Karl Urban Joins Pete's Dragon Remake

29 January 2015 11:00 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It would appear that Michael C. Hall is allergic to dragons. Actually, there isn’t a given reason why he’s decided to leave the new Pete’s Dragon film, but it means good news for Karl Urban fans as the Star Trek actor has stepped in to replace him.Ain’t Them Bodies Saints director David Lowery is busy putting the new version of the story together, working from a script he co-wrote with Toby Halbrooks. It’s Disney’s latest attempt to conjure a fresh take on one of its catalogue titles, this time the live-action/animation-blend 1977 film which saw a young lad befriend a magical dragon. The new movie will apparently deviate from the original, not by having the dragon turn evil and go all Smaug on the local town, but by stripping out the musical element and injecting an environmental message into the story.Robert Redford, »

Disney sets dates for Ghost In The Shell, The Jungle Book and Pete’s Dragon

14 January 2015 2:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney is set for a monumental couple of years at the box office through 2015, 2016 and beyond. This year sees both Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens debut, but that hasn’t stopped then from lining up some other big box-office treats for post-2015.

With news over the last week that Scarlett Johansson (Under the Skin) has officially signed on for the live-action remake of anime classic Ghost in The Shell (for which she is set to earn a cool $20 million), a release date has now been confirmed for April 14th, 2017. That date already has Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim 2 and an as-of-yet unannounced “monster movie” from Universal Pictures.

Johansson is also lending her talents to another remake, with her sultry vocal chords bringing life to Kaa the Snake in Jon Favreau’s live-action version of The Jungle Book. Originally, the film was due »

'Ghost In The Shell' With Scarlett Johansson Sets 2017 Release Date, 'Jungle Book' Pushed To 2016

13 January 2015 2:20 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You want to make an anime superfan upset? Tell them the live-action remake stars Scarlett Johansson, is coming from Disney, and will be directed by "Snow White And The Huntsman" helmer Rupert Sanders. Now you can bug them for a couple more years about it. The studio has slated the already semi-controversial "Ghost in the Shell" do-over for an April 14, 2017 release date. It parks the movie right between "Pacific Rim 2" and Universal's mystery monster movie project. Summer no longer stands alone as blockbuster season, in case you had any doubt. Meanwhile, Jon Favreau's "The Jungle Book" has been pushed back six months, to April 15, 2016, where it'll square off against "Goosebumps" and "The Best Man Wedding." Taking its place this year is the true story story drama, "The Finest Hours," with Casey Affleck and Chris Pine. Now arriving on October 9th, does Disney smell Oscar for this one? Lastly, David Lowery's. »

Michael C. Hall joins Disney’s Pete’s Dragon remake

11 January 2015 1:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming hot on the heels of the casting of Wes Bentley (Interstellar), it has now been announced that Dexter star Michael C. Hall has joined Pete’s Dragon, Disney’s upcoming remake of the 1977 film.

David Lowery is directing the film, which will star Oakes Fegley (This Is Where I Leave You) as Pete alongside Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World) and Robert Redford (Captain America: The Winter Soldier).

The remake is set to be live-action (with CGI bringing the dragon to life) and will be a straight narrative rather than a musical. It is set to arrive some time in 2016, although an exact release date is yet to be announced.
