Logan, the capper of Fox’s Wolverine trilogy and reportedly the final time star Hugh Jackman will play the clawed character, has gained a few new stills. The first lies above and the other closes out this montage of movie news. Logan arrives in theaters on March 3rd, 2017 and is the tenth film in Fox’s on-going X-Men franchise. This Wolverine adventure sees the seemingly-immortal mutant living as a shell of a man almost a decade into the future. His powers slowly leaving him, he’s forced to strike out on one last adventure before his time is up. Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, and more join Jackman in his last hurrah. James Mangold directs, from a script by Michael Green, Scott Frank, and himself.

Before Rupert Wyatt’s live action adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson arrives in theaters later this year, Lionsgate and Funimation Films are team to re-release the classic original Ghost In The Shell in theaters. The groundbreaking 1995 anime will receive a special two-day release on February 7th & 8th. This reissue will span 110 theaters across the nation. A brand new, remastered special edition of the film will also be hitting Blu-ray and digital outlets on March 7th.

Filmmaker Joe Carnahan took to social media recently to reveal that he has turned in the script for the upcoming Uncharted film. Shawn Levy (Real Steel) is slated to direct the video game adaptation for Sony. No star has been locked in place just yet, but the project is aiming for a 2018 release. Here’s what Carnahan had to say…

Done and Dusted. Now the REAL work begins. If there’s a more monstrously cool action script in Hollywood right now, I wanna read it, ‘cuz this thing is a BEAST.”

Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) will take over directorial duties on Father Daughter Time from star Matt Damon. Originally slated to direct, produce, and star in the family-centric crime caper, Damon is stepping down from the director’s chair. He will remain on board as producer and is expected to still topline the project. The film, scripted by Matthew Aldrich, centers on a fugitive who takes his daughter on a tri-state crime spree.
