    Quark Says IFC’s Eddie Izzard Comedy BULLET IN THE FACE Is ‘The Year’s Most Original Show’!!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    The original press release for the show:

    IFC’S ORIGINAL SCRIPTED COMEDY, BULLET IN THE FACE, BEGINS PRODUCTION IN MONTREAL
    Actors Eddie Izzard and Eric Roberts Guest Star in the Original Series

    Set to Debut in Summer 2012

    NEW YORK, NY – October 6, 2011 – Production begins this week in Montreal, Canada on IFC’s newest original scripted series, Bullet in the Face, a six-part, half-hour comedic action thriller. Creator and executive producer Alan Spencer (Sledge Hammer!) developed the series with producers and executive producers Jesse Prupas and Evi Regev of Muse Entertainment and Just For Laughs Television. The cast includes Max Williams as Gunter Vogler, Neil Napier as Lieutenant Karl Hagerman, Jessica Steen as Commissioner Eva Braden, and Kate Kelton as Martine Mahler, alongside guest stars Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie, Ocean’s Thirteen) and Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, The Expendables) as notorious crime lords. The series is directed and co-executive produced by Erik Canuel (Barrymore, Bon Cop, Bad Cop) and will debut on IFC in summer 2012.

    “Bullet in the Face melds the best of the action/thriller genre with IFC’s comedic sensibility,” said Debbie DeMontreux, senior vice president of original programming, IFC. “This is television like viewers have never seen before and Alan Spencer is the perfect ‘slightly off’ talent to help us bring this new format to audiences.”

    “Just for Laughs and Muse Entertainment have long been searching for a unique and edgy comedy to produce together and we were thrilled to find a fantastic and supportive broadcast partner in IFC. We are proud to say that Bullet in the Face is unlike anything else out there, combining hilarity, thrills and non-stop action,” say Executive Producers Michael Prupas (Muse Entertainment) and Bruce Hills (Just for Laughs).

    “I am very happy to be doing this show for a network that is 'slightly off' as I have been off my whole life,” commented Alan Spencer.

    Following a botched jewel heist, sociopath criminal Gunter Vogler awakens in a hospital, surrounded by cops, his head wrapped in bandages. When the bandages come off Gunter’s new face is revealed and police force him to work undercover to take down the city’s crime lords.
    Odd. Usually networks are not keen on the centerpiece of their show, in this case, ABC's The Munsters' Eddie Izzard, having other shows going. Maybe because it's IFC and such a small show, but still. This does sound fun though.

    Like this. He plays the Captain's brother, who has plans... Maybe they will actually get to them before the season ends. I swear this show just grinds wheels like nobodies business.

    Thomas Jane Joins Cast of Frank Darabont’s New TNT Series L.A. NOIR

    Sorry, this just got must watch. Loves me some Tom Jane.

    As we reported a few months back, writer/director Frank Darabont cushioned his ousting from AMC’s The Walking Dead by swiftly landing a gig with TNT to helm their period drama L.A. Noir. The project is based on the book L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City which focuses on the decades-long conflict between Los Angeles police chief William Parker and mobster / former boxer Mickey Cohen.

    Darabont already succeeded in pulling several exited cast members from his former series to his new project (to avoid spoilers for anyone behind on their viewing, names will be revealed after the jump). Now, Darabont is in talks with Thomas Jane (Hung), whose HBO series was recently cancelled after three seasons, to play mobster Bugsy Siegel. For more on the project, hit the jump.

    Though Jane was unavailable for the pilot, which wrapped production over the weekend, The Hollywood Reporter has learned he will likely be involved if TNT orders the project to series.

    In addition to casting Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes) as a young mob “fixer,” Darabont also snagged Walking Dead alums Jon Bernthal (who will star as LAPD cop Joe Teague), Jeffrey DeMunn (as Hal Morrison, a detective and head of the LAPD’s mob squad) and Andrew Rothenberg (playing a member of Hal’s team). British comedic actor and geek extraordinare Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) is also guest staring in the pilot, rounding out an impressive team that includes The Social Network producer Michael DeLuca as well as Alissa Phillips (Moneyball) as co-executive producer.

    Of course, if Darabont is looking for credible gangsters, there happens to be another one recently out of work on a related series, Boardwalk Empire. Hey, if Darabont can resurrect humans as zombies, why not Michael Pitt as Jimmy Darmody 2.0?

    Joe Carnahan’s CONTINUE Moving Forward at Fox


    this sounds ok but i just wanted to post so I could agree with this...

    Though it’s still a little hard to believe, director Joe Carnahan’s The Grey remains one of the best films I’ve seen so far this year. The “Liam Neeson fights wolves” movie blindsided me as a surprisingly introspective and meditative look at survival, life, and death, anchored by an emotionally gut-punching performance from Neeson
