Bryan Singer Using Natural Light To Film Jack The Giant Killer

28 December 2010 4:01 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Jack the Giant Killer is a British fairy tale about a young brave Celtic who eliminates a number of giants during King Arthur’s reign.

In 1961, United Artists released a middle budget film produced by Edward Small and directed by Nathan H. Juran called Jack the Giant Killer. The film performed quite well at the box office.

Bryan Singer shoots a modern day fairy tale in which the ancient peace between men and giants is in danger, as a young farmer leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom in hope of rescuing a kidnapped princess. Starring Aaron Johnson.  By all accounts the movie is kind of an adult version of the original.

Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-Men 2) is planning to use a lot of natural light instead of usual extreme studio lighting. While talking about his plans for the film he expressed happiness to using the Epic Red for this one, »

No Fooling: Starz to Premiere ‘Camelot’ on April 1st

21 December 2010 12:51 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After critical acclaim with The Pillars of the Earth and Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Starz is preparing yet another epic fantasy/period piece for cable viewers. According to a press release, King Arthur’s legend of Camelot will premiere on April 1st – honest.

Starz has kept Camelot pretty close to the chest. While plot and production details are thin, we know that the same team that brought Showtime’s The Tudors to fruition will be behind the camera.

Exectuive producing are Morgan O’Sullivan and Michael Hirst, along with newcomer Craig Cegielski. Tudors was well-received, and the team should feel right at home with Anglican lore. Chris Chibnall, of British projects like Doctor Who, Torchwood and Law & Order: UK, is writing.

The cast is skewing young to fit the series’ focus on King Arthur’s adolescent ...

Starz's 'Camelot' Looks Legit

20 December 2010 10:38 AM, PST | Filmology | See recent Filmology news »

I came from one of those families that didn't have cable and was only allowed to watch half an hour of TV (specifically, PBS) a day, but still, I can't have been the only little girl obsessed with Arthurian legends. You know- Camelot. Not the Kennedy metaphor, not the musical, but like, King Arthur's Camelot.

As nerdy as that may have made me look as a child, it's only grown over time. The other day, heavily intoxicated at a Christmas party, I unthinkingly made a Lady of Shalott reference in casual conversation, thereby toeing the line between nerd and pretentious douche.

'Thor's Hamner,' Prince Charles, And Singapore Tgcc In Today's Twitter Report

10 December 2010 10:01 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Tony Moore's got big supporter on Twitter in his fellow Robert Kirkman collaborator Ryan Ottley, who made a public plea today get Marvel to let Moore do more Venom covers.

Cebulski, Matt Fraction and Ivan Brandon have all been signing, paneling and posting in their capacities there, though Fraction's impact on the Singapore dumpling supply might need to be independently verified.

Bryan Singer gives update on his remake of Excalibur

8 December 2010 3:47 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

The story of King Arthur can definitely be described as enduring. Rooted in the Dark Ages, it was shifted into the Middle Ages (with all the associated knights in armour, chivalry and damsels) by Sir Thomas Malory's classic 15th century work Le Morte d'Arthur.

With all the myth and mystery surrounding this semi-historical tale, not to mention its ingredients of love, power and betrayal, it provides rich material for literature, TV and film.

A third series of the BBC's Smallville-styled reimagining Merlin has just finished (with a fourth promised), while a 10-part miniseries called Camelot - starring Joseph Fiennes as Merlin, Eva Green as Morgana, Jamie Campbell Bower as Arthur and Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere - is in production in Ireland and will air on cable channel Starz in the USA.

Nicholas Cage Teaches 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice'

27 November 2010 2:08 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Nicholas Cage is an incredibly gifted actor who continues to display his passion for genre works by appearing countless adventure films. This past summer he was the mentor in The Sorcerer's Apprentice and is next seen in January's Season of the Witch. In this interview, courtesy of Walt Disney Home Entertainment, Cage talks about last summer's film, coming out on DVD Tuesday.

Question: How did you get involved with The Sorcerer's Apprentice?

Nicholas Cage: The Sorcerer's Apprentice began with my desire to play a magician in a movie. I played a magician of sorts in a movie called Next, which is when I became fascinated with ancient mythologies and philosophies from England. I loved the subject, so I had a conversation with Todd Garner – the producer of Next – and I said to him, “Boy, I’d really like to play a sorcerer from the times of King Arthur.” The »

The fantasy series, revolving around young versions of the legendary Merlin and King Arthur, is produced overseas for the BBC and is distributed all over the world.

At the time, Merlin creator/executive producer Johnny Capps said, "The upcoming season will add an exciting new twist to Merlin's ongoing struggle to protect Prince Arthur, as well as thrilling audiences with bigger and bolder action sequences, stunning CGI monsters, mysterious villains and comic fun for all the family."

Currently working on a few highly anticipated productions, including Frank Milller’s Ronin and the King Arthur legend Pendragon, he also has found time to play mentor and producer to writer-director Julien Magnat’s psychological thriller Faces in the Crowd.

Starring Milla Jovovich, queen of the Resident Evil films, the horror-thriller centers on a woman living with “face-blindness” after surviving a serial killer’s attack. As she lives with her condition, one in which facial features change each time she loses sight of them, the killer closes in.

White is a producer on the film along with Scott Mednick (Where The Wild Things Are), Jean-Charles Levy, Clement Miserez and Kevin DeWalt.

It’s slated to be released next year. There’s been no official release of a trailer yet but when there is you know S&A is on it! »
