NEWS: Die Hart, Bullet Train, Ghostbusters

DIE HART

Kevin Hart is sick of being in The Rock’s shadow in this comedy action series. And so he attends an action hero boot camp led by John Travolta.  I’m… not sure this might be any good.  But it has the Die Hard font!  Check out the trailer for the show above.

Synopsis: Kevin Hart plays a fictionalized version of himself on a quest to land the action-movie role of a lifetime.

The  series will be on Quibi starting on July 20th, with new episodes airing daily until the ‘finale’ on July 29th.

BULLET TRAIN

Brad Pitt is set to star in the action-thriller Bullet Train. For Sony Pictures, David Leitch will direct and supervise a script by Zak Olkewicz.

Based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Isaka Kotaro and adapted by Zak Olkewicz (Leitch will oversee a rewrite), which focused on sniper duels on a speeding train.

Antoine Fuqua originally developed the project and will produce with Leith, Kat Samick, Kelly McCormick. Production schedules are still being worked out so no word on when it might shoot.

GHOSTBUSTERS

Ghostbusters was re-released in theaters in honor of Ghostbusters Day. Over this past weekend, it collected $550,000 from 622 screens.  All these years later, this puts it number one at the box office.  Probably good news for the new sequel, which is said to be closer to the original two than the much hated reboot.

The third movie as it happens will now not show up until next year.  Could be a good sign though, that Sony wants to be sure that it gets a big theatrical run.
