Jun 27, 2016

Independence Day: Resurgence

Moonfall: Roland Emmerich (Independence Day: Resurgence, above) will direct Moonfall, a sci-fi movie that will follow "an unlikely band of misfits who must unite to save humanity when the moon falls out of orbit and hurtles towards earth." It's based on an original script by Emmerich, Harold Kloser (2012) and Spencer Cohen. Reportedly, the project will head into production as soon as possible. [Deadline]

 

Attack the Block

John Boyega: Before he broke out with his performance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, John Boyega starred in Attack the Block (above), a rollicking comedy about an alien invasion in a tough British neighborhood. Joe Cornish wrote and directed the movie and now Boyega has hinted that the two may be working together again. Via social media, he stated: "Saw Joe Cornish the other day. Yes. We are brainstorming."

Shawn Levy

Starman: Shawn Levy (The Internship), who is attached to direct a remake of John Carpenter's sci-fi adventure Starman (1984), says the new film "is halfway through being written. It is … cool and very much the story of the original but leans into the technology and the scientific awareness that we have now, which is radically different than what we had when John Carpenter made the original film. … It’s likely going to be a younger cast than the Jeff Bridges version.” [Den of Geek]

 

Lights Out

Lights Out Trailer: A new trailer for Lights Out establishes the relationship between a young woman (Teresa Palmer), her younger brother and their mother (Maria Bello), just as an evil presence appears in all their lives. The horror thriller will open in theaters on July 22. [Movieclips]
