TUESDAY, JULY 3

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcknCCOlH-E&t=93s



KING OF OIL---Matt Damon stars in this biomovie about Marc Rich, the billionaire commodities trader who was indicted on 65 criminal counts and did oil business with Iran, North Korea, South Africa, Libya, Yugoslavia, Cuba and the Soviet Union.

Image



STAR WARS---the chances of Christopher McQuarrie (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE-ROGUE NATION) directing a STAR WARS movie seems unlikely after he and Rian Johnson exchanged tweets with STAR WARS fans unhappy with Johnson's THE LAST JEDI. McQuarrie tweeted, “My friend, After five minutes of this, I don’t know why you’re still on Twitter. I would have loved to make a Star Wars film someday. I’m cured.”
McQuarrie was then asked if he would be interested in directing a superhero movie and he replied, “Nah, after tonight I think I’m good.” McQuarrie later added, "...And it saddens me, too. I consider myself first and foremost an entertainer. I work for the audience. Tonight I found people I could never work for.”

JAWS 2---Steven Spielberg's plans for the JAWS sequel was a prequel which focused on shark hunter Qunit's telling of the World War II sinking of the cruiser USS Indianapolis and how many of the survivors were eaten by sharks. However, Universal Pictures was not interested, "Originally, they came to him about a sequel for Jaws, and he said, 'I'll do it if it's about the Indianapolis,' and they said, 'No,' and he said, 'No.' So that's how they parted ways at that point."
The true story was made into the Nicolas Cage movie, U.S.S. INDIANAPOLIS: MEN OF COURAGE.

Image



TIMELESS---co-creator Shawn Ryan said cast contracts have expired which ends chances another network will pick up the cancelled series. However, he said there may a chance of a tv movie, "Discussions still take place between Sony Pictures TV and NBC about a possible two-hour movie to conclude the #Timeless story, but there are considerable economic obstacles that make it an uncertainty. We will update you when we know more."

WESTWORLD---co-creator Lisa Joy commented on the series ending, “We have an ending in mind; we’ve had it from the pilot. It’s very emotional, I think. I can’t tell you exactly when that ending will come…but I think for every season what we try to do is tell a chapter of the story that gives you closure and then opens a door to a new chapter…The overarching question of the series is, what will become of this new lifeform? So I feel it would be irresponsible to not have an end goal in mind.”

THINK OF A NUMBER---first movie in a movie/tv franchise based on the Dave Gurney detective novels in which Gurney comes out of retirement to track down a serial killer.

SKYWARD---Sony Pictures movie underway based on the graphic novel. Brad Peyton (SAN ANDREAS) is the director.

In reality, Aykroyd's mother, Lorraine, was a senior government secretary who worked for Gordon and gave him insight on how Aykroyd should portray him.

STAR WARS---Ahmed Best, who voiced Jar Jar Binks, said fan hatred of Jar Jar, almost led him to commit suicide, “I faced a media backlash that still affects my career today. This was the place I almost ended my life. It’s still hard to talk about. I survived and now this little guy is my gift for survival.” Earlier, Best said he, “had death threats through the internet. I had people come to me and say, ‘You destroyed my childhood’. That’s difficult for a 25-year-old to hear.”

LOST---Evangeline Lilly said she's not interested in a possible LOST reboot, “There’s a rumor every year that they are going to reboot LOST.

But for the most part, I don’t usually love them.”

GAME OF THRONES---Sophie Turner talked about the series ending, "For me - without giving anything away...I was satisfied with how unpredictable the show's ending really is. People have come up with so many fan theories about how it's going to end and who will end up where and who will end up with who. It really is so unpredictable the way that it ends up. I'm very satisfied with that and I think that the fans will be satisfied with that too."

Image



STAR WARS---director James Gunn responded to STAR WARS fan attacks on Kelly Marie Tran, Ahmed Best, who said he almost committed suicide, and other actors, "Star Wars (or any movie) may be important to you, but it doesn't belong to you. If your self-esteem depends on how good you think the current Star Wars is, or your childhood is ruined because you don't like something in a movie, GO TO THERAPY."

Image



AVENGERS 4---cinematographer Trent Opaloch's online resume included AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, AVENGERS: END GAME and others. He later changed "AVENGERS: END GAME" to "AVENGERS 4" which led to speculation END GAME is the sequel's real title.

