Everyone wants to work with Nolan!

              There are no details on the film or who he’ll be playing, but it has been described as “a massive, innovative action blockbuster” that will be glorified in IMAX, because Nolan sure does love the IMAX experience.

              John David Washington to Star in Christopher Nolan’s Next Film (Exclusive)
              Christopher Nolan has tapped “BlacKkKlansman’sJohn David Washington to star in his next “event film,” sources tell Variety.

              Nolan recently finished the script for the movie and Warner Bros. quickly dated it for July 18, 2020 — a slot the studio often reserves for the director, most recently with “Dunkirk.”

              The gig has become one of the more highly coveted in town, even though most of the industry has been kept in the dark about who has been meeting for the role and what the movie is even about.

              Although rumors are swirling that the film is a romantic thriller in the vein of “North by Northwest,” sources have denied those claims, keeping plot details under lock and key. One insider described the pic as a massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax.

              Nolan is also producing along with his partner Emma Thomas. Production is set to commence later this year.

              Netflix Denies Arranging ‘Love, Death and Robots’ Episode Order Based on Users’ Sexual Identity

              • The Wrap
              Netflix is denying that the order in which viewers are presented with the episodes of “Love, Death and Robots” — its new Tim Miller and David Fincher-created adult animated anthology series — has anything to do with a user’s own sexual identity.

              “We’ve never had a show like ‘Love, Death & Robots’ before so we’re trying something completely new: presenting four different episode orders,” Netflix said via Twitter on Tuesday. “The version you’re shown has nothing to do with gender, ethnicity, or sexual identity — info we don’t even have in the first place.”

              That tweet was in direct response to a thread started by Out in Tech co-founder Lukas Thoms on Monday, where he wrote: “Just discovered the most Insane thing. The Order Of The Episodes for Netflix’s new series ‘Love Death & Robots’ changes based on whether Netflix thinks you’re gay or straight.”

              Jenny McCarthy is opening up about her “miserable” time on the daytime talk show “The View” — and comparing creator and former co-host Barbara Walters to Faye Dunaway’s explosive performance as Joan Crawford in “Mommie Dearest.”

              In an excerpt from Ramin Setoodeh’s upcoming book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View” first published by Vulture, McCarthy described her “miserable” short-lived stint as a c0-host on the ABC show on Season 17, from 2013 to 2014.

              “You know the movie ‘Mommie Dearest’? I remember as a child watching that movie and going, ‘Holy cow!’ I’ve never seen a woman yell like that before until I worked with Barbara Walters,” McCarthy said, referring to the 1981 film about classic Hollywood star Crawford’s tumultuous upbringing of her adoptive daughter.

              Why ‘Missing Link’s’ Title Character Was One of Laika’s Biggest Challenges

              Stop-motion studio Laika pushes design boundaries in every film it makes, and the lead character in “Missing Link” is no exception.

              “It became pretty apparent that [the character] Link was going to be the cornerstone,” says director and writer Chris Butler. “I did this rough drawing many years ago, and it was basically like a hairy avocado. Everyone loved it.”

              That hairy avocado became one of Laika’s toughest challenges. Usually characters have a neck, and the neck can be moved to communicate different things. Puppet designers realized they would need to give Link a different skeleton so the area where his neck would be could appear more pliable. And they’d need to move his hair as animators created his facial expressions with thousands of different 3D printed masks.

              “Link’s face was closely tied to his fur,” says Brian McLean, director of rapid prototyping. “So what we came up with,
