oscar isaac resistance

Last week, we learned Legendary Entertainment was working on a film adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan’s comic book series Ex Machina. However, the project was going by the name The Great Machine in order to avoid being confused with the sci-fi movie Ex Machina. It turns out that was a smart move, because if it kept that title, it would have been even more confusing since Ex Machina star Oscar Isaac has just closed a deal to play the lead role in the movie, as well as produce it.

Sin City tv show

The idea for a Sin City TV show has been kicking around Hollywood since 2013, but it looks like it’s finally going to happen. Frank Miller, who created the graphic novels on which the two hyper-stylized noir films were based, has signed a deal with Legendary Television to adapt the franchise into a TV show, and Robert Rodriguez – who co-directed the two Sin City movies alongside Miller – is in negotiations to come on board. And from the sound of it, this may not be the only Sin City series that’s in our future. Read More »

texas chainsaw massacre sequel

After 2017’s disappointing prequel Leatherface, it looked like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre film franchise may have closed its tool shed for the last time. But it looks like the ol’ saw has been gassed up and the door has just been kicked open once again, because a new report says we’re getting another Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel, this time in the vein of what David Gordon Green and Danny McBride did with last year’s Halloween movie. Here’s what we know about the project so far. Read More »

Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune cast can’t stop heaping tons of praise on the director. The latest actor to put in his two cents about the acclaimed filmmaker is Stellan Skarsgard, who promised that Villeneuve is being given almost complete creative freedom on the film by Legendary and Warner Bros., and also took the chance to tease some (vague) details.

The original Pacific Rim is a giddy and eye-popping popcorn movie. While director Guillermo del Toro‘s lavish Kaiju movie was noticeably divisive online, it was embraced worldwide and became a modest box-office hit. The Legendary Pictures production earned enough cash in China to produce sequel, Pacific Rim Uprising, which didn’t live up to the charm and personality of the first movie.

Recently, we asked screenwriter and Carnival Row creator Travis Beacham what he initially had in mind for the franchise following the 2012 movie, since the sequel went in a very different direction than what was initially planned. A part of Beacham’s hope was to go to another world, and more specifically, to the other side of the rift where all the ‘lil blue creatures are cooking up Kaijus.
