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

Posted by LiveFor on February 9, 2010

– 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”

24 – Has it nuked the fridge

Posted by LiveFor on June 3, 2009

24 has been going for a good few seasons and some of the storylines have been a little over the top. However, Kiefer is always solid and the format still works.

The show jumping the shark, nuking the fridge etc is nothing to do with the storyline. It is to do with the following piece of casting.

Freddie Prinze Jr. is joining the cast of Fox’s 24 as CTU’s head of Field Ops. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll play David Cole, “a recently returned Marine who…wants to follow in Jack Bauer’s (Kiefer Sutherland) footsteps.”

That’s right. Scooby Doo’s Fred, The Wing Commander himself is joining 24.

Message ends.

Dark Mirror – strange things on the other side of the mirror

Posted by LiveFor on April 16, 2009

First there was Mirrors starring Kiefer Sutherland (which was a remake of an Asian horror film), then there was The Broken starring Lena Headey, now another alternate dimension with mirrors involved film is on it’s way to creep you out.

Dark Mirror is an indie film by Pablo Proenza and Quiet Earth found the new trailer that I have posted below.

It does seem to be going over a lot of similar ground that we have seen in a few other movies, but I must admit I do like the bit at the start if the trailer when the lead, Lisa Vidal, is talking about the other doorway in the mirror. There is also a blink and you’ll miss it appearance of Daeg Faerch, who played the young Michael Myers in Rob Zombie’s Halloween. It also stars David Chisum and Joshua Pelegrin.

A photographer moves her family into a strange old house, where she discovers an alternate reality reflected in the glass… A dark reality that is closing in on her.

Kiefer Sutherland talks about possibility of a 24 movie

Posted by LiveFor on March 22, 2009

Collider chatted to Keifer Sutherland about various things. They asked whether he would make a 24 film or animated series. Here is what he said:

I’ve never thought about an animated series. We thought that it would always be cruel and unusual punishment to ask the writers to write, in the course of ten months, the equivalent of twelve films and in their off time if you’ve got a great idea for a feature film that’s so special write that as well. So we’ve kind of collectively agreed that we would entertain the idea of a film when the series was finished. And if people still wanted to see something like that we would be really excited to do it because the format we would make the movie in – cause we have discussed it – would be a two hour representation of a twenty-four hour day. So we would lose the real time aspect which would be a huge freedom for the writers. But it’s something we would not even start to do until the series was finished.

8 Kilomètres, Dial Hard and Vingt-Quatre Heures are the originals. Someone call Eminem, Bruce Willis and Keifer Sutherland

Posted by LiveFor on March 19, 2009

Did you enjoy watching 8 Mile, Die Hard and 24? Did you love the originality of them all.

What if I was to say they were all based on forgotten classic films from the 1960’s and below is the proof.

You would no doubt say, “No Live for Films, they are not, you are being silly. They are in fact clever little adverts based on the 2 films and TV show you mentioned done in the style of 1960’s films. Don’t try and fool us again with your clever ruse.”

I would then say, “Oh! Look at the monkey.” I would then run off and jump into a waiting taxi.

You would be right though. However, they are nicely done spoofs, riffs, homages on the 3 classics. They are from http://www.smoothoriginals.com and are ads for Stella Artois 4%. In fact they are not the full advert, they are simply teasers for the 4 minute ads which are due out next week. Cheers to Jonathan for sending them my way. Let me know what you think of them.

2 poets face off in a battle of rhyme in ‘8 Kilomètres’

Inspector MeQlain plays a deadly game of Simon Says in ‘Dial Hard’

The clock is ticking for Jacques in ‘Vingt-Quatre Heures’

Monsters vs Aliens Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on November 4, 2008

Monsters vs. Aliens,” reinvents the classic ’50s monster movie into an irreverent modern day action comedy.

The cast of “Monsters vs. Aliens” includes: Oscar® winner Reese Witherspoon (”Walk the Line,” “Rendition”) as Susan Murphy, a.k.a. Ginormica; Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie (TV’s “House,” “Stuart Little”) as Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; Will Arnett (TV’s “Arrested Development,” “Blades of Glory”) as The Missing Link; Seth Rogen (”Knocked Up,” “Superbad”) as B.O.B.; Rainn Wilson (”Juno,” TV’s “The Office”) as Gallaxhar; Emmy winner Stephen Colbert (TV’s “The Colbert Report,” “Bewitched”) as The President of the United States; Golden Globe winner Kiefer Sutherland (TV’s “24,” “Phone Booth”) as General W.R. Monger; and Paul Rudd (”Knocked Up,” “Night at the Museum”) as Susan’s boyfriend, Derek.

“Monsters vs. Aliens” is directed by Rob Letterman (”Shark Tale”) and Conrad Vernon (”Shrek 2″), produced by Lisa Stewart (”I Think I Love My Wife”) and co-produced by Jill Hopper and Latifa Ouaou. The film marks the theatrical debut of DreamWorks Animation’s Ultimate 3-D, the studio’s proprietary production process of authoring its animated films in 3-D from start to finish.

When California girl Susan Murphy is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall and is instantly labeled a “monster” named Ginormica. The military jumps into action, and she is captured and held in a secret government compound. The world learns that the military has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years. This ragtag group consists of the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement time is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country.

As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger (on a desperate order from The President), the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction.

What do you think of that?

Mirrors – Opening Scene

Posted by LiveFor on August 11, 2008

This is the opening scene to Mirrors, the new one starring Kiefer Sutherland. Adapted from a Korean horror movie called Into the Mirror. This remake is directed by Alexandre Aja (Switchblade Romance, The Hills Have Eyes)

It is actually looking pretty good and a bit gory so be sure there are no younglings around when you watch this.

Good to see Jack Bauer back doing movies.
