Well, this is disappointing news. According to THR, Justice League Dark is the latest of Guillermo del Toro’s projects to fall by the wayside. Following the announcement that several upcoming Vertigo comics adaptations – like Neil Gaiman’s Sandman - were shifting from Warner Brothers’ plate to New Line’s, del Toro has officially stepped away from his supernatural DC pet project, which is actually something he suggested might happen back in April.
No reason for del Toro’s exit was given, as the report simply states that, while the director is still hard at work on developing a sequel to Pacific Rim and fine-tuning his upcoming horror film Crimson Peak, he is “no longer attached” to Justice League Dark.
This isn’t just disappointing news for fans of del Toro’s work; this could potentially mean that Jld – which has yet to get an official greenlight and remains absent »

Earlier today came word that Warners was passing on the handling of its proposed film adaptations of DC Vertigo titles to New Line. Whilst Warner Bros. Pictures will still handle all its DC Cinematic Universe titles like "Batman v Superman," "Justice League" and so forth, its New Line division would take the reigns of the more supernatural-toned comic adaptations in the works.
This would include "Sandman" and this team-up film of supernatural heroes such as John Constantine, Zatanna, Brand/Deadman and Jason Blood. del Toro has been linked to the project for some time but suggested earlier this year that despite the script being done, he may not have time to direct.
Now that seems certain. del Toro is currently finishing up his gothic »

There was to have been a Justice League Dark film directed by Guillermo del Toro. Like many fantasy-horror films to be directed by the highly in-demand fantasy-horror filmmaker, it likely won’t shake out. del Toro, the director behind Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim and this fall’s anticipated Crimson Peak is often attached to many a genre film, and just as…

Madrid – James D’Arcy (“Master and Commander,” “Cloud Atlas”), Jack Davenport (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) and Maria Valverde (“Exodus”) star in “Gernika,” a love story set against the infamous bombing of the Basque village, immortalized in Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica.”
Shot in the Basque Country, including in Gernika itself, the film marks the sophomore outing for Basque director Koldo Serra, who debuted impressively with “Backwoods,” a thriller portraying deep Spain prejudice and violence and starring Gary Oldman and Paddy Considine.
A Spain-u.S. co-production, “Gernika” is lead-produced by Daniel Dreifuss at new shingle Anima Pictures and, out of Spain, Jose Alba at Pecado Films. Carlos Clavijo at Travis Produce and Sayaka Producciones’ Nahikari Ipiña co-produce.
Helmed by a Basque, using a Basque tax shelter, and made with a Basque and Spanish crew, “Gernika” is supported by a host of Basque entities, led by pubcaster Etb, the region of Vizcaya and the Bilbao City Council. »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one).

Four New Character Posters for Crimson Peak Have Been Released. The new film by Guillermo del Toro has four new character posters. Crimson Peak‘s core cast is made of Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam, all of whom now have their own, personal one-sheets.
One of the trailers that was screened before my Jurassic World outing this past weekend was for Crimson Peak, del Toro’s latest gothic, haunted mansion horror movie. It really worked on the big screen, and actually grabbed my attention for the first time. I really think this could be good, but as with all horror movies – I’m trying my best to keep my expectations low.
What I’m hoping for from movie is one of two things: 1) Please don’t simply, only be that haunted house movie where whatever thing it is you’re chasing, is part of you, or is you, »

From the imagination of director Guillermo del Toro comes a supernatural mystery starring Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam. Yep, I'm sold, even if del Toro’s has had mixed results in his career thus far. But the cast of his upcoming movie “Crimson Peak” is superb, even if “Pacific Rim” actor Hunnam can be a dud if not used properly. Read More: The Films Of Guillermo Del Toro: From Worst To Best The movie is a romantic gothic horror focusing on a seductive stranger, a stolen heart, and a young woman swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay. Del Toro has explored these themes before, but as a movie with an erotic and romantic edge, this promises to be something special. And with this cast to bolster it, could “Crimson Peak” be del Toro’s best film to date? Produced by Legendary Pictures, »

Casting Has Begun for The Next Halloween Film Entitled Halloween Returns. Dimension films has begun the casting process for the next entry into the beloved, yet half-terrible, franchise of horror films. This will be the 11th film in the series, and is meant as a “recalibration” of sorts.
This will be a reboot. This will not follow the latest Rob Zombie directed films, nor continue along the Jamie Lee Curtis or Busta Rhymes storylines. That was a joke, but I felt it necessary to point out. In all seriousness, I adore the first Halloween film. It’s one of my top five horror films, and was a major influence of sensibilities and aesthetic taste in my early childhood. I’ve followed the franchise all my life and am always hoping for something pure, something that gets back to that first film. Hell, even the second, or H:20, even. I know »

Negotiations are still in early stages for a planned September start date. [caption id="attachment_265809" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Universal Pictures[/caption] This could be an excellent bit of casting if the script is right. These two couldn't be more of an odd couple pairing, and I could easily see them having killer on-screen chemistry. »

Further recruits have been added to the writer's room for the planned Transformers movie universe. The story so far on this is that Akiva Goldsman is heading up a collection of scribes, that already features The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Christina Hodson & Lindsey Beer, Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari (who worked on Ant-Man), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Pacific Rim), Zak Penn (Pacific Rim 2) and Jeff Pinker (Lost). So, including Goldsman, that's seven writing teams, and 10 individual writers.
But there's more. At the end of last week, Black Hawk Down's Ken Nolan signed up, as did Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who's been writing a space thriller for Roland Emmerich. And now we learn that Daredevil season one showrunner Steven DeKnight is on board as well. So, we make that 10 writing teams, »

Press Release -- "“You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They’re patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you’ve paid so much attention to in mirrors? It’s delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to forge your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful.”

In his book ‘The Great Movies: Volume 2’, Roger Ebert wrote that “King Kong is the father of Jurassic Park, the Alien movies, and countless other stories where the heroes are terrified by skillful special effects”. In volume 1, he wrote that “Star Wars was a technological watershed that influenced many of the movies that came after.” In this article, Cinelinx looks at an 82 year old monster movie and a 38 year old space opera, in order to determine which is the seminal film in the evolution of movies in regard to setting the path for the modern era.
Let’s start with King Kong. It’s been 10 years since the last film version of King Kong, which was directed by Peter Jackson. (Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit) There was a remake by Dino De Laurentis in 1976, and even a few Japanese Dai Kaiju Eiga versions of the giant ape in the 1960s, »