FRIDAY, JULY 6

STAR WARS---the Boba Fett movie is reportedly on the Lucasfilm back-burner, but if it is filmed, Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) might appear in it. Daniel Keys Moran, who wrote the short story "The Last One Standing", which includes Fett's rivalry with Solo, said, "'I’ve had a guy at Disney email me a couple times over the years regarding Lucasfilm adapting “Last One Standing” into a Fett movie. Not asking permission, they own those works, just letting me know they were thinking about it. So that was kind. But after SOLO stiffed, apparently there’s some question about the Fett movie being made."'

Image



THE PREDATOR---the reshoots will add more connections to the first two movies in the franchise. The sequel focuses on Project Stargazer, the secret government project in which scientists study a captured Predator.

Image


THE WALKING DEAD---poster released for Season 9 hints at a Washington, DC setting; the mysterious helicopter that appeared throughout the series and a time jump because Rick has shorter hair and Maggie has longer hair.

HOBBS AND SHAW---Idris Elba will play the villain the FAST AND FURIOUS spinoff movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO---director Stefano Sollima said he won't return for SICARIO 3, "I’d love to watch another chapter of SICARIO, but it should be from a different director who has their own specific style. You shouldn’t have more than one film from the same director. Then it would be too much like a real franchise.”

CHILD'S PLAY---Brad Dourif said he will return for the tv series, but he is not involved with the remake movie.

GUNDAM---Legendary Pictures live-action movie underway based on the anime series.

TRIVIA---in the Ray Harryhausen sci fi movie FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, Oscar-winner Peter Finch appears uncredited as the bailiff because the original actor was ill and Finch was filming THE PUMPKIN EATER nearby.

MONDAY, JULY 9

STAR WARS: EPISODE IX---Keri Russell will reunite with her MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III director, JJ Abrams, in EPISODE IX. No information was released on her rule other than it involves extensive fight scenes.

Image



Also, on Twitter, a fan asked William Shatner, "has anyone ever brought star wars stuff for you to sign?" Shatner tweeted Carrie Fisher asked him to sign a Leia slave photo. Shatner did not reply as to if he signed the photo.

Image

Image



Also, director James Mangold, who has been mentioned with the Boba Fett movie, weighed on the clash between STAR WARS fans and directors Rian Johnson and Christopher McQuarrie, "If you feel the filmmakers are just corporate tools and powerless, then why bitch at us? In the case of Rian Johnson and Chris McQuarrie, i assure you these cats are not ‘owned’. They actually fight your battles behind the scenes. The fervor of some attacks has an evangelical ferocity.
Now, I get it cause for many folk, including me, the ‘Star Wars’ saga holds tremendous spiritual power, similar to a religious text. But we must remember to try to handle our disappointments the way Yoda might, as opposed to Darth.”


THE PREDATOR---the reshoots reportedly removed friendly Predators and hybrid creatures from the sequel. The final act involves the renegade soldiers battling a ten foot-tall Predator infused with DNA from creatures hunted by the Predators.
Also, a photo was released showing the new, sleek body armor of The Predator.

Image



FEAR THE WALKING DEAD---the poster for Season 4 does not include Madison Clark (Kim Dickens).

Image



ANT-MAN---director Peyton Reed said he wanted Rick Moranis to do a cameo in the original movie, "We actually...attempted to get a Rick Moranis cameo in the first movie - still during the period, I think, where he wasn't doing so much acting. I think he's now gonna be on the CTV Scorsese-directed thing, which I'm super psyched about. But always, still, an unchecked box for me." Reed indicated Moranis might do a cameo in the third Ant-Man movie.

JOHN WICK 3: PARABELLUM---Keanu Reeves confirmed the sequel title with PARABELLUM coming from the expression, "Si vis pacem, para bellum", which is latin for "If you want peace, prepare for war." Reeves spoke about Halle Berry in the sequel, “Each film is very different but in the same kind of world and take… John Wick is fighting for his life and thinks that Halle Berry’s character has some information for him. They have a past, and they get involved with The High Table, this kind of overlording entity (laughs).”

MR. VERTIGO---Ralph Fiennes is attached to star in the Terry Gilliam movie based on the novel.

REAL MEN WATCH BRAVO---new Bravo talk show with host Jerry O'Connell which features interviews with male celebrities.

