Michael Green Hired to Rewrite the Prometheus Sequel

Dread Central - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 19:23

It was late October when we last heard anything about the Prometheus sequel, but today word has come that a (re)writer has been found to polish the script along with a few other details about what we might be seeing in it.

Per The Wrap, after working with Ridley Scott on a new Blade Runner movie, Michael Green ("Smallville," "Heroes," Green Lantern) has been hired to rewrite Prometheus 2 for 20th Century Fox. Jack Paglen (Transcendence) wrote the original draft of the screenplay.

In addition, multiple sources told the site that the “Untitled Ridley Scott Project” 20th Century Fox announced it will release in March of 2016 is Prometheus 2 (unofficial title). Production could start as early as this fall, and the sequel will apparently be much more “Alien-y” and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise.

Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple "David" androids (portrayed by Michael Fassbender).

Scott will produce again through his Scott Free banner though it’s unknown at this time if he will direct. Original star Noomi Rapace is also expected to return.

In the original film: Archeologist couple Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) discover a star map that they interpret as an invitation from humanity's forerunners, the “Engineers.” Determined to find out more about them, the couple board the scientific vessel Prometheus, created and funded by Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce), CEO of Weyland Corporation. Lead by mission director Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) and monitored by Weyland’s android David (Fassbender), the team of explorers find a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth and embark on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe, where they fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

'Prometheus' Sequel Will Be More 'Alien'-y!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 18:22

The second in a planned trilogy is finally gearing up for production…

TheWrap reports some exciting news Monday evening as 20th Century Fox has tapped veteran scribe Michael Green – who worked with Ridley Scott on a new Blade Runner – to rewrite Prometheus 2, originally penned by Jack Paglen (Transcendence).

Shooting is scheduled to begin this fall with a release of March 2016 in the cards. It currently doesn’t have an official title.

Prometheus served as an ‘unofficial’ prequel to Scott’s seminal 1979 sci-fi movie Alien, and the sequel that Green will write aims to be much more “alien-y” and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise, says the site.

Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple ‘David’ androids, which means there will be more than one Michael Fassbender on screen at the same time, according to an individual familiar with the project.

'Saints Row' Dev Pulled The Plug On A Next-Gen Post-Apocalyptic Western

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 17:43

This makes me sad.

Volition, the developer that continues to bring us the amazing Saints Row series was working on a next-gen open world post-apocalyptic Western, code-named Zeus. Before you get excited, it’s been canned. The sad news comes from a GDC panel last week, where Volition senior producer Greg Donovan gave us hope before promptly ripping it from our hands.

The reasoning behind the cancellation? They wanted to be responsible.

“Right or wrong, we know we could’ve made this game,” Donovan said. “But it would’ve taken too long. It wouldn’t have been the responsible thing to do.”

I think I can speak for all of us when I say screw responsibility — I want a next-gen open world post-apocalyptic Western from the makers of Saints Row!

Sadly, it’s not happening. Pity, because I’m sure it would’ve been fantastic. At the very least, Volition is currently working on a “top secret” game that is using some of the foundation set for Zeus. Hopefully we’ll hear more about that soon.

Screen Gems Developing Underworld: Next Generation

Dread Central - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 17:28

2012 saw the release of Underworld: The Awakening, the fourth installment in the mega-popular Underworld franchise, which introduced Selene and Michael's hybrid daughter, Eve. Will Eve become the new Selene in future installments? Read on for details!

Bloody Disgusting reports that they've learned Screen Gems is actively developing a fifth installment in the series, tentatively titled Underworld: Next Generation. Though no plot details have been revealed, the title certainly implies that Eve will be the main protagonist of the film, but we can only speculate at this point in time.

Len Wiseman will produce, and the studio is currently seeking a writer and director. Kate Beckinsale is not yet officially attached, though that could of course change as the project inches its way closer to reality.

[Random Cool] Big Kahuna Burger Commercial

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 17:25

That’s one tasty burger!

