Zak Penn Says There Was "Discussion" To Use Red Skull As The Villain In The Avengers

28 July 2012 4:44 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Comic Book Resources have posted their recap of Zak Penn's "Hero Worship" (his new Avatar Press series with co-writer Scott Murphy) panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, and some new details about what he had planned for The Avengers have emerged. Of course, once Joss Whedon took over, the director rewrote the script and reportedly used few elements from Penn's screenplay; something surely only fans of Elektra and X-Men: The Last Stand were disappointed about. He told those in attendance that it was, "My job was to keep revising the draft...for about four or five years, that's what I did. The story was basically the same, but it kept shifting. Then, once Joss (Whedon) came in, he took over from there." Penn goes on to reveal that Marvel Studios had no contingency plan if any of the solo movies had failed and that he didn't think it was »

Space Quest Creators' 'SpaceVenture' Successfully Funds its Launch

12 June 2012 2:30 PM, PDT | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

By Jeffrey Matulef

While actual space program Nasa is recieving massive budget cuts, sci-fi comedy adventure SpaceVenture has been successfully funded on Kickstarter.

The upcoming adventure comes from the minds of Space Quest creators Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy aka Two Guys from Andromeda.

Their goal was to raise $500,000 which they exceeded last night mere hours before the deadline. The final tally came in at $541,371 (including PayPal contributions) after being funded by 10,809 backers. Those late to the party can still pledge on PayPal.

SpaceVenture will continue in the vain of the Space Quest series, and is described as, "A game that you will feel comfortable playing with your children, but with some entertainment that will safely appeal only to the adult psyche." It will also have "hilarious death sequences."

The game will carry such star power as Gary Owens (voice of Space Ghost), Ellen McClain (GLaDOS), and Rob Paulsen (Pinky, »

A new trailer for Touchback has debuted. It shows Kurt Russell as a high school football coach giving advice to star player Scott Murphy (Brian Presley). Years later, Murphy is a washed-up farmer who cannot afford to pay his debts, having permanently injured his knee in a game years before. When he is given the chance to go back and relive those last days before his injury, he seeks the aid of his old coach in deciding whether it is worth giving up what he already has. > Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell, Beyoncé & Jay-z: Hollywood (more) »

Trailer For Football Drama Touchback Offers Tempting Second Chance

29 February 2012 3:36 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Whether or not you're a sports fan, there's something about sport-centered movies that is undeniably compelling. The stakes run high while the characters run in slow motion, and the climax is often one that makes crowds stand up and cheer. A good sports movie pays off like your favorite team on their best day, and this is why I'm looking forward to the upcoming football-focused drama Touchback. Writer-director Don Handfield is making his feature debut with this wish-fulfillment tale that centers on Scott Murphy, a promising high school athlete who seems destined to go pro and leave his humble hometown behind him. However, his prospects of a career in football are shattered when he's injured in an ill-fated game. 15 years later, he's a married man with a couple of kids, a gimp leg, and one major regret. Then one day, while wishing he could have done things differently, he's magically »

Just when you thought you had seen every football movie, someone decided to add time travel into the mix! No, it won't be via a Delorean, or a blue telephone booth. But it could be a magic football! Touchback follows Brian Presley as Scott Murphy, an injured player who is given a chance to go back and relive his greatest game. A game that caused him a near-crippling injury, and left him with a bad leg. Presley travels back to 1991, and gets to relive the moments surrounding that game with »
