  1. “John Wick” star Keanu Reeves has been spotted at Berlin’s Potsdam Babelsberg Studios ahead of filming a fourth “John Wick” feature for Lionsgate. Reeves, who recently shaved off his signature Wick hair, will commence filming in Berlin and Paris on the movie in June with additional filming locations to take place in Japan and New York City. The last film saw Wick, betrayed and shot, joining forces with Laurence Fishburne’s Bowery King with plans to take the fight directly to the High Table. Writer Derek Kolstad is not involved in this fourth or a planned fifth entry but says he
  2. Chloe Zhao’s “Nomadland” has easily emerged as the favorite by a country mile to take the Best Picture Oscar later this month. The drama won four prizes including, best picture, on Sunday at the British Academy Film Awards. The title also took gongs for director, actress and cinematography. Other winners included “Promising Young Woman” for best British film, Anthony Hopkins for best actor, and Remi Weekes nabbed best British debut for his immigrant horror drama “His House”. Meanwhile “Nomadland” also took the top prize at the Director’s Guild Awards with Zhao winning the top ho
  3. Cate Blanchett will team with “In the Bedroom” and “Little Children” director Todd Field on the drama “TAR” which Field wrote and will direct for Focus Features and Emjag Productions. The project will mark the acclaimed Field’s first project in fifteen years. He has been linked with others like “The Creed of Violence,” but they never took off – resulting in this Malick-sized absence. Field, who started out an actor in films like “Eyes Wide Shut,” also scored Oscar nominations for both of his directorial efforts. Set in Berlin, production on “TAR” will begin in September with plo
  4. Attack the Block” and “The Kid Who Would Be King” director Joe Cornish has signed on to write and direct the long-gestating film adaptation of “Kingsman” and “Kick-Ass” creator Mark Millar’s “Starlight” at 20th Century Studios. The story follows intergalactic hero Duke McQueen who saved the Earth decades ago. Upon his return though, no one believed his story. Years later, after he has long settled down and had a family, he is called upon for one final adventure when his old rocket shows up. Simon Kinberg, Audrey Chon and Nira Park are producing. Cornish also penned Steven Spielb
  5. “Kong: Skull Island” director Jordan Vogt-Roberts and acclaimed writer Brian K. Vaughan have become attached to a live-action adaptation of the massive anime and merchandising franchise “Gundam” for Netflix and Legendary. The original “Mobile Suit Gundam” series began in 1979 and is set in the Universal Century, an era in which people have emigrated to space colonies because of a growing population on Earth. Those living in the colonies seek their autonomy and launch a war of independence with battles fought by piloting robots known as mobile suits. The series is a cultural icon in J
  6. Lucy Liu is returning to the big screen, the actress set to play a villain named Kalypso in the upcoming “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” for Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line and DC Films. This sequel once again stars Zachary Levi as the adult version of teenager Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who transforms into a superhero. The character is the second daughter of the titan Atlas and sister to Hespera, the lead villain being played by Helen Mirren. Rachel Zegler also stars. David F. Sandberg is back as director while Henry Gayden is doing the script. Liu has spent the past decade mostly d
  7. Paramount Pictures has made some big changes to its release date calendar today with some big delays in store for its tentpoles. “Top Gun: Maverick” has been pushed back a further four months from July 2nd to a new date of November 19th. That bumped “Mission: Impossible 7” from that November slot with that film now opening May 27th 2022. The move has also pushed the eighth “Mission: Impossible” from November 2022 to July 7th 2023. The Henry Golding-led “G.I. Joe” spin-off “Snake Eyes” has been moved up by three months from this October to July 23rd. The “Dungeons & Drag
  8. Zhang Yimou’s historical spy thriller “Cliff Walkers” has targeted an April 30th U.S. release, day-and-date with its China release. Quan Yongxian’s script is set in the 1930s in China’s snowy northeast, known then as the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo. Four Communist party special agents return to China after receiving special training in the Soviet Union. The moment they parachute in, they find they’ve been sold out by a traitor and are now in deep water.
  9. This weekend sees the release of Neil Burger’s “Voyagers,” a sci-fi thriller that’s essentially described as “Lord of the Flies in space”. The film follows a group of teenagers sent on a long expedition to colonize a distant planet with the goal of saving the human race. As time goes by, they begin to explore their primitive natures and soon fear, lust and a desire for power emerge and things descend into chaos. That seems like a movie that will likely score an R-rating if taken to its logical extension, but the film released is a PG-13. Speaking with Collider, Burger says they origi
  10. While some fans have been frustrated by the most recent delay of Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow,” the move from May 28th to July 9th is expected to have a big impact on the film’s box-office projections. The Observer and The Numbers report that had the film stuck to its original late May date, it was projected to take only a $45 million domestic gross in total. With the shift to July 9th, it’s now tracking to earn around $170 million at the North American box office including a $63 million opening weekend. Those projected earnings also don’t include any potential revenue from the Premi
  11. Twisted Pictures, the production company behind the “Saw” film franchise, are reportedly in active development on a tenth movie in the horror franchise. The latest issue of Production Weekly shows that a new film named “Saw X” is in active development at the studio with Oren Koules and Mark Burg once again producing. Though considered to be in active development, the studio could well postpone or cancel it should the Chris Rock-led “Spiral: From the Book of Saw” underperform. That film is currently slated to hit cinemas on May 14th
  12. William Belleau (“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”), Louis Cancelmi (“The Irishman”), and Grammy-winning singer-songwriters Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson have joined the cast of Martin Scorsese’s thriller “Killers of the Flower Moon” at Apple Original Films. Set in 1920s Oklahoma, the film depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation – a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror. Belleau will play an Osage rancher with close ties to the Burkhart family. Cancelmi is Kelsie Morrison, a local hustler and friend of Ernest Burkhart (Leonar
  13. Italy has officially abolished film censorship, scrapping government legislation that has been in place since 1913. Said legislation has allowed the government to censor scenes and ban movies such as Pier Paolo Pasolini’s “Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom” and Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Last Tango in Paris”. Culture Minister Dario Franceschini announced the new decree ending the government’s powers to censor cinema and does away with “the system of controls and interventions that still allowed the Italian state to intervene on the freedom of artists.” Under the new decree, film distrib
  14. France’s major film guilds – BLIC, BLOC and ARP – have drafted proposals to amend France’s notoriously strict film windows. The guilds on Tuesday submitted proposals to the French government which has to enact new regulations by July 1st as part of the European continent’s ambitious Audiovisual Media Services Directive. The proposals submitted by the film organisations would give a six-month window to pay-TV groups as well as streaming services that invest at least 75% of their annual revenue in France in films that will premiere in French theaters. Other subscription-based stre
  15. History Channel’s long-running pseudo-documentary series “Ancient Aliens” is becoming a feature film over at Legendary and with the help of the “Cobra Kai” team. Counterbalance Entertainment, creators and showrunners of the YouTube turned Netflix smash hit based on the “Karate Kid” franchise, have set Josh Heald to direct while he, Jon Hurwitz, Jon Jashni and Hayden Schlossberg will produce. Luke Ryan will write the script and executive produce the “two-handed, globe-spanning adventure featuring ancient sites and artifacts, confronting the theories and questions raised by the popular
