Labyrinth 2 Gets Doctor Strange Director Scott Derrickson

Labyrinth 2 has found its director, as Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson has been tapped by TriStar Pictures to direct the upcoming sequel. Maggie Levin, who wrote and directed Hulu’s Into the Dark: My Valentine, has also signed on to write the screenplay. Lisa Henson of The Jim Henson Company will produce, with Brian Henson executive producing alongside C. Robert Cargill. Blanca Lisa will also shepherd the project for The Jim Henson Company with Caellum Allen and Nicole Brown supervising for TriStar Pictures.

After finding success in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by directing Doctor Strange, Derrickson was set to also take the reins for the upcoming sequel. Due to creative differences, Derrickson has since departed the project, but it apparently wouldn’t take long for him to find his next major fantasy franchise to be a part of. Because the original Labyrinth is an incredibly popular movie with a large cult following that continues to grow to this day, this would have to be a decision that TriStar isn’t taking lightly, but it seems to be in good hands with Derrickson at the helm. As for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Sam Raimi has reportedly stepped in to direct the MCU sequel.

Released in 1986, the original Labyrinth was directed by the legendary Jim Henson, whose legacy was honored just this month on the 30th anniversary of his passing; Henson and Dennis Lee also conjured up the story with Terry Jones penning the script. George Lucas had also served as an executive producer. The classic tale follows Jennifer Connelly as Sarah, a 16-year-old girl on a quest to rescue her baby brother by reaching the center of an otherworldly maze. The late David Bowie also stars as Jareth the Goblin King, with most of the other characters portrayed by puppets created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

Although Labyrinth would spawn a spin-off comic book series adaptation, the movie was never given a proper movie sequel or reboot – for better or for worse. Word of a follow-up movie began making the rounds a few years back when Nicole Perlman was hired to write the script for the potential sequel in 2016. The following year, Crawl helmer Fede Alvarez had signed on to direct the project with a new creative direction, co-writing the screenplay with Jay Basu. In 2018, Alvarez said that his script was complete, but the project would then stall in development hell in the time since. Time will tell if Scott Derrickson and Levin will be the ones to finally get Labyrinth 2 off the ground.

Of course, as beloved as the original movie is, there’s certainly going to be a large portion of fans feeling apprehensive about seeing a sequel happen. To state the obvious, it would definitely not be the same without Bowie’s involvement. It would also be challenging for any filmmakers to try and match the magic of the first Labyrinth, which might explain why the planned sequel has had a few false starts already. We’ll have to stay tuned for more updates for now. This news comes to us from Deadline.

The High Republic Books Get Delayed by Lucasfilm

The next big thing in a galaxy far, far away has been delayed. Star Wars: The High Republic, an ambitious publishing initiative that was announced by Lucasfilm earlier this year, has been pushed to 2021. The event is set to tell a brand new story within the franchise and will take place across various publishers and mediums, including novels, YA books and comics.

Originally, the first titles were expected to arrive in the fall. Instead, both Charles Soule’s Light of the Jedi and Justina Ireland’s middle-grade novel A Test of Courage will now be released on January 5, 2021. Claudia Gray’s young adult novel Into the Dark has moved to February 2, 2021. Michael Siglain, Creative Director for Lucasfilm Publishing, had this to say.

“‘Always in motion is the future.’ That quote from Yoda is just as relevant today as it was when The Empire Strikes Back was released forty years ago. And while it applies to the uncertainty of the future, it also applies to Star Wars: The High Republic. Star Wars: The High Republic is a massive, interconnected, cross-publisher initiative that will establish an all-new era of Star Wars storytelling.”

“Set 200 years before the events of the prequel trilogy, this mega-story will give readers and Star Wars fans of every age an entry point into The High Republic, a time of galactic renaissance, when the Jedi Knights were at their height. Given these unprecedented times, we have made the decision to move the launch of Star Wars: The High Republic to January 2021 to ensure that the launch is as grand and epic as it deserves to be.”

