Akiva Goldsman to Develop Dan Brown's 'Wild Symphony'

Author Dan Brown's children's book Wild Symphony will soon be a movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Akiva Goldsman is developing an animated film based on the book. The film will follow Maestro Mouse as he travels across the world to find members for an orchestra. The book was first published in 2020, with illustrations by Susan Batori. Brown will write the film's screenplay. It will also feature music written by Brown. "In many ways, my lifetime love for classical music began with film, and so I'm especially excited to be working with such talented partners to bring Wild Symphony to life in the form of an animated feature," said Brown. Brown is well-known as the author of the Robert Langdon book series, which began with 2000's Angels & Demons. The books have been adapted into a film series directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon. A prequel television series The Lost Symbol was released on Peacock in 2021 and starred Ashley Zuckerman as Robert Langdon.

Star Trek: Picard Showrunner Akiva Goldsman Shares The Origin Of Season 2's Nerdiest Reference

This post contains plot details about the second episode of "Star Trek: Picard" season 2. "Star Trek" has a long memory. So do its fans. And so do the people making it. With nearly 60 years worth of stories, characters, and canon, the "Trek" franchise is a buffet of goodness to draw upon, to reference, to reinvent, and to revisit. "Star Trek: Picard," which is currently streaming its second season on Paramount+, is very much a show about looking back on a life long-lived, so it's appropriate that it would reach back into "Star Trek" history for one of the most amusing canonical references in recent memory.

Star Trek: Picard boss Akiva Goldsman and Patrick Stewart disagree on whether Season 3 should be the final season

While Season 2 just premiered on Paramount+, Star Trek: Picard is about to wrap filming on Season 3 after 13 solid months of shooting. Goldsman, one of Picard's four co-creators, tells Rolling Stone the show will likely end with Season 3, unless something “miraculous” happens. However, Stewart is unwilling to be that definitive. “With something like this, I never say never,” he says. “I did for a long time, but my experience with filming Picard has shifted my prejudices a little. I don’t know. All I know right now is I need a break. In 10 days’ time I’m going to have one. Then we’ll see. I’ll think about it.”
