Directed by Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Netflix’s Stranger Things), Free Guy stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) as Guy, a bank teller who discovers he is actually an NPC (non-player character) in a popular video game and decides to become the hero of his own story.
For anyone who missed the news, Netflix has made the unsurprising announcement that Stranger Things season four is officially a go.
The announcement was made with the release of a brief video, which can be found below. In addition to confirming season four, Netflix has also announced that they’ve signed Stranger Things creators and showrunners Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer to a new multi-year overall deal which will include both series and films.
Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi, was unremarkable to say the least. Reynolds has gone on to do other things like Deadpool while Waititi is perhaps better known for his directorial efforts, some of which also featured him in starring roles.
And now it looks like the long-awaited reunion between the two is finally happening. But not for a Green Lantern sequel. According to new reports, the two will pair up for Free Guy, a video game based comedy. More info on the project below.
Unsolved Mysteries was the true crime television series that documented cold cases and unexplainable paranormal activities. In its prime, the show, hosted by Robert Stack from 1987 to 1992, focused on criminal cases, UFOs, accounts of miracles, missing persons, and other inexplicable phenomena.
Now it is headed for a reboot from Netflix and Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy. Reports say that the reboot will focus on those themes and elements of what made the original famous. However, it will be interesting to see how well the show it will hold up with a new generation without Stack, who passed away in 2003. More on the report below.
Anne Hathaway is one of the many A-list talents who has visited Sesame Street, appearing in Elmo’s Christmas Countdown in 2009 to sing “I Want A Snuffy For Christmas” (seen below) with Big Bird and Snuffleupagus.
Now it looks like she will have a larger Sesame Street role. New reports say the actress is being eyed to star in a film based on the long-running children’s show alongside Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, and many more. Check out the full report, below.
