Will the newly discovered ‘Wrinkle in Time’ pages influence the Disney film?

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A never-before-seen passage from “A Wrinkle in Time” has hit the web. For those eagerly (or hesitantly) anticipating the Disney movie adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved sci-fi/fantasy book, the question arises, Could these newly discovered pages influence the direction of the film? “A Wrinkle in Time” — which would be likely classified as Ya today, though L’Engle once said her books were for people, not just children — follows 13-year-old Meg Murray and her wunderkind five-year-old brother Charles Wallace as they traverse between planets to find their missing scientist father. Jennifer Lee, who co-directed “Frozen,” is set to pen the script for Disney’s upcoming big screen take on the book. Last week, The Wall Street Journal posted the cut passage, three typewriter-composed pages discovered by L’Engle’s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis. In these pages, which you can read here, Meg asks her father how the Black Thing (pure evil Mr. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Will Change the Franchise's Universe

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Later this month, production will begin in Montreal on the highly-anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse, which will be the last installment of the new trilogy that includes X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. We know the story is set in the 1980s, but very few plot details have been confirmed at this point. The movie, set for release on May 27, 2016, will also be bookended by two new movies that take place within the X-Men cinematic universe, Deadpool (February 12, 2016) and Gambit (October 7, 2016). Writer/producer Simon Kinberg revealed some new details about the upcoming installments.

"That has the same kind of integration. It's a smaller group. All of the films are aware of each other. I know what's happening in each story, of each of the movies and they certainly acknowledge each other. Things that happen in one film are acknowledged by the other movies.

X-men: Apocalypse Adds Lucas Till; Independence Day 2 Brings Back Bill Pullman

17 April 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s been talk of Bill Pullman’s return as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day 2 for a while, but now it’s finally official - although technically he can’t be president anymore, right? Regardless, not only did Roland Emmerich announce Pullman’s return, but he also revealed that Judd Hirsch will be back as well. Hirsch played David’s (Jeff Goldblum) father Julius Levinson in the original. So now the list of returning cast members includes Pullman, Hirsch, Goldblum, Brent Spiner as Dr. Brackish Okun, the kooky scientist at Area 51, and Vivica A. Fox as Captain Steven Hiller’s (Will Smith) wife, Jasmine Dubrow. As for the newcomers, we’ve got Liam Hemsworth as President Whitmore’s son-in-law, Jessie Usher as Steven Hiller’s son (presumably an older Dylan Dubrow), Travis Tope as a character named Charlie, and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Joey King in unknown roles. »

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to announce that Lucas Till is set to reprise his role as Alex Summers / Havok in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, with the actor joining an ever growing list of characters in the mutant superhero sequel.

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Lucas Till is set to reprise the role of Havok for a third time in Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse". The last instalment in this new trilogy, Till had a key supporting role "X-Men: First Class" and a lesser appearance in "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

Matthew Vaughn to Direct Flash Gordon Remake

17 April 2015 4:31 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After directing such hits as "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "X-Men: First Class" and "Kick-Ass," director Matthew Vaughn is now negotiating to direct his next movie, a remake of "Flash Gordon." The character was created in 1934 by iconic artist Alex Raymond. Along with the lovely Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, he ends up on the planet Mongo fighting its tyrannical ruler, Ming the Merciless. Vaughn's film will not be based on the 1980 movie, which is best known for its Queen soundtrack, inspiring George Lucas to make "Star Wars," and more recently, being constantly referenced in "Ted." Instead, the film will be based on the classic "Flash Gordon" comic strip. Back in 2009, Sam Worthington (Avatar) was attached to star in the movie, which was set to be directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies). »

Flash Gordon: Matthew Vaughn in talks to direct reboot

15 April 2015 10:43 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matthew Vaughn approaching the Flash Gordon reboot? It may be so - and that's likely to have a knock-on for Kingsman 2...

Director Matthew Vaughn has scored one of the big surprise hits of 2015 thus far, as Kingsman: The Secret Service has thus far grossed just over $390m worldwide, including $124m in the Us. Given the relatively modest $80m production bill for the movie, Kingsman is a risk that's paid off handsomely, and it's little secret that Vaughn wants to make a sequel to the movie.

But if he still does, it looks like it might not be the next project on his slate. Instead, he's now said to be in talks to direct the long-mooted big screen reboot of Flash Gordon.

The project is set up at 20th Century Fox (Fox distributed Kingsman, and Vaughn also made X-Men: First Class for the studio), and a script is in place from »

'X-Men: First Class' Director to Save All of Us With 'Flash Gordon' Reboot

15 April 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Matthew Vaughn has been a pretty reliable director ever since making his debut back in 2004 with the Daniel Craig-starring Layer Cake, but it's seemingly taken Hollywood a while to realize that he deserves to be a hot commodity. One would think that X-Men: First Class would have sealed that deal, but apparently it's the grand success of Kingsman: The Secret Service (which, believe it or not, made $40 million more worldwide than X-Men did while costing half as much) that's truly made him a favorite at Twentieth Century Fox. The studio already has him producing their Fantastic Four reboot, and now they've tapped Vaughn to direct a new version of Flash Gordon, the comic strip that not only resulted in a cult classic '80s movie, but was also one of George...
