On creation of a thread titled "ID Software has 'Quake' next to hit Big Screen" Bluebottle replied with some frustration.....

we should start a thread called, "Hollywood has OFFICIALLY run out of ideas" and news like this can go in there.........The fact that they're turning to first person shooters for movie ideas is just sad.

Brocktune also added "if you start that thread, ill be airwolf faster than flumm.

So here it is....bring it on. I suspect with the garbage Hollywood have to offer, AICN members should all reach "AirWolf" status by the end of the year!

The remake of "IT" that Quint mentioned in the book thread.

How many re-makes are in development?!

Variety reports that the WB network has set up a new division to develop and produce original movies, one of which will be a new televersion of Stephen King's IT. Previously turned into a two-part 1990 movie by ABC and director Tommy Lee Wallace, the novel will be adapted this time by Peter Filardi, who scripted the just-aired SALEM'S LOT two-parter for TNT; this IT will reportedly cram King's massive book into a single two-hour movie. Warner Bros. TV will also produce; no other talent or an airdate have been announced."

Or in fact, no talent of any sort will be involved with any of this...

Hollywood just follows trends, they hardly ever start them, when remakes stop making money they will stop making them.

So it goes with the whole "Comic Book" adapted movies I guess hey? How many have there been? And we still have all this to look forward to.......Captain America, The Avengers, Nick Fury, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Cloak & Dagger, Dr. Strange, Hawkeye, Power Pack and Shang-Chi. Each film is expected to have a budget of up to $165 million dollars and a rating no more restrictive than PG-13. Although the financing allows for the production of animated films, Marvel currently intends to use the financing to make only live-action films.


Joy to the world! my brain has fried!

FUCK UP OF THE DAY

Sylvester Stallone will direct and reprise his role as Rocky Balbao in the sixth installment of the boxing franchise, reports Production Weekly.

In the film, lonely and retired boxer Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement, intending to fight a few low-profile local fights just to keep his hand in. But when he's approached to fight a match with reigning heavyweight champ Mason "The Line" Dixon, Rocky's modest little comeback becomes the center of a media firestorm.

Rocky 6 is scheduled to begin filming early December in Los Angeles.

Mason "The Line" Dixon


You can't buy comedy that golden...

This movie should be a preachy tale and he should end up a vegetable. Then in Rocky 7, he can take on the reigning champ in the home for dribbling imbeciles... I smell money...

Ashton Kutcher to replace Tobey McGuire as Spiderman!

That's right - you heard it hear first! :lol:

Speaking of which.....would anyone be upset if they did replace Tobey McGuire? They've done it with Batman, they've done it with Superman, why not change Spiderman? McGuire is a fuckwit anyway.

In the Marvel 616 Universe, Brock was an adult. In Ultimate Spider-Man, he's a college kid (a few years older than Peter). It seems like they might be going for an Ultimate-ish thing with it.
I'd really like to see them play up the aspect of, not just "Venom has Spidey's powers, but he's evil," but that Eddie Brock is just like Peter Parker, only without the influence of Uncle Ben and Aunt May, so when he gains "great power" he says "fuck you" to responsibility.




...what was this thread about again?

Rocky 6 would Rock man! I'll be up for this, no matter how shit it will be. Maybe just for the fun of it. Adrian I read somewhere, was supposed to be dead or something too.

Ashton Krutcher. Stopped, he must be. Was he any good in that time travelling movie that I can' be arsed to remember the name of? Remember when he was sacked from playing Orlando Bloom's part in Elizabethtown? What gets me, is not the fact that he was sacked, but that someone like Cameron Crowe HIRED that fucker in the first place.

I heard somewhere that the prevailing mood in Hollywood at the moment is that the remake thing has been done to death, so in a couple of years' time, I expect that they won't be commissioning remakes anymore.

This move towards original content MUST be good news for all the budding writers out there. I'd say the next 10 months or so is the right time to plug that super-original but low-budget script you have lying around......

the KING KONG remake of a remake is the 800 pound gorilla in the room, right? literally...

From DarkHorizons


My Movies talked recently about the remake of classic '70s street gang flick "The Warriors".

Walter Hill's 1979 film followed a New York posse who must try and get home to Coney Island alive after being framed from the murder of a gang leader, to be untouchable.

"I see it as "Kingdom Of Heaven" meets "The Warriors" because with these gangs, instead of having twenty or thirty guys, I'm going to have three thousand, five thousand guys in the LA river beds and it's going to look like LA during the riots," Tony told us, explaining "I love the original movie, that's why I'm in doing this but I'm not going to copy the original".


So Tony Scott is doing a Warrior remake, why?

I can't answer that question, but has anyone else noticed that a <i>computer game</i> of The Warriors is due out soon?

Warriors was not only one Helluva cool film, but it's the only decent 15 rated film that me and my mates could get out on vid to watch round my house, when we were 11.

We certainly came out to play.

There's an hysterical, probably apocryphal, from the '80s about a rising young writer who manages to get a meeting with a fairly big producer. He's told the producer that his new idea should go huge, because the public is familiar with the background story.

Okay, the producer says, give it to me.

We'll do "The Wiz," says the writer, but white!

Haha! Very cool. I haven't been back in about 15 years. But my mum goes back every 2 years or so to visit her family....and yes, it's very dry. But the place goes off for such a little island. Did you happen to stop off at the island in the middle of Malta and Gozo called Comino? (Pronounced like Star Wars' 'Kamino') On the way there, is something they call "The Blue Lagoon". I have never seen water that colour before. You stick your hand in the water and it would turn blue!
