News broke late last Friday evening that Fox had halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody, curiously citing the “unexpected unavailability” of Bryan Singer. Although a representative for the director released a statement citing a “personal health matter,” many suspected that Singer’s absence and subsequent production interruption signaled the director’s imminent exit — whether by choice or by force. Those suspicions have been proven correct, as a new report reveals that Singer has been fired from Bohemian Rhapsody over repeated absences and unprofessional behavior that has led to altercations with the cast of the long-developing Queen biopic.
When Kevin Spacey was hit with allegations of sexual misconduct, Netflix took swift, immediate action: Production on House of Cards was suspended as Netflix launched an internal investigation, and Spacey’s employment with the streaming giant was terminated. While the company acted responsibly in the wake of growing allegations against Spacey, it also came under fire for its hypocrisy. Danny Masterson, star of The Ranch, is the subject of an active police investigation based on four women’s claims that the actor raped them in the early 2000s. Netflix has taken no action against Masterson, and according to at least one company executive, there’s a disturbing reason behind it.
News broke Friday evening that production has shut down on Bohemian Rhapsody, the long-developing and oft-troubled Freddie Mercury biopic that finally took off this year under the direction of Bryan Singer. Twentieth Century Fox has “temporarily halted” production on the film, which stars Rami Malek as the late Queen frontman, due to what the studio is calling “the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer.”
Sony has set a release date for Quentin Tarantino’s new film, which is sorta-kinda-not-really about the Manson Family murders. The project is the acclaimed filmmaker’s first without the involvement of disgraced former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein. After Tarantino parted ways with Weinstein in the wake of numerous sexual harassment and assault allegations, he set up shop with Sony, which will release his untitled (or title yet-to-be-revealed) film in 2019.
In Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn was one of the few shining spots in David Ayer’s otherwise messy attempt to introduce the grimy super-villain collective. Margot Robbie’s natural charisma elevated the character beyond Joker’s occasional girlfriend and sidekick (and emotional punching bag), and she really zeroed in on the aspects of her personality that have made Harley Quinn such a fan-favorite. It’s no surprise that Warner Bros. is already plotting a pair of spinoffs for the character, but according to Robbie, there’s a third Harley project in the works, too.
Just yesterday, Marvel unleashed the first official trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, their biggest film to date. The next chapter in the superhero ensemble series will bring the largest number of MCU characters together for an epic battle against the villainous and power-hungry Thanos. While Josh Brolin’s big purple villain received a fair amount of flack from fans (he does look a little silly without the helmet), the trailer also featured many more amazing moments worth cheering — in particular, Captain America’s sexy new beard.
Although only the second installment in the latest Star Wars trilogy is hitting theaters in a couple of weeks, Lucasfilm is already looking ahead to the future of the franchise. The Last Jedi writer and director Rian Johnson has been tapped to develop a new trilogy with new characters as the franchise finally leaves the Skywalker saga behind. That means we’ll be saying goodbye to some of our favorite characters from the current trilogy — and that includes Rey, according to Daisy Ridley.
Earlier this year, we spoke with director Niki Caro about her upcoming reimagining of Mulan, one of many live-action remakes in the works at Disney. In light of the white-washing controversies surrounding films like Ghost in the Shell and Death Note, there has been some understandable concern among fans regarding Disney’s remake of their animated classic. But as Caro promised, the studio is committed to casting Chinese actors in the live-action update, and they’ve made good on their word (thus far) today by enlisting actress Liu Yifei (aka Crystal Liu) in the title role.
Surely, at some point while watching Scooby-Doo’s animated adventures over the years, you must have wondered aloud to no one in particular, “Where the heck did Daphne and Velma come from? I mean, what is their deal?” The history of the Mystery Machine’s lady passengers has been shrouded in secrecy for far too long, but thanks to a new live-action movie, we will finally learn the details of their murky past. And maybe — just maybe — we’ll find out how they wound up hanging out with a stoner who owns a van, a dog with a limited vocabulary and a speech impediment, and a man who is clearly old enough to be their father.
Wonder Woman and IT made a huge impression at the box office this year, but both failed to overtake 2017’s biggest hit: Beauty and the Beast. Released back in March, Disney’s blockbuster reimagining of its animated classic is still the highest-grossing film of the year, and as we wade into the prestigious waters of awards season, the studio is making sure that voters don’t forget about it.
