“….we’re talking about doing a remake of a movie. It’s weird, a studio offered us to do a sequel to this huge comic-book thing.

Gunn’s brother Brian Gunn and cousin Mark Gunn are writing the screenplay. James Gunn will produce the project in between scripting “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” and starting production on the Disney-Marvel tentpole, which he will direct next year.
Gunn’s longtime collaborator David Yarovesky will direct the film, and The H Collective will fully finance and produce alongside Gunn and his Troll Court Entertainment. Brian and Mark Gunn, Dan Clifton, and The H Collective’s Nic Crawley will executive produce.
The horror pic is expected to go into production in the spring of 2018. Gunn directed the 2006 horror film “Slither” and the 2010 superhero comedy-drama “Super.” In between 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” and 2017’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” Gunn also penned and produced the horror film “The Belko Experiment,” which was released in March.

In response, Fox’s “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds tweeted a picture of himself being escorted out of Disneyland with the caption
In a statement issued Thursday, Warrior Poets partners Jeremy Chilnick and Matthew Galkin said, “On behalf of Warrior Poets, we as partners have always supported our company and its endeavors. As of today, Morgan Spurlock will be stepping down effective immediately.”
The duo continued, “We will continue to lead the company as equal partners, producing, distributing & creating from our independent production company.”
All three dudes were centrally involved with 2007’s “Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.” If this new movie also seems to have a whole lot of Aliens and Predators running around, well, it’s not the kind of joint you expect originality from, in narrative or even stylistic terms. It is, however, a goofy hybrid that’s never dull and sometimes flat-out ridiculous, never taking itself so seriously for its logical shortcomings to feel truly embarrassing
But the impact of film on the cinematography race doesn’t stop there. Also in strong contention are “The Beguiled,” “Call Me By Your Name,” “Wonder Struck,” and “Wonder Woman,” all period pieces shot in a variety of styles that particularly benefited from the texture and warmth of 35mm film. At the same time, “The Post,” “Murder on the Orient Express” (another 70mm spectacle), “The Florida Project,
So, making a list of the 50 best episodes of the year is, as always, a futile task. As we’ve documented throughout the year, there are hours upon hours of innovative, entertaining programming being offered up every day. Even in monthly installments, highlighting the gems of the podcast world is tricky.

Back in June, when we selected the top 50 at the halfway point of the year, that list could easily have sustained through the final six months
“Annabelle” director John Leonetti helmed the film, based on the book by Tim Lebbon. Producers are Robert Kulzer, Alexandra Milchan and Scott Lambert. Constantin CEO Martin Moszkowicz is executive producer.
“The Silence” centers on a family struggling to survive in a world terrorized by a deadly, primeval species who have bred for decades in the pitch darkness of a vast underground cave system, hunting only with their acute hearing. As the family seeks refuge in a remote haven where they can wait out the invasion, they start to wonder what kind of world will remain when they’re ready to emerge. Shipka plays a deaf girl who provides the only hope of survival.
“’The Silence’ complements our original production slate as we ramp up towards eventually releasing approximately 15 films per year,” said Global
For the Hitlist, which is a list of the 90 best already-produced specs of 2017, Verve ranked first among agencies, repping 17 of the writers on the list. For the Blacklist, which is a list of the best specs that have yet to be produced, Verve ranked second, trailing only CAA and repping 14 of the specs appearing on the list.
“Thrilled that our hard work and love for the writer business has been recognized by the best readers in town!” said co-founder Bryan Besser.
To most agencies, these lists serve as a benchmark to measure their standing in the biz in terms of their clients’ productivity. For the past several years, Verve has held its own,
Vinciquerra’s memo followed 21st Century Fox chief Rupert Murdoch’s public assertions in a conference call Thursday on the heels of the Disney deals announcement that the company would be looking to partner with studios such as Sony and Warner Bros. after selling off the bulk of its entertainment properties to the Walt Disney Co. Speculation has emerged on the fox lot that 21st Century Fox could use profits from the Disney deal to fund the acquisition of a new studio.
The Spe chief also wrote, “we did take a run at the Fox assets when we learned of their availability, and will continue to aggressively look for new avenues of growth for the studio
“The word tectonic has been overused to describe many deals, but in this case it applies,” said Hal Vogel, a veteran media analyst. “It’s one of those rare times you can feel the tectonic plates moving.”
The combined companies will have access to a blue-chip list of popular film franchises; their vault will encompass the Simpsons, X-Men, the Avengers, Avatar, Family Guy, Star Wars, Alien, and scores of family entertainment titles. That leaves the likes of Sony and Paramount looking downright scrawny in comparison. It also helps explain why Lionsgate tried to merge with Hasbro earlier this year only to abandon the plan after a dispute arouse over the price.
“These studios are all looking a lot smaller than they used to
Disney is getting two groups of channels from Fox: FX Networks and National Geographic Channels. FX is the home of critically acclaimed, edgy series from “American Horror Story” to “Fargo”–exactly the kind of content Disney lacks. Nat Geo has just begun to broach that business with scripted fare like “Genius,” but it’s a classic brand that fits perfectly with Disney’s portfolio, and one that is already translating nicely to digital platforms like Snapchat.
That they may represent the priciest assets in the whole deal is less a reflection of their future worth and more a testament to how valuable linear channels have been over the past decade, given the billions

“He came out of the bathroom with a towel at first wrapped around him, which he dropped,” Thomas tells Variety. “He was standing there naked. I think I almost collapsed, actually. It was the first time I had ever seen a naked man. I was mortified. I didn’t know what to do.
Speaking to Variety, the women described predatory incidents involving Hoffman that fit into a pattern of alleged behavior that has emerged in the wake of previous sexual-misconduct claims against the now 80-year-old actor.
Representatives for Hoffman did not make him available to provide comment for this story. In a letter to Variety’s owner Penske Media Corp., Hoffman’s attorney Mark A. Neubauer of Carlton Fields Jordan Burt called the accusations against the actor “defamatory falsehoods.”
Thomas was 16 years old and a high-school classmate of Hoffman
