Lucasfilm and Disney announced a new series of films set in the Star Wars Universe is in development with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the creative team behind HBO’s Game of Thrones. In the statement released by Lucasfilm, the new films will be separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the recently-announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
According to Variety, three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play The Joker in a standalone DC movie for Warner Bros, set around the origins of the Clown Prince of Crime; and co-written and directed by Todd Phillips, the filmmaker behind War Dogs and The Hangover trilogy.
BOX OFFICE REPORT
AGREE / DISAGREE
According to TheWrap, Michael Bay is being eyed to helm a Lobo movie for Warner Bros, based on the DC Comics character, and said to be Warner’s answer to Marvel’s Deadpool. The Transformers filmmaker reportedly met with DC Films execs to discuss the project and offered notes to screenwriter Jason Fuchs (Pan, Wonder Woman) who will incorporate them into a rewrite.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool 2 helmer David Leitch is in early talks with Universal to join the Fast-family as director of the untitled Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
A new trailer and teaser dropped while Collider was on the move, the first being a new look at Deadpool 2, this time featuring more on Wade Wilson’s time-traveling buddy Cable (played by Josh Brolin). The following day, another Marvel property (outside the MCU) was teased, this time with Venom, starring Tom Hardy.
