NEWS: Zombies, Vampires, and Bond...

Hey guys! Not much new today in the world of film, but there are some headlines nonetheless, and I'm here to give you the information needed to sound extra cool, or nerdy, with your friends...

- Marc Forester, director of the newly released Bond film, Quantum of Solace, is set to helm World War Z, a film based on a book of the same title, about the world after the great zombie-human war. Sounds awesome, I'm in!

- Clint Eastwood will be helming the supernatural thriller, Hereafter...

- Summit Entertainment has bought the rights to all three of the subsequent Twilight sequels...

- Jeffery Tambour, the father in the great series, Arrested Development, has come out and said that yes, they are doing a film based on the franchise...

Well no, because we’re doing it. We are going. It’s a go. I just actually this week talked to Mitch Hurwitz, so we’re doing it.

While I don't believe him for a second, it is a good sign I guess? It probably won't happen, but never say never...

- Stan Lee is working on a new television series for Showtime based around a gay superhero...

- Photos arose of the set of Inglourious Basterds, that showed Quentin Tarantino was nowhere to be found. I thought, like most people, that maybe it was shots of secondary photography, but in fact, The Tarantino Archives are reporting that Eli Roth will be helming a "film within a film", that stars Daniel Bruhl as a Nazi sniper and a group of GIs on a suicide mission. Thoughts?

- Finally, and this really isn't news, I just want to know what you all think of Quantum of Solace, if you get a chance to get out and see it. Did the action work for you? Where does it rank in the 22 film franchise? Is Olga Kurylenko the most bland and boring Bond Girl ever? What are your thoughts?

Come back later for more news and notes...

Go see something good!

  1. I enjoyed parts of Quantum of Solace, but others were a bit painful to watch. I think it ranks within the top half of the franchise, but only time will tell how it holds up. I'll be curious to see what the experience of watching Casino Royale and QOS back-to-back will be like when the DVD is released.
