When he and a young girl discover they have a telepathic connection, new complications arise. Worse, he displays similarities to his father and is struggling to deal with his “shining” powers. [via: Variety] One of the most iconic horror movies ever is getting a follow-up, and it looks like Rebecca Ferguson may be along for the ride. Ferguson’s role in the film is still not clear, but she comes to the project with numerous movies behind her. She’d star alongside Ewan McGregor, who already signed on to play the adult version of Danny Torrance, the young boy from the first movie. Like “The Shining,” “Doctor Sleep” is based on a novel written by Stephen King. It focuses on Danny (or Dan, as he’s called as an adult), who is still traumatized after everything that happened at the Overlook Hotel. She most recently starred in “The Greatest Showman” and will appear in the upcoming “Mission: Impossible — Fallout.”

“Doctor Sleep” is scheduled to open in 2020. The first book was published in 1977, while “Doctor Sleep” followed much later, in 2013. The actress may co-star in “Doctor Sleep,” a sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film “The Shining.” Ferguson is in negotiations to join the project, Variety reports.

And who knows, maybe he could get back on the road soon…”

‘Baby Driver’ was released one year ago today. And who knows, maybe he could get back on the road soon… for now. No sequel has been confirmed at this point, but Wright again showed that he’s interested in one. pic.twitter.com/MgtRlPACau

In the past, the writer-director has definitely been pro-“Baby Driver 2.” He told Empire’s podcast last July that “there’s somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters.” Better still, in December, he shared that talks were already in progress, according to Slash Film. Had a wild ride with it in the last 365 days. The one-year anniversary of the release of “Baby Driver” would have been the perfect time to announce the sequel, but since Wright’s tweet seems to hint the movie is coming at some point, we’ll be happy with that … “Had a wild ride with it in the last 365 days. [h/t: Slash Film] so I thank you for all your beautiful responses, it means everything. so I thank you for all your beautiful responses, it means everything. “‘Baby Driver’ was released one year ago today,” he wrote. “Baby Driver” is officially a year in our rearview, but the film’s writer-director sounds ready for that to change. Edgar Wright celebrated his action crime flick’s one-year anniversary on Thursday with a tweet, and in it, he hinted at another ride with Baby (Ansel Elgort) in the near(ish) future.

Shia LaBeouf, on the other hand, is not coming back, according to Koepp in September; it’s unclear whether or not that will change with Kasdan now holding the pen. Collider reports that he’ll replace David Koepp. The upcoming action-adventure film is no longer on track to make its release date, sources tell Variety. Director Steven Spielberg and star Harrison Ford will work together once again, which is always a reason to be optimistic. Apparently, production is not going to kick off in April 2019 as it was scheduled to. Variety reports the schedule has shifted back by a months at least, and possibly even a year. The other big news related to the franchise to recently come out is that “Solo: A Star Wars Story” writer Jonathan Kasdan has been brought on to pen the script. If you were planning to see “Indiana Jones 5” on July 10, 2020, you should make alternate plans. The fact that the script isn’t done is a factor in the film’s reported delay, according to Variety. So far, Disney has not confirmed news of the delay, but hopefully we’ll know soon which date we should keep clear for the opening of “Indiana Jones 5.”

[via: Variety] Hopefully, “Indiana Jones 5” will be worth the wait.

“Game of Thrones” Season 8 premieres in 2019 — and it’s just too far away. When he said his character’s parting words to Cersei basically meant “I don’t love you anymore,” he also noted that people don’t always mean what they say during an argument. “Who knows if it’s true?”

Given that Coster-Waldau knows how the series ends, he knows if it’s true. It seemed long overdue for Jaime to see his sister clearly, but now Coster-Waldau has cast doubt on whether he truly did. We hope not, though; it’s been nice seeing him become a better person throughout the series. “That’s, of course, said in a moment of passion,” he told Variety. Spoilers ahead if you haven’t yet watched Season 7, Episode 7. Or did he? Just when you think you have an inkling of where a “Game of Thrones” character’s storyline is headed, something makes you doubt yourself. The actor recently discussed Season 8 with Vanity Fair, and he made us question everything that happened with his character in the Season 7 finale. Coster-Waldau could just be trying to throw us off track, of course, but his point does make sense. This time, it’s an interview with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. When he realized that she intended to betray Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Jaime walked away, effectively shifting his allegiance away from her once and for all. [via: Vanity Fair] There is certainly the possibility that Jaime might relapse in his resolve to give up on Cersei. After seven seasons of staunch devotion to his twin-slash-lover, Jaime Lannister (Coster-Waldau) finally realized that Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is a cruel tyrant.

