Media Watch: Wan Rebooting ‘Knight Rider’, Trailers For ‘The Owners’ and ‘Hoops’ & More!

Be Careful Who You Rob In The Owners Trailer

RLJE Films has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming home invasion thriller The Owners starring Maisie Williams (The New Mutants) as one of a group of friends who have the tables turned on them when they try to rob a house.

Based on the French graphic novel Une Nuit de Pleine Lune by Herrmann and Yves H, the story centers on a group of friends who think they found the perfect easy score – an empty house with a safe full of cash. But when the elderly couple that lives there comes home early the tables are suddenly turned. As a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues the would-be thieves are left to fight to save themselves from a nightmare they could never have imagined.

The cast for the film includes the Game of Thrones alum, Sylvester McCoy (The Hobbit franchise, Doctor Who), Jake Curran (Spotless, Stardust), Ian Kenny (Solo: A Star Wars Story, Sing Street), Andrew Ellis (Teen Spirit, This Is England) and Rita Tushingham (The Pale Horse, Vera).

The adaptation has been scripted by Matthieu Gompel (The Dream Kids) and Julius Berg (The Forest, Mata Hari) in collaboration with Geoff Cox, with Berg making his directorial debut on the project.

The Owners is set to hit select theaters, digital platforms and VOD on September 4th.

The Boys Season 2 Clip Asks Which Team You’re On

Amazon has unveiled a new clip from the second season of The Boys seeing Jack Quaid’s Hughie and Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher at odds with one another.

In Season 2, The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.

The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.”

James Wan To Adapt A Modern Day Knight Rider Movie

James Wan (The Conjuring Universe, Aquaman) has officially partnered with Spyglass Media to develop a film reboot of the classic ’80s action series. Wan has signed on to produce along with Michael Clear through their Atomic Monster banner.

Created by Glenn A. Larson, the original series ran on-air for four seasons from 1982-1986 on NBC. It starred a 30-year-old Hasselhoff as he portrayed the role of Michael Knight, a crime-fighting driver who is being assisted by a smart high-tech car called KITT, who was voiced by Emmy-winning veteran actor William Daniels (Boys Meets World). Due to its popularity, the series is being credited for launching Hasselhoff into stardom and had also gained a cult following. After its ran, it became a multimedia franchise that resulted into three short-lived spinoff series, merchandise and multiple video games.
