The Predator reshot nearly its entire third act

20th Century Fox and filmmaker Shane Black are working hard to deliver The Predator in fighting shape, delaying its release from February to September in order to carry out reportedly extensive reshoots. Now co-star Keegan-Michael Key has told CinemaBlend just how extensive those reshoots are: The filmmakers behind The Predator reshot nearly the entire third act of the film!

“We just finished [reshoots] last week, and just about three-quarters of the third act was rewritten,” confirms Key. “And Shane Black is… he’s just a consummate professional, and a consummate writer. He’s a wordsmith! It was a really, really exhilarating experience, and I think that he’s still one of our most vibrant writers of cinema.”

KICK-ASS 2 Director Jeff Wadlow Shares Details on His MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Script

 Art By Gerald Parel

Back in 2014 Kick-Ass 2 director, Jeff Wadlow was attached to write and direct the new feature film adaptation of Masters of the Universe. Things ended up not working out, but in a recent interview with Collider, the director opened up and shared some details on what he was looking to do.

One thing that he says that I found interesting is that he was trying to do what Marvel did with Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok, before Marvel did it. He wanted to bring that kind of irreverent, playful, and fun approach, but with Masters of the Universe. But Sony Pictures wanted more of a serious straightforward fantasy tone. He explains:

“I had a really irreverent take on Masters of the Universe, and the studio, at the time, was very focused on a Game of Thrones/Lord of the Rings take. I love He-Man. I still have all my original figures from the ‘80s. That’s how I got the job. I brought them in and put them on the table and was like, ‘This is why I’m a director!’ I wrote a scene where Prince Adam meets Ram Man and says to him, ‘So, they call you Ram Man, huh?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah.’ And he goes, ‘Do you like that name?’ And Ram Man goes, ‘I’m owning it.’ So, there was an irreverence to it, but at the time, that just didn’t gel with what they wanted to do.

This Video Points Out Every Easter Egg, Reference and Cameo in READY PLAYER ONE

I’ve seen Ready Player One twice so far and I know that I haven’t seen everything that is packed into that movie. I just watched this video from Mr. Sunday Movies and he lists every Easter egg, reference, and cameo that he noticed in the film and I didn’t see half of the stuff that he mentions on my first two viewings! Chances are I won’t notice all of them until I own the film and am able to pause it and take the time to scan it. If you’re a fan of the movie, you’ll want to check this video out. After you watch it let us know if you were actually able to catch everything that is pointed out in the video. There are spoilers in this video, though, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, I suggest that you don’t watch it.

Out of everything that he mentions, there is one character he missed and that character is Spawn and he also missed the Glaive from Krull.

THE PURGE Series Moves Forward With a Director

The USA Network has hired a director to helm the first episode of the series adaptation of The Purge film franchise. That director is Anthony Hemingway who has worked on some great series in his career that include The People v. O. J. Simpson, Battlestar Galactica, American Horror Story, Orange Is the New Black, Empire, Shameless and the true crime series Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.

All of the Purge films have focused on the one day a year when all crime is legal, and murderous chaos fills every American city. This series will revolve around what happens the rest of the year when life is normal for everyone. When talking about the series, Blumhouse CEO and producer Jason Blum said viewers of the show will see just how the “awful law” affects America during the other 364 days a year.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this crazy law does end up affecting the lives of people throughout the year.

The creator of the film franchise, James DeMonaco, will write the series adaptation and it will star East Los High’s Gabriel Chavarria and Six’s Jessica Garza.

The first season will consist of 10-episodes and it will air on USA and SyFy. Will you be tuning in to watch it?

Director Josh Boone has been developing an adaptation of Stephen King‘s epic post-apocalyptic novel The Stand since 2014. He’s been developing it for the big screen and at one point we heard that it could have been adapted into four films. Well, according to The Tracking Board he is now developing it as a 10-hour limited series at CBS.

Emily Blunt Delayed Edge of Tomorrow Sequel for Poppins

Emily Blunt Delayed Edge of Tomorrow Sequel for Poppins

Director Doug Liman and star Tom Cruise have been teasing an Edge of Tomorrow sequel, titled Live Die Repeat and Repeat, for some time. Now the film’s other star, Emily Blunt, has revealed to IndieWire that she could have made the sequel happen last year but her commitment to Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns made her availability impossible.

“It’s a lot for all the stars to align for everyone to be free at the same time and available to do it at the same time,” Blunt said. “They asked me to do [it] two months before I started ‘Mary Poppins.’ Tom was like, ‘Can you go this autumn?’ and I was like, ‘No, I can’t go, I’m playing Mary Poppins for like a year, dude! I can’t do Edge of Tomorrow.’ Doug Liman has got an awesome idea and he’s excited and they just need to write it. There has been a script, but now I gather there’s another one in the works.”
