Chloe Moretz Drops Out of ‘The Little Mermaid,’ Wants to ‘Reassess’ Her Acting Choices

Chloe Moretz has handily avoided becoming another child actor-turned-cautionary tale, and though she’s wildly talented, her roles in recent years have been — with a few exceptions — mostly underwhelming. That’s not to say that she hasn’t been an interesting performer to watch; just that there’s a discrepancy in quality between Moretz’s skills and some of the films she’s chosen. The actress’ schedule has remained consistently busy since her breakout role in Kick-Ass, but according to Moretz, it may be time to take a step back.

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Trailer Promises Fireworks and Stalkers, Apparently

Uh, wait — is Fifty Shades Darker a ’90s thriller? That certainly seems to be the case based on the first full trailer for the upcoming sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, in which Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele reunites with Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey for another quasi-erotic outing. This time there are no rules (or any humor that we can see), but there are lots of fireworks, a masquerade party, a new beau and a stalker…or two?

‘Amanda Knox’ Trailers Show Both Sides of Netflix’s New Documentary

Believe her or suspect her? Those are the questions posited by not one, but two new trailers for Netflix’s new original documentary Amanda Knox. The acclaimed doc centers on the eponymous subject, who was tried, along with her boyfriend, for the murder of her roommate while studying abroad. In what became known as the biggest trial of the decade in Italy, Knox’s case captivated people all over the world, but questions of her guilt — and innocence — still remain.

Film Executives Launch The Alice Initiative, a Black List For Female Directors

The controversy surrounding Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot seemed like it might have a silver lining; isn’t Hollywood’s diversity problem improving if we’re arguing about a major summer blockbuster starring four women? Sadly, the answer is no. But on the heels of a new study that proves Hollywood has made excruciatingly little progress on the diversity front, a group of anonymous female film executives have formed The Alice Initiative, which puts the spotlight on up-and-coming female directors to encourage and support gender diversity behind-the-scenes.

Rumor: Warner Bros. Likes Money, Wants Daniel Radcliffe For ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ Trilogy

Just last month, Warner Bros. filed for a trademark on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the hit stage play (the script was also released in book form) that serves as the eighth installment in J.K. Rowling’s classic series. While that doesn’t necessarily indicate that WB is plotting a new Harry Potter movie, a new rumor suggests that that’s exactly what it means — and they want Daniel Radcliffe to return for not just one, but three films.

Disney Taps ‘Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda For ‘The Little Mermaid’ Live-Action Remake

It was honestly surprising that it took Disney so long to add The Little Mermaid to their growing list of live-action remakes, and although it was announced a bit later than the rest of the studio’s projects, it may be a bit closer to happening than we thought. Today brings word that Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda will work on the music for the live-action retelling of Disney’s animated classic, collaborating with original composer Alan Menken.

‘It’ Producer Compares Stephen King Adaptation to ‘Stranger Things,’ Time Collapses in On Itself

Stranger Things creators The Duffer Brothers recently revealed that they once offered to direct the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It, but Warner Bros. politely declined. Instead, they went off and made a Stephen King story of their own with their hit Netflix series. Perhaps returning the shout-out favor, one of the producers behind It is comparing the upcoming film to Stranger Things, thus creating a nostalgia paradox that will inevitably cause the internet to implode.

‘End of the Tour’ Director James Ponsoldt to Helm Disney’s ‘Wild City’

Surprise! Disney is making a live-action and CGI hybrid movie that isn’t a remake of one of their established properties — it’s like Christmas in August, or maybe someone at the studio realized they have enough live-action remakes in development to get them through the next 30 years and into nuclear winter. In any case, Disney has hired End of the Tour and The Spectacular Now director James Ponsoldt to take on their latest live-action / CGI project, Wild City.

Jimmy Fallon to Host the 2017 Golden Globes

Following in the footsteps of his former SNL pals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon will host the 2017 Golden Globes — which should also provide a respite from the antics of Ricky Gervais, for those of you who were growing a little weary of his schtick.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Trailer Invades Comic-Con With Magical New Footage

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters in November, returning Harry Potter fans to J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world — or a different corner of it, anyway. Warner Bros. brought the first film in their magical spinoff trilogy to Comic-Con 2016, where they debuted a rather, uh, fantastic new trailer featuring plenty of beasts, indeed.
