Kathryn’s In A Reverie – Update

Awoogah! Awoogah!

Actual news news!!!

The business known as show news website Deadline is reporting that Kathryn has signed up to take a role in a new NBC network pilot called Reverie.

Reverie is a vehicle for Sarah Shahi (Person Of Interest) and is centred around the topical idea of virtual reality software.  Apparently the software is causing significant issues for users and Sarah’s Mara behavioural expert and ex-detective is brought in to investigate.

Kathryn’s role is as a Department Of Defense official called Monica Shaw.  Not surprisingly the military are very interested in such technology, especially if it is having psychological effects on those that have experienced it.  If it can be weaponised, they’ll do it.

At present this is just a pilot, an initial episode that is used to showcase the project to the network heads to make a decision of whether to turn it into a series.  As such it is currently classified on IMDb as a TV movie.  We saw the same with the Surgeon General show that Kathryn was involved in a few years ago.  That one didn’t get past the pilot stage.

This early part of the year is very much ‘pilot season’.  Projects have got through the selection process and a few are being put into production as a first episode test.  Those lucky few that become series, likely to start broadcasting in the autumn, would start filming in the summer.  The pilot could be shown as episode 1, or it could be re-worked/filmed if changes are made.

Dennis Haysbert (24), Jessica Lu (Awkward.), and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes) have already joined the cast.  Amblin Television, owned by Steven Spielberg who Kathryn worked with in A.I. and Minority Report, is producing the show created by Mickey Fisher (Extent).

More news on Reverie when we hear it.

Update (25 Feb 2017):  Johnny Messner (Kathryn’s partner) has posted his congratulations to Kathryn in his own inimitable style on Instagram and Twitter.  It goes thusly:

Congrats my honnneeee !!! You just took the whole show up 10000 notches !! You are by far one of the most talented actors I know and a even better momma !!! 😍😍😍😍 I love you for that – link

KM In You Get Me On IMDb & Netflix Pickup

imdb_logo_100x100It’s a little thing but it makes a big difference.

Nearly a year ago, almost in passing, it was announced that Kathryn was due to have a role in the upcoming teen-thriller You Get Me.  It’s a vehicle for young stars Bella Thorne (Shake It Up!), Halston Sage (Bad Neighbours), and Nash Grier (The Deleted).  The plot sounds a bit Fatal Attraction, set in high school.

Kathryn’s name was dropped into reports of the cast expanding alongside the recent NCIS addition Jennifer Esposito.  Subsequent reports didn’t mention Kathryn and it felt increasingly likely that her part had suffered at the hands of the editing process, never to see the light of day.

Now we have the small but important piece of evidence that we may yet see what ever character Kathryn is playing in this movie (at the time of writing we don’t yet have a character name or any description of the role).  Kathryn has been added to the listed cast of You Get Me on the Internet Movie Database website (IMDb).  It may not seem much but it carries some weight.  The film’s page is HERE.

The other piece of news evident from the information on the IMDb page is that You Get Me is now a Netflix movie, suggesting the film will be released exclusively on the streaming platform.  Still no signs of a release date though.

Colony On UK DVD Tomorrow

colony_season_1_dvd_artwork_003After the false start a couple of weeks ago it is looking at season one of the USA network sci-fi-ish drama series Colony might actually be hitting the shelves tomorrow (6th February 2017) here in the UK.

Any further delays and we may have to sending people to the factory.  No green-zone for them!  :-)

The Amazon UK page for the disc is definitely showing the release date as tomorow and allowing pre-orders at time of writing.  Be quick and choose the fastest/most expensive shipping option and you could have on the day.

Season two of Colony has reached the fourth episode in America and, very much as predicted, there has been no mention of Kathryn’s character Charlotte.  Press releases and promo images for upcoming episodes have given us no suggestion that that will change.  Charlotte’s husband (Adrian Pasdar) is shacked up with the woman (the lead character’s sister-in-law) she introduced him to in season one.  We have been getting more insight into the labour camps though.

It should be noted that in a flashback to the initial invasion, the construction of the wall around the Los Angeles ‘block’ the Bowman family (Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies plus kids) live in was shown.  It was a very quick process of dropping large pre-assembled segments into place.  I would imagine that the realities of sealing an even longer border with such an erection may be a little more difficult and time consuming.  But it is fiction after all.

Colony On UK DVD Tomorrow? Maybe Not

colony_season_1_dvd_artwork_003I was going to start this post by saying it could very well be my last post involving the sci-fi-ish drama series Colony.

Kathryn is not likely to be in the second series, which started in the US last week.  The season one DVD is out in America already and the show is available via streaming services.

That being said, the DVD release of the show in Great Britain marks the end of the saga for us on KM UK.

However… it is looking like the scheduling gods have other ideas.

Tomorrow, the 16th of January 2017, was due to see the UK season one DVD release.  The Amazon page for the product has changed to ‘Currently unavailable’, which initially I took as meaning out of stock due to too many pre-orders.  The release date is still shown as the 16th.  Some other sites have the date down as the 6th of February.  I’ve found one that has the discs down for release on both dates.  Go figure!

So… Colony will probably not be available to purchase on DVD from tomorrow.  Thanks for reading  :-)

Netflix & Kill(er) – Bone Tomahawk Hits UK ‘Nets

poster_003_2000x1500When I were a lad we didn’t have any of these fancy streaming services.  No, if you missed a movie at the cinema you had to wait a couple of years before it became available on VHS cassette.  Or, another three or four before one of the handful of available TV channels would deign to a broadcast it.

Nowadays sometimes before a film is released in the picture houses you can legitimately watch it in your own home on TV or laptop, or even on the bus on your phone.  Kids today don’t know they’re born… :-)

Last week the Internety movie playing thingy Netflix made the horror western film Bone Tomahawk available to UK customers via that system of tubes.  If you are a subscriber you can now watch Kurt Russell (The Thing) as the Sheriff set out with a disparate and somewhat desperate band of men (Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins) to rescue some townsfolk from the clutches of a pack of cannibalistic Troglodytes.

And if that doesn’t get you in the mood for Xmas then frankly I don’t know what to suggest  :-)

Kathryn has a small role in Bone Tomahawk as Kurt’s wife.  A couple of scenes show how close they are how concerned she is about him returning safely.

Looking back a year I can see that almost to the day I posted about Bone Tomahawk being due for imminent release on DVD and Blu-ray but acknowledging that all the film world could talk about was Star Wars.  How times have changed…
