Freeze frame; Emilia Clarke; Dave Bautista of Guardians of the Galaxy; Keanu Reeves on Netflix; Zach Snyder to direct The Fountainhead
Emilia Clarke looks set to follow in the footsteps of her Game of Thrones co-stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. She is getting a tattoo to commemorate her time on the hit show. However, the tattoo is going to be a bit more literal than her co-stars’. She said during an appearance on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan that she was getting a Targaryen-themed brand to memorialise her eight-season run on the drama. “I’m going to get a dragon right here, kind of flying away,” she said pointing at her wrist. “So I think that’s cool. Like a little kind of, you know, peace out.” It is not yet certain which of her three dragon “children” she’s planning to model the tattoo on.
Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista will star in Bold Films’ action-comedy Dogtown. The film is based on Jason Pearson’s comic books, Body Bags, and Kyle Ward has been hired to pen the script, reported Variety. Set in the fictional city of Terminus, Georgia, the story follows a father-daughter team of assassins-Mack Delgado, aka Clownface, and his overzealous teenage daughter, Panda, who constantly seeks her father’s respect and permission to go out
on jobs with him and his long-time body-bagging partner.
Keanu Reeves and Daniel Dae Kim have joined the cast of Netflix’s romantic comedy Always Be My Maybe. The films stars Ali Wong and Randall Park in the lead roles, reported Variety. Wong and Park feature as childhood sweethearts who have a falling out and do not speak for 15 years. They reconnect as adults when Wong’s character — a celebrity chef opening a restaurant in San Francisco — runs into Park’s character, a happily struggling musician still living at home working for his dad. Netflix will release Always Be My Maybe in 2019.
Filmmaker Zack Snyder has revealed that his next directorial venture is The Fountainhead, an adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 1943 novel. The director, 52, made the revelation in response to a fan question on the social-media site Vero. The Fountainhead, Rand’s first novel, was made into a 1949 movie starring Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal directed by King Vidor. Snyder’s last film was Justice League, the Warner Bros/DC tentpole that he directed and produced with wife Deborah Snyder. Joss Whedon came aboard to do re-shoots and postproduction on that film after the Snyders quit the project following the death of their daughter.
