A blizzard of showbiz news has blown across the land, and it's time for a round-up!
Deadline. The live-action/animated hybrid will be directed by Dave Green, and written by Samy Burch based on the New Yorker article Coyote vs. Acme by Ian Frazer and the Looney Tunes characters. The film has been in development since 2018 (see "Wile E. Coyote Sues Acme"), but now has a new script and producers.
Variety. It will be directed by Kenji Kamiyama and Joseph Chou (both of Blade Runner: Black Lotus) through his anime studio Sola Entertainment. While the anime shares some creative DNA with the New Line releases by Peter Jackson, there’s no connection between this film and the live-action series from Prime Video (see "’LOTR Trailer").
Variety. Paramount is currently in negotiations with stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho and Simon Pegg to return to the Enterprise's command deck. Star Trek 4 was previously put on hiatus after these stars refused to bow to Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media's proposed budget cuts (see "'Star Trek 4' Stars Balk at Pay Cuts").
The Hollywood Reporter. This movie, which will be based on the comic book of the same title (see "A Visit With Wonder Comics"), will be written and directed by Adam Sztykiel, and produced by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. The Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, had previously appeared on-screen in the 70s animated The All-New Super Friends Hour series, in guest appearances on Teen Titans, and in Smallville.
