When then Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige came to the D23 Expo to announce that She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel would be three new TV series joining the Disney+ lineup, fans got excited. However, the three new shows were still in very early development without a cast or creative crew.
But now She-Hulk and Moon Knight have found writers to begin working on the projects. According to a new report, Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao will be working on the former, while The Umbrella Academy‘s Jeremy Slater will work on the latter. More on both of these stories, below.
Another familiar title could be on the way to becoming a new TV series. Fox has ordered a pilot for a series based on The Exorcist, the story of a pair of priests attempting to help a young girl dealing with a demonic possession.
The pilot for the potential series won’t be based on the 1973 classic movie of the same name, which won two Academy Awards for best writing and best sound, and was nominated for eight more. Instead, it will be a new and modern adaptation of the original 1971 book the movie was based on written by author William Peter Blatty.
After keeping production on The Fantastic Four, Fox’s reboot of the franchise, under wraps for months now, yesterday we finally got to see some behind-the-scenes photos and today the first trailer for the film.
Director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and screenwriter Simon Kinberg, who had described their new creation as a gritty, a more realistic take on the superhero team and its origin story, have filmed a video commentary for the nearly 2-minute trailer.
Earlier today, we talked about how the teaser trailer for The Fantastic Four is coming soon and how it will reportedly show a gritty take for Fox’s reboot of the franchise from director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and screenwriters Simon Kinberg and Jeremy Slater (X-Men: Days of Future Past). But while the film hits theaters this Summer, we’ve yet to see a drop of official footage or any stills from the production, which Trank recently said in an interview with Collider was a conscious decision.
But now, Collider has revealed the first behind-the-scenes look at the production for The Fantastic Four. One photo is of Trank on set, while the other is Kinberg with star Michael B. Jordan in his Human Torch suit.
A new movie is being developed based on Fables, the popular comic book series from Bill Willingham.
The movie is being developed by David Heyman, who was behind the Harry Potter movies, and Jeffrey Clifford of Heyday Films. Nikolaj Arcel is attached to direct from a screenplay written by Jeremy Slater.
