Stephen King’s Rest Stop Short Story Is Becoming a Movie


Stephen King’s 2003 short story Rest Stop is being adapted for the big screen by Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell). Legendary Pictures has tapped Perry to write and direct the adaptation, which is being described as a “cat-and-mouse thriller.” King originally wrote the story and had it published in Esquire Magazine 16 years ago. The short story went on to win the National Magazine Award for Fiction in 2004 and was later included in King’s story collection Just After Sunset in 2008.

Alex Ross Perry has already made some changes to the source material, according to the brief Rest Stop synopsis. In addition to the cat-and-mouse vibe, it’s a twisted journey of two women after an encounter at a rest stop, which swaps the genders from Stephen King’s source material and adds an additional character instead of it just focusing on one. It isn’t clear at this time if Perry will be keeping the main nuts and bolts of the story intact, but it seems he would have to.

Stephen King is bigger now than he ever has been before in terms of his projects getting adapted for the big and small screen. King’s work can be seen on the big screen currently with the recent release of Pet Semetary and on the small screen with Hulu’s Castle Rock series. Up next is the highly anticipated IT 2 and Doctor Sleep, which is a sequel to The Shining. Rest Stop is one of King’s more recent works to receive a decent amount of attention and it will be interesting to see where Alex Ross Perry takes the source material for the big screen.

Alex Perry Ross is known for directing The Color Wheel and Listen Up Philip, but he is currently enjoying some critical success off of his most recent movie Her Smell, which stars Elizabeth Moss. The actress plays an aging rocker with a deteriorating mental state and many have been praising Moss for her acting work and Ross for his directing. Critics are claiming it is his best work to date. This automatically sets up some pressure for the director who is taking on a project originally written by horror icon Stephen King.

Craig Flores (300) will produce Rest Stop through his Bread & Circuses banner, while Alex Garcia and Ali Mendes will oversee the project for Legendary. No casting information has been announced at this time, but that news is expected to drop soon. A release date and production start time are also unknown at the moment. Stephen King projects are still moving forward and it has to be pretty hard work to take his source material and adapt it for the big screen. Maybe Alex Perry Ross will hit a homerun like Andres Muschietti did with his big screen adaptation of IT. Variety was the first to announce the Alex Perry Ross and Rest Stop news.


Mya-Lecia Naylor, 16-Year-Old Cloud Atlas Star, Dies Suddenly After Collapsing


We’ve got some very sad news to pass along today, as British child star Mya-Lecia Naylor has passed away. The actress reportedly died after collapsing earlier this month, although the cause of death has not yet been determined. Although the majority of Naylor’s acting roles were in British movies and TV series, she appeared in the 2012 movie Cloud Atlas along with Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, which was released in the United States. The news was confirmed by the BBC’s children’s network, CBBC, in a statement referring to Naylor as a “much-loved part of the BBC Children’s family and a hugely talented actress, singer and dancer.” With a bright future still ahead of her, Naylor was only 16 years old.

Written by The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer, the fantasy movie Cloud Atlas was adapted from the David Mitchell novel of the same name. With multiple plots taking place across six different eras, the point of the movie is how much the actions someone takes in some time period can heavily affect people in another. The movie sees Naylor plays a little girl named Miro, who’s the granddaughter of Tom Hanks’ character. In the movie, the two have a touching scene where Hanks points out the Earth in the sky to little Miro.

Born in 2002, Naylor made her professional acting debut in 2004 as an infant when she appeared on the British TV series Absolutely Fabulous. In 2011, she was cast in the lead role of Tati on the children’s TV series Tati’s Hotel, appearing in all 26 episodes of the show. That same year also saw her nab the part of Little Red Riding Hood in an episode of Cartoonito Tales. The child star then made her movie debut at the age of nine in 2012’s Cloud Atlas. Naylor followed up with parts in the movies Code Red and Index Zero before landing a recurring role on the CBBC sitcom Millie Inbetween as Fran. It was earlier this year when the young actress began working on the CBBC comedy-drama Almost Never, which would turn out to be her final performance.


