16 Blocks

I think I'll not go crazy and post too many stories this morning . I'll end the posts with this short news story from Variety.

Rapper/actor Mos Def (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) has been cast opposite Bruce Willis in 16 Blocks, directed by Richard Donner for Millennium Films and Willis' Cheyenne Productions.

Based on a pitch by Richard Wenk, the mismatched buddy film follows a troubled NYPD officer who's forced to take a happy, but down-on-his-luck witness 16 blocks from the police station to 100 Centre Street, although no one wants the duo to make it.

The story is a redemptive tale for characters who are polar opposites. The cop, a dark guy and a heart attack waiting to happen, who is escorting this witness who is a 14-time loser with a sunny outlook.

Mos Def previously starred in The Woodsman and The Italian Job.

Good to be back home and have internet again.....cu tomorrow....have a good day.


Flushed Away

Here's news of a new animated feature coming our way. The source of this story is Empire online:


Empire Online talked to Bill Nighy (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Love Actually) who mentioned which character he is playing in DreamWorks Animation's Flushed Away.

"I play an ex-laboratory rat who's got brain damage from exposure to too many hallucinogens," Nighy says. "I'm called Whitey. I'm an albino ex-lab rat and I'm in a double-act with Andy Serkis, who you all know as Gollum. We're supposed to be the hard guys, but in fact we're useless at it."

The Aardman (Chicken Run, Wallace & Gromit) claymation feature, opening November 3, 2006, tells the story of an uptown rat (Hugh Jackman) who is flushed down the toilet from his penthouse apartment into the sewers of London, where he has to learn a whole new way of life.

Kate Winslet, Ian McKellen, Simon Callow, Geoffrey Palmer and Shane Richie also provide voices.

Land of the Lost

I was never a fan of this show or Marty Krofft the producer of this show so I haven't had any excitement about the big screen project. That said, I know there are some fans of it so I'm making this post for you guys. The story comes from Ain't-it-cool-News:


Ain't-It-Cool-News received a report from a scooper who says that Land of the Lost series producer Marty Krofft talked to Orlando's 104.1 radio station and revealed new casting for the big screen adaptation:

Marty Krofft was on the radio this morning talking about the DVD releases of "Land of the Lost" The subject of the new movie version came up. He said that along with Will Ferrell, the movie will also have Kirsten Dunst and Jack Black. He also mentioned that they plan to use the lowest of the high tech digital effects when making the film so it will look similar to the tv series. He then talked about how they are going to be making an HR Pufnstuf movie with Jack Black staring in it as Witchiepoo.

The series revolved around forest ranger Rick Marshall and his children, Will and Holly, who are caught in a time vortex while rafting on the Colorado River and transported to a mysterious world populated by dinosaurs.

Adam McKay, who directed Ferrell in Anchorman, is attached to direct the Universal Pictures feature.

The decision to do the dinosaurs low tech is a bad one....More is always More! lol


Indiana Jones 4

Well I'm happy to say that there is finally a script for Indian Jones 4 which has been in the works for over a year. Hollywood.Com gives us this story:


The image “http://www.moviecitygeek.com/arrays/images/2004/indiana_jones.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.


Hollywood.com caught up with Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith writer/director/executive producer George Lucas who talked about the future of the franchise but also his other upcoming projects, including Indiana Jones 4.

Lucas says that Steven Spielberg informed him that the script was done and he talked about the evolution of the script. "I came up with this idea doing Young Indy, which has got to be about seven or eight years ago, and we've been through a number of scripts--six or eight scripts. Six scripts, two rewrites. So it's been down the path."

Lucas added that Harrison "plays an older person in this" and that it is possible there will be a younger person but "not really to take over". He doesn't expect the younger person will be used to create new movies with. "No, it wasn't meant to be that way. But I guess that's a possibility. It's really to wrap it up. Just desperately trying to put things together that work. You need characters to make the film work. It's not just an adventure story. There's actually got to be human relationships in it."


War of the Worlds (update)

Well, It's been awhile since I have updated anything on this movie so I'll give you a look at the new Poster that has been just released and a few new Production stills.

