Gossip, Rumors and Other Guesses
CBS All Access:
Stephen King’s The Stand is heading to CBS All Access as a 10-part mini-series. No release date yet.
The streaming company is creating a series based on the video game Resident Evil. Season 1 will premiere late 2020 or early 2021.
The WWII comedy Catch-22 will premiere in May with George Clooney writing and starring in the show.
At the Box Office:
The Black Widow movie has started filming, so I would expect to see it released early 2020.
Remakes & Sequels:
Check out the tweet “Everybody can relax, I found the car”. So far it is confirmed Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson will reprise their roles!
You may have heard about the Dune reboot, but have you heard the names of the people on this project? Denis Villeneuve directing (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049), Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Javier Bardem as Stilgar, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto, Dave Bautista as Rabban and Stellan Skarsgard as Baron Harkonnen. I am really looking forward to this.
Blumhouse is rebooting The Invisible Man and may use the Dark Universe script, picking up where The Mummy dropped the ball.
Night Flier’s Pick
This time I am taking the obvious path and picking Avengers: Endgame. This will be a wrap up of over ten years and 20+ movies of which I have seen most of and I know most of you have seen them also. I also think this may be the peak of the superhero craze. They will not go away, but from here on out I think we will see a decline in their popularity.
I have my seat reserved!
