Also, co-writer Jonathan Kasdan said Lando Calrissian is pansexual, "...There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee Williams’ [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality. I mean, I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it’s time, certainly, for that, and I love the fluidity – sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of… He doesn’t make any hard and fast rules. I think it’s fun. I don’t know where it will go.”

COWBOY NINJA VIKING---Dan Mazeau (WRATH OF THE TITANS) and Ryan Engle (RAMPAGE) will write the script for the Chris Pratt movie based on the comic book.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS---Andy Serkis commented on returning as Gollum for the Amazon series, "...I don't think so. And if I was anyone making those, they're obviously going to want to start fresh and create something brand new. And that's how it should be. That's what you do with great, classic pieces of work. Like [The Jungle Book]. It bears repetition, and it bears reinterpretation. And I think it needs a fresh pair of ears and eyes, and I'm sure that's the way they'll go."

SHIRLEY---Elisabeth Moss stars in this biomovie about horror author Shirley Jackson (THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE).

THE SPANISH PRINCESS---Charlotte Hope (GAME OF THRONES) stars in this Starz miniseries as Catherine of Aragon. It is the third installment to THE WHITE QUEEN and THE WHITE PRINCESS.

Eastwood will star and direct the movie with Cooper in talks to play the DEA agent.

Image



SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING 2---Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play villain Mysterio in the sequel. Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei and Zendaya are returning for the sequel.

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI---Joonas Suotamo (6' 11"), who replaced Peter Mayhew as the actor playing Chewbacca, posted a photo with his THE LORD OF THE RINGS heroes Sean Astin (5' 7"), Elijah Wood (5' 6") and Billy Boyd (5' 6").

Image


SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY---George Lucas originally wanted to introduce the young Hal Solo in REVENGE OF THE SITH. Solo was a ten year-old orphan being raised by Chewbacca, and "Solo would have actually made a key contribution to the plot, seeing that he was to discover a droid transmitting signals from Utapau, pointing the Jedi in the direction of General Grievous." Official concept art showed Solo with messy hair and tattered clothes, and he would have had one line of dialogue. Lucas decided to drop the young Solo from the movie.

CLUE---co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick talked about their reboot of the 1985 comedy movie based on the board game. Wernick said, “Don’t be surprised if CLUE is R-rated… Potentially."
Reese added, “It will have elements of [the original movie], but it’s important that we don’t try and just rehash it. We want to build on it. We want to take some of what makes it fun and funny, but then we want to do our own thing. It’s about finding that balance. Hopefully we don’t upset the CLUE-hounds because there are a lot of them, apparently. We didn’t realize this until we signed up.”
Ryan Reynolds will star in the reboot movie. The original movie starred Christopher Lloyd, Tim Curry, Eileen Brennan, Michael McKean, Madeline Kahn, Martin Mull and Lesley Ann Warren.

Image



JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3---Halle Berry and Anjelica Huston signed to co-star in the sequel. Sources said Berry will not play a villain, but no other details were released. Huston will play The Director.

Image



GODZILLA---Toho Company head Keiji Ota announced Toho will not release a sequel to GODZILLA SHIN, but instead will develop a kaiju-shared universe for Toho monsters, “After 2021, we’re thinking of a potential strategy that [releases] Godzilla movies uninterrupted at a rate of every 2 years, although there is a preference for a yearly pace as well. The future of the series and its forwarding developments are very conscious of the method of “shared universe”. Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, etc. could all share a single world view much like a Marvel movie where Iron Man and the Hulk can crossover with each other.”

ABOMINABLE---Chloe Bennet (MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.) will provide the voice for Yi in this Dreamworks Animation movie about a group of friends who journey from Shanghai to the Himalayas in order to reunite a young Yeti with its family.

TUESDAY, MAY 22

PAPILLON---trailer released for the remake movie starring Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek. Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman starred in the original 1973 movie.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqj7XOv9mC8&t=70s



SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY---SOLO's budget was $250 million which makes it the most expensive movie in franchise history. The FORCE AWAKENS is second with a $245 million budget. SOLO's original budget was $125 million, but 70% of the movie was reshot by new director Ron Howard which was a big factor in the budget increase.
An inside source commented on why Howard was brought in to replace directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, “I got a lot of overtime [under Lord and Miller], which ultimately was their downfall. The first assistant director brokers that with production. He ultimately went to the well one too many times, and Kathleen Kennedy blew up.”
The source added, “In their minds, Phil and Chris were hired to make a movie that was unexpected and would take a risk, not something that would just service the fans. They wanted it to be fresh, new, emotional, surprising and unique. These guys looked at Han as a maverick, so they wanted to make a movie about a maverick. But at every turn, when they went to take a risk, it was met with a no.”

