    Mark Strong In Talks To Reprise Role In LOW WINTER SUN American Remake | Collider

    AMC is looking to add another dark police drama to its roster with Low Winter Sun, which originally aired in Britain as a miniseries in 2006. The revamped American version, which will be a co-production the Dutch Endemol Studios and AMC, will be written and executive produced by Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds). Like the series on which it will be based, this version will feature a detective who murders another detective, believing it to be the perfect crime.

    In the new series, Mark Strong is likely to reprise his role of that murderous detective, Frank Agnew, with the setting moving from Edinburgh to Detroit. It will also feature James Ransone (Treme) as Damon Callis, a member of the Detroit organized crime syndicate into which Agnew will be drawn. For more on the project, hit the jump.

    The original British series was nominated for a Best Drama BAFTA, and Strong’s performance was highly praised (he played one of two cops involved in the murder, whereas the AMC series will feature only one). The original was an extremely dark and dour, though stylized, thriller that told a tale of murder, deception, revenge and corruption, which Deadline has confirmed will be the same thrust of the new series. Strong was most recently seen in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and will be featured in Kathryn Bigelow‘s latest project Zero Dark Thirty.

    Fans of showrunner David Simon‘s work will recognize James Ransone in his many small but unforgettable parts in series like The Wire, Generation Kill and Treme. Simon’s continued partnership with him speaks volumes – though Ransone is not a typical leading man, he oozes a nervous kind of charisma that should serve him well in his Low Winter Sun gangster role.

    AMC has never declined to produce a show that it accepts as a pilot, so hopefully the promising series will turn up on the network in the near future for a full run.
    And I'm in...just like that.

    Boooooooooooo. It certainly had its faults, but I would have liked to see what they did with Season 3. The two leads were well worth watching, whatever the story. Oh well, I still have the Danish original to get through. I'll get going on that once I'm done with BB. Speaking of which, about halfway through Season 4 now and man, was Mike a fantastic addition or what? I've seen this actor in a million things before, but never in a role where he could show of his chops like this. Really love Mike and Jesse's development into a much more multi-faceted character. Walt, on the other hand, seems to have gone a long, long way away from the guy he was in season one. Jesse's development seems to have come at Walt's expense.

    I assume I'll catch up to you all just in time to wait a year for the last season.

    Agreed. I liked the Killing. Wanted more. Oh well.

    Mike is the best character on a show filled with great ones i.m.o. Great character actor(48 Hrs, the 'henchman' in BH Cop)...ran into him in a Florida airport 25 years or so ago. Nice guy, at least he was at the time. The best stuff w/ Mike is when he goes from being 'poppop' to killing people as if it's just another job. Of all the people on the show he seems to be the one with the strongest, most defined moral code/loyalty/common sense. It makes him complicated as hell and fascinating.

    AMC Developing AREA 51 Series | Collider

    Area 51 is the most famous military installation in the world. And it doesn’t exist. Located a mere seventy-five miles outside of Las Vegas in Nevada’s desert, the base has never been acknowledged by the U.S. government-but Area 51 has captivated imaginations for decades.

    Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing itself was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

    Annie Jacobsen had exclusive access to nineteen men who served the base proudly and secretly for decades and are now aged 75-92, and unprecedented access to fifty-five additional military and intelligence personnel, scientists, pilots, and engineers linked to the secret base, thirty-two of whom lived and worked there for extended periods. In Area 51, Jacobsen shows us what has really gone on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear weapons to building super-secret, supersonic jets to pursuing the War on Terror.

    This is the first book based on interviews with eye witnesses to Area 51 history, which makes it the seminal work on the subject. Filled with formerly classified information that has never been accurately decoded for the public, Area 51 weaves the mysterious activities of the top-secret base into a gripping narrative, showing that facts are often more fantastic than fiction, especially when the distinction is almost impossible to make.

    Ok, who is lying here?

    Dear DISH Subscriber:


    Did you know that AMC just received the most Emmy nominations of any basic cable channel? 34 nominations for shows like "Breaking Bad", "Mad Men", "The Walking Dead" and "Hell on Wheels". Yet despite the popularity and demand for these shows, DISH continues to black out AMC, IFC, WE tv, and Sundance Channel. To add insult to injury, DISH continues to charge you for them; you just no longer receive them.

    DISH's decision to drop AMC, WEtv, IFC and Sundance Channel had nothing to do with our fees, or our shows. In fact, unlike almost every other dispute you see between providers and programmers, and despite DISH's misleading claims to the contrary, this is not about fees.

    The simple truth is that DISH is using their consumers as pawns to attempt to gain leverage in a lawsuit involving an old and unrelated business venture that has nothing to do with AMC, nothing to do with our shows or fees, and certainly nothing to do with DISH subscribers, who just want to watch the shows they love and are paying DISH for. You will not see any AMC Networks' shows on DISH any time soon.

    In other words, since DISH's reason for depriving you of AMC programming is based on a lawsuit that won't be resolved for a long time, this problem won't be solved shortly, unlike other disputes between programmers and providers, which typically are resolved in a matter of days (weeks at most).

    If you want to watch "Breaking Bad"," Hell on Wheels," "The Walking Dead" and "Mad Men," you will have to switch TV providers. We can help you do that. The good news is, every other cable, phone and satellite company
    -- except DISH -- carries AMC in their basic package. Many providers are offering special incentives for people to switch. Call now at 1-855-2-DROP-DISH (1-855-237-6734) and let us help you gain access to the shows your friends and neighbors are watching.

    We can help you regain access to AMC, IFC, Sundance Channel and WE tv by calling the above number, visiting Keep AMC Networks or contacting us on Twitter @AMC_Assist.

    Thank you for your support of our shows and our networks. We want you to be able to watch the TV you love, and we'll do whatever we can to help make that possible.

    Sincerely,
    AMC Networks

    Wait, Hell on Wheels(WHICH I LOVE) got Emmy Noms. YES!!!!!!!!


    Ok, so I watched the 2 eps of Breaking Bad this morning.

    And we have a definite shift. Walt has lost his humanity. His sympathy. Because he blew someone up? Nope. Because he no longer fears. He took on a police evidence room, not with the 'can we actually do this?'...but how can we do this. He is calculating, cold...empty. Even when he tells Skyler 'we do this for the best reason...family', it's with the empty non-blinking voice of a sociopath. Yet...on the other hand we have Jesse. Who breaks down crying thinking about how he almost shot 'Mr. White' for what he actually did do. And Mike...who we are starting to get a better idea of. A man who does what he does...for family. And a man whose usual calculated life has taken a turn for the worse because he is caught trying to protect what he has spent so long to create by getting caught in the vortex. And he is now the sympathetic heart of this show...which has thrown some people. Nobody is either good or bad...it's a little of both. I LOVE this show, and it almost seems fated that the endgame isn't going to please everyone.

    You nailed it, jd.

    (Ep 3 Spoilers)

    Man, he's already thinking about killing Mike. Not because he needs the money, just simply because he challenges Walt's dominance and ego. And I love how Walt appeared to be caring and trusting of Jesse, only to manipulate him once again.
