Nipping at the heels of the nerve-shredding first teaser, Entertainment Weekly has today pulled back the curtain on key art for The Exorcist that unveils a fate worse than death.
In the works over at Fox, the seralized horror redo is one of many upcoming TV projects that will be banking on nostalgia – Training Day, Lethal Weapon, Frequency and NBC’s prequel spin on Taken all fall into a similar camp – though with the talent attached to The Exorcist, we’re inclined to give this one the benefit of the doubt.
At the helm for September’s pilot episode is Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), who is returning to the small-screen after dabbling with blockbuster fare. Alfonso Herrera, meanwhile, will be the one confronting pure evil as Father Tomas Ortega, the “new face of the Catholic Church” that brings a decidedly different, more progressive strategy to the table. »

This certainly flew under my radar...
Somehow, I had no idea that Fox was turning The Exorcist into a TV series, and this teaser trailer that's just been released is my legitimate introduction to what they have in store for us. This new take on The Exorcist is set to come out this fall, and you can check out the teaser right here on Lrm:
Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” broke box office records and terrified audiences around the world. Now, more than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film, The Exorcist returns as a TV series.
Directed by Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), The Exorcist is a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession.

We’re getting six major superhero movie releases in 2016 (Deadpool, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, and the upcoming Suicide Squad and Doctor Strange) but at one point we were going to get even more. Gambit was initially slated to open in fall 2016, only to hit a snag when original director Rupert Wyatt walked away. Although Doug Liman eventually signed on to replace him, production had to be delayed and Fox yanked the X-Men spinoff from its 2016 release calendar earlier this year.
Since then, we’ve heard next to nothing about the project, which still has Channing Tatum attached to play the Ragin’ Cajun. But expect that to change in the coming months. Producer Simon Kinberg has revealed that not only is Gambit still on, it’s aiming to start shooting in spring 2017. »

If you ask me what a clusterf@ck of modern movie production would look like, Gambit would be the first to come to mind. The movie has experienced more than its fair share of setbacks, one of the biggest losing director Rupert Wyatt as soon as they were to begin filming, eventually being replaced by Doug Liman. The movie was even supposed to come out this fall, but that had to be moved back due to the small fact... Read More »

“We have a great script on that and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning — or spring — of next year,” Kinberg said during an interview at the 2016 Saturn Awards.
The solo movie for the card-throwing Cajun was supposed to be released in theaters this year, but then Rupert Wyatt was replaced as director with Doug Liman. Because of the delay its October release has been pushed to an undetermined date.

During the short interview, Kinberg also revealed that “Deadpool 2” is likely to start shooting at the beginning of 2017, and is also going to be writing the next “X-Men” film “real soon. »

During an interview with The Hashtag Show (via Comic Book), writer-producer Simon Kinberg has spoken briefly about Fox’s upcoming X-Men schedule, as well as revealing that the current plan is to begin filming the oft-delayed Gambit movie in the Spring.
“We’re figuring out [the schedule now],” said Kinberg. “The first thing up, we’re shooting the Wolverine movie right now and we start shooting Deadpool 2 at the beginning of next year, then I sit down and start writing the next one of the mainline X-Men movies real soon. We have a great script on [Gambit] and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning of spring of next year.”
The Channing Tatum-headlined Gambit was originally slated for release this October, with Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) set to direct. However, Wyatt exited the project due to creative differences, with Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) then replacing him. »

Fox has released three promos for the small screen adaptation of The Exorcist; directed by Rupert Wyatt, the psychological horror series stars Geena Davis, Brianne Howey, Ben Daniels, Alfonso Herrera and Hannah Kasulka. Check them out here…
The Exorcist is a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession. Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera, “Sense8,” “The Chosen”) is the new face of the Catholic Church: progressive, ambitious and compassionate. He runs a small but loyal parish in the suburbs of Chicago. He has no idea that his quiet life is about to change forever. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, another priest finds himself locked in a life-and-death struggle with evil. Father Marcus Brennan (Ben Daniels, “Flesh and Bone,” “House of Cards”) is a modern-day Templar Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war against its enemies. »

Henson) pursues a new romantic interest; and his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers), struggle with fame and ambition.

