In conversation with Variety, David Gordon Green revealed his new Exorcist movie begins filming “in a couple of weeks.”
Netflix has released a new poster for Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio.
Pierce Brosnan teed up a clip of Doctor Fate delivering some bad news to Hawkman during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show.
According to Deadline, Andy Serkis and Jonathan Cavendish plan to adapt the classic horror film The Wicker Man into a TV series. Though no broadcasters are currently attached, Howard Overman (Misfits, War of the Worlds) is attached to write the script.
In conversation with The Wrap, Mike Flanagan stated his adaptation of The Fall of the House of Usher will be “unlike anything he’s ever done.”
It’s crazy. It is unlike anything I’ve ever done, but in the other direction. My favorite way to describe it to people is like Hill House is kind of a string quartet, and Bly Manor is this delicate, kind of beautiful piece of classical piano music, and The Fall of the House of Usher is heavy metal. It’s rock and roll. It’s the closest I will get to Giallo. It’s wild. It is colorful and dark and blood-soaked and wicked and funny, and aggressive and scary and hilarious. I’ve never gotten to work on anything like it. We left everything on the field with it, and it’s just bombastic fun. I’m really excited for that to find its way out because I especially think both The Midnight Club and Usher just go off in their own drastically different directions, and next to each other they’re fascinating to me.
