TURF Movie Coming From KICK-ASS Director/Producer?

Last week saw the release of the new comic 'Turf', created by UK talker Jonathan Ross (Mania's Chris Smits reviewed it and scored it a solid B).

Now, Ross is talking to the Guardian paper and revealed that 'Kick-Ass' director/producer/writer Matthew Vaughn is eying the property as a potential film project.

Here's Image Comics' official description of the book:

"Set in Prohibition-era New York, TURF offers a twist on the hard boiled crime thriller, adds vampires and aliens to the traditional mix of booze, broads and bullets as it chronicles the eruption of a vengeful gang war between booze-smuggling mobsters and the blood thirsty Dragonmir Family. As an ancient prophecy unfolds amidst the maelstrom of violence, the entire city is engulfed by the brutal conflict and the only glimmer of hope is an unlikely alliance between tough guy Eddie Falco and a stranger from another world."

Mania readers will recall that at the recent SXSW festival both Vaughn and 'Kick-Ass' creator Mark Millar told the Movie Maven Tara Perry that Vaughn's next movie would be a comic adaptation, and likely not one of Millar's books. Rumors from late March indicated that the movie might be Bloodshot based on the Acclaim/Valiant comics character.

Since Vaughn seems to prefer working independently, and given that Ross' wife Jane Goldman has been Vaughn's writing partner for his two most recent films, it seems that 'Turf' is a good bet for Vaughn's next project.

 

 

Evans set to Bulk Up for CAPTAIN AMERICA

Access Hollywood chatted up Chris Evans who said that casting him in the lead role of 'The First Avenger: Captain America' is "Gonna be the worst thing that ever happened to Marvel."

Kidding aside, Evans said he's looking forward to suiting up as a Marvel superhero again, and getting into super soldier shape after shedding some bulk for 'The Losers'.

"I’ve been down that road, hopefully it won’t be too different," Evans said of the costume. "I lost a little bit of weight the last project I had… I’ll probably hit the gym again."

Evans also said he's in the dark about the casting of the female lead in the film.

C2F Quick Hits:

  • Clark Duke talks about 'Kick-Ass', sequel and his comics reading habits with the Comics Continuum. "It's tonally one of the closest adaptations from a comic to a movie I've ever seen," said Duke. "Anyone who's read the comic knows there's a lot of shocking shit in there, and the movie ramps it up a notch."
     
  • Louis Leterrier talked about 'Incredible Hulk 2' with IGN but sounds like he's losing interest in the prospect. "I'd love to do a 'Hulk' sequel," he said but added he sees problems with the notion. "I think In a world where  Avengers exist a Hulk sequel wouldn't make sense. If the Hulk wreaks havoc, the Avengers would come and stop Hulk."
     
  • Variety takes a look at the challenges Matthew Vaughn faced bringing 'Kick-Ass' to life on a relatively modest budget of $28 million.
     
  • Producer Jerry Bruckheimer chatted with IGN about the 'Lone Ranger' movie, which presently seems to be taking a back seat to 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4'. "We have a script that we're rewriting right now. [Johnny Depp is] still very much involved. He created a fantastic character [in Tonto]. We have photographs of the character that we can't show you," Bruckheimer said. He also adds that Depp's Tonto will be smart, mystical and funny.
     
  • Variety reports that Luc Besson's film 'The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec' will find its way to fans in the UK courtesy of a distribution deal with Optimum Releasing. No word as to whether or not EurpaCorp will seek a U.S. release for the movie. According to the report, the film tells the story of a novelist/detective and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, dinosaurs and other distractions. Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.

More pics of Scar Jo never hurt.

Iron Man2- MAN! I think we're running out of adjectives to describe our excitement over this sh*t.

lancedenier 4/13/2010 9:45:56 AM

Louis Letterier is a dipshit if he thinks the Hulk and the Avengers can't exist in the same universe.  Has this douche hammer never read a comic before?

Calibur454 4/13/2010 9:52:41 AM

Well put about Iron Man 2 Violator

Bruckheimer Lone Ranger = rental

never heard of turf ao I don't know anything about it to comment

Hulk and the avengers could be done that moron leterier must be smoking something

Will see Kick Ass this friday Oh Yea!!!!

mike10 4/13/2010 10:12:36 AM

Leterrier means the Avengers will try to stop the Hulk. Anyway the Hulk could be on the other side of the country or planet and till any superhero shows up the Hulk could be gone.

MrJawbreakingEquilibrium 4/13/2010 10:20:46 AM

He didn't say they couldn't - he said it wouldn't make sense you dip shit illiterate. Read much? Maybe take the condom off your head next time you give reading a go?

jfdavis 4/13/2010 10:39:51 AM

Hulk 2- Somehow he's had a comic book series of his own for like 40 odd years. Yeah, Iron Man, Thor, Ghost Rider and Dr. Strange to name just a brief few have gone up against him but there' so much more to the character than "Hulk smash!" that warrants a sequel movie...

Calibur454 4/13/2010 10:40:19 AM

Jawbreak- he said a hulk 2 sequel wouldn't make since if he were in the avengers movie. I wouldn't mind seeing another hulk movie if it was done right

Even if a hulk sequel is done he could still be an avenger. although i do admit that the avengers batteling the hulk is something I would like to see. Perhaps that could be the Hulk sequel the hulk raises hell and is beaten by the avengers at the end of the movie and then in the avengers movie they try to  help Bruce control when he uses the power of the hulk for good- that could be a side story for the avengers movie though I doubt it would happen.

  MrJawbreakingEquilibrium ,  how old are you?

Calibur he said: 

"I'd love to do a 'Hulk' sequel," he said but added he sees problems with the notion. "I think In a world where Avengers exist a Hulk sequel wouldn't make sense.  Meaning that if the Hulk was out there kicking ass and the Avengers didn't show up that it wouldn't make sense, which is true.  And if they showed up in a Hulk sequel then it wouldn't be a "Hulk" movie anymore.  Plus - it'd be a great deal more expensive than a Hulk solo movie needs to be.  I mean even in the comics it never really made sense - you have all these superhero groups outside of the Avengers and everybody was too busy to take care of Hulk when he was running around the States at least.  Not that I didn't like them but I always wondered when it happened where was everybody else?  Anybody else unless they just ignored it because they didn't want their asses kicked.

I think the way they should handle the Avengers vs Hulk fight is in the opening of the Avengers - just open right away mid-fight and then have them stop him and go on with the story there.  That would be bad ass.  Screw anything that led up to it - just thrust us in the middle of the fight.  Maybe show a shadowy figure somewhere watching that happens to be Loki and do whatever - I don't feel like getting into it but you see where I'm getting at.

Not if he was in the Avengers or not that they couldn't.

 

qwed88 - I'm old enough to read and comprehend what I've read and not be an ass about it but not old enough to not rag on somebody for not doing any of the above.  What's it to you?
