Untitled Jennifer Kent/Guillermo del Toro Project
The Babadook director Jennifer Kent revealed she’s “got something on the boil” with producer Guillermo del Toro in a recent interview with Bloody-Disgusting.
Look, we’ve got something on the boil. I’m not being secretive but I’m not sure I can talk about it. It’s something scary and I really admire him and his work. I think he’s a true artist so I’m excited to know more. We’re in [the] early stages of that.
I’m such a horror nut that the genre confusion of Get Out broke my heart a little. I set out to make a horror movie, and it’s kind of *not* a horror movie. As a horror fan, I really wanted to contribute something to that world.
In the same interview, Peele revealed the film is heavily inspired by the classic Twilight Zone episode, “Mirror Image.”
[Us’s] initial inspiration, appropriately enough, was the old Twilight Zone episode “Mirror Image.” It’s terrifying, beautiful, really elegant storytelling. And it opens up a world. It opens up your imagination.
The Lion King
Appearing as a guest on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Billy Eichner revealed Beyoncé and Donald Glover perform “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” as a duet in the live-action Lion King remake.
I play Timon, and Timon and Pumba start singing ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight,’ and then it segues into Beyonce and Donald Glover singing it.
Danny DeVito also revealed how Dumbo gets his name in a new interview with Screen Rant.
What I found was really great was the mama elephant, Mrs. Jumbo, and baby Jumbo, ‘cause you know he doesn’t get his name Dumbo until they... there’s a big brouhaha in the tent and the “J” falls and the “D” falls. I don’t know if that’s in the... this is different. This is more of a Tim Burton-esque way of doing it, it’s really cool.
