Longtime Film and TV Editor Susan Kesler Dies at 60
Longtime TV and film editor Susan Kesler died Thursday, March 19, following a brief battle with ovarian peritoneal cancer. She was 60.

Kesler started out in the business as an apprentice editor on “The Love Boat” and “Dynasty,” two of the most popular TV shows in the late 1980s. Her career blossomed to include working as an assistant editor on such TV series as “The X-Files,” “Crossing Jordan,” “Heroes,” “Alphas,” “Falling Skies,” “Dominion,” “Defiance” and “Zoo,” as well as the feature films “Tremors” and “ ‘night, Mother.” Most recently, she served as assistant editor for the current NBC series “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.”

Emmy-winning editor Jon Koslowsky, Ace, who frequently worked with Kesler, said, “Sue was always there if you needed a friend.”

Kesler was an avid classic TV buff who, at various times, owned a 1965 Sunbeam Tiger, a replica of the one featured in “Get Smart” (1965-1970), and a “Rockford Files” (1974-1980) Pontiac Firebird replica.

Guns Akimbo Clip Has Daniel Radcliffe Outrunning a Rocket Launcher
Saban Films recently released a sneak peek clip of the new movie Guns Akimbo, which is scheduled for a release in select theaters at the end of this month. From Deathgasm director Jason Lei Howden, the new action-comedy movie stars Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe in what appears to be his most bizarre movie role yet, and this is certainly not like how we've ever seen him before. You can see what I mean by watching the sneak peek video below.

In addition to Daniel Radcliffe, Guns Akimbo also stars Samara Weaving (Ready or Not), Natasha Liu Bordizzo (The Society), Ned Dennehy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Grant Bowler (Defiance), and Rhys Darby (Jumanji: The Next Level). The movie follows Radcliffe as Miles, a young man caught in a gang's deadly game where he's forced to fight to the death as part of an online show with millions of people watching across the world.

‘Krypton’ Canceled After Two Seasons, Spinoff ‘Lobo’ Not Moving Forward On Syfy

  • Deadline
There will be no more Krypton on Syfy. The network has opted not to renew the Superman origin drama series, and the recent Season 2 finale August 14 was a series finale on the NBCUniversal cable network. With the mothership series getting canceled, Syfy also won’t be proceeding with the previously announced Lobo spinoff, which had been in development.

I hear Krypton producer Warner Horizon Scripted Television is in conversations with other outlets, exploring ways to continue the franchise based on DC characters elsewhere. Siblings DC Universe and the upcoming HBO Max streaming platform are considered the most logical options as DC content has been a focus for both. Past seasons of Krypton already run on DC Universe. Season 1 is currently streaming on DC Universe, with Season 2 coming in 2020.

Largely fueled by its Superman pedigree, Krypton was a breakout for Syfy when it launched its first season in March 2018. It scored
