DEADLINE – The sequel to the half-billion-plus grossing 2013 zombie pic is off again. Due to budget issues, the David Fincher-directed, Plan B produced sequel to World War Z is not moving forward. Cameras were to roll this summer in Atlanta. It’s unclear at this point in time whether it will go back into development or be shelved indefinitely.

The sequel has been through different hands; J.A. Bayona at one point kicked the tires of the sequel in late 2013.

The first movie based on the Max Brooks had budget complications, skyrocketing to $220M with Damon Lindelof coming in for rewrites during production on that Marc Forster-directed pic. With combined marketing and production costs of $430M, World War Z barely broke even.

Last January, Mireille shared a set photo from a The Killing mini-reunion project with creator, Veena Sud. It is now scheduled to screen at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The working title was Between the Earth and Sky but it is now officially entitled The Lie. Sadly, still no further details have been released, but it’s a start!

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – TIFF also Tuesday said it will close Sept. 16 with a first look at Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy, the Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern-starrer from director Justin Kelly. The fest also has booked red-carpet screenings of Peter Farrelly’s Green Book, which stars Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali; and The Lie, a drama from The Killing creator Veena Sud and toplined by former Killing star Mireille Enos and Peter Sarsgaard.

Are your The Killing hearts ready? Joel and Mireille are reuniting to lead the TV adaptation of the 2011 film, Hanna!

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos are reuniting on the small screen.

The stars of AMC-turned-Netflix drama The Killing have been tapped to topline Amazon Studios’ adaptation of Hanna, with newcomer Esme Creed-Miles set for the title role. Kinnaman’s casting comes while generating strong reviews for his role in the Netflix drama Altered Carbon. The actor will not return for a likely second season of the show after he signed a one-year deal to star.

Hanna, picked up to series in May, is based on Joe Wright’s 2011 film that starred Saoirse Ronan. It is a high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama that follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.

Enos will take on the role of Marissa, an efficient and ruthless agent who has risen up the ranks of the CIA. However, beneath her cool exterior is a deeply buried secret that continues to haunt her. The reappearance of Hanna and her father, Erik, threaten to expose the past she has worked to repress.

Kinnaman will portray Erik, a hardened, intuitive and uncompromising soldier and mercenary who, for the past 15 years, has raised his daughter in the remote forests of northern Poland. Isolated from the world he once knew, he has trained Hanna in every method of survival, with his only goal, to keep her safe. But his teenage daughter begins to seek freedom from the restricted haven he has created.

Creed-Miles (Dark River) will take on her first leading role as Hanna, an extraordinary teenage girl who feels she must leave the confinement of the forest to experience life. But once in the world, Hanna is hunted by Marissa and others connected to Hanna’s hidden origins and exceptional abilities.

“I’m thrilled that Hanna has managed to attract a visionary director and actors of the caliber of Mireille and Joel to play our adult leads. And in Esme Creed-Miles I believe we have discovered a star of the future — she is going to be a very special Hanna,” said Farr. “Hanna aims to be both a raw-knuckle ride and a deeply touching family drama. It has the visceral excitement of a genuine conspiracy thriller but also the simple humanity of a rites of passage drama. Hanna is in a very unusual family. She’s a very special teenager. But all teenagers think they’re abnormal. She’s just a little more abnormal than most.”

Mireille recently shared a photo on the set of then-untitled project from Veena Sud, the creator of The Killing. Now, per Deadline, the project’s current working title is Between the Earth and Sky. No further details have been announced. We’re looking forward to the fruition of this mini-reunion!

Blumhouse is in production in Toronto on the family drama Between the Earth and Sky, written and directed by The Killing creator Veena Sud

The pic reunites Sud with former Killing stars Mireille Enos and Peter Sarsgaard, who star in the movie with Joey King. The logline is being kept under wraps, with Between the Earth and Sky the working title. Jason Blum and Alix Madigan are producing.

Great news! The 10-episode sci-fi anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, will premiere on January 12, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video! Mireille’s episode is the tenth, entitled Father Thing.

Exciting news! Mireille has been cast in the upcoming fantasy drama series, Good Omens, from Amazon and BBC Two. She will portray War, one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Michael Sheen and David Tennant play the lead characters in the six-part series based on the novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The show is currently in production and will be released on Amazon Prime Video in 2019.

Good Omens takes place in 2018 when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, and tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan — except a somewhat fussy angel, and a fast-living demon are not looking forward to the coming war, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.
