I’m not trying to be Charlie Brown getting tricked by Lucy Van Pelt with her little football. I will not fall for the banana in the tailpipe. I will not get my hopes up high that THE FLASH is actually shooting. Sure, Andy Muschietti says “Day One”, but what if it’s just day one of pre-production? What if it is actually day one of shooting and then WB pulls the plug for some reason. Nyet. I won’t believe THE FLASH - the film that was announced in 2013 and has gone through more directors than Barry Allen has gone through timelines - is actually ready to go. Even though the hiring of composer Benjamin Wallfisch (SHAZAM!, INVISBILE MAN, BLADE RUNNER 2049) to do the score was announced, I still don’t trust it. Prove me wrong, Muschietti. Prove me wrong.
The other production I am surprised is actually under way is BLACK ADAM.
It was recently announced that comedian and RAMY costar Mo Amer has joined the cast.
- More casting news out of the DCEU. She played Dr. Watson on CBS’ ELEMENTARY and she played the iconic O-Ren Ishii
now Lucy Liu is once again coming in for the kill. She is the latest to join SHAZAM 2: FURY OF THE GODS as the villainous Kalypso, sister of the film’s big bad Hespera played by Dame Helen Mirren.
Under the sea, there are rumblings that GAME OF THRONES Iron Islands usurper Pilou Asbaek is joining AQUAMAN 2.
And since this is, apparently, a time for miracles, ATLANTA is finally back to filming after an extended hiatus!! Rumor is that series three and four will film concurrently in Europe.
The last episode of series Two (aka Robbin’ Season) aired in 2018!!
ATLANTA was gone so long that people began saying DAVE was the best show on F/X! (Though, DAVE is really good. Loved the GaTa centric episode and the episode where Lil Dicky freestyles on The Breakfast Club.
These two dudes will be back June 16th for series two.)
Anyway....in the interim the not Donald Glover stars of ATLANTA has been staying busy. Oscar nominee Lakeith Stanfield starred in UNCUT GEMS, THE PHOTOGRAPH, KNIVES OUT, JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH and the upcoming Netflix western THE HARDER THEY FALL (costarring Regina King, Idris Elba, Ed Gethagi, Delroy Lindo and Jonathan Majors).
Zazie Beetz starred in HIGH FLYING BIRD, WOUNDS, SEBERG, JOKER,
will also appear in THE HARDER THEY FALL with Stanfield and she and Brian Tyree Henry filmed David Leitch’s much anticipated actioner BULLET TRAIN starring Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Michael Shannon and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
Besides BULLET TRAIN Brian Tyree Henry had a small role in JOKER, THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, was one of the stars of KONG VS. GODZILLA,
and will (eventually) be seen in Marvel’s THE ETERNALS.
