9 to 5

9 to 5: Patricia Resnick, who cowrote the comedy classic 9 to 5 (above), is in early talks with Fox to team with a younger writer to craft a new version that will "make the concept relevant" to a young audience. Rashida Jones is reportedly at the top of the wish list. The new premise is that three young women turn to the original stars (Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton) for help in dealing with sexism in the workplace. [Deadline]



Black Hole: Rick Famuyiwa (Dope, above) will write and direct a big-screen adaptation of Charles Burns' classic comic book series Black Hole. Published over a ten-year period and collected in a graphic novel in 2005, the poignant 12-issue series examines the aftermath of a sexually transmitted disease that causes mutations in teenangers. It's set in the Pacific Northwest during the 1970s. [THR]



Gemini Man: Wearing protective covering, Will Smith (above in Bright) shares his experience of filming Ang Lee's Gemini Man in a new video (below), shot on location as he 'fights wildlife.' The action-thriller follows an assassin (Smith) who is pursued by a younger version of himself. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong and Clive Owen also star; the film is scheduled for theatrical release on October 4, 2019. [Instagram via Collider]



Juggernaut Trailer: In the first trailer for Juggernaut, an outlaw returns to his small hometown, determined to take vengeance for the death of his mother, despite reports claiming she committed suicide. Amanda Crew, Jack Kesy and Stephen McHattie star; the crime drama will be released later this year. [Movieclips]
