  • Josh Brolin has been talking about playing Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War“There’s times where it can become psychological, and not necessarily brute force. More interesting for adults now, maybe not for kids. It’s a really smart movie. He’s a smart character. I had no idea, in all truth. I had no idea, when I did the teaser, we had like thirty-six cameras or something, and I sat on a seat, and it wasn’t working with anybody. And now, being actually involved and interacting [with] the potpourri of characters that are in it, it’s way more emotional and interactive than I thought. It’s a lot of fun and a lot deeper than I thought. A lot more emotional than I thought. “

  • Storm Reid (A Wrinkle in Time) will star opposite David Oyelowo in Only You, the latest thriller from Blumhouse Productions. Details are being kept locked tight, but You involves a police officer (Oyelowo) whose family was killed, a niece (Reid) who is in danger, and a plot with time-travel elements. Jacob Estes wrote the script and is directing – THR
  • Neill Blomkamp would like to make a sequel to Elysium – “Elysium is more something I feel like I could have done better. I think that if you were to take something like Elysium and play with it inside a setting like this you probably would hone it – you would end up, I think, with something well thought through and that has all of the thematic elements that I wanted. I still love the set up to Elysium. The idea of the separation of class warfare presented with this space ring is incredibly appealing to me and I would love to go back and make another movie in the world of Elysium because it’s compelling. I just think I can do a better job in setting up what the themes are more clearly and what the character’s motivations are. I can do it better, I think.”ScreenRant
  • Carla Gugino has been tapped to co-lead Netflix’s 10-episode adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House alongside Michel Huisman.

A classic haunted house story that relies on terror and suspense more than outright horror, the book follows four protagonists who end up staying in the house with the leader of the group, Doctor Montague, hoping to find scientific evidence of the supernatural. No character details have been released – The Tracking Board
  • American Horror Story has got a teaser for Season 7.