The Birds

I am very happy to see this remake. This film was so different than anything that came out in 1963. I hope they do it justice.


The image “http://hitchcock.tv/mov/birds/images/birds.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.


Universal is planning on remaking Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 horror classic The Birds with Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes in talks to produce with Peter Guber through his Mandalay Pictures banner.

The Hollywood Reporter says the new version would be based on the short story by Daphne Du Maurier, to which Universal owns the rights and which inspired Hitchcock's movie. Tippi Hedren starred in the original thriller about increasingly vicious birds that terrorize a small town.

Universal has previously remade Hitchcock's Psycho with director Gus Van Sant in 1998. A Strangers on a Train redo is also in the works at Warner Bros. Pictures, which released A Perfect Murder - based on the play that inspired Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder - in 1998.

Platinum Dunes has released succesful remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Amityville Horror, and is working on a new version of The Hitcher.

Well that's all I have time for today...enjoy and Have a good day.


The Food of Love

Peter Chelsom (Shall We Dance?The Food of Love for Warner Bros. Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. Denise Di Novi is producing the feature, which is based on the novel by Tony Strong, whose pen name is Anthony Capella.

Set in Rome, the romantic comedy involves an art-history student seduced by the supposed culinary skills of a waiter masquerading as a chef, who turns out to be a Cyrano de Bergerac type named Bruno.

Valerie Breiman adapted the book.


The Secret

David Duchovny (House of D) will topline The Secret, directed by French movie star Vincent Perez in Montreal.

This is the poster for Himitsu the movie this one is based on...looks kinda like Lolita

The wife dies at the hospital, but the daughter lives. When she regains consciousness, she appears to be possessed by the dead wife.

Lili Taylor (The Haunting) has been cast as his wife, and Olivia J. Thirlby is making her screen debut playing the daughter. French producer Luc Besson co-produces the movie with Virginie Silla.




Twitch

Here's a story from Variety :

Columbia Pictures is in final talks to buy the high-concept action pitch Twitch from screenwriters Brendan Cowles and Shane Kuhn, says Variety.

Neal Moritz's Original Film banner is partnering with Brian Koppelman and David Levien to produce the film, set in the world of gaming.

Cowles and Kuhn are preparing to helm the horror thriller Drive Thru for Lions Gate and Armada Pictures.

Moritz just inked a pactpact to produce Disney's Field Trip as a starring vehicle for Kevin James. He also produced Columbia's Rob Cohen-helmed summer action film Stealth.

It doesn't say it , but this is no doubt a poker based movie to exploit the popularity of no limit holdem.


Kung Fu Hustle

I reported on this a long time ago but due to a request I will do the full rundown on this movie. If anyone else wants to know about a movie just make a request and if the info is available I'll give it to you. Christian this is the total scoop as I have it.










Note: This is 4 of the 12 posters released for the movie.

It was written and directed by Stephen Chow and star's (of course) Stephen Chow and Wah Yuen.

The Story: Set in Canton, China in the 1940s, the story revolves around a hapless wannabe gangster who aspires to become a member of the notorious "Axe Gang." Other characters include an obnoxious landlady and her apparently frail husband who exhibit extraordinary powers in defending their turf.

Set amid the chaos of pre-revolutionary China, small time thief, Sing, aspires to be one of the sophisticated and ruthless Axe Gang whose underworld activities overshadow the city. Stumbling across a crowded apartment complex aptly known as “Pig Sty Alley,” Sing attempts to extort money from one of the ordinary locals, but the neighbors are not what they appear. Sing’s comical attempts at intimidation inadvertently attract the Axe Gang into the fray, setting off a chain of events that brings the two disparate worlds face-to-face. As the inhabitants of the Pig Sty fight for their lives, the ensuing clash of kung fu titans unearths some legendary martial arts Masters. Sing, despite his futile attempts, lacks the soul of a killer, and must face his own mortality in order to discover the true nature of the kung fu master.




"Here! I don't know what it is, but it came out of my nose"



"You-Know-How-I-Hate-Black-Suits!"



