Sam Neill reunites with Taika Waititi and Jeff Goldblum in Thor: Ragnarok

The upcoming Thor: Ragnarok has added another fan-favorite actor to its cast, as Sam Neill reveals that he filmed a small role for the film.

“I’m not really allowed to say this and I can’t tell you what it is… I did a couple of days on Thor just before I came over here,” Neill tells Shortlist (via EW). “If I say anything else, Marvel’s secret agents — and they are lethal — will come and get me and probably my children, as well.”

Neill’s casting reunites him with director Taika Waititi, who directed him in his previous film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, but it also reunites him with his Jurassic Park co-star Jeff Goldblum. Who do you think Neill might be playing in the film? Sound off in the comments below!

Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge.

Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost. Current plans call for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Phase Three” chapter to shoot until October, although production could feasibly continue through the end of the year.

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.

John Carpenter to Host El Rey's Horror Short Showcase

John Carpenter to host The People’s Network Showcase horror edition on El Rey Network

El Rey Network announced today the launch of “The People’s Network Showcase: Horror Edition,” hosted by the master of horror himself John Carpenter, and featuring 10 short horror films submitted by rising independent filmmakers. The showcase will debut on Sunday, October 30, 2016 at 8pm ET, with an encore airing at 10pm ET.  It will air as part of El Rey’s month-long celebration of Horror, a program they’re dubbing “Blood, Sweat and Fears.”

“Whether for digital or linear, programming is no longer dictated from the top down. Audiences today know what they want, and in many cases are able to make it themselves,” said El Rey Network President and G.M. Daniel Tibbets.  “The People’s Network is our disruptive tool to demolish the wall between Professional and User Generated Content.”

“The People’s Network” celebrates filmmakers and artists from diverse cultures by giving them a platform to showcase their work. The new on-air series will feature interviews with the filmmakers and special vignettes of current working industry professionals who share the behind the scenes secrets of their craft to inspire future creators.

The Jumanji Cast Expands with Four ‘Jumanji Juniors’

Meet the rest of the Jumanji cast!

Meet the rest of the Jumanji cast!

Sony Pictures Jumanji cast expands today with the addition of four young stars that Dwayne Johnson dubs “Jumanji Juniors” in his social media announcement. Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Alex Wolff and Morgan Turner are joining a Jumanji cast that also includes, in addition to Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart and Jack Black.

As we previously reported, it would appear that the Johnson, Gillan, Hart and Black are playing the “avatars” of the kids actually playing the Jumanji game in the film. As such, it may very well be that these four new stars are the alter egos of those four jungle avatars. That would mean that at least one of the characters is playing with the avatar of another gender and, if the photos in Johnson’s original post (see below) are meant to correspond, three of the characters will be playing avatars of the opposite sex: Blain as Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Johnson), Madison Iseman is Moose Finbar (Hart), Alex Wolff as Ruby Roundhouse (Gillan) and Turner as Professor Shelly Oberon (Black).

RELATED: First Photo from the Set of the Jumanji Sequel!

Bad Teacher and Sex Tape helmer Jake Kasdan will direct from a screenplay by High Fidelity and Con Air scribe Scott Rosenberg with frequent Bad Robot executive producer Jeff Pinkner serving as a consultant. Matt Tolmach, William Teitler and Ted Field are producing. Mike Weber and Van Allsburg executive produce.

Jumanji is based on Chris Van Allsburg’s 1985 children’s book in which a magical board game causes jungle plants and creatures to invade a quiet American suburb. The 1995 original film was directed by Joe Johnston and starred the late Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce, Jonathan Hyde, Bebe Neuwirth, David Alan Grier and Patricia Clarkson. According to Johnson, the new film will serve as a sequel rather than a full reboot.

Jumanji hits the big screen July 28, 2017.

Is Hitler One of the Villains in Transformers: The Last Knight?

by Silas Lesnick

It sounds like Hitler may be one the foes in next year's Transformers: The Last Knight.

