It was originally believed that visual effects artist Tim Miller would be making his feature directorial debut with Deadpool, a film based on the much-loved loud-mouthed mercenary comic book anti-hero played by Ryan Reynolds, but given that project hasn't moved an inch in a long while it looks like another movie has caught his eye. The filmmaker is now attached to helm Seasons, a new science-fiction project based on a novella written by Joe Haldeman. Deadline reports that the story follows a group of scientists as they board a space ship to visit an alien world. Unfortuantely, the world is filled with "sentient humanoids" and everything goes to hell in a hand-basket. Sebastian Gutierrez, who is best known for writing and directing movies like Women In Trouble, Elektra Luxx and Girl Walks Into A Bar, is handling the screenplay while Michael De Luca (Moneyball, Fright Night) is set to produce. »
Sebastian Gutierrez is that rare director who can make a sleek-looking film while getting actors to say the strangest things in the most sincere ways. His work on Women in Trouble and Elektra Luxx proved as much, elevating B-movies into the A+ range, and now his ensemble sensibilities return with a 1958 detective story flair in Hotel Noir. In the film, the detective (Rufus Sewell) hides away in a hotel waiting for killers to find him, and it looks like he has plenty to hold his attention. Malin Ackerman is dancing and taking showers; Carla Gugino is speaking easy and being smokey; and Mandy Moore is…seducing Danny DeVito. Naturally. Plus, genre legend Robert Forster gets a nice T-bone steak of a role to chew on. Not bad at all. Check out the trailer for yourself: Release dates for the film aren’t firm, but a recent Kickstarter campaign has ensured that it’ll be on more than »

Writer and Director Sebastian Gutierrez has a knack for convincing lots of talented actors to star in his horribly written and directed films like Elektra Luxx, Women in Trouble, and his latest disaster Girl Walks Into a Bar. While his longtime girlfriend Carla Gugino’s involvement is no mystery, somehow he convinced Alexis Bledel, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Zachary Quinto, Rosario Dawson, Danny DeVito, Josh Hartnett, Xander Berkeley, Gil Bellows, and Amber Valletta to star in a cluttered story of stilted dialogue and cutaways worthy of only the worst film school productions. I don’t know how he does it, but each and every time it’s an utter waste of talent, just not his own.
