alexander-skarsgard-tarzan-lead.jpg

Oh please please PLEASE!

Although nothing is confirmed, we hear sexy True Blood vamper Alexander Skarsgard is the lead choice to play the title role in David Yates' Tarzan!

Now, don't confuse ASkars' Tarzan with Kellan Lutz's upcoming portrayal of Tarzan

Apparently the films will be VERY different beasts (in more ways than one!), with Kellan's being more of a light, comedic romp, and Alex's being more

Dr. Who Is Coming To The Big Screen!

doc-who.jpg

We know this show has quite a huge fan following, so we are not going to surprised if this news excites more than a few of you.

Doctor Who fans are getting some pretty exceptional news today. A long awaited big screen adaptation of the hit UK show is finally in the works. The famed series ran from 1963 to 1989, but has since made a comeback due to the rebooted 2005. Apparently, it was a better homage to the original than the new Charlie's Angels was.

Anyway, the GREAT news is that producers at BBC aren't taking any chances with this one. They've called in a heavy-weight director to helm the project, someone who knows all too well about direction a fan-frazed film. David Yates, who has a few Harry Potter movies under his belt, will take on the project, but warns that his team is really going to take its time into transitioning the beloved series to the screen. There will be no half-assing this, but that means it could take awhile.

Well, do you want it fast or do you want it done right?! LOLz! We're sure it will be worth the wait.

A Night Frankenstein At The Museum! Shawn Levy To Direct New Frankie Flick

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterBookz

shawn levy directing frankenstein movie

There are SO many Frankenstein projects in the works, we can't even keep track anymore!

We're not particularly enthused to announce that A Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy has just signed on to direct a new Frankenstein movie for Fox.

Other directors who were in the running included Bourne director Paul Greengrass and Harry Potter director David Yates, but in the end Shawn Levy seemed like he'd make the studio the most money be the best candidate.

Does this mean that you'll no longer be directing Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Shawn???

What do U think? Is the Night at the Museum director the right guy for Frankenstein?

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part I To Be Released In 2D ONLY!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry Potter

harry potter and the deathly hallows part I to be released in 2d only

We cannot express enough how impressed we are with you, Warner Bros!

Warner planned to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I in 3D, but because they couldn't get a quality 3D conversion done by the release date, they've decided to release the film solely in 2D.

Given the fact that Warner was responsible for releasing the poorly executed 3D release of Clash of the Titans, we are ecstatic that they learned their lesson and won't make the same mistake twice! It's refreshing to hear.

Here's the statement Warner Bros released regarding the loss of Harry Potter's 3rd dimension:

Warner Bros Pictures has made the decision to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters, as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey, and to that end, we are releasing our film day-and-date on November 19, 2010 as planned. We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate “Harry Potter” experience.

Producer David Heyman said, “For 10 years, we have worked alongside Alan Horn and the studio, whose priority has always been to preserve the integrity of Jo Rowling’s books as we have adapted them to the screen, and this decision reflects that commitment.”

Director David Yates continued, “This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first.”

As scheduled, on July 15, 2011, we will deliver to conventional and IMAX theaters our final installment of the film franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, in both 2D and 3D formats.

We are proud of U for having integrity, Warner!

How do U feel about the next Harry Potter being released solely in 2D?

Peter Jackson To Direct The Hobbit After All?

Filed under: Film Flickers

wenn5423166pj.jpg

That's what Warner Bros and MGM are hoping for!

Nobody has yet to be officially offered the director's chair for the upcoming film The Hobbit, but the 2 studios are doing everything they can to convince Peter Jackson that he's the man for the job.

But other filmmakers are interested as well including David Yates, David Dobkin and Brett Ratner.

Inneresting — but we think this project has Jackson's name written all over it!

What do U think?

Potter Spoilers!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterTech Talk

Finally, some answers!

For those of you who are curious to know how the young Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows actors will be aged twenty years for the film's adaptation of the love-it-or-hate-it series epilogue, Tom Felton, who appears in the scene as the nefarious Draco Malfoy, was kind enough to spill some info!

He's confirmed that Director David Yates is not just relying on aging the actors with CQI, they'll be using prosthetics as well!

Says Tom:

"For nearly two months, we've all been doing prosthetic tests and all sorts of preparation for the epilogue. I've been having some aging training. You've got to walk differently. There's a slump in your walk. It's going to be the last big thing that we do. It's going to be on location. It's bizarre. We have a lovely guy who comes in. It was a little weird the first time — imagine you've got weights on your arms! There have been a number of times where I nearly laughed and I had to hold it in. We're probably at the most exciting bit. Certainly the part I've been most looking forward to. It's going to be very exciting."

Inneresting!

We're glad they're taking the time to work with the teens - readers of the series were pretty split in half on the cheese factor at the end of the last book, so it's nice to know that they're committed to make the actors look and appear as legit as possible!

Otherwise, the entire sequence would definitely look RIDICULOUS!

What do U think?? Will they successfully pull off aging the cast??