It looks like the Transformers may be facing off against Adolph Hitler in next summer’s sequel

Details on the now-in-production Transformers: The Last Knight continue to develop in curious ways. Following recent confirmation that the plot involves both King Arthur and Merlin comes evidence that the storyline features both Adolph Hitler and Sir Winston Churchill as well. Check out the below embed from FameFlyNet for a look at the film’s production at Churchill’s childhood home, Blenheim Palace.

Naturally, word of Nazi flags being raised at Churchill’s home has already caused a controversy, but director Michael Bay promises that things will make more sense once the full plot to the film is revealed.

“There’s a thing I saw in the paper about Blenheim,” Bay told BBC News“and I just want to say that people were not fortunate enough to read the script. They don’t know that Churchill, in this movie, is a big hero and Churchill would be smiling about last night.”

Although it has not been officially confirmed, recent video from the set, suggests that we might be seeing Sir Anthony Hopkins in the Churchill role. Could his childhood home being taken over by the Third Reich represent a parallel timeline that he’ll have to team with the Transformers and King Arthur to avoid? Time will tell, so check back for more details as they become available.

Paramount Pictures film, Transformers: The Last Knight is confirmed to also include the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox, Tyrese Gibson as Robert Epps, Stanley Tucci as Joshua Joyce, as well as a new role for Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Santiago Cabrera also have roles, as Liam Carrigan (Once Upon a Time), who plays King Arthur.

It is unknown whether or not Hitler himself will appear on screen or, if he does, who might be playing the role.

A few of the titular robots in disguise have also been confirmed to return, including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Drift, Hound, Crosshairs, Hot Rod, and Sqweeks for the Autobots, with Megatron, Barricade, and Onslaught for the Decepticons.

Blu-ray Review: Haunted Honeymoon

by Chris Alexander

Blu-ray Review: Haunted Honeymoon

Gene Wilder’s charming 1986 horror comedy Haunted Honeymoon comes to Blu-ray

Losing actor/writer/director Gene Wilder late last month was a heartbreak for a couple of reasons. First was the way he went, or at least the way his fans learned of his passing. Wilder died of complications due to Alzheimer’s disease, a condition most of us had no idea he had, one he kept very private. The other reason is tied to the first. Wilder kept his illness private so as not to cloud people’s worship of his signature role, that of Willy Wonka in the first film adaption of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory). Indeed, Wilder’s slightly sardonic turn as the eccentric confectioner is beloved by generations of children, young and old and it does hurt to know that man who gave us so much joy in that role suffered so horribly in his final years.

But now that we have said our goodbyes to Wilder, it makes sense to dig back into his vaults to look at some his other parts, some famous (Young Frankenstein), some infamous (The Waco Kid in Blazing Saddles) and some pushed into relative obscurity and ripe for re-evaluation. On the latter tip, Wilder’s 1986 horror comedy Haunted Honeymoon is a movie that needs more love. The film was co-written and directed by Wilder and starred his lady love, the late Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989, making this her final film role. Famously, the picture was a colossal failure, opening and closing within a week and garnering dismal reviews. Shame that. It seems more cynical ’80s audiences were expecting a more scatological Brooksian comedy, a revival of the saucier films that Wilder and Brooks made their names on in the 1970s. But Haunted Honeymoon isn’t that kind of movie. It’s a faithful quote on the 1940’s radio-era mysteries that it both quotes and sets its action within and its laughs and charm come from its sheer stone-faced absurdity and oddness. And co-writer Terrence Marsh’s production design is superlative, a character unto itself.


Haunted Honeymoon stars Wilder as Larry Abbot, radio drama superstar, who travels with his co-star and fiancee (Radner) to the looming mansion lorded over by his larger-than-life Aunt Kate (Dom De Luise in drag…and yes, the concept alone is funny enough to sustain the running time) along with various relations and hangers on, to help Abbot cope with his array of oddball phobias. But, as we learn from the opening moments, there’s a werewolf loose and Aunt Kate is determined to find out which one of the brood is the murderous beast. This set up is simply an excuse for Wilder and Radner to romp around, De Luise to mug and a first rate supporting cast – including the great Jonathan Pryce, Straw Dogs’ Peter Vaughn and Downtown Abbey’s Jim Carter – to parade around the looming, Gothic sets and engage in all manner of foolishness.

