Plus, a creepy new clip from Brightburn, and the final two promo pictures for Game of Thrones. Spoilers, away!
What We Do in the Shadows and Legion star Jemaine Clement has joined the cast of the Avatar franchise as Dr. Garvin, “a marine biologist on Pandora.”

THR has word child stars Iain Armitage and Mckenna Grace have joined the voice cast of Scoob as “a young Daphne and Shaggy,” respectively. Amanda Seyfried and Will Forte will voice their adult counterparts.
Dan Stevens will star alongside Judi Dench and Isla Fisher in Blithe Spirit, an upcoming genre comedy in which a novelist working on his first screenplay (Stevens) is haunted by the spirit of his first wife, Elvira, after hiring a medium (Dench) to hold a séance for “inspiration.” [Bloody-Disgusting]
Speaking with Indiewire, Bill Murray stated he’d appear in the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel/reboot if asked.
I was in that movie (the 2016 reboot) just because they asked me, and I knew if I said no, I was saying I didn’t support that movie. I felt like, ‘OK, I’m going to support them because I support them as people. So I did that one and I would do this next one.’
Untitled John Carpenter Film
In a recent interview with Collider, John Carpenter stated he’s interested in directing “a little horror film” or “a big adventure film.”
I don’t have one scheduled but I’m working on things. I made a lot of movies and I got burned out and I had to stop for a while. I have to have a life. Circumstance would have to be correct for me to do it again. I’d love to make a little horror film… that would be great. Or a big adventure film. It would be a project that I like that’s budgeted correctly. Nowadays they make these young directors do movies for $US2 ($3) million when the movie is written for $US10 ($14) million. So you have to squeeze it all in there and I don’t want to do that any more.
