After successfully spinning off its Chicago franchise, NBC is looking to do the same with The Blacklist, its drama from Sony TV and Davis Entertainment. The network is pursuing a potential offshoot series toplined by X-Men star Famke Janssen. Like with the Chicago series, the network is taking a planted spinoff approach, with Episode 322 of The Blacklist, which airs May 12, serving as a pilot for the potential new series. It is written by The Blacklist creator/executive producer Jon Bokenkamp and exec producer/showrunner John Eisendrath and will be directed by Michael Dinner (Justified, Masters of Sex). Janssen will be introduced in the May 5 episode before the planted spinoff. She will play Susan “Scottie” Halsted; it will be the female lead if NBC proceeds with the series, a decision that likely will be made in the next month and a half. Read More: // here

In 1988 director Rowdy Herrington made his debut with Jack’s Back, a sleek thriller starring James Spader in dual roles. 1988 was the 100th anniversary of the Jack the Ripper slayings and Herrington was able to use those killings and turn them into a clever modern day mystery. Well, modern for the 80’s at least. Spader stars as twin brothers John and Rick Wesford. John is a doctor working in a clinic in the neighborhood he grew up in. It’s a poor neighborhood were people struggle to get by. John wants to give back to the community and is pushing for affordable healthcare. Near the clinic someone is committing murders that closely resemble the murders committed by Jack the Ripper one hundred years earlier in London. When John turns up dead everything points to him being the prime suspect and the police think he committed suicide. That’s when John’s brother Rick comes into the scene. Read More: // here

Back before writer/director Rowdy Herrington graced cinemas with the throat-ripping Swayze classic Road House (1989), and before actor James Spader was noted for always being the creepiest guy in a film – regardless of whether or not his role was intended to be creepy – the two teamed up for a somewhat novel slasher film produced to capitalize on the 100-year anniversary of Jack the Ripper’s notorious murders. Jack’s Back (1988) posits that a copycat killer has begun to replicate The Ripper’s sadistic Whitechapel murders on the exact dates on which they occurred, a full century later. Based on Scream Factory’s cover art (which uses the theatrical key art) and the casting of Spader, first-time viewers might think Spader is the perpetrator of the crimes therein. Spoiler alert: he’s not. Read More: // here
