L'EDICOLA DI LOU - Stralci, cover e commenti sui telefilm dai media italiani e stranieri

Solo Netflix può permettersi "Altered Carbon"

"Solo Netflix può permettersi di investire in una serie come Altered Carbon, lanciata dalla piattaforma in tutto il mondo. Si tratta dell'adattamento tv dell'omonimo romanzo di Richard Morgan, genere cyber punk ambientato in un futuro distopico. Nell'anno 2384 la coscienza di ogni essere umano (quindi la sua identità profonda, comprensiva di memorie, percezioni, intelletto, quella che potremmo chiamare anima) può essere salvata su un supporto tecnologico rimovibile dal corpo fisico. Così gli umani hanno la possibilità di sopravvivere alla morte fisica e di venire «rimpiantati» in un nuovo corpo che permette loro di proseguire la propria esistenza sotto nuove sembianze, a volte anche molto lontane da quelle precedenti. In questo sfondo s'innesta una trama crime: Takeshi Kovacs è un violento mercenario che si risveglia in un nuovo corpo (quello dell'attore Joel Kinnaman) trecento anni dopo la sua morte fisica: gli viene data l'opportunità di non passare il resto della vita in prigione se aiuterà a risolvere il mistero dell'apparente suicidio dell'uomo più potente e ricco del pianeta nella città di Bay City. L'immaginario e l'estetica della serie sono molto simili al mondo narrativo di un culto come Blade Runner, senz'altro più valorizzati dall'ambiente immersivo e dal grande schermo del cinema che dagli schermi domestici dedicati a Netflix. Ma solo questo colosso di contenuti può investire in un prodotto del genere che prevede altissimi budget destinati a un pubblico potenziale molto di nicchia (anche se l'esperimento simile di Sense 8 non aveva convinto molto). Curioso come il tema della coscienza umana trasferita in una «memoria» esterna al corpo attraversi da tempo anche le riflessioni di una serie come Black Mirror, a testimonianza di come si tratti di una questione sensibile della cultura contemporanea che la fantascienza rimette in circolo nei suoi immaginari".

GOSSIP - Care Sarah Drew e Jessica Capshaw, beccatevi questa! Firmato: Ellen Pompeo. Con...Style
Ellen Pompeo is on a special subscribed cover for InStyle‘s April 2018 issue!
Here’s what the Grey’s Anatomy star had to share:
On negotiating her $575,000/episode rate:“In all negotiations they don’t immediately give in, and this is also quite a big cast, so they have everybody to deal with, but eventually we got what we wanted. I would say the only time you ever have a good negotiating position is if you’re completely willing to walk away. That’s the only real strength you have. And I never really was there until this last round. I asked for everything on Grey’s because I saw a piece of paper that told me it had generated $3 billion for Disney. That information changed the game for me: knowing my numbers and having information as to what my actual worth was. Over the years lots of characters have come and gone, lots of writers have come and gone. The one thing that’s remained on the show is me, so that’s how I arrived at my confidence.”
On communicating with people above you in a professional hierarchy: “I lead with kissing ass… you always want to start with the positive.”
On sticking to what she knows: “…I’ve been on Grey’s Anatomy forever, and I don’t chase relevancy or trophies. A lot of girls would rather have the attention, and then they realize in their 40s that they have no money to feed their kids and they’re fucked…I made the choice to be OK with no awards and no attention and make it just about going to work and punching the clock. Which I think is healthier for the ego down the line.”

GOSSIP - Scoppia lo scandalo "Stranger Things": insulti, mobbing e minacce sul set? Considerando che più della metà del cast è minorenne...

