The story is said to follow Ava (Ridley), “a desperate woman whose husband is missing in the aftermath of a catastrophic military experiment. Hoping to find him alive, Ava joins a body retrieval unit, but her search takes a chilling turn when the corpses she’s burying start showing signs of life.” Filming is expected to begin this February in western Australia.

Home Safe

Deadline additionally reports Mira Sorvino, Felisha Terrell, Jason MacDonald, Juddy Talt, Emily Topper and Michael Shenefelt will star in Home Safe, an A.I. “psychological thriller” from director Jacob Vaughn (Bad Milo). The story follows Anna (Terrell), “the editor-in-chief of a news magazine, and her husband Daniel (MacDonald), the founder of an AI-centered home security company.” After the two are “threatened by a mysterious houseguest” the couple installs Kiera (Sorvino), an “advanced home security system” whose “growing sentience” escalates into an even greater threat than home invaders.

Out of Darkness/Origin

According to Deadline, the stone age horror film Origin has been retitled Out of Darkness and is now scheduled for a February 9, 2024 theatrical release date. Starring Safia Oakley-Green, Chuku Modu, Kit Young, Iola Evans, Luna Mwezi, Arno Luening, Rosebud Melarkey and Tyrell Mhlanga, the story follows “a small boat” in the Paleolithic period reaching “the shores of a raw and desolate landscape. A group of six have struggled across the narrow sea to find a new home. They are starving, desperate, and living 45,000 years ago. First they must find shelter, and they strike out across the tundra wastes towards the distant mountains that promise the abundant caves they need to survive. But when night falls, anticipation turns to fear and doubt as they realize they are not alone.”

Salem’s Lot

Variety reports that Gary Dauberman’s Stephen King adaptation could now launch exclusively on Max, instead of heading to theaters. The trade reports that Warner Bros. feels like it needs Max content, due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.

Joker: Folie a Deux

In conversation with Definition Magazine (via Comic Book) Joker: Folie a Deux cinematographer Lawrence Sher admitted the musical sequel was “risky” but is “excited for everyone to see it.”

Next year we’re releasing the new Joker movie, and we’re currently in the final stages of post-production. It’s a pretty risky movie and it’s going to be surprising for people. I’m so excited for everyone to see it.
