Colin Trevorrow Got Kicked Out Of The ‘Star Wars IX’ Directing GigBy toddSeptember 06, 2017
Colin Trevorrow Got Kicked Out Of The ‘Star Wars IX’ Directing Gig

 

Colin Trevorrow made some weird, boring indie movie about time travel that made $4M, so off the back of that, he got hired to do a remake of Jurassic Park with a bigger dinosaur and less interesting characters. It was aight. He then got hired to direct Star Wars IX.  Lucasfilm released a statement yesterday saying he’s not directing Star Wars IX anymore.

Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX. Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon.

Man, I wonder what happened?

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that script issues have continued to be a sore spot throughout Episode IX’s development, with Trevorrow having repeated stabs at multiple drafts. In August, Jack Thorne, the British scribe who wrote the upcoming Julia Roberts-Jacob Tremblay movie Wonder, was tapped to work on the script.

Ah, “script issues”. It probably has nothing to do with the fact that the movie he made while waiting to make Star Wars IX was batshit lunacy that got savaged so bad by critics the only way you can see it is if you follow it into the shadow realm. Kathleen Kennedy is not here for that nonsense. I guess “the script was bad” is better than saying all that. Deadline says Rian Johnson will probably take it over after he finishes Star Wars VIII, but Disney will suck the tit of this Star Wars cash cow until the sun burns out, so Trevorrow has plenty of time to make another one. Maybe they’ll hit him up for Admiral Ackbar’s standalone origin film or a movie about Chewbacca’s cousin. No worries.

Here’s Rami Malek As Freddie MercuryBy toddSeptember 06, 2017
Here’s Rami Malek As Freddie Mercury

 

If you’ve never seen Mr. Robot or Buster’s Mal Heart, I suggest you do so before we all die. Rami Malek is legit incredible and both of the things I just linked are mind fucks. Now he’s gonna play probably the greatest frontman of all time, Freddie Mercury. As you can see, he definitely looks the part.

The Mr. Robot star is preparing to play Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody (out Dec. 25, 2018), the Bryan Singer-directed film that chronicles Queen from 1970, when Mercury teamed with Brian May and Roger Taylor, until the band’s performance at Live Aid in 1985, six years before the singer died of complications from AIDS.

Awesome, can’t wait to see Rami Malek look exactly like Freddie Mercury while Freddie Mercury’s voice comes out of his mouth.

Parts of the movie that feature singing will utilize either Malek’s own voice or recordings of Mercury, with a sound alike filling in the gaps.“We’re going to use Freddie as much as possible and use myself as much as possible,” Malek says.“I’m in Abbey Road [Studios] right now if that should say anything to you. I’m not working on my acting.”

Oh, God. Dear God no. No. Play us out, Freddie.

Amanda Seyfried’s Mom Rack Did The Venice Film FestivalBy toddSeptember 01, 2017
Amanda Seyfried’s Mom Rack Did The Venice Film Festival

 

Amanda Seyfried, still glowing from having the baby with the husband she snatched, attended the 74th Venice Film Festival where she has a movie with Ethan Hawke. It was only a matter of time before they did a movie together, because it seems like Ethan Hawke is in every movie. Anyway, the point of this post is that Amanda Seyfried has large breasts and they are larger now because she had a baby and she has them pushed up. We don’t need to make this overly complicated like the Rogue One plot. Just click through them.

Mark Hamill Is Old Man Skywalker Now

 

Mark Hamill shared a new picture of Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s Luke Skywalker from a Hungarian magazine of all places, and oh man, it’s super dark! Everything you once loved has to be super dark and edgy now. Superman, Luke Skywalker, Twitter. Everything. Everything has to be dark and miserable. His lightsaber probably shoots out a Nietzsche ebook.

Ed Skrein Dropped Out Of ‘Hellboy’ Because He’s White. That Happened.By toddAugust 29, 2017
Ed Skrein Dropped Out Of ‘Hellboy’ Because He’s White. That Happened.

 

Ed Skrein was in Deadpool, then he got cast in the Hellboy reboot as Major Ben Daimio. In the comic book that character is Asian. Ed Skrein isn’t Asian. This made people MAD ONLINE, so he dropped out of the movie and wrote this thing and posted it on Twitter.

 


Damn. It sucks that fictional characters have to be same race when people make a movies about them, because I was really looking forward to Idris Elba as James Bond and Lakeith Stanfield as The Joker. I can’t believe…wait, sorry…I just received word that the “fictional character” argument only works if the fictional character is white. If the fictional character is white, it can be played by anyone of any race. Sorry for the confusion there. I guess white actors can just move behind the camera and make all the decisions, because we all know that true diversity begins and ends with what’s on the display shelf. Good job, everyone!

Alexandra Daddario & Kate Upton Suck At Promoting ‘The Layover’By toddAugust 24, 2017
Alexandra Daddario & Kate Upton Suck At Promoting ‘The Layover’

 

If you don’t remember the trailer for The Layover, it’s the movie where Alexandra Daddario and Kate Upton are friends until they met a dude then they turn on each other and use their titties as weapons in a war to see who will get to bang the dude. It probably won’t have any all-female screenings. Last night they showed up to the premiere of The Layover without showing their titties. Maybe because they don’t want to be seen as objects. Feminism is weird some times.

