Gary Whitta unproduced projects

This week, we’ve been running portions of our extensive interview with screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli, After Earth) as a five-part feature we’re calling “/Film’s Week Of Whitta.” Promoting the pre-order of his first novel, Abomination, Whitta talked to us not only about his career thus far, but the future and unproduced projects that haven’t happened.

Today in the fourth part, Gary Whitta talks about the projects he’s worked on that have not made it to the big screen, which include the American live-action Akira movie, an Escape From New York reboot, a big screen adaptation of Blizzard’s popular MMORPG video game World of Warcraft. I also ask Whitta about the rumors that he may be working with Blizzard on a a Diablo or Starcraft project. I always love hearing about the movies that could have been, so for me this segment might be the most interesting. Read the Gary Whitta unproduced projects interview after the jump.

This week’s Parks & Recreation finale proved a worthy sendoff for the show’s main characters. But as we say goodbye to Leslie, Ron, and the rest of the gang, we also wanted to take a look at some of our favorite side characters through the years.

Parks and Recreation has maybe the deepest bench of supporting players this side of The Simpsons — far too many to honor here. So after the jump, we’ve listed our 20 top 20 Parks and Recreation recurring characters, plus our 5 favorite single-episode guest stars. Read More »

Gary Whitta Oliver Twist

To promote the pre-order of his first novel, Abomination, screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli, After Earth) sat down with us for an extensive interview spanning his career thus far. Over the course of this week we will be posting all of the parts of this interview broken up into digestible thematic bites — we’re calling it “/Film’s Week Of Whitta”.

If you missed it, yesterday we ran the first part which featured Gary Whitta talking about growing up with Star Wars, dealing with prequel and special edition disappointment, writing the Star Wars prequel for director Gareth Edwards, and much more.

Today we return with the second installment, with Whitta explaining how he went from being a video game journalist to working as a screenwriter. We learn about his first spec screenplay that got him an agent, a futuristic re-telling of Oliver Twist which never got made into a movie but is now coming out in comic book form. (We have an exclusive look at two pages of the Gary Whitta Oliver Twist comic book.) He talks about writing for video games like Duke Nukem Forever and how that’s different from writing movies. We also learn the screenwriter’s thoughts on sequelitis and the current trend of creating novels and comics as a backdoor way to get “original” stories to the big screen. Read the Gary Whitta screenwriting interview after the jump.

Gary Whitta Star Wars

Screenwriter Gary Whitta (Book of Eli, After Earth) is about to release his first novel, Abomination. To promote the pre-order of the historical fantasy novel, Whitta sat down with us for an extensive interview spanning his career thus far. Over the course of this week we will be posting all of the parts of this interview broken up into digestible thematic bites — we’re calling it “/Film’s Week Of Whitta”.

In the first installment we wanted to cut to the chase and present the meatiest Gary Whitta Star Wars comments. As you know, Whitta wrote for a year on the first Star Wars spin-off film being directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), which will hit theaters on December 16th 2016. We talked to Whitta about growing up with movies, which includes the original Star Wars trilogy. We also discuss the controversy over comments he’s made about the Star Wars prequels and special editions. (I’m not sure how the comments are controversial, considering most everyone I know shares a similar viewpoint.) And, of course, we talk to Gary about working on the upcoming Star Wars spin-off film, and while his Lucasfilm NDA prevents him from revealing any details, its worth reading.
