 Mark Strong

Things are progressing rather quickly for Shazam! Just days after the film confirmed Zachary Levi to play the title hero, there are reports that Mark Strong is in talks to play the film’s villain. Of course, as some of you know, it’s not going to be Black Adam, as Dwayne Johnson will be playing him in a standalone film.

According to reports, Strong is in talks to play Doctor Sivana, who has had run-ins with Shazam before. More on the story below.

Black Adam DC Comics

Black Adam is literally not going to be like any of the DC films we have seen before. As a character, he serves as the main antagonist for Shazam aka Billy Batson, the young boy who assumes the identity of the superpowered being when shouting “Shazam,” who will have his own film. So it was interesting to hear that Black Adam would be getting his own film. Of course, when it was announced that Dwayne Johnson would be playing the title character, it made plenty of sense.

While the project has been in development for quite some time, it just took a major step forward. New reports confirm that Due Date writer and Undateable creator Adam Sztykiel will pen the script. More on the story below.

It Pennywise 2017

Having only seen bits and pieces of the original IT TV miniseries, I didn’t know what to expect from the new Stephen King’s IT from director Andy Muschietti. But after catching a screening of new film, I can understand why everyone is so afraid of clowns. That being said, there are a few flaws, but overall, I had a terrifyingly good time. The reaction has been so good that Warner Bros. feels confident enough to move forward with a sequel.

Pennywise It Trailer

Clowns are pretty much at the top of the list of things to be afraid of. Though they can bring laughter with slapstick comedy, but one can’t get over the fact that there is something truly terrifying about them as well. Which is why coulrophobia — the fear of clowns — has been popularized in pop culture. And we owe a great deal of thanks to Pennywise from Stephen King‘s novel It for manifesting those fears of clowns.

A brand new adaptation of It, from Mama director Andy Muschietti, is just a few more months away, and now WB has released a new trailer that brings back all those fears we thought we suppressed. Check it out here below.

The Conjuring Header Image

Now that the franchise as a whole is going by the name The Conjuring Universe, we knew it was only a matter of time before The Conjuring 3 would be on the way. The first two movies making over $638 million worldwide combined probably helps as well.

It’s being reported that New Line Cinema has hired The Conjuring 2 writer David Leslie Johnson to work on the script for the trilogy-maker. James Wan, who directed the first two movies and was also a writer and producer on the second installment, is expected to be involved in the project, though the report says he’ll likely produce this time with a new director brought in.

The Conjuring 2 starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson

There were few recent films that were genuinely able to capture the essence of fright and scares like James Wan‘s The Conjuring. The director proved that jump scares weren’t necessary, and was able to build tension with precision. Now he’s back to follow that up with The Conjuring 2, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprising their roles as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. However, the sequel will take them across the pond all the way to England where they will have to face what is described as England’s Amityville.

Check out the new trailer here below.

Pennywise in Stephen King's It

It was a sad, sad day when we found out that True Detective season one director Cary Fukunaga had decided to walk away from the two-part movie adaptation of Stephen King’s horror tome It after a dispute with New Line Cinema on the direction of the project. He had been working on development for about three years.

Now Fukunaga has finally shared his thoughts on the departure. But don’t continue below expecting to see an angry, frustrated rant aimed toward New Line. No matter how infuriated the director was by the way things played out, he took the high road when talking about what happened. At least this time.

Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Kruger

Five years ago, Platinum Dunes attempted to revive A Nightmare On Elm Street with a brand spanking new reboot for a younger generation. However, the film, starring Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Kruger, wasn’t very well-received by critics or audiences, and bombed at the box office. But when it comes to horror icons of those cheesy and campy slasher films of 80s, they do not stay dead for long.

New Line Cinema will once again be stirring up a few nightmares in an all new reboot of A Nightmare On Elm Street, which will reportedly ignore the damage that was done in the 2010 film.

More on the story below.

Guillermo del Toro Departs ‘Justice League Dark’; ‘Sandman’ Now At New Line Cinema

Guillermo del Toro

The Hollywood Reporter ran an article yesterday about how Warner Bros. is currently in the process of moving some of their less kid-friendly DC Comics movie projects, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s Sandman adaptation, over to their New Line Cinema division.

Buried at the very end was the most distressing news the article contained: Guillermo del Toro is no longer directing Justice League Dark, by far the one future DC film venture I wanted to see made more than anything.
