After the worldwide pandemic caused several TV shows and films to delay production, work on projects is slowly starting up again — albeit with extra measures and precautions in place to ensure the safety of cast and crew and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The accompanying image (below) depicts a set of sharp and pointy teeth, along with a caption that says, “Looks like American Horror Story Season 10 is go for an October (fitting) production launch. Thanks to everyone who is working hard to assure a safe start for the cast and crew. And yes this is a clue.”
Not much is known about the “theme” of the upcoming season of the horror anthology series, beyond the fact that it will be set on the beach and will star Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone), the latest person to join the show’s recurring cast of actors, which includes Kathy Bates (Misery), Leslie Grossman (AHS: 1984), Billie Lourd (Rise of Skywalker), Sarah Paulson (Ratched), Evan Peters, Adina Porter (The 100), Lily Rabe (Voltron), Angelica Ross (Pose), and Finn Witrock (AHS: 1984).
Also, this isn’t the only show Murphy has in the works with FX, having also created an AHS spinoff titled American Horror Stories, which will feature hourlong standalone stories.
American Horror Story season 10 is scheduled to air on FX sometime in 2021.
Marvel’s upcoming movie schedule may have been delayed, but that doesn’t mean that productivity has ground to a halt entirely on the creative side of things — well, at least it hasn’t for Ant-Man 3 director Peyton Reed.
“We have [cracked the story],” the director informed Yahoo Entertainment. “Nothing is official yet, but we’re quietly working. We’re working through the pandemic.”
Reed, who directed the previous two films, will also be helming this one, with a script penned by Jeff Loveness (Rick and Morty), with the latter joining the project earlier this year.
The film is a part of the MCU’s “Phase 4” and will no doubt see Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) deal with the events of the previous two films, Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Endgame, which saw Scott get trapped in the quantum realm only to be released five years later, after Thanos’ infamous snap, with Scott’s daughter Cassie (Emma Fuhrmann) having aged five years since he last saw her and her having thought him erased with half the Earth’s population.
And that’s not the only nugget from Reed, who confirmed that Hope will once again receive equal billing in the threequel’s title, just as she did in the second movie, making her the first female Marvel hero to be featured in two film titles — though Captain Marvel is slowly catching up to that.
“They’re a partnership, and she’s a very, very important part of that,” said Reed regarding Hope’s character (aka the Wasp). “And that was a very gratifying thing; I guess technically we were the first Marvel movie with a female hero in the title of the movie. Finding that balance in that movie, that’s very important to me because that’s very much a men’s playing field, historically. But that’s really, really changing now in a great way.”
Ant-Man 3 is currently set to buzz into theaters in 2022.
And finally, Manifest‘s third season may not be taking off till fall 2021, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t still celebrate “828 Day” (Aug. 28), in honor of the infamous flight at the center of the series.
As part of the festivities, the show tweeted a video of creator and showrunner Jeff Rake in which he teased eight things fans can look forward to in the new season, as well as debunking two fan theories and calling attention to eight things eagle-eyed viewers intent on solving the show’s mysteries might have missed. (8-2-8!)
Among some of the reveals in the video (above) is the fact that Season 3 will pick up three months after the second season finale took place, with the new season also seeing the return of a long-lost character, as well as the introduction of a passenger who fans have yet to meet, but who Rake says will be integral to the series.
Manifest is a Lost-esque mystery drama that follows the story of a group of passengers on a flight that went missing for a few hours (Montego Airlines, Flight 828), only, as the characters learn once they eventually land, five years have passed since, with most of the world considering them dead. However, as they try to grapple with what happened and move on from it, they discover that things are not as they seem and that their lives are now forever changed because of it.
Manifest lands on NBC in the fall of 2021.
