TV/Streaming


Under the Skin
Silver Reel might be bringing us a series based on the Scarlette Johanson lead movie. They recently outbid A24 for the rights.

American Horror Story
Ryan Murphy is indicating that there might NOT be a season with MacCauley Culkin in it. Thanks to the coronavirus… Or maybe this one will just get pushed back a year.

American Horror Stories
Producer Ryan Murphy is working on a spin-off series. Set to be a different kind of anthology. This time more in line with the likes of Tales From the Crypt, with each episode being a self contained hour long “ghost story,” that sounds like it will include some of the actors from the main series.
Westworld
Jonathan Nolan told Variety that there actually isn’t a set number of seasons in his and partner Lisa Joy’s plans for the show. Seemingly flying in the face of what was announced at the end of the first season.

Just Beyond
Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) is set to adapt R.L. Stine’s comic book, Just Beyond, as an 8 episode Disney+ horror/anthology series.

Czech Republic
The Czech government has lifted all bans on public gatherings and has said that all productions can resume. Which potentially means the return to production of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Carnival Row, and The Wheel of Time.

Muppets
A new Disney+ series is in the works for the Muppets, called Muppets Now. It is supposed to be a “short-form, unscripted” show on the platform.

The Mandalorian
Season 2 will have the return of Boba Fett to the Disney Star Wars universe. Set to be played by Temuera Morrison who played Jango Fett in the prequel movies. 
AND Katee Sakhoff will be joining the cast as Bokatan Kryze.

Swamp Thing
The new series is getting a second life of sorts. The CW has obtained the rights to air the DC Universe series on their channel, among other shows from other streamers.

Jerry Stiller
Died at 92 of “natural causes.”

Inuyasha
New reboot series in the works called “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon.” Original creator, Rumiko Takahashi, will be doing the character designs, and Teruo Sato (who also had his hands in the original series) will direct the series.


Movies


Superman: Man of Tomorrow
The newest DC animated movie will feature Zachary Quinto as the voice of Lex Luthor, Darren Criss as Superman, Alexandria Daddario as Lois Lane, Ryan Hurst as Lobo, Brett Dalton as Parasite, Ike Amadi as Martian Manhunter, Neil Flynn as Jonathan Kent, and Bellamy Young as Martha Kent.

Children of the Corn
Not everything is on hold right now. Kurt Wimmer, the director that gave us Equilibrium, is filming a remake to the Stephen King book/movie in Australia.

Prophet
Rob Liefeld is a busy man. His Prophet book just got picked up for a movie helmed by Arrowverse producer Marc Guggenheim.

New Zealand
As with the Czech Republic, it seems that New Zealand is also lifting some of their restrictions. The country is going to require productions like Avatar or Lord of the Rings to register with some of the local agencies to monitor everyone’s safety.

New Mutants
THR says that Disney still wants to theatrically release the movie, even though it has been reportedly been scheduled for VOD.

Rumor Mill


Superman/girl
Rumor has it that the Superman killing Supergirl movie is now not happening. With WB actually listening to what fans want and bringing Cavill back in the tights.
But then other sources are saying that this is still unlikely due to Cavill’s Manager holding out for more money.

Aquaman 2
With Amber Heard’s potential jail time looming, rumor has it WB has severed ties with Heard and bought her out of her contract.

The Mandalorian
More rumors about Ahsoka Tano, Sabine Wren, and Captain Rex making appearances in season 2. Also, season 3 will see Boba in a “much larger” role than we get him in for season 2.
