The Fast and the Furious star is teaming with Mudbound writer Virgil Williams for a boxing drama over at NBC.

THR reports that the drama, titled Crushers Club will be an hourlong show about a struggling boxing gym, which also serves as a second home for kids in one of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods.  

Williams will write the script and executive produce with Diesel through his One Race Television banner. Williams previously worked for six seasons as a writer-producer on Criminal Minds. He is also the co-writer on the upcoming Netflix film Mudbound, which many expect to be an awards season contender. 

Crushers Club is one of three projects on One Race TV’s slate this season, the other being a reboot of Miami Vice, also at NBC, and a reboot of Get Christie Love at ABC.

Ridley Scott Will Reshoot All Of Kevin Spacey’s Scenes in ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD with Christopher Plummer

We are seeing something that has never happened before. Director Ridley Scott and studio executives have decided to remove Kevin Spacey from the movie All The Money In The World, which has already completed shooting. Deadline Hollywood broke the story that actor Christopher Plummer will replace Spacey in the role of J. Paul Getty. It seems like a tall order considering that Scott is determined to keep the film’s December 22nd release date. Re-shoots of the key scenes are expected to commence immediately.

The cast and crew of the film, and Sony Pictures, all agreed to re-shoot all of Spacey’s scenes, with Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams. The decision comes after they decided to pull the film from the AFI Festival when sexual assault allegations against Spacey might affect the film that Scott dropped everything to direct. They were also concerned that because so many people worked hard and did not deserve to see the film fail because of the scandal. 

It won’t  be an impossible task to reshoot and have the film ready for Christmas mostly because Spacey only worked about eight to ten days on the film. But his character is a vital presence even if much of the action in the thriller involves the frantic efforts of the kidnapped heir’s mother Gail Harris (Williams), and Getty’s advisor (Wahlberg) to free the youth. The nightmare escalated after the family received his severed ear as proof the kidnappers were going to kill him if the money wasn’t delivered.

With the recent tsunami of sexual assault and harassment allegations that are flooding Hollywood, it’s inspiring to see filmmakers fight for what is morally right.

During the production of Gladiator, Scott was forced to deal with late re-shoots following the death of Oliver Reed. But those circumstances were a lot different than the decision that was made today on All The Money In The World.

The Duffer Bros. Promise That STRANGER THINGS Season 3 Will Be Weirder Than Previous Seasons

the-duffer-brothers-promise-that-stranger-things-3-will-be-weirder-than-previous-seasons-social.jpg

The Duffer Brothers are sharing more about what fans can hope for in the upcoming Stranger Things Season 3. In a recent interview with IndieWire the brothers shared how they are preparing. Ross Duffer says:

 “I love the early days of seasons, because you are filled with all of these possibilities. We are having a lot of fun just bouncing around cool ideas.”

The series creators spoke about the show’s future explaining why they can’t reveal the ’80s references that we’ll see next season and why they are excited about their young cast growing up. They hinted that a third season will focus more on character development than on expanding the scope of the show. Matt explains:

 “It’s not necessarily going to be bigger in scale. What I am really excited about is giving these characters an interesting journey to go on.”

Season 3 technically hasn’t gotten an official greenlight, but we know it’s going to happen and they are still trying to think ahead. Ross says:

“It’s really just Matt and me working with some writers and figuring out where it’s going to go, something almost weirdly more intimate and a lot of fun.”

Youth is one of the reasons fans love the series and many fans are concerned with how the Duffers will keep the show as appealing when the young actors are growing up so fast in between seasons. This is how the Matt responded:

“We are leaning into it. I love the fact that they’re going through adolescence.”

They say they see the casts growth as a good and natural change for the show, because of all the character depth they can explore. Adolescence “is a very dramatic part of your life, and drama is good! So I think it’s good it forces the show to evolve,” said Matt Duffer. After all, everybody loves a good coming-of-age story.

They also shared the challenges that come along with essentially making a 9-Hour Movie: “We are still trying to figure out how to tell an eight or nine-hour story,” said Matt Duffer in regards to the challenge of writing binge-watchable long-form narratives. Ross adds:

“Maybe we will get it just right when ‘Stranger Things’ is done. The final season.”

Stranger Things 2 is streaming now on Netflix.

Hilarious Behind-The-Scenes Video Focuses on The Stunts From Hulu’s Sci-Fi Series FUTURE MAN

The Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg-Produced action comedy Future Man is set to premiere next week on Hulu. We already saw a great trailer, and now we’re getting a look at a new behind-the-scenes video. The featurette focuses on the wild stunts in the show about time-traveling warriors. They recruit a fish-out-of-water character played by Josh Hutcherson.

Future Man follows a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who travels through time to prevent the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.

Nowadays so many productions are visual effects-focused, but we can tell this production is putting the practical effects first. This series looks like it will be a ton of fun!

Future Man hits Hulu on November 14.

New STAR WARS Novel Claims That Luke Skywalker Can Pull Down Star Destroyers With The Force

maxresdefault.jpg

We know that Luke Skywalker was one badass Jedi by the conclusion of the original trilogy. But apparently, that was just the tip of the iceberg. In Ken Liu’s new Star Wars novel, fans will be treated to a series of myths and tall-tales involving Mark Hamill’s Jedi Master. The Legends of Luke Skywalker is available for purchase now, and it looks to include some new insight into Luke’s breathtaking abilities.

Liu’s book is considered canon, but all of its stories are told through the lens of a cargo crew bound for Canto Bight – the same city in which Finn and Rose begin their “dark mission” during Star Wars: The Last Jedi

YouTube channel Star Wars Theory recently uncovered some new details from Liu’s novel which reveal that Jedi Luke is able to bring down entire Star Destroyers using only the Force. Remember all those derelict wrecks scattered across the Jakku desert? Turns out Luke may have been the one responsible for bringing the Empire’s fleet out of the sky.

In the story, an imperial gunner on a Star Destroyer recalls the terrifying moment he sees a hologram of Luke just before the ship crashes out of the sky. In the book he says:

“The bridge went dark. The overhead lights, the view screens, the blinking lights on the banks of consoles. Even the emergency lighting strips on the floor. All around us was the darkness of space…I saw that the bridge windows were rapidly filling with expanding columns of energy… A jolt, as if the entire Star Destroyer had been picked up by a giant hand and slammed against the ground. The ship slowed, drifted, stopped and then the stark lifeless surface of Jakku swung into view, filling the windows, and we fell, we fell.

This gives us a glimpse into one major event that Luke was involved in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. And though it is hard to imagine the once Farmboy Luke pulling a giant metal piece of pizza out of the sky, this may give us a glimpse into what we may see from Luke in The Last Jedi.

This story reminds me a lot of a sequence from the Lucasarts Video Game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Below, I embedded a clip of Starkiller bringing down a Star Destroyer with the Force, now just picture Luke in his place pulling down ship after ship in the battle for Jakku
