A Scripted Series Based on the Property Brothers Is in Development at Fox

Fox is developing a scripted comedy series based on the lives of Jonathan and Drew Scott, a.k.a. The Property Brothers. Look, there are worse ideas. The series will be called It Takes Two, the same title of the brothers’ memoir, and will follow “two entrepreneurial twin brothers who decide to join forces in the real estate business when they realize they are stronger together than apart.” I mean obviously. The Property Brothers have risen to household-fame status through their exceptionally popular series on HGTV, which has spawned several spinoffs like Brother vs. Brother and Property Brothers: At …

‘Hitman 2’ Will Let You Kill Sean Bean

Sean Bean is a very good sport about the fact that his characters usually die. It doesn’t really matter if the movie is a blockbuster or an indie—Sean Bean’s character usually gets the business. With that in mind, the cheeky Hitman video game series is having some fun with the actor’s reputation and putting him in their new game, Hitman 2, as an “Elusive Target”. For those that didn’t play 2016’s Hitman, Elusive Targets were just that: elusive. “If a player fails to assassinate an elusive target before the mission expires, or alert the …

It’s been a wild ride for Tom Holland since bursting onto the scene (and big screen) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. He’s gone on to play the part, exceptionally well if you ask me, in his own Sony-Marvel film Spider-Man: Homecoming as well as playing a significant role in one of the biggest movies in cinematic history, Avengers: Infinity War. Interestingly enough, we’ll get to see him return (presumably, assuming he hasn’t truly been “dusted”) in the Untitled Avengers Movie on May 3rd of 2019 before he’s reunited …
