If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

I apologize in advance if this causes you anger.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Discusses The Potential Of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman

We were surprised, but also kind of intrigued, when Joseph Gordon-Levitt announced he’d be working with David Goyer to bring Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman to the big screen. But that was pretty much where we left it. Thankfully, someone thought to press Gordon-Levitt for a few details.

NBC Developing Constantine Series With Nolan Trilogy Scribe

The number of DC universe set shows that are coming to a television screen near you is increasing rapidly these days. The Flash is speedily spinning off of Arrow, Gotham, the Batman show without Batman, was announced yesterday, and now a series based on Hellblazer, the long running Vertigo title featuring the trials of John Constantine, is in development at NBC.


Oh Hollywood

The Asteroids Movie Will Be “More of a Space Opera,” Not the Disaster Movie Expected

The  Asteroids Movie that has been in the works for several years now, jumping from writer to writer, but firmly under the production of Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, appears to have a basic description now. Hollywood was able to inject something beyond exploding asteroids into the Atari game that revolves around the simple objective of shooting asteroids, even when di Bonaventura himself admitted that plot-wise, “there’s nothing to the game.”  What’s more, the film may not be the massive piece of destruction that was expected.

Cautiously Optimistic

The Y: The Last Man Movie is As “Close As It’s Ever Been”

“We’ve got a script that’s as close as it’s ever been…That could go into production next year…The first movie is meant to function as a standalone, but hopefully continue. Hopefully there will be others.”- Screenwriter David Goyer on adapting Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s 60 issue comic Y: The Last Man into a film.

Goyer discussed his writing of the Y: The Last Man script in the context of his work on Man of Steel.  Y:The Last Man tells the story of Yorick Brown, the last man on earth, as the title would suggest, after the rest of the men mysteriously die off.  If this Eisner award winning series does get adapted to the screen, we could see an awesome story told on the big screen, and potentially many interesting roles for actresses.  Not only is the idea of a first movie extremely exciting for fans of  Yorick and his story, but Goyer gives us even more reason to be excited, implying that at least he has interest in more than one movie based on the comic series.  Of course, we have to see the first movie get made, and do well, before we can hope for a second, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. We previously saw this project get a director, Dan Trachtenberg.
