Trick ‘R Treat 2
Mike Dougherty revealed a sequel to his horror anthology Trick ‘R Treat is now in “active development” during a recent screening of the original at Beyond Fest.
Melissa Berrera confirmed Scream 6 is set (roughly) a year after the events of Scream 5 in a new interview with Deadline,
No, it’s not [a big time hop] at all. It’s almost directly after the last one. Basically, the amount of time that has passed between one movie and the other is the amount of time that has passed in Scream time.
Pierce Brosnan also admitted he feels Dr. Fate’s origin story “sounds a lot of frufru” in a recent interview with GQ.
Dr. Fate has the Helmet of Nabu, which is a curse and a blessing because he is shackled to the power of the helmet. It’s an addiction. It’s a curse. It all sounds a lot of frufru when you talk about it like that, but it’s stuff that you have to lend your heart to. If you go into the mythology of it, whether it be Doctor Fate or James Bond, you know.
