As Spike Lee’s take on Oldboy draws near, the teaser images on the things Joe Doucett missed are starting to appear on the Internetz…
FilmDistrict sent us a new featurette for Oldboy where the actors talk about the revenge flick.
Spike Lee’s remake of the 2003 movie Oldboy arrives on November 27, 2013. Mr. Lee sat down to talk about Sam Jackson, and we’ve got the video of hairstyles and wardrobe, after the jump.
Spike Lee’s Americanized remake of Oldboy comes to theaters this December. The film itself is still in shooting and has released a few more photos from the set, so take the jump for a look at the dark film.
The Warner Bros. Panel wrapped up a little while ago, and here’s our Rapid-Fire Roundup of the talking points.Â The oddest part of these kinds of panels is there isn’t a whole lot of talking going on so much as it’s a chance for the studio to get its wares in front of fans.Â There were some surprise guests, and yes, Megan Fox was there.
There’s also something about a Batman 3 movie or something…
It’s Wednesday, which means another roundup of rumors out of Tinsel Town.Â This week it’s all about Transformers, Iron Man, and Megan Fox.Â She’s a new Hollywood category now, right?
Spoiler TV looks to have nabbed the first images of Josh Brolin in his complete Jonah Hex getup.Â The look works, but it isn’t the turn away in horror reaction that we see in the comics.
Head over to the site for the full image, plus one.
Yes, the Friday link baiting worked, as more people continue to discover Major Spoilers through their non-stop searching for all things Megan Fox.Â Since we really need to keep this exploitation on topic (just like we did on Friday, right?), here’s a peek of Megan Fox on the set of Jonah Hex.Â Granted we don’t know what she’s wearing under that bath robe, the saloon girl boots, garter, and choker, should give you some idea.Â Fox plays Leila, a love interest for Josh Brolin’s Hex.
More photos over at I Don’t Like You In That Way.
Oscar nominees Michael Shannon and Will Arnett have both signed up to appear in Warner Bros. adaptation of DC Comics’ Jonah Hex big screen feature.
Arnett will play a Union soldier who enlists Hex and is blindsided by the dirty fighting style of his enemies. The role is not inherently comic.
Shannon plays Doc Cross Williams, the bizarre ringleader of a brutal gladiator circus event. The character might appear in sequels.
Sequels already?Â I know studios plan for three movie deals when starting any new property, but in recent years, the western has not been a big box office draw.Â That being said, Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, and the ever so popular Megan Fox thrown into the mix could guarantee success before the film opens.
Jonah Hex starts production this month (April) in Lousiana.
The Hollywood Reporter has Transformers hottie Megan Fox signing up to co-star in two additional comic book adaptations.Â First up is Jonah Hex, where she’ll star opposite Josh Brolin in the DC western.
In “Hex,” being directed by Jimmy Hayward, Fox will play Leila, a gun-wielding beauty and love interest of Hex (Brolin), a scarred bounty hunter tracking a voodoo practitioner (Malkovich) who wants to raise an army of undead to liberate the South.
Then there is the continuing talk of Fox playing the title character in Aspen Comics’ Fathom, created by Michael Turner.Â Fox certainly has the build to play the aquatic hero, and considering she is helping to develop the property for film it sounds like her heart is in to this one.
Well there’s no stopping the movie machine now.Â Warner Bros has announced release dates for its Green Lantern and Jonah Hex movies.Â Green Lantern is expected to arrive in theaters on December 17, 2010, just in time for the holiday season.Â WB made the wise decision ot move the date toward the end of the year, as the summer mega movie season is already packed with Iron Man 2, Thor, and The Green Hornet (providing Gondry gets nailed down as director) .
What competition will GL face in its opening weekend?Â Smurfs from Sony.Â That’s going to be a tough sell as the little kids will want to see the fun loving three-apple tall imps, while adults will want to venture into superhero fare.Â Oddly enough, it’s movies like the Smurfs that do incredibly well during the holidays, so there should be some concern that Green Lantern may not take the top spot in the box office.
If Warner Bros. is going to release Green Lantern during the Christmas holiday, that is probably the best date to do it, as Christmas day sees the release of Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes, the Alvin and the Chipmunks sequel, Disney’s Princess and the Frog, and Fox’s Tooth Fairy.
Jonah Hex, meanwhile, rides into theaters a couple of months earlier, on August 06, 2010.Â Josh Brolin is still set to play the scarred western hero, with John Malkovich co-starring.
Since mum is the word on who is playing Green Lantern, who do you want to see weilding one of the most powerful weapson in the universe?Â And will WB go the Thor route and find someone that is in their mid-twenties?
Jimmy Hayward, the director behind the animated Horton Hears a Who feature, has been selected to direct DC Comics’ Jonah Hex movie. This follows the exit of scriptwriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who were previously scheduled to co-direct the film.
The character of Hex, known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate army uniform, was a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood. One incarnation of his comic book series saw the Western genre combined with supernatural elements, and it’s this aspect that was featured in Neveldine and Taylor’s script. The studio will likely keep the script, though it’s expected that Hayward will put his stamp on it.
Let’s hope “putting his stamp on it” does not equate to suckage.Â Previous directors up for the job included McG and Andy Fickman.Â The film is entering fast track production, and with Josh Brolin still attached to star, the film is expected to go before the lens in March or April of this year.
This will be Hayward’s first go at a live action movie.