Some of Naylor’s CBBC colleagues have been among those sharing their mourning on social media over the child star’s sudden passing. Millie Inbetween co-star Millie Innes took to Instagram to say she was devastated over the news. “The pain of her passing has been awful. Mya and I grew up together over the past five years and had an extremely close relationship. I will always cherish our friendship and the moments we spent together beautiful girl,” Innes writes. Naylor’s Almost Never co-star Ashley Atack shares those sentiments in an Instagram post of her own. “She was a beautiful and talented girl,” Atack says. “A complete joy to be around on the set of Almost Never. Sending all my love to her family & friends. Rest in peace beautiful girl.”

Naylor’s life was only just beginning, and we can only imagine the tremendous pain felt by her family, friends, and colleagues. We offer our condolences to everyone who knew Naylor, and it’s clear she’ll be very badly missed. At just 16 years old, Naylor was way too young, but she certainly made the most of her short life. May she rest in peace. This information comes to us from BBC News.


Robert Downey Jr. Was the Only Avenger to Read Full Endgame Script


Robert Downey Jr. was the only member of the Avengers: Endgame cast who was allowed to read the entire script. Marvel Studios is legendary for keeping their secrets under wraps, which often involves not handing out full scripts to the cast or even handing out scripts with fake endings in them. Endgame is on the way and a lot of the cast members aren’t even sure how everything will end, but when RDJ says the last 8 minutes of the movie are the best thing in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, you might want to believe him.

In a new interview, the Russo Brothers reveal Robert Downey Jr. was the only one to get a full Avengers: Endgame script, though they believe Chris Evans might have too. However, they can only vouch for RDJ at the moment, which makes sense. He’s the guy who helped bring the MCU to where it is today and was the first one out of the gate. With that being said, this could very well mark the last time we see RDJ as Tony Stark on the big screen, though that has not been confirmed at the moment.

Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo definitely were not given any portions of the script except for their lines. When Ruffalo was doing Infinity War, the directors had him shoot different endings, including a death scene. The actor didn’t even know if the Hulk survived until he witnessed the movie at the premiere. Holland admits that it’s hard to shoot with the Russos because he often times doesn’t know who he’s fighting because they’re worried he’ll leak something out. Thankfully for the Russo Brothers, Tom Holland has been sitting the Avengers: Endgame promotional tour out.


Chris Evans has admitted to seeing the first half of Avengers: Endgame, but he has not said anything about reading the entire script. The Russo Brothers may have just opened a big can of worms by revealing Robert Downey Jr. and possibly Chris Evans were able to read the entire Endgame script ahead of anyone else. One could imagine Scarlett Johansson being able to throw some weight around to get in on the script too, but what if the Russos didn’t let her or Chris Hemsworth? There could be some fights amongst Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and their directors in the near future.

Obviously, the less people who know about how Avengers: Endgame pans out, the better it is for everybody. The cast, Scarlett Johansson specifically, have stated how hard it is to keep everything a secret and admitted to getting a form of PTSD from keeping everything hidden. While Johansson is clearly exaggerating, it is truly some pressure that some are better at keeping inside than others. The Russo Brothers are masters and you can check out the interview with them below, thanks to the Rotten Tomatoes YouTube channel.


New Scooby-Doo Design Revealed in Upcoming Scoob Movie?


The new design of Scooby-Doo has reportedly leaked from the upcoming Scoob movie, and it looks a lot like the Scooby we all know and love. The new animated mystery comedy just cast Zac Efron and Amanda Seyfried as Fred and Daphne, respectively and now we might have our first look at the main man himself. The movie has been in development for a number of years, but it looks like things are finally preparing to move forward as Hanna-Barbera plots their own cinematic universe, full of iconic cartoons from the past.

