Director Michel Gondry Claims Those Unhappy With The Green Hornet are "Fascists"

15 December 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

The Seth Rogen headlining film has had it's fair share of production concerns from fans and the studio alike, and now it's director announces why the "nerd community" is rebelling against it. Sony Pictures upcoming action film, The Green Hornet, hits theaters next month, and fans will finally be able to judge whether their hesitation about the movie a is warranted. The Green Hornet is one of the most beloved pulp characters of old, falling along the same lines as The Lone Ranger and The Shadow.

Quentin Tarantino Says 'The Shadow' Rumors Are 'Totally Made Up'

2 December 2010 10:13 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

When we spoke with Quentin Tarantino around this time last year, he was still focused on promoting "Inglourious Basterds," his summertime blockbuster that ended up nabbing eight Oscar nods. The writer/director wasn't yet ready to turn his attention to any of the rumored new projects swirling around him, like a third "Kill Bill" film or a spaghetti western dealing with American slavery.

Tarantino, in other words, likes to keep his creative cards close to his chest.

More than eight months after he spoke with MTV News, another rumored directorial project popped up: a live-action film based on The Shadow, a popular, crime-fighting pulp character. His reps quickly shot down such talk, but we wanted to go to the source himself.

So, when we caught up with Tarantino on the red carpet for his Friars' Club Roast on Wednesday (December 1), we asked if there was any truth to those "Shadow" rumors. »

What happened to comic book movies in the 1990s?

5 November 2010 6:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the movie schedules jam-packed with comic book movies right now, why was the 1990s so poor for them? Simon finds out…

It's already been pointed out far and wide on the Internet, but the summer schedules for the next two years are looking jam-packed with blockbusters. And more and more of them are being derived from a comic book source. Furthermore, it's not even the summer alone that's playing host to such films, either.

Next January, for instance, in a completely out-of-season slot, we get The Green Hornet. And that's going to kick off a series of films that includes two new X-Men movies, at least, Thor, Captain America, The Dark Knight Rises, Ghost Rider 2, The Avengers, The Green Lantern, possibly Deadpool, Iron Man 3, G.I. Joe 2, Sucker Punch, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, Superman, Fantastic Four and Daredevil reboots, Ant-Man, and Judge Dredd. That's just for starters, and »

Faster Set Visit: The Faster Chronicles Chapter Two

11 October 2010 11:39 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If there's one actor I'm a fan of, it's Dwayne Johnson. Formerly known as (and sometimes called still) The Rock, Dwayne has managed to successfully make the leap from wrestling ring to big screen. He did this by taking on a bunch of action roles like The Scorpion King, The Rundown and Walking Tall, before movie into family films like The Gameplan and Tooth Fairy. Now The Ro...excuse me, Dwayne, is returning to the genre that made him a superstar – action. Dwayne's new movie Faster looks to be a nice return to Dwayne doing what he does best – kicking everyone's ass. Here's the official synopsis for Faster: "Faster" follows an ex-con (Johnson) as he sets out to avenge his brother's murder with a deadly to-do list. Gugino plays Cicero, a detective who is hot on his trail as she diligently connects details of this recent crime spree with »

Tarantino Sees His 'Shadow'? Johnson Out of 'X-Men,' Kosinski's 'Oblivian' and 'M:i 4' News

6 August 2010 6:57 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've got a long list of updates and rumors for you today and perhaps the most interesting of which comes courtesy of Pajiba, which has it from a source that Quentin Tarantino is either "being discussed or already attached as the future director of The Shadow." Should this rumor prove true it would also mean Tarantino would serve as co-writer.

Sam Raimi and David Slade (30 Days of Night, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) had previously been attached to direct the movie, based on a crime fighting vigilante who began popping up in serial radio programs and magazines in the 1930s. Alec Baldwin starred in the most recent film adaptation, a 1994 release directed by Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction).

It should be noted that an official Tarantino representative has told MTV News there is no truth to the story, but this type of pulp crime story sounds like it would be right down his alley. »

Quentin Tarantino to Direct ‘The Shadow?’

