A Quiet Place 2
Per The Wrap, Brian Tyree Henry is currently in talks for a role alongside Emily Blunt for the sequel to A Quiet Place.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Pattinson’s turn as Batman sees the character “around 30 years old” and “still trying to find his footing on his way to becoming the genius detective.” If that sounds too familiar, THR also points out that the story “is neither another rehashing of his origin nor the tale of a seasoned crimefighter ruling Gotham City.”
The Suicide Squad/Supergirl
Meanwhile, a Forbes article on Pattinson’s turn under the cowl claims that Idris Elba may play Bronze Tiger, who is a supervillain and martial artist, in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. In the same piece, it’s alleged that the in development Supergirl movie is “expected to start production in the first quarter of 2020.”
On The Game Maker’s Notebook podcast, Kiki Wolfkill from 343 Industries compared the upcoming Halo series to Game of Thrones sans incest:
“We talk about Game of Thrones a lot in terms of scope and scale and complexity of relationships. A lot of the background of Halo is this sort of political drama. It’s something that [is touched on] really lightly in the games and you see more of in some of the other mediums. Some of that [Game of Thrones-style] complexity is interesting. No incest planned at all for this show.”
Two Sentence Horror Stories
The CW ordered eight half-hour episodes of Two Sentence Horror Stories, which is the online anthology from Vera Miao, according to Deadline. The series, inspired by the online trend of boiling a scare down to two lines, is due August 8th.
Jurassic World 3
At the premiere of Rocketman, Bryce Dallas Howard coyly “confirmed” that the original Jurassic Park cast will (maybe) appear in the next Jurassic World.

Season 1 of The Witcher has finally come to an end. And although I'm pulling a face here it has been an incredible journey! The cast and crew worked tirelessly throughout, everyone pitched in and brought their A game to set and I couldn't be more proud of you all. Speaking of my immediate team. Jacqui, Ailbhe and Leah are consummate professionals who worked extraordinary hours to bring the Witcher to life, they were non stop improving adjusting and evolving Geralt throughout. Thank you ladies for making this journey a good one. All of those 3 am wake ups were worth it! #GeraltofRivia #TheWitcher #Season1
