Anthony Russo is still teasing the run time of Avengers: Endgame. Kumail Nanjiani is joining the adaptation of Any Person, Living or Dead. Detective Pikachu shows off its unique take on a few classic Pokémon. Plus, what’s to come on Legends of Tomorrow and The Twilight Zone. Spoilers, away!
Iron Fist’s Jessica Henwick has joined the cast of the post-apocalyptic coming-of-age monster drama as the currently unnamed love interest of Dylan O’Brien’s character. According to Deadline, O’Brien will “travel through a hostile environment to find the girl of his dreams.”
Any Person, Living Or Dead
Deadline reports Kumail Nanjiani is attached to star in a film adaptation of Simon Rich’s short story concerning a time-traveling scientist who assembles a think tank of history’s greatest minds “to solve all of humanity’s problems.” Unfortunately, “his plan fails to take into account language barriers, ancient racism and the tendency of medieval men to commit murder. Instead of learning from these Great Men of History, our hero has no choice but to hunt them down and blast them to the past before they can ruin our future.”
Anthony Russo confirmed the film’s rumored three-hour run time is more-or-less accurate in a recent interview with Fandango.
We don’t have an official locked runtime yet. Yeah, [but] we are right at about that.
