Katherine Heigl in Talks for Thriller The Follower

8 December 2011 7:09 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

When was the last time Katherine Heigl did a movie that didn’t involve attempts at comedy, or, as is more often the case, romantic comedy? (Notice I said attempts, not necessarily succeeding. Ahem.) I can’t recall, but Heigl may be trying to step out of her wheelhouse if she successfully signs on to “The Follower”. No details about the film are known, but it is being described as a thriller, so, yeah, no getting knocked up by a stoner or marrying a handsome CIA killer in this one for Ms. Heigl. Heigl will star and produce the film, which will be based on a spec script by Tony Giglio, for Millennium Films. Giglio wrote the “Death Race” movies and directed the cop actioner “Chaos” (with Jason Statham, no less) and the thriller “Timber Falls”. I suspect he’ll attach himself as a director on this one as well, »

More On The New "Heart of Darkness"

25 October 2011 11:47 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A few months ago came the announcement that Peter Cornwell ("The Haunting in Connecticut") had been hired to direct "Into Darkness", a sci-fi reimagining of Joseph Conrad's classic 1902 story "Heart of Darkness" for Radar Pictures.

Today Coming Soon has posted a piece of concept art and an official synopsis for the project with its new spin on the Belgian Congo-set story which most will be familiar with via Francis Ford Coppola's re-imagination of it into his Vietnam war epic "Apocalypse Now".

Tony Giglio and Branden Morgan penned the script for this version which is currently in pre-production:

"Apocalypse 2388. Earth is on the brink of extinction. Legendary explorer Kurtz has been sent on a desperate last bid mission to scout an unknown planet on the far side of the universe. A planet that may sustain human life.

But communication with Kurtz mysteriously ceases and rookie flight officer Marlow is »

Death Race 2 Director Revs Up for Death Race 3

12 August 2011 11:59 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If you had told me when Paul Ws Anderson’s Death Race came out that it was destined to spawn a direct-to-dvd franchise, I would have rolled my eyes. Shows what I know. The Death Race franchise carries on with a third installment...and a familiar name in the director's chair.

Arrow in the Head reports that Death Race 2 director Roel Reine has signed on to direct Part 3, which will see Luke Goss returning as “Frankenstein” from the DVD sequel. DR2 scribe Tony Giglio is back also to pen the script.

Here’s what to expect from Death Race 3.

Death Race 3 will take place in a different prison in Africa, where the iconic character Frankenstein (played by Luke Goss) has to race his fellow prisoners in all newly designed and newly built ‘Death Race Cars’.

The great Danny Trejo and the lovely Tanit Phoenix will also be »

The genre-swap remake: a future trend in Hollywood filmmaking?

4 July 2011 9:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Warner Bros picks up a futuristic retelling of The Count Of Monte Cristo, Ryan wonders if we’re seeing the start of a new Hollywood trend…

Over at Variety, it’s being reported that Warner has picked up the script for another adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ novel, The Count Of Monte Cristo. It’s a film that’s already been brought to the screen many times, of course, most recently in the 2002 production starring Guy Pearce and Jim Caviezel.

This particular adaptation, though, is rather different, since it will update the 19th century tale to a rather more futuristic setting. It’s fair to say that Dumas’ novel, about a young man who’s falsely imprisoned, and then emerges years later, is potent enough to survive even the loosest retelling – Park Chan Wook’s brilliant Old Boy has distinct echoes of the book, even though it’s not an adaptation, »

Earlier, we reported on a planned adaptation of Alexandre Dumas. The Count of Monte Cristo that would be set in the distant future, so it only makes sense that we follow that up with news of a Heart of Darkness adaptation set on outer space.

Peter Cornwell to Direct Into Darkness, an Adaptation of Heart Of Darkness Set in Outer Space

29 June 2011 7:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Radar Pictures has signed Peter Cornwell (The Haunting in Connecticut) to direct an adaptation of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darnkess.  Tony Giglio (Death Race 2) and actor Branden Morgan repurposed the story for a sci-fi picture set in outer space under the new title Into the Darkness, because as we all know, space is a cruel, heartless bitch.  Variety reports Radar's Ted Field and Mike Webber (Twleve). Conrad's novella -- a scathing critique of European colonialism -- centers on Charles Marlow, an Englishman hired to transport ivory downriver.  It was most famously adapted (albeit loosely) by Francis Ford Coppola in Apocalypse Now.  Read the book synopsis after the break. The story tells of Charles Marlow, an Englishman who took a foreign assignment from a Belgian trading company as a ferry-boat captain in Africa. Heart of Darkness exposes the myth behind colonization while exploring the three levels of darkness that the protagonist, »
