Godzilla Minus One, Part II

During a recent Q&A hosted by Movie Walker (via Comic Book), Godzilla Minus One director Takashi Yamazaki revealed he’s potentially interested in helming a sequel set immediately after the events of the first film.

My honest feelings, I would like to see a continuation of those people’s story. If I could make it [A Godzilla Minus One sequel], I would like to make a movie that involves what happens to them after that.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes

In conversation with Empire (Coming Soon), Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes director Wes Ball revealed he decided not to cast Andy Serkis this time around because he feels the actor has become “too iconic” since the Rise of the Planet of the Apes trilogy.

We talked about it, for sure. Like, ‘Could you play another ape character?’ I entertained that thought for a long time, because I thought it would be f—ing cool. And Matt [Reeves] would always say, ‘Andy is the best actor I’ve ever worked with.’ He’s just too iconic, in a way. So we decided it’s probably best to think about future movies where maybe he can come in.

Red One

THR reports Red One, the mysterious Christmas/action movie starring Dwayne Johnson, Chris Evans, J.K. Simmons, Lucy Liu, Kiernan Shipka, Bonnie Hunt, Kristofer Hivju, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis and Wesley Kimmel is now scheduled for a November 15, 2024 theatrical release date.

Mortal Kombat 2

Shining Vale

TV Line reports Shining Vale has been canceled at Starz after two seasons.


Speaking with TV Line, Mike O’ Malley stated the unaired fourth and final season of Snowpiercer will eventually end up “somewhere” if not TNT.

I’m trying to get an answer on that. But that entire fourth season is in the can and that’s going to end up somewhere.

Stranger Things

According to a new report from Jeff Sneider’s The InSneider newsletter (via Coming Soon), Frank Darabont is in talks to direct two episodes of Stranger Things’ final season.

La Brea

An “old colleague” of Gavin’s is found hiding in a secret military base in the synopsis for “Maya,” the January 23 episode of La Brea.

As Gavin and Sam search for a secret military base, they’re surprised by an old colleague of Gavin’s who just may hold the clues to finding Eve. When Ty and Sam try to figure out how to bring their friends home, Ty becomes sidetracked as he confronts his demons from his past.
