Appearing as a guest on The Matthew Aaron Show podcast, Dean Devlin stated he has “excused” himself from both the Independence Day and Stargate franchises.
I really don’t know, after Geostorm I really came to the realisation that I’m not the kind of guy who should ever work at studios, so I excused myself from both Stargate and from Independence Day, so they may be going forward but I don’t know, I’m not involved any more.
J.J. Abrams and Overlord director Julius Avery are re-teaming for a “superhero thriller” titled The Heavy. Though no details on the plot are available at this time, the film is based on an original script from Daniel Casey (The Passenger) and will be co-produced by Bad Robot and Paramount Pictures. [THR]
Coming Soon reports a film adaptation of Spamalot, the Broadway musical based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail, is now in development at Fox. Casey Nicholaw is slated to direct, based on a new screenplay from Eric Idle.
Deadpool & Wolverine
During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ryan Reynolds stated Wolverine is “alive and well in my timeline”, and that he’s still actively pursuing Hugh Jackman to reprise his role for a crossover movie.
I think convincing Hugh of that would be a near-impossible feat, but there’s no human being I love more than Hugh Jackman in that universe, and equally so as a friend. He’s just the best. I already miss him as Logan, so I’m one of those guys that whenever I see him, I’m like, “Come on, man. Just one more. Come on. We’ll do it together. It will be fun. Come on! On three. Here we go, together. One, two, three, together,” and it’s always just me saying it.
Meanwhile, a new Deadpool 2 clip aired before an interview with Zazie Beetz on this week’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