Upon looking at this new image of Scooby-Doo, one would hardly call it a “new” design. The dog looks pretty much like he always has, which is a good thing. For anybody who complains about Scooby not looking any different for his new animated movie, we’ll direct you over to the Sonic the Hedgehog fan base who are currently in a rage tornado over the way their main character looks on the big screen. If Scooby continues to look like our favorite crime solving dog, we’re good to go. No calf implants or weird eyes, thank you.

In addition to Zac Efron and Amanda Seyfried, the new Scooby-Doo animated movie features the voices of Will Forte as Shaggy, Gina Rodriguez as Velma, Tracy Morgan as Captain Caveman, Ken Jeong as Dynomutt, Dog Wonder, and Frank Welker, who will reprise his voice as Scooby, a role he has had since 1969. While it’s great to have Welker on board, there are quite a few fans who are upset Matthew Lillard isn’t on board to play Shaggy. Lillard has voiced the character in a number of animated movies, TV shows, video games, and other forms of media since playing the live-action version of the character on the big screen in 2002.


Unfortunately, Matthew Lillard found out he was replaced on the upcoming Scooby-Doo movie the same way we all did when it was announced. The actor is definitely not happy with the way the casting process went down for the project, which is understandable. A little advanced notice on the part of the studio would have been a classy maneuver. With that being said, we’re going to see the Mystery Inc. crew joining up with other classic Hanna-Barbera characters to take down Dick Dastardly and save the world, which will be adding more voices to the cast.

Scooby-Doo is expected to hit theaters on May 15th, 2020, six years after the movie was officially announced. Since then, there have been a lot of changes behind-the-scenes, but it looks like everything is finally starting to fall into place for the movie. Regardless of who is voicing who, it’s amazing to see Scooby-Doo getting reimagined yet again for a whole new generation of children. Hopefully it will live up to the original cartoon series from the 1960s and beyond. You can check out the first look at the “new” Scooby-Doo below, thanks to Reddit.


John Wick 3 IMAX Poster Invites You Inside the Continental Hotel


John Wick 3: Parabellum hits theaters next month and Lionsgate is starting to push the promotional campaign into overdrive. IMAX has offered up a pretty amazing piece of artwork in a new poster, which kind of looks like the Last Supper, except everybody is trying to be as far away as possible from Keanu Reeves’ John Wick, who is front and center. As for why nobody wants to be around Wick, that may have to do with the $14 million bounty on his head.

In addition to Wick, the IMAX John Wick 3 poster features Sofia, The Adjudicator, Winston, The Director, The Bowery King, and Zero. While the poster art on its own is great, the official John Wick 3 site has an interactive version, which lets users hover over the characters to get a small amount of dialogue from the movie, a short scrap of footage, and a new picture. It’s intuitive and the perfect way to kill some time while we wait for the movie to hit theaters next month. Sadly, Wick’s dog doesn’t have any dialogue in the interactive poster.

Parabellum Tickets are now on sale, which is expected to be the biggest movie of the franchise released thus far. Each installment has made more than the last and the third installment is already tracking to obliterate the previous movie. With that being said, if the box office numbers are good enough, director Chad Stahelski has said he and Keanu Reeves have enough ideas to keep the franchise going forever, but only as long as the fans really want to see it.


The Continental TV series is already in the works, along with a feature-length movie titled Ballerina, which is set with a child assassin. Both projects are currently in development, but Chad Stahelski has been hinting Keanu Reeves could show up in more movies, which would be pretty great if John Wick 3 satisfies fans. That shouldn’t be too hard to do since everybody has been into the trailers released so far and the footage shown at CinemaCon a few weeks ago blew the audience away. Things are definitely looking good for John Wick 3.

John Wick 3 hits theaters on May 17th, which is just around the corner. Avengers: Endgame opens next week and is expected to do some major box office business around the world for a few weeks, which should give the Wick franchise some time to have its time in the sun too. If the initial projections are realistic, the movie will have no problem securing the number one spot at the box office for its debut weekend. With that being said, Disney is pulling out Aladdin the next weekend, which should be able to take down everybody, including John Wick 3, even if the Genie is still scaring people. You can check out the latest IMAX poster below and head over to John Wick Movie site to check out the interactive version.

