Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik's New Sci-fi film starring Tom Hanks moves to Apple



HBO is moving really fast with the filming of Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. The show is expected to premiere in 2022. Meanwhile, the co-showrunner of the series Miguel Sapochnik’s Tom Hanks starring project has taken a major turn. While it was originally called Bios and set for theatrical release this August, it has now changed its title to Finch and has a new release date and outlet.

Originally, Bios was being released by Universal. Now Finch will be released on Apple TV+. The film is produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment which held an auction for the film over the weekend, according to Deadline. Apple won the auction and plans on releasing the film later this year so it can be in contention for awards.

Finch is about a robotic engineer (Hanks) who survives an apocalyptic event by staying in a bunker for a decade. In that time, he designs a robot (voiced by Caleb Landry Jones) who can take care of the man’s dog, Goodyear, after the man dies. So basically it’s about a man, a dog, and his robot, learning to co-exist and live in a post-apocalyptic world where they’re some of the last beings around.

Sapochnik has teamed up with Hanks and Spielberg’s company to capture the film. Are you excited about Finch? Talk to us in the comments below!

HBO has caused quite a stir in the past few days with news regarding Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon. The show officially started production in the month of April. Last week the television giant released the first official pictures of five main characters from the upcoming show. They included Daemon and Rhaenyra Targaryen (played by Matt Smith and Emma Darcy), Otto and Alicent Hightower (played by Rhys Ifans and Olivia Cooke) and the Sea Snake Corlys Velaryon (played by Steve Toussaint). Recently, one more important cast member has come under the attention of the Game of Thrones community. The Hobbit star Graham McTavish’s Wikipedia Filmography has been updated to include House of The Dragon.

McTavish himself revealed that he was in Cornwall about a week ago, which is where the production was filming. All the evidence points to him being a part of the Game of Thrones prequel.

The 60-year-old McTavish is one of the most versatile Hollywood actors, who has played a number of roles in various hits. He played the dwarf Dwalin in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies and Dougal MacKenzie on Outlander (he also played Dougal’s son William.) He voices Dracula in the Netflix show Castlevania, played the Saint of Killers for 42 episodes on Preacher, played King Atlan in Aquaman, and a whole lot more. Any set is lucky to have his experience. However, it is unknown what role he will be playing on House of The Dragon.

Photoshoots and campaigns are a big part of a celebrity’s income. However, sometimes they become victims of unfair treatment by publication houses, who use them for publicity. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) has filed a suit against Flaunt Magazine over inappropriate use of her ‘hot‘ photos.

According to The Blast, she participated in a photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine back in March of 2019. Clarke agreed on a one-time use in the June 2019 issue of the magazine and a single pre-approved promotional event in Shanghai. She claims she made it crystal clear to Flaunt that any other use of the photographs from the shoot was not permitted without her written approval.


Clarke claims Flaunt granted a Chinese cosmetics company, Perfect Diary, rights of her images that were not Flaunt’s to grant. They wrongfully allowed Perfect Diary to commercially exploit her photographs, voice, name and likeness to promote the brand’s products. Clarke had previously turned down a $700,000 offer to work with Perfect Diary. She alleges that numerous cosmetic companies who might have otherwise done business with her were admittedly misled to believe she was already working with one of their competitors.

She and her team repeatedly demanded that Flaunt cease their behaviour. However, they “brazenly refused to curtail or remedy all of its wrongful conduct.” So she filed the lawsuit seeking compensatory and statutory damages to the tune of $5 million.
