Dredd 2: 2000Ad chief plays down sequel talk

13 February 2017 10:13 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 14, 2017

Dredd 2 looks no closer after all, with no sign of Karl Urban heading back to Mega City One...

There were slight murmurings of a fresh Dredd film last week, when the executive producer of the movie, Adi Shankar, gave an interview to Collider. In it, he said that “if anyone is still wondering, there’s no update on a Dredd sequel, but I’m gonna make it happen at some point. It may not be live-action, but it’s going to happen at some point. There will be more Judge Dredd at some point”.

Confident words, right? But sadly, they’re words that have been very politely taken down by Jason Kingsley. Kingsley is the man who co-owns Judge Dredd (being the joint chief of Rebellion, that owns 2000Ad), and he also served as »

Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey seems keen on playing Catwoman

11 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago The Magnificent Seven and The Girl on the Train’s Haley Bennett sparked speculation that she could be in line to join Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn as Catwoman in Gotham City Sirens with some posts on social media, and now Game of Thrones star Lena Headey has seemingly expressed her interest in swapping Westeros for the DC Extended Universe with a post on Twitter…

Why the fuck am I not https://t.co/h18ntWykyr

— lena headey (@IAMLenaHeadey) February 9, 2017

Headey, who will return as Queen Cersei in Game of Thrones season seven this summer, does has previous comic book movie experience with her roles in 300 and Dredd, and while she’s probably a little older than most would expect for Selina Kyle, it would make sense seeing as the Dceu has already opted for an older Batman in Ben Affleck.

‘Castlevania’ TV Series in Development at Netflix

10 February 2017 9:23 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This week, Netflix made of slew of announcements regarding their new and returning shows. Among the original series that are on its 2017 slate is a miniseries based on the Konami video game “Castlevania.”

The streaming service didn’t reveal any specific details, but according to Polygon and Imbd, Warren Ellis, known for writing “Iron Man 3” and “Red,” wrote the first season.

Producing the series is “Dredd” producer Adi Shankar, who wrote on Facebook, “I’m producing a super violent ‘Castlevania’ miniseries with my homies Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde. It’s going to be dark, satirical, and after a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.”

Additionally, animator Michael Hirsh, whose studio Wow Unlimited Media is producing the series with Netflix, told the Globe and Mail that “Castlevania” is targeted towards a younger audience and his studio hopes to create “platforms that focus on youth. »

Game Of Thrones Star Lena Headey Is Seemingly Interested In Playing Catwoman

10 February 2017 6:53 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Gotham City Sirens is expected to revolve around Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman, but as of right now, we have no idea who's playing the latter two characters. Megan Fox has been rumoured for Ivy, but we've heard nothing concrete on who's being eyed for Selina Kyle. However, a number of actresses have put their names forward with the latest being Game of Thrones star Lena Headey. With the DC Films Universe's Batman older than the rest of the world's heroes, it makes sense that Catwoman would also not be a twenty-something. That makes Headey perfect for the role, while she also looks perfect for the part and is without a doubt more than talented enough to deliver a memorable take on the character. She also has comic book movie experience with 300 and Dredd. Do you think Headey would be a good choice for Catwoman? Let us know in the comments section! »

Why So Serious?

Since the announcement that Ben Affleck was no longer directing The Batman, there have been some rumours about his continued involvement in the franchise, as well as word that Chris Terrio (Argo) has re-written his script. According to a new report from Forbes, Affleck’s script saw a cameo from Jared Leto’s Joker last seen in Suicide Squad as well as a list of other Batman villains. The report also says that Affleck’s script – which he’s been working on for some time – might be scrapped entirely. Read more here.

Power Rangers: R-rated animated series in development

10 February 2017 12:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Adi Shankar (of the gritty Power/Rangers short) is working on a "really f***ing dark" Power Rangers animated show...

Since the internet erupted with praise concerning Adi Shankar's Power/Rangers short, rumours have persisted that the producer will eventually enter Saban's mighty morphin' fold officially. 

See related  Star Wars Episode VIII: Rian Johnson on the film's story Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: how close were we to Josh Trank's Boba Fett film?

Speaking to Polygon, Shankar has now revealed exactly how he wants to make that happen. He's working on scripts for an R-rated animated "retelling of the first three seasons" of Power Rangers, which will, in his words, be "really fucking dark."

