William Fichtner plays Eric Sachs, the man who becomes Shredder in the upcoming “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot. Fichtner confirmed neither Bebop and Rocksteady will appear in the reboot, and recently spoke about his villainous role:
“What I read about Eric Sachs in the script was great, and then how the character has been moulded and changed when we started filming has become something really quite remarkable in terms of what we’ve seen before of the character.” [Source: The Hollywood News]
Fifty Shades of Grey
Making his first public appearance since departing “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Charlie Hunnam says he’s “doing good” and wouldn’t comment about any of the talk surrounding his exit from that film.
Instead, he says he is concentrating on finishing the sixth season of “Sons of Anarchy” before seeing family in the UK, then filming Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak” before shooting the seventh and final season of ‘Sons’. [Source: EW]
Paramount has picked up Chris Gorak’s sci-fi spec script “Attach” which he’s also slated to direct.
All that’s known of the story is that it’s a big visual concept with a young cast at the center (ala “Chronicle”). [Source: Heat Vision]
I Walk With the Dead
“Drive” director Nicolas Winding Refn has hired UK playwright Polly Stenham to work on the script for the all-female horror film “I Walk With the Dead” which he’s developing.
Stenham says: “He’s got a lot of stick for doing films some people think are violently misogynistic. So he approached me with the idea of doing something different.” [Source: The London Evening Standard]