"Jenny Craig is two streets over and take the first left."



"Do you think this is too much lift?"



"Ok I killed her, But Jenny Craig called me fat boy."

Sorry Steven, I couldn't resist it.

It had it's first limited release on April 8th, 2005

I hear it is funny.

The Waiting

Here's another bit of news from Variety about Wes Craven's new project that's in the works. Seems like he is very busy lately.

Gold Circle Films has teamed Wes Craven's Craven/Maddalena Films to produce The Waiting, an independent horror film written by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White. Wes Craven will be an executive producer on the project.

Described in the vein of '70s horror staples like Don't Look Now and Rosemary's Baby, the story follows a woman who believes she is being haunted by the ghost of her deceased child, says Variety.

Snowden and White most recently collaborated on the script for Boogeyman, starring Barry Watson.

Craven and Maddalena recently completed production on DreamWorks' Red Eye, starring stars Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy.




Altered

I'll bet you were saying to yourself...Now what ever happened to the dude that did Blair Witch Project which featured that shakey cam work and shitty ending? Well you don't have to wonder any more Moose Breath, Variety answers that question with this news:

Rogue Pictures, the genre arm of Universal specialty unit Focus Features, has picked up worldwide rights to horror film Altered to be directed by The Blair Witch Project co-creator Eduardo Sanchez.

The movie, which follows a group of men living a night of terror after their lives were changed 15 years earlier by a strange occurrence, begins filming next month in Florida.

Altered reunites "Blair Witch" producers Robin Cowie and Gregg Hale and its executive producer Bob Eick. It's being produced through the Haxan Films banner.

A lot like Love



This movie was directed by Nigel Cole and stars: Ashton Kutcher, Amanda Peet, Kal Penn, Ali Larter, and Taryn Manning.

The Story: It takes some people years to fall in love at first sight... A LOT LIKE LOVE is a romantic comedy about destiny, connection and the frequently fuzzy line between chance friendships and happily ever after. A LOT LIKE LOVE traces the relationship of Oliver (ASHTON KUTCHER) and Emily (AMANDA PEET) who meet on a flight from Los Angeles to New York seven years ago - each of them declaring that they couldn't be more wrong for each other.

Life keeps bringing them back together over the next seven years, but the timing never seems right. As they struggle with their different partners, careers and breakups, they turn from casual acquaintances into trusted friends who can say anything to one another.

As they each search for love and a relationship that's not fated for disaster, it takes seven years for Oliver and Emily to figure out that maybe what they really have is something...a lot like love.

Hmmm Production stills!



"Who are these fucking people and why are they at Mom's house?"



"Wow, I love your Zukini with melted Cheese."



"And the dog kept doing this to my leg!"



"Dude, Where's my fucking car?"



"No shit M. Night...I have to be in one of your films dude."



"Just how does she get her leg over her tit and ass like that?"



"Oh No! Not another wet Air buiscuit."

Sorry Ashton lol.

Release Date: April 22nd, 2005

Brandon Routh as Superman in Superman Returns


Silent Hill

Also from The Hollywood Reporter comes news of this game adaptation to film:

Radha Mitchell (Finding Neverland, Melinda and Melinda) will topline the video game adaptation Silent Hill for TriStar Pictures.

The image “http://www.silverbulletcomicbooks.com/news/images/0407/silenthillatd.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Principal photography is due to begin Monday in Toronto on the suspense horror feature, directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf), and will run through July 22. The movie is budgeted at $45 million-$50 million, with additional casting to be finalized.

Silent Hill is based on the Konami game in which Rose (Mitchell) desperately searches for her lost daughter in the mysterious, terrifying town of Silent Hill, where they are trapped.

The screenplay was written by Roger Avary (The Rules of Attraction). The film is produced by Samuel Hadida, who co-produced both "Resident Evil" films and has a third installment in the works at Sonys' Screen Gems and Constantin. Hadida is also preparing to take on an adaptation of Capcom's Onimusha.

This looks like it will have a sphinctor factor of about 10 lol.


