‘Gambit’ and Three More Untitled Fox/Marvel Films Removed From Disney Slate

Amid a slew of release slate announcements, Disney removed four Fox/Marvel projects from its list of upcoming films, including a planned “X-Men” spinoff, “Gambit,” starring Channing Tatum.

The slate removal signals the end of 20 years of Fox films based around the “X-Men,” dating back to the original 2000 blockbuster that made Hugh Jackman into a star with his performance as Wolverine. 12 films in the franchise have been released, including the Oscar-nominated “Logan” and the “Deadpool” spinoff films. The series will conclude with the already-produced horror spinoff “The New Mutants,” which Disney moved from August 2019 to April 2020.

Moving forward, it is expected that any films involving Marvel characters owned by Fox will now be developed by Marvel Studios, though it will be a few years before they join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Gambit Officially Cancelled As Disney Drops It From Schedule

Having originally kicked off nearly two decades ago, the X-Men film series is getting ready to say goodbye. Next month, Dark Phoenix (which stars Sophie Turner, of Game of Thrones fame) is set to hit theaters, and next year, The New Mutants will reach the big screen, which is rumored to be the final entry in the X-Men universe before Disney and Marvel push the reset button.

While a handful of spinoff films managed to overcome development hell, one movie, in particular, has struggled to get off the ground. After years of planned cameos, Gambit, the card throwing, kinetic energy-manipulating mutant, finally made his debut in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. While Taylor Kitsch’s portrayal of the Ragin’ Cajun was not particularly well-received, some Hollywood filmmakers were keen on creating their own Gambit movie.

Over the past decade, numerous directors and producers have been attached to the project, including Rupert Wyatt

‘Gambit’ Is Dead; Disney Drops the X-Men Spinoff from the Schedule

A Gambit movie was always this weird thing. You had a character who had only been in one movie before--X-Men Origins: Wolverine--and now they wanted to give him his own movie with Channing Tatum on board to star. The film cycled through multiple directors including Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman, and Gore Verbinski, but no one stuck around to get the project off the ground even though there were times when Gambit appeared deep into pre-production. And now it’s dead. The film was previously slated for March 13, 2020, which was never entirely realistic with the …

‘Chaos Walking’: ‘Don’t Breathe’s’ Fede Álvarez Reportedly Brought On As A “Consultant” To Doug Liman On $15 Million Reshoots

The drama surrounding Doug Liman’s upcoming film “Chaos Walking” might actually be more interesting than the finished product. The film, which stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley (could you get a better duo of young actors to lead a new Ya franchise?), has been the source of a ton of behind-the-scenes reports, including the most recent news that the reshoots, which are currently underway, are the result of the studio being very displeased with the first cut.

Lionsgate enlists Fede Alvarez to assist Doug Liman with Chaos Walking reshoots

THR is reporting that Lionsgate has enlisted Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe and The Girl in the Spider’s Web director Fede Alvarez to assist Doug Liman on reshoots on the troubled sci-fi movie Chaos Walking.

Last week it was announced that “additional photography” was underway on Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley-headlined adaptation of Patrick Ness’ Ya novel at a cost in excess of $15 million, after studio executives deemed Liman’s original cut “unreleasable”.

The THR article states that Liman remains in control of the project and is directing the reshoots. However, Alvarez has reportedly provided Liman with extensive notes and the two worked together to plot new material. His role is said to be that of an on-set “consultant” for the duration of the three week shoot.

Chaos Walking was reportedly deemed “unreleasable” by Lionsgate

Back in August of 2017, director Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) kicked off production on Chaos Walking, an adaptation of Patrick Ness’ dystopian novel of the same name starring Tom Holland (Avengers: Infinity War) and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Last Jedi).

The project was originally intended to arrive in March of this year, only for Lionsgate to announce in April 2018 that the movie would be undergoing major reshoots which would likely push its release date back. A year on, and with reshoots finally due to get underway due to scheduling issues with its stars, all we’ve really heard is that the film is now targeting a 2020 release.

However, a report over at The Wall Street Journal (via The Playlist) has given some insight into the issues facing the production, stating that the original cut “turned out so poorly it was deemed unreleasable by executives who watched initial cuts last year.

Lauren LeFranc (‘Impulse’ showrunner) on dealing with sexual assault and trauma in a genre series [Exclusive Video Interview]

Lauren LeFranc reveals that “Impulse” got its start when director Doug Liman met with YouTube to try and right a cinematic wrong. According to LeFranc, he said that his 2007 science-fiction film “Jumper” was “the only movie that I’ve never really been happy with, and I think I can do better.” He had intended it to be “a coming-of-age story, and it became something different from the studio.” This new series, on which LeFranc serves as showrunner, was an opportunity to tell the story the way it was meant to be. Watch our exclusive video interview with LeFranc above.

Chaos Walking: Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley Movie Faces Delays and Reshoots

Joseph Baxter Apr 25, 2019

The onscreen team-up of Spider-Man’s Tom Holland and Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley, Chaos Walking, is not faring well behind-the-scenes.

Chaos Walking is as auspicious of a sci-fi film project as one can get, touting the headlining duo of Disney corporate tentpole stars in the celebrated current onscreen portrayer of Spider-Man, Tom Holland, and the central star of the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy, Daisy Ridley, with celebrated genre auteur Doug Liman in the director’s chair. However, the film has become shockingly snake-bit; something exemplified by a recent report that the delay-plagued $100 million-budgeted bonanza is currently in the midst of costly reshoots!

