The Daniel Espinosa-directed feature tells of the antihero Morbius the Living Vampire. Morbius is Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results. Instead of being cured, he became afflicted with a condition that was a form of vampirism, hitting him with the thirst for blood, along with fangs and super strength.

Leto will play Morbius, while Smith is set to portray the villain of the piece, Loxias Crown, Morbius’ best friend who also suffers from the blood disease. Arjona will play Morbius’ love interest, while Harris will portray Morbius’ mentor.

A reboot of ’90s horror classic “The Craft” is in the works at Blumhouse.

The news hails from Production Weekly, who have Zoe Lister-Jones (“Band Aid”) writing and directing for a July 2019 start. Jason Blum, Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher are the billed producers, with Daniel Casey on scripting duties with Lister-Jones.

According to the site, the new film features a quartet of new witches-in-training.

“A remake of the 1996 supernatural teen thriller. When starting at a new school, Hannah befriends Tabby, Lourdes, and Frankie & quickly becomes the fourth member of their Clique. Hannah soon learns that she somehow brings great power to the quartet.”

Robin Tunney, one of the stars of the 1996 film, previously spoke about what she believed what make a reboot or sequel successful.

“I feel like in order to make it seem culturally relevant, they need to do something [new] and do it quite well. They just can’t pick it up where it left off and it’s all of our kids or something,” Tunney pointed out. “Generations of people have watched it. It’s the idea of somebody just trying to monetize that and not caring if it’s good or not would be sad. I would love to do it if I thought it was going to be cool. I’m so proud of the fact that I was in a movie that has been loved by so many generations of people and watched at so many sleepovers. It’s an honor.”

Original Justice League plans called for Lois Lane’s death

And more details about the never-filmed version

If Zack Snyder had been able to shoot his intended take on “Justice League”, it would’ve been a much different movie than the version – Joss Whedon partly directed – released in theaters.

According to the filmmaker, his darker, grittier version of the film wasn’t shot but it was mapped out to a tee – and you’ll spot remnants of it in the current version.

“The original Justice League that Chris [Terrio] and I wrote, we didn’t even shoot,” Snyder confirmed at a screening of “Batman v Superman” this past weekend.  “The actual idea, the hard, hard idea, the scary idea, we never filmed because the studio was like ‘That’s crazy.'”

“When this movie came out, understand that Chris Terrio and I had finished the script to Justice League before Batman v Superman came out. Some people didn’t like the movie. A vocal minority. So they said ‘There’s a lot of stuff we don’t want you to do,’ so we did a rewrite from that script.”

Before he was forced to tweak the script, Snyder said the film went much deeper than the thin farce that hit screens.

For starters, the “Knightmare” sequence that was in “Batman v. Superman”, says the filmmaker, was his idea but it would “eventually be explained” in the new film.

The “Knightmare” sequence from “Batman v Superman”

We would’ve ended up in the “distant future, where Darkseid has taken over Earth…[and] a few members of the Justice League that had survived in that world…were fighting.” 

With Superman now an ‘anti-life’ being, Cyborg and Batman would send The Flash back in time – with a message for Bruce Wayne (“Lois is the key”) – so they could fix things.

Apparently Lois Lane would end up dead, which is why Superman ends up becoming all ‘anti-life’ later on. It would be up to Bruce Wayne to protect her and make sure that never happens.

The Flash would reportedly appear moments before Lois would be killed by Darkseid, thus preventing the bleak future in the ‘Knightmare’ sequence.

So sad we didn’t get to see this film, it sounds super-fun, even in it’s various complex entanglements.

As reported earlier today, Snyder does confirm that his cut of the movie – never released – does exist, but it’s not the version above.
