Robert Rodriguez Approached To Direct "Deadpool" Film

Robert Rodriguez Approached To Direct "Deadpool" Film  We just found out that Fox has approached Robert Rodriguez to direct the upcoming film Deadpool staring Ryan Reynolds. Rodriguez has confirmed he has read the script. "They sent me a script to read, [but] I've been really swamped with this other stuff," Rodriguez said. "I've not decided whether ... anything I do would be after 'Spy Kids' — that gives some breathing room. So whether or not I would help develop or not is the question right now." And what did he think of the script? "It was really good," Rodriguez enthused. "It wasn't supposed to be sent out, it was one of those early drafts, they were probably like 'Robert just finished 'Predators,' let's see what he thinks at this early stage' ... I got an early sneak peek at it." Rodriguez added that he is a fan of Ryan Reynolds continuing with the role and that he did a great job in wo

Del Toro Set to Write and Produce Haunted Mansion

Del Toro Set to Write and Produce Film for Disney SAN DIEGO, Calif. – July 22, 2010 – Guillermo del Toro surprised the 6,500 fans gathered today at Comic-Con with the announcement that he is currently developing a new film for The Walt Disney Studios based on the classic Disney theme park attraction, The Haunted Mansion… “Dark imagery is an integral part of the Walt Disney legacy.

Last year their superstar, Jason Giambi, went to the superrich Yankees. It hasn’t made any difference to Oakland: their fabulous season included an American League record for consecutive victories.

New Image Of The Buffed Out Thor

New Image Of The Buffed Out Thor When Kenneth Branagh walked through the doors of Marvel Studios to discuss directing Thor, executives greeted the Brit with two questions. The first was a polite "How are you doing?" The second was whether Branagh had ever been to Comic-Con. "I think they were warning me," says Branagh, known more for his adaptations of Shakespeare than superhero stories. "They said to brace myself, that I'd never seen anything like it." Not unless Branagh spends much time dressed as Chewbacca. But if you're making a movie about heroes with a predilection for capes and spandex, you had better be prepared to face the critical eyes of Comic-Con, the nation's largest gathering of fanboys, Twilight moms and all variants of geeks in between. The four-day San Diego convention, which kicks off Thursday after a preview Wednesday, will draw more than 125,000 pop-culture fanatics of film, television, comic books and video ga

Smallville And The Rebirth of Superman By Jonathan Cyfer

Smallville And The Rebirth of Superman By Jonathan Cyfer As just about all the superhero loving world knows, this coming Season of Smallville will be the last season. Depending on your level of Smallville "fanhood", your response to this news probably ranges from some minor sadness to virtually suicidal depression. The silver lining in the cloud of Kryptonite is that Chris Nolan ( The Dark Knight ) is at the helm of the Superman reboot film: Superman: The Man of Steel . So Smallville will end in Spring 2011 and the new Superman film will be released the following year. This begs the question of just how connected the two projects are. If you've watched the Smallville series and the Christopher Reeve Superman films, you know that a lot of the elements from the films made their way into the Smallville mythos. For instance, crystals seem to play an important role, and the Fortress of Solitude in the Arctic continues to ring with the voice of Jor-El. There's still

Aaron Sorkin To Direct John Edwards Film

Aaron Sorkin To Direct And Write John Edwards Film Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has acquired the rights to the Andrew Young book about former presidential candidate John Edwards , " The Politician: An Insider's Account of John Edwards's Pursuit of the Presidency and the Scandal That Brought Him Down ." A TV and film mainstay, Sorkin will make his feature directorial debut with the project, which he will also write and produce. Young first volunteered for the Edwards Senate campaign in 1998 and eventually became one of the North Carolina pol's most trusted confidants. During the 2008 presidential primary, Edwards began making unethical demands of Young relating to the candidate's mistress and her child with him. Young's book was published by Thomas Dunne Books earlier this year. "This is a first-hand account of an extraordinary story filled with motivations, decisions and consequences that would have lit Shakespeare up," said Sorkin. &quo

Movie Studios And Comic-Con

Movie Studios Build Hype With Comic-Con When the seventh annual San Diego Comic-Con took place in 1976, the gathering of a few thousand fans was just what its name implied: a convention about comic books. That year, however, Lucasfilm Ltd . set up a booth and held a slideshow presentation about a movie nearly a year away from release, " Star Wars ." More than 30 years later, the convention appears to be more and more a place where movie studios and television networks can follow in the footsteps of "Star Wars'" by giving hard-core fans an early look at upcoming releases. Sometimes, it's a very early look. Walt Disney Pictures came to Comic-Con in 2008 with test footage from what was then referred to as "TR2N," a sequel to the 1982 cult classic " Tron ," one of the first films to use computer-generated imagery. The special effects and appearance by Jeff Bridges, reprising his role in the original, made a big splash with the audienc
