Bryan Cranston interview: Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams

Rob Leane Oct 23, 2017

Bryan Cranston chats to us about his involvement in Channel 4 and Amazon’s Phillip K. Dick anthology series, Electric Dreams...

Amazon and Channel 4’s Philip K. Dick anthology series, Electric Dreams, adapts ten of the iconic author’s short stories into hour-long TV dramas.

The show has the mighty Bryan Cranston involved as an actor and an executive producer. This marks the second Amazon production that Cranston has pulled double duty on, following on from Sneaky Pete.

Along with a bunch of other journalists, Den Of Geek took part in a roundtable interview with Cranston on the set of Electric Dreams, on an offensively hot day back in June. Here’s how it went...

I think what we all want to know is the genesis of how Electric Dreams came together.

It did come together. I bumped into Michael Dinner, who was a director that I knew,

Why Flash Gordon Reboot Has Been on Indefinite Hold
Back in the spring of 2015, 20th Century Fox moved forward with its long-awaited Flash Gordon remake, setting director Matthew Vaughn at the helm, but we haven't heard anything about it since then. It turns out there's a very good reason for that, with Matthew Vaughn revealing in a new interview that he's still been working on it, but his original vision for the story was basically taken by Marvel's 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. Here's what the director had to say below, when asked if he's still working on a Flash Gordon movie.

"Yeah, we've been working on it. For me, the only problem with Flash Gordon is Guardians (of the Galaxy) kind of stole what I would have liked to have done with it. You've got Star Wars, you've got Guardians, so you've got to have your own space opera, but you have to find something that can survive among these two very,

The endless adaptability of Philip K Dick

From the new Blade Runner to Channel 4’s Electric Dreams, the insatiable hunger for ‘Pkd’ stories on screen shows no sign of abating

With the Channel 4 series of dramas based on his short stories starting, Philip K Dick has cemented his reputation as one of the most adapted science fiction authors of the modern age.

The most famous big-screen outing of recent years was Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, released in 1982, the year the author died. But there has also been Total Recall, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (and its 2012 remake); Minority Report (2002), with Tom Cruise; the Richard Linklater “rotoscoped” version of A Scanner Darkly, which overlayed animation on live-action footage of Keanu Reeves; and 2011’s The Adjustment Bureau.

New Trailer For Bruce Lee Pic ‘Birth Of The Dragon’

His only previous directorial credit being 2011’s “The Adjustment Bureau,” longtime screenwriter George Nolfi‘s (“Ocean’s Twelve,” “The Bourne Ultimatum“) latest directorial effort, “Birth of the Dragon,” finds him switching gears a bit. Inspired by the true story of young Bruce Lee‘s public face-off with a kung-fu master in San Francisco circa 1965, ‘Birth’ will likely feature significantly fewer hats than Nolfi’s last picture.

Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park Leave ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Because Pay Equality Still Doesn’t Exist

Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park Leave ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Because Pay Equality Still Doesn’t Exist
After starring in the rebooted TV series since its inception, Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park are leaving “Hawaii Five-0.” The reason is disappointing but not surprising: The two unsuccessfully sought pay equality with Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan, their longtime co-stars; Variety reports that CBS’ final offer to Kim and Park was as much as 10-15% lower than the other two.

“I will never forget meeting Daniel while still writing the pilot and being certain there was no other actor who I’d want to play Chin Ho Kelly,” said Peter Lenkov, one of the show’s executive producers.

“Needless to say, Daniel has been an instrumental part of the success of ‘Hawaii Five-0’ over the past 7 seasons and it has personally been a privilege to know him.

The Greatest Election Movies

Author: Linda Marric

With American primaries and presidential elections lasting sometimes up to 18 months, it’s no wonder Hollywood cannot seem to get enough of campaign-trail dramas. From quirky comedies, to serious thrillers based on real events, there seems to be an infinite amount of scripts and stories to tell, each offering a different angle on the subject of electoral shenanigans and political intrigue.

