The Justice League Dark movie, that Warner Bros is planning, has thus far lost both Guillermo del Toro and Doug Liman as potential directors. The pair had both been involved in developing the movie, with Liman the last to depart the project three months ago.
Since then, Warner Bros has been on the hunt for a new director.
It seems it may have found one, too. A new report suggests that – after considering the likes of Andres Muschetti and Damian Szifron (who made It and Wild Tales respectively) – that the shortlist is now down to Daniel Espinosa and Gerard Johnstone. The former is best known for Life and Safe House, the latter for Housebound.
The screenplay for the film – at least the current draft – has been penned by Michael Gilio, and it »
As with The Flash (now titled Flashpoint), Warner Bros. are on the lookout for a third director on its upcoming supernatural DC ensemble Justice League Dark following the departures of Guillermo del Toro and Doug Liman.
Well, it Beyond the Trailer’s Grace Randolph is to be believed, the studio has now narrowed its choice to two contenders: Safe House and Life helmer Daniel Espinosa, and New Zealand filmmaker Gerard Johnstone, director of the 2014 horror-comedy Housebound.
Justice League Dark was featured as part of Warner’s DC Films slate at the San Diego Comic-Con International back in July, and is said to be viewed as a priority within the studio, so hopefully we’ll get official word on a director soon.

Justice League Dark has been having a bit of a hard time getting off the ground. Once set to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, the project eventually fell into Doug Liman’s lap, at which point, it looked like things were good to go. However, the Edge of Tomorrow helmer shocked us all a few months back when he announced that he’d be walking from the film, citing scheduling conflicts as the reason for his departure.
Currently, Warner Bros. has yet to find a replacement, but from what we understand, the studio is aggressively searching for someone to fill the director’s chair and whoever they bring on board will “play a major role in the new” DC cinematic universe. For a while there, it sounded like It director Andy Muschietti and Argentinian filmmaker Damián Szifron were the top choices to replace Liman, but now we have another »

Justice League Dark — believe it or not — is still a movie that’s supposedly happening. For those unfamiliar, this is a team of of superheroes who skew more towards the horror side of things. Some notable members inclue Constantine, Frankenstein, and Swamp Thing.
This is a movie that’s been in the works for around five solid years. For the longest time, fan favorite helmer Guillermo del Toro was attached to the movie, and in 2015, he unceremoniously dropped out of said project. In his place was Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman, but it didn’t take long for him to hop off in order to focus on the adaptation of the Ya novel Chaos Walking. Now, it sounds like Warner Bros. may actually be closer to zeroing in on a director for the film. According to YouTuber Grace Randolph, who runs the channel Beyond the Trailer, they have two »

"When your friends invite you for dinner and you end up doing all the work," she wrote alongside the snap, which shows her cooking dinner while holding Reynolds' daughter on her hip. "#hitmansbodyguard #ryanreynolds #tbt."
It's not surprising that Reynolds handed the chef's hat to his Hitman's Bodyguard co-star. The actor came clean about his kitchen skills in a recent interview with Men's Health.

“Resistance is a key theme in this year’s documentaries,” said Tiff Docs Programmer Thom Powers. “We pay witness to rebels challenging the status quo in art, politics, sexuality, religion, fashion, sports and entertainment. They speak powerfully to our times as audiences seek inspirations for battling powerful and corrupt systems.”
Tiff’s 2017 documentary lineup goes deep into the lives of boundary-pushing characters — Grace Jones, Jim Carrey, Jane Goodall, and Eric Clapton, to name only a few of the most famous. But the celebrity factor isn’t enough to make a great film. What sets these docs apart is their directors’ ability to a bring fresh perspective.

“The Disaster Artist” screened in March as a work in progress at South by Southwest, where it received a standing ovation. Critics were impressed with Franco’s performance as Tommy Wiseau in the film about the making of Wiseau’s 2003 so-bad-that-it’s-good film “The Room.” A24 and New Line have given the film an awards-season Dec. 1 release.
The 10-film Midnight Madness section also includes “Brawl in Cell Block 99,” starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Carpenter; the world premiere of Brian Taylor’s “Mom and Dad,” starring Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair; Seth Smith’s “The Crescent”; Ryuhei Kitamura’s action thriller “Downrange”; and U.K. director David Bruckner’s “The Ritual,” with Rafe Spall and Robert James-Collier.

Ryan Reynolds is getting candid on his fit figure.
The Deadpool star covers the September issue of Men's Health, flaunting his biceps in a simple fitted T-shirt paired with dark wash jeans. In his accompanying interview with the magazine, he opens up about his diet and fitness routine, favorite cheat meal and cooking at home for his wife, Blake Lively.

"I am not innovative in the kitchen," he confesses. "If I cook, you'll have a structure fire. The firemen will kick down our door, take my wife away, and give her a better life."
Reynolds reveals his diet typically consists of eating "clean, whole foods" every two or three hours, but he admits he loves a good cheat meal every now and then -- and doesn't feel bad about it!

They are two of the Toronto International Film Festival’s wildest sections — for very different reasons — and this year’s slate of both Midnight Madness and Documentary offerings appear to signal another strong lineup for the festival. Thrills, chills, terror, and scares await movie-goers, all care of unbelievable real-life stories and slightly less true tales for genre fans of all stripes.
This year’s Midnight Madness section will open with Joseph Kahn’s provocative World Premiere of “Bodied,” and also offers up the World Premiere of “The Disaster Artist,” directed by James Franco and based on the making of Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 cult film, “The Room.” (The film previously screened as a work-in-progress at SXSW.)

When it was released in March, it drifted by like a final reel escape pod, sadly unnoticed by the ticket buying public. You see, at the time anticipation for another science-fiction alien themed horror was at fever pitch, with everyone screaming loud enough to be heard in space about the forthcoming Alien: Covenant, which promised a return to the haunted house frightfest of the original.
Now the noise has subsided, and the franchise to which Life is indebted has struggled to deliver on the promise of a stripped back return-to-form, it’s time to suit up and revisit Calvin the Martian, and the crew of the ill-fated space station, to take a look at why Life is worth living all over again.
The set-up is refreshingly simple, »

Anticipation just keeps building for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's first female standalone movie, Captain Marvel.
Larson initially played it coy at a junket for her latest film, The Glass Castle, saying, "I may be getting ready, I may not be getting ready! Anything I say I feel is hyper analyzed."
But she did open up on the expectations that come with playing a beloved character.
"I mean, I feel pressure in that it's a character that people love and are inspired by and I see that, and so I want to do right by that. And I want people to feel like their character is honored."

How can you try and change things, if life seems relentlessly bad?
Life, you don’t need us to tell you, can be pretty bleak at times. Be it problems at work, problems at home, problems with health, or something that doesn’t easily fit into any category. What can be worse is if you can’t see any logical solution, or only a bleak one. Most of us have had dark moments like that, and we daresay some of you are in the midst of them.
The problem too is the assumption from people around you – and there’s no callousness in this, it’s just life – may very well be that all is good. They don’t see the sleepless nights, they can’t tap into the endless worry. »
