Warner Bros. and New Line must be feeling pretty good about director Andy Muschietti‘s big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It. Box office tracking predicts a blockbuster. The early buzz has been very positive. The trailers are just plain creepy. Since the movie only adapts one half of King’s massive novel, there’s plenty of room for a sequel. If everything goes right, it’s a no-brainer. While Muschietti recently signed on to make a live-action version of Robotech, he’s now made it clear that his first priority is the It sequel.

IT director Andy Muschetti has confirmed that he will make IT: Part 2 prior to Robotech. Next week, one of the most anticipated movies of the fall arrives, when Stephen King’s IT gets theatrically adapted for the first time. Early critical reactions have been very positive, advance fan sentiment is generally through the roof, and box office projections suggest literally record-breaking opening weekend totals.

‘The Crow Reborn’ Finds A New Nest At Sony Pictures After being buried under the weight of Relativity Media’ bankruptcy proceedings and a number of creative incarnations, The Crow Reborn has risen like a phoenix from the ashes and found a new home at Sony Pictures. While this iteration will take some nods from the original 1994 movie that starred Brandon Lee and directed by Alex Proyas, The Crow Reborn will reboot the franchise and stay faithful to O’Barr’s graphic novel. Original producer Edward R. Pressman will now produce with Samuel Hadida’s Davis Films and Kevin Misher‘s Misher Films.

Chris Pratt’s ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ Is Really Getting Made NBC It’s been so long since we’ve heard an update about Cowboy Ninja Viking that we assumed Chris Pratt dropped out. It turns out the allure of playing a special agent not named Burt Macklin was too great. Pratt is still on to play the titular Cowboy/Ninja/Viking, and Universal is so sure they’re really doing this weird thing that they’ve planted their flag in a release date: June 28th, 2019. That’s one day after Transformers 7 opens, one week after Toy Story 4 opens, and one week before the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel opens.

James Gunn Explains Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack Order Director James Gunn has revealed the reason why the Awesome Mixtapes have a different song order to how they were used in their respective Guardians of the Galaxy movies.  Following the massive commercial and critical success of the first film from Marvel’s cosmic sub-franchise in 2014, the team of ragtag misfits of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot were back again this year for another round of universe-saving in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Director Eli Roth’s Death Wish Remake Starring Bruce Willis Gets A Trailer If one were to ask me what film I’d want to see a remake of, I wouldn’t have ever picked Death Wish. The original Charles Bronson film was fun enough, but in a world where we have characters like The Punisher and movies like Taken and John Wick, it really doesn’t do much to stand out in any meaningful way. Add to that the relatively low name recognition of Death Wish outside of film fans, and there really didn’t seem to be much reason to go back to the well on this one.However, I became a bit more interested when Eli Roth got involved.

John Wick Film Universe May Kickoff With Action Movie Ballerina Lionsgate is looking into establishing a John Wick universe by retooling their recently acquired action script, Ballerina. Keanu Reeves returned to the action genre in 2014 by starring in the film John Wick, based on a script by Derek Kolstad, in which he played an assassin who comes out of retirement to exact revenge on the people who stole his car and killed his dog.
