“We feel incredibly lucky to have an icon creating a new take on an iconic character,” said executive producer David Katzenberg. “Mark is a gifted actor and celebrated vocal performer, and he’s approached this challenge with incredible energy and commitment.”
Norwegian filmmaker Lars Klevberg (“Polaroid”) will helm the adaptation, from a script by Tyler Burton Smith (“Quantum Break”).
The original “Child’s Play” grossed over $44 million worldwide on a $9 million budget and created one of the

“We’re getting ready to shoot in a few months’ time,” states Courtney. “There’s not much else I can reveal about it but yet, you’ll be seeing Boomerang back for sure. I’m happy, it’s going to be fun. It will be different, for sure, but it’s going to be great.”
Gunn’s follow-up to 2016’s Suicide Squad is said to feature “mostly” new actors and characters, and we already know that Idris Elba is set to take over the role of Deadshot from Will Smith. However, it’s been rumoured that Margot Robbie will be returning as Harley Quinn,
Dark Phoenix won’t open in theaters until June 7 but the film’s reputation has taken a beating for months with some of the harshest advance word of any major superhero sequel since, well, the franchise’s previous installment, X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. It was not clear, however, how much of that negative word was informed by genuine firsthand knowledge and how much of it was an early-bird pile-on by negative nellies.
With the Disney acquisition of Fox, Dark Phoenix can be viewed as a lame-duck entry in a short-timer superhero
The film will be produced by Marc Platt, Falcone and McCarthy. Spencer is coming off exec producing Best Picture winner Green Book, and she most recently was Oscar nominated for The Shape of Water and Hidden Figures after winning for The Help. McCarthy is coming off an Oscar nomination for Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Spencer is repped by Wme and Jackoway Austen Tyerman; McCarthy and Falcone are repped by CAA and Mgmt.

Described as “the next chapter” in the story started in 1984, it will involve the passing of a torch to a new generation of paranormal investigators. It will be
“Dumbo’s” launch is slightly lower than recent Disney forecasts for the live-action re-imagining of the 1941 animated movie. “Dumbo” earned $2.6 million on Thursday night and is expanding to 4,259 North American venues.
The movie stars Danny DeVito as the owner of a struggling circus who enlists Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock. The children’s love for the sad-eyed pachyderm helps him fly. Michael Keaton stars as a shady entrepreneur, with Alan Arkin as a Wall Street tycoon and Eva Green as an aerial artist.
“Dumbo” is produced by Justin Springer, Ehren Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder, and Derek Frey.

That doesn’t make it a dud, but it does reaffirm how hard it will be for the theaters to recover from the early-year disappointments. This month was expected to put a significant dent in the shortfall, and it did — at the end of March, the year-to-date revenue decline is 17%, compared to 27% at the end of February.
However, this week’s performance doesn’t get much of the credit. The total gross for all films will be very close to the same weekend last year. And as we approach what is considered “summer”, it will become harder to make up the difference.
“Dumbo” is one of the multiple tentpole franchises that makes Disney, even before

During the past 12 months, the guild has deftly revved up its organizing infrastructure around the agency franchise agreement talks. An obscure contract that hadn’t been touched in 46 years became the focus of a wildly successful WGA membership outreach campaign. That’s in part because the guild’s drive to reform the Artists Manager Basic Agreement of 1976 came from the grassroots — a steady stream of complaints from members about what appear to be systemic abuses of the TV packaging process, a creative template for compensation invented by William Morris Agency in the days of radio.
Whatever the impetus,

The vote was 7,882 in favor of creating a new “Code of Conduct” for agents representing WGA with 392 voting against — that’s more than 95% supporting. The new rules require elimination of agencies receiving packaging fees and having ownership interest in affiliate production companies — demands that the agencies have said are not feasible.
Online voting among the 15,000 members ended Sunday. Unless the WGA and agents can hammer out a negotiated compromise this week, the “Code of Conduct” will be imposed on April 7, following expiration of the current franchise agreement. It will require WGA members to fire agents who have not signed on to the code.
That will create a confusing scenario for the industry as few agents have signed on to the code. Some WGA
The big winner of the night was “Black Panther” which took home eight trophies, including Outstanding Motion Picture, Outstanding Directing in a Motion Picture, and Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture.
In the television categories, “black-ish” topped all winners with five awards, including Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Comedy Series.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé was honored as the NAACP Entertainer of the Year, and Congresswoman Maxine Waters was presented the NAACP Chairman’s Award.
Additional winners included radio host and personality Tom Joyner who was presented with the Vanguard Award, which recognizes an individual whose groundbreaking work increases our understanding and awareness of racial and social issues.
Both McCarthy and Spencer are coming off Oscar successes. McCarthy nabbed her first Best Actress nomination for her work in Marielle Heller’s black comedy “Can You Ever Forgive Me?,” and Spencer took home the statue as a producer on “Green Book” when the period comedy won Best Picture. With such wins fresh in the minds of executives, it’s a no-brainer to pair up these two beloved talents.
An actor himself, Falcone has written
