Alexander Payne's next film is horror-comedy The Menu.

A television anthology based on the EC Comic "Weird Fantasy" as well as a feature biopic on EC Comics/Mad Magazine founder William M. Gaines are underway. It would be cool if "Weird Fantasy" is visually/stylistically consistent with its original, wonderfully pulpy 1950s comic book art (the cinematic equivalent to which would probably be Forbidden Planet).

From the co-writer of Green Book comes the sure-to-be classic That's Amore!

I'm really interested in the shady-sounding cabal of private investors who want this thing to be realized.

Patti Amore sounds like a fake name someone on Twitter would make up to mock a project like this

And yet the film’s not called Pat’s Amore!. Oscar-worthy screenwriter my rear.

That’s Amore! is a musical romantic comedy about a 40-year-old bachelor who thinks his best years are behind him and who is resigned to working in his family’s pizza restaurant. That is, until he meets Patti Amore, a shy and introverted loner with an overprotective father and a dark secret in her past. The two emotionally damaged people enter into a relationship.
I don't know folks this sounds pretty badass to me and I'm sure in no way will it reinforce any stereotypes about Italians.

Is the "dark secret in her past" that she's an Academy member who voted for Green Book?

It's a cute short story but to make it into a full-length film... gonna have to be a pretty extensive adaptation.

Abel Ferrara's Siberia is currently being shot.

Edit: wrong info, sorry. Tommaso is a different film.

Have to see who's directing/starring but the original is a great film so this'll inevitably pale in comparison.

Screen Gems releases a lot of junk. Not a good sign.

No director mentioned, but what if it is still a Joe Carnahan project after all these years?

Francis Ford Coppola talking up Megalopolis again. I remember reading articles about this almost 20 years ago now, he apparently had Russell Crowe and Paul Newman lined up, and was doing it with Dreamworks when they were in their brief stride.

Despite the cast, Carruth's film still hasn't managed to get off the ground according to Tom Holland. A 200 page script probably didn't assuage investors

Such a shame. Surprised he hasn’t tried going to Blumhouse yet (not for this, obv, but perhaps one of his other in-progress projects), since they’d have no prob signing over $5 million and just think what he could do with that much money after achieving great results with far, far less
