“Star Trek 4” Negotiations Halt For Chris Pine and Hemsworth

Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth are no longer boldly going where no person has gone before.

The two actors were in negotiations to star in Star Trek 4 but sources say that talks between the two actors and the companies making the new installment, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, have fallen apart, with both sides walking away from the table.

Dealmaking with other returning castmembers — including Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and John Cho — was expected to follow.

Pine was due to reprise his role as iconic sci-fi hero Captain Kirk, which he has inhabited for three movies, while Hemsworth was to have played his father in a time-traveling adventure. (Hemsworth played the role in the prologue in the 2009 movie that rebooted the franchise.)

The deal points came down to the usual suspect: money. Pine and Hemsworth, among Hollywood’s A-list when starring in DC or Marvel movies, are said to be asking the studios to stick to existing deals. Paramount, according to insiders, contends that Trek is not like a Marvel or Star Wars movie and is trying to hold the line on a budget.

The actors, according to sources, insist they have deals in place and that the studios are reneging on them, forcing them to take pay cuts as they try to budget a movie that is following a mediocre performer.

Pine, at least, has had a deal in place for several years. The actor, now a key player in the Wonder Woman franchise, signed up for a fourth movie when he made his deal for 2016’s Star Trek Beyond. Hemsworth has been attached to Trek 4 since Paramount, then run by the previous regime headed by Brad Grey, announced the fourth installment in 2016, although his exact status remains murky.

The studio, however, is backing its budget tough talk with past performance numbers. The last movie, Star Trek Beyond, grossed only $343 million worldwide on a budget of $190 million. In fact, one insider says the companies lost money on the movie.

It is unclear what the next step is for Trek 4. The project could recast Kirk and his father. Or perhaps the two sides could come back to the table.

Either way, Paramount and Skydance insiders say the movie, also produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, remains a priority development and is not being put on hold. Adding a veneer of enterprise to the project is that for the first time in the franchise history, a female director, S. J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, Succession), is sitting in the captain’s chair.

Emma Thompson Returning For “Men In Black” Reboot

Emma Thompson is returning to the world of Men In Black.

The actress is joining Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in Sony’s Men in Black reboot that is set to begin production this month in London.

Liam Neeson and Kumail Nanjiani are also part of the big-name cast, as is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom bad guy Rafe Spall and star street-dancing duo Les Twins, aka Laurent Nicolas Bourgeois and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois,

Plot and character details are largely being kept secret, but it is known that Thompson will reprise the role of Agent O, the chief of the Men in Black organization.

The spinoff featuring alien-fighting and world-saving heroes is designed to relaunch the Men in Black film franchise — which began with the 1997 original and included sequels in 2002 and 2012 — on a bigger and more global scale.

Fate of the Furious filmmaker F. Gary Gray is directing the project, which was penned by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The studio has the film dated for a June 14, 2019, release. (Source)

“Avengers: Infinity War” Passes $2 Billion Mark

After smashing the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time, as well as becoming the fastest movie to reach $1 billion, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is celebrating another box office success today as the movie becomes only the fourth film in history to reach $2 billion worldwide.

Domestically, Infinity War has pulled in $656.1 million and continues to pull in the cash, coming fifth in the chart this past weekend. However, it still trails Black Panther, which has earned $699.4 million in North America – Marvel’s biggest domestic haul.

Internationally, the superhero blockbuster has $1.346 billion for a grand total of $2.002 billion and counting. That’s the most for any Marvel movie (and any superhero movie) and will likely end up as the highest-grossing film not directed by James Cameron, a spot currently held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens on $2.06 billion.

Avatar remains the highest-grossing movie of all time on $2.78 billion, with Titanic following on $2.18 billion. (Source)

Liam Neeson Joins “Men In Black” Spinoff

Liam Neeson is in negotiations to join Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in Sony’s Men in Black spinoff.

Fate of the Furious filmmaker F. Gary Gray is directing the project, written by Iron Man screenwriters Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. The studio has the film dated for a June 14, 2019, release.

Hemsworth and Thompson are not playing the same alien-fighting and world-saving characters portrayed by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the initial film trilogy. The new movie is set in the same onscreen world, however.

Plot details and the characters Hemsworth and Thompson will portray are being kept secret, but on the Neeson front, it is known that he will play the head of the Men in Black organization in London, where the story begins.

Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, who produced the original movies, are back as producers, while Steven Spielberg is returning as executive producer. (Source)

Original “Avengers” Get Matching Tattoos

How did five of the original big screen Avengers mark the release of Avengers: Infinity War? By getting matching tattoos of the superhero team’s logo from New York-based inker, Josh Lord, and by jointly giving Lord a rather less steady-handed version of that tat.

“Five of the original six Avengers got a tattoo,” Robert Downey Jr. exclusively tells EW. “And the sixth was the tattoo artist, who gave it to five of us, the one who opted out being Mark Ruffalo. It was (Scarlett) Johansson’s idea, and she and (Chris) Evans did it in New York. Then, their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to LA, he did me, did (Jeremy) Renner, and then we just bullied (Chris) Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it. And each one of us drew a line on the artist with his own tattoo gun and it was a total massacre. Each of us contributed to giving the tattoo artist the sixth tattoo that he designed for us. By the way, he’s got another one on him that Scarlett did, which is beautiful, which is crazy, because the line she drew on him, which was just supposed to be a straight line, looked like a lightning bolt. It was a mess.”

“Avengers: Infinity War” Reaches $1 Billion Mark

After smashing records for the biggest domestic and global openings in box office history last weekend, Avengers: Infinity War has now become the fastest movie to reach $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Infinity War has hit the magical number just 11 days after it began its international roll out, beating the previous record of 12 days set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the end of 2015.

The Marvel Studios blockbuster is expected to comfortably retain top spot at the box office this weekend, and will presumably surpass The Avengers’ $1.52 billion by next weekend to become Marvel’s biggest ever release.

How far it can go remains to be seen, but the movie has its Chinese opening to come on Friday, May 11th, and a strong performance in that market will likely propel it to the $2 billion mark – a milestone which has only ever been achieved by Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Source)
