A LEGO Batman Sequel Is Apparently In The Works

Be honest. You wanted spoilers, but you’re just watching that Avengers trailer over and over again, aren’t you? Well, when you’re done with that: Anne Hathaway joins the remake of The Witches. There’s tiny little teases of what to expect from Episode IX. Plus, Godzilla and Aquaman footage! Spoilers, we’re in the endgame now!

The LEGO Batman Movie 2

Chris McKay recently confirmed a sequel to The LEGO Batman Movie is in development on Twitter.

Doctor Sleep

According to THR, The Haunting of Hill House composers the Newton Brothers have been hired to score Mike Flanagan’s follow-up, Doctor Sleep.

The Witches

In addition to the Sesame Street movie, Variety reports Anne Hathaway has also been offered an undisclosed role in Robert Zemeckis’ remake of The Witches.

Mortal Kombat

Speaking with Heroic Hollywood, James Wan stated if he “can’t get the right resources” for his live-action Mortal Kombat movie, he “[doesn’t] want to do it.”

That has been such a tricky one just trying to get the script to a point. People don’t know this, fans don’t understand this, but there’s just so much on the business side of things… to try and get the right budget for it, and we want to make sure we have enough resources and the budget to do the film right.

If I can’t get the right resources and find the right filmmaker for it, I don’t want to do it. I’m so busy already. I don’t need to clutter my plate with more stuff if I don’t believe it can be done right.


THR reports Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) has signed on to direct Kate, a new action film for Netflix from executive producer David Leitch. The story concerns a fatally poisoned assassin (the titular Kate) hunting her killer through the streets of Tokyo before she dies.

Star Wars: Episode IX

Making Star Wars reports Episode IX will see the return of the Knights of Ren, a new type of elite stormtrooper, and Rey’s continued use of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber.

Child’s Play

Appearing as a guest on the Post Mortem podcast, series creator Don Mancini revealed he rejected a producer’s credit on the upcoming Child’s Play remake.

MGM retained the rights to the first movie, so they’re rebooting that. They asked producer David Kirschner and I if we wanted to be executive producers. We said no thank you, because we have our ongoing thriving business with Chucky.

Obviously my feelings were hurt. Ya know, I had just done two movies… forgive me if I sound defensive, they were both at 83 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though they didn’t get theatrical releases, they were well regarded. And I did create the character and nurture the franchise for three fucking decades.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Rodan makes a magma-dripping flyby in a brief new video from Monarch Sciences.
