The Grudge

Bloody-Disgusting reports Andrea Riseborough is in talks to star in the second US reboot of The Grudge. Based on a script by Jeff Buhler (Midnight Meat Train), Riseborough would play a detective a single mother investigating casualties linked to the curse.


Here There Be Monsters

Though details are virtually non-existent, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales director Joachim Rønning is slated to direct an upcoming sci-fi/thriller that will “assuredly include water,” according to a frankly spectacular line in a THR report.

The upcoming, future-set Zorro movie is beginning to sound a hell of a lot like Batman Beyond. That Hashtag Show claims that the recently-cast Kiersey Clemens plays “Z,” a vigilante naming herself after Zorro, the hero she grew up idolizing. Gael García Bernal will play her mentor (possibly the original Zorro, or even a torchbearer of the mantle himself) looking to pass on his unique, swashbuckling skill set. Together, the duo set out to take on the one villain neither can directly stab—a corrupt corporate entity known as Wayne Powers M-Corp.
