Jack Black Nacho Libre micronations movie

One of the few directors on the Spider-Man short list has picked a new project. It’s Jared Hess, the director behind Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre. Hess’s quirky filmmaking style seemed like an odd a match for the big budget superhero film; now he’s going to do a film that seems much more in his comfort zone. He’s even bringing along an old friend.

Hess has cast Jack Black in a film called Micronations, a comedy about a man who rises to a position of prominence among the odd world of do-it-yourself countries, small areas which exist and operate independently of the United States. This is a real thing. The script was written by the team behind New Girl, and you can read more about the Micronations movie below. Read More »

At a press conference for San Andreas (coming to theaters later this month), Dwayne Johnson revealed that we’ll definitely see him in Fast and Furious 8, and we may still get more Hobbs action in his own movie too.
