In a new report from CNBC, talks between Fox and Disney are back on and have moved far enough along that it looks as though a deal is in sight and could be announced as early as next week. As previously reported, the assets for which 21st Century Fox are looking to sell off include the film studio properties like X-Men, Deadpool and Fantastic Four, along with their tv properties and non-broadcast TV parts including FX and National Geographic – reportedly worth $60 billion dollars.
During the press event for Star Wars The Last Jedi, Mashable was able to speak with director Rian Johnson about his plans for his new trilogy of films set outside the Skywalker Saga. The outlet specifically asked about a certain property fans are hoping to see onscreen – that of an adaptation of the popular video game Knights of the Old Republic.
BUY OR SELL
Ahead of the first trailer that will be dropping Thursday night, EW has revealed new plot details for the Jurassic World sequel: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The follow up sees the return of Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing, in a story that will be set several years after the events of Jurassic World.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Edgar Wright confirmed that Sony is looking to do a Baby Driver sequel; with talks already in the works to make something happen. While Wright has a number of projects in the works, he doesn’t yet know which project of his he’ll tackle first.
Just ten days before John Travolta’s John Gotti biopic was set to open, Lionsgate has abruptly cut ties with the movie and sold the finished film back to producers. According to the Tracking Board, the producers for Gotti are expected to seek a new distribution deal for the movie, with the planned release date of December 15th now looking to be impossible to hit.
