    Joss Whedon Reflects on His Rejected WONDER WOMAN Movie

    [​IMG]

    Back before The Avengers solidified Joss Whedon’s name in the superhero world, the burgeoning writer wanted to tackle another iconic heroine. In the early 2000s, Whedon found himself hard at work on a Wonder Woman film which Warner Bros. ultimately turned down.

    Still, Whedon has yet to forget the blow he took after his Wonder Woman script was rejected. And, in a new interview with Empire, the visionary filmmaker is reflecting on his scrapped project.

    “I worked really hard on that movie and it meant a lot [to me],” Whedon said after being interview for a Wonder Woman feature. “but I don’t know if what I was trying to do would fit in with what [the studio’s] vision is. I had to take on the film that, well, nobody liked… We just saw different movies, and at the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that’s never gonna work.”

    According to Empire, Whedon’s story was a very different one from what Patty Jenkin’s team has brought to life. In his iteration, Diana left her home of Themyscira with Steve Trevor shortly after the two became friends. They would leave to give aid to refugees, but Diana would run into plenty of trouble in Trevor’s hometown of Gateway City.

    Comments: Whedon's Wonder Woman movie sound turrible. He dodged a bullet and should thank WB for rejecting his WW movie.

    Guillermo del Toro Confirms HELLBOY 3 is 100% Not Happening

    [​IMG]

    Despite a grassroots campaign that saw director Guillermo del Toro and star Ron Perlman both come out publicly with the desire for a Hellboy 3 just weeks ago, which got significant response from fans on social media, the director broke the news Tuesday morning that it was definitely not happening.

    "Hellboy 3 sorry to report: Spoke with all parties. Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about it," del Toro posted to twitter.

    The tweet has a sense of true finality and defeat to it - it's clear del Toro was willing to make this movie as a passion project (meaning he likely would've made little to no money on it), but something major is standing in the way. With the finality, it sounds like either the studio or the rights holder, creator Mike Mignola, have nixed it completely - though that's merely informed speculation.

    Jeepers Creepers is one of my favorite horror movies out there. The first one was so great, but the second was dogshit. They showed wayyyy to much of the creeper in the second one not to mention it was a pretty boring movie. What made the first so good was the amount of mystery around him. They hardly showed him and when they did he was in the dark, or cloaked.

    They did what happened in the alien franchise, they tried to expose the mystery surrounding the mosters and it took a lot of the excitement, suspense, and mystery out of it for me.

    I really hope the 3rd one is more like the first, but I definitely have my doubts

    not surprised about hellboy 3. can't wait to see him come out on twitter before the year ends and ask if fans want to see it get made. At this point stop teasing people, don't post shit until it's 100% know it's going to be made. Stop asking if we want it, the damn answer is YES.

    I loved the first Jeepers Creepers.

    Hopefully the fact it's been fifteen years in between 2 and 3 will restore some of the magic, 2 didn't have anything that made the first great.

    Simon Kinberg in Talks to Write and Direct X-MEN: SUPERNOVA

    [​IMG]

    The next X-Men movie – supposedly titled X-Men: Supernova - might start filming this June and would focus on the Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix storyline, which is a comics arc that fans have been dying to see since Bryan Singer teased it at the end of X2. It basically involves Jean Grey succumbing to her powers and transforming into Dark Phoenix, a malevolent force that brings about Grey’s downfall.

    Sophie Turner, who was introduced as the young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, was on a red carpet when she revealed she was “about to start shooting the next X-Men movie,” but with both New Mutants and this Supernova film rumored to be in development, it was unclear what film she was talking about.

    After talking to multiple sources, Collider reports that writer/producer Simon Kinberg is looking to make his directorial debut with the next X-Men movie and he’s already written the screenplay. From what the site hear,s it does focus on the Dark Phoenix storyline and it’s now up to the studio if they’ll use his script and if he’ll get to direct it.

    If for some reason you’re not familiar with Simon Kinberg and his relationship to the X-Men franchise, he’s essentially the Kevin Feige of the X-Men universe at 20th Century Fox. If you look over his IMDb resume, you’ll see he’s either written, produced, or been heavily involved with X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, Logan, Legion, and New Mutants.

    Kyle Chandler to Star in GODZILLA: KING OF MONSTERS

    [​IMG]

    Bloodline star Kyle Chandler has joined the Legendary and Warner Bros.' Godzilla sequel.

    Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown also is attached to Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which is part of the Legendary and Warner Bros. cinematic universe. It is slated for release on March 22, 2019.

    Michael Dougherty is directing from a script by Dougherty and Zach Shields.

    Plot details are being kept locked on a South Pacific island but Chandler will play a scientist and father of Brown's character. The role makes him ostensibly the hero of the movie.

    Chandler, who won an Emmy award and received multiple nominations for his role as Coach Eric Taylor on Friday Night Lights, currently stars in Netflix’s Bloodline. He was most recently seen in Manchester By the Sea with Casey Affleck.

    Chandler was fielding multiple offers for feature gigs but opted for the Godzilla sequel, nabbing a seven figure deal in the process, according to sources.

    Dan Mazeau to Write VAN HELSING for Universal's Classic Monsters Universe

    [​IMG]

    Universal has hired Wrath of the Titans scribe Dan Mazeau to write the Van Helsing reboot that is part of the studio’s classic monsters universe, the Tracking Board has exclusively learned.

    As the architects of the universe, Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan will produce the film, though plot details remain under wraps somewhere in Transylvania.

    Mazeau was part of Universal’s writers room for the monsters universe, which also included Noah Hawley (Legion), Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black). His hiring isn’t exactly recent, as Van Helsing has been Mazeau’s baby since as far back as September, but his involvement had never been reported until now.

    Oscar nominee Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange) previously worked on Van Helsing. Spaihts also co-wrote The Mummy, the Tom Cruise movie that kicks off the new monsters universe this summer.

    The character of Van Helsing first appeared in Bram Stoker’s Dracula as a vampire hunter, though he also chased Frankenstein and the Wolf Man in the 2004 movie starring Hugh Jackman. The Invisible Man, the Bride of Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde are also rumored to play parts in Universal’s monsters universe.

    Guzikowski is currently running point on The Wolf Man, while David Koepp has been tasked with writing a present-day Bride of Frankenstein, though Kurtzman, Hawley and Jenny Lumet worked on earlier drafts. Angelina Jolie has been courted to direct the latter film, which like The Mummy, will be set in present-day.

    Besides Wrath of the Titans, Mazeau has written Lunar Park for producers Tom Cruise, Doug Liman and Simon Kinberg, and rewrote the spy movie Section 6 for Universal. He also adapted the sci-fi novel Yukikaze for Warner Bros. and wrote a draft of the action-thriller World’s Most Wanted for Fast & Furious producer Neal Moritz.

    The first one is still very scary/creepy.

    the whole atmosphere. Darryl and his sister are just driving on back roads, when Darryl finds Creeper's layer, when Creeper invades the old cat ladies home.

    Hell, even when the cops show up to help you feel there is still no hope for them...absolutely terrifying.

    I shouldn't have included Underworld. I actually liked the first dozen and its not nearly as over the top as the others. I was wrong.

    I loved the 1st Van Helsing. It threw me off a bit at first with all the different monsters together in one movie... but I quickly overcame that & really enjoyed it. I've seen it about 10 timez or so & I love it.

    Looking forward to the sequel... but would be disapointed if Hugh jackman wazn't in it.
