DreamWorks Animation Cuts Production, Announces New Slate
Benedict Cumberbatch was confirmed as the title character back in October. We also reported last month that Marvel was eyeing Morgan Freeman to play the Ancient One. In the comics, the Ancient One was the previous Sorcerer Supreme, who served as a mentor to Stephen Strange. However, it isn't known if that story will be told in this Marvel Phase Three adventure, following an August report that revealed Doctor Strange will not be an origin story, starting with the character already established as a superhero. Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil, Sinister) is directing from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), although it isn't known when production may begin. Following his starring role in last year's Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave , Chiwetel Ejiofor will next be seen in Z for Zachariah, Triple Nine and The Martian. http://www.movieweb.com/doctor-strange-movie-cast-chiwetel-ejiofor
Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' Lines Up Chiwetel Ejiofor
Here's what DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg had to say in a statement. "The number one priority for DreamWorks Animation's core film business is to deliver consistent creative and financial success. I am confident that this strategic plan will deliver great films, better box office results, and growing profitability across our complementary businesses." The overall reduction of DreamWorks Animation's feature production output will result in a loss of approximately 500 jobs across all locations and all divisions of the studio. DreamWorks expects to incur a pre-tax charge of approximately $290 million in connection with the restructuring and related items. These costs are expected to be incurred primarily in the quarter ended December 31, 2014, with the remainder in 2015 and 2016. http://www.movieweb.com/dreamworks-animation-how-train-dragon-3-release-date
