Nick Cave writing CROW Script?

Bleeding Cool reports that screenwriter Nick Cave is coming aboard the new filmed adaptation of James O'Barr's The Crow. The movie has been in development now for a little over a year with director Stephen Norrington working on the first drafts of  the script.

It's unclear what this means for Norrington's involvement with the property.  When we heard from Norrington last February, he was feeling pretty positive about the project. They were in the process of casting the film and the director was crossing his fingers for a Summer start.

Stay tuned to Comics2Film as this story develops.

Marvel Anime Coming to G4

From a press release...

Los Angeles, CA, July 26, 2010 - G4 will be the exclusive U.S. television home of four brand-new anime series featuring some of the most successful and iconic brands from the Marvel Universe.  Produced by Madhouse for Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan (SPEJ), these four original series - "Iron Man," "X-MEN," "Wolverine" and "Blade" - will premiere on the network in 2011 and will air as standalone series made up of twelve 30-minute episodes under the guidance of Warren Ellis.

"Iron Man" In an effort to make amends for his weapons manufacturing past, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device.  And when the reactor-in-construction is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.

"X-MEN" The X-MEN are reunited following the death of a teammate, and are summoned by Charles Xavier to Japan following the abduction of Hisako Ichiki (Armor).  There, they confront the U-MEN, a lunatic cult that steals and transplants mutant organs to further strengthen their own army, and the battle for justice is on.

"Wolverine" Based on the popular graphic novel by Frank Miller, the series begins in Japan, where Logan is challenged by Shingen Yashida, the notorious leader of a powerful mafia clan.  When Shingen's employee Yukio, a female assassin, falls out of Shingen's favor, she must kill him or be killed.  Teaming up with Logan, the pair seek out the villain to exact their revenge.

"Blade" Eric Brooks -- known as Blade -- seeks revenge on Deacon Frost, the vampire lord who killed his mother while she was still pregnant with Eric.  With all the powers of a vampire and none of their weaknesses, Blade's quest leads him throughout Southeast Asia in search of Frost, and, in Viet Nam, he discovers a vampire plot that threatens to take down the whole world.

 

 

Kosinski Angling For OBLIVION Movie

Deadline.com reports that Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is out pitching a film version of his illustrated Radical Press novel Oblivion. Given his relationship with Disney, Kosinski is said to be taking it to them first, but will continue to pitch it if things don't spark with the mouse house.

The book was plotted by Kosinski and written by Arvid Nelson. According to the report, the book "takes place in an apocalyptic future where most people live above the clouds because the surface of the Earth is uninhabitable. A soldier is stuck on the desolate Earth repairing drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien race called The Scavengers. He comes across a beautiful woman who has crashed in a craft. Together they take an epic adventure that changes his world view."

Barry Levine of Radical would also produce.

 

 

Captured at Comic-Con: Test photo of Chris Evans as CAPTAIN AMERICA

C2F Quick Hits

  • There's a new trailer up for Stephen Frears comic-strip-based Tamara Drewe. Hit the YouTube for a look...
     
  • A test photo of Chris Evans in costume from Captain America: The First Avenger has appeared online at Ace Showbiz. The image is a photo from one of the big projection screens at Comic-con's infamous Hall H, taken during the Marvel panel last Saturday.
     
  • ThinkMcFlyThink has photos of Josh Hutcherson (Journey to the Center of the Earth) that were taken during his Spider-Man screen test.
     
  • ShowBizSpy has a second-hand report from Fox News that claims Eva Longoria is in the mix as the Wasp in Marvel Studios' Avengers. She was rumored for the part last year after being spotted with some Avengers books in her hands while in the parking garage at Marvel's offices. Supposedly she did some green screen testing in the spring and unnamed sources claims Marvel is in negotiations with her about the role. The original story from Fox News could not be located online.
     
  • Thanks to AntoBlueberry and Wiseguy for the submissions.

I guess Warner is making SInestro into a Joker with the scars. Looks like he either carved or had burned into his face the Lantern symbol.

spiderhero 7/27/2010 8:36:29 AM

Also, Renolds gets props in my book for that.

That footage of Ryan and the kid from SDCC was cute. Ryan really seems to enjoy the fan interaction.

Eva Longoria as the Wasp would work. It seems the cast introduced at SDCC isn't the entire cast. If there's a Wasp then I'd imagine there'd have to be a Hank Pym Giant Man/Ant Man as well.

I'm not a big anime-style fan, but I'll definitely check out the Marvel anime on G4.

I'm looking forward to seeing Evans in the final costume, not just a test version, throwing the shield.

Next year's going to be a great year for super hero movies. I read a commentary in Entertainnment Weekly suggesting comic book movies have reached their zenith and are on a downslide. I think that's wrong. Next year will see comic movies rule the cineplexes and launch a new generation of the genre. The only reason this could be counted as a down year is because of the properties that hit the big screen. Discounting Iron Man 2, of course, it has been a down year but only because of the books brought to the screen. Jonah Hex and the lot. They were weak properties given weak treatments. They were second, or third, tier properties bought cheaply and given small budgets. Studios should forget these movies and concentrate on the top tier properties. Instead of spending money on three B-level DC comics properties, put that money into fianlly delivering THE Superman movie of its generation. Not every comic book needs to be made into a movie.

GL is gonna kick ass!

Those posters are great!

Too bad Warner Bros sucks!!!!!..... Warner Bros. dropped the ball at comicon this year BIG TIME. What idiot decided to combine the Green Lantern Panel with Harry Potter. Harry Potter has enough fans to have its own CONVENTION. This screwed ALOT of Green Lantern fans out of seeing the GL Panel.

I like the GL posters

scoxocs 7/27/2010 10:15:50 AM

Ryan Reynolds must have been the coolest kid at school.  Even when he plays an a-hole, he's totally likeable.  I can't wait for GL and then Deadpool.
