Taika Waititi Offered Thor: Ragnarok

Taika Waititi , who co-wrote and co-directed the vampire spoof What We Do In the Shadows , is in negotiations to direct the third installment of Marvel’s Thor movies, titled Thor: Ragnarok . Chris Hemsworth is reprising his role of the Norse god of thunder. Waititi’s emergence as the choice caps off a round of intense meetings that took place over the last month. Ruben Fleischer, Rob Letterman and Rawson Marshall Thurber were the other directors that were finalists for the gig. Waititi is the latest head-scratcher from Marvel for their pick to direct a big-budget extravaganza, especially one steeped in the Norse mythology and an Apocalypse myth. He wrote and directed episodes of Flight of the Conchords and is a writer on Disney’s upcoming animated feature Moana, which will star Dwayne Johnson.

Jemaine Clement To Play Villain 'Men in Black 3'

Jemaine Clement To Play Villain 'Men in Black 3' “Flight of the Conchords” star Jemaine Clement is in final negotiations to play one of the villains in Columbia’s “Men in Black 3.” Will Smith recently signed his deal to return as the alien-chasing government agent, as did returning director Barry Sonnenfeld. Most of the action is taking place in 1969, with Josh Brolin playing a young Tommy Lee Jones, who will bookend the movie. Most of the new casting will be the villains, whose identities, look and super-abilities are being kept under lock and key. It is known that Clement is playing a villain named Boris, who is described as being charmy and creepy at the same time. (The name Yaz was used as a filler name, and since the script is still being polished, there is a chance the name may change again.) Please Leave A Comment- Source- THR

'Flight of the Conchords' Will Fly No More

'Flight of the Conchords' Will Fly No More After months of speculation, the quirky HBO comedy series' co-creators Bret McKenzie, Jemaine Clement and James Bobin broke the news on their Web site. "We've noticed the less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing that we won't be returning for a third season," they wrote. "We're very proud of the two seasons we made, and we like the way the show ended." Weaving story line and original songs, combined with the fact that the trio continues to reside in their native New Zealand, makes "Conchords" difficult to produce, prompting speculation over the past few months that McKenzie, Clement and Bobin would not return for a third season. The show's second season earned a best comedy series nomination and a best actor nom for Clement. Please Leave A Comment- Source- THR