5 August 2010 12:31 PM, PDT | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Quentin Tarantino is a possibility to direct The Shadow, an updated adaptation of the crime-fighting vigilante from the 1930s radio serial.  The cult filmmaker is reportedly attached to co-write and helm the remake.

Sam Raimi was loosely attached to produce a reboot the series at Sony until the property changed hands to Fox earlier this year.  Pajiba reports David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) even considered directing the remake before the property passed under the eyes of Tarantino.

Siavash Farahani wrote the current draft, which is full of campy fun and gruesome action, but at this point the script is back out for a rewrite.  Perhaps to Tarantino?

Who knows if he’ll wind up involved in any way, but the prospect of Qt getting his hands on just about anything warrants a glance, especially if it erases the memory of Alec Baldwin’s odd 1994 version.  (For the record, MTV »

Tarantino To Direct "Shadow" Reboot

5 August 2010 7:54 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Quentin Tarantino has apparently become attached to the reboot of "The Shadow" currently in development at 20th Century Fox reports Pajiba.

Sam Raimi and later David Slade had been attached to the project when it was setup at Sony Pictures. Sony sold the rights earlier this year to Fox but at last report Raimi was still attached as producer.

Tarantino is now said to be re-writing Siavash Farahani’s script. If true, the move comes as a big surprise as Tarantino is linked to plenty of other projects but his name has never come up in regards to "The Shadow" before.

"The Shadow" debuted in 1931 on a CBS radio show and followed the adventures of a crime-fighter who skulked in shadows wearing a hat and cape, and who had the power to cloud men's minds.

The character went on to become one of the greatest pulp heroes of the time, »

Quentin Tarantino dismisses reports he is to direct The Shadow

5 August 2010 4:53 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Quentin Tarantino has denied suggestions that he is in discussions with 20th Century Fox to write and direct a new version of The Shadow.

The cloaked crimefighter - an expert marksman with the hypnotic power to 'cloud men's minds' so he becomes invisible - originated in pulp magazines and radio dramas in the 1930s and was portrayed by Alec Baldwin in a 1994 film.

Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is a huge fan of the character and had been attached to produce a new Sony film adaptation for several years. In January it was suggested he would also direct it, but he then became involved with a host of other projects.

With the project clearly faltering, Sony then sold the rights to Fox and it was rumoured that Twilight's Eclipse director David Slade would take it on, but he categorically dismissed those reports as "lies" and "total internet rumour."

Is Quentin Tarantino taking on The Shadow?

4 August 2010 10:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Does Quentin Tarantino know what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Is he really set to take on The Shadow?

Warts and all, the Alec Baldwin-headlined 1994 take on The Shadow remains a late-night favourite around these parts, not least for the moment where that little dagger turns into something out of a Gremlins movie. Sure, it's a clunky film, but it's a fun one, and I'm happy to sit through it whenever it pops back up on the telly.

However, its numbers were never such that it could inspire a sequel, and thus Alec Baldwin's hopes of headlining a superhero franchise disappeared right there. Yet, there's been chatter over the past few years about The Shadow being revived, and it's currently reported to be on the roster of projects over at Fox.

Interestingly, though, if a new rumour is to be believed, the fresh take on The Shadow »

Quentin Tarantino to Direct The Shadow Remake?

4 August 2010 5:13 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

First it was reported that Sam Raimi was considering to remake "The Shadow," the 1994 film that starred Alec Baldwin. Then came word that Raimi was attached only as a producer and that David Slade (Twilight Saga: Eclipse, 30 Days of Night) was in talks to direct. Pajiba is now reporting that Slade is no longer being considered to direct. Instead, 20th Century Fox is in negotiations with Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds), who is also attached as a co-writer. The story is said to ignore the 1994 film and will focus more on the classic pulp novels and radio show of the 1930s and 40s. "The Shadow" is not a big priority for Fox, but that may change if Tarantino signs on. »

Quentin Tarantino To Direct and Write The Shadow?

4 August 2010 3:47 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Hey guys, check out the latest Hollywood rumor! Quentin Tarantino is attached to co-write and direct a Fox’s reboot of The Shadow!