Image



SHAZAM!---Zachary Levi released the first official photo of his costume.

Image



THE TERROR---Ridley Scott said he is in talks with AMC for Season 2 of the horror series, “It’s difficult too, because in this one, of course, they all die [laughs]. So we’ve been coming back to [AMC] with suggestions for a second season, not necessarily along the similar lines. But let’s say, this comes up in the AMC title as being almost under the heading of a bit of a horror film, OK? But I think it’s not only a horror film, but I think it’s better than that.”
Scott added, “It’s a combination of real life fear — it’s interesting that the ship is called Terror as well — real life fear and trepidation leading to terror. And that gives it the horror banner. But I think the characterizations in it are really special. So coming up with another show, almost an entirely different story is the target next. And I think we had a very good run of the ship with [AMC], so I think they’re looking for more.”

Image



ROGER AILES---Charlize Theron will play former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly in this untitled movie about the rise and fall of Fox News head Roger Ailes.

Image



THE EXPANSE---Amazon is in talks to pick up the cancelled Syfy series. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is a big fan of the series.

THE LAST AMAZON--tv series underway about the amazon queens including Antiope and Hippolyta.

SUPERGIRL---a transgender woman who was a former political speech writer will be introduced in Season 4.

TRIVIA---in FIREFOX, David Huffman played Air Force Captain Buckholz who informs ex-fighter pilot Clint Eastwood that he has been reactivated in order to steal Russia's advanced MiG-31 Firefox jet fighter. Huffman was murdered trying to apprehend a burglary suspect in San Diego in 1985.

SKYSCRAPER---new trailer released for the Dwayne Johnson disaster movie.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pIEzZVqwFs&t=36s



ZOMBIELAND---leaked information says the sequel's title is ZOMBIELAND TOO and has the original cast returning to discover a new breed of "super zombies" that are stronger, bigger and more resilient than the original movie's zombies.

Image



ANALOG---Lionsgate movie underway based on the comic book about the future where internet security has ceased to exist and couriers, known as Ledger Men, transport top secrets in briefcases handcuffed to their wrists. Chad Stahelski (JOHN WICK) is the director.

MEN IN BLACK 4---Liam Neeson is in negotiations to play the head of MIB in England. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson also star.

WATCHMEN---Damon Lindelof commented on his HBO tv series based on the comic book, “We have no desire to ‘adapt’ the twelve issues Mr. Moore and Mr. Gibbons created thirty years ago. Those issues are sacred ground and will not be retread nor recreated nor reproduced nor rebooted. They will, however, be remixed, because the bass lines in those familiar tracks are just too good and we’d be fools not to sample them.
Those original twelve issues are our Old Testament. When the New Testament came along it did not erase what came before it. Creation. The Garden of Eden. Abraham and Isaac. The Flood. It all happened. And so it will be with ‘Watchmen.’ The Comedian died. Dan and Laurie fell in love. Ozymandias saved the world and Dr. Manhattan left it just after blowing Rorschach to pieces in the bitter cold of Antarctica."
He added, "Most importantly, it must be contemporary. The Old Testament was specific to the Eighties of Reagan and Thatcher and Gorbachev. Ours needs to resonate with the frequency of Trump and May and Putin and the horse that he rides around on, shirtless. And speaking of Horsemen, The End of the World is off the table…which means the heroes and villains–as if the two are distinguishable – are playing for different stakes entirely.”

THE MITCHELLS VS. THE MACHINES---Sony Pictures Animation movie underway in which a dysfunctional family on a road trip has to battle machines during a global technology rebellion against mankind.

KRYPTON---Syfy renewed the series for Season 2.

DISENCHANTMENT---new Netflix/Matt Groening animated adult comedy set in medieval times.

UGLYDOLLS---Hulu animated series underway based on the toy line.

THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB---tv series underway based on the book series.

TRIVIA---Mary Jo Deschanel played an astronaut's wife in two movies. In THE RIGHT STUFF, she played John Glenn's wife, Annie. In 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT, she played Dave Bowman's wife, Betty.

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY---the three day domestic box office was a disappointing $84 million which was just over half of ROGUE ONE's premiere. Lucasfilm had projected the premiere would be around $150 million.
Ron Howard tweeted his comment about SOLO's underwhelming box office, "Didn’t meet projections but amounts to a new personal best. check #SoloAStarWarsStory for balanced feedback & then C it on a big screen!".Howard's "personal best" refers to THE DA VINCI CODE which premiered at $77 million.
