Lots of good stuff happened this week (my school didnt burn up though, thats a downer) But we got great things to look forward till next year when it comes to good ol’ entertainment, like Wolf-Man, Kick-Ass and more. That should hold us up. Check it out, after the break!
news comes in today that Lionsgate has nabbed the rights for the ultra-violent adaption of the comic. Lionsgate plans to fully back the film with a wide release sometime in 2010. Hopefully no cuts will be necessary. Now can anyone make Millar go back and finish the goddamn comic?
Geoff Johns to Co-Write “Shazam!” Film Via Comicbook Resources
It has been confirmed that Geoff Johns and Billy Birch are to write a new screenplay based on Captain Marvel and the “Shazam!” family of DC Comics characters. Peter Segal is still attached to direct the film.
Johns, was also recently announced as a writer and producer on WB’s film based on The Flash. He also writes most of the DC universe, and should be promoted to Editor in Chief. (just a humble opinion)
Wolf-Man trailer is indeed great. If Avatar wasn’t your cup of tea, then watch this!
“Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Upon his return and after being reunited with his estranged father, Talbot is bitten and cursed by a werewolf.”
SUCK: catchy title. Here’s a movie that I’m keeping an eye out. It’s sort of like a B-movie, but with an awesome cast. Via Twitch
Finally, Youth in Revolt, a Michael Cera film about getting rejected and going to extreme lengths to win her over. I keep an eye out for this guy only because he’s going to be the lead character in the Scott Pilgrim film (I’m a huge fan of the book. Huge.) Like many other people I feel this guy plays the same role in every movie (kind of like Al Pacino, where he doesnt play any given role, but he really just plays himself) HOWEVER, there’s something interesting about this one. Cera’s character creates a second (hipster-y, douchey) persona of himself in order to get what he wants. It’s actully…pretty hilarious. Check it.
