‘Ghostbusters’ Sequel Moves to Summer 2021

‘Ghostbusters’ Sequel Moves to Summer 2021
Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” a sequel to the blockbuster comedy, will hit theaters next summer. The movie is now expected to debut on June 11, 2021 — exactly 37 years after the original.

Like nearly every film slated for 2020, Sony has hopscotched the release date for “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” multiple times during the pandemic. It was originally scheduled to open in July before it was pushed to March 5, 2021.

Sony also announced a sequel to “Don’t Breathe” will premiere on Aug. 13, 2021. Rodo Sayagues is making his directorial debut with the horror follow-up. He also co-wrote the script with his longtime collaborator Fede Alvarez. “Don’t Breathe” became a commercial hit when it bowed in 2017, earning $157 million at the box office from a $10 million budget.

Jason Reitman directed “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” which follows the events of 1984’s “Ghostbusters” and 1989’s “Ghostbusters II.” The upcoming installment picks up 30 years later and centers on a family that moves to a small town. There,

Jared Leto to Return as The Joker in ‘Justice League’ Snyder Cut

Jared Leto to Return as The Joker in ‘Justice League’ Snyder Cut
Jared Leto, who starred as The Joker in 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” will return to play the clown prince of crime in Zack Snyder’s cut of “Justice League,” according to an individual with knowledge of the project.

The so-called “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” will be a 4-hour-long, episodic presentation on HBO Max, created with a budget of around $70 million. And while initial reporting held that no additional filming would occur and new material would largely consist of special effects work, that clearly has changed.

Justice League” underwent a lot of changes during its original production, most notably when Snyder abruptly exited the movie during post-production, just months ahead of its November 2017 release date. “Avengers” director Joss Whedon was subsequently hired to “finish” the film for Snyder in time for that date, but instead he ended up overseeing extensive reshoots intended to drastically change the story — again, while still gunning for its original release date.

The new version of Mira Nair’s “Monsoon Wedding” stage musical will now open in India, followed by Singapore, in 2021, the director has revealed.

The stage adaptation of Nair’s 2001 Venice Golden Lion winning film was due to open this summer in the U.K. at the Leeds Playhouse and London’s Roundhouse immediately after, but the spread of the coronavirus pandemic scuppered those plans.

Speaking at a virtual masterclass during the ongoing Busan Film Festival, Nair said, “We are going to open next year, November 2021. First in India, and then in Singapore, and Dubai, perhaps, and then bring it to London and the United States.”

“It’s a wonderful musical with music from Vishal Bhardwaj, one of our great composers, 21 new songs,” said Nair. “It is very, very close to the film in spirit, but it’s a stage musical. And that’s the something that I have been

Borat Sails Past U.K. Houses of Parliament in Mankini, But Londoners Remain Unimpressed

Borat Sails Past U.K. Houses of Parliament in Mankini, But Londoners Remain Unimpressed
It’s not every day you see a giant maskini sail past the U.K.’s Houses of Parliament.

Amazon Prime Video pulled out all the stops in London on Thursday to promote “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” the sequel to the 2006 hit that bows Friday, with a surprise stunt along the River Thames featuring an inflatable, lounging and exceedingly hairy Borat wearing a surgical mask — and nothing else (video above). The small barge carrying the 40-foot float displayed a sign that read “Wear Mask. Save Live,” and traveled from Tower Bridge to the London Eye and back again over the course of an hour.

Amazon, which picked up the film in late September, has had just three weeks to hype up Sacha Baron Cohen’s sequel “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.” And while the British comedian is well

Deluxe Appoints Longtime Netflix Exec Anna Lee Chief Strategy Officer
Deluxe, the provider of digital and cloud-based distribution services for studios and production companies, appointed Anna Lee — a 12-year veteran of Netflix — to the newly created role of chief strategy officer.

Lee reports directly to Deluxe CEO Cyril Drabinsky. She will be responsible for developing, communicating, executing, and sustaining strategic initiatives for the company.

After years of perfecting her screen image as Black Widow from those Marvel Avengers you might have heard of, Scarlett Johansson is heading back into some oddball A24-approved genre-blending shenanigans in an indie thriller/coming-of-age/female-empowerment picture that I simply have to see. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Johansson will produce and star in the upcoming Bride, which boasts a sterling roster of talent and an absolutely wild premise.
