Tim Miller’s pretty sure that Kitty Pryde movie is dead. Filming ends on Halloween Kills with another sneaky glimpse. Guy Pearce is ready for a spooky Christmas visitation in the BBC’s new Christmas Carol. Plus, new footage from Frozen 2, and Jumanji: The Next Level posters invite you to gaze longingly at...a horse? To me, my spoilers!
Andrea Riseborough is attached to star in Geechee, a supernatural thriller in which “a successful New York scientist decides to leave the city with her son to start life over in the remote Sea Islands off the Atlantic Coast. She quickly falls in love with the land and the people on the secluded island, but soon her world starts to unravel as the souls of the subjugated begin to haunt her dreams and her waking life.” [Deadline]
Speaking with Comic Book, Tim Miller stated his Kitty Pryde movie “will never happen now” following the Disney-Fox merger.
I don’t expect Marvel to call me and say, ‘Come do the X-Men,’ so I’m not waiting for that. I was really excited about my Kitty Pryde movie. Fuck, I love that movie. It’ll never happen now.
A Nightmare on Elm Street
In conversation with Coming Soon, Spectrevision’s Daniel Noah expressed interest in producing a new Nightmare on Elm Street movie directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer.
We have long fantasized having a crack at Nightmare on Elm Street. So has Adam Egypt Mortimer, who we just made Daniel Isn’t Real with. That film and Elm Street have somewhat obscure but still tangible similarities of dream worlds. As people have been seeing Daniel Isn’t Real, interestingly, there’s been a little movement on Twitter for Adam Mortimer to take over Nightmare on Elm Street. We’ve made no secret. We’ve been in touch with the rights holders many times. It’s a real dream project for us to have a chance to make a film in that franchise. And like I said, we have a very specific take on it. I think it would be very surprising and exciting to remake the franchise.
The Halloween franchise’s official Twitter page has our first looks at Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle and Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace in Halloween Kills.
