Akira

Warner Bros. has set a release date for their live-action adaptation of Akira. It will be with us on 21st May 2021, instead of its original release date on 14th May 2021. The film will be directed by Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) and it will be set in Neo Tokyo.


Spawn

Todd McFarlane has given an update on the Spawn movie he is working on. It seems that he may walk away if he is asked to change the script too much.

“The money’s sitting on the sidelines ready to go,” McFarland told Comic Book. “I just need to get everyone that wants to put in money to shake their heads to the same script. As you can imagine, everyone has a slightly different version of it in their head. You just go and trying to appease a handful of people while not giving in to what it is that I’m trying to do myself. Because if I have to change it too much, I’ll just walk away from it all.”


Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Check out the latest TV spot for the film which is due out on 29th May.


Last Night in SohoM

Edgar Wright’s new film has begun production. The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Glass), Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie (Leave No Trace) and Matt Smith (The Crown, Doctor Who). Wright calls it a psychological horror-thriller in the vein of Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. Wright co-wrote the script for the film with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Penny Dreadful).


Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

A film based on the 2003 video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is rumoured to be in the works, with Laeta Kalogridis (Alita: Battle Angel, Terminator: Genisys, Altered Carbon) writing it.

Kalogridis is close to finishing the first script of a potential KOTOR trilogy, according to the three sources to Buzzfeed News. She is the first woman writer of a Star Wars movie since The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, when Leigh Brackett received a co-writing credit with Lawrence Kasdan. Lucasfilm has been criticized for hiring only white men to shepherd the world of Star Wars.

Representatives for Kalogridis, Lucasfilm, and Disney did not respond to BuzzFeed News’ requests for comment.


Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino’s new film premiered at Cannes with a 2-hour, 39-minute version. Now, Tarantino said he and editor Fred Raskin may make the film even longer before its theatrical release.

“I may make it longer,” Tarantino told IndieWire at Cannes “Let’s see if we can get it tighter than that. 2:45 seems like an old Quentin movie. Let’s see if we can get past the Quentin cut to a really friendly cut any audience can appreciate.

I wouldn’t take anything else out. I’m going to explore possibly putting something back in. If anything, I wanted to go to Cannes too short. if I’m going to err, I’m going to err on too tight.”

Tarantino admitted, everyone lost scenes, from Leonardo DiCaprio’s western star Rick Dalton starring in an alternate version of “The Great Escape” in the role that made Steve McQueen famous (Damian Lewis turns up as McQueen), and Al Pacino as an agent promoting spaghetti westerns at Musso & Frank, to Scoot McNairy. “That was his only scene,” said Tarantino. “That’s the way it goes.”

It was about 10 years ago that Tarantino came up with the idea for this new film.

“I worked with an actor who had been in the business for a while, he was a little older now,” said Tarantino. “He had a stunt double who he had worked with for 20 years. We didn’t have anything for the stunt double to do, but there was one little bit. ‘Can you use my guy? It would be nice.’ ‘Yeah, sure.’ This guy showed up; he was an interesting fellow. He wasn’t working for me, he was working for the actor. This was maybe one of the last movies he could do with the guy. They probably once looked so close to each other you could do a close-up on the stuntman, but that was not the case anymore. I thought the relationship was fascinating. I didn’t know that much about them, but I knew I wanted to explore a couple like that toward the end of their careers. I might want to do a movie about Hollywood someday.”


Between Two Ferns

Netflix and Zach Galifianakis have confirmed that the long-rumoured movie version of Funny or Die series Between Two Ferns will be out on Sept. 20 – Deadline

Galifianakis dreamed of becoming a star. But when Will Ferrell discovered his public access TV show Between Two Ferns and uploaded it to Funny Or Die, Zach became a viral laughing stock.
