Universal Pictures
Because the world contains a finite number of graphic novels written by Mark Millar, and because everyone’s gotta eat, money-in-the-bank filmmaker Matthew Vaughn is in the process of striking a deal with 20th Century Fox to direct a new project based on a fresh script that the studio purchased extra-specially for him.

Back in April, we reported that in-demand screenwriter John Ridley had been caught in Marvel’s web of cross-promotion, inking a deal to develop a TV show that would spin off a key property from the already-popular Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. program. The specifics of that project still have yet to take shape (though we’re all keeping our fingers crossed that the M.O.D.O.K. solo show America so richly deserves will soon come to pass), but today brings news of a new endeavor for Ridley with no less social import. The Academy Award-winning scribe of 12 Years a Slave has announced that he will take the director’s chair once again to helm a feature about the notorious 1992 Los Angeles riots catalyzed by Rodney King’s savage beating at the hands of the LAPD.

A remake of Road House is a little questionable, but when you throw UFC badass Ronda Rousey into the role originated by Patrick Swayze, things get a bit interesting. And things just got a whole lot more interesting as the project has found an unlikely director in Nick Cassavetes, son of iconic director John Cassavetes and director of…The Notebook. Of all things.

‘Kingsman 2’ Filming Officially Delays ‘Robin Hood: Origins’

20th Century Fox
A couple of weeks ago we learned that Fox was planning on moving ahead with the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, with writer / director Matthew Vaughn currently working on the screenplay. There was just one tiny issue: Kingsman made a leading man out of Taron Egerton, and his commitment to starring in Robin Hood: Origins for Lionsgate was causing a bit of a conflict. It seems that the conflict has been resolved, but unfortunately for Lionsgate, their Robin Hood movie is going to have to wait.

Fall TV has already brought us an avalanche of superheroes from The Flash to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., leaving Supergirl the outlier with an October 26 premiere. Still, Superman’s cousin isn’t shy about beefing up her power pack, adding Transporter TV series star Chris Vance in the role of Kryptonian villain “Non.”

Charlize Theron’s Awesomeness Inspires Gender-Swap for Action Thriller ‘The Gray Man’

by Britt Hayes 17 hours ago
Warner Bros.
It’s not unheard of for a film to change the gender of its leading role to accommodate an actor. Salt was originally intended as a vehicle for Tom Cruise before they simply changed the protagonist’s name for Angelina Jolie to star, and Sigourney Weaver’s iconic Alien hero Ripley was famously conceived as a man. You can add another cool gender-swap to the list, as Charlize Theron is in talks to join action thriller The Gray Man, playing a role that once attracted Brad Pitt.