Haunted Honeymoon is a beautiful film to behold, with gorgeous costumes, the aforementioned Hammer-esque production design, Fred Schuler’s delirious cinematography and Wilder’s cheeky direction. All of these elements shine in Kino Lorber‘s new bare-bones Blu-ray release, giving us a crisp 1.85:1 HD print with rich colors and deep blacks; its one of the best Gothic-looking movies I’ve ever seen.

Ultimately, Haunted Honeymoon is Wilder’s love-letter to a simpler, more charming period of entertainment history laced with a gentle dash of blue humor and even a nod or two to the Italian giallo (dig those black leather gloves!). And it’s a snapshot of trio of performers and friends who are no longer with us (Wilder, Radner, De Luise) just having tons of fun and hoping that you will too.


Universal Pictures to Adapt Joe Hill’s Snapshot 1988

by Silas Lesnick

Universal Pictures has plans to adapt the Joe Hill novella Snapshot 1988.

Joe Hill’s novella Snapshot 1988 is planned to become a Universal Pictures film

A new Joe Hill adaptation is headed to the big screen today as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Universal Pictures is developing a feature film based on the author’s new novella, Snapshot 1988. According to the trade, Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard (who have previously teamed to script Oculus, Before I Wake and the upcoming Ouija: Origin of Evil) are in talks to provide the screenplay.

Set in the titular year, Snapshot 1988 follows a 13-year-old boy who begins taking care of an elderly woman that he thinks is suffering from dementia. In reality, the woman’s memories are actually being stolen by a supernatural foe called The Phoenician. 

Snapshot 1988 is set to be published in next month’s issue of Cemetery Dance.

The adaptation will be produced by Akiva Goldsman through his Weed Road banner with Jason Blum producing through Blumhouse. Greg Lessans is attached to executive produce.

Joe Hill, who has made a name for himself as an author of short stories, novels and comic books, is also the son of Stephen King. Hill’s work previously made it to the big screen with Alexandre Aja’s loose adaptation of Hill’s novel Horns. Hill’s comic book series Locke and Key nearly made it to television a few years back. A pilot was filmed for a FOX series with Mark Romanek directing. The pilot even had an official screening at Comic-Con International in 2011, but the show did not end up moving forward.

It is not mentioned whether or not Mike Flanagan might also be a potential directing candidate for Snapshot 1988. In addition to co-writing with Howard, Flanagan directed OculusBefore I Wake and next month’s Ouija: Origin of Evil. Look for the latter to hit theaters on October 21.

New Line Cinema Takes Fruit Ninja Movie Rights

New Line Cinema Takes Fruit Ninja Movie Rights

New Line Cinema takes Fruit Ninja movie rights

When we first reported on a Fruit Ninja movie back in May, many of you were skeptical that such a thing could happen, but now it has taken another big step forward towards actually existing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line Cinema has grabbed up the film rights to the big-screen take on the hugely-popular mobile app, which Australia’s Halfbrick Studios is looking to adapt as a live-action family comedy. 

Tripp Vinson (San Andreas, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) will produce the feature film through his Vinson Films production banner, with screenwriters JP Lavin and Chad Damiani (the in-development How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack) attempting to turn the rather simple interface of slicing fruit and avoiding bombs into a viable dramatic story with elements like characters, backstory, a through line and human emotion. Sam White and Tara Farney will executive produce.

This will mark a return to New Line for Vinson, who produced the Journey to the Center of the Earth films and San Andreas for the studio. The story is said to involve a team of misfits recruited to become Fruit Ninjas so they can — naturally — save the world.

With over 1 billion downloads and counting, Fruit Ninja is currently the second top-selling iOS game of all time

Doctor Who Spinoff Class to Debut October 22

by Silas Lesnick

The Doctor Who spinoff Class is headed to BBC Three October 22.

The Doctor Who spinoff Class will debut on BBC Three Saturday, October 22

It has been confirmed today that Class, the new Doctor Who spinoff, will debut on BBC Three Saturday, October 22. What’s more, it has been confirmed that Peter Capaldi will make an appearance as the Doctor on the show’s premiere episode, “For Tonight We Might Die.” The night will also see the debut of the show’s second episode, “The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo.”

