(Cbr) According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox's "Deadpool" film finally has an official release date: Feb. 12, 2016. Tim Miller is set to direct, and while reportedly no deal is yet in place for Ryan Reynolds to star, THR says it's likely. Additionally, Fox has moved Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot from June 19, 2015 to Aug. 7 of the same year. Although "Deadpool" has been long in development at Fox, it wasn't until animated test footage by Blur Studios leaked online after Comic-Con International 2014 that buzz really began amongst fans. The footage, known to exist via comments from "Deadpool" co-creator Rob Liefeld, featured Ryan Reynolds voicing the popular Marvel character in a far different incarnation than in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." The test footage, which contains adult language, was far more true to the comics version of the character, right down to him breaking the fourth wall. With the move of "Fantastic Four" to »

20th Century Fox is pushing its Fantastic Four reboot release date back a couple of months. Directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle), the film was originally scheduled to hit theaters on June 16, 2015, but Fox has now opted to move the pic to August 7, 2015. While August doesn’t necessarily seem like better real estate than June for the summer movie season, Disney had massive success in slating Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy for the beginning of August this year, which benefitted from the dearth of quality films throughout the rest of the month. The Fantastic Four will now square off against the all-ages horror comedy Goosebumps with Jack Black, but what of Fox’s other film that was slated for release on August 7th? Well the studio has now pulled Assassin’s Creed from the schedule entirely, giving it a “Tbd” release date. Hit the jump for more, including a release »

Fox on Thursday shifted the release date for its Marvel superhero movie “The Fantastic Four” from June 19, 2015, to August 7, 2015. The video game adaptation “Assassin's Creed” had been set for that date and will likely push to 2016. Directed by Josh Trank (“Chronicle”), “Fantastic Four” stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Toby Kebbell. The new date puts it up against Sony's horror comedy “Goosebumps,” but it's also the slot that launched Disney's blockbuster Marvel space romp “Guardians of the Galaxy” this summer, and comes just a few weeks after the fan boy extravaganza Comic-Con. Fox also shifted “Paper Towns, »

Exclusive: Following an Emmy-nominated run on Netflix’s House Of Cards, Kate Mara has been offered a role in Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

Mara already is set to play Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman in the studio’s superhero reboot Fantastic Four, which Chronicle‘s Josh Trank is helming. She’s repped by UTA.

Once the lucrative deal was made between Lucasfilm and Disney for the ownership of a galaxy far, far away, it’s fair to say that the studio have made plans to reinvigorate the IP for a modern audience by introducing a Star Wars spin-off film intermittently between the confirmed trilogy of VII, VIII and IX.
Although, exactly which characters these projects will feature remains shrouded in mystery, with reports suggesting that the planned Boba Fett spin-off encountered problems purely because of its villainous and wholly ambiguous lead. Now, it seems the latest character to be in contention for their own spin-off is Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
At least, that’s the latest mooted rumour making the rounds today, courtesy of Making Star Wars.
“For the spin-off movies they were initially going to stay away from any Jedi or Sith characters. But I’m hearing now that because of the popularity »

It had been rumoured that both would be villains in the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi, but based on what we’re seeing here, that won’t be the case…at least not at first! One popular theory is that the Rebels took over the Stormtroopers and their spaceships and that what we’re seeing here are the remnants of the Empire making use of some sinister looking X-Wings. It seems far-fetched, but who knows?!
Less of a theory and more of a rumour is the news doing the rounds that Lucasfilm have started developing a Star Wars spin-off which will put the spotlight on fan favourite Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. »

Might Obi-Wan Kenobi be being added to the list of characters getting their own Star Wars movie?
As with most Star Wars rumours at the moment, it's worth helping yourself to the requisite dosage of salt with this one, even if it does seem to make some sense.
It's little secret after all that Disney/Lucasfilm is working on a series of Star Wars spin-off movies, which are likely to focus on individual characters and the origins of them. Already, Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank have been confirmed as directors of two of these films.
Rumoured candidates amongst the Star Wars characters? Han Solo seems a certainty, and there's a wave of support for Boba Fett as well. And now Making Star Wars wants to throw another one into the mix. It returns, hearing this from "quite a few people now", that an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off movie is being developed. »
In addition to the upcoming continuing installments of Star Wars – Episode VII will kick off the reinvigorated film series – Lucasfilm will also be releasing three standalone spinoff movies to fill the time between official episodes. Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and Josh Trank (Fantastic Four) have already been tapped to helm two of the spinoff films, the first of which is expected to premiere in 2016. According to rumors, these movies could revolve around Han Solo, Boba Fett, and/or an X-Wing squad.
However, another character that fans (and actor Ewan McGregor himself) hope to see lead his own spinoff film is Obi-Wan Kenobi. According to a new ...

