The Showtime TV series Masters of Sex will premiere on September 29, 2013. Michael Sheen plays William Masters and Lizzy Caplan plays Virginia Johnson in this fictionalized account of the sex researchers.
Despite there being no definite release date for Mariah Mundi and the Midas Box, producer Peter Bevan has told The Northern Echo that based on how well the first movie has gone and the response from test audiences, the project has been green lit for a sequel.
It is rumoured to be based on the as-yet-unreleased fourth book in the Mariah Mundi series from G. P. Taylor, rather than either of the two already published book sequels. Michael Sheen is appearing as Captain Charity, and while this character is present in the two currently published sequels, I do not know yet if his character will feature in the new book and film.

According to Thomas Maier, author of the novel Masters Of Sex: A Biography of Masters and Johnson in which the TV show is based on, has written on his blog that shooting of the 13 part series will commence in January.
Michael Sheen stars as William Masters and Lizzy Caplan co-stars as Virginia Johnson, two pioneers of studies into sexuality in the 1950s.
The pilot was shot in New York earlier this year, but the principal filming will take place in Los Angeles.
Another co-star of Michael’s, Beau Bridges, who plays the part of Master’s mentor had this to say about the TV show.
It’s about Masters and Johnson, the man and woman who instigated all these incredible sexual experiments back in the ’50s,” Bridges said. “I am the dean of the university where these experiments are happening. I’m sort of mentoring Masters — he’s my hope for the future — so I’m a little freaked when he tells me what he’s going to do.
When asked in a recent interview what he thought of his leading man and lady:
Oh, they’re great! They couldn’t have picked two better people to carry this show — they’re gonna knock some people’s socks off.
The Television Critics Association Summer Press tour were shown clips of the program Masters of Sex. This Showtime pilot stars Michael Sheen and Lizzie Caplan as the sex researchers Masters and Johnson. The pilot will be aired on the Showtime cable channel in 2013.
