TV/Streaming


Snowpiercer
Sean Bean is going to be joining the cast of the prequel series as Mr. Wilford, the architect of the train itself. So he is destined to die at some point then right?

Usagi Yojimbo
Netflix is developing an animated series based on the manga, and sometimes TMNT guest.
Well… kinda. Creator Stan Sakai and James Wan, among others, are set to be on the production staff, but the series (called Samurai Rabbit: The Usagi Chronicles) will focus on a DESCENDANT (Yuichi) of Yojimbo, and not the anthropomorphized rabbit in the title. Interesting choice.

Chucky
New trailer. Will be on Syfy AS WELL AS USA Network.

Uncharted
Tom Holland has posted an image of himself on set. Indicating production is underway.

Just Cause
Derek Kolstad (John Wick) is now writing a film based on the Just Cause video game franchise for Stuber director Michael Dowse.

Noah Centineo cast as Atom Smasher in the movie. Which was leaked on REDDIT???
Centineo ALSO recently cast in He-Man.

Wishbone
Universal and Mattel are working on a movie adaptation of the children’s educational show. Enough is too much.

Rumor Mill

New rumors about the Lucas Cut. Now they have NUMBERS! Apparently there is an approximate 40% difference from what we got in the theater and the version that Lucas cut.

Inhumans
Reportedly looking at bringing Vin Diesel to play Black Bolt in a reboot.

Deadpool
New rumors are saying that the introduction of Wade Wilson to the MCU will tie him directly to the Weapon X program (and thus the X-Men) and will make him something of a villain to start.
