Deadline is reporting that a Titanic reunion is in the works as Kate Winslet has signed on to James Cameron’s Avatar universe that has recently started principle photography for back to back movies to be released in Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. Winslet will play a character by the name of Ronal, with no word on if it’s a mo-cap Na’vi character or human character.

THR reports that Jared Leto has signed on to play legendary Playboy Founder and icon Hugh Hefner in the biopic about his life from producer-director Brett Ratner. The project now enters early development, in a film Ratner has wanted to make since 2007, when it was initially set up at Universal Pictures with Robert Downey Jr. once attached to the role. No release date has been set.


According to Deadline, the long in development Maleficent 2 is finally back on track. The trade reports that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales co-director Joachim Rønning is in talks to direct the sequel, with Angelina Jolie on board to reprise her role.

According to Variety Jenny Slate is in negotiations to join Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed in Sony’s Venom movie. Sources for the trade report that Slate will play a scientist in the movie, but not much else is known about her role, or the plot, at this time. Venom is set to hit theaters on Oct. 5, 2018.

THR is reporting that Lucifer showrunner Joe Henderson has been hired to write a reboot of the 1986 kids sci-fi adventure Flight of the Navigator. The Jim Henson Company is also on board to produce the feature, which is now set up to be distributed by Lionsgate. The movie tells the story of a 12-year-old boy who is abducted by a UFO and reappears eight years later at the exact same age and with no memories of what happened.
