The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy

Rachel Nichols will star alongside Peyton List, Bob Gunton, Austin Stowell, Briana Middleton, David Walton, and Reese Alexander in Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead, Nightmare Cinema, Pooka Lives!) latest horror movie, The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy. Based on a script by Joe Russo and Chris LaMont, the film follows “billionaire Charles Abernathy (Gunton) who, on the eve of his 75th birthday, invites his four estranged children back home out of fear that tonight someone—or something—is coming to kill him. To ensure his family will help protect him from whatever’s coming, Abernathy puts each of their inheritances on the line—they’ll get nothing if he’s found dead by dawn.” [Deadline]


Fantastic Four

Emily Blunt denied to Insider she’s been cast as Susan “The Invisible Woman” Storm-Richards in the MCU’s upcoming Fantastic Four movie.

That is fan-casting. No one has received a phone call. That’s just people saying, ‘Wouldn’t that be great?’ I love Iron Man, and when I got offered Black Widow, I was obsessed with Iron Man. I wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. It would’ve been amazing. But I don’t know if superhero movies are for me. They’re not up my alley. I don’t like them. I really don’t. It’s been exhausted. We are inundated—it’s not only all the movies, it’s the endless TV shows as well. It’s not to say that I’d never want to play one, it would just have to be something so cool and like a really cool character, and then I’d be interested.


Birds of Prey 2

According to Margot Robbie, there’s currently “no sequel in the works” to Birds of Prey.

I don’t know if that is on the horizon anytime soon. I don’t think it’s a no. But no, there’s no sequel in the works that I’m aware of at this stage.

Untitled Whoopi Goldberg Superhero Film

During a recent interview with Variety, Whoopi Goldberg revealed she’s writing a superhero movie about an “older Black woman who acquires new powers and has to learn to use them.”

Since I was a little kid, I’ve been obsessed with superheroes. They’re all saving the earth all the time. But do you know who’s really going to save the earth? Old Black women.


Untitled Pixar Film

Pixar is looking to cast a teenage girl in the role of Jess, “a fourteen-year old transgender girl” in an unspecified new project.


Don’t Look Up

During a recent episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via /Film), Adam McKay described his upcoming doomsday comedy Don’t Look Up as a tonal cross between The Other Guys and The Big Short.

Definitely not as dark as Vice. Vice, I’d say, really probably ended up being a drama with some comedy. But Big Short, still, even though there’s drama in it – I would say this one is a tad more of a comedy than The Big Short…I don’t know if the Ferrell movies, because they’re so uniquely Will Ferrell – but somewhere in between The Other Guys and The Big Short, I’d say, is where this one lives.

The Falcon and the Winter Solider

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Kevin Feige hints that the show will utilize a location that was not “previously available” to Marvel Studios prior to the Disney-Fox merger:
