Five years ago this summer, the Harry Potter movie franchise came to a close with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, but most fans knew that wouldn't be the last we'd see of this lucrative property. Sure enough, Warner Bros. announced in 2014 that a new trilogy will begin with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling. The story will be set 70 years before Harry Potter first set foot in Hogwarts, although fans are still wondering if there will be any connections to Harry Potter and his magical classmates. As it turns out, one of the original Harry Potter cast members is quite desperate to reprise his role in this prequel.

Moonwalkers stars Rupert Grint and Rob Sheehan had a blast on the set of the British comedy with American actor Ron Perlman.

Rupert Grint stars in the upcoming film Moonwalkers as Jonny, a good-hearted yet blundering band manager, who - with the help of his drugged-up roommate Leon (Robert Sheehan) and an unbalanced CIA agent (Ron Perlman) - attempts to pull off the coup of a lifetime: faking the 1969 moon landing. While the film is a complete 180-degree turn from Grint's most famous role as the faithful and funny Harry Potter sidekick, Ron Weasley, his character does possess a few of Ron's characteristics: he's well-meaning, shows spontaneous moments of bravery, and sees things through until the end. We spoke to Grint about what it was like to shoot the film, which is set in the '60s and based in London, and how he felt about working with the "terrifying, intimidating" Perlman. Of course, we couldn't not squeeze in a few Harry Potter-related questions: you'll have to keep reading to see »

“Moonwalkers” takes a brilliant idea and runs it to the ground thanks to a confused and illogical screenplay, an atonal execution, and a bizarre addiction to Tarantino-level gleeful ultra-violence awkwardly crammed into what was obviously supposed to be a biting satire. It’s as if the filmmakers decided that it wasn’t enough to ape the satirical touches of “Dr. Strangelove,” so for some reason they thought inserting the over the top violence of “Punisher: War Zone” would give their meagerly-budgeted feature the fresh new angle it needed. Don’t get me wrong, both of those films are great in their own completely different terms, but together they form quite a repulsive cocktail.

Here's what the director had to say through his Twitter page yesterday.

The last update we got on Pacific Rim 2 was from Guillermo del Toro himself, who revealed on his Twitter page in October that he had turned in the script and budget for the sequel. The director's comments that he'll be involved "one way or another" could be a »

After the gothic horror-thriller Crimson Peak hit theaters last year, director Guillermo del Toro's next project was originally believed to be Pacific Rim 2. The filmmaker was set to start production in Toronto last fall, but reports surfaced in September that the sequel start date was being pushed to sometime in 2016. Shortly thereafter, rumors sprung up that Legendary and Universal Pictures were cancelling the project altogether. The director later clarified that the planned release date of August 4, 2017 had been scrapped, although the project was still happening. Today we have a new report from The Hollywood Reporter that claims the sequel has now been delayed indefinitely.
We reported earlier today that Guillermo del Toro is in talks to develop and direct 20th Century Fox's long-gestating remake of Fantastic Voyage, which came about after Legendary and Universal shelved Pacific Rim 2. The last we heard about the sequel was that Guillermo del Toro »
