The 1990s cult TV show “Twin Peaks” is making a comeback — not only onscreen, but also in the form of a paperback.
According to Huffington Post, the hit television series will be rebooted on Showtime in 2016, and along with that will come a new book, updating fans on the lives of the characters and “unresolved plot holes.”
The book is due to be released by Flatiron Books next year and will include details about what’s happened to the characters in the last 25 years between the original and new TV series. It’s also expected to have more details on the mystery “at the heart” of the series.
This is not the first time the show has released accompanying books, and it seems to have worked for them in the past. After all, the close release of the book and the show is a good marketing plan.
Spoiler alert: Walter White is not dead. Actor Bryan Cranston, of Breaking Bad fame, is planning to put his creative energy into another medium: writing.
According to The New York Times, he’s penning a memoir, which will cover the six years he spent shooting the hit show Breaking Bad. In a statement, Cranston said he plans to “tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting ‘Breaking Bad’.”
Scriber, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, is publishing the book. It’s due to come out in Fall 2015.
In movies, she’s almost always played the “best friend” (27 Dresses, The Wedding Planner). But finally, comedic actress Judy Greer is a leading lady — in nonfiction writing.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Judy Greer, who currently voices Cheryl on FX’s Archer, recently got a deal to publish her first book. It will be a collection of essays about a number of topics, ranging from her childhood in the Midwest to her career in film and TV.
Called I Don’t Know What You Know Me From, the book is tentatively set to come out sometime next year and left Greer with an advance of almost $1 million.
It’s nice to see her finally in the limelight; though I do wonder how many people will actually read a book about a woman that doesn’t have the largest following.
Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and The Dawn of the Modern Woman was on the New York Times bestseller list during the summer of 2010, and with good reason.
Though author Sam Wasson did not intend for his biographical book becoming a bestseller, it had every reason to. The book details the making of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which won two Oscars and received three other nominations in 1962. It delves into the difficulties of turning Truman Capote’s novel into a Hollywood movie and the massive impact that Audrey Hepburn had on American fashion and feminism after it was released.
You can still get a physical copy of the book for $10, but if you have an e-reader, getting the eBook for just $2.99 is a no-brainer. I bought it and can’t wait to start reading!
