Dresden Gets SCI FI Pickup

SCI FI Channel has ordered 11 episodes of The Dresden Files, a supernatural detective series based on Jim Butcher's best-selling books, the network said. Nicolas Cage's Saturn Films and Lionsgate TV will produce the series, which kicks off with a two-hour pilot in January.

Paul Blackthorne (24) plays Harry Dresden, a Chicago-based private detective who has the powers of a wizard. The Dresden Files will shoot in Toronto.

David Carson directed the pilot, which was written by Hans Beimler (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Robert Wolfe (Andromeda); they will serve as executive producers of the series, along with Cage, Norm Golightly and Morgan Gendel.

Lucasfilm Animation Singapore is expanding the size and scope of its studio to include a newly formed Handheld Games Group to work with LucasArts in the United States and a Digital Artists Group to work alongside Industrial Light & Magic for the production of visual effects work, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

SuperheroHype! reported that Sony Pictures has sent a new backlit lenticular Spider-Man 3 poster to select theaters in North America, which features Spidey's chest as it changes from red to black, depending on the angle from which it's viewed.

The new trailer for Zoom, Tim Allen's upcoming family superhero comedy, has been linked through SCI FI Wire's Trailers page.
