Major Spoilers Ahead. If that bothers you, move on to the next story!

Slice of SciFi reports here that on a panel for the Museum of Television and Radio's William S. Paley Festival, Tim Kring announced that he knows the fate of every one of the Heroes.
He also stated that he has their destiny for the end of Season One "
all mapped out." Kring said: "I know everyone's fate." He revealed that Mr. Linderman, revealed last week as actor Malcom McDowell, is also a gifted hero and the man behind New York's demise, but, he said, unlike Sylar, his wanton destruction is done with pure intentions. He also told those present that Nathan Petrelli may end up in the Oval Office of the White House, if Linderman's predictions are correct.

Summer Knight

Buzzy Multimedia issued a press release annoucing that the unabridged audio book version of Jim Butcher's "Summer Knight," the fourth novel in his acclaimed Dresden Files series will be available April, 2007 in a 10-CD set, SRP $44.95. James Marsters returns to read the tales of Chicago detective, and practicing wizard, Harry Dresden, who, this time, is drawn into investigating a murder in the world of Faerie that has the potential for literally Earth-shattering consequences. The books are available through the BuzzyMedia Website. Butcher's Dresden books have been loosely adapted for television as the episodic series, "The Dresden Files," currently running on SciFi Channel.

TV DVD News has several new bits of news to proclaim. First there is something about "24" here, "House, M.D." set news here, classic "Dr. Who" stuff here, and news about a huge sale at Amazon
on TV DVD sets here.

Horton Hears a Who

Variety says here that Jim Carrey, Steve Carell, Carol Burnett, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Isla Fisher, Dan Fogler, Amy Poehler, Dane Cook, Jaime Pressly and Jonah Hill make up the voice cast of CGI film "Horton Hears a Who." The film, with a script by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio based on the Dr. Seuss book, will be released by 20th Century Fox Animation on March 14, 2008. Burnett will play the role of the always skeptical Kangaroo, Carrey the title character, and Carell will take on the role of the Mayor of Who-ville.

The Midnight Meat Train

Director Ryuhei Kitumara's "The Midnight Meat Train" based on the story from Clive Barker's "Books of Blood" collection, will star Vinnie Jones, Bradley Cooper, Brooke Shields and Leslie Bibb. The movie will have Jones as a serial killer who finds his victims in the subways. Cooper is a struggling photographer who wants to capture "the subway butcher" on film. Shields' art gallery owner befriends Cooper, and Bibb plays his girlfriend. Production starts in Los Angeles later this month.

Kicked, Bitten and Scratched

Naomi Watts will star in the film version of Amy Sutherland's "Kicked, Bitten and Scratched: Life and Lessons at the World's Premiere School for Exotic Animal Trainers." The book tells of a year the author spent with students at the Exotic Animal Training and Management Program at Moorpark College, where students learn how to communicate with animals like camels, emus, baboons, cougars, wolves and snakes. Written by Todd Louiso and Jacob Koskoff, the film is being developed as a romantic comedy.
