News from the Back Seat Episode 001: Netflix, The Walking Dead and Spider-Man 4

Welcome to episode #1 of the first spin-off of the Back Seat Producers podcast.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Netflix has entered into an agreement with Warner Bros. to delay the release of New DVDs for rental in exchange for opening up the Warner’s back catalog for streaming.
  • Frank Darabont is going to write and direct the pilot for the  new AMC adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead.
  • Spider-man 4, Sam Raimi, and Tobey Maguire have all been cut.  A relaunch of the series is being planned with Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) in the director’s seat.  Rumor has it that it’s going to take Spidey back to being a teenager and might be based on the ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ comic books.
