The upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie adaptation has landed a writer.

According to Deadline, British writer Jay Basu will pen the script for the Sony Pictures project.

It was revealed last year that the film will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Robert, with Avi Arad (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Fantastic Four) producing.

Vogt-Robert's previous credits include The Kings of Summer, while Basu's Monsters: Dark Continent is in post-production.

Plot, dates and casting details for the upcoming movie are yet to be announced.

It was recently revealed that Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima would leave Konami after finishing work on Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

'Fantastic Four' International Banner Finally Shows Off The Thing

25 March 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following yesterday's new poster for Fantastic Four, which showed a vague display of powers from the quartet of Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell, we have a new look at the team, but this one reveals a bit more. While the teaser trailer and even yesterday's poster have obscured our look at The Thing from any angle other than behind is naked stone body, an international banner has gone up that gives us our first good lock at the clobbering hero from the front. And he looks...exactly like you'd expect him to look. Hopefully he's less of a punchline than the one Michael Chiklis played before. Look! Here's the international banner for Fantastic Four from Instagram (via Superhero Hype): You can also watch the first teaser trailer for Trank's Fantastic Four right here. Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and written by »

First Look at 'Fantastic Four's The Thing

25 March 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There's a reason studios should stop trying to hide elements of their films from the online audience, and it's because the first look fans get at something you've been trying to hide should not be in the form of a washed out Instagram picture (via albertoheineken26), but that's the case when it comes to The Thing from Josh Trank's upcoming The Fantastic Four reboot as you can see below. What you can't tell is the human form of the giant rock man is played by Jamie Bell in the movie. Unlike the version played by Michael Chiklis in the previous attempts to bring the superhero family to life, this will be an all-cg creation and, I assume, more akin to the Hulk from The Avengers than the foam rubber character Chiklis played. I have to assume 20th Century Fox will try and release an official picture soon enough, but »

Miles Teller hints that the classic costumes will appear in Fantastic Four

17 March 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The reaction to the trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four was decidedly divisive. If the trailer did anything, it swayed those worried about the film either firmly into a hate or love perspective on the movie. Personally, I liked the way the trailer looked and it did exactly what it was supposed to do and intrigued me further about the project. After the pair of Tim Story directed Fantastic Four films, it seemed apparent that fans didn't want a version faithful to the comics, so here is »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Black Panther'

12 March 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Further to Marvel Studios filming certain sequences of "The Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", in Cape Town, South Africa, reports continue to surface that Marvel Comics' superhero 'T-Challa' aka 'Black Panther' (Chadwick Boseman) is introduced in the new film:

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" production hired 'extras' for a location shoot in Cape Town.

"Filming in South Africa provides the 'Avengers' an opportunity to seek out 'T'Challa' aka 'Black Panther'...

"...whose homeland of 'Wakanda' exports 'vibranium', a metal alloy coveted by 'Ultron'...

"...that was compounded with 'adamantium' to make Captain America's original triangular shield. 

"The disc-shaped shield currently used by Cap is made of pure vibranium..."

Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and illustrator-co-plotter Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics, 'Black Panther' debuted in "Fantastic Four" #52 (July 1966), as the first black superhero in mainstream comics.

Michael Davis: A Comic Book Tale – The Director’s Cut

Fair warning: this one is long and a bit sappy. I would, however consider it a personal favor if you would give it a read and send me a hug.

I need one.

Ok, another version of this article will be appearing on Bleeding Cool but this is the Mike Gold special edition, chock full of what’s not in the BC article.

A week or so ago I was writing the fuck you article to beat all fuck you articles. You would think with the year I’m having, I’d be ranting away all the time but somehow that’s not been my aspiration. Nope. Some how I’ve avoided ranting anywhere but on Facebook. I don’t have a lot of Facebook friends as I choose to police my page like Ferguson P.D. so anyone I don’t know, I shoot down their friend request like a unarmed black kid. »

12 landmark performance capture turns: From Ahmed Best to Andy Serkis

7 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.

Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.

Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.

Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.

VOD Review – Playing It Cool (2014)

2 March 2015 6:11 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Playing It Cool, 2015

Directed by Justin Reardon

Starring Chris Evans, Aubrey Plaza, Michelle Monaghan, Topher Grace, Ioan Gruffudd, Martin Starr, Luke Wilson, Anthony Mackie and Ashley Tisdale

Synopsis:

Unrequited love motivates a guy to write about his experiences.

First time director Justin Reardon clearly has a lot of friends in high places. Along with first time writers Chris Shafter and Paul Vicknair, they have managed to amass a cast that includes Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie, Spider-Man 3‘s Topher Grace, Fantastic Four‘s Ioan Gruffudd and Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza, as well as Martin Starr, Luke Wilson and Michelle Monaghan. Now a cast list wouldn’t seem that out of the ordinary for most motion pictures, this is for Playing It Cool (formally A Many Splintered Thing), a simple rom-com that is now available on VOD. Is it a bad movie? »

'Fantastic Four': Miles Teller on Mr. Fantastic's Powers

27 February 2015 6:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Warner Bros. and DC have tried for years to launch a Plastic Man movie, they still haven't found the right way to do the character justice. Not even with their upcoming slate of superhero films. But Marvel and 20th Century Fox long beat them to the punch with their official Fantastic Four movie way back in 2005. Its true that Mister Fantastic shares some of the same stretching abilities, which were put on display in two sequels. Now a reboot is coming this summer. So what will this new stretchable superhero look like? While we didn't get to see Mister Fantastic go to work in the trailer, actor Miles Teller, who is rebooting the iconic role of Reed Richards, offers an answer.

Speaking with Empire, the actor doesn't exactly explain the science behind Reed Richards, but he does explain that he tried to learn the meaning behind the technical dialogue as best he could. »

Director Josh Trank discusses The Fantastic Four reboot, Michael B. Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm and paying homage to the comic books

26 February 2015 12:58 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning we brought you four new images from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four [check them out here], and now Cbm has posted some quotes from director Josh Trank in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, where he offers up his thoughts on the difference between the new film and the studio’s first two Ff movies.

“The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish. It’s just not something that me and Simon are interested in as storytellers. There’s the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic. The opportunity is right there in the material. We’d rather steer it in that direction as opposed to just embracing a tone that comes right off the page.”

Trank went on to discuss Michael B. Jordan’s casting »
