Collider has received some plot details for various Lionsgate films that will be out in the future, and one of those films was for Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of Oldboy, starring Josh Brolin and set to begin production sometime next Spring (Collider says that the film will be released sometime next year). The below synopsis sounds very similar to the plot for the original film (as expected, of course), so while not very revealing, it’s certainly worth a look…

Lionsgate To Adapt Zombie Videogame Dead Island For The Big Screen

Posted on 27 September 2011 by Christian

Lionsgate has acquired movie rights to the smash hit, Dead Island, the Deep Silver video game about vacationers on an island paradise overrun by zombies.

Story first reported by Deadline.

Last February, Deep Silver’s trailer for Dead Island tore through the video game industry like wildfire. The buzz has culminated into making Dead Island one of the most anticipated video games of 2011. The trailer actually had a cinematic quality to it and many theorized that the game would make a great movie before any details were known about the game. Since it’s release, the game has sold 2 million copies. There was some controversy as to who owned the rights to the film but that all appears to have been worked out.

Here’s what Liongate’s Joe Drake had to say:

Hombre y Tierra looking for funding through Kickstarter.com

Posted on 26 August 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s hard to make a film. No one ever tells you that. They tell you how fun it is on set and how amazing it is to see your work on the big screen but they never really tell you what happens in between the time you finish your edit and the first time see your film projected on the big screen and that’s the fact you have to spend a lot of your own money to market your film and get it the exposure it needs at festivals. It’s not cheap to go the indie route and that’s what this post is about. I wrote, produced, edited, and sound designed Hombre y Tierra and now that it’s finished it needs some help getting out there so we can market it and sell it.
That’s where you come in. The other producers and I are going through Kickstarter.com to raise funds for festivals and marketing and we ask that you give what you can to help us out. Watch the video, read the press release, get the info you need and do what you can to help a group of film makers live their dream.

Confirmed: Marvel’s Strikeforce: Morituri To Become Feature Film

Posted on 20 July 2011 by Christian

The short-lived 1980s Marvel Comics series Strikeforce: Morituri will reportedly be turned into a feature film.

The short-lived 1980s Marvel Comics series Strikeforce: Morituri will reportedly be turned into a feature film. I’ll admit, I’m unfamiliar with this comic series, but the premise sound’s really interesting.

Strikeforce: Morituri, which ran from 1986 to 1989, was set on an Earth nearly conquered by resource-stealing alien invaders [The Horde]. A scientific process is designed to give a squadron of humans super-powers to fight the aliens, but it also dooms them to die within a year. The series followed the heroic exploits of the strike force who knew they’re doomed regardless of how they fare against the aliens.

According to Variety, the screen rights to the title were snagged by Waterman Entertainment who have tapped the series’ creator-writer, Peter B. Gillis, to script the movie along with Connor Cochran. Jeff Beard will produce. The trade says Waterman Entertainment aims to start production this December.

Note:While the setting of Strikeforce: Morituri resembles no future seen in any other Marvel title, the Horde appear to have gathered trophies from residents of the Marvel Universe, including Captain America’s Shield, the Silver Surfer’s board and Galactus’s helmet, as well as shelves of what appear to be power batteries used by DC’s Green Lantern Corps. At the time, that appeared to be an in-joke rather than a serious plot point. But it is now considered serious since Marvel has designated the Strikeforce Morituri universe as Earth-1287 of its shared multiverse, as seen in Marvel Alternate Universes 2005.

 

Strikeforce: Morituri is a comic book series published by Marvel Comics from 1986 to 1989. The series was created by writer Peter B. Gillis and artist Brent Anderson.

The premise is that aliens have invaded Earth and nearly succeeded in conquering it and stripping it of its resources. A scientist discovers a process which can provide humans with superhuman powers, effectively creating a group of defending superheroes. However, the process would also ensure that the empowered humans would die within a year of being empowered. The series thus focused on the heroism of the main characters in fighting the invaders, while living with the knowledge that their fates were sealed regardless of whether or not they prevailed.

