Lucifer Goes 3-D in Alex Proyas' 'Paradise Lost'

16 September 2010 8:54 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Alex Proyas, the director of The Crow, I Robot, The Knowing and Dark City, is finding Paradise Lost for Legendary Pictures, signing to direct an adaptation of the epic 17th-century English poem by John Milton. The project tells the story of the epic war in heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer, and will be crafted as an action vehicle that will include aerial warfare, possibly shot in 3D. Stuart Hazeldine developed the primary draft of the screenplay that was originally written by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi. Lawrence Kasdan provided a polish as well as Ryan Condal, who delivered the most recent draft. The film will likely fall under Legendary's co-production and co-financing agreement with Warner Bros., which will distribute the film worldwide. Studio's opening "The Town," which Legendary produced along with Gk Films and Thunder Road, this weekend. »

“Grease” game puts musical fans in cyber Rydell High

24 August 2010 6:29 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: A discussion actually popped up on Twitter last night, as major movie bloggers began debating the merits of innocent Sandy versus the slutty Sandra Dee who pops up near the end of “Grease.”

The debate was triggered due to the fact that the classic movie musical was airing on AMC last night. (I admit to stopping on it for the last 15 minutes while channel surfing, because it’s nearly impossible to click onto “Grease” and not linger for at least a song or two). Oh, and I’d have to vote for sweet and innocent Sandy, because I never hand-jived with the “Grease” plot twist that, in order to get her man (John Travolta), Olivia Newton-John had to say goodbye to the girl she was inside. What a terrible message, set to a tremendous musical score.

Anyway, expect the debate to rage on for »

Video Vault – Explorers

15 August 2010 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

80’s Hollywood proved to be an incredibly fertile time for much-loved and long-cherished fantasy films. Thousands of column inches and blogging space has been devoted to the likes of firm favourites such as Ghostbusters, The Thing and the Indiana Jones series, but it’s sometimes the smaller films from that period (which for one reason or another got lost in the crush), that resonate more deeply with an audience.

For me, Joe Dante’s Explorers is one such example – a film which, coincidentally, celebrates its 25 anniversary this year, alongside two of the more obvious box office hits from that era, The Goonies and Back to the Future.

I remember first watching this in primary school as an end-of-term Christmas treat and being instantly smitten. Coming off the hugely successful Gremlins (which was made by Steven Spielberg’s company Amblin) Dante chose to direct this rather low-key and more personal feature. »

The Town Will Premiere At Toronto International Film Festival

27 July 2010 7:48 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Relax all you theater buffs… I said “The Town” not “Our Town“!

Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that The Town will premiere at the 35th annual The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff). The Gala Presentation and North American Premiere of The Town will take place on Saturday September 11th, 2010. The Town is Affleck.s follow-up to Gone Baby Gone (2007) and the adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel .The Prince of Thieves..

Melissa’s Two Cents: Before I display the synopsis, I have to point out that when I first saw this trailer, it looked like the girl was being kidnapped by the band ‘Slipknot’! I am not a ‘Slipknot’ fan, but that made the trailer look ten times cooler… and way more fun!

Synopsis:

Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. »

Grant Morrison's 'Joe The Barbarian' Optioned For Adaptation

27 July 2010 9:59 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Grant Morrison's newest Vertigo series, "Joe the Barbarian" is also his latest project to be optioned as a feature film.

According to Robot 6, Thunder Road Pictures — the producers behind the "Clash of the Titans" remake released earlier this year — are officially developing the adaptation of "Joe the Barbarian." "Thunder Road just called me today and said we can officially announce it, so I'm quite happy about that," said Morrison.

However, the report also indicates that Morrison will not write the screenplay. "Joe the Barbarian" debuted earlier this year as an eight issue miniseries by Morrison and artist Sean Murphy. The story follows a teenager named Joe who slips into a vivid fantasy world populated by his action figures and toy rats while he fights to stay alive in the real world after he slips into diabetic shock.

At least two other Morrison related film projects were announced during the »

Ricky Gervais on the Cemetery Junction soundtrack

9 April 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The writer/director/producer/failed pop star explains the music choices for his most personal work yet

Cemetery Junction is probably the most personal of all my work so far. Sure, I worked in an office for 8 years as a middle manager, like that David Brent, then I worked my way up in TV like that Andy Millman, and like most comedians, my stand up is observational. But Cemetery Junction is not only based on my memories of my most formative years but it feeds on the most fundamental things in the making of a man: family, economics, the time and place you happened to be plonked in. Even though the movie is a fiction, the values, themes and characters are based on my memory of growing up in Reading in the early 70's. The soundtrack had to reflect that. It's purely coincidence that the songs in the film happen »

Grease: Olivia Newton-John is Squeaky Clean, Jellybean

2 April 2010 4:06 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

The leading female character of Grease (1978), Sandy Olsen, played by Olivia Newton-John, is the character who wears the clothes most typified by fancy dress companies pertaining to sell costumes linked to the film.

Desperate to fit in at her new school, many of her clothes bear the ‘Rydell High’ logo in some way. Unfortunately for Sandy, she chooses ‘The Pink Ladies’ as her new best friends, the clique who find school far beneath their coolness. No wonder she is deemed by Rizzo as “too pure to be pink”.

We see this purity at the beginning of the film, where Sandy refuses to take her ‘Summer Loving’ with Danny a step further. Wearing a lilac hooded gym top and bikini bottoms, this is more revealing than her Rydell attire, but then again, this is the beach. We are immediately reminded of her warm, gentle nature as we are introduced to her flawless, »

Gene Barry obituary

21 January 2010 10:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Elegant star of Us TV series from the 1950s onwards

For any regular television viewer in the 1960s and 70s, the elegant actor Gene Barry, who has died aged 90, was inescapable. Most prominent was his portrayal of the Los Angeles police captain Amos Burke in 81 episodes of Burke's Law (1963-66). No ordinary cop, Burke was an immaculately dressed, jet-setting millionaire bachelor who left his Beverly Hills mansion in a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce to investigate a murder. Barry as Burke, a wisecracking, sophisticated ladies' man, was the nearest thing on TV to Cary Grant.

Each episode – bursting with Hollywood guest stars, one of whom was revealed as a murderer – allowed Burke to deliver an aphorism such as "never drink martinis with beautiful suspects: Burke's Law", or "never ask a question unless you already know the answer. Burke's Law".

Before playing Burke, Barry had triumphed in the western TV series Bat Masterson (1958- »
