David Fincher Gives A little Insight Into Ness

MTV got a chance to get some insight on director David Fincher first comic book adaptation “Ness” based on Brian Bendis and Marc Andreyko’s comic series, “Torso“. Here's what he had to say on the project and how it will differ from the comic:
“I loved [comic books] as an eight year old, but I was pretty much over it by the time I was 11,” Fincher explained in a recent interview with MTV News. “There’s so little dialogue in comic book movies that isn’t about narrative, where you have to be next, and how to get the talisman and why it has to be in a leadlined box. Maybe this is my own cynical nature but I feel like most of the time people speak it’s to position an understanding. I’m less interested in what characters say in a movie than what their faces look like while they’re saying it. I’m always more interested in how people lie than how they tell the truth.”

“Not to take anything away from Bendis, who did an amazing thing, but it’s a pretty complete reimagining of it,” Fincher said. “Certainly from a stylistic standpoint it will be Bendis’ world, but from a story standpoint, it’s not just Ness in the moment. It’s not a linear chronology. It’s more like ‘Rashomon’ or ‘Citizen Kane.’ It’s an exploded version of it.”

Frank Miller's Next Is Buck Rogers

Frank Miller and Odd Lot Entertainment, are looking to re-team again on bringing Buck Rogers to the 21st century, says THR.

Odd Lot is in negotiations to option the rights to "Rogers" from Nu Image/Millennium, which obtained those rights this year from the Dille Trust. Millennium is expected to get a credit on the movie but won't be involved in day-to-day production.

Miller will write and direct the film but there is no word if this will take proierty over Sin City 2?

Baz Luhrmann To Take On The Great Gatsby

Looks like you will not have to wait another 7 years to see Baz Luhrmann next film as THR has the news that Baz Luhrmann officially acquired rights to "The Great Gatsby,". Luhrmann had this to say on the project:
"If you wanted to show a mirror to people that says, 'You've been drunk on money,' they're not going to want to see it. But if you reflected that mirror on another time they'd be willing to."

He added, "People will need an explanation of where we are and where we've been, and 'The Great Gatsby' can provide that explanation."

He said that he wants to move quickly on the "Gatsby" project. "I'm going to move faster than I have before. I'd be surprised if it's another seven years,"

Stephen Chow No Longer Directing The Green Hornet

Variety has the terrible news that Stephen Chow has dropped out as director of "The Green Hornet" over creative differences, but he will still play Kato in the film.

The studio and producer Neal Moritz are in the process of setting a new director to keep the picture on track to begin production by spring. This news makes flicksnews a very sad panda!

Check This...'The Snowman'

The Snowman is a children's book by English author Raymond Briggs, published in 1978. In 1982, this book was turned into a 26-minute animated movie by Dianne Jackson Channel 4. It was first shown on Channel 4 late on Christmas Eve in 1982 and was an immediate success. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Animated Short Film in 1983. It has been shown every year since and has become a Christmas tradition and part of popular culture.

The book and film have no words, instead telling the story through picture, action and music. The cartoon version was scored by Howard Blake who wrote both music and lyrics of the song "Walking in the Air" and also composed and conducted the complete orchestral score for the film with his own orchestra, the Sinfonia of London. The film's one song, "Walking in the Air," was written specially for it and performed by a St Paul's Cathedral choirboy, Peter Auty.

A true masterpiece and still as magical now as it was when first released!

Keanu Reeves Talks Cowboy Bebop

MTV got a chance to chat with Keanu Reeves about his plans to bring anime classic Cowboy Bebop to hollywood, could anime be the new comics for Hollywood, heres what Reeves had to say:
“Oh yeah, cool,” he said when I asked him about the flick recently. “We’re trying to do that.”

“It’s got a Western quality, a Western film noir aspect to it,” Reeves said of why he’s such a big fan of Shinichiro Watanabe and Keiko Nobumoto’s groundbreaking series. “It’s got so much style to it, and that’s part of its appeal. That kind of Old West, bordertown, low-tech science fiction aspect.”

“We’re taking the Red Eye [story], the beginning part of the series,” he explained, “and then we’ll deal with the end of the series. We’re trying to figure out [the time frame]. We’re looking at the story right now.”

“Yeah, it’s so episodic and so disconnected. We’re trying to figure out what pieces to put together to tell one story,” he explained. “Because it’s such a short form, to make a 2 hour version [will be tough]. And it’s got so much of an origin-story obligation; you’ve got to get people up to speed, but you don’t want to do much of that. There are a lot of things to take into consideration, but we think we can do something good.”

