Sir, someone set us up the newsbomb

  • Peter Jackson wants to direct an episode of Doctor Who. His price: One yellow Dalek. (via Nerd Approved)
  • Karen Gillan has been cast in Adult Swim's National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle. I'm surprised that she's gone from Doctor Who to a TV show on Adult Swim. (via The Nerdist)
  • John Scalzi (Old Man's War, Redshirts) is promoting a petition by Shadow Ops author Myke Cole to get the United States Department of Agriculture to publish a daily recommended intake of bacon. No really. (via Whatever)
  • inXile Studios is playing hardball with their Kickstarter for a game called Torment: The Tides of Numenera. They've got two stretch goal incentives up sure to appeal to the geek in all of us. They're currently at $2.9 million, but if they manage to raise $3.25 million, Patrick Rothfuss (The Name of the Wind) will contribute some writing to the game. If they raise $3.5 million, then Chris Avellone, who wrote for such games as Planescape: Torment, two Fallout games (2 and New Vegas), and others will throw in some writing of his own.
