‘Parasite’ Filmmaker Bong Joon Ho Working On New Action-Horror Animated Film About The Deep Sea

If you still haven’t watched the 2019 Oscar-winning film, Parasite, then I’m not sure what you’re doing with your life. I mean, you were likely home most of 2020, you couldn’t find two hours to watch it?

Bong Joon-ho is the genius behind the movie. He directed/co-wrote the black comedy thriller.

And now, he’s reportedly working on a new film. Variety reports that the project is an action-horror animated movie about deep-water sea creatures.

The screenplay, which was completed in January, was written in collaboration with Korean animation company 4th Creative Party, which has worked on several of Bong’s movies, including SnowpiercerOkja, and Mother.

In addition to working on this movie, Bong is also developing a series based on ‘Parasite’ with HBO. He’s working with Adam McKay on the adaptation.

Oh, and he’s also writing an English-language film based on an undisclosed true event from 2016. This is expected to be his next feature film.

So yeah…the dude is busy, and we’re thankful for it. We need more Bong at the cinema!

Focus Features Set To Release Paul Schrader’s Revenge Thriller ‘The Card Counter’ This Fall

Paul Schrader is one of Hollywood’s most respected filmmakers. It would take forever to list out all the great films he’s been involved in making, but most recently, he directed/wrote the lovely film First Reformed. The film won multiple awards and was nominated for Best Screenplay at the Oscars.

And now, he’s ready to have similar success with his upcoming revenge thriller, The Card Counter.

The flick stars Oscar Isaac as a dude who just wants to play some cards.

His spartan existence on the casino trail is shattered when he is approached by Cirk (Tye Sheridan), a vulnerable and angry young man seeking help to execute his plan for revenge on a military colonel (Willem Dafoe). Tell sees a chance at redemption through his relationship with Cirk. But keeping Cirk on the straight-and-narrow proves impossible, dragging Tell back into the darkness of his past.

Tiffany Haddish also co-stars in the movie, proving she’s more than just a comedian trying out acting.

Focus Features announced this week that they plan to release the movie on September 10.

This means a trailer will likely be coming within the next couple months. We’ll keep you posted.

Check Out Dev Patel In The Upcoming A24 Medieval Fantasy, The Green Knight

A24 might be known more for their horror films and indie darlings, but their latest project is a little different.

Dev Patel stars in the upcoming medieval fantasy story, The Green Knight. The movie, which was directed by David Lowery, stars Patel as Sir Gawain, King Arthur’s nephew.

It was originally supposed to premiere at the 2020 South by Southwest festival, but it was pushed back due to the pandemic.

Joining Patel in the movie is Alicia Vikander, Sean Harris and Joel Edgerton.

Based on the 14th-century poem ‘Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,’ Gawain will come face-to-face with ghosts, giants, thieves and schemers, all while learning to define his own character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and the kingdom.

This is the first fantasy-adventure film A24 has released, so you know they’re hoping for a huge win here.

The Green Knight is set to hit theaters on July 30, 2021. Check out the trailer below…

Josh Duhamel Emailed Armie Hammer To Wish Him Well Before Replacing Him In ‘Shotgun Wedding’

If you somehow forgot, Armie Hammer was basically accused of being a freaking cannibal and was forced to remove himself from the upcoming romantic comedy, Shotgun Wedding.

He was supposed to film the movie alongside Jennifer Lopez, but then everything went to sh*t when several women accused him of sexual misconduct. They also shared texts of him basically craving their body parts and blood.

Anyway, Josh Duhamel signed on to replace Hammer in the movie, and they recently wrapped production on it. And during a recent interview, Duhamel shared that he reached out to Hammer via email.

I know Armie a little bit, and when I knew I was gonna get the part, I emailed him and said, ‘Listen, I know you are going through it right now, I don’t like to get roles like this and I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and good luck, get through it,’ He emailed me right back and said thank you so who knows, hopefully he gets through it.

“Who knows” is right. Hammer has since been dropped by his publicist and his agent. You know things are bad when your publicist drops you.

Hammer’s estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers, spoke out about the messy situation back in February.

For weeks, I’ve been trying to process everything that has transpired. I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated. Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know.

My sole focus and attention will continue to be on our children, on my work and on healing during this incredibly difficult time. Thank you for all of the love and support.

As for Shotgun Wedding? Well, it’s expected to hit theaters in June 2022.

Watch Matt Damon In First Trailer For Upcoming Dramatic Thriller ‘Stillwater’

Matt Damon has a new film coming out, and it’s a return to the dramatic thriller genre.

He stars in the upcoming film ‘Stillwater‘ from director Tom McCarthy. In the flick, Damon plays an oil-rig worker from Stillwater, Oklahoma, who travels to France to try and exonerate his estranged daughter over a murder she did not commit.

In addition to Damon, this movie stars Abigail Breslin, Camille Cottin and Deanna Dunagan.

Recently, McCarthy talked about the project with Entertainment Weekly. During his chat, he talked about all the research Damon put in.

Matt and I started going [to Oklahoma] early on to get a taste of the place and the people and spending time with roughnecks, in particular. They really opened up their lives to us, and their worlds and their families. They were incredibly instrumental in helping us shape the story.

