In a recent interview with ScreenRant, Dermot Mulroney revealed he plays a cop whose “daughter is one of [Ghostface’s] victims” in Scream 6.
Yeah, I play a cop, so finally they’re asking me to play cops here and there, this is one of them. I guess I shouldn’t say that my daughter is one of the victims… but I don’t have to describe how or in what way, so that’s what draws me into the story is strong family ties.
Hell of a Summer
Deadline reports D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Abby Quinn, and Pardis Saremi have joined the cast of Finn Wolfhard’s horror-comedy Hell of a Summer.
In a recent interview with The Direct, co-director Adil El Arbi described Batgirl as “a spaghetti of Multiverses” you’ll have to “see the other [33 previous years of DC] movies to understand what happens.”
Well you know, we’d sort of give the same answer, because we would also ask, ‘Oh, you have J.K. Simmons from the Snyderverse and we got Michael Keaton from the Burton-verse. What’s the situation there?’ And they would say, ‘Don’t worry about it. We got a plan.’ They never really explained that aspect to us, but I guess you’re gonna have to see the other movies to understand what happens, why the reason is that we ended up in sort of a spaghetti of Multiverses in that aspect. It’s gonna be a delicious spaghetti, I’m sure of that.
Alicia Vikander told Entertainment Weekly she has “no clue” if there are still plans for a sequel to 2018’s Tomb Raider from director Misha Green.
With the MGM and Amazon buyout, I have no clue. Now it’s kind of politics. I think Misha and I have been ready, so it’s kind of in somebody else’s hands, to be honest. I’ve been excited to show the world. I love what she’s done with Lovecraft Country.
Knock at the Cabin
Author Paul Tremblay has revealed to CNBC that M. Night Shyamalan’s mysterious new project Knock at the Cabin is actually “a direct film adaptation” of his novel The Cabin at the End of the World. Per the synopsis at GoodReads, the story concerns a family vacationing at a remote cabin in the woods when four strangers carrying “unidentifiable, menacing objects” ask for help saving the world.
Rob Zombie confirmed his film adaptation of The Munsters will premiere on Netflix later this year.

Matthew Modine stated he doesn’t believe we’ve seen the last of Dr. Martin Brenner in a new interview with Vulture.
No, I wouldn’t [say he’s dead] because I wouldn’t want him to be dead. Three things are curious to me: How did he survive the Demogorgon? How did he survive One? And when Eleven tries to use her power against Dr. Brenner after blowing three guards in the air, he unflinchingly thwarts her and says, ‘You didn’t think it was going to be that easy, did you?’ She couldn’t get it to work on him. Is there something more to Brenner than meets the eye? I don’t want to believe it’s over, because I love the Duffers. I don’t want to believe it’s over, because I can’t wait to work with Millie again. I say Millie, because I don’t really have anything to do with the other cast members — except for Paul Reiser. The horror of what Brenner did is accepting and understanding his culpability in the death of all those children because of what One did. So if Eleven and Kali, or just Eleven, forgave him and sent him off, he would spend the remaining days of his life knowing he had been forgiven but having to accept responsibility for what he did. I think Dr. Brenner is a more moral person than that, and he’d have to spend his final days acknowledging and accepting responsibility for the pain he caused. That’s the real nightmare — not being able to escape your thoughts and the things you’ve seen or done.
