Elsewhere in the world of video game adaptations, the Just Cause movie has tapped John Wick‘s writer for its script. M. Night Shyamalan offers an update on Servant‘s future. Plus, the Agents of SHIELD are caught in a time loop, and oh no, the Muppets have discovered video conferencing. To me, my spoilers!
According to Tom Holland, production has officially begun on the movie.
The Wrap reports Derek Kolstad (John Wick) is now writing a film based on the Just Cause video game franchise for Stuber director Michael Dowse. The series follows Rico Rodriguez, “an operative for a fictional U.S. covert agency sent to destabilize and overthrow oppressive regimes.”
Meanwhile, Bloody-Disgusting reports production has wrapped on Isolation, a new horror anthology film set “many months” into the future of the current covid-19 pandemic. Contributing directors include Dennie Gordon, Larry Fessenden, Bobby Roe, Andrew Kasch, Zach Passero, and Christian Pasquariello.
Bloody-Disgusting also has a poster for Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor ahead of the trailer coming later today.
The Barge People
A holiday in the British countryside is ruined by aquatic humanoids straight outta Innsmouth in the trailer for The Barge People, coming to VOD August 19.
M. Night Shyamalan has provided an update on the progress of season two (and good news about the show’s future)…via water bottle?
Getting ready to finish shooting season 2 of @Servant this fall. During quarantine worked out the conclusion of our show on the board in our library. We have started our writer’s room for season 3 & 4. I love working on this show. Learning a ton about storytelling. pic.twitter.com/vrYLWt9nqE
