Supernatural episode "Drag Me Away (From You)" attempts to give viewers the old 'the past comes back to haunt you' with a Winchester twist, but really the episode is a vague attempt to drive a rift between Sam and Dean and let us know one important fact: the beginning of the end IS coming.

Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

There are some days news of a film is just so good, we can’t wait to tell you about it. Like this particular indie film coming from director Barry Levinson– “Francis and The Godfather.” Chronicling the oftentimes chaotic making-of Francis Ford Coppola‘s masterpiece film “The Godfather,” this tale looks to shed more light on just how difficult the situation was.

Oscar Isaac has been tapped to play Coppola, which means he’ll be keeping the Duke Leto Atreides beard from “Dune,” right?

Jake Gyllenhaal will play former Paramount executive and producer Robert Evans, who passed away in 2019. Evans brought Coppola to “The Godfather,” and the pair collaborated not infrequently.

Levinson will direct from a Black List script by Andrew Farotte. Mike MarcusDoug Mankoff and Andrew Spaulding of Echo Lake Entertainment will produce, along with Kevin TurenJon Levin and Jason Sosnoff of Baltimore Pictures.

“Any movie that Barry Levinson makes about anything, will be interesting and worthwhile,” Coppola said about the news.

We can’t wait to see who else gets added to the cast to play such iconic personalities as Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, and Diane Keaton.

We’ll of course let you know what else we hear about this project.

To tide you over, pick up a copy of “The Godfather Notebook,” authored by Coppola himself about the film.
