James Wan won’t produce the Resident Evil reboot after all. Thomas Mann teases what to expect from the live-action Lady and the Tramp adaptation. Gotham teases more death and destruction in its final season. Plus, a few more new snippets from Bumblebee, and what’s coming on Young Justice. Spoilers now!
Bloody-Disgusting reports James Wan is no longer attached to produce the Resident Evil reboot.
Lady and the Tramp
Speaking with Collider, actor Thomas Mann promised the live-action Lady and the Tramp remake stars “real dogs” instead of CGI approximations.
I really think it’s an enhanced version of the world that you saw before. Obviously, the human characters are a little more flushed [sic] out. They’re not these passing faces that you barely get a glimpse of. You get to know them a little bit better. And also, there are real dogs. Who doesn’t want to see two real dogs kiss over a plate of spaghetti? That is the main draw for me. You get the charisma of real dogs in there. Lady and the Tramp came out in 1955. I understand people who are like, “Don’t mess with the original,” but they aren’t re-animating it. It’s a live-action remake. So, why not?
Alita: Battle Angel
Dua Lipa has revealed she’s written an original song for the Alita: Battle Angel soundtrack titled “Swan Song” according to Coming Soon.
#ALITA BATTLE ANGEL! Official song by yours truly with the help of my friends Justin, Kennedi, Junkie XL & Mattman & Robin. So proud to be involved in such an incredible movie with a badass female protagonist! Thank you to the whole #Alita team for bringing this character to life pic.twitter.com/Db88ixN3c8
