Just a few weeks after Transformers: The Last Knight rolled into theaters, Paramount is getting that Bumblebee prequel on the fast track. Today we got the news of a rumored mysterious working title, an official title (complete with colon, like all of today’s young adult franchises), and an extremely soon production start date. Like, very soon. Like, within a couple of weeks from now.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an undeniable sci-fi classic, the O.G. one-of-us-in-this-room-isn’t-human narrative, which is probably why it’s been remade so many, many times. The original 1954 novel The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney inspired the 1956 Don Siegel film, which was then remade in 1978, in 1993, and agin in 2007 with Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman (The Invasion). So it should come as no surprise that Warner Bros. is making plans to reboot the story for the modern era.
Hopefully this means the end of the disappointingly ubiquitous #WheresRey hashtag. After forgoing including Rey (the main character) in the cast of figurines Hasbro made for their new Star Wars Monopoly sets, the toy company finally gave in and made a Rey token – but only for certain countries, and nowhere to be found in American toy stores. Their excuse was that American consumers aren’t interested enough in a Rey token for Hasbro to bother with it, which prompted the predictable amount of furious online backlash. Now, it looks like Hasbro has come to its senses.
With the It movie coming to theaters sooner than we’re all probably prepared for, there’s already talk of the sequel. The films are spaced 30 years apart, much like the distinct sections of the book — the first set when all the main characters are children, and the second when they’ve all grown up, but haven’t grown out of their childhood traumas. The director of Part I, Andres Muschietti, recently revealed that he will definitely be back for Part II.
The Muppets have been mired in a sort of scandal recently, started by the firing of Steve Whitmore, who had been the voice and hands of Kermit the Frog since the untimely death of Jim Henson in 1990. Now, Henson’s son Brian Henson has offered some more insight into the matter.
Triple Frontier, once a promising thriller with a fabulous cast, has been shedding people like mad for the past few months. First, Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy exited the project, then Paramount dropped it, Netflix picked it up and Ben and Casey Affleck attached themselves in Tatum and Hardy’s places. But today Ben Affleck announced he’d be exiting the project.
When Steven Soderbergh came out of retirement it was like the whole world of film breathed a sigh of relief. Here’s a guy who can make something as weird as the circular narrative of Schizopolis, and then turn around and update a classic heist film for the modern era. Not to mention he brought us Magic Mike. Don’t ever forget that. Now that he’s touring around with his latest, Logan Lucky, news of a new Soderbergh project has been uncovered, and it sounds as unconventional as you’d expect.
Elysium is far from Neill Blomkamp’s best movie — I’ll even bet money that he made Chappie so that the general public would forget about how much they hated that movie were Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley beat each other up while wearing mechanical exoskeletons on a space station reserved only for rich people. But it’s human nature to want to improve upon your failures, and Blomkamp is, as far as we know, a human, so it’s no surprise that he’d want to have another crack at it.
The winner of this year’s Sundance Audience Award is coming to theaters this fall, with a trailer that looks absolutely amazing. Crown Heights, starring Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield and directed by Matt Ruskin, is the true story of the wrongful conviction of 18-year-old Colin Warner in 1982, and the fight to get him out of prison.
Felicity Jones, hot off her success as a new member of the Star Wars family last winter, has been lining up a string of new projects recently. She’ll be starring as the swan protagonist of Luca Guadagnino’s Swan Lake, and today brought the news that she’ll be portraying Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the R.B.G. biopic On the Basis of Sex.
