One of the film's original stars and co-writers, Dan Aykroyd, recently told The Huffington Post that he sees the franchise being something similar to what Marvel does. He said, "We need as many as the artists want to produce with the concept. I mean, it's kind of like the Marvel series. There's opportunities here to do different types of stories."

MTV IS DONE WITH 'EYE CANDY': Victoria Justice needs a new job. MTV has cancelled her series Eye Candy after one season. She broke the news on TwitLonger writing, "Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2. Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn't have asked for better cast mates to work with either. They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there's our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of. A very special thank you to Jason Blum and the Blumhouse team, you guys are amazing! Jessica, thanks for all your hard work and dedication to Eye Candy. Last but definitely not at all least, thank you to the amazing fans. I saw all of your WW trends (it might be 23 or 24 to date) and your unflinching support. It's because of all of you that I get to do what I love. I am beyond grateful for that. It made me so happy that you embraced the show the way you did. I was so lucky to have you guys along for the ride, because you made it that much more exciting!"
CRISTELA ALONZO ADDRESSES UNCERTAIN FUTURE OF 'CRISTELA': Cristela Alonzo is as unsure of her show's future as everyone else. She wrote a blog post on Friday (April 17th) to discuss the season finale and thank fans for their support. The comedian explained, "I want to be realistic and honest about things. I'm not sure if the show is coming back. It worries me and not because I want to be on TV more. It worries me because I think this show gives a voice to people that haven't been given a voice before. Cristela isn't a flashy show. It's not a slick single-cam that looks like it's a movie shot on a weekly basis, it doesn't have voiceovers telling you thoughts the characters are currently having and it certainly doesn't use crass and edgy things to tell its stories. That was my choice to not do any of those things. I wanted to take a harder path, a path that really isn't taken on TV anymore. I wanted to make a TV show like the kind I grew up with, the kind that looked like a play, the kind that made the live studio audience we tape in front of, just as important as the cast because they are as important. These nice people wrote very nice things about our show #Cristela. What a wonderful thing to know that our little show crossed their minds! We shot twenty-two episodes of this show and yet hardly anyone knows we're on the air. The viewers we have are so loyal. They watch our show every week because they remember we're on, not because we have so much promotion." Cristela's post goes on to address some of the negative criticism of the show.
