Spoiler TV reports that several roles are out to cast for reshoots on Platinum Dunes’ remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. All the scenes seem to be for a diner scene where the lead character Nancy works and only consist of a few lines at most.

Jonah Hex is getting another two weeks of reshoots according to Collider. They are currently casting for the new scenes that seem to deal with Jonah’s past.

Len Wiseman takes on Shrapnel

Posted by LiveFor on July 23, 2009

Len Wiseman has signed to develop and direct a film adaptation of the graphic novel Shrapnel for Radical Pictures.

Wiseman said was browsing comic-book stores with his 10-year-old daughter, Lily, when he happened upon the comic the day it hit shelves. He quickly had his agent at ICM scout the rights.

The graphic novel, which Radical Publishing teased at last year’s Comic-Con, describes a sci-fi future where humans have colonized the solar system and formed a Solar Alliance to govern the planets. The story focuses on Venus, the last rebellious holdout, and a self-exiled former Marine who teaches the colonists how to fight back.

“I am really drawn to the reluctant-hero story,” said Wiseman, who noted that the last hero he directed — John McClane in “Live Free or Die Hard” — fit that archetypal mold.

Being developed as a live-action pic, a 3D approach is considered possible. A video game is planned with Zombie Studios.

Wiseman is attached to direct “Motorcade” at DreamWorks from a Billy Ray screenplay and also will helm DreamWorks’ adaptation of the comic book “Atlantis Rising,” penned by Joby Harold, for a summer 2011 release.

Wiseman also plans to direct the video game adaptation “Gears of War” for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. and is producing the original sci-fi action thriller “Nonstop” for DreamWorks.

Thunder…Thunder…Thundercats Hooooo! Charles Wen is down to do the concept art

Posted by LiveFor on December 10, 2008

Comic Book Movie that Charlie Wen, an illustrator and concept artist for God of War I and II (the games) and Gatchaman the movie would be doing the concept work for the new Thundercats movie – I’ve included some of his concept art from God of War and it looks stupendous. If he can bring his A-game to the Thundercats film then it may get past the major cheese factor from the original cartoon. Warners took the unusual move of hiring a video game designer to direct. Jerry O’Flagherty was the art director made famous by his work on the Gears of War game. By all accounts so far this movie is receiving a solid design treatment on updating the look of the ThunderCats while paying homage to the original series.

Gears of War – Real Armour and Guns for sale (well copies from the game)

Posted by LiveFor on December 2, 2008

Nightmare Armour Studios have put together these rather good costumes and weapons from the Gears of War game.
If you want to play dress up as your favourite Locust basher then head on over here to pick up a gun. It will cost you about $950 dollars.
It all looks pretty cool, but the main guy in the photos looks a little bit…you know. Not quite right in the head…a little too much into it.
What do you think of them? If you have the money would you buy one?

Gears of War Movie gets a step closer

Posted by LiveFor on July 29, 2008

Thanks to Matt for this one.

Legendary Pictures, responsible for Batman Begins and co-financing The Dark Knight, has agreed to put up half the money for the upcoming Gears of War film.

The other half is already being spotted by New Line Cinema, according to Variety, which began the movie adaptation early last year.
Those attached to the project so far are Die Hard 4.0 director Len Wiseman and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift writer Chris Morgan, who will be redrafting the original script by Stuart Beattie (of Collateral and Pirates of the Caribbean fame).
The cast is yet to be revealed, if there indeed is one yet, and the Gears of War film is expected in summer 2010.
Epic, developer of the Gears of War game, has appointed designer Cliff Bleszinski as creative go-between to ensure the film remains as faithful as possible to the original IP. Tom met the man formerly known as “Cliffy B” at E3 recently, and said he was very nice.
Legendary Pictures was also responsible for action film 300 and is behind the helm on upcoming comic-book adaptation Watchmen.
