The Craft reboot just keeps finding new castmates. Ruben Fleischer is already thinking about Zombieland spinoffs. Lucifer will get downright musical and noir in its last season. The CW wants a spinoff of The 100. Plus, what’s to come on Supernatural, and the end begins for Arrow. Spoilers away!
Deadline reports Michelle Monaghan is the latest to join the cast of The Craft reboot in a currently undisclosed role.
Deadline also confirms Taylor Kitsch will play the lead in Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming sci-fi thriller, Inferno. The story is said to concern a cop (Kitsch) convinced a serial killer has extraterrestrial origins, which ultimately puts him “face-to-face with a humanoid beast who will stop at nothing to exterminate the one witness to [its] crime.”
Untitled Body-Swapping Horror Film
THR also has word Uriah Shelton will join Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton in the cast of Christopher Landon’s currently untitled horror movie concerning a body-swapping serial killer.
In conversation with THR, director Ruben Fleischer revealed he’d “love” to give Zooey Deutsch’s Zombieland character, Madison, her own spinoff movie.
I would love to do a Madison standalone movie. So, I think that story remains to be written. That would be a fun thing to go find out. That actually would’ve been a good post-credit scene where those two [Madison and Berkeley] are in Babylon just being pretty dumb together.
According to Variety, Kevin Adams and Joe Ksander are attached to co-direct comic book films based on Fathom and Soulfire in hopes of kickstarting an Aspen Entertainment cinematic universe. Fathom concerns a marine biologist who can turn her body into water, while Soulfire is a future-set sci-fi fantasy series about a boy and a goddess tasked with bringing magic back to Earth.
