Mouse Guard

THR has word Mike Whitehall has joined the cast of Mouse Guard as Kenzie, “the calm and measured staff wielder who is often paired with [Samson] Kayo’s character, Saxson, a guard member who is a lush and a scalawag.”


Dark Forces

According to Variety, Orlando Jones will play “a monster movie director who becomes haunted by creatures from his own films while recovering from brain surgery” in Dark Forces, the latest film from The Timber director, Anthony O’Brien.


Space Jam 2

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reports Lebron James is having trouble finding NBA stars eager to make appearances in Space Jam 2.


Akira

Production Weekly’s synopsis for the still-not-actually-greenlit live-action Akira reveals several differences from both the anime and manga. As opposed to the source material, the story is now set in Neo-Manhattan, Kaneda and Tetsuo are biological brothers, and Kaneda is now gainfully employed as a bartender.

When a young man’s telekinesis is discovered by the military, he is taken in to be turned into a super weapon and his brother must race to save him before Manhattan is destroyed by his powers. Kaneda is a bar owner in Neo-Manhattan who is stunned when his brother Tetsuo is abducted by Government agents lead by the Colonel. Desperate to get his brother back, Kaneda agrees to join Ky Reed and her underground movement who are intent on revealing to the world what truly happened to New York City 30 years ago when it was destroyed. Kaneda believes their theories to be ludicrous, but after facing his brother again is shocked when he displays telekinetic powers. Ky believes Tetsuo is headed to release a young boy. Akira, who has taken control of Tetsuo’s mind, Kaneda clashes with the Colonel’s troops on his way to stop Tetsuo from releasing Akira, but arrives too late. Akira soon emerges from his prison courtesy of Tetsuo as Kaneda races to save his brother before Akira once again destroys Manhattan island as he did thirty years ago.

Untitled Christopher Nolan Project

In conversation with USA Today, Robert Pattinson described the script for Christopher Nolan’s mysterious event film as “unreal.”

I got locked in a room to read the script – I don’t have it myself. I’ve been a little wary of doing big movies for years and years, but there’s just something about Chris Nolan’s stuff. He seems like the only director now who can do what is essentially a very personal, independent movie that has huge scale. I read the script and it’s unreal.

We’re still not sure if it’s a genre project but we’ll keep you updated.


Morbius

A new Instagram video from Jared Leto gives us our first…official look at Morbius?


Hellboy

Lobster Johnson debuts in a gory, R-Rated trailer full of dismemberment and swearing, so…be careful where you watch.


Descendants 3

Arrow/CW Crossovers

When asked by TV Line if there’s a future for, err, Arrow’s future flashforwards beyond the end of the series, either in spinoff or crossover form, showrunner Beth Schwartz expressed hope that at least the latter might be a possibility:
