Channing Tatum

Gambit: Channing Tatum was confirmed more than a year ago to be starring in the titular role in Marvel's Gambit, but now an unconfirmed report claims that the actor's deal is "in jeopardy of falling apart and he is planning to exit" the project. Tatum has talked about his affection for the character, a Southern gambler and ladies' man, several times in the past, and it's not clear why he may be moving on. Rupert Wyatt is set to direct the movie, which is currently scheduled for release on October 7, 2016. [The Wrap]


Shaft (2000)

Shaft: Private eye John Shaft first roared to life on the big screen in 1971, winning great popular success and an Academy Award (Best Original Song), and inspiring two sequels, as well as a remake in 2000, with Samuel L. Jackson taking over the role originally played by Richard Roundtree (above). Now another Shaft remake is on its way, this time with TV sitcom veterans Kenya Barris (Black-ish) and Alex Barnow (The Goldbergs) hired to write the script. Reportedly, the new version "will have a comedic tone but will retain its action roots." [Heat Vision]


Tommy Lee Jones

Bourne: Tommy Lee Jones, who won an Academy Award for tracking down The Fugitive in 1993, will join Matt Damon in the next installment of the Bourne spy thriller series, which is not yet titled. Jones is said to be playing a "superior officer at the CIA." Alicia Vikander and Julia Stiles have also been confirmed in the cast; Paul Greengrass will direct. The movie is slated for release on July 29, 2016. [Variety]


13 Hours

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi Trailer: Michael Bay heads to Libya to tell the true story of a night in 2012 when everything went wrong. The first red-band (NSFW) trailer for 13 Hours:The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is, to put it simply, explosive. James Badge Dale and John Krasinskil lead the dramatic ensemble cast; the movie opens in theaters on January 15, 2016. [Movieclips]
