AQUAMAN---James Cameron, who directed a fake AQUAMAN on ENTOURAGE, commented on the DC movie that made $1.1 billion, “I think it's great fun. I never could have made that film, because it requires this kind of total dreamlike disconnection from any sense of physics or reality. People just kind of zoom around underwater, because they propel themselves mentally, I guess, I don’t know. But it’s cool! You buy it on its own terms.”

Those were all things that felt like they fit with what our company does. And it happened to be an Invisible Man story."

DUNE---Jason Momoa is in negotiations to play Duncan Idaho in the Denis Villenueve remake movie. Richard Jordan played the character in the original 1984 movie.
Also, writer Eric Roth (FORREST GUMP) commented on writing the DUNE script, “DUNE was a real challenge; Denis Villeneuve brought me on. I had done some little bits of stuff for him for ARRIVAL.
I turned in a really long draft, which I think was pretty cumbersome to make within the budget. I think the ideas were great, and I think they used most of them, but that needed a good look. I think Denis has…brought in another writer to trim it out, and get back to the book in some respects, so I think it’s exciting. The approach to it’s pretty wonderful, and it could be a beautiful movie."
He also commented on writing KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON for Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, "KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON...is one of the great stories that one could tell. I think any good writer would do this justice; it’s such a powerful piece, and it’ll be Marty Scorsese basically doing a Western. I would say it would be [filming] late next summer, he’d start [shooting], early fall. I know how much [Scorsese] loves it, and I’m just sending literally this morning the last of this iteration of the script. Then, I’m sure we’ll start rewriting again."