You’ll grow out of trick or treating and getting in costume, but “Hocus Pocus” is forever. Folklore!), so here are nine that will make you want to put the film on right this minute. The 1993 Disney Halloween classic is practically as old as the Sanderson sisters these days — the film turns 25 on July 16, 1993 — although it doesn’t look a day over “let’s watch it again!”

There are many reasons “Hocus Pocus” stands the time (Three top-of-their-game leads! Curses!

The most important part of the action is basically done with one camera, particularly the convoy sequence. It’s a stand-alone movie, essentially, where everything has a bigger scale. It’s exactly the example I used. No. And it’s one of the reasons I loved the script. It’s a completely different movie, but being respectful and being in the same world. It’s like the “Alien” series. Exactly! And in this movie, you don’t have any filter. This, I felt, was really close to my style. “Sicario: Day of Soldado” is in theaters now. I love to work with anti-heroes. And then you find directors who have a specific vision that you can recognize. It’s a challenge. It’s what I’ve done all my life. The less you know going into the movie, the better. It’s completely done from the inside. You make a decision, it’s a risky one, but you’ve got to make it work. Well, I haven’t spoken to Taylor [Sheridan, the screenwriter] but I’m pretty sure he’s working on it. And that’s the reason I said, “Absolutely, yes.”

Can you talk about your approach to shooting this movie? You’re about to go into an even bigger movie with “Call of Duty.” Did you play the videogame? Most of all, I want to make it a movie. They had to say, “Okay, I was this Alejandro in the first one,” for example, “I was moved by rage, by the desire for vengeance, and now I am protecting the daughter of the guy that killed my family.”

And, for example, that beautiful scene [involving] sign language, you have a sort of tone shift in that scene where you show something unexpected. And when things get out of hand, it’s up to del Toro’s Alejandro to make a very difficult choice. You are in a strange position because they already have played the character, but the tricky part and the smart part of the script is, like — in the first one — they were watched by Emily Blunt’s character, and her character was a sort of audience surrogate and a moral point of view because she was judging them constantly. Because it was a challenge for them, too. So you have these two characters in front of you, and they are going to face so many difficulties that are going to be put in front of them that, of course they — as an actor — have to explore new aspects of their own personality. But people have made mistakes with videogame movies in the past. Moviefone: What was it like going from Italian gangsters to the Mexican cartel? It’s like “Alien.” You have some of the characters — you go back and forth in time, you don’t give a s**t. No. But more than the world, because the world is something you have to study a little bit before approaching a movie, it’s more that they have the same style and the same approach to the movie that I love. I felt it was really important to do it with a fresh point of view with fresh energy. I know, but this is just a challenge. It’s more that I play and then I watch them play. And that follow-up is finally here, in the form of “Sicario: Day of the Soldado,” a movie that reunites Brolin and del Toro (Blunt sat this one out), for a story of escalating violence in Mexico and the ways in which the American government both facilitates and reinforces that violence. This makes the journey really interesting. Well, they know these characters. So we did both. A movie is completely different than a videogame. I’m a huge fan. Were there similarities? Chances are, if you’ve seen Denis Villeneuve’s 2015 thriller “Sicario,” you were riveted. What is the appeal for you, as a filmmaker, to do “Call of Duty”? When they announced this movie, they made it seem like you’d be back for the third movie. I think that the movie speaks for itself, “Sicario.” And “Soldado,” the script was pretty clear. It’s really, really good. It was also the type of movie whose world was rich and expansive enough that it practically begged for a follow-up. Ever since I played with my two kids, and then I died much faster than them. I’ll say this, when they offered me the project, I said I was going to do it — but I don’t want to use anyone from the previous movie. Sollima has made a number of Italian crime movies and television series, and will next turn his attention to a big budget adaptation of beloved videogame franchise “Call of Duty.” We got his thoughts on what it was like taking over the franchise, what it has in common with the “Alien” series, and why he wants to make a videogame movie, given that genre’s track record. It’s cool if you change. This is the reason I changed everybody. It’s also good for this fresh, different franchise to find another director who is crazy and who has a slightly different vision but has respect for the body of work. It was a cool experience. Was it hard to not have that audience surrogate? Did you talk to Denis before shooting? The only thing was to go deeper into these two characters and show something that was unexpected for the audience and for us too. Well, I used multiple cameras but only when necessary. You explore deeper and deeper these characters. Stefano Sollima: Oh, yes. It can get tricky. Of course. What was it like working with these actors? When I read the script, I thought that. The tale of a morally compromised CIA agent (Josh Brolin), who teams with a Mexican associate (Benicio del Toro) and a plucky young agent (Emily Blunt) following some gruesome murders on this side of the border, it was the kind of stark, uncompromising movie that created a nearly unbearable level of tension and suspense with each passing moment. But it sounds like you’d want another director to come in? But it definitely delivers on the high-octane mixture of thrills and political intrigue that the first film provided, with even more insightful cultural commentary. Because I felt that it was too interesting, the idea, to make this kind of trilogy by having different directors with the precise style and with the script that has a precise style. That’s exactly the opposite of the multiple camera concept. Because basically, what you have to do is just make a great movie. So you can imagine our thrill when we got to sit down with Stefano Sollima, the Italian director who took over for Villenueve and who made a movie all his own. No, never. This is not related to the first one. Was the Emily Blunt character ever in the script?

