Deadline reports Taylour Paige (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Zola) has joined the cast of Legendary’s upcoming Toxic Avenger remake in an undisclosed role. The film already includes Peter Dinklage and Jacob Tremblay.
During a recent interview with Fast Company, Nintendo’s Shuntaro Furukawa said the company plans to develop more films based on its library of games following the release of Illumination’s upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie.
Animation, in general, is something that we are looking into, and not just this [Super Mario] franchise. Although the ways we are expanding our IP are increasing, we are very, very careful about where and how our IP is licensed. We are not deploying our characters and worlds merely to increase public exposure.
Meanwhile, Leprechaun creator Mark Jones sat down with Bloody-Disgusting to discuss—at length—his plans for a vampiric leprechaun movie. Click through for more.
Well, it’s an original creation. Anybody can do a movie with a leprechaun. And it’s not going to be a movie with Warwick Davis playing the same character from the Leprechaun movies. I’ve always looked at Vamprechaun as a standalone. If Warwick wants to do it, great. I’d love to have Warwick. But he’s certainly not locked in and attached. And it would work without him. But if Lionsgate wants to make a new deal for Vamprechaun, then I’d certainly be happy to talk with them.
