Chad Stahleski’s Black Samurai adaptation finds a new writer. Anson Mount is ready for Strange New Worlds season 2. Plus, what’s coming on Stargirl and American Horror Story: NYC. To me, my spoilers!
Mariela Garriga has joined the cast of the next Mission: Impossible movie according to director Christopher McQuarrie on Twitter.
Deadline reports Jade Pettyjohn is attached to star in The Not Polly, the latest horror film from Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down: Uncaged, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.) Based on a story by Japanese producer and music industry executive, Yasushi Akimoto, the film concerns the titular Polly, “the most popular and most beautiful girl in school who wakes up after a party to find that she is trapped in a morgue, apparently dead, with no reflection, no pulse and no heartbeat. To make matters worse, she has been possessed.”
THR additionally reports Leigh Dana Jackson has been hired to write a new film adaptation of Marc Olden’s Black Samurai series for director Chad Stahleski at Netflix.

Anson Mount continued to hype the second season of Strange New Worlds in a recent interview with Collider.
It’s like Christopher Guest in Spinal Tap, discovering that these knobs all go up to 11. Akiva [Goldsman] and Henry [Alonso Myers], our two showrunners, are so courageous. I really am not a conservative storyteller, at all. I am all for saying, ‘F*** tradition, let’s do it our own way.’ But I’ve even found myself going, ‘Really? Can we really do this?’ Their mantra is that Star Trek can be a lot of things. [...] Star Trek can be a lot of things because Star Trek, as the best TV does, operates as a metaphorical platform, and when you jump into that wholly, you can really find a lot more elbow room than you think, including playing with not just story, but genre.
