Malcolm in the Middle

Full House, The X-Files, Heroes, and Twin Peaks are all coming back. Could Malcolm in the Middle be next? Star Frankie Muniz apparently hopes so.

Muniz quickly added that he was “just gauging interest,” suggesting nothing official is in the works at the moment. But if anything should happen, he can probably count in his former TV dad. “It’s been 10 years since we went off the air and it’d be fun to pick up that guy’s clothes again and be fun and sweet and adorable and hapless and clueless and afraid of everything,” said Bryan Cranston.

Breaking Bad return, on the other hand, sounds less likely. “I don’t have a yearning to go back into [Breaking Bad‘s] world because we just covered it completely, I think,” said Cranston.

The Conjuring 2 has conjured up another couple of cast members. Frances O’Connor (The Missing, Mr Selfridge) and Simon McBurney (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) will star alongside returning leads Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, who play real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

James Wan is directing The Conjuring 2 from a screenplay by Chad and Carey Hayes. O’Connor plays a mom who turns to the Warrens in desperation after her daughter experiences a haunting. Production begins this month for release on June 10, 2016.

Elizabeth Reaser is up for the next game of Ouija, as revealed by Deadline.

Following the success of Straight Outta Compton, Aldis Hodge is going straight into Jack Reacher 2. He’s reportedly in talks to join Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, and Danika Yarosh in the action sequel, which is being directed by Edward Zwick. Details on his role are being kept under wraps. Jack Reacher 2 is based on Never Go Back, the 18th in Lee Child‘s series of novels.

It’s not quite as exciting as a shirtless Matt Damon, but the new Bourne 5 set photo from producer Frank Marshall is a cute reminder that Jason Bourne isn’t the only one back in action.

Julia Stiles returns as Bourne’s good buddy Nicky Parsons, Tommy Lee Jones is a grumpy (we’re assuming) high-ranking CIA officer, Vincent Cassel is a villainous assassin, and Alicia Vikander and Ato Essandoh also star. Paul Greengrass directs. Bourne 5 arrives July 29, 2016.