Reiterating the point, Shankar promised that his vision is "Darker than any other Power Rangers series."

However, don't get your hopes up just yet, as Shankar still »

Game Of Thrones Star Lena Headey Wants To Play Catwoman In Gotham City Sirens

9 February 2017 4:59 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Game of Thrones coming to an end soon, the cast is going to have a lot of free time on their hands, and most of them will probably start looking to increase their presence on the big screen. We’ve already seen many of them land sizeable roles in high profile films, but once HBO’s hit series is off the air, they’ll have a lot more openings in their schedules.

Lena Headey is one actress who’s certainly going to be flushed with offers once she finishes up on Game of Thrones, and while she’s already made several notable appearances in theaters, you can bet that she’ll be showing up a lot more once her television commitments come to an end. In fact, fans have been hoping for some time now that she’d join a superhero franchise, and it seems that’s not lost on the actress. »

Netflix’s “Dark, Satirical” Castlevania Series Likened To Game Of Thrones

9 February 2017 10:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Barely 24 hours have passed since Netflix quietly confirmed development on a Castlevania animated series and already, ardent fans of the video game classic are reeling with excitement.

Pitched as a “dark, satirical” adventure comprised of four 30-minute episodes, Netflix’s original series follows the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan who wages war against the infamous Vlad Dracula Tepe. Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse has been earmarked for creative inspiration, while we understand Frederator Studios (Adventure Time) will handle animation. Remaining behind the scenes for the time being, author Warren Ellis (Moon Knight) is the brains behind the screenplay for Castlevania‘s inaugural season – producer Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey) claims Ellis has already drafted up plans for season 2 – with Kevin Kolde and Fred Seibert lending producing support.

To add more context to Netflix’s recent announcement, Adi Shankar took to Facebook yesterday evening, where the producer compared »

Producer Hints Dredd 2 Could Go Down The Route Of Animation

9 February 2017 9:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dredd 2 as an animated feature? It’s certainly not outside the realm of possibility, according to Adi Shankar.

Collider caught up with the prolific producer to discuss Netflix’s planned Castlevania series, and it was here that Shankar addressed the status of the long-rumored sequel. Unsurprisingly, it’s still very much a dormant property, and given Dredd 2 has spent almost five years languishing on the brink of development, news that Karl Urban’s judge, jury, and executioner is still stranded on the sidelines is more predictable than anything else. Even still, there’s one exciting morsel to be mined from Adi Shankar’s latest status report, and it involves a different approach to the live-action cult actioner that lit up theaters back in 2012.

Per Collider:

If anyone is still wondering, there’s no update on a Dredd sequel, but I’m gonna make it happen at some point. It may not be live-action, »

Animated Castlevania TV Series Officially Announced For Netflix At Some Point This Year

9 February 2017 3:48 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last night, Netflix sent out a press release announcing their programming slate for the year, and a show based on the popular Castlevania video game series was mentioned without any fanfare and no details whatsoever. It was assumed that this must be the animated series we had heard was in the works from Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey, that "gritty" Power Ranger short), and sure enough, the man himself officially confirmed it soon after via the Facebook post below: Shankar has previously teased a "dark, satirical" adaptation that would "flip the vampire sub-genre on its head," and now he's promising the "western world's first good video game adaptation." That remains to be seen of course, but with talent like Warren Ellis and Adventure Time's Kevin Kolde involved, it should be well worth a look at the very least. Tell us, are youy looking forward to seeing The Belmont family slay bloodsuckers on Netflix, »

Castlevania TV series coming to Netflix in 2017

9 February 2017 2:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has just quietly announced an animated Castlevania TV series set to premiere in 2017. Following an event in New York City, intended to announce all of the original content for the coming year, this was found in an official press-release: “Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017”.

No other details are known at this time, but Frederator Networks (Adventure Time), as well as producer Adi Shankar (responsible for that gritty Power/Rangers short and 2012’s Dredd) have been working on a TV version of an established video game franchise. “We have a project right now that we’re doing that needs to go unnamed, based on one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years, that we’ve had in our shop for 12 years without being able to get it started,” Shankar said. “But there were great characters and a great story, and eventually we got it going. »

Dredd Executive Producer Adi Shankar’s Castlevania Series Heading To Netflix This Year!

