Jul 16, 2015


Genies: Add Aladdin to the long list of animated films that Disney plans to develop into live-action movies. The 1992 release came early in the resurgence of Disney animation, and much of its success can be credited to Robin Williams' hilarious voice performance as Genie. The new version will be a prequel titled Genies, and will focus on the world of the magically-powered creatures. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Freddy vs. Jason, Baywatch) have been tapped to write the script. [Heat Vision]


Victor Frankenstein

Victor Frankenstein: New photos from the upcoming Victor Frankenstein reveal James McAvoy as Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe as Igor. In this new version, the story will be told from Igor's perspective and dig into his origins before he meets medical student Victor, later becoming his friend and assistant. The movie will open in theaters on November 25. [Dread Central]

Hugh Jackman / Johnny Depp

Collateral Beauty: Scheduling issues have caused Hugh Jackman to drop out of the starring role in Collateral Beauty, and now the producers have their eye on Johnny Depp to replace him. Rooney Mara and Jason Segel remain attached to the project, written by Allan Loeb (Rock of Ages) and to be directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl). The story revolves around an advertising executive who falls into a deep depression after a personal tragedy. [Deadline]


Hugh Jackman

Pan Trailer: Hugh Jackman looks quite a bit different as the nasty Blackbeard in Pan, which will tell the story of an orphan (Levi Miller) in Neverland on his journey toward becoming the heroic Peter Pan. A spectacular new trailer paints the movie as a grand adventure. Rooney Mara, Garrett Hedlund, Amanda Seyfried, and Cara Delevingne also star; look for it in theaters on October 9. [Warner Bros.]
