Sony and Mattel’s Barbie movie has hit snag after snag pretty much since its inception. At first, Diablo Cody was signed on to write the screenplay before tossing out her version in favor of competing three other writers against each other. Sony chose the winner and Amy Schumer joined the film to star (after a few touch-ups to the screenplay), but today she announced that, due to scheduling problems, she won’t be playing the iconic doll after all.
Though it felt kind of wrong, when Carrie Fisher died in December a lot of us wondered how the Star Wars movies would weather her loss. Had she finished shooting all her scenes? (She had, at least for Episode 8.) How integral to the plot of Episodes 8 and 9 was Leia going to be? Would the story need to be changed to accommodate for her absence? Some wondered if her likeness would be Tarkin’d onto a body stand-in for the final movie, which felt wrong even to think about. (It’s not happening, thankfully.) Lucasfilm has a lot to consider after losing one of its biggest stars, but it sounds like none of The Last Jedi is going to be changed because of her death.
Nicolas Winding Refn is moving forward on his crazy new spy movie The Avenging Silence, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any other projects in the works. Refn will be producing Maniac Cop, a remake of the 1988 cult classic directed by William Lustig, which starts shooting this year. Refn won’t be directing the new version — that honor goes to John Hyams, producer and director of Syfy’s zombie apocalypse show Z Nation.
Richard Linklater is about to get behind the camera again this year to film Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, an adaptation of a 2012 bestselling novel about a restless Seattle housewife who becomes a recluse and disappears right before a big family vacation, prompting her husband and daughter to go looking for her. Cate Blanchett will play Bernadette, and today it was announced that Kristen Wiig is in talks to play Audrey, Bernadette’s nightmare neighbor.
Last week, the Internet entered into something of a panic when it was announced that Niki Caro, the director of the live-action Mulan remake, didn’t have any songs planned for the movie. For those of you who were bereft at the thought of no “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” army training/dance number, don’t freak out yet. While there aren’t any songs in the script right now, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any at all.
Sony’s Spiderverse is steadily growing. With plans for at least one Venom movie announced last week, the wheel of spinoffs has been set in motion. Today, the studio announced it was working on a team-up movie with heroes Silver Sable and Black Cat, with a script by Chris Yost, who’s one of the writers of Marvel’s upcoming Thor: Ragnarok.
Somehow, Transformers: The Last Knight is going to show us how our favorite robots in disguise have been around Earth since the Middle Ages, and even how they led King Arthur’s armies into battle. (Has anyone told Michael Bay yet that King Arthur wasn’t real? No? Okay, just checking.) It’s sure to be quite the experience, and as Bay’s last go-round with the Transformers universe, he’s making sure to fit just about everything into this movie.
Brie Larson is currently scheduled to play two female superstars in the near future: the first is actual superhero Captain Marvel, in Marvel’s first-ever female-led superhero movie, and the second, announced today, is Victoria Woodhull, the first-ever female candidate for U.S. President and your new favorite historical person.
One thing’s for sure about the new Ghost in the Shell movie: There’s gonna be a whole lot of cyber. Cybercrime, cyber-people, there all is cyber. The plot hinges around, among other things, an android with a human mind investigating a string of brain-hacking crimes that leads her to a bunch of realizations about the nature of consciousness and humanity. Ghost in the Shell imagines a world where the line between human and machine is blurred almost to the point of nonexistence, with corporations selling body-augmentation technology amongst colleagues at fancy dinners. That’s where the opening of the movie finds Major, played by Scarlett Johansson, surveilling a corporate meeting that goes terribly wrong.
Julia Ducournau’s French cannibal coming-of-age movie (no, I didn’t think I’d ever type that phrase either) Raw has been making waves ever since its Cannes debut last year, and a lot of those waves happen to be those of nausea. The film reportedly features so many scenes of gory flesh-eating that it caused audience members to feel physically ill and faint at numerous festival screenings. Now that it’s out in theaters in a limited release, one theater in Los Angeles has a solution: personal barf bags.
