Louise Mitchell to die in terrifying EastEnders twist?

Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper) could be set to die in a horrific EastEnders twist this spring as she is caught up in her dad Phil’s (Steve McFadden) messy criminal world – and could become a revenge attack victim.

As Phil returns from Spain, it’slear that he is in more financial trouble than ever with some ery dangerous people after his blood. As he struggles to keep his head above water, the pressure mounts and an associate called Danny Hardcastle (Paul Usher) shows up.

He firstly thanks a nervous Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) for his work over in Spain but quickly and, with a sinister edge, reminds Phil that he still owes money.

With Phil’s time clearly running out, soon Louise becomes a bargaining target – if Phil doesn’t pay up, he will lose his daughter. Phil tasks Keanu with protecting an oblivious Louise at any costs – but things will spin out of control in a big way, leading to a potentially deadly showdown with ramifications that Phil will never forget.

Ben (Max Bowden) will be back on the scene and soon be involved with his dad’s situation but is it too late for Louise as she is bundled into the back of the car as Keanu looks on in shock?

A recent trailer appeared to show Phil in a warehouse yard screaming Louise’s name – so will this prove to be the end of her? Or can her life be saved?

It’s not the only major drama unfolding in Walford in coming weeks as Jean Slater’s (Gillian Wright) cancer fight leads to the return of her troubled son Sean (Rob Kazinsky) while brave Ruby Allen (Louisa Lytton) bravely faces rapists Matt and Ross in court – but will she get the justice she deserves?

Louise’s torment will play out into the spring, along with the other explosive twists coming Albert Square’s way.

Podcasts: ‘to Live and Die in La’ Takes a Deep Dive into an Active Investigation

To
Live and Die in LA
was announced in February 2019. The first episode,
released on February 28, 2019, opens with a recording of an emotional woman
accusing someone of beating her. From there the host, Neil Strauss, begins to
tell the story of Adea Shabani. The podcast
was in production within weeks of Shabani’s disappearance, and what the team
manages to find out leads to a tangled and disturbing double life, a web of
lies and all eyes focused on a 34-year-old aspiring actor.

What is To Live and
Die in LA
all about?

To Live and Die in LA
is all about the disappearance and death of Adea Shabani, a 25-year-old
aspiring actress from Macedonia. To unravel the twisted web of crucial players,
Neil Strauss, an author, is taking his first shot at narrative podcasting.
While the podcast follows a familiar format, broken up into 12 episodes, this
is the first time a true crime podcast is actively involved in a case that is
so recent.

Looking at this photo chokes me up. I'm standing in the bedroom of Adea Shabani, a 25 year old acting student and model from Macedonia, with her mother just a couple of weeks after she vanished without a trace from this very apartment in the center of Hollywood. There are no signs of a struggle, just signs of her beautiful soul and spirit. Like the affirmations she's written on her chalkboard: The source of all creation is my role model AND Everything comes from within me. It's the kind of things we discuss here. So for this and so many other reasons, I wanted to help when they asked. Among the worst pains someone can experience is to not know where their own child is, and to fear the worst. This is the story of what happened when we started to unravel out what did happen…and that nothing was being done about it. Please listen and subscribe (*link in bio*), and as the episodes unfold, you will have an opportunity to help as well. If not, just bear witness.That would mean a lot to certain people.

While Tenderfoot is famous for helping to shine a light on
long-forgotten criminal cases, this is the first time the team is entrenched in
a recent, active investigation. On the onset of the investigation little is
known about Shabani, but by the end, the case is likely to be blown wide open.

Who is the main suspect?

Christopher Spotz, now deceased, is the main suspect in the
murder. The 34-year-old aspiring actor admitted to being with Shabani on the
day of her disappearance but insisted he had nothing to do with the aspiring
actress’ death. That was all before he led police on a high-speed chase before
turning a gun on himself, according to The
Mercury News
.  

While Shabani and Spotz had a complicated relationship, in
the months leading up to Shabani’s disappearance and death, the couple got
engaged and even filled out an application for an apartment. While police
believe Spotz is involved in the death of Shabana, the information stops there.  Police were able to uncover a twisted love
triangle and a concocted story that points every finger at Chris Spotz as the
murderer.

Too Old to Die Young release date, trailers, cast, plot, and everything we know about Nicolas Winding Refn's upcoming crime drama

Amazon confirmed Danish film director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Too Old to Die Young for a 10-episode first season back in February 2017.

Two years after Amazon’s heartening announcement, fans are still eagerly awaiting the launch of the series and are anxiously looking out for fresh updates that will shed light on series details that have so far been kept under wraps.

Recent updates have rekindled hope that we won’t have to wait much longer for Too Old to Die Young to launch on Amazon. The musician and composer Cliff Martinez recently shared new major details that sparked an online buzz.

