If that’s not a mo-cap suit, but rather a costume, then the costume designer ought to be executed where he or she stands.
Is Amy Adams too adorable to play Lois Lane?
I think he’d make a good Toyman.
If you build a ‘Superman’ reboot, Kevin Costner will come. Specifically, he’ll come on board as Clark Kent’s dad for Zack Snyder’s ‘Superman: Man of Steel’.
‘Superman’ reboot director Snyder will take a thankfully bizarro approach to Bryan Singer’s action-less version.
Oscar nominee Diane Lane (‘Secretariat’) has been cast in Zack Snyder’s ‘Superman’ reboot, alongside Mr. Britishy Brit winner Henry Cavill as Capeguy himself.
Viggo Mortensen (‘Lord of the Rings’) may play General Zod, the villanous scientist who kindly requests we kneel before him.
Kevin Costner might be moving to Metropolis.
Henry Cavill is super-cool.
With limey bastard Henry Cavill as Supes, the girls up for a big mystery part are Diane Kruger, Rosamund Pike and Alive Eve.
The race for Lois Lane is in full swing. Zack Snyder has his first drop-out and two new contenders.
You’d have to be blind not to see that the very fabric of our society is being torn apart by the outsourcing of our superheroes. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the following list. Then we’ll see who’s the “xenophobic nut bag.”
‘Moon’ helped rocket Duncan Jones to the top of many best director lists. It was only natural that the offers would come rolling in. Including offers that Jones was too plain chicken to accept.
Superman rescues mini Zod. It doesn't matter why.
Yesterday's announcement that Zack Snyder would helm the Christopher Nolan-godfathered Superman sent the movie nerds into an asthmatic tailspin. Inhalers were clutched, man-boobs heaved. Since then, details about the film have been popping up all over.
First up, Variety spoke to Snyder, who says it's unlikely Brandon Routh will reprise his dual role of Superman/Clark Kent from Bryan Singer's film. "We're looking in another direction," was the official comment. "Bitch, is you crazy?," was the non-official comment.
Secondly, The Hollywood Reporter is Hollywood reporting that the villian who will be throwing entire buildings at Superman in the new film will be Superman 2's General Zod. Originally played by Terrence Stamp, but hopefully played by Liam Neeson in this version. Has anyone tried to get him on the phone yet? It's not like he says no to movie roles. The man would hand out flyers in a chicken suit if the price was right.
Superman rescues mini Snyder. It doesn't matter why.
Zack Snyder is the lucky S.O.B. who has landed the directing gig for the Christopher Nolan-produced Superman: The Man of Steel. The Watchman and Sucker Punch director beat out Tony Scott, Jonathan Liebesman, Duncan Jones, Matt Reeves, Darren Aronofsky, Robert Zemeckis, and Nolan's own brother Jonah, who wrote the script. Daaaaaamn, that's cold, Chris. He's your brother. Your brother!
Family squabbles aside, Warner Bros. is a huge fan of Snyder. He's already directed three films for them, if you count the animated owl movie, and has proven he can handle major tent poles. Will Superman look awesome? Almost definitely. Will there be much emotion underneath the gloss and slow motion? We can only hope that Christopher and Jonah Nolan educate him in the way of story. That is if Jonah can quit giving him the raspberry for stealing his gig. (Deadline)
Director Darren Aronofsky is on the list of possible diectors for Christopher Nolan's upcoming Superman project, Heat Vision is reporting. Aronofsky joins a group that already includes Duncan Jones, Tony Scott and Matt Reeves.
But with Aronofsky in the running, there is also talk that another director has been ruled out…
Ben Affleck, who is soaring after The Town became both a critical and commercial hit, and who actually played superman (or at least the man who became known for him, George Reeves) in Hollywoodland, took a meeting about possibly taking the job, but has apparently moved on to other things.
Something tells me that Affleck moving on to other things before hearing back from the producers is a lot like me moving on with my love life before hearing back from Salma Hayek…or those lawyers, of hers. (Empire Online)
'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm is a serious contender for the lead in the planned Superman reboot, Latino Review is reporting. His physique, strong jaw, and slicked black hair make him a natural fit for the character. However, Hamm himself expressed reservations about playing a superhero in a recent interview with MTV.
"It's a tricky road to go down with some of those heroes, because they're not flawed. Superman is Superman – he's invincible, so where's the drama?"
Where's the drama with superheroes? Obviously this guy hasn't seen a little film called Fantastic Four: The Rise Of The Silver Surfer! If he had, he'd understand the ridiculousness of his statement. I hope the producers of the new Superman reboot do a careful vetting before they jump into bed with this guy.
Superman rescues Mini Nolan. It doesn't matter why. Warner Bros. must be supplying Christopher Nolan with an endless supply of whores, drugs, or fish and chips. The director of The Dark Knight and the upcoming WB film Inception has decided to nurture the new Superman movie that's in development and let it suck from the voluptuous teet of his creativity. Nolan is not writing or directing the film, but instead has taken on the role of "godfather," a title I hope appears in the credits. Developing Superman Returns was such a quagmire for WB it's no wonder they're turning to their golden boy for advice, insight, scribbles he wasn't planning on using for future projects. An insider at the studio said, "We know what we don't want to do. But we don't know what we want to do." That sounds like every Friday night conversation I had with my friends in high school. Result: we all decided to stay home, much like the audience will for this film. Shut up, I had friends! Nolan is also actively working on the Batman 3 script with brother Jonathan Nolan and blood brother David Goyer. Nolan came up with a story idea, probably while clipping his nails whilst dropping a deuce, and the team hopes to finish a draft during post-production on Inception. It looks like SJ writer Wookie Johnson has some egg on his face this morning. The proverbial and the scrambled. The former for saying yesterday that Batman 3 scripts rumors were bull hockey, the latter for sticking his face in a plate of scrambled eggs. The man's a barbarian, folks. (Deadline)
Snuggie, everyone's favorite backward bathrobe is at it again. Not only did they invade our summer movies but now they've literally gone to the dogs. They've got some geniuses working over in the Snuggie camp. The pet accessories industry already rakes in 97 kajillion dollars per year. And now a sweet slice of that pie is going to Snuggie. I'm definitely going to invest. Ticker symbol: SNUG. Snuggie for Dogs – As Seen on TV Network – Watch more Funny Videos Warm your pups with these morning links… MTV 2009 VMA Best Breakthrough Videos.
