Star Trek star Zachary Quinto will be starring in and executive producing a new hour-long drama called Biopunk, which is based on Wired magazine’s senior business/technology writer Marcus Wohlsen’s book Biopunk: DIY Scientists Hack the Software of Life by Wired. Biopunk chronicles the underground world of bio-hackers — DIY garage scientists seeking to do for biotech what Steve Jobs did for personal computing.


THE WARRIORS TO COME OUT AND PLAY ONCE AGAIN

Fans awaiting confirmation of a TV show based on the cult classic film The Warriors received it this week. Rumors of a new adaptation had been circulating over the years, but it has finally been announced that Joe and Anthony Russo, co-director brothers who have recently been knee-deep in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will helm the pilot. It will be produced by Paramount Television Productions — along with the Russos — and will air on Hulu. The show is said to maintain the atmosphere of the film while incorporating its own gritty, sexy style. The famous invitation to rumble, “Warriors, come out to play,” can almost be heard again already.


WINTER IS DELAYED

Winter isn’t coming just yet. D.B. Weiss and David Benioff stated in an interview with the UFC Unfiltered podcast, that season seven of Game of Thrones will be premiering later in 2017 to allow more time to film during colder weather. Weiss stated, “Winter is here, and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes anymore. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim, grey weather — even in the sunnier places that we shoot.” No specific premiere date was given in the interview, and HBO had no comment on Weiss’ remarks.
