According to producer and co-writer Simon Kinberg, he still believes there is room for a Fantastic Four sequel. Speaking to Den of Geek at the junket for X-Men: Apocalypse, Kinberg made no secret of his feelings about the 2015 film and its dramatic departure from the comics, saying they want to make a new, brighter sequel to Fantastic Four.
 
Joe Pytka, the director of the 1996 film Space Jam, unleashed some strong words in opposition to the newly announced sequel for his original movie. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Pytka thinks Warner Bros should stop with the sequel, saying: Don’t do it. It’s doomed. Space Jam 2 will be directed by Justin Lin with LeBron James tapped to star. The movie will be written by Bad Words screenwriter Andrew Dodge. No release date has been set.

Derek Connolly, the co-writer of Jurassic World, has been hired to work on Pacific Rim 2, the sequel to Legendary’s Jaegars vs. monsters pic directed by Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro remains involved with the project as one of the producers but is not directing the sequel; that role went to Steven DeKnight, the showrunner of season 1 of Netflix’s Daredevil. The most recent drafts of the script have been worked on by del Toro, Zak Penn and Jon Spaihts. While plot details are being kept under wraps, THR’s report mentions that it is unclear if Connolly is doing a page-one rewrite or simply a polish. 
 
Variety is reporting that Brenda Chapman, who directed the Academy Award-winning animated film Brave, will make her live-action directing debut in Come Away, a prequel to Alice in Wonderland AND Peter Pan. The premise of the movie supposes that Alice and Peter were brother and sister who had to deal with their older brother perishing in an accident and their parents’ despair over the tragedy — leading them ultimately journey to Wonderland for Alice and Neverland for Peter.
 
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the action-thriller The Accountant with Warrior helmer Gavin O’Connor directing Ben Affleck in a story about a mild-mannered accountant who moonlights as a lethal assassin. The film also stars Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow. The Accountant opens in theaters on October 14th.
