neveldine-taylor

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (featured right to left above, respectively) first made a name for themselves in 2006 with their adrenaline-rush of an indie action flick, the low-budget Crank. Three years later, they solidified their reputation as unstoppable forces of pure insanity with its sequel, Crank: High Voltage. Today though, they bring us their first non-Crank-related directorial effort, the Gerard Butler vehicle Gamer, which also co-stars Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall.

I had a chance to chat with Neveldine/Taylor (as they’re so often credited in their films) a couple of months back at Comic-Con, which they were at to promote their latest helping of blood-splattered delirium.

You can read the full exclusive interview with Neveldine and Taylor after the jump.

If there is one thing that this year’s Comic-Con is seriously lacking is a reliable internet connection. With the proliferation of  of tech delaptops and internet enabled phones, the amount of people looking for that connection is growing larger and larger. And at an event like Comic-Con that brings 150,000 geeks together, the bandwidth isn’t available to accommodate the demand. I mention this because the following video blog was recorded on Friday morning, but I’ve only had a chance to upload it overnight.

After the Warner Bros panel, I recorded a video blog with Alex from FirstShowing, Vic from Screenrant, Dave and Eve from Geeks of Doom, and Dan Trachtenberg from the Totally Rad Show even makes a brief appearance. We talk about A Nightmare on Elm Street and Jonah Hex, both of which premiered footage during the panel. Watch the video after the jump.

First Look: Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex

hex_on_set

Our first look at Josh Brolin in his Jonah Hex costume, not to mention make-up, has appeared on the Lainey Gossip blog. The main thrust of their story is some rather un-/Filmy jibber jabber about Brolin’s private life, but they decided to illustrate it with some Jonah Hex paparazzi shots from this last weekend’s shooting. Sample all three of the Brolin images after the jump, and don’t forget that there’s already been some snaps of Megan Fox in her rather… er… overt costume.

Megan Fox Cast in Jonah Hex and Fathom

Megan Fox has been cast in Warner Bros’ adaptation of Jonah Hex and Fox Atomic’s adaptation of Fathom.

Directed by former Pixar animator Jimmy Hayward, Jonah Hex tells the story of a former alcoholic and confederate soldier (played by Josh Brolin) turned supernatural loner and gunslinger. The comic book was introduced in the 1970’s, created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga, the character received his signature scar at the hands of Indians who placed a hot tomahawk to his face. His mother was a prostitute and his dad sold him into slavery. Fox will play Leila, Jonah’s beautiful gun-wielding love interest. John Malkovich plays the film’s villain, a voodoo practitioner who wants to raise an army of undead to liberate the South. The film is scheduled to begin production in April, with an announced release date of August 6th 2010.

And in Fathom, Fox plays a young woman named Aspen who was discovered at sea by a cruise ship, and later learns she is a member of a race of aquatic humanoids who possess the ability to control water. James Cameron was at one point developing a feature film based on the Top Cow comic (which totally makes sense considering the director’s obsession with the ocean), but now the project is being adapted by Jordan Mechner, the creator of the video game Prince of Persia (who also wrote an initial draft of the Jerry Bruckheimer produced film adaptation Sands of Time).

Warner Bros

Warner Bros has announced a bunch of new release dates, including dates for the following films: Green Lantern, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch, Jonah Hex, Christopher Nolan‘s Inception, Clash of the Titans and a new date for Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes. The big shocker is that Warner Bros has decided to go head to head with two of Marvel’s big comic book adaptations. So the question is — will you see the next film from Christopher Nolan or Thor? The final Harry Potter film or The Avengers?
