Altered_Carbon_cover_1_(Amazon)••• Netflix is set to make a 1o-episode series based on Richard Morgan’s 2002 award-winning cyberpunk noir sci-fi novel Altered Carbon. The series will be created, penned and executive produced by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Terminator Genesys, Alita: Battle Angel).

The story is set in a dystopian 25th century in which human mind has been digitised and the soul can be transferred from body to body; bodies are now called sleeves. Takeshi Kovacs is a disgraced former elite warrior called an Envoy who’s resleeved after a 500 year “imprisonment” to solve a “murder” in a world where death has a very different meaning.

Kalogridis acquired the rights to Altered Carbon, and the other books in the “Takeshi Kovacs” series four years ago then wrote a spec screenplay with David H Goodman which she’s been shopping round studios since. Netflix has finally bitten.

Altered Carbon is one of the most seminal pieces of post-cyberpunk hard science fiction out there, ” says Kalogridis, “a dark, complex noir story that challenges our ideas of what it means to be human when all information becomes encodable, including the human mind.” [via Deadline]

••• Eagle-eyed film fans have spotted that the trailer for Suicide Squad reveals the name of the film’s composer in the credits: Steven Price, best known for his Oscar-winning score for Gravity. He previously worked with director David Ayer on Fury. Other credits include The World’s End and Attack The Block.

••• The Angry Birds try to convince you that seeing films at the cinema is the best way to see films. Well, we would agree if the banned people eating popcorn and slurping Coke really noisily…

••• Jet Li will play the villain in the third xXx film, going head-to-head with franchise star, Vin Diesel as Xander Cage. xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage will also star Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black), UFC fighter Conor McGregor and  Samuel L Jackson (do we really need to put anything in brackets after his name?).

Deadpool_cat••• Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld is being almost embarrassingly complimentary about the new film version of his creation: “This is my second time seeing it and it was even better than the first time,” Liefeld told fans at a surprise screening in Los Angeles. “That sounds like something Deadpool would say. But, here’s the deal: 25 years worth of Deadpool. This movie comes out 25 years to the day we published him at Marvel and you couldn’t get a better gift if you’re a Deadpool fan and I have seen 25 years of stories come and go…[but] back in 2009 I freaked out when I read the screenplay because Deadpool has never ever been better than he was in that screenplay. And when I saw this movie six weeks ago I was like, ‘How much of this script will carry?’ and what you just saw is the best version of Deadpool I have ever experienced in my life…” He then went on to thank everybody involved in a film –individually – in a list that began to sound like an Oscars acceptance speech.

••• And here’s a new DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow trailer for you. Because we’re sure you haven’t seen enough DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow trailers…

rosariodawson_daredevil••• Claire Temple – the character played by Rosario Dawson in the Marvel/Netflix series Daredevil and Jessica Jones  will be getting a larger role in the upcoming Luke Cage series. Mike Colter, who plays Cage, tells IGN, “She’s going to serve a very significant part of the Luke Cage story. Not overwhelmingly so, but you will definitely be satisfied with the amount of screen time you see. She’s definitely going to be someone that’s going to have a large storyline and help out a lot… Because she plays a nurse that basically seems to be in the right place at the right time, and she’s very good at helping out superheroes who are in need, and I think you will see some of that in Luke Cage. … Ultimately I think she’s going to be a very good companion for Luke. I think she’s someone that Luke needs in his life at this time.”
