Wonder Woman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Deadpool, and other films have made recent film casting, screenwriting, and director news. These films come from movie studios primarily based in the United States. The castings, screenwriters, and directors are subject to change.

The Death and Life of John F. Donovan

Xavier Dolan has cast Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington opposite Jessica Chastain in…The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, which writer-director Dolan is prepping…Harington will play the titular American movie star, whose correspondence with an 11-year-old actor living with his mother in England is exposed, prompting ill-founded assumptions that begin to destroy his life and career.

Chastain is attached to play the editrix of celebrity-dishing magazine The Gossip, who targets Donovan as his pen pal relationship is exposed in the public eye.

John F. Donovan isn’t intended as a direct jab at the Hollywood machine, his debut English feature explores the impact of the industry’s modern age, mass-media manipulation, and the hardships of fame on artists everywhere.


Fox is closing a deal with Ryan Reynolds for a feature on Deadpool…The film is being directed by Tim Miller…Miller has been developing the film for several years, from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick…When Reynolds made that first appearance as Deadpool, also known as Wade Wilson, he was a smart-mouthed mercenary with terminal cancer who undergoes military experiments in an attempt to replicate Wolverine’s mutant healing factor. He comes away with the ability to heal quickly — but for the price of being indestructible, he is rendered severely scarred. His acerbic attitude remains, though, earning him the nickname “The Merc with a Mouth.”