Iron Man Shows Off His Energy Shield in Avengers: Endgame TV Spot


Black Widow believes Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may have found a chance in the latest Avengers: Endgame TV spot. It’s pretty remarkable how much promotional material Marvel Studios has been putting out for the highly anticipated movie without giving anything away. All of the TV spots in particular have been keeping everything confined to a few scenes, while the full-length trailers haven’t been straying too far. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has revealed that the footage is all from the first 30 minutes or so of the movie, while the Russo Brothers have admitted to using phony footage to misdirect fans.

The Avengers: Endgame TV spot makes it look like Black Widow is recruiting Ronin, aka Clint Barton and Hawkeye, to go battle Thanos, noting they may have found “something,” a “chance… maybe,” although it’s not clear who she is talking to or if the dialogue will even end up in the final cut of the movie. Regardless, it’s an effective piece of marketing like all of the previous teases. We’re staring down a 3-hour and 58-second movie, so there is a lot to take in. That’s the beauty of the promotional material released thus far, we’re only getting a small fraction of what will be shown on the big screen. There is a cool sliver of new footage here that has Iron Man showing off his energy shield as Ronin steps behind it.

In addition to the Avengers: Endgame TV spots, the cast is currently out on the worldwide promotional tour, splitting up in to teams, just like in the movie. Co-director Joe Russo and Chris Hemsworth were recently spotted at Shanghai Disney taking a ride on the Tron rollercoaster and teasing Tom Holland. Thankfully, the cast is rather big, even with half of them Decimated, so they can split up the interviews and appearances.


As for the marketing for Avengers: Endgame, it has been reported Disney and Marvel Studios have spent over $200 million to promote the movie. This is a record for the studio, who weren’t even sure if they really needed to do a full scale marketing campaign. And while we’ll never know, it really seems like they could have put out a few posters one trailer and a release date. Whatever the case may be, the movie isn’t even in theaters and it’s already breaking global box office pre-sale numbers, including in China where the movie sold over a million pre-sale tickets in six hours.

Next week will see the world premiere of Avengers: Endgame and then it finally opens to the public on April 26th. It’s a good time to be a Marvel Cinematic Universe fan, but also a confusing one since Phase 4 is pretty much a mystery at this point. With that being said, it’s all a part of the excitement to see how the studio is going to introduce new characters and keep some of the older ones around. While we wait to see how everything pans out, you can check out the latest Endgame TV spot below, thanks to the Marvel Entertainment YouTube channel.


Chris Hemsworth Is Definitely Down for More Thor After Avengers: Endgame


If Thor manages to escape the events of Avengers: Endgame with his life, Chris Hemsworth is down to play the character again in the future. For the time being, Marvel Studios is being very cagey about their plans beyond the follow-up to Infinity War, which finally hits theaters next week. That said, if they have a need/want for Hemsworth’s services as the God of Thunder in the future, he’s ready and waiting.

The cast and filmmakers have been making the press rounds as of late for Avengers: Endgame. At this point, it’s very unclear who is going to make it out of round two with Thanos alive. Rest assured, there will be some permanent casualties. Despite the unknown getting in the way, during a recent interview, Chris Hemsworth made it clear he’s not dying to hang it up just yet. Here’s what the actor had to say about it.

“I’d play this character for as long as anyone would let me. I’ve loved it so much. But the combination of this many characters in this Phase Three, as Marvel calls it, you’ll never have this interaction with this many people again. Who knows what the future holds and whether they do prequels and sequels or whatever, I’d be open to anything. But right now, this is where we finish up.”

