Movie News: Schwarzenegger in 'Sabotage' (First Pic); Will 'Sandman' Finally Fly?; Two New 'Muppets Most Wanted' Trailers

Nov 21, 2013


Sabotage: The jury's still out on Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to action-movie heroics, but we have to admit, he looks pretty convincing as a DEA agent in the first image from Sabotage, due out in April 2014. Joe Manganiello and Mireille Enos also star; David Ayer (End of Watch) directed. [USA Today]


The Sandman: Will the dark fantasy world of The Sandman finally come to life on the big screen? Neil Gaiman's comic book series ran from 1989 to 1996, and a movie version has been kicked around since the 1990s, but now it's been reported that David S. Goyer (Batman vs. Superman) has pitched a new take to Warner Bros. and the studio is "very receptive." Joseph Gordon-Levitt is supposedly involved as well, possibly as the lead character.

The Stand: First published in 1978, Stephen King's lengthy postapocalyptic novel The Stand has defied multiple attempts to turn it into a feature film, and now it's lost another director. Scott Cooper (the upcoming Out of the Furnace), who came on board to write a new draft of the screenplay and direct after Ben Affleck walked away from the project last summer, has exited as well, with "creative differences" cited. Cooper said recently he had written a "searingly realistic" draft and acknowledged that it might be too expensive for what the studio had in mind. [The Wrap/MTV]

Muppets Most Wanted Trailers: Two delightful new trailers for Muppets Most Wanted raise expectations for when Kermit, Miss Piggy and their friends return to the big screen next spring. Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell are among the human actors who will interact with the beloved characters in a European spy adventure. One trailer is from the U.K. and the other is from Australia; they're very similar, but each offers slightly different footage. [Bleeding Cool]
