A new Hawkeye clip teases familial strife for Kate Bishop. The CW teases what’s coming on The Flash, Riverdale, Legacies, and more. Get a glimpse of the penultimate episode of Doctor Who: Flux. Plus, Noomi Rapace heads to historical horror in You Won’t Be Alone. To me, my spoilers!
THR reports Delroy Lindo is in “final negotiations” to join the cast of Marvel’s Blade reboot starring Mahershala Ali. Details on his character are not available at this time.
Deadline also has word Noomi Rapace, Anamaria Marinca, Alice Englert, Carloto Cotta, Félix Maritaud, and Sara Klimoska will star in You Won’t Be Alone, a supernatural horror thriller at Focus Features from director Goran Stolevski. The story is said to be set in “an isolated mountain village in 19th century Macedonia” and follow “a young girl who is kidnapped and then transformed into a witch by an ancient spirit. Curious about life as a human, the young witch accidentally kills a peasant in the nearby village and then takes her victim’s shape to live life in her skin. Her curiosity ignited, she continues to wield this horrific power in order to understand what it means to be human.”
In conversation with /Film, Eternals co-writer Kaz Firpo revealed he and brother Ryan Firpo plan to make their directorial debut with The Motor City Girls, a movie described as “The Virgin Suicides meets The Matrix.”
That’s something we’re really passionate about. We just started talking about it. It’s called The Motor City Girls. And for us, it’s a really personal story. It’s ultimately about these five teenage half-sisters in a rundown house on the outskirts of Detroit. And they have these strange and dangerous powers and are sort on this mission, this lifelong mission, to find and dismantle the cult that they were born in. And that’s sort of where their powers came from. It’s like a supernatural detective story. These girls are kind of trying to figure out their origin story, where they came from, and sort of in that way, grapple with the trauma that was handed down to them. It’s really a grounded film. We always kind of describe it a little bit as The Matrix meets The Virgin Suicides. It’s a lot of stuff going on, but it’s a very unique story. And yeah, we really began our journey as filmmakers coming to Hollywood. And we had the great pleasure of writing a lot of really powerful stories that we’re really passionate about. And this is sort of our return to that process of telling stories start to finish, and being filmmakers like we always set out to be, so appreciate you giving us a chance to talk about it.
