THR is reporting that months ahead of the opening of Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. is teaming up with Margot Robbie to produce and star in an untitled spin-off movie with Harley Quinn and a number of DC’s female heroes and villains. Thought details are under wraps, THR mentions names such as Batgirl and Birds of Prey as possible additions to the movie. 
 
Deadline is reporting that Martin Scorsese’s mob picture The Irishman has landed at STX Entertainment in a huge deal for international rights that represents a record for the Cannes Film Festival. Paramount will retain domestic rights on the movie, which reunites Scorsese with Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, as well as adding Al Pacino with Scorsese for the first time in their storied careers.

Paramount Pictures took to their official Transformers Instagram account yesterday in order to announce the official title for the upcoming fifth entry in the series: Transformers: The Last Knight. The Last Knight cast is confirmed to include Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Michael Bay will return as director with a script written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Black Hawk Down’s Ken Nolan. 
 
The latest TV spot was released for The Legend of Tarzan, giving us another good look at the return of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes. The movie stars Alexander Skarsgard, Margot Robbie, Christophe Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson; with a script by Craig Brewer and directed by Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts director David Yates. 
 
Although Disney’s The Jungle Book continues to break all sorts of records at the box office, recently crossing the 800 million world-wide total, Warners Bros.’ own Jungle Book Origins movie directed by Andy Serkis is still very much happening. Serkis recently spoke to Vulture about the differences between his Jungle Book movie and Disney’s with Serkis saying his version is darker than the recent movie.
 
During an interview with Fandango to promote X-Men Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer revealed he actually pitched the idea of a female Wolverine movie based off of Wolverine’s clone AKA Laura Kinney - AKA X-23. It was suggested along with his idea for an X-Force movie. Singer wanted to keep the “essence” of Wolverine alive knowing that Jackman would be departing the part after 9 total appearances.
