The Lego company started a whole 86 years ago and the famous plastic bricks have been encouraging creativity around the globe since 1947. The announcement of
The new adaptation of the iconic role-playing game has been in development for several years now at Paramount Pictures and Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures, and previously had Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie) in the director’s chair. Michael Gilio (Kwik Stop) remains on board as screenwriter.
The fantasy role-playing game was previously adapted for the big screen by New Line Cinema in 2000, and while the film proved to be a critical and commercial disaster, it did spawn a made for TV sequel in 2005 and a straight-to-video third instalment in 2011. Warner Bros. attempted to get a big-budget reboot off the ground in 2015, with the project subsequently moving to Paramount in
According to a new report, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are in talks with Paramount Pictures for their new Dungeons & Dragons movie. As many fans of the game will surely recall, there was a previous adaptation that was released in 2000, which starred Jeremy Irons and, to say the least, didn't go over terribly well. Goldstein and Daley most recently helmed the comedy Game Night, which went on to find relatively modest commercial success, to go along
Eddie Izzard, Bill Pullman and Us DJ Diplo have joined the comedy Covers from Focus Features and Working Title, the next film by Late Night director Nisha Ganatra.
Production is currently underway in Los Angeles. The new arrivals join previously announced Dakota Johnson, Tracee Ellis Ross and Ice Cube in the film, which takes place against the backdrop of the Hollywood music scene. Flora Greeson wrote the screenplay.
Izzard’s multi-pronged career of stand-up comedy, writing and political activism has encompassed many films, among them Victoria & Abdul, Valkyrie,
Sood’s challenge will be to lead their motion picture group ambitions, with an emphasis on developing original and existing IP projects and championing fresh voices. Sood will lead a motion picture group staff that includes longtime film executives Will Allegra and Rebecca Karch who have been upped to Senior Vice President and Vice President, respectively.
The Sood hiring seemed destined to happen at some point.
As per the site, Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein recently stepped down due to creative differences, echoing the fates of Seth Graheme-Smith (The Lego Batman Movie) and Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), both of whom were attached to direct the project at one point or another.
In addition to Muschietti coming on board to direct, WB and DC are also keen to bring in Bumblebee screenwriter Christina Hodson to pen a new script, having presumably been impressed with her work on next year’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
That means the studio has rejected the most recent draft of the script,
This past weekend, Todd Phillips, director of the upcoming Joker movie, gave fans their first glimpse of Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic Batman villain. From the first look, it looks as though Phoenix’s incarnation of The Joker is set to be much more traditional than the most recent big-screen take on the character by Jared Leto.
The Joker is one of the most iconic villains of all time, and the character has undergone several major changes on screen during his history. From Cesar Romero’s iconic turn as the character in the 1960’s to Leto’s divisive take on the character in the Dceu, there is always an excitement in the air when a new version of the character is set to make his debut.

And just to put it back out there, Tom Holland recently said this about his enthusiasm for a Spider-Man: Into the Multiverse movie featuring himself, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield.
"It would be amazing. It would be really, really cool, and it's something that the fans really want. So, whether Marvel and Sony decided to do that, it's up to them. It's not up to me. I can't walk in like, 'Kevin [Feige], this
15. “Batman and Robin” (1949) is just an abysmal experience, with a bad lead actor wearing a floppy-eared Batsuit. Though The Wizard, a villain original to this serial, is admittedly cool looking, it’s not enough to stem the boredom in this four-hour slog.
14. “Batman” (1943) gets points for novelty thanks to its hilariously over-the-top old fashioned World War II racism. But Batman’s first onscreen appearance lacks pretty much everything that would mark it as an engaging filmgoing experience today. It’s cool that a grandfather clock

Forbes reports that the Boy Wonder could “potentially” play a role in The Batman, with a casting announcement said to be coming soon. When it’ll arrive, we can’t say for sure, but while Batman and Robin are traditionally inseparable in the comics, in the movies, it’s a different story.
