An Eventbrite description of an upcoming event with James Cameron and Tim Miller hints that the two are working on a Terminator project together.
Join filmmakers James Cameron and Tim Miller on the Paramount Lot for an exclusive conservation with The Hollywood Reporter’s Matt Belloni about their collaboration on the upcoming Terminator.
It’s hard to tell if this is the professed new movie to allegedly “reboot and conclude” the series that Cameron was planning on doing with Miller or something else, however, but it seemingly backs up that months-old rumor.

An American Werewolf in London
Speaking with Collider, John Landis revealed he thinks it’s a bad idea for his son, Max Landis, to remake his beloved werewolf movie.
I advised him not to do it. I think he’s putting himself in a bad position. My son is brilliant, he really is, and he wants to do it. So what am I going to say? No? I know it won’t be as bad as ‘An American Werewolf In Paris,’ which was shit. So, I don’t know.
Also speaking with Collider, Jason Blum confirmed the new Spawn will be a low-budget affair.
This Spawn movie is a kind of superhero movie, but a very different kind of feeling superhero movie. I like the idea of low-budget superhero movies. It’s cool.
ET has a set report—a shot from which seemingly shows Chris Hemsworth in his post-gladiator get up performing a motion that looks like he’s summoning Mjolnir, indicating (unsurprisingly) Thor could get his trusty hammer back by the end of the film.
Alicia Vikander spoke to THR about playing Lara Croft.
She’s a very loved character, like you said, and I grew up playing the games, and I was thrilled when I was fifteen and I saw the films with Angelina Jolie. She really made her into an icon with those films. The video game went through quite a change and it got rebooted in 2013, and it’s very much an origin story. And it’s kind of the next door girl taking on a journey of becoming the action hero that we very much know her to be. So, I definitely think there’s a lot of elements there, both honoring the character that people know of and a lot of new elements that they will hopefully be surprised and engaged to see.
