According to Deadline, NBC is developing yet another reboot of the ’60s “horror”-comedy series The Munsters from Late Night host Seth Meyers and Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman. Hailing from Universal TV, the project will be written and executive produced by Kargman, and produced by Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions’ Meyers and Mike Shoemaker (The Awesomes).

The series will reportedly reimagine the fan-favorite show as a half-hour single-camera comedy that will follow the titular horror-inspired family as the navigate life and try to fit in among modern Brooklynites in the New York City bureau’s most hipster neighbourhood. This is of course in contrast to the original series, which took place in the fictional California suburb Mockingbird Heights.

In 2012, NBC and Universal attempted to reboot the property under the helm of Star Trek: Discovery’s Bryan Fuller. The the project never became a full-fledged series, the big-budget pilot episode — directed by Bryan Singer and starring Jerry O’Connell as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi as Lily, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn — aired as a Halloween special.

Justice League Reshoots Lightened Film’s Tone, Actor Confirms

1 min ago by  in Movie News CBR
Soooo basically what they said they wouldn’t do initially as they offered a ‘better product’. I very much want to see this film particularly to see if the Whedon touches are obvious.  I also want this to be good that DC will move toward being a better competitor in the superhero genre market. REC

Much has been made about the choice of tone in the DC Extended Universe, with Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad skewing darker, while Wonder Woman moved in the opposite direction. With Justice League undergoing extensive reshoots under director Joss Whedon, it’s been widely suggested the film’s tone is being lightened to appeal to a broader audience.

During an interview with IGN, actor Joe Morton, who plays Cyborg’s father Dr. Silas Stone, confirmed that’s indeed the case.

“Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone,” Morton said. “I know that with Ray [Fisher], the young man who plays Victor, there were some adjustments that they made in terms of the tone of that character.”

He added, “I think what I heard was that there was a need from the studio to lighten up the film in a way, that the film felt too dark. I don’t know what that meant in terms of how it actually got translated in terms of the reshoots but that’s what I heard. That’s what I thought some of the reshoots were about.”

Arriving Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

Russos Celebrate First Day of Avengers 4 Filming with New Photo

3 hours ago by in Movie News (CBR_

Co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo have indicated the start of filming on Avengers 4 with a cryptic new photo from the film’s set.

The Russo Brothers posted a mysterious picture on their official Facebook page this afternoon with only the words “Beginning the end” attached to the image. The photo shows a purple glove holding up four fingers to the camera.

It’s a simple enough picture, but what does it mean? Are we just four days from a new Avengers: Infinity War teaser? Four days from learning what the title of the film will be? Will Hawkeye have a larger role in this film? Does this signal the end of Phase 3 and the beginning of Phase 4?

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FTheRussoBrothersOfficial%2Fphotos%2Fa.740279982774603.1073741828.739779486157986%2F1046940722108526%2F%3Ftype%3D3&width=500

More importantly, what is coming to an end? This can’t be the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, considering a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 are set to be released after the film. Perhaps this will be the final Avengers movie and a new team narrative will take over.

Filming for the still-untitled Avengers title opened at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County, Georgia. It is scheduled to last until December 2017 and will be shot entirely in IMAX format.

When the Russo Brothers came onto the project to direct, Avengers: Infinity Wars was still expected to be a two-part film. Despite the separation of the two movies, filming would remain on a back-to-back schedule. The first movie began production in January and wrapped up in July. Additional filming was conducted in Scotland, England, the Downtown Atlanta area, and New York City.

So far, there has been no new information concerning the plot of Avengers 4 or how it will deal with the aftermath of Infinity War. The film will reportedly see every major plot thread and character arch come to a conclusion in the MCU. Whether this movie will signal an ending or a new beginning is yet to be seen.

The untitled Avengers movie is scheduled for a May 3, 2019 release. Avengers: Infinity War is currently in post-production and is set to see theaters on May 4, 2018, almost exactly one year earlier.

Avengers 4 is expected to return another big cast with Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Samuel L. Jackson, Evangeline Lilly, Karen Gillan, Anthony Mackie, Tom Holland, Zoe Zaldana, and Dave Bautista reprising their respective roles.

Thor: Ragnarok: Jaimie Alexander Confirmed to Return As Sif?

6 hours agoby in Movie NewsCBR
Could Jamie Alexander be a hidden surprise in Thor: Ragnarok? The promo for this Sunday’s Talking with Chris Hardwick would certainly lead one to believe so, as it lists Alexander as one of the cast members of the upcoming intergalactic Marvel Studios sequel.

