Deadline reports Guy Pearce, Matilda Lutz, and Travis Fimmel are attached to star in Zone 414, a new sci-fi film from director Andrew Baird that sounds an awful lot like Almost Human or Mann & Machine.

The film is currently shooting in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Canadian film distributor Mongrel Media has the new Saw reboot listed under its (apparent) official title, Spiral: From the Book of Saw.
Book of Souls
According to Deadline, Tigers Are Not Afraid director Issa Lopez is attached to direct a film adaptation of Matthew Baker’s short story, Book of Souls, for Searchlight Pictures and producer Noah Hawley. Set in a world where babies are routinely born without souls, the film is said to concern an expectant mother visiting an isolated wellness centre in the desert “with the hopes that it will improve her chances of delivering a healthy baby.”

Yes, I’m doing another season. That might be a massive exclusive that I’m not supposed to say, but it’s unhelpful for me to say [I don’t know] because it would be a massive lie! [Laughs] I absolutely adore it. At some point, these shoes are going to be handed on, but it’s not yet. I’m clinging on tight!
Most Dangerous Game
Seth Rogen, Matt Tolmach, and David F. Sandberg will produce a new series based on Rick Remender’s Fear Agent comic for Amazon. According to THR, the logline is thus: “Interstellar invaders. Time travel. Clones of clones of clones, and lots of whiskey.
Whether he’s battling the scourge of space, going back in time to stop the alien invasion that changed Earth forever, or winning his ex-wife back, there’s nothing that Heath Huston won’t do to try to right the wrongs and gets his family back. He is, after all, the last Fear Agent.”
Ultra Violet & Blue Demon
Meanwhile, The Disney Channel has ordered a new series starring Mexican wrestling icon, Blue Demon, Jr. in which “a 13-year old girl named Violet is chosen by a magical luchador mask to be the successor to her uncle.” While Blue Demon, Jr. will play himself, casting is currently underway for the role of his niece, Violet.
