‘Uncharted’ Game Director Denies Mark Wahlberg’s Involvement & ‘Family Dynamic’

29 December 2010 11:54 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A month ago, we reported that Mark Wahlberg would be starring as Nathan Drake in David O. Russell‘s adaptation of the bestselling video game series Uncharted. Now, ScreenRant reports (via Joystiq) that Justin Richmond, game director for Uncharted 3 has dismissed all the earlier reports as rumors:

“First of all, all that stuff was denied by David O. Russell,” Richmond said. “He actually called us up and was like, ‘I don’t know what these guys are talking about.’”

So not only is Wahlberg not confirmed as Drake, the “family dynamic” angle which had excited Wahlberg and Russell – while alienating many gamers – sounds like more of a contemplation by Russell than any concrete storyline.

It’s certainly not a surprise that these Hollywooders have trotted this Uncharted cart well before the horse. It could also be very good news for fans who are almost rabid to see Firefly star Nathan Fillion in the role, »

Probably False Rumor: Alan Tudyk For Ant-Man?

28 December 2010 5:37 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With the release of both Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger only a few months away and The Avengers scheduled to begin production in April, the next couple years are going to be filled to the brim with plenty of Marvel news. Thanks to the revelation at Comic Con, however, casting won't really be one of the issues...except in the case of Ant-Man. While he is the only key member of The Avengers that won't be featured in Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble film, Edgar Wright's script for a solo movie has been bouncing around for months and could very well start production in the next year. We've already heard plenty of rumors that have never been substantiated, specifically the one about Firefly star Nathan Fillion taking the part, but now we have a new rumor emerging - and it's one of Fillion's former co-stars.

As we inch ever closer to the year's end, we've ranked our favorite comics of the year, our favorite movies and television series, and even our favorite news stories of 2010.

After all, these were the stories that you were most interested in this year, and the subjects that brought readers to the site most often — according to our traffic data, at least.

Alan Tudyk is Ant-Man? Edgar Wright Says: "News to Me"

27 December 2010 4:10 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Filed under: Movie News, Hot Topic, Cinematical

Now that the holidays are finally over, we can all move on to more important things - like breathlessly reporting every casting rumor that comes down the pike for all of the upcoming superhero movies! The latest rumor involves Marvel's adaptation of 'Ant-Man,' a character even hardcore comic geeks don't seem to be that interested in seeing on the big screen. Undaunted, the big M is moving ahead with plans to bring the character to the masses, probably hoping for an 'Iron Man'-esque crossover hit.

For some time now, the actor garnering the most buzz to play scientist Hank Pym was 'Firefly' star Nathan Fillion. Fillion has become like a more mainstream Bruce Campbell - an actor beloved by the rabid cult of fans who follow his every move, but mostly invisible to the film industry at large. »

Once again, it's that magical time of year when we look back on the last 12 months and name our favorite people, projects, and performances that made it so memorable. Yesterday we gave you our list of the Best Comic Books, Webcomics, And Graphic Novels Of 2010, and now we turn our attention to the screen.

This year wasn't short on offerings in the comic book adaptation scene, with television hits like "The Walking Dead" enjoying a similar level of buzz as big-screen hits like "Kick-Ass" and "Iron Man 2." Impressive performances were hard to avoid, too — whether it was the young cast of "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" or the veteran stars of "Red." It was a banner year indeed, but here were our favorites from 2010.

Could Nathan Fillion Replace Mark Wahlberg in ‘Uncharted’?

21 December 2010 10:10 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s not an exaggeration to say that fans of the PlayStation 3 video game franchise Uncharted have continued to express their concern for director David O. Russell’s re-imagined take on their beloved treasure hunter, Nathan Drake.

Back in November, Mark Wahlberg confirmed that he would be stepping into Drake’s shoes but, considering the Uncharted film is barely a gleam in Russell’s eye at this point, is it possible that we could see a different actor step into the role? Maybe even fan-favorite Nathan Fillion?

Recently, YouTube user gregblessing27, caught up with Russell after a screening for the director’s critically acclaimed true-life-boxer-story The Fighter - confronting the director about the choice of Mark Wahlberg and championing the benefits of recasting Nathan Fillion (Castle, Firefly) in the part -- ...

