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.

Mark Hamill Talks About Recasting Leia in EPISODE IX

2016 was a rough year for geeks. So many pop culture icons were lost that year. For Star Wars fans, the biggest loss came in December 2016 with the passing of Carrie Fisher. Fisher was our princess, our hero, and our general. Her passing came after filming for The Last Jedi finished but before its premiere. This has left many wondering what will happen with Leia in Episode IX. We were all lead to believe that she would play an integral role in the film, but now that will most likely be different.

J.J. Abrams has a tough task ahead of him in writing Episode IX with Chris Terrio and having to figure out what to do with Leia. Kathleen Kennedy has already said that they will not digitally reconstruct Leia similar to Tarkin in Rogue One. This leaves an off-screen death with an explanation in the opening crawl or recasting Leia. Neither of those options will be very satisfying for fans.

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.”

Well, thanks to Mark Hamill, Star Wars fans can now continue to ponder what the Star Wars saga would have been had George Lucas‘ ideas been used. In a recent interview with IGN, Hamill revealed that Lucas didn’t plan on killing off Luke Skywalker until Star Wars: Episode IX… after he trained Leia!

Mark Hamill is now talking about another thing that he didn’t like about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He’s already voiced several complaints about how he didn’t necessarily like how Luke Skywalker was handled. His latest complaint deals with the scene where we see Luke milk and alien creature for blue milk to drink, and this is actually valid.

While the scene did offer a laugh, the time wasted on it would have been better served with seeing Luke mourning the loss of his friend Han Solo, which is a scene that was cut. While talking to IGN about the deleted scenes of the film Hamill had this to say:a

Jordan starring in the film. and that it would possibly focus on a young version of Morpheus. One thing that screenwriter Zak Penn (Ready Player One) previously made clear is that this is not a reboot. This will be more of a revival.

During an interview with ScreenRant, Zak Penn offered an update on The Matrix, which is a passion project for him. He also once again explains that the movie will not be a reboot and teases the possibility of an expanded universe.

“I’ve been working on Matrix right now. Which is in…a phase right now. That’s a franchise I desperately want to see brought back and, I can’t go in to too much detail, but I’ve been harassing Warner Bros. for years to try to get it going again so that’s one thing I’m working on and I’ve been working on a bunch of other things too.”

J.J. Abrams Talks About CLOVERFIELD 4 and Says it’s a “Crazy Movie”

J.J. Abrams seems to be enjoying his Cloverfield franchise and the mystery that surrounds it. The Cloverfield Paradox made a surprising debut on Netflix after the Super Bowl. The movie was met with a lot of mixed reviews. Some people downright hated it. A lot of people wondered what the fate of the fourth Cloverfield film would be after Paradox was released.

That film is tentatively titled Overlord and it’s already done shooting. As of right now, the plan is to release it on the big screen. Abrams recently spoke with Digital Spy about the project, but first explains that it was fun to release The Cloverfield Paradox without anyone knowing:

“It didn’t really feel like it was any fun to release [The Cloverfield Paradox] with everybody knowing that it was coming. Could we possibly do this and keep it a secret and release the thing in the way we did? That felt to me like that’s the spirit of these movies, that’s the spirit of the series. So to talk about what the next one is and what’s going to happen sort of feels counter intuitive.”