I pay for all sorts of ridiculous channels on my DirecTV, yet I don’t get El Rey. This sucks because I didn’t like the pilot of Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”. And even though I disliked it, I felt there was potential, and I do want to see where it goes. Unfortunately, I’ll have to wait until it’s on Netflix.

Those of you keeping up with the show can enjoy a nod to Mr. Tarantino with the on-screen debut of the commercial for “Big Kahuna Burger”, debuting in a brand new episode this Tuesday at 9pm on El Rey Network.

Based on the cult-classic film of the same name, “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is centered around bank robber Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona) and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz), who are wanted by the FBI and Texas Rangers Earl McGraw (Don Johnson) and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) after a bank heist leaves several people dead. While on the run to Mexico, Seth and Richie encounter former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, whom they take hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensues when the group detours to a strip club that is populated by vampires. They are forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive. The series deepens the tone and expands the storyline of the film, adds new characters and backstories and explores the Mesoamerican mythology behind the creatures inside the club.

[Interview] Fabian Rangel Jr Talks Kickstarter and Self Publishing in "Doc Unknown"

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 16:10

Fabian Rangel Jr is a pioneer in the world of independent comics having self-published the first volume of “Doc Unknown” on Comixology submit, he proves to be an inspiration for the little guy. Doc is a pulpy noir centered on the titular protagonist. He’s dynamically interesting as he defends a very strange city from every machination of pulp tradition you can think of creating a consistent and impressive indie title that oozes heart.

Recently Fabian took to Kickstarter to crowdfund a one shot that featured one the Doc Unknown’s main antagonist’s Boss Snake. After that campaign was a resounding success, Rangel and his artist Ryan Cody have taken to Kickstarter again to generate funding for Volume Two of Doc Unknown. The outcome was fully funding the project in a mere three days, but the effort didn’t come easy. It was the result of a tremendous amount of work.

So hit the jump to hear all about this insanely inspiring project. How to find an audience, how to publish an indie comic, and the best way to pursue crowd funding for a comic you’re passionate about.

Bloody Disgusting: Introduce Doc Unknown for the uninitiated.

Fabian Rangel JR: Doc Unknown is a supernatural action adventure series. Kind of like a cross between Batman The Animated Series and Hellboy. It introduces a new pulp hero and the city he defends where a lot of strange stuff happens on a nightly basis. The first volume introduces him, and the second volume is all about having fun in his world.

BD: Where did the inspiration for Doc Unknown come from?

FRJR: I had been making comics for three years and it was very financially draining. I wasn’t sure if I could keep it up. I decided to do one more, and I thought about what type of comic I wanted to do more than anything. I wanted to do a mashup of Batman: The Animated Series, Hellboy, and Planetary. Which are my three favorite things. It was all or nothing with Doc Unknown.

BD: And, the book oozes heart.

FRJR: I wanted to do something with all sorts of weird stuff. I made a list of things I wanted to see. I tossed as much crazy stuff in as I could think of. I didn’t want to get ridiculous. Like there are no nuns shooting machine guns, and zombies. I try to keep to things that still fit within this world.

BD: Why Kickstarter? Why Comics? Why Self-Publish?

FRJR: When I was 11-13 I first saw an issue of Thor at a convenience store. I had read mythology growing up so I had recognized Thor, and I was like “what, what’s this!?” I’d buy a comic every now and then, and then in middle school I had a teacher who told me I could write. I didn’t know that was a thing that not everybody could do. I started writing all the time. I told people I wanted to be a writer. But once high school came along, music took over. Throughout my twenties I was in bands, going on tour, putting out albums. When I was turning thirty that stopped and I still needed a creative outlet. I had got back into reading comics in 2003, so I tried writing comics. I always enjoyed writing, and comics were my favorite things to read. I just wanted to see if I could do it.

