I thought it would be cool to be able to follow specific directors, writers, actors, whatever and receive notifications when new movies are coming out or news specific to your favorite movie and tv related people. I am a big fan of directors so I often look up my favorites to see what movies they may have coming out. It would be cool if this app simply sent you a push notification to your phone to inform you of news surrounding your favorite stars and directors.

The IMDb app for Android currently has this feature, allowing the user to select Names or Titles that they wish to be notified about. Apparently the iOS version does not yet have this feature.

On the other hand, Android users cannot access their lists on the app; something that is, as I understand it, currently available to iOS users.

It is not the same as the one I was proposing though.

I don't care lets say for being notified with the latest news or showtimes concerning an actor or a director.
I would prefer, however, to isolate only the new movies an actor is starring at or a director has directed and in consequence, to have the possibility after that to add that movie in my watchlist or not.

as i wrote to another post with the same idea couple of minutes before.

I was about to add the same idea as a post till I saw yours. It would be a great function and to be frunk, I don't even know why this is not yet implemented.

Check an actor/director or even a writer, add him to your follow-up list (in a similar manner you add a movie to your watchlist) and be immediately notified about each production/movie etc he is acting to or he has directed. Simple as that!
