The Matrix 4
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight before a special screening of his sister’s new movie, Semper Fi, Keanu Reeves described the script for the fourth Matrix movie as “very ambitious—as it should be.”
Meanwhile, Barbara Crampton stated the upcoming Castle Freak remake would be better described as a “reimagining” in a recent interview with Movie Web.
First of all, it’s not a remake, it’s a reimagining. I only say that because I just want people to know the story is completely different. We have a completely different premise for the story. The characters are all different. There are a few similarities. There is a freak. There is a castle. There is a character named Rebecca and there’s a character named John, but who they are and their relationship is completely different, and we have a whole new cast of characters.
Zombieland 2: Double Tap
Speaking with Fandango, director Ruben Fleischer revealed the film’s zombies can be divided into four categories: Homers, Ninjas, Hawkings and the newly-evolved T-800s.
I think our heroes are a little complacent because the zombies don’t present much of a challenge anymore. They’ve started to categorize them into different groups. There’s ones that they call Homers, who are kind of the dumber zombies. There are the Ninjas who are a little bit more crafty and they might sneak up on you. And then there’s the Hawkings, who are smarter zombies.
There’s a new kind of zombie that they haven’t met before called a T-800, a name for the infamous Terminator. These T-800s are much more dangerous, threatening form of zombie. For the first time, I think our heroes feel like they’re in true jeopardy because of this newly evolved form of zombie.

Deadline also reports Broadway performer Daphne Rubin-Vega has joined the cast of the CW’s musical Riverdale spinoff as Luisa, a former Rockette and “doting mother” of Katy’s roommate, Jorge/Ginger, who now owns a bodega in Washington Heights.
The Walking Dead
In conversation with Variety, Jeffrey Dean Morgan stated he believes The Walking Dead has “another three years” of material before it’s “run into the ground.”
You don’t want to run it into the ground. Me personally, I’d say let’s go out on top. Let’s go out still being the number one show in the world. Whether or not that happens, I don’t know. I think if we just stuck with the comic book, we’ve still got another three years. We do deviate a lot, but I think there’s probably a good three years of material there.
