Rachel Nichols will star alongside Peyton List, Bob Gunton, Austin Stowell, Briana Middleton, David Walton, and Reese Alexander in Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead, Nightmare Cinema, Pooka Lives!) latest horror movie, The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy. Based on a script by Joe Russo and Chris LaMont, the film follows “billionaire Charles Abernathy (Gunton) who, on the eve of his 75th birthday, invites his four estranged children back home out of fear that tonight someone—or something—is coming to kill him. To ensure his family will help protect him from whatever’s coming, Abernathy puts each of their inheritances on the line—they’ll get nothing if he’s found dead by dawn.” [Deadline]
Emily Blunt denied to Insider she’s been cast as Susan “The Invisible Woman” Storm-Richards in the MCU’s upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
That is fan-casting. No one has received a phone call. That’s just people saying, ‘Wouldn’t that be great?’ I love Iron Man, and when I got offered Black Widow, I was obsessed with Iron Man. I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. It would’ve been amazing. But I don’t know if superhero movies are for me. They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t. It’s been exhausted. We are inundated—it’s not only all the movies, it’s the endless TV shows as well. It’s not to say that I’d never want to play one, it would just have to be something so cool and like a really cool character, and then I’d be interested.
According to Margot Robbie, there’s currently “no sequel in the works” to Birds of Prey.
I don’t know if that is on the horizon anytime soon. I don’t think it’s a no. But no, there’s no sequel in the works that I’m aware of at this stage.
The Suicide Squad has been rated “R” by the MPAA for “strong violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use, and brief graphic nudity.” We can only hope all of the above is related to King Shark. [Bloody-Disgusting]
