’Nixon’ and ‘Ali’ Writers to Bring Bruce Lee Battle to the Screen


Posted at February 19, 2013 by

Bruce Lee fans will be happy to learn that a little beat down back in 1964 will be turned into a feature. Birth of the Dragon will be penned by Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen Rivele who also wrote the screenplays for Oliver Stone’s Nixon, Michael Mann’s Ali and the upcoming untitled Freddie Mercury biopic, directed by Stephen Frears and starring Sacha Baron Cohen.

Exclusive: Rob Liefeld’s ‘Icons’ Screenplay About the Rise of Image Comics and Casting Picks


Posted at January 22, 2013 by

Rob Liefeld is a busy guy. For starters, Godyssey and Bloodstrike have both recently been tapped for big-screen treatment. He also relaunched Extreme Studios, which not only led to the return of Image Comics’ flagship title Youngblood, but also gave fans the critically acclaimed reboots of Prophet and Glory (seriously, look them up, they really are that good).

Amidst all this, Liefeld was also scripting 3 DC titles and manning the art duties on Deathstroke, that is until he quit, announcing his frustrations publicly via his Twitter feed. That was followed by another public spat with notable Batman scribe, Scott Snyder (they have since buried the hatchet). Lest we forget, Image Comics celebrated their 20th Anniversary last year, so one could only imagine all the insider commentary he’s been keeping to himself before signing up to Twitter and writing a blog.

Chris Nilan’s Story to Potentially Hit the Bigscreen Again, Hollywood Style


Posted at December 21, 2012 by

First came the Chris Nilan centered hockey documentary The Last Gladiators this year, now comes the news that Chris Nilan’s story may be sold to producers in Hollywood. No news on whether the supposed film would focus on his younger days as a hockey enforcer (and strip-joint frequenter) or his recent rise from the trenches (ie. unfortunate battle with substance abuse).

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway Movie


Posted at October 25, 2012 by

In a recently launched Talks at Google video, Peter Gabriel hinted again at a possible “Lamb Lies Down on Broadway” movie. He mentioned an encounter with an illustrator from Chicago who was working on some things for The Lamb.  No more details were given but this is not the first time Gabriel has eluded to this re-introduced idea, which is a good one.

The ‘Unbroken’ Survival Story: Louis Zamperini Book To Film


Posted at October 9, 2012 by

Louis Zamperini has some serious survival skills, more so than anything Liam Neeson comes up with in The Grey. Yes, yes we know its not really the actor that manifests the skills, but if (and when is more likely the question) Louis Zamperini’s story as a bombardier during WWII, anything’s possible. An Olympic runner, who becomes an airman and whose plan disappears into the Pacific Ocean spending years of surviving on his skills (being an quick thief during his youth was especially helpful.

Check It Out! Dr. Steve Brule to the Big Screen You Dingus


Posted at September 28, 2012 by

Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule might be the funniest “show” on television that you’ve never seen. And it stars one of our favorites, John C. Reilly.

J.K. Rowling’s New Novel for Adults is Out, What Next Hollywood?


Posted at September 27, 2012 by

J.K. Rowling’s new novel, A Casual Vancancy, is out today. Reviews are mixed with some leading critics describing it as both “bleak” and “brilliant”. But what’s on everyone’s mind after the success of the Harry Potter movie franchise? Will there be a Casual Vacancy movie?

Charlie Sheen as Spider-Man? What Went Wrong


Posted at September 25, 2012 by

What do Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Charlie Sheen have in common? They were all eyed by producers as the best Peter Parker Tinseltown could buy. Only, the latter never got his chance to sport the red spandex suit. Why didn’t the Sheen lead Spider-Man ever get made? Now we know.

Dream Movie Casting: ‘The Defective Detective’ by Terry Gilliam


Posted at August 9, 2012 by

Terry Gilliam is one of those directors whose luck always seems to run out: Don Quixote and then scrambling to finish The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus after the sudden and untimely death of Heath Ledger, but Gilliam has always managed to create something new in its wake. We absolutely love the fantastical conundrums that represent the human condition and Gilliam’s success with The Fisher King gave way to a collaboration with Oscar nominated writer Richard LaGravenese on The Defective Detective, a film about “a burnt-out cop who chases a missing child into a world of fantasy and wonder.” Look no further than Colin Farrell in the the title role.

Who You Gonna Cast? A ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Dream Movie Casting


Posted at July 11, 2012 by

When news broke of a new Ghostbusters 3 script, DMC HQ immediately set their top minds to work on a dream casting. When those top minds weren’t available, I took over instead.

I’ll be operating on the assumption of a reboot, seeing as Bill Murray has expressly declined his involvement in the new film and you just can’t reunite 3 out of 4 busters with the same results. So here it is, the Ghostbusters 3 reboot, with alternatives to boot!

Dream Movie: ‘La Linea’ Live Action Adaptation Starring Roberto Benigni and Directed by Woody Allen


Posted at May 3, 2012 by

Can one man carry a film?

We all know Woody Allen has had his share of cinematic muses (Scarlett Johansson, Mia Farrow, Diane Keaton), and on the heels of his newest picture, To Rome With Love, we can’t help but imagine an exciting collaboration with one of that movie’s stars, Roberto Benigni.

Benigni’s quirky physical comedy and Allen’s talent for dialogue would compliment wonderfully in a live action adaptation of famous Italian cartoon La Linea. The original cartoon featured the silhouette of a man drawn in a single line with it’s creator either helping or frustrating him through the manipulation of the world around.

Mark Millar Would Cast Michael Fassbender As Batman In Dream Reboot: Offers ‘Nemesis’ Update


Posted at April 25, 2012 by

Mark Millar, arguably one of the coolest comic book writers working today, provided an update on the film version of his book, Nemesis (with director Joe Carnahan attached to direct)when a fan proposed Bryan Cranston in the role of officer Blake Morrow.

@RobbiesBS says:

Dream Movie Casting: An All-Female Cast for Tarantino’s ‘Reservoir Dogs’


Posted at April 11, 2012 by

Every once in a while, there’s that fresh idea that begs the question: “Why hasn’t someone already done this?” Here’s one from Native Audio Grrrl who was thinking the exact same thing and decided to make an all-female cast of Quentin Tarantino’s breakout film Reservoir Dogs. Seriously! Although the choices are fantastic, I’d make slight changes and we made a fake poster to boot. See the cast after the jump.

Is ‘Sexual Chocolate’ the Missing Ingredient to Eddie Murphy’s Comeback?


Posted at March 16, 2012 by

After yet another abysmal bomb (A Thousand Words), Murphy’s agent should consider filtering incoming scripts like a perverted TSA screening officer. Or, he should be fired. Or, Murphy can come up with his own ideas at staging a comeback. Or, he can take this one from us, gratis.
