  • Ron Livingston joins The Flash movie: Ron Livingston has been cast to replace Billy Crudup as Henry Allen in the upcoming Flash movie directed by Andy Muschietti.  There’s no reason given for the recasting but Crudup played Henry Allen in both the theatrical and Snyder Cut versions of Justice League.

  • The Man Who Fell to Earth series gets more cast members: Showtime is developing an adaptation of The Man Who Fell to Earth, the original film famously starring David Bowie, and has added Naomie Harris and Jimmi Simpson are joining the cast.  Chiwetel Ejiofor is playing the main character, an alien who arrives on Earth and could potentially alter humanity’s evolution.  Harris is playing a scientist named Justin Falls and Simpson is playing Spencer Clay, a CIA agent hunting down Ejiofor’s alien.  The show was going to be a Paramount+ exclusive but recently moved to Showtime.

Brown and Niecy Nash will co-star.  The show was first announced last October and will have a 10 episode season on Netflix.
  • Jamie Foxx playing Mike Tyson for new limited series: Jamie Foxx will be portraying Mike Tyson for a new limited series created by Antoine Fuqua.  Mike Tyson himself is involved with the series, as is Martin Scorsese, but there’s currently no network attached, although, given the talent, there will probably be one soon.  Hulu has a competing Tyson series in development but Tyson has come out against his portrayal in that series, so this Jamie Foxx one will probably be more sympathetic to the controversial boxing legend.
  • Emerald Fennell writing a Zatanna movie for DC: Oscar-nominated director Emerald Fennell is writing a Zatanna solo movie for Warner Bros/DC.  Fennell wrote and directed Best Picture nominee Promising Young Woman but there’s only news about her writing a Zatanna movie, not directing as of the current time.  Zatanna is a powerful magic user in the world of DC comics and probably best known as a member of the Justice League Dark team alongside characters like John Constantine, Swamp Thing, and Etrigan the Demon.

  • HBO Max’s hybrid strategy only for 2021: Warner Bros rocked the entire movie industry last year when they announced this year’s plan of releasing movies in theaters and on HBO Max day and date with no additional fee.  Huge movies like Godzilla vs Kong and Mortal Kombat are coming up soon but WB announced this week that they only plan on doing this model for 2021 and will return to a traditional model of theatrical releases in 2022.  The studio made a deal with Cineworld, which owns the Regal theater chain in the US, to have a 45-day window of theatrical exclusivity before movies can debut on streaming or VOD.  Regal, when they finally reopen, will also show all of WB’s films for 2021.

Netflix Unleashes Project Power in August (Trailer)

Hopefully continuing the trend of awesome action Netflix has been delivering this year like Extraction and The Old Guard, Project Power arrives in August on the streaming service.  Starring Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback, the trio come from different backgrounds in New Orleans to team up and try to uncover and stop the source of a drug called Power, which lets whoever takes it have 5 minutes of superpowers.  The catch is that the user of the drug doesn’t know what power will manifest until they take it and it could also be a deadly reaction with devastating effects.  Rodrigo Santoro co-stars as the kingpin behind the drug and Machine Gun Kelly, Amy Landecker, and Courtney B. Vance co-star as well.  The movie is directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the pair behind Catfish as well as Paranormal Activity 3, Nerve, and Viral.  It looks like some really awesome superpowered based action and you can check it out on August 14th, watch the trailer below.

Musical Montage: Jamie Foxx “Blame It”

Along with being an Academy Award-winning actor, Jamie Foxx has also been an extremely successful R&B singer as well and one of his biggest hits came off of his 2008 album Intuition, “Blame It”.  Featuring T-Pain, “Blame It’ is a club jam about how people in clubs might be doing things they normally wouldn’t and then “Blame it on the A-a-a-a-alcohol”.  The song hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the second-longest #1 in the history of the R&B Billboard charts, staying on top for 14 weeks.  By 2008, Foxx had established himself as a movie star as well as a singer and he was able to pull in a bunch of famous friends for the music video (which was directed by Hype Williams), including Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Quincy Jones, Bill Bellamy, Mos Def, Forest Whitaker, Cedric the Entertainer and…Ron Howard?  The song also won the Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal Grammy at the 52nd Grammy Awards.  Check out the video below.
