There were many great performances in American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson, and Courtney B. Vance’s portrayal of defense attorney Johnnie Cochran was one of the absolute best (to say nothing of fellow MVPs Sarah Paulson and Sterling K. Brown). It looks like critics and audiences weren’t the only fans of Vance’s work on the series, as the actor is making a pretty big leap to the big screen, joining Tom Cruise in Alex Kurtzman’s reboot of The Mummy.

One of the most frustrating parts of my job are the complaints from some viewers that never line up with reality. When people want to talk about movies with me, the first question after “What should I see right now?” is always some variation of “Why are there so many sequels? Why doesn’t Hollywood make original movies?” I hear this all the time. But the sequels continue to make huge money, while the occasional risk-taking originals tend to fare poorly.

After a few delays, Universal is preparing to kickstart their new shared universe of classic monster reboots. The franchise will begin in 2017 with The Mummy, and casting has been ramping up, with Tom Cruise recently confirmed to headline Alex Kurtzman’s directorial debut. Annabelle Wallis, star of Peaky Blinders and Conjuring spin-off Annabelle, is in talks to join Cruise in the cast of the modern day action-horror flick, in which she’ll play a scientist who will presumably have a lot of ’splaining to do.

We’ve heard about Top Gun 2 for several years now, but with the passing of original director Tony Scott and Tom Cruise’s consistently busy schedule, it’s hard to believe that it might actually happen. We may be closer to that long-developing sequel than ever before, as Cruise has met with producer Jerry Bruckheimer about Top Gun 2, and there’s photographic evidence to prove it.

Rebecca Ferguson nearly stole the show right out from under Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, so it was hardly surprising when we learned that Paramount wanted the actress to be the first leading lady to appear in more than one M:I film. It looks like Christmas has come early for Paramount (and all of us), as Ferguson is reportedly set to reprise her role as Ilsa Faust in Mission: Impossible 6.

After it was announced that Tom Cruise would be starring in The Mummy reboot came rumors that the Mummy itself in the movie might actually be a woman. Well, Universal have kept their promise and gender-swapped the gauze-wrapped monster, casting Kingsman star Sofia Boutella (the sword-legged Gazelle) as the new Mummy.

There were not many ways to get me excited in a Mummy reboot, the first in a planned series of connected movies linking The Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein and more, but Universal has found a way. Tom Cruise is in talks to star in The Mummy and is expected to take a major role in developing the new monster universe.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was one of the best M:I outings yet, thanks in no small part to Christopher McQuarrie’s script and direction, as well as Rebecca Ferguson’s kick-ass supporting role. Paramount clearly recognizes a good thing when they’ve got it, as the studio is reportedly in talks with McQuarrie to return to both write and direct Mission: Impossible 6, with the option for Ferguson to reprise her role, if she wants it.
