Burt Reynolds Died Before Filming His Part in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
When Burt Reynolds was cast in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it seemed like the perfect farewell for the aging Hollywood icon.

James Gunn’s Firing Could Also Affect ‘Avengers 4’
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Marvel placed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on hold in the wake of James Gunn’s firing. Despite the best efforts of his cast and a meeting with Disney head Alan Horn, Gunn won’t be returning to the MCU for the foreseeable future, leaving Vol. 3 — and its affect on the overall MCU narrative — in purgatory.

Robert De Niro in Talks for Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker’
The initial reports regarding the upcoming Joker origin movie from writer / director Todd Phillips noted that the project was loosely inspired by the Martin Scorsese classic King of Comedy — so it makes sense that Scorsese himself was persuaded to executive produce Joker.
