There Will Be No New Characters in ‘Stranger Things’ Season 5

Published

Duffer

Stranger Things creators Ross and Matt Duffer spoke to IndieWire recently to share some interesting news. It appears that the fifth and final season of Stranger Things will not have any new characters added to the already established line-up. The guys enjoy spending time developing characters and carefully plan out the introduction and usage of those characters.

“Whenever we introduce a new character, we want to make sure that they’re going to be an integral part of the narrative,” Ross Duffer told IndieWire. “But every time we do that, we’re nervous, because you go, ‘We’ve got a great cast of characters here, and actors, and any moment we’re spending with a new character, we’re taking time away from one of the other actors.’ So we’re just very, very careful about who we’re introducing.”

So, the duffers are going to focus instead on doing something with possible new monsters while spending time with the characters we already know.

The Duffers were then asked, “Is one of those OG characters going to be Barb coming back to save the day since fans still want to see her return.” To which the Duffers replied, “Get the fuck out of my face, and then jumped out a window.”

I’m kidding on that last Barb part. But, come on. Who isn’t sick of hearing about a one-note character that was in the series for 5 minutes?

We can’t wait for Stranger Things season 5 to get into our eyeballs. It is going to be a long wait. I’m just hoping that they don’t make us wait all this time and then break the season into two parts again.

Stay tuned for more Stranger Things news.

Aubrey Plaza Wants to be the Next Tim Burton With ‘Hocus Pocus’ Like Film

Plaza

Aubrey Plaza has long been a self-affirmed “sea hag”. Her dark personality and sense of humor has long been a favorite of ours. Now, with her production company, Evil Hag Productions, she intends to make a family-friendly film that is something like Tim Burton meets Hocus Pocus.

While talking to GQ, Plaza said that she would like to “…fill the Tim Burton slot” by putting together her first directorial effort. The family-friendly affair is said to be a mix of Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus.

Plaza can currently be seen in Evil Hag Production’s Emily the Criminal and on HBO’s White Lotus season 2.

We can’t wait to see what Plaza has to offer in her directorial efforts. It would be great to see her built a brand and aesthetic as awesome as Burton’s.

Knock

M. Night Shyamalan’s next film is already on its way. The ominous Knock at the Cabin is incredibly intriguing, especially since the first trailer gave away so little. The first poster for Knock at the Cabin is just as ominous as the teaser.

Shyamalan’s last film Old, played up the Twilight Zone like mystery and took it to Sci-Fi levels. Knock at the Cabin looks to trump that and move far into the horror/thriller genre.

The synopsis for Knock at the Cabin goes like this:

“While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.”

Knock at the Cabin arrives in theaters beginning February 3.

Cocaine

Elizabeth Banks has decided to grace our eyeballs with one of the wildest titles, posters and film synopsis’ of the past decade. I’m of course talking about Cocaine Bear. This true story is one of those that you have to see to believe. But, the title is exactly what you think it is.

Kentucky 1985 was the time and place. A really unlucky bear ingested a lot of cocaine that was dropped in the woods by a smuggler. Unfortunately, the bear died from an overdose but not before going on a real rager beforehand.

Deadline’s synopsis for Cocaine Bear is as follows:

“The movie finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”

The film stars Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

Cocaine Bear comes raging into theaters February 24.
