Just a reminder that you can catch the Mindy season 5 opener, “Decision,” on Hulu today.
And from the looks of it, Garret will be making an appearance in The Guest Book, Greg Garcia’s new show that premieres on TBS in January. Here is a quick description:
The Guest Book is based on fictitious stories Garcia had been writing in the guest books of various rental cabins in an effort to freak out the next renters. Garcia will write all 10 episodes and will executive produce the TV series, which centers on a small-town vacation home and its visitors. The house and cast of characters living in this mountain town remain the same, with each episode featuring a different set of guests renting the house. — Deadline
Garret has been cast as the lead in Monsters of God, a new pilot for TNT produced by Plan B Entertainment. It is a post-Civil War drama written by Rod Lurie (The Contender, Resurrecting the Champ, Commander in Chief), who will also direct it. A few fun details from Deadline:
In Monsters of God, written and to be directed by Lurie, savagery and violence are the cornerstones of Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster (Dillahunt)’s holy war against the Comanche in post-Civil War Texas. Despite the peaceful co-existence between the Comanche and local townspeople, Lancaster sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe, bringing chaos to the town of Slater.
Vicious, relentless, and a tower of a man, Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster is the newly in-charge leader at Fort Thayer, a military base in Texas that exists to make peace with the nearby Comanche tribe. A fighter for the North in the Civil War, Lancaster’s morals stopped there; he now focuses on the total extermination of the Comanche, a goal in contrast to his orders. — Deadline
Monsters of God is also the silver lining to Hand of God not getting picked up for a third season. The second and last season of that show won’t be released until 2017.
In the meantime, here is a brief synopsis for Wheelman, the Netflix movie Garret is currently filming with Frank Grillo:
Grillo plays a getaway driver thrust into a high stakes race for survival after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong. With a car full of money and his family on the line, the clock is ticking to figure out who double-crossed him, and the only person he can trust is his 14-year-old daughter. — Variety
Here is a pic Grillo posted on Instagram last week:
Wheelman was written by Jeremy Rush, who is also directing.
Elsewhere, The New York Times is reporting November 11 as the release date for Come and Find Me, so we should probably start seeing and hearing more on that front soon.
COME AND FIND ME Aaron Paul (has it really been three years since “Breaking Bad” ended?) stars as a man whose wife disappears. It turns out she was living a double life, so finding her isn’t simple (or necessarily advisable). With Annabelle Wallis and Garret Dillahunt. Zack Whedon wrote and directed.
And The Mindy Project is coming back with its fifth season next week. The first of 16 episodes will be released on Hulu on Tuesday, Oct. 4. Here is a new trailer:
Principal photography is underway for Courtney Hoffman’s feminist western short The Good Time Girls from Haven Entertainment. Hoffman writes, Quentin Tarantino executive produces and Laura Dern stars in this 1880s tale about three female vigilantes who seek revenge against the outlaws who ruined their lives. Alia Shawkat, Annalise Baso, Q’orianka Kilcher, Garret Dillahunt, and Dana Gourier also star. There are plans to ultimately turn this short into a feature or miniseries. — Deadline
