Will We Get A "Sinister 3" Anytime Soon?

31 July 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Scott Derrickson's 2012 horror chiller "Sinister" scored strong reviews and solid box-office, along with introducing an iconic new monster in the form of the entity Bughuul. With the sequel to that film set to open in a few weeks, questions have turned towards how much of an actual franchise they can make out of the series and whether a third film is on the cards.

In an interview conducted on the set by Cinema Blend, Derrickson was asked whether or not he envisioned this franchise as a trilogy. He says:

"Sure, yeah, I'd like there to be ten of them, but it really depends on how this turns out and how it does. The reason the script took so long was because both [co-screenwriter C.Robert] Cargill and I have seen so many horror franchises – you know, we're really familiar with how they tend to work and what the bad tendencies are.

Is Sinister 3 Going To Happen? Here's What The Writer Says

30 July 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Sinster creeped its way to theaters in 2012, it introduced the world to the horrifying entity Bughuul . or Mr. Boogie, if you.re not into the whole brevity thing. And when Sinister 2 comes out in a few weeks, we.ll get to know the ghastly being a little better. But, assuming he doesn.t get banished into the ethers forevermore at the end of that flick, will we get to see him terrorizing more people in a third Sinister film? According to the current creative team, the answer is possibly, but not that likely.  For a set visit during the production of Sinister 2, screenwriter Scott Derrickson (who directed the first film) and the sequel.s helmer Ciraran Foy joined cast members Shannyn Sossamon and James Ransone for a roundtable interview with me and other journalists, and someone broached the subject of whether or not Derrickson envisioned this franchise »

The Marvel Character Rachel McAdams May Play In Doctor Strange

28 July 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This past weekend, Rachel McAdams confirmed that she has indeed had talks with Marvel Studios about a potential role in Scott Derrickson's upcoming Doctor Strange... but what has remained a mystery has been the exact part for which she has been rumored. One possibility that we threw out was Clea, the niece and close disciple of Dormammu and a romantic interest for Doctor Strange, but now there is some evidence that could suggest that she is instead playing Linda Carter - a character in Marvel Comics who also goes by the moniker Night Nurse. This theory has been spurred on by recent comments made by Daredevil Season 1 showrunner Stephen DeKnight. While on stage at a Television Critics Association presentation this afternoon, DeKnight was asked about why Rosario Dawson's character - who basically serves as Night Nurse on the Netflix series - is not named Linda Carter, but instead Claire Temple. »

27 July 2015 4:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It looks like Marvel wants Rachel McAdams for “Doctor Strange.” Sources tell Variety that McAdams is the choice to land the female lead opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” although it’s currently unknown if an offer is in hand.

Heroic Hollywood first reported the news earlier this month, and McAdams confirmed to the L.A. Times that she was talking to the studio about the role. “It’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all,” she said.

Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor are also on board to co-star. Scott Derrickson is directing the comicbook movie.

Cumberbatch will play Stephen Vincent Strange, a former neurosurgeon who becomes the next Sorcerer Supreme and primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Marvel Comics vets Stan Lee and Steve Ditko co-created the character in 1963.

27 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rachel McAdams could be the next major star to join the cast of Marvel's Doctor Strange.

The actress recently hinted that she is in discussions to board director Scott Derrickson's entry into the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"It's still super-early days, and I don't know where that's gonna go, if it's gonna go anywhere at all," she hinted to the La Times.

McAdams also insisted that she wouldn't consider joining the Marvel universe just to follow in the footsteps of top Hollywood stars like Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Natalie Portman.

"I try to shut out ideas about why you should do things," she explained. "Trying to do good architecture and really designing a career?

"There's some attention to be paid to that, but I don't think it's everything."

If she were to join the cast of Doctor Strange, McAdams would be starring opposite Benedict Cumberbatch »

Rachel McAdams Confirms Doctor Strange Talks With Marvel

26 July 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Peyton Reed.s Ant-Man has only been out in theaters for two weekends now, but it already feels like such old news.

