The LEGO Batman Movie isn’t the only new animated LEGO movie in the works. Lest you forget, Warner Bros. is also developing a film based on the popular Ninjago franchise, and they’ve recently begun assembling a great lineup of voice talent. Justin Theroux and Olivia Munn are the latest names to join the The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which already boasts an excellent roster.
Margot Robbie’s plan for world domination is going pretty well: Her upcoming projects include an A.A. Milne biopic with Domhnall Gleeson, a Harley Quinn Suicide Squad spinoff and — best of all — a Tanya Harding biopic (which she’s also producing). For her next trick, Robbie is heading to the circus to perform death-defying acts in the role of famous real-life trapeze artist Lillian Leitzel.
Bad Boys 3 is finally gearing up to head into production with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence returning to reprise their roles from Michael Bay’s previous films. But with filming not set to begin until early next year, the release date for the long-developing sequel has been delayed yet again, this time to 2018. On the slightly more positive side of things, the sequel has a new title, and it’s one that should earn the approval of Bad Boys fans.
How many times will you be afforded the opportunity, in this lifetime, to look at Brad Pitt and say, “In your dreams”? Probably never to his face, unless your name is David Fincher, and your old pal Brad Pitt comes to ask you for a favor, and that favor happens to be directing a sequel to World War Z. Can you even imagine David Fincher directing a sequel to someone else’s movie — especially one that was just OK?
The upcoming Wolverine sequel has long been hyped as Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the iconic hero, but he may not be the only one preparing to say farewell to the X-Men franchise. In a new interview, Patrick Stewart reveals that Wolverine 3 (or 2, if you’re ignoring X-Men Origins) may very well feature his last appearance as Professor Charles Xavier.
Just last month, Sony exec Rory Bruer said he had “no doubt” that the studio would move forward with a sequel to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. That was then, this is now: The all-female reimagining of the 1984 classic has made $180 million at the global box office, which isn’t enough to justify Sony’s production and marketing costs…or a sequel, for that matter.
Three years after it was first announced, The Silver Chair is finally making its way to the big screen. Sony and TriStar will back the long-developing project, which is the next chapter in the Chronicles of Narnia series. As was the case a few years ago, Life of Pi scribe David Magee will script the new sequel, which has yet to secure a director.
It should go without saying, but the red band trailer for Bad Santa 2 is NSFW — or for life, really, but that depends on your level of sensitivity. If there was any doubt that the sequel could be as profane and gleefully repulsive as its predecessor, the latest trailer should restore your optimism…or cynicism, as it were. Never fear, Billy Bob Thornton’s unsavory Santa has returned, and he’s just as foul as ever.
Not to be outdone by Disney, Universal is cooking up some live-action brand management of their own. In addition to their competing Little Mermaid film, the studio is developing a live-action adaptation of Curious George, based on the classic children’s book series that already inspired an animated movie in 2006. Oh, and they just landed a director, too.
Now here’s a pairing we can totally get behind: Star Wars hero Daisy Ridley and Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. This news would only be better if they were making an Edge of Tomorrow sequel instead of a post-apocalyptic YA thriller, but sci-fi is still sci-fi, and more Daisy Ridley cannot possibly be a bad thing.
Lionsgate recently announced that the final film in the Divergent series will skip theaters entirely and head straight to television, with additional plans to launch a spinoff series. Although the franchise has suffered diminishing returns at the box office, news of the Ascendant TV movie and (possible) spinoff was still a bit surprising to everyone — including Miles Teller, who seems somewhat hesitant about this whole television business.
By now you’re well-aware that Hollywood has a real problem with female directors, who are typically not given the same chances (read: jobs, budgets, et al.) as their male peers. Ditto for people of color. That makes today’s news particularly heartening, as Ava DuVernay is set to become the first woman of color to helm a $100 million dollar film — a precedent that could (and should) pave the way for studios to hand more big budget blockbusters over to women.
