Smallville teases 10th season blowout. Plus: New Walking Dead TV spot. Kosinski's Oblivion gets Departed writer. Tucci talks Captain America and more! It's your Comics2Film 10.9.13!

 

 

 

OBLIVION Gets DEPARTED Writer

Heat Vision reports that Oscar-winning writer William Monahan is set to pen the script for the film versionof Joseph Kosinski's Radical Press illustrated novel Oblivion. Kosinski is, of course, the director of Tron: Legacy and would direct this movie for Disney as well.

Monahan won an Oscar for The Departed which adapted the Hong Kong thriller Infernal Affairs.

Heat Vison provides this description for the concept: "The story is set on a future Earth, where civilization lives above the clouds and alien scavengers stalk the irradiated surface below. When a surface drone repairman is thrust into an adventure after he finds a woman inside a crashed spacepod planetside."

 

 

C2F Quick Hits

  • Actor Josh Brolin talked with MTV Splash Page about his stint in the soon-to-lens Men in Black III. Brolin assures fans that he's not replacing Tommy Lee Jones, even though they both play Agent K in the movie. He also praises Will Smith's work ethic.
     
  • Collider.com had a chat with actor Stanley Tucci about his role as Dr. Erskine in Captain America: The First Avenger. He said he's not overly concerned about emulating the comics as his task is to play the character as envisioned in the script. "...at least in the drawings that I saw of Erskine...I don’t look anything like that, like he was in the comic book. But the essence of the character is absolutely truthful to the story, to the original comics, which is, he’s this very smart, very sweet scientist who escapes the Nazis and helps create Captain America."
     
  • Comics Continuum has photos and a plot summary for the second episode of the second season of Human Target, called "Ilsa Pucci." It airs Friday, Oct. 1 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

I really don'y care what Erskine looks like any more than I care what Hydra Agent #4 looks like. (Actaully, I may care more about the latter...)

Since you brought up both shows, can I relate how pissed I am Human Target and Smallville are being shown in the same time slot? (Considering this is the last season of Smallville and FOX is clearly killing HT mind you...)

The flying teaser is just a reuse of the opening dream sequence from the season 9 finale.  I'm still hoping we get some flights in tights prior to the final scene of the final episode, though.  Definitely pumped for the Final Season!

Im excited about this season of Smallville....  looks like they are going to close it out great

and its no competition with Human Target, I save myself grief and I try never to get involved with any Fox shows nowadays since they cancel anything good anyway.

Walking Dead Rules!!!!! nuff said could care less about anything else on here. Will wait for a trailer for Cap before comenting

monelonmonday 9/13/2010 8:33:20 AM

 bad thing about the CW & FOX at least here in tampa is neither one is on demand good thing is the dvr will record 2 at a time

I got my son to read the walking dead... actually he saw the books on my desk (as i was re-reading them) and asked what are they.  I told him the best Zombie books ever done.  He devoured them and agreed that it was one of the best graphic novels he had ever read... *sob* makes me proud.  I have a viewing partner for the series!

I figured Lex Luthor would return for this season. He had to. And that looks like the Superman Returns suit.

So Men In Black 3 is filming soon. Sounds good. I'm still waiting for the update on Ghostbusters 3. According to Dan Aykroyd, that's supposed to start filming in December. Please no more delays.

Smallville is going to rock this season. I'm glad I stuck with it throughout even though I had love/hate relationship with it. I think the "happy ending" is going to be well worth it.

Oblivion sounds better and better and now with a credible writer we may be in for a real treat

Wasn't watching Human Target either way. But if it fails at Fox maybe the CW can pick it up since  WB produces it

Sure I'll se MIB3, hope it's better than 2 though.

Tucci, not even I care much wether you look like Erskine did in the comic book or not. Just make a credible scientist, which your looks do, and we'll be fine

Love/Hate relationship is a great way to put it Wiseguy.  Although I don't think I ever hated it, there were just a lot of lame episodes with some amazing ones sprinkled throughout.  Can't wait to see the last season though.  I wonder if Pete and Lana will make appearances at all?

Mayhem101878 9/13/2010 12:04:17 PM

Am I mistaken or in the last spot, the one with the suit, or is that a soundbite from Dr. Swan aka Christopher Reeve?

Anyhow Smallville looks great I can't wait until next Friday when it comes back I currious as to how they handle Darkseid. I stay through out the series even though many people put it down. I think it will be worth the pay off. Plus now it's paired yet again with Supernatural another show I can't wait for.

Like everyone else I don't really care what Erskine looks like the only reason he is a major character in this movie is because he creates the super soldier serium that makes Steve Rodgers into Captain America I doubt he'll even last the whole movie since he gets killed soon after creating Cap.

I'm interested in seeing MIB3 I just hope they keep in a few of the aliens like the worms and Frank the Pug

The great thing about Human Target being on Fox is that you can just watch it on Fox's website.
