Felicia Day, star of web videos The Guild and Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, and Dollhouse who also played “Vi” in the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will portray a werewolf-hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood in the new Syfy Saturday Original Movie, Red (not to be confused with the adaption of Warren Ellis’ comic book Red starring Bruce Willis or the film from a few years ago called Red starring Brian Cox or Warren Beatty’s Reds or the reimagining of Red Riding Hood in a gothic style heading to the big screen starring Amanda Seyfried).
Scheduled to premiere in 2011, Red is Syfy’s latest re-imagining of classic fairy tales, legends and pop culture characters. The new line of films launched with Beauty and the Beasts: A Dark Tale, which starred Estella Warren, on February 27.
Syfy, one of television’s most prolific producers of original movies, is also developing films around the stories of Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor and Hansel & Gretel, among other projects.
In the action-packed Red, Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him. Red also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen and he was amazing in Pontypool).
In addition to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Felicia is most widely known for her work in web video. She co-starred in Joss Whedon’s Internet musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, which was voted the Best Web TV of 2008 by Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly and People Magazine.
Currently she stars in the web series The Guild, which she created, writes and stars in. The Guild was the winner of the YouTube, Yahoo and SXSW Best Web Series Awards for 2008. The series has generated more than 50 million views web-wide. Day also has a hugely popular Twitter following, reaching more than 1.7 million fans.
Here endeth the press release. Day is cool so I imagine this will have some watchable moments and McHattie is always great to watch. We shall see what we shall see.
Any Felicia fans out there looking forward to this?

Dr. Horrible interrupts the Emmy Broadcast with a message for America.

“We’re in there plugging. The writers are trying to put something together,” Whedon told MTV News. “We haven’t even decided on a venue. We have a story and we’re working that. We’re just starting with that.”
While he couldn’t share any details about the aforementioned story for the “Dr. Horrible” sequel, how it will relate to the first miniseries or whether Nathan Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris will reprise their roles, Whedon indicated that the lack of information was more due to the early stage of development than anything else.
“Doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, [we're just] just figuring out the story,” he explained. “We’re really excited about what it is. More, I cannot say.”

It looks as if Dan Mazeau has been contracted to write a screenplay for The Flash and now there is a rumour going round that the fastest man alive has been cast and it is not Ryan Reynolds (his role as Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine may have killed his chances for this one)
ThinkMcFlyThink have more on this.
We’ve received word from a very-reliable source that actor Scott Porter (formerly of the critically-acclaimed television-series Friday Night Lights) is one of those actors.
If you’ll remember back in the Fall of 2007, Porter auditioned for director George Miller for his (now dead) Justice League: Mortal and was said to be a top candidate for Superman.
The word is the studio has been quietly keeping their eye on the actor, and been keen to include him in one of their DC properties since JLM fell through
I’ve never seen Friday Night Lights so I don’t know if this is a good or bad choice. Any of you watch the show? Will he be a good Flash?
However, the not always reliable WENN have the rumour that Neil Patrick Harris (Dr Horrible, How I Met Your Mother) could be the Flash and I could see him as Barry Allen (if that is the Flash they are going with).
Who would work best for you?

This is as mad as a box of jelly spanners. Joss Whedon’s (Buffy, Serenity, Firefly, The Doll’s House) latest is a 3 act Web musical following the exploits of ex Dougie Houser, Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) a supervillian trying to get into the Evil League, defeat his nemesis, the corporate tool, Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion) and win the heart of his love, Penny (Felicia Day). Rather funny, great production values and even the songs are pretty good.
