The Tiger’s Apprentice
Michelle Yeoh and Sandra Oh have joined the voice cast of The Tiger’s Apprentice, an upcoming film adaptation of Laurence Yap’s children’s book. Though details on Yeoh’s character are currently unavailable, Oh is said to play Mistral, “an exiled dragon living in San Francisco.” [Empire Online]
The Kane Chronicles
On the author’s official site, Rick Riordan revealed he has teamed with Netflix for a film adaptation of The Kane Chronicles, a trilogy of YA novels in which a pair of estranged siblings accidentally unleash the Egyptian god Set onto North America.
Deadline reports Malcolm McDowell will star in The Benefactor, an upcoming horror film from David Carson in which “a once-prolific painter (McDowell) takes up an artist residency after the death of his wife. However, he soon fears that the house may be haunted and that its ghosts are driving him to madness”
Happy Death Day 3
In conversation with Empire, Christoper Landon revealed the working title for a potential third Happy Death Day movie is Happy Death Day to Us.
It’s called Happy Death Day to Us. That is the working title.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods
During a recent panel at DC FanDome, director David F. Sandberg promised the Shazam sequel will focus on the extended Shazam Family.
Now they’re all superheroes, they’re all a family with superpowers. And now we finally get to see that. We only got a glimpse of that in the first movie, so that’s something to look forward to.
During a separate panel at DC FanDome, producer Barabara Muschietti confirmed Ezra Miller’s Flash movie “restarts everything” for the DCEU.
Well, I want you to go see it, so I’m not going to tell you a lot. But what I will tell you is that it’s a ride. It’s going to be fun and exciting and there are a lot of DC characters in it. Flash is the superhero of this film because he is the bridge between all of these characters and timelines. And in a way, it restarts everything and doesn’t forget anything.
Tom Holland provided an update on the Uncharted movie in a recent Instagram Live post.
Filming is going so well, it is going so well. The film is, like, everything I ever dreamed it would be. You know, I don’t know if you guys played the games but I was such a huge fan of the games and it’s been going so well.”
I do have the biggest bruise of all time though, on my leg, but it’s in a bit of a revealing area for Instagram Live – I think I would get shut down by Instagram, but yeah, it is a glorious bruise.
