One Mandalorian Spinoff May No Longer Be Happening At Disney+, But There's Still Some Good News

  One Mandalorian Spinoff May No Longer Be Happening At Disney+, But There's Still Some Good News It would seem that one of The Mandalorian's spinoffs has stalled, but there may be a silver lining.Rangers of the New Republic was originally announced during the company’s presentation at Disney Investor Day in late 2020. Though specific plot details were not explicitly confirmed, it was widely reported that the show would thrust Gina Carano’s Cara Dune into the lead role. Plans for the project likely changed, however, after Carano was dismissed from the studio for a social media post that was deemed “abhorrent and unacceptable.” By May 2021, reports suggested that the project was no longer in active development.

Few TV casting decisions will ever make as much sense as Sam Elliott being added into the Yellowstone universe for Paramount+’s prequel drama 1883, with real-life couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill portraying the ranch-founding generation of the Dutton family. The show, which takes place in and around the titular year, is a hard-nosed look at how one person’s idea of the American Dream can be a total nightmare for everyone in his or her path. And while the streaming spinoff wouldn’t exist without Kevin Costner’s Yellowstone as a flashback-introducing foundation, Sam Elliott doesn’t think 1883 necessarily needs that recognition to stand on its own two successful feet. With boots on those feet, a’course.

Ahead of 1883’s big debut spread across both Paramount+ and Paramount Network, Sam Elliott spoke with CinemaBlend and other press about bringing his character Shea Brennan into existence, and what fans can expect to see from the massive cross-country journey he’s leading. When I asked him about being part of a dream team working with Taylor Sheridan, and how the experience has been for the legendary actor, Elliott said:

Sam Elliott definitely wasn’t dropping any disparaging comments about Yellowstone in and of itself, to be sure. Rather, the mustachioed actor was merely speaking to the idea that 1883 can be fully enjoyed as its own thing, completely independent of the mothership series, and that the connective narrative tissue isn’t necessary for this harrowing tale to be effective for audiences. The new series features a gripping story, attention-grabbing characters, gorgeous locations, and wild-west action. It’s essentially all the things people like about Yellowstone, but change a few names and might as well be a completely different franchise.

The Batman's Penguin Spinoff On HBO Max Just Got Some Great News

  The Batman's Penguin Spinoff On HBO Max Just Got Some Great News The Batman's Penguin-led spinoff series, which will debut on HBO Max, is moving in the right direction.Though his status was originally uncertain, it’s now been reported that Colin Farrell will reprise his role as Penguin in the upcoming show. According to Variety, Farrell will also serve as an executive producer on the project. So far plot details are mostly being kept under wraps, but the show will apparently focus on the lead character’s rise to the top of Gotham City’s criminal underworld. Behind the camera, Lauren LeFranc will pen the show, while Matt Reeves and Dylan Clark will serve as executive producers.

Of course, that would require someone else being responsible for 1883’s creation beyond Taylor Sheridan, and that just doesn’t seem possible. (Not only because Elliott has that opinion, but it certainly adds credence to the idea.) After all, who else but Sheridan would appear on Yellowstone referencing Sam Elliott’s Road House work in the same year when the latter actor would play a character partially responsible for the Yellowstone ranch being founded in Montana? Who else will have a TV show that features a scene with Tim McGraw and Tom Hanks? Nobody, probably.

Even beyond all of his compliments about Sheridan’s creativity and impact as the spearheader of 1883, Sam Elliott had more kind things to say about the showrunner, even about his work off the set. In his words:

After watching a few episodes of 1883, one can understand what Taylor Sheridan meant, as Elliott’s character Brennan is haunted by family tragedies and is subject to fits of rage regarding frontier justice. Beyond the emotional turmoil, the role is also quite physically demanding for the 77-year-old actor, who still looks more fit, skilled, and comfortable riding horses than I ever would. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if there’s a third brutal element coming for Sam Elliott, like his character has a flashback where he has to pour a bunch of ants into his eyeballs or something. Would that be enough to make someone hate Sheridan?

1883 streams new episodes on Paramount+ every Sunday, with Episode 2 set to air on linear TV on December 26, following a new episode of Yellowstone, but maybe just pretend that connection doesn’t even exist while watching.

Yellowstone's Cole Hauser And Kelly Reilly Share Thankful Messages To Get Fans Pumped For Season 5 .
With Yellowstone Season 4 now in the history books, stars Cole Hauser and Kelly Reilly are setting the mood for Season 5.2022 kicked off in one of the best and worst ways possible, as Yellowstone's super-sized Season 4 finale wrapped up its roller coaster of a season with some big moments and one fairly major death. But I think many hardcore fans would agree that one of the episode’s most pleasurable highlights was the scene in which Kelly Reilly’s Beth Dutton and Cole Hauser’s Rip Wheeler finally celebrated an impromptu wedding ceremony, complete with a kidnapped priest who could not have been more good-natured and agreeable.
