It’s unclear at this point if the film aboard the International Space Station is connected to the project Cruise is working on with SpaceX. The film announced on Monday with SpaceX is set to be the first narrative feature shot in outer space.
In a recent interview with The Wrap, creator Ryan Murphy revealed the current status of FX’s forthcoming tenth season of American Horror Story, stating there’s a possibility he might change his original idea for the new season’s theme because it has to be filmed during warmer months. Like other film and TV productions in Hollywood, the production for AHS Season 10 has also been delayed due to the ongoing global pandemic.
“Well I don’t know, because a lot of what I was going to shoot was dependent on a very specific moment, it was a weather-dependent show,” Murphy said. “So now I don’t know. I don’t know what we’re going to do. I don’t know what I’m gonna do next with that show. I don’t know if I’ll accelerate another season or wait till next year to shoot this one.”
He further confirmed there are currently no knowledge when production will be able to begin. “You know, nobody so far has called me up and said, ‘OK, we have a plan to move forward for shooting. So until that day, everybody is kind of on pause. I honestly don’t know. But it’s a great season and I know all the actors are chomping at the bit to get into it, so that’s all I know.”
American Horror Story Season 10 will be led by Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock. It will also feature new cast member Macaulay Culkin (Home Alone)

All Scripts for Disney+ She-Hulk Are Complete
She-Hulk writer Dana Schwartz took to Twitter to reveal that they have already completed working on the scripts for Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU series. Because of this, casting might possibly start soon with Marvel Studios reportedly looking for an “Alison Brie-type” actress to portray the role of Jennifer Walters. However, given the world’s current situation right now, production might not begin right away as other upcoming MCU projects like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are still in temporary production suspension.

The She-Hulk series was officially announced by Marvel’s chief creative officer Kevin Feige last year along with two other MCU shows Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight. This marks the iconic superheroes’ live-action debut who are also expected to be featured in future MCU films.
The series will be developed and written by Jessica Gao, who is the Emmy-winning scribe behind Rick and Morty‘s acclaimed Season 3 episode “Pickle Rick.”
The seventh season finale of NBC’s The Blacklist is ending the season with a unique hybrid of live-action and graphic novel-style animation. The season finale is set to air on May 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The season’s 19th episode, titled “The Kazanjian Brothers,” was midway into filming in New York when TV productions across the industry were halted due to COVID-19. Producers decided to add graphic novel-style animation that would incorporate the already filmed live-action scenes.
Cast members recorded dialogue from their homes for the animated scenes to ensure a seamless transition between the two styles, as editors and animators complete their work remotely.
In the episode, the Task Force investigates an accountant who works for lucrative criminals in order to find the violent and thuggish brothers hired for his protection. Liz must make a momentous decision. The episode will guest star Brian Dennehy and Laila Robins.
