A Monster Calls, the children’s fantasy novel by Patrick Ness, have paved the way to the A Monster Calls movie, and the cast is shaping up to be excellent. This week has seen a parade of new names attached to the film, and the latest is Toby Kebbell.
You didn’t even see Kebbel, per se, in his most recent film, when he was spectacular as the antagonist Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. But Kebbell has been reliably good in many other films prior to that, and we’re looking forward to seeing him as the father of a young boy — a boy who escapes his real-world problems by fleeing to a fantasy world.

Will Guillermo del Toro ever get to direct Justice League Dark? Who knows. He’s finishing up an October 2015 release in Crimson Peak, and then moves into 2017′s Pacific Rim 2. After that his schedule is hypothetically open. At Comic-Con, Legendary chairman Thomas Tull teased the filmmaker about possibly letting him make passion projects Into the Mountains of Madness or Hellboy 3 in the future. That leaves Justice League Dark as one of multiple films he either doesn’t make until the next decade or leaves to someone else.
Still, exploration of that dark DC Comics universe will start this fall in the NBC show Constantine. In a new interview del Toro said that while Warner Bros. has given him full freedom when writing the film, he would be open to tying the show into the movie, or maybe even casting Matt Ryan, if the opportunity presented itself. Read about the potential Justice League Dark Constantine crossover below. Read More »
