by Britt Hayes April 11, 2015 @ 12:36 PM
Power Rangers feels like such a strange property to reboot for the big screen, but then again, the idea of reviving Transformers as a live-action film franchise also seemed pretty weird at the time (and still kind of does). Last we heard, Roberto Orci is producing the new Power Rangers movie, which has been seeking a director for some time. They may have just found one in Project Almanac director Dean Israelite.

Teen Wolf and Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien has rapidly become a talent to watch — the young actor was rumored for the part of the new Spider-Man in our post-Andrew Garfield world, and while that didn’t pan out, O’Brien has just landed a pretty sweet gig instead. The actor has been cast opposite Mark Wahlberg in Peter Berg’s upcoming Deepwater Horizon movie, which isn’t a bad way to transition from YA to more mature projects.

by Britt Hayes April 9, 2015 @ 7:18 PM
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been crucial to the MCU, writing screenplays for the Captain America films in addition to Thor: The Dark World. It makes sense that the two would continue their work well into Phase 3. Not only are they re-teaming with Joe and Anthony Russo for Captain America: Civil War, but the pair will now also write both parts of Avengers: Infinity War, making them the rug that ties the room of the MCU together.