There are, assuming Thor survives, plenty of options. There are going to be plenty of Marvel shows made for the Disney+ streaming service. Maybe Chris Hemsworth could show up in the Loki series alongside Tom Hiddleston? The most likely option seems to be Thor 4, which Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) has already confirmed has been talked about, at least a bit, with Taika Waititi, who helmed Thor: Ragnarok, possibly returning to direct. That would please Hemsworth, as Waititi was a big factor in rejuvenating his enthusiasm for the character.

“When we came into Ragnarok, I was sort of exhausted of what I’d been doing and a little sort of underwhelmed by what I was putting out there, you know? That was no fault of any director or writer, that was me personally. It felt like I’d put myself in a box with what the character could do. So on Ragnarok, it was about breaking all the rules, and kinda going ‘as soon as it feels familiar, do something different’, and Taika [Waititi], the director, had the same vision, and the same, I guess, guts to just roll the dice and [do the] ‘anything goes’ kind of thing. That was so liberating and freeing, you know, to sort of break away who the character was prior.”

Thor: Ragnarok was a critical smash and really helped the character’s solo franchise bounce back in a big way following Thor: The Dark World, which is still largely considered to be one of the worst entries in the MCU to date. Whatever shape it ends up taking, we may very well see more of Chris Hemsworth in this universe in the future. Avengers: Endgame is set to hit theaters on April 26. This news was first reported by MSN.


Godzilla Blasts His Atomic Breath in Stunning King of the Monsters Poster


We have a brand new poster for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. At this point, we’ve seen a couple of full-length trailers and some very meaty TV spots for the highly-anticipated movie. So, it’s unlikely we’re going to get much in the way of new footage ahead of its release next month. But that doesn’t mean the studio isn’t going to continue hammering away at us with all of the monster goodness this sequel has in store. Case in point, this new poster is about as epic as it gets.

This poster actually plays on one of the first images that was released for the sequel to director Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla. We see the king himself standing in the middle of the ocean, looking straight toward the sky and blasting his atomic breath to the heavens. He’s surrounded by ships and military personnel in various aircraft. The whole poster is bathed in blue light and it features a tagline that bodes well for the titular monster in his upcoming big battle.

“Long live the king.”

When the still version of this image was released, director Michael Dougherty described the shot as a key moment and something of a “call to arms.” We know that Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah are all going to be featured in the sequel alongside Godzilla. As I’ve speculated before, based on everything we’ve seen, I would put good money on this essentially turning into a tag-team match between Godzilla and Mothra against Rodan and King Ghidorah. It was also recently revealed that there will be additional, new monsters featured in the movie. As a great man once said, “Let them fight.”

The human cast includes many new additions to the MonsterVerse such as Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), Kyle Chandler (Manchester by the Sea), Bradley Whitford (Get Out), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton). Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) and Ken Watanabe (Inception) both return from the previous movie. As far as we know, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olson won’t reprise their roles.


Luckily, we’re not going to have to wait another five years for more Godzilla on the big screen after this movie arrives. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are already hard at work on the next installment of their MonsterVerse, Godzilla vs. Kong, which will pit the titular beast against the version of Kong we were introduced to in Kong: Skull Island. That entry is being directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch) and is set to hit theaters in May 2020. But first up, we’ve got Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which arrives on May 31. Be sure to check out the new poster from the Godzilla: King of the Monsters Twitter below.

Full Cannes 2019 Movie Lineup Announced, But No Tarantino


The Cannes 2019 lineup has officially been revealed. We’ve been hearing certain titles that were rumored to appear at this year’s prestigious festival, but movie buffs all around the world have been waiting to hear what surprises were in store for this year’s edition. We now know for sure that Jim Jarmusch’s zombie movie The Dead Don’t Die, which feature a huge ensemble that includes Bill Murray and Adam Driver, will officially be unveiled to the world as the opening night selection. Elsewhere, the Elton John biopic Rocketman will make its debut at the festival in France ahead of its theatrical rollout.