Land of the Lost

Well it's Saturday , which is usually a slow movie news day...but it seems not today. The first news comes from The Hollywood Reporter:


The image “http://www.70slivekidvid.com/land/landofthelostbig.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.


Will Ferrell is attached to star in the comedy Land of the Lost, based on the 1974-77 television series of the same name for Universal Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Adam McKay, a former Saturday Night Live writer who directed Ferrell in Anchorman, is attached to direct, with Chris Henchy and Dennis McNicholas signing on to adapt the screenplay.

The series revolved around forest ranger Rick Marshall and his children, Will and Holly, who are caught in a time vortex while rafting on the Colorado River and transported to a mysterious world populated by dinosaurs.

Ferrell will next be seen in Universal's comedy Kicking & Screaming and will star opposite Nicole Kidman in this summer's Bewitched. He is playing Franz Liebkind in the film version of Mel Brooks' Broadway hit The Producers for Universal.

This film looks like it may have potential....reminds me of Caveman with Ringo Star....I laughed my ass of at that movie. For that matter I still do, I have it on DvD.

Superman Returns (update)

Also from USA Today comes this bit of news:

The look of Superman literally rests on the broad and buff shoulders of newcomer Brandon Routh.

This first look at Superman Returns— due in theaters in June 2006 — shows that the skin-tight costume stretches over only the actor's muscles and frame, without the augmented armored pecs or abs of recent movie superheroes.

Director Bryan Singer famously changed the fluorescent spandex suits of the X-Men into dark, leather-like uniforms for those movies — both of them smashes that sold more than $364 million in tickets. But on Superman Returns, he says, he wanted "something classic."

Tinkering too much with a hero's suit can aggravate traditionalist comic fans, who grumbled that Jennifer Garner's Elektra wasn't wearing her midriff-baring red suit in Daredevil or that Batman's armor had nipples in Batman Forever. They aren't likely to have much to carp about with Superman Returns.

Instead of reinventing the character's appearance, Singer — via e-mail from Australia, where he's shooting the film — says he wanted to remain faithful to the previous incarnations of Superman, from the Max Fleischer cartoons of the 1940s to the black-and-white George Reeves TV show to the Christopher Reeve movies of the 1970s and '80s.

Singer decided to keep the cape, the blue body suit, the red tights — even the V-cut opening of Superman's boots.

But Superman Returns makes a few subtle changes to the suit:

• The character's S insignia is slightly smaller and higher on his chest, and instead of being painted on, it's more of a three-dimensional plate.

• The insignia is added to Superman's belt buckle.

• Costume designer Louise Mingenbach preserved the blue, red and yellow motif, but the shades are slightly darker than the bright primary colors of the comics. Superman's yellow belt is more golden, and his cape is a deep scarlet.

The key to filling it out, however, depends entirely on the physique of Routh, 25, the Iowa native who was briefly on the soap opera One Life to Live in 2001. Singer says the Superman costume wasn't complete without Routh.

"I always had the general idea of the suit. However, when the conceptual art was evolving around the same time that I cast Brandon, I privately had paintings rendered with Brandon's face, which certainly brought it to life."

Superman's body is the key to his power, Singer says.

"With X-Men, although they had extraordinary powers, they also had physical weaknesses," he says. "The suits were for protection as well as costume. Superman is the Man of Steel. Bullets bounce off him, not his suit."

What does the movie's costume say about this Superman's personality?

"He's not afraid," Singer says.

Alright, that's all for me today. Have a good day (Especially Alan and Sara)


Perfect Stranger

From the Hollywood Reporter comes this story:

James Foley will direct Halle Berry in the psychological thriller Perfect Stranger for Revolution Studios, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The screenplay, by Todd Komarnicki from an original script by Jon Bokenkamp, tells the story of a woman (Berry) who gets caught up in the world of obsessive love and death online when she goes undercover to investigate a friend's murder.

The film is set to go into production this winter. Foley previously directed Confidence, Glengarry Glen Ross and At Close Range.


Ghost Rider (update)

here's a short story from USA Today on the new Ghost Rider movie. Included is the first still of cage as he will appear as Johnny Blaze.

