October 9, 2007


Jake Gyllenhaal will team with director Doug Liman (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, upcoming Jumper) for DreamWorks' "Untitled Moon Project."

The action film revolves around a private expedition to the moon and the race for lunar colonization.

The screenplay was originally written by Liman and John Hamburg. Author-screenwriter Mark Bowden (Black Hawk Down) did a complete reconception of the story and will pen the screenplay.

The project marks the return of Alli Shearmur, former Paramount co-president of production, who ankled the studio earlier this year. She will produce alongside Simon Kinberg and Liman

"LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The latest Indiana Jones adventure is the most anticipated movie scheduled for release in the next year, according to a poll of U.S. moviegoers.

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," the fourth movie in Steven Spielberg's adventure franchise, topped the survey conducted by MovieTickets.com, followed by the next Batman movie, "The Dark Knight."

The poll involved asking more than 2,000 moviegoers to rank their interest level in a list of movies from 1 to 5.

The top 10 also included several others based on existing film franchises, such as the "Chronicles of Narnia," comic books or old TV shows. Only two originals films -- "American Gangster" and "I Am Legend" -- made it into the top 10.

"The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," starring Harrison Ford as adventurer Indiana Jones, will be released worldwide in May 2008, nearly 20 years after Steven Spielberg and George Lucas last brought the heroic archaeologist to the big screen in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade."

Men and women alike ranked the Indiana Jones movie as their most anticipated film, and included "The Dark Knight (Batman Begins 2)," "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," and "American Gangster" in their top 5 films.

Based on the results, the top 20 films are listed below:

1. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

2. The Dark Knight (Batman Begins 2)

3. National Treasure: Book of Secrets

4. American Gangster

5. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Yea the more I hear about Speed Racer the more excited I get. Since they are trying some new techniques im very interested. Someone here can probably help me remember this better but aren't they shooting for an ultra-high clear movie with very expensive cameras? I think that's really cool. And the cast is awesome. I want to see Iron Man and Indiana and those movies. But I am definitely anticipating Speed Racer the most.

I kinda liked it, in spite of how stupid it was.

Every time I see the ending, I laugh though.

When Nicolas Cage touches his torch to the oil in the treasure room, causing it to flame up and illuminate the whole thing - well, it's an impressive visual, but I half expected the others to say "Oh, great. Now you've set fire to the whole goddam treasure!" 'Cause he almost did!

Citizen Kane Oscar under hammer

The only Oscar won for Orson Welles' iconic 1941 film Citizen Kane is to be auctioned and is estimated to fetch $800,000 (£393,000) to $1.2m (0.5m).

The Oscar was for best original screenplay and was given jointly to Welles and Herman J Mankiewicz.

Sotheby's auction house in New York said it will auction off the statuette on 11 December.

Many critics regard Citizen Kane, about a power-hungry newspaper baron, as one of the best films ever made.

Leila Dunbar, senior vice president at Sotheby's, said the prestige of the film added to the statuette's value.

Held in secret

"The movie had a star-studded cast," she said. "Welles was fearless in the filmmaking and he had complete autonomy, all of which helped him create a landmark movie."

The Oscar was believed to have been lost until it appeared at a 1994 Sotheby's auction.

A Los Angeles cinematographer had held it in secret, after being given it by Welles as payment for working with him.

Welles' youngest daughter, Beatrice, claimed the Oscar for herself after suing Sotheby's and the cinematographer.

Oscar sales

But when she tried to sell it, the academy tried unsuccessfully to sue her as part of its longstanding goal of keeping Oscars out of commercial markets.

Since 1950, the academy has required Oscar-winners to give it the first right of refusal to buy back an Oscar for $1.

In 2003, Welles sold the Oscar to the Dax Foundation, an LA-based non-profit group that supports various educational, health and other causes. It is being auctioned by Dax.

In 1999, the best picture Oscar for Gone With the Wind fetched more than $1.5m and Vivien Leigh's best actress statuette for the same movie made more than $550,000.


The very few times something like an Oscar goes up for sale, I wish that I had The Dino's money. I would pay anything for the Citizen Kane Oscar.

BUMPING because it hasn't been OFFICIALLY mentioned here-

Beckett Anime Collector (Which is sadly no longer being published, but it's still recent) reported that Warner Brothers IS interested in making a US version of "Death Note". The star of the Jp. one, Tatsuya Fujiwara, however, wants it to have the entire cast from the original. Um, NO. I'm guessing it's going to have Jesse McCartney as Right and Cillian Murphy as L with Ashley Tisdale as Misa and the voice of James Woods as Ryuuku...

"Bourne Ultimatum" leads People's Choice nominees

Thu Nov 8, 9:24 PM ET

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "The Bourne Ultimatum" led the nominations for the People's Choice Awards, an annual event with a dizzying array of categories voted on by the American public, organizers said on Thursday.


The spy thriller was nominated for favorite movie, favorite action movie and favorite threequel. Its star, Matt Damon, was also cited for favorite male action star.

Other multiple nominees included "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" and "Transformers," both of which will compete against "The Bourne Ultimatum" for favorite movie.

Bruce Willis and Johnny Depp will compete with Damon for favorite male action star. Willis and Depp will also vie for favorite male movie star with Denzel Washington.

Jessica Alba also received two nominations, for favorite leading lady and favorite female action star.

Winners in all 38 categories, split among film, TV and music, will be announced during a ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on January 8.

This year's show, televised by CBS, drew 11.3 million viewers, up a little from 2006, but far below its 1977 heyday of 35 million.

MySPACE AUDITIONS SECURE FILM ROLES

Ten unknowns have landed film roles alongside Hollywood star Simon Pegg after auditioning on MySpace.
Faintheart, billed as a romantic comedy set in the world of battle re-enactments, is due to hit cinema screens next summer.

Film fans on MySpace selected the movie's director and several of the actors after producers asked people to audition online.

Faintheart tells the story of Richard, a sales assistant, who spends his weekends as a Mighty Norse Warrior in battle re-enactments.

Sick of living in the Middle Ages, Richard's long-suffering wife Cath throws him out, leading him to an epic quest to win her back.

Alongside Mission Impossible and Shaun of the Dead star Pegg, the cast features Auf Wiedersehen Pet's Tim Healy, EastEnders turned Bridget Jones actor Paul Nicholls, The Mother actress Anne Reid, and Spaced star Jessica Hynes (formerly Stevenson).

The unknowns include a York university student - Phil Lester, 20, who is studying for a BA in English language, and a single parent, Rosalyn Scanlon, 31, from Coventry.

An aerospace engineer, Peter Holyoake, 38, from Leicester, won the role of a Viking extra as he has already had plenty of practice with his hobby - taking part in Viking re-enactments around the country.

The £1 million movie, being described as the UK's first "user-generated feature film", is backed by Film4 and the UK Film Council.

Director Vito Rocco was plucked for the role by 500,000 MySpace users who viewed the short film he submitted online. He said: "We've given cinema-goers and online users the first real opportunity to be part of the film-making process right the way through from script to seeing the results of their input up on the big screen."
