It seemed inevitable that something would have to give behind the scenes in the DCEU, and with the recent success of Wonder Woman, the hiring of Matt Reeves to helm The Batman, and Ben Affleck’s heavily-rumored departure — among other things — a major change felt imminent. That change has come, as a new report reveals that a huge shakeup is underway with the DCEU, with the head of the comic book film production division leaving his post, while the role of DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns will become “more advisory in nature.”
Well that was fast. Although we’re still mighty skeptical about Quentin Tarantino actually directing this thing, his Star Trek pitch is moving along rather quickly. The director has met with a trio of writers, with one reportedly emerging as the frontrunner to script the new Star Trek movie based on Tarantino’s idea. But the most interesting part of the latest update on this wacky concept is that Paramount has agreed to Tarantino’s stipulation that the film be rated R.
By now you’re all familiar with Aquaman, the walking collection of action figure one-liners and whiskey swigs played by Jason Momoa in the DCEU. Thanks to Justice League, we know what Aquaman looks and sounds like — it might not even be crazy to suggest that we kind of know what he smells like, too. Salt water, whiskey, and leather, right? So while the latest image of Aquaman isn’t exactly a first look, it is most definitely our first look at Jason “MY MAN!” Momoa in his superhero’s solo movie.
Ryan Reynolds is adding another quirky note to the delightfully bizarre timeline of his career, which is already punctuated with a strange collection of notable characters like Van Wilder, Green Lantern, and Deadpool — the latter of which has helped us forget all about the first two (until now, I am so sorry). The actor is trading in his mercenary spandex and seemingly infinite mental Rolodex of profanity for a Pokeball and some decidedly family-friendly language in Detective Pikachu.
We’ve been wondering what the director of Logan would pick for his next project, and although last week it seemed like James Mangold would follow up his gritty superhero flick with a more kid-friendly endeavor, a new report says otherwise. Mangold is set to direct an untitled drama about Patty Hearst, with Elle Fanning in talks to portray the notorious heiress-turned-left wing terrorist.
Judging by the new trailer for Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, you really do not want to find out what “hammer time” means for Joaquin Phoenix. But we’re going to find out anyway when the new thriller hits theaters early next April — or now, if you watch the trailer, which teases a heavy flick in which Phoenix does his best Oldboy impression, playing a “fixer” who hunts down the evil men who kidnap young girls.
And in today’s least shocking news item, Disney wants a white dude to direct an upcoming live-action remake of a classic animated movie. The studio has reportedly made Rob Marshall their top pick to helm The Little Mermaid, based on their 1989 animated adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale. Marshall, who previously directed Into the Woods and the forthcoming Mary Poppins Returns for the studio, is said to be taking the holidays to mull it over.
Universal is gearing up to unleash the first official trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on Thursday with a series of new teasers for the upcoming sequel. The studio has released a total of five teasers since yesterday; at this rate, you won’t even need an actual trailer by the end of the week because you could probably stick all of these clips together via digital glue and make one of your own.
Baby Driver isn’t the first Edgar Wright film to spur talk of a sequel, but it is the first time that the director has been open to making a follow-up to one of his features. Wright previously revealed that Sony had asked him to consider a sequel to his wonderful action-musical, and according to a new interview, he’s close to signing a deal with the studio to at least write the screenplay for Baby Driver 2. He also has some thoughts on the recent sexual misconduct allegations against Kevin Spacey, who played the villain in the first film.
