Batman 3 shooting next year? Gary Oldman thinks so

Posted by LiveFor on July 24, 2009

During the Book of Eli presentation at Comic-Con 2009, Gary Oldman was asked when we would be seeing a third Batman movie. He gave a surprising answer.

According to Oldman, a sequel to The Dark Knight is not only happening, but it begins shooting in 2010.

“The next batman is next year, so I think it is two years away. But you didn’t hear it from me.”

Surprising as Christopher Nolan has said he has not signed on for a thirs Batman film just yet and he is currently shooting the sci-fi of the mind film, Inception.

Those who where there said Oldman was not joking. Interesting news.

Expect his to be debunked or confirmed over the next few days.

The Book of Eli – Photos from the Hughes Bros’ Post-Apocalyptic Western

Posted by LiveFor on May 27, 2009

USA Today have these new photos from The Hughes Brothers‘ The Book of Eli.

It tells the story of a lone man (Denzel Washington) who fights his way across America in order to protect a mysterious sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind. The film is set in the future after the sun has exploded, leaving earth to rot.

Gary Oldman plays the villain of the piece.

Albert Hughes said “We had one scene where Denzel had to kill off one of his enemies. Right after he kills the guy, a little dust storm picks up and blows right over them. It was eerie. We’re going to have people thinking an effect was computer-generated, when really it was just from shooting out here.”

Washington, who shed 55 pounds for the role, recalls storms so rough that crews had to don goggles just to see what they were filming. “There’s a reason there’s nothing growing out here,” he says. “It’s land no one wants.”
This film is looking good, but part of me is worried that this could end up like some kind of Waterworld.

First look at Gary Oldman in The Book of Eli

Posted by LiveFor on March 13, 2009

Here is a photo showing Denzel Washington and our first glimpse of Gary Oldman in The Book of Eli thanks to Teaser Trailer. Doesn’t really look too much on the photo, but I am sure with lovely cinematography it will look lovely on the big screen. I am still wondering when Denzel’s character gets the samurai sword we see him holding in the teaser poster.

Tom Waits reads the Book of Eli

Posted by LiveFor on March 12, 2009

This from Anti and good news for all us Tom Waits fans.

Currently, Tom Waits is in the midst of filming The Book of Eli, directed by Albert and Allen Hughes (From Hell, Dead Presidents, Menace II Society, among others). Eli is a post-apocalyptic Western, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving mankind. The film stars Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman with Tom Waits in a small role as “Engineer.” This will mark Waits’ second teaming with Oldman as Waits’ played Renfeld to Oldman’s Count Dracula in the Francis Ford Coppola version of the classic vampire film.

In other film news, Waits stars as Mr. Nick (the devil) opposite Christopher Plummer in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which is also Heath Ledger’s last film. Due to Heath’s premature death, his unfinished roll was taken on by Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell. The fantastical morality tale set in the present day also features Lily Cole and Verne Troyner. The film looks to premiere at Cannes and open worldwide later this year.

What do you think about that casting news?
