‘The Birth of a Nation’: How Nate Parker Produced His Controversial Slave-Revolt Drama
It’s well known at this point that Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” was bought for a record-setting $17.5 million at Sundance this year, just as it’s well known that the writer/director/star — and by extension the film itself — is now mired in controversy. Less well known until now is how “The Birth of a Nation” was financed in the first place. The Hollywood Reporter broke down the $10 million that went into the project earlier this year, noting that Parker put $100,000 of his own money into it.

A dozen or so other sources backed him. Parker, Jason Michael Berman of Mandalay Pictures and Kevin Turen are responsible for tracking down approximately 60 percent of the film’s funding, with most of the rest coming from Aaron L. Gilbert of Bron Studios. Filmmaker Edward Zwick

Image announces Cold War thriller Mayday, check out a preview here

Image Comics has announced the upcoming release of the Cold War thriller Mayday from the creative team of writer Alex de Campi (No Mercy, Grindhouse), artist Tony Parker (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, This Damned Band) and colorist Blond (Red Hood and the Outlaws, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?). Check out a preview of the first issue here…

“Mayday is a very fast-paced, violent, 5-issue miniseries with a lot of sex and drug use (hey, they always say “write what you know”). But it’s also got that early-1970s thriller thing going,” said de Campi. “You can tell a lot about an era by its criminals.”

It’s 1971, and two young Soviet operatives are sent to California to kill a defector and recover top-secret information. As the mission dissolves into a mess of good sex, bad drugs, and ugly violence, the young Russians face a new problem:

The Nate Parker Interview: What’s Next for ‘The Birth of a Nation’

Two weeks ago, Nate Parker was a different man — on the verge of making it on Hollywood’s A-list with his American period drama “The Birth of a Nation.” He strolled into a restaurant in Sherman Oaks, Calif., with his 6-year-old daughter in tow. “My wife just had a baby, so I’m taking the burden off her,” he told a Variety reporter about his fatherly duties. He talked about how his oldest of five daughters is gearing up for her freshman year in college, and how he recently surprised her with a visit to New York to see “Hamilton.” And he seemed most proud of the legacy he was leaving for his children as the director, star, producer, and writer of “The Birth of a Nation,” the Sundance Film Festival darling about the slave revolt of 1831 led by Nat Turner, which sold for a record-shattering $17.5 million to Fox Searchlight.

‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ Omnibus is A Fair Interpretation of the Novel

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? #1-24 (2009-2011)

Written by Philip K. Dick

Artwork by Tony Parker

Colors by Blond

Letters by Richard Starkings

Published by Boom! Studios

Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? originally started off a novel and soon had the film Blade Runner based on it. Fans of Blade Runner maybe taken aback at the contrast of the comic to the film adaptation. But still Tony Parker teamed up with Philip K. Dick’s original text to create a graphic novel version of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? This allows the combination of comic images and the original text to flow fairly well together. Dick’s writing remains the strength from the original source, but some may find the beginning issues heavy on narration and information. The text heavy sections can be forgiven as Dick eloquently works to build his world in these sections.

‘This Damned Band’ #1 is a typical rock doc with a supernatural twist

This Damned Band #1

Written by Paul Cornell

Art by Tony Parker

Colors by Lovern Kindzierski

Published by Dark Horse Comics

This Damned Band #1 starts to answer this question, “What if the Satanic connection that fundamentalist Christians said rock ‘n’ roll bands had was actually true?” The comic follows a British five piece called Motherfather as they play a show in Japan, get laid backstage, say all kinds of supernatural mumbo jumbo, and keep forgetting that they’re in a documentary. Sadly, writer Paul Cornell doesn’t go beyond rock star excesses for most of the issue with the exception of Kev trying to have a wife and four kids while his bandmates have an impromptu drug filled orgy. There is also Clive, who calls himself the “creator” of Motherfather, and starts out as a posturing, mane sporting frontman a la Robert Plant, but becomes more twisted as the story progresses.
