THE NEW SLAYER MAKES FIRST APPEARANCE IN 'BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER' #1110/18/19 @ 6:43 pm EST
According to Variety
, Robert Zemeckis is in early talks to direct Disney’s live-action Pinocchio
Andrew Miano and Chris Weitz will produce through their company Depth of Field with Weitz penning the script.
Though a deal hasn’t closed yet, Zemeckis has been eyeing the project since this summer. He was still, however, working on his current pic The Witches
for Warner Bros. and didn’t want to commit to a new film until The Witches
made more progress in production. With that film in post-production now, Zemeckis began turning his sights on his next project, with Pinocchio
high on his list.
The original animated movie tells the tale about a living puppet who, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, must prove himself worthy to become a real boy.
Disney continues to see its live-action adaptation strategy as a major part of its pipeline, with this year’s Aladdin
and The Lion King
both crossing the billion dollar milestone this year.

VarietySUPERMAN WILL REVEAL HE’S CLARK KENT IN THE COMICS THIS DECEMBER10/18/19 @ 6:37 pm EST
reports that Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
is heading for an opening weekend of about $35 million at 3,790 North American locations — significantly below forecasts, early estimates showed on Friday.
The fantasy sequel should still win the domestic weekend box office handily, denying Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker
a third consecutive victory. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
will also top the launch of another sequel, Sony’s Zombieland: Double Tap
, which is coming in above expectations at about $28 million in a battle for second with Joker
Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
had been forecast to launch around $45 million this weekend. The original Maleficent
debuted with $69 million at the domestic box office in 2014 and went on to become a box office smash, earning more than $750 million globally from a $180 million budget.

'VENOM 2': NAOMIE HARRIS EYED TO PLAY VILLAIN SHRIEK OPPOSITE TOM HARDY (EXCLUSIVE)10/18/19 @ 6:27 pm EST
This December, Superman will reveal to the world that he and mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent are one and the same. And, according to writer Brian Michael Bendis, it’s not a trick, a twist, a joke, or an alternate universe — it’ll be the new status quo of Superman.
It won’t be the first time Superman’s secret identity has been public knowledge. A 2015 story arc had Lois Lane out him as Clark Kent on the front page of the Daily Planet, but it didn’t last particularly long.
And this isn’t the first time Bendis has handled a big identity reveal with long-lasting consequences, either. Under his pen, Daredevil lost his secret identity for years, only reinstating it after some global mind-control shenanigans. And it seems like he means this one to also have wide-ranging ramifications.
Revealing that Clark Kent and Lois Lane, internationally recognized reporters for their work on Superman, are, in fact, Superman and Superman’s wife — would add some real professional headaches to Superman’s already full plate. But, it seems like Bendis — and the other writers currently working on Superman-adjacent books — are well aware of the ramifications and eager to explore them. (via Polygon
The big change will happen in Superman
#18, out on Dec. 11, and also tie in to December’s issue of Lois Lane
#7, out on Dec. 1.

Variety'BLESS THE HARTS' ANIMATED COMEDY RENEWED FOR SEASON 2 BY FOX10/18/19 @ 6:23 pm EST
reports that Naomie Harris is in talks to play Spider-Man villain Shriek in Sony’s Venom 2
, with Tom Hardy returning as the titular anti-hero.
Andy Serkis is on board to direct, and Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson are also reprising their roles.
The original film was a huge hit for the studio when it premiered in 2018, grossing $213 million at the domestic box office and a massive $855 million worldwide. It followed Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist who becomes host to the alien entity known as Venom.
Shriek is Carnage’s romantic interest in the comics so she’s bound to team with Harrelson in this movie to face off against Hardy’s Venom.
Sony had no comment on the casting negotiations.

Deadline'JURASSIC WORLD 3' CASTS DEWANDA WISE IN LEADING ROLE10/18/19 @ 6:19 pm EST
reports that Fox has ordered a second season of its new half-hour animated comedy series Bless the Harts
for premiere during the 2020-21 season. It marks the second freshman Fox series to get a pickup, following breakout new drama Prodigal Son,
which got a full-season order with nine additional episodes.
Because of the nature of animated series, which need a long lead time, a back order for Bless the Harts
was not an option, leaving renewal as the only pickup scenario.Bless the Harts
has not been a breakout and has done so-so retaining its The Simpsons
lead-in. That is not unusual for animated comedy series; Fox’s Bob’s Burgers
got off to an inauspicious start before becoming an Emmy-winning anchor of the network’s Sunday lineup. Fox brass are said to believe creatively in Bless the Harts,
the first of a wave of new animated series ordered under Entertainment President Michael Thorn’s push in the area.
