I don’t dream of Alexandre Astier anymore, I’ve gone American: I dream of Wil Wheaton!

Alexandre Astier you probably don’t know, which is a shame, because he’s a great guy. He’s a geek by his own account (he played Warhammer and his favorite superhero is Iron Man), and the creator of a great French tv show named Kaamelott (where he is writer-director-actor-editor and composer!). It began as a short-length program (about seven minutes a day) featuring King Arthur and his (mostly incompetent) knights. The funny, but very seriously done program lasted in this format for four seasons, before Alexandre turned it into... [Lire la suite]

Babylon 5 the movie, written in 2015, production in 2016?

It's the announcement made by Joe Michael Straczynski at the San Diego Comic Con yesterday. Now head of his own development studio, Studio JMS, he's planning to write the movie in 2015, and then propose its production to Warner Brothers first in 2016. Warner Bros owns all Babylon 5 rights except movie rights, which stayed jms' property. If Warner isn't interested, jms plans the development of the movie through his own studio. I will probably be a reboot, a new take on the story, given the age of the original actors.... [Lire la suite]

John Carter 2: other studios interested?

According to a "well-informed source" of John Sagar, responsible for the Facebook page "The Fantastic World of Edgar Rice Burroughs", ERB Incorporated would like to know now if Disney can make a final decision regarding the future of John Carter. If they answer a definitive "no" to the sequels, then ERB inc would ask them to relinquish what's left of their option (8 months until March of 2015). It seems like many parties would be interested for making a sequel if Disney let go. All this is of... [Lire la suite]

Neuromancer: 30 years already, and where is that movie?

Among my very favorite novels, there's Neuromancer by William Gibson, released on July the 1st of 1984 in the United States. It's a novel I re-read regularly, and each time I am taken by its peculiar atmosphere, very impressionistic. It's all by itself the founding novel of an entire science-fiction subgenre, named Cyberpunk. The cyberpunk is a wonderful playground, the heroes are in general at the bottom level, people that try to survive before giant corporations, as powerful as unhuman, and artificial intelligences in...
