Doctor Strange 2

In a recent interview with Cinema Blend, Kevin Feige confirmed a sequel to Doctor Strange is in development.

Sometimes it’s where do those characters pop up? [Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange one, which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of [Avengers:] Infinity War. So it is just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, whilst keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and keep doing different types of things.

Suspiria

In a recent interview with Indiewire, Chloe Grace-Moretz hyped the Suspiria remake as “the closest to modern Stanley Kubrick I’ve ever seen.”

This is a really big statement, but this is the closest to modern Stanley Kubrick I‘ve ever seen. You’re put into a world, which I can only describe it as being like ‘The Shining’ in a lot of ways, where you’re just encompassed in a filmmaker’s brain and you’re just implanted in there, and there’s nothing like it that you will ever see. That was a crazy movie to be a part of. Here’s the thing, it’s so secretive that it’s super locked down. It’s secretive and I want it to be secretive because you guys are gonna be so shocked. It is WILD. It’s crazy. I can say this, I speak German mainly in the movie. So you won’t recognize me very well. I seem like a different person and I sound like a different person.

Gideon Falls

THR reports a TV series based on Jeff Lemire’s comic book, Gideon Falls, is now in development at former Valiant Entertainment CEO Dinseh Shamdasani’s new production company, Hivemind. In a press release, Shamdasani stated:

Gideon Falls is one of the most inventive stories in comics today, colliding a psychologically complex and intellectually nuanced cast against a stark and terrifying terrain of science fiction and horror. It’s no surprise that it comes from the brilliant minds of two of the most talented creators in the comics medium — Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino — or that it sparked a massive multi-studio bidding war.
