Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Not ONLY are getting “Jungle Cruise” from Disney starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, but the pair are now stepping into “Ball and Chain” for Netflix.



The film, based on a 4-part 90s comic by Scott Lobdell, is being adapted for the streaming service giant by Oscar nominee Emily V. Gordon.

Head of Netflix film Scott Stuber said: “Dwayne and Emily have a chemistry together that is unmatched in our business right now. They are the perfect duo to bring Emily V. Gordon’s electric superhero story to life, and take the world of Ball and Chain to new heights.”

The source material has Edgar and Mallory Bulson, married couple on the verge of splitting up, being suddenly given superhero powers from a meteor. Isn’t that always the way.

“One of our main initiatives at Seven Bucks is to continue to find the best platforms to tell stories that entertain and inspire on a global scale,” Dwayne Johnson said in a statement. “Netflix is the perfect partner to deliver this epic superhero/romantic comedy experience alongside us, and we’re excited to be back in business with the Netflix team. I’m also excited to not only reunite with dear friend Emily Blunt in front of the camera, but to also collaborate as producing partners as we bring Emily V. Gordon’s script to life.”

Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions will be producing (Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia), along with Andy Berman and Scott Lobdell, Kevin Misher for Misher Films, and Blunt, making her producing debut on the project via her Ledbury Productions.

We’ll let you know what else we hear about “Ball and Chain.

Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” is set to hit theaters on July 24th, 2021.
