    Wasn't Rose McGowan slated to be Red Sonja at one point? I remember her touring comic cons or something trying to push for it. I thought it was already greenlit back then.

    It was, but then the project fell through for no reason.

    Although with the benefit of hindsight, I've seen quite a few people speculate that it was probably Harvey Weinstein who use his influence to kill the project, out of spite.

    Spider-Man Spinoff: MORBIUS the Living Vampire Movie in the Works

    [​IMG]

    Sony’s cinematic universe based on Spider-Man characters just got a little bigger. The studio is developing Morbius, a feature project centered on Spider-Man antihero Morbius the Living Vampire.

    Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, who worked on the recent Power Rangers movie, wrote the script, which was just submitted to the studio after a secret development process.

    Morbius was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane and first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #101, the first issue not written by Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee.

    Morbius is Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results. He instead became afflicted with a condition that was a form of vampirism — the thirst for blood, along with fangs and super strength — and fought Spider-Man. Over time, however, he became a slightly heroic figure in his own right.

    Details of Sony’s take on the character are not known. Sony has been furiously developing its stable of Marvel-licensed characters that are mostly based off the heroes and villains that are connected to Spider-Man. However, these new movies will not be connected to Sony’s Tom Holland movies and not connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is being produced by Marvel Studios.

    Sharpless and Sazama previously tackled vampirism with Dracula Untold, Universal’s origin of the most famous vampire that starred Luke Evans. They also count The Last Witch Hunter and Gods of Egypt among their credits. The duo also are showrunning and writing the Lost in Space reboot for Netflix that is to debut next year.

    IT Writer Tackling ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK for Paramount

    [​IMG]

    Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the early 1990s anthology show that aired on Nickelodeon, is getting the big-screen treatment. Paramount Pictures arm Paramount Players has hired Gary Dauberman, the writer behind the New Line horror movies It and Annabelle: Creation, to pen the script and produce the project,

    The conceit of Afraid of the Dark was that the stories in each episode were campfire tales told by a group of teens who called themselves the Midnight Society. The tales ranged from modern takes on fairy tales to stories involving creatures such as vampires and aliens.

    The show was initially a Canadian series that got picked up by Nickelodeon and aired as part of its Saturday night block.

    "The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones. We're going to celebrate that with this movie and honor the darker, scarier tone of the show, which was really groundbreaking for Nickelodeon at the time. I hope the Midnight Society approves," Dauberman tells The Hollywood Reporter.

    Dauberman has emerged this year as one of the hottest scribes in town, having co-written It, which has made $683 million worldwide, and penning the script for Annabelle: Creation, which has scared up $305 million. He is currently producing the horror movie The Children for New Line and is executive producing The Nun, a spinoff from the Conjuring movie series.

    Sam Mendes No Longer Directing Disney's Live-Action PINOCCHIO Movie

    [​IMG]

    Sam Mendes is no longer pulling the strings on Disney's live-action Pinocchio movie.

    The director has exited the animation adaption, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The feature, based on the classic 1940 cartoon, was penned by Rogue One scripter Chris Weitz.

    This isn't the first Disney project the Oscar-winning director has dropped. He was previously in talks for the live-action James and the Giant Peach adaption before exiting the movie for Pinocchio.

    After Bill Condon's Beauty and the Beast pulled in over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, the studio has multiple live-action movies based on their classic animation in the pipeline. Jon Favreau's Lion King movie will hit theaters on July 19, 2019, while Tim Burton's Dumbo movie and Guy Ritchie's movie musical Aladdin are currently filming.

    Mel Gibson and Frank Grillo to Star in Joe Carnahan's Action Thriller BOSS LEVEL

    [​IMG]

    Mel Gibson and Frank Grillo are in talks to star in Boss Level, an action thriller that Joe Carnahan will direct next year. The premise: Every day, a retired special forces veteran (Grillo) is trapped in a never-ending loop resulting in his death. In order to stop his endless suffering, he must figure out who is responsible and stop them. Carnahan wrote the script.

    The film will be financed by Emmett/Furla/Oasis, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian, and Randall Emmett and George Furla. It is a co-production between EFO, Di Bonaventura Pictures, Carnahan and Grillo’s War Party, and Scott Free, whose Jules Daly will be exec producer.

    Gibson comes to this after the successful opening of Daddy’s Home 2 at Paramount Pictures. He is getting close to securing indie financing for the film he will direct on the ruthless Italian banking family The Medicis to follow his Best Picture nominee Hacksaw Ridge. Other films he is plotting as an actor includes a re-team with Danny Glover and director Dick Donner for another Lethal Weapon film at Warner Bros.

    Grillo just worked with EFO on the action film Reprisal, and starred in the Netflix film Wheelman.

