Today In Reboots and Reborquels: Evil Queens, a 'Crow' Shakeup, and More Anna Kendrick
There are just too many sequels and reboots announced daily for us to spend too many words on each. Here’s what happened today in Franchise Land.
—Maleficent is getting a sequel, and Linda Woolverton, who wrote the original, is attached. Angelina Jolie hasn’t officially signed on, but she’s being kept “in the loop.”
—Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston has dropped out as the lead of the remake of The Crow, reportedly due to scheduling issues. Forest Whitaker has joined the cast, which is never a bad thing for a movie. Ever.
—This picture was all it took for everyone to know Anna Kendrick is coming back for Pitch Perfect 3.
Kay Cannon and Rebel Wilson have also signed on. No word yet on whether Elizabeth Banks will be directing.