TUESDAY, JULY 10

STAR WARS: EPISODE IX---inside sources say Billy Dee Williams is returning as Lando Calrissian in EPISODE IX.

Image



GAME OF THRONES---a source at Paint Hall Studios in Belfast said the prequel series will starting filming in October and is set 1,000 years before GAME OF THRONES.

Image



ALIEN---Terry Gilliam said he was offered the opportunity to direct an ALIEN sequel, "I got offered an ALIEN sequel because I was hot at that time, as a result of TIME BANDITS and FISHER KING, and I just don’t want to do films like that. They are factory jobs, working for a studio. My last factory job was on the Chevrolet assembly plant in Los Angeles, during my junior year of college, night shift on the line. Never again."
He added, "ALIEN is just a ghost train where something jumps out and you don’t know who’s going to die next. When I watched the first ALIEN, all I kept saying was, ‘Just kill them all and be done with it,’ because you just know that they’re all going to die along the way. In the end, Sigourney Weaver, who we’ve established is a really tough military officer, is running around in her underwear trying to find a cat. Give me a f-cking break."
Gilliam continued, "There are some great moments in it, but the shot that should’ve never been in the film is the one at the end showing the alien getting blown out of the airlock. You see the alien, and it’s just a guy in a rubber suit. Up until then, you only saw bits of the alien, and it seemed to be huge and vast and terrifying. That was so clever. It was like the shark in JAWS. I told Ridley, ‘You don’t want that shot of the alien at the end. Cut it!’"

Image


JURASSIC WORLD 3---a fan petition wants Universal Pictures to fire writer/director Colin Trevorrow and replace him with JA Bayona (JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM).

"As long time fans of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, we believe that director J. A. Bayona took an important step in the right direction with the franchise. After Fallen Kingdom, which ended up being a darker and more mature chapter than its predecessor, there would be no point in going back to Colin Trevorrow's uninspired style.
Trevorrow's firing from Star Wars: Episode IX, along with the low production value of his indie movie The Book of Henry and his communication mistakes during Fallen Kingdom's marketing campaign, is a testament to his inadequacy. He's proven himself unable to manage such a large and complex project. On the other hand, Bayona's directorial skill and sensitivity are clearly perceivable and could give us another great episode, driving the franchise towards excellence and setting up a bright future for our beloved dinosaurs.
Please, Universal, put J. A. Bayona in full control as director and writer of Jurassic World 3."


SPAWN---Jeremy Renner will play private detective Twitch Williams in the movie starring Jamie Foxx.

THE PREDATOR---Shane Black commented on one reason why the reshoots were needed, "The first time we shot the third act it was daytime. It’s all this spooky stuff but then its bright sunlight. It just didn’t work. So I said ‘Ummm, can we do this again at night?'"

SHAZAM!---Djimon Hounson (GLADIATOR) will play The Wizard in the Zachary Levi superhero movie.

68 WHISKEY---Ron Howard will direct this Paramount network comedy pilot about Army medics at a forward based in Afghanistan.

LIMITED PARTNERS---Tiffany Haddish stars in this comedy movie about two girlfriends who create a successful business but become enemies when another company wants to buy them out.

TRIVIA---Universal Pictures head Sid Sheinberg didn't like BACK TO THE FUTURE's title and sent a memo to producer Steven Spielberg suggesting the title be changed to SPACE MAN FROM PLUTO. Spielberg wisely replied in a memo thanking Sheinberg for his "joke memo" and everyone in the office "got a kick out of it". Sheinberg was embarrassed and allowed the original title to stay.

Ten feet tall and midnight black, bristling with spines, skin thickened with chitinous organic armor – the product of harvesting DNA from the deadliest creatures on every world it has hunted. The ultimate expression of Predator dominance. It is, it’s fair to say, one giant, ugly motherf–ker.”

THE WALKING DEAD---new photo released for Season 9 and new showrunner Angela Kang commented on Season 9, "There’s a fun Western vibe that has emerged. We are going into a period where a lot of the things that we’ve seen in previous seasons have broken down, so they’ve got these horses and carriages that are being drawn around instead of cars. Things are lit with oil lamps. People are using different kinds of weaponry. There’s a real grittiness to it that I think will be fun and fresh for the viewers.”
