According to an exclusive from Variety, Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 helmer Denis Villeneuve is in early talks to direct Legendary’s Dune reboot. It was back before the Thanksgiving holiday when Legendary closed a deal with the Frank Herbert estate for the rights to his iconic novel; which would grant the production company the rights to a new film as well as for TV-based projects . A release date for the new Dune movie has yet to be set.
Lucasfilm made the gutsy move to craft an entire movie around a genuine suicide mission that actually ended in the deaths of all the major characters. But that wasn’t always the case. As Edwards revealed on the Empire podcast, the ending of Rogue One was significantly different early on in the development process and that the first version the main characters didn't die but everyone from Lucasfilm were on board for it.
BUY OR SELL
The first teaser trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi sequel Blade Runner 2049 landed well with fans of the series as well as generating interest from the casual movie-goer. Now, many fans are wondering if the sequel will retain a similar R rating as the first movie.
According to a report from THR, Splendid Films have acquired the German rights to Expendables 4, the third sequel that was previously distributed by Lionsgate. The film is expected to begin development with a potential release date to be determined in 2018.
In a recent interview with CinemaBlend, Martin Scorsese was talking about his latest movie Silence when talk turned to his next movie, The Irishman. Based on the Charles Brandt novel “I Heard You Paint Houses,” it was revealed that the movie would included Robert De Niro and Al Pacino playing both their younger and older selves. Scorsese then confirmed that he would utilize de-aging technology in order to pull this all off.
A new trailer has been released for War on Everyone, the new movie from John Michael McDonagh that stars Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Pena. Skarsgard and Pena play Terry and Bob, crooked cops who try to blackmail and frame every criminal they encounter, but they uncover a larger conspiracy when they try and pull one over on a strip-club manager. The movie is set for release on February 3rd, 2017.
