Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story Movie Reportedly Still In Development

On top of Episodes VIII, Episode IX and Rian Johnson’s planned fourth trilogy, Disney and Lucasfilm are also working on a host of Star Wars spinoff movies under the Anthology banner. Last year brought us Rogue One, next year will usher in Solo and sometime in the near future we’ll get an Obi-Wan standalone, too. That’s not all, though, as it appears now that an old project has been resurrected as well: the Boba Fett movie.

Star Wars fans might recall that a vehicle for the beloved bounty hunter was announced a few years ago, with Chronicle‘s Josh Trank attached to direct. After his career crashed and burned following 2014’s Fantastic Four, however, the Boba Fett movie seemed to have been shelved indefinitely. Back in August, though, we learned that Lucasfilm was thinking of resurrecting the project.

According to a new report from Omega Underground, it

Rian Johnson Has No Limitations With His New Star Wars Trilogy

Those that pay attention to these kinds of things might be forgiven for having the view that Lucasfilm – under the command of Kathleen Kennedy – has a problem playing well with filmmakers. The relaunch of the Star Wars franchise was, at first, filled with excitement and plans for an Anthology movie by Chronicle director Josh Trank – but he unexpectedly departed the project in its early stages. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, meanwhile, – though ultimately well-received – was fraught with tales of director Gareth Edwards being sidelined for reshoots and post-production.

Most recently, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from Solo: A Star Wars Story halfway through principal photography, and Colin Trevorrow parted ways with Star Wars: Episode IV amid rumours of discord between himself and senior Lucasfilm figures. Star Wars: The Last Jedi filmmaker Rian Johnson is here to demonstrate a different scenario, though, having given an interview

Pokemon Movie Detective Pikachu Gets Big Little Lies Star in the Lead

Pokemon Movie Detective Pikachu Gets Big Little Lies Star in the Lead
Legendary's Detective Pikachu has finally found its female lead, with Big Little Lies star Kathryn Newton entering talks with the studio. This comes just two weeks after Justice Smith signed on as the male lead, and with production reportedly set to begin in January 2018, there will likely be a flurry of casting announcements coming in the near future. It remains unclear how many more major roles will need to be filled, but the title character is by far the biggest.

Last month, an unconfirmed report revealed that the producers want to lock down an A-List action star to voice Detective Pikachu, with the four names on Legendary's "wish list" said to be Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds and Mark Wahlberg. Unfortunately, no story details have been given, and there are no details about who either Kathryn Newton or Justice Smith will play, or how they may be connected to Detective Pikachu.

John Landis' Canceled American Werewolf in London Sequel Sounds Amazing

John Landis' Canceled American Werewolf in London Sequel Sounds Amazing
An American Werewolf in London, one of the greatest horror movies ever made, never got the sequel it deserved. Director John Landis did have a pitch for one though, as revealed in the forthcoming book Beware The Moon: The Story of An American Werewolf In London. Now, the pitch for the sequel has been revealed, and it sounds pretty amazing. Here's what the sequel would have been about and how it almost came to be, according to John Landis.

"I was asked to do a sequel by PolyGram in 1991. The company, under Jon Peters and Peter Guber, made something like 10 or 12 movies, and the only one that made money was American Werewolf. They then left the company and were replaced by a guy called Michael Kuhn. He called me and said that they were interested in making a sequel. I entertained the idea for a little bit and then came

Justice League and the dangers of extensive reshoots

Ryan Lambie Nov 17, 2017

They're pricey, and can prove to be a huge risk. In the wake of Justice League, we look at the rise of extensive reshoots...

Nb: the following contains very mild spoilers for Justice League, but nothing you couldn't glean from the trailers.

You only have to look at the news that came out of the Warner-dc camp to see how plans for its Justice League team-up movie changed over time. Only two years ago - a relatively brief window, in blockbuster filmmaking terms - the studio announced that Justice League would comprise two parts, one scheduled for release in the autumn of 2017 and the second slated for the summer of 2019.

One year later, director Zack Snyder revealed that the plan had changed

Netflix Is Recruiting a Will Smith Army to Promote Bright

Netflix Is Recruiting a Will Smith Army to Promote Bright
Is your name Will Smith? If so, Netflix, and the star of such movies as Independence Day and Suicide Squad, Will Smith, needs your help to promote their upcoming movie, Bright. That's right, apparently, the actor Will Smith is far too busy to handle the busy press schedule for Bright and he is in need of some other people with his same name to help fill in for him. At this point, we have more questions than answers, but this is a very real thing that is really happening.

