Gossip, Rumors and Other Guesses
In the stream:
CBS All Access: After many delays CBS has finally set a hard premier date of 9/24/17 for Star Trek Discovery. The first episode will be on broadcast and streaming, but if you want more you will need to pay for the All Access streaming service. When asked about the delays co-showrunner Aaron Harberts had this to say: “CBS has given us the time and the money to make something the fans will find worthwhile.”
HBO: Game of Thrones season seven will start 7/16/17. This season will only have seven episodes. It has also been announced that season eight, the final season, will only have six episodes. Further it is speculated we will not see the eight seasons until 2019. The word is they want to take their time and make the last 6 episodes perfect.
HBO does not want to let go of Westeros just yet, they have in the works up to five spin-off shows. I am sure we will be hearing more about that in 2018.
Amazon: The Tick will debut on 8/25/17
Remakes & Sequels: John Wick 1 & 2 writer will be back for chapter 3. Production to start this fall.
The Fantastic Beast Franchise will be doing more than name-dropping. A young Dumbledore will appear in the next movie, with Jude Law possibly filling the part.
Something Completely Different: We will be getting a new O.K. Corral movie, but this one will focus on Doc Holliday and is based on Doc and Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K. Corral. Jeremy Renner to play the title role. “I’m your huckleberry.”
Night Flier’s Pick
Spider-man was the first Marvel character to have a movie that did really well. I think the reason why is that Peter Parker has something we can relate to, the writers stick to his true character. All reports tend to indicate this movie was right on the mark.
Marvel has brought Stan’s favorite creation back home, and it looks to be a great reunion.
More when I have it.
