Posted by LiveFor on April 26, 2010

I have a lot in common with Robert Downey Jr. We both have beards….we both, er, we both have beards…did I mention the beard?

Well Downey Jr isn’t quite as cool as me. Take that Downey Jr.

The Random – Ghostbusters 3, Daredevil reboot, 24 film, Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, Terminator rights sold, Hanna, 127 Hours, Jane Eyre, The Fields, Thomas Crown Affair 2

– Bill Murray has sort of confirmed the rumour started by Sigourney Weaver a while back, “I’ll come back in Ghostbusters III only if I get to be a ghost,” said Murray in a new interview “I said to them, ‘I’ll do it if you kill me off in the first reel.’ So now they are going to have me as a ghost in the film.” I just think he is taking the piss.

– Marvel’s Daredevil will get another chance on the big screen as David Scarpa, the man who wrote the recent remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still is writing a new DD script….doesn’t fill me with much hope that the character will get the treatment he deserves. The main reason for the reboot is that Fox’s rights to the character would revert back to Marvel if they didn’t make it.Will Jason Statham be Matt Murdock?

– Jack Bauer may be heading to the big screen for a 24 film. Still early days, but Kiefer Sutherland is up for it and Billy Ray (Shattered Glass, Breach) has pitched the studios about it. Would be set in Europe, but I have to say what’s the point of taking a series that is set over a day and condensing it into a 2 hour action film?

– Steven Soderbergh has another film in the works called Contagion. According to The Playlist, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law have all started negotiations to star in the film, which is written by The Informant! screenwriter Scott Z Burns. It’ll follow multiple plotlines across four continents as a virus begins to spread, and terrifying events follow.

– Sony Pictures and Lionsgate bid on the rights for the Terminator franchise. However, according to Deadline, Halcyon Holding Corp accepted the $29.5 million bid from the debtholder which pushed it into bankruptcy, Santa Barbara-based hedge fund Pacificor. (This is the same Pacificor whom Halcyon accused in a lawsuit of extortion, bribery, and fraud and demanded $30M in damages.)

– Cate Blanchett will join Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana in Hanna. The Joe Wright-directed Focus Features drama that casts Ronan as a 14-year old assassin.

– Amber Tamblyn will play the female lead opposite James Franco in 127 Hours. The Danny Boyle film about Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who cut off his arm with a dull knife to save his life after being unable to free the limb from under a boulder. Tamblyn will play his girlfriend, with their relationship played out in flashbacks that keep him going.

– Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) has landed the title role of Jane Eyre, the Cary Fukunaga (sin Nombre) directed adaptation of the Charlotte Bronte novel.

– Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans) has signed on to star in Ami Canaan Mann’s very dark thriller The Fields reports Production Weekly. Based on a true story, Worthington would play a homicide detective from Texas investigating a strong of unsolved murders amidst the oil refineries in the state’s south-east with the help of a peer from New York.

– On the progress of the Thomas Crown Affair sequel, actor Pierce Brosnan said this week that “We’ve got the fourth script in and this is the closest we’ve gotten in structure to making sense. It’s very very hard. Now we have the character, it’s not really fleshed out, so we have to work on him, Mr. Crown, and her, Miss Moore, another affair, more art, but it has to be an unexpected surprise”

Repo Men – New posters for the Jude Law sci-fi film

Posted by LiveFor on January 23, 2010

In the futuristic action-thriller Repo Men, humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you dont pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its propertywith no concern for your comfort or survival.
Jude Law plays Remy, one of the best organ repo men in the business. When he suffers a cardiac failure on the job, he awakens to find himself fitted with the companys top-of-the-line heart-replacementas well as a hefty debt. But a side effect of the procedure is that his hearts no longer in the job. When he cant make the payments, The Union sends its toughest enforcer, Remys former partner Jake (Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker), to track him down.
Now that the hunter has become the hunted, Remy joins Beth (Alice Braga), another debtor who teaches him how to vanish from the system. And as he and Jake embark on a chase across a landscape populated by maniacal friends and foes, one man will become a reluctant champion for thousands on the run.

