X-Force Movie Is Still In The Works

Published

on

Production Weekly (via Digital Spy) is claiming that X-Force is scheduled to kick off production this October, and that Reynolds and Brolin are already locked in to return as the Merc with a Mouth and his time-traveling pal (sometimes). Given Zazie Beetz’s impending debut as Domino in May’s Deadpool 2, we assume that she’ll also be back for the planned off-shoot. Considering the timeline for making the film, it certainly lends into the possibility that X-Force will be ready to roll-out by 2019 (perhaps in the summer time after New Mutants‘ release in February next year).

Following the Fox and Disney buyout (which would return the rights to Fox’s Marvel IPs to Marvel Studios), it was revealed that Goddard is still attached to X-Force. The project is currently expected to proceed as planned, along with the other X-Men films that are in some stage of post-production at the moment (namely, Deadpool 2, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and New Mutants). At the same time, the fact that Fox is moving forward with so many mutant films and TV shows of their own right now (including, FX’s Legion) has left many X-Men fans puzzled, given the impending deal with Disney and Marvel Studios.

X-Force looks to start filming this October, with both Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin reprising their roles as Wade Wilson/Deadpool and Nathan Summers/Cable, respectively. That means the actors will only have a few months of downtime before they’re called back to set to spearhead their growing mutant crew on a brand new adventure, after Deadpool 2 hits theaters in May.

Based on the comic book property created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld in 1991, the X-Force film adaptation has gone through multiple changes in creative personnel. Kick-Ass 2 writer and director Jeff Wadlow was originally tapped to write the screenplay in 2013, before he was replaced by Joe Carnahan last year. The gig ultimately landed on Drew Goddard’s lap after that, and it appears as though he will be the one who actually oversees the operation, assuming the latest update on the project is accurate.

Lebron James Producing ‘Friday The 13th’ Reboot

Published

on

Lebron James is rebooting another cult classic.

James SpringHill Entertainment company and Vertigo Entertainment, the latter of which produced It, are producing a remake of Friday The 13th.

The success of the Halloween and It are key factors to trying to reboot the horror franchise featuring Jason. The franchise also has been on hold due to lawsuits from the original screenwriter Victor Miller. Miller won his case in court retaining the rights to his screenplay.

The plaintiffs, which include producer and director Sean Cunningham, could still appeal, and one item not on the table at the trial was who controls the rights to the character of Jason Vorhees, who dies as a young boy in the first movie but becomes the unstoppable hockey mask-wearing killer the franchise would become known for.

Settlements or future legal battles could still occur. Another foil is that the legal decision seems to indicate that Miller will control the rights in the U.S. The producers and Warner Bros., which last made a movie through New Line, control certain international territories.

According to THR, no writers have been signed on yet.

Netflix Cancels Luke Cage Series

Published

on

It looks like Luke Cage is the latest Marvel Hero to get canceled.

Netflix announced they would be canceling the series just a week after canceling Iron Fist. “Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Marvel and the streaming service said on Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”

The second season had Luke Cage embracing his fame after the events of Defenders until Bushmaster played by Mustafia Shakir shows up to claim Harlem. Bushmaster wanted control of Harlem’s gangs, something that not only puts him on Luke’s to-punch list, but also in the crosshairs of Mariah (Alfre Woodard,) who has consolidated her control of Harlem and isn’t interested in interlopers. Fortunately, Luke isn’t without backup, as Misty Knight (Simone Missick) has a bright shiny new robot arm to beat up goons with.

Luke Cage was one of the best shows on Netflix, its sad day that creative difference between the higher-ups means no show for the fans.
