Search for Top Talent Heats Up as Netflix and Amazon Increase Film and TV Shoots in Mexico

  • Variety
Epigmenio Ibarra proudly shows off the impressive new facilities of his 27-year-old production house, Argos Comunicación, located in an industrial zone outside Mexico City. He walks through one of six brand-new sound stages, a state-of-the-art suite where colorists are working on a series, a set-construction warehouse and more. A production has wrapped the day before, another will start the following week, and still another in two weeks.

Construction of the facilities was completed less than two years ago, just in time for the extraordinary explosion of the Mexican entertainment industry that followed the arrival of global companies like Netflix and Amazon. Not that Ibarra had an inkling of what was coming. As recently as five years ago, he says, the local television landscape was still dominated by Televisa and TV Azteca, and perhaps only five series were being produced in all of Mexico.

Today, Ibarra puts that number at 50. Many

Woody Allen’s ‘A Rainy Day in New York’ Finally Has a Release Date — in Italy

Woody Allen’s ‘A Rainy Day in New York’ Finally Has a Release Date — in Italy
For the first time since 1981, Woody Allen didn’t release a new movie last year. The beleaguered writer-director completed “A Rainy Day in New York” in 2017 but, following the resurfaced allegations that he molested his daughter in the early 1990s, Amazon Studios opted to shelve his latest project indefinitely. The film finally has a release date, but not in America — distributor Lucky Red has announced that it will release “Rainy Day” in Italy on October 3.

Allen signed a four-picture deal with Amazon a number of years ago, with “Rainy Day” being preceded by “Café Society” and “Wonder Wheel” as part of that agreement. The filmmaker recently filed a $68 million lawsuit against the studio after it opted to delay the movie’s release indefinitely, with his complaint stating that Amazon knew of the allegations against him when the two parties entered their agreement and that the accusations are false.

Ron Howard in ‘Serious Discussions’ for ‘Willow’ Sequel Series at Disney+

Ron Howard in ‘Serious Discussions’ for ‘Willow’ Sequel Series at Disney+
Ron Howard is in talks to bring a “Willow” sequel series to Disney+, with actor Warwick Davis — who played the title character in the 1988 film — set to return, TheWrap has learned.

Howard said that “serious discussions” for a continuation — not a reboot — from himself and “Solo” writer Jonathan Kasdan were ongoing at the upcoming streaming service, during an interview with the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast.

“Warwick is so cool and so good and he’s such a good actor that I really hope we get the chance to see the mature Willow in action,” Howard said.

Disney+ declined TheWrap’s request for comment on the project.

Directed by Howard and produced by George Lucas, “Willow” starred Davis as Willow, a reluctant farmer who plays a critical role in protecting a special baby from a tyrannical queen who vows to destroy her and take over the world in a high fantasy setting.

Ron Howard in Talks for ‘Willow’ Sequel Series at Disney+
Ron Howard and “Solo” writer Jonathan Kasdan are in negotiations for a sequel series to Howard’s 1988 feature “Willow” at Disney+, Variety has confirmed.

The original fantasy film came from a George Lucas story and was produced by Lucasfilm, so a Disney+ series adaptation would seem like a natural fit, given how many other Lucasfilm projects are in the works for the streaming platform.

In an interview on MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, Howard said that “serious discussions” were ongoing and confirmed that Warwick Davis, who played the titular character in the original, would be returning.

“Warwick is so cool and so good and he’s such a good actor that I really hope we get the chance to see the mature Willow in action,” Howard said.

“Willow” centers on a dwarf Willow Ufgood (Davis) who reluctantly forced into playing a critical role in protecting a special infant named

After ‘Rise of Skywalker,’ It’s Up to Disney+ to Carry the ‘Star Wars’ Banner

  • The Wrap
A Skywalker (or two) may rise later this year, but after Disney concludes its current “Star Wars” saga in December, that galaxy far, far away will be a bit further from the big screen.

“We will take a pause, some time, and reset,” CEO Bob Iger told Bloomberg last week about Disney’s plans for the franchise in movie theaters after “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” Enter Disney+, the company’s streaming play, which will hit the market on Nov. 12.

While LucasFilm and Disney figure out where “Star Wars” goes after “The Rise of Skywalker” on the big screen, Disney+ will be tasked with carrying on the legacy of the brand. That all begins on that same Nov. 12 launch date with “The Mandalorian,” the first-ever live action TV series set inside the “Star Wars” universe.

The first official tidbits from Lucasfim about the upcoming Disney+ (Disney Plus) Cassian Andor spy thriller series beyond Diego Luna in the title role were revealed on Thursday during Disney's investor conference.

‘Star Wars: Episode IX’: Watch the First Trailer for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’
The first look at “Star Wars: Episode IX,” called “The Rise of Skywalker,” is finally here.

A thousand generations live in you now. But this is your fight.” She then whips out a lightsaber, one that appears to be Luke’s, which Ridley teased during the panel.

Star Wars movies to go on hiatus after Episode IX

Despite the fact it already has a movie dated for 2020 and several projects in the works including new trilogies from Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, it seems the Star Wars saga is set to go on hiatus after Star Wars: Episode IX – on the big screen, at least.

Speaking to Bloomberg ahead of Star Wars Celebration, Disney’s CEO Bob Iger stated that: “We will take a pause, some time, and reset, because the Skywalker saga comes to an end with this ninth movie. There will be other Star Wars movies, but there will be a bit of a hiatus.”

Iger had previously warned fans to expect a “Star Wars slowdown” in the wake of the disappointing reception to Solo: A Star Wars Story, which reportedly led to Disney and Lucasfilm scrapping their plans for other Anthology
