Owen Wilson to Star in Family Action Movie ‘Secret Headquarters’ For Paramount and Bruckheimer Films

Owen Wilson to Star in Family Action Movie ‘Secret Headquarters’ For Paramount and Bruckheimer Films

We all know that past attempts to turn Owen Wilson into an action hero have fallen flat. But what this news about the Loki actor’s next project presupposes is…maybe they didn’t. Wilson has signed on to star in Paramount’s Secret Headquarters, a family action movie produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and helmed by Project Power directing duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman.

Fresh off his first jaunt into the superhero genre, Wilson is looking to stay in the territory. Deadline reports that Wilson is set to star in Paramount Pictures and Bruckheimer Films’ Secret Headquarters, described as a “high-concept family action movie” which follows “a kid who discovers the secret headquarters of the world’s most powerful superhero hidden beneath his home and must defend it with his group of friends when villains attack.”

There are no details yet on who Wilson will be playing.

Secret Headquarters will be helmed by directing duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, who recently directed the Netflix 2020 superhero film Project Power, but are best known for helming the 2010 documentary Catfish and several Paranormal Activity sequels. Joost & Schulman, and Josh Koenigsberg are writing the current draft from an original screenplay by Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok, The Mandalorian), who was the sole previous writer on the project. Chad Oman is also producing for Bruckheimer Films.

Wilson has been relatively MIA from the big screen for the past few years, recently emerging to star opposite Salma Hayek in the Amazon Studios comedy Bliss. He will soon appear in Marvel’s Disney+ series Loki, Wilson’s first major brush with the superhero genre. And maybe it’s about time for the Wilson-aissance. The actor has frequently stolen the show in comedies like Wedding Crashers and Shanghai Noon, and has shown his dramatic chops in many a Wes Anderson film, but his past forays into the action genre have been hit or miss. Mainly miss, like the 2015 action thriller No Escape.

But after a nearly four-year absence from the big screen, Wilson seems to be in full comeback mode. He’ll next appear opposite Jennifer Lopez in the Universal rom-com Marry Me as well as Wes Anderson’s next film The French Dispatch, and is currently filming a movie called Paint.

While I’m expecting a family action movie like Secret Headquarters to be his next great role, it’ll just be nice to see Wilson and that old crooked nose on our screens again.

‘The Green Knight’ Character Posters Continue To Get Us Excited For This Fantasy Film

One of my most-anticipated movies of the year is The Green Knight, the fantasy film from director David Lowery starring Dev Patel. The Green Knight was originally intended to hit theaters last year, but the pandemic got in the way.

‘The Green Knight’ Character Posters Continue To Get Us Excited For This Fantasy Film

One of my most-anticipated movies of the year is The Green Knight, the fantasy film from director David Lowery starring Dev PatelThe Green Knight was originally intended to hit theaters last year, but the pandemic got in the way. Rather than dropping the film on VOD, A24 held out, and now they’re gearing up to finally release the film in theaters this July. Which means it’s time to start marketing the film again! As a result, a slew of Green Knight character posters have arrived, and you can check them out below.

First, let’s start with the original Green Knight poster, which arrived last year and depicted Dev Patel’s main character, Sir Gawain.

Now let’s look at the new posters, all done in the same style.

Here’s a fur-clad Joel Edgerton, playing a character known only as “Lord” on IMDb/Wikipedia. It’s possible he has a character name, but for now, we don’t know it. Just look upon his fur. As for the “one year hence” tagline, I’m not entirely sure what that means – unless they’re deliberately commenting on the fact that it’s been a year since they were supposed to originally release this movie.

Here’s Alicia Vikander and her very big hair as Lady / Esel.

Next we have Sarita Choudhuryki as a character called Mother. Is she Gawain’s mother? Probably! Is she blind? Maybe! It’s all very mysterious and I can’t wait to learn more.

This is the Green Knight himself, as played by Ralph Ineson.

And of course, I saved the best for last. I don’t know this fox’s name, but I very much want to pet him. And all I ask is that he survives the film. Don’t kill the fox, Green Knight. Please.

Here’s the Green Knight synopsis:

An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.

The Green Knight arrives on July 30, 2021.