'Doctor Strange' May Have Tilda Swinton's Ancient One Be a Man

25 July 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange just got a whole lot stranger. Just when fans were becoming acclimated to the fact that iconic Marvel character The Ancient One was getting gender swapped, with Tilda Swinton taking on the role, it has come to light that she might be pulling a Victor Victoria type ruse. At this point, she really doesn't know what Marvel has planned. And she could end up playing the character as a man.

While Marvel has explored group dynamics, otherworldly superpowers and science fiction, it will move into the realm of magic and mysticism with Doctor Strange. And it's something audiences haven't seen in this landscape before. After a long and grueling casting process that saw quite a few actors come and go, Benedict Cumberbatch finally accepted the title role as Dr. Stephen Strange, a neurosurgeon who becomes a Sorcerer after injuring his hands in a car accident. The movie is being directed by Scott Derrickson, »

Tilda Swinton unsure if she’ll play the Ancient One in Doctor Strange as a man or a woman

25 July 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May it was revealed that Marvel Studios had tapped Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer, Trainwreck) to play the role of Dr. Stephen Strange’s mentor The Ancient One in the Phase Three release Doctor Strange.

Naturally, this led everyone to assume that Marvel had decided to gender swap the character – who in the comic book universe is an elderly Tibetan male – but it seems that may not be the case after all.

According to The Guardian, Swinton has said that “she doesn’t yet know if she will play the part as a man or a woman”. However, it should be noted that the article doesn’t contain any direct quotes from the actress, so we’ll have to see how this one plays out…

3 Big Changes Sinister 2 Makes From The First Film

24 July 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In Sinister, the world was introduced to the malicious supernatural entity Bughuul through a series of hard-to-watch "kill tapes," and he’s coming back for more murderous mayhem in the sequel Sinister 2, which still doesn’t have the subtitle Electric Bughuul-oo. Last year, I visited the set of Sinister 2 and took part in a roundtable interview with director Ciaran Foy, writer (and the first film’s director) Scott Derrickson, and stars James Ransone and Shannyn Sossamon. They were all understandably reluctant to reveal too much, but they let just enough info out to make us excited.  Here are three big changes we’re going to get out of Sinister 2 when it hits theaters on Friday, August 21. And yes, it’s more than just "Ethan Hawke isn’t in this one." Although that is certainly true here.  We’ »

Sinister 2 Clips Tease the Return of Bughuul

24 July 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Next month, moviegoers will become reacquainted with Bughuul, the demonic entity that first haunted the screen in 2012. As we inch closer to Bughuul's return, two new clips tease the horrific home videos and visions to come in Sinister 2.

Timed with this Sunday's Parents' Day and rebranded as (Don’t Kill Your) Parents Day from the Sinister 2 standpoint, these clips offer a ghoulish glimpse into the upcoming sequel that hits theaters on August 28th.

"The sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit horror movie. In the aftermath of the shocking events in “Sinister,” a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of “Wayward Pines”) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life brothers Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Bughuul continues to spread with frightening intensity."

Sinister 2 was directed by Ciaran Foy (Citadel) from a screenplay co-written by original Sinister writers Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill. »

Sinister 2 Set Visit Interviews with Scott Derrickson, Ciaran Foy, Shannyn Sossamon, and James Ransone

24 July 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last August, I was invited to the set of Sinister 2, where it was instantly apparent that Bughuul was leaving his mark on a new family. While the snuff film-obsessed Bughuul was nowhere to be found, we were greeted by quite a few child actors who were playing his little killers in the new movie.

The movie takes place in a new house and with a new family, but "Deputy So and So" returns and appears to be on the trail of the pagan god who caused so much suffering in the first movie. The scenes I watched mainly revolved around Shannyn Sossamon and twin brothers Robert and Dartanian Sloan, who teased something strange going on at a church. We also got to see a handful child actors who were made up as Bughuul's killer children and were haunting (or helping?) the new family.