With the Star Wars movies taking a break until at least December 2022 following the release of The Rise of Skywalker last year, this was intended to be a huge event for Star Wars fans to help fill the void. Whereas many of the canon novels help fill in gaps and could be referred to as side stories, this interconnected storyline was being treated like a new trilogy.

A Star Wars: The High Republic trailer was released when the initiative was first announced in February showcasing how seriously Lucasfilm was taking things. Concept art, new characters, ambitious storylines, a writer’s room full of experienced Star Wars storytellers. This is going to be a massive undertaking. Speaking further, Michael Siglain had this to add.

“I know that waiting isn’t easy. And I know fans have been excited for this since it was first announced. I’m right there with you. I’ve also been waiting to tell this story for years. And while I still can’t say much about it, I can tell you that our story architects, Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel Jose Older, Cavan Scott, and Charles Soule, are continuing to work away on this new era of stories. You’ll hear from them this summer, and when you do, be sure to ask them about ‘The Hero of Hetzal,’ ‘the twins,’ the ‘Blade of Bardotta,’ the Starros and San Tekka clans, and the Storms.”

“You’re not going to believe what they’ve got in store for the Jedi and the Republic. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. I thank you for reading, and I thank you for your understanding and patience. Star Wars: The High Republic has been a true labor of love for us, and we can’t wait for readers to experience the golden age of the Jedi. Until then, and as always, stay strong, stay safe, and may the Force be with you.”

While it has largely been assumed that August’s Star Wars Celebration will be delayed, this latest news adds further fuel to that fire. Pre-orders for the first wave of Star Wars: The High Republic titles are available now. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as further details are made available.

New Last Night in Soho Image Arrives as Edgar Wright’s Thriller Gets Bumped to 2021

New Last Night in Soho Image Arrives as Edgar Wright's Thriller Gets Bumped to 2021

Yet another highly-anticipated movie has been delayed to 2021. Focus Features has announced that Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho has been pushed back a full seven months. The thriller has been set to arrive in theaters on September 25 of this year. Instead, it will now arrive on April 23, 2021.

The current situation in Hollywood has left a number of big movies scrambling to put together a release strategy. Many are hoping to find a theatrical release date elsewhere on the calendar, bet in late 2020 or sometime in 2021. In this case, it seems the move was made out of pure necessity. Taking to Twitter, director Edgar Wright confirmed the news and explained that the movie isn’t quite finished yet. To help ease the sting of the long delay, the filmmaker did share a new photo from his latest. Here’s what Wright had to say.

As for the photo, it shows stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Matt Smith staring longingly into one another’s eyes with an old-school rotary phone in the background. Edgar Wright previously teased that our lead character will get to travel through time in an “abstract” way. So we are going to be dealing with present day, as well as the 60s, it would seem. Wright has been cagey about it, as has the cast. When we spoke to Taylor-Joy earlier this year she simply told us, “Mysterious it shall stay.”

The cast also includes Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit), Michael Ajao (Attack the Block), Synnove Karlsen (Clique), Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Terence Stamp (Superman II) and Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey). Edgar Wright penned the screenplay alongside Krysty Wilson-Cairns (Penny Dreadful). Nira Park, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner serve as producers with Wright. Previously, the filmmaker revealed that influences for the mysterious thriller include Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. Beyond that, we’re probably going to have to wait a while for more details.

This serves as Edgar Wright’s follow-up to his 2017 hit Baby Driver. While Wright had made a name for himself with movies like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, it served as his true commercial breakout, earning $226 million at the global box office. Baby Driver was also nominated for three Oscars. That put a big spotlight on his next project, whatever it ended up being. Unfortunately, given the delay, it means we are likely a long way off from seeing a trailer. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as further details are made available. Be sure to check out the new photo from Edgar Wright’s Twitter.
