sci-fi spartacus

Whether you’ve seen the Stanley Kubrick classic or Starz’s (shockingly good) television series, or have just cracked a history book or two in your day, you’re probably familiar with the basics of the Spartacus story: gladiator defies Roman empire, leads a massive rebellion, etc. The details always get fudged around, but the basic beats tend to remain consistent.

And it’s easy to imagine the basic shape of this story remaining intact as it makes a transition to science fiction, because Taken 2 and Taken 3 director Olivier Megaton is making that movie. In space, no one can hear you scream “I am Spartacus!”

The Maze Runner The Death Cure production resumes

This past spring, production on the sequel The Maze Runner: The Death Cure hit quite a speed bump when a stunt gone wrong injured franchise star Dylan O’Brien. Production was expected to resume in May after O’Brien had a chance to recover, but in late April it was revealed the actor would require more time to heal. That resulted in an indefinite postponement of the shoot and the release date for the sequel being pushed back from February 17, 2017 nearly a full year back to January 12, 2018, but now Dylan O’Brien is ready to shoot again.

Deadpool writers

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick cared deeply about Deadpool. The two screenwriters behind Zombieland spent six years on the project, on and (mostly) off. Even when the odds of the comic book movie getting made appeared dire, they stuck with it, firmly believing in the character and director Tim Miller‘s vision. Once 20th Century Fox gave the project the greenlight, they wouldn’t pay to have “the real heroes” of Deadpool to be on set, but the film’s star and producer, Ryan Reynolds, was more than willing to pay them himself.
