Jack Black talks King Kong and Tenacious D film:
School of Rock star Jack Black talked to MTV
about King Kong, Peter Jackson and the Tenacious D movie! Here's a clip:
"There are some funny things about my character but, yeah, it is a different thing for me," Black
revealed backstage at the 2004 MTV Movie Awards. "But I'm not approaching it differently. I'm approaching it with the same balls-to-the-wall attitude."
And there'll be a similar attitude throughout Peter Jackson's "Kong" remake, which Black promised will feature a much fiercer giant gorilla than some of the kinder, gentler versions.
"I just read the script for the first time. It's so rad. And it's top secret. I can't tell you much, but I can tell you this," he teased. "King Kong is going to be scary as hell, dude. He's not gonna be sweet and cuddly. It's not gonna be the cute kind [of movie]. He's a f---ing carnivore, as in, eats flesh!"
Black first encountered Jackson as something of a fanboy himself.
"It was weird because I kind of look like him now, with the beard and the 'baby,' " he said, patting his stomach. "We are kind of the same guy. But it was good to meet him. I was nervous. I'm a huge fan of his and I really wanted to be in 'King Kong.' I hadn't even read it yet, you know? I just met him and said, 'Uh, yeah, I heard you're doing 'King Kong.' So, uh, what do you think, man?' And he was like, 'I'm thinking about you for the role.' And I was like, 'Oh, all right!' "
Black is such a fan that he's likening one of his other projects - the long-discussed movie about his band Tenacious D, which is written and now has an April 1, 2005, start date - to the New Zealand filmmaker's famous trilogy. "It's like the 'Lord of the Rings' of rock. I swear to God it's going to be the best movie ever made. And there are lots of special effects, car chases and stuff - for real."
Blade Trinity trailer!!!:
Here's a first look at the Daywalker's third film Blade: Trinity! The trailer looks cool but it's not in quicktime though,
here's the official synopsis:
"Wesley Snipes returns as the day-walking vampire hunter in the explosive third and final film in the Blade franchise, BLADE: TRINITY. For years, Blade has fought against the vampires in the cover of night, with the world above unaware of the brutal ongoing war. But now, after falling into the crosshairs of the FBI, he is forced out into the daylight, where he is driven to join forces with a clan of human vampire hunters he never knew existed - The Nightstalkers. Together with Abigail (Jessica Biel, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) and Hannibal (Ryan Reynolds), two deftly trained Nightstalkers, Blade follows a trail of blood to the an ancient creature that is also hunting him ... the original vampire, Dracula. BLADE: TRINITY is written and directed by David S. Goyer, who has written all three films in the trilogy, based on characters created in the comic book."
The movie will hit theatres in December. Click here
for the trailer.
Dark Horizons posted some new photos for Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Click on the pic for more.|
This is so darn cool, Quentin Tarantino got paid exactly $1 to film a scene in Sin City. Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller directed the rest of the comic adaptation. Tarantino filmed a scene in the final segment featuring Clive Owen, Benicio Del Toro and Brittany Murphy. Rodriguez did the same for Tarantino, he composed the score for Kill Bill Vol. 2 also for only $1! Source: Variety
Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger) is going to direct The Northman. "It has been my dream for 15 years to make a movie about Vikings," Harlin said, "Being Scandinavian, I have grown up with that folklore and think that this project offers a unique opportunity to tell a compelling story without sacrificing the aspects of beauty and complexity that were so inherent to the ancient Viking society." Sounds great, Renny! Source: Variety

Bruckheimer talks Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3:
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer talked about the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels!
"We made a deal with Gore [Verbinski] to do 2 and 3. We made a deal with [Ted] Elliot and [Terry] Rossio who rewrote the first film. They did an outline for 2 and 3. They're writing number 2 right now and we're negotiating with all the actors.
Johnny [Depp]'s really excited about doing it. You can ask Keira [Knightley]. I think she's excited about doing it and we'd love to have Orlando [Bloom] back. He's told Gore he wants to do it. So it comes down to if you can financially afford them because they've all become bigger stars than they were when we first started three years ago.
The story will continue through the two sequels. It will be continuing, but you'll definitely have an end at the end of two. The story will pick up again in three."
Avi Arad talks Hulk and Thor movies!:
Avi Arad once again gives an update on future Marvel projects! Starting with the Hulk:
Q: Let's talk about coming Marvel movies. In the "Hulk" sequel, will the green guy at least say "Hulk smash!" this time?
A: Of course. I think at the end of the first movie you see this commitment: "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."
And he's coming to terms with who he is. "I've got this curse and I'm going to use it when I need to protect innocent people." And I think in [the sequel] you'll see a man who understands his problem, is trying to solve it, coming to terms with the Bruce side of it, still trying to reject the Hulk, finding a way to reject it, and there are consequences to that, of course. And who knows? Green turns to gray and all hell breaks out.
A: We've literally just started these discussions. If you're a "Thor" follower you'll really love the movie, because we've found a really fine balance between Earth and Asgard. It's so big you have to look at it as a "Lord of the Rings" kind of thing."
Wow, that would be incredible! Click here to find out what Avi Arad had to say about Black Panther.

Starting off with the biggest headline of the week: director McG has left the Superman film!!! All bets are off, back to the drawingboard and start from scratch! Man, I think this is good news, McG wasn't the right man for the job. Let's get James Cameron or Michael Bay! Source: Superman V

Gough & Miller talk Spider-man 2... and Iron Man!!!:
Smallville writer-creators Al Gough and Miles Millar talked to About.com
about their Spider-man 2 script and Iron Man! Here's a clip:
How'd you get hooked up with "Spider-Man 2"?
AL GOUGH: We actually were not part of the first "Spider-Man." They called us when they decided to do the second.
We created "Smallville" and I think they really liked what we were doing on that show and we felt there was a relevance from what we're doing on the show to what they're doing in the movie, which is really focusing on the love story. And that's how Sam [Raimi] sees these movies, they are really a love story between MJ and Peter. So I think sensibility-wise, we sort of had the same vibe. We got together with Sam and Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad, working out the story for "Spider-Man 2," even before the first.
What's up with "Spider-Man 3?" Are you involved in that script?
AL GOUGH: No, "Spider-Man 3" we're not involved in.
MILES MILLAR: We're sort of superhero-ed out.
AL GOUGH: Yeah, we're superhero-ed out at this point. After "Spider-Man 2," we did "Iron Man" for New Line. And then we're in season 4 of "Smallville," so we're done with the superheroes for the time being.
Wait a minute. "Iron Man?" You two wrote that script, what can we expect from that?
MILES MILLAR: A really cool reinvention of the [story]. It's a very [interesting] character to sort of contemporize but I think we've all found a way to do it. It's a very cool action adventure movie.
AL GOUGH: It's actually very relevant given today's times, which is interesting too. I mean, I think that's the neat thing about comic book heroes. It's finding their relevance in today's world, which is something that we try to do with "Smallville" and obviously "Spider-Man" taps into that. We hope "Iron Man" will, as well.
