Rumour: Rachel McAdams offered female lead in Marvel’s Doctor Strange

6 July 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Marvel Studios skipping the San Diego Comic-Con International this year, it’s unlikely we’ll get any big Marvel news this week, but we do have a casting rumour to chew on for Doctor Strange.

According to rumour specialists Heroic Hollywood, Rachel McAdams (True Detective) has been offered the female lead in the Phase Three release. No character details have been mentioned, but there’s speculation online that the role could be that of Clea, a love interest to the Sorcerer Supreme, daughter of Umar and neice of Dormammu.

Kevin Fiege talks Doctor Strange and gender-swapping The Ancient One

29 June 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As we gear up for the release of Ant-Man, it seems only right that Marvel head honcho Kevin Fiege start the hype machine for upcoming releases from the McU schedule. In particular, Doctor Strange.

Feige has confirmed at a press event for Ant-Man that Stephen Strange will indeed be living in New York saying, “The Sanctum is on Bleeker Street, the modern day Bleeker Street. He will be the strangest thing walking out onto that street.”

Casting for the movie is currently taking place in London ahead of the movie starting production in November. One bit of casting that has caused a few stirs around the Internet is Tilda Swinton playing The Ancient One. “As we were developing this film we looked at The Ancient One as a mantle more than a specific person,” Fiege said of the gender change. “The sorcerers have been around for millennia, protecting us from »

Watch: This Fan-Made Doctor Strange Title Sequence Is Kind of Great

27 June 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marvel Studios is poised to make its first foray into the realm of the mystical with 2016’s Doctor Strange, and while the initial casting process for the comics adaptation was rather lengthy, things are now barreling towards a late 2015 start-date for production. The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister director Scott Derrickson is helming the picture, with Benedict Cumberbatch starring in the lead role of Doctor Strange, a Tony Stark-esque cocky surgeon who loses the use of his hands in an accident and, while on a subsequent quest to heal himself, stumbles across magic. Casting is underway, with Tilda Swinton in negotiations to play Strange’s mentor the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor in talks to reportedly play the villainous Baron Mordo, but we’re still about a year and a half away from the film’s release. With Marvel skipping Comic-Con this summer, we shouldn’t expect to see »

Interview: Producer Jason Blum on the Future of Blumhouse and Always Chasing Scary Movies

25 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions really only started to branch out beyond the Paranormal Activity franchise three years ago, but those three years have been ridiculously prolific. In that short time, Blumhouse has established itself as a powerhouse in Hollywood horror, with a consistent string of hits like Insidious, Sinister, and The Purge proving that low budgets don't have to equate to bad movies. Blumhouse has even begun dipping its toes outside of the horror genre, most notably with last year's Best Picture nominee Whiplash. And it's all because Blum had this crazy plan to enable filmmakers to make the kind of movies they want to make so long as they aim high and spend low. Last week one of Blumhouse's most recent hits...

Jason Blum interview: Paranormal Activity, Amityville & more

23 June 2015 12:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Producer Jason Blum chats to us about Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension, and what the future holds after the franchise...

The Paranormal Activity series is heading towards its big conclusion with The Ghost Dimension, the first film in the series to come in 3D, and the one that will finally explain what the heck has been going on. As the first trailer for the film is just dropping, I had a chat with producer Jason Blum about the series overall, the promise of this alleged final chapter, and the state of the nation with Blumhouse and their pantheon of responsibly-priced, often risky horror movies. Here's how the conversation went down.

Who is the overall boss of the Paranormal Activity series? We've had different writers and directors come and go, but when it comes to the whole sequence, who is steering the ship?  

There are multiple captains. It's a combination of Oren [Peli] and I, »

'Deus Ex' Movie Announcement Is Coming Soon

20 June 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Everyone keeps expected video game movies to take off the way superhero movies have, but that just hasn't happened yet, with most being critically derided and not very well received by fans. Hollywood is hoping to change that with two big 2016 releases, Warcraft and Assassin's Creed. If they are as successful as expected, more will surely follow. Including a movie based on the popular Deus Ex franchise. Square Enix, publisher of the title, arrived at E3 2015 with, not news of the movie, but news of an announcement for the movie. Yes, according to producer Adrian Askarieh, we'll definitely know more about the Deus Ex movie sometime this summer.

The new video game sequel Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was being showcased at E3. It is a follow-up to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a title in the franchise that became so popular, it rejuvenated the series and was set up as a movie at CBS Films. »

Marvel's Doctor Strange: Chiwetel Ejiofor's role revealed

11 June 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chiwetel Ejiofor is to appear opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's Doctor Strange film. And now we know where he fits in.

Very slowly, the casting for the Doctor Strange movie is falling into place. The second of Marvel Studios' 2016 release, the film will star Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, with Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us From Evil, Sinister) directing.

A little while back, it was rumoured that Chiwetel Ejiofor was up for a role in the film. It increasingly seems like he's on board too, and Deadline has added a few more details.

Apparently, Ejiofor is in line to play Baron Mordo. The character was introduced as a villain originally in the comics, although Deadline notes that that may not be the case in the film. Rather, that Baron Mordo may be "an amalgamation of characters culled from Doctor Strange's mythology".

We already know that Tilda Swinton is playing The Ancient One, »

Has Chiwetel Ejiofor joined Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's Doctor Strange?

11 June 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

For a while now, there have been rumours that Marvel pursued Chiwetel Ejiofor for an undisclosed role in the upcoming Doctor Strange film alongside his 12 Years a Slave co-star, Tumblr boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch.

For those of you not in the know, Dr. Stephen Strange, a neuroseurgon, becomes involved in the mystical arts and starts jumping into alternate dimensions after a career-ending car accident. On his off days, he’s also the "Sorcerer Supreme," Earth’s protector against all mystical enemies. Sounds simple, yeah?

Though most expected that Ejiofor was up for the role of the Anicent one, director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) decided to gender-swap the casting – heck yes! – and invite Tilda Swinton into the Marvel Cinematic Universe for that particular role.

Deadline has now reported that Ejiofor is in talks to portray Karl Amadeus Mordo (a.k.a. Baron Mordon). In the comics, Mordo and Strange are both disciples of the Ancient One, »
