    My guess is the second film makes a bit over a billion and the third maybe a bit under it unless the previous is very well received then any further sequels don't happen.

    Christian Bale in Talks to Join Chris Hemsworth in THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER

    [​IMG]

    This casting news is hitting like a thunderbolt. Christian Bale is in talks to join Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Character details are being kept in Odin's Vault.

    Chris Hemsworth is set to reprise his role as the God of Thunder, with Natalie Portman back in the mix, with her character Jane Foster taking on the mantle of Thor for this installment. Taika Waititi will return to the director's chair following 2017's Thor: Ragnarok, with Tessa Thompson also expected to return as Valkyrie.

    Collider first reported the news of Bale's casting.

    The actor played Bruce Wayne/Batman in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knighttrilogy, considered a high-water mark in comic book filmmaking. Bale has avoided franchises since the series concluded with 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, though he for a time flirted with a role in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

    The actor is a four-time Oscar nominee and is currently in the awards season conversation with Fox's Ford v Ferrari. Bale won a best supporting actor Oscar for 2010's The Fighter.

    Thor: Love and Thunder is set to open Nov. 5, 2021.

    KNIVES OUT Sequel in the Works, Story to Center on Daniel Craig's Detective Character

    [​IMG]

    As Knives Out concludes yet another strong weekend at the box office, writer-director Rian Johnson is already working on a follow-up to his hit original whodunit, lining up a potential franchise for Lionsgate.

    Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter at Lionsgate's pre-Golden Globes party on Saturday night that he was already developing a sequel centered on Daniel Craig's Southern detective Benoit Blanc investigating a new case. The filmmaker added that he was eager to make the pic quickly, ideally in the next year.

    Johnson's producing partner Ram Bergman added that Craig was eager to reprise the role. "Daniel had so much fun doing it, and he wants to do more," he said.

    Lionsgate and MRC's Knives Out, made for a reported $40 million and boasting a star-studded cast including Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer and Toni Collette, became a shining beacon for original films in a 2019 box office dominated by sequels and franchises. It is up for three Golden Globe awards on Sunday: best comedy/musical picture, best comedy/musical actor for Craig and best comedy/musical actress for Ana de Armas. (MRC shares a parent company, Valence Media, with The Hollywood Reporter.)

    Lionsgate has not officially greenlit a Knives Out sequel, but given the film's $247 million haul worldwide, it could be the beginning of a lucrative franchise for the studio and for Craig as he wraps up his stint portraying James Bond in the upcoming No Time to Die. Joe Drake, chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, told THR at Saturday's party that he is eager to read a script.

    Johnson, who directed 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is also developing a new Star Wars trilogy, but those plans have slowed as Disney and Lucasfilm figure out the next steps in the franchise following December's The Rise of Skywalker, which concludes the saga that began with 1977's A New Hope.

    That would be a huge pick up, but I still have no interest in seeing it because the whole premise sounds dumb.

    MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7 and 8 Cast Nicholas Hoult, Reportedly as a Villain

    [​IMG]

    Filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie continues to round out his cast for his pair of upcoming Mission: Impossible movies. Actor Nicholas Hoult has signed up for the franchise, McQuarrie revealed on Instagram Thursday, writing "care to raise a little hell?" Hoult responded, "Though why stop at a little?"

    Hoult, who sources say will be playing the villain, joins a cast that includes Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Hayley Atwell, Shea Whigham and Guardians of the Galaxy star Pom Klementieff.

    Hoult has plenty of genre movie experience, having starred as Beast in four X-Men films as well as in 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road and the 2013 zombie romance movie Warm Bodies. He also played Lord of the Ringsauthor J.R.R. Tolkien in the biopic Tolkien last year, as well as in the 2018 awards contender The Favourite. He joins the Mission: Impossible franchise months after coming in as runner up to play the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman.

    McQuarrie will write and direct two more Mission: Impossible films after previously helming 2015's Rogue Nation and 2018's year's Fallout, which is the series' biggest movie to date with $791.1 million globally. Paramount and Skydance has dated the next Mission: Impossible film for July 23, 2021, while the eighth installment will be released on Aug. 5, 2022.
