Harley Quinn's spinoff movie finds a director, Mad Max sequels are in jeopardy due to lawsuit and Jason Clarke is in talke for a Pet Semetary remake. On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Tuesday, April 17th, 2018) Mark Ellis, John Rocha, and Perri Nemiroff discuss the following:
- Harley Quinn / Birds of Prey Movie Finds Director
- ‘Fury Road’ Sequels in Doubt as Court Battle Between George Miller & WB Heats Up
- John Ridley To Write, Direct Blumhouse Superhero Film ‘The American Way’
- Carrie Coon Is Playing a Villain in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
- Jason Clarke in Talks to Star in 'Pet Sematary' Remake
- ‘Hotel Artemis’ Trailer Reveals Star-Studded Sci-Fi Showdown
- New ‘Deadpool 2’ Spots Further Reveal the Sequel’s Plot
Last November, George Miller and his production company Kennedy Miller Mitchell filed a suit against Warner Bros. alleging that the company reneged on paying him a $7 million bonus for bringing Fury Road in under a budget of $157 million. Warner Bros., meanwhile, claims the film did go over budget, and thus Miller is not entitled to a bonus after all. Now, per the Sydney Morning Herald, new court filings shed some light on what’s going on, and how this makes Fury Road sequels unlikely to happen.
According to Deadline, Oscar winner John Ridley is bringing his most notable comic book creation to the big screen. Ridley has signed on to write and direct an adaptation of his 2017 series The American Way: Those Above and Those Below for Blumhouse Pictures.
It has been confirmed that Carrie Coon, actress from The Leftovers and Fargo, will be appearing in Avengers Infinity War. According to Variety, directors Joe and Anthony Russo told the British magazine Radio Times that Coon will be lending her voice to the Black Order baddie Proxima Midnight.
According to THR, Jason Clarke is in negotiations to star in Pet Sematary, Paramount’s new adaptation of the Stephen King novel. Starry Eyes' directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch are helming the new take on the material in which a doctor (Clarke) moves his family out of the big city to the country.
The first trailer for Hotel Artemis has landed online, revealing Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce’s feature directorial debut. Written and directed by Pearce, the film takes place in a near-future Los Angeles and revolves around a secret members-only hospital that caters to criminals.
