Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff invited author George R.R. Martin to come to Ireland to film a cameo for the upcoming eighth and final season--but he said no.

Martin explained to Entertainment Weekly that he had a very good reason for staying hunkered down at home in New Mexico--he was working on the sixth novel in A Song of Ice and Fire saga.

"David and Dan invited me to a cameo in one of the final episodes, which I was tempted to do," he explained. "But I didn't hink just for the sake of a cameo I could take the time to return to Belfast."

Ray Liotta, who played Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese's classic mobster movie Goodfellas, is joining another gangster film. Liotta will play an unspecified role in the Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark, joining other cast members such as Alessandro Nivola, Jon Bernthal, Vera Farmiga, and Billy Magnussen, according to Deadline. Michael Gandolfini will play Tony Soprano, a role his late father portrayed in the HBO show.

The Many Saints of Newark is set in the '60s during the Newark race riots. Sopranos TV show creator David Chase co-wrote the script with another Sopranos veteran, Lawrence Konner. Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor is directing.

Suicide Squad 2: Will Smith Drops Out

about X hours ago from

The upcoming Suicide Squad sequel has lost one of its biggest stars. Sources told Variety that Smith, who played Deadshot in the 2016 Oscar winning film, is not expected to return for the follow-up reportedly due in part to scheduling issues.

Smith and Warner Bros. reportedly parted ways amicably. It's also worth nothing that Smith was never even officially confirmed to return as Deadshot in Suicide Squad 2. According to the report, producers wanted Smith and Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn, to return for the sequel. No official casting announcements about Suicide Squad 2 have been made as of yet, however.

Suicide Squad might not have been a critical hit, but it made $746 million at the global box office, which basically guaranteed a sequel. As mentioned, it won an Oscar--for Makeup and Hairstyling.

Will Halo Infinite Have A Battle Royale Mode? Nothing Is Certain Yet

about X hours ago from

In a recent interview, 343 Industries boss Bonnie Ross said Halo Infinite's sandbox multiplayer is potentially capable of delivering a battle royale experience as one of its modes. Nothing is confirmed at this stage, and that remains the case, according to Halo franchise manager Frank O'Connor.

He responded to someone on Twitter who said Ross's comments equated to a confirmation that Halo Infinite will have a battle royale mode. That's not the case.

"I don't know how you get from 'Sandbox is capable of' to 'basically confirmed,'" O'Connor said. "The sandbox is also capable of 1:1 Big Team Invisible Low G SWAT Vehicle Fiesta and I can tell you that's not happening because I've pitched it for five games straight now."

Avengers: Endgame Is Expected To Make More Money Than Infinity War For Its Opening Weekend

It's not a big surprise, but now one research firm has put out a report about how much money Avengers: Endgame is predicted to make for its opening in April--and it is a lot.

Numbers from Research Exhibitor via Collider state that Endgame is lined up to make $282 million in the United States and Canada for its opening weekend to set a new opening-weekend record. For comparison, 2018's Infinity War made $258 million domestically on its opening weekend.

A massive opening weekend for Endgame is expected. Infinity War ended on an epic cliffhanger thanks to Thanos' snap, and the film itself is said to mark a conclusion of sorts to the overarching storyline that began 10 years ago.

Overkill's Walking Dead Removed For PC; PS4 And Xbox One Versions In Question

about X hours ago from

The news keeps getting worse for Overkill's The Walking Dead. After Walking Dead rights-owner Skybound announced it would terminate its agreement with Starbreeze for the co-op shooter due to the poor quality of the game, Starbreeze has now confirmed the PC edition will be removed from sale while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are now in question.

In a news release, Starbreeze said it was in communication with Skybound to try to find "a solution." In the meantime, Starbreeze said sales of the PC edition of Overkill's The Walking Dead will "likely be disabled," and should no agreement be met, the game would never return to Steam. Additionally, the PS4 and Xbox One versions "would not be released" if no new deal between Skybound and Starbreeze can be reached. It appears the game has already been removed from Steam.

Starbreeze added that Overkill's The Walking Dead generated sales of 34.1 million Swedish Krona, which comes out to around $3.7 million USD. However, "costs related to development of Overkill's The Walking Dead has so far exceeded revenue," Starbreeze admitted.
