Two words for you all: insurance claim

It'll probably be easier for them to cancel and claim back some of it through an insurance claim than to sink any more money into it.

Yep, you nailed it: https://variety.com/2022/film/news/batg ... 235332062/

I understand writing shit off as a loss is a standard move for corporations to get out of paying taxes, but this choice could end up having brutal long-term ramifications for them. Who would want to work with a studio that shows so little regard for the talent they hire?

An added sting on the Batgirl front, Deadline reported that Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah were in Morrocco for Adil's wedding when they found the movie got shelved. Hollywood is fucking brutal man.

Warner Bros. said that were willing to work with the directors again after this but if you were in the directors' shoes, would you want to? Of course, they probably will to avoid being blacklisted, which seems to have happened with the director of another DC film, Cathy Yan, after she apparently had disputes with the studio over Birds of Prey and has been stuck in television since.

Also, Warner Bros. likes filmmakers they can easily control. Unless you're Nolan, Snyder, Eastwood, Villeneuve, or Todd Phillips, the films at Warner Bros. are extremely micromanaged with either first-time directors or directors who specialize in lower-budgeted product or in teams.

I would hope there is an industry-wide fight to get Batgirl released but unfortunately, there won't as it's not an original concept from a great auteur like Brazil or The Other Side of the Wind were.

In other news, Neon might be getting sold off. Considering they really haven't had a breakout hit this year financially, I guess it isn't a huge surprise.
It's not destroying. It's making something new.

I was convinced that we wouldn't be getting any more Pixar movies after the disappointment that was Lightyear but there is a new one scheduled for 3/1/2014 called Masters of Fury: The Legend of Sun Wukong, which kind of reads like Black Panther but with the Miles Morales elements of Into the Spider-Verse. Who knows if this stays as a theatrical title or gets dumped onto Disney+ as it's not a sequel or spinoff.

And related to March 2024, there's going to be a third Need for Speed movie coming on 3/8/2024 but Universal is releasing it (Paramount has the one scheduled for October) and it looks like it's going to be an animated reboot unrelated to the other two films. Who exactly was asking for these?

The newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will be subtitled Mutant Mayhem. This seems to suggest several villains will appear (I don't think Baxter Stockman or Krang have appeared in a Ninja Turtles movie yet).

Remember that Road House remake that was announced all those years ago with Ronda Rousey starring? It looks like it's back on with Amazon making it and the project will star the unexpected pairing of Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor McGregor. By the sound of it, I'm guessing it will have at least twice the budget and none of the camp that made us love the original.

The Greatest Beer Run Ever hits Apple+ (or whatever the hell it's called) on September 30th. I wonder how much Apple will spend on buying awards this time.
