Power/Rangers Producer May Tackle Captain Planet Next

7 March 2015 12:08 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Adi Shankar is a bona fide, successful Hollywood film producer with movies such as The Grey, Dredd and Lone Survivor to his credit.  However, he also has a passion for self-expression, which he exhibits through his personal Bootleg Universe.  To date, his personal, creative outlet has tackled the Punisher (Dirty Laundry), Venom (Truth in Journalism), Judge Dredd (Judge Dredd: Superfiend)  and James Bond (James Bond: In Service of Nothing).   With no plans to stop, what other property could Shankar look to explore next?  Shankar told Comic Book Resources, "Captain Planet was my other favorite TV show growing up. The truth is, if you look at our world today, the world we live in right now, that is the world Captain Planet was fighting against. Literally, Captain Planet and the Planeteers lost. If they existed in our world today, they would be labelled eco-terrorists.  I had this whole idea for a »

'Power Rangers' Fan Film Featurette Goes Behind-the-Scenes

2 March 2015 1:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Adi Shankar released the latest installment from his Bootleg Universe, a new short film entitled Power/Rangers. Just a few days later, it was pulled from Vimeo and YouTube after a copyright dispute with Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers creator Haim Saban and his Saban Brands company. But the short film came back online over the weekend. Today, Adi Shankar has released a behind-the-scenes video featuring director Joseph Kahn on the set, along with stars Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek.

This is the fourth short film in Adi Shankar's Bootleg Universe, following The Punsher: Dirty Laundry, Venom: Truth in Journalism and last year's Judge Dredd: Superfiend. Joseph Kahn called this project a "deboot," which features characters popularized on the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, but in a much darker and gritty film that explores their origins.

Will Thomas Jane Return as 'The Punisher' on Netflix?

23 January 2015 4:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actor Thomas Jane has been making the publicity rounds lately to promote his new film Vice, which opened last weekend. For many fans, he will always be best known as Frank Castle in the 2004 comic book adaptation The Punisher and the 2012 short film The Punsher: Dirty Laundry. You may recall that, back in May 2013, Marvel reacquired the rights to The Punisher, although the studio has yet to announce any movie or TV plans for this iconic character yet. Though, there have been plenty of rumors that The Punisher will return in the Netflix series Marvel's Daredevil, or possible his own show. During an interview with I Am Rogue, Thomas Jane was asked if he'd consider playing Frank Castle once again. The actor reveals that he's "done" with playing this beloved character:

"I feel like I've done it. That's why I did the short film. I wanted to create something that »

Kristen Stewart Does Not Want “More Tabloid Coverage,” Despite Insane Story

16 January 2015 8:07 AM, PST | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

Kristen Stewart doesn't want “more tabloid coverage” of her, despite an insane new story. As Gossip Cop has repeatedly reported, the actress has little interest in the media. In fact, although she knows it’s necessary, Stewart doesn’t even feel comfortable doing promotional work for her films. That’s why a new bogus report from Celeb Dirty Laundry, claiming Stewart “wants more tabloid coverage” is beyond wrong. »
