According to a report from THR, IT director Andy Muschietti is set to develop and direct an adaptation of Robotech for Sony Pictures. Based on the sci-fi epic, Robotech takes place in a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology of an alien spacecraft that crash landed on a South Pacific island. The project has no writer but the studio expects to work with Muschietti on finding someone quickly as the project is a high priority for Sony and is moving quickly to put the pieces together.

Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have unveiled a new trailer for Blade Runner 2049, the highly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1980s sci-fi classic. Directed by Arrival and Sicario filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049‘s story is set 30 years after the events of the first film and stars Ryan Gosling as LAPD Officer K, who discovers a secret that leads him on a mission to track and find Rick Deckard, played by Harrison Ford. Villeneuve reteams with frequent cinematographer Roger Deakins while Ridley Scott produces. The movie hits theaters on October 6th.



Bloody has released the first, red band trailer for Leatherface, the new movie that expands on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre mythology. Directed by French duo Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, the movie marks the eighth entry in the franchise that sees four escaped mental inmates kidnapping a young nurse and going on a bloody road trip while pursued by local law enforcement. Leatherface will be released exclusively on DirecTV on September 21st, with a limited theatrical run and full VOD debut on October 20th.

Lin-Manuel Miranda looks to continue his time as a Disney all-star where, this past Sunday at D23, it was confirmed Miranda is co-scoring The Little Mermaid live action adaptation alongside original composer Alan Menken. Menken and the Hamilton creator will work together on creating new music for the movie, which does not yet have a director or a cast. No release date has been set at this time.
