King Ghidorah hunts Millie Bobbie Brown in a new Godzilla: King of the Monsters clip. Creepshow adds some familiar faces to its cast. The Chucky TV show gets an update. Plus, a new vague tease for Godzilla’s scrap with Kong, and what’s to come on iZombie. To me, my spoilers!
Variety reports Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) is now in talks to direct a live-action remake of Disney’s Snow White from screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson.

Arquette will star in an adaptation of John Skipp and Dori Miller’s short story “Times Is Tough in Musky Holler”, where “a small town whose leaders once ruled through intimidation get their comeuppance”.
Lastly, Gould will star in “Skinwalkers” from writers Paul Dini and Steven Langford, “a tale about a man who considers a new weight-loss treatment that has unexpected complications”.

Season 1 of The Witcher has finally come to an end. And although I'm pulling a face here it has been an incredible journey! The cast and crew worked tirelessly throughout, everyone pitched in and brought their A game to set and I couldn't be more proud of you all. Speaking of my immediate team. Jacqui, Ailbhe and Leah are consummate professionals who worked extraordinary hours to bring the Witcher to life, they were non stop improving adjusting and evolving Geralt throughout. Thank you ladies for making this journey a good one. All of those 3 am wake ups were worth it! #GeraltofRivia #TheWitcher #Season1

Brad Dourif offered Bleeding Cool an update on Syfy’s upcoming Child’s Play television series.
Don Mancini‘s TV series is happening. It’s going to happen. Yes, yes absolutely. We’ve spoken more than once, and absolutely [I’m involved]. It’s his baby, he invented it, it came from him, he’s the real source. And he’s managed, on more than one occasion with a shift in the genre to really find an exciting and different way of doing it, and it’s always worked. I think it’s pretty good, and I don’t feel that way about most things. I mean with Chucky, we’re not talking about the deepest level of human nature or anything like that, but it’s great fun. And Don knows exactly the right tone, every time.
