POWERS

In this G4 interview (via MTV News), Brian Michael Bendis offers various updates on "Torso," "Powers," and the Marvel movies. "Powers" offers the most concrete news. The comic is set to become a television series at FX. Bendis says "Kevin Falls is our showrunner." Falls produced "Sports Night" and "The West Wing." The pilot will also be directed by Michael Dinner, who shot the pilots for the recent "Bionic Woman" and "Sons of Anarchy" pilots.

THE LIVING AND THE DEAD

According to Comics2Film at Mania.com, "Session 9" director Brad Anderson is set to direct a feature based on the comic by Robert Tinnell and Todd Livngston.

SLOW NEWS DAY BLUES

Does a slow news day get me down? Sometimes. I like the frantic pace of the news cycle, but every so often, a breather is nice as well. However, don't let the brake last too long. If any of you discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of auto repair bills.
