​Fox & Ridley Scott Team Up For An Ebola-Inspired TV Series

Filed under: TV News

no title

As if everyone isn't panicked enough!

Ridley Scott has signed on to work on a limited Fox TV series, along with Lynda Obst about the Ebola outbreak!

The duo was already working on the series, which is based on Richard Preston's The Hot Zone, and now that it's topical, it's definitely happening.

Scott is only signed on for the first episode, reportedly, but if he's already put over a year's worth of time into it, we're sure he'll stay on.

This whole concept was supposed to be a movie starring Jodie Foster in 1995, but Outbreak was released and the idea was scrapped.

Now, all of the world is listening to things Ebola related. In fact, Preston is writing an article for the New Yorker next week, and to keep the project authentic, some of the report will be used in the show!

Why Should Death Stop Productivity? Michael Crichton's New Novel Coming THIS FALL!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueR.I.P.

new michael crichton novel coming soon

Okay, so maybe this is a little bit eerie…but is it really going to stop you from reading another book by the guy who wrote Jurassic Park?!?!?

WAY back in April '09, we learned that Crichton would be releasing two books from beyond the grave.

His adventure book Pirate Latitudes was released in Sept '10, and now his next book Micro will be released in November.

The book is "a thriller about a biotech company in Hawaii and graduate students who end up stranded and endangered in a rain forest."

Author Richard Preston, known for his best-seller nonfiction book about the Ebola virus entitled The Hot Zone was brought on to complete Crichton's final novel.

Here's what Preston had to say about it:

"Michael was writing at the top of his game, with a grand sense of adventure, into an eerie world that seems almost beyond imagining. For me, it was an irresistible challenge to finish the novel, and I was driven by a desire to honor the work and imagination of one of our time's most visionary and creative authors."

All we can say is we truly hope Richard Preston does justice to Michael's work with his contribution to this novel.

Will U read Michael Crichton's new book? Do U think Richard Preston will do a good job completing Crichton's final work?
