Ang Lee In Talks To Direct Gemini Man

23 April 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

First announced at Disney nearly 20 years ago, the long-gestating clone assassin film, Gemini Man, has been stuck in development hell forever. Numerous directors, actors and writers have flirted with the project over the past several years, but so far, nothing has materialized. Until now, that is. That’s because The Hollywood Reporter is telling us that there’s finally some movement this week, as Ang Lee has entered talks to direct.

Described as a “high-concept thriller,” Gemini Man boasts a fairly exciting premise. It centers on “an aging assassin who tried to get out of the business but finds himself in the ultimate battle: fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him and at the peak of his abilities.” The most interesting part about this though is that apparently, the plan is to use an older actor for the role of the assassin and instead of having a younger star play the clone, »

Gemini Man could finally be coming to the screen, with Ang Lee directing

23 April 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been stuck in development hell for twenty years, but it looks like the action thriller Gemini Man may finally be about to make its way to the big screen, with THR reporting that Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Life of Pi) is in talks to direct for Skydance Productions.

Gemini Man follows an aging assassin who tried to get out of the business but finds himself in the ultimate battle: fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him and at the peak of his abilities.

The project was first set up at Disney in 1997, with Tony Scott signing on to direct from a pitch by Darren Lemke. The idea was to have the same actor portray both the assassin and his younger clone using digital effects – something that was deemed impossible at the time due to technological limitations. It then passed through the hands of a host of writers, »

Sigourney Weaver Might Be Digitally De-Aged for 'Alien' Prequels

17 April 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Aging used to be an issue for movie stars, particularly women. But not anymore, thanks to digital wizardry that can make any person appear as young or old as needed for a role. We've seen de-aging done for flashbacks as far back as X2: X-Men United and witnessed it in Marvel's Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War. And we've seen it work in prequels and other movies that need a certain character to look as they did decades ago, namely Tron: LegacyTerminator Genisys and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Soon we may get to add an Alien prequel to the bunch.  According to an interview exclusively in the print magazine Empire, Alien director Ridley Scott, who has also helmed the...

6 April 2017 11:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shanghai Disneyland's most thrilling attraction, Tron Lightcycle Power Run, could be making its way to U.S. Disney parks. The attraction opened on June 16th, 2016 in Shanghai to rave reviews, unlike its movie counterpart, Tron: Legacy. The Tron Lightcycle Power Run is a roller coaster that puts riders on their own Lightcycles, tearing through the Grid at almost 60 miles per hour, which makes it the fastest of any Disney roller coaster to date.

Wdwnt reports that a group of Disney engineers responsible for design and budgeting have been sent to Disneyland Shanghai to possibly bring the Tron Lightcycle Power Run to the U.S. Disney parks. Rumor suggests that the attraction could be built in Tomorrowland within the next five years.

"Walt Disney World is planning to build the attraction in Tomorrowland ahead of October 1st, 2021, the start of the 50th anniversary celebration for the entire resort. This would »

Alternate Movie History: Tom Cruise and the 'Zero Dark Thirty' Connection You Might Not Expect

4 April 2017 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Hollywood is full of alternate movie history. An actor or director gets attached to project and then a few months, or even years, later is forced to drop out. It's the reason we have Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, or that Christopher Nolan directed Interstellar and not Steven Spielberg. A lot of the time this just gets chalked up to scheduling conflicts and we never really learn the truth. But today we learned of some fun alternate movie history that affects two different movies, Oblivion and Zero Dark ThirtyJessica Chastain recently relayed the story of how the star of the former made the latter possible for her.  When Joseph Kosinski's follow-up film to Tron: Legacy was announced, it was going to star Tom Cruise and Chastain.

Beauty and the Beast 2 Won't Happen, a Prequel or Spin-Off Is Possible

21 March 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As expected, Disney's long-awaited live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast struck a powerful chord with moviegoers everywhere, to the tune of a record-breaking opening weekend of $174.7 million, the highest ever for the month of March, easily breaking the record set last year by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In almost every instance of a blockbuster success of this caliber, the movie's respective studios will often announce and/or confirm plans for a sequel on Monday, to capitalize on the momentum of their hit. That didn't happen yesterday though at Disney, with the studio's production president Sean Bailey confirming in a new interview that there will not be a sequel to Beauty and the Beast, although there may be prequels and/or spin-offs.

Deadline spoke with Sean Bailey, who told the site that the studio will explore various possibilities for prequels and spin-offs. Unfortunately, he wouldn't offer any specifics, »

21 March 2017 8:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Although dressing up in costume for fan conventions has been around for more than 70 years, the general public doesn’t really understand the fan-favorite practice. “Cosplay Melee” aims to change that.

Syfy’s reality competition show, premiering Tuesday, March 21, aims to demystify cosplay, a portmanteau word comprised of “costume” and “play.” Sort of a “Project Runway” for geeks, the series shows the competitors in action, creating their costumes from scratch within a specified time limit.

Tim Burton’s live action remake of Dumbo is due to start shooting this spring.

Disney’s Tim Burton-directed live action version of the classic tale Dumbo is sure to be of interest to many.

Not only is the story much loved by millions around the world, a story many grew up with, but any time that Batman director Tim Burton gets his hands on a project one can expect something a little different.

With recent reports that Danny DeVito and Eva Green will be joining the project we now are getting reports from My Entertainment World that production is due to commence this April in the UK.

Dumbo tells the story of a young elephant with incredibly large ears that learns how to fly. The original Disney film was released in 1941 and was the company’s fourth animated feature film.

Black Lightning Adds Christine Adams As Lynn Stewart

12 March 2017 12:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The CW’s small-screen take on DC Comics superhero Black Lightning has cast British actress Christine Adams in the final lead role of the series, Lynn Stewart. She’ll be joining Cress Williams as the former titular crime-fighter, as well as Nafessa Williams and China Anne McLain as his daughters, Anissa and Jennifer – who will most likely suit up as Thunder and Lightning at some point as the show progresses.

In the comics, Lynn is Jefferson’s ex-wife, though the two maintain a good relationship. It’s not clear if that’ll carry over to the series or not, but we do know this version of the character is described as a woman “who exudes confidence and intelligence. Although she’s got a mischievous side, she’s not one to be trifled with when it comes to family.”

Adams is no stranger to the comic book/sci-fi genre, having appeared »

Check them out here.