Ahead of the release of Too Old to Die Young, we have compiled everything we know so far about the highly anticipated crime drama series, including release date, teasers and trailers, cast and plot.

Too Old to Die Young release date

Amazon has not yet officially announced a release date for Too Old to Die Young, but the series is expected to debut on Amazon Video in the spring of 2019.

Series co-writer and showrunner Ed Brubaker confirmed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in October 2018 that Too Old to Die Young will launch in the spring of 2019.

He revealed that the editors were still working on the second half of the season and teased that fans should expect to see the best expression so far of Refn’s unique neon-noir style made familiar by the Danish film director’s previous works, such as Drive (2011) and Only God Forgives (2013).

“The show will launch in the spring (of 2019), I believe, on Amazon,” Brubaker said. “[The editors] are still cutting the second half of the season, but what I’ve seen is amazing.”

“It’s the most Nicolas Winding Refn thing that ever existed, honestly,” he enthused. “It’s stylish and shocking, it has some of the best cinematography ever for television.”

Too Old to Die Young: General details

Too Old to Die Young is written by Nicolas Winding Refn in collaboration with the award-winning comic book and TV writer Ed Brubaker.

Refn directed all the 10 episodes of the series which stars Miles Teller and Billy Baldwin.

Refn and Brubaker are also executive producing the series for Amazon with Jeffrey Stott. Rachel Dik and Alexander H. Gayner are also serving as producers.

The series is set in Los Angeles and follows a police officer, who, grieving the murder of his partner, finds himself plunged into the criminal underbelly of the city.

The first look images (see below) for Too Old to Die Young were released in February 2018. Refn released the first teaser trailer (see below) for the series on Twitter in May 2018.

The first look images and the teaser trailer showcase Refn’s continuing fascination with the exploration and stylish visual portrayal of the seedier aspects of the criminal underworld.

Too Old to Die Young: Production

Filming of the series began in Los Angeles in November 2017. Filming of the first episode was completed by mid-January 2018.

Additional filming started in Albuquerque, New Mexico in March 2018, after which the production crew returned to Los Angeles for more filming which finally wrapped up in August 2018.

Episodes of Too Old To Die Young will run for 90 minutes

Musician and composer Cliff Martinez, who composed the score for the series, recently shared new details in an interview with Screen Daily at the recent Rotterdam Film Festival.

According to Martinez, who has worked with Refn on several previous projects, including Drive, Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon (2016), each of the 10 episodes of Too Old to Die Young will be 90 minutes long.

“For me the biggest change is just the endurance to do what I think of as a ten-hour movie or a 16-hour movie in the case of Too Old To Die Young,” Martinez said, when asked to compare his experience scoring the series with his work on films.

And as if to warn fans planning to binge watch the entire 10-episode season over one weekend, he said, “It’s ten episodes that are around 90 minutes apiece. I warned Nic Winding Refn, you better drink a lot of coffee and get a lot of sleep when you can.”

“Too Old To Die Young has gone on for a year,” Martinez continued. “For me the challenge has been to not get burned out and jaded and complacent, but to try to stay engaged and focused for that much time.”

How the decision to make a TV series with feature-length episodes pans out will depend on the quality of the material. Refn fans are hoping that the episodes would be thrilling and engrossing enough to hold viewers’ attention for 90 minutes.

The fact that Refn has previous experience making feature-length TV episodes gives hope. He directed two episodes of ITV’s Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple TV series (2007) based on Agatha Christie’s murder mystery novels featuring the character Miss Marple.

The first Miss Marple episode Refn directed, Towards Zero, ran for 83 minutes. The second episode, Nemesis, ran for 85 minutes. However, unlike the upcoming episodes of Too Old to Die Young, the Miss Marple series consisted of standalone episodes.

Refn’s other writing and directing credits include Valhalla Rising (2009), Only God Forgives (2013), and The Neon Demon (2016) released by Amazon.

He also directed Drive (2011).

In 2018, Refn launched the free streaming service byNWR.com, which features rare films.

Series co-writer Ed Brubaker is known for his semi-autobiographical crime fiction comic series Lowlife (1992-1995), the graphic novel The Fall (2001), and Scene of Crime (1999). He has also written superhero comics for DC and Marvel, including Daredevil, Batman, Uncanny X-Men, Catwoman and Captain America.

Too Old to Die Young teasers and trailers

In April 2018, two months after Amazon confirmed it had ordered 10-episodes of Too Old to Die Young, Refn took to Twitter to post a 30-second clip showing a graphic design, Refn’s name, the title of the upcoming series, with the British punk group The Bollock Brothers’ The Last Supper playing.

Fans assumed that the design, color palette and choice of music were meant as a foretaste of what to expect of Too Old To Die Young in line with what we have seen in Refn’s previous works, such as The Neon Demon (2016) and Only God Forgives (2013).

