From Immortals to Snow White to a Killing On Carnival Row

Producers Arnold and Anne Kopelson (PACIFIC RIM, BLACK HOLE) have been trying to get their film KILLING ON CARNIVAL ROW made for six years now. From a script by Travis Beacham (CLASH OF THE TITANS), the film takes place "in the future in a city called the Burgue, which looks a lot like 18th Century London. It is inhabited by humans and other creatures [faries, elves, vampires], and a serial killer is on the loose."

While Tarsem Singh first drew notice from THE CELL, his newfound success with IMMORTALS (as well as his equally manly upcoming film MIRROR, MIRROR), have enouraged the producers sign him as director.  

New Line nearly got the film made with both Guillermo Del Toro and Neil Jordan, but the producers think that Singh is the real answer. I tell you though, from that concept it certainly sounds like a Del Toro film.

“I am thrilled that Tarsem will direct Carnival Row, which we’ve been developing over the past six years,” Kopelson told me. “His extraordinary visual sense and use of light and color can be compared to that of the great 16th Century Italian painter Michelangelo Caravaggio.”

They're attached to a studio they won't name (hrm) and say that they'll get started on the noir-style fantasy next June in New Orleans. For now, casting.

Right when he gets his head above water with Immortals, they drop that dreadful Mirror, Mirror trailer on us, with it's two shitty set pieces and a dozen panning shots of a shabby CGI castle. Hopefully the movie isn't as bad as it looks, completely destroying his good buzz.

I've read the Carnival Row script and holy crap it's amazing. It'd cost a gajillion to produce, given the descriptions in the script, but it'd be an amazing noir. It's like Chinatown meets Hellboy: The Golden Army. Its biggest issue that as amazing as it is, it's for a niche audience. Still, I hope it gets made.

Good, he can work his magic on the visual aspect and hopefully the story and characters are already fleshed out by those other guys.
