Wonder Woman

Deeper: Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman, above) is in early talks to join Deeper. Bradley Cooper is already set to star as a disgraced former astronaut who ends up in a fight with mysterious forces in a very deep, newly-discovered oceanic trench.

Stacey Snider

New Mutants: In a new interview, 20th Century Fox chairman and CEO Stacey Snider (above) compares X-Men spin-off movie New Mutants to both The Breakfast Club and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: “It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a Breakfast Club detention / Cuckoo’s Nest institutional setting…. The genre is like a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers.” [Variety]

Daddy's Home

Instant Family: Mark Wahlberg (Daddy’s Home, above) will star in Instant Family. The comedy will follow a couple who decide to start a family through the foster-care system, “only to find themselves raising three wild kids who have no interest in being parented.” The movie will mark a reunion for Wahlberg with writers Sean Anders and John Morris; they wrote (and Anders directed) both Daddy’s Home and the upcoming Daddy’s Home 2, due out on November 10.
