No Time to Die
Billie Eilish has officially been hired to write and record the No Time to Die theme song.
Paul Feig provided an update on Dark Army during a recent appearance at the Television Critics Association.
I’ve written the first draft and now I’ve got some notes from the studio and I’m doing a rewrite right now. Another genre, another genre to have fun with, to treat seriously but also to make fun and have a good time with. I’m in a rewrite and hoping it will go forward. You never know in this business.
The Play-Doh Movie
Feig was also able to confirm he is indeed still attached to direct a Play-Doh movie for Hasbro’s Allspark Pictures.
Yeah, still working on it. We’ve been through a million concepts. That’s the thing. It seems easy but it’s literally such a giant palette to paint on that we’ve just struggled to make sure we tell it in the most fun way without copying anything that’s gone before. It’s still plugging along. It will happen one of these days.
