by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2010

Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, Formula 51) has been cast as the villain in the next Spider-Man 3-D reboot.  Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire will not be returning.  No word yet on which villain Rhys will play, but comment with you guesses.


Official Press Release below:


RHYS IFANS JOINS CAST OF NEXT “SPIDER-MAN”

CULVER CITY, Calif., October 11, 2010 – Rhys Ifans will play the villain, opposite Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, in the next installment of Spider-Man from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, it was announced today by Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures. The film, to be directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and produced by Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, will begin production in December and will be released in theatres nationwide in 3D on July 3, 2012.

Commenting on the announcement, Tolmach said, “We have been very fortunate to attract some of the best actors working today to play the villains in the Spider-Man movies, and it is exciting to see that trend continue with Rhys Ifans. After seeing his performance in our upcoming film Anonymous, we’re in awe of his talent and think he’s the perfect choice to take on this role.”

The filmmakers prefer to not reveal which character Ifans will be playing in the forthcoming film.

Webb added, “What sets the Spider-Man villains apart is the complexity of their relationships with Peter Parker. Rhys’ incredible ability to embody both warmth and rage makes him the ideal choice for this character.”

Spider-Man is being overseen at the studio by Tolmach and Rachel O’Connor. Ifans is represented by United Talent Agency, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Independent Talent Group.

**UPDATE**

Jeffrey Sneider from The Wrap is reporting that Rhys Ifans is set to play villain Dr. Curt Connors (The Lizard) in the upcoming Spider-Man flick.  I’m curious how this will play out.  Which story line and angle they will go with.  Rhys is a hell of an actor and I’m sure he will be killer in this role.

PS3 Game “Uncharted” Being Made Into Movie

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2010

Sony Pictures has confirmed that Director David O. Russell (I Heart Huckabees) has signed on to write and direct the movie adaptation to the PS3 game “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune”.


Russ Fischer wrote:


Development of Uncharted isn’t a surprise, as it was explicitly designed in the first place to have the quality of a summer adventure film. The story features Nate Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake. Nate is being shadowed by journalist Elena Fisher as he searches for the coffin of his forefather. When found, the object contains a diary that seems to point to El Dorado, and Nate and Elena are soon involved in a run and gun tale featuring pirates, lost gold and mutant humans.



The Official Sony Press Release:


CULVER CITY, Calif., October 8, 2010 – David O. Russell (Three Kings, The Fighter) has been set to write and direct Columbia Pictures’ Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, an action-adventure based upon the bestselling PS3 game, it was announced today by Doug Belgrad and Matt Tolmach, presidents of Columbia Pictures.  The film will be produced by Avi Arad, Charles Roven, Ari Arad, and Alex Gartner.

The story follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake.

Commenting on the announcement, Tolmach said, “David is a tremendous choice to take on this film.  He’s equally adept at combining all the classic elements involved in this property: great character development, strong comedy, and amazing action sequences. He has a brilliant vision for this material and we know he will bring his original, unique voice to this adaptation.”

The game, developed by the acclaimed team at Naughty Dog, was one of Sony Computer Entertainment’s best-selling and most critically acclaimed games for the PS3.  Named IGN’s Best Action Game and Best PS3 Game, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune sold one million copies in the first 10 weeks of its release at the end of 2007 on its way to moving more than 2.6 (confirm) million copies and spawning a sequel.  That sequel, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, was a major commercial and critical success, winning Game of the Year honors from several influential critics, being named the most critically acclaimed game of the year by Metacritic, and selling more than 3.8 million copies worldwide.  Both games are among the all-time best-selling games for the platform.

The project will be overseen at Columbia Pictures by Tolmach and Jonathan Kadin.


Now I have never played Uncharted before but friends tell me it is one hell of a game.

Hi Bryan Here….

‘Zombieland’ wandered into our hearts two years ago and has proven after each viewing that ‘Zombieland’ is one of the top zombie films ever.  There has been much talk of a sequel at some point down the road, but nothing has been finalized or set in stone, however all the actors want to come back and do a sequel.  Now rumors are circulation that a movie sequel won’t happen. but rather a half hour series of ‘Zombieland’.  Primetime networks should take notice on how well ‘Walking Dead’ is doing over on AMC.
