Variety reports Illumination’s animated Super Mario Bros. movie is now officially in “priority development” and aiming for a 2022 release date.

Black Widow

In conversation with Discussing Film, previously attached director David Hayter confirmed that a rumored plot synopsis for Cate Shortland’s Black Widow is actually the logline to his scrapped pitch from the early 2000's, when the project was in development at Lionsgate—so perhaps don’t take it as guaranteed.

And somebody just put out a synopsis of the upcoming film based on my script because it was essentially an origin story but they basically described what my logline was.
