Some news...

Hey guys...today was a pretty slow newsday, so that's the reason behind the late post. I caught a few flicks on DVD too, so I'll have a couple one liners at the end, if you are searching for a flick to throw on this weekend...first, here are your headlines....

- David Cronenberg's classic flick, The Fly, is in the begining stages of a stage adaptation...it will be an operatic re-imagning of the great 1986 film starring Jeff Goldblum...
- MTV Movie Blog has announced that a new Dracula film is in the works. MTV will not have anything to do with it, and not much was said other than it will be a much more down to earth version, with very little supernatural parts...Dracula: Year One will be helmed by Dark City/I, Robot helmer Alex Proyas...
- Interesting news out of the WB camp, reguarding Christopher Nolan...thanks to comingsoon for the info...

And Warners and Legendary are both interested in doing a third in the series, but all involved say it will be up to Nolan to come to them with a story and a plan.

“There are a lot of us who emotionally would love to do it,” Roven says. “But it’s really Chris’ call. Chris is the kind of filmmaker who just doesn’t think about the next movie before he has completely finished the movie he is working on.”

For now, Nolan is taking a well-earned vacation.

Says Roven, “When he comes back, we will see how he feels.”


WB is doing something right...It gives me tons of hope for the next film, knowing that it will happen, only if the autuer's heart is in it. If he is done, he's not contractually forced to just throw something together. What do you guys think???
- Despite rumours, Steven Spielberg is STILL on to direct the first Tin Tin film, with Peter Jackson helming the sequel...
- Children of the Corn will be getting a remake thanks to the people over at the SciFi channel...

Finally, I just want to say a couple of things on three films I checked out today...

- Ali
Will Smith's best performance, and one of the ten best sports films ever made. The way Michael Mann works the camera, the way it's shot, the performances, and the dialouge are all top notch, and proves that this is a horribly underrated film.

8.5/10

- Rocket Science
One of the most paint by numbers film's I've seen in a long time. No one does Wes Anderson better than the Birdman himself.

4/10, if only for the performance of Anna Kendrick

- Lost In La Mancha
A solid film about films, and gives an insight into what it's like when filmmaking doesn't go to plan. It's a little docky, with a lot of talking head moments, but it's more fun than a lot of straight forward documentaries. If you are into filmmaking, this is something to check out...

7/10

So, that's all I've got for today, so come back later for more news and notes!!

Go see something good!!!
