-Mel Gibson in early talks to helm Suicide Squad 2
-Joe Carnahan to write and direct remake of The Raid
-Opening This Week – Cure for Wellness
-Jurassic World 2 registers websites that might reveal plot of movie

THR has learned that WB and DC Films are “courting” Mel Gibson to direct Suicide Squad 2. Though the report comes as a surprise, both sides are just in “early in talks” and no offer has been made. THR’s sources say that Gibson is currently familiarizing himself with the material but the studio is not being passive at all – Variety also reports that in addition to Gibson, Warners has met with — or is planning to meet with — Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, Daniel Espinosa, director of the upcoming Life, and Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine.
XYZ Films posted a video to Twitter in which actor Frank Grillo and director Joe Carnahan announced work on a remake of The Raid. Based on 2011’s Indonesian action series directed by Gareth Evans, the original was released in America and titled The Raid: Redemption. Shortly after the video posted, Carnahan took to Twitter to clarify that he is directing and producing the project, also revealing that Evans has given “his full blessing” and is also onboard as a producer. A release date has not been set.
OPENING THIS WEEK
BUY OR SELL
Production is now underway on the JA Bayona directed sequel to Jurassic World, thanks to a Twitter announcement by producer Frank Marshall. Now, thanks to the super-sleuths over at the fan site Jurassic Outpost (via a report from MovieWeb), it appears Universal Pictures has registered some new website domains that could give us an idea of the plot for the movie. The studio addresses registered include: IslaNubarRescueMission.com, AllCreaturesHaveRights.com, and AllCreaturesHaveRights.org. The Jurassic World sequel will see the return of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard and is set to hit theatres on June 22, 2018.
Director James Mangold shared a new clip from the upcoming Logan and it features footage of Laura, aka X-23, that shows a bit of her backstory and the experimentation that led to her becoming a powerful mutant. Set in the near future, Logan follows a world weary Wolverine as he cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. Little else is known about the film’s plot but that will all change as Logan will soon hit theatres on March 3, 2017.
A new clip from Kong: Skull Island has been revealed by Yahoo and it features the biggest connection to Godzilla thus far. The footage features John Goodman‘s character, Bill Randa, being grilled by Samuel Jackson’s Lt. Col. Packard about the real reason they’re all on Skull Island; with Goodman’s Randa character offering up some details that are the strongest connection to Godzilla thus far. Kong Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and John C. Reilly and hits theatres on March 10, 2017.
