Battleship – Update on the aliens in Peter Berg’s boardgame adaption

Posted by LiveFor on March 6, 2010

Still trying to get my head round the adaption of Bill and Ted vs Death’s favourite game and the fact it has aliens in it, but it is sounding a bit better with every new piece of news. Last I heard Jeremey Renner (The Hurt Locker, S.W.A.T.) was in talks to be the lead.

IGN spoke to great comic book artist, Jock (The Losers). As well as doing concept art for the new Judge Dredd film he’s also busy working on the look of the aliens for Peter Berg’s film.

“I met Peter when he was attached to The Losers and have done bits and piece for him since then. I did some work for his Dune adaptation which has now gone on to Pierre Morel.” said Jock “When he moved onto Battleship, rather than having two human forces, one is an alien force, and they needed designing and concepts done. I’m currently doing costumes for the aliens and their head-gear. I’ve also been doing a lot of key-frames of environments and events.”

Peter Berg spoke about the film and the aliens a while back. Jock confirms some of the things mentioned then. “They are aliens called ‘Regents’ and there is a battle, hence it’s called Battleship, but they didn’t come here to have a battle.” He continues, “Pete’s got such a great sensibility, he wants stuff to be raw and real and aggressive and frightening and hard and tough. There are different characters in the alien race that will have different service to the film, but generally they are totally new. Not really harking back to anything, but more trying to give Pete what he wants and what he’s trying to achieve.”

Jock added, “Something struck me after working on this for a few months — they are going to make a new version of the game with the aliens and the alien ships. There’s a folder online and that’s for Hasbro, so some action figures of what I’ve designed would be kind of cool!”

Can’t wait to see some of the concept art for the film as I love Jock’s work. Anyone else getting a bit more excited about Battleship?

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.

The Losers – New photo looks very like the comic book

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.

Drokk! Judge Dredd’s creator, John Wagner, talks about the new film

Posted by LiveFor on January 29, 2010

John Wagner is the man who created Judge Dredd and he is still writing the character in 2000AD 30 years later.

As we all know, Stallone was Dredd in the film adaption from a while back. The first 10 minutes where okay and it went down hill from there.

Now, speaking to 2000AD Review, Joe Wagner comments on the new film that has been written by Alex Garland with concept art by comic book artist Jock (above). He also mentions what he thought of the Stallone version.

I have read the script (by Alex Garland) and seen Jock’s visuals. While I can’t go into detail about the content I can say that it’s high-octane, edge of the seat stuff, and gives a far truer representation of Dredd than the first movie. I hated that plot. It was Dredd pressed through the Hollywood cliché mill, a dynastic power struggle that had little connection with the character we know from the comic.

Confident? I will be once I hear they’ve started filming. There’s many a slip.

There you have hit. Still not much on what the story will entail, but if Dredd’s creator likes it then that can only be a good thing.

What would you want to see in a new Judge Dredd film? What is needed to make it classic Dredd?

Still no word on who will be Dredd in the new film, but you can vote on who you would like in the poll below.

UPDATE: Now the trailer is out for real and here it is:
Vodpod videos no longer available.


END OF UPDATE

This is the first look at some footage for the adaption of the Andy Diggle and Jock comic book, The Losers. It is one of those EW teaser of a teaser trailer thing they do.

Directed by Sylvian White the film adaptation stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan (last seen in the comic book world as The Comedian in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen), Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Columbus Short, Holt McCallany, Oscar Jaenada, Jason Patric, and Peter Macdissi.

An explosive tale of double cross and revenge, “The Losers” centers upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. 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. Working together, they must remain deep undercover while tracking the heavily-guarded Max, a ruthless man bent on embroiling the world in a new high-tech global war.

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.
