Tweet of the Day, Zack Snyder Is Inevitable edition.

I agree with Sonny: this ain’t gonna happen. But still. The howling would reach the heavens…

Zack Snyder’s REBEL MOON lands at Netflix.

Variety reports REBEL MOON as a “sci-fi saga being created for Netflix that has a definite “Seven Samurai,” Akira Kurosawa vibe to it and actually began life as a grand pitch for a “Star Wars“-based feature nearly a decade ago prior to Disney swallowing up Lucasfilm in 2012.”

Works for me. Obviously, I’m a fan of Snyder’s work. And I’m down with, shockingly. even a half-new science fiction IP. No sense doing the same thing over and over again (he says, as he readies the Kickstarter for the book sequel to FROZEN DREAMS)…

Yeah, there’s apparently a director’s cut to SUCKER PUNCH.

“I always saw it as an indictment of, in some ways, popular culture. I think at the time I was criticized for it being the opposite, like some sort of sexist like, rant, but it was fun to make and I still love it to this day. That was the first time where I really faced like a true radical restructuring of the film for it to be more commercial and there’s a director’s cut of that movie that has yet to be released. I’ll say that out loud.”

So, there’s a prequel of ARMY OF THE DEAD called ARMY OF THIEVES…

…which is casually mentioned here while they were talking about a not-gonna-happen Atom movie made in the PRC*. The two movies are coming out at the same time, I guess? God, I hate what this damn virus has done to movie distribution.

*Well, I’m not gonna see it. I’m trying to cut down on my consumption of products made with slave labor.

Quote of the Day, Zack Snyder Still Has A Few More Birds Left To Flip At Warner edition.

You would think this would eventually stop being funny:

“There is Zack Snyder’s Justice League ‘Justice is Gray’ edition, which is the black and white version, which I’m a huge advocate of and huge admirer of. For me, it’s my favorite version of the movie. I understand that people want to see it in color, and that’s great, and I really want them to enjoy it in color. But for me, the ultimate version is the black and white IMAX version of the movie, which is sort of the penultimate ridiculous movie that shouldn’t exist at its highest most fetishistic level, and I really, really love that. And of course, the black and white version of Justice League will be released on HBO Max, at some point after release, I believe, and you’ll be able to see that somehow on, I don’t know how you’re gonna get to it but that’s the plan.

Snyder Cut to include Deathstroke.

This just doesn’t stop being funny.

Following Jared Leto’s surprising return as Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueCollider brings word that another casting addition has been made for the long-awaited Snyder Cut with Joe Manganiello set to reprise his role as Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke. His return for the reshoots might potentially indicate that Deathstroke will now have a much longer screen time, compared to his brief appearance during the post-credits scene in 2017’s Justice League. Manganiello and Leto will reportedly be joining Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard for the four-episode HBO Max miniseries’ reshoots that are currently underway.

Hrm. Zack Snyder doing zombie heist flick “Army of the Dead.”

Army of the Dead is described as taking place during “a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.” Assuming one takes seriously the premise*, this doesn’t sound like a bad movie concept. I’m curious as to how Snyder’s going to do it.

Out on Netflix, eventually.

*I don’t mean the premise of zombies, generally, although certainly other people might be forgiven for wanting the era of zombie movies to be over. I speak of the premise that people are willing to handle or buy valuables stolen from a zombie outbreak zone. Or that ‘stealing’ even means anything, anymore. Most zombie movies assume the end of global civilization, if only because otherwise the poor shambling things would get mowed down en masse.
