"Penny Dreadful" is Showtime's eight-episode "literary horror" series being penned by film vet John Logan ("Gladiator", "Skyfall") and co-produced by Sam Mendes. The first two episodes of the series will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona ("The Orphanage", "The Impossible").
Featuring Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the "Dracula" novel, "Penny Dreadful" has been lauded by Showtime boss David Nevins as "smart and psychological, but we're not going to be gentle with the horror. I think it's going to scare the s–t out of people."
Dalton is set to play a recurring character of Sir Malcolm, a hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest. The series' first castings were Josh Hartnett ("The Faculty"), as an American "fake cowboy" who enchants the ladies of Victorian era London, and Eva Green ("Camelot"). Production started in October 2013 in Dublin, Ireland and will span 6 months. The series is set to debut on Showtime in Spring 2014.
"IVAN THE FOOL" - animated feature, due in 2017According to IMDb.com, Timothy Dalton is rumoured to have been cast as the Devil in "Ivan the Fool", based on Lev Tolstoy's short story.

Provisional cast also includes Vanessa Redgrave, Michael Gambon and Ed Stoppard. The film is due in 2017.
"TOY STORY OF TERROR" - TV special, 2013
"Toy Story of Terror" is a 30-minute special that reunites the original voice cast from the "Toy Story" franchise. The film follows the adventures of the toys post-"Toy Story 3", in which a fun road trip takes a very unexpected turn. The film has horror feel after one of the toys goes missing at the motel. The rest of the gang finds themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate. That said, the producers took inspiration from the horror genre - "Psycho", "Aliens" and "Predator", in particular - but found the right balance for both adults and children.
While "Toy Story of Terror" includes Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles) and Rex (Wallace Shawn), Jessie (Joan Cusack) has a more prominent role in the special. Additionally, Bonnie's toys - Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton) and Trixie (Kristen Schaal) - who first appeared in the third installment, are featured, while we also get to actually meet Combat Carl, who briefly appeared in the first film when he was blown up by Sid, who is voiced by Carl Weathers.
The film premiered on October 16, 2013 on ABC.

"EVERYTHING OR NOTHING: THE UNTOLD STORY OF 007"
- feature documentary
The film focuses on three men with a shared dream - Bond producers Albert R. Broccoli, Harry Saltzman and author Ian Fleming. It's the thrilling and inspiring narrative behind the longest running film franchise in cinema history which began in 1962. With unprecedented access both to the key players involved and to Eon Productions' extensive archive, this is the first time the inside story of the franchise has ever been told on screen in this way. Director Stevan Riley follows a story that begins with a ground-breaking spy thriller and continues six Bonds and five decades later. While Bond was saving the world from chaos and catastrophe on screen, this compelling documentary draws back the curtain to reveal the battles, threats and real stakes unfolding behind the camera.
"Everything or Nothing" is a MGM/Passion Pictures/Red Box Films/Columbia Pictures production. It was directed by Stevan Riley ("Fire in Babylon"), produced by John Battsek ("One Day in September", ""The Tillman Story") and Simon Chinn ("Man on Fire", "Project NIM") to coincide with the 50th anniversary of James Bond films.
The film will premiere in the US online on Global James Bond Day, October 5, 2012, as part of an EPIX Free Preview Weekend (direct link: www.epixhd.com/everything-or-nothing-the-untold-story-of-007).
In the UK the film will be screened at selected Odeon Cinemas.
