Joe Russo offered an update on the Grimjack feature film he’s co-directing at Amazon.
We’re working. I mean, those are all in development. Obviously, everything’s slowing down because everything is shut at the moment. But you know, we’ve got a draft on Grimjack that’s in for notes at Amazon and we’re just moving the project forward.

A new Ghostbusters: Afterlife Ecto-1 ornament unveiled by Hallmark comes with a remote-controlled ghost trap which presumably plays a part in the film.
Tremors: Island Fury
Appearing as a guest on the Saved by Nostalgia podcast, Michael Gross confirmed Tremors: Island Fury is still scheduled for an October 2020 release date.
[It’s] anticipated to come out in October, around Halloween of this year. As far as I know, it’s not been pushed back, since the editing process is something that doesn’t necessarily need a full studio to work on. Universal is by and large shut down – its theme parks, its movie and television production are down and out right now – but I think this post-production is still continuing.
Deadline has our first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ryan Kwanten in 2067, an upcoming sci-fi thriller in which “a world plagued by disease after climate change has forced the adoption of artificial oxygen.”
We also have a new production featurette on The Willoughbys, available to stream today on Netflix.
Deadline reports the season premiere of NOS4A2 has been pushed back three weeks and is now scheduled to debut in June. In consequence, Creepshow’s second season will air over six weeks on AMC instead of three.
The Haunting of Bly Manor
According to Mike Flanagan on Twitter, there is currently “no reason” The Haunting of Bly Manor will be postponed by Netflix.
Going great. Still on schedule, we wrapped before the shutdown and post production has carrying on from home. The show is shaping up wonderfully, I'm thrilled with it. At the moment no reason to think it'll be pushed. @netflix will announce the release date when they're ready.