The UK may not do elections on the same mammoth scale as its American cousins, but like it or not, right now we do not seem to go more than a year without one major political race or another. With a surprise general election taking place today what better time for us to take a look at some of the most memorable films about elections ever made?

He plays Lee Chandler, a man destroyed by a personal tragedy that prompts him to leave his hometown for Boston, an hour’s drive away, where he lives a solitary life as a janitor. But when his brother (Kyle Chandler) dies of heart failure, Lee has to return home to take care of his teenaged nephew (Lucas Hedges) and confront his past.

Kenneth Lonergan’s ‘Manchester by the Sea’: How to Make a Best Picture Contender

Kenneth Lonergan’s ‘Manchester by the Sea’: How to Make a Best Picture Contender
There are so many ways a movie can go wrong; to receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination, everything must go right. At the end of the New York Film Festival, the one movie that notches all the boxes is “Manchester by the Sea.”

“It’s like surfing,” said “Manchester by the Sea” producer Chris Moore. “If you catch the right wave with the right movement on the right project, it turns into one of the movies you love. All these same people have made movies you love and they have also made movies you hate. It’s not because they’re less talented or don’t know how to make a movie, it’s because the stars didn’t align, shit didn’t go the way it was supposed to.”

Birth of the Dragon Trailer: Bruce Lee Vs. Wong Jack Man
Just days after the poster arrived for the martial arts biopic Birth of the Dragon, the trailer has finally dropped. While this movie isn't the first to address Bruce Lee's legend, it is the only one to detail a legendary fight between Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man, which helped define Bruce Lee and turn him into a legend. The film premiered last week at the Toronto International Film Festival, but a domestic release date has not been issued.

An affectionate nod to the classic Kung Fu films of the 1970s, Birth of the Dragon is a dramatization of the true life but much disputed fight between Kung Fu greats Bruce Lee (Philip Ng) and Shaolin Master Wong Jack Man (Yu Xia) in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1964. Based on Michael Dorgan's magazine article, "Bruce Lee's Toughest Fight," the film is written by Chris Wilkinson and Stephen J. Rivele,

Bruce Lee battles Wong Jack Man in first trailer for Birth of the Dragon

We brought you a poster earlier in the week, and now following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, the first trailer has arrived online for director George Nolfi’s (The Adjustment Bureau) Bruce Lee biopic Birth of the Dragon, which focuses on Lee’s private fight against martial arts master Wong Jack Man; check it out here, along with another poster…

Birth Of The Dragon explores the “still-disputed private brawl between martial arts masters Bruce Lee (Philip Ng) and Wong Jack Man (Yu Xia) in 1964 as the fuel for a San Francisco-set coming-of-age story involving a rough and tumble young white man (Billy Magnussen) who matches the feuding fighting legends in the brawl as he pursues a Romeo and Juliet romance with a young Chinese immigrant (Jingjing Qu) under the control of the Chinese mob.”

Birth of the Dragon is yet to secure a release date, but we’ll keep you posted.

Birth Of The Dragon Trailer Features Young Bruce Lee vs Shaolin Master Wong Jack Man

Promo trailer is now online (via Deadline) for Birth of the Dragon starring Billy Magnussen, Xia Yu, Philip Ng, Jinging Qu, and Xing Jing.

Set against the backdrop of San Francisco’s Chinatown, this cross-cultural film chronicles Bruce Lee’s emergence as a martial-arts superstar after his legendary secret showdown with fellow martial artist Wong Jack Man.

It's amazing to think of what Bruce Lee accomplished — and when. Years before martial arts action became a staple of Hollywood and global cinema, and years before Asian-Americans became a strong demographic presence in California, Bruce Lee brought the majesty and discipline of centuries-old combat to America, and added a little showmanship of his own. It wasn't easy.

In 1960s Oakland, a hotbed of hippie counterculture and radical politics, young Bruce Lee (Philip Wan-Lung Ng) does some radical cultural work of his own, teaching a martial arts style he himself developed. The Bay
