Bleeding Cool reports that the various industry tracking board pay-sites lit up with the J. Scott Campbell property yesterday. “As far as I can gather, the project is currently being shopped around studios by producer JC Spink. The talent bait he has on the hook are three actresses: Milla Jovavich, Kate Beckinsale and Sofia Vergara,” writes BC’s Brendon Connelly. “We don’t know yet if there’s a script, or even a scriptwriter. Best guess, there isn’t a director – but I’d say Paul WS Anderson and Len Wiseman are probably in with a shout, wouldn’t you? Maybe Sofia Vergara goes to bed with a hack too.” Sometimes, the truth hurts.
Release date: TBA
SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
Latino Review claims that actor Michael Shannon is in a motion-capture suit in the following photo, but I’m having trouble seeing it:
I see a mo-cap man, but it looks like Shannon — who plays Zod in the film — is wearing sweats. Of more interest to me is the attempt being made to control photos of star Henry Cavil in his Superman suit:
Both photos come from the Facebook community dedicated to snapping photos of the production.
Directed by Zack Snyder, release date: June 14th 2013
I’ve downgraded my interest in “John Carter” as I wait for Disney to really kick into gear and give me a reason to care. Mr. Beaks words at Ain’t It Cool News do not inspire confidence. “Andrew Stanton is a great filmmaker, and an avowed fan of Burrough’s fiction, so I’m struggling to understand why, save for the Woola clip, this movie continues to evince such a strangely dour tone. This is, of course, the awful thing about out-of-context footage presentations: I’m being forced to grade Stanton’s movie against my notion of how a John Carter movie should play. But this is the game Disney loves to play, and right now I’m a little heartbroken by what I’m seeing,” he writes. Hopefully, there’s a good movie hiding in there or I’ll just have to watch “Deathstalker II” again. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya, bracing for the future threat of “John Carter” action figures.
