We’ve known since last year that Netflix was making a live-action film adaptation of BRZRKR, the comic book series Keanu Reeves co-wrote with Matt Kindt (Folklords, Bang!). We also knew that Reeves was interested in playing the lead character, a half-god who is compelled to commit violence over the centuries. What we didn’t know until recently, however, is that Reeves is at least a little bit interested in directing the production.
The Dune: The Sisterhood series is moving forward at HBO Max! The show that centers around the origin of the Bene Gesserit already had writer and co-showrunner Diane Ademu-John attached (with Alison Schapker as the other showrunner), and now also has two actors lined up for leading roles.
If you’ve seen Matt Reeves’ The Batman (pictured above), you know that Barry Keoghan makes an appearance as an inmate in Arkham who will clearly become the Joker. Keoghan, however, originally wanted to play another character in Reeves’ Batverse, and sent the director an unsolicited audition tape reflecting that.
For the first time ever, the 2002 feature Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla will grace theater screens in the United States for one day.
We’ve finally got a full blown trailer for Netflix’s Cabinet of Curiosities, an anthology series created and curated by Guillermo del Toro that looks suitably scary—no surprise given that other scary talent such as Babadook director Jennifer Kent and Hannibal director Vincenzo Natali are involved in creating eight terrifying tales.
Robert Eggers, the writer-director behind The Witch, The Lighthouse and The Northman, has always wanted to do a movie about that blood-sucking creature of the night, (The?) Nosferatu, a.k.a. Dracula. While previous attempts have failed, it looks like his dream project is moving forward once again.
John Carpenter, the mind behind the characters from the Halloween franchise and The Thing (ed. note: not to mention my personal fave, The Fog), will add movie marathon host to his list of titles. The filmmaker and composer will be guiding us through Shout! Factory TV’s Masters of Monsters weekend in November, where he’ll share his love of all things Godzilla.
The next installment in the Planet of the Ape movies is coming at us, and Freya Allan, who plays Ciri on Netflix’s The Witcher, is on board in the leading non-ape (a.k.a. human) role.
We’re only a few weeks away from The Winchesters, the Supernatural prequel about Sam and Dean’s parents, premiering on The CW. For those of us well-versed in the original show, it might seem that the past has already been addressed in the original. That’s not the case, says Jensen Ackles, producer on The Winchesters who also played Dean on the mothership series.
We’ve gotten surprisingly little so far on the Netflix show Wednesday, a series based on the iconic Addams Family member. Today, however, we’ve been blessed with a video that features Gwendoline Christie as Larissa Weems, the principal of Nevermore Academy, Wednesday’s rather ghoulish school.
It’s almost spooky season (or it’s been spooky season for two weeks, if you happen to live in my house), which means that it’s The Nightmare Before Christmas season as well. The 1993 stop-motion animation movie co-written by Tim Burton and directed by Henry Selick is a classic, and in our current times of sequels, revivals and reboots, one can’t but wonder if the creators have ever thought about revisiting that world.
The Babylon 5 reboot at The CW managed to survive the many rounds of cuts the network made in the lead up to its eventual sale. According to creator J. Michael Straczynski, however, the fate of the show is still uncertain, and he wants fans to express their support for the show on the Interweb so The CW’s new owners as well as Warner Bros. TV know there’s an audience for the sci-fi show.
We’ve got some sad news for those hoping for another film in The Shining world. When Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, came out in 2019, there was already buzz that Flanagan would make another Shining film. Flanagan recently provided an update, however, and it appears that the project is no more.