Ledger posthumously won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, the first time a comic book movie won an acting Oscar. Nolan opted to cut that moment, not wanting to give fans the impression that Robin would appear in the next sequel. The nomination was actually announced on the one-year anniversary of Ledger’s death. Christopher Nolan rarely has deleted scenes available for his movies. But there is a “TDK” deleted scene out there: After The Joker crashes Bruce’s fundraising shindig for Harvey Dent — and after Batman swan dives out the window to save Rachel from pancking onto a car — the villain gets into a getaway car, which can be seen in the below still. The shot of Batman standing precariously atop Chicago’s Sears Tower is real. 9. So let’s celebrate the film’s 10th anniversary by exploring some fun trivia about Christopher Nolan’s Batman opus. It made more money in its first week of release than “Batman Begins” did in its entire theatrical run. 5. The iconic Batpod motorcycle proved extremely difficult to drive. 8. Ledger’s distinctive face-licking tic came about for practical reasons. 12. “It felt like a movie that was about our world post-9/11, and played on our fears, and discussed our fears and why they existed and I thought that was incredibly brave and interesting,” he said in an interview. The Italian dub of 1989’s “Batman” features Giancarlo Giannini as the voice of Joker. 1. As a tribute to that film, his son Adriano was cast as the voice of Joker in “The Dark Knight’s” Italian dub. 2. Heath Ledger specifically wanted to create an interpretation of Joker that didn’t replicate Jack Nicholson’s performance in “Batman.” To do so, he modeled his performance mainly on rocker Sid Vicious and Malcolm McDowell’s character from “A Clockwork Orange.”

3. Cillian Murphy became the first actor to reprise the role of a Batman villain in a live-action film thanks to his cameo as Scarecrow. It weighed around 600 pounds and only one stuntman managed to drive it properly during filming. Prior to Maggie Gyllenhaal’s casting, other actresses considered included Rachel McAdams, Isla Fisher, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Bottom line, a decade later, this is still the movie we need and deserve right now. “The Dark Knight” became the first superhero movie to reach the billion dollar mark at the box office (though certainly not the last). 4. Director Sam Mendes admits that his first James Bond movie, “Skyfall,” was inspired by “The Dark Knight” and its tone. Katie Holmes declined to reprise her role as Rachel Dawes, forcing Nolan to seek out a replacement. Not only that, Christian Bale insisted that he be the one to appear in the shot, not a stunt double. 14. 11. Can you believe it’s been a decade since “The Dark Knight” hit theaters? An earlier draft of the script featured a reference to the fact that Rachel is related to Dick Grayson, the original Robin in the Batman comics. 13. “The Dark Knight” is thus far the only Batman movie where Batman doesn’t use a Batarang at all.10. Even ten years and a reboot or two later, this game-changing blockbuster is still widely regarded as the best Batman movie ever made. 6. Ledger found that his silicone facial prosthetics came loose when he talked, and the licking helped keep them in place. This speaks to his efficiency in how tight he shapes his scripts and their final product. 15. Other actors considered for the part of Harvey Dent included Matt Damon, Hugh Jackman, and Mark Ruffalo.7. While Bale’s raspy Batman voice is often lampooned in pop culture, Bale didn’t actually alter his vocal approach compared to “Batman Begins.” Nolan made the decision to digitally alter Bale’s voice in post-production.