The original plan, where the X-Men spin-off Gambit was concerned, was to have the film ready for this year. That’s clearly not happening, with not a frame of footage for the movie yet shot. The last we heard, Gambit was set to shoot later this year, with filming running into early 2017. A release before the end of 2017 was an outside shot.
But could that now be in doubt too?
Gambit was originally set to be directed by Rupert Wyatt, who eventually departed the project. In his place came Doug Liman, off the back of the excellent Edge Of Tomorrow. But now we learn that Liman has signed up to make the new post-apocalyptic young adult thriller, Chaos Walking, in addition to his commitment to another project, The Wall, that he's about to start shooting.
Chaos Walking is based on the series of books of the same name by Patrick Ness (the same Patrick Ness who’s heading up Doctor Who spin-off, Class), and Charlie Kaufman and Jamie Linden have been involved with the screenplay.
The problem? It looks as if Chaos Walking is set to shoot around the same time that Gambit is. And if that proves correct then one of two things is happening. Either Gambit has been delayed again, or Doug Liman is no longer directing, and the search is on for another helmer.
We await further information, and will pass it your way when we get it…
Channing Tatum’s commitment to Fox’s long-gestating Gambit movie was seemingly put to the sword earlier this week, when reports emerged that the Jump Street actor was eyeing a role in the DC Extended Universe.
Lending credence to those rumors was the fact that Gambit has displayed little-to-no signs of progress over the past few years – Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt bowed out of the solo movie, resulting in a second delay to production.

But now, citing a “deeply embedded source” at 20th Century Fox, Latino-Review has rubbished reports that Tatum was on the verge of exiting the mutant spinoff. Interestingly, the outlet doesn’t necessarily rule out the possibility that the actor is in line to join Warner and DC’s budding universe, but stopped short of revealing exactly which movie that Tatum is reportedly being courted for.

Things aren’t looking too good for Gambit, the upcoming X-Men spinoff that Channing Tatum has been trying to get off the ground for what seems like forever now. Not long after Doug Liman took over in the director’s chair for Rupert Wyatt, 20th Century Fox took the film off their release schedule. It’s yet another delay in a long line of them and some websites have begun to wonder if Tatum may be giving up on the project.
This is pure speculation and is, admittedly, a massive stretch, but Batman-News believes that the actor is switching teams and heading on over to the DC Extended Universe. Their reasoning simply comes down to the fact that days before Rick Famuyiwa was announced as director of The Flash, he followed a number of DC-related Twitter accounts. One of the people he began following was Tatum.

Despite the fact that Doug Liman recently took over from Rupert Wyatt as Gambit's director, the filmmaker's busy schedule and the fact that the movie no longer has a release date points to the X-Men spinoff not going anywhere fast. Star Channing Tatum has already taken on a role in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, but could he now be eyeing a role in the DC Films Universe? Last weekend, Batman-News noticed that Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa had started following a bunch of DC related Twitter accounts, and just days later, he was confirmed as the director of The Flash movie. Now, the site has noticed that among all of those new people he followed is Channing Tatum. Could it be that the actor has departed Gambit in order to take on a role in a DC Comics adaptation? It's pure speculation, but it does seem like »

Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.
Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, “Lethal Weapon” follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. From the moment the brash and impulsive Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) meets prudent, by-the-book Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), it seems as if this partnership is doomed. But after their first case together, both realize this arrangement might just work out after all – if Riggs doesn’t get them killed first.

FlickeringMyth.com recently sat down for an interview with producer Simon Kinberg during the "X-men: Apocalypse" press junket. During the interview, Kinberg gave a status update on the solo "Gambit" film which will star Channing Tatum and be directed by Doug Liman.
20th Century Fox first announced "Gambit" before summer 2015 with Channing Tatum attached to star and director Rupert Wyatt who directed Fox's "Planet Of The Apes" reboot, "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes." Wyatt eventually dropped out due to creative differences and the studio looked for a replacement in the form of Doug Liman, who made the underrated sci-fi film, "Edge Of Tomorrow", starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt.
Production for "Gambit” has stalled quite a bit with the hiring of a new director and script changes, but Kinberg assures us that the film is still in development.
On the subject of script rewrites, Kinberg said:
