The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is Being Rebooted

6 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When 20th Century Fox released "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" in 2002, the goal was to launch a new big-budget franchise. But after spending $78 million on the film, it only grossed $179 million worldwide with a disappointing $66 million earned in Us. While the movie was considered a failure (it was also Sean Connery's last film role), Fox has announced that it will reboot the project in hopes of getting it right this time. John Davis (Chronicle) is producing. A director has yet to be hired. The original film was based on a comic book series by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, and features such literature characters as Allan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Mina Harker of Dracula. »

The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Reboot Planned

7 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Released in 2003, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, based on writer Alan Moore and artist Kevin O’Neil’s comic book of the same name, is a bit of a mess, and is probably more famous for being Sean Connery’s last movie (live action at the very least. He did lend his voice to 2012’s animated Sir Billi), and the beginning of Moore’s incredibly frosty relationship with Hollywood (all of the movies based on his work, from Watchmen to V For Vendetta, he has refused to accept money for). But considering the current comic book and superhero trend at the moment, 20th Century Fox and Chronicle and Predators producer John Davis, according to Variety, are having another crack at the ambitious and incredibly rich literary melting pot, with an eye towards building a new franchise. Over the course of several mini series and one shots, the book has followed »

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen reboot in development at 20th Century Fox

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I’m not sure how Alan Moore will feel about this one (we can all make an educated guess) but this is one reboot that I definitely do want to see happen. According to The Tracking Board 20th Century Fox are keen to make a big screen adaptation reboot of one of Alan Moore’s best work to date, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Back in 2003 a feature film loosely based on the comic book series starring Sean Connery was considered a huge failure (even though it made a small profit) and was critically panned by movie and comic-book enthusiasts alike. In fact the movie got slated so badly that it’s the main reason cited why Connery retired from acting shortly after it’s release.

Directed by Stephen Norrington (Blade) and also starring Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), Stuart Townsend (Elementary) and Peta Wilson (La Femme Nikita), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen »

League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen Reboot in the Works at Fox

15 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Well this was inevitable. In the wake of Marvel’s Avengers series and just ahead of Warner Bros.Justice League “prequel” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 20th Century Fox is reviving its own “team of superheroes” property The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Based on the Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill graphic novel of the same name, the story finds Victorian-era literary characters such as The Invisible Man, Dorian Gray, Captain Nemo, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde teaming up to fight bad guys. Per Variety, Chronicle and Predators producer John Davis is onboard to produce this new adaptation through his Davis Entertainment banner. Fox first attempted a feature film adaptation of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in 2003, with an ornery Sean Connery leading a cast that included Shane West as Tom Sawyer, a character the studio added in order to make the property more appealing to younger viewers. »

Everything we know so far about the Fantastic Four reboot: Spoilers, trailer and latest rumours

25 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

20th Century Fox's new Fantastic Four is sneaking up on us with surprising stealth. Other than the odd controversy, news on the film from Chronicle director Josh Trank has been relatively light.

So what do we know about the movie, other than it surely has to improve on its Jessica Alba and Chris Evans-starring predecessors? Read on to find out:

Fantastic Four will arrive in UK cinemas on August 6 and in the Us on August 7.

We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family

In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.

We have a whole new lineup, with Whiplash's Miles Teller as stretchy super scientist Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic, House of Cards' Kate Mara and Chronicle »

Trank Denies "Fantastic Four" Reshoot Removal

24 May 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Josh Trank ("Chronicle") has denounced claims that he's been removed from the reshoots of the upcoming "Fantastic Four" Film.

The story started over at the usually reliable Superhero News which reportedly claimed that Matthew Vaughn was asked to step in and director the "Fantastic Four" reshoots this past April to ensure the movie fits inline with the studio's "X-Men" franchise.

Vaughn was rumored be present during the reshoots, but this was the first time anyone has suggested he took control. The Trank rumors were fuelled by media reports of severe enough issues on the "Fantastic Four" set that they contributed to his removal as director of the second "Star Wars Anthology" film in the works.

The report has also claimed that Fox has completely scrapped their 3D plans for "Fantastic Four" with the budget for that plan going on the reshoots.

Trank has since responded to the report with »

Michael B. Jordan responds to criticism of his casting as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four

22 May 2015 3:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back at the start of the year, a section of the internet exploded with the news that black actor Michael B. Jordan had been cast as white comic book character Johnny Storm in 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four. Jordan has spoken briefly on the backlash on several occasions [see here and here], but now with the film on the horizon, he’s penned a lengthy response over at EW:

You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero. But after taking on Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four—a character originally written with blond hair and blue eyes—I wanted to check the pulse out there. I didn’t want to be ignorant about what people were saying. Turns out this is what they were saying: “A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It »

Michael B. Jordan's Heartfelt Response To Those Opposed To His Fantastic Four Casting

"You’re not supposed to go on the Internet when you’re cast as a superhero. But after taking on Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four—a character originally written with blond hair and blue eyes—I wanted to check the pulse out there. I didn’t want to be ignorant about what people were saying. Turns out this is what they were saying: “A black guy? I don’t like it. They must be doing it because Obama’s president” and “It’s not true to the comic.” Or even, “They’ve destroyed it!” So begins Michael B. Jordan's letter (via EW) in response to the backlash his casting in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot received. His character, Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch, was a white guy in the comics so even though Jordan had proven himself a fine actor with roles in the likes of Fruitvale Station and Chronicle, »

The New 'American Ultra' Posters Join This Group of Far-Out Stoner Movies

14 May 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It's surprising with how topical and popular marijuana currently is (recreational use of it is now legal in multiple states!) that we don't see more stoner movies in theaters. That looks to be changing with the emergence of American Ultra, starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg as two stoners whose lives are uprooted when they learn the government wants to wipe them out.  Of note: The film was written by fan-favorite Max Landis (Chronicle). Here are the movie's first two posters, along with an image. And in case you didn't think they'd be leaning into the stoner thing too much, well...     American Ultra is due in theaters on August 21, and the presence of these images leads us to believe its first trailer isn't too far...

Eisenberg & Stewart on First Two Smokin' Posters for 'American Ultra'

14 May 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Wowza. I don't know how the MPAA let them get away with this, but awesome, let me say that. I'm guessing the lack of any cigarette/joint makes all the difference. Two new posters and a first look photo have debuted for American Ultra, the new film from a script by Max Landis (of Chronicle, The Death and Return of Superman) directed by Nima Nourizadeh. Actor Jesse Eisenberg plays a stoner named Mike who, along with Kristen Stewart as his girlfriend, it turns out is a sleeper agent, and the government is trying to eliminate him. They definitely both look like stoners, with Eisenberg donning a wig, and Stewart dying her hair for the part, the only thing that really is missing is a joint. Take a look at all the new images below. Your first look at American Ultra from MTV, showing Jesse Eisenberg as Mike + Kristen Stewart as »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Get High in First American Ultra Posters

14 May 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Our first look at Lionsgate’s action-comedy American Ultra has arrived, and the Adventureland reunion between stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg actually looks like it could function as a genuine sequel to Greg Mottola’s underrated coming-of-age drama. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the story finds a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend’s (Stewart) life disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out. The picture begins as a romance, with Eisenberg’s character aiming to propose to his longtime girlfriend, but it’s soon revealed that he’s actually a sleeper agent. While the movie definitely has an action bent, Nourizadeh explains to MTV that at heart it’s a love story: “You start with this kind of like sweet love story,” Nourizadeh said. “I don’t want to turn people off with that, »
