Drew Goddard Tapped For Spider-Man Relaunch

Sinister Six writer stays in Spidey’s web.

By Brandon Wolfe

Latino Review has published a report stating that Drew Goddard, director of the fantastic Cabin in the Woods, is expected to take the helm on the Marvel/Sony jointly-produced new Spider-Man solo film. Goddard was previously set to write and direct Sony’s likely-now-aborted Sinister Six film, so he already had his toe deep in the Spidey waters, making the most sense to lateral him over for this new franchise direction (that he’s close friends with Marvel guru Joss Whedon, having co-written Cabin with him and having cut his teeth of several of Whedon’s TV series, likely didn’t hurt).

It’s unclear if any of Goddard’s work on Sinister Six will be reappropriated for this new film, though Latino Review suggests that the first film (which will possibly be titled The Spectacular Spider-Man - since Amazing was already taken by those movies that weren't - and is said to be the first of a new trilogy) will involve the assemblage of the Six, so that seems quite likely. The article also confirms the previous speculation the film will not delve yet again into Spidey’s origin and that the producers hope to cast Peter Parker younger than the previous incarnations. Most intriguingly, it’s stated that a major part of the first film will involve Spider-Man grappling with Iron Man and auditioning for a spot on the Avengers roster.

Spidey's Goddard-powered new adventure is set for release July 27, 2017.

#EDWARDNORTON Teams Ups With @osklen To Sell Special Edition #BIRDMAN Jacket To Benefit @MaasaiWild

EDWARD NORTON TEAMS UP WITH FASHION HOUSE OSKLEN AND SOCIAL SHOPPING PLATFORM FANCY TO SELL SPECIAL EDITION OF HIS ‘BIRDMAN’ JACKET FOR THE MAASAI WILDERNESS CONSERVATION TRUST


Actor and philanthropist Edward Norton is teaming up with Oskar Metsavaht, creative director of Brazilian fashion brand Osklen and founder of Instututo E, a non profit organization,based in Rio de Janeiro, focused on sustainable projects and Joe Einhorn, creator of social shopping platform Fancy to sell a special limited edition of the jacket worn by his ‘Birdman’ character, Mike Shiner, called “The Shiner.” The jacket will be available exclusively via Fancy, and at Osklen stores in Miami and New Your City and all proceeds will go directly to benefit the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, www.MaasaiWilderness.org, an environmental protection and sustainable development project that Norton has been involved with for 12 years.

Notes Norton: “I met Oskar Metsavaht at a Rio Climate Conference. We are both environmental activists and we became friends right away. I loved his Osklen board shorts and hoodies, but my favorite piece was this great guerilla style jacket. Like something Che Guevara would have worn on a brisk day in Paris. I wore it to rehearsals and (‘Birdman’s’ director) Alejandro Iñárritu loved it and made it Mike Shiner’s uniform. He wanted one, Chivo, the film’s cinematographer wanted one, and so did many other friends so I approached Oskar with this idea.”

Osklen had stopped making the coat, but Metsavaht agreed to make a limited number of this new special edition called “The Shiner.” On creating the jacket, Oskar Metsavaht says: “Edward and I first connected over our shared passions for protecting the environment and surfing. Everyone at Osklen loved seeing our jacket on the classic character he created in one of the most audacious and original films in a long time. When Edward told us everyone wanted the coat, and proposed teaming up to turn that into something positive…we said ‘of course!’ Artistic passion and environmental sustainability are very much the spirit of Osklen, so this is a great fit.” Osklen will be donating the proceeds of the sales to Massai Wilderness CT though Instituto E.

Norton then turned to Joe Einhorn at Fancy who agreed to sell the jacket exclusively on his site so that all proceeds could be directed immediately to the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. Einhorn says: “Fancy is all about people sharing the things they lovewith others. When an artist like Edward has a great idea to share a really special collector’s item from a film that is already an instant classic, and to do it for a great cause…that’s a no-brainer. We love working with people like Edward and Oskar.”

