19 March 2015 11:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Universal Pictures has continued to push forward with its prequel tale to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman by adding three actors into the mix to form part of the new dwarfs set to feature in The Huntsman.

Similarly to the original film, three British actors have been cast in the roles alongside the returning Nick Frost as Nion. Gavin & Stacey stars Rob Brydon and Sheridan Smith have joined the cast, as has Alexandra Roach who co-starred in 2013’s One Chance.

Cedric Nicolas-Troyan makes his directorial debut with the film, which has Chris Hemsworth (The Hunstman) and Charlize Theron (Ravenna) reprising their roles from the original, joined by Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) and Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year).

The prequel is set in the same world as the previous film, but tells a new chapter in the story which focuses on the Huntsman and Ravenna’s lives before »

Acclaimed Screenwriter David Koepp Will Unlock The Themis Files For Sony

10 February 2015 1:19 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his latest effort may have proved to be a turkey in retrospect, David Koepp’s writing and directing work on Mortedcai needn’t be an indication on the screenwriter’s venerable career. And it’s a reputation that means that talent is never far off of a studio’s radar, what with Sony Pictures tapping him to help adapt Sylvain Neuvel’s acclaimed novel, The Themis Files.

Described as a sci-fi tome, Neuvel’s book orbits around a young, 11-year old girl named Rose Franklin, who happens across an ancient alien artefact buried beneath the ground in South Dakota. When word begins to spread life wildfire of its existence, the Us government makes an unprecedented move to launch a global investigation into the extra-terrestrial object, and what it could mean for life on earth. Is it a weapon of mass destruction, or something else entirely?

David Koepp Adapting Sci-Fi Thriller The Themis Files For Sony

10 February 2015 12:07 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I’ve not read Sylvain Neuvel’s The Themis Files so I had to look it up. According to Neuvel’s own website, it’s a global conspiracy thriller about what happens when we start to find a giant humanoid something buried beneath the Earth.

My best guess is that this giant thing – a robot, a creature – was dismembered and buried in pieces for safety’s sake. Whether that’s for the safety of us humans or for the good of the aliens remains to be seen, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see this all end in an action face-off between a humongous robot and hordes of flying saucers. Or, maybe my imagination is a lot more B-movie influenced than that of original novelist Neuvel.

Sony have put a film based on the book into development and given the job of writing the screenplay to Spider-Man and Jurassic Park’s David Koepp. »
