The Fantastic Four
According to host Jeff Sneider on the latest episode of The Hot Mic podcast, Adam Driver has purportedly turned down Disney’s offer to star in the MCU’s upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
This contradicts some stuff some we’ve put out there in the past, but…this comes from someone apparently working on the Fantastic Four movie. They said that Adam Driver was never really engaged in this. They sent Adam Driver the script a while back and he said that he couldn’t connect with the character on the page, and he passed very early on.
Variety reports Black Mandala has acquired the rights to Cheat, a supernatural horror movie written and directed by Kevin Ignatius and Nick Psinakis concerning an “urban legend that a supernatural being from the afterlife will violently murder anyone who cheats on their partner.” The story is said to be “set in a small Pennsylvania college town where the city’s unusually high suicide rate is finally convincing locals and college students alike that all is not as it seems. The story focuses on a college woman who sleeps with the married man of the host family she is staying with.”
Talk to Me 2
Talk to Me co-director Danny Philippou stated he “couldn’t help but write scenes for a sequel” during a recent interview with GamesRadar+.
When we were writing the first film, we couldn’t help but write scenes for a sequel as well. Our bible on the movie is so extensive. We’ve got this massive mythology bible where we broke down every single spirit that the kids connected with, every single rule, every single part of the hand, and the history behind it. So I think there’s so much to explore.
I’d be so excited about the idea of doing a sequel, and there’s a hundred different directions that you could take it. So yeah, oh my gosh, it would be so cool to do a sequel. I’d love that opportunity.

Star Wars: Andor
I mean, I’ve been involved with Star Wars ever since [Return of the Jedi] in various forms. I’m often asked to go back and do some of the TV work. But yeah, something for Wicket would be fun, wouldn’t it? Although, let’s look at the other characters I’ve played, you know? I think there’s some really interesting characters in there. Namely Weeteef from Rogue One, you know, what’s happened to him? Did he end up blowing up? I can’t remember now. It’s all a blur.