News tratta da "Uproxx"
The minds behind Netflix’s smash hit Stranger Things have acknowledged and spoke out about allegations of verbal abuse on set, noting that they are deeply upset by the claims. The statement comes days after Stranger Things grip Peyton Brown posted about allegations from the set of Stranger Things and her decision not to return for season three. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix found no wrongdoing by Matt and Ross Duffer or anybody else on set, and the pair seemed to indicate that treating everybody fairly is their main concern:
“We are deeply upset to learn that someone felt uncomfortable on our set. Due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed, and for that, we apologize. However, we think it is important not to mischaracterize our set, where we believe strongly in treating everyone fairly regardless of gender, orientation, race, religion, or anything else. We remain totally committed to providing a safe and collaborative working environment for everyone on our productions.”
Brown’s initial post was deleted after comments began to flow in with details separate from her own personal accounts, including one reprinted by Variety that indicated yelling, insults, and threats by the duo with people “fired or forced to quit because of them.” Brown deleted the post and reposted without the comments: 
I guess there’s no better day than #nationalwomensday to say #timesup and announce that I will not be a part of the filming of Season 3 of Stranger Things. Why, you ask? Because I stand with my sisters. I personally witnessed two men in high positions of power on that set seek out and verbally abuse multiple women. I promised myself that if I were ever in a situation to say something that I would. I have 11.5 thousand followers who can hear me say this, TIME IS UP. Women in the film industry are POWERFUL. We will rise and we will scream from mountain tops in support of each other and I will not contribute my time, efforts, and talent to such abusive people. There is too much going on in this world to be regressive. There are too many amazing and highly respected men in respective positions of power that I have had the utmost pleasure of working beside.

NEWS - Negan, abbiamo un problema! "TWD" allo sbando: Lauren Cohan sempre più verso l'addio per il mancato aumento di stipendio (Khary Payton si schiera pubblicamente contro la produzione postando "pagatela!"). L'attrice disdice all'ultimo ospitata al Walker Stalker Con di Londra e Andrew Lincoln la segue a ruota...Ormai le sceneggiature salvadanaio "a gruppetti" si scrivono in base al budget degli attori
News tratta da Deadline
Season 8 of The Walking Dead has gone by the motto of “All Out War,” but off-screen, another type of battle is clearly still in full swing, as the contractual fate of star Lauren Cohan remains unresolved. A battle that has grown to now involve another cast member and even the actress herself, who has portrayed Maggie Rhee on the AMC zombie apocalypse blockbuster since Season 2. Earlier this week, fellow TWD regular Khary Payton became seemingly the first of Cohan’s co-stars to speak out for the actress when he bluntly posted “pay the woman” on his Instagram account. A pivotal figure on the series based on Robert Kirkman’s comics, the CAA-represented Cohan has been fighting for a pay increase in her new TWD contract with AMC, and going forward into its ninth season and beyond. As talks hit an impasse, the much-sought-out actress signed on in February as the female lead opposite Scott Foley in Whiskey CavalierABC’s hourlong action-dramedy pilot from Bill Lawrence, Dave Hemingson and Warner Bros. TV. Now ex-showrunner and TWD franchise Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple told Deadline late last month that “these sorts of negotiations do happen all the time in television and we’re working on it.” How despite the EP’s insistence that “we’re all talking, so stay tuned,” nothing of substance has been achieved, we hear. Which is perhaps why the man who plays Kingdom leader King Ezekiel wasn’t the only one to make a move on the matter this week. After long having been announced as one of the TWD marquee names at London’s Walker Stalker Con this weekend, Cohan suddenly dropped out of the fanfest on March 8 due to a filming schedule change. That alteration was for the Whiskey Cavalier pilot, which is in production as TWD gears up for a Season 9 that Cohan may or may not substantially be a part of at this point. Cohan was supposed to join TWD co-stars current and past like Payton, Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the now-departed Chandler RiggsStar Trek Discovery lead Sonequa Martin-Green and many more at the March 10-11 UK event. Cohan’s Maggie is still a big part of The Walking Dead this season and is a big part of Sunday’s “Dead Or Alive Or” episode. An episode that faces the ABC launch of the new American Idol and Fox’s deft O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession? counter programming at 9 PM ET. BTW – AMC had no response to Payton’s Instagram post of last week. The cabler has nothing to do with the UK confab. Also, Andrew Lincoln was another no-show at Walker Stalker Con it seems as well.
