Rose has been hinting on her official twitter a couple of times lately that’s she been working on a new project: a musical feature film! Earlier this year, she reveled she was back home in New Zealand where she was working with director David Stubbs. Davis has been working on the project “Daffodils” since 2016, and we are so excited to share with you that our very own Rose has been cast as the lead character Rose!

Below you can read an old article/interview with Stubbs, where he discusses the project and how he thinks it’s going to be a big hit. You can read the full interview + watch a video where he talks about the film at the source here. Now that the filming has officially began, we’ll hopefully be treated to some on set photos and more information soon. We’ve all been hoping to hear more of Rose’s beautiful singing voice for so many years now, so I really can’t wait for this film! Stay tuned for any new information, we’ll keep you posted.

Daffodils, the musical play deep in the hearts of many Kiwis, could become the next smash-hit film from New Zealand. Kiwi director and producer David Stubbs, will fly to London in search of backers next month, to make his dream come true. Stubbs believes international film fans will be charmed by the real-life love story. “I think this is the big one. I believe it will resonate strongly with audiences.”

“This is a good sign because only a few films outside Europe are invited. I’m very confident.” As co-founder of Emmy Award-winning television and film production company KHF Media, Stubbs will pitch the script to the world’s top sales agents at the Production Finance Market (PFM). Sales agents are responsible for distributing films to international markets and are some of the most powerful people in the film industry. “The objective is to lock in overseas distribution deals and to do that you need to try and get as much overseas investment as possible.” Being invited to the PFM indicated Daffodils had potential to cross over to an international audience, he said. “I’m hopeful that Daffodils will be the next big film overseas.”

In the past it had been hard to pitch New Zealand films internationally, but now there was an appetite for world cinema and there was a large market in Europe for Kiwi stories. “I think there is a freshness about Daffodils in terms of our culture and music that will appeal. It has a strong classic storyline with the universal themes of love and regret and involves great Kiwi music. We are confident it will appeal to people overseas.” Stubbs likened the movie to the Oscar winning Irish film, Once. The New Zealand film industry was in a positive phase and there was a lot of buzz about Kiwi film-makers overseas, he said.

Productions such as Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Tickled had been great ambassadors for New Zealand. “Hunt for the Wilderpeople is an example of a Kiwi story that is resonating overseas and making money. It has opened the door a bit for me. It’s a good time for New Zealand film-makers.” More New Zealand audiences than ever were now watching Kiwi movies, which was a good sign, he said. “Film-makers are proving there is no cultural cringe like there used to be.”

Stubbs last movie Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses was a documentary about the 2007 exorcism death of a woman from Stubbs’ home suburb of Wainuiomata. “Belief was a very difficult film to make and a sad story that was quite gruelling for all of us. After that I decided the next project should be something that showed another side of New Zealand culture.” Daffodils was about the misunderstanding of unspoken things that put relationships at risk and explores why some things are not said and how Kiwi men act in relationships, he said. | Read full story at source

Hello fellow brainies! We finally have the first official season 4 content, as the episode stills from the first two episodes of the season have been released. The episodes are titled “Are You Ready for Some Zombies?” and “Blue Bloody“, and they both look hilarious judging by the stills! The season premiere is only 8 days away now, so we’ll hopefully have a lot of updates in the coming week. All the stills have been added to our gallery, and you can check out an article on the season + the official synopsis for the premiere below.

Episode 4×01: Are you Ready for Some Zombies? – While investigating the murder of a superfan of the Seattle Seahawks, Liv has a surprising vision. Major mentors young, homeless zombies, while Ravi still carries a torch for Peyton. Blaine deals with a threat looming from his past.


The CW has released new photos for “Blue Bloody”, the second episode of iZombie’s fourth season. While the episode’s plot is currently a mystery, it appears that Liv Moore (Rose McIver) will eat the brain of a “rich, haughty dowager” in the episode, and it looks like that will have some pretty weird results.

Aside from Liv being on “dowager brain”, iZombie’s newest venture will give plenty for fans to take in. At the end of last season, “D-Day” came to fruition, turning Seattle into the zombie capital of the United States. According to McIver, this will make some interesting parallels to real-world political issues.