While the cameras started rolling for the Chaos Walking production back in the last quarter of 2017, once scheduled for a March 1, 2019 release date, it’s been a long time since there was any news on the project. Now, a recent report from The Wall Street

Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley's Chaos Walking Deemed Unreleasable, Can Reshoots Save It?

Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley's Chaos Walking Deemed Unreleasable, Can Reshoots Save It?
Things are not well, it would seem, with Chaos Walking. This movie, positioned as a possible franchise starter aimed at the young adult crowd, has been in the works for a long time and actually initially began filming in 2017, under the direction of Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), with current Spider-Man actor Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, known best as Rey in the current Star Wars trilogy, toplining the cast. That feels like a recipe for success. However, the movie is undergoing reshoots in order to try and salvage the situation, as the first cut was deemed "unreleasable" by the studio.

Just to set things up a bit, Chaos Walking, which is based on the book The Knife of Never Letting Go, takes place in a dystopian future where everyone can hear each other's thoughts, and no women are supposed to exist. Todd, a boy who lives in a town comprised only of men,

Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley Movie ‘Chaos Walking’ to Undergo Major Reshoots

As Tom Holland's new movie Avengers: Endgame prepares for the largest North American release in history, a first cut of his next film, Chaos Walking, was recently deemed "unreleasable" by Lionsgate insiders, according to the Wall Street Journal. Doug Liman directed the adaptation of Patrick Ness' popular Ya sci-fi series, which co-stars Daisy Ridley and Mads Mikkelsen. It's no secret that Chaos Walking has been a troubled production, as cameras started rolling way back in August 2017. It was initially slated to hit theaters on March 1, 2019, but a trailer was never even released, and …

Lionsgate to Spend Millions on Chaos Walking Reshoots as Current Movie Is "Unreleasable"

Chaos Walking is a film project that’s been trying to happen for quite some time now. The movie is based on the young adult book trilogy of the same name and has been in development since 2011. In 2016, the project got new life when director Doug Liman came on board, with Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) starring. The movie was set to come out March 1st (last month), but obviously that didn’t happen.

According to reports, Lionsgate took a look at the film and deemed it “unreleasable”. So now Lionsgate is looking to pour millions of dollars into the movie to do three weeks worth of reshoots to make the movie work, and that’s after already having spent $100 Million! That’s pretty harsh. And pretty bizarre considering the talent on board.

Although, there have been rumors of Liman being a little difficult to work with.

Tom Holland’s New Movie Said To Be So Bad That It’s Unreleasable

The trend for big movie adaptations for Ya novels seems to be on the wane, as the Peter Jackson-produced Mortal Engines failed to make much of an impression last December. However, Lionsgate must have had big hopes for Chaos Walking, the teen-oriented sci-fi from Edge of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman that counts Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley and Mads Mikkelsen in its cast with a script partially written by the acclaimed Charlie Kaufman.

With all these big names involved it’s a surprise, then, that the movie has been hit by a series of delays. For example, it was supposed to drop in theaters this March but Lionsgate quietly pulled it from its schedule. Thanks to Holland’s Instagram, we know that it’s currently engaged in reshoots, but what exactly is going on with Chaos Walking?

Well, The Wall Street Journal spoke with studio execs and the truth is not very encouraging.

Doug Liman’s $100M ‘Chaos Walking’ Undergoes Reshoots After First Cut Deemed ‘Unreleasable’ — Report

Doug Liman’s $100M ‘Chaos Walking’ Undergoes Reshoots After First Cut Deemed ‘Unreleasable’ — Report
When Lionsgate picked up the distribution rights to Patrick Ness’ “Chaos Walking” trilogy in 2011, it seemed that the home of such blockbuster adaptations as “The Twilight Saga” and “The Hunger Games” was lining up their next Ya-leaning smash hit. That market has, of course, changed in the intervening years — by the time the fourth film in the Jennifer Lawrence-starring “Hunger Games” series ended, each film’s box office had declined precipitously from the previous film; Lionsgate and Summit didn’t even make a final film in the similar “Divergent” series — and few studios are attempting the same multi-film treatment that ruled the box office just a decade ago.

It didn’t help that with “Chaos Walking” the film went through a few iterations on its way to the big screen, the kind that would slow down any film, let alone one arriving a touch too late. Robert Zemeckis was

‘I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson’ Review: Netflix’s Demented Sketch Show Is Pretty Great

While wading through the Netflix originals library, there are moments when the cornucopia of content Ted Sarandos initially envisioned becomes clear. Maybe it’s during the “BoJack Horseman” credits sequence. Maybe it’s when Debbie and Ruth have it out at the hospital in “Glow.” Maybe it’s right after a ginormous psychic octopus wraps its tentacles around Brit Marling. It’s a different moment for everyone, but at some point each open-minded Netflix subscriber must think, “Oh, this is what peak TV was supposed to give us: original ideas, fully realized — no matter how weird.”

Little did I know it, dear reader, but watching Sam Richardson step through a Christmas time portal into Ebenezer Scrooge’s bedroom so they can fight undead space skeletons is one of my moments. Sure, it helps he’s dressed like Tom Cruise in Doug Liman’s action gem “Edge of Tomorrow” and shouts
