The classic 60s TV series The Fugitive will be rebooted for the big screen at Warner Bros. with director Albert Hughes set to helm the film. The franchise was previously adapted into a big screen project starring Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones. The film centred on a doctor who goes on the run after he is accused of murdering his wife. It will be interesting to see what direction Hughes takes for his vision of the story, if he intends to use the same characters or chart a new path for the film all together.
vs. Kong Pushed Back
It looks like we will all have to wait a while longer to see Godzilla take on King Kong on the big screen as the film has been effectively pushed back several months. Godzilla vs. Kong was initially supposed to hit cinemas in March but it will now be released in November 2020. No details were given with regards to the delay but chances are the decision may have been due to the modest box-office take of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Godzilla vs. Kong will tie in the Godzilla franchise with Kong: Skull Island, expanding the monster universe for Legendary Pictures.
Banks To Direct Invisible Woman
Although there is already an Invisible Man movie that is set to come out, Universal will also pull the trigger on an Invisible Woman film, which will be directed by Elizabeth Banks. The director will also pull double duty by starring in the film. Although not connected to the upcoming film by Leigh Whannell, the project is said to be inspired by the same storyline of the 1933 classic. No further details were provided, which means the film will likely be in the developmental stage at this point of time. The Invisible Man though will be released in February 2020.
E.T. Holiday Reunion
The characters from Steven Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial have reunited for a short film/TV commercial. Despite it being used to sell Xfinity products there’s a bit of nostalgia involved seeing the beloved alien and the original Elliot (Henry Thomas) who is all grown up. Titled ‘A Holiday Reunion’ the short sees E.T. return to Earth to visit his friend Elliot, who now has his own family. Interestingly, the commercial retains some of the feel good vibes of the original classic along with John Williams’ Oscar-winning theme.
