Coronavirus: Upcoming Movie Titles That Have Been Delayed

Published

on

As “Social Distancing” is rapidly becoming the new norm. Streaming services have ramped up their campaign more than ever for watching cinema in the comfort of your own home. On the other hand, theater has taken a hit. Of all the places in the world to be, sitting in a jam packed theater full of movie goers, isn’t the safest place. Many believe, this will be a catalyst for a movement that was inevitable all along. Which is, sending major blockbuster films, straight to streaming. Some companies have already taken the opportunity to do so, as Blumhouse recently moved ‘The Invisible Man‘ to streaming with a $20 household price tag.

As of right now, many of the films scheduled for release and others that were in the process of filming, have now been either delayed or halted indefinitely. Notably, ‘The Batman,’ and ‘Matrix 4’ have both halted production.

Matt Damon and Casey Affleck to Reunite for Heist Film, ‘The Instigators’ at Apple

Published

on

After previously collaborating in the Ocean’s trilogy and Good Will Hunting, Matt Damon (The Martian, The Departed) and Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea, Gone Baby Gone) are set to lead another heist film for Apple titled The Instigators. According to an exclusive from Deadline, the two actors will star in the film as two thieves who must go on the run with one of their therapists after a bank robbery gone wrong. It truly sounds like a mixture of the heist elements of the Ocean’s films with some therapeutic elements reminiscent of Good Will Hunting along the way whilst on the run.

While there are no casting details on who will be the therapist this time around, we can confirm that Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) will direct the film. The package was highly coveted by multiple streamers with Apple putting up the cash to make the deal happen and bring in even more star power to their Apple Original Films banner. It’s a good relationship to get started as Damon and Casey’s big brother, Ben Affleck recently announced their new production banner, Artists Equity with The Instigators being announced as one of their first projects in development. Chuck MacLean, who created the recently cancelled Boston-set cop drama, City on a Hill, will write the script.

 Damon has always been very active in the film industry, but his upcoming slate is one that would excite almost any movie fan. First, Damon will appear in the Christopher Nolan atomic bomber biopic, Oppenheimer, where Peaky Blinders star, Cillian Murphy plays the titular J. Robert Oppenheimer. Damon is just one of the stars of the remarkable ensemble that has been assembled by Nolan which also includes Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Emily Blunt, Gary Oldman, Casey Affleck and Rami Malek, just to name a few. Additionally, the first project announced for the Artists Equity production company, is Air Jordan, a film in which Ben Affleck and Damon play the shoe salesmen who helped lure Michael Jordan to Nike. The latter will be the first feature directed by Affleck since his gangster flick, Live by Night back in 2016.

On the other hand, Casey Affleck, who won the Academy Award for Lead Actor for his performance in Manchester by the Sea has mostly floated under the radar since then. The younger Affleck does have a two-hander music biopic, Dreamin’ Wild in the can co-starring with Zooey Deschanel that is awaiting wide release. He’s also set to lead the next Joe Wright film, Stoner and star alongside Laurence Fishburne in the sci-fi film, Slingshot.

Reese Witherspoon and Alexander Payne to Reunite on ‘Election’ Sequel, ‘Tracy Flick Can’t Win’ for Paramount+

Published

on

Election was a film that not only left a cultural footprint on indie filmmaking, but it also put Alexander Payne (The Descendants, Nebraska) on the map and was the first major lead role for Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde, Wild). Now, her iconic and unforgettable character, Tracy Flick is returning to screens but this time for a streaming service. 

According to multiple outlets, Witherspoon will return as the high achieving go-getter in the sequel film, Tracy Flick Can’t Win based on the 2022 novel of the same name for Paramount+. The film will see Payne return to direct with a story that places the titular character as a diligent assistant principal of a public high school in suburban New Jersey still struggling to find her way to the upper echelons of academia and the public school system while still embodying her type-A self. Election was a high school-set film released in 1999 that earned an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay catapulting Witherspoon to stardom. 

Witherspoon will produce the film under her flourishing Hello, Sunshine banner. She will next appear in the third season of the AppleTV+ series, The Morning Show alongside Jennifer Aniston as well as the romantic comedy, Your Place or Mine with Ashton Kutcher. 

Payne is currently filming The Holdovers starring Paul Giamatti which plays as a Breakfast Club-esque movie set during the holidays. The Holdovers marks another reuniting for Payne as he re-teams with Giamatti who starred in his film, Sideways.

Taron Egerton to Re-Team with ‘Black Bird’ Collaborators for AppleTV+ Series, ‘Firebug’ based on Famous Arsonist

Published

on

Big day for news at Apple as it appears that Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Rocketman) will re-team with his Black Bird team returning to AppleTV+ for a new crime series, Firebug according to an exclusive from Deadline.

Firebug will bring Egerton back into the fold as Dennis Lehane (Black Bird, The Outsider) will reunite to create this series in which the actor will star as John Leonard Orr. Orr was an infamous investigator of arson and former firefighter, and the series will see Egerton following two serial arsonists trying to take down the fiery culprits. Lehane has written many novels based on some of the more famous and well-renowned drama features of modern times such as Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island. Egerton will be joined by another detective who has yet to be cast in the chase for the two arsonists committing the crimes. 

Black Bird just garnered two Critics Choice Awards nominations for Paul Walter Hauser and the late Ray Liotta, who portrayed Egerton’s father in the series. Within the series also based on true events, Egerton plays Jimmy Keene who goes to jail for drug possession before cutting a deal with the FBI to befriend a suspected serial killer (played by Hauser). Additionally, Egerton will also star in the upcoming feature film, Tetris: The Movie for Apple and appear in the Netflix film, Carry On alongside Jason Bateman in 2023.
