Star Wars: Episode 9

Could Richard E. Grant be playing Thrawn in the next Star Wars movie?

Doom Patrol

Diane Guerrero (Orange is the New Black) has been cast in the role of Crazy Jane in DC’s upcoming live-action Doom Patrol series. Crazy Jane is described as “an unlikely hero suffering from the world’s most severe case of multiple personality disorder. Each of her 64 distinct personas manifest a different super power making Jane the Doom Patrol’s most powerful member…and also its most unstable.” She will join April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl and Kelsy Grammer, who is in talks to play Dr. Caulder.

Star Trek

Star Trek 4 is currently in development, but Simon Pegg has been talking about the Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie.

Tarantino came in to Bad Robot and pitched it and it’s been put in the bank. I think he had us in mind when he came up with the idea; he likes the new cast…As far as I know, it is the same cast.

I can’t see him doing it for five or six years, by which time we might be too old anyway.

The Hobbit

Topher Grace (BlackKklansman) has recut Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy into a two hour movie, and he felt that it was “a lot tighter.” He last recut the Star Wars prequels down to  85 minutes and he used The Hobbit re-edit to help him decompress after playing Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke in Spike Lee’s BlackKlansman. “I don’t know what other guys do. Go fishing? For me, this is just a great way to relax,” the actor said. “There’s something really zen about it.” – IndieWire
