Show Notes after the Jump!
The comic book series Emo Boy is headed to the big screen via John H. Williams Vanguard Films.Â The movie will be written by the series writer-artist, Stephen Edmond and is being directed by Kyle Newman, of the upcoming Fanboys film.
Emo is a fashion and music style as well as emotional description of someone who is overly sensitive or angst-ridden. Published by Slave Labor Graphics, the satirical comic followed the travails of the most self-dramatizing young man in the history of the world, whose emotions were so intense he even had “emo powers.”
If you need further proof that comic-cons are the place to be, Emo Boy was discovered by Vanguard at CCI: San-Diego.Â I’ve not read the book, but the producer wants to make the film a combo of Napoleon Dynamite, Harold and Maude and Zoolander.
Saw this notice posted, and gotta say I’m extremely pleased with the potential behind this movie.
Fellow Star Wars Fans,
The battle to save Fanboys is over! AND WE WON!
The Weinstein Company has decided to listen to the outcry from Star Wars fans around the globe! They have restored the original plotline and have given the movie back to the Star Wars fans who made it!
The film has been given back to the original director and he is currently editing the final version at Skywalker Ranch! The original cut of the movie will be released in theaters later this year! And there are rumors of a sneak preview of the film happening at the San Diego Comic-Con!
We hereby end our boycott of the Weinstein Company! The studio has earned our respect and gratitude by actually listening to their target audience.
Our thanks go out to everyone who lent their voices to the Stop Darth Weinstein campaign, and to the thousands of fans who took the time to email the studio.
When the original version of Fanboys is released later this year you should all take pride in knowing that you helped make it happen!
When the official release date for Fanboys is announced we will post it here!
May the Force Be With You Always!
& the SDW Squadron
Don’t know what the hell Fanboys is? Take the jump for the trailer.
News spilled around the Interwebs on Friday when it was rumored Dan DiDio may have been given his walking paper from the company.Â Turns out it was actually DC Comics’ senior vice president of business development John Nee that left the company.
In a time when sales are slumping (how could Final Crisis #1 not outsell Secret Invasion #2), fans are upset in the direction the company is going with its heroes (certain Batman and Crisis titles come to mind), and some general fanboy hate towards the company, it’s no wonder people are calling for Dan DiDio’s head.
Nikke Finke from Deadline Hollywood Daily attempts to put it all together.
The problem isn’t justÂ that, under DiDio’s leadership,Â fanboys are disappointed withÂ theÂ directions ofÂ Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and other characters. (How dopey of DiDio to come out with a new series Decisions this SeptemberÂ where the superheroes take political stands timed to the election.)Â Little wonder that fanboys are selling “Dan DiDio Must Die” t-shirts. But alsoÂ average sales of the DCU line are down more than 20% from a year ago,Â andÂ DiDio has lostÂ a big chunk ofÂ existing readers in a year while deliberately failing to reach out toÂ new ones.
Interesting… Dirk Deppy has a better break down of the situation over at his site.Â While I generally agree with most of the arguments people are making across the entire universe, I feel the fault is more in a select group of writer who is forcing his (or her) agenda down the throats of his (or her) editors who don’t have the backbone to stand up to that writer for fear of loosing the company’s golden boy (or girl).Â Then there is that whole advertising thing I mentioned a few months ago that seems to be a slam dunk solution for the company.
What are your thoughts on the whole DC situation, should DiDio stay or go?Â Will all this be swept under the table when The Dark Knight hits theaters and there is a resurgence of interest in the Batman titles?
Regardless, I’m a direhard DC fan, and if you have seen my latest pull list, it looks like it is me that is keeping the company afloat with my huge DC pull list featuring nearly everything DC has to offer.
Two years ago, Fanboys wrapped production, but has yet to see the light of day. Now, thanks to protesting fanboys the film will get a DVD release.
“Fanboys,” about four diehard “Star Wars” fans who break into George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch in order to see “The Phantom Menace” on the eve of its release, wrapped production two years ago and has been stuck in limbo as a tug-of-war between Harvey Weinstein and the filmmakers waged over competing versions of the movie.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Weinstein’s company will release two versions of the DVD; one that features the “cancer line” story, and one that does not.
