Hocus Pocus 2 adds to its cast. Mark Hamill ruminates on whether or not neighborly proximity could get him a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The cast of Marvel’s Eternals talk up director Chloé Zhao. Plus, a look at the return of Resident Alien and Animaniacs. Spoilers now!
A new casting call from Warner Bros. has Batgirl fans (and writer/creator Gail Simone) convinced the new movie is looking to cast Barbara Gordon’s roommate, Alysia Yeoh.
Deadline reports Adam Randall (Night Teeth) is attached to direct Curfew, “a fun monster movie that harks back to Amblin movies of yore” for Paramount Players. The story is said to concern “a rebellious teenage girl who is sent to stay with her grandmother in a sleepy town whose quirky traditions include a curfew banning anyone from going out at night. However, when the girl ventures out after dark she discovers the murky truth behind the town’s mysterious history.”
Comic Book asked Mark Hamill if he could appear in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie upon learning James Gunn is a close neighbor of his.
I’m a huge fan of James Gunn, there’s no doubt about that. I’ve seen all of his stuff, from Slither through the Guardians movies, and I think he’s great. We touched base because one Sunday night, I discovered he said something on Twitter and I replied back to him, he was answering a question, he said, ‘I suppose I could ask Mark, I hear he’s a neighbor of mine,’ which was news to me. So we went back and forth and it was great fun and I said, ‘I’d love to meet you, not only as a good neighbor, but also as an out-of-work actor.’ I was hardly subtle about it. He came over with his girlfriend and spent the afternoon, we had a great time, but we never talked about me working for him or anything like that. He was just a friend. I’d never put him on the spot like that, so we’ll see what happens. But he doesn’t need me, his movies are really well cast and I just really enjoy watching them.
I’m at the stage in my career where I’ll be offered things and I’ll say, ‘You know who’d be really good in this? Peter MacNicol. I start suggesting other actors because it was hard for me to go to The Machine. It was in Serbia, it was three months or something and I’m one of these people that loves puttering around the house. I have a nice, little, one-acre plot of land, I have my wife and my dogs and my pool, I really don’t need anything else. I’m always saying, ‘I want to take it easy,’ and my agent says, ‘Stop talking like that! Get back to work!’
We’re jumping time a little bit in [Halloween Ends] but part of what we’re exploring is how Laurie and a few of our characters have processed those years between Halloween 2018 and that night’s events and tragedies to Halloween 2022 [tracing the journey] to where they will come to fruition in their psychological aftermath.
