Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, April solicitations -- and more!


In some ways, water has been Erica Durance's personal Kryptonite.

And it hasn't helped that her Lois Lane character always seems to be facing a watery grave in The CW's Smallville.

Lois hit her head on a dive and had to be rescued by Aquaman in "Aqua," was paralyzed with water rushing in on her in "Recruit" and was dunked repeatedly by thugs in "Arrow."

"No, I don't like water," Durance said during The Continuum's recent visit to the Smallville set. "But each time I'm becoming more and more comfortable, so that's good.

"I mean, it's like facing a fear."

Durance said that "Arrow," which was rebroadcast on Thursday night, is one of her favorite episodes.

"It was all over the place," she said. "I got to do some wirework and I got rescued. And I had to go in and there and fight it up. And, of course, they had the drowning."

So the good news is Durance is getting used to the water work. The bad news is that the next new episode of Smallville is called "Hydro," and it appears Lois will be at least getting wet again, as evidenced by the image released by The CW this week.

Look for a complete interview with Durance soon here in The Continuum.

In other Smallville news:

* According to a source, either this season's 17th or 19th episode -- or possibly both -- will feature guest-star heroes.

* Glen Winter is the director of the upcoming "Crimson" episode. He previously directed "Fallout."

* Look for more on Smallville on Saturday here in The Continuum.

NBM Publishing has announced that film producers Jason Koornick and Lawrence Blume have optioned Bluesman, a graphic novel from writer Rob Vollmar and artist Pablo Callejo.

Bluesman plunges traveling musicians Lem and Ironwood into Deep South juke joints of the 1920s. When Ironwood tries to stop a white man from attacking his black mistress, all three end up dead. Lem, the sole survivor, finds a rabidly racist posse chasing him throughout the South. The story's conclusion presents an unexpected dramatic twist.

"When I first read Bluesman, I was struck by Rob and Pablo's ability to convey the emotion of America's homegrown music in a compelling narrative story," Koornick said. "Lem's journey is both archetypal and totally original. I'm excited to produce a film that is worthy of Rob and Pablo's fine work."

Through his Eye In The Sky Entertainment, Koornick's producing credits include Revolution Studios' upcoming thriller Next, starring Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore. Blume's award-winning feature film Martin & Orloff led The Hollywood Reporter to name him one of the "Ten Rising Stars of Comedy."

Grammy-winning blues artist Keb' Mo' is attached to produce the movie's soundtrack and to act in a supporting role. A modern musician with southern roots, the Epic Records singer-guitarist has won three Grammys for Best Contemporary Blues Album and sold more than two million records. His latest album, Suitcase, has been nominated for a Grammy in 2007.
