Congratulations – you made it through a Monday. Now keep pushing through the week with crazy news about a Splash remake, a new photo from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and a new Director on SHIELD. That and more in today’s headlines.
1. Hollywood is remaking the Tom Hanks classic Splash. Except this time, Channing Tatum is the mermaid (merman?). Squeal accordingly. [Deadline]
2. See a new picture from Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Does Eddie Redmayne get any less perfect as Newt Scamander every time we see a glimpse of him in character? No. [Entertainment Weekly]
3. 50 Cent is starring as a superhero for a new Starz show. Yes, you read that right. [Vulture]
4. Liza Snyder is replacing Jenna Fischer in an upcoming fall sitcom. It looks like Jenna Fischer wanted to go back to the office instead of staying at home with Matt LeBlanc. [Variety]
5. Jason O’Mara will play the new director on Agents of SHIELD. Something tells us his familiarity with science fiction characters might come in handy here. [Marvel]
