Paramount Finally Cancelling World War Z 2

Paramount Finally Cancelling World War Z 2

After long experience of tugging in the development process, the fate of World War Z 2 was finally determined. Apart from the joining of the cold-handed filmmaker David Fincher as a director, Paramount has now canceled the sequel which is again starring Brad Pitt. As for differences of opinion between Fincher and the studio in terms of budget, it was allegedly the cause of the zombie invasion film failed.

According to the Playlist report, Fincher wants to work on World War Z 2 with a more economical budget than the first film, which is known to have a budget of $ 190 million. However, the investigator said, the Collider source claimed that Fincher’s desired budget was actually above $ 190 million. Because Fincher insisted on his budget, Paramount finally suspended the pre-production process, and now Fincher is no longer involved in the project.

Studio is referred to as the objection to Fincher’s budget not only because the film is based on R, but also because lately studios lacked financially successful films. It was recorded in 2018, only A Quiet Place and Mission: Impossible – Fallout which became hits from Paramount, and the rest like Annihilation and Bumblebee counted as mediocre. That’s why studios will be more selective in pasting future film projects.

World War Z 2 is not the first major film to be canceled directed by Fincher, as in the past he almost masterminded Mission: Impossible 3 and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This filmmaker who is known as an idealist wants to join World War Z 2 after being lobbied by Pitt, who has collaborated with Fincher three times in Se7en, Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The Fincher is the second director to leave World War Z 2 following J.A. Bayona.

FYI, World War Z tells the story of former UN investigator, Gerry Lane, who traveled the world to find a solution to overcome the zombie outbreak. Directed by Marc Foster, the film adaptation of Max Brooks’s novel is widely praised for its realistic depiction of the story in presenting the story of a zombie outbreak. With a budget of up to $ 190 million, the film has earned a total income of $ 540 million.

Meanwhile, other information also states, there is still a chance for World War Z 2 to be made, if the studio finds a director who is in line with their vision. Especially since Pitt is reportedly satisfied with the film script, of course this further increases the potential of World War Z 2 to continue.

Collaborating with Marvel TV, Netflix itself presents a series of superheroes with approaches and stories that are darker and more mature, compared to the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Instead of being a weakness, the concept of “dark and gritty” carried by Netflix actually strengthens the quality of their series, so that there are those who become masterpieces like the third Daredevil season.

This approach is also applied to The Defenders (which also do not continue), which basically The Avengers ala Netflix with members include Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A similar concept is also maintained to work on the Punisher series which highlights the antihero Marvel’s brutal actions.

Meanwhile, no one knows for sure why Netflix retired Daredevil and other Marvel series, while watching their superheroes is still popular and has a large fan community. But many people believe, Netflix’s decision has something to do with the launch of Disney +, the Disney streaming service.

The waiting of Stephen King’s fans for the Doctor Sleep adaptation film is sure to take place faster. Because, Warner Bros. recently advancing the release date of The Shining sequel from the previous January 24, 2020, now 8 November 2019.

As if to make sure this sequel can be as solid as the first film that was worked on by legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, the studio also entrusted the director’s stick to Mike Flanagan, known as a talented horror filmmaker. Doctor Sleep is known to have completed the filming process since December 2018, involving several famous chords / actresses such as Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and Jacob Tremblay.

Frist Trailer ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’

Remember when Fast & Furious was a racing film? So fast time passes and so many things change. After almost twenty years, this franchise has been transformed into many things, but the most important is to become a super macho film that defies logic and the laws of physics. Now, entering the 9th film, it becomes a film where Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham beat people.

Or at least that’s how it looks from the first Fast & Furious Presents trailer: Hobbs & Shaw.

The film no longer focuses on Dom (Vin Diesel) and his family, but rather agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and former villain Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). The last time we met at The Fate of the Furious, they seemed to have fun chemistry. Now both are asked to help overcome the threat of a terrorist named Brixton (Idris Elba). Their response when they were told to work together?

“Impossible, he’s a bastard!” they shouted to each other.

But they have to join because the enemy this time has super powers. In the trailer, we see Idris Elba fired with a kind of laser beam that can make his muscles stronger.

“I am human evolution. Bulletproof. Super humans,” he said.

We will also witness the standard action of the film Fast & Furious like the sequence of cars that jump from the building. There was also a comical action where Shaw tricked Hobbs when they were about to jump from skyscrapers. A portion of the duration is also given to Vanessa Kirby who always looks worried. But most of these trailers are about Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham who beat people.

The film itself was worked on by a director who used to make films about hajar-beat up people. The director is David Leitch, who previously gushed John Wick, Atomic Blonde, and Deadpool 2.
