THE HOT LIST

  • Gal Gadot will star in “Ruin,” a Justin Kurzel-directed drama scripted by Matthew & Ryan Firpo.
  • Will Smith & Tom Holland will voice the lead characters in the animated film “Spies in Disguise.”
  • Writer Josh Boone is set to write the big screen adaptation of the Stephen King & Peter Straub novel “The Talisman.”

TRIVIA – STEPHEN KING FILMS
With “IT” continuing its fantastic theater run, the film “Gerald’s Game” recently hitting Netflix, the “Mr. Mercedes” TV series getting a second season, the “Castle Rock” series coming to Hulu soon from Bad Robot, and this recent news of Josh Boone tackling “The Talisman,” I thought we’d honor the King Of Horror himself with some Cinema Squad Trivia on Stephen King Films.

DEVELOP, DITCH, OR TURNAROUND

  • Sony Pictures acquired the rights to adapt “Catan,” the influential board game also known as “The Settlers of Catan,” into a film.
  • Dean Israelite to direct the sci-fi thriller “Unexplained Phenomenon” for Amblin Partners.
  • Linda Cardellini to star in New Line’s upcoming horror film “The Children.”

CLOSING SEGMENT – FAVORITE HALLOWEEN MOVIES
October is here!  So it’s time to dust off those horror classics and scare yourself into the Halloween mood.  My question for the panel: What scary horror movies (or just Halloween movies) do you watch every year to get into the mood for Halloween?  What are your Halloween traditions?
