Time.com – Flaked will be the third Netflix comedy starring Arnett
After starring in Netflix’s revival of Arrested Development and the original animated series Bojack Horseman, Will Arnett is returning to the streaming service for his next comedy, Flaked. The show follows a self-described “guru” named Chip (Arnett) who falls in love with his best friend’s crush.
Arnett will also pen the comedy with co-creator Mark Chapell. Netflix ordered eight episodes of the comedy, which will begin streaming exclusively on the service in 2016. “We’re very excited to partner with Netflix—the home of original, original content—and the network I knew would be the ideal home for this passion project,” the actor said in a statement.
Arnett’s CBS show, The Millers, which also starred Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges, was canceled this year in its sophomore season.
Slashfilm.com — The list of things wrong with the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is pretty long. Way down on the list is that the film’s villains really weren’t that interesting or formidable. Well it seems new director Dave Green and screenwriters Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are looking to at least solve that in the June 2016 sequel. Producer Andrew Form recently confirmed that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will feature popular villains Bebop and Rocksteady. Read more about Ninja Turtles 2 Bebop and Rocksteady.
The Ninja Turtles 2 Bebop and Rocksteady news broke on Omelete (via Collider). There, Form confirmed that not only are Bebop and Rocksteady in the movie, they’re “trying to fit in” Casey Jones as well. Though, to be fair, we already had an idea about that.
Besides the Turtles, Will Arnett’s character will be back along with Megan Fox’s April O’Neil. That’s on the good side. Shredder will once again return as the villain and the fact Bebop and Rocksteady will appear gives you a better idea of what to expect in the movie. If part one was an origin story, you’d think Part 2 is going to be more about the Turtles coming into their own and Shredder doing anything to stop them. Including, mutating his own soldiers, hence Bebop and Rocksteady.
The dimwitted warthog and rhino were considered for the first film – there was even concept art – but ultimately cut, probably because it just didn’t fit in that first story. Them being in this movie does pique my interest a bit though. Especially if they cast the roles well. Each of these characters, who would presumably be created in mo-cap, would be wonderful, wacky exercises for some actor out there. Hopefully they get some really good people.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 opens on June 3, 2016. The writers of the original, Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, are back this time. They’re also producing along with the Platinum Dunes crew, who hired Earth to Echo director Dave Green to helm.
