Warhammer 40K movie

I remember watching my fellow geeks play Warhammer 40K years ago and thinking it would make for a kick-ass sci-fi/action film, and that I should play it too. I never did, but the movie is finally about to happen. Rookie director Martyn Pick has been given directorial duties for ULTRAMARINES , based on the table-top game and many subsequent books and whatnots. Screenplay is already...

Another Spidey rumor

I'm about to officially christen this week the Spidey 4 Rumor Week , 'cause here comes another one, courtesy of Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood . The movie blogger/gossiper says she's heard from a number of sources that the peeps behind SPIDER-MAN 4 have approached one more actress to star in the film, but for what role we know not. The lady in question is one Anne Hathaway. Let's...

Cycler gets a movie

The Twilight Effect is branching out of the Vampire genre whether we like it or not, as Angry Films is looking to find the same kind of success with a teen-issues take on Jekyll & Hyde. The production company optioned a new book series called CYCLER from author Lauren McLaughlin. Book series as in there's only two of 'em for now but Hollywood will make sure there's a whole bunch...

Download with Freeman

Is Morgan Freeman the coolest dude in Hollywood or what? Not only is he always an awesome actor to watch, he's also a bit of a tech head and his own production company has been tweaking with emerging technologies for a while. And now he's looking to bring us the next level of movie rentals. Freeman's Revelations Entertainment is bringing a barrell full of money to help launch a new...

Jason Lee & Lennon

If memory serves the Beatles were at one point planning a film called Get Back which pretty much fell into oblivion. But fear not, Jason Lee is here. OK, be a little bit afraid... The View Askew alum and former Earl Hickey will be stepping behind the camera for time travel Comedy GET BACK, from rookie screenwriter Chris McCoy. The story sees a pair of Beatle-maniacs travelling back to...

Spike & Fuqua do Miss

Spike Lee and Antoine Fuqua are heading together where many others have gone before: Graphic Novel adaptations. Probably in a bid to reignite both of their careers. And their fuel of choice is a French one, you're welcome. Vigilante Entertainment is mounting an adaptation of the French comic book "Miss: Better Living Through Crime" for Fuqua to direct and Lee to produce. Project is...

Mrs. Mandela movie

While it may be pretty much assumed that Morgan Freeman is an Oscar-nomination lock for playing Nelson Mandela in Clint Eastwood's upcoming INVICTUS , can the same be said of whomever would play his controversial wife Winnie? What if she was played by someone who nabbed an Oscar on her very first film role? South African director Darrell J Roodt will be handling a feature film based...

Space Invaders romcom

Wouldn't be surprising to see someone try to cash in on that granddaddy of video games since everybody else is turning toys into movies, but that's not the case here with Fox, surprising as that may sound... SPACE INVADERS the filmwill be a non-Atari related romantic comedy. Badass actor Justin Theroux, who's also quickly making his mark as a screenwriter with TROPIC THUNDER and IRON...

Gilmore on big screen?

  I have to admit I never watched a single episode of the WB/CW show "Gilmore Girls", but I did hear good things about it and since it's one of the shows that carried the smaller of four networks, I'm guessing there's a few fans of it in here. Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino wasn't a fan of the last season though, having left the show by then. So her own vision of how it...

A letter from Dynamite

I have no idea where the people from Twitch got that, maybe it was sent directly to them -they don't say- but the site posted an open letter apparently from BLACK DYNAMITE himself, Michael Jai White, where he both thanks and appeals to the movie's fans. Here it is, in hopefully his on words: Dear  Black Dynamite  fans: I can tell by watching the activity...

Spidey has a baby???

If that skinnier-than-myself Venom hadn't completely nuked the fridge on the SPIDER-MAN franchise, this will surely do the trick for me, providing it is indeed what it looks to be. The folks from Spoiler TV put their hands on the first casting call for Sam Raimi's next Spidey sequel, for a character referred to only as "Toddler Boy". Here's where it gets messy: 2 or 3 year old...

No Leagues for McG

The one calling himself McG might not be unanimously appreciated by movie fans, I was still kinda looking forward to his take on a Captain Nemo origins film. Looks like we'll never know if it would've been any good... Variety brought forth confirmation from Disney that the studio is putting their 20,000 LEAGUES prequel on hold indefinitely -which pretty much means it's dead- while...
