Back in 2005, Anton starred in the independent drama-thriller, Fierce People, with Diane Lane, Donald Sutherland, Kristen Stewart, and Chris Evans. I have updated the gallery with additional production stills and poster from the film, as well as 1,053 high-resolution screencaps. Huge thanks to Dianne at Chris Evans Online for generously donating the screencaps!

David E. Kelley’s series adaptation of Mr. Mercedes is moving forward.

The forthcoming AT&T Audience Network drama has tapped Penny Dreadful grad Harry Treadaway to replace the late Anton Yelchin, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Mr. Mercedes, based on Stephen King’s 2014 book of the same name, follows a demented killer who taunts a retired police detective with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

Treadaway will play Brady Hartsfield, a mentally deranged ice cream truck driver and IT worker who is secretly the Mercedes Killer. He will star opposite Brendan Gleeson, who will portray Detective Bill Hodges, a retired cop driven out of retirement when an old nemesis reappears.

The adaptation received a straight-to-series order in May with Yelchin and Gleeson attached. However, the Star Trek actor was tragically killed in a car accident the following month. He was 27 years old.

Kelley will serve as showrunner on the series, which is being produced by Sonar Entertainment. Jack Bender (Lost) is set to direct. The duo will executive produce with Temple Hill Entertainment’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. Mr. Mercedes is slated for a 2018 debut on DirecTV and AT&T U-verse.

Anton’s co-star, Felicity Jones, from the 2011 film, Like Crazy, recently spoke with the Hollywood Reporter, wherein she opened up about Anton’s passing.

Then, in 2011, she got cast as a lead in Like Crazy, playing an English girl in Los Angeles who falls in love with an American boy — played by the late Anton Yelchin — before getting deported. The film became a Sundance darling and got Jones noticed by Hollywood (and upstaged Jennifer Lawrence in the process), even if it didn’t exactly explode at the box office (grossing only $3.7 million). It also began a friendship with Yelchin that lasted until his death in June, when his Jeep Cherokee rolled down the driveway of his L.A. home and crushed him against a gate. “It’s been devastating,” Jones says of the tragedy, obviously still shaken. “It doesn’t feel like there’s any justice or there’s no way of understanding it, really. It’s just been a very difficult time for his family. They’re very dignified, beautiful people. He was just like no one else. He really was a unique soul.”

Hi guys, as I mentioned before, I would turn this into a tribute site. After months of slowly working on it, I’ve finally finished the revamp. Sorry this took me a while, I wanted the new look to be perfect. I hope you all like it. And thanks to everyone who participated in the poll for the new site name, Remembering Anton Yelchin, with a little tagline I couldn’t help but include, RAY of Light. I will be working on filling up the gallery next, and I have a few ideas in mind on what else to add on the site, but nothing final yet. If you have suggestions, you’re more than welcome to send them my way. You can follow the site’s Twitter for the updates, which is now at @AntonYelchinCom. :)
