The Legend of Zelda Could Be Illumination’s Next Nintendo Collaboration


Deadline reports Hugh Grant is attached to star in Heretic, a new horror film at A24 from directors Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. Though details on the plot are “officially” under wraps, the film is “rumoured to centre on two young women of faith who are lured into a cat-and-mouse game in the home of an eccentric man.”

The Legend of Zelda

On the latest episode of The Hot Mic podcast (via Coming Soon), entertainment insider Jeff Sneider alleged Universal is closing “a big deal” with Nintendo and Illumination to produce an animated Legend of Zelda movie.

Transformers One

During a recent interview with Collider, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura praised Chris Hemsworth’s vocal performance as Orion Pax in the upcoming animated Transformers movie still slated for a September 14, 2024 release date.

I don’t know about when we’ll see [the first footage]. It’ll be a while. I can’t tell you how excited I’m getting about it. It’s one of those things that like, it just keeps progressing in the right direction, you know? You never know, sometimes when you’re making a movie, you’re, like, ‘Well, I think it’s working.’ Everything I’m seeing is working and it’s exceeding my sense of what it was gonna be, so I’m really excited about it. It is a very fresh and different look, I would say different than any animated movie you’ve seen, which is a high bar to set, but ILM is capable of delivering it.

Also, it’s the imagination of our artists and our director, and one of the great things is, as you actually put the voices to the characters– When we first listen to Chris Hemsworth’s voice, you’re like, ‘God, is he gonna be a good Optimus!’ Obviously, he starts as Orion Pax and you don’t become Optimus for a while, so he’s not playing, for most of the movie, what we think of as Optimus, Peter Cullen. So it’s that transition, and Chris’s voice has a timbre that… it’s logical that Peter Cullen would take over that voice, if you would, which is really great, the fans are gonna really feel great. But Scarlett [Johansson] is amazing, and it’s just coming alive in a way that it’s really rewarding, and we had confidence in our director, and all he’s doing is giving us more and more.

A serial killer wearing a “a parasitic mask cursed with black magic and bigotry” resurfaces after sixteen years in the trailer for Bad Girl Boogey, coming to VOD this July 4.


Deadline reports Anji White has joined the cast of Ironheart as Ronnie, the mother of Riri Williams.

Secret Invasion

Relatedly, Secret Invasion director Ali Selim described the upcoming Disney+ series as a “six-hour movie” in a new interview with SFX Magazine (via Games Radar).

When it ends, I hope you feel satiated and complete. And as Marvel does so excellently, you also feel like ‘Oh, it could go in this direction.’ Nick Fury is alive and continues to battle, I don’t think that’s a spoiler alert. And there are some characters that are no longer with us and some characters that live to see another challenge. I would love to see that challenge become season two.
