The Bourne Identity Director To Helm Justice League Dark

Well, colour me surprised. I didn’t think Warner Bros was proceeding with a “Justice League Dark” movie. What with all the (misguided) outrage over the DCEU being “too dark”. But now, not only is the adaptation still on, the studio has secured a director for it. Today, Variety ended months of speculation over the fateContinue Reading

Daisy Ridley To Star In Post-Apocalyptic Thriller Chaos Walking

Ever since her breakout role in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, Daisy Ridley’s been on a hot streak.

There are some videogames with such inherent cinematic value that you wonder why they haven’t been turned into feature films already. “Splinter Cell” is a good example. A creation of author Tom Clancy (“The Hunt For Red October”), the espionage thriller series of games has not only been picked up for adaptation, it has aContinue Reading
