  • Amber Entertainment and Chicagofilms plan to bring Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific to the big screen. Chicagofilms’ Bob Balaban says about the remake, “Our movie will be a tougher, more realistic re-telling of the same classic story.” That doesn’t sound like happy talk! [Variety]
  • TBS and Adult Swim have picked up The Cleveland Show for syndication. [Insert talking animal remembering random flashback here.] [” target=”_blank”>Deadline]
  • Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, and Michael Fassbender are set for thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, which is based on John Le Carre’s spy novel. (The book also inspired a TV series in Britain starring Alec Guinness.) [Variety]
  • Mark Pellegrino, a.k.a. Lost‘s Jacob, has been tapped to star in SyFy’s series Being Human, which follows a vampire, ghost, and werewolf who all live together. Pellegrino will play the vampire’s mentor, who undoubtedly will send the blood-sucker on a redemptive personal journey, only to reveal six years later that life is all about some light in a cave.
