On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (May 18th, 2016) Kristian Harloff, Jon Schnepp, Mark Ellis discuss the following:
-Jon Berg and Geoff Johns appointed head of DC Films after Batman v Superman fallout
-New Ghostbusters trailer released
-Ryan Coogler says Black Panther is most personal movie to date
-Tetris movie in development
-Shane Black talks Predator timeline and hints at Arnold’s appearance
According to a report from THR, DC and Warner Bros are shaking things up for their film division, appointing Jon Berg and Geoff Johns to co-run DC Films in an attempt to course-correct their comic book universe and create a dedicated division for the films. The move is part of a broader refinement of executive roles at Warners, which has suffered since its disappointing debut of Batman v Superman. Instead of a range of movies to oversee, executives will be charged with managing “genre streams" while reporting to Warner Bros.
Sony Pictures has released the newest Ghostbusters trailer for director Paul Feig’s upcoming reboot. The redo stars Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones as a team of women who band together in order to fend off paranormal activity in New York City, becoming the city’s only hope when a slew of ghosts descend upon the Big Apple.
Marvel’s Black Panther movie is quickly becoming one of the most talked about adaptations to date, what with Chadwick Boseman’s scene stealing performance in Captain America: Civil War, along with casting confirmations that Michael B Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o will be joining the cast. Now, director Ryan Coogler is adding to the hype, telling Fast Company in an interview that Black Panther will be his most personal film to date.
