No sale, Opie.
They make a cute couple.
Richie Cunningham just started a sh*t list.
I think Will Smith or Nick Cannon should play the black guy and Steve Carell or Ben Stiller should play the white guy.
Javier Bardem’s psychological commitment to the film is being called into question.
It’s all about the Benjamins.
Anybody wanna buy a gigantic, cross-platform adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Dark Tower’? I know a bunch of guys looking to sell.
Mark Verheiden has penned everything from “Battlestar Galactica” to Superman comics. He’ll be teaming with Akiva Goldsman on the NBC series that’s just one part of a big, giant thing.
Bardem is in final talks to join the adaptation of Stephen King’s book series, which will include three movies and two TV mini-series. Okay, but will there also be a web series and a couple Nintendo 3DS games?
Despite a charming updo, Brian Grazer hasn’t been able to convince Javier Bardem to dress up like a cowboy just yet.
Mark Helprin 1983 novel ‘Winter’s Tale’ is about a thief and a flying horse, which incidentally would be a pretty badass getaway vehicle for a thief.
Prepare yourselves to see Javier Bardem with a really cool scar or a cat on his lap or something. The ‘Biutiful’ Oscar nominee has been offered a role opposite Daniel Craig in ‘Bond 23.’
Ron Howard choosing Oscar-winning Spanish actor Javier Bardem over Christian Bale for his latest project was not the result of a creepy coin toss.
Just because Ron Howard wants you to do something doesn’t mean you have to do it.
Ron Howard appeared on Howard Stern yesterday and was very forthcoming with details about his upcoming 6-hour miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s epic series The Dark Tower, including casting ideas and platform specifics.
Ron Howard might be biting off more than he can chew. The best ginger director working in the business today is teaming up with screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to adapt Stephen King's beloved novel series The Dark Tower into a feature film and television series. He's going to direct everything himself, battle all the haters who say it can't be done, and stave off a nervous breakdown in the process. Ronnie, you be crazy! Deadline has the deets:
The plan is to start with the feature film, and then create a bridge to the second feature with a season of TV episodes. That means the feature cast—and the big star who’ll play Deschain—also has to appear in the TV series before returning to the second film. After that sequel is done, the TV series picks up again, this time focusing on Deschain as a young gunslinger. Those storylines will be informed by a prequel comic book series that King was heavily involved in plotting. The third film would pick up the mature Deshain as he completes his journey. They will benefit from being able to use the same sets cast and crew for the movie and TV, which could help contain costs on what will be a financially ambitious undertaking.
Peter Jackson is sh*tting in his britches right now. I remember when his back-to-back-to-back Lord of the Rings Trilogy was an unprecedented cinematic feat. If Howard's plan comes together it'll put the whole thing to shame. Thanks Jackson, but we don't need your contributions to film anymore. Ronnie's got the medium on lockdown.
Akiva Goldsman (Left) and Ron Howard (Right) on the set of Inspector Gadget 2.Screenwriter Akiva Goldsman is putting down his pen and picking up his wand, or whatever instrument directors use while directing. The Oscar-winning writer is slated to make his directorial debut with the 20th Century Fox drama, Man and Wife. The film follows an assassin who falls in love with the woman he is supposed to kill. In most relationships, a man falls in love with a woman and then ends up wanting to kill her, but this film turns that convention on its head. Brilliant!You have to hand it to Goldsman, especially considering he wrote Lost in Space and Batman and Robin. A lesser man (like myself) or a traditional Japanese samurai would have committed ritual suicide after penning such awful scripts. But Goldsman kept at it and went on to do great things. Aside from trying his hand at directing, he is also producing the upcoming Jonah Hex film and is slated to adapt Stephen King's The Dark Tower for director Ron Howard. (Deadline)
Those who have tackled their own home-made adaptations of Stephen King's The Dark Tower are about to be upstaged twice over. Universal is in talks to condense the seven books by the creepy author (I said it) into a film trilogy directed by Ron Howard. Not only that, but they'll also produce a far crappier television version for shut-ins and Nielsen families.I'm not really sure how the story of the last gunslinger Roland Deschain will divide across film and television wthout confusing the chronology, and thinking about it has given me another one of my murder headaches. Well, time to chain myself up for the night again I suppose. (Deadline)
