No, not That Nightcrawler. Alan Cumming’s job is safe should he is ever brought back to the “X-Men” franchise to reprise his teleportin’ role. (God knows with all the familiar faces Bryan Singer is stuffing into his “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, leaving ol blue-skinned Nightcrawler out is kind of weird.) Instead, Jake Gyllenhaal will star in a “dark drama” (as opposed to a “light drama”, I guess) called “Nightcrawler” that will be directed by Dan Gilroy, who will be making his feature film directorial debut after writing Hollywood blockbusters like “Real Steel” and the last “Bourne” movie. “Nightcrawler” will star Gyllenhaal as “a man in Los Angeles who tries his hand at freelance crime reporting.” The film will co-star Thor’s mom (and Dan Gilroy’s wife) Rene Russo, with production set for this October. Dan’s brother Tony Gilroy, along with Jennifer Fox and Gyllenhaal will co-produce. »

The Bourne Legacy may not quite have kicked the franchise in the robust new direction hoped for, but it certainly gave a boost to the professional clout of writer Tony Gilroy. He's now producing the indie thriller Nightcrawler, the directorial debut of his brother Dan Gilroy. Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo will be heading his cast.Dan also wrote the film, which involves "a driven young man who discovers the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in La". So nothing to do with blue mutants that go Bamf! then. Nor the Scottish techno band; telekinetic Twilight Zone military units; or that Brian Thompson guy in Cobra. Oh wait, he was the Night Slasher. Makes all the difference.Gilroy (Dan) was the co-writer on Legacy and has the "story" credit on Shawn Levy's Real Steel. He also wrote The Fall (directed by Tarsem, who appears elsewhere in news this morning), and, »

Last year, Dan Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy, Real Steel) signed on to write a screenplay based on Stan Lee’s newest character, Annihilator. Barry Josephson, of Bones and Enchanted fame, has joined Magic Storm Entertainment to produce.
Eric Mika, the CEO, had this to say about the deal: “Barry is the perfect partner at every level to produce a film of this magnitude that targets a global market, including mainland China…Barry’s talents combined with Dan Gilroy’s explosive script makes Stan Lee’s treatment extremely powerful and a cornerstone for a unique franchise.“
Annihilator concerns Ming, a Chinese ex-pat, who is given a choice to stay in prison or join a secret super soldier program in the U.S. Guess what he chooses. Sounds… wonderful? »

Back in the day Stan Lee created some of the greatest comic book superheroes of all time. Lately though the characters he's come up with have been pretty forgettable. But one of his latest characters he's created is Annihilator, and he's on his way to the big screen.
Annihilator is a Chinese prisoner who goes through a crazy scientific procedure in which he's infused with the powers of several different animals. Producer Barry Josephson (Enchanted, Bones, Wild Wild West) has signed on to help develop the film with Magic Storm Entertainment. The script was written by Dan Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy, Real Steel).
As much as I've enjoyed what Lee has created in his career this is one of those things that seems like it's going to be a hard sell. But, it looks like this is going to happen, and I hope it ends up exceeding my expectations. It's »

Stan Lee is known for some of the most recognizable superhero characters, including Spider-Man, Iron Man and the Hulk. And after all these years, he hasn't stopped contributing to the comic book world.

The film is already financed at around $150 million, will be written by Dan Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy, Real Steel).

Barry Josephson, producer of Enchanted and Aliens in the Attic, will produce Stan Lee's Chinese superhero movie The Annihilator. The movie is about a Chinese expatriot who makes a deal with the Chinese goverment: rather than go to jail, he'll sign up to be genetically altered for their supersoldier program. Josephson has serious kid cred as a producer, but he's also been behind one of TV's most unusual superheroes: he was the exec producer of "The Tick."
Dan Gilroy (Real Steel, The Bourne Legacy) wrote the script. The movie is being made by Magic Storm Entertainment, a compay created to make superheroes for the Asian marketplace. China's National Film Capital is helping finance the movie.

If you’ve been keeping up with the high-flying world of Stan Lee, then you know the legendary comic book writer has been trying to get a movie called “The Annihilator” made for some time now. “The Annihilator” is a new Chinese superhero character that Lee created, seemingly for the singular purpose of making a movie from it. (He’s not the first person to do this; this is pretty common nowadays with a lot of “indie” comic book publishers. It’s all about Hollywood, kids.) Anyways, in a story in THR about how the film project has added producer Barry Josephson to help out, we also get the really important news — new plot details for “The Annihilator”. It goes something like this: The Annihilator, which will be written by Bourne Legacy and Real Steel scribe Dan Gilroy, is the story of “a young Chinese expatriate named Ming, who must »
