Following a stellar response from critics and fans alike and a hefty box office figure of $745,570,770 million, 20th Century Fox and the filmmakers behind ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ are hard at work on the film’s follow-up, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ According to a new report, Bryan Singer will return to shoot ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ in Montreal, Canada, next April. Set construction is said start this December, and they are apparently utilizing the 27-acre studio facility Mel’s Cité du Cinema – where ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ was also shot. “Days of Future Past” generated an estimated $100-million for the Montreal economy.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will focus primarily on the returning cast members from ’X-Men: First Class,’ which includes Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, and Nicholas Hoult’s Beast, in addition to some younger versions of other mutants like the previously-teased Gambit and Nightcrawler (although they’re both unconfirmed at this point). Gambit’s only big-screen appearance to date was in ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ where he was played by Taylor Kitsch. Nightcrawler was played by Alan Cumming in ‘X2.’ It looks as if Gambit will be played by Channing Tatum in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’

Starring Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Jacob Latimore and Ki Hong Lee, ‘The Maze Runner’ is set to hit cinemas on October 10th in the UK and on September 19th in the US.
Douglas Booth Joins The Likes Of Lily James, Sam Riley & Jack Huston In ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’
Last month it was first reported that the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ is finally happening. The project has been in development for a number of years, with David O. Russell originally eyed to direct, Natalie Portman starring and Lionsgate distributing. However, the script took too long to develop the proper tone, leading to Russell and Portman exiting because of scheduling conflicts. After those two left, the project went through a revolving door of directors including Mike White and Craig Gillespie, while actresses such as Scarlett Johansson, Mia Wasikowska, Lily Collins, Emma Stone and Anne Hathaway were all linked to star.
The revamped production, which mixes the 1813 Jane Austen classic ‘Pride And Prejudice’ with a legion of bloodthirsty undead, will begin production in September with a cast that includes Lily James (Cinderella, Downton Abbey) as Elizabeth Bennett, Jack Huston (Kill Your Darlings, Broadwalk Empire) as Mr. Wickham, Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows, In Time) as one of the other four Bennett sisters, and Sam Riley (Maleficent, On The Road) as Mr. Darcy. Deadline today bring word that Douglas Booth is joining the cast as Bingley. L, the good-natured and wealthy pal of Mr. Darcy. Booth was recently onscreen in Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’ and will next be seen in ‘The Riot Club’ (based on Laura Wade’s 2010 play ‘Posh’) and the Wachowskis’ ‘Jupiter Ascending.’
Fox Searchlight has unveiled this latest behind-the-scenes featurette for Michael R. Roskam’s (Bullhead) much-anticipated ‘The Drop,’ which is set for a September 19th release date in the US and a November 14th bow in the UK and Ireland (it will premiere at the 58th London Film Festival in October). The film, formerly known as ‘Animal Rescue,’ stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Gandolfini, John Ortiz and James Frecheville.
‘The Drop’ focuses on a man (Tom Hardy) who wants to shed his criminal path but somehow gets mixed up in a bad heist and a killing resulting from a lost and contested pit bull. Rapace will play Nadia, a woman who crosses paths with the protagonist when he finds a wounded puppy outside her home. Author Dennis Lehane adapted the film from his own short story that first appeared in ‘Boston Noir.’ Previous Lehane movie adaptations include ‘Mystic River,’ ‘Shutter Island’ and ‘Gone Baby Gone.’
Margot Robbie is reportedly in early talks to star in the live-action adaptation of ‘Ghost in the Shell,’ which Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) is directing for DreamWorks. Based on the popular Japanese manga created by Masamune Shirow, the story follows the exploits of a member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime.
The 1995 anime influenced a number of prominent filmmakers. The Wachowskis, the creators of ‘The Matrix’ and its sequels, showed it to producer Joel Silver, saying, “We wanna do that for real.” Other parallels have been drawn to James Cameron’s ‘Avatar,’ Steven Spielberg’s ‘AI: Artificial Intelligence,’ and Jonathan Mostow’s ‘Surrogates,’ among others. The ‘Ghost in the Shell’ anime was written by Kazunori Itō, directed by Mamoru Oshii, animated by Production I.G, and featured the voices of Atsuko Tanaka, Akio Ōtsuka and Iemasa Kayumi.