Norton notes that “I love Fancy because I always find the most unique things on it. And I am thrilled that every dollar from the purchase of this special edition is being contributed by Osklen and Fancy to one of thegreatest environmental protection and sustainable development projects on the planet. So if you get this jacket for yourself or someone you love, you can have the dual pleasure of knowing that
A) there’s only a few of us that have it
B) every dollar you spent on it went to a project that is a showcase for how we’re going to meet the challenge of sustainability in the 21st Century

The jacket comes in army green, the version featured in the film, and in black, the version worn by Norton in his recent Malibu Magazine shoot and is embroidered on the inside with Norton’s signature. The piece is sized for both men and women, and can be purchased for $300 at http://fancy.to/edward.

    Arrow/Flash Spinoff News: Atom & Firestorm to Share a Show

    CW's superhero success is springing another baby.

    Story by Matt Cummings

    It's safe to say that CW's lineup (albeit small) of superhero television shows has been nothing short of an unqualified success. Arrow continues to deliver week after week, while The Flash has exploded in popularity, with quality bad guys, several as-yet-to-be-resolved story arcs, and excellent casting. Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin (Arrow and Flash, respectively) have even teamed up on each other's shows, which garnered some of CW's biggest ratings to date.

    Well, the network's number of superhero shows on is about to get bigger. Deadline is reporting that we'll soon see a show featuring casts from both shows in the first stand-alone team-up. The names: ATOM and F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. In fact, the CW and Arrow/The Flash co-creator Greg Berlanti are describing and it as “superhero team-up show.” The show will feature familiar names: Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (Flash villain Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), and Victor Garber (Flash‘s Dr. Martin Stein).

    Additionally, the series - which is in development - will feature three DC Comics characters who have never before appeared on a TV series. Those names haven't been released, but it's the other piece of news that might be the most surprising. The one other casting announcement was Caity Lotz, who played Sara/Black Canary in Arrow. That might come as a shock to some, as Sara was killed earlier in Season 3 by a drugged Thea. We're not sure what role she'll play, but it might offer clues as to something we've suspected all along and was proved in the mid-season finale of Arrow: the Lazarus Pit and other medicines can bring back the dead. Considering that most of this year's Arrow has been all about the team coming to terms with her death, perhaps we'll see her return in the spinoff as the same character?

    The other surprise was the conspicuous absence of Robbie Amell, who plays the other half of F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. and was recently split back into two by Star Labs' chief Harrison Wells/Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh). He's an important part of the equation, and it's unlikely CW would go ahead with the spinoff if there wasn't a guarantee that he would join. So, expect that announcement to arrive soon. There is also the possibility that Stein and Palmer will work together on the ATOM suit, perhaps removing the need for Amell to be around as a regular cast member.

    All of this is interesting news, but perhaps not entirely unexpected. The press release, combined with statements from CW President Mark Pedowitz and Guggenheim, linked most of this months ago, but the terms hadn't been released. Additionally, the possibility of Routh appearing in a spinoff series was bandied about in recent months as well, while the most recent Firestorm-focused episode of The Flash seemed to indicate the network was testing the waters.

    What's clear is this: the CW has expertly built up secondary characters into potentially interesting leads, leading many fans to desire a true team-up show, which is exactly what CW had planned all along. It's also clear that the network is in the driver's seat when it comes to this type of programming. Hopefully, CBS can learn from their sister company and come up with a great Supergirl series.

    One final piece of news: reportedly, CW is so confident with early results that they may be planning to order it direct to series, with a debut early in 2016.

    CBS Summer Programming Announcement

    CBS Says Stay Tuned

    Story by David Clark


    CBS tells network viewers this week to prepare for their summer-original programming schedule. The rotation of popular shows that go on winter-break can leave viewers desperate for something new and exciting to watch. As always the latest announcement is a welcome relief this time of year as the major networks prepare to roll out a new season of shows. The news from CBS will help fill that void and create anticipation for upcoming shows that are just around the corner.

    The lineup includes a couple well known shows in Under The Dome and Extant returning for additional seasons after strong showings last year. The ever popular Big Brother will return for a 17th season. Last but not least the press release announced that the Zoo, a new show based on a James Patterson novel, will join the CBS summer lineup.

