William Shatner to pop-up in Star Trek 3?

Badass Digest: “I have learned that the script for Star Trek 3 includes a scene that reteams Shatner and Nimoy onscreen as Kirk and Spock for the first time in canon since 1991′s Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. It would be a pretty huge moment for fans of the franchise, and likely the last time we’ll ever see Shatner as James T. Kirk in official continuity.”

Well, that will happen only if William Shatner decides to accept the role:

True Detective season 2 casts Colin Farrell

In an interview with Irish newspaper The Sunday World, Colin Farrell said: “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.

It is rumored that Taylor Kitsch will be cast as a second lead, while Vince Vaughn will play a more villainous character. True Detective season 2 is expected to be aired in the summer of 2015.

DC’s Suicide Squad is coming on the silver screens. David Ayer is rumored to direct it.

Suicide Squad, as presented in the comic books, is a DC team of villains turned secret operatives of the government sent in missions with very low chances of coming back.

It is reported that Warner Bros is in the early development of a film adaptation, with a script already written by Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li). David Ayer is known for Training DayEnd of Watch and the upcoming Fury.

For the moment, no release date has been announced, although it is expected that this is one of Warner Bros’ scheduled comic book adaptations between 2016 and 2020.

The script for Hansel & Gretel 2 is done

While Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters under-performed at the US box-office, it made enough money worldwide for the studio to green light the sequel. Tommy Wirkola wrote the script for the first movie and now he has said that the second one is also done.

Tommy Wirkola: “I’ve written the script for it,” Wirkola told me at Fantastic Fest. “I’ve given it to Paramount and it’s up to them now. But I don’t know what’s going to happen. Jeremy [Renner] is so busy these days, I don’t know how they’re going to juggle all of that, but it’s up to [Paramount]. We’ll see. Hopefully, I’ll get to do another film first. They really liked the script I gave them. The first film was a learning curve for me working in the studio system and the script I wrote for the original was so different. We ended up taking a lot out and altering stuff that first time. I’m smarter now. I tried taking what I learned and still delivered a sequel script that’s an R-rated action film.

But will it remain an R-rated movie? For now, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 is scheduled for release in 2016.

James Spader talks Ultron

James Spader: ”I’m Ultron, eight-foot robot. We finished the season of Blacklist, and two days later I got on a plane and flew to London to shoot the Avengers. And then right after that came back here to New York and flew immediately to Comic-Con. And then flew back from Comic-Con to start shooting the second season of Blacklist. But Comic-Con is the most insane…have any of you ever been to Comic-Con? [Several audience members applaud] Oh, my god, you brave, brave souls. It is crazy. I mean life really can’t get strange enough for me, but I mean it’s the craziest place I have ever been. But Comic-Con it’s all anticipation. They’re not getting a performance in any way, shape or form. It’s a tease, because it’s all anticipatory. It’s like foreplay for hours and days. It’s three days of foreplay. But what you don’t realize, it’s not like at the end of the three days you get that, it’s going to happen. They’re anticipating an event that’s not going to happen for six months or a year.
