The Plot Hole – Episode 70

Jump to last week’s episode

We've got a slew of movie news this week on The Plot Hole and Simon and Steven are the two movie nerds to take you through it all.

Last week we reported that Rupert Wyatt would not be returning for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and now Fox has released a shortlist of directors being eyed by the studio. Then we have casting news for Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse and what Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar may be doing for Fox.

Next up is the news that Zombieland director Reuben Fleischer will follow-up the delayed Gangster Squad with arcade game adaptation Spy Hunter and finally a discussion of the fan-recreated test footage for Marvel’s Ant-Man.

We’ll following things up with a review of Looper, chat time travel movies and look at indie Richard Gere thriller Arbitrage.
