Justice Society: World War II
A time-travelling Barry Allen helps the Justice Society fight World War II in the trailer for DC’s latest animated feature.
Deadline reports Universal will team with Keshet Studios for a TV series based on last year’s sci-fi comedy, Save Yourselves! The story concerns a Brooklyn couple oblivious to an invasion of ethanol-drinking alien puffballs after deciding to go off-the-grid for a weekend.
/Film reports Idris and Sabrina Elba will produce Dantai, an anime series at Crunchyroll described as an “Afro-futuristic science fiction” story. The series “will be set in a city where the rise of biotechnology has created an ever-widening gap between the haves and have-nots. Two rising stars from either side of this divide are pitted against each other in a story that will ultimately explore equality and kinship within a corrupt society.”
Ewan McGregor confirmed to Eddie Izzard that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will begin filming this autumn in Los Angeles.
We start making it in the late spring, and I think we’re going to be shooting it here in L.A. It’s so funny – every week there’s a new report…there’s another tabloid expose that we’re shooting it in some bizarre town somewhere. Then we’re meant to be making it in Boston, then, ‘No, it wasn’t Boston, it was Boston, England.’ But we’re not. We’re shooting it in L.A.
