Christopher Heyerdahl as the Chapman’s creepy neighbour Edmund in Episode 2.7 of PROJECT BLUE BOOK
Christopher Heyerdahl (Sam) will be Hiram Epps in seven episodes of the Amazon horror series THEM:COVENANT. Set in 1953, the show follows a couple (Lucky and Henry Emory, played by Deborah Ayorinde and Ashley Thomas) who decide to move their family from North Carolina to an all-white neighbourhood in Los Angeles. Once they arrive, their new home quickly becomes a spot overrun with evil forces both mundane and supernatural. Allison Pill (STAR TREK: PICARD) and Michael J Harney (PROJECT BLUE BOOK) are also in the cast. The show had its first table read last October, but there is no word yet on a release date.
Matreya Scarrwener (Brittney in “No ‘I’ in Team“) stars as Stacey, a troubled teenage girl who downloads an app called ‘Shall We Play?’ (also the name of the film) which enables her to have conversations with the dead (or maybe she only thinks it does). In the beginning, Stacey uses it to converse with dead relatives for emotional support, but the app soon takes over her life completely. SHALL WE PLAY? is director Ann Forry‘s first feature. The film’s website says that it is “Coming Soon”, but, though IMDB suggests it will be released later this month, no specific date has been announced. A trailer is available on YouTube.

Aleks Paunovic (Julius) will be Trevor and Rukiya Bernard (Doc) will be Taylor in the psychological thriller “92”. Set in Japan, the U.S., UK, France, Sweden, Serbia and the United Arab Emirates, the film tells the story of five characters who have joined forces in an effort to shut down a dead tech mogul’s most secret invention, a machine intended to solve all of mankind’s problems, but which could end all life on earth. The thriller was shot in eight different countries with director Rick Dugdale running the show through a virtual command centre. “I’m directing over Zoom,” Dugdale told Dana Gee of the Vancouver Sun. “It feels like we are standing on a film set. We have a cinematographer, we have a production designer, we have the actors and we have the writer and the editor on set as well.” The script by Cam Cannon relies heavily on virtual footage. “92” is expected to be released in the US sometime in July.

Jennifer Cheon Garcia (Ivory) will be Leane Sharif in THE WHEEL OF TIME, a drama based on the series of novels by Robert Jordan (and continued by Brandon Sanderson after Jordan’s death). The novels are set in a future society resembling that of medieval Europe three thousand years after an age of technological advancement came to a cataclysmic end. The first season will contain elements from the first three novels (there are fourteen). Moiraine Damodred (Rosamund Pike) goes in search of the Dragon Reborn (the chosen one destined to save humanity).
In the books, Cheon’s character, like Damodred, is part of Aes Sedai, an all-female organization of magicians, and is bound by the Three Oaths (to never lie, to make no lethal weapon, and to only use the ‘One Power’ as a weapon under extraordinary circumstances). Sharif was born in Arad Doman, and, according to The Wheel of Time Wiki: “Domani women wear diaphanous, form-fitting clothing considered scandalous in most countries, and have raised the practice of seduction to an art…Most Domani merchants are women, and few men can best them in a bargaining session.”THE WHEEL OF TIME began filming in The Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia last September, and is expected to be on Amazon Prime Video sometime in 2021.
