Weekly Wrap-Up: March 26th

HERE ON THE WEEKLY WRAP-UP, YOU CAN FIND ALL THE NEWS AND RUMORS FROM THE PAST WEEK IN THE WORLD OF TELEVISION AND FILM.

First Look at Renee Zellweger as Judy Garland

  • This could wind up being an interesting flick.

Writer of The Incredible Hulk Maybe Working on Another Project for Marvel

  • Will this even be an MCU project? I don’t think this is reason for excitement.

Mark Ruffalo and Kumail Nanjiani to Star in True American

  • I’d rather have seen Tom Hardy and Kathryn Bigelow take on this project. Then again, I’d rather see Tom Hardy in almost everything.

Elisabeth Moss Joins McCarthy and Haddish in Comic Book Movie, The Kitchen

  • The cast is coming along rather nicely…

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Director to Helm Live-Action Lady and the Tramp Reboot

  • This is not one of the live-action Disney movies that I am looking forward to.

Westworld Season 2 Titled, “The Door”

  • Season 1 was titled, “The Maze”. In Season 2, we will undoubtedly be “opened up” to a much more massive scope than in Season 1.

Ben Affleck and Oscar Isaac to Headline Netflix Movie Triple Frontier

  • Triple Frontier will be directed by J.C. Chandor, who wrote and directed a few underappreciated gems: Margin Call, All is Lost, and A Most Violent Year.

Tarantino’s Proposed Star Trek Movie Not Inherent To Be Rated R

  • This should come to no surprise. Star Trek is bigger than Quentin Tarantino.

Rick and Morty Season 4 May Not Happen

  • Rick and Morty is one of the funniest, most clever shows I have seen in a long time. I hope it runs for 20 seasons.

Backdraft 2 in the Works

  • With only 1 actor from the original confirmed to return and Ron Howard nowhere to be found, I am not looking forward to this sequel by any stretch of the imagination.

Fargo Season 4 Will Be a Period Piece

  • No word on when the season will come to fruition. Creator Noah Hawley is constantly busy with movie projects, as well as running his other show, Legion.

Zack Snyder Confirms Anti-Life Equation in Justice League

  • The attention to detail that Zack Snyder brought to the DCEU will be sorely missed.

Man Dies After Getting Head Trapped in Theater Seat

  • If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all…

Can Short Form Video Make a Comeback?

  • It already has begun. Just look at the shows on Netflix that are only 15-20 minutes per episode, and contains maybe 8-10 episodes per season.

Fathom Events to Hold 1 Night Event: The Karate Kid & Cobra Kai Double Feature

  • This screening will be held 1 week before Cobra Kai premieres on YouTube Red.
  • The screenings will be on April 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm local time.

Dunkirk Actor Joins Tom Hardy in Al Capone Biopic, Fonzo

  • Linda Cardellini, Matt Dillon and Kyle MacLachlan round out the cast of this Josh Trank (Chronicle) written/directed film.

Alicia Vikander to Star in Netflix’s Noir Thriller, The Earthquake Bird

  • Set in Tokyo, with a focus on characters who are women. I am 100% on board for this, without knowing the prior work of the writer/director.

Cannes Banned Netflix Movies From Competing at Festival

  • I cannot say that I am not happy with their choice.

Animated Deadpool Show From Atlanta Creator Donald Glover Scrapped by FX

  • Glover and FX have both left the show over, “creative differences”. I wonder if we will ever get any inside information on this one. I was highly looking forward to seeing Glover put his touches on the Deadpool character.

Black Panther is Now the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie of All Time in the U.S.

  • Congratulations…but it will be de-throned in a few weeks, after the release of Avengers: Infinity War.