I got this job, and started to have a disposable income. So I hired artists. The first book I ever did was “Extinct.” Which was a werewolf comic that was published with 215 Ink. I self published the first two volumes of “Extinct” totally on my own in black and white. By the time the third one was about to be released, I had got it colored and submitted it to 215. They picked it up and I did two other books with them. I was still self-publishing little anthologies on the side. I was consistent with self-publishing. Doc Unknown is definitely the most popular thing I’ve done. Seeing Ryan draw my scripts is a total pleasure.

I didn’t think I could do a Kickstarter. With Doc Unknown it was perfect timing. We got the book on Comixology submit, number one came out in March which was when they launched submit. I saw more people adding me on Twitter and Facebook telling me they liked the book. I can’t quit my job and pay my bills because of the book but my fanbase definitely grew. Once volume one was all done I had the idea to do a Boss Snake kickstarter. We set the bare minimum, just to cover for art. I knew that if I could pull off Boss Snake then that’d be how I made comics in the future. Luckily it went to 300% funded. I still had money out of pocket cause I got carried away with stretch goals. Kickstarter is cool though, because there are people on there that I don’t even know. A whole group who just uses the site to fund things, it’s a preorder system that pays for the art.

BD: You don’t see yourself going to Publishers?

FRJR: That’s the first thing you do. The Pitch. If no one wants to do it, and you believe in the project go to Kickstarter. I did pitch Doc Unknown. I either got straight up rejected or straight up ignored. It was really surprising to me. Since I thought Doc Unknown was the home run. I believed that if I actually got it done there would be an audience there and I believe that turned out to be correct.

BD: How did the “Five Ghosts” backups happen?

FJR: I started reading “Five Ghosts” because I saw it in Previews and thought it looked cool. Plus the guy’s name is Fabian. I met Frank (Barbiere) at HeroesCon, he saw my name and recognized Doc Unknown. He had the first two issues, and we compared notes. We had a connection where we were both writing a pulp book. He had been doing comics for eight years, and talked about how hard it is. He had a really good year last year, and this year. Our common ground lead us to talking about a Doc Unknown ad in “Five Ghosts” and a couple hours later I suggested a backup and he was totally into it. I think fans of either book will like the other.

BD: What is it about pulpy noir that interests you the most?

FRJR: I feel like the stuff that happens in these books isn’t possible in 2014. The mystery aspect of our lives is taken away by technology. Something that happens in the 30’s and 40’s could have magic. I like to think that stuff like this could have happened back then. Now everything is explained, we now know there are no such thing as monsters in the traditional sense. I think that era is right on the verge of unreality and reality. World War Two has always been appealing to me, and prohibition era violence. It’s all real dark and happening in the shadows, which makes it really appealing to me.

BD: How far have you outlined Doc Unknown?

FRJR: Doc Unknown is completely outlined. When I first started the plan was four issues and that’d be it. When you read the first volume it ends but you can definitely see how there could be more. The Boss Snake one shot showed that we can keep this going. I thought “What can I realistically get away with?” I could write a hundred issues of Doc Unknown, I don’t think people will give a shit after issue 30. Right now, we have a thousand readers at best. So I think I can tell the story I want to tell, and have people support it at 12 issues. Kind of like a movie trilogy. Each volume will be four issues, and I’ve never done multiple volumes of a comic before. I really like series that end. I like Planetary because it ended, Y The Last Man, I love books with a definite beginning, middle, and end.

BD: Very few people pursue one project throughout multiple Kickstarters, and your key strength is building your audience.

FRJR: To fund the first four issues I ended up getting a loan from my bank, a loan from my retirement plan, actually two. Two maxed out credit cards, I hustled and found more ways to get money to get this book out on time. We did whatever we could to self publish under a bi-monthly schedule. Some big companies don’t even stick to something like that. I wanted to show the people reading my book we were a reliable team. I think that was one of the reasons our first Kickstarter was so successful. We delivered on time. With the exception of some of the international orders, everyone got their stuff in December. Three months later we’re back on Kickstarter, which was a gamble. I think we’ve shown that we know what we’re doing. We have a lot of repeat people funding us. But, we have a ton of people who are funding us at the level where they get the first volume. It makes me really happy.

