Third Cloverfield Film Could Be Going Right To Netflix

Rumors around Park City, however, indicate there may be a reason for that. Following their acquisition of the international rights to Alex Garland’s “Annihilation” from Paramount, it seems the pair may be doing something even bigger with Netflix rumored to be closing a deal to acquire nearly all the worldwide rights to Julius Onah’s “God Particle” – better known as the third “Cloverfield” film.

Dark Horizons has the full story.

I really liked 10 Cloverfield Lane, so I’m all in.

John Cena in talks to star as Duke Nukem

John Cena is getting ready to shoot up some aliens.

Hollywood Reporter has the full scoop.

The wrestler-turned-actor is in negotiations to star in Duke Nukem, a big-screen adaptation set up at Paramount of the popular video game franchise featuring a politically incorrect action hero.

Platinum Dunes, the company run by Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, will produce.

No director is on board at this stage. A search for a writer will begin soon to develop a script for what is intended to be a starring vehicle for Cena.

To me this is a terrible idea, no one can see him.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Screenwriters to Direct DC’s Flash Movie

Hollywood Reporter has the scoop.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are staying in the superhero game.

The screenwriting duo behind Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming are moving over to DC and are in talks to direct Warner Bros.’ Flashpoint movie, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The studio declined to comment.

The film will star Ezra Miller, reprising his role as Barry Allen/The Flash from Justice League. The Flash solo film has previously had two other directors attached. Dope filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa left in October 2016 over “creative differences.” His exit followed that of Seth Grahame-Smith, who had written the script and was attached to helm.

Daley and Goldstein were largely known for penning comedies such as Horrible Bosses and writing and directing 2015’s Vacation before last year’s Spider-Man, which earned more than $880 million worldwide. They also directed Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams’ Game Night, a film that blends the thriller/comedy genres and is set to open Feb. 23.

With Spider-Man: Homecoming being so insanely awesome, this is actually great news.

Gamespot has the full story.

There’s a changing of the guard happening at Warner Bros. and DC Films. It was revealed in December that Jon Berg and Geoff Johns were being replaced as the heads of the DC Entertainment films division, and now the new head has been announced.

Producer Walter Hamada, whose credits include It, The Conjuring, and Annabelle, is stepping in to guide the future of DC properties on the big screen. The move, which was first reported by Variety, comes after Justice League failed to meet its critical or box office hype in late 2017, leaving many wondering what the future of the DC movie universe would look like.

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
