Yet another director has parted ways with Warner Bros. due to good ol' "creative differences." Following Michelle MacLaren's departure from Wonder Woman, Seth Grahame-Smith has left The Flash solo movie, which is set to star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. The film was to be the author and screenwriter's directorial debut, and although he's no longer at the helm, The Flash will still reportedly use his screenplay.
Unlike Marvel, DC’s movie and television divisions aren’t working in tandem with one another for their shared universes, instead offering what’s been described previously as “alternate” reality versions, similar to the way comic books feature multiple versions of heroes existing on different earths or timelines. For DC and Warner Bros., this presents a challenge with at least one of their upcoming films, as The Flash movie will need to differentiate itself from its television counterpart. A new rumor suggests that they’ve figured out at least one way to do that.
“Oh great, another Jane Austen adaptation,” may be one of your thoughts during the first 30 seconds of the debut trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. “Fantastic, more British women in bonnets talking about books.” But wait, you totally forgot about the last word in the film’s title. ZOMBIES, BABY!
Several high-profile, wildly popular video games have been adapted into feature films, and several more are currently in development, including Assassin’s Creed and a new Tomb Raider movie. But here’s one you might not be that familiar with: Five Nights at Freddy’s. You’ll be very familiar with it soon enough when the horror video game makes the leap to the big screen.
Tim Burton has teased the return of ‘Beetlejuice’ for years now, but only over the course of the last year has the director seemed more committed to making the sequel to his 1988 film a reality. Now would probably be the best time, since ‘Beetlejuice’ star Michael Keaton has once again become a household name, picking up a Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination for his comeback performance in ‘Birdman.’ According to writer Seth Grahame-Smith, Burton isn’t wasting much time, and will likely begin filming ‘Beetlejuice 2’ as soon as later this year.
As previously reported, Cary Fukunaga’s adaptation of Stephen King’s iconic horror novel ‘It’ will begin shooting this summer, with Fukunaga filming the first in the planned two-part adaptation. In a new interview with Seth Grahame-Smith, the producer has confirmed that the film is moving rather swiftly into production, and tells us a little more about what we can expect from this highly-anticipated adaptation.
Oh, good -- the guy who wrote two of the worst movies last year is "polishing" the script for Josh Trank's 'Fantastic Four' reboot. Seth Grahame-Smith must have impressed someone at Fox because they've just hired him to work his, uh, magic (?) on 'Fantastic Four.'
