David Ayer

This holiday season, Netflix is bringing you their first original blockbuster — “Bright.” It’s directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis, which depending on your point of view, is either going to be the best Christmas present e…

If you’re feeling a bit dizzy from the swirl of DC Films news this week, we completely understand. Someone at Warner Bros. has certainly opened the faucet for news, and last night word broke that writing/directing team Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (“Crazy Stupid Love,” “Focus,” “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”) had been tapped to helm a movie featuring Joker and Harley Quinn, with Jared Leto and Margot Robbie reprising their roles from “Suicide Squad.” What this meant for the once proposed Harley Quinn spin-off movie or the mooted “Gotham City Sirens”  wasn’t clear…at least until now.

The reshoots for “Justice League” are rolling right along, but they are coming with hefty $25 million pricetag. It certainly indicates that Warner Bros. are desperate to get the massive superhero team-up right, but also that they have faith in Joss Whedon to do the job.

You would think with all the talent involved with Universal‘s remake of “Scarface,” it should have no problem getting made. However, the project is beginning to smell like there are too many creative visions that are clashing and the studio doesn’t know what they want. First, Antoine Fuqua signed up to direct, and Terrence Winter (“The Sopranos,” “Boardwalk Empire“) came into polish the script.

Universal has been very keen on getting their remake of “Scarface” in front of cameras, and have even set a release date for next year, and while they have a star in Diego Luna, they haven’t had a director. Antoine Fuqua had been attached for a while, but exited to focus on “The Equalizer 2,” and while David Mackenzie (“Hell or High Water“) and Peter Berg (“Deepwater Horizon,” “Patriots Day“) were said to be possible replacements, another name has landed the gig.
