Silver's Swamp Thing

08.31.2009

Producer Joel Silver recently held a press conference for his latest film, WHITEOUT. Of course, no one there actually wanted to talk about WHITEOUT, so questions were directed toward his potential next projects. The "big" announcement? SWAMP THING. In 3D!

“I’m developing a picture now that I’d like to do…I’ll hopefully do Swamp Thing, which is a movie we’ve had for a long time. We think that would be great to do in 3D. There are a couple of projects I’m thinking about (for the format) but not everything.”

Yeah, yeah. Another remake, grumble grumble. But it’s a horror film, it’s in 3D and therefore it will make money. I fully expect a CGI mess or Tyler Mane in some awful costume, but I’ll be damned if I’m not bringing a first date to it. Damn you 3D horror movies and your surefire promise of arm grabbing!

Extra Tidbit: Is that picture an outtake? “No, no, no, you’re supposed to be SCARED, not overjoyed!”

yes, Yes, YES!

Please do it right. Please read the Moore run of the comics. Please disregard any and all tv/film incarnations. Please give me a good Swamp Thing film before I die.

"No, no, no, you're in SWAMP THING, not RETURN OF THE JEDI, so stop looking so overjoyed to be with a big slimy green fellow!"

i wouldn't consider the swamp thing films horror movies, more super hero action movies. either way i think that if they went for more of the tone of the alan moore run and certain elements it could definitely make a great horror film. i just hope it falls in the right hands

The Alan Moore Swamp Thing might sound like a great idea in theory (somewhere, the Great Beard is crying) but Moore wrote material in a style unique to comics which would suffer horribly if shown in any other format.

...with "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" being a notable example of WHY his style doesn't transfer well...

True, LXG sucked. BUT Watchmen wasn't exactly horrible. It wasn't NEAR as good as the book, but if you got the right people doing it, it could make a great film.

Hmmm. Swamp Thing isn't really horror. Not sure I need my Swamp Thing in 3D either.
