Oscar Isaac and Charlize Theron will lead the voice cast of a new animated Addams Family movie. Honestly, I think it's a missed opportunity to not feature those two in full costume in a live-action version.

Jonathan Glazer's next film will be about the Holocaust, set in Auschwitz
The director said he remembers, as a child, looking at pictures from World War II, and being horrified by specific imagery. “I remember being very taken by the faces of the bystanders, the onlookers, the complicit, you know? Ordinary Germans,” he said.

“I started wondering how it would be possible to stand by and watch that. Some of the faces actually enjoy it. The spectacle of it. The kinda circus of it,” he continued.

Relatedly, Jarmusch's next film concerns zombies.

I thought our culture was done with zombies/zombie apocalypse as a means of coping with, uh, actual apocalypse, but it seems enough of a sell for Jarmusch to snag funding. I imagine it will be as much a zombie film as Only Lovers Left Alive was a vampire film.

Shirley Jackson's The Lottery is being turned into a film. Unfortunately it's being written by Jake Wade Wall, whose most notable films are the mid-noughties remakes of The Hitcher and When a Stranger Calls...

What ever happened to that We Have Always Lived in the Castle adaptation? Looks like it was shot 2 years ago, is it just shelved?

I'm not sure either. All I could find is a Deadline article vaguely referencing it as coming soon.

The Primevals, a low budget Harryhausen-style adventure film that has remained in post-production for nearly twenty years due to the death of its writer/director/animator Dave Allen in 1999, is back in production and will be finished next year.

Robert Zemeckis to direct Dwayne Johnson as Hawaiian king Kamehameha for WB/New Line. This has been a passion project of Johnson's for quite some time as the article states, I'm glad he's getting to do it and with someone like Zemeckis directing it too.

I'd need at least five years between this administration and that movie to ever be interested. It's already like an Iannucci script playing out.

Completely missed the news of this last month, but Pablo Larrain quickly arranged to film an additional movie while waiting for the True American to start production. Titled Ema, it stars Gael Garcia Bernal and features scenes in which the characters express themselves via interpretive dance. More details here

Excellent! Just rewatched Duke of Burgundy the other night after hearing good things out of In Fabric’s Toronto screenings (and liked it even more than when I saw it the first time). Here’s hoping this gets a broad enough audience to spur someone to release Katalin Varga on Blu.
