Rumor: Chris Columbus to Produce New 'Gremlins' and 'Goonies'

Chris Columbus

Though filmmaker Chris Columbus may not be at the top of his game right now (hopefully his big screen version of Pixels will change that), back in the day, Columbus was responsible for some of the most revered movies of the 80s. The Home Alone director wrote the script for the original Gremlins back in 1984, and also the script for The Goonies back in 1985. Now if a rumor from The Tracking Board is to be believed, Columbus will go back to his roots by producing the new versions of both those films, which are each in some stage of development. While one is a sequel, the other will be a reboot. But which is which? Read on!

Marvel's Future Plans for Hulk May Involve Another Heroic Team

Hulk / Guardians of the Galaxy

There's been a lot of buzz about what Marvel might have in store for The Incredible Hulk following The Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was bodybuilder and TV series star Lou Ferrigno who first started talking about plans for another standalone movie for the green machine, and The Avengers star Mark Ruffalo echoed his sentiments. Then just yesterday, Ruffalo was specifically asked about bringing a certain storyline to the big screen: Planet Hulk. However, the actor didn't seem to think that was the story to go with to continue Hulk's arc. But now it turns out that may not entirely be true, but Ruffalo wasn't necessarily lying.

Rumor: 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Could Get Pushed Back to 2016

Star Wars

It's time for another big rumor for Star Wars: Episode VII. No we're not talking about the stupid story from The Sun claiming that Tom Cruise will have a cameo in the film. Yes, Cruise had dinner with J.J. Abrams, but the director is also a producer on Mission: Impossible 5, and the film is preparing to shoot in the United Kingdom. However, there is a rumor to potentially be concerned about. Jedi News has heard there was an emergency meeting at Pinewood Studios across the pond today to talk about the future of Star Wars: Episode VII, because it turns out Harrison Ford's injury might be worse than previously thought.

Warner Bros. Already Planning Ben Affleck as 'The Batman' for 2019?

Ben Affleck / The Batman

With the rumored timeline of DC Comics releases from Warner Bros. surfacing recently, you might have noticed that the studio didn't have any additional plans for Batman beyond his appearance in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the assembly of heroes in Justice League. However, it seems like their plan may be just beyond as far as that rumored timeline went. If a new rumor from Latino Review is true (and we probably won't know the real story for years, so take all of this with a grain of salt for the time being), then the studio apparently has their eye on releasing the first new standalone Batman movie starring Ben Affleck in 2019. That's what they're saying. Oh, and it will reportedly simply be titled The Batman.

There's been some news and rumors swirling about the plot and villains of Star Wars: Episode VII as production is underway at Pinewood Studios in London.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 3' Rumored to Be Delayed Until 2017 Now

The Amazing Spider-Man

While reporting yesterday's rumor about the linked release schedule for Warner Bros. Pictures' comic book properties from DC Comics, the folks at AICN have tossed another rumor onto the fire, but this time about another studio and their comic book cash cow. Despite the fact that Sony Pictures had already set releases dates for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 in 2016 and 2018 respectively, the rumor is the studio wants to delay the third film in the franchise to an unknown date in 2017. It's not surprising since The Amazing Spider-Man 2 saw box office receipts plummet after a promising opening.

Warner Bros. Plans for Cinematic DC Universe May Have Leaked

Justice League

The gathering of geeks at Comic-Con in San Diego is still over a month away, but you can count on some big surprises meant for the convention getting spoiled before then. One such major announcement may come from Warner Bros. as former Deadline head Nikki Finke has returned to the entertainment news battlefront with her own site and a big scoop to kick things off. Normally this kind of rumor would be brushed off, but coming from someone like Finke, we're inclined to believe it. Supposedly the studio has a timeline plan for how they want to release films in the DC Comics universe following Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and their plans are pretty damn ambitious, and they also tell us who will be in Justice League.

