Cobra Kai ending

According to Netflix’s in-app chart, Cobra Kai was the number one show in the United States on the streaming service over the weekend, so it’s clear that the Karate Kid sequel series has carved its way into the cultural consciousness in a big way with its third season. Season 4 has already been given the go-ahead, but how long will the series last? “We have an endgame in our heads,” the showrunners said in a new interview, and they’ve hinted that we could be seeing much more of this story play out before they wrap things up.

Plus, find out how 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg helped facilitate one of Cobra Kai season 3’s big reveals. Spoilers for season 3 ahead.

Dan Trachtenberg to Direct Mother I'd Like to Kill

Dan Trachtenberg made his feature directorial debut with the outstanding 10 Cloverfield Lane, but somehow, no studio has picked him up for another feature yet. Sony Pictures tried by bringing him in to direct their long-gestating adaptation of the video game Uncharted, but that fell through. Thankfully, it sounds like Lionsgate is smart enough to give him another crack at the big screen.

In a report about Disney producer and development executive Kristin Burr heading to Lionsgate with a new multi-year overall deal, it was revealed that one of the first projects she’s bringing to the studio is MILK (aka Mother I’d Like to Kill), an action comedy that puts a motherly spin on Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Fast and Furious 9 director

Earlier this week, we wrote about how there’s a chance The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray might not return for the upcoming Fast 9. But this is one of Universal’s biggest moneymakers, so somebody has to take on the tremendous challenge of leading the massive production as the series barrels toward its planned ending. Who could successfully shoulder the weight of a long-running film franchise yet still deliver an entertaining spectacle in a quick and efficient manner? I’ve come up with 10 filmmakers I think are up to the task, so read on for my list of who could be the Fast and Furious 9 director.

Dan Trachtenberg directing 10 Cloverfield Lane

In 2011, Universal acquired a pitch for a sci-fi movie called Crime of the Century from Fast & Furious screenwriter/producer Chris Morgan. He’s producing that film, which is based on an original idea from Dan Trachtenberg (Black Mirror) and writer Daniel Kunka (12 Rounds). Trachtenberg has been on board to direct from the very beginning, long before he made his feature directorial debut last year with 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Crime of the Century has been shrouded in mystery for years as it’s inched through the development process, but I spoke with Morgan and Trachtenberg and managed to get a couple of updates about the movie. This sounds like it’s going to be huge.
