Movie News: Deadpool Movie Is Finally on Its Way; Tim Burton's 'Big Eyes' Gets a Trailer

Sep 19, 2014

Deadpool: Five years after making his movie debut in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the merc with a mouth has finally had a solo spin-off green-lit at Fox. Deadpool will be released just in time for Valentine's Day on February 12, 2016. It's expected that Ryan Reynolds will reprise the role, even though the character nearly always wears a mask in the comics and even though the last incarnation of alter ego Wade Wilson in the Wolverine movie was portrayed by Scott Adkins. Tim Miller, an Oscar nominee for producing the 2004 short Gopher Broke, is making his feature directorial debut with the spin-off. [THR]


Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur: Charlie Hunnam now has his queen in the next movie set in Camelot, which Guy Ritchie is directing. Spanish actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey, of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and more recently I Origins, will play the Guinevere to Hunnam's Arthur. Now we just need a Lancelot for things to get all stirred up. [Deadline]


In the Deep: Sony won a heated bidding war for a movie that sounds awfully familiar. Not just because In the Deep is actually described as being "127 Hours meets Jaws, with a touch of Gravity," but because that just sounds like the 2003 Sundance sensation Open Water, which was based on a true story. The main difference seems to be that this movie will only involve one stranded person with a shark closing in, rather than two. [Deadline]


Big Eyes trailer: The first trailer for Big Eyes is out, and while it doesn't immediately look like a Tim Burton movie, it does look like an Oscar movie, featuring stand-out performances from both Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. Burton fans do get a weird-enough moment near the end where a woman has fantastically big eyes, just like those in Margaret Keane's paintings.  [Yahoo!]