Simon Pegg Rumored to Have Small Role in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

Simon Pegg

With the bulk of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII already announced, and the addition of Lupita Nyong's and Gwendoline Christie beefing up the female presence recently, there's probably not many integral roles in the film left to be revealed. However, IGN Middle East (via Bleeding Cool) has word that Shaun of the Dead and Star Trek star Simon Pegg has a small role in the sci-fi sequel. But it doesn't sound like it's very extensive, because Pegg has apparently already completed shooting what will likely amount to a cameo on the set of the film in Abu Dhabi, which has since completed as production has moved to London.

Denzel Washington Rumored for Lead in 'Magnificent Seven' Remake

Denzel Washington

The remake train keeps on plugging away for better or worse. We've heard that there was a gestating remake of the classic The Magnificent Seven, which in itself is a remake of Seven Samurai, and Tom Cruise was attached back in 2012. However, it sounds like the actor has since moved on, because The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua has been mulling over an offer from MGM to direct the film. It's not clear if he's officially on board, but Schmoes Know reports that he's already taken the job, and he's already trying to get Denzel Washington on board to lead. It makes sense following their work on Training Day and The Equalizer.

Jared Leto Rumored to Be in the Running to Play 'Doctor Strange'?

Doctor

Now that Marvel has zoned in on Sinister and Deliver Us from Evil director Scott Derrickson to direct their Phase Three title Doctor Strange, they need to find a star to bring the magical superhero to life. Names like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Johnny Depp have been mentioned in the past as possible contenders, but it's not clear if any of those rumors are solid. Now one more name is in the mix with Badass Digest mentioning that Marvel was once keen on Dallas Buyers Club star Jared Leto, fresh off his Oscar win. However, the source isn't quite sure if that's a current train of thought at the comic book studio. Read on!

Josh Brolin Rumored to Voice Thanos in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Josh Brolin

We've known since 2012 that the comic book villain Thanos, teased during the mid-credits scene that followed The Avengers, would have a role in both this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, and next year's release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, since he didn't speak in the aforementioned tease, we've been wondering just who will bring the cosmic bad guy to life. Now if a rumor from Latino Review is true, it will be No Country for Old Men, Men in Black III and Labor Day star Josh Brolin in the role. Well, he'll at least be providing the voice for Thanos when he shows up in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Tom Hardy Rumored to Join Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Revenant'

Tom Hardy

Just last month we learned that Babel director Alejando Gonzalez Inarritu (who won't be taking Birdman with Michael Keaton to Cannes) was going to team with Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant a new gritty, period thriller set in the 19th century. DiCaprio would play Hugh Glass, a fur trapper who joins the Rocky Mountain Fur Company in a speculative venture that takes him and ten other men up the Missouri River into perilous, unexplored territory. Now Schmoes Know are reporting that Tom Hardy is in "serious talks" to reteam with his Inception co-star. However, it's not clear what role Hardy might be taking. More below!

Alfonso Cuarón Rumored for an Offer to Direct 'The Shining' Prequel

The Shining

After news surfaced that Oscar-winning Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón was in deep talks to direct the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we have a rumor that makes that possibility seem a little less likely. Schmoes Know has learned that Warner Bros. has also made an offer for Cuarón to direct their gestating prequel to The Shining called The Overlook Hotel. The project has been simmering since the summer of 2012 and over a year ago, ormer "The Walking Dead" showrunner, writer and producer Glen Mazzara was brought on to write the script. Could Cuaron be the man for the job now?

Justin Lin to Direct Chris Hemsworth in Reboot of 'Lethal Weapon'?

Chris Hemsworth

Any hopes of a Lethal Weapon 5 pretty much died six years ago when it was reported that Mel Gibson turned the sequel down. At the end of the day, he and Danny Glover were probably really getting too old for this shit (especially the latter, since Gibson is still having fun in The Expendables 3 this year). But that doesn't mean Warner Bros. isn't beyond rebooting the Lethal Weapon franchise, and we heard the studio was interested in doing as much back in 2011. Now the latest word on the street comes from The Tracking Board saying that they want Chris Hemsworth to lead a reboot with Justin Lin directing. More below!