The title comes from the Latin phrase: “Morituri te salutamus” (We who are about to die salute you!), a salute that according to popular legend (not academically agreed) was uttered by Roman gladiators before battle in the arena. The subtitle of the comic was “We who are about to die”.

Gillis and Anderson left the series within two years. The series was eventually ended after 31 issues, under the tenure of writer James Hudnall and artist Mark Bagley.

Posted on 08 April 2011 by Christian

Can’t wait until Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s fantastic series hits the big screen? Well, hit the jump to take a look at this ultra-violent motion comic style animation that one clever fan has come up with…

Although we’ve seen many comic books receive the motion comic treatment by Marvel in the past couple of years, it would seem that fans are now coming up with their own versions as the following video shows. A big screen adaptation of Nemesis is currently in the works (with Tony Scott set to direct) but until then, here’s an animated preview of what we can expect!

Everything Must Go Trailer:

Posted on 01 April 2011 by Christian

Unlike most of his comedic peers, Will Ferrell has never seemed insistent on proving his dramatic bona fides — aside from the one-year span a while back where he put out the negligible Winter Passing and the dramedy Stranger Than Fiction, Ferrell’s basically stuck to broad farce. His turn in last fall’s TIFF entry Everything Must Go, then, felt like a respectable departure, casting Ferrell as an alcoholic who decides to set up shop on his front lawn and sell off all of his belongings. The trailer came out today in advance of the film’s May release, and though it might be different than most of Ferrell’s movies, it still checks off a lot of familiar boxes. Is Will Ferrell a middle-aged sadsack who’s getting fired from his crappy job after years of service? Yes, just like in Larry Crowne! Does he learn to see life differently thanks to a precocious African American boy who won’t leave his side? Yes, just like in happythankyoumoreplease! Is his reputation as a weird, freefalling loser somehow attractive to a gorgeous new love interest? Yes, just like … well, almost every movie nowadays (including, as it happens, Ferrell’s other comedies).

Justice League Movie Planned For 2013?

Posted on 29 March 2011 by Christian

It is undoubtedly a mistake on the reporter’s part, but the Los Angeles Times, in a profile of Warner Bros.’ Jeff Robinov, mentions the fact that a Justice League movie is planned for 2013, following the 2012 releases of Batman and Superman

Says the article, “Robinov, who shuttered Warner’s specialty movie labels in 2008 and infamously passed on releasing the Oscar-winning hit Slumdog Millionaire, wants to keep increasing the number of big-budget ‘tentpoles’ that fuel global revenue. His most immediate hurdle is filling the void that will be left this summer when the multibillion-dollar Harry Potter series shepherded by [Alan] Horn ends. Robinov is betting on DC Comics characters to take center stage starting in June with the $200 million-plus production Green Lantern. HE’S THEN AIING TO RELEASE NEW BATMAN AND SUPERMAN FILMS IN 2012 AND JUSTICE LEAGUE, A TEAMING OF DC’S TOP HEROES, IN 2013.”

What do you think? Is this even a possibility? Just as importantly, do you WANT to see a Justice League movie?

Paramount Putting Star Trek Ahead of Jack Ryan

Posted on 29 March 2011 by Christian

The original plan was for Paramount to relaunch the Jack Ryan character with Chris Pine prior to the actor reprising the role of Captain Kirk in the sequel to 2009′s Star Trek, but according to Deadline the production order is being flopped.

Script problems are the reason given for the delay in the Jack Ryan project (Ryan, of course, is created by Tom Clancy and made his first appearance on screen in Hunt For Red October).

Says Deadline, “The slow process of nailing the Ryan script has prompted the studio to focus on getting Pine at the helm of the USS Enterprise first, even as the studio waits to see if JJ Abrams will reprise as Trek director…. Paramount’s expectation is for the Star Trek sequel to start production by the fall so that the studio can keep that film’s projected June 29, 2012 release date. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof are are working on the script.”
