Sure, it’s silly, but the fact that James Gunn’s twitter continues to make headlines (and he responds to those headlines!) will never not be funny to me, especially when so many of those headlines are literally the length of the tweet. Anyway, Guardians 3 is going to be about 2.5 hours long and James Gunn is working hard on DC, pay no mind to the Marvel behind the curtain. Spoilers, tout suite!
During a recent interview with Deadline, John Wick director Chad Stahleski revealed he’s having a hard time writing the Highlander reboot with Henry Cavill due to the complex mythology introduced over five films, two spinoffs, and seven seasons of the TV series.
I’ve worked on Highlander for years now, for Henry Cavill. Being retroactive is hard. What’s different between Wick and that? With Wick, you weren’t serving seven seasons of TV plus two spinoffs plus five films. If I were to do a remake of Highlander right now, you’d expect a lot of mythology in those first two hours; you couldn’t explore stuff without it. Now, Highlander as a TV show now would be amazing. You’d have time to build it out, see all those flashbacks and the potential of it. It’s trickier when you’re trying to do something with that big of a mythology. But I agree, that would be one to take a really big stab at. Here, we just had the opportunity to really learn as we went on with Wick.
Attack the Block 2
Meanwhile, John Boyega told Empire Magazine (via /Film) that his character, Moses, will be “pretty darn bloody frickin’ dope” when we see him again in Attack the Block 2.
It’s a character that I really understand. In creating him when I was younger, I really understand where he’s at now. It’s the character that’s stuck with me the longest. Every year I’d think, ‘I wonder what Moses is doing now.’ So I jump back in, and I think this version of Moses, if people can think about everything he’s been through, is pretty darn bloody frickin’ dope.
