It’s Die Hard with fairies ... and a walk on part for the author in Artemis Fowl film

After 25 million sales of his Artemis Fowl books, Eoin Colfer tells of his own film debut

He is a former primary school teacher whose Artemis Fowl fantasy novels have sold more than 25 million copies in 44 languages. Now Ireland’s former children’s laureate, Eoin Colfer, will delight fans worldwide by appearing as an extra in Artemis Fowl, Disney’s forthcoming feature film directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh and starring Dame Judi Dench.

Describing his one scene, filmed in the north of Ireland, Colfer said: “I walked across a field with a lot of other people. It wasn’t too taxing – although I did manage to get it wrong a few times. The only direction they gave was: ‘Walk across the field and don’t look at the camera.’ I must have looked at the camera about 20 times. I have a new respect for actors.”

Joe Johnston in talks to direct Josh Gad in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids reboot

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Joe Johnston is in talks with Disney to direct a reboot of his 1989 comedy Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, which has Josh Gad (Frozen) attached to star.

The new film, titled Shrunk, was first revealed back in May of this year, and will see Josh Gad taking on the role of Adam Szalinski, the now-adult version of Wayne Szalinski’s (Rick Moranis) son, who found himself blown up to an enormous size in the 1992 sequel Honey, I Blew Up the Kid.

Johnston, whose credits include the likes of Rocketeer, Jumanji, Jurassic Park III and Captain America: The First Avenger, made his directorial debut on the 1989 film, which proved to be a huge hit at the box office upon its release, grossing $223 million worldwide (over twelve times its $18 million budget).

Shrunk will extend Gad’s ties with Disney, the actor having worked with the studio on Frozen,

‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ Director in Talks to Return for Reboot Starring Josh Gad (Exclusive)

‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ Director in Talks to Return for Reboot Starring Josh Gad (Exclusive)
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” director Joe Johnston is in negotiations to helm Disney’s upcoming reboot of the film franchise, “Shrunk,” with Josh Gad in talks to star.

Gad pitched the story idea to Disney earlier this year, and the studio jumped on board the idea of reviving the classic 1989 pic starring Rick Moranis. “Shrunk” will mark the third sequel following the original film, with “Honey, I Blew Up the Kid” and direct-to-video “Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves” bowing in 1992 and 1997, respectively. Johnston was not involved with either film.

The studio met with other directors but felt bringing Johnston back was a perfect fit for all involved. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing through their Mandeville Films and Television banner, with Todd Rosenberg penning the script.

In the original film, Moranis plays Wayne Szalinski, a scientist and father who accidentally shrinks his teenage son and daughter, along with the two brothers from next door,

Spider-Man, Spicer and Splashy First-Looks: Everything We’re Looking For at D23

  • Variety
As if Disney hasn’t owned enough weekends this year at the box office, the biennial D23 Expo will light up Anaheim, Calif. over the next three days to celebrate the content monolith.

From a new Netflix-competing streaming platform to scores of movie and series reveals — along with a few hot controversies to confront — plenty of news will be spilling out of the massive convention center dressed in mouse ears, superhero capes and stormtrooper garb.

One bullet already dodged — an early Friday panel surrounding “Dancing With the Stars,” which airs on Disney-owned ABC. In the days leading up to D23’s kickoff, social media snowballed with backlash against ABC’s decision to cast former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on its latest season. While Spicer’s inclusion could well provide a short-term ratings fix for the declining dancing show, the amount of negative press and allegations of political

Nickelodeon is getting dark.

The kids network released the first teaser for its upcoming revival of the classic ’90s series “Are You Afraid of the Dark,” and the new version looks a fright more more sinister than the original.

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids Reboot In The Works With Josh Gad

Gad damnit, our Disney overlords will leave no stone unturned, no matter how unnaturally small they may be. Yep, that’s right, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids is getting the reboot treatment, with everyone’s favorite obnoxious snowman, Josh Gad, set to star! While only independently confirmed by a writer at /Film at the moment, this possibility was listed among many potential reboots to be made for Disney Plus, the new streaming service you’ll be forced to buy at some point.

In a twist, this project seems destined for a wide distribution theatrical release, not a simple streaming-only debut. On top of that, it’s simply going to be called Shrunk. Also, it doesn’t seem to be a full reboot. Well, not exactly anyway. It’s currently being called a “legacyquel,” which is, uh, a word I have not heard before.

Disney just announced a batch of new release dates for movies up through 2027.

This includes release dates for 3 new Star Wars movies, all four of James Cameron's Avatar sequels, The New Mutants and much more.

Following the dramatic success of Avengers: Endgame thus far, The Walt Disney Studios' 2019 summer slate includes Guy Ritchie's Aladdin on May 24, Dark Phoenix, the last of the proper Fox X-Men movies, on June 7, Pixar's Toy Story 4 on June 21, Stuber, a buddy cop comedy from Fox, on July 12 and Jon Favreau's The Lion King on July 19.

‘Gambit’ and Three More Untitled Fox/Marvel Films Removed From Disney Slate

Amid a slew of release slate announcements, Disney removed four Fox/Marvel projects from its list of upcoming films, including a planned “X-Men” spinoff, “Gambit,” starring Channing Tatum.

The slate removal signals the end of 20 years of Fox films based around the “X-Men,” dating back to the original 2000 blockbuster that made Hugh Jackman into a star with his performance as Wolverine. 12 films in the franchise have been released, including the Oscar-nominated “Logan” and the “Deadpool” spinoff films. The series will conclude with the already-produced horror spinoff “The New Mutants,” which Disney moved from August 2019 to April 2020.
