Warner Brothers did not stint on the budget and invited stars such as Jason Momoa, Dave Batista, Josh Brolin, Zendeya, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgard, Oscar Isaac and Javier Bardem to participate in the project.

The new film adaptation will be a direct continuation of the classic of 1984. The stars of the first picture, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts, will return to their roles.
Of the new actors, Ant-Man Paul Rudd can be distinguished.

The Walking Dead (2020)
Next year we will see immediately two film versions of famous TV shows.
The first was completely unexpectedly tested at Comic-Con in San Diego. The twenty-second video seemed to show nothing but the name and mysterious inscription Rick Grimes is returning.
In fact, for fans of the series - this is big news. Firstly, the fact that the main character of the series Rick will be shot in three serial films has been discussed for a long time. But at first they planned to show it on cable TV, as a result, the creators changed their minds, significantly increased the budget and are ready to present us with a real zombie apocalypse on the big screen, which will become a trilogy if it collects enough money at the box office. Secondly, in the series we were not shown the death of Rick.
As it turned out, he survived, and the helicopter, flying in a teaser to some city, just takes away Rick's almost lifeless body.
Breaking Bad (2020)
Another interesting project from AMC, which is also due to be released next year.
On large screens, the company plans to release it in partnership with Sony. The screenwriter of the series Vince Gilligan will take the picture.

Everything changes when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA appears on the island asking for help. The mission to save the kidnapped scientist is extremely dangerous. Bond is trapped by a mysterious villain, armed with dangerous biological weapons. The villain was played by Remy Malek. By the way, the film will be the last in which the role of Agent 007 will be played by Daniel Craig. While Bond is on vacation in the story, the code name Agent 007 will be taken by a completely unexpected character, performed by Captain Marvel Lashana Lynch.
Is it possible that recent trends of feminism and political correctness that go off scale will win even in such a classic franchise and the next Agent 007 will be a black woman !?
Fast and the Furious 9 (May 21, 2020)
Fast and Furious remains one of the most popular movie franchises in the world. Crazy speed racing, cool action and challenging stunts are an indispensable part of every movie.
Let realism on the screen become smaller every year. Following the first spin-off this year, the next will be the ninth Fast and the Furious, and then the tenth, which in theory should be the last.
Good news for fans, Justin Lin, who directed the coolest episodes three through six of the series, will direct both films. Starring Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, which will be joined by wrestler John Cena. The enemy of the heroes will again be Cypher performed by Charlize Theron.
There are also rumors that the main villain will be played by Matt Damon, in which case the confrontation between the main characters will be truly exciting.

The company to him, as in previous films, will be Jude Law and Rachel McAdams.