Summer Glau: 'The Cape role is physical'

21 December 2010 5:04 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Summer Glau has revealed that she will play a physical role on NBC's upcoming drama The Cape. The actress told IGN that her character Orwell will face-off against Vince Faraday (David Lyons) in the series premiere. "She's willing to throw down," Glau explained. "This girl has been on her own since she was 12, so she's incredibly resourceful and she's not afraid of anything. She just makes her own rules." She added: "If you watch the next episode, you'll see more and more that she gets out of the lair and onto the scene." The former Firefly star also confirmed that she had visited 'circus school' to prepare (more) »

The Cape: Watch Out For Orwell! Summer Glau’s Character Makes Her Own Rules

21 December 2010 4:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

A gal who needs no introduction in the geek world, Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Firefly) is happy to talk about her new role as in NBC’s The Cape. Glau plays a character by the name of Orwell, a “shadowy figure on the internet who seems to know far more than she should about the goings on in the city The Cape lives in, and soon provides him with crucial support.”

Glau’s character works alongside the title character, Vince Faraday (David Lyons), a cop who is framed for a crime, believed to be dead and is fighting back by donning the guise of his son’s favorite comic book character, The Cape.

IGN recently spoke with Glau about her character, the special training she did for the show, and being a part of the sci-fi genre.

Fringe Friday Night Timeslot Inspires Firefly Style Opening Credits

20 December 2010 4:23 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Since the series is moving to Friday and the returning episode in January is titled Firefly, one YouTube user thought it was only appropriate to merge Fox's sci-fi series Fringe with the canceled but loved series Firefly by way of a snazzy opening credits sequence modeled after Joss Whedon's cult classic series. Gulacit says, "These are two of my favourite shows and wanted to do some kind of tribute to both of them, this is the result. I tried to do my best to be faithful to the original opening.” Hopefully this video will be the only similarity between Fringe and Firefly as the latter found itself canceled after being jostled around on Fox's programming schedule. Remember, Fringe isn't taking their Friday scheduling lying down as a new promo aims to re-animate the seemingly dead programming night by making Friday freaky.

Video: Fan Asks David O. Russell To Reconsider Nathan Fillion for ‘Uncharted’ Movie

20 December 2010 11:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When it was revealed last month that David O. Russell had found a leading man for his video game adaptation Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, fans went into an uproar because Russell had hired [1] Mark Wahlberg instead of fan favorite Nathan Fillion. A fan was videotaped approaching Russell at a recent screening of The Fighter at the Arclight Theatre in Hollywood, to see if the filmmaker would reconsider Fillion for the role. Even after being told by his agent that he watched an audition tape sent in by the Firefly star, Russell still has no idea who Fillion is and seems to have no knowledge of the internet campaign to get the actor cast in the big screen video game adaptation. The whole interaction is just really embarrassing. But I have a feeling that Russell's choice in Wahlberg is likely to haunt him for the next couple years as he encounters fans from around the world. »

'Fringe' exclusive: Fox execs on its 'deathslot'-spoofing promo and plans to attract new viewers

16 December 2010 5:27 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Ever since Fox announced it was moving its acclaimed but ratings-challenged sci-fi saga Fringe to Fridays from its current home on Thursday, fans have been blogging and tweeting much pessimism about the show’s chances for survival beyond this season. Friday is one of the least watched TV nights of the week, and in recent years, it hasn’t been too kind to sci-fi series — or at least Fox’s sci-fi series. See: Joss Whedon’s Firefly; Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Fox execs and Fringe’s exec producers have tried to get the word out that the network remains committed to the series, »

‘The Cape’ TV Spots Show Off Villains & Sidekick Summer Glau

15 December 2010 1:22 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

NBC is starting their latest promotional campaign for The Cape‘s two-hour pilot in January, and a pair of 30-second promos have been making the rounds on the network. The first shows off the titular character’s backup/sidekick played by Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and the second gives us a look at three of the series’ antagonists.

The Cape is NBC’s would-be successor to Heroes, which floundered and died after its fourth season earlier this year. David Lyons (ER) will star as the titular vigilante with backup from Orwell (Glau) the blogger/investigator. It looks like the show creators are trying to build a dynamic not unlike Batman and Oracle in their comic book forms. Prolific voice actor Keith David will play a mentor role.

We haven’t had a good look…

Fringe and Firefly: A match made for Fridays?

9 December 2010 2:45 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

January 21 will mark a day that will either bode very well or very poorly for fans of Fox's sci-fi braintwister Fringe. After all, it will mark the timeslot premiere of the show -- and it's in the Friday death slot. Many (though apparently not the show's execs) are worried that this is spelling the end for what many think of as the best show on television. Acknowledging that, Fringe is deciding to reference this through the title of its midseason premiere episode. The tongue-in-cheek name? "Firefly."

Firefly, if you don't know already, is one of the best -- and shortest-lived -- sci-fi television shows of all time. The show starred many actors who only came to fame after the show's cancellation, including Castle's Nathan Fillion, The Cape's Summer Glau, and V's Morena Baccarin. Even Mad Men's now-iconic Christina Hendricks, then unknown, had a recurring role. Sounds like a recipe for success, »
