Justice League

Justice League: Reportedly, Warner Bros. wants Chris Terrio, who won an Oscar for Argo and recently completed script work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, to write the screenplay for Justice League. Terrio was brought on to Batman v Superman after David S. Goyer (Batman, Man of Steel) became "too busy" with other projects to do another rewrite, and now Warner Bros. wantsTerrio to get its next important superhero team-up off to a good start.

George Clooney / Jodie Foster

Money Monster: TriStar Pictures is "nearing a deal" to pick up Jodie Foster's Money Monster, starring George Clooney. The studio would finance the picture -- a $30 million deal in itself -- and also distribute it. Jodie Foster is directing; Clooney is set to star as a TV personality who is kidnapped, live and on the air, by a viewer who blames him for bad financial tips. The project will film early next year, after Clooney completes work on the Coen brothers' Hail, Caesar! [The Wrap]

 

Grasshopper Jungle

Grasshopper Jungle: We just heard that Edgar Wright will next be directing Baby Driver, and now comes word that he's set another project as well. Grasshopper Jungle is based on a young-adult novel by Andrew Smith, published earlier this year, that wonders what will happen when six-foot-tall praying mantises are unleashed upon mankind. Scott Rosenberg (High Fidelity) is writing the screenplay; Wright will tackle this one after Baby Driver. [Variety]

 

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? Trailer: We first heard about Jon Schnepp's documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? last year, and now the film is nearing completion. It explores a famed (and never produced) version of Superman, featuring a screenplay by Kevin Smith, and includes interviews with Smith, director Tim Burton and many more. A new trailer has now been released. [Schnepp Zone]