    Under The Dome:
    Based on a Stephen King novel, Under The Dome follows a town that inexplicably finds itself trapped inside of a transparent dome. This season will follow the town as people begin to learn the purpose of the dome. Original cast members will be returning and a new story arc will follow guest star Marg Helgenberger as she joins the cast this season. The 2 hour season premiere is scheduled for Thursday June 25th 9pm-11pm (ET/PT). with additional shows airing at the show’s scheduled time on Thursdays from 10pm-11pm (ET/PT). CBS is counting on the popular show to start season 3 as strong as season 2 finished. Under The Dome lead in viewership through season 2 with 11.32m and lead in ratings for scripted programming in viewers ages 18-49 and 25-54.

    Extant:
    Returning for season 2, Extant is coming off a run whereby the show ranked #1 as the most watched new show during the summer of 2014 (8.65m). Starring the infamous Halle Berry the show will follow Molly Woods (Halle Berry) as she discovers humanity may be doomed because of her actions. Also starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan the show hopes to duplicate the success of season 1. Fans of the show can stay tuned for the premiere episode on Wednesday July 1, 10-11pm (ET/PT).

    Zoo:
    Given the success of recent pilots CBS is looking forward to season 1 of the Zoo. Based upon James Patterson’s #1 best selling novel, the show pits man versus nature in the guise of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening. However, unlike the movie, this show has potential. The show premise follows a young biologist played by James Wolk as he tries to uncover the reason behind a wave of animal attacks spanning the globe. The plot of the show grows even more intriguing as the animal attacks grow more violent, intelligent, and coordinated. The show pilot will premiere on Tuesday June 30th 9-10pm (ET/PT).

    Big Brother:
    Unless you have been living under a rock, Big Brother probably needs little in the way of introduction. One of the staple reality competitions on television Big Brother stands tall entering the 17th season amongst other popular shows like The Amazing Race and Survivor. The show sequesters a group of contestants away from contact with the outside world as they compete for a cash prize. The show which spans the majority of the summer follows a standard competition format whereby contestants are eliminated each week until a winner is selected. The two night premiere will air Wednesday June 24th and Thursday June 25th from 8pm-9pm (ET/PT).

    In Memoriam: Leonard Nimoy

    His work influenced millions of Science-Fiction fans.

    Story by Matt Cummings

    There's few actors that are tied so closely to just one character: Leonard Nimoy was one such phenomenon, forever linked to his role as Mr. Spock on television's Star Trek: The Original Series. Is there a gesture more remembered and used that Nimoy's "Live Long and Prosper?" Not likely. And how about that cool disposition that so many have tried (and frankly failed) to mimic? Nimoy's death on Friday at age 83 wasn't unexpected, as he had been sick for quite some time. But, the outpouring of support in the wake has been nothing but extraordinary.

    Everyone from Seth MacFarlane, Patrick Stewart, and even Author JK Rowling chimed in today to pay their respects. But when the President of the United States releases a statement saying, "I loved Spock," you know his effect was widespread. When Twitter explodes with Tweets from dozens of other celebrities who met, worked, or just plain idolized him, you knew his passing was something.

    But what you may not know is just how important CBS and Creator Gene Roddenberry thought of Nimoy. After Star Trek's pilot was shot in 1965 and deemed "too cerebral," it was decided that they would re-cast and reshoot. Only Nimoy was brought back in the same role (with Majel Barrett coming back to play Nurse Chapel). That's called Having Your Back.

    And yet, Nimoy's life was more than Spock. He directed two Star Trek films (III and IV), as well as the hugely successful Three Men and a Baby. But he was also a painter, singer, and he acted in tons of other shows and movies, including Mission: Impossible, even appearing with Shatner in an episode of TJ Hooker, and against him in the pre-Trek The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    For me, it was all about the way Spock dealt with his half-Human/Vulcan warring inside. It became the basis for so many great scenes, including Bread and Circuses, Mirror Mirror, and Journey to Babel. Nimoy made those epic battles so screen-worthy, as if he truly inhabited the character. It was that cool delivery opposite Shatner, and the way the writers pitted Spock against McCoy in philosophical discussions that made the series so timely.

