Also in the Afternoon Links: Another ‘Sin City 2’ trailer, a ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie, and a great deal for all-star ‘Breaking Bad’ director Michelle MacLaren.

Breaking Bad superdirector Michelle MacLaren has signed a two-year first-look deal with HBO.

Orange Is the New Black’s wonderful Samira Wiley (Poussey) has been promoted to a series regular for next season.

Nostalgia Pt. I: Sonic the Hedgehog is getting a live-action/CGI hybrid movie.

Adam DeVine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect) joins Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway in The Intern.
