Hellboy, Wonder Woman 2Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and other films and TV shows have made recent casting news.

These productions come from studios based primarily in the United States. The castings are subject to change.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been officially confirmed for a role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The news was broken by director Rian Johnson, who has cast the Snowden star in all of his films to date. While Levitt’s involvement has been rumored for some time now, it was only confirmed when Johnson announced it at a Q&A event for the film in Japan.

Wonder Woman 2

Patty Jenkins is set to return as director for Wonder Woman 2. Jenkins, of course, helmed the first film, which proved to be massively successful with critics and audiences alike and turned a hefty profit for Warner Bros. As a result of her originally being contracted for just one movie, the Monster director was able to secure a more lucrative deal with the studio for the sequel.


Daniel Dae Kim may replace Ed Skrein in the planned Hellboy reboot.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Mike Myers is in the middle of negotiations to play a role in Bohemian Rhapsody.

Star Wars: Episode IX

Rian Johnson indicates that he may not direct Star Wars: Episode IX.

Falling Water

Brittany Allen will play a recurring role in the second season of Falling Water.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