And if this is something that already sounds familiar to you, let us remind you that the last time we heard anything about the project Sam Raimi was attached. But we guess that’s no longer the case…

So, nothing is official yet, but according to Pajiba: “…The person that is now attached to the project is none other than Quentin Tarantino, who is also attached as co-writer….

Maybe he loved the original radio show and the pulps (which do seem up Tarantino’s alley), and maybe he saw Siavash Farahani’s script and decided that, if anyone could erase the memory of Alec Baldwin’s atrocity, it’d be him.”

Let us remind you that Russell Mulcahy directed a film adaptation in 1994 with Alec Baldwin as the lead, »

Big, Barely Credible Rumor Of The Day: Tarantino To Direct “The Shadow”

4 August 2010 2:03 PM, PDT | Movie Cultists | See recent Movie Cultists news »

You might want to take a trip down to the salt quarry before reading this post, but the big rumor of the day is that mega-director Quentin Tarantino is in talks to helm an adaptation of the old radio serial. Hey, they got Alec Baldwin the first time ’round.

Pajiba is the instigator of the rumor, taking a cue from their industry stool pigeon The Hollywood Cog. The chain of events leading up to this ‘news?’ So apparently Sony sold off the rights to The Shadow to 20th Century Fox earlier this year. As a result, Sam Raimi, who had been attached to the project for quite awhile, had decided to pass the directorial reins along to David Slade (Twilight: Eclipse). And now word is that Fox has dropped Slade for Tarantino, who’ll direct as well as put his hand in on a rewrite of the script. The industry »

Quentin Tarantino to Direct The Shadow?

Here's and interesting rumor to get you thinking. According to Pajiba Quentin Tarantino is attached to co-write and direct a new version of The Shadow at 20th Century Fox! I assume this is the same Shadow project that Sam Raimi is producing, and at one point David Slade (30 Days of Night) was rumored to possibly direct the film as well. It looks like that may not have worked out. 

The project is not a high priority project for the studio at this time, but it seems like they are trying to get it into development. Here is what the site reports:

It's currently out for a rewrite... However, the person that is now attached to the project is none other than Quentin Tarantino, who is also attached as co-writer... Maybe he loved [the] original radio show and the pulps (which do seem up Tarantino's alley), and maybe he saw Siavash Farahani's script and decided that, »

Quentin Tarantino May Hide Behind ‘The Shadow’

4 August 2010 11:39 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This past March we reported (via Latino Review) that as Sony sold The Shadow rights to Fox, Sam Raimi had passed possible directing duties to David Slade, who most recently did The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Now, Pajiba has new information that a new co-writer and possible director is attached. It is none other than Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds, Pulp Fiction).

It is not known the extent in which Tarantino is interested and it could be one of just the many projects the man is involved in. The Shadow originated in the 1930s as a radio serial (voiced by Orson Welles in some episodes).

Universal also produced a live-action feature of the comic-strip hero, starring Alec Baldwin as the dashing Lamont Cranston, who moonlights as hero vigilante The Shadow. His superpower is invisibility. It would definitely be interesting to see Tarantino take on a project like this, but I can’t see him doing it. »

Consider this a huge rumor for now, but the possibilities are too much for us to ignore.

Quentin Tarantino to Direct The Shadow?

4 August 2010 9:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Quentin Tarantino’s The Shadow.”  I like the sound of that.  Pajiba reports that Tarantino is currently in discussions to direct an adaptation of the pulp superhero The Shadow if he’s not attached already.  Pajiba also reports that Tarantino is also attached to co-write, which wouldn’t be a surprise since Tarantino has yet to direct a movie where he wasn’t responsible for the script.  Pajiba’s source on this one is the highly-trustworthy “Hollywood Cog” and a movie based on a pulp magazine hero who “knows what evil lies in the hearts of men,” sounds like something Tarantino could work wonders with.

Of course, there are many contradicting factors to consider.  Hit the jump to learn more about the project as well as a list of other films that Tarantino could also do as a follow-up to his Oscar-winning masterpiece.

In January, we reported that Sam Raimi »

Pajiba is reporting an interesting rumor that Quentin Tarantino is now attached to direct and co-write a new version of The Shadow at 20th Century Fox. The site says:
