Three More Join 'Sin City,' 'Zombieland' TV Series Update & J.J. Abrams Eyes Lance Armstrong Movie

Sin City 2 cast

Robert Rodriguez is known for his eclectic casts and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is gradually assembling its cast of characters. The Playlist is reporting that three more actors have joined the cast, although exactly who they're playing has not been revealed.

Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jeremy Piven are the latest additions to Rodriguez's sequel which is currently in production and slated for an October 4 release.

Back before Zombieland became a cult hit on the big screen, it was originally being developed as a television series. Then, after it was reworked into the feature film we all know, word broke that the film would continue on as a television series.

Ruben Fleischer recently said during a press junket for Gangster Squad that a sequel to the film was probably not going to happen.

"I hate to do it, but I can say that there's no immediate plans to make the movie. There's no script, really, so the likelihood of it happening is slim. But I would not wanna put a nail in that coffin."

Looks like the movie will have to live on in the small screen.

io9 scooped some casting sheets for a proposed CBS series, revealing some of the characters that would appear on the show. Tallahassee and Columbus are mentioned as well as new characters Fred and Ainsely, office workers who are complaining about their iPhones and Starbucks orders during the start of the zombie apocalypse.

Would you like to see the movie continue on as a TV series or would you prefer a sequel to the original film?

J.J. Abrams and his production company Bad Robot seem to be taking the old saying, "Strike while the iron is hot," to heart. Abrams, in conjunction with Paramount Pictures, have picked up the movie rights for an upcoming book that chronicles Lance Armstrong's doping scandal.

The book, Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong, will serve as the basis of the film. This isn't the first Armstong-themed movie adaptation that was in the works. Hunger Games director Gary Ross was adapting a screenplay from Armstrong's first book, It's Not About the Bike. Due to Armstrong's recent doping admission, it's not clear whether that project will move forward.