BD: What can you tell me about Doc Unknown Volume Two?

FRJR: Volume Two is a little more comprised of standalone adventures. First up we’ve got the backups from “Five Ghosts.” Then Ryan (Cody) approached me. He has his own story he wrote and drew. He tried to sell himself to me, and he’s the other half. I totally trust him. He’s got a Batman Beyond type story in there, it’s really cool. We’re including Doc Unknown #5, that’s half the book. Then we have Doc Unknown and the Frequency of Fear. A 32 page issue that will show what he’s doing now and the lead up to volume three. Planting seeds and introduces a new villain who is a major threat for Doc. He’s a totally crazy guy who likes to destroy. I really stepped up the action. Then we conclude with Songs of the Forgotten. It’s definitely more influenced by stuff like Planetary. I’m having fun with new characters and different aspects of the story. All this leads up to volume three which will hopefully hit Kickstarter in the fall.

BD: You’ve been quite the pioneer when it comes to digital publishing, do you still do print copies of your books?

FRJR: I definitely still do print on demand. I’ve used various printers. When did the first volume, I’d print a few hundred of each issue and sell them at conventions or on my bigcartel site. Single issues self-published are really hard to make your money back. Digital has made Doc Unknown way more available to people. It’s more convenient. Trades sell way better though, it’s everything you need in one book, and it looks good on a bookshelf.

BD: What advice do you have for Indie Self-Publishers.

FRJR: Be prepared to lose money and face rejection. Try not to let it get to you. Realize you can do anything. Do something that makes you happy and most of all do you. Once you get a book together submit it to Comixology submit. As far as Kickstarter I would say wait. Until you have a couple books under your belt and have a bigger audience. You need to build an audience where you can pull something like that off. Be reliable, do what you say your going to do.

You can find the kickstarter for Doc Unknown Volume 2 here.
Check it out and throw it your hard earned cash. The campaign may have been funded in three days but it can still use all the support anyone is willing to give it.

You’ll be able to find Fabian at Emerald City Comic Con at Table P1. Where you’ll be able to pick the first trade of Doc Unknown and the Boss Snake one shot.

First Two Stars Take Up Residence in Amityville House

Dread Central - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 15:43

At the tail end of last week, we learned that Dimension Films/Blumhouse Productions had tapped a director for their upcoming Amityville movie, bringing Maniac remake helmer Franck Khalfoun into the infamous house.

Now we've got the very first casting details for the flick, formerly titled The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes. Read on!

First up, our friends over on Bloody Disgusting broke the news over the weekend that Jennifer Jason Leigh (pictured) will topline the film, set to star as lead character Joan, a single mother who moves her three kids into the Amityville house, which of course has a very dark history.

The Wrap reports today that Disney Channel star Bella Thorne is also on board, likely being cast as one of Joan's three kids.

Dimension had planned on reigniting the popular horror franchise using a found-footage angle, but that idea has been dropped as the format appears to have fallen out of favor with discerning genre fans. Amityville remains scheduled for release on January 2, 2015.

Daniel Farrands and Casey La Scala co-wrote the script and are expected to produce with Jason Blum of hit factory Blumhouse.

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/24/2014 - 15:38

When Blizzard announced their plans to bring Diablo III to PlayStation 4, many Xbox fans were left wondering whether or not it’d also make its way to Microsoft’s new console. It seems like a no-brainer, but it sounds like the situation is a wee bit more complicated than that.

Though the Ultimate Evil Edition — which bundles Diablo III with its Reaper of Souls expansion — has only been confirmed for PS4, Blizzard is working on an Xbox One version too. Whether or not it releases however, is up to a pending contract with Microsoft.

This news comes from a chat with VideoGamer, where producer Alex Mayberry said “we are developing for Xbox [One] and PS4 simultaneously.

“I don’t know where we are with Microsoft right now so I can’t really comment on what that contract looks like.” he added.

If own the PC or Mac version of Diablo III, I hope you’re preparing for the arrival of Reaper of Souls. It releases tomorrow!
