Godzilla vs Kong 2
meeting reports that Dan Stevens has joined Adam Wingard’s successor to the legendary monster mashup in an undisclosed role. Details about the film itself are also under wraps, except that, as Deadline reports, Godzilla and Kong are “preparing for their next battle against each other.”
Damn disgusting Kiernan Shipka, Olivia Holt, Julie Bowen and Randall Park are reportedly set to star total killer, a time-traveling comedy slasher set in the Blumhouse by director Nahnatchka Khan. The story follows “Jamie (Shipka) whose mother, Pam (Bowen), is terrorized by the resurgence of the Sweet Sixteen Killer – a masked maniac who butchered a group of teenage girls in the ’80s. With the help of her friend Amelia (Kelcey Mawema), she travels back to 1987 and teams up with the teenage version of her mother (Holt) to try to stop the killer.”
Friday the 13th
In conversation with CNNSean S. Cunningham explained the likelihood of a new one Friday the 13th Film in the next two years is currently “50-50”.
I think it will definitely come back. But I can’t tell you it will be back this year or next. Will Jason be back in theaters? Right now it’s 50-50… Both sides are really foxholes dug. They won’t throw grenades, but I don’t think anyone will call for peace talks.
Mortal Kombat 2
Speak with comic bookScreenwriter Jeremy Slater discussed the challenge of introducing new characters to an already crowded roster Mortal Kombat 2.
They’re really flexible because a lot of that is just who we want to see and a lot of that is who the fans have really been asking for because I’m sure you know Mortal Kombat has an incredibly passionate and incredibly vocal fanbase on social media. And there’s people that they really want to see in these movies and relationships that they really want to see, and part of the problem is that we have a lot of recurring characters from that first movie that you already have to balance. So if the last movie introduced 10 characters, we can’t necessarily go back and introduce another 10 characters, because then you’re dealing with 20 people in a movie and it becomes sort of a cameo parade. So you really have to go through and pick some kind of cherry, who are your favorite three or four heroes that we can add, who are your favorite three or four villains?
How do we introduce some of these great characters but use them in a way that feels and doesn’t feel satisfying… You don’t want Erron Black to just walk by in the background and everyone say, ‘Yeah, that was him.’ If you use this character or use Johnny Cage or Kitana or D’Vorah or any of these characters from the games you want to make sure you have a story to tell. And we need to find a way to do that in less than two hours, and we need to find a way that all of this makes sense to people who’ve only seen the first movie and aren’t familiar with the lore in the games and us to get as close to that lore as possible because that’s what the fans want to see.
So it’s quite a balancing act that I’m sure there will be people who will say, ‘My favorite character wasn’t there this time, just because they have 50 characters at this point. And we can’t have them all on screen.” But I think from the characters that you see, I think fans will be really happy with the interpretations. We try our best to make them as cool, memorable and fun as possible.