    WONDER's Stephen Chbosky to Write Disney's Live-Action PRINCE CHARMING

    Stephen Chbosky, whose drama Wonder opens this weekend, has signed on to tackle a Disney fairy tale. The writer-director will pen, with an eye to helm, Prince Charming, the studio’s reimagined take on the fairy and folk tale trope.

    The movie reunites Chbosky with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films/TV, who produced Wonder. Hoberman and Lieberman are producing Prince Charming along with Tripp Vinson.

    Matt Fogel wrote the initial script for the project, which is a revisionist take on the character popularized in Disney’s own fairy tale movies such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. The story takes a look at the iconic prince from the point of view of his brother, who never quite lived up to the family name.

    Chbosky wrote the book and then subsequently penned and directed the film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the acclaimed 2012 teen drama the starred Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. He also worked on Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast (which also was produced by Mandeville) as a writer.

    Wonder is the adaptation of the R.J. Palacio young adult novel that tells the story of a boy born with a facial deformity who enters fifth grade. The movie, which stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay, has been receiving strong reviews.

    James Franco to Star in Fox's MULTIPLE MAN from WONDER WOMAN Writer

    Fox is developing a film vehicle for James Franco to play the Marvel Comics character Multiple Man, with Wonder Woman scribe Allan Heinberg writing the script, and Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films producing along with Franco and Ramona Films, the shingle that Franco runs with brother Dave Franco and Vincent Jolivette.

    The character is part of the X-Men universe, which Fox controls and continues to exploit with Kinberg at the center of all the movies. Multiple Man is Jamie Madrox, who, in the comics, conveyed his cloning powers at birth, when a second, identical version of him appeared after the doctor slapped the infant to get him to breathe. His father, a worker at the Los Alamos Nuclear Research Center, moved his family to a remote farm where his son — fitted with a special suit to control his powers designed by X-Men patriarch Professor Xavier — lived quietly until the suit malfunctioned and he began to go crazy. His cloning abilities drove Madrox to have various collisions and collaborations with both the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Jeremy Kramer will oversee it for Fox and the deals are being made now.

    The film came out of another collaboration between Franco and Kinberg, The Hardy Men, which Kinberg scripted and is being scripted by Rodney Rothman as a potential star vehicle for both James and Dave Franco, whose Ramona released its first film, the James Franco-directed The Disaster Artist. The idea is for James and Dave Franco to play the grown up versions of the venerable teen sleuths The Hardy Boys, also for Fox.

    Fox has been aggressively mining the X-Men universe and its many characters. Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner produce the Josh Boone-directed The New Mutants, and the Ryan Reynolds-starrer Deadpool 2 with director David Leitch. Kinberg directed, scripted and produces X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Coming right behind that is Gambit, the Channing Tatum-starrer which recently got a commitment from director Gore Verbinski. Kinberg and Shuler Donner are producing with Tatum’s Free Association.

    DANGER GIRL Movie in the Works From RESIDENT EVIL, HITMAN Producers

    Constantin Film, the company behind the Resident Evil movie series, is eyeing a new female-fronted action franchise.

    The company has picked up the film rights to Danger Girl, the hit 1990s comic book, and is developing the title with Jeremy Bolt's Bolt Pictures and Adrian Askarieh's Prime Universe Films to produce films and television shows based on the fan-favorite property.

    Created by artist J. Scott Campbell and writer Andy Hartnell, Girl follows the adventures of Abbey Chase, an adventurer who was reluctantly recruited into a secret organization. Chase is then paired with operatives Sydney Savage and Natalia Kasstle on a globe-trotting adventure to locate a series of mystical objects and keep them out of the hands of the evil Hammer Syndicate.

    The comic was a blend of Indiana Jones, James Bond and Charlie's Angels and an instant hit when it debuted in 1998 from Jim Lee's Wildstorm imprint.

    The comic spawned a Sony PlayStation video game and was at one point set up at New Line with Blade director Stephen Norrington attached.

    Askarieh, who is a producer of the Hitman action films, has been developing the property of late and brought it to Bolt and Constantin, with whom he recently signed a first-look deal.

    Constantin's Robert Kulzer will produce along with Bolt and Askarieh. Constantin's Martin Moszkowicz will executive produce. Creators Campbell and Hartnell will also executive produce.

    Female empowerment will be one of the buzzwords. "Danger Girl is the perfect opportunity to create a team of grounded, relatable and dangerous young female characters but with humor and spectacular action," said Bolt.

    J. Scott Campbell was always one of my favorite comic artists. I think I still have #s 1-15 of DG.

    Still don't think it's gonna make for a great movie, though. I'm just glad other comic studios are trying something.
