Ari Aster’s ‘Disappointments Blvd’ Keeps Getting Better as Zoe Lister-Jones, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Parker Posey Join the Cast

Ari Aster‘s latest project, Disappointments Blvd., came out of the gates strong announced as the lead, and the more actors that sign on the more exciting the movie looks.

Deadline revealed a bunch of new actors attached to the film, which would be Aster’s follow-up to Midsommar. Parker Posey, Zoe Lister-Jones, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Hayley Squires, Michael Gandolfini, and Denis Menochet have all signed on to the project, which is still super mysterious. In fact, we don’t even know what genre it’s going to be, although it’s a safe bet that, with Aster writing and directing, shit’s gonna get uncomfortable at some point.

What We Know So Far

The only thing out there right now is a one-liner that describes the plot as being “a decades-spanning portrait of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time.”

No reference to suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning, bear suit fires, or elderly cult worshippers with their dongs hanging out, but they don’t explicitly rule any of that weirdness out, either.

A Cornucopia of Talent

Parker Posey is a particularly exciting addition to the cast, which already includes Phoenix, Nathan Lane, Amy Ryan, Kylie Rogers, and Pattie Lupone. Told ya’, it’s stacked. But let’s not sleep on Life in Pieces actress and The Craft: Legacy filmmaker Zoe Lister-Jones or Stephen McKinley Henderson, a great character actor who you’ll remember from FencesDevs, and Lady Bird to name only a few.

It’s no surprise that Aster has his pick of the litter when it comes to casting. Both Hereditary and Midsommar aren’t just good genre movies, they’re loaded with complex characters in extreme scenarios, which is also known around Hollywood way as “actor bait.”

Think of Toni Collette in Hereditary and how extreme she gets to play her character, going from detached to grief-stricken to slowly losing her mind. Or how about Florence Pugh‘s arc in Midsommar that pays off with that cathartic, memorable ending?

I interviewed Aster for Hereditary and he told me that his main inspiration for that horrific film wasn’t a classic thriller, but rather 1950s melodramas. And you see that at work in his movies. That’s where all the dysfunctional family stuff comes from and that’s the catnip for actors.

Aster’s one of the most fascinating creatives working in movies at the moment and after being knocked on my butt at the Sundance premiere of Hereditary (seriously, the “telephone pole” scene was one of the tensest, quietest audience reaction moments I’ve ever experienced), I’ll be first in line for any movie he comes up with.

EP Eric Wallace Thinks Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Could Run For ‘Several More Seasons’

The show must go on! The post EP Eric Wallace Thinks Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Could Run For ‘Several More Seasons’ appeared first on Heroic Hollywood.

EP Eric Wallace Thinks Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Could Run For ‘Several More Seasons’

The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace feels like the Grant Gustin-led series could easily continue after just wrapping up its seventh season.

In 2014, The CW launched The Flash with Grant Gustin in the role after his Barry Allen debuted in Arrow. The Flash is still going strong today with the series recently concluding its seventh season with another confirmed to be on the way.

Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Season 7 Finale Features The Return Of SPOILER

Several stars of the series like Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh have exited, but The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace told Deadline he thinks the series could still go on for more seasons:

“I feel this show could run easily for at least several more seasons, and possibly beyond. Because I feel like every season, we, as a writing staff, have to decide between all the wonderful stories we want to tell, versus how many episodes we actually have to tell them. We have so much more that we’d love to show the audience and give to them, as a thank you for coming along on this ride with us, but we just can’t get to it. That’s why I say, there’s many more seasons worth of stories to tell, at least from our creative perspective.”

How many more seasons do you think The Flash will go on for? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker & Jesse Martin To Return For ‘The Flash’ Season 8

Here is the synopsis for season seven of The Flash: 

“Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).

With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.”

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.
