Wonder Woman is just a few weeks away from the start of production, and there still isn’t a whole lot we know about it. It’s confirmed that Gal Gadot and Chris Pine will star for director Patty Jenkins, and that it’s opening on June 23, 2017. Warner Bros. has not said a peep about when it will take place, or what it will be about, or how it’ll fit in with the rest of the DCEU.
So until they do, the rumor mill churns on. Today’s big, juicy, take-it-with-a-fistful-of-salt report purports to answer all of those questions, plus questions you might not even have gotten to yet, like “Will the invisible jet make an appearance?” and “Which other big DC character is making a cameo?” Read More »

We don’t want to run around yelling things like “There’s something wrong with Channing Tatum‘s Gambit movie!” because we don’t have a mutant power that lets us see behind the scenes of major film productions.

After all, it took months of searching (and a whole bunch of refusals) to land director Rupert Wyatt, who promptly dropped out of the project a few weeks ago.
Now, production on the X-Men spin-off has supposedly been delayed as the hunt for a director continues. Now, three new filmmakers are supposedly r in contention for the job. Like so many of the others who have passed on the film, they are one varied bunch: Doug Liman, Shane Black, and Joe Cornish.
Let’s dive into the potential Gambit directors after the jump.

Every major Hollywood production is a merry-go-round of screenwriters coming and going, fixing and polishing. It’s never surprising and often never commented upon when a new writer is brought onto a new project to replace another. But since Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has the words star and wars in the title, the internet has been keeping a careful watch on this project. Fans of this series have always been an obsessive bunch and this mysterious film, the first in a whole series of spin-off movies, grants them something brand new and totally unique to get obsessed with.
Anyway, here’s the latest report for you to over-analyze: a new rumor claims that screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie did some work on the Rogue One screenplay. Hit the jump for more details on the Rogue One screenplay rumor.
