  • JMS at SDCC 2016

    Finally announced it officially that JMS is a Special Guest at SDCC. As busy as he is these days, it's always in question.

    And yes, I still take the chance and get tickets and plane and non-refundable hotel. I'd hate it if he didn't come but it would still be worth the trip.

    And, always a laugh, his 'bio' is up now:

    J. MichaelStraczynski
    Writer/producer, Sense8; writer, Flash Earth One, Amazing Spider-Man

    No one quite understands why, but apparently J. Michael Straczynski has another hit TV show on his hands, the globe-spanning Sense8, now available on Netflix. In addition, he's working on a Red Mars series for Spike TV based on the novels by Kim Stanley Robinson, adapting [removed premature announcement], writing Flash Earth One for DC, finishing Dream Police for Image/Joe's Comics, and his seminal comics maxi-series Rising Stars has been optioned for a major motion picture, which he is also writing. Honestly, why hasn't this guy's career flamed out by now? Seriously, enough is enough.

    Nice. Here's hoping for some news on the B5 movie!
    Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

    Kosh: Good!

        I am struggling to find any official announcement anywhere, so perhaps it leaked out with the SDCC announcement?

          Apparently it's not official as yet. I've removed the reference.

            I hope someone in the audience asks him about B5!!!!!!! I tried asking him on FB, but I don't expect an answer, of course.

                Yay! Hope he answers with something concrete or specific. And not, "wouldn't you like to know." or "I can't tell you," or ,"Yes, I'd still like to do a movie sometime in 2029."

                  Well, whatever he says, I'll be there to pass the word back to y'all as soon as I can.

                  BUT! I really don't ever want to hear 'I wish he wouldn't say anything until....', either. We (in general) are the ones who ask him so it's not fair to get on his case (figuratively) when he gives answers based on his knowledge at that time. Sometimes I think some fans must live lives where nothing ever changes.

                          Just found this from Claudia:

                          We're going to Comicon baby! Morgan and I will be there Saturday 23/7 on a world building panel to discuss the world of Wolf's Empire and also signing copies of the book at the Tor/Macmillan booth. Hope to see you there!

                            Oooohhhh...looks like there'll be at least one member of the Sense8 cast at SDCC!

                            The Exorcist. See a special preview screening of the full first episode with stars Alfonso Herrera (“Sense8,” “The Chosen”), Ben Daniels (“Flesh and Bone,” “House of Cards”) and Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Geena Davis (“Commander in Chief,” “Beetlejuice”) and writer/producer Jeremy Slater (“Fantastic Four”)! Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, Academy Award-nominated “The Exorcist” terrified audiences around the world. Now, more than four decades later, “The Exorcist” returns as a contemporary psychological TV thriller on Fox this fall, following the story of two very different priests tackling one family’s case of terrifying demonic possession.
                            No date or time or location yet.

                            Alfonso Herrera plays the lover of Lito, one of the sensates.

                            I'm *really* hoping that JMS will have a Sense8 panel again this year. And would love it if Netflix allowed the cast to come, too.

                              I really need to find the radio show she did with Pat Tallman, as well. Thanks for the reminder, Jan! "giggles"
