Holy Crap! Machete is going up against the Predators

Posted by LiveFor on September 27, 2009

The Punch Drunk Critics managed to speak to the always awesome Danny Trejo.

He updated them on Machete, Sin City 2, and even better the Robert Rodriguez’s produced Predators.

How cool is that?

Now if they could get a few more of the people Rodriguez has worked with in the past we could get an amazing Predator reboot – imagine Johnny Depp in it.

Robert Rodriguez is Rebooting Predator

Posted by LiveFor on April 24, 2009

In a recent news conference at Troublemaker Studios, several Texas state politicians were in attendance to sign HB 873, the long-awaited reform of the Texas film incentive program. All well and good, but IESB had this cool piece of news.

Rodriguez talked to the audience of press members and revealed his upcoming film slate.

“I’m going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons.”

There is lots of news in that one statement. Machete is a full film from the trailer that featured in Grind House, Sin City 2 will be cool and I just don’t know about The Jetsons.

The big news to me is the reboot of Predator. I love the first two films and the whole concept of the Predator is just great. I even liked the Mr Wolf style Predator in the recent AvP2 so to see more of the dreadlocked hunter will be fantastic.

However, I am a little concerned about Rodriguez directing it. Don’t get me wrong I loved Sin City, Desperado etc, but he just seems to have become obsessed with the whole green screen thing. Hopefully, he’ll lay off that a little for the new Predator as he can do some brilliant action scenes.

What are your views on Rodriguez directing the new Predator film? Where should it be set? What do you want to see in it?

The Goon – Eric Powell talks about why it had to be animated

Posted by LiveFor on April 10, 2009

“I always felt that the material would work better animated, just because of the bizarre nature of the characters and the atmosphere of the stories,” Powell told MTV News. “But American audiences don’t always embrace animation when it’s not a bunch of cute animals singing and dancing — so I was a little hesitant about it.”

“I thought maybe we should pursue a live action film,” continued Powell. “But then I saw the work of ‘Blur’ and spoke with [producer David] Fincher and learned about the way they want to do it the way they want to treat it, and I was sold.”

Still, when you look at the overall numbers for top-grossing comic book adaptations, see 2007’s “TMNT” standing as the top dog among CGI films, and note that its $54.1M just barely cracked the Top 50 superhero flicks, it’s hard to justify animation. Heck, all you’d have to do for “The Goon” is put Mickey Rourke back in his Marv makeup from “Sin City,” add some depression-era clothes and — voila — you’ve got your Goon.

However, Powell believes that moviegoers are ready for a film like this for a few reasons.

“I have the feeling the Adult Swim crowd is there, and that wasn’t there before,” said Powell. “And films like ‘Beowulf’ have come out that aren’t family-style animated films. I think the doors are opening. American audiences are starting to embrace different types of material animated.”

Rosario Dawson to wear mask in Sin City 2

Posted by LiveFor on March 5, 2009

Superhero Hype have this little bit of confirmation from Rosario Dawson about the progress of Sin City 2.

Q: Jamie King said she’s read the “Sin City 2” script. Have you?
Rosario Dawson: No, I have not. She’s working with Frank [Miller] to possibly produce something together. I just talked to Frank about it though and said he finished it a couple of months ago so I’m really excited to get it going. Supposedly it’s going to happen in 2009.

Q: Did he tell you anything specifically about the script?
Dawson: I get to wear a mask in this one. Is that specific enough?

Sin City 2 News – The script is finished and filming to begin this year…maybe

Posted by LiveFor on January 13, 2009

MTV have more news on the fate of Sin City 2

Jamie King appears to have confirmed last year’s reports that Frank Miller has turned in his script for “Sin City 2” and the film may even begin shooting in 2009. The “Fanboys” and “The Spirit” actress hopes for a start date soon and said that she doesn’t have any nude scenes in Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s sequel, according to George “El Guapo” Rousch at Latino Review..

The report stokes a prolonged trickle of “Sin City 2” rumors from the past year, as good a sign as any that Miller’s classic Dark Horse Comics series is inching closer to becoming a reality behind the scenes.

King played the role of Marv’s murdered gal pal Goldie, as well as her twin sister Wendy, in the first “Sin City” film and is slated to return for the new follow-up. The Golden Globe winning star of the “The Wrestler,” Mickey Rourke, may or may not return as Marv when filming begins. Miller says Marv has a big role to play in the film and wants Rourke back if he’s willing.

There are many possible reasons for the film’s delay, not the least of which is Rourke’s reluctance. The star has experienced rejuvenated stardom since the first “Sin City” hit it big. Now, with a Golden Globe under his belt and a potential Oscar on the horizon, it’s entirely possible he wants more for his labor.

Meanwhile, Robert Rodriguez’s controversial break from the Directors Guild to give Miller directing credit in their first outing together proved to be a hurdle before. If they’re looking to return to “Sin City 2” in that unsanctioned dual-directing capacity, there is likely to be red tape to cut once again.

Posted by LiveFor on January 9, 2009

Collider had this interview with big man Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile, Sin City, Daredevil, The Last Mimzy).

Michael talked about how he got involved in “Slammin’ Salmon” and what it was like making the movie. And with his next movie “Street Fighter” around the corner, we also talked about playing Balrog and what went into that role. Finally, I tried to find out what’s up with “Sin City 2”.

Aronofsky want’s to recut The Fountain and Rourke says Sin City 2 is good to go

Posted by LiveFor on December 5, 2008

MTV were speaking to Darren Aronofsky, whose new movie, “The Wrestler,” won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival two months ago, and has just been nominated for Independent Spirit Awards for Best Feature, Best Cinematography and Best Male Lead ( Mickey Rourke).

Interestingly Aronofsky said he would like to do a sort of recut on his film, “The Fountain,” (check out the review for The Fountain here).

“It wouldn’t be a ‘director’s cut, more like an alternate story told with the addition of unused footage from the first go-round. This would be a complicated project on a couple of levels, though, and it’s at least a few years away.”

They then spoke to Mickey Rourke about the status of “Sin City 2,” in which he will again place the excellent Marv. The project appears to have been held up by Robert Rodriguez’s dispute with the Directors Guild of America. Rodriguez quit the group when it refused to allow him to credit Frank Miller as the co-director of the 2005 “Sin City.” Once that mess has all been sorted out the sequel should be put on the fast track.

“Frank’s ready,” said Rourke. “And I’m ready, too.”

How do you feel about The Fountain being recut to be a different story? Would you see it? What did you think of it? Sin City 2 should hopefully be cool…think it will all depend on how The Spirit does at the box office.
