Danny Boyle and Michael B. Jordan are teaming up for a wild take on a biblical legend. There’s still a chance Green Arrow and the Canaries could come to the CW. Plus, what’s to come on Snowpiercer, and a better look at Stargirl’s new Justice Society. Spoilers now!
Danny Boyle will direct Michael B. Jordan in Methuselah, a “new approach” on a story originally inspired by the biblical figure who lived to be 969-years old. While Variety’s report doesn’t expand on the film’s reimagined premise, a Deadline article from March 2019 states, “the idea is for Jordan to play a man who has managed to survive for hundreds of years, without showing the physical signs of age. In that time, he has accumulated vast intellectual knowledge, from multiple languages to the sciences, as well as survival skills.”
Jurassic World: Dominion
Appearing as a guest on the Fitzy & Wippa radio show, Sam Neill revealed two-weeks’ filming was completed on Jurassic World: Dominion before shutdown.
They got two weeks done. I was waiting in London for my stuff to start and then it became apparent it was going to close down in a day or two. I got a flight to Perth … made it as far as Sydney … and got into the quarantine thing.
We’ll start as soon as we can. We’re supposed to be in London but it’s a complete mess at the moment. I’d like to think that maybe we could start or restart in this part of the world and then finish off in the studio. We’re using the Bond stage to build these enormous sets in London. They’d like to use those, ideally, but if nothing is happening there, I don’t know when we can get started.
