Sylvester Stallone And Frank Grillo Teaming Up For 80s Remake

It has been recently revealed that one of Stallone’s early films, Nighthawks, a beloved cult classic released back in 1981 and one of the grossly under-appreciated action films of the star’s career, is being revived as a limited series with Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Bruck Rumlow/Crossbones i.e., Grillo set to portray the lead character.

While plans of revisiting Nighthawks have been in the pipeline since 2019, it was only last year that Sylvester Stallone confirmed that the film is getting a remake in the form of a streaming series by Universal. And now, Frank Grillo has spilled more beans about the highly-anticipated show. There is an ongoing search for an actor to the late Rutger Hauer who played Wulgar the terrorist in the original film. Even though he will be leading the story this time, which will be a limited series, it doesn’t mean that Stallone is not in the picture anymore. Not only is Stallone directing the series, but at some point in the story, he will also be a part of the plot. Whether he is set to appear as DaSilva or some other character is yet to be disclosed.

I loved Nighthawks as a kid, and I’m excited that this will be a series, it will give Stallone as a director to further flesh out characters he knows so well.

Disney+ taps Bryce Dallas Howard to direct female-led ‘Flight of the Navigator’ reboot.

Disney Studios is developing a reimagining of its 1986 sci-fi live action feature Flight of the Navigator with a female lead, a project that Bryce Dallas Howard is attached to direct and produce for Disney+.

The original movie, starring Joey Cramer, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Veronica Cartwright, follows a boy who travels eight years into the future from 1978 and has an adventure with an intelligent, wisecracking alien ship, named Max. Paul Reubens provided the voice of Max in the film which was released in late July 1986 grossing an uninflated $18.6M at the domestic B.O.

Because little GIRLS can navigate UFOs as well, you PIG!

Succession Finally Has a Season 3 Premiere Date

Succession season three finally has a premiere date, meaning we can finally launch that countdown clock we’ve been thinking about since the second season ended nearly two years ago. The critically acclaimed series will return on Sunday, Oct. 17, which is exactly two years and four days since we last laid eyes on the Roys. In other words, it’s about time.

WOOT!

Elizabeth Olson Wraps Doctor Strange 2 & The Boys Season 3 Wraps

No premiere date for the next installment of the Amazon series has been set, but cast members took to social media today to gleefully celebrate the production wrap of Season 3.

The third part of the series will tell the story of Vought’s first superhero, Soldier Boy (played by Jensen Ackles) and his Payback team, focusing on his WW II exploits and how we arrived to this point in the storyline.


Thanks to makeup artist Tricia Sawyer and a new Instagram post, we now know that the upcoming movie is finished with reshoots. Sawyer posted a photo of herself, hair stylist Karen Bartek, and Olsen in the makeup trailer, with the caption reading, “We’re not so ‘Strange’ anymore! That’s a wrap.”

WOOT! Can’t wait for both of these projects to come to life!

Did Tom Holland spoil the crazy surprise in ‘Spider Man: No Way Home’?

It was back in mid-June 2019 that Holland might’ve confirmed the big No Way Home multiverse secret. At the time, Holland and his costars were doing the press rounds for the Far From Home movie, which was just two weeks away.

The look on his face said it all.

Don’t worry Tom. This movie is the worst kept secret in Hollywood. Let’s all remember… the animation studio did it first.

TOP GUN and JACKASS release dates pushed to 2022

Paramount Pictures has pushed the released date of TOP GUN back from November of this year to May 27th, 2022, Memorial Day weekend.

It was also announced that Jackass: Forever will now be released on February 4th, 2022, instead of October 2021.

Yeah… Movie Theaters are fucked.

Want to see the new BATMAN trailer? You’ll have to wait.

DC confirmed that the second trailer for The Batman will premiere at 2021’s FanDome event, which takes place on Saturday, Oct. 16. The virtual convention will also give fans new looks at The Flash, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and Shazam! Fury of the Gods, among numerous other DC projects.

Can you believe the first look trailer premiered a YEAR AGO? I’m not excited for THIS film, but I am excited that DC is making a move against continuity. Where the MCU cannot get out of continuity, the DCU has a chance to make individual stories. A good story is a good story, not everything has to fit into one sandbox.

“Fresh Prince of Bell-Air” remake is a drama, and have cast it’s new Will

This is a story all about how Will Smith turned Jabari Bank’s life upside down. Watch as Smith surprises Banks and breaks the life-changing news that he has been cast in the iconic role of “Will”. Look out world, there’s a new Prince of Bel-Air in town.

Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air is a serialized dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.

Because no-one in Hollywood has an original idea what-so-ever. Someone call HBO, maybe this series can have a crossover with “Euphoria”.

‘The Rocketeer’ Making A Comeback On Disney+

Disney is reviving a cult classic favorite, The Rocketeer, with a new Disney+ movie titled The Return of the Rocketeer. David and Jessica Oyelowo are producing under their Yoruba Saxon banner. The project, written by Ed Ricourt, will also be a possible starring project for the Selma actor.

The Return of the Rocketeer will have an all-new creative directive, with Ricourt’s story focusing on a retired Tuskegee airman who takes up the Rocketeer mantle.

There is a lot of talk on the internet about “race swapping” especially when it comes to super heroes, but I don’t think this is a problem when it comes to the Rocketeer. It is not a comic-based hero, or an established brand. Having someone else pick up the mantle seems like a good fit. And having a Tuskegee airman involved, could provide much needed depth to the character. However, I will miss Jennifer Connelly’s boobs.

JUNGLE CRUISE Sequel Officially in the Works

Disney has announced that a Jungle Cruise sequel is in the works.

Johnson and Blunt are both returning to reprise their roles, and Jaume Collet-Serra is also signed on return as director, while Michael Green is back to write the script.

JUNGLE CRUISE was “alright”, but nothing to write home about. I thought Johnson and Blunt were great together, but I didn’t like the fantasy elements and the heavy-handed special effects. It will be interesting where they take the sequel, based on where the left off Johnson’s character at the end of the first movie.
