The Losers – Zoe Saldana and Jeffrey Dean Morgan get a bit saucy

Posted by LiveFor on February 9, 2010

As previously reported, The Losers is the adaptoin of the Vertigo Comic by Andy Diggle and Jock.

It tells the story of a covert-ops team for the CIA who are betrayed by their handler Max (Jason Patric) while on a search-and-destroy mission in Bolivia.

The team – comprising of Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Clay), Idris Elba (Roque), Oscar Jaenada (Cougar), Columbus Short (Pooch) and Chris Evans (Jensen), vow to get revenge and go on the hunt for the mysterious Max.

It isn’t long before they meet the beautiful Aisha (Zoe Saldana), an operative with her own agenda, who tells them she knows how to find the elusive Max.
As you can see in the pics from The Mail Online, Aisha and Clay get close in the film.

Check out the trailer.

Posted by LiveFor on February 1, 2010


The trailer debuted a couple of days ago and now director Sylvian White was chatting to The LA Times and the piece includes the photo above. The film stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba, Chris Evans, Columbus Short, Jason Patric, Zoe Saldana, Oscar Jaenada and Holt McCallany.

If it looks familiar it is because of the artwork by Jock for Andy Diggle’s comic.

The team–Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar–find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they’re joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda.

The photo of the team at the top fills me full of hope for this one as it is pretty much how the team looks in the comic.

Oscar Jaenada has joined The Losers

Posted by LiveFor on May 21, 2009

Some more casting news for the adaption of Andy Diggle and Jock’s brilliant comic, The Losers.

Blackfilm.com have the news Oscar Jaenada (The Limits of Control, Che: Part Two) has got the role of Cougar.

Directing the film is Sylvain White. He directed Stomp The Yard and is due to direct Frank Miller’s Ronin and Castlevania.

Losers centers around a Special Forces team, who are set up and betrayed by their enigmatic handler, Max, who soon discovers that you should never leave a bunch of black-ops commandos for dead. The Losers regroup for revenge, and to get their names off a pesky CIA death list. For issue after issue, they conducted covert operations against the CIA, and sought to uncover the plans and conspiracies of the powerful, secretive Max.

Previously I’ve mentioned the casting of Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, Supernatural) as the leader Clay, Idris Elba (Ultraviolet, Obsessed) is his second-in-command Roque, Chris Evans (Fantastic Four, Push) as Jensen, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek) is Aisha, and Columbus Short as Pooch.

Blackfilm also confirm the news that Jason Patric will be playing the role of the big bad Max.

It’s all coming together for this film and if it stays true to the comic it should have some amazing action scenes.

Armored – Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, and Laurence Fishburne have a plan to make some money

Posted by LiveFor on April 16, 2009

A crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.

Starring Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Amaury Nolasco (who is currently filming The Rum Diary with Johnny Depp in Puerto Rico), Fred Ward, Skeet Ulrich, Columbus Short (who is down to star in the adaption of The Losers) and Milo Ventimiglia it certainly has got some big name action stars in there.

Always good to see Fred Ward. I loved him in Tremors and Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous (Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins if you live in the USA).

Armored (keep wanting to type Armoured) is directed by Nimród Antal who, not only sharing a name with a mutant killing robot from the X-Men comics, also made Vacancy.
Collider had the poster and photos and Trailer Addict had the trailer. Watching it this looks like it will be of the old school variety and there’s nothing wrong with a bit of old school action now and again.
