Sequel Planned for ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’
The stars and producers of hot indie film ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ are set to return for a sequel to the 2002 movie. Gold Circle, HBO Films and Playtone Productions have already developing the sequel which sees the Portokalos family come together again ‘after a family secret is revealed and a bigger, fatter wedding brings the big fat Greek family back together again.’

Nia Vardalos and John Corbett, who played the romantic leads in the first film, will return. Vardalos also scripted the first ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’, and she will be writing the next instalment also. She says, “Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story. Of course a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true.” She is currently in development on ‘Leftovers’ for Paramount and is also on tour for her New York Times best-selling book ‘Instant Mon.’

Rita Wilson, and Playtone’s Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzmanare will produce while Paul Brooks, Scott Niemeyer, Norm Waitt, Steve Shareshian and Vardalos will executive produce. The original film was directed by Joel Zwick but no director is currently attached to the sequel.

Charlie Cox Cast as New Daredevil
Marvel has announced that Charlie Cox (‘Boardwalk Empire’, ‘Stardust’) will has been cast as Matt Murdock a.k.a. Daredevil in ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’, a new 13 episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015. Based on the comic books of the same name, ‘Daredevil’ follows a superhero who, blinded as a young boy and developing super strong senses, grows up to fight injustice by day as a lawyer and by night as alter-ego Daredevil in New York City.

The character made its last major appearance in the 2003 film starring Ben Affleck. ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ is one of four Marvel properties set to headline solo series set in New York, with the others being ‘Jessica Jones’, ‘Iron Fist’ and ‘Luke Cage.’ The characters from each show will then come together to form a single team in a chapter-closing miniseries called ‘The Defenders.’ Other evidence of Marvel’s investment in the small screen can be seen in its latest series ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ as well as the upcoming Captain America spin-off ‘Agent Carter’, starring Hayley Atwell.

Marvel’s original Netflix series is executive produced by series showrunner Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard. It is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
