True Detective Season 3

Black Panther 2

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Ryan Coogler, the filmmaker behind Marvel’s Black Panther, has quietly closed a deal to write and direct the sequel.

Sources say the plan at this stage is for Coogler to write the script next year with an eye to start production in either late 2019 or early 2020. Marvel and parent company Disney, however, have not made any official announcements.

Fantastic Beasts 3

Johnny Depp was talking about Fantastic Beasts 2 and mentioned he would be back for the third installment – “The possibilities in that world are wide open, so you can really try anything. So it was a gas and I look forward to the next installment, which I think we start the middle of next year”Collider

True Detective Season 3

The new season stars Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo and Stephen Dorff. It tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Season 3 hits HBO on 13th January 2019.

Secret Six

CBS is developing a drama series based on DC Comics’ Secret Six.

The project, which has received a pilot production commitment at the network, follows six morally ambiguous strangers, each with their own unique specialities and secret pasts. They are brought together by an enigmatic figure who blackmails them into working as a team to expose the corruption of the corporate and political elite. There is no word yet, however, on which characters would appear in the series, but in the comics the team has featured Catman, Deadshot, Cheshire, Rag Doll, Scandal Savage, and a Parademon.

Rick Muirragui will write and executive produce, with Bill Lawrence and Jeff Ingold executive producing via Doozer Productions. Warner Bros. Television, where Doozer is under an overall deal, will produce – Variety

November Road

Lawrence Kasdan (Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Solo: A Star Wars Story) has won the rights to November Road, the upcoming novel from Edgar Award-winning author Lou Berney. The novel is just being published by William Morrow HarperCollins. Kasdan will write and direct, and will produce the film with Shane Salerno in a co-production between Kasdan Pictures and The Story Factory.

In the spirit of No Country for Old Men, Man on Fire, and Witness, November Road is a story of second chances and redemption. It’s November 22, 1963, JFK has just been assassinated, and all Frank Guidry was supposed to do was get rid of the car – the same car, he realizes, that he had personally delivered to Dealey Plaza a week before. This connects him to the president’s murder and, when other loose ends begin dying all around him, Frank knows he’s next. Hunted by a ruthless hitman hired by his ex-boss, Frank heads across the desert where he meets Charlotte Roy, who is running away from her smalltown life and abusive alcoholic husband with two young daughters and an epileptic dog in tow. Guidry sees this instant family scenario as the perfect cover and while he might get her killed, Charlotte sees him as her best chance at a new life, if they can escape before his past catches up to him – Deadline

God Country

Image Comics’ God Country is to be addapted by AfterShock and Legendary. The screenplay for the movie will be written by Donny Cates, who co-created the comic with Geoff Shaw. Published in 2017, the six-issue God Country is a fantasy series in which an elderly widower in Texas finds himself restored to health — and cured of dementia — after discovering an enchanted sword in the eye of a tornado. His revival comes with a cost, however; he has been transformed into the only man who can face a number of otherworldly creatures summoned to Texas by the sword’s arrival – THR

Toff Guys

Guy Ritchie has got a new British crime drama, Toff Guys, in the works. Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale, and “Crazy Rich Asians” actor Henry Golding are set to star in the film.

Ritchie will direct and produce from a script he wrote with Marn Davies and Ivan Atkinson. The story explores the collision between European “old money” and the modern marijuana industry. It follows a British drug lord attempting to cash out on his highly profitable empire by selling it off to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires – Variety
