David Bruckner teases his Hellraiser movie. Tom Hardy’s already looking forward to a third Venom. Get a look at Amazon’s I Know What You Did Last Summer TV series. Plus, what’s to come on Stargirl, and a snifter of new Shang-Chi footage. To me, my spoilers!
In a recent interview with SFX magazine (via Games Radar), director David Bruckner described his upcoming Hellraiser film as “something of a small reimagining.”
We can’t say anything about it yet. But it is something that we are actively working towards, and it is a joy and a dream for a filmmaker like myself to dive into that world. All I’ll say is that we are aiming to be as true as we can to the original material. [Clive Barker’s original story] ‘The Hellbound Heart’ is also a primary source of inspiration, as well as the original film. But then it is something of a small reimagining and we are currently working on it.
Taika Waititi’s Star Wars
Meanwhile, Taika Waititi described his upcoming Star Wars project to Wired magazine as “very me.”
It’s still in the ‘EXT. SPACE’ stage. But we’ve got a story. I’m really excited by it because it feels very me. I tend to go down that little sincerity alleyway in my films. I like to fool the viewer into thinking ‘ha it’s this’ and then them going, ‘Damn it, you made me feel something!’
Tucked away in an article about the series premiere of What If…?, THR reports Disney is now “looking for an actress to star opposite [Rosario] Dawson as Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren” from the animated Star Wars Rebels in the upcoming Ahsoka Tano live-action spinoff.
In conversation with THR, producer Charles Roven stated he believes another Justice League movie is still “a number of years away.”
Tom Hardy revealed to Esquire he’s now thinking about a third Venom movie.
I’m thinking about the third movie as well, because I think you need to write that at the same time. A third won’t be greenlit until the second is successful, but the studio were really, really pleased with number two.
Michael Keaton told Collider the set design on the upcoming Flash movie is “reminiscent, to some degree” of Tim Burton.
[It was] weirdly and ironically easy. A little bit emotional. Just a rush of memories. Without giving anything away, which I can’t, basically the first shot, not of the entire movie but let’s say the introduction [of Batman], is so good that when we walked on and started talking about a couple of shots and the angles, I went ‘whoa, this is big. This is great.’ I don’t even mean for me. Just the imagery, it’s great. And reminiscent, to some degree, of Tim Burton.

Star Trek: Discovery
David Cronenberg spoke to Entertainment Weekly about Kovich’s return (of a sort) in the fourth season of Star Trek: Discovery.
Well, Star Trek is quite a different thing because of course you have a series of directors. I was in three episodes last year and I think I’m in three this year. So your character continues from one place to another but every episode was directed by a different director. They all have a kind of different style but at the same time it’s a massive series with a huge history and so there’s a sort of momentum that goes with it.
I think the director is not as important in terms of sensibility for a show like that because so much is established, the style of it, the incredible sets that we have here in Toronto for Star Trek, and the director has no input into that, so it’s really quite a different machine. But, also, of course a lot of fun. I mean, you still have to learn your dialogue and you still have to get into your costume. So for the actors it’s still a similar thing.
