Recently, we posted an article about how director Ridley Scott wanted to make a sequel to Gladiator. Which, Ok. Fine. But, the catch was, he wanted to bring back Maximus… who died at the end of the first movie. That sequel is probably never gonna happen, but Scott recently explained in an interview with ME. Movies how it would have worked, how he would have brought Maximus back, saying:

“I can bring him back. I know how to bring him back. I use the [body] of a dying warrior as a portal that could bring somebody back.” Continue reading

M. Night Shyamalan Announces Unbreakable and Split Sequel Glass for 2019

Earlier this year, director M. Night Shyamalan returned to theaters with his brand new film Split, which offered a different type of twist ending for fans, as a post-credit scene revealed the film takes place in the same universe as his 2000 feature film, Unbreakable. Now, Shyamalan has taken to Twitter to announce that his next project will be a film colliding the two films and will be titled Glass.

“Finished the new script,” the writer-director wrote online. “It’s taken 17 years but I can finally answer the #1 question I get, ‘Are you making a f#&@ing sequel to Unbreakable or what?’ My new film is the sequel to Unbreakable AND Split. It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film.”

In an interview with Yahoo Movies, the actor had this to say:

“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it, whatever they offered. So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.”

Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg to Write and Direct Robert Kirkman’s Invincible

Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg to Write and Direct Robert Kirkman's Invincible

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the filmmaking team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will write, direct, and produce a big-screen adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s Invincible for Universal Pictures.

“For nearly a decade I’ve had to endure the ‘what about Invincible?’ question as fans have watched The Walking Dead grow into the multi-media monstrosity it has become over the years,” The Walking Dead creator said. “The answer was always that we were waiting for the right team to partner with. That team has arrived! The esteemed misters Goldberg and Rogen have proven themselves to be top-notch directors with a keen collective eye for stunning visuals after slumming it by writing hit after juggernaut hit.”

Kirkman added, Invincible’s surprising, edgy, shocking, and oftentimes blood-soaked story couldn’t be in more capable hands. With the team of Rogen, Goldberg and Universal, I’m very confident this will be another superhero movie, in a long line of superhero movies that continues to prove that it’s a viable, thrilling genre that will keep people coming to the cinema for years to come.”

“No matter how much damage it causes our bodies, minds, and our most intimate relationships with those we love, we will not rest until Invincible is as great a movie as it deserves to be,” Rogen and Goldberg said.

In the series, which has been running continuously since 2003 thanks to Kirkman and artists Ryan Ottley & Cory Walker, Mark Grayson was a normal high school senior with a normal part-time job and otherwise normal life, except his father Nolan is the superhero Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on the planet. At the age of 17, Mark begins to display superpowers, which come from his father being a member of the Viltrumite race, who, according to Nolan, pioneer the galaxy on a mission of benevolence and enlightenment.

Rogen and Goldberg made their feature debut with 2013’s This is the End and went on to direct The Interview. No strangers to comic book adaptations either, the pair have executive produced AMC’s Preacher, based on the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon series, and are also developing an adaptation of The Boys for Cinemax.

The Green Ranger is being teased for the Power Rangers sequel. Are you excited for the Green Ranger?

The Green Ranger is already being teased for the Power Rangers sequel

Although Lionsgate‘s new big screen take on Saban‘s Power Rangers won’t hit theaters until tomorrow, the studio is already teasing a familiar face for the tentative sequel. The below Green Ranger motion poster was just posted to the franchise’s official feed!

On the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, the Green Ranger was the alternate identity of Tommy Oliver (played by Jason David Frank). Throughout the franchise’s run, Oliver has returned as a number of different rangers, including the White Ranger, the Red Ranger and, most recently, the Black Ranger. While Oliver doesn’t appear in the new film, Green Ranger fans would be wise to stay in their seats during the new movie’s end credits.

 

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

The Power Rangers cast includes Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect, The Hunger Games) as the villainous Rita Repulsa, Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) voicing Alpha 5 and Bryan Cranston (Breaking BadGodzilla) as Zordon.

Directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), Power Rangers is written by John Gatins (Kong: Skull Island, Real Steel), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor), and Max Landis (Chronicle). Producers are Power Rangers creator Haim Saban, Brian Casentini, Wyck Godfrey, and Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars, The Maze Runner franchise).

Ivan Reitman Says He’s Still Developing Multiple GHOSTBUSTERS Films for Sony Pictures

After director Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot crashed and burned, I wasn’t sure if Sony Pictures would still want to move forward with their plans of building up the franchise. According to original Ghostbusters director and producer Ivan Reitman, It doesn’t sound like they’ve given up on it yet. In fact, Reitman is actively developing these films for the studio.

 

When talking to io9 about a Ghostbusters VR experience they are developing, Reitman opened up about his thoughts on the reboot and where the franchise is headed:

“We certainly would’ve loved to have a larger hit. But considering the last film was almost 30 years ago, it really did extremely well. I think the film cost too much, frankly, and that’s the real issue. I personally had other points of view in terms of where the film should go and it was kind of a continuous conversation with Paul [Feig] about that. But Paul was the filmmaker on this one and he’s a very talented director. I wanted to give him enough room to do the film he thought it should be.”

As far as what they’ve got cooking up for future films in the franchise, Reitman immediately brought up the animated film that was announced back in 2015:

“We jumped into an animated film [after the last movie] and we are developing live-action films. I want to bring all these stories together as a universe that makes sense within itself. Part of my job right now is to do that.”

There’s no information on these new Ghostbusters films or when they will come out, but the producer hopes that the animated movie will be released in 2019-2020. He said:

“It depends on on how fast we can get it all together. It’s hard to make an animated film.”

I actually don’t mind the fact that Reitman and Sony are looking to develop more Ghostbusters movies. I just hope that next time around that actually make a great movie. Hell, they can even bring back all the female Ghostbusters if they want, I just hope they have a better sense of story and character development next time around. And of course, cut back on the silly slapstick comedy antics.

I believe that with the right talent involved there could be another great Ghostbusters film one day. The big question is, will they get the right talent on board when they decide to move forward with these projects.
