    As it steams toward the start of production next month, Disney's Jungle Cruise is picking up passengers. To be more accurate … villains!

    Ouija: Origin of Evil, My Little Pony: The Movie and the upcoming Transformer spin-off movie Bumblebee all have something in common: they're based on Hasbro properties. Now the Hasbro film universe is looking to expand further. Paramount is teaming with director F. Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious, above with Charlize Theron) and Hasbro to bring M.A.S.K. to the big screen, according to Deadline. What does this mean for the Hasbro film universe? Why is Gray a great pick to kick things off? First, what is M.A.S.K.? Not to be confused with Eric Stolz's Mask or Jim Carrey's The Mask, M.A.S.K. originated in 1985 as a toy franchise.

  8. Cathy Yan to Direct Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn; Here's What We Know So Far
    In Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn was the clear standout among the dynamic group of superpowered villains assembled for that team. As embodied by Margot Robbie (above), she was very much her own woman; smart, strong and sassy, she did whatever she felt was best for herself in any particular moment. It's no wonder that Warner Bros. and DC Films were quick to start development on more films featuring Harley Quinn. We've heard about a direct sequel to Suicide Squad; director Gavin O'Connor (The Accountant) was enlisted for that project last year.

In 2016, he was touted to direct a film version of the popular stage musical Miss Saigon, though that didn't work out.