Michael Moore is always good for opinion piece documentaries. It’ll fire up the people who agree, and piss off the people who disagree. Around the 1:40 mark of the video below, “The Late Show” aired a clip from the film, with Moore trying to get into Mar-a-Lago to visit “the southern White House.” It didn’t go well. He’s most famous for the 2002 film “Bowling for Columbine,” which won the Oscar for Best Documentary. This is his lane! It won the Palme d’Or at Cannes and became the highest grossing documentary to date. Bush’s administration and the War on Terror. “Fahrenheit 11/9” opens in theaters September 21. Want more stuff like this? In 2004, Michael Moore presented “Fahrenheit 9/11,” a documentary on President George W. Now it’s 2018 and Michael Moore is back with another incendiary political doc, this one flipping the title to “Fahrenheit 11/9.”

Moore was on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last night to talk about the film, and show off a brief clip:

“I’m finishing the film right now, it’ll be out September 21. Like us on Facebook. […] This is about how the hell we got in this situation, and we’re gonna get out of it.”

The “he,” of course is president Trump. Moore said he’s in the final edit at this point. Moore most recently directed/produced “Michael Moore in TrumpLand” in 2016 and was part of “Roseanne for President!” in 2015. It’s called ‘Fahrenheit 11/9,’ the night he was announced as President of the United States. As usual.

3.” So there’s room for two more. That must be the timeline we’re in now. There’s four years between, right? The Black Widow movie seems to be aiming for 2020, but it’s not set yet. “Ant-Man” got a sequel while making less money, but Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang also wasn’t shown getting vaporized in “Infinity War.”

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige talked about which characters are chosen for sequels, and how they schedule them, in a nice chat with CinemaBlend:

“When you’ve got, what is it now, six, seven separate franchises? Which two? So it is just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, whilst keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and keep doing different types of things.”

The earliest we would see “Doctor Strange 2” is 2020. It wasn’t clear what would happen with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange after his 2016 movie, which made more than $677 million at the worldwide box office. A new character’s first film? He had an appearance in between there. Sometimes it can be more. Could “Doctor Strange” slip in that quickly or would it more likely be 2021 or 2022 for him? Next year is already booked with the trinity of “Captain Marvel,” “Avengers 4,” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” So far, 2020 has “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. How many years between movies can you have? [Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange one, which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of [Avengers:] Infinity War. You know, [Thor:] Ragnarok was four years. Fans would love Shuri of “Black Panther” to get her own movie. It’s part of the scheduling process. Sometimes it’s where do those characters pop up? “Infinity War” has turned all future Marvel Cinematic Universe conversations into immediate *SPOILERS*, but that’s just the game we’re playing until after “Avengers 4.” We have to recognize who got dust-busted while also recognizing that they will somehow be back for more movies. Feige has talked about having plans for Korg and Miek from “Thor: Ragnarok,” so they may be back for some kind of standalone, or as part of someone else’s film. And then maybe “Black Panther 2”? Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook. Of the 14 million possible outcomes Doctor Strange saw in “Avengers: Infinity War,” one of them had to be getting his own sequel. There are so many options for supporting characters to break out, so it really has to be a tough chess game on Feige’s end to figure out which stories to tell when, and how to segue into the next one. So that seems to be maybe okay – sometimes, though, you want it to be less. Sometimes when people ask, ‘What about this character, what about that character?’ I go, ‘Well, it’s scheduling.’ And they go, ‘What’s he talking about?’ Scheduling. Next up is “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” which opens in theaters next Friday, July 6.

Love it. That’s overkill for sure… You can expect a surprise as well…

Look for it on Digital August 14, and on DVD/Blu-ray August 28. Woodley told The Times of the U.K. So she has to find a way to save them both. [Via: People]

Want more stuff like this? Woodley will also return for “Big Little Lies” Season 2 on HBO in 2019. Like us on Facebook. To maintain weight, the average woman is said to need about 2,000 calories a day; and about 1,500 a day if you want to lose one pound a week. she basically starved herself to portray her character’s hunger and desperation:

“For the last two weeks I had a can of salmon, some steamed broccoli and two egg yolks every day — 350 calories. I can’t sleep when I’m hungry so I would have a glass of wine to basically pass the f— out.”

