Hollywould: ‘Spider-Man,’ James Bond, and ‘Annabelle 3’
The film and television business moves at a mile a minute, so keeping up with the latest news can be a little daunting. Not to worry—we have your back. In Hollywould, we’ll round up the industry developments you need to know. Here’s what you may have missed:
Spider-Man: Far From Home
Star Tom Holland announced on Instagram that filming has wrapped and gave us our best look yet at his new costume:
Netflix and the BBC have tapped Sherlock creators, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, to create a miniseries adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Three 90-minute episodes have been ordered. Moffat and Gatiss told Variety:
“There have always been stories about great evil. What’s special about Dracula is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero.”
Put down the martini (shaken, naturally) and pick up the salt shaker because this one sounds suspicious: British tabloid The Sun claims that producer Barbara Broccoli is “preparing to offer the role” of James Bond to Game of Thrones alum, Richard Madden, after Daniel Craig bows out of the role.
The official Instagram account for HBO’s Watchmen has posted its first picture, which is presumably a new masked vigilante:
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return as Ed and Lorraine Warren for the third entry of the Annabelle series.
NBC plans a “female-led spinoff” of Grimm, headed up by Iron Fist writer Melissa Glenn, according to Deadline. The series “will feature returning fan favorites while also introducing new characters, new dangers and epic new mysteries.”
Big Trouble in Little China
John Carpenter told Cinema Blend that he’s not involved with the upcoming Big Trouble in Little China feature:
“They want a movie with Dwayne Johnson. That’s what they want. So they just picked that title. They don’t give a shit about me and my movie. That movie wasn’t a success.”
