Kajishima Masaki will be directing a new “Tenchi Muyo!” OVA series. Among the gems loosed in this interview: the villain is known simply as Z, and Tenchi will finally have to choose between his bevy of girls. (Oh, how I wish I had that problem…)
Two episodes of “3rd Rock From The Sun” were filmed last Tuesday, which just might be their last. NBC has yet to determine whether they’ll renew the sitcom, so these episodes were written as a possible series finale. (Granted, the show’s so darn goofy that they could write themselves back out of any corner easily, but that’s sorta beside the point.)
You heard me right — not even the Powerpuff Girls can stand up to… their own voices! The Wire reports that Cartoon Network will begin casting sound-alikes for the three actresses that voice the Powerpuff Girls on TV; there were issues with the actresses’ pay. (Basically, Cartoon Network wanted to pay them like they were doing a few TV shows, and the ladies wanted a cut of the lucrative movie profits.)
Finally! Not only is Akira being re-released on VHS and released on DVD this fall, but it’s getting a theatrical re-release this spring, and they’re burning a cool million on cleaning up the soundtrack and Dolby Digital. I’m a little worried about the fact that they’re planning to re-dub the movie, but you can’t have everything. As long as there’s still long tortured screams of “Kanedaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” I’ll be happy.
According to this article, Sarah Michelle Gellar says she’ll leave “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” if the show jumps ship. Rumors have been swirling that Buffy might leave The WB for Fox or ABC.
Remember the good old days (i.e. just a few years ago) when we could count on all Star Trek games to, well, suck? Then we got “Voyager: Elite Force,” and now we’re getting this preview of DS9: Dominion Wars, which looks to be another pretty darn cool game.
Harlan Ellison has, of course, been writing kickass SF for, it seems, forever. He wrote for Star Trek, and consulted on Babylon 5. In 1964, he wrote an episode of the original Outer Limits called “Demon With A Glass Hand,” which went on to win a Writers Guild award.
Anyway, Dimension Films has bought the rights to make “Demon” into a movie. Way to go, Harlan.
A judge ordered a man to stand trial for allegedly stalking “Star Trek Voyager” star Jeri Ryan.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Alan Ellis ruled Wednesday that there was sufficient to order Marlon Pagtakhan, 22, to stand trial on five counts, including stalking and extortion.
(Thanks to the AP news service for feeding me this.)