With devoted fans all over the world, and a complex universe to depict on screen, Reeves knows that it won’t be easy to make a “Cowboy Bebop” movie. “Yeah,” he grinned when reminded of these facts. “But that’s why you want to do it.”

Tim Robbins To Be Howard Stark?

Bit of Iron Man 2 casting news today as latinoreview is reporting that Tim Robbins will play Howard Stark in Iron Man two and two of the Avengers will show up the article states:
Tim Robbins is going to be playing Howard Stark in an important flashback sequence that is going to set up the Avengers and Captain America films. Jon [Favreau] wanted to get a good actor because he didn't think the guy who played Howard in the last film could carry such an important scene.

I'm also told that HAWKEYE and BLACK WIDOW are definitely in Iron Man 2 and they wont be cameos either.

Gael Garcia Bernal Country Star?

Lucky for us Gael Garcia Bernal is not retiring from films for a music career just yet, this is for his new film Rudo y Cursi, for which he reunites with Y tu mamá también co writer Carlos Cuarón and Diego Luna. Cannes describes the film as:

Y Tu Mamá También costars Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna are reunited on the big screen in Rudo y Cursi, a delightful romp of a comedy drama deftly directed by Carlos Cuaron.Beto (Luna) and Tato (Bernal) are a pair of rivaling, dim-witted brothers who work on a dusty banana ranch and play soccer for their local team. Beto, a goalie whose hot temper on the field earns him the nickname of Rudo, dreams of becoming a professional soccer player, while Tato wants to be a famous singer.

They both share the dream of building a big house for their mother, Elvira, but all of their desires seem completely out of reach, that is, until a talent scout, Batuta, discovers their skill on the field. To Beto’s chagrin, it is Tato, whose curlicue field play earns him the nickname of Cursi, who is chosen to become a star player. Not to be bested, Beto scores a goalie position on a rival team, further intensifying the competition between them.

But success makes the brothers confront their own personal demons and sets them on a chase for more than just soccer balls.Cuaron keeps the energy high and the laughter rolling even as he crafts a moral into the story. But even if the dueling brothers do find a way out of the banana ranch, will the banana ranch ever find a way out of them?

David Fincher Talks Heavy Metal

With the project still in doubt David Fincher has talked to MTV to shed some light on the new Heavy Metal animated feature, he claims that Gore Verbinski and Zack Snyder are still on broad to direct segments for the animated feature. With such powerhouse directors behind you think it be a no brainer to get it made, here's what Fincher had to say on the project:
“We’re still trying to get that made,” Fincher told MTV News.

“I’m ready to bat clean-up. I’m ready to do whatever story no one else wants to do. We have like twenty-four stories and artwork for it. Zack Snyder is picking one and I think Verbinski has one that he likes. We’re seeing where it ends up. I have time to do one or two and I have dibs on eight or nine, so somewhere in there we’ll figure it out if we can ever get the money together.”

“There’s no ‘Blade Runner’ without ‘Heavy Metal.’ There’s probably no ‘Alien.’ It was such a fertile breeding ground,” explained the director, noting the magazine’s influence on today’s digital animators. “Wherever you go in the world you go to any computer animation company and there lying around is ‘Heavy Metal’ magazine.”

“The world will at some point be ready for something other than singing, furry f–king animals,” Fincher told MTV.

Frank Miller On Sin City 2 And Hard Boiled

MTV got to have a word with Frank Miller about the status of Sin City 2 which he replied:
“Sin City 2,” to which Miller replied, “I’ve written ‘Sin City 2.’ Its all written. Now we’re just working out the mechanics of getting it there. Marv is in there and I hope it’s Mickey Rourke. I’ve got my Ava, but I really don’t want to talk about casting because it could end up being somebody else and I wouldn’t want to insult her.”
Also he was asked about any projects in the works, Miller hinted that his own comic Hard Boiled is in development:
“‘Hard Boiled’ is in development,” said Miller, of his book which followed a grizzled android detective. “But being in development isn’t the same as being on the marquee.”

Don Cheadle On Iron Man 2

IGN recently caught up with Don Cheadle to get his views on replacing Terrence Howard as Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes in Iron Man 2.
IGN: How did you get involved with Iron Man 2?

