The Green Hornet to go up against Colonel Hans Landa

Posted by LiveFor on September 14, 2009

christophe-waltzAh the comings and goings of Michel Gondry’s The Green Hornet. People are cast, people leave and it’s all a bit up in the air even though they have started filming (check out the photos).

Last we heard Nicolas Cage had to bow out from being the gangster villain of the piece due to other commitments. That left a gap in the cast of Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou, Edward James Olmos and Tom Wilkinson.

Step forward Christoph Waltz. He is the excellent actor who was absolutely brilliant in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds as Col. Hans Landa. He was calm, collected, witty, manic and intelligently insane. A superb performance in my mind and I hope he gets a Supporting Actor nod at the Oscars.

I think Waltz will give this production an absolute lift and if he is working his milk drinking strudel chomping mojo then we should be in for something simply splendid.

How do you feel about Waltz going up against the Hornet?

The Green Hornet starts filming and Adama joins the cast

Posted by LiveFor on September 3, 2009

hornetColumbia Pictures have announced the start of production on Michel Gondry’s The Green Hornet.

As previously reported it stars Seth Rogen as the Hornet with Jay Chou as his sidekick Kato. The studio also mentioned the fact that Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner) has joined the cast along with actors David Harbour (Revolutionary Road) and Tom Wilkinson (Valkyrie, Duplicity, Batman Begins). Nic Cage is also starring as a gangster and Cameron Diaz is the love interest.

With Gondry directing and this cast we should be expecting something super cool.

The Green Hornet is out on 17th December 2010.

Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series heading to DVD and Blu-Ray

Posted by LiveFor on April 29, 2009

Great news for Battlestar Galactica fans (although it is a little out of my price range). Not sure on the packaging for the complete series though. Surely they could have done something better.

Universal Home Video has announced DVD ($49.98) and Blu-ray ($69.98) releases of Battlestar Galactica: Season 4.5 for the 28th July. Each will include commentaries by Ronald D. Moore, David Eick, and Edward James Olmos, Ronald D. Moore’s Podcast Commentaries, David Eick’s Video Blogs, deleted scenes, and featurettes (“Evolution of a Cue”, “The Journey Ends: The Arrival”, “So Say We All”, “Manifesto Destiny”, “Battle-Style Galactica”, “Martyr To A Cause”, “The Sins of The Forgiven”, “Battlestar Revelations”). The Blu-ray release will also include additional U-Control and BD-Live functions.

Also available from the 28th July will be DVD ($279.98) and Blu-ray ($349.98) releases of Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series. The ambitious 20-disc Blu-ray™ Hi-Def set and a 25-disc standard DVD set contains every episode of television’s most original, thought-provoking series, together with extensive bonus materials delving deep into the richly imagined world of the hit SCI FI Channel original show.

Battlestar Galactica to be moviefied…the original BSG that is

Posted by LiveFor on February 20, 2009

IGN Movies has the newsthat Universal Pictures is planning to turn Battlestar Galactica into a feature film.

Now this isn’t going to be the excellent Sci-Fi Channel reboot with its Replicant style Cylons and cool looking Centurions. Nope the plan is to make a film based on the original 1970’s series. You know the one. Dirk Benedict as Apollo, the irritating kid, the man in the dog suit and the portly Centurions!

IGN state that “a Universal spokesperson refused to comment on rumored projects before ultimately denying it; we were later able to confirm our scoop independently. (This studio denial was reminiscent of Sony’s dismissive response to our scoop about Jaden Smith starring in a Karate Kid remake, which we broke a YEAR before the project was officially announced.)”

Now if this is true why on the 13 Colonies would they go back to the old school version when the Ronald D Moore version has been so popular and cool. True the new one is coming to a definite end soon so they cannot spin it out onto the big screen, but still why take a step back on this?

I have five words MAN..IN..A..DOG..SUIT! The defence rests.

Would you want to see an updated version on the big screen that doesn’t have Edward James Olmos as Adama?

Remember all this has happened before and will happen again!
