Mark Ronson teases some wild additions to Barbie’s soundtrack. The long-delayed Uzumaki adaptation is still happening. Strange Planet’s animated adaptation sets an August release date. Plus, what’s coming on My Adventures With Superman and Riverdale. Spoilers, away!
The Purge 6
During a recent interview with The Playlist, James DeMonaco stated Universal is “scared” to produce his extra-expensive script for a sixth Purge movie.
I wrote the script. Universal has seen it. There are concerns about budget, but it definitely presents a fractured America…the America I present in Purge 6 is where we all are separated by ideology and sexual preference. So, the states are broken down in different ways. It’s written, it’s in [Universal’s] hands. I think they’re scared about the budget. But my thing was if I was going to come back and direct a sixth one, it was going to be something bigger and a little more epic in scope, with this new America I want to present and bringing back [Frank Grillo’s] character. So, it’s kinda in limbo.
In a separate interview with Time, music producer Mark Ronson teased the Barbie soundtrack includes an undisclosed mystery song from “one of the fucking greatest living artists around.”
[They’re] one of the fucking greatest living artists around but also had a very personal, idiosyncratic tie to Barbie as well.