He's directing only his third film, but Mark Steven Johnson has learned the secret to luring A-list talent to his movies: Offer them comic-book characters.

That's how he nabbed Ben Affleck for 2003's Daredevil, and it worked again in attracting Nicolas Cage for the lead in Ghost Rider, due Aug. 4, 2006.

"Most of these guys are comic-book geeks like me," Johnson says from Melbourne, Australia, where he is shooting the story of Johnny Blaze (Cage), a biker who sells his soul to the devil to save his girlfriend and then struggles with his demonic side, aka Ghost Rider. "Nic is one of the biggest fans of the comic book out there."

So big, in fact, that the actor sports a tattoo of the Ghost Rider's flaming skull on his arm. Makeup artists had to cover it for the film. Says Johnson: "The irony is we had to remove Nic's Ghost Rider so he could play Ghost Rider."

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

This story is brought to us courtesy of Variety:


Natalie Portman is set to star in Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium the Zach Helm-directed fantasy being financed by Mandate, reports Variety. Helm wrote the original film, described as a cross between Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Big.

Portman will play the manager of a toy store that seems to come alive when infused by the spirit of its eccentric owner. When his health begins to fail, he wants to turn the store over to her, but her depression has turned the once vibrant store to a gray pallor.

Portman will make the film after she wraps Goya's Ghosts, in which she co-stars with Javier Bardem for director Milos Forman. She next will be seen in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and is shooting V For Vendetta.

Stardust

I'll start off my posts with news of yet another comic novel being made into a movie. Shocked? I guess so lol.

The image “http://www.starstore.com/acatalog/Stardust-01.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

A few months ago, it was announced that Vaughn would also produce and direct an adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' graphic novel Stardust sometime after he finishes X-Men 3. "I've written the treatment, but I'm not a writer, so I'm just trying to find the right writer," he updated us. "Obviously, to make it into a movie, I have to change it a bit, and put a new third act on. It's going to be cool, sort of like 'Princess Bride' meets 'Midnight Run'." Vaughn mentioned that he has some limited edition art that Charles Vess sent him, but that his movie would look somewhat different. "The way he paints is very Victorian in a way, but I want it to have more of a modern look. I think the problem is that when people say 'we're going to do a fairy tale, so therefore, let's shoot it in a fairytale way.' I wanted to shoot it more modern and grittier."

Electric God

Nicolas Cage will star in Electric God for director Mark Pellington, says Variety. The drama will be produced by Andrew Hauptman's Mission Pictures with Cage's Saturn Films.

David Murray adapted the script from the novel by Catherine Ryan Hyde (Pay It Forward).

The story concerns a man who lives an isolated life in hopes of controlling his violent temper but finds redemption when forced to reach out to others.

This story also comes from Variety.


A Hole in One

Lol this looks like a very strange ass movie. Here is the entire rundown for it.



This movie is written and directed by Richard Ledes and stars: Michelle Williams, Meat Loaf Aday, Bill Raymond, Tim Guinee, Louis Zorich, Wendell Pierce, and Merritt Wever.

The Story: Set in small-town America circa 1953, A Hole in One is a romantic drama starring Michelle Williams as Anna, a young woman whose desire for piece of mind leads her to covet its latest fashion -- transorbital lobotomy. Raised in a pre-feminist era where women are not expected to think for themselves, Anna is scooped up by Billy (Meat Loaf), a small time gangster, when she is just barely old enough to be considered a woman. Anna looks for a way to relieve her pain, yearning for fulfillment, clarity and calm as madness flickers around the edges of her life. She thinks she finds a panacea in the pages of Life Magazine, in an article on the latest techniques in brain surgery.



"Ok now take off your clothes and bark like a dog."



"Is that light I see coming through your ear?"



"I hate standing in these DMV lines"



"Lady, your dog is humping my leg!"



"and now more music on Krrg."



"Damn! If I stand up I know I won't make it to the restroom."



"This is my patented Atomic Tampon...your wife glows in the dark so you can always locate her."

Wow this is one creepy ass movie.
