TV versions of Night Mary, Five Ghosts, & untitled Warren Ellis series announced

5 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

TV versions of Five Ghosts, Night Mary, and Warren Ellis' first original TV series? Where do we sign?

News

San Diego Comic-Con now in full swing, Universal has announced a host of new in-development comic-to-tv adaptations, including an as-yet untitled collaboration between Warren Ellis and Gale Anne Hurd's production company.

First up is a TV version of Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham's Five Ghosts, a 1930s-set adventure story about a treasure hunter with the titular number of spectres living inside him. The twist (as if that premise needs more) is that said ghosts are literary phantoms Merlin, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Musashi and Dracula, all of whose abilities the hunter can dip into as necessary. Sounds pretty exciting, huh? Ucp agrees, and has optioned the TV rights to the series. The headache of portraying all that on the screen belongs to pilot writer Evan Daugherty (Snow White And The Huntsman »

‘Trees’ #3- Series seems to be going nowhere

23 July 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Trees #3

Written by Warren Ellis

Art by Jason Howard

Published by Image Comics

Trees might finally be starting to go in a specific direction, but it’s continuing to do so very, very slowly. This comic is not heavy on action, or even particularly interesting dialogue. If you’re looking for a one-sentence summary, it would be something along the lines of “A young woman follows an old man around town, and a woman tells her artistic neighbor to get out more.”

This issue is the first to not introduce any new characters and instead focuses on just three people: Chenglei, Eligia, and the old man in Italy. Eligia spends most of this issue trying to figure out who the old man is and mocks her boyfriend’s fascist gang. We learn that he is a professor from the University of Milan as he buys an edition of On The »

20,000 Days On Earth Trailer: New Docudrama Goes inside the Life of Musician Nick Cave

15 July 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Drafthouse Films has released the 20,000 Days on Earth trailer online.  The docudrama goes inside the life of musician Nick Cave.  Personally, I'm only familiar with Cave's work from his amazing score for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (which he composed with Warren Ellis, who also appears in 20,000 Days on Earth) and his screenwriting (he wrote the screenplay for The Proposition, Lawless, and the unmade, completely batshit/brilliant Gladiator 2).  I stayed away from this film at Sundance because I thought it could only be appreciated by Cave's diehard fans, but this trailer makes it look like the movie reaches for ideas that anyone can appreciate regardless of their familiarity with the musician. Hit the jump to check out the 20,000 Days on Earth trailer.  The film opens in select theaters on September 17th. Click over to Apple to see the trailer in HD. Here's official synopsis for »

Nick Cave's 20,000 Days on Earth releases first trailer

14 July 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nick Cave has released the first trailer for his docudrama 20,000 Days on Earth.

Kylie Minogue cameos in the teaser for the film, which blends the reality of the musician's life with elements of fiction.

Ray Winstone and musician Warren Ellis are among Cave's other friends and collaborators that appear in the film.

"Nick would have never gone for a straightforward rock-doc," co-director Iain Forsyth told the New York Times in a recent interview.

"We decided to go in a direction that combined reality with fantasy as seamlessly as possible - which, if you think about it, isn't too far from the transaction between a rock star and his fans. People want desperately to enter the world Nick creates in his songs.

"You can look around when the Bad Seeds are playing and see precisely which version of Nick - the junkie, the outlaw, the lover - each person in the crowd wants to be. »

Watch: First Trailer For Nick Cave Docudrama '20,000 Days On Earth'

People want desperately to enter the world Nick creates in his songs. You can look around when the Bad Seeds are playing and see precisely which version of Nick — the junkie, the outlaw, the lover — each person in the crowd wants to be.” And it's those many personas that be playfully addressed in the film, which follows a fictional Cave over the course of 24 hours, and will see him roll with pals like Ray Winstone and Kylie Minogue. The movie examines his songwriting process, live show performances, friendship with longtime collaborator Warren Ellis, »

Watch This: 'Shadows In The Valley' - A Tribute to Dp Roger Deakins

2 July 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

One of the real masters of modern cinematography is Roger Deakins, a British cinematographer who has been nominated a whopping 11 times for the Best Cinematography Oscar, yet hasn't won one yet. Every year he always seems to end up a talking point during the awards season, because every year he continues to turn out amazing work. Plot Point Productions has decide to pay tribute to Roger Deakins in a video they've just released called "Deakins: Shadows In The Valley", a five-minute montage of some of his best shots and visual techniques. From Skyfall to The Assassination of Jesse James to Fargo to Prisoners to True Grit, his work is always astounding to see, and this video beautifully highlights some of his finest work so far. Enjoy. That wonderful music is from The Assassination of Jesse James, the track "Song for Bob" by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. For more, see Plot Point's Vimeo page. »

Watch: 5-Minute Tribute To Cinematographer Roger Deakins, 'Shadows In The Valley'

2 July 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The CV of filmmakers cinematographer Roger Deakins has amassed speaks for itself, with the Coen Brothers, Andrew Dominik, Martin Scorsese, Sam MendesRon HowardEdward ZwickNorman JewisonM. Night ShyamalanPaul HaggisJohn Sayles and David Mamet all utilizing his exceptional talents behind the camera. And certainly we're big fans. Deakins provided our "Best Shot Of The Year" from Denis Villeneuve's "Prisoners" (and he'll be reteaming with the director on "Sicario"), and we took the time to highlight his 5 Best Films. And today we have another way to appreciate the cinematographer. A five-minute tribute, "Shadows In The Valley," has emerged online and it's an evocative summary of Deakins' work. Utilizing Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' "Song For Bob" from "The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford" (which is featured), the video runs through sixteen of Deakins' »