The Star Wars spin-off films are now a confirmed project, with Disney and Lucasfilm emplying the likes of Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards to work on movies that will fit in between the new trilogy entries. Their subjects remain shrouded in mystery but now a fresh rumour has surfaced about Obi-Wan Kenobi getting his own movie.Naturally, we’d caution that you should keep the Star Wars Rumour Alert Klaxon on standby, but according to Making Star Wars, there could be movement on the concept. “For the spin-off movies they were initially going to stay away from any Jedi or Sith characters,” says the site. “But I’m hearing now that because of the popularity of Obi-Wan (fans recently voting for him on the official website etc.) that an art team is now working with a writer on concepts for an Obi-Wan movie.” If you should visit that site, be warned that there are other, »
As little as we know about Star Wars Episode VII, we know even less about the Star Wars stand-alone films. We know Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank and directing the first two.

It’s no secret that the superhero film genre has expanded significantly over the last decade. Thanks to the likes of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise, Marvel’s expansive cinematic universe, and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, superhero films and comic book adaptations are the hottest comodities in Hollywood right now.
That trend will only quicken over the next few years, too. Marvel is showing no signs of stopping and will soon release three films a year up until at least 2028. Warner Bros. is building an entire DC Cinematic Universe off of last year’s Man of Steel, that includes Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 and nine untitled projects slated for release from 2016 to 2020. Fox has finally hit its stride with Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will give way to a sequel in 2016 and various spin-offs »

Exclusive: Jeff Berg’s Resolution has hired new agent Brehan Fitzgerald from the ranks of 20th Century Fox’s casting division. The former VP of Fox feature casting is starting to make calls around town as she transitions into her new gig repping talent at the agency, effective today.
Why make the leap from casting exec to talent agent? “Working with artists is very rewarding, but when you work in casting you only get to do it for short period of time,” she told me. “Joining the representation side is much more exciting because when you work with an artist, it’s for the long term.” Fitzgerald had a hand in casting some of the studio’s biggest franchises during her 12 year run at Fox, where she rose to VP in 2012. She helped land Michael B. Jordan and Dane DeHaan in Josh Trank’s low budget sci-fier Chronicle, Toby Kebbel »

Love is powerful, but is it mighty enough to take down towering creatures that would be at home in a Godzilla movie? With the help of an ancient sword, love might be strong enough for such a task faced by the young man Wander in the 2005 fantasy video game, Shadow of the Colossus. In the works for years, Sony’s adaptation of the popular game is taking shape with the signing of a director.

In case you were wondering, yes, the Shadow of the Colossus movie is still in the works and now it's gotten a change up in the directors.

Andres Muschietti, the Argentinian filmmaker who brought us Mama back in 2013, is the latest director linked to the in-development adaptation of artsy videogame Shadow of the Colossus for Sony Pictures. Deadline reports Muschietti will replace Josh Trank, who was attached to the adaptation of the classic PlayStation 2 game back in 2012. Trank presumably had to pass on the project when his dance card started filling up with titles like The Fantastic Four and an upcoming Star Wars spinoff. Bringing game designer Fumito Ueda.s work to the screen was a dream project for the Chronicle director from the moment he first played Shadow of the Colossus back in 2005. Films based on videogames have yet to gain much traction in Hollywood, and while Shadow of the Colossus could potentially change that, it.s not going to be a simple title to translate to the screen. The story revolves around a young man »

It's been five years since Sony Pictures announced that it's turning the "Shadow of the Colossus" video game into a movie. At one point Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) was on board to direct, but now comes word that that's no longer the case. Sony just announced that it replaced Trank with Andres Muschietti (Mama), who'll be directing from a script by Seth Lochhead (Hanna). "We knew we had our director once we heard Andy's take on the material . it was genius," said Sony. "The themes, characters and supernatural elements of the story have incredible international appeal with fans of the game in the millions." The game centers on the character Wander, who along with his horse Agro travels across a Western-style landscape to defeat enemies known as Collosi, with Wander's larger aim to save the girl Mono. It was released back in 2005 and quickly became a huge hit, selling more than 2.7 million copies worldwide. »
Back in 2006 up and coming Uttoxeter-born director Shane Meadows (Dead Mans Shoes) began working on a low-budget British movie centring around the skinhead subculture in the aftermath of the Falklands War in the early 80’s. Based on his own childhood experiences during the time, the movie struck a delicate and poignant chord in the UK and helped launch the careers of young British actors including Vicky McClure (Line Of Duty, Broadchurch), Thomas Turgoose (Eden Lake), Joe Gilgun (Pride) and Jack O’Connell (Starred Up). It was hailed by many critics as one of the best British movies of the decade and in 2008 it won the Alexander Korda Award for Best British Film at the BAFTAs. It spawned two very successful TV miniseries – This Is England ’86 and This Is England ’88 – with a third instalment on the horizon.
After almost three years of waiting it now looks like This Is England ’90 finally has it’s shooting date. »

Now this could be good. There had been talk before about bringing the excellent videogame Shadow Of The Colossus to the big screen (with Chronicle, Fantastic Four reboot and now Star Wars director Josh Trank attached at one stage).

Said director is Andres Muschietti, who broke through with the horror film Mama. For some time, he was attached to direct Universal's reboot of The Mummy, before parting company with that particular project. Alex Kurtzman is the new Mummy helmer.
