KURT RUSSELL To Play Star-Lords's Father in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2!?
Latest news is that Kurt Russell may play Star-Lord’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017). That would be awesome, huge fan of Kurt Russell’s work and would love to see him in the Marvel Universe.

STEPHEN KING Comments on IDRIS ELBA in THE DARK TOWER Movie
So what does horror author Stephen King have to say about Idris Elba playing Roland Deschain in Nikolaj Arcel and Sony Pictures’ The Dark Tower (2017)? I think he would be great because Elba is a great actor who owns his roles but alas, this is all still in the works so nothing final yet. Javier Bardem is also in talks to play the character. But back to Stephen King’s take on Elba playing Roland, he does not care about race. He just wants the best performance and how fast can he draw a gun. Great response from King. We included the official Tweet below.

I hope they make something good with season 2 because I really enjoyed Fox’s Wayward Pines Season 1. M. Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines Season 2 will premiere Summer 2016.