“The show has hinged on [zombies] being a secret for so long that [going forward], how was that going to transpire? What happens season 4?” McIver told ComicBook.com. “It’s sort of an authoritarian dictatorship, which obviously she doesn’t respond to, but she also knows that zombies and humans co-existing is an incredible stretch. How do we find a way that makes everybody feel safe, that makes nobody feel marginalized? It’s so on-point politically right now, it’s something I’m really proud to be a part of that in a comedy, zombie, fun show, still kind of is making comment about how we treat other and how we respond to having to coexist and tolerate and understand each other’s opinions.”

“We’re going to pick up next season three months later, and the United States has walled off Seattle like it’s West Berlin,” showrunner Rob Thomas previously told ComicBook.com. “Chase is hanging on by a very thin thread; it’s like every day is the Cuban missile crisis. Brains are coming in, but they aren’t getting as many as they expected, and zombies are hungry. In fact, the opening sequence in season four is going to follow a brain from the moment a man dies somewhere in Texas to the moment it reaches the brain tube and is ingested by a Seattle zombie. In fact, it’s even going to start earlier than that. We’re going to see a commercial on TV; we want to get someone like Laura Linney making a commercial pleading for the people of the United States to sign their brain donor card.”

iZombie’s fourth season will debut on February 26th at 9/8c on The CW. “Blue Bloody” will air on March 5th.

Hello fellow Brainies! The CW has finally released the official trailer for the season 4 of iZombie, and I’ve attached it below for you to watch. It looks great! In case you’ve missed it, the season premieres on Monday February 26 on The CW.

Hello fellow Brainies! Today is the first of 6 remaining Mondays before the season 4 premiere of our favorite show, and we’ll count down with iZombie specials on each of the 6 Mondays! We’ll try to make the wait seem shorter, by looking back at our favorite moments, brains, characters and more. Each post will be different, but they all have in common that they will honor the best Rom-Com-Zom-Dram on television!

For our first post, we’re gonna look back at out 10 favorite brains from season 1, 2 and 3. These are ranked by order of episode, but you can help us rank them by best to worst in the poll at the bottom of the post. There’s been so many great brains over the three seasons, so this was a very hard pick – but these 10 stands out as the most memorable, wittiest and most creative! Make sure to leave a comment in the comments section below, letting us know if you agree or disagree with our list. Is there a certain brain you feel we should have included? Let us know.

To make this post a little diverse, we’ll present some of the brains as videos we have created with our favorite scenes, some with GIFs and some with quotes and information. Thank you so much to one of our favorite iZombie tumblrs, iZombie source, for all the GIFs used in this post. Make sure to follow them if you have an account at the site! Now, let’s get to it shall we?

Crazy Brain (Scott E.) – 1×11

Throughout this list, you’ll probably pick up on that a lot of the brains we’ve chosen are due to the comedy they provide. That said, the reason we have decided to include this first one is not due to the comedy it provides (at least not solely – but we all sure laughed out loud when Liv was shouting at the devil inside the vending machine!). In the episode, Liv eats the brain of Scott E., a former drug dealer with a troubled childhood who previously worked for Stacey Boss. Scott E. was the identical twin brother of Don E., who we met later on in the show (and who is still one of our favorite characters). He was present at the Lake Washington Boat Party, and witnessing the humans turn into zombies mixed with his already unstable mental history (which included hearing voices) pushed him over the edge. He went crazy, and was admitted to the Blooming Grove Mental Hospital. There he started an affair with one of his doctors, Dr. Maddy Larson, who became pregnant with his child after endless tries with her own husband. Scott E. tried to convince her to take an abortion, but Dr. Larson refused and killed him. Once Liv ate his brain, she started hearing voices and seeing a red devil which followed her around. Unlike all the previous brains, it became clear that she would not be getting the regular old flashbacks with people’s memories, but rather learn about Scott E.’s past through these visions. The reason for its inclusion on our list is the very clever writing, which really makes this brain stand out from all the others. Liv and Clive are usually lead to the murderers by following the leads Liv’s flashbacks give them, but we love the idea that getting these hints from the victims aren’t always reliable.

