Disney Sets ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Scribe Adele Lim & ‘Moana’ Producer Osnat Shurer For Animation Pic

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Disney is in development on an untitled fantasy-adventure animation film with Crazy Rich Asians screenwriter Adele Lim and Moana producer Osnat Shurer.

Disney story artists Paul Briggs (Frozen) and Dean Wellins (Zootopia) are attached to make their directorial debuts on the project which is being set up at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Plot is being kept under wraps but I understand the movie has an Asian element running through it and a female protagonist. It is a theatrical feature rather than one for Disney’s upcoming streaming service and the team is currently going through the casting process for the lead.

Disney development exec Shurer was previously head of Pixar’s short films output. She then produced Disney’s Oscar-nominated hit Moana, which crossed $640M at the worldwide box office. It sounds like this new movie could have some thematic similarities to that film, which followed the strong-willed daughter of a Polynesian village chief.

Mirror Master Will Undergo Some Changes When He Appears In The Flash

One of the most exciting additions to season three of The Flash is the villainous Mirror Master. A member of The Rogues, fans have been wondering for a while now why he’s never shown up in The CW series, but when he does appear (played by Star-Crossed‘s Grey Damon), it sounds like he’ll be a little different to his comic book counterpart.

The Flash executive producer Todd Helbing explained in a recent interview that this version of Mirror Master is going to be a metahuman rather than someone who wields a special gun which allows him to travel between this and the mirror dimension.

“[Mirror Master] doesn’t use the [mirror] gun. He’s a true meta, but he’s not necessarily warping into other dimensions.”

It almost sounds as if the villain’s powers have also been vastly altered, but despite how trippy The Flash has often been, you

The Flash Season 3: Grey Damon Cast as Mirror Master

  • TVfanatic
Another famous Rogue villain is making his way to The Flash Season 3.

If you thought the best Rogues had already come and gone, you were wrong!

Grey Damon will become Sam Scudder aka Mirror Master for The Flash Season 3 Episode 4. Does that mean he'll be a one and done character?

We'll have to wait and watch the show to find out whether Mirror Master will be in more than one installment, but even more interesting is whether or not he'll be fighting The Flash or Kid Flash.

We don't know yet how long it will take to set the wrongs of Flashpoint right...or even if that means we won't still have two flashes fighting the forces of evil on the streets of Central City afterward anyway!

Sam Scudder is a pretty well known guy in the DC canon. Real comic book fans were surprised he was left behind during the initial two seasons.

The Flash Season 3: Meet Caitlin's Mom!

  • TVfanatic
Susan Walters is no stranger to The CW, nor is she stranger to playing moms.

Walters has appeared on The Vampire Diaries as Tyler's mom Carol, starred on the The CW's short-lived Star-Crossed and appeared on MTV's Teen Wolf as Lydia's mom, Natalie.

Now she's joining The Flash Season 3 as Caitlin Snow's mom, with the potential to recur.

Walters will be playing Carla Tannhauser, a world class bioengineer and CEO of a major research company. Of course!

Did we expect Caitlin to fall far from the genetic tree?

Unfortunately, their similarities may stop there.

The relationship is icy at best, with Caitlin considering her mother cold and withholding.

In return, Carla thinks her daughter is rebellious and ungrateful. 

If we're going to choose sides before meeting Carla, I'm going to have to side with Caitlin on this one. How could any mother consider the prim and proper, hardworking woman that