Refn has also shared several behind-the-scene photos and videos of the upcoming series on his personal Twitter account.

In a November 2017 tweet, Refn appeared to hint that fans should expect a Neon Demon Crossover in Too Old to Die Young.

“Dear Friends! The Neon Demon will appear as One Eye in Too Old To Die Young,” he tweeted.

But it remains uncertain what the controversial film director’s cryptic tweet actually meant.

He debuted the first teaser trailer for the series back in May 2018.

“Dear Friends..! Here’s a Monday explosion,” he tweeted on May 21, 2018. “The sneak peek of #TooOldToDieYoung I showed at Saturday’s @Cinespia screening of #DRIVE. Please follow the continuing production at @TOTDYTV..!”

The teaser, nearly two minutes long, is a compilation of images that give fans an idea of the quality and visual styles to expect of Too Old to Die Young.

Too Old to Die Young cast

Refn has assembled a star studded cast for Too Old to Die Young. The main cast includes Miles Teller (Whiplash, War Dogs, Divergent series, Thank You for Your Service and Fantastic Four) as the leading character Martin and Nell Tiger Free (Game of Thrones’ Myrcella Baratheon) as Janey.

Other cast members include Billy Baldwin (Flatliners, Gossip Girl, Parenthood, MacGyver, 30 Rock), Celestino Cornielle (Days of Our Lives, NCIS: Los Angeles, Minority Report series) as Celestino, and Jena Malone (The Neon Demon, Hunger Games) as Diana.

Also cast are John Hawkes (portrayed Sol Star in HBO’s Deadwood), Cristina Rodlo (Miss Bala) as Yaritza, Augusto Aguilera (The Predator) as Jesus, Callie Hernandez (The Blair Witch, La La Land, The Endless, Alien: Covenant ), Babs Olusanmokun (The Defenders) as Damian, Alexander Gomez (13 Reasons Why) as Guard, Carlotta Montanari as Magdalena, and Dereck Seven Smith (Dallas, Skin in the Game) as Raheem.

Recurring cast members include Hart Bochner (Breaking Away, Terror Train, Supergirl, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Die Hard, Break Up, Liberty Stands Still, Carrie) as Lieutenancy and George Payne.

Amazon announced in March 2017 that Miles Teller had been cast in the leading role of Martin, a police officer who finds himself “entangled in the world of assassins” after the murder of his partner.

The rest of the main cast was announced in November 2017.

The showrunners announced in February 2018 that Hart Brochner had been cast in a recurring role. Refn announce on Twitter in August 2018 that George Payne had also been cast in a recurring role.

Too Old to Die Young plot

Much of the plot of Too Old to Die Young remains under wraps, but according to the official plot summary, Too Old to Die Young follows a police officer who, mourning the death of his partner, journeys through the Los Angeles underworld populated by hitmen, Yakuza soldiers, Mexican cartel assassins, Russian mafia bosses and gangs of teenage killers.

Based on the teasers and the synopsis, fans can expect a fast-paced thriller focused on a cop’s encounter with the criminal underworld, and showcasing Refn’s unique style that emphasizes extreme violence sugarcoated in stylish imagery.

The series will likely be similar to the Pusher trilogy (1996-2005) — directed and written by Refn with Jens Dahl — which explored the Copenhagen underworld.

'He Didn't Have To Die!' Tinder Attacker's Dad Claims 'Gentle' Son Should Not Have Been Tased 6 Times

Erich Stelzer may have stabbed his Tinder date in a horrific rampage, but he didn’t have to die, the YouTube star’s father told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.

The bodybuilder’s grieving father Harry Stelzer claimed police used excessive force on his 25-year-old son, who was tased in his Massachusetts home following his December 27 assault on Maegan Taply.

“He shouldn’t have died,” Harry insisted. “He was tased six times. Six times!”

“The police are protecting themselves and that’s what they do. We understand that. But my son was in there alive, and 15 minutes later, he was dead.”

After the tasing, Erich became unresponsive and died en route to the hospital. However, his 24-year-old victim survived the attack.

Though Harry is devastated over the loss of his son, he says is “glad” Maegan is recovering.

“I’m glad she’s home. I’m glad she’s safe,’ he said.

According to a family attorney, Erich’s loved ones tried to get him help for paranoia and delusions before his death.

I know my son, and I knew he was having trouble. We tried a lot of things,” Harry added.

“But I know him…He is not an evil kid.”

“He was a 6’4″ gentle giant, non-confrontational. He would walk out of places. He would walk away from confrontation.”

Despite what he may have done, Harry said he stands by his late son.

“Even if he was Charles Manson, I would protect him,” he insisted. “I mean he is my son and that’s what you’re supposed to do.

An autopsy for Erich is underway, and the death is under investigation.
