Corey Hawkins has joined a very peculiar take on a Dracula adaptation. More of Thor: Love & Thunder’s cast makes their way to Australia. Get a new look at Netflix’s adaptation of the Grishaverse. Plus, what’s to come on Riverdale and Nancy Drew. To me, my spoilers!
Last Voyage of the Demeter
Deadline reports Corey Hawkins will star in Andre Øvredal’s Last Voyage of the Demeter, a film focusing exclusively on the passage in Dracula where the Count is shipped from Carpathia to London. Details on his character are not available at this time.
Though details on the plot are currently under wraps, THR reports New Line is moving forward with The Parenting, a horror-comedy compared to Meet the Parents with an “LGBTQ twist.” Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins) is attached to direct from a script by Saturday Night Live’s Kent Sublette.
In conversation with Variety, Zendaya revealed her character will be “running from aliens” in the MCU’s third Spider-Man movie — although who knows when it comes to Marvel if the “aliens” are actually extra-terrestrial baddies or something else.
These things go by so fast. We still have a lot left to do. It’s like running from aliens and things you can’t see. Part of that is kind of fun. A lot of what we do is escapism, just being able to play a teenager again.
The Suicide Squad
James Gunn promises “you’ll be just fine” without seeing the 2016 Suicide Squad before his movie.
