Movie News: Angelina Jolie Touted for 'Bride of Frankenstein'; Watch Christian Bale and Brad Pitt in 'The Big Short' Trailer

Nov 24, 2015

Bride of Frankenstein: Angelina Jolie Pitt is under consideration to star in a new version of Bride of Frankenstein. A rebooted version of James Whale's 1935 horror classic will be part of a new shared universe that is being mapped out by writer-producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan; the original featured the character of "the Bride" for only a few minutes of screen time, so major changes are evidently in store. Jolie Pitt is also being sought for a sequel to 2008 action movie Wanted. [THRImage: Everett

 

Alien 5: We heard recently that a proposed fifth installment in the Alien series had been placed on hold, pending the release of Ridley Scott's prequel Alien: Covenant in 2017 and any subsequent installments. In the meantime, Michael Biehn confirmed reports that the so-called Alien 5 would pretend that "Alien 3 and 4 never existed," and said the plan is for his character from Aliens (above) as well as young, orphaned Newt to return, this time as a 27-year-old woman, with a "passing of the torch" from Sigourney Weaver to a younger actress playing Newt.

Evel Knievel on Tour: William Monahan, who won an Academy Award for The Departed (above) will adapt Sheldon Saltman's book Evel Knievel on Tour for the big screen, and it's hoped that director Martin Scorsese will join the project. The book focused on the daredevil's attempt to jump Snake River Canyon via a steam-powered rocket in 1974. Terence Winter (The Wolf of Wall Street) is serving as one of the producers. [Deadline]

 

The Big Short Trailer: A new trailer for The Big Short dramatically showcases Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt as outsiders who decide to take on financial giants in the banking industry. The movie opens in theaters on December 11. [Movieclips]
