Pretty Boy Floyd Film Has Robbed A Director

Pretty Boy Floyd Film Has Robbed A Director Writer-director Wayne Kramer has signed on to helm the crime thriller “ Pretty Boy Floyd " for Myriad Pictures. Kevin Bernhardt wrote the screenplay based on the notorious gangster and bank robber, whose full name was Charles Arthur Floyd. “Pretty Boy” committed numerous robberies and other crimes around Kansas City and the Midwest in the late ’20s and ’30s -- obtaining the populist nickname “ The Robin Hood of the Cookson Hills ” along the way -- before his death in 1934 at age 30. “My approach is to bring 21st century style and energy to Kevin Bernhardt’s meticulously researched screenplay without sacrificing the verisimilitude of the period or over-sensationalizing the characters themselves,” says Kramer. “At the heart of ‘Pretty Boy Floyd’ is a great love story about an outlaw on the run who can’t stay away from the woman he loves, no matter how destructive the relationship is for both of them -- which ultimately leads to his

You Be the judge I have included the original scene. Which one did you enjoy more? Watch after the jump..

The Social Network Teaser Trailer

The Social Network Teaser Trailer Columbia Pictures has just released the very first teaser trailer for its upcoming film, The Social Network . Like the poster that debuted last week, the teaser is sparse in its detail, but intriguing and provocative at the same time. The Social Network, otherwise known as “the Facebook (Facebook) movie,” is based in part on the book The Accidental Billionaires. It chronicles the formative days of Facebook, from its founding in Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard dorm room through its early rise to success. Written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher, the film stars Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg. It hits theaters this October. Watch the trailer after the jump.. The tag line for the film, “ You can’t make 500 million friends without making a few enemies ” seems to sum up some of those early days, and the film is as much an exploration of young people coming to terms with creating something bigger than themselves as much as it is about loyalty,

The Martian Chronicles Ready To Become A Film

The Martian Chronicles Ready To Become A Film Fox-based producer Jon Davis , who helped bring the world Alien Vs Predator and I Robot , has grabbed up the rights to Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles has apparently been optioned and  plans to turn it into a movie. The book, published in 1950, has been adapted for the screen before, albeit the smaller one: it was the source material for a miniseries that featured Rock Hudson and Bernadette Peters. Now, though, with Avatar’s after effects (not to mention profits) pulsing through executives’ veins and budgets, you’ve got to figure Fox might just leap at the idea of bringing Bradbury’s effective prose to cinemas. Chronicles charts various human journeys to Mars and the interactions they end up having with the natives, not all of them friendly. But while the writer layered in a healthy subtext of philosophical curiosity, we’re not sure that would survive the translation into a movie. Please Leave A Comment- Source- LATimes

Major League 4 May Step Up To The Plate Soon

Major League 4 May Step Up To The Plate Soon Bob Uecker let the cat out of the bag last year, announcing at a sports game (well, of course!) that a new " Major League " movie was in the works. David S.Ward, the writer/director of the hit 1989 movie today who backed up Uecker's comments, confirming that there is indeed a new film in the works - and unlike the last sequel (the poorly-received "Major League : Back in the Minors'' that Ward wasn't involved with), it'll reunite the original cast. "We're actually talking about doing one right now. I've written, what I see, as Major League 3. We're putting that together as we speak - in fact, next week I'm off to talk to James Robinson at Morgan Creek about it. "It's 20 years later, and Wild Thing comes out of retirement to work with this 19-year-old player", Ward says of the storyline. "We've actually got three new characters in the new film.

Megan Fox Wants To Play A Lesbian Superhero In "Gen 13"

Megan Fox Wants To Play A Lesbian Superhero In "Gen 13" Megan Fox recently talked about her upcoming projects and a project that she'd like to be a part of, she was quoted saying; "I don't want people to protest this, but I would like to be Rainmaker in ' Gen 13 ' if they ever made that into a movie," she told Fox News. "She's a Native American, and I have a little bit of that blood in me," she said about the role, before adding "It would be a bit of a stretch - but if Jake Gyllenhaal can be the Prince of Persia, I think that I can do that." Rainmaker is a fictional character from the popular Gen 13 comic book series. She has the power to manipulate the weather and water with her thoughts and is also an expert in combat.When Rainmaker isn't fighting super villains she is promoting equal rights and preaching to her team mates. Fox also announced that she wasn't returning to Transformers 3 and that she could

First Look At Puss In Boots

First Look At Puss In Boots To all those who thought we might use a different word for cat in the headline above, shame on you. Now, on with the story… While the big news this weekend has been about Pixar’s latest success, DreamWorks shoved the first image from Shrek spin-off Puss In Boots into the world, along with more details about the story and casting. The stand-alone Puss adventure will find the feisty feline (voiced as usual by Antonio Banderas ) taking on a mission to steal the famous, golden egg-laying goose of fairy tale fame. To complete the job, he teams up with Humpty Dumpty ( Zach Galifianakis , the most popular comedian-turned-actor of the moment, given how many jobs he’s got lined up), a criminal mastermind, and the savvy Kitty, voiced by Salma Hayek . Voice recording for this one has been underway for a few months now, with Banderas and Hayek apparently getting to share booth time occasionally so they can riff off one another. Should help with the catty chemi

Tomorrow, Our Heroes Will Be Digital By Jonathan Cyfer

Tomorrow, Our Heroes Will Be Digital By Jonathan Cyfer I've just read several announcements such as DC Comics Brings Batman and Pals to iPad, PSP , saying that our superhero comic books have now gone digital. In addition to, DC has issued it's own press release on this monumental event. With the launching of Kindle by Amazon some time ago, there was a collective groan among bibliophiles that the hard copy text book was dying and only the digital incarnation would remain. Now it seems this is happening in the comic book world as well. You can already access comic books online such as the Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited collection. Free samples are even available from a wide span of Marvel comic history spanning the 1940s to the present. I find myself wondering how high the value of older hard copy comic books will be when they are no longer produced. But what does this have to do with films? Nothing and everything. It's widely believed that the modern comi
