    Holy ****, fasten your seatbelts and let the good times roll. Nic Cage in everything now.

    Yeah, but that wasn't really happening anyway. Let China and the machines take over, I say.

    Speak for yourself, I want to see a Suicide Squad film starring Nicolas Cage written and directed by an algorithm and translated from its original Mandarin.

    Well, it sure is more filmmaker-friendly than other studios.
    Clint Eastwood has a safe place at the studio, Todd Phillips was allowed to make "Joker" the way he envisioned (aside from freely collaborating with the studio ever since "The Hangover"), Bradley Cooper was allowed to make his directorial debut with a high-profile remake such as "A Star is Born", Christopher Nolan is a mainstay at the studio, and so are others.
    And they seem to have a pretty close relationship with many filmmakers, offering directors such as Andy Muschietti, David F. Sandberg and James Wan the chance to direct big budget tentpoles.

    WB is/was the most filmmaker friendly studio out there. As much as they fumbled the connected DCEU and Wizarding World, they've been making some of the most bold movies from a major studio for a while. And for a large part it really paid off.


    However, this sounds like a real bird brained idea

    isnt this just a tool to analize data? I think right now this is going to give them the same results as humans would just faster and cheaper. why did hollywood make Golden Compas and Narnia ? because after LOTR it made the most f.... sense. this tool will analize social media sites,reddit,news articles ,... and so on. and will give them info that they can use to make decisions.

    fans every year are saying that blockbuster movies should be done like marvel movies(because it popular right now). fans always look at the most popular movies and popular actors for inspirations. how is this different?

    It feels too sterile. I know that's how Hollywood works but we don't need the veil pulled back.

    People already complain about movies made by committee. This will only hurt creative voices, not help them.

    It's okay if they use it as some sort of database, but they shouldn't ultimately make actual decisions based on it. That would be insane.

    its funny because the the last star wars movie felt like it was made based on AI algorithms. :eek:

    i would bet my life that Disney has been using somehing similar for years.

    Man, the new Batman movie directed by Matt Reeves and written by AI sounds awesome.

    A.W.E.S.O.M.E.O!

    I don't see the issue. Lots of companies use computer tools with predictive analytic programming.