8 February 2017 4:17 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Heads up, video game fans. It turns out we may have an unexpected dark horse hit us sooner than we expected, as Netflix has recently (and quietly) announced that they will be releasing a series based on the hit video game series, Castlevania.

The announcement came via a Netflix press release listing a whole host of shows, most of which were extra seasons of continuing shows (via io9). Nestled within the ink was the following:

"Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017"

If you’ll recall, some time ago producer Adi Shankar — who executive produced the crazy cool Dredd remake in 2012, and produced that kickass Power/Rangers short that hit the net bang back in 2015 — announced that he was developing the series with Frederator's founder Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde.

Naturally, one would assume that this Castlevania project would be the one referenced in this Netflix press release, and we »

Netflix Picks Up ‘Castlevania’ Adaptation From Frederator Studios, Adi Shankar

8 February 2017 2:18 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The man behind several gritty adaptations of 80s and 90s cultural touchstones now has one of that era’s top video game franchises in his sights. Adi Shankar, known for his work within the Dredd universe and for his 2014 Power Rangers fan film, will work with Fred Seibert’s Frederator Studios to bring an animated version of Castlevania to Netflix.

Castlevania, which has spanned more than 40 titles since releasing its first installment in 1986, follows an unyielding war that pits Dracula and his monstrous minions against the intrepid vampire hunters of the Belmont family. Castlevania games are typically action-packed, bloody, and gothic, qualities that mesh well with the style Shankar has displayed in his previous work (and, to an extent, in his fashion sense). The Netflix series will be set in an alternate version of the 1980s, which will allow Shankar to flex his nostalgia muscles as well. Even the show’s voice cast, »

The 50 Best Action Movies of the 21st Century Thus Far

7 February 2017 10:18 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since the dawn of the 21st century, action cinema has undergone a bigger change than perhaps any other genre. As the tools with which filmmakers craft their works have continually advanced, a sort of renaissance has begun wherein action films stepped firmly into their own. Often put in the same category as horror — not taken seriously as a form of artistic expression outside of its core fanbase — action has had to boldly announce itself as a viable medium through which big set pieces, but also big ideas, can be presented and explored.

With the highly anticipated John Wick: Chapter 2 arriving in theaters this Friday, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s action films that have most excelled. To pick our top 50, we’ve reached out to all corners of the globe, choosing an array of films ranging from grand to gritty, brutal to beautiful. The result »

First Trailer for UK Thriller 'City of Tiny Lights' Featuring Riz Ahmed

19 January 2017 12:37 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"People call me a snoop. They call me a lot worse. Broken marriages, missing kids. Nothing major, just the sacred and profane." An official UK trailer has arrived online for an indie film titled City of Tiny Lights, a "Scorsese-like" crime thriller about a private eye in London. Riz Ahmed (seen in Rogue One and Jason Bourne) plays Tommy Akhtar, who takes on a seemingly straight-forward missing person's case only to get pulled deeper into the underbelly of modern London. The full cast includes Billie Piper, Cush Jumbo, Hannah Rae, Roshan Seth, and James Floyd. This is from the same director of Dredd, a movie which I was very fond of. The film played at the Toronto and London Film Festivals last year, and it looks pretty damn good. Plus, Riz Ahmed is awesome and it's great to see him in a strong lead role. Take a look below.

‘City of Tiny Lights’ Trailer: Riz Ahmed Searches For Missing Girl in Pete Travis’ Modern Noir

19 January 2017 12:19 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Riz Ahmed first made waves in Michael Winterbottom’s “The Road to Guantanamo,” but his Hollywood claim to fame was in last year’s HBO crime drama “The Night Of,” which earned him a Golden Globe and SAG nomination.

Now, after starring in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Ahmed is returning to theaters in “City of Tiny Lights,” directed by “Dredd” helmer Pete Travis. Set in West London, the story is co-written by Patrick Neate and is based on his novel of the same name. Described as a “unique portrait of contemporary London as a teeming multicultural metropolis where nothing is as it seems,” it follows the actor as Tommy Akhtar, a London detective who goes searching for a missing girl after a high-class prostitute seeks his help.

The modern noir also co-stars “Penny Dreadful” actress Billie Piper as Shelley, Tommy’s long-lost love, as well as Cush Jumbo and Roshan Seth. »