Stillwater is set to hit theaters on July 30. Check out the trailer below…

This Is Cool: Edward Norton Is Joining Daniel Craig In ‘Knives Out’ Sequel

Knives Out was a surprise hit back in 2019. The murder mystery film from Rian Johnson made over $300 million at the box office against a budget of just $40 million.

And now a sequel is coming. Actually, two sequels.

It was reported back in March that Netflix agreed to pay over $400 million for the rights to two sequels. It was agreed that Johnson would return to write/direct, and Daniel Craig would reprise his role as detective Benoit Blanc.

Now we are hearing some big casting news. Edward Norton is set to co-star in the upcoming sequel alongside Craig.

Plot details for the sequel are unknown at this time, other then Craig’s Blanc returning to solve another mystery revolving around a large cast of suspects. It is also unknown who Norton will be playing in the pic.

Production is expected to begin this summer in Greece. And while we don’t know much about this sequel, we know the script must be pretty great if Norton is agreeing to star.

We’re super excited for the sequel. For both sequels, actually. The first sequel should be released in 2022, and one would assume the third installment would come in 2023 or 2024.

Watch Kevin Hart In The Surprisingly Sweet Trailer For Netflix Film ‘Fatherhood’

When you think of most Kevin Hart films, you think silly. And that’s not an insult. Silly doesn’t automatically mean bad. Sometimes all you want is to laugh, and Hart has provided us all with many laughs.

But his latest film, Fatherhood, promises to be a little different. There will be laughs, but there may also be a few tears.

Hart stars in the Netflix film as a widower with a newborn baby, who is forced to step up and raise his daughter without a mother.

With a family who doesn’t believe he can do it and a couple friends who don’t seem to offer much help despite having their heart in the right place, Matt pretty much has to tackle all the trials and tribulations of being a father on his own.

The project is based on the memoir, Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love, written by Matthew Logelin.

In addition to Hart, this movie stars Alfre Woodard, Paul Reiser, Lil Rel Howery and DeWanda Wise.

And as you probably expected, this movie is set to premiere on Netflix during Father’s Day Weekend, June 18.

Check out the trailer below…

Idris Elba Set To Star In Christmas-Revenge Flick ‘Stay Frosty’

Well, we’re super excited for this one. Warner Bros. is celebrating today after winning a pretty insane spec auction for the script, Stay Frosty, written by Tyler Marceca.

The studio will pay over $1 million for the script, which is big money these days for a spec script.

Idris Elba is attached to star and Sam Hargrave is set to direct.

After miraculously surviving a bullet to the head, a man has to figure out who wants him dead and why. He needs to stop the assassin while still making it back home in time to spend Christmas with his son.

They’re hoping to build a John Wick-type franchise, with the feel of an 80s action film like Die Hard.

It sounds like it has the potential to be a pretty entertaining flick, especially with Elba starring in it.

No word on when filming might begin, but it likely won’t start until the winter or possibly even 2022. I wouldn’t expect to see this film in theaters until Christmas 2022, at the earliest.

But hey, I think it’s going to be worth the wait. Also, what a bada** title…Stay Frosty. I love it.

Owen Wilson Set To Star In Superhero Film ‘Secret Headquarters’

It’s not a secret anymore. Owen Wilson is set to star in the upcoming family action superhero film, Secret Headquarters.

The movie is being directed by the duo behind Project Power, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. According to the reports, Jerry Bruckheimer will produce.

Joost & Schulman & Josh Koenigsberg are writing the current draft. The story is from an original screenplay by Christopher Yost.

The film is a high-concept family action movie about a kid who discovers the secret headquarters of the world’s most powerful superhero hidden beneath his home and must defend it with his group of friends when villains attack

Sounds like an interesting concept. No word on who Wilson will be playing in the movie, but if we had to bet, he may be the clueless father who ends up being a secret superhero himself.

This will be the second superhero project for Wilson recently. He’ll be starring in the new Marvel series Loki. It’ll drop on Disney+ next month.

Wilson be getting them big bucks!

John David Washington Headed Back To Sci-Fi Genre, Will Star In Upcoming Film ‘True Love’

John David Washington was the star of last summer’s sci-fi thriller Tenet, which ended up being a little bit of a disappointment, though, that wasn’t Washington’s fault. He was great in the film.

And he’ll be returning to the sci-fi world in the upcoming Gareth Edwards film, True Love.

The plot details have not been released, but we do know it’s a sci-fi story set in the near future. This project was first announced back in February with New Regency on board to produce/finance the film.

‘True Love’ will be the fourth feature from Edwards, who first hit the scene with his 2010 hit Monsters. Since then, he’s been in charge of some pretty big budget films, including Godzilla and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In total, he had more than $350 million to play around with.

No word on what kinda budget he’ll be working with on this film. Since it appears to be an original story, it probably won’t be as much, but it’ll likely be up there considering it is a sci-fi film, and typically those cost more to produce.

We don’t know when this flick is expected to be released, but we’re assuming sometime in 2022.

We’ll keep you posted.
