The Jason Momoa Conan movie is getting closer to release date, and today, thanks to Yahoo! Movies, we get our first look at the barbarian in action… kinda…
Options can be had a dime a dozen, and there’s no guarantee that once a film is optioned that it will be made into a movie. According to Variety, Producer Lionel Wigram has picked up the rights to Jeff Smith’s RASL series.
The title character is a former military scientist who’s become an art thief with the ability to hide out in parallel worlds.
Wigram is the producer of the Sherlock Holmes movies, and he does have experience with comic book to movie adaptations, so here’s hoping RASL gets made, and is a huge success.
The official movie poster for the new Conan the Barbarian movie has been released, and it looks pretty awesome.
Conan the Barbarian stars Jason Momoa and arrives in August.
A brand new trailer for the J. J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg Super 8 movie.
In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.
I thought it felt like E.T. before, but now, this feels like the best parts of all of Spielberg’s films back when he was doing really great stuff. Watch close and you’ll see E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Amazing Stories, and Indiana Jones…
According to Mike Fleming over at Deadline, MGM has tapped Josh Zetumer to write the reboot to the RoboCop franchise. While a lot of positive word has been passed around regarding Zetumer’s work, one can’t help but notice that he writes a lot of big project scripts that then get passed on to someone else. Will this happen again, or will he finally get a break and be credited as the writer for the final draft?

Sad news for Lovecraft fans who were anticipating an awesome take on H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness by Guillermo del Toro. Sadly, the movie will not be, as Universal passed on the project. GdT cites the hard R rating for the canceling of the project. What is really surprising is that Universal thought they could do an adaptation of Lovecraft’s work that is clearly in the hard horror genre.
Del Toro is now moving on to Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim “a PG-13 movie, involving monsters and the creation of a new world.”
“We started developing PAC RIM a while ago with the mad passion and enthusiasm of a project unwatched and unchecked by politics or comparisons. We designed and shepherded the movie we want to make. We start shooting in September and we hit the ground running because we are so in sync. My partnership with Legendary represents, both in scale and creative demands, a huge step forward for me.”
Boo. Boo, I say.

Axel Braun Productions and Vivid Entertainment aren’t stopping with the pron parodies, and the next film is a parody of the horror genre with Scream XXX: A Porn Parody. This tickles my funny bone because Scream was basically a riff itself.
“Given the comedic tone of the original, the movie-within-a movie elements of the sequels, and the upcoming release of the fourth installment, “Scream” seemed like a natural project to put under the parody spotlight,” said Braun.
The film is directed by Eli Cross, and you can take the jump to see the full trailer. Yes, it is safe for work.
