J.J. Abrams and Daisy Ridley first joined forces to explore a certain galaxy far, far way, but now they’re looking to extend their relationship beyond the Star Wars universe. The pair are reuniting on Kolma, a fantasy thriller to be produced by Abrams’ Bad Robot. But Abrams isn’t directing this time around. Instead, that job will go to Marielle Heller, who broke out last year with the superb coming-of-age story Diary of a Teenage GirlRead More »

Willem Dafoe

Justice League may be a DC Comics adaptation, but it’s going to star a whole lot of Marvel vets. First Warner Bros. scooped up Ben Affleck from the ashes of that Daredevil movie, and then they picked up J.K. Simmons from the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films. Now they’ve made room for one more Spider-Man alum: Willem Dafoe, who played the villainous Green Goblin in that universe but will get to be a good guy here.  Read More »

After the massive success of 50 Shades of Grey, director Sam Taylor-Johnson decided against returning for the sequels. Since the adaptation opened in theaters, she hasn’t lined up many film projects for herself. In December, Taylor-Johnson was briefly attached to direct Chappaquiddick, but two months later, she dropped out of the film to work on Netflix’s Gypsy, a series that has just landed its lead, Naomi Watts (Demolition).

Tom Holland (In the Heart of the Sea) is playing Spider-Man, who we’ll see in Captain America: Civil War next month, and now he’s been given a couple more co-stars to join him in high school.

Jackie Earle Haley in Watchmen

If you’re the kind of person who adores comic book shows and fantasy movies — and judging by the fact that you’re on /Film, we’re guessing you are — prepare to see a lot of Jackie Earle Haley over the next couple of years. Not only is he set to star in AMC’s Preacher, he’s just snapped up roles in Amazon’s The Tick and Nikolaj Arcel‘s Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower. Not surprisingly, given his knack for playing colorful and creepy characters, he’ll be playing villains in all of them.  Read More »

I won’t say that the Transformers movie series is cursed. It’s too successful, too huge, and too popular to carry such a label, even if Transformers: Age of Extinction underperformed at the domestic box office. However, the Transformers movie series does have the nasty habit of chewing up actors and spitting them out and ensuring that nobody takes them seriously for a good long while. Look at Shia LeBeouf, whose time in the series saw him transition from a promising young actor into walking, weeping art project. Look at Megan Fox, who was reduced to a sex object and has had to spend the past few five years reminding us that she’s a perfectly fine actress with rock solid chops. Only Mark Wahlberg has weathered this series and that’s because he’s Mark Wahlberg – nothing embarrasses him anymore.

So the news that the young TV star Isabela Moner is joining the cast of Transformers 5 makes me want to grab her parents by shoulders and give them a good shake while demanding for them to explain why they obviously don’t love their child.

Steve Alten‘s Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror was first published in 1997 and the film adaptation has been in development for almost as long. Every few years, someone commits to a film adaptation of this tale of Man versus Giant Prehistoric Killer Shark and every few years, the whole thing falls apart. Now, nearly twenty years after the initial plans to make this movie, a new batch of names have become associated with the project.