However, despite what the commercial states, the official description of the show’s episode doesn’t describe Alexander’s involvement with the film. Instead, it states she’ll be talking about “the physical demands” of the NBC show she’s currently starring on, Blindspot, as well as what life was like for her before the Thor films.

It’ll be interesting to watch this episode to see what, if any information Alexander gives away if she is indeed appearing in Thor: Ragnarok. With Natalie Portman’s Jane apparently out of the picture for good, could this be the grand opportunity for Sif to make her move on Thor, kindling some of the history the pair have in the Marvel Comics source material? Or will she and Valkyrie [Tessa Thompson] form a two-woman tag team in order to take down the MCU’s first female villain, Hela [Cate Blanchett]?

Talking with Chris Hardwick airs Sundays at 11/10c on AMC.

Opening Nov. 3, director Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.

Karl Urban In Talks To Join Judge Dredd Live-Action TV Show

9 hours ago by in Movie News (CBR)

Dredd star Karl Urban has revealed he’s in talks to reprise the titular role for the in-development live-action TV series Judge Dredd: Mega-City One.

“I am in discussions with them about that.” Urban said at a panel during Star Trek Las Vegas last weekend (via TrekMovie). “I told them that if they write the material and give Dredd something to do and give him a function, I will be there. I would love to.”

Dredd, based on Judge Dredd’s adventures in the 2000 AD comics, was a box office bomb. Despite its commercial failure, the film has become a cult-favorite, spurring fans to relentlessly call upon Urban to take on the role once more. Despite fans unsuccessfully campaigning for Netflix and Amazon Prime to pick up a Dredd series, independent studio IM Global are developing the live-action show called Judge Dredd: Mega-City One. 

Producer Jason Kingsley previously teased the tone and scope of the series, saying, “Dark fantasy elements are one area that would be great to explore. The show will combine the macabre with the insane and the lighthearted. It’s a big place, after all, with 400 million stories to tell.”
The next comic book movie you can watch Karl Urban in is Thor: Ragnarok, with him taking on the role of Skurge. The Thor threequel debuts in theaters November 3.

Milla Jovovich to play the Blood Queen in Hellboy reboot!

Deadline brings word that the title villain of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen has been cast with none other than fan-favorite Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Resident Evil franchise)! Although it is unknown if the “Blood Queen” of the title is The Queen of Blood (also known as Nimue) from the comics, that Arthurian-era character was resurrected to bring Hellboy to his adversary Gruagach. Hellboy awakens an army of dead knights to battle her, and while Nimue is defeated, she ultimately winds up dragging the hero with her to hell.

David Harbour of Stranger Things is set to star as the titular hero in the film, which is slated to begin filming in September. Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods) will play Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm (aka Professor Broom). Neil Marshall (The DescentGame of Thrones) will direct from a script from Andrew Cosby (Eureka), Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.

First appearing in Dark Horse comics beginning in 1993, Hellboy is a demon summoned from Hell by the Nazi occultists near the end of World War II. Raised by Professor Trevor Bruttenholm of Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, Hellboy went on to be billed as “The World’s greatest occult detective.” The adventures of the character have been chronicled in countless comics, including his time with the Bureau, his early years as a young boy, and even the time he spent in hell after dying on Earth. The main Hellboy title has also served as a launching pad for other characters and stories, including Abe Sapien, Lobster Johnson, BPRD, Sledgehammer 44 and others!

The first Hellboy movie hit theaters in April of 2004 with Ron Perlman in the title role. It was produced on a $66 million budget and earned $99 million worldwide. Del Toro’s sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, debuted in July of 2008 on a budget of $85 million and earned $160.3 million.

untitled.pngThe Gifted Releases New Trailer, Casts SHIELD Star as Dreamer

11 hours ago by  in TV NEWS (CBR)
 

In the latest trailer for Fox’s X-Men drama The Gifted, family is the strongest power. The new promo puts the focus on the Strucker family and their need to protect one another as they go on the run in search of safety.

 

 

In addition to the new trailer, which you can view above, the series has added actress Elena Satine as Dreamer, a mutant who has the ability to remove or implant memories in others. This will mark Satine’s second Marvel role, as she previously played the Asgardian Lorelei in two episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1. Per ScreenRant, the casting announcement was made by showrunner Matt Nix during the Television Critics Association press tour.

