Martin Scorsese Will Shoot ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ in February 2021

The behind-the-scenes saga of Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon has been a bit of rollercoaster. The pic, based on the true story of a series of murders of wealthy Osage people in the early 1920s, was originally set up at Paramount and was supposed to start shooting in March 2020. Of course, the coronavirus destroyed that March shoot date, and then Paramount got cold feet about the film’s ballooning budget of $200 million. Apple TV+ then swooped in to save the project. Now, the movie...

‘Star Trek’ Reboot From Noah Hawley is Now On Hold

Noah Hawley‘s Star Trek movie, which isn’t to be confused with the long-delayed Star Trek 4, is now on hold. Paramount actually has three different Trek movies on the backburner: Star Trek 4, the Star Trek movie that Quentin Tarantino was going to direct, and Hawley’s movie. The fate of all three remains in doubt now, and sources state that one of the reasons for the delay of Hawley’s film is that the plot involves a deadly virus, which audiences might not be in the mood for anytime soon. Ok...

Ben Affleck to Direct ‘The Big Goodbye’, About the Making of ‘Chinatown’

The Big Goodbye, the excellent, recently-published book about the making of 1974’s Chinatown, is headed to the screen. Ben Affleck will return to the director’s chair to helm the project, and he’ll write the script, too. Lorne Michaels (yes, that Lorne Michaels) is producing. This is sure to be a high-profile project, as it’ll focus on the making of one of the best movies Hollywood released in the ’70s, and will also feature figures like Roman Polanski and Jack Nicholson as main characters. ...

No, ‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Will Not Be Blowing Up a Historical Bridge and Christopher McQuarrie Has a Very Long Explanation for It

The Mission: Impossible franchise has done it all: it has crashed motorcycles, blown up trucks, and dangled its star Tom Cruise out of planes, helicopters, off cliffs, and out of the tallest skyscraper in the world. So it was almost unsurprising when reports came out that the Mission: Impossible 7 crew were planning to blow up a bridge in Poland. But the film production was met with immediate backlash when it was reported that said bridge was an 111-year-old historical landmark, a piece of the ...

CBS All Access Adds Over 70 Shows from Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon & More, Will Be Rebranding in 2021

Among the plethora of streaming services now available, CBS All Access was probably the one with the most disappointing library. Sure, they have good originals like the new Star Trek shows and the reboot of The Twilight Zone, but otherwise, it’s mostly a collection of old CBS shows and other TV series that have been endlessly licensed at all the other streaming services. But that changes today. CBS All Access has added over 70 new shows from Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon and other channels f...

Ryan Reynolds-Shawn Levy Time Travel Movie Jumps From Paramount to Netflix

In yet another sign of the times, the Ryan Reynolds–Shawn Levy time travel movie is time traveling from Paramount to Netflix. There was a time, not so long ago, where the thought of a major studio movie with a big star going right to Netflix would be unthinkable. But studios have grown warier and warier of projects that don’t already have franchise brand recognition. And now, Paramount’s loss will be Netflix’s gain.

Unmade ‘Terminator Genisys’ Sequels Would Have Been “Trippier” and Focused on the Time Loop, Says Co-Writer

The Terminator film franchise has been a mess for years. James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day was such an incredible flex – a stone cold action/sci-fi classic and a franchise-redefining powerhouse that pushed visual effects to the brink of what was possible at the time – that all other Terminator sequels have paled in comparison. Each of the sequels have little moments that shine, but overall, Judgment Day simply casts too large a shadow for them to escape. Even when Cameron was directly ...
