Mark Millar interview: Kingsman, Fox's Marvel films

23 January 2015 2:49 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book writer Mark Millar talks to us about his work on Kingsman: The Secret Service, storytelling and more...

The latest big screen adaptation of Mark Millar's work, Kingsman: The Secret Service, arrives in UK cinemas this week. It follows the likes of Kick-AssKick-Ass 2 and Wanted to the screen, and Millar also advises Fox on its series of Marvel films. He spared us some time for a chat about his films, storytelling, auctioning names off for charity, and specifically about Kingsman itself.

Here's how it went...

To what extent would you say this is a political story?

Funny you should say that. We were chatting about this earlier, and my friends who are left-wing so it as a left-wing political story about a guy from nothing showing that he’s just as good as people who had everything, and he’s even being better than them by the end. »

5 January 2015 1:20 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Crimson Peak: The first official photo of Tom Hiddleston in Crimson Peak reveals him to be a fine-looking gothic gentleman. Guillermo del Toro's horror movie, due in theaters October 16, is keeping its plot secrets to itself for now, but we know that Hiddleston plays the new husband of author Mia Wasikowska, and that a frightfully old English manor is involved. Jessica Chastain also stars. [Empire via Collider]   Masters of the Universe: A new version of Masters of the Universe, inspired by the popular 1980s animated series, is moving forward.

Confirming that social media is fast becoming a news source, of sorts, in terms of the entertainment industry, Senior Vice President of Production at Columbia Pictures, DeVon Franklin, was asked via Twitter for an update on the progress of the long gestating Masters Of The Universe feature film project, on January 2nd 2015. In response, he tweeted a picture of the title page of the script, dated December 24th, with credit for the completed draft going to Jeff Wadlow (writer and director of Kick-Ass 2).

It was announced in April 2014 that Wadlow had been tapped to produce a re-write of the script – which had previously been worked on by Alex Litvak, Mik Finch, Richard Wenk and Terry Rossio. Though Wadlow’s directorial prowess has him highly sought after (with Marvel reportedly being among his suitors), a director for Masters Of The Universe »

Masters Of The Universe Script Completed by Jeff Wadlow

5 January 2015 7:25 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by rmendesjr

Back in April of last year it was reported that Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow would be writing a script for the new Masters of the Universe film set up at Columbia Pictures. That script has been completed, and Senior Vice President of Production at the studio, Devon Franklin, posted a copy of the script’s title page on Twitter, which you can see below.

The project has gone through several writers over the years. Before Wadlow came on board, G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu was attached to the project. Luckily for us, he’s not going to be around to ruin it. The film doesn’t have a director currently attached to it, but Wadlow is in contention with I Origins director Mike Cahill, who would be a very interesting choice. That guy »

Masters Of The Universe: new script rewrite ready

4 January 2015 11:40 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow has turned in the new draft of the Master Of The Universe movie reboot...

2015 might just be the year that the planned movie reboot of Masters Of The Universe finally happens. Certainly given the success of the G.I. Joe and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, to name but two, it seems as though obstacles are being removed to it getting a green light.

It was G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M Chu who was attached to the project for some time, but he's no longer on board. One person who is though is Jeff Wadlow. The Kick-Ass 2 director was reportedly doing a rewrite of the script for the film, and according to Columbia Pictures' DeVon Franklin - the studio's senior vice president of production, no less - a new draft was in place on Christmas Eve. He Tweeted a picture of said draft on his Twitter account, »

Jeff Wadlow Completes ‘Masters Of The Universe’ Script

4 January 2015 11:23 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kick-ass 2 director, Jeff Wadlow, has finally completed his pass at the script for Masters Of The Universe. Wadlow joined the project last April, and as the picture from Senior Vice President of Production at Columbia Pictures Devon Franklin shows, he took over from previous drafts by Alex Litvak & Mik Finch, Richard Wenk, and Shrek writer Terry Rossio. I remember back in the day when John Woo expressed interest, along with his idea for gun toting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Alas, both seem to have gone in different directions.

Masters Of The Universe will be based on a series of toys and cartoons from something called the 1980s. They followed the adventures of Prince Adam, a man with less disguise technique than Clark Kent, who could transform into the mighty He-Man. Other names considered were Bloke-Dude and Guy-Possessor of Penis. He-Man must fight the evil Skeletor and Evil-Lyn, the former »

4 January 2015 3:13 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The last couple of years have been filled with a variety of ups and downs for the new Masters of the Universe movie, but at the very least 2015 is off to a good start. It appears that a draft of the script has been completed, suggesting that the movie might actually gain some traction in the coming months. While we actually haven't heard about the Masters of the Universe script since Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow signed on to write it last April, this latest update comes directly from DeVon Franklin, the Senior Vice President of Production at Columbia Pictures. The executive kicked off the year by posting a caption-less image of the Masters of the Universe script on his personal Twitter account, and it seems to confirm that the He-Man movie is very much in active development at his studio: @danmillerNY @RoastGooble— DeVon Franklin »

Jeff Wadlow completes his Masters of the Universe script

2 January 2015 1:52 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) pulled out of Masters of the Universe back in October of 2013, it looked like the big screen He-Man reboot was going to be one of those projects forever consigned to development hell.

However, Columbia subsequently announced that Kick-Ass 2 helmer Jeff Wadlow would pick up the reins, and now Devon Franklin, senior VP of Development at the studio, has revealed via Twitter that Wadlow has completed a rewrite of the script, which as you can see from the cover below has already passed through the hands of Alex Litvak & Mik Finch, Richard Wenk and Terry Rossio

Wadlow is only attached to Masters of the Universe in a writing capacity but is hoping to direct, so perhaps if his script impresses he’ll get the job and the project will finally start moving forward…
