It’s been years since we’ve heard about any movement for the long in development Top Gun 2. But now, Maverick himself has buzzed the tower with a definitive update. Speaking with Sunrise 7 news in Australia promoting his latest, The Mummy, Tom Cruise went on record to confirm that Top Gun 2 is actually happening, with Cruise saying they’re probably going to start filming in the next year.

According to Deadline, Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes is in early talks to direct Disney’s live-action Pinocchio from a script by Rogue One writer Chris Weitz. Mendes was also in talks to a to direct the live-action adaptation of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach for Disney however, there’s no mention of that project so it’s unclear if Mendes is still attached to direct.

According to a report from Variety, Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman has exited as director of Justice League Dark; DC’s Films’ adaptation of its dark Justice League team up that consists of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. Sources for Variety say Liman left the project over scheduling issues for Lionsgate’s Chaos Walking starring Daisy Ridley; which just received a greenlight.

20th Century Fox has unveiled two new War for the Planet of the Apes TV spots online. Director Matt Reeves returns for the follow-up, which picks up a few years after the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, where an all-out war between the humans and the apes is underway. Caesar, played by Andy Serkis, sets out to exact revenge against The Colonel, played by Woody Harrelson, who has amassed a massive human army at a compound deep in the snow.

According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o are set to star in a new movie for director Ava DuVernay after a tweet featuring the two went viral. This all happened after Rihanna and Nyong’o were pictured together at the Miu Miu fashion show back in 2014, which then turned into a twitter sensation when people started joking that a movie should be made of the two. EW says that the internet-created project was pitched to studios at this year’s Cannes film festival, with Netflix coming out on top after a very aggressive bid.

Sony Pictures announced yesterday that they have finally slated Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels reboot for a June 7th, 2019, release. Banks will also produce via her Universal-based Brownstone Productions with her husband and producing partner, Max Handelman. Soon after the news broke, the Tracking Board reported that Narcos’ scribes Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard have been brought in to rewrite the script and that Hidden Figures and Moonlight star Janelle Monae is at the top of the studio’s wish list to play one of the angels.
