Peyton Reed on Teaming Up Ant-Man and the Wasp

Peyton Reed on teaming up Ant-Man and the Wasp

We still have quite a few Marvel Studios films (Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Spider-Man: HomecomingThor: RagnarokBlack Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War Part I) before we get to see the Ant-Man sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, on July 6, 2018, but director Peyton Reed has already talked about some things you can expect.

Talking to Modern Myth Media, Reed said: “Well he’s a fugitive in most of the first Ant-Man movie. He’s just a bigger fugitive now. I think that’s one of the fun things and challenges about the Marvel movies for us, for the directors and for the writers, is you do have to sort of consider what happened in the previous movies in terms of your jumping-off point for those characters. It’s something we talked a lot about early on and we definitely have stuff figured out, so there will be some big leaps forward.”

He added that Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne, AKA Wasp, will be a lead and not just a supporting character. “It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, I always thought of Ant-Man and Wasp as a team and that’s a lot of what the second movie is really about is how they work together, what their personal and professional relationships are like. To show her finally fully formed in this movie is really exciting. We really get to introduce this character into that universe. I mean we’ve introduced the character, but we haven’t seen her with her full power set and everything, so to me she’s not a supporting character in this movie. It’s every bit as much her movie as it is Scott Lang’s.”

And will Michael Peña’s Luis and the rest of the gang return? “Oh there’s definitely a chance! I’d say there’s a fighting chance for that to happen.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp will feature the return of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang alongside Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, with Michael Douglas also expected to reprise the role of Hank Pym in the film. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for release on July 6, 2018. Its predecessor previously grossed over $519 million at the global box office.

Bryan Fuller Discusses Recent Star Trek Rumors

Are the recent Star Trek rumors true?

Bryan Fuller talks Star Trek rumors and teases the upcoming CBS series

With the franchise celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Star Trek fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of both next month’s Star Trek Beyond and next year’s new Star Trek series — the franchise’s first since Star Trek Enterprise concluded its four season run in 2005. Although we’ve seen a teaser trailer, specific details about the new show are few and far between. Moviefone managed to catch up with showrunner Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, American Gods) at this week’s Saturn Awards and got an update regarding some of the Star Trek rumors that have hit the web.

“I mean, it’s funny,” Fuller tells the outlet. “I’ve read that we’re [set] before ‘Next Generation,’ after ‘[Star Trek VI: The] Undiscovered Country,’ which is false. I’ve read that it’s an anthology show, which is not accurate. So it’s interesting to see those suggestions, and seeing the truth mixed in with them and going like, ‘Oh, they got that part right…’ But it’s sort of on the truth-o-meter on PolitiFacts. It’s sort of like some truth, and a lot of like, ‘No — pants on fire! That’s not true.’”

Many of the recent Star Trek rumors originated in a story at Birth.Movies.Death published back in April. While some, like the show’s time period, now appear to be in question, Fuller’s do suggest that there is some also some truth to be found in that report. One of the Star Trek rumors that Fuller does confirm is that the new series will tell a singular story across its first season.

“One of the things that is exciting for me is that we are telling a ‘Star Trek’ story in a modern way,” he explains. “We’re telling a 13-chapter story in this first season. It’s nice to be able to dig deep into things that would have been breezed passed if we were doing episodic and had to contain a story to an episode.”

Fuller also says that we’ll see multiple crews in that storyline and that we’ll “eventually” see some familiar Star Trek characters. Initial casting, however, will aim for diversity.

“We are going to be continuing [Star Trek’s] tradition of progressive casting and progressive character work to be an inclusive world,” says Fuller. “…[T[hat’s the most promising thing that ‘Star Trek’ offers, is a vision of the future where we do all get along.”

Star Trek is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout. Kurtzman, Fuller and Heather Kadin will serve as executive producers.

Roland Emmerich Takes on Moonfall at Universal

Roland Emmerich will next direct Moonfall.

The Independence Day: Resurgence helmer will direct the science fiction disaster tale, Moonfall

With his Independence Day: Resurgence in theaters now, director Roland Emmerich is already gearing up for another science fiction disaster tale. According to a story today at Deadline, Emmerich has signed on to helm Moonfall, based on an original script by himself, Harald Kloser and Spencer Cohen. Kloser previously worked on the script to 2012 and has also maintained a creative partnership with Emmerich as a composer on the director’s last few projects.

Moonfall, likened in the initial report to a combination of 2012 and Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, follows “an unlikely band of misfits who must unite to save humanity when the moon falls out of orbit and hurtles towards earth.”

This Moonfall is not to be confused with another currently in-development project by the same name, a science fiction script by David Weil that made the 2014 Blacklist. That Moonfall has been described as a murder mystery in the vein of Fargo, set at an Earth colony on the moon. Although it’s been some time since we last heard anything about that film, Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Noah) was reportedly interested in directing.

Emmerich and Kloser are also attached to produce Moonfall, which is said to be on the fast track for development.

Independence Day: Resurgence, meanwhile, pulled in $4 million Thursday night. Starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward, the new entry in the franchise picks up 20 years after the 1996 original and sees Earth once again coming under attack from extraterrestrial invaders.

Kathleen Kennedy Talks Mon Mothma’s Role in Rogue One

When the teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released, one very familiar face was present for the film, Rebel Leader Mon Mothma. Set to be played by Genevieve O’Reilly, who previously played the character in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith in a deleted scene, many thought the character would have just a cameo in the film, but Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy has revealed that she will have a ‘significantly larger’ role.

“We actually see quite a bit of her,” Kennedy tells EW. “The Rebel alliance is in disarray. Pretty panicked. Up against it. And she is trying the best she can to provide the leadership, in amongst a wide variety of Rebel soldiers that have very differing opinions as to what to do.”

Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. Felicity Jones leads the cast as Jyn Erso alongside Mads Mikklesen who plays her father, Galen Erso. Diego Luna (Milk, Killing Them Softly) stars as Captain Cassian Andor with Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Blade II) as the blind spiritual warrior Chirrut Imwe, Jiang Wen (Let the Bullets Fly, Devils on the Doorstep) as his heavily armored best friend Baze Malbus,, Alan Tudyk (Firefly) as the droid K-2SO, Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler, Four Lions) as the Rebel pilot Bodhi Rook, plus Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) as Saw Gerrera, a character first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Ben Mendelsohn (BloodlineMississippi Grind) as the film’s main antagonist, Director Orson Krennic.
