Movie News and Rumors for 2-13-15
Courtesy of JoBlo Movie Trailers, a new bind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming SPECTRE film was released. The video gives us a glimpse of one of the set locations in high-up mountains of Austria where they filmed one of the action sequences. The video also provides narratives from a few of the cast and crew, including Dave Bautista, who recently became the Kurgan in an upcoming Highlander reboot, per Latino-Review. That’s called a two-for!
Don’t call it a reboot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a “recalibration” of the franchise is in the works, having called upon writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to pen the new film. The two wrote Saw IV to VII, Piranha 3D, and worked on God of War for Universal. There’s no director or cast suspicions at this time, but the film is being produced by Malek Akkad and Matt Stein. Akkad is the son of Moustapha Akkad, who produced the original batch of Halloween movies.

Ryan Reynolds teased his Deadpool mask on his Twitter yesterday, joking “Sepia tone disgueses the fact the mask is ballerina pink”. The film is set to release February 12th, 2016.

It’s been talked about for a few years now, and things are moving at a glacial pace, but there’s some news regarding a new Pee-Wee Herman movie. It’s rumored that Netflix has actually picked up the film, and shooting could start sometime this year. As reported by The Wrap, Netflix hasn’t confirmed the deal, but they have provided Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Big Top Pee-Wee, The Pee-Wee Herman Show, and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse to their streaming service, as a way to prep audiences. The film is being produced by Judd Apatow, though director and plot remain under wraps. Be sure to check out the video above of Pee-Wee doing the voiceover for The Dark Knight trailer.
