Oscar Isaac casts doubts on whether or not hed return to the galaxy far, far away. David Koepp teases his still-alive Bride of Frankenstein remake. Warner Bros. is bringing The Halloween Tree to the big screen. Plus, get a look at Studio Ghiblis new CG movie, and Doom Patrol battles the terrifyingly disco Doctor Tyme. Spoilers now!

Deadline reports Warner Bros. is now developing a live-action film adaptation of Ray Bradburys The Halloween Tree with Will Dunn attached to write the screenplay. The original story concerns a group of trick-or-treaters who must rescue their friend, Pip, from The Land of the Dead with help from a mysterious man named Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud.

Appearing as a guest on The Boo! Crew podcast, David Koepp revealed his Bride of Frankenstein remake will deal with themes of life extension and bodily autonomy.

I just gave Universal a new draft about a month ago and they seem to really like it and theyre talking to directors. Its become the story of how are we extending our lives; can we create life, can we cheat death? It only gets more and more relevant over time. The big life extension work right now thats being out in Silicon Valley is overwhelming, impressive and scary, and I feel like a present day version of that is begging to be made.

The other thing is she is a woman who is not created but resurrected, and certain people feel ownership over her, and that almost too relevant today in the era of #metoo. What are her rights as a person, the person that exists, if you were dead? There are a lot of really interesting questions that are raised. Again, its horror effortlessly lending itself to metaphor.


In a recent Deadline panel with Paul Schrader, Oscar Isaac stated hed only return to the Star Wars franchise if he needed a new house or something.

If I need another house or something. Its not really what I set out to do. What I set out to do was to make handmade movies, and to work with people that inspire me. Paul [Schrader]s movies, the things that hes made, its in my DNA. Im not alone, obviously. [For] every actor of a certain generation, those are the films that made them who they are, so thats certainly my case. It feels like for me a personal turning point and that, as far as Im concerned, it has nothing to do with the finished product. Its the process of doing this.

Speaking with Comic Book, Geoff Johns shared his thoughts on the yin and yang between Hourman and Doctor Mid-Nite.

If youre going to have Courtney actively recruiting like Hourman and Doctor Mid-Nite kind of always felt like a yin and yang to me because you have one thats very physical and one thats very intellectual. And I always saw them as The Flash and Green Lantern of the JSA and even when Rick and Beth joined Infinity Inc., they did it in the same issue. They just felt, theyve always felt like they were this interesting pair that, to me, that they look cool together, they were very different, they approach things differently.

Rex was an extrovert and Charles McNider was an introvert. They had these great dynamics between these two and I love the characters for that. And I felt like when we were introducing them both, if Courtney was actively pursuing Rick, well, then wed have Beth, as shes trying to recruit one person, while somebody else is kind of recruiting herself, is getting involved herself.

The 100 gets a backdoor pilot for a prequel series with the synopsis for Anaconda airing July 9.