[Comic Execution] 6/27 – Trees, Mars Attacks: First Born, Nightbreed

27 June 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I Screwed Up.

Thanks to the kindly efforts of Mars Attacks: First Born author Chris Ryall, I’ve become aware that Comixology has been unintentionally misleading me. Really, if anything, I’ve been misleading myself but I refuse to take All the blame because, well, who actually does that, ever? Regardless, it turns out I’ve been sorely mistaken on the page count for several comics, including Mars Attacks: First Born, because two-page spreads are only counted as single pages in Comixology’s reader. As a result, the previous issue of Mars Attacks: First Born was actually a perfectly fine 21 pages and not a mere 20, as I said in my review. I didn’t discover this until after I’d already written this week’s review of Mars Attacks: First Born but in the interest of transparency, I left in my comments about the page count.

‘Trees’ #2 – an interesting issue that lacks direction

Trees #2

Written by Warren Ellis

Art by Jason Howard

Published by Image Comics

It’s hard to know what to make of this series. On the one hand, this issue has a lot more going on in terms of dialogue and exposition, and the premise of human life going on around the extraterrestrial is interesting.. On the other hand, there still isn’t much action happening in this book. Perhaps Warren Ellis is simply planning a slow-burn comic book that will eventually explode, or perhaps he wants to tell a story at an unusual pace. The book is offering tantalizing ideas of stories to tell, but at the moment, they’re nothing but glimpses of things that could happen.

Most of the issue focuses on the research group in Svalbard. One of the researchers, Marsh, has taken notice of the unusual black poppies growing on their research drone. He points »

Darick Robertson Wraps “Ballistic”, Teases “Oliver”

19 June 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Darick Robertson is one of my favorite people in the world. He’s the artist on what might be my favorite comic series of all time—Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis. He let me into his head during the creation process of Grant Morrison’s Happy! for our print issue #274. He’s busted his balls on the insanely crazy Ballistic for over a year now. And beyond all that, he actually dares to be a super cool dude who, at a recent convention in San Jose, was kind enough to sit down with me and show me concept art for his upcoming project for Image.

Famous Monsters. So you’re wrapping up Ballistic with Issue #5. The art is still so detailed, particularly during the explosive finale. All those heads…

Darick Robertson. Every scene and every moment is changing environments. It’s such a strange world that I couldn’t just draw »

Dynamite - Vampirella Model: Julia Leigh * Photographer: Ben Britt Photography Vampirella debuted in 1969 in a black & white magazine titled simply Vampirella. With a stunning cover by legendary artist, Frank Frazetta, Vampirella #1 quickly made publishing history with its depiction of a vampire heroine, and its success prompted comics giants DC and Marvel to launch horror titles of their own.

Many of these classic stories were illustrated by the legendary artist Jose Gonzalez and have remained quite popular with comics fans to the present day. After a brief publishing hiatus, Vampirella returned in 1992 and quickly regained her reigning status as the queen of all female comics characters! In continuous publication since her early 90s comeback, Vampirella has been written by top talents including Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Grant Morrision, James Robinson, Jeph Loeb, Warren Ellis, and »

[Comic Execution] 5/30 – ‘Nightbreed’, ‘Trees’, ‘Doctor Spektor’

30 May 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Can We Please Just Get A Comic Book Adaptation Of ‘Jericho’ Already?

And no, I’m not talking about that one TV show. I think they already did a comic of that and that got cancelled too.

No, I’m referring to the video game ‘Jericho,’ written by Cliver Barker. It is seriously gut-wrenching stuff. I mean, it wasn’t a great game. But it would make a hell of a comic book.

Nightbreed #1

Writer: Marc Andreyko

Artist: Piotr Kowalski

Publisher: Boom! Studios

Price: $4 (Digital)

I’m the worst Cliver Barker fan in existence. I’ve literally only read one book by him (‘The Inhuman Condition’ aka ‘Books of Blood Volume IV’) and I’ve seen a grand sum of One movie based on his works: ‘Midnight Meat Train’ (‘Rawhead Rex’ doesn’t count). And yes, this means I’ve never seen ‘Candyman,’ though I’ve listened to the »

Trees #1

Written by Warren Ellis

Art by Jason Howard

Published by Image Comics

We are living in the midst of a boom in good Science-Fiction comic writing. Trees is the latest Sci-Fi story from acclaimed author Warren Ellis. The comic book deals with the discovery of alien life, or more specifically, the fact that alien life doesn’t regard humanity as being particularly significant. The book takes place in three different locations and examines how human society has been shaped and changed by the presence of intelligent life that has, quite literally, been placed smack-dab in the middle of our civilization.

The story takes place ten years after the so-called “Trees” have landed all across Earth. Their purpose is totally unknown to human beings, and apart from the fact that the Trees discharge toxic waste periodically, they do not interact with our species at all. The book focuses on the »
