Alex Kurtzman To Direct The Mummy Reboot

45 minutes ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Universal Pictures have kept their Mummy perfectly preserved for decades now, with not even an encounter with Brendan Fraser able to fully put it down. And he’s usually enough to kill any franchise dead. Now the classic movie monster is set to rise from its crypt once again thanks to writer/producer Alex Kurtzman – best known for his screenwriting work with former partner Robert Orci – who is now set to direct the film, too, making it his second time in the chair following underwhelming 2012 indie drama People Like Us. Which probably won’t have much in common with The Mummy.

Kurtzman is reportedly in final negotiations with Universal to helm the film he was already producing with Chris Morgan, part of an ongoing initiative to resurrect all of the classic Universal Monsters: not just toilet paper-wrapped Imhotep but also the Creature From The Black Lagoon, Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster, »

Superheroes Get Rockstar Makeovers

29 July 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Everyone has a secret made up rockstar identity in their head, right? If you could play the actual guitar, not just air guitar, you know the name of your band, how you’d dress, the kind of music you’d play, which supermodels you’d date, etc. When I was seven, my fictional rockstar persona was lead singer of Emily and the Star Beamers. That has changed in the interceding years, but it’s still fun to think about when you are bored and stuck in line at the Dmv. 

It’s also fun to think about what superheroes might look like if they rocked out instead of (or maybe and also) kicked ass. Artist Andrés Moncayo thought about that in great detail and whipped up these amazing illustrations of what The Avengers and the Justice League might look like if they were bands. How perfect is rockstar Thor? Thor »

Comic-Con: Sam Raimi Vamps ‘The Last Of Us’ Movie At Screen Gems Panel

25 July 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Screen Gems today trotted out a Comic-Con god in Sam Raimi, who dealt the kind of catnip that fanboys love. Raimi was there with Neil Druckmann, creator of the Naughty Dog game The Last Of Us, to talk about how that PlayStation 3 survival horror action game is being turned into a feature with Raimi producing and Druckmann now writing the screenplay. Screen Gems President Clint Culpepper, whose previous big vidgame-to-movie transfer was Resident Evil, basically has given over big creative controls to Druckmann in the movie transfer. That includes casting, and choice of director. At this point, Hugh Jackman […] »

Chappie Finally Revealed on New Comic-Con Teaser and Banner

25 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

'District 9' and 'Elysium' director Neill Blomkamp's latest robo-based venture into the realm of science fiction is being promoted at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. 'Chappie' is the story of an A.I. robot stolen by a couple of criminals intent of using him to help carry out their unlawful ways. Up to now we've had to imagine what dear old 'Chappie' looked like. I've had something between the robot from 'Robot and Frank' and Marvin the paranoid android from 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' in my mind but this new teaser and banner spotted at Comic-Con reveals something quite different and dare I say it very Blomkamp-esque. The movie stars Hugh Jackman ('Prisoners'), Dev Patel ('Slumdog Millionaire'), Ninja and Yolandi Visser of rap-rave band Die Antwoord, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret and the voice of Sharlto Copley ('District 9'). »

Will Maisie Williams Star In Sam Raimi's 'The Last Of Us'?

24 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sam Raimi announced at Comic Con that he’d be producing an adaptation of popular video game The Last of Us – and that Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams could potentially star in it.

'The Last Of Us' Movie

Raimi – who directed the the Evil Dead films and the three-film Spiderman franchise starring Toby Maguire – and Naughty Dog game author Neil Druckmann will be teaming up for The Last of Us feature film. Druckmann, who also served as the director of the video game, will serve as the film’s screenwriter, according to io9.

In order to agree to the film, Naughty Dog wanted to have final say on the director and the casting as well. "It's kind of on us not to make it suck," Druckmann said at Comic-Con. Raimi had said at one point that he worried that he’d have to protect the film from studio execs, »

First Poster Of Neill Blomkamp's Chappie

24 July 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

For Neill Blomkamp’s next slice of sci-fi freshness, Chappie, he’s tapping into a more comic vein that was evident in either District 9 and Elysium. Both of those have wit and laughs, but at the end of the day there’s only so much levity to be mined from the sight of Matt Damon being drilled into an exosuit. The film has a new poster timed with Comic-Con and it’s a bit of a doozy. The director rolled cameras in Johannesburg at the end of last year, with a cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Ninja, Yolandi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo and Brandon Auret, who is voicing the main character. The metallic dude it’s named for is shaping up to be the cutest ‘droid since Marvin, albeit in a grungy, lo-fi way.Chappie, penned by Blomkamp and his old District 9 co-writer Terri Tatchell, »

#SDCC14: Images From Neill Blomkamp's Chappie Hit Comic-Con

23 July 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Neill Blomkamp had a tough go last summer with the debacle of Elysium, and I'm hoping he can rebound with his junior effort. Here's some teaser images to whet our proverbial whistles!

This has promise. The images have a dirty, gritty feel to them, which I expect from Blomkamp, and the premise (from an earlier Sony press release) has me plenty curious:

Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes. The film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters.

At any rate, here's some of the images that our Dread crew managed to snap live from the Sdcc '14 floor.

Comic-Con: 'Chappie' Poster Brings Better Look at Robot Prodigy

23 July 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Little Lost Robot Chappie is making his presence well known down at the San Diego convention center, with Comic-Con preview night just hours away from kick-starting this epic event. Yesterday, we got our first look at this artistic prodigy in a banner spotted within the halls of ground zero. Now we get a better look at Chappie to discover he has some nifty graphitti skills and a pretty clear sense of who his family is. From District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, this will serve as his follow up to last year's Elysium.

After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot.

Chappie comes to theaters March 27th, 2015 and stars Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret. The »

The Con has been launching grounds for Blomkamp's last two sci-fi creations, Elysium and District 9, and while Sony doesn't have his latest film listed on any panels yet, it will be getting a reveal here as indicated by this banner. It's a very wide promo banner positioned right above the entrance doors, showing the robot drawing child-like sketches on a wall.