Cheadle: I got a phone call from my agent saying they were offering me the part. That was kind of it. It happened very fast, and I had a very short time to answer. Literally, overnight. I was unaware of what was happening with Terrence. And when they called me I asked what was going on with Terrence. I've worked with Terrence, I've known Terrence for a long time. And they said they were moving away from him. So it's not like I was taking Terrence's job, because the job was already gone. Someone else was going to do the part. I don't know who the next person in line was, but that's who they were going to. And I literally had a few hours to accept the job or not.

IGN: How much can you reveal about the story?

Cheadle: I can't reveal anything because I've seen nothing. I have no idea. There's no script yet. All I know is as much as you know, that Rhodey looked at that suit and said, 'Next time.' So I imagine I'm going to be in a suit.

IGN: Did they explain whether they're expanding the role in the next film?

Cheadle: Not in any sort of detail. I mean, I think the part will be bigger, obviously. I mean, in the comic book, if you just read the comic books, you know that character becomes pretty instrumental in Iron Man's life, so it's not a sidebar character. It's kind of integral to the story.

IGN: Are you excited?

Cheadle: My kids are excited. I mean, it's great. It's a great opportunity. I'm glad to be a part of something like that. I tend to try and keep my excitement and all of that stuff at a level which has helped me survive 25 years in the business. I've been in movies and haven't made the cut and I've been on the set of movies and somebody's come up and gone, "Ah, we're not making the movie anymore." So I wait until it's done and it's shot and then it comes out and people see it and I can go, "Yeah, I'm in that movie."

Bryan Singer Uncertain What He Will Do Next

The New York Times has published an article about Bryan Singer's new film 'Valkyrie' and questions him about what he might do next.
Mr. Singer's next move is uncertain. A plan to direct an adaptation of Randy Shilts's Harvey Milk biography, "The Mayor of Castro Street," fell apart when Gus Van Sant's "Milk" beat the project to the finish line. And Mr. Singer tenses visibly when asked about his potential involvement in a "Superman" sequel. "I really don't know," he said. Last summer Jeff Robinov, the president of Warner Brothers, told The Wall Street Journal that "Superman Returns" "didn't quite work as a film in the way we wanted it to" and failed to "position the character the way he needed to be positioned."

Mr. Singer says his own love of Superman lore may have given the movie the weight of too much nostalgia - "I'm learning to introduce characters a lot quicker and more aggressively," he added - but he is otherwise disinclined to second-guess his decisions or even revisit his past work.

After promoting "Valkyrie" internationally, he plans to take a short vacation, then look for "something big, fantasy or sci-fi."

"I really like the buildup to a movie like that: the prep, working with the art department, the planning. I've always wanted to make big movies, and I still do. Unless another really interesting plot to kill someone comes along."

Zombie Returns To Halloween

Its been confirmed by Variety, and that Dimension Films and Rob Zombie are teaming up for "Halloween 2," for an October release.

Zombie will write and direct "H2," the sequel to his 2007 reinvention of the John Carpenter horror classic. Production will begin in March.The new film picks up right as the first remake ended, following the aftermath of Michael Myers' murderous rampage through the eyes of the sister he hunted. Zombie had this to say:
"I am very excited to be working with Bob Weinstein again and returning to the world of 'Halloween.' The remake laid the groundwork, now it's time to really take Michael Myers to the next level. I believe we've just barely scratched the surface of where we can take this series."

"I am thrilled to be making 'H2' at Dimension, the home of the 'Halloween' franchise for the last 15 years," commented Malek Akkad. "I look forward to working again with Bob Weinstein, as well as a filmmaker of Rob Zombie's talent and stature."

Set in the suburb of Black Falls, where all the houses look the same and everyone works for Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated, whose Mr. Black’s Black Box is the ultimate communication and do-it-all gadget that’s sweeping the nation.

Kenneth Branagh Confirms He Is Directing Thor

MTV got a chance to talk Kenneth Branagh, in which he confirmed that he is directing Thor for Marvel. He had this to say about why he chose to make the film and casting:
So what’s the appeal of “Thor,” Kenneth? “To work on a story about one of the immortals, Gods, extraordinary beings, inter-dimensional creatures,” he enthused.

He continued excitedly, “There’s science fiction and science fact and fantasy all woven into one. It’s based on Norse legends which Marvel sort of raided in a brilliant way.

“There’s been lots of talk [about casting] — I sound like a politician — but we are too early at this stage. We’re getting the story and the visual effects together and all of that is very exciting. Someone sensational is going to play the part but it is early days.”

“It’s a chance to tell a big story on a big scale,” said Branagh. “It’s a human story right in the center of a big epic scenario.”
