Showtime has reversed its Season 2 pickup decision for On Becoming a God in Central Florida, starring Kirsten Dunst. Originally renewed more than a year ago, in September 2019, filming on the series’ second season was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, which halted all production in mid-March.

“Last year, Showtime renewed On Becoming A God In Central Florida but unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we were unable to move forward with production on the new season,” the network said in a statement to Deadline. “The pandemic has continued to challenge schedules across the board, and although we have made every effort to reunite the cast and crew for a second season, that has become untenable. It is with great regret that we are acknowledging On Becoming a God will not return.”

“We extend our deepest thanks to star and executive producer Kirsten Dunst, creators Robert Funke and Matt Lusky, showrunner Esta Spalding and their fellow executive producers George Clooney, Grant Heslov and Charlie McDowell, the terrific cast and crew, and our partners at Sony Pictures Television.”

The series, from Sony’s TriStar Television, has become the latest casualty of the coronavirus-related production shutdown. Citing COVID-related circumstances, Netflix decided not to proceed with the previously ordered fourth and final season of GLOW and second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This. TruTV did the same with the previously greenlighted third season of comedy I’m Sorry. Factoring into those decisions have been the uncertainty around production dates, balancing the availability of actors and significant added costs due to COVID.

Created and executive produced by Funke and Lutsky and starring Dunst, On Becoming A God is a darkly comedic story about the cult of free enterprise and one woman’s relentless pursuit of the American Dream. The series, originally ordered by YouTube, co-starred Théodore Pellerin, Mel Rodriguez, Beth Ditto and Ted Levine. The cast has been paid for Season 2.

On Becoming A God In Central Florida follows Krystal Stubbs (Dunst), a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM) — the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her to ruin in the first place, run by the powerful Obie Garbeau II (Levine). Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM and develops a tangled relationship with FAM’s most loyal and fanatical follower Cody (Pellerin), until her business begins to affect those closest to her, including Ernie (Rodriguez), her affable water park boss, and his FAM-skeptic wife Bets (Ditto).

Produced by Sony’s TriStar Television, the series was also executive produced by Smokehouse Pictures’ Clooney and Heslov, Spalding, who also served as showrunner, along with Dunst and McDowell.

Part 1 of the ‘Hank The Cowdog’ podcast is online now. Listen to it here.



John / September 2nd, 2020

Jeff Nichols is reuniting with a handful of his most acclaimed actors for a new family podcast based on John R. Erickson’s children’s book series ‘Hank the Cowdog.’ Tri-State Pictures, HTC Productions, and QCODE have partnered up for the Hank the Cowdog podcast, which Nichols wrote, directed, & executive produced. Nichols’ ‘Mud’ actor Matthew McConaughey is voicing Hank and also serving as executive producer. Erickson’s book series has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. Nichols’ podcast adaptation will run five episodes & launch later this month.

The official Hank the Cowdog podcast synopsis reads: Hank the Cowdog, the self-declared ‘Head of Ranch Security,’ finds himself smack dab in the middle of a host of tangled mysteries & capers that span the universe of the Texas Panhandle cattle ranch Hank calls home. Hank is joined on these tail-wagging, tongue-slobbering adventures by a motley assemblage of characters, not least of which is his less-than trusty sidekick, Drover, a small but uncourageous mutt voiced by Jesse Plemons. Listen in as Hank the Cowdog always claims to know the answer, is the last to realize he doesn’t, but is the first to run headlong into tales of courage, loyalty, & friendship.”

Joining McConaughey & Plemons in the voice cast are two of Nichols’ former collaborators: ‘Midnight Special’ supporting actress Kirsten Dunst & ‘Loving’ leading actor Joel Edgerton. Other cast members include Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Jordan, Scoot McNairy, & author John R. Erickson. Nichols & McConaughey are joined by executive producers Sarah Green & Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Tri-State Pictures, Mark Erickson of HTC Productions, & Rob Herting of QCODE.

Nichols’ four follow-up films were ‘Take Shelter,’ ‘Mud,’ ‘Midnight Special,’ and ‘Loving,’ the most recent of which earned actress Ruth Negga an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Nichols is currently attached to an ‘Alien Nation’ film adaptation.

The ‘Hank the Cowdog’ podcast officially launches September 14 through QCODE and will be available on Apple Podcasts & all major podcast platforms. Click here to listen to the trailer.

Kirsten celebrates her 38th birthday today. On behalf of Jess, Marc & everyone at the website I’d like to wish Kirsten a very happy birthday. Have a great day Kiki!

To mark the occasion I’ve added to the gallery 60 great pics of Kirsten at the Spider-Man US Premiere After Party, which was held at Wadsworth Theatre Parking Lot in Los Angeles on April 29th 2002. At the party Kirsten was presented with a Spider-Man themed birthday cake ahead of her 20th birthday the next day.

