The world of movie news moves at lightspeed some days, so it’s hard to keep up with everything (even for those of us that run an entertainment blog). So welcome to your daily news briefing here at So, Is It Any Good? where we round up the breaking stories you might have missed.
Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna has joined the cast of Marvel/Fox’s upcoming superhero sequel Deadpool 2. No word on her character yet, just that old chestnut that it’ll be a “key role”.
Josh Brolin is going all out in his training for Cable in the film, getting absolutely shredded and showing off a new haircut:
Warner Bros is negotiating deals to get a relaunch of the Cannonball Run series up an revving. Director Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball) and writers Thomas Lennon & Robert Ben Garant (ANight At The Museum) are in talks to bring it all together.
Baby Driver director, and all-around nerd god, Edgar Wright has spoken about the various projects he has in development. What’ll we see next from the eclectic Brit?
We’ve got the first details and a picture from director Richard Linklater’s follow-up to Everybody Wants Some!!, road trip movie Last Flag Flying. An impressive cast (Steve Carrell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishbourne) leads the comedic drama about war veterans.
Director John Landis (The Blues Brothers) has thrown some serious shade at the MCU, saying he’s often “bored shitless”. Maybe a little less watching movies John, and a little more making them and then we’ll talk.
Chris Evans has explained why he decided to extend his Captain America contract until after Avengers 4. Seems as though old Cap will stay through to the end (of his arc).
Doin’ It For The Kids
Star Wars: Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow has given some more tidbits about the motivations behind the sequel’s story. Mysterious, he is…
Easter Egg Alert!
Turns out The Mummy (2017) lives in the same Universe as the Brendan Fraser trilogy, the Dark Universe. How bout that! There is an easter egg in the movie that acts as a nod to the previous incarnations.
Who’s The Greatest?
Empire has released their reader-voted listing on the Top 100 Greatest Movies Of All Time. At long last voting for something doesn’t mean catastrophic consequences for the whole world… unless they didn’t put The Dark Knight high enough!
Where Do We Go From Here?
Fellow Ghostbusters co-creator Ivan Reitman has weighed in on where the franchise could potentially go after the disappointing performance of the reboot. It seems like we’ll be forever talking about this, so why not speculate some more huh?
