While I’m sure DC views Swamp Thing as a franchise, I would be viewing it as a very simple, clean, Gothic horror movie about this man/monster… Just doing my own thing with this, just a standalone.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Part 1
During a recent interview with Comic Book, Pom Klementieff revealed it was her own idea to have her villainous new Mission: Impossible character wear eerie, Pierrot-inspired make-up.
So much fun. I had so much fun creating the character. And what is fun also is that the character was not written at all on paper. What Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise do is they cast the actor and then build the character around the actor’s abilities and all the conversations that we have. So it was just nothing at first, and it became just all these things that we added and I came up with. You know, different ideas. The makeup that the character wears in Venice, with the white and the teardrop. I thought it would be fun to wear, to draw a mask on my face instead of wearing one, because at some point other characters were supposed to wear a mask. And I thought, ‘You know, she’s a rebel.’ She doesn’t really care. So I thought she would wear something that is a little bit strange just to make fun of the whole thing. I thought it’d be funny because it’s a little bit sad, melancholic, but she would look like a thug. And then with a sweat, with a fight, it would all just drip down. And then I look like a monster at some point. It was so many little ideas and they’re so down for that, you know? They’re like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s great. And what about this? And what about this?’ So it was such a collaborative process.
Dune: Part Two
Appearing as a guest on the latest episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast, The Last of Us showrunner Craig Mazin revealed he’ll be credited as a “participating writer” on Dune: Part Two.
I’m out of the movie business, basically. I’ll work with certain directors when they call because I love them and because they’re so brilliant, so if, like, Denis Villeneuve calls, then absolutely. I’m there for, three-four weeks, a month, to work on what you’re working on.
