Captain Nemo’s adventures face another rewrite

Posted by LiveFor on July 8, 2009

The 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea remake is heading through stormy waters at the moment. After the middling response to Terminator Salvation this new McG may not go as smoothly as planned. It has already had a rewrite – Justin Marks (Masters of the Universe, Super Max) was hired in February to rewrite Bill Marsilli’s (Deja Vu) but looks like another one is in the works. The original script sounded terrible.

“A fugitive whaler teams up with a naturalist, a mysterious woman and a captain of a futuristic submarine, to search for a lost underwater civilization that holds libraries of vast knowledge and a weapon with the power to destroy mankind.”

Randall Wallace (Braveheart, Pearl Harbor, We Were Soldiers, and The Rookie) has been hired to rewrite Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo.

This is meant to be an origin story for the mysterious Captain Nemo and his submarine, the Nautilus. McG wants Will Smith as Nemo.

Nothing I have heard about this project fills me with any hope for what should be an amazing adaption of a wonderful piece of work.

The Goblin says "Get out of my House!"

Posted by LiveFor on June 22, 2009

:Visual-effects specialist Charles Gibson will make his directorial debut with the family comedy The Goblin, scripted by Geoff Rodkey.

According to Variety the story revolves around a suburban family that moves into its new home only to find a curmudgeonly goblin who doesn’t want them there.

“It’s about creating a goblin that will appeal to audiences of all ages,” said Matt Williams one of the producers of the film.

Gibson won visual-effects Oscars for Babe and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. He performed visual effects and second unit directing on the “Pirates” franchise and Terminator Salvation.

As he is from a visual effects background than I can imagine this looking rather nice. Sounds like it will be a good family film, but it all depends upon who they get to voice the goblin.

Terminator 2 in 3D and Avatar in post-production since March 2008

Posted by LiveFor on June 14, 2009


At 2009’s ‘Produced By’ Conference, in Los Angeles, James Cameron’s packed session revealed some pretty juicy stuff about Avatar and Terminator.

Reports from Nikkie Finke’s Deadline Hollywood Daily include the startling revelation that “Jim Cameron acknowledged he’s still in post-production on Avatar and has been since March 2008 even before live action photography ended.”

Here’s the good stuff from her report from notes taken within the closed door seminar.

“I feel like I’ve been living in a cave for a year,” he told the “Produced By” Conference. No kidding!

He also enthusiastically endorsed the Avatar videogame which debuted at E3. “I’m not personally a gamer, but my younger brother Dave is a big gamer,” Cameron noted, and together they made sure they liked it. He noted that “in some cases the videogame branded with film hasn’t been as good as a film.” He didn’t name names, but he said the Avatar game will be “the same quality level” as the movie.

Cameron also told the audience he is up-converting Terminator 2 to 3-D if it’s cost effective.

Cameron talked again about how he wrote the script for Avatar back in the mid-1990s when he and Stan Winston co-founded Digital Domain. But when he took the screenplay to their special effects lab, Cameron was told it was just not possible to make the film with the current technology. So he sat on the project for more than a decade.

Cameron and his people on the panel expressed confidence that, by the time Avatar is released by 20th Century Fox on December 18th, there will be “several thousand 3-D screens” capable of showing the film.

Cameron also explained that so much has changed since he shot the Universal Studios Tour’s Terminator 3-D ride: back then in 1995, each camera weighed 235 pounds and he had to shoot it wide open so he used so much light no one else could do night shoots at the same time. For Avatar, he created the Fusion Camera System technology for photo-realistic computer-generated characters through motion capture animation.

Cameron said that he wants 3-D to be less noticeable so it doesn’t “take people out of the experience”. He stressed that Avatar is not going to hit audiences on the head with 3-D even though almost every shot is green screen. But not 3-D constantly. He wants “one immersible experience” with 2-D and 3-D together and the audience so engrossed that they “won’t notice the difference” .

‘Christmas’ could very well be soon known as ‘Avatar’ in the true Sci Fi households. Only six months to go! We’re hoping to get some early footage (hoping). Keep your eyes peeled, right here.

Terminator 2 in 3D would be great but even better would be Aliens. Thanks to Pam for sending me the link.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – MTV Movie Awards Clip

Posted by LiveFor on June 1, 2009

There are a whole heap of Decepticons in this clip from that was shown at the MTV Movie Awards. Insecticons, Starscream and it basically makes the Harvester attack scene in Terminator Salvation seem a little stale.

Avatar Mech? Could be.

Posted by LiveFor on May 26, 2009

This could possibly be our first look at one of the Mech Units from James Cameron’s Avatar. MarketSaw posted and they are usually on the button with these kind of things so, fingers crossed, this is the genuine article.

Even if it isn’t it is still a nice piece of design. Looks like something from Aliens, which was also directed by James Cameron.

Now that Terminator Salvation has been out for a bit in the States and you’ve had a chance to see Sam Worthington in action do you think he will be able to carry the Avatar film? Cameron has said that Sam’s character is going to be in every scene of the film.