Jojo Rabbit star Thomasin McKenzie, Kodi Smit-McPhee, & Joker actress Frances Conroy are set to co-star in the Jane Campion-helmed Netflix/See-Saw Films drama, The Power Of The Dog. They join previously announced stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst & Jesse Plemons.

Campion adapted the pic based on the 1967 novel of the same name by Thomas Savage. The plot follows wealthy Montana brothers Phil (Cumberbatch) & George Burbank (Plemons), who are two sides of one coin. Phil is graceful, brilliant & cruel where George is stolid, fastidious & gentle. Together they are joint owners of the biggest ranch in the Montana valley. It is a place where men are still men, the rapidly modernizing 20th century is kept at bay & where the figure of Bronco Henry, the greatest cowboy Phil ever knew, is revered. When George secretly marries local widow Rose (Dunst), a shocked & angry Phil wages a sadistic, relentless war to destroy her entirely using her effeminate son Peter as a pawn.

Keith Carradine (The Old Man and the Gun, Madame Secretary), Peter Carroll (Crazy Rich Asians) & Adam Beach (Hostiles, Suicide Squad) have also been added to the cast.

See-Saw Films’ Emile Sherman & Iain Canning are producing the pic with Roger Frappier of Max Films, Campion (via Big Shell) & Brightstar’s Tanya Seghatchian. Exec producers are BBC Films’ Rose Garnett, See-Saw’s Simon Gillis & Brightstar’s John Woodward.

Netflix, which picked up the worldwide rights to the film at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, will release the film in 2021 in theaters & on its platform. Transmission Films will release the pic theatrically in Australia & New Zealand.

McKenzie, best known for her breakout role in the 2018 film Leave No Trace, is repped by UTA, Untitled Entertainment, Industry Entertainment, & Gail Cowan Management. Smit-McPhee, most recently seen in X-Men: Dark Phoenix & opposite Eddie Murphy in Dolemite Is My Name, is repped by ICM. Conroy is with Paradigm & Echo Lake Entertainment.

The nominations for the 2020 Golden Globe Awards & Critics’ Choice Awards were both announced today.

Her Golden Globe nomination is in the ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy’ category & her Critics’ Choice nomination is in the ‘Best Actress in a Comedy Series’ category.

The 77th Golden Globe Awards will be held on Sunday January 5th next year & the 25th Critics’ Choice Awards will be held a week later on January 12th.

Jesse Plemons is set to co-star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst in Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog.”

Plemons is replacing Paul Dano, who was forced to drop out of the movie due to scheduling conflicts with “The Batman,” for which Dano was recently tapped to play the Riddler. Sources say Netflix and Dano’s team tried to work it out but in the end, the scheduling issues were too difficult to overcome.

Netflix acquired the pic this summer from See-Saw Films’ in-house sales arm, Cross City Films. Variety first reported on the project in May and Cross City Films launched sales at the Cannes Film Festival.

Netflix will release the movie in 2021 on the streaming platform and in theaters. Transmission Films will be releasing it theatrically in Australia and New Zealand. The deal excludes United Kingdom TV rights, which are retained by BBC Films.

Campion directed the movie, adapted from the 1967 Thomas Savage novel of the same name. It follows two wealthy brothers who are polar opposites. Plemons portrays a man who is fastidious and gentle, while his brother, played by Cumberbatch, is brilliant and cruel. They are joint owners of the biggest ranch in the Montana valley. When Plemons’ character secretly marries a local widow (Dunst), Cumberbatch wages a sadistic, relentless war to destroy her by using her son.

See-Saw Films and Big Shell Films/Max Films Production are producing the movie in association with Brightstar and BBC Films. The project has been developed with BBC Films, which is also backing production. See-Saw Films’ Emile Sherman and Iain Canning are also producing alongside Max Films’ Roger Frappier, Big Shell’s Campion and Brightstar’s Tanya Seghatchian. BBC Films’ Rose Garnett, See-Saw’s Simon Gillis and Brightstar’s John Woodward are executive producing.

Plemons was most recently seen reprising his role of Todd in the Netflix film “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” as well as another Netflix feature, “The Irishman.” He’ll stay busy in 2020, starting with Scott Cooper’s horror movie “Antlers,” Disney’s “The Jungle Cruise” and Charlie Kaufman’s “I’m Thinking of Ending Things.” He is repped by TalentWorks.

In other news Kirsten’s fiancee Jesse Plemons gave this reply when asked if he’d like to work with Kirsten again – “I don’t think I can say anything yet, but we might be soon. It’s just a scheduling thing, but I’d love to. And the writers for ‘On Becoming a God in Central Florida’ keep trying to find some part for me to play. But yeah, she’s my favorite. She’s been doing incredible work for a long time, and I just love her in that show”.
