Songbird

THR reports Riverdale’s KJ Apa and Feel the Beat‘s Sofia Carson have joined the cast of Songbird, Michael Bay’s covid-19 thriller set two years in the future. Details on their characters are not available at this time.

Rat/The Life of Chuck

According to Deadline, Ben Stiller has optioned the film rights to Rat, a short story from Stephen King’s Let it Bleed in which an aspiring writer makes a deal with a talking rat to complete his western novel — in exchange for the life of a loved one. The outlet also reports Darren Aronofsky is attached to produce a film adaptation of King’s The Life of Chuck, the story of a man dying of a brain tumour “whose life is segmented into several eerie supernatural chapter breaks” from the same collection.

Atomic Blonde 2

In conversation with Total Film (via Comic Book), Charlize Theron confirmed a sequel to Atomic Blonde is in development at Netflix.

We took [Atomic Blonde 2] to them and Scott Stuber [Head of Original Films at Netflix] was really interested in it. We talked to him about it extensively, and we’re in the process of writing it right now. That character was set up in a way where she didn’t really reveal much of herself. So I feel like there’s a lot of potential there. The bar’s pretty high, but we’re excited about it.

Untitled One-Location Horror Movie

Though details are sparse, Deadline reports Sam Raimi will produce a “contained” supernatural horror film set in a single location from director Rob Savage and screenwriter Micah Ranum.
