Jason Blum Doesn’t Think There Are Any Female Horror Directors

This week marks the launch of the new Halloween movie that is produced by the powerhouse production company, Blumhouse Productions.  For the Blumhouse production owner, Jason Blum, this should be a week of celebration, however, it turned out to be a week of foot-in-mouth and back peddling.

During an interview with Polygon that was published early this week where Blum was supposed to be promoting the release of the new film a question was posed asking why the production company has yet to hire any female directors for their staple horror films.  This is what Jason Blum ha to say:

There are not a lot of female directos period, and even less who are inclined to do horror. I’m a massive admirer of [The Bobadook director] Jennifer Kent. I’ve offered her every movie we’ve had available. She’s turned me down every time.

Soon after the publication of this article the entire industry came down on the producer, offering up many female directos that are more than willing to direct one of his horror movies.

However, Jason Blum took to his twitter account to follow up on his “…dumb comments in that interview,” admitting that he made “a stupid mistake.” Continue reading “Jason Blum Doesn’t Think There Are Any Female Horror Directors”

What?!? An Untitled ‘Deadpool’ Movie Coming Out This Year!

Amidst the news of release date changeups of various Fox properties a huge curveball was thrown, and it has Deadpool’s face on it.

Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds took to his twitter on Friday and tweeted out the image below of Deadpool wearing a santa hat reading a story to The Princess Bride actor Fred Savage.

Shortly after the tweet was release Deadline reported that Fox is claiming that this unnamed Deadpool movie will be releasing this year on December 21st – the same date that Alita: Battle Angel used to hold.

It is unknown at this time what this Deadpool movie is going to be.  Some are speculating that it will be a re-cut version of Deadpool 2 that released earlier this year, or a whole new Deadpool movie.  According to a report by Collider, no matter what type of movie we get, the film will be rated PG-13.  Something that will be a change for the character who has dominated with an R rating in the past.

What do you think of this new Deadpool movie?  Is it being rated PG-13 going to change the entire character? Leave a comment below and lets make a discussion out of it.

Finally, Some Casting News For ‘Deadpool 2’!

Something that has been driving people on the internet crazy for nearly a year now is not knowing when the release date is for Deadpool 2.  We don’t even have a confirmed filming start date for the project, but that hasn’t stopped news and rumors from trickling in; quenching the thirst of anxious Deadpool fans awaiting any kind of update on the project.

Well now we have something! Zazie Beetz, known for her performance in the hit 2016 show Atlanta, has been announced to be playing Domino, a Mutant with the curious ability to manipulate her luck in any situation so that it works out in her favor.  Her abilities paired with Ryan Rynolds’ Deadpool is sure to make for some great laughs.

This announcement was not given in the usual press conference or interview that most casting news seems to come from – but is it really a shock that a Deadpool project would be handled unconventionally? Continue reading “Finally, Some Casting News For ‘Deadpool 2’!”

‘The Flash’ & ‘Aquaman’ Directors Scramble!!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Flash director Seth Grahame-Smith is leaving the scarlet-speedster project due to “creative differences.” Grahame-Smith, who was the screenwriter of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was suppose to make his directorial debut with this movie. However, with his departure he will only be receiving a screenwriter credit, having already penned a draft of the movie.

The Flash has a release date of March 16, 2018 and will be staring Ezra Miller as “the fastest man alive.” So while it never sounds good to have a director leave a project they still have a lot of time to find a new director. Also, looking at the resume of Grahame-Smith I am not too broken up about his departure.  I do not doubt that he can make good movies, but after the critical failure of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. can not afford another flop, so getting a more seasoned director for such a beloved property would be the better idea.  However, this story seemed to have started up the rumor mill in other places.