There are a few key takeaways with the overall lineup. Some of the major movies that will be featured at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival include Terrence Malick’s German-language wartime drama A Hidden Life, Bong Joon ho’s Parasite and Pedro Almodovar’s Pain and Glory. These are amongst the 19 movies that will be in competition at the festival, all gunning for the coveted Palme d’Or, the highest honor handed out at the esteemed event.

Rocketman, which comes from director Dexter Fletcher and stars Taron Egerton as the music icon, is the most high-profile movie playing this year. Though, that could change. It was expected that Quentin Tarantino’s highly-anticipated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood would make its debut at Cannes this year. The timing would be ideal, as it would be exactly 25 years since he debuted Pulp Fiction at Cannes. However, Tarantino is still in the editing process, but there is still hope he could have the movie, which stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie, ready in time. It’s been reported separately that Greta Gerwig’s Little Women may end up on the roster at a later date if Once Upon a Time in Hollywood doesn’t wind up being ready to go.


Another major takeaway is that 13 of the movies announced today are directed by women. Some of these titles include Little Joe by Jessica Hausner, It Must Be Heaven by Elia Suleiman and The Swallows of Kabul, which was co-directed by Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobé Mévellec. Overall, this represents an uptick in female representation behind the camera for Cannes. However, percentage wise, there were still more female filmmakers represented at festivals such as Sundance this year.

Also of note, there were no Netflix movies, not even Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, announced for the lineup. However, Amazon is debuting two episodes of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Too Old To Die Young, so streaming services will have some representation. The 2019 Cannes Film Festival takes place from May 14 to 25. Be sure to check out the full Cannes lineup below. We’ve also included a video of the announcement.

Simon Pegg’s Slaughterhouse Rulez Is Finally Coming to U.S. Theaters in May


Welcome to Slaughterhouse, an elite boarding school where boys and girls are groomed for power and greatness…until their well-organized world is thrown into a bloody mess. In dark comedy Slaughterhouse Rulez, debuting on Digital and in select theaters May 17 and on DVD June 18 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, pupils and teachers become embroiled in a battle with a hoard of subterranean monsters, unleashed from a gaping frack site sinkhole, wreaking havoc on the school grounds.

Asa Butterfield (TV’s Sex Education, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Finn Cole (TV’s Peaky Blinders) and Hermione Corfield (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) star alongside Michael Sheen (TV’s Good Omens, The Twilight Saga). Simon Pegg (the Mission Impossible and Star Trek franchises) and Nick Frost (Fighting With My Family, Shaun of the Dead) appear in the film and serve as executive producers.

This ancient and ordered world is about to be shaken to its foundations – literally – when a controversial frack site on prized school woodland causes seismic tremors, a mysterious sinkhole and an unspeakable horror is unleashed.  Soon a new pecking order will be established as pupils, teachers and the school matron become locked in a bloody battle for survival.


Simon Pegg and Nick Frost first worked together in Edgar Wright’s seminal sitcom Spaced, but it was the romantic horror comedy Shaun of the Dead that put both on the high road to stardom. Shaun of the Dead was also directed by Edgar Wright, and the trio went onto make what is known as Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, which also includes Hot Fuzz and The World’s End. The duo would later reunite for the sci-fi comedy Paul, though Edgar Wright didn’t join in the fun that time around. And he didn’t help out with Slaughterhouse Rulez either, as he was too busy getting Baby Driver up and running while making the upcoming Sparks documentary.

Slaughterhouse Rulez is executive produced by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Diego Suarez Chialvo and Josephine Rose. The story by Luke Passmore and Crispian Mills & Henry Fitzherbert inspires the screenplay written by Mills and Fitzherbert. The film is produced by Charlotte Walls, co-produced by Huberta Von Liel and directed by Crispian Mills.

Slaughterhouse Rulez has a run time of approximately 104 minutes and is rated R for bloody violence, language throughout, sexual content and some drug use. Sony Home Entertainment hasn’t announced any special features for this upcoming DVD release. They did provide some DVD cover art which you can check out below. We’ve also included the trailer so you get a hint of what this is all about.
