Alex Kurtzman directing Mummy

But recently he was announced as part of the team creating an “extended universe” of interconnected new films featuring Universal Monsters such as Dracula, the Wolfman, and the Mummy.

Jamie Foxx Mike Tyson

It is inevitable that Mike Tyson would punch his way to the big screen. Too bad the delivery method won’t be a film based on Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out (hey, it could happen) but a standard biopic will probably draw a crowd, too. Now just such a project is under way, and Jamie Foxx is set to play Tyson. The movie is in early stages of development; there’s not even a script. But Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire, The Wolf of Wall Street) is set to script. And because Foxx’s manager Rick Yorn is producing the film, we can expect that Foxx will stick around through the development process. Read More »

Brian Cox movie novelizations

Does anyone read movie novelizations any longer? Before the Internet, before DVD and all the myriad other ways we consume movie stories, film novelizations were the quickest way to take a film home. Many featured extended characterizations and new scenes and concepts, some drawn from the original screenplays, some invented by the authors. At 10 years old, I loved the Poltergeist novelization as it featured scenes with Carole Anne wandering around in the realm of the Beast.

Here, Funny or Die both honors and (mostly) skewers the movie novelization in The Novelizationalist. The short film features Brian Cox as an author who specializes in the unique alchemy that joins film and the printed page. The novelizations for Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T., written by Cox’s character, capture each film’s magic with shocking clarity. Read More »
