Joaquin Phoenix won't be playing Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'

Well, it was strange while it lasted. But those hoping to see Joaquin Phoenix channel his searing screen intensity into waves of psychedelic magic in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange movie can hang their heads in disappointment.

The Oscar-nominated actor and the movie multi-verse pioneers have failed to come to an agreement, and now director Scott Derrickson and Co. are looking for a new actor to fill the good doctor’s high-collared cape.


Exclusive: Meet the real demonologist from Eric Bana's 'Deliver Us From Evil'

Deliver Us From Evil is marketing itself as a horror film “inspired by the actual accounts of an NYPD sergeant.” In the film, Eric Bana plays a New York City cop named Ralph Sarchie who has a particular set of skills.

“I’m not a ghosthunter; I’m not a paranormal investigator; I’m a demonologist,” says the real Sarchie, in an exclusive documentary about his special work and how it’s changed his life. “I should’ve told you you this right up front: You’ve become involved in exposing the devil because of this film here,” he adds. “I have this message, and you can believe in it or not. I don’t really care.”

In this exclusive 14-minute video (which includes some colorful profanity), Sarchie explains his work and shares footage of an actual 1992 exorcism. Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY

1960s sci-fi series 'The Outer Limits' is being adapted into a movie

The classic 1960s TV horror anthology The Outer Limits famously began with “There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission.”

Now, the series is returning—not to your television set, but to movie screens. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Derrickson, who directed Sinister and is lined up to direct Marvel’s Doctor Strange, has signed on to write a feature film based on the TV series with his Sinister co-writer, C. Robert Cargill.


'Prometheus' writer in talks for Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'

Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts is in early talks to write the script for Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie. Sources close to the project confirm Deadline‘s report that Marvel is looking to Spaihts—the initial writer on Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel who’s also penning Universal’s upcoming Mummy reboot—to launch Strange as another potential franchise. Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer (Conan the Barbarian reboot) had penned a script for the studio a few years ago. Scott Derrickson (The Day the Earth Stood Still) is directing.

In the comic books, Dr. Stephen Strange is an arrogant surgeon who loses his ability to operate when his hands are damaged in a car accident. Searching for a cure, he meets an ancient healer in Tibet, who then makes Strange his apprentice. The healer introduces Strange into the world of magic and sorcery, and upon his death, the Doctor assumes the role of Sorcerer Supreme, defender of mankind from enemies both natural and supernatural. Strange got name-checked in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so he could also pop up in an upcoming Avengers movie—they’re a group he occasionally teamed with in the comic books.
