Wes Anderson Gets His
For his latest project, The French Dispatch, Wes Anderson has once again assembled a pretty impressive group of talents to bring his unique vision to life on the big screen. With the central plot being “a love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city”, the film will star Benicio Del Toro, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Timothée Chalamet, Léa Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Mathieu Amalric, Lyna Khoudri, Stephen Park, Owen Wilson, and Bill Murray. The French Dispatch is scheduled for a 2020 release.
New Texas Chainsaw
There will be a new instalment to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise thanks to Legendary Pictures. And if it all goes according to plan, Fede Alvarez, who helmed the Evil Dead remake in 2013 may be the one to produce the new horror flick. Although details are tight lipped at the moment, the new film will reportedly be a direct sequel to the 1974 classic. That original American slasher film directed by Tobe Hopper depicted a group of youths who get attacked by a deformed chainsaw-wielding lunatic.
The Craft Gets
Blumhouse is rebooting the witch fantasy horror drama, The Craft. The production is said to be a reimagining of the 1996 film, which revolved around a group of teenage students who dabbled in witchcraft. Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Christine Taylor starred in the original film. The new film will star Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone and Zoey Luna. Directing the film is Zoe Lister-Jones. The Craft reboot does not have a release date or production start date as yet.
GLOW Renewed For
The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling will return to Netflix for a fourth and final season. Netflix made the announcement on the show’s official Instagram account. The Emmy-winning and critically-acclaimed series will see Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, and Marc Maron reprise their roles with creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch returning as showrunners. The current season of GLOW had an open ended finale with some of the core characters off to begin their own journey.
