“Thor’s” Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller will pen the script for the project, from Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures, that will be a companion piece to the rebooted film.
The Terminator is headed back to the small screen. Read the rest of this entry »
The cable network is developing Terry Brooks’ international best-sellers with a straight-to-series option.
MTV is looking for its own Game of Thrones.
The Viacom-owned cable network is teaming with Jon Favreau and Smallville duo Al Gough and Miles Millar to adapt Terry Brooks’ international best-selling fantasy novels Shannara, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. From Sonar Entertainment, the development deal comes with a straight-to-series commitment, so should network brass like the script, the fantasy drama would bypass the traditional pilot stage.
The Shannara series first started in 1977 with The Sword of Shannara and encompasses multiple trilogies and a prequel, totaling 25 books, with Brooks most recently publishing Witch Wraith in July. Another three books are due to be published in 2014. Read the rest of this entry »
Fox has stolen a bit of thunder from Sony today with just three words – X-Men, Apocalypse, 2016.
Those words were tweeted by filmmaker Bryan Singer who is currently deep in post-production on “X-Men: Days of Future Past” due for release next Summer.
Along with a third “Wolverine” and the “X-Force” film in development, there have been hints that Singer and scribe Simon Kinberg have been considering plans for a third film with the younger X-Men cast from “First Class”. Fassbender, McAvoy, etc. are all signed for three films so, short of Days getting a disastrous reception, a third film with the younger ones seems inevitable.
So how does he top Days? By finally showcasing the most evil X-Men villain of them all – Apocalypse. In the comics the character is the first mutant on Earth, born five millennia ago and a creature that has lived in the shadows.
In an interesting twist, the popular “Age of Apocalypse” storyline dealt with an alternate timeline being created after a character went back in time and changed history – like Wolverine does in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.
Exhibitor Relations followed Singers tweet up with a specific date for the film – May 27th 2016.
Warner Bros and Zack Snyder have found their Wonder Woman. They’ve cast Israeli-born actress Gal Gadot in the iconic role and she will be part of Batman Vs. Superman, the film that will see Henry Cavill square off with Ben Affleck. Gadot has been in three Fast & Furious films, as well as Knight And Day and Date Night. Given that Warner Bros has bolstered its starpower with Affleck and has Cavill returning from the summer hit Man Of Steel, it makes sense to groom new stars in the supporting roles, the way that Marvel has done. All this is clearly gearing toward the long-awaited Justice League film, all based on the DC Comics characters.
Said Snyder: “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”
I don’t know guys. She seems to tiny to me. What do you think?
We know that CW is developing a TV show based on the DC character Hourman, in which the lead is granted superpowers upon taking a drug, but they only last for an hour a day.
Bleeding Cool has been briefed that this has been twisted for the TV show, with a little Dial H For Hero and 100 Bullets, even a little Fantastic Four.Because the proposal is that the drug Miraco from the comic book series, in the TV show will have a different effect on each person who takes it, summoning different powers and abilities based on their personality, enhancing existing talents or abilities tenfold, but with terrible side effects.
And a different person will get the powers each week…
Warner Bros. Pictures is moving up development of “Sleeper,” a film adaptation of the Ed Brubaker-written comic which began in 2003.
Set in a noir universe, the story deals with a few people who spontaneously developing superpowers. One of them is Holden Carver, a man who can absorb pain and pass it on to others.
He infiltrates a criminal organization on behalf of a law enforcement agency, but his allegiances soon come into question. No director or actors are yet attached.
Shawn Ryan “Last Resort” and David Wiener “The Killing” have been brought on board to pen the adaptation. Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Jennifer Todd will produce.
Sam Raimi and Tom Cruise were attached to a previous incarnation of the project.
David Goyer is rumored to have pitched to Warner Bros. Pictures a new take on Neil Gaimans magnum opus – his “Sandman” comic series.
Bad Ass Digest is breaking the story and claims the studio has been very receptive to his pitch which apparently involves actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Morpheus.
They also say DCs Hollywood man Geoff Johns is very much behind Goyers version. However, this is all said to be in extremely early stages unlike the recent “Preacher” news which is a done deal as such, so take this news with caution.
Both big and small screen adaptations of Gaimans comic has long been in development, but none have ever really gotten anywhere despite some major names being involved. The propertys format is also tricky to adapt – the elaborate story arcs too complicated and lengthy to play out on film, but the dense and rich visual world is to expensive to produce as a TV series.
The 75-issue comic follows Dream aka. Morpheus, the Lord of the dream world who is held captive for seven decades by an occult ritual. Having escaped, his kingdom has fallen into disrepair in his absence and he sets about changing his old ways – hard for a being who has been around for billions of years.
The series features various elements of mythology, horror, historical events and absurdist humor. Characters include Dreams siblings such as his gothic punk rocker looking sister Death, his talking animal assistants, and the immortal The Corinthian who has two mouths for eyes.
Check out THE SQUIDDER, an original graphic novel about an old soldier from a forgotten war in a post-apocalyptic world that has left him behind. The book promises heavy horror, fantasy, and Lovecraftian elements, as well as black humor.
Written and drawn by Ben Templesmith, New York Times best selling comic book artist (creator/co-creator of 30 DAYS OF NIGHT with Steve Niles, FELL with Warren Ellis, WORMWOOD: GENTLEMAN CORPSE, and WELCOME TO HOXFORD). This is his first new creator-owned traditional comic in five years!
Don’t miss out! I’ve already made my pledge!
In two weeks, zombies will take over Redlands’ Fox Events Center for the Third Annual Inland Empire Zombie Beauty Pageant presented by Forbidden Panel. Ten undead contestants will compete in talent, swimsuit, and evening gown categories before one survives to win the crown. The I.E. Zombie Beauty Queen will make appearances at comic conventions and horror shows throughout the year with Forbidden Panel to visit with fans and turn the unlucky ones into the walking dead. The show will also have a junior division featuring six contestants showing off their zombie skills to win the youth crown. The competition is judged completely by audience votes. The ZOMBIE KILL SQUAD cosplay group will be providing protection from the zombie contestants throughout the event.
20th Century Fox and comic book publisher Boom! Studios (“2 Guns”) have signed an innovative first-look deal.
Boom! will get first-dollar gross on the movies made from its properties. Said earnings will be split 50-50 between the publisher and the adapted comic’s creator(s).
Fox and its divisions gains access to Boom’s vast library and all its new intellectual property.
Meanwhile Boom! will gain access to Fox’s back catalog, so it can pick and choose films to reboot in comic book form. The studio could then reconceive titles and use them to develop remakes.