Ah, the glamorous life of an actress! As you can imagine, “It was f*cking miserable” for Shailene Woodley to eat just 350 calories a day in the final weeks of filming for “Adrift.”

In the film, which is based on a true story, she plays one half of a couple stranded in the Pacific Ocean during a hurricane; the boat ends up in ruins, with no hope of rescue, and her fiancé (Sam Claflin) seriously injured. It’s basically a frappuccino. It was f—— miserable. #YOLO

“Adrift” is still playing in some theaters. So you can imagine that 350 calories (plus wine) a day is not enough. Sorry not sorry but we’ll go for 2,000+ if there are baked goods, pizza, and chips around. A glass of wine adds about 120 calories.

According to Watchers on the Wall, the true final wrap party will be June 30 in Belfast, with the full cast assembling. Most, if not all, of the “Game of Thrones” stars seem to be done filming. However, she also just scared a lot of fans when saying the upcoming Season 8 has the most death of any season. “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner was just on “The Late Late Show” last week — and then at Kit and Rose’s wedding — with her usual long reddish-blonde hair. #AskForWella #ad

Classic Hitchcock blonde. I started wearing a wig in season seven because I had dyed my hair blonde and it wasn’t the best experience, so we couldn’t really dye my hair back red. Want more stuff like this? Sophie Turner — who is naturally blonde, but not ice blonde — had previewed a hair change in a February interview with ELLE:

I heard you dye your hair red every week for Game of Thrones. Is that true? Like when Emma Watson chopped her hair off after Harry Potter. There was a previous wrap party, but the show hadn’t completely wrapped yet. Now I wear a wig, because I love my blonde too much. I haven’t thought about it, actually. Except for Jean Grey [in “X-Men”], I’ll have to go back to red at some point. Like us on Facebook. I’m really happy blonde. I don’t know. When Game of Thrones has its series finale will you do a crazy makeover to commemorate the occasion? Although now we can probably call that Khaleesi blonde. Now her hair is shorter and looks a lot more Daenerys Targaryen than Sansa Stark:

New beginnings, new #WellaHair! But now that’s all gone.

Robot” creator Sam Esmail directing all of the first 10 episodes and executive producing the series. Amazon already ordered two seasons, with “Mr. I’m talking about the Hitchcock thrillers where it was just about people and not about CGI. That is what we hope this show does.”

Check out the first three photos — showing Roberts seeming shocked by something; Roberts and Stephan James in a therapy session, and Sam Esmail directing Bobby Cannavale:

“Homecoming” will stream on Amazon Prime Video, but no release date has been announced at this time. The stellar cast includes Bobby Cannavale, Sissy Spacek, Shea Whigham, and — in a “My Best Friend’s Wedding” reunion — Dermot Mulroney playing Roberts’ boyfriend. Sam Esmail talked to EW about his ambition for this series:

“To me, there’s something about these old-school thrillers. It wasn’t about spectacle, but about flawed people doing flawed things and going down a road you didn’t think you were gonna go down, and being surprised at every turn. America’s Sweetheart is heading to TV — or at least streaming — with the new psychological thriller series “Homecoming.”

Entertainment Weekly just posted some first look photos, with the series following Roberts as Heidi, a Homecoming Transition Support Center caseworker who helps recently returned soldier Walter (Stephan James) transition to everyday life after deployment. “But as the pair get closer, Heidi begins to realize that Homecoming has much more nefarious motives than simply helping these soldiers.”

The series was adapted from the podcast “Homecoming,” but with some new twists. Want more stuff like this? Julia Roberts is just a girl, standing in front of a new Amazon series, asking you to love it. Like us on Facebook.

Ronan would play plucky protagonist Jo, while Stone would be elder sister Meg. “Little Women” has been adapted numerous times, including a recent miniseries on Masterpiece Theatre starring Maya Hawke and Emily Watson. The “Lady Bird” team is looking to fly together again. “Little Women” tells the story of the four March sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy — as they come of age during the Civil War. Streep would play Marmee, the benevolent and wise matriarch. Gerwig was previously set to write the script for the project, but now has taken on directing duties as well. Greta Gerwig has chosen her next directorial project, an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale “Little Women.” Her “Lady Bird” stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet are in talks to join the cast, as are Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Florence Pugh. She earned accolades for “Lady Bird,” including Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. Chalamet would play Laurie, the boy next door and a love interest for Jo.