“The Doctor Who family is growing,” says Capaldi, “and it’s fantastic to be able to welcome the young new cast of Class in to the Whoniverse.”

It’s a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them. And this incursion is only the beginning.

Charlie (Greg Austin), April (Sophie Hopkins), Ram (Fady Elsayed) and Tanya (Vivian Oparah), assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly), are charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as the Doctor (Capaldi) to guard against the creatures of nightmare that want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.

Patrick Ness has aimed to create intriguing and complex characters that have to navigate their way through more than just teenage hormones, exams and detention. Joining them as series regulars are Jordan Renzo (Chosen, Troubled), Pooky Quesnel (The A Word, Accused), Nigel Betts (Boy Meets Girl, Doctor Who). The first two episodes of the Doctor Who spinoff also feature Ben Peel (The Fall, Vampire Academy), Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter, Hollyoaks), Paul Marc Davies (Doctor Who, Torchwood), and Shannon Murray (The Totally Senseless Gameshow).

“At last, we can tell you a little more about ‘Class’!” says YA writer and Class creator Patrick Ness. “Though there are still many, many secrets to come. Many. Like, a lot. But of COURSE, the Doctor is in episode one! That’s how these things are done. Truly, though, I can’t wait for everyone to see the show; we’ve worked so hard and I’m so proud of it. Soon, soon…”

There are no details yet on how and when Class will make its debut domestically, but check back for further details on the Doctor Who spinoff as they become available.

Ride with Norman Reedus Season 2 greenlit by AMC

AMC today announced that it has renewed non-fiction travel series Ride with Norman Reedus for a second season, slated for 2017. Ride with Norman Reedus Season 2 will consist of six one-hour episodes featuring The Walking Dead actor and motorcycle and travel enthusiast Reedus as he takes viewers back on the open road to journey to amazing places and sample local cultures.

Season 1 featured actor Balthazar Getty, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, Mastodon singer/guitarist Brent Hinds, artist Jake Lamagno, custom bike builder Jason Paul Michaels, and artist/biker Imogen Lehtonen journeying to locales such as Death Valley, the Pacific Coast Highway, Appalachia, Louisiana, Texas, and the Florida Keys. Reedus and his guests took in the local flavor on their travels and went dune-buggying, rode the bike of the future, visited a moonshine distillery, met with a high voodoo priestess, and raced porta-potties. The season finale featured the legendary actor Peter Fonda, whose film Easy Rider first inspired Reedus to start riding motorcycles. Season 1 of Ride comprised of six episodes, averaged 800k total viewers per episode including 434k adults 25-54 in Nielsen live+7 ratings.

“We’re so excited to continue this journey with Norman Reedus,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. “Norman’s love of motorcycles and adventure, and his ability to connect with people are the drivers of this series, and we look forward to more great Rides next season.”

“The reaction to ‘Ride’ has been incredibly positive. I am glad to be able to show audiences a different side of me and we have gotten a great response to the candid conversation and the fact that it’s obviously not scripted,” said Reedus. “I feel like we are just getting started and there are so many amazing places we have yet to go – the opportunities for the show are endless.”

Norman Reedus is best known for starring as Daryl Dixon on AMC’s worldwide sensation, The Walking Dead, which starts its seventh season next month. Ride with Norman Reedus is produced by Left/Right Productions. Executive producers are Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, Anneka Jones (“This American Life,” “The Circus: Inside The Greatest Political Show On Earth,” “Odd Mom Out”) and Norman Reedus.

This series is part of a growing slate of non-fiction programming on AMC including the #1 talk show on television, Talking Dead,  the Robert Redford produced event miniseries The American West, the historical mafia docu-drama The Making of the Mob: Chicago, Kevin Smith’s late-night talk show Geeking Out, and the upcoming documentary series Heroes and Villains: The History of Comic Books, executive produced by Robert Kirkman and David Alpert.

Empire Conjures Up Two Doctor Strange Covers!

