    BRAVE Director Mark Andrews Looks Back At JOHN CARTER And Expresses Interest In Sequels

    John Carter divided critics and failed to make a significant impact at the box office, but what does Brave director Mark Andrews make of this? After all, he did play a role in the early brainstorming stages of when the film was conceived (which he describes as, "a crazy experience") and told The Playlist recently that he believes most of the blame lies with Disney. "I was in denial for quite a bit and the studio pulled the plug on it a little prematurely and I think there were some mistakes in marketing. It was like 'Give it a chance! This thing is struggling to find itself! Hold on a little longer!' I think, ultimately, what's really interesting now is that it's the #1 pirated movie of all time. I think all the bad press has given it this mystique." Well, that's certainly one way of looking at it!

    As for a sequel to the film, Andrews remains optimistic that he and director Andrew Stanton will re-team to work on a follow-up despite the fact that many have declared the film one of the biggest box office flops of all-time. "It's going to get its legs back and me and Andrew aren't done with that story yet and we really want to do two and three. There's some great stuff for John Carter as a hero to deal with in the future. We're ready to go. As soon as somebody from Disney says, 'We want 'John Carter 2,'' we'd be right there." He also tells the site that Michael Chabon would be brought back to co-write any future films, although with the mixed critical response to Brave, only time will tell whether Andrews will also be involved with any of Disney's future projects

    Aldis Hodge Wants To Lead Marvel's BLACK PANTHER

    Since news broke that Marvel Studios' 2014 Captain America sequel may be followed by a big-screen adaptation of The Black Panther, potential T'Challa contenders have been modestly campaigning for the King of Wakanda. Via Examiner, the latest is actor Aldis Hodge. When asked if he favored a comic book series, Hodge replied:

    "Growing up I was a fan of Black Panther and X-Men comic books. I was also a huge Batman fan. There’s recently been a little buzz online about Marvel pushing for Black Panther, and I’ve been in love with the idea for years. I want the fans to know that the one role I really want to play is Black Panther. I grew up loving the Marvel world, and grew up on martial arts. I still train. When Black Panther came around, he was almost like an African American Batman."

    Aldis Hodge, 25, is best known for his Alec Hardison role on the TNT Leverage TV series, which landed him a Saturn Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in Television. He has also appeared in Supernatural among many shows. And he currently has two films, The East and Lives of the Saints, in production.

    Anthony Mackie Interested In BLACK PANTHER Role

    "I was hoping I would be the Incredible Hulk, but that didn't work out," Mackie replied, laughing. "I would love to be a part of it. I love Black Panther and I love the story behind it. It would be cool to be a part of it."

    UPDATE: In a separate interview with The Daily Beast, Anthony Mackie further expressed interest in the role of T'Challa, in addition to a potential, and suspected, direction the film could head.

    If Black Panther is made into a movie, I would love for it to be along the lines of Batman. It has to be an adult action hero. I would love to be a part of it, though, and I would sign on to it today.

    Anthony Mackie, 32, is personally one of my top 5 casting choices for T'Challa. Although the majority of his filmography doesn't exactly deem him fit for the role, hes dealt with action in The Hurt Locker. Anyhow, he's currently filming Pain and Gain with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson & Mark Wahlberg. What do you think?




    Created by writer-editor Stan Lee & penciller-co-plotter Jack Kirby, “The Black Panther” (T'Challa) first appeared in “Fantastic Four #52,” and is the first black superhero in mainstream American comics. Back in January of 2011, Hollywood trades revealed that documentary writer Mark Bailey (“Ghosts of Abu Ghraib”) was hired to pen a live-action screenplay focused on the Wakandan king, for Marvel Studios. And recent claims indicate that “The Black Panther” adaptation could officiate Walt Disney Pictures' currently-untitled June 27, 2014 release date.

    Say What? FLASH GORDON Star Now A Bodyguard In Mexico

    What’s it like doing security work in Mexico right now? It seems a little scary at the moment.

    It can be for somebody who’s not paying attention, who’s not using common sense. It could be very scary. It’s all perception. Don’t present yourself as a soft target. When we’re in these environments where it’s the real deal, we are traveling hard. We’re in armored vehicles. They look like normal sedans or SUVs, but they are armored. And we’re traveling hard and we’re traveling fast. With that said, most of the time we’re traveling low profile. We’re not putting up red flags. There are times when we have some dignitaries when we have to travel in a huge motorcade with weapons out the windows and stuff like that. But usually we stay under the radar. In other words, we don’t give the bad guys any opportunity. They’re watching us. We’re not stupid. They’re assessing, saying, “Well let me see, if I decide to hit this motorcade or this convoy, what are my percentages of success?” When they look at us and they know our training, they can only come up with one conclusion: it’s going to be a 20 to 30 to 40 percent chance, if that. So they’re not going to mess with us. And that’s not a macho statement. It’s just in the training. It’s just how we present ourselves.

    What might you see that would make you turn around?

    Okay, we’re at a major intersection in Tijuana and you look around at your situational awareness and you see the taco stand, everybody is doing their behavior that they’re supposed to be doing. You’ve got a couple next to you in a car who are kissing, a couple on your left who are arguing, you have people crossing the street, normal behavior. Why is there a pickup truck parked with two people in it and they’re not talking, their heads are not moving, and why are there a couple of SUVs across the street not moving? Well, I don’t know. But I’m not going to continue. I’m going to turn around. In other words, bad guys are usually bad actors. Seriously. They don’t know how to commit to the character that they’re doing.

