According to an extensive report from Variety, it looks as if WB and DC are spending big money to ensure that Justice League is a creative success and not a critical failure. Variety’s report claims WB is spending upwards of $25 million in reshoots they’re calling extensive, and adding an extra two months to the production. Because of this, it’s creating scheduling nightmares for its in demand cast – most notably for Henry Cavill, who is shooting Mission Impossible 6 and is forbidden from shaving his mustache he grew for the part. The reshoots for JL now are forced to digitally remove it from the movie. Insiders also report to Variety that Joss Whedon, who has now spent months overseeing the project, will not receive a co-directing credit.
The official Twitter account for 007 announced yesterday that James Bond will return in 2019. The twenty-fifth movie in the franchise will officially land on November 8th of that year, however, no director has been announced at this time. And though the tweet didn’t mention if Daniel Craig would be returning, late last night the New York Times dropped a report saying Daniel Craig’s return is a “done deal;” this according to two people briefed on the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid conflicts with Eon and MGM, the companies and studio behind the franchise.
OPENING THIS WEEK
BUY OR SELL
In a surprise to no one, Avengers: Infinity War is going to be one long movie. The third Avengers movie has been described as the culmination of the entire MCU with pretty much every MCU character showing up in the movie and its untitled Avengers 4 sequel. With most of the filming on Infinity War now wrapped, co-director Joe Russo revealed to Collider’s own Steve Weintraub during a backstage chat after the Hall H presentation that the final Avengers: Infinity War run time will very likely be at least two and a half hours.
According to a report from THR, Oscar winner Anne Hathaway is in talks to play Barbie in the long-in-the-works feature project. At the same time, rising Australian director Alethea Jones is in talks to direct the movie after being handpicked by Hathaway, who THR says was an integral part in choosing a filmmaker.
