Screen Daily reports Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth will star in Felix, a horror film from producer Joe Carnahan described as “Super 8 meets Child’s Play.” Directed by John Kissack and written by Casey Giltner, the story concerns “Charlie and his best friend Jimmy” who “are making a film and dream of becoming big-time Hollywood directors. When Charlie’s father finds an old ventriloquist’s doll named Felix among his late mother’s belongings, Charlie and Jimmy cast the doll as the creepy antagonist. Through a chain of increasingly sinister and disturbing events the family discovers that Felix has a mind of his own and it’s up to Charlie and Jimmy to rid their family of an ominous force.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
When asked to reveal the villains of Multiverse of Madness, Sam Raimi suggested “altered” versions of Doctor Strange, Wanda and Baron Mordo.
Well, there’s iterations of our characters throughout the multiverse. So, if I were to say Strange…I’m not really supposed to answer this question, but I might be saying altered Strange. Same with Wanda and Mordo. But I would say, at different times, all of the above.
