Dark Horse Graphic Novel Polar: Came From The Cold Scores Big Screen Adaptation

11 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Poor Constantin Films is clearly trying to deliver a hit, but minus the Resident Evil franchise, the company doesn’t seem to be having much luck as far as the domestic box office goes.  I don’t even know what happened to that ridiculous looking Tarzan animated movie they were working on, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones failed to spawn a franchise and Pompeii didn’t do too well either.  Perhaps a graphic novel adaptation could get the company a winner. It’s being reported that Constantin is joining forces with Dark Horse Entertainment to turn the graphic novel Polar: Came from the Cold into a feature film.  Hit the jump for more on the endeavor. According THR, Constantin preemptively snatched up Jayson Rothwell’s spec script for the project.  The Victor Santos penned and illustrated graphic novel has been in stores for almost a year now and focuses »

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Constantin Film and Dark Horse Entertainment have launched development of a movie based on Dark Horse’s graphic novel “Polar: Came from the Cold.”

Jayson Rothwell wrote the script for the project, which Constantin’s Robert Kulzer will produce with Jeremy Bolt (the Resident Evil movies) and Dark Horse’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.

Shrek's Andrew Adamson adapting Breath of Bones comic

24 September 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andrew Adamson will direct an adaptation of Steve Niles's Breath of Bones.

The Chronicles of Narnia director has signed on for a film based on the 30 Days of Night co-creator's comic.

The Dark Horse Comics series centres around a golem - the Jewish myth of a clay giant animated by magic - which is brought to life to fight Nazis in World War II.

"Telling a story can be tough," Niles told The Hollywood Reporter. "It's the one monster rooted in religion and mysticism, so I wanted to be respectful.

"I decided to tell it as a World War II fable. It's a story of a grandfather teaching his grandson how to make a monster to defend his village against a Nazi invasion."

Matt Santoro served as co-writer on the comic alongside artist Dave Watcher.

Adamson directed the first two Shrek films, as well as Narnia movies The Lion, »

16 July 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, we reported that Warner Bros. is expanding their Leavesden Studios in the U.K. as Tarzan was about to start production, although that announcement did not reveal any plot details for this live-action adventure. Warner Bros. has confirmed that principal photography is under way in a press release, which includes the first official plot synopsis. Take a look at the story details below, then read on for more information.

"It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsg&#229rd) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom »

David Yates' Tarzan Movie Begins Principal Photography

14 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

David Yates, who helmed the last few Harry Potter films (and dominated with them), has officially begun production on his next flick, a retelling of Tarzan for Warner Bros.  The studios announced today that cameras were rolling along with some new details on the story this film will have!  

While my interest in another Tarzan film is almost non-existent, I am keenly interested in seeing what David Yates does next.  We haven't seen him do much since Harry Potter ended, and I'm hoping Tarzan will be another amazing film from him.  From the press release:

"Emily The Strange"

Development continues on Universal's live-action Dark Horse comic book adaptation "Emily the Strange".

Screenplay is by Kealan O’Rourke for Dark Horse founder and film producer Mike Richardson.

The character first appeared on a sticker distributed at concerts, record stores and skate shops to promote Cosmic Debris, a clothing line founded by artist and skateboarder Rob Reger, racecar driver Matt Reed and Nathan Carrico, who designed Emily in 1991 for Santa Cruz Skateboards in Santa Cruz, California.

"...'Emily' is a young girl who lives an alternative lifestyle. She is generally opposed to violence, hatred, prejudice, and is a vegetarian. Her best friends are her cats, and they seem to be the only beings she truly trusts. She carries around a slingshot and possibly other minor weaponry within her dress pockets. She normally wears a black dress that she describes to have abnormally large pockets. She is nocturnal, and homeschools herself. She »

Timecop reboot to move forward with Journey 2 writers

11 April 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The reboot of Timecop is moving forward after securing new writers.

Brian and Mark Gunn, best known for writing Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, have been bagged by Universal to script the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The original Timecop followed Jean-Claude Van Damme as a time-travelling policeman battling a corrupt politician.

It has been reported that the film will be tonally similar to Looper, with more emphasis on big-budget special effects.

Marc Shmuger has been confirmed as producer, and Mike Richardson as executive producer for the Universal film.

The Gunns are also currently working on a third Journey film, a MacGyver feature, and a remake of The Monster Squad.

Timecop Reboot Picks Up Screenwriters Of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

10 April 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Total Recall. RoboCop. Blood Sport. Godzilla. The Fantastic Four. The Pink Panther. Gremlins. For better or worse, Hollywood loves a reboot. The latest reboot to make the leap into development is Universal's Timecop. THR reports Universal has hired cousins Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn, co-writers of the Dwayne Johnson action-comedy Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, to write the screenplay for a rebooted Timecop. The original 1994 movie starred Jean-Claude Van Damme and was inspired by the comic book series by Mike Richardson and Mark Verheiden. The action flick was set in 2004, where--as the trailer below outlines--"time travel is a reality." Meanwhile, in actual reality it's 2014 and we still don't even have hoverboards, but I digress. Anyway, in Timecop time travel wasn't only possible, but also a criminal offense. It's just too tempting to go back and time and steal sweet loot (Time Bandits) or bet on sporting events you already »

Star Wars: Episode VII Location & Casting, He-Man Director, Woodland Avengers, Timecop Reboot, Karl Urban Talks Dredd 2

10 April 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Star Wars Last week, rumors began circulating that J.J. Abrams might be revisiting some of the classic environments of the original Star Wars trilogy in Star Wars: Episode VII, namely the ice planet Hoth and the desert planet Tatooine. Now, THR is adding some weight to at least half of that rumor by reporting that a "source" inside the production has revealed that Abrams is building a "re-creation of Tatooine." Abrams is a self-avowed devotee of the original movies and the entire Skywalker storyline revolves around the desert planet so this seems like one slam-dunk of a rumor.

Far less certain is the recent rumor that a virtual unknown has landed a major role in the new trilogy. Again, THR is out in front of this rumor, placing Oxford-educated actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers "in line to nab" a key role, possibly as the Jedi daughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi. So far, the »
