As WandaVision continues to surprise fans with a powerful story about superhero grief, the future of Marvel Studios on the small screen looks extremely promising. The comic book movie studio will soon be digging into characters who have yet to be properly adapted for film or television, and that includes some of their weirder, more obscure characters. One such character is Moon Knight, who is getting his own series on Disney+. Actor Ethan Hawke recently confirmed that he’ll be taking a role in the series, and he also explained what compelled him to work with Marvel Studios, despite being somewhat critical of superhero movies in the past.

the black phone cast ethan hawke

Ethan Hawke is reuniting with his Sinister director Scott Derrickson for the upcoming Blumhouse horror movie The Black Phone. The film is based on a short story by Joe Hill in which a boy is kidnapped and locked away in a basement with a disconnected phone that suddenly starts to ring. It was recently reported that Jeremy Davies would be joining the cast as well, and I theorized that Davies would be playing the kidnapper since he kind of has the market cornered on playing intense, weird guys. But as it turns out, it’s Hawke who will be playing the kidnapper character.

the guilty remake cast

Antoine Fuqua is directing a remake of the Danish thriller The Guilty for Netflix with Jake Gyllenhaal set to star. So far, so good. But now a surprisingly large cast has been added around Gyllenhaal, including Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Dano, Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough, and more. And that’s where things grow slightly confusing. To be clear: these are all good actors, but their addition here suggests that The Guilty remake is going to be very different than the original. Because the original film is almost entirely a one-man show.

The movie biopic has become so rote that even the word can elicit a sense of nagging boredom. So how do you inject some life into the prestigious, but ultimately by-the-numbers, biographical drama? By hitting it with a little lightning. Tesla stars Ethan Hawke as the groundbreaking inventor Nikola Tesla, whose discoveries in wireless energy would change the world. And with his fourth wall-breaking biopic Tesla, director Michael Almereyda hopes to change our perception of the genre.

fourth before movie

“Think of this as time travel.” The greatest pick-up line in cinematic history or a prophecy of the swooning trilogy of films that would follow? When Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy first crossed paths in Richard Linklater‘s 1995 drama Before Sunrise, no one expected that we would follow the story of Jesse and Celine for 18 more years.

But now, as we come up on 9 years after the supposed final film Before Midnight (the magic number that spans the gap between each film), someone had to ask Hawke: will there be a fourth Before film? Hawke doesn’t exactly say no, and even enthusiastically imagines a Before sequel that follows Jesse and Celine during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
