Marvel's The Punisher Season 1 Review

Johnny Depp Has Signed On To Star In Labyrinth

The Toronto Film Festival gets underway tomorrow but the first pre-sale deals are already having their 'i's dotted and 't's crossed. One such, according to Screen Daily’s sources, has Johnny Depp signing up for true-life crime story Labyrinth.

Nothing whatever to do with the Goblin King, this Labyrinth is the story of LAPD officer Russell Poole. The LA ‘tec was assigned to the case of a pair of high-profile assassinations – Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls – in the late '90s, but ended up stumbling upon a whole different kind of criminal activity. Poole’s shoe-rubber-burning relentlessness turned up corruption on a serious scale within the LAPD.

Johnny Depp has got deep into character work in recent years, often burying himself under layers of prosthetics and flamboyant costumes, but this one could see him stripping back to the brass tacks. It’s got The Infiltrator’s Brad Furman returning to the crime thriller genre as director.

Confusingly, there’s also a remake of Jim Henson’s cult kids classic in the development churn at the moment. Yes, we’re a script mix-up from Depp playing Jareth (or potentially one, even bigger script mix-up from playing Jennifer Connelly’s character).

This one has a potential start date of early 2017, with Good Films, the production house behind The Infiltrator and Good, pulling it together.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
