Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Aquaman 2

Since the announcement that actor Jason Momoa would play Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans have been wondering just how big a role Momoa’s King of the Seas will play in the film. The actor has finally explained things to EW: “It’s Batman and Superman. It’s not my movie. It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there… Justice League is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot Justice League.”

Suicide Squad

Viola Davis

While discussing the season finale of How to Get Away with Murder, Viola Davis had a few words to say about playing Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad: “As a comic book and Wonder Woman fan, I love the whole DC Comics universe. I traded comic books as a kid so all of that appeals to me. When you dream about being an actor as a kid, that’s what you dream about. That’s like play acting: being the superhero, getting the gun; it plays into that fantasy. How to Get Away with Murder changed my exposure. I don’t know if it changed the quality of roles as much as it changed the exposure. I mean certainly Amanda Waller is a fabulous character.”

The Stars My Destination

The Stars My Destination

Few science fiction novels are held in as high regard as Alfred Bester’s cyberpunk-prefiguring The Stars My Destinaton. First published in 1956, the book has never been adapted to film (though folks from Richard Gere to Paul W.S. Anderson have expressed interest), but that looks to change soon as Paramount is in talks to acquire the film rights.

The Founder

Birdman

Michael Keaton can do damn near anything he wants after the praise and awards showered on Birdman. And what the veteran star wants is to make The Founder, a biopic of Ray Kroc, the man behind global fast-food franchise McDonald’s success. The Weinstein Co. has just picked up the distribution rights for the FilmNation project, to be directed by John Lee Hancock and shot later this year.

According to Variety, the film “will focus on how Kroc — a milkshake dispensers salesman created one of the most powerful brands in the world. Kroc began working for the McDonald brothers in 1954 at the age of 51 as a franchising agent and bought the chain for $2.7 million in 1961.”
