David Oyelowo (“Chaos Walking”) will produce and possibly star in “Return of the Rocketeer”, a new live-action film at Disney+.
Oyelowo and wife Jessica are producing the new incarnation, which will fix on a retired Tuskegee airman who takes up the Rocketeer mantle. Oyelowo is eyeing the starring role.
Ed Ricourt is writing the film, which is one of several attempts to get a sequel to the 1991 classic up in recent years.
“Agent Carter” actress Bridget Regan will play iconic DC Comics villain Poison Ivy on the next season of The CW’s “Batwoman”.
The character, previously played on the silver screen by Uma Thurman in “Batman & Robin” (1997), will spar off with new Batwoman, Javicia Leslie who takes over the title role of the series from Ruby Rose, who departed after Season 1.
