Variety reports Djimon Hounsou has joined the cast as “one of the film’s multiple Bosleys,” alongside Patrick Stewart and director Elizabeth Banks, herself. At this point, it’s unclear if “Bosely” is a codename, acronym or descriptive placeholder for each character’s managerial duties.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, director David Gordon Green revealed why “the third Halloween II” is simply titled Halloween.
That was a weird discussion. You know, do we call it The Shape? Do we call it Halloween Returns? What do you call it? Technically, it’s the third Halloween II. It kind of got to the point where we were like, ‘Well, we don’t want to not invite anybody. We don’t want someone who is unfamiliar with the previous films to think, well, I need to catch up.’ So then we just thought, for simplicity, let’s just call it Halloween.

Jon Favreau’s Star Wars
Making Star Wars has set photos from Jon Favreau’s Star Wars television series beginning production this week. They appear to show a very Tatooine-esque aesthetic, right down to moisture vaporators and sand, but there’s always a possibility that it could be one of those convenient Star Wars planets that’s a new location that just so happens to look pretty much exactly like a planet we’ve seen before.
The incredible Jennifer Beals has joined the cast of Swamp Thing as the “tough as nails and pragmatic” Sheriff Lucilia Cable.

As the community she has dedicated her life to defending is beset by strange forces, Lucilia must double down in her efforts to safeguard everyone she holds dear.”

Mike Colter offered a few details on season three of Luke Cage during a recent panel at Baltimore Comic-Con.
I think the plan for season 3 is to explore Luke’s ability to govern and be fair. At the end, we talk about there being a new sheriff in town, a new king in Harlem. We’re going to see how he deals with this power, because we know absolute power can corrupt absolutely. And sometimes when you don’t have someone checking you, someone to put you in place, someone to tell you ‘you can’t do that,’ we sometimes get out of control. We see that everywhere.
Game of Thrones
In a recent interview with IGN, Sophie Turner stated she thinks the Game of Thrones finale will divide fans.
A lot of tears. I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying — I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines — to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us. Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans. I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon, I think. I think it will be really interesting to see people’s reactions, but for me reading the script it was just like heartbreaking to read at the very final page of the script it just says, ‘End of Game of Thrones’. That was really emotional.
