There’s suffering for your art, and then there’s suffering for your art as a result of your own lack of common sense. 23-year-old Columbus man Sam Vestey was recently shot in the leg by accident while making an amateur Deadpool web series with a couple of friends. Read more after the jump.

One of the men responsible for making the X-Men and Daredevil look super now has a superhero all to himself. Deadline just announced that Tim Miller, who has done special effects work on films such as X-Men, X2, Daredevil, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Night at the Museum and more has been tapped to direct the Deadpool movie, which they refer to as X-Men Origins: Deadpool (requests to Fox to confirm this title have yet to be answered). It’ll star Ryan Reynolds as “the merc with a mouth,” from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Read more after the jump. Read More »
I’ve flown direct from CinemaCon in Las Vegas to WonderCon in San Francisco. The first day presented two interesting panels, one for the Steven Spielberg-produced alien invasion television series Falling Skies and the other for Warner Bros’ big screen comic adaptation Green Lantern.

Marvel illustrator Arthur Suydam is no stranger to homage covers — his Wikipedia page is basically one long list of such covers for the Marvel Zombies series and others. But the ones that really piqued our interest are these tongue-in-cheek covers for Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth, which reference well-known movie posters. The comic series ran for thirteen issues between June 2009 and July 2010, and has since been collected into a hardcover that was released last fall. Check out the covers after the jump.

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 46 (!?!) different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!

We must soon hit some critical mass when it comes to genre mash-ups and goofy nods to classic ideas. Cowboys & Aliens will be an interesting experiment when it arrives in theaters next summer. The title makes the film sound absurd, but from what I’ve seen (a good amount) it looks as if Jon Favreau and his cast and crew have assembled a film that has the potential to go above and beyond a silly “hey, what if cowboys fought aliens?” pitch. But that’s because a post-Iron Man Jon Favreau was able to get a solid script and a wonderful cast. Looks like the exception, not the rule.
So what of Cowboy Ninja Viking? Disney has just put that film into development by hiring Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to write a script based on the Image Comics graphic novel created by AJ Lieberman and Riley Rossmo. More details on that, as well as what Rhett Reese has to say about Zombieland 2 and Deadpool, after the break. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Last year, we posted a 2-minute short film/advertisement called Carousel from a little-known Swedish music video director named Adam Berg. The response to it was wildly enthusiastic, and for good reason: it’s a stunning piece of filmmaking, beautifully capturing a single frozen moment in time as one continuous tracking shot allows a bank heist narrative to unfold.
Is one brilliant commercial spot enough to entrust a man with a major theatrical release? Well, all directors have to start somewhere, and for Adam Berg, Deadpool may just be the project that allows him to break into studio features. Learn more after the break. Read More »
