The waves of news keep on rolling in, and it's time for another round-up!

Sony Pictures booted Beyond the Spider-verse from the release schedule, according to Variety.  This movie was originally set to open on March 29, 2024 (see "Best in Shows -- 2024"), but work stoppages due to the SAG-AFTRA strike (see "SAG-AFTRA Strike") have made it impossible for voice actors to complete their dialogue for the movie.

Sony Pictures has also pushed back several titles, with the near-term changes tied to the unavailability of actors to promote the movie.  Kraven the Hunter (see "'Kraven' Trailer") is moving from October 6, 2023 to August 30, 2024, and Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2 is going from December 20, 2023 to March 26, 2024.  Also, a Karate Kid reboot, which was scheduled for June 7, 2024 is now headed for December 13, 2024.  Among other Sony moves, Madame Web is now slated for a February 14, 2024 release, and Venom 3 (see "’Venom 3’ Gets Director") for July 12, 2024.

Paramont Pictures and Nickeloden Movies revealed that a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem sequel and a TV series are in the works, according to Variety.  The series, titled Tales of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, will be a two-season bridge between the first Mutant Mayhem movie and the sequel, and will stream on Paramount+.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem hits theaters on August 2, 2023 (see "'TMNT: Mutant Mayhem'").

Disney has tapped Donald and Stephen Glover to pen the Star Wars: Lando series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  This series was announced back in 2020 (see "Investor Day") and originally to be written by Justin Simien.  Unfortunately, Simien dropped out of the project and now the Glovers are on the job.

Neflix dropped a trailer for Heartstopper Season 2 (see below).  Netflix had previously released clips of the new season back in June (see "'Heartstopper Season 2").

Netflix has ended development of its live action Masters of the Universe feature after spending at least $30 million on development, according to Variety.  The Nee Brothers were set to direct from a screenplay co-written with David Callaham (see "’MOTU’ Feature").  Mattel is reportedly now shopping the project.