Netflix recently released a video via their official Twitter account featuring Will Smith, who stars in Bright alongside Joel Edgerton. The video features Smith discussing the busy schedule Netflix has him on to promote the movie and, since he's a busy guy, he apparently can't do it all himself. So, he's requesting that anyone named Will Smith reach out to Netflix so they can help.

New Bright Trailer Is Lord of the Rings Meets Training Day

New Bright Trailer Is Lord of the Rings Meets Training Day
Netflix has been releasing a ton of original movies lately, and they plan on increasing that output next year. But few movies they release are going to be as high-profile as Bright, which arrives on the streaming service later this year. Now, a brand new trailer has been released that gives us a much better idea of what to expect, which pretty much looks like Lord of the Rings meets Training Day, as hard as that may be to believe.

The first teaser trailer for Bright gave us a very general idea of what to expect from the fantasy/sci-fi movie. Humans, Orcs and other fantastical creatures live together as if it's no big deal. Magical weapons exist. Stuff like that. But this full-length trailer actually gives us a sense of the story. Joel Edgerton is playing the first ever Orc who becomes a cop and Will Smith is stuck being his partner.

Will Smith Fights the Supernatural in 'Bright' Trailer
Will Smith is shining a light on his next film, Bright.

The new trailer shows off more of the fantasy tale of a cop (Smith) and his Orc partner (Joel Edgerton).

The new look comes a few months after a spirited panel at San Diego Comic-Con, where David Ayer introduced the first trailer for the film and praised Netflix (while also knocking movie studios): "This ain't no bullshit PG-13 studio movie. I was able to do my shit. I was able to do my thing."

Bright was written by Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis, and finds its cop progatonist forced to outrun law enforcement, criminals and...

Chronicle Scribe Max Landis Wants To Bring Horror’s Slasher Icons Together For An Epic Crossover

Look away now, Universal, for Max Landis has conjured up a pitch that would bring together horror’s slasher icons for an unforgettable event movie.

While appearing on Nerdist’s The Writers Panel podcast (via Bloody Disgusting), the Chronicle scribe revealed his far-flung idea for a franchise crossover, one in which Freddy Krueger, Chucky and even Jason Voorhees inhabit the same universe. It’s a little out there, and Landis is known for pitching crazy ideas for shits and giggles – sometimes they stick (see: Bright), whereas others fade into obscurity.

But let’s entertain this potential doozy for a moment. The elevator pitch for Landis’ horror crossover would center on a “John Boyega from Attack the Block” type 17-year-old who is placed in the care of a picture-perfect suburban family…on Elm Street. From there, things get weird, as our protagonist is poisoned by his new parents and begins to dream of Freddy Krueger.

7 Reasons Why The Fantastic Four Reboot Deserves Another Chance

Never before has a film with so much potential bombed so hard. This reboot of the 2005 Tim Story movie of the same name was meant to attract a new generation of viewers by cashing in on the superhero craze brought about by The Avengers, whilst still telling an original tale.

The idea was this: the original Fantastic Four had gotten the aesthetics right, but completely flopped with regards to everything else like tone and character motivations, especially as they were depicted in Jack Kirby’s original run. As director Josh Trank, coming off of Chronicle, pointed out, the earlier issues of the Fantastic Four had elements of body horror to them, from the design of the Thing to Doctor Doom’s imposing face plate.

At the same time, it was clear that the original version of four people going into space and getting blasted by cosmic rays was an outdated

Meet Rising Star Alex Russell, the Aussie Actor Making a Mark in Hollywood (Exclusive)

Meet Rising Star Alex Russell, the Aussie Actor Making a Mark in Hollywood (Exclusive)
Meet Alex Russell, the 29-year-old Australian actor whose breakthrough role in 2012’s inventive found-footage sci-fi superhero thriller, Chronicle, has paid off in spades. Five years after the release of the film, the not-so newcomer is preparing for the simultaneous release of three projects: real-life, big-screen adaptations Jungle, opposite Daniel Radcliffe, and Only the Brave, with Miles Teller and Josh Brolin, along with the upcoming premiere of the CBS drama, S.W.A.T., starring Shemar Moore.

It’s been a nonstop ride for the actor ever since. Before 2017 rolled around, Russell -- whose first credited role came just seven years ago -- had a whirlwind year filming four movies back-to-back, taking him from Los Angeles to Colombia to Mexico to the Gold Coast with a quick 24-hour respite in between in Nashville to reunite with his love, Goliath star Diana Hopper, for a wedding.

The past several months, though, Russell has called Southern California home while he’s been in production
