March 27, 2008 by

    We all know Tobey Maguire from the Spider-man movies, which he had spent a lot of time on. Now Tobey is trying to do a bit of producing. Tobey will be producing movie based on a comic originally published by Red 5 Comics. Afterburn is about a postapocalypic Earth where the Eastern Hemisphere has been devastated by solar flare, which leaves this area abandoned by civilization but inhabited by mutated people and creatures. A group of people from a part of the Earth that has not been devastated, come into this area to recover treasures, such as the Mona Lisa and the Crown Jewels.

This movie sounds like it has a good story and could be a very interesting movie if done right. We don’t know if Tobey Maguire will be in the movie or not but I would not be surprised if he is. Neal Moritz (I am Legend) will be alongside Tobey on this project so it might be good. We’ll keep you posted on this story.

De Luca Speaks About Metal Gear Solid Movie

March 27, 2008 by

   Collider has a huge article featuring producer Mike De Luca talking about adapting video games to movies.  In the article, Mike De Luca talks about how much story there really is in the Metal Gear games and how it does not have to be like other video game movies that are no good.  Here’s what De Luca had to say about Metal Gear Solid.

“For me adapting a video game is just like adapting a book or a play or any other…whenever you’re adapting from another medium for film you try to take into account what you need to do to make it a movie.  With books it’s how you compensate for not being inside a character’s head and with video games I think what you have to compensate for is the loss of interactivity, you know.  What makes video games fun is that you get to be the character and you’re sitting there ruling the universe and it’s a really first person interactive experience.  When you’re in your theatre seat, you’re stuck with these subjective versions of the story and the game from a director or the writer’s point of view.  You can’t interact with what’s going on so whatever turns you on about the game, you’re immediately disadvantaged in the theatre because you’re not feeling anything which I think ups the ante for how good the story has to be and how good the movie has to be because we’re going in at a disadvantage that you’re not going to get the excitement or the adrenalin rush of doing it yourself, so we have to do it for you in a way that makes up for that.”

Tom Cruise Impression From Superhero Movie

March 26, 2008 by

picture-11.png 

To be honest, the only thing I found funny in the commercials for Superhero Movie was that guy acting like Tom Cruise. The actor’s name is Miles Fisher, and I must say that he does an excellent job at portraying Tom Cruise in the film Superhero Movie. He captures Tom’s facial expressions, completely nails his energetic laugh and other worldly gaze. I think it’s funny how these people won’t leave Tom Cruise alone, even though I think he brings it on himself a little. Whatever the case may be, it’s very funny and entertaining in my opinion. Poor Tom Cruise, he just can’t get a break. Well, I think he gets a break in this film, but not the kind of break he is looking for. Judging from what the commercials show, I think Tom learns a thing or two about earth. One of the things he learns about the planet earth, which he clearly is not from, is the law of gravity. Unfortunately, this part of the film is not on the clip that was posted. I guess we have to go see the film to see what happens to good old Tom. Watch the clip below for yourself, and feel free to write how you feel about this post or Tom Cruise, in the comment area. Thanks! CLICK MORE TO WATCH VIDEOS Read the rest of this entry »

    Summit Entertainment has put the sci-fi thriller Countdown into production. Countdown is based on a classic episode of The Twilight Zone titled Death Trip, by Richard Matheson.

    Michael Brandt was chosen to direct Countdown, Countdown being his directorial debut. According to Summit production chief Erik Feig, Michael Brandt was the choice to go with because he outfits larger interest in supporting new talent. Brandt is in the processes of rewriting the screenplay along with Derek Hass, whom both were involved in the films 3:10 to Yuma and 2 Fast 2 Furious, and they also wrote the screenplay to the upcoming adaption Wanted from Universal.

    Death Trip revolves around a group of astronauts who land on a planet only to find a crashed spaceship and corpses that frighteningly resemble their own. They then must piece together where they are and whether they might in fact already be dead.
