Quick News: Portable, King, Women, Nintendo


The Portable Door
MGM+ has set an April premiere date for Jeffrey Walker’s original young-adult fantasy-adventure comedy feature “The Portable Door” starring Sam Neill, Christoph Waltz, Patrick Gibson, Sophie Wilde, Miranda Otto, Chris Pang, Jessica De Gouw and Rachel House. Jim Henson Company, Story Bridge Films, and Sky produce.

Adapted by Leon Ford from Tom Holt’s popular seven-book fantasy series, the story follows two put-upon interns working at the mysterious London firm J.W. Wells & Co. which is bringing a modern corporate strategy to ancient magical practices – and has a sinister agenda in mind. Waltz plays the CEO with Neill the middle manager. [Source: Deadline]

The Last King
Live-action “Aladdin” star Mena Massoud has revealed the first slate of projects out of his company Press Play Productions. Arguably the most notable is the short film “The Last King,” the first-ever Stephen King work to be adapted entirely into a foreign language.

The story is set in Iran and reflects the country’s ongoing ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’ revolution. Maz Jobrani and Sheila Ommi star with a festival run planned this year. [Source: Variety]

Three Women
Starz has rescued the Shailene Woodley-fronted drama “Three Women” which Showtime recently dropped though it had completed filming. DeWanda Wise, Betty Gilpin and Blair Underwood also star.

The show was shopped to multiple outlets, including HBO and Amazon, before landing at Starz which also recently acquired the second season of “Minx” after HBO Max reversed plans for it. [Source: THR

Nintendo has announced that its first Direct since September last year is set to stream tomorrow, February 8th at 2pm US-PT, 5pm US-ET and 9am Aus-EST.

The show will be around 40 minutes and will ‘mostly’ cover games released in the first half of 2023 with hopes being a big focus on the highly anticipated “The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom”. [Source: Twitter]
