Guillermo del Toro Shooting a Small Black & White Movie with John Hurt Before Pacific Rim 2

13 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It surprised everyone when Pacific Rim 2 was announced for a 2017 release, and while director Guillermo del Toro is currently hard at work on horror movie Crimson Peak and wrapping up new TV series The Strain, he has another small project that he’s lining up before the return of the massive Kaiju and Jaegers.

In a recent interview, del Toro confirmed that he intends to shoot a black and white movie before starting work on Pacific Rim 2. He’ll work on this “really, really bizarre” project between the pre-production and actual filming stages of that sequel, but was reluctant to reveal too many details about it.

“It’s a very small cast. I would love to have John Hurt, and there’s an actress that I have in mind that is not well-known but I’ve seen her in a short film. That’s all she’s really done, »

Sigourney Weaver Reprises Her Role as Ripley in Alien: Isolation

14 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sigourney Weaver is set to reprise her role as Ripley in the Alien franchise in the upcoming video game Alien: Isolation. She's not the only one from the original movie coming back either — Tom SkerrittYaphet KottoHarry Dean Stanton, and Veronica Cartwright will also be reprising their roles for the game.

This will be a part of Dlc expansion for the game, which will allow players to take control of Ellen Ripley, as well as Captain Dallas and Parker, as they try to survive the intrusion of the the xenomorph alien that comes aboard the cargo ship Nostromo. John Hurt was not included in the game because the events take place after he died in the film. I included a trailer for the Dlc that you can watch below.

The story follows Ellen Ripley's daughter, who is looking for answers about her mother's disappearance. Below, you'll find a »

Guillermo del Toro Wants to Cast John Hurt and Unknown Actress in Black-and-White Indie

16 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Obviously refusing to bide what little free time he has, Guillermo del Toro will fill the gap between next year’s “Crimson Peak” and 2017’s “Pacific Rim 2” with yet another feature. Described to Collider as “really, really bizarre"--surprise!-- it’s a black-and-white picture with “one great creature in it” — and that's about as much as he'll reveal. Even the title remains under wraps, given the writer-director's preference for letting people in on his secret once the time is right. One interesting casting note: an unknown actress who caught his eye in a short film is his pick to lead his “very small” team. He's also interested in John Hurt. While nothing is confirmed — Hurt and del Toro worked together on two “Hellboy” films — the combination of director, star, and approach is enticing indeed. The plan calls for things to gear up in February or March, with production »

First look: Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in 'Doctor Who'

16 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Brace yourselves, Whovians: Long-running cult obsession Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Aug. 23 with a new star, Peter Capaldi, and a new attitude. Compared with Matt Smith’s previous Doctor, Capaldi’s lead character is “a lot fiercer,” says Jenna Coleman, who plays his traveling companion, Clara Oswald. “This man is a total adrenaline junkie.”

If you don’t count John Hurt’s one-and-done performance in last year’s 50th-anniversary special, Capaldi is the 12th actor to play the show’s Doctor, a two-hearted alien who travels through space—and time—in his ship, the Tardis, and periodically regenerates his outward form. »

Snowpiercer movie review: hunger train

17 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hauntingly grim, full of appalling ironies and awful truths. This is most definitely not the feel-good movie of the summer. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s a reason why Snowpiercer — which could have, theoretically, easily been a centerpiece summer film for a major Hollywood studio — is getting handled with the timid kid gloves of an arthouse release by the industry, quietly dribbling into a few cinemas here and there instead of getting a big opening-weekend push out onto three thousand screens. It’s a reason that has a lot to do with what the film has to say about human nature, hope, despotism, and a revolutionary spirit that might want to counter that despotism. What Snowpiercer is about offers too harsh »

Guillermo del Toro is planning a small-scale film in the style of Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing.

It’s awesome news that Pacific Rim 2 is a go and pre-production will start in a few weeks in August.

Sigourney Weaver Returns As Ripley For Alien: Isolation

9 July 2014 10:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For years, fans have been rallying for a proper video game based on the Alien film franchise, which revolutionized the sci-fi genre and scared the pants off of generations of fans. While Aliens: Colonial Marines was a slap in the face with a thumbtack taped to the palm, us scorned fans have our hopes up for the upcoming Alien: Isolation. Following Ripley’s daughter Amanda, the game promises to deliver a survival-horror experience on par with the original film’s intensely terrifying game of cat-and-mouse.

As if developers Creative Assembly weren’t spoiling fans enough already, they’ve just announced that Sigourney Weaver will be reprising her role as Ellen Ripley for a Dlc chapter that follows the crew of the Nostromo during their first encounter with the Xenomorph.

Joining Weaver is a majority of the original cast, including Tom Skerritt, Yaphet Kotto, Harry Dean Stanton and Veronica Cartwright. »

Guillermo del Toro Planning "Really, Really Bizarre" Black and White Film

9 July 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Guillermo del Toro is rounding out a few years where he was very forthcoming about projects he wanted to get done. It's a big part of what makes him endearing to his fans or general film goers who know how to apply potential to and idea then trust Del Toro. 

The downside to knowing a director's plans this far in advance is when one or more of the projects gets mired in development hell. At worst it's despair, at best it's just knowing that we'll have to wait much longer than we expected.

Guillermo del Toro has been less forthcoming about his long-view future (or it just appears that way with major studio megafranchises unveiling decade-long plans) while he's been in post-production on Crimson Peak, but he's starting to hint at what's to come. 

We recently learned he plans to shoot Pacific Rim 2 and Collider reports that he plans to shoot a smaller, »

Guillermo del Toro to Shoot New Movie Before Pacific Rim 2

9 July 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Vampires, Jaegers, Kaijus, a young author in peril: Guillermo del Toro has a lot on his plate right now with next week’s debut of his TV series The Strain, the recent announcement that he’ll be directing Pacific Rim 2 next year for a 2017 theater release, and the post-production on his horror movie Crimson Peak. But staying true to busy form, del Toro has added another project to his near-future workload, and it’s much smaller than his robot brawling blockbuster.

In a recent interview with Collider, del Toro revealed that in February or March of next year, he will begin shooting a small black and white film with a bizarre tone. The filmmaker will take a hiatus from the Pacific Rim 2 pre-production that begins in August of this year to shoot this smaller movie in early 2015 before jumping back to the large-scale sequel that is scheduled to »

Guillermo del Toro Reveals Plans For Black And White Project

9 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There must be something in the water down in Mexico, something that breeds incredible cinematic visionaries quite unmatched by their professional peers. Alongside filmmakers like Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu, Guillermo del Toro is one such talent – and it appears he has a lot on his plate.

Following the recent announcement that a sequel to Pacific Rim was hoped to be released in 2017, del Toro has also let slip that he intends to shoot a very small black and white picture before he sinks his teeth into another helping of kaiju/robot mayhem.

Considering his notoriety for being a director involved in certain projects that fail to get off the ground or result in his departure for varying reasons, it’d seem unsurprising that del Toro would remain relatively tight-lipped regarding his career choices – but with this double whammy of film news, I for one couldn’t be happier. »

Guillermo del Toro is a pretty busy man right now, with The Strain set to air on Sunday and Pacific Rim 2 in the works, but that won’t stop the director from taking a little time out of his day for passion projects.

In an interview with Collider, del Toro revealed that he’s planning a “small movie,” one that’s in black and white and “really, really bizarre,” before he gets to pre-production on the sure-to-be-even-bigger sequel to last summer’s blockbuster.
