Disney has put their live-action Mulan on the fast track to production by scheduling the film for a fall 2018 release. The studio is moving quickly to find an all Asian cast and an Asian director. Disney made an offer to Academy Award winner Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), but he declined.
But the mouse house isn’t the only studio working on a Mulan project. Sony is working on one as well, and the race is on. More on the story below.
Last year, Disney announced that they would be developing a live-action reimagining of Mulan from a script written by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (We’re the Millers) will produce.
It comes as no surprise that Disney would continue to adapt their animated classics given the huge box office successes of Maleficent, Alice In Wonderland, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book. And now the studio has confirmed that Mulan will be hitting theaters on November 2, 2018. More on the story below.
We’ve already gotten a pretty good idea of the magnificent creature that The Avengers and Thor star Chris Hemsworth will be up against in two-time Oscar-winning A Beautiful Mind director Ron Howard‘s latest, titled In the Heart of the Sea.
But the latest poster released for the movie really shows just how crazy big the beast that inspired Moby Dick is in this movie. You can read much more about In the Heart of the Sea and see the new poster below.
Warner Brothers has released a new trailer for In the Heart of the Sea, which is directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind) and stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers).
The movie aims to tell the true story of the events that would inspire author Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick, following the crew of a whaling ship in the early 19th century that finds themselves dealing with a massive creature one would need to see to believe.
You can read a full synopsis and check out the new trailer for In the Heart of the Sea below.
Colin Trevorrow is going to be a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the coming years. Though the filmmaker does have a few directing credits to his name, he got his first major recognition for his Sundance comedy hit, Safety [Not Guaranteed]. After that, he made the leap from small indie film to Jurassic World, starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, and more. The film, which takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, sees a fully functioning park complete with rides, interactive experiences, and family friendly shows. But behind the scenes, there is a villainous plan that will put the park and everyone in it, in real danger.
We were given a special phone interview with director Colin Trevorrow, where we got to talk about Jurassic World, making that jump from an indie film to a major blockbuster, the threat that social media and internet blogging leaks present to a film production, practical effects vs CG, Star Wars, and much more.
