With Fast and Furious 8 set to go into production later this year for an April 2017 release date, actor Vin Diesel has taken to his Instagram account to announce the dates for the next two installments of the franchise after that. Fast and Furious 9 will arrive on April 19, 2019 and Fast and Furious 10 will then hit theatres on April 2, 2021.
Speaking of the Fast and Furious franchise, series co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has just taken to his Instagram account to reveal this picture announcing the writers of his upcoming video game adaptation Rampage! In the post he says the following:
“Cool news we just hired Carlton Cuse & Ryan Condal (creators of Colony) to write our big screen adaptation of Rampage for New Line. Carlton also wrote San Andreas for us, so he excels at writing big scale with family and heart as the anchor. If you were a fan of the video game like I was, then you KNOW how bad ass and fun this movie can be. I’ll try not to screw it up . Shooting begins late this summer. #RAMPAGE * pictured is the Rampage team (same team who brought you San Andreas) Director Brad Peyton (with the dope fade haircut), producer Beau Flynn (with the Grizzly Adams beard), Carlton Cuse (the constant intellectual with glasses) and some bald tattooed brown man who occasionally smiles.”

Sony has just released the first trailer for the upcoming Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead. The film is the directorial debut of actor Don Cheadle who also stars as the title character in the film along with Ewan McGregor. The film tells the story of a few lost days in the life of Miles Davis (Cheadle), the virtuoso, fighter and genius, as he bursts out of his silent period, conspires with a Rolling Stone writer (McGregor) to steal back his music, and relives the years he had with his great love, Frances Taylor.
As was briefly discussed in yesterday’s live Twitter question segment, it was announced that actress Elizabeth Banks has been cast to play the villainous role of Rita Repulsa in the upcoming Power Rangers movie. The screenplay for the film is writen by X-Men First Class and Thor writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller and is currently scheduled to hit theatres on March 24th 2017.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is busy getting ready for Vol. 2 which starts shooting just one week from today, but took the time to release this new image of cast at rehearsals prepping for the new film. In the image you can see Gunn, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Gunn’s brother Sean Gunn, who also plays the Ravager Kraglin, as the stand-in for Rocket Raccoon.

Julie Soto writes: Hi Movie Talk crew! I’m a huge fan of the Coen brothers and almost all of their movies so you can imagine my excitement about Hail, Caesar! I was just wondering if you guys have had a chance to see the film and if so, what did you think of it? Thank you and keep bringing on the filthy! (Love you Ashley!)
Tom Rourke writes: I watched a video recently about the Oscar categories and one of the things the video suggested was having an award for Best Ensemble Cast. I’m not sure whether it would be a good idea but there are some films, such as Spotlight, in which the entire cast are so good together that for me it doesn’t seem like one particular actor shines over another. At the same time the introduction of an award like this could result in a situation where the academy are giving out too many Oscars, thus devaluing their importance.