Nix went on to express his excitement over bringing Dreamer — who goes by Beautiful Dreamer in the comics — into the series, citing her powers as “sexy.” “One of the things about her character is that’s a really sexy power that isn’t a gigantic power,” he said. “We aren’t blowing up a building with her… it doesn’t involve a six-week CG build.”

While it’s currently unknown just how many episodes Satine’s Dreamer will appear in, she will play a part in a love triangle between Dreamer, Thunderbird (Blair Redford) and an as-yet-unknown third party.

Developed by Nix, The Gifted follows two ordinary parents who discover their children possess extraordinary powers. Forced to go on the run from the government, they join an underground network of mutants and must fight for their survival.

Premiering Monday, Oct. 2, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the joint production of Fox and Marvel Television stars Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker, Sean Teale as Marcos Diaz/Eclipse, Coby Bell as Jace Turner, Emma Dumont cast as Lorna Dane/Polaris, Jamie Chung as Blink/Clarice Fong and Blair Redford as John Proudstar/Thunderbird, Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker and Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker.

Hellboy Reboot Eyes Milla Jovovich for Villain

Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich…these folks aren’t playing:) REC

4 mins ago by in Movie NewsCBR

The upcoming Hellboy reboot, tentatively titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, just got some major star power. According to DeadlineResident Evil star Milla Jovovich is “in final talks” to play the Blood Queen, the film’s eponymous villain. Jovovich will join Stanger Things‘ David Harbour, who is slated to play Hellboy himself, as well as Ian McShane, who will appear as Hellboy’s adoptive father Professor Broom. Not much is known about her role at this time.

Jovovich is an industry veteran, best known for her roles in the cult classic film The Fifth Elementand the Resident Evil franchise. The Ukrainian-born actress has also appeared in UltravioletThe Three MusketeersZoolander and more.

In May, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola announced an R-rated reboot of the franchise. Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson is on board to produce, and Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Mignola have penned the script for the film. Recently, Mignola revealed that the reboot, one which will be R-rated and take the franchise in a darker direction, was actually first conceived to follow the two movies that director Guillermo del Toro did. However, when del Toro didn’t want to be part of the new story, Ron Perlman took himself off the table which paved the way for Neil Marshall to take the director’s chair and for Harbour to step in as the lead.

Directed by The Descent‘s Neil Marshall, the upcoming Hellboy reboot is written by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola and stars David Harbour in the title role. The film does not yet have a release date.

Cable Is Here! Reynolds Debuts First Pics of Deadpool 2 Co-Star

17 hours ago by in Movie News (CBR)

Last week, Ryan Reynolds shared the first look at Zazie Beetz as Domino, Marvel’s popular, luck-powered mutant. Now Reynolds has debuted the first photo of his other Deadpool 2 co-star James Brolin, in his Cable make-up.

As expected Brolin’s Cable is true to his comic book counterpart, sporting a head of silver hair, a star-shaped scar on the right side of his face, and glowing left eye. And while the initial image crops Cable just below the neck, a subsequent Instagram post by creator Rob Liefeld shows Cable sporting not only his signature robotic arm, but some pretty massive pieces of ammunition on his shoulder straps as well — along with an insanely large gun. In short, those hoping Brolin’s Cable would be wilding some of Liefeld’s signature over-the-top weaponry will not be disappointed.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BXf3MQchYX-/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=7&wp=620#%7B%22ci%22%3A0%2C%22os%22%3A5729.080000000001%7D

Perhaps most importantly, we see that among the items strapped to Cables myriad belts and pouches is a teddy bear. It looks a little worse for wear, and might seem an odd detail to those who aren’t familiar with the character’s more recent comic book history. But for Marvel comics readers, the bear is another clue that what many have long suspected is likely true — Deadpool 2 will at least touch on, of not focus directly on Cable’s role as the surrogate father of Hope Summers, a young mutant upon whose shoulders rests the future of all mutant kind. Indeed, this is the second major tease of the character; her name was prominently displayed as part of the graffiti decorating a phone booth in the first Deadpool 2 teaser.

Considering last week’s Domino photos were released days before behind-the-scenes images from the set of the film featuring the character began arriving online, it’s probably a safe bet we’ll see similar pics of Cable in action alongside (or against) Deadpool sooner than later. As for whether they’ll also feature the as yet unannounced Hope as well, or if Cable will be teamed with Domino of poised against her remains to be seen, of course.

Directed by David Leitch (John Wick), Deadpool 2 is filming in Vancouver, British Columbia. Premiering June 1, 2018, the sequel will see the return of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy.