Sherlock Holmes will be on DVD and Blu-Ray sooner than you think

Posted by LiveFor on January 16, 2010

It has only been out at the cinema for a few weeks, but it looks as if the Guy Ritchie directed Shelock Holmes will be on your TV screen shortly.

JoBlo have the news that the film will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 31st March.

That is an awfully fast turnaround for a film, but it has made $300 million so far worldwide.

I thought Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law were excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed the film, so it will be good to have it in my hands so soon. However, it is very surprising that it is so quick. Mind you it could be to make as much money in sales before Avatar hits the shelves (although I’m not sure I would get Avatar on Blu-Ray or DVD due to the fact it won’t be 3D). Plus they are getting the sequel shot as soon as they can.

What do you think about Holmes being released for the home market so soon?

Sherlock Holmes 2 may start filming this June

Posted by LiveFor on January 13, 2010

News was out yesterday that Robert Downey Jr. had dropped out of Cowboys & Aliens. This was because of scheduling issues and so the possibility of a Sherlock Holmes sequel was raised – the first one, which I thought was excellent and one of the best versions of Holmes on the big screen, had a perfect set up for a sequel.

Today EW.com have heard that a sequel is being fast-tracked based on the success of the first film. (Sherlock’s worldwide gross is fast approaching $300 million.) Michael Robert Johnson, Anthony Peckham and Simon Kinberg wrote the first film butWarner Bros. commissioned a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney back in September and is now sorting out the cast for a June start date, exactly the time when Cowboys & Aliens is set to begin principal photography.

Great news as I can’t wait to see some more of Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law as Holmes and Watson. No word on whether Guy Ritchie will be back to direct, but I imagine he will be after the success of the first.

What do you want to see in the sequel?

Sherlock Holmes, 2009 – Movie Review

Posted by LiveFor on December 29, 2009

Director: Guy Ritchie
Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Mark Strong, Rachel McAdams

This review by Pamela Fruendt. Warning – Spoilers ahead

SHERLOCK HOLMES was supposed to be an outstanding film. Good fun? Yes. Great film? Not even close.

Robert Downy Jr. gives an engaging perfomance as London’s master sleuth while Jude Law is the perfect foil as Dr. Watson. Their friendship – the good, the bad and the ugly – is quite enjoyable as is the story of the women they love. Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler does her part justice, but I get the feeling most of her lines never made it to the final cut. That’s a shame because she is magical. Kelly Reilly as Watson’s love, Mary Morstan, plays her role with just the right amount of feeling towards Watson and watchful restraint towards Holmes.

Director Guy Ritche’s fever-pitched fight sequences are well-represented. Good guys. Bad guys. Explosions abound. People dangle and slide and nearly die multiple ways. Moriarty is introduced so you know someone is thinking sequel. And the dog, that wonderful dog…I want what he’s having.

So where does SHERLOCK HOLMES fail? As much as I enjoyed all that male bonding between Holmes and Watson, it just wasn’t enough to carry the film. We need a substantial plot for that to happen and somehow Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong) seen as a brutal serial killer running loose in London doesn’t quite do it for me. Oh, and don’t forget the magic potion that allows the killer to feign death. Attemping to poison members of Parliment was an interesting twist but, allowing for Sherlock and Watson’s friendship, I kept thinking I’ve seen this so many times before.

Should you see SHERLOCK HOLMES? If you want to have a good time watching the boys play, go for it. Just remember when Lord Blackwood rises from the grave on his way to Parliment…it’s time to refill your drinks and get more popcorn. By the time you get back to your seats the good stuff should be starting again. Besides, the end credits are amazing. I just wish the producers had done more with their $80 million…like giving the public a story worthy of our intelligence, not to mention the actors salaries.

Warner Bros.
run time: 128 min.
rating: PG-13

my rating: 5/10
