If I was on a merry-go-round that was rigged with a bomb and the only way I could save the lives of myself and all those precocious orphans who wanted to experience a little joy before returning to their Dickensian existence was to name my all-time favorite musician, I would wait until the digital counter on the bomb was down to two seconds and say, "Duh. Bob Dylan!" [...]

Ridley Scott Drafts ‘All You Need Is Kill’ Writer Dante Harper To Adapt ‘The Forever War’

Posted: 28 Nov 2012 05:00 PM PST

Ridley Scott

Ridley Scott returned to tentpole sci-fi filmmaking this summer with Prometheus and it turned out to be one of the most divisive genre films released in recent years. Nevertheless, it was a global blockbuster and was warmly embraced by critics and audiences looking for something more intellectually stimulating in their summer movie escapes. Months before Prometheus opened in theaters, Scott had also signed on to make another Blade Runner movie. Plus, he has the Cormac McCarthy original script The Counselor next up on his dance card. After all that is said and done, it looks like the Oscar-winning director will be returning to a pet project he has been pursuing for the past quarter-century.

Since the late 1980s, Scott has sought to make a feature film adaptation of The Forever War, a 1974 sci-fi war novel written by Joe Haldeman, a former Army combat engineer who had served in the Vietnam War and used those experiences as the inspiration for his book. The Forever War told the story of a soldier who goes off to fight in an intergalactic war for a few months and returns to Earth only to find that 700 years have passed and the world is much different than when he left it. In 2008, Scott finally secured the rights to the book and announced he would be making the movie for 20th Century Fox, but those plans were sidelined in favor of Robin Hood and eventually Prometheus [...]

Lenny Kravitz To Play Motown Singer Marvin Gaye In Upcoming Biopic

Posted: 28 Nov 2012 03:00 PM PST

Marvin Gaye and Lenny Kravitz

Rocker Lenny Kravitz has signed on to play Motown R&B singer Marvin Gaye in a biopic to be shot next year, reports Yahoo News. For Kravitz, who recently as of late began an acting career to go along with his successful rock and roll one with appearances in films like The Hunger Games, it marks his first leading role. Kravitz's publicist reportedly confirmed the news on Tuesday.

The untitled film is to be directed by Julien Temple, who his best known for helming pictures (the Sex Pistols' The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle) and music videos (Duran Duran, Judas Priest, Sade, The Kinks, David Bowie) during the early 1980s. Not much is known on the proposed film, except the fact that it's mainly going to focus on Gaye's life and era during the 1980s when he was battling inner demons and stinging addictions and trying to walk the tightrope with that and his career, which was in need of a comeback [...]

Judge Dredd was created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra back in 1977 for 2000 AD, the premiere British sci-fi and fantasy comic anthology magazine. Dredd has continued to be published by 2000 AD on a weekly basis since the character first appeared. It has been re-collected and distributed by such companies as Eagle Comics and Fleetway/Quality Comics. It was also a part of DC Comics' lineup at one point in time. Now Judge Dredd is being published by an American company, IDW Publishing, as well as the continued stories in 2000 AD. IDW will go with the continuity already set by 2000 AD instead of trying to create their own. This is evident in the first issue of this newly launched series [...]

‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ Writer & Director Set To Take On ‘Flight Of The Navigator’ Remake

Posted: 28 Nov 2012 12:37 PM PST

Flight of the Navigator Image

It was way back in 2009 when we first heard that a remake of the 1986 family-friendly sci-fi flick Flight of the Navigator was being developed at Walt Disney.

At that point, Wild Hogs writer Brad Copeland was working on the screenplay, but if the three-and-a-half-years since have indicated anything, it's that that attempt did not go so well.

Now comes word that Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly will team up to rewrite the Flight of the Navigator remake, with Trevorrow possibly directing as well. [...]

Matthew Vaughn Might Just Be Directing ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ After All

Posted: 28 Nov 2012 10:00 AM PST

Matthew Vaughn

Since the news broke a month ago that Disney had purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion and was developing Star Wars: Episode VII for a 2015 release, British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn has been, despite constant denials, one of the frontrunners for the highly-coveted directing gig. At the recent London premiere of Seven Psychopaths actor Jason Flemyng, a close friend and collaborator of Vaughn's since the director was producing Guy Ritchie's quotable gangster pictures, let something very interesting slip during an interview with DIY TV, according to their Twitter feed:

We chatted to the lovely Jason Flemyng who pretty much let slip that Matthew Vaughn will be on Star Wars IV duties oops! #Jameson7Psychos

Okay, they said "Star Wars IV". That could be a modest little joke on Flemyng's part or maybe the interviewer misinterpreted something her said. Obviously a remake of A New Hope is not even on any sane person's mind and never will be. In any case, DIY TV later took to their Twitter to correct their previous snafu [...]

Watch Now: What ‘Game Of Thrones’ Would Look Like As An Episode Of ‘Seinfeld’

Game of Thrones Seinfeld Image

Have you ever wondered what the fantasy TV series Game of Thrones would look like if it were presented in the same way as the greatest sitcom of all time, Seinfeld? Neither have I! Still, someone decided they wanted to know what such a thing would look like and made it happen.

The video takes a couple of scenes from season one of the hit HBO series, and adds a touch of Seinfeld's familiar music and a laugh track to give it that sitcom vibe. The most epic of all sitcoms.

You can see for yourself what Game of Thrones might look like as an episode of Seinfeld by continuing on below. [...]

$5 MP3 Album Deal: The Stooges ‘Raw Power’

Posted: 28 Nov 2012 07:20 AM PST

Raw Power

Raw Power by The Stooges, one of the prototype records for punk music, with its snarling and frighteningly rough aural attitudes, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.

The Stooges had already released two albums prior to 1973's Raw Power, (The Stooges and Funhouse), each also dazzlingly original and sonically foreboding and ominous, lean and tough, like a bottle slash across the face, elements which became fully realized by the time Raw Power was released. Produced originally by David Bowie and led by the pint-sized man full of moxie Iggy Pop and with the sonic rumblings and grumblings of guitarist James Williamson and the rhythm section of former guitar player Ron Asheton moved over to bass and his brother Scotty still playing the drums as he always had, Raw Power finds the quartet taking Thor-style hammers in a musical sense to glass and then picking up the shards and handing them over to Iggy who proceeds to self-mutilate himself by way of his full admission and vocal nakedness on the record. He offers no apologies and takes no prisoners; he stands alone on his fucked up summit and that's just the way he likes it [...]
