Netflix’s weird Edgar Allen Poe crime film has found its iconic author. Brad Dourif and Jennifer Tilly return in a new teaser for Chucky. Plus, a look at the final season of The Walking Dead, and what’s coming in The Handmaid Tale’s season finale. To me, my spoilers!
The Pale Blue Eye
Harry Melling (The Queen’s Gambit, Harry Potter) has been cast as Edgar Allen Poe in The Pale Blue Eye, a mystery film at Netflix starring Christian Bale as “a veteran detective tasked with solving a series of murders that took place in 1830 at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Bale’s detective partners with a detail-oriented young cadet (Melling), who will later become the world-famous author the world knows today.” [Deadline]
Untitled Sci-Fi Project
Thor: Love and Thunder
In conversation with The Sydney Morning Herald, Taika Waititi stated “every idea” he had for a Thor movie was used in Love and Thunder.
Who knows if we do another one after this but I definitely feel like we put everything – every idea and every single ridiculous concept or gag or stunt or character – into this film. I couldn’t be happier with it. I think this might be funnier. Everything we did with Ragnarok, we’ve just multiplied it.
