Jeffrey Dean Morgan stares into Michael Bassett’s Unblinking Eye

Posted by LiveFor on February 12, 2010

Michael Bassett’s adaption of Solomon Kane is finally due out next week. News is now out on his next project. Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, The Losers, Supernatural) has signed on for the psychological thriller The Unblinking Eye.

THR have the news that Bassett wrote the script. It follows a homicide detective John Callisto (Morgan), now a retired recluse after being nearly murdered by a serial killer, who is tracked down by a relentless journalist. As the two confront each other, dark secrets from both their pasts come to light.

That synopsis puts me in mind of Sleuth (the 1972 film featuring Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier, remade with Caine and Jude Law a few years ago) which is no bad thing.

It is due to start shooting in May and has a budget of $10 million.

Solomon Kane – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on September 10, 2009

Here is a better quality trailer for Solomon Kane starring James Purefoy as the kick-ass Puritan.

Before you say anything, yes I know there is a slight similarity to Van Helsing with the look of Kane, but I really don’t think it will be anything like that piece of naffness.

Watching the trailer (which is currently in Russian) I really liked the grittiness of the fighting. It seems as if director Michael J Bassett has really tried to carry across the feel of Robert E Howard’s original books.

The film is having a premiere in Toronto, but I am not sure when it will go on general release.

Have a watch and let me know what you think of it.

Things are getting ever closer for Michael Bassett’s Solomon Kane, a movie based on the 16th Century Puritan character created by Robert E. Howard . Bloody-Disgusting has debuted thes photos showing James Purefoy as the titular warrior.

The trailer looked amazing and these photos just add to my excitement.

In addition to Purefoy, this also stars Jason Flemyng, Rachel Hurd-Wood, Pete Postlethwaite, and Max von Sydow and is looking very, very good.

Solomon Kane – Trailer from Comic Con

Posted by LiveFor on August 3, 2009

kane2The trailer for Solomon Kane (James Purefoy) that was shown at Comic Con 2009. Solomon Kane is a fictional character created by the pulp-era writer Robert E. Howard. A 17th century Puritan, Solomon Kane is a somber-looking man who wanders the world with no apparent goal other than to vanquish evil in all its forms. His adventures, published mostly in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, often take him from Europe to the jungles of Africa and back.

I posted some excellent concept art for this way back when and this bootleg trailer makes me realy excited to see the film. Can’t wait to see a HD version of the full trailer. It looks as if Michael Bassett has done an excellent job.
