Deadline reports DeWanda Wise will star in Imaginary, a new horror film from director from Kick-Ass 2 and Fantasy Island director, Jeff Wadlow, at Lionsgate and Blumhouse. The story is said to concern Jessica (Wise) as she “moves back into her childhood home with her family. Her youngest stepdaughter Alice develops an eerie attachment to a stuffed bear named Chauncey she finds in the basement. Alice starts playing games with Chauncey that begin playful and become increasingly sinister. As Alice’s behavior becomes more and more concerning, Jessica intervenes only to realize Chauncey is much more than the stuffed toy bear she believed him to be.”
Bjorn of the Dead
Deadline also reports Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson will star in Bjorn of the Dead, a horror film from SLAXX director Elza Kephart about “an ABBA tribute band who find themselves, along with other tribute acts, trapped in a nightclub at the start of the apocalypse. Bjorn and his band must work together to save themselves, humanity, and the future of music. The outlet additionally notes the film promises to be a “gore fest,” boasting “various cameos from the world of rock and heavy metal.”
Kevin Feige teased we’d “perhaps” meet the MCU’s X-Men “soon,” during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight.
It’s super exciting. The X-Men are as solid and rich and great a concept in characters that exist. [We’re doing] the return of the animated series next year, which we’re very excited about. I saw some new, final episodes today, which really bring you back to that core of who the X-Men are and that soap opera that those characters represent. In live-action, people will see. Perhaps soon.
