A slow round up this time around, but it covers two major reboots/continuations.
More on the Twin Peaks revival.
The return of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks on Showcase is looking more and more like a continuation of the original series. Kyle MacLachlan is returning as Agent Dale Cooper. Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook are returning, the former portrayed both Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson, the latter played Bobby Briggs. With any other creator, I’d just say that the series was coming back. With David Lynch, I’m expecting loose ends from the original series that were well hidden to be brought back out.
X-Files gets a reboot.
Fox has confirmed that the X-Files will be rebooted. David Duchovny (Agent Fox Mulder) is interested, provided that Gillian Anderson (Agent Dana Scully) is also on board, but in a limited form. Anderson is also interested, provided that Duchovny and series creator Chris Carter are involved. Fox wants Carter involved. The main snag is finding when all three are available at the same time. Anderson and Duchovny are both working on other shows at the moment.
X-Men: Apocalypse casting announced.
Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, and Alexander Shipp have been announced for the cast of the next X-Men movie. Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on A Game of Thrones, will play Jean Grey. Shipp will portray Storm and Sheridan will play Cyclops.