    The rebooted Trek movies probably feature the best Spock and Vulcan in Zachary Quinto; he gets it about as close as possible, and if the reboots continue it will be rewarding to see if he can get closer to Spock. But Nimoy will always be Spock, and it seems like he was ok with that, releasing his second book "I Am Spock" in 1995 and continuing to tour conventions, speaking about his life and times as the iconic Enterprise science officer, and even appearing as Spock Prime in those same reboots.

    Leonardo da Vinci once commented on death the best, saying "As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life-well spent brings happy death." How true that was for Nimoy.

    Beam me up.

    NEW #BRUCELEE BIOPIC ANNOUNCED

    BRUCE LEE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES BIOPIC OF THE ICONIC ACTION HERO AND MARTIAL ARTIST.

    Daughter Shannon Lee Teams with Lawrence Grey and Janet Yang to Produce New Feature Film

     Shannon Lee, daughter of legendary martial artist Bruce Lee, announced today that his legacy will be brought to the screen in a new feature film, the first to be made with his family’s full involvement in the production. Lee’s company Bruce Lee Entertainment has partnered with Lawrence Grey and Janet Yang to produce a definitive biopic of the iconic Hollywood and Chinese star.

    “There have been projects out there involving my father, but they’ve lacked a complete understanding of his philosophies and artistry. They haven’t captured the essence of his beliefs in martial arts or storytelling. The only way to get audiences to understand the depth and uniqueness of my father is to generate our own material and find amazing, like-minded partners to work with,” said Lee.

    Bruce Lee’s classic films shattered records with each successive release in the early ‘70s, and his legacy remains unparalleled to this day. With tens of millions of fans following his rise, Bruce Lee’s untimely death at age 32 at the height of his fame and success shocked audiences worldwide. The unprecedented feature on the icon, who was one of the most compelling entertainment personalities to ever grace the silver screen, will be produced by Shannon Lee with Lawrence Grey (Last Vegas, Hope Springs, and the upcoming Section Six) and Ben Everard of Grey Matter Productions, as well as Janet Yang (The Joy Luck Club, People vs. Larry Flynt, Documented).

    “Many don’t know that Bruce Lee was also a prolific writer and a creator of his own unique art and philosophy. That’s what we want to show – not just his kick-ass physicality, but the depth of his character and beliefs,” said Lee.

    “I have long been inspired by Bruce Lee and wanted to partner with Shannon in order to really delve into the depth of the icon in a way that has never before been seen on the screen,” said Grey. “It is really a dream project and the perfect partnership.”

    Bruce Lee Entertainment officially opened its doors in 2014 to create compelling and authentic productions around the action hero and martial artist. In addition to this biopic, Bruce Lee Entertainment has a number of film and television projects in development, including a television series based on an original idea and materials by Bruce Lee with director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) as well as a reality-based show to launch in China with Keanu Reeves and Stephen Hamel of Company Films (John Wick). They are also working on a series of novels based on Bruce Lee writings along with a comic book series. Bruce Lee Entertainment already has one success with the remarkably popular mobile game, Bruce Lee: Enter the Game, created by its subsidiary Bruce Lee Interactive with Canadian developer, Hibernum Creations. The game saw over 5 million downloads in its first four weeks.

    Janet Yang has been brought on to Bruce Lee Entertainment to help guide production as well as consult on the China market where interest in Bruce Lee remains extraordinarily high.

    “It is a tremendous privilege to be working with Shannon on these exciting ventures about her father. In this age of an increasingly globalized culture, I can’t think of a more talented and innovative individual who embodies the best of East and West, and who can inspire future generations,” said Yang.

    Bruce Lee Entertainment is represented at UTA and is a subsidiary of Bruce Lee Enterprises, the exclusive owner of all commercial merchandising, allied rights, and marks relating to the use of Bruce Lee’s name, image, and attributes worldwide.
