It’s Friday and I’ve decided to write one of these again and if you don’t know this, let me explain. These are a few Hollywood news articles I found interesting throughout this week, think of it as a sort of “What You Missed” section.
Daniel Kaluuya Not in Black Panther 2
It has been confirmed that Daniel Kaluuya will not be returning to play W’Kabi in the upcoming sequel to 2018’s Black Panther. The actor was asked to return for the sequel but had to turn it down as he had already committed to starring in Jordan Peele’s Horror film “Nope” coming to theaters on the 22nd of this month alongside Keke Palmer.
The sequel titled “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is rumored to be a film that will explore other characters in the world of Black Panther while honoring the legacy left by Chadwick Boseman. Returning stars include Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and more.
Check Out my review of Netflix’s Limited series YOU DON’T KNOW ME here.
Sex Education Season 4 News
There’s been some Sex Education news and the first is the news of actress Tanya Reynolds leaving the series, she plays Lily on the Netflix series. This is the second main cast member to leave the series, the first being Patricia Allison (who plays Ola) who announced that she’d be leaving the series earlier this year.
The second news is that there will be a mix of new and old faces in the 4th season of the series, The Hollywood Reporter‘s sources say the season will see the series move from Moordale High to a new school so we can expect to see some new younger cast members in an entirely new setting.
Lilo & Stitch Remake Finds Director
Hey, did you know there was a live-action Lilo & Stitch remake in the works at Disney? Me neither, the movie has found its director in Filmmaker Dean Fleischer-Camp who you may know from his film “Marcel The Shell With Shoes On”.
I’m not excited to see the remake because I’m part of the few people that believe some things don’t need Live action remakes and so do other people on Twitter as a few of them did not receive the news of a Lilo & Stitch live-action remake well.
Breaking Bad Statues
The city of Albuquerque will be unveiling statues dedicated to Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, the character from the hit series “Breaking Bad”. If you didn’t know, the series is set in Albuquerque and to me, this is a big W for the city, this is not important new but some news I found myself being happy to see.
A Lot Of Emmy Nominations
July 12 was Emmy nominations day. A bunch of series were nominated for this year’s Emmys with Succession, Ted Lasso, Only Murders In The Building and, The White Lotus being among the most nominated at this years Emmys.
I won’t go through all the nominations but I can tell you that HBO/HBO Max got the highest Emmy Nominations with 140 and Netflix has the second highest with 105 and Hulu at 3rd highest with 58. If you do want to see all the nominees of this year, you can check out this very detailed post From Discussing Film.
One More Thing: The Office LEGO Set
Yes, Ladies and gentlemen, LEGO has revealed their The Office set that’ll cost you a hefty $120 (Around 2 051,03 South African Rands) and it’s the most beautiful thing I saw all week and deserves to be on the “One more thing” section. The set will have 1 164 pieces and 15 character Minifigures.
The set also features classic moments from the series including Dwight’s Stapler in Jell-o, Kevin Spilling his Chilly sauce, and more. I love it a lot but man that price…
