Neill Blomkamp on Elysium: "I feel like I f**ked it up"

14 hours ago

Neill Blomkamp has admitted that he feels he "f**ked up" Elysium.

The Chappie director claimed that "[he] just didn't make a good enough film" when working on the 2013 Matt Damon sci-fi.

"But I just think the script wasn't... I just didn't make a good enough film is ultimately what it is. I feel like I executed all of the stuff that could be executed, like costume and set design and special effects, »

Bruce Lee's daughter Shannon developing new biopic of action star

17 hours ago

Bruce Lee's daughter is working on a new biopic of the action star and martial artist.

Shannon Lee aims to make a film that captures her father's "philosophies and artistry", something that she claims previous biopics have lacked.

As The Guardian reports, Lee is developing the movie in collaboration with Bruce Lee Entertainment and producer Lawrence Grey.

"There have been projects out there involving my father but they've lacked a complete understanding of his philosophies and artistry," said Shannon.

Grey said of the martial arts icon: "In this age of an increasingly globalised culture, I can't think of a more talented and innovative individual who embodies the best of east and west and who can inspire future generations. »
