David Cronenberg is looking to make three new projects for film and TV. Emma Paetz teases a wild time for Martha Wayne in Pennyworth season two. Plus, get a look at Snowpiercer’s return, and Javicia Leslie’s debut in the new season of Batwoman. To me, my spoilers!
In a recent interview with Variety, David Cronenberg revealed he’s seeking to finance “three projects he’s written—two features and one series,” heavily implying this to be his reason he accepted the role of Kovich on Star Trek: Discovery.
I’m cheap and I’m available. I live in Toronto, and it’s being shot in Toronto. I think that’s my main qualification.
Deadline reports Kate Bosworth and Emile Hirsch are now filming The Immaculate Room, a thriller from Mukunda Michael Dewil said to concern “a seemingly perfect couple who take part in a psychological experiment that will reward them $5M if they can stay in a perfectly white room for 50 days. But the room is much more than it seems, and a hidden past and private demons will reveal shameful truths that they may not survive.”
Tessa Thompson confirmed Valkyrie is still the King of Asgard when we see her again in Thor: Love & Thunder.
I can tease that she’s definitely King of New Asgard when we find her. And as was the case in the last four, I would say that she’s a part of an adventure that involved Thor, in the sense that it’s called Thor: Love and Thunder. And I’d say there’s some cool stuff going on. We have some new characters; we have some folks potentially from other pockets of the MCU. And then we have some folks, maybe, that we’ve seen before.
A couple vacationing in the mysterious town of Bog Grove become trapped in a time loop in the trailer for 6:45.
According to Deadline, Gabrielle Ryan will recur in NBC’s new sci-fi drama, Debris, as Dee Dee, “Finola’s (Rian Steele) younger sister who is the apple of her father’s eye and struggling to get her life together in London.”
Crispin Glover, James Urbaniak, Jamie Clayton, Rya Kihlstedt, Grantham Coleman, and Damon Dayoub have joined the cast of Red Bird Lane, a psychological thriller at HBO Max following eight strangers arrive at an isolated house and find “something sinister and terrifying” waiting for them. Glover will play Jonah, “a bad man who arrives at the mysterious house in the center of the thriller for money” while Urbaniak joins as Tanner, “a charming and arrogant character who also arrives to the Red Bird Lane house for unspeakable reasons.” Clayton has been cast as “the sarcastic, hard-edged but charming Jessica” opposite Kihlstedt as Eloise, “the show’s blunt yet enigmatic house guest who arrives for a dinner party.” Coleman joins as “the intelligent, handsome but cruel Sigmund” while Dayoub rounds out the cast as Ian Goodman, “a handsome philosophy professor” said to appear in a reduced, guest-star capacity, so...don’t get too attached.

In conversation with TV Line, Emma Paetz teased that at some point in the second season of Pennyworth, Martha Wayne will get into a fight with a naked person.
Hmmm…. Well, Martha might be involved in some fights that involve nudity. And not necessarily from her!
