Universal continues its quest to bring back characters from the classic Universal Monster movies. The latest is a new Van Helsing movie which, thankfully, won’t have anything to do with the terrible 2004 movie starring Hugh Jackman. This new Van Helsing comes from producer James Wan and director Julius Avery, who helmed Overlord.

‘Jump Street: Now For Her Pleasure’ is Apparently the Title of the Female ‘Jump Street’ Spin-Off

Word came out today that Marvel Studios is developing an R-rated Deadpool 3, but buried in that original report was a separate piece of news we hadn’t heard before. Sony’s planned female-led Jump Street spin-off reportedly has a title, and it’s appropriate given the franchise’s penchant for humor: Jump Street: Now For Her Pleasure. I guess Jump Street: Ribbed For Her Pleasure may have been a step too far. Did you forget that Sony was developing a spin-off of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s 21 a...
