It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck…and holy shit, we’ve worked our way out of the 2015 recording archive and we careen into 2016. Amusingly, at the time of this recording, we still have no idea what a shitshow the year will be. Come join us and remember a kinder, more naive universe.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Meet Murray McKellen, Headmaster

    Sir Ian McKellen

    We’re back with all the pop culture news you need in bite-sized chunks so you can, you know, get on with having a life or something.

  • So Ian McKellen, who will soon be gracing the small screen in the remake of The Prisoner, is headed for television again. He is on board a mockumentary series called The Academy. Now here’s the bit that shows it’s too brilliant and cannot possibly ever hit the airwaves. Or, erm, cablewaves. Whatever the hell they’re called these days. The bit: “McKellen would play his fictional brother, Murray McKellen, who heads a run-down drama school, the Clapham Academy of Creative Arts, that is hoping to secure new funding through a docu on the school.” See what I mean? It’s just too good. Oh, and the other reason it might not happen is that Hobbit starts in March and if they don’t shoot it quick, they’ll miss Sir Ian’s window of opportunity. Oh, and “Murray” is indeed Sir Ian’s middle name. Nice. Source.
  • Uncle Warren‘s Black Summer has been optioned for a feature film, so the man himself has told us. Should be interesting in that the comic book’s plot was about a hero deciding that the President of the United States was a criminal and, because he was created to deal with criminals, um, dealt with the guy. Decisively, shall we say. This is Vigilante Entertainment’s first joint and they’ve brought on Knowing co-scribe Ryne Pearson to adapt it. The collected series is available from Amazon here.

    The Flintstones

    Some sites want to spend the whole time berating you with long drawn out stories about what’s going on. Screw that. We all have better things to do. Enjoy.

  • Marco Pennette, scribe of the light but satisfying Samantha Who? has got a couple of projects you might need to know about. One is an hour-long drama called The Romeos, telling the story of a four man band who become huge stars–and it tells it from the present day looking back to their time in the 60s when they first got started. Why do you care? Because composer Jeff Marks (Avenue Q) is on board. What else is he working on? The book for the Flintstones musical. What can we expect from it?

    Pennette’s script will rely on contemporary issues: Wilma, for example, mulls leaving Fred because he still acts too much like a caveman and hasn’t adapted to more modern ways. Barney and Betty tackle fertility issues before deciding to adopt. Musical will also tackle global warming — but in this case, as “The Flintstones” takes place before the ice age, the characters will confront “global cooling.”

    Wow. That is…exactly what the world wants from Flintstones: The Musical. No. Honestly. We’ve been crying out for somebody to take a fun animated series and turn it into some godawful non-funny “contemporary issues”-ridden piece of shit. Well done. Tonys all around. Source: Variety.