We also have to mention the heartbreaking scene where Liv realize her confession about being a zombie to Major (which he took very well) was all in her head, caused by Scott E.’s condition. Once she meets Major again, she’s unable to confess anything before he tells her that he knows zombies are real, and that he’s going to kill them all. We were brought through all the emotions and visions together with Liv, not knowing what was real and what wasn’t – other than the obvious devil appearances. When Liv realized Johnny Frost was just a vision, we were just as confused as her. The writing in this episode was so good, it really stands out as one of the most creative episodes of the series!

We have the first iZombie news of the year, friends! The CW has finally set a date for the season premiere of iZombie, and it has apparently been moved from its Tuesday spot to Mondays. It’ll follow DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow”, airing at 9 p.m. ET/PT! The premiere will air February 26th. Stay tuned for more iZombie news as we get closer to the date we’ve all been waiting for!

CBR | iZombie, The CW’s rom-com-zom-dram (the network’s words, not ours), will kick off its fourth season Monday, Feb. 26, following
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Loosely based on the DC/Vertigo comic of the same name by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred, iZombie tells the story of med student turned zombie Liv Moore. She eventually discovers that she assumes the personality of the people whose brains she consumes, which helps at her job at the morgue with helping cops solve crimes. The third season ended with the world being informed that zombies exist, and Liv’s friend Ravi ingesting a vaccine for the zombie virus, and urging Liv to scratch him to test it out.

The series came under scrutiny last year following allegations of sexual assault involving actor Robert Knepper. The network conducted an internal inquiry, and subsequently announced it found no evidence of misconduct on the iZombie set. Actors Rose McIver and Rahul Kohli later offered their own separate statements. Knepper was promoted to series regular for Season 4.

Returning Monday, Feb. 26, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, iZombie stars Rose McIver, Rahul Koli, Malcolm Goodwin, Robert Buckley, David Anders, Aly Michalka, and Robert Knepper.

For those of you who have been living under a rock the last two iZombie seasons, #BehindTheBrains is what the cast and crew of the show have decided to tag all their filming and on set content on social media.

While we eagerly await season 4 of our favorite show, articles teasing the upcoming season is starting to trickle in. Below you can read an iZombie article ComicBookDC recently posted, where they share parts of their interview with Rose from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con!

Comicbook – In an increasingly polarizing world, iZombie star Rose McIver says she is proud of being part of a show that uses a fantastical world of sentient zombies to comment on the current political environment without being condescending or cruel.

Following the end of season 3, zombies have been revealed to the world, with Seattle being the zombie capital of the United States and a call out for brains from around the country to satisfy the needs of its population. While Seattle has a democratically-elected mayor (also a zombie), its primary authority will be Chase Graves, the corporate executive and military contractor played by Jason Dohring.

“The show has hinged on [zombies] being a secret for so long that [going forward], how was that going to transpire? What happens season 4?” McIver said during a recent conversation with ComicBook.com, suggesting that life under Chase Graves, who is the de facto leader of Seattle’s zombies, is not in Liv’s comort zone at all.

“It’s sort of an authoritarian dictatorship, which obviously she doesn’t respond to, but she also knows that zombies and humans co-existing is an incredible stretch,” McIver added. “How do we find a way that makes everybody feel safe, that makes nobody feel marginalized? It’s so on-point politically right now, it’s something I’m really proud to be a part of that in a comedy, zombie, fun show, still kind of is making comment about how we treat other and how we respond to having to coexist and tolerate and understand each other’s opinions.”

“We’re going to pick up next season three months later, and the United States has walled off Seattle like it’s West Berlin,” showrunner Rob Thomas previously told ComicBook.com. “Chase is hanging on by a very thin thread; it’s like every day is the Cuban missile crisis. Brains are coming in, but they aren’t getting as many as they expected, and zombies are hungry. In fact, the opening sequence in season four is going to follow a brain from the moment a man dies somewhere in Texas to the moment it reaches the brain tube and is ingested by a Seattle zombie. In fact, it’s even going to start earlier than that. We’re going to see a commercial on TV; we want to get someone like Laura Linney making a commercial pleading for the people of the United States to sign their brain donor card.”

While there is no firm premiere date yet for season 4, iZombie will return in early 2018 on The CW. The first three seasons are currently available on Netflix.
