According to the latest issue of Scream magazine, the third entry in Ti West’s X/Pearl trilogy will be “a whodunit slasher” set in 1985, “six years after the farmstead massacre of X. Maxine Minx (Mia Goth) is now LA-based and on a driven quest to become a star in the acting world. Things take a sinister turn when bodies once again begin to fall around the starlet.”
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
During a recent interview with Collider, James Wan revealed ideas from his unproduced Aquaman spinoff, The Trench, were incorporated into Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
We had developed the Trench movie, and ultimately, like most things, you develop — if they work out, great, if they don’t, then that’s fine as well. We didn’t want that project to potentially step on the Aquaman films, but we came up with a lot of really interesting ideas and really cool stuff that I felt we could use it in this one. And so with the Trench movie, it was going to be a secret Black Manta, right? Initially, we announced it as a Trench movie, but ultimately, we wanted to surprise the fans because that was going to be a stand-alone Black Manta movie. And so when that didn’t happen, some of those ideas kind of found its way into this there.
