Movie News: Hey Marvel, Bryan Cranston Wants to Be Your Next Villain; Vin Diesel Announces 'XXX 3' Director

Oct 12, 2015

Bryan Cranston: Actor Bryan Cranston (above in Trumbo, opening November 6) proved his bones by portraying good guy turned evil drug lord Walter White on TV's Breaking Bad, and is now ready to return to the dark side. "I'd like to do some big superhero villain in some Marvel classic," he says. As to which character he might play, he is open to suggestions: "Create one from scratch… I don't know what I would do but it would be nasty." [Metro]

 

XXX 3: Vin Diesel says that D.J. Caruso (I Am Number Four) will direct XXX 3, the next installment in an action-thriller series that began with Diesel starring as an extreme sports expert turned secret agent in the 2002 original (above). Diesel teased that the sequel might go into production before Fast and Furious 8, which is already scheduled for release on April 14, 2017, but as of yet there is no official confirmation that XXX 3 has received a green light for production to begin.

Cruella: Kelly Marcel, who adapted Fifty Shades of Grey for the big screen, will next bring life to a somewhat different type of heroine: Cruella de Vil. Known as the villainess in Disney's animated classic 101 Dalmatians, Cruella will be getting her own, self-titled, live-action movie; Marcel will be working with Steve Zissis (Togetherness) on a new version of the screenplay. Glenn Close previously played the character in two live-action movies, 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians. [The Hollywood Reporter]

 

Love the Coopers Trailer: John Goodman and Diane Keaton star as a married couple hosting their extended family for the holidays in a new trailer for Love the Coopers. Olivia Wilde, Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried, Anthony Mackie, Alan Arkin, and Marisa Tomei also star; the movie opens in theaters on November 13. [Movieclips]
