Report: John Cena In Talks To Play Duke Nukem

A Duke Nukem movie is being made and invisible WWE superstar John Cena is in talks to play the titular role, according to a story by Hollywood Reporter.

The movie is being produced by Michael Bay's production company, Platinum Dunes. At this point, there is no director attached, or even a script. Hollywood Reporter speculates that, once Cena signs on to the vehicle designed for him, a scriptwriter will be tapped to bring the foul-mouthed hero to the silver screen.

Duke has had a rough go of it for the last decade or so, having most recently appeared as a guest character in the HD Remaster of Bulletstorm. His last full fledged game, however, was the maligned Duke Nukem Forever in 2011, a release of the development hell-burdened title was first announced in 1997.

Thor: Ragnarok Director Gets Go Ahead For Vampire-Based TV Pilot

The director of Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, has been given the green light by FX to produce a pilot for a TV adaptation of his vampire movie What We Do in the Shadows, reports Variety.

Both Waititi and Jemaine Clement, who starred in the comedy Flight of the Conchords and the movie version of What We Do in the Shadows, are on board as executive producers, but both are also still hands-on with the pilot. Waititi is acting as director, while Clement is writing the show. Waititi also starred in the movie version, but there's no word on whether the two would reprise those roles in the show.

There are no details of how the show will play out, but Waititi has speculated on the idea before, suggesting a TV show would be similar to the movie but take place in America. The movie took the form of a mockumentary about several vampires living together in a house in New Zealand. A sequel, We're Wolves, was announced but it is unclear when it will begin production.

Monster Hunter World's Day One Update Is Needed For Multiplayer

For those planning to pick up Monster Hunter World this Friday, remember to set aside a little time for an important day one update.

Version 1.01 – which weighs in at a relatively lightweight 815 MB – will be available as soon as players boot the game up for the first time. It's a pretty crucial update, as it not only lets players get content from the servers, but it lets them access multiplayer, which is a pretty important aspect of the game for a lot of hunters.

The update also adds a Gallery mode to rewatch any cutscenes, fixes a few unspecified bugs, and adds a poogie to your central hub area. The poogie is a small big who can be petted with proper timing and will eventually let you pick them up, sniffing out treasure for you as you walk around town.

New Plot Details And Cast Revealed For The Incredibles 2

Hope you're ready to put on your super suit again. Last year, Pixar and Disney showed off a teaser to The Incredibles 2, the upcoming sequel to the popular 2004 film. Today fans clamoring for even more details got some delivered through the official voice casting announcement.

The Incredibles 2 is bringing back old favorites like Holly Hunter, Brad Bird, and Craig T Nelson while also making way for new cast members, like Breaking Bad's Bob Odenkirk and Johnathan Banks. Here's the official synopsis included with the announcement if you're not bothered by spoilers:

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
