AHS Season 6 Theme Revealed?

The premiere date of AHS Season 6 has been unveiled – September 14 – and several teasers has been surfacing, dropping clues on what would be the theme of next season.

Yesterday, TMZ got its hands on the first images from the set of season six, in Santa Clarita, California. One of the creepy clues is a photo of a tree with the word “CROATOAN” carved into the bark. The detail is a dead giveaway that the show will have something to do with the mystery of Roanoke, the North Carolina colony where, in 1590, 117 people disappeared with no explanation. The word “CROATOAN” is the name of a North Carolinian Indian tribe and was carved into a tree in Roanoke, the only clue left behind after the disappearance.

And to make more playful, let’s remember that all AHS seasons are linked at some sort of way and back on Season 1, Sarah Paulson’s psychic character, Billie Dean, already mentioned it, as pointed by Vanity Fair.

It’s difficult to banish a spirit, but not impossible. The most successful attempt I know of happened when America was known as the new world.

In 1590, on the coast of what we now know as North Carolina, the entire colony of Roanoke—all 117 men, women, and children—died inexplicably. It became known as the ghost colony because the spirits remained. They haunted the native tribes living in the surrounding areas. Killing indiscriminately. The elder knew he had to act. He cast a banishment curse. First he collected the personal belongings of all the dead colonists. Then they burned them. The ghosts appeared, summoned by their talismans. But before the spirits could cause them any more harm, the elder completed the curse that would banish the ghosts forever. By uttering a single word. The same word found carved on a post at the abandoned colony. “Croatoan.”

Exciting! Check the Vanity Fair article for more clues, and don’t forget, American Horror Story Season 6 premieres September 14 on FX.

‘The Last Tycoon’ Drama Picked Up To Series By Amazon

AmazonVideo_2016-May-26

Via Deadline – With a well-known title and formidable lead cast, Amazon’s The Last Tycoon pilot has been a strong contender for a series pickup. Now the project, toplined by Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer and Rosemarie DeWitt, has been ordered to series by the streaming service, I have learned. It comes from Sony TV’s TriStar Television. I hear Amazon’s other drama pilot from the batch, The Interestings, is not going forward.

Written and directed by Billy Ray based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s final unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon was inspired by the life of film mogul Irving Thalberg, on whom the book’s protagonist Monroe Stahr was based. The project centers on Stahr (Bomer), Hollywood’s first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930s as he climbs to the height of power pitting him against his mentor and current head of the studio, the brawny, imposing, charming and vain Pat Brady (Grammer), a character based on Louis B. Mayer. Having come from the streets, Brady has no intention of returning to his misfortune, and is determined to make sure his studio is successful, no matter what personal morals he compromises. Dewitt plays Pat Brady’s wife, Rose Brady, who may be involved with Stahr.

Why The Last Tycoon Is the Best Vision of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Unfinished Work

matt-bomer-the-last-tycoonb

Esquire has published a great interview with Matt, to promote The Last Tycoon. They’re also – in a huge agreement with the fanbase – talking about how Bomer is made for this role – “Though he’s still getting caught up on his old Hollywood history, Bomer is as debonair and tortured as the role requires“. Yeah, we all agree!

Check some excerpts of the great interview below:

So how did you get involved with The Last Tycoon, and what drew you to it?
Billy called me out of the blue in December. He brought the project up to me, and his vision for it. Like all of us, I was very familiar with Fitzgerald’s work, but it had been a while since I had read The Last Tycoon or seen the Kazan film. It sounded like the world he wanted to create, while a period piece, was very topical and interesting. I read the script, I thought it was fantastic, we sat down together, and that was that.

Now you’ve played your fair share of rogues. You got famous playing a con man. Is it more fun to be a bit evil, or more pure good?
You know, I try not to think of it as black and white, because all human beings have a shadow. We all have a great deal of admirable qualities, and we all have some that could probably be improved upon. My favorite characters, when I read them, are people with some aspects of both—that feels more human and [like] the people I’ve encountered and my own experiences of life. I like it when they have a little bit of each.

Now you filmed the pilot, and Amazon is waiting around to see what the reaction is, and then it will decide whether to order it to series or not, right?
Yeah. That’s the plan.

How are you feeling? Is this a nerve-wracking way to work? Because all you can do is get the word out and hope people see it and like it.
You know, I try not to worry about it too much. Thankfully, I have a very full life. I’m married with kids, so I have a lot of things to focus on, other projects either in post-production or pre-production, so you just do the best you can. I love that Amazon has this diplomatic process where people’s voices can be heard, and they can weigh in. I think it’s a great way to use the interconnectedness we have with the Internet. At the same time, pilots are essentially rough drafts. It’s a bit like bringing all your friends into an ultrasound and saying, “Isn’t my baby beautiful?” You can make out the rough outlines and the edges and get a good sense of what the baby is going to look like, but you won’t know until you get a chance to flesh it out. I just hope people will visit the world and enjoy what they see. For me personally, I look at it and go, “Oh that’s great, that’s cool, that did not work, I can work on that,” and you soldier forward should you be given the opportunity.

Are you resisting the urge to check in with your agent or whomever every day and go, “Okay, what are the numbers now? How about now?”
You know, I think for the first couple of days I did, and then I realized that’s just not a healthy endeavor. There’s an old saying: “There’s no sure formula for success, but the only certain formula for failure is to try to please everybody.” I think if you over-concern yourself with what people’s opinions are, I don’t think it’s really healthy for anybody. And certainly as an artist, you don’t want those voices in your head when you’re trying to make a choice for a character. You want to be operating from where you are in that space with the work you’ve done.

I don’t know if this is true or not, but there’s a long-running rumor that if you work with George Clooney and get to know him even a little, he will send you a box of what he considers the 100 best movies of all time, and he expects you to watch them all.
I can imagine no more enjoyable assignment from a director. I would love that. As a matter of fact, if George Clooney ever reads this, I want those 100 movies regardless of whether or not we work together.
