DC's The New Gods Movie Brings in Chasing Mavericks Writer

DC's The New Gods Movie Brings in Chasing Mavericks Writer
When news broke last week that A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay was going to direct The New Gods for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, it was revealed that the studio was searching for a screenwriter, and they have now found one. Writer Kario Salem has been tapped to write the script, working closely with Ava DuVernay to craft the narrative for this story, which will not be part of Warner Bros.' Dceu lineup.

M. Night Shyamalan thriller series set for Apple TV

Joseph Baxter Feb 28, 2018

Apple’s scripted television endeavour will soon include a thriller series from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan...

M. Night Shyamalan may have just endured the official cancellation of his secretly-post-apocalyptic Fox television series, Wayward Pines, but he certainly didn’t have to wait long for his television hopes to rebound. That’s because he’s just closed a deal with Apple that will see him create – and direct – a yet-to-be-titled, thriller series.

Shyamalan’s deal with Apple has yielded a 10-episode straight-to-series order for the television project, teaming him with writer and executive producer Tony Basgallop, of Berlin Station, 24: Legacy, 24: Live Another Day and What Remains fame, to create a mystery series, described vaguely as a “psychological thriller.” Interestingly enough, Shyamalan’s thriller project will definitely distinguish itself in terms of format, since – contrary to genre convention – it will manifest as a half-hour series,

Scarface Remake Brings Back Director Antoine Fuqua

Universal Pictures has entered negotiations with director Antoine Fuqua to take the helm of their long-awaited Scarface remake, once again. The filmmaker had previously been attached to direct, but he backed out in late January over scheduling conflicts with The Equalizer 2. Ironically, Diego Luna had been attached to star at the same time as Fuqua was leaving, and now the actor's involvement is uncertain, since the changing production timeline may result in scheduling conflicts for the actor.

Last February, Universal Pictures set an August 10, 2018 release date, while bringing in the Coen Brothers to rewrite the script. We reported in May that Suicide Squad and Bright director David Ayer was in talks to take the helm, but we reported in July that he has backed away from the project due to creative differences. David Ayer's exit from the project was the last update we had until now, with this latest report

Variety reports that discussions are underway for Fuqua to direct, but no official offer is on the table yet.

The latest script was written by Ayer, Jonathan Herman, and Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. The film will be produced by Dylan Clark for his Dylan Clark Productions. [link
