FORGOTTEN Comic Recalled by Producers

Producers John Wells and Don Murphy have snatched up rights to the obscure indie comics title 'Forgotten' for development as a feature film according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The book, created by Evan Young and Jareth Grealish, focuses on a man who, no matter what he does or whom he meets, is forgotten five minutes later. His powers offer him the unique opportunity to investigate and solve problematic situations, but also leave him completely isolated.

Wells is producing through John Wells Productions along with company president Claire Polstein. Murphy is working through his Angryfilms shingle along with Susan Montford.

 

Chaykin Titles Part of New Management Shingle

A Hollywood Reporter blurb detailing Alex Cole's new management shingle Elevate Entertainment has an interesting side-note for comics fans.

The article states that Elevate has an overall deal with comics vet Howard Chaykin ('American Flagg!') that gives them options on two titles from his existing creator owned library as well as obligates him to create three new comics that will be spun into TV shows or feature films.

Already in the works with Chaykin are a spy action drama starring Vinnie Jones and a teen action feature film.

Lauren Shuler Donner Talks Gambit and Deadpool

IESB.net chatted with 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' about the upcoming 'X-Men: First Class' movie, as well as future plans for Gambit and Deadpool.

Donner echoed other recent interviews in putting emphasis on the 'First Class' spinoff.  She does say that she'd like to do more with Gambit, as he's her favorite character, but it wouldn't be right to have him in the 'First Class' movie.

IESB also asked about a 'Deadpool' spin-off. She confirmed she's been talking about it with Fox and the question would be answered soon (presumably after the performance of 'Wolverine' is assessed).

Click through for the video interview...

Bale on BATMAN 3

TotalFilm.com has a brief chat with actor Christian Bale, who talks about Heath Ledger, the Oscar snub and, of course, the sequel to 'The Dark Knight':

"Will we do a third movie? It's got to be the right story. You can't make something like The Dark Knight and then come out with something disappointing.

"I would like it if people say, 'You'll never make a good third movie.' I say, 'OK, let's make a third movie in that case, let's prove them wrong. But that's just me. The fact is, I have to! I've signed up! Chris doesn't. So I'm in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn't want to!"

Ok MLAforcer and Jawbreaker, bring on your heat against a wrestler being cast in the Dead of Night film. I'm really not in the mood for another damn flame war, but know this, Kurt Angle is an Olympic gold medalist in mat wrestling. He won the gold at the 1996 games in Atlanta.
