Will Ferrell 100-Year-Old Man Movie

If you’ve wandered around a bookstore (yes, they still exist!) over the past couple of years, you’ve probably seen a copy of Jonas Jonasson‘s novel The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared in the best-seller section. The 2012 book was already adapted into a Swedish movie back in 2014, but now American studios are catching up, and CBS Films has tapped Will Ferrell to play the lead role in a new version of the story.

Lex Luthor cut from Justice League

Jesse Eisenberg‘s manic portrayal of Lex Luthor was one of the most divisive aspects of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but he’s Lex Luthor. Regardless of fan response, one of DC’s most recognizable characters has to appear in a Justice League film…doesn’t he? Well, not necessarily.

A new rumor claims that, despite previous confirmation from Warner Bros. that he’d have a supporting role in the superhero sequel, Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor has been cut from Justice League in the wake of all of the recent changes to the film.

Black Samurai TV show

Starz isn’t on the same level as a powerhouse premium service like HBO, but they’re still one of the big players in that space, and they’ve recently made waves by catering to underserved audiences with shows like Power and Outlander (not to mention the splash they made this year with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods). Now they’re looking to get into the blaxploitation genre with a TV adaptation of Black Samuari, and they’ve found the perfect person to star: Common, who kicked some serious ass in John Wick: Chapter 2.

Terminator 2 - Billy Idol as T-1000

This year doesn’t mark a special anniversary for Terminator 2: Judgment Day, but since James Cameron’s action sequel is coming back to theaters in 3D, there’s a little bit of chatter about the 1991 film making the rounds as publicity for the re-release builds. That includes Robert Patrick, who played the liquid metal villain T-1000 in the sequel, discussing his history with the role, which resulted in the actor revealing that he wasn’t the person who was originally cast to play the part. Instead, that role was supposed to go to none other than rock star Billy Idol. Wait, what? Read More »

son of shaft

The new Shaft movie won’t be another reboot. In fact, it’s going to be a family affair. The newly titled Son of Shaft has cast Jessie T. Usher in the title role, but he’s not coming alone. He’s going to have a little help from his father. And his great uncle. Because it seems that previous Shaft actors Samuel L.

For years, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been speculating about which of their on-screen heroes will survive the upcoming battle with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and which ones will bite the dust once and for all.

I’ve carefully avoided even vaguely hinting at who this person might be thus far, but I’ll warn you now: there are possible spoilers below.
