In related news, British tabloid The Sun reports Grace Jones, who played May Day in 1985’s A View to a Kill, was meant to have a cameo in the film, but immediately quit the production after realising how few lines she’d been given.
Black Panther 2
The honest answer to that is that is pure rumour and speculation, because Mr. Coogler is just only in recent weeks sitting down at his keyboard and beginning to outline the movie. It’s early, so nothing is set yet in any way that far, because Mr. Coogler is sitting down and will share it with Nate Moore and myself in coming weeks.
Untitled Dune Project
Brian Herbert, author and son of Frank Herbert, revealed there’s yet another, “significant” Dune-related project on the way (outside of the in-the-works Bene Gesserit spinoff series).
No specific details were given so it’s unclear what form this one would take but he promised the official announcement would come soon. He also noted “filming is going very well” on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune film.
I just signed a significant new Dune franchise contract, and the formal announcement will be soon. Separately, for the first movie of the novel DUNE, the filming is going very well. Also, a new tabletop game is proceeding at a good pace, and a digital game is in the works. pic.twitter.com/rYhMUiNvec