Empire conjures up two Doctor Strange covers

Empire Magazine has released the covers for their latest issue, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange front and center! Check out the Doctor Strange covers in the gallery below.

In addition, the outlet spoke to the actor who revealed he almost lost the role in the film. Before production began, and when Doctor Strange was set for a July 8, 2016 release date, Cumberbatch had signed on to play Hamlet in the autumn of 2015, putting the film’s summer 2016 release date in jeopardy.

“It just wasn’t possible,” director Scott Derrickson recalled to the outlet. “To his credit he said, ‘I can’t bail out of Hamlet. I’ve given my word.’”

Derrickson went on to explain that they spoke with a number of other previously rumored actors for the lead role including Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and Ryan Gosling, but later went to Kevin Fiege and said the role had to go to Cumberbatch. As a result, the release date was briefly delayed, and Cumberbatch got the role.

“If you can’t jump on board when the ride’s going past. that’s usually it,” Cumberbatch admits, “So the hugest compliment they paid me was to come back to me. It motivated me to try to fulfil their faith in me.”

Doctor Strange also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) as Baron Mordo, Benedict Wong as Wong, with Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) as The Ancient One and Mads Mikkelsen (“Hannibal”) as the villain Kaecilius. Rachel McAdams (The Vow), Michael Stuhlbarg (Pawn Sacrifice), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum), and Amy Landecker (“Transparent”) also star.

Doctor Strange opens in theaters on Friday, November 4, 2016.

Stephen King’s IT remake wraps production, new image

After a tumultuous development process, the first part of the new filmic adaptation of Stephen King’s IT has wrapped production. To celebrate, producer Barbara Muschietti (sister of director Andy Muschietti) revealed a new depiction of Pennywise on her Instagram feed, which we’ve included below along with several other pics from her feed that reveal new views of the set. Check out the IT remake photos in the gallery below!

The events of the film will be moved upward from the source material, which was set in both the 1950s and 1980s, and will be set in the present day with the late 1980s as the past setting.

Mama helmer Andy Muschietti is directing the film, which stars Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special) as Bill Denbrough, Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things”) as Richie Tozier, newcomer Sophia Lillis as Beverly Marsh, Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween) as Stan Uris, Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Eddie Kaspbrak, Chosen Jacobs (“Hawaii Five-0”) as Mike Hanlon and Jeremy Ray Taylor (42) as Ben Hanscom, the younger versions of the story’s protagonists.

Based on the novel by Stephen King, whose story recalls a promise made twenty-eight years ago that forces seven adults to reunite in Derry, Maine, where as teenagers they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Unsure that their Losers Club had vanquished the creature all those years ago, the seven had vowed to return to Derry if IT should ever reappear. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that summer return as they prepare to do battle with the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers once more.

The film is set to be released in two parts with Part One focusing on the group of teens called the Losers Club, while Part Two is set around the repercussions on these characters as adults. Stephen King’s IT Part One will be released on September 8, 2017.

Jason Goes to Development Hell: Friday the 13th Delayed Again

by Spencer Perry

Jason Goes to Development Hell: Friday the 13th Delayed Again

Jason Goes to Development Hell: Friday the 13th delayed again

In addition to delaying the upcoming Rings from an October release date to February 2017, Paramount has also delayed their upcoming Friday the 13th movie from January 13, 2017 to October 13, 2017.

Director Breck Eisner (The Crazies, Sahara, The Last Witch Hunter) was hired to direct the film in August. The film features a script by Prisoners and Contraband writer Aaron Guzikowski.

Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller spoke earlier this summer about where the script might take the beloved Jason Voorhees, saying:

““Aaron’’s story has great characters. …You kind of have to understand Jason Voorhees, so we go back and we kind of started over and work our way forward. Origin-ish, but it’s an origin that no one has seen before. Obviously Pamela’’s there, but it’’s a little bit different from what you’’ve seen before.””

The Friday the 13th franchise currently consists of the ten original films, the 2003 crossover Freddy vs. Jason, and, most recently, the 2009 reboot. There was also a short-lived television series that, despite its title, was unconnected to the plot of the film franchise. A new Friday the 13th television series was previously in development for The CW but has since been canceled.
