Alas, Lupita Nyong’o probably won’t be in Bond 25. Patton Oswalt will lend his voice to the mighty MODOK. Clark Gregg hints that Agents of SHIELD’s recent renewals will really be its last. Plus, what’s to come on the cavalcade of CW/DC TV shows, and everyone wants to rule the world in new Game of Thrones posters. To me, my Spoilers!
It: Chapter 2
Appearing as a guest on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Jessica Chastain revealed It: Chapter 2 saga will include a scene featuring “the most blood that’s ever been in a horror film”.
I’m gonna say something and I think I’m gonna be in trouble but I’m gonna do it. It might be a spoiler, but in the movie there’s a scene that someone said on set that it’s the most blood that’s ever been in a horror film in a scene.
Deadline reports Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali has signed on to star in a new sci-fi film from director Marc Munden and A Quiet Place writers, Scott Beck, and Bryan Woods. Regrettably, no details on the plot are available at this time.
In light of recent rumors that she could be joining the film in the traditional ‘Bond Girl’ role, Lupita Nyong’o’s team recently reached out to Deadline to confirm Bond 25 “won’t work out with her.”
Screen Rant has a festive new poster for Ari Aster’s upcoming Pagan horror movie, Midsommar.
The Lost Boys
Cheyenne Haynes (Camping) and Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs) have been cast as Liza and Cassie, The Lost Boy’s gender-swapped incarnations of the Frog Brothers. Deadline also has word Sarah Hay has joined the series as the vampire, Mollie, who “travels in a small pack with her eternally 8-year-old son, Laddie, and a guardian, Hiram, who’s there to make sure she doesn’t get into too much trouble.”
Meanwhile, Patton Oswalt revealed he will voice the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing in the upcoming Hulu animated series, during a recent appearance on Late Night With Seth Myers.
I’m gonna be voicing him. He is a supervillain, he has superintelligence, he has a forehead beam, he has all this technology. But, he is not on the A-level of Doctor Doom and the Red Skull. So, not only does he hate all the heroes, he hates all the other villains because he’s so resentful. Getting to play that is going to be really fun.
Syfy has ordered David Dobkin’s Resident Alien adaptation starring Alan Tudyk to series. [Spoiler TV]