Margot Robbie & Jared Leto Are Doing A Harley Quinn & Joker MovieBy toddAugust 24, 2017
Margot Robbie & Jared Leto Are Doing A Harley Quinn & Joker Movie

 

So two days, and two movies about The Joker have been announced. He’s also reportedly gonna be in Gotham City Sirens and Suicide Squad 2. Tomorrow George Lucas will announce a Joker Christmas special. So, Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Jared Leto (The Joker) are doing movie. That’s a thing that’s happening, I guess. Thanks, world.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, directors and executive producers of the hit NBC drama This Is Us and who also wrote and helmed the 2011 film Crazy, Stupid, Love, are entering the DC cinematic universe at Warner Bros. The duo are in final negotiations to pen and helm an untitled movie project centering on Batman villains Joker and Harley Quinn. Insiders say that the plan is for this feature to go after the studio makes a sequel to Suicide Squad. The latter is on the development fast-track and out to directors. But the Joker and Harley Quinn movie is also moving fast as Warners has to contend with actors’ holding agreements, say sources.

Here was the pitch.

The film is described as a “criminal love story,” according to one source, featuring the two murdering maniacs who are cornerstones in the Batman mythos. One insider offered this: “an insane and twisted love story. When Harry Met Sally on benzedrine.”

If anything gets me excited about a Harley Quinn/Joker movie is a reference to a Billy Crystal 90s rom-com. Anyway, Margot Robbie was the best part of Suicide Squad, and if Jared Leto had Heath Ledger’s exact same part in The Dark Knight, we might be calling him the best Joker ever. And if the Olsen twins didn’t kill Heath Ledger he might have been in Suicide Squad and been horrible. Or maybe not. My apologies. I just care too much.

Ben Affleck Really Won’t Be In ‘The Batman’By toddAugust 24, 2017
Ben Affleck Really Won’t Be In ‘The Batman’

 

Warner Bros. and the DCEU are a shit show. I don’t think anybody wants to be involved besides Gal Gadot, because what else is she gonna do? The DCEU is so bad right now that they’re trying to develop DC movies that take place outside the current DCEU. It looks like The Batman will be one of those. If you take what Casey Affleck said combined with what Matt Reeves said, then read what THR said yesterday, you understand that Ben Affleck would rather hug a suicide bomber than be associated with Batman anymore.

The new line, or possibly label, will allow for the making of movies that will stand apart and separate from those big-budget tentpoles. Matt Reeves’ The Batman, for example, is intended to not be connected to the Justice League universe but to be set in a different time period and star another actor.

THR removed this section of the article and replaced it with this, so feel free to draw your own conclusions.

Aug. 23, 6:40 p.m. An earlier version of this story stated that Matt Reeves’ The Batman was part of Warner Bros.’ new label and would star a new actor as Batman, but it is unclear where that project will fall.

Matt Reeves reportedly wants to do a trilogy, and Ben Affleck has one film remaining on his deal with Warner Bros. Maybe just get Andy Serkis to play Ben Affleck. Problem solved.

Ben Affleck Isn’t Doing ‘The Batman’ Says Casey AffleckBy toddAugust 16, 2017
Ben Affleck Isn’t Doing ‘The Batman’ Says Casey Affleck

 

DC has made one watchable movie out of three, Justice League sounds like a dumpster fire, The Batman has had more directors that Trump’s FBI, and every time you ask Ben Affleck about it, he gets fucking annoyed. So, it doesn’t seem like an impossibility that Affleck would turn into Billy Zane at the end of Titanic and start ripping lifeboats out of WB exec wives’ hands to jump off that sinking, lame ass ship. Enter, Casey Affleck.

 

Speaking on the WEEI Sports Radio Network, Affleck was asked about his brother’s upcoming The Batman with Matt Reeves. Jump to 6:03 (via Cosmic Book News) to see Casey Affleck crush a lot of neck beard dreams.

Luc Besson Says ‘Captain America’ Is PropagandaBy toddAugust 15, 2017
Luc Besson Says ‘Captain America’ Is Propaganda

 

Maybe it’s because Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was bigger bomb than anything North Korea has, but director Luc Besson really, really hates movies that aren’t. Specifically, superhero movies. More specifically, Captain America. In an interview with Brazil’s Cinepop, Besson had this to say (thanks to Cinemablend for the translation):

“What bothers me most is it’s always here to show the supremacy of America and how they are great,” he said. “I mean, which country in the world would have the guts to call a film ‘Captain Brazil’ or ‘Captain France’? I mean, no one! We would be like so ashamed and say, ‘No, no, come on, we can’t do that.’ They can. They can call it ‘Captain America’ and everybody think it’s normal. I’m not here for propaganda, I’m here to tell a story.”

Besson is French, right? This sounds very French. But to answer his question, “Captain Brazil” and “Captain France” probably wouldn’t scare a lot of Nazis. They sound like they’d be super into soccer.
