’s not the only old role Patrick Duffy is more than willing to reprise. The old Dallas star can currently be seen on TNT’s newer Dallas, and, without prompting, he also offered that he’d come back to play the title role in his short-lived 1977 series The Man From Atlantis.
“It would be interesting to play that character 40 years later,” he said of being the final Atlantean of the late ’70s. “Not trying to be a superhero, but to be a sage voice of that kind of sci-fi thing… I would be the Obi Wan of The Man From Atlantis at that point.” As it wasn’t specified, assumedly that would be a documentary. Kickstarter?

With John Carter failing to really take off like they thought it would, the Walt Disney Company has announced that, screw it, they’re just going to buy up someone else’s already-successful CGI space epic. Specifically, they’re going to purchase LucasFilm and make some more of those Star Wars everyone likes so much.
The studio today announced the acquisition of LucasFilm Ltd. in exchange for $ 4.05 billion in cash and stocks. Lucas had earlier this year expressed interest in getting out of the blockbuster business, and it seems he’s now doing just that, with LucasFilm co-chair Kathleen Kennedy moving up to the president’s seat while the company’s founder, in his own words, will “pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers” who will presumably not try to ruin it so hard.
But, of course, the real smack-your-desk “holy shit” of this story is Disney’s accompanying announcement that they don’t plan on squandering the fact that episode numbers could exist beyond VI. There aren’t many specifics yet, but the studio sure isn’t wasting any time on moving forward with another Star Wars sequel: they’re trumpeting that they’ll get one in theaters by 2015, with Kennedy serving as executive producer and Lucas staying on as merely a creative consultant, someone to turn to if the new director can’t think of any racial stereotypes or silly voices for the new CGI aliens.
Though the deal gives Disney control of all the Star Wars characters, as well as their own roster and their Marvel acquisitions, it is not clear if or when Jar Jar, Thor, and Pooh will be made available on a single varsity jean jacket.
First proposed back in 2009 before its carcass was rightfully tossed whole into a trashcan to rot, a Heathcliff feature film is once again on the table thanks to Waterman Entertainment, the production company behind Alvin and the Chipmunks, Stuart Little, Kull the Conqueror, and the recently-announced remakes of Mister Ed and The Brave Little Toaster.
Aiding Waterman in their task to gobble this thing down to an in-tact skeleton of brand name and CGI cat is Heathcliff rights owner Peter Gallagher, who is not actor Peter Gallagher. He’s been writing and drawing the Heathcliff comic strip–which is still somehow running, even as the print industry and absolutely anyone who reads Heathcliff is rapidly dwindling–since his uncle, creator George Gately, died in 2001. He made the deal directly with the production company, who promised to “tap [his] wealth of knowledge on the character and ensure the storylines remain true to the brand and their global fan base” that questionably exists, seeing as how a Heathcliff cartoon hasn’t been on the air for 24 years. But Waterman has thought of that, too, and has announced production of a 13-episode season of an all-new Heathcliff series to reintroduce the character to a younger, unfamiliar audience. Soon, the “global fan base” will be rebuilt, and the nations of the world will once again unite under the umbrella of there also being this other, shittier Garfield.
Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s memoirs Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story hits bookstands tomorrow, so naturally he’s spent the past few days doing promotional appearances where he’s either confirmed banging Brigitte Nielsen while living with Maria Shriver before they were married or immediately noticing the son of the maid he banged looked exactly like him so Read More …
Showing little reverence for history–save for their own rich tradition of making bad decisions about what should be on television–NBC and Sony Pictures Television are developing a series in which a young Thomas Alva Edison will be re-imagined as a man patenting inventions for the benefit of crime-busting.
Titled Edison, the procedural will take place in 1880s Manhattan, where Longmire writer Daniel C. Connolly will imagine “the under-trained and under-equipped New York Police force” are in need of a certain someone’s “inventor instincts and retro-cool devices.” (“Let’s interrogate this suspect under a harsh light, right after I invent a retro-cool viable light bulb,” for example) Deadline notes that the tone is said to be evocative of the recent Sherlock Holmes films, though easier parallels could probably be drawn to similar recent and upcoming revisionist histories like ABC’s failed crimefighting Poe pilot, Gary Ross’s action-thriller take on Houdini, Abe Lincoln: Dracula Axer, or any of the myriad Leonardo da Vinci projects looking to repeat The Tick‘s success in depicting the inventor-artist as a potential action figure. As for Edison’s casting, all that’s currently known is Matthew Perry definitely would be up for that next after Go On is canceled.
“This Passionberry Tea says it’s time get locoooo…” If you haven’t heard by now, Amanda Bynes‘ agent, publicist and lawyer all quit on her which I’m sure has absolutely nothing to do with her calling up People and saying she’s doing “amazing” despite mountains of photographic proof that she’s hemp-death on wheels, and then attacking Read More …
After decades of fighting through the World of Film, Roger Ebert reaches the final boss: the movie of HIMSELF.
As tweeted by the critic himself, Ebert’s new-to-paperback memoir Life Itself has been optioned by Hoop Dreams director Steve James, screenwriter Steven Zaillian (Gangs of New York), and executive producer Martin Scorsese for adaptation into a documentary. Reached for comment by Indiewire, Ebert responded:
“This dropped out of the blue. They say they have a good idea for an approach. I believe Steve James’ ‘Hoop Dreams’ is one of the greatest documentaries ever made, and my hopes for this are so high. I never thought of my book as a doc. I’m keeping hands off any involvement, such as with the screenplay, because I don’t want to be a third wheel. Whatever they do I will be fascinated.”
Hopefully the documentary will remember to ask him what’s good right now.