    Have clients ever recognized you from your acting?

    They figure out after a while, but I separate the security industry from the film industry. When they find out that I was Flash Gordon and in the film business for years, that’s okay once I’ve already proven myself as a security professional. But when I start a project and people say, “Wait a minute, time out: you’re saying that we have a former superhero and/or actor in the movie business who’s protecting the lives of my family and me? Something’s wrong here.” [Laughs] I had a big, big successful executive at a major [movie] studio. I had been protecting him for about a year. Then he put it together. He said, “Oh my God, I know exactly who you are. I trust you with my life! Thank God I knew you as a security professional before I found out you were Flash Gordon.”

    Viggo Mortensen Offered Lead In THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER

    last we heard, Dog Soldiers director Neil Marshall was attached to helm The last Voyage Of The Demeter - the story of the doomed the ship that carried Dracula’s coffin from Transylvania to England - for Millennium Films. Sir Ben Kingsley and Noomi Rapace were also said to be on board as the ship's captain and a stowaway named Anna Billington, but nothing was ever officially confirmed.



    Now Bloody Disgusting report that both actors "may" still be attached, and that Viggo Mortenson has been offered the lead role of Henry Clemens. The site also reporst that the latest script draft by Lowell Cauffiel will "place the voyage center stage in a tale that is reminiscent of the first movie in the Alien franchise, in which a crew is slaughtered one-by-one by a mysterious passenger."

    If that cast comes together, I would definitely be very interested to see this one. Vampire stories are a dime a dozen these days, and there are another 2 or 3 Dracula themed flicks either in production or at the planning stages as it is, but this sounds like it could be an original take on things.

    Noooo!

    Ryan Reynolds Officially Cast As The HIGHLANDER

    A while ago we heard that Lionsgate were after Ryan Reynolds to play the lead role in their planned remake/reboot of Highlander. Back then word was that the actor was the front-runner and both parties were keen to work together, but that it was still in the negotiation stages and he was free to pursue other projects. Well, according to The Tracking Board..

    After roughly a month of negotiations, Ryan Reynolds has officially been cast in the lead role for HIGHLANDER. Reynolds will play Conner MacLeod, a Highlander who discovers he is one of a dwindling group of immortals who wander the earth and kill each other in combat for the final “Prize”

    STARSHIP TROOPERS Reboot To Be Less Violent According To Producer Toby Jaffe

    "The more expensive a film is, the harder it is now to make it that violent," explains Jaffe, also one of the team behind the Colin Farrell's Total Recall. "With Recall in particular, we made a conscious choice to keep it tonally closer to something like Minority Report. It gives the studio, and us as producers, the opportunity to reintroduce it in a new way."


    "Verhoeven made his movie a critique of fascism," says Jaffe, "whereas Heinlein was writing from the perspective of someone who had served in World War II. Y'know, one man's fascism is another man's patriotism..."


    "Working in a visual-efects renaissance as we are, we have the ability to do so much more now. We can do the Jump Suits [armoured exoskeletons from Heinlein's novel], for example, which I don't think they could have done before."

    New BEAUTY & THE BEAST Extended Trailer Featuring SMALLVILLE's Kristen Kreuk

    On Thursdays this Fall the CW network will unleash one of it's best comedies in years! Check out the hilarious extended trailer for their new show Beauty & The Beast. The show has made the marvelous decision to make their Beast not look like a beast. Clearly the Disney and Ron Perlman versions of the tale got it completely wrong. On top of that they have an adorable actress that is 5 foot 3 inches small kicking the ever living snot out of full grown thugs. Awesome! I'm telling you CW hasn't had a comedy this good since Aliens in America! I can't understand why CW consistently finishes in sixth place in total viewers? It's a mystery!

    http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansit.../news/?a=62453

    A new viral site called ProjectPrometheus.com has launched and takes fans to a "Careers" page featuring three new viral videos from Weyland Corporation employees. Only the video below (featuring Jamie Rossi, a "nanotechnologist") is currently available, although the next two are sure to follow soon after. However, the most interesting part is that fact that the end of the video reveals the URL, ProjectPrometheus.com/SDCC. There's nothing there just yet, but as any self respecting comic book fan should know, "SDCC" stands for the San Diego Comic Con (taking place next month). Looks like the story of Prometheus is far from over...

    Matt Damon to Return to ‘Bourne’ Franchise? | XFINITY Movie Blog by Comcast

    Damon and Renner to Team Up in Fifth Bourne Movie?


    Empire talked to The Bourne Legacy director/co-writer Tony Gilroy, producer Frank Marshall and star Jeremy Renner.

    Renner told the magazine that his character, Aaron Cross, is "coming from a completely different background to Jason [Bourne]. He knows exactly who he is; he signed up to this...He wants to be part of a team. I can tell you he was in the military then he joined the [program]. He's a person who wants to be part of something... to have a sense of purpose. But then it's taken away."

    Marshall, however, dropped the more interesting bit: "You see there are several different [programs] in the movie with different skill sets. All possibilities are open. My dream is that in the next one we see Matt and Jeremy team up."

    That would be quite something. The action thriller, also starring Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Albert Finney, Joan Allen, Scott Glenn, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, opens in theaters on August 10
