Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes has enlisted two new human characters in recent months, to be played by Woody Harrelson and Gabriel Chavarria. So it seems only fair to bring another ape in as well. Steve Zahn has boarded the next installment of the sci-fi franchise as an ape, joining Andy Serkis as Caesar.

Vin Diesel in Inhumans

If you’ve murdered someone or have a treasure hidden somewhere, the last person you probably want to tell is Vin Diesel. The actor just can’t seem to keep many secrets to himself, especially when it comes to future projects that he may be doing at Marvel Studios.

For the past year, Diesel has been doing a little more than teasing that in addition to his voice role as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, he might have something to do with the forthcoming film The Inhumans. The project was recently rumored to be in danger of getting axed, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, especially if we continue to believe Diesel’s pretty obvious hints. Read More »

Michael B Jordan as Boba Fett

Due the box-office fallout and reported behind-the-scenes trouble on the reboot of Fantastic Four, director Josh Trank ended up being removed from the next installment of the Star Wars Story spin-off series of films. The film was rumored to focus on Boba Fett, but it has now been pushed back in favor of Phil Lord & Chris Miller’s spin-off following Han Solo instead.

However, that doesn’t mean that Disney has given up the hunt for someone to step up and replace Trank in the director’s chair for the project being developed by Simon Kinberg. Reportedly, Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray (who just signed on to direct Furious 8) was being considered for the Star Wars Story, and along with that, he said there’s a possibility of seeing Michael B. Jordan as Boba Fett.

Eddie Murphy in A Thousand Words

Eddie Murphy gave us some of the best-loved comedies of the ’80s, including Beverly Hills Cop and Coming to America, and for that we’ll always have a soft spot for him. But the past several years have been a rough time for Eddie Murphy fans. He hasn’t been seen onscreen since 2012’s A Thousand Words, and before that he was mostly starring in stuff like Imagine That and Meet Dave.

Maybe his next project will be the one to turn things around. Murphy is teaming with Brian Grazer for what the producer calls a “raw,” “tour-de-force” project, to be distributed by Netflix. Read about the Eddie Murphy Netflix project after the jump.

Update: A source who spoke with Deadline cautions that the project is “too premature to announce at this point in time; that details weren’t even locked down from a project or contract standpoint.” Original story follows. Read More »
