Should the Rock be the Lynchpin of Universal’s Horror Universe?

26 June 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Universal Studios is trying to bring a lot of star power to its planned Shared Monster-verse. The latest rumor is that Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson will sign with Universal to play the Wolf Man in multiple films. Will the Rock’s star power help make the Universal Monsters Shared Continuity a success?

 Universal Studios is a little late getting on-board the shared Universe train (which is ironic since they actually created the first shared Universe in 1943 when Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man came out) and they’re trying to stack the deck with big stars to help their shared monster-verse have the same success that Disney is having with Marvel films. So far, they’ve nailed down Tom Cruise for a Mummy remake (due out June 2017) and Johnny Depp for a new Invisible Man film (due April 2018). Russell Crowe is appearing as Dr. Jekyll in The Mummy which will probably lead to a Dr. »

• Variety Zac Efron possibly joining headliner Hugh Jackman in the new Pt Barnum movie musical The Greatest Showman on Earth

Universal Studios Wicked, the movie has a release date. More on this tomorrow

• Playbill Tony Kushner writing an adaptation of West Side Story for a remake by Steven Spielberg! Since that's my favorite movie of all time I feel very weird about this. Strangely the article stays that Kushner is "currently adapting the screenplay of August Wilson's Pulitzer-winning drama Fences" which would be really bad news for the movie since it's already done filming ;)

Logan Goes on the Run in Latest Wolverine 3 Set Photos

16 June 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since production got under way on Wolverine 3 last month, we've seen a number of set photos, including a batch from last weekend with star Hugh Jackman and a young actress many believe is the mutant clone X-23. In the background of those photos, we could see a limousine that has been riddled with numerous bullet holes, which appeared to be parked outside of a hotel. Today we have even more images from the set, which give us a closer look at this limo, and reveal that Logan himself was behind the wheel, presumably trying to escape from a massive gunfight.

These photos from Just Jared were taken yesterday afternoon in New Orleans, which also give us a closer look at Hugh Jackman himself, who appears to be unscathed from the shootout. Unfortunately, these photos don't feature the unidentified young girl we saw in the previous photos, and it remains to be seen if she will eventually be confirmed as X-23. Hopefully we'll get to see more of this mystery character as production continues.

It has already been confirmed that Wolverine 3 will be R-rated, but the studio has yet to confirm an official title. Just a few days ago, a report surfaced that claimed 20th Century Fox had registered two variations of the title, Wolverine: Weapon X and just Weapon X. The studio has not confirmed what the title will be quite yet, but hopefully we'll find out more as production continues.

The Weapon X title would make sense, especially considering how it may tie in to last month's X-Men: Apocalypse. That movie featured a brief appearance from Hugh Jackman's Wolverine at the Weapon X facility at Alkali Lake, where he was unleashed and started taking out numerous soldiers. There is also a post credit scene from that movie that could very well tie into Wolverine 3, if the latest rumors are to be believed.

The post credit scene featured an unidentified man stepping over the bodies of all the men Wolverine took out at Alkali Lake. While we never see his face, this character takes a vial of blood labeled Wolverine, which many suspect will be used to create the mutant X-23. While we wait for more details on Wolverine 3, take a look at the latest set photos below, and stay tuned as more details come in.

Zac Efron Circling Role Opposite Hugh Jackman In Musical Biopic Greatest Showman

16 June 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron has spent the last few years bearing witness to a Sorority Rising in Neighbors 2, along with hitching a ride cross-country opposite Robert De Niro’s unruly and Dirty Grandpa.

According to Variety, though, the so-hot-right-now star is on the verge of joining The Greatest Showman on Earth, the P.T. Barnum musical biopic that already boasts Hugh Jackman’s name on the casting docket. Truth be told, the Aussie has been linked with the movie since it was first hatched at Fox back in 2009,

Jenny Bicks of Sex and the City fame will pen the screenplay with Michael Gracey in line to direct. Chernin Entertainment, meanwhile, will produce Greatest Showman alongside Laurence Mark and Jackman himself.

Chronicling the creation of three-ring act Barnum & Bailey Circus, Greatest Showman will herald a return to the musical genre for Jackman, who last flexed his singing chops on Les Misérables and, to a lesser extent, Warner Bros. flop Pan. Of course, the X-Men stalwart has racked up a string of Broadway appearances, while Zac Efron will be drawing inspiration from his formative years headlining Disney’s High School Musical.

No word yet on Fox’s production timeline for The Greatest Showman on Earth, but we’ll keep you posted as more information comes to light. Look for Zac Efron to assume matrimonial duties in next month’s Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. Beyond that, there’s also a role in Paramount’s star-studded Baywatch movie, which will look to cause R-rated chaos in 2017. »

New 'Wolverine: Weapon X' Set Photos Reveal Action Sequence

16 June 2016 6:46 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Just Jared has posted photographs from the set of 20th Century Fox’s “The Wolverine 3” starring Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart. The set photos in question show a bearded Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine emerging from a Chrysler Limousine which has been blasted with bullet holes. Jackman is seen driving the car seemingly trying to escape from someone or something. Last week, set photos revealed Jackman and Patrick Stewart acting out scenes with an unknown actress in her pre-teens. The girl is believed to be the female clone of Wolverine with the codename “X-23.”

Nerdist revealed from a source to the production that the main villains will be a gang of cybernetic-enhanced mercenaries known as the Reavers. In the comics, the Reavers were under the command of X-Men villain, Donald Pierce, who programmed the cyborgs to hunt down and eliminate all mutants. Rumors suggest British actor Richard E. Grant is playing Pierce as his role has been kept under wraps.

The Wolverine 3,” which is rumored to be titled "Wolverine: Weapon X" is directed by James Mangold and stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal, and Eriq La Salle. The film comes out on March 2, 2017.

Efron In Talks To Join Jackman In 'The Greatest Showman On Earth'

16 June 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Variety is reporting that actor Zac Efron is in negotiations to star alongside Hugh Jackman in 20th Century Fox's "The Greatest Showman On Earth." Director Michael Gracey is signed on to direct the contemporary musical from a script by screenwriter Jenny Bicks. Chernin Entertainment is producing with Laurence Mark and Hugh Jackman.

The premise for Jackman's character says he will play "the showman with a specialty in hoaxing a gullible public as he creates the three-ring Barnum & Bailey Circus that made him famous. Barnum had gained fame as a 19th Century impressario with tours of Tom Thumb and the singer Jenny Lind; he began calling it the “Greatest Show on Earth” near the end of his career."

Zac Efron can be seen in Universal Pictures' "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" and also in 20th Century Fox's "Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates" next month.
