THE MULE---trailer released for the movie starring Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper and Laurence Fishburne.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbXXKs0Td4Y



THE MANDALORIAN---Jon Favreau posted details of the live-action STAR WARS tv series, “After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
The series premieres on the Disney streaming service in late 2019.

HOBBS AND SHAW---Dwayne Johnson posted a photo of himself and Jason Statham in the FAST AND FURIOUS spinoff movie.

Image


JAWS---Richard Dreyfuss wants the classic Steven Spielberg movie to be rereleased with a CGI shark to replace the often-lampooned mechanical shark, "Bruce", “I think they should do it, it would be huge and it would open up the film to younger people. Is that blasphemy? No, no, I don’t think so. The technology now could make the shark look as good as the rest of the movie.”

Image



JAMES BOND---Hollywood agent Michael Ovitz, in his memoir, WHO IS MICHAEL OVITZ?, said he met with client Michael Jackson in a restaurant where Jackson said he wanted to play James Bond, "As he talked, his hat fell into the guacamole in front of him, and he picked it out and put it back on - unfortunately, with a blob of guacamole attached, which began to slide down the brim. (Fellow former agent) Ron Meyer tapped my leg to draw my attention to it, and we all watched in horrified fascination as it slid lower and lower while Michael was pitching us hard on how he was America's next action hero.
Then the blob fell off, and Ron totally lost it. I cracked up, too, and Michael stalked out."
Ovitz added, "I went and found him and explained for fifteen minutes that we hadn't been laughing at him, but at the incident...Finally, Michael's face cleared. 'Okay, Ovitz. Okay,' he said. 'But I want to play James Bond.' I am proud to report I didn't laugh, this time."
Ovitz convinced 007 wasn't the right role for him, "You're thinly built, you're too sensitive, you won't be credible as a block of stone. You'd be great at it, of course, but it'd be bad for you."

I know we're all upset over the loss of Carl and equally upset over what's going to happen with Rick. But we all still love Michonne, Carol and all the other characters. Negan's still around. There's a lot of great stuff coming. Those changes, while they bring us further from the comic, aren't going to limit us from adapting stories from the comic. You're still getting the Whisperers this season, and it's spectacular. There are some creepy, intense moments coming from the comic. There's a lot to be excited about."

MONDAY, OCTOBER 8

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY---trailer released for Season 2.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6eoD9rQHL4&t=6s



LITTLE DRUMMER GIRL---trailer released for the BBC/AMC miniseries.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GZZ0oXsuQQ



BARBIE---Margot Robbie is in talks to star in the Warner Bros./Mattel movie based on the Mattel doll.

Image



JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3---new photo released of John Wick on horseback. Director Chad Stahelski commented on the sequel, “Horses, dogs, cats, a raven, a bunch of pigeons, a motorcycle chase, car chase, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, shotguns, and ninjas.”

Image


DOCTOR WHO---the premiere which starred Jodie Whitaker as the first female Doctor Who drew 8.2 million viewers. The Peter Capaldi premiere had 6.8 million viewers, and the Matt Smith premiere drew 8 million viewers.

JAMES BOND---producer Barbara Broccoli commented on the possibility of a female James Bond, “Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male. And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”
She added, “[People] reference those early movies. It was written in the 50s, so there’s certain things in [Bond’s] DNA that are probably not gonna change. But look at the way the world has changed. And I think Bond has come through and transformed with the times. I’ve tried to do my part, and I think particularly with the Daniel [Craig] films, they’ve become much more current in terms of the way women are viewed.”

STAR TREK---Wil Wheaton commented on if he would like to return as Wesley Crusher for the untitled Jean-Luc Picard STAR TREK series starring Patrick Stewart, “I think it is very unlikely they will ask me to participate in it. I mean, I think it is just extraordinarily unlikely that will happen. If they did, I would say ‘yes,’ of course. I think all of us would say ‘yes.’ I think all of us if we were given the opportunity to put on the spacesuits again and go work together and bring those characters back, as they would be thirty years later, we would all say ‘yes.’ And I don’t think it’s because we want the work. I don’t think it’s because we need the money. I don’t think it’s because we don’t have other things to do. It’s because we love each other so much and an opportunity, even for a day, to return emotionally to some of the best times of our lives, I think that we would jump at that opportunity.”

THE WALKING DEAD---Season 9 cameos include Scott Wilson (who just died), Sonequa Martin-Green and Jon Bernthal.

GEORGE ROMERO---the widow of George Romero, Suzanne Desroher-Romero, said the horror writer had about 40-50 unfinished screenplays before his death, “George was a prolific writer. He loved to write, and we have 40, 50 scripts that he’s written, and a lot of it is very good. He had a lot to say, and he still does, because I’m gonna make sure that he does. It’s my mission.”
She added that he also left an unfinished novel, ROAD OF THE DEAD, and an unfinished 1973 movie, “We’re gonna restore it, and we’re gonna show it to Romero cinephiles. It’s a scary movie, but it’s not a horror movie, and it’s about ageism. Anyway, he has a cameo in it, and it’ll be fun. And we’ll show the movie, or get it distributed. It’ll be a project that the foundation’s gonna do. I think it’s the first project we’re gonna do actually.”

RAISED BY WOLVES---Ridley Scott is the director/producer of this TNT sci fi series underway in which wolves raise a colony of human children on a mysterious planet which leads to turmoil.

THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN---Peter Jackson commented on the status of the sequel, “I’m intending to [make it]. I’ve got gotta get the script written, but I’m certainly hoping to get another Tintin film, one which I’ve directed. This one, Steven [Spielberg] would produce. It’s within the next year or two, I would hope. I mean, there’s nothing happening this very second, but it does literally need me to sit down and develop a script for it. So probably in the new year, I’ll try to do that.”

THE LOUDEST VOICE IN THE ROOM---Naomi Watts will play Gretchen Carlson, who was the first woman to claim sexual harassment by Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News, in the Showtime eight-part miniseries.

RIVERDALE---Gina Gershon will play Jughead's mother, who owns a salvage yard/chop shop which is also a Serpent compound.

In THUNDERBALL, Rik Van Nutter played CIA agent Felix Leiter. Van Nutter was married to Swedish actress Anita Ekberg (LA DOLCE VITA). In FROM RUSSIA FROM LOVE, a Russian assassin emerges from Ekberg's mouth on a large movie poster of CALL ME BWANA which was produced by the James Bond producers of Harry Saltzman and Cubby Broccoli.
