‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Director Joachim Rønning in Talks for Michael Crichton’s ‘Micro’

6 April 2017 3:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joachim Rønning is in talks with Amblin Entertainment to direct its adaptation of Michael Crichton’s science thriller “Micro.”

Rønning teamed with Espen Sandberg to co-direct “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” and “Kon-Tiki.”

Amblin’s predecessor DreamWorks acquired the film rights in 2015 to “Micro” with Frank Marshall attached to produce. The story follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company, only to find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the rainforest with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

Darren Lemke, whose credits include “Goosebumps,” “Turbo,” and “Jack the Giant Slayer,” is attached to write the “Micro” screenplay.

“Micro” was unfinished when Crichton died in 2008, then was completed by author Richard Preston and published by HarperCollins in 2011. Crichton had teamed with Steven Spielberg for mega-hit “Jurassic Park” in 1993, a year before Spielberg co-founded DreamWorks Skg »

Ghost In The Shell (2017) review

17 March 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Scarlett Johansson stars in the cyberpunk anime adaptation, Ghost In The Shell. Here's our review...

Think about some of the techno-thrillers that emerged in the mid-90s: Sandra Bullock vehicle The Net, say, or Michael Douglas-Demi Moore harassment-in-the-workplace Vr opus, Disclosure. Watch them now, and they look almost painfully quaint.

Now take a look at Ghost In The Shell, director Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s manga; 22 years on, and it’s barely aged a day. It imagines a future where human and machine have long since fused; typists can have their hands replaced with ten-fingered robot limbs capable of banging out 1,000 words per second. Minds can be augmented for faster learning; eyes can be replaced with more powerful optical sensors. Yet in this future Tokyo, where humanity is on the cusp of leaving its body for a life in cyberspace, there’s a growing sense »

The erotic thrillers that followed Basic Instinct’s success

30 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 3, 2017

When Basic Instinct hit big, Hollywood went hunting for more erotic thrillers. Er, it found some. Includes Kevin Spacey with odd hair.

When a movie hits big out of the blue, it’s unwritten Hollywood law that the imitators aren’t too far behind. That’s why, after American Pie brought Porky’s-esque sex-tinged (late) teen comedies back to prominence in 1999, the box office was flooded with similar fare for years after. The Blair Witch Project, meanwhile, hit out of nowhere, and found footage horror is only now dying away. The late Wes Craven, meanwhile, wryly noted just how quickly Hollywood had cashed in on the success of 1996’s Scream, when spoof Scary Movie popped out the year after.

Going back to 1992, though, and it was the turn of the erotic thriller to enjoy its resurgence. »
