Edgar Wright's Collider lands new writer

11 August 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once he's done with Baby Driver, Edgar Wright may well direct sci-fi movie Collider, which now has a new writer on board...

The next project on Edgar Wright's slate to direct is Baby Driver, that Sony announced last week was set for release in 2017. But after that, he may well be moving onto Collider.

A film that's been set up at Bad Robot, with Jj Abrams producting, word first surfaced on Collider back in the summer of 2012. Back then, Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend) was reported to be co-writing the screenplay with Wright. Few details were available on the movie, short of the fact that it's a science fiction project.

Fast forward to now, and still there are few details known, but it does still appear to be live and kicking. Mark L Smith has been hired by Paramount to take a pass at the film's screenplay, having recently co-penned The Revenant. »

Nicolas Cage as Scarecrow? Courtney Love as Harley Quinn? The maddest Batman movie never made

15 June 2015 4:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Imagine a Batman movie with Nicolas Cage as the Scarecrow and Courtney Love as Harley Quinn.

This may sound like a mad fever dream, but it came close to actually happening in the wake of 1997's Batman & Robin.

Prior to that franchise-killing film's release, director Joel Schumacher and I Am Legend screenwriter Mark Protosevich teamed up to work on a script that would return Batman to his dark roots as he faced a roster of psychotic supervillains.

Titled Batman Unchained, the film would have starred George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell with Jack Nicholson's Joker making a comeback to bring the Tim Burton and Schumacher films full circle.

Schumacher and Protosevich revealed that they had settled on Cage's Scarecrow and Courtney Love's Harley Quinn as new villains to introduce.

Quinn was actually originally considered to make her first live-action appearance in what would have been Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin follow-up, Batman Unchained, and what's more, she might have been played by none-other than Hole front-woman Courtney Love. In a rundown of all the failed Batman-related projects that came and went prior to Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins in 2005, The Hollywood Reporter has the details about Batman Unchained and the version of Harley Quinn that never made it to the big screen. Speaking with Mark Protosevich, who was in charge of penning the script for the film, »
