‘Tron 3′ Dead at Disney

Tron 3 Dead

Tron 3 just got de-rezzed.

Over the past few months there has been a lot of buzz about Tron 3 (maybe called Tron: Ascension) shooting in Vancouver beginning in October. And while Disney has been very slow to confirm anything, all reports positioned the film as a direct continuation of Tron Legacy, with Joseph Kosinski returning to direct, and Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund reprising their roles. But now Tron 3 is dead at Disney.  Read More »

Wicked and the Divine TV series

Now I feel dumb about not yet making time to read comic book series The Wicked + The Divine from Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson, because I can’t give you the inside line on why this might be great news. The Eisner-nominated series has been a favorite of many friends and colleagues since it debuted last summer, based on the creators’ take on gods as pop stars, and the concept and story alone seem like great material for comics.

Now the company founded by Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick — each also an oft-praised comic book writer, thanks to runs on Hawkeye, Sex Criminals, Pretty Deadly, and Captain Marvel, among others — will produce the TV series. Read More »

Henchmen

‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ Goes to TV

Talented Mr. Ripley TV series

The Ripley character created by Patricia Highsmith has been the center of many films. The best-known now is probably The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by Anthony Minghella with Matt Damon (above) in the lead role. And Rene Clement’s Purple Noon is a standout that should be better known. There are actually five films all told, with five different actors in the lead. (Which is kind of appropriate in its own way.)

Now producers plan to mine Highsmith’s novels once more, this time for a Talented Mr. Ripley TV series. (There’s no affiliation with the Matt Damon film; we’ve used that image as a convenient reference point.) Read More »

Catherine Hardwicke love letters to the dead movie

Chances are you may not know what Love Letters to the Dead is, but odds are you’re going to love the idea. The book, written by Ava Dellaira, is about a young girl who is given an assignment to write a letter to someone dead. She chooses Kurt Cobain and, in the process, becomes fascinated with how open she can be to these famous people. That leads her to a series of personal discoveries through letters she writes to dead celebrities like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart and Heath Ledger. It’s a best seller and now, it’s getting an A-List filmmaker to take it to the big screen.

Catherine Hardwicke – the director of Twilight and Thirteen –  is now attached to direct Love Letters to the Dead from a screenplay by Dellairia herself and released by Fox 2000. It’ll be produced by the team behind Twilight, The Maze Runner and The Fault in our Stars. Read more about the Love Letters to the Dead movie below. Read More »
