Marvel Taps Oscar Isaac To Star in ‘Moon Knight’ Series’ – Deadline:

With his time in the Star Wars franchise coming to an end, Oscar Isaac now sets his sights on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Deadline is hearing he is in negotiations to star as Moon Knight in the Marvel and Disney+ series based on the comic book hero.

Jeremy Slater, who developed and wrote Netflix’s comic book adaptation of the Umbrella Academy series, has been tapped to develop and lead the writing team on the series for the streamer.

Oh fuck yeah.

I sure hope this is at least partially based on He Who Won’t Be Named’s run on the series, if not Jeff Lemire’s.

Sony Delays PS5 Launch Title Destruction AllStars to February, Makes It Free to PS Plus Members

Destruction AllStars coming to PlayStation Plus in February – PlayStation.Blog:

Hi everyone – we wanted to share a quick update on our plans for Destruction AllStars. We’ve decided to move the game’s release from November 2020 to February 2021, where it will be included for two months in PlayStation Plus at no additional cost.

Destruction AllStars is a multiplayer game that’s at its best when you’re competing with gamers online from all around the world. We want as many people as possible to experience the mayhem on PS5, and what better way to do that than to provide the game to our PlayStation Plus members?

I think the PS5 is going to be plenty hard to get this year, so for a game based on multiplayer, this is a wise move.

I know that at least personally, I thought the game looked intriguing, so with the option as a PlayStation Plus member to get it “free”, that’s a total win.

Apple and A24’s Next Project: BRIDE, Starring Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson to Star in ‘Bride’ for Apple, A24 – Variety:

Scarlett Johansson will produce and star in the science-fiction drama “Bride” for Apple and A24 from director Sebastián Lelio.

“Bride” follows a woman created to be an ideal wife — the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur. When she rejects her creator, she’s forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. While on the run, she finds her true identity, her surprising power and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.

Johansson and Jonathan Lia will produce “Bride” through their company, These Pictures. Keenan Flynn will co-produce. Lauren Schuker Blum (“Orange Is the New Black”), Rebecca Angelo (“Wolfman”) and Lelio are on board to write the script.

So it’s a 21st century reinterpretation of The Bride of Frankenstein, and Scarlett Johansson isn’t playing Asian. Win-win.

Yet ANOTHER BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Reboot in the Works for the Big Screen

Simon Kinberg to Write, Produce ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Movie for Universal (Exclusive) | Hollywood Reporter:

The Cylons are on the march.

Simon Kinberg has signed on to write and produce Battlestar Galactica, Universal’s long-gestating feature adaptation of its sci-fi TV franchise.

Kinberg, who was the main architect of almost a decade’s worth of X-Men movies, now has a new franchise universe to work with and will be starting from the ground up in telling the tale of humans on faraway planets on the run from a race of intelligent machines bent on wiping them out.

He will join producer Dylan Clark, who has long shepherded the project, which has attracted filmmakers such as Bryan Singer and Francis Lawrence over the years.

Why not? I mean, the TV reboot is now 16 years old, having gone off the air 11 years ago.

At the same time…

Tim Burton’s Working on an ADDAMS FAMILY TV Series, Apparently

Tim Burton Is Making An ‘Addams Family’ TV Series – Deadline:

In what would mark his first major live-action TV series, Tim Burton is setting his sights on The Addams Family, looking to develop a new series focused on the famous clan. Sources tell Deadline that Burton is negotiating to executive produce and possibly direct all episodes of this new take on the franchise. Smallville developers/executive producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will be head writers on the show and serve as showrunners as well as exec producers along with Burton.

I feel like Burton has been rumored to be working on an Addams Family project since the era of the Paramount movies in the 1990’s.

He’s definitely the right guy for such a project, but it also feels like autopilot.

I also wonder how this will play with the sequel to the CG animated movie (I never saw the first, if anyone can chime in how that was) due in October 2021.*
