The Babysitter 2 Is Happening at Netflix with McG Returning to Direct

Netflix is doubling down on their teen-driven slasher flicks, as The Babysitter 2 is happening. Much like any other major studio, Netflix has produced its fair share of horror movies. They're often cheaper to produce than other types of eye-catching content and, when they hit, they can do big business. Or, in this case, a whole lot of people decide to stream the service's latest horror offering, as opposed to old episodes of The Office. In any event, enough people streamed 2017's The Babysitter to justify a sequel.

According to a new report, director McG is returning to helm the sequel. Exact details, in terms of where they intend to take the story, are virtually non-existent for the time being. Casting is currently underway, with production expected to kick off in October, if all goes well. Behind the scenes, the script is being penned by Dan Lagana, who served as an

The Upcoming G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes Movie Will Reportedly Start Shooting This Fall

It looks like Paramount Pictures and Hasbro are getting ready to move forward on their next G.I. Joe movie, and this one will focus on none other than Snake Eyes.

According to HollywoodNorth.buzz, G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes is supposed to start shooting this fall in Vancouver. They say that that the movie will shoot from October 15th to December 9th. Apparently the crew members already set up at the location are going around wearing G.I. Joe production shirts.

Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast and The Huntsman: Winter's War) was previously hired to write the script. We have no idea what the story for the film will tell, but I do like the fact that Snake Eyes is getting his own movie. He’s a fan favorite G.I. Joe character and has been the best part of the two previous G.I. Joe films.

Iron Fist’s Jessica Henwick and Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien will serve as the headliners for sci-fi film Monster Problems.

Monster Problems, a sci-fi film project in the pipeline at contemporary-aimed studio subdivision Paramount Players, appears to be putting a romantic spin on the crowded post-apocalyptic genre.

The film will be directed by Michael Matthews (Five Fingers for Marseilles), working off a screenplay by Matthew Robinson, updated from a previous screenplay by Brian Duffield.

Podtalk: Director Robert Schwentke of German War Film ‘The Captain’

Chicago – Films about the Nazis and the German military during World War II are numerous… except for the ones with a pure German perspective. “The Captain,” directed by Robert Schwentke (“R.I.P.D.”), is based on a true story about a German army deserter who finds a Captain’s uniform, and decides to ride out the waning days of the war with the power of an officer.

Max Hubacher is Willi Herold, the deserter, and his icy cold performance is one of the highlights of “The Captain.” Herold will stop at nothing to survive against the constant chase on the run from the German army, and once he gets a taste of officer power he is not about to let go. His journey takes him to a prison holding other deserters, and his decisions there are based on getting the assignment done quickly and to his larcenous advantage. When complications arise there,

Robert Schwentke Interview: Making ‘The Captain’ a World War II Movie ‘Without a Moral Manual’

  • HeyUGuys
After spending the last fifteen years making big budget Hollywood movies like Red, Flight Plan, Insurgent and Allegiant, filmmaker Robert Schwentke returns to his native Germany for his new film The Captain.

Based on a fascinating and disturbing true story, the film follows German soldier Willi Herold (played by Max Hubacher) in the final weeks of World War II as he’s being chased and shot at, presumably having deserted the army. He comes across an abandoned Nazi captain’s uniform and soon makes use of the authority he commands while wearing it. Eventually finding himself visiting a prison camp for army deserters and claiming to be following orders from the Führer himself, Herold uses the power his uniform wields to horrifying effect. Herold went on to become known as the Executioner of Emsland.

Ahead of the film’s Us release on Friday 27th July, James Kleinmann spoke to Robert Schwentke.

Film Review: ‘The Captain’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘The Captain’
Hollywood will be hard-pressed to come up with a more horrifying film this year than writer-director Robert Schwentke’s “The Captain.” Schwentke is perhaps best known to American audiences as the filmmaker behind such hit-and-miss shoot-’em-up movies as “Red,” “R.I.P.D.,” and “Insurgent,” which makes this return to his native Germany a rather surprising departure.

Shot in black and white and set in the final days of World War II, “The Captain” is every bit as violent as those movies, and twice as tense, but it’s a different beast entirely: a period piece — one with a chilling contemporary relevance — about Willi Herold, a kid just 19 years old, who found a Nazi officer’s uniform, assumed the role, and self-righteously went on to murder an estimated 170 of his countrymen. Herold was a real person, and the film assumes a passing respect for history, but it’s hardly the kind of penitent,

Official Us Trailer for German Film 'The Captain' with Max Hubacher

"With all the deserters, you never know who's in the uniform." Music Box Films has debuted an official Us trailer for The Captain, a German film from last year about a deserter who discovers new powers when he is mistaken for a captain. After years making big Hollywood blockbusters, filmmaker Robert Schwentke returned to Germany to make this film. It's a play on the Stanford Prison Experiment, where someone with power suddenly takes this power further than thought possible. Set in WWII, the film is about a German army deserter, played by Max Hubacher, who changes his ways when he suddenly has more power. The cast includes Milan Peschel, Frederick Lau, Bernd Hölscher, Waldemar Kobus, Alexander Fehling, Samuel Finzi, and Wolfram Koch.

G.I. Joe Snake Eyes Movie Gets New Release Date

Mike Cecchini Joseph Baxter Jun 10, 2019

A Snake Eyes solo movie is the most exciting G.I. Joe movie news we've heard in quite some time.

The G.I. Joe franchise hasn't had it easy on the big screen. The 2009 movie was, frankly, awful. But 2013's G.I. Joe: Retaliation was tremendous fun, enhanced by Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock, a Bruce Willis performance where he almost looks like he wants to be there for a few minutes, and an absolutely brilliant multi-colored ninjas on a mountainside stunt fight that showcased Snake Eyes in all his glory. That alone is worth the price of admission.

But despite that, G.I. Joe 3 is taking its time getting off the ground. The project certainly exists, and, last we heard, it's slated for a March 27, 2020 release. In the meantime, Paramount isn't about to sleep on this franchise, though, as they've just put a G.I. Joe spinoff movie
