20th Century Fox’s Gambit solo movie was originally scheduled to hit theaters over a year ago, but several starts and stops and a revolving door of directors kicked its release back to 2019. And since the movie has just found a director in Gore Verbinski, important casting decisions are happening: Lizzy Caplan, the star of movies like Cloverfield and TV shows like Masters of Sex, has been cast as the film’s female lead.

Detective Pikachu movie

Detective Pikachu, a real movie that’s really being made, just cast its lead. Justice Smith, who appeared in the Netflix series The Get Down, has just joined the cast of the upcoming Pokémon movie.

super-normal

If the proliferation of Olaf merchandise wasn’t a sign that Josh Gad is fast becoming one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood, then the Netflix superhero comedy that he’s producing could be.

I exaggerate, but Josh Gad has certainly become one of the hardest-working people in Hollywood in the past few years since he broke into mainstream success with Frozen, quickly accumulating movie credits like Beauty and the Beast and Murder on the Orient Express. But a padded IMDB page isn’t the only thing he got out of this — it seems that Gad has formed strong bonds with co-stars Luke Evans and Daisy Ridley, so much so that the two of them have signed onto his Netflix comedy Super-Normal.

Boss Level

The classic Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day is the most famous movie example of a time loop scenario in which a character must relive the same day over and over again, but there have been plenty of others since 1993. The concept seems to be back in fashion in Hollywood these days, with films like Edge of Tomorrow, Before I Fall, Naked, and Happy Death Day putting their own characters through a repeating hellscape in order to teach them a lesson about themselves. And now a new movie called Boss Level will use that same formula.

The Secret Life of Pets 2

The Secret Life of Pets was a runaway family film hit at the box office after pulling in $368.3 million at the domestic box office and $875.4 million worldwide. Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment were so happy with the results that they quickly ordered a sequel to arrive in the summer of 2019. But in light of recent events, that sequel will be missing one of the original film’s voice stars.

Louis C.K. has been removed as one of the voice stars of The Secret Life of Pets 2 following his admission to committing several acts of sexual misconduct throughout his career. The comedian played Max, the Jack Russell Terrier who got caught up in a series of misadventures in New York City along with his unwelcome new mutt companion Duke (Eric Stonestreet), but he will now be replaced with another actor.
